If you blinked you would have missed the David Gregory assist to the GOP
If you blinked, then you missed it. Rick Santorum was on the panel on Meet the Press. The panel was discussing the Republican suit against the President.
David Gregory said that if a Republican President had delayed parts of the implementation as President Obama did, Democrats would have cried foul. Jennifer Granholm, former governor of Michigan, would have none of it. Granholm pointed out that during the Medicaid Part D implementation former President George W Bush delayed implementation of certain pieces and nobody said anything about it. She called the suit hogwash, ‘the legal equivalent of birtherism.’
Who is the journalist? Shouldn’t David Gregory had known that? Had she not been competent in knowing the realities that today’s journalists seem unable to find on their own, the wrong impression would have been left by his assertion-like question.
Jennifer Granholm also pointed out that Republicans voted overwhelmingly to delay the very provision they are suing the President for delaying. Did David Gregory not know that either?
But the most blatant expression of bias was likely a subconscious slip of the tongue that probably went unnoticed by most. David Gregory asked Santorum about the divisiveness in the Republican Party with respect to different policies.
Rick Santorum did a very good job of keeping the topic on the problems within the Republican Party. He even stated that they needed a positive message that spoke to the blue collar worker. He said that was the reason for writing his book “Blue Collar Conservatives: Recommitting to an America That Works.”
Unasked, out of context, and out of the blue David Gregory blurted out ‘the Obama economy’'. It is obvious where his thoughts were. You could see a slight controlled surprise on Jennifer Granholm’s face.
Many in the Conservative sphere love to talk about the Liberal Media. Most Liberals are still trying to find it.
