Criticism of Barack Obama came from a surprising source Sunday.
Appearing on Meet the Press, former NBC Nightly News
anchor Tom Brokaw said the President “is going to have to answer for”
the explosion in the federal budget deficit that “happened on his watch”
(video follows with transcript and commentary):
Right after the debate on PBS, pseudo-conservative analyst David Brooks
hailed Joe Biden over Paul Ryan. “Biden naturally talks the language of
the kitchen table,” while Paul Ryan talked the language of conservative
think tanks like Empower America, where he used to work.
By Friday night’s NewsHour, Brooks shifted with the crowd, and agreed
that Biden was too rude, and certainly way too rude for a PBS set. (He
said the same in the NPR studio). Neither of his liberal counterparts
were agreeing, but Brooks went overboard in claiming Biden was even too
hot for "Hardball" [!]:
