Gov. Bob McDonnell (R-VA)

Gregory: wow Obama killed Al-Awlaki
and defended gay soldiers
Perry: send U.S. troops to Mexico!
Gregory: oh and some hippies were
arrested in New York
Gregory: how does Obama win an election
with this economy?
Patrick: he says Government is there to
help people help themselves
Gregory: I see
Patrick: or how about this - Obama is on your side!
Gregory: Bob - I see Obama is starting
to call out Republicans
McDonnell: The election is about Jobs,
Debt and Kenya
Gregory: is that was the GOP debates
have been about?
McDonnell: not exactly
Gregory: The Wall Street Journal surveyed
CEOs and they’re not happy
Patrick: In Massachusetts we’re creating jobs
by investing in the future
Gregory: what about Obama’s jobs bill?
Patrick: it would help America which is
why it won’t happen
McDonnell: Obama is blaming the Tea Party
just because they wanted to default on our debts
Gregory: that’s too bad
McDonnell: Also Obama hates America
Patrick: where do you get off attacking
McDonnell: Dodd-Frank caused the recession
which proves Obama doesn’t believe in the
good old U S of A
Gregory: you oppose Obamacare
McDonnell: this is going to be a campaign issue
because Americans don’t want health insurance
Patrick: in my experience a lot of people
like health care
Gregory: Chris Christie says we shouldn’t
demonize the rich by raising their taxes by 5%
McDonnell: people are begging Christie to run
because they are sure the GOP will take the
White House in 2012
Gregory: that makes no sense
Patrick: he won’t run because he doesn’t want
to lose to Obama
Gregory: Can Obama carry Virginia?
McDonnell: Virginia is a shining city on a hill that
gets gobs and gobs of federal money
Gregory: what about the Red Sox
Patrick: I haven’t see a collapse this bad since
Bachmann won the Iowa straw poll
[ break ]
Gregory: Christie said he would commit suicide
rather than seek the Republican nomination
Murphy: that sounds about right
Noonan: the GOP base is primal
Dionne: the base keeps attacking its own candidates
Gregory: So the question about these candidates
is - Screw, Marry or Kill?
Becerra: whether to commit suicide is one
of the biggest decisions our candidates can make
Murphy: the GOP is drunk right now but they
will sober up and vote sensibly for Romney
Noonan: we can lose America in the next
three years if we don’t elect a true psychotic
Dionne: I believe we as a nation can pull this off
Becerra: you don’t want to lose Latino voters
Gregory: there are a lot of Hispanic voters
Murphy: If Romney moves to Perry’s right on
immigration it’s going to hurt him against Obama
Becerra: the GOP is screwed with Latinos
Murphy: But Obama is screwed with the economy
Palin: there mere Presidency would shackle
Dionne: she belongs on another planet
Gregory: She’s a kingmaker isn’t she?
Noonan: No Fluffy she’s a very cunning grifter
Murphy: Don’t underestimate Rick Perry
Gregory: can Obama win?
Dionne: he’s reached agreements with the GOP
and now he’s finally gone to the people with
what he believes
Gregory: Is Obama a fighter?
Becerra: Yes He Could - if the GOP
Wouldn’t Stop Us
Dionne: Bob McDonnell blamed Obama for not
making the Tea Party see reason
Noonan: a true leader would make Republicans
not act crazy
Murphy: he drove the GOP away by running as a
socialist by enacting a GOP health care reform law
Becerra: the Jobs Bill is full of Republican ideas!
Noonan: so Democrats won’t vote for it!
What a failed leader!
Gregory: what’s the deal with Occupy Wall Street
Dionne: Finally! An organized Left!
Gregory: Peggy you have to give Obama credit
for getting a deal with Boehner
Noonan: [ mixing cocktail ] sorry what?
Gregory: anyone have a problem with Obama using
a drone to kill an American?
Becerra: would rather he pushed him out a window?
Murphy: the Florida primary could decide
Gregory: Let’s talk about Chris Christie some more
Murphy: why the hell not [ takes drink from Noonan ]
Gregory: Is Congress shut down for the next year?
Becerra: not at all - we plan on working almost
100 days next year
Gregory: Perry wants to invade Mexico
Noonan: I’ll drink to that
Gregory: and that’s another episode of
Meet The Press
