  1. Meet The Press: David Gregory Irked by Michelle Bachmann Emphasis on Secret $105 Billion ObamaCare Funding

    By P.J. Gladnick | March 06, 2011 | 16:14

    The way David Gregory was carrying on during today's Meet The Press, you would have thought that he was irked by Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's revelation of only 105 thousand dollars in secret ObamaCare funding instead of the actual astounding 105 BILLION dollars. A clearly irritated David Gregory kept insisting that he only wanted to stick with "narrow budget questions" and acted increasingly frustrated as Bachmann kept returning to the 105 BILLION dollars of hidden ObamaCare funding that he did not want to even briefly talk about.

    Here is a portion of the interview of a clearly upset David Gregory as you can see in this video who obviously did not want to deal in the slightest with Bachmann's revelation which would have been major news to the viewing public as well as a more detailed transcript below the fold:

    REP. MICHELE BACHMANN: ...There was a Congressional Research Service report that just was issued in February, and we discovered that secretly, unbeknownst to members of Congress, over $105 billion was hidden in the Obamacare legislation to fund the implementation of Obamacare. This is something that wasn't known. This money was broken up, hidden in various parts of the bills. And we have worked very hard to discover $61 billion in cuts that we could put forward, get to the president. So, in effect, David, we've taken one step forward and two steps back because we've found now that $105 billion had already been implemented.

    MR. GREGORY: All right. But that--but, Congresswoman, you heard the president this week offer...

    Notice how often during the interview that Ms Bachmann keeps returning to the topic of the $105 billion of ObamaCare funding during the interview which is countered in each instance by David Gregory desperately trying to change the subject.

  2. Luv it when the winbagger mama has to use props like this. She knows her base doesn't know what one hundred billions dollars is...

    Rather than feel condescended to, the bagger base says "gee, ain't she puuuurty...and real schmaaarrrrt too!"

  3. Only a total jackass would come up with that instead of being outraged by this.

    He has gone off the deep-end.

    I see his posts when people quote them and its gotten deeply rascist and sexist lately. Off the scale actually. I see why he is sometimes banned.
  6. lmao, this is the most retarded thing I've seen since moron called Africa a country.

    The topic is the republican budget cuts to education, the EPA, etc.. but the idiot only wants to run with the only talking point she knows. This is typical of the Party of the Dumb as they only stick to the talking points, never venturing outside the talking point of the day.

    Also, she has to keep the attention on this as the idiots who vote for her may find out that her family collects millions in farm subsidies. Talking about budget cuts may bring up the topic of subsidies which would really cause problems.
  7. The fact that Michelle Bachmann and the term presidential candidate can be said with a straight face demonstrates the complete meltdown of the republican party.

    Obama thought Africa is a country? Can't say as I'm surprised.

    105 billion in hidden costs... should dominate the conversation.

    federal funding of everything needs to be cut.. drastically... including the military.

    it was pointed out that last MONTH we were about twice as short as the entire budget for the year 2007.

    and those farm subsidies should be cut drastically too, we are running out of water so why I we subsidizing the export of food.
  10. Look, she made her case, now move on to the next point.

    I think that was Gregory's position.

    Bachmann was stuck on the point. What was she wanting? Gregory to show outrage?

    If he did that, he would not be doing his job.

    His job is just to ask questions, reasonable follow up questions.

    Backmann acted like Rainman, mindlessly repeating the point that Gregory had already acknowledged.

    I'm not diminishing the 105 billion hidden costs, but I would like to hear a response from the Obama administration, etc. rather than Bachmann look mindless into the camera and just repeat her talking points.

    She is like a Stepford wife at times...
