What the heck is in the water at NBC anyway? First it’s Tom Brokaw, now it’s Andrea Mitchell. Both now out of the closet as pro higher gas taxes to ,,, you know … make us energy independent. My guess is they won’t be driving less, just you.
This afternoon Andrea Mitchell is discussing Paul Ryan’s proposal that would cut the budget by $6.2 trillion over 10 years, with Republican Vin Webber & Democrat Martin Frost. The clip begins withFrost’s silly statement that Ryan punted on taxes and concentrated on spending. Ridiculous! Ryan is the first politician to take on reform of the budget busters Medicare and Medicaid. And his guy, Obama has punted on the entire fiscal mess, that, by the way, he and Washington Democrats blew up in two years, turning a bleeding open wound into a gaping gash.
But what really makes this worth watching is Andrea Mitchell’s out of the blue suggestion to make us energy independant.
Clearly NBC is paying these folks too much. Higher gas taxes would clobber the very hard working people these libs purport to care about. And my guess is these folks won’y be cutting their travel. Just for kicks, here’s the Brokaw interview with Obama, December of 2008.
