Greta did an interview with Karl Rove which really had the feel of a discussion around any one of our kitchen tables. He was absolutely on fire in this interview covering topics ranging from Obama “lecturing us about the need for transparency and bi-partisanship” in regards to the healthcare bill, and then closed door meetings, Robert Gibbs being insulting and dismissive with the White House Press Corp over healthcare, Dorgan’s retirement, and the pitfalls of letting the dems railroad this bill through. Whatever you may want to say about Karl, (and I will forever be lethally annoyed with him for Bush’s 8 years), he speaks the truth tonight without any spin.
Robert Gibbs is basically telling the American people ‘You want an answer to that, drop dead. We’re not going to give you an answer.’
(6:55) The way this process has been handled, has undermined the peoples confidence in this bill, has undermined peoples confidence in the congress, it has undermined peoples confidence in this president. If the president were smart, he would insist on a more transparent, not less; he would insist on a more bi-partisan, not a less bi-partisan; he would insist on the American people have more time to absorb this, rather than less.
And it gets better from this point on.
