Did Andrea Freaking Mitchell just say that Obama was asked fake questions because
there were no reporters there and the military asked them? Is she freaking serious.

2. She's a total disaster this election season.
Every day is another embarrassment for her and NBC. Time to put her out to pasture.

3. Didn't hear that but she's gushing over the "Success of the Surge"
Time to turn off the tv and wait for Keith.

7. I can tell for a fact she said it. And then tried to walk it back with all BS about how she respects
the troops. If she repected the troops she would know that the military has public affairs officers and enlisted personnel who can write stories and conduct interviews. They run the Armed Forces Network for christsakes. Just because they did't have a pompus ass million over there asking questions does not equate to fake questions.

14. That's a damned shame
I did hear her say that she wasn't there and can't say anything for sure. But she slipped in her negativity, then.

It's times like this when I'm glad a lot of these shows don't have such a huge audience. Maybe it's mostly geeks like us who have already made up our minds. Hopefully her blather won't be too far reaching.

6. Yes, she did. Can't remember the exact words but that is what she was
indicating. She is really trying to tear him down on this trip just because she is not the Queen Bee.

21. But she also, during NBC News
tonight, said that it is a lot of "trash" that the interview with Maliki was mis-translated.

25. Ok.. Stop the presses.. Did she say it or not? ..We seemed to have MIXED results here..


Was it on one of the cable programs? ..If so, we can look up the transcript when it goes up.

If it was on the NBC Nightly News, I'm not sure if they post a transcript or not?

27. I don't know about NBC Nightly News...
...but on Hardball (I think it was Hardball) she was so pissed off that she wasn't there for any of the interviews that her face looked like she'd just sucked 18 lemons. But she did say that the translation story was B.S ("B.S." is of course my term). So she was trying to be fair. But she was not a happy camper.

28. I thought she started out a bit positive
and then turned real negative. My daughter and I disagreed on this, with her thinking she was negative completely, so I am unsure if I am right on this. To me it seemed like someone told her she was being too nice and to suck it up. Because to me, her whole attitude changed quickly.

29. I think she got irritated when she started to
lack of availability to the press, that they weren't included when he was meeting with the troops or talking about what was being said in meetings and certainly blamed Obama for that.

In the next breath she angrily reported that the military didn't like being used to seem to be promoting a candidate, that they didn't like being put in that position.

Seems to me if the military doesn't want to be hyping a candidate it is a wide choice not to fill the room with press taking photos and asking troops questions about Obama and visit.

30. Yeah, I just rewatched it again
and she was a little angry as she told Matthews that she could not attest to anything that was done or said when Obama was with the military because they (the military) were completely in charge. And the statement that "no other presidental candidate has ever done this" is a bit over the top because I am sure that she has not covered every presidental candidate that there has been. I don't even think she covers mccain does she? only Obama? Then after the commercial she was really teed off. It seemed that her anger built and that is why I wondered if she had someone whispering in her ear or if she juat go angrier as she talked.

32. How about that part where she claims The Surge is The Awesome....
... and that is just an indisputable fact?

What happened to reporters? I miss them.

I hate myself. :spank:

36. Andrea was in a real state over those military questions.
It was pretty amusing to watch. Her real problem is fear of having to pay a few bucks more of the family fortune in taxes if Obama is elected.
