Meat, the Press

What’s wrong with David Gregory? Look at his Meet the Press panel today on the economy:

Alan Greenspan, who on Oct. 23, 2008, had to admit the following to a Congressional committee:

Those of us who have looked to the self-interest of lending institutions to protect shareholders’ equity, myself included, are in a state of shocked disbelief.

Jim Cramer, who was eviscerated last year by a fake news anchor?

And, Mitt Romney? Are you fistfrakking me? Romney, whose answer to the recession is “apply Reganomics?”

The only panelist with a lick of cred on the panel today was Gov. Granholm. Why the hell are we still listening to these people, who were so utterly, utterly wrong?

  1. Governor Granholm has credibility? In which alternative universe is that? Just trying really hard to create jobs, while they evaporate around you, is not a qualification IMO. Perhaps – maybe – Granholm is doing a bang up job and things would be much worse without her. But it’s damn hard to say, it’s like a surgeon who’s operating on a patient spurting out blood by the gallon. The OR is a hive of activity, and the surgeon is suturing and cutting frantically. It all looks very impressive. She might be doing great work, but if the patient dies anyway, the idea that said surgeon is well qualified simply because she did a lot of cutting makes zero sense.

    If you’re going to pick a governor to bring in who is qualified, how about picking a state where they’ve managed to hold down unemployment – Hawaii, Utah, Kansas, Texas.

    1. Bruce, I did write “…a lick of…” meaning “a little…” Reviewing the appearance, I remember that I wrote it impressed that Granholm had the yarbles to suggest that the United States government has a role to play in sticking up for American markets and also because she debunked the myth Romney was spouting about the $73 an hour wage, which is utter bullshit. Look, I don’t know what you do about Michigan. I do know that Michigan is not a situation that’s snuck up on us—there was this filmmaker who made his first film about the auto industry in Michigan in 1989…what was that guy’s name again?
