The Sunday Morning Talk Shows: The Review

January 25 Image
PREFACE:

On FNS, John McCain actually criticized Obama’s”close Gitmo in a year “policy” by suggesting John Boehner’s you got to know the logistics first” angle.

On TW. Nancy whispered sweet nothings in George Stephanopoulos’s Gregory’s ears. For his part, Steph was taken aback by how important she is.

On MTP, Larry Summers was almost clueless.

On FTN, Bob Schieffer reacted to Larry Summer’s argument that all government spending is a form if stimulus with silence.

JOHN MCCAIN ON FOX NEWS SUNDAY. Host Chris Wallace’s first guest on FOX News Sunday was John McCain, who postured that his failed Senate run would give him more posture to be proactive in the U.D. Senate. For the upcoming Obama stimulus spending package, McCain well we should eliminate excess spending.

McCain criticized Obama’s stance on Gitmo, pointing out that you ought not to announce freedom for the inmates before you’ve decided what do with them.

And he announced that he had “no regret over Sarah Palin. As if she damaged the campaign in actually view or any but the lefties and the self-appointed GOP attention seekers.

NANCY ON ABC’s THIS WEEK. Steph introduced Speaker Nancy Pelosi as the “most popular woman in Washington.” She angered, “We need more women [in politics].” (Sorry, Nancy, but Ned failed miserably against Lieberman in Connecticut a few years back.)

LARRY SUMMERS ON MTP. David Gregory’s first guest on NBC’s Meet the Press was a man seen by Obama as decidedly less fit to handle the office o Treasury Secretary as the tax cheat Tim Geithner, Larry Summers. Summers said that his job was to brief the President every morning on how bad the economy he has inherited is.

Obama will address the problem of earmarks without doling out earmarks to his Congressional cronies.

Gregory confronted Summers with the observation that there was very little genuine stimulus in Obama’s package. Summers responded, basically, that any type of government spending stimulus.

JOHN BOEHNER ON MTP. For the Republicans, John Boehner spoke. Boehner said that there was a lot of slow-moving governor spending which will not work. The American people, he said, want a rescue package that works. He spoke of the Republican stimulus plan, which was pretty solid, market-wise.

Earlier, he spoke to Clinton.

JOE BIDEN ON FACE THE NATION. From Wilmington, Vice President Joe Biden was host Bob Schieffer’s guest, his 53rd on such show. Schieffer estimated that Biden was following the most powerful vice President in history. Biden said that he only wanted to be the “last guy in the room when a president makes an important decision.

Joe Biden stated confidently that more American soldiers will die in Iraq than lately under President Bush. He promised that he will remain talkative and outspoken, but he will have to remember that he is not president.
