Brzezinski said Obama "claimed" McCain "flip-flopp" on Bush tax cuts -- but it's not a "claim"; it's a fact

Summary: On MSNBC Live, Mika Brzezinski stated that Sen. Barack Obama "claimed" that Sen. John McCain "had initially opposed the tax cuts and was flip-flopping, just to get elected," and aired a clip of McCain saying, "Senator Obama has stated very clearly his desire to increase Americans' taxes." But Brzezinski did not acknowledge that Obama's "claim" that McCain reversed his position on the Bush tax cuts is in fact true, or that, contrary to McCain's assertion, Obama has proposed tax cuts for the poor and the middle class.

2. McCain was against the tax cuts but once were in place he wanted them kept
He justified it by saying it would be the equivalent of a tax increase if the tax cuts were not made permanant.

3. She routinely soft pedals, under reports, coddles and throws soft pitches.
She's a really weak link and not even within driving distance of being a reporter.
