Whatever They Did With the REAL Bob Schieffer This Morning is Alright With Me

They can keep him.

The Pod Person in his place was a TIGER.

He ate her alive.

BOB SCHIEFFER: But the President has been there two-and-a-half years.
BOB SCHIEFFER: I mean, why hadn’t he done that yet?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI (overlapping): Well, he’s done a great deal of it.
BOB SCHIEFFER: What’s happened?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: I think if he hadn’t taken the actions he did that the
situation would be worse. He pulled us from the brink of a financial crisis, from an economic
crisis. And now we have to dig out of a deep– a– a deep debt. And– and we have to also make
it clear that we’re not getting into this situation again.
BOB SCHIEFFER: You were talking in a kind of a different way when unemployment went to
five percent under George Bush. What you said then that Americans are struggling with skyrocketing energy prices, gas is only three dollars a gallon then. And you said this morning,
this is January 4, 2008, “This morning’s jobs report confirms what most Americans already
knew–President Bush’s economic policies have failed our country’s middle class.” I mean,
aren’t Republicans entitled to say, you know, if then gas was three dollars and unemployment
was five percent and– and– and the President has failed the American people, don’t they have
a right to say that this President has failed the American people?

REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Well, if you want to go into the past, we can talk about
the past all you want. The public wants to know about the future. What are you going to do to
create jobs, good-paying jobs in our country?

BOB SCHIEFFER (overlapping): Well, what are you going to do?
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Well, as I said what the President has done has
improved the situation from where it may have been.
BOB SCHIEFFER: But the fact is the Congress has been in session since January and it’s done
basically nothing.
REPRESENTATIVE NANCY PELOSI: Well you can talk to Mister Boehner about that.
BOB SCHIEFFER: So it’s all their fault, it’s not your fault?

And here major dad and I thought Haley Barbour as lead-in for the show would be the highlight of the episode

    And it ain’t Bob Schieffer who wants “to go into the past”, let me tell you. That was some classic projection by San Fran Nan there.

  2. Dr Alice says:

    Holy crap, CBS has firing neurons! Who knew?!

  3. tree hugging sister says:

    Alien takeover. Only explanation.

  4. JeffS says:

    Alien takeover.

    Or maybe the aliens have been driven back home?

    Either way, I’m not complaining.

  5. Skyler says:

    Make no mistake, this is not Schiefer seeing the light. This is Schiefer setting up for a Hillary challenge to the Democrat nomination.

  6. Jim - PRS says:

    Thank you for providing the transcript. If I had listened to that California halfwit blather on I might well have had a seizure.

    Public speaking does not equate good leadershipThe problem with our system is that to be elected one must be a good public speaker.A la
    the high school debate team.
    Cicero never ran the Roman armies,Ceasar did,he didn’t give great speeches.
    Hitler ran Germany into the trashbin of history;gave great speeches,thou

  8. JeffS says:

    Probably so, Skyler. Regardless of the reason, it’s refreshing to see other than the unthinking adoration of Obama normally grunted out by the Lame Stream Media.

    But still…..eye of the storm. Eye of the storm.

  9. tree hugging sister says:

    Oh, I know THAT full well, Skyler. The JOY of it was in the sheer unexpectedness of the attack! We were shocked he let Haley Barbour go off pretty much unrestrained and unchallenged, but THIS ~ just delightful. Like real journalism.

  10. major dad says:

    I think it is so obvious even Schieffer couldn’t hold back. Hillary in 12? Not sure about that, nobama would pull the race card immediately.
