Hot Fudge Sunday February 13

Sundays bring us the political talk shows. If you see something interesting on one of them, jump on the comment board and talk about it. Unsurprisingly, Egypt dominates the shows this week. According to Politico, here is the lineup for this week’s shows:

  1. Monotreme says:

    Fareed Zakaria: the Egyptian people are concerned that they have traded Mubarak for a military dictatorship.

  2. Monotreme says:

    Candy Crowley now grilling White House budget director Jacob Lew. I love this woman.

  3. Mainer says:

    Am I the only one that was once an avid viewer of the Sunday shows that now rarely bothers turning them on?

    Crowley is grilling an administration type…..ok go for it now when will some one grill the Rebublicans about their magic budget to no where. Oh I see Ryan is on Fox that should clear the air……….think I will sort fishing tackle or build a new table saw stand…..both of much greater value than what now passes for tough interviews.

  4. Max aka Birdpilot says:

    Tea Party Republican freshman Schilling in MTP, when asked directly about what needed to be done with entitlements to help cut the deficits, first spouted TPer talking points about policy, when asked again, WOULD NOT give any specifics, just “Everything should be on the table”. That’s the kind of leadership we can expect?

    More of the same: pissing and moaning, but no real answers put on the table for debate.

  5. Mr. Universe says:

    Boehner is such a broken record. Cut spending, cut spending.

    What spending?

    You know…spending.

    He’s big on message, just not on specifics.

  6. Mr. Universe says:

    Best funny line by David Brooks:

    “Donald Trump is thinking about throwing his hair into the ring”

  7. Mr. Universe says:

    Interesting guest article tomorrow. From mclever.

  8. Monotreme says:

    Mr U said:

    Interesting guest article tomorrow. From mclever.

    Yes, I can hardly wait to comment on it. It’s a really well-done, thought-provoking piece.

  9. shortchain says:

    Looking forward to that, Mr. U.

  10. mclever says:

    OK, now I’m a little nervous… Don’t go too hard on me tomorrow, folks.

    Mr. U,

    Better than Donald Trump’s luchador mask. 😉
