Obama to Appear on ‘Meet the Press’

Source: The Daily Beast

Wow, President Obama must really want to talk the fiscal cliff. NBC announced Saturday that President Obama will appear on its heavy-hitting political talk show Meet the Press on Sunday. The president has not appeared on the show in three years. He will be interviewed by the show's moderator, David Gregory, who had been on vacation following an investigation by Washington, D.C., police. Even more nail-biting? The interview is set to air just hours before the fiscal-cliff deadline.

I predict that a contingent of people here will complain that David Gregory is a RW-shill, and another contingent will complain that something the President says means that he's "caving" to the Republicans.....

13. I think agreeing that Obama is from another planet

is disrespectful to both the man and the presidency, but what do I know? Which planet were they referring to? Africa?

6. "heavy-hitting political talk show"...really?

well that`s one of the funniest things i have read in the last few days.

`meet the press' has`t been relevant in years.

8. The "press" regardless of source hasnt been to relevant for a long time.

I mean come on, they let Bush 2 skate through most of his two terms and have been letting the republicans get away with far to much for decades without really confronting them with the facts that expose them as the liars that they (the republicans) are.

9. I'm hoping Gregory won't be predictably

rude to the President. Pres Obama did say he was going to take this to the American People and here it is.

11. I'm guessing in that little

meeting with the leaders he told them as much. I'll bet he also said that what he says on the show will be a report on their progress. I'll bet he also threatened the SOTU address and Inauguration speeches as vehicles to destroy them.

14. I think that David Gregory

Was a bit defensive about the media's role in not calling things as they really are, aka, claiming to be balanced in a situation that is entirely unbalanced.
