David Gregory Does His Job, For Once

This morning, on Meet the Press, he nailed John Boehner on the “Obama is a socialist” canard (emphasis in original):

RNC Chairman Michael Steele recently sent out a fundraising letter saying that President Obama and Democratic leaders in Congress are attempting a “socialist power grab.” Today on NBC’s Meet the Press, host David Gregory pressed House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) on whether such language was appropriate. Boehner tried to dodge the question, insisting that “you can call it whatever you want,” but the fact is that Obama’s the one scaring the American public. Gregory continued to ask whether Boehner believes Obama is a socialist, to which he finally admitted he doesn’t:

GREGORY: Do you really think the President is a socialist?

BOEHNER: Listen, when you begin to look at how much they want to grow government, you can call it whatever you want, but the fact is —

GREGORY: What do you call it though?

BOEHNER: This is unsustainable. We’re broke.

GREGORY: That’s fine. Do you think the President is a socialist?

BOEHNER: No!

GREGORY: Okay. Because the head of the Republican Party is calling it that.

BOEHNER: Listen, I didn’t call it that, and I’m not going to call it that.

    It’s amazing how it’s assumed in America that “socialist” is a dirty word. Never mind that so many aspects of society are socialist and perfectly accepted.

    it is interesting to listen to republicans these days. They are all deteriorating into sarah palin, word salad with as many nasty words thrown in (socialist, communist etc.) without making sense.
    It is almost funny when they are questioned they don’t believe what they actually are saying.
    No wonder the poor tea bigots are so confused!

  3. Rep Boehner is inconsequential and is a suspected homosexual philanderer and is weak on immigration reform. He does not speak for us.

    Reporter Gregory doesn’t have the guts to ask this question of an authentic conservative Christian. Unlike this gutless country club boy Boehner, I’m sure Rep. Tom Tancredo would hold the party line.

    -RPTH

    Carrot colored Boner is a joke. Isn’t he about due for some more moist weepy eyes on camera again like Glenn “Hydrocephalus Head”Beck? He must be getting a little self-conscious not being able to call the President a socialist like the other retards ( Bachman and Steele). C’mon Boner embrace your TeaGoomer, Inbredhead, Trailer Pope base.

    That’s the problem!
    These clowns all follow the party line. Why can’t they have, and express their own opinions? Not capable of forming one?

    Obamba’s policies are Socialist?? What’s wrong with saying that?? He’s taken over the Banks, GM, some 80%+ of Mortgages and wants full Government Control of Health Care and Student Loans. How is that NOT Socialist? America was built on Liberty and Individual Freedom … if you want socialism or communism go set up you own little Co-op or commune … nothing is stopping you.

    Boner is indeed carrot colored on the outside, but yellow inside … we need a real leader.

  7. What about Obama isn’t Socialist? I’d like it if he were more truthful with his intentions, rather than spew out these lofty goals with no details. Reminds me of Chavez, Castro, Hitler etc. other enigmatic speakers who masked their true intentions.

    Obama’s background is full of Marxist, Socialist, and Communist ties. Virtually all the people he hung out with were far Left Radicals. Many of his Czars and Cabinet Officials are Socialist radicals. Name some who aren’t !!

    Had the Media done its job BEFORE the election at least we’d have had a clear choice.
