Meet The GOP’s (* SHILLING ) Press David Gregory Disgracefully Describes Republican’s Position on Medicare As “Bold Leadership”

                                                 BOLD LEADERSHIP  REALLY, DAVID?

Notice how David Gregory frames the lead narrative for the exchange.

MR. DAVID GREGORY“This Sunday, is Medicare the new third rail of American politics?  Why the fight over the future of an entitlement for 47 million older Americans has become the key battle for 2012, tipping the balance in a closely watched special House race this week in upstate New York and emerging as a key sticking point in the budget battle as Republicans and Democrats go to the wire over the debt ceiling.”

David Gregory Missing The Forest For The Trees…Again.

Let’s remember who is probably writing this frat boy’s weekly Sunday morning scripts, shall we?  I think it’s safe to say we’d get more truth and entertainment from reading the Sunday comics.

What say you 3 Chics?  I don’t have the stomach to sit through a full hour of this bullshit every Sunday, but 2012 is amongst us, and we cannot afford to allow the shilling to go unchallenged.

    AP-GfK Poll: Americans believe budget can be balanced without Social Security, Medicare cuts

    By Associated Press, Published: May 23
    WASHINGTON — They’re not buying it. Most Americans say they don’t believe Medicare has to be cut to balance the federal budget, and ditto for Social Security, a new poll shows.

    The Associated Press-GfK poll suggests that arguments for overhauling the massive benefit programs to pare government debt have failed to sway the public. The debate is unlikely to be resolved before next year’s elections for president and Congress.

    Americans worry about the future of the retirement safety net, the poll found, and 3 out of 5 say the two programs are vital to their basic financial security as they age. That helps explain why the Republican Medicare privatization plan flopped, and why President Barack Obama’s Medicare cuts to finance his health care law contributed to Democrats losing control of the House in last year’s elections.

    Medicare seems to be turning into the new third rail of politics.(THIS LINE RIGHT HERE, IS TOTAL BULLSHIT) There is nothing new about MEDICARE and it’s political implications for candidates, NONE.WHATSOEVER!

    “I’m pretty confident Medicare will be there, because there would be a rebellion among voters,” said Nicholas Read, 67, a retired teacher who lives near Buffalo, N.Y. “Republicans only got a hint of that this year. They got burned. They touched the hot stove.
