Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)
Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-WI)
Gregory: OMG President Hilary Rosen
attacked Ann Romney!
Audience: oh noe
Gregory: The Secret Service
went to prostitutes!
Audience: oh dear I hope President
Rosen is all right
Gregory: good morning Timmy -
let’s talk about only things
Mitt Romney wants to talk about
Gregory: Why is the recovery so slow?
Geithner: the business of America is
business and business is doing great
Gregory: I see
Geithner: the Bush recession was bad
and the crisis in Europe didn’t help
Gregory: why did my stocks go
down in last two weeks?
Geithner: don’t be so selfish Fluffy
Gregory: what about your own money?
Geithner: I invest all my money
in beanie babies
Gregory: Mitt Romney said Obama
fired 92% of women
Geithner: that’s utterly ridiculous
Gregory: is it?
Geithner: George W. Bush caused
a massive recession and men lost
their jobs in construction
Geithner: then Republicans got elected
and fired teachers which is ladies work
Gregory: we all feel that gas prices are
the most important thing ever
Geithner: gas prices go up when
the economy improves
Gregory: they do?
Geithner: also Iran saber-rattling
Gregory: but Mr. Secretary that
it is uncertain!
Geithner: grow up Fluffy
Gregory: Obama raised the debt!
Geithner: Bush borrowed to pay for two wars,
tax cuts and a prescription drug giveaway
Gregory: but Tom Coburn says
we will be Greece in 24 months
Geithner: are you fucking serious Fluffy?
Gregory: you don’t see a debt crisis?
Geithner: not particularly
Gregory: but the debt!!
Geithner: hey if we followed Obama
proposals the debt would go down
Gregory: should we raise the debt ceiling?
Geithner: no if you want to wreck the economy
Gregory: income tax forms are too
long and complicated!
Geithner: believe me I know that
Gregory: why doesn’t the President reform
taxes instead of taxing poor rich people
Geithner: I’m sure you know we
have all kinds of proposals to
improve the tax code
Gregory: no one tells me anything
Gregory: the Buffet Rule would only
raise $5 billion a year
Geithner: just because Republicans oppose
something doesn’t make it a bad idea
Gregory: that never occurred to me
Gregory: Republicans says we should
cut taxes on rich people because
they are job creators
Geithner: we tried that - how did it work out?
Gregory: my taxes went down and
I bought a house on Martha’s Vineyard
Geithner: so we should raise taxes
on poor people?
Gregory: Obama created an economic
recovery but it wasn’t big enough
Geithner: his policies got us out a worse
economic shock than the Great Depression
Gregory: so it’s s a success story?
Geithner: yes really Fluffy!

Gregory: OMG Vice President
Hilary Rosen attacked stay at home mothers!
Bachmann: I was shocked and insulted!
Gregory: of course
Bachmann: Ann Romney knows all
about suffering under high gas prices
Gregory: I see
Bachmann: women are paying thousands
of dollars in gas because of Obama
Bachmann: Obama attacked women!
Gillibrand: why are we talking about
Hilary Rosen when the Governor
of Wisconsin repealed an equal pay law
and Obama’s health insurance favors women
Bachmann: Romney is very smart
unlike Barack Obama
Bachmann: Dodd-Frank is costing
Bachmann: Obama has caused
high grocery prices!
Gregory: wow this is a such an
Audience: oh absolutely
Gregory: but I would like to see
you two in a pillow fight
Gillibrand: I’m sure
Gregory: remember when Hilary Clinton
attacked women who bake cookies -
that was awesome
Gillibrand: if half the people in Congress
were women we sure as hell wouldn’t
be debating the evils of contraception
Bachmann: I was shocked and insulted
when Hilary Clinton attacked women
Bachmann: Obama raised gas
prices on women!!
Gregory: yes I think we got it
Bachmann: 15 years from now America
will cease to exist if Obama is reelected
Gregory: is that so?
Bachmann: also Obama will throw old
women out in the streets
Gillibrand: I would like to respond to that
Gillibrand: this a very weird tv show
Gregory: do you think of Ann Romney
is a bad person?
Gillibrand: the GOP want employers to
take health care away
Bachmann: no we want women to make
their own choices
Gillibrand: that’s absurd
Gregory: should the Secret Service
be going to prostitutes?
Bachmann: the White House made
David Vitter go to prostitutes!
Gregory: thanks for coming ladies
[ break ]
Gregory: what about the gender gap?
Murphy: idiot talk show hosts love
this stupid issue but no one else cares
Gregory: Queen Hilary Rosen shocked America!
Guthrie: I’m not sure the nation can
ever recover from Rosen’s remarks
Gregory: Romney wants to get rid
of Planned Parenthood
Todd: Romney wants to close the gender
gap by manufacturing a controversy
Gregory: but I love a good fake controversy
Murphy: Obama doesn’t want to talk about jobs
Gregory: Bachmann makes a good point
that the most important thing in America
is the price of gas
Ford: exactly - Michele Bachmann made
some really good points
Gregory: so true
Ford: also women were very insulted
by Emperor Rosen
Gregory: I love you Harold
Ford: Mitt Romney is poised
to make big gains!
Murphy: Obama is a failure because
the Supreme Court is reviewing
his heath care law
Todd: this will be a very negative campaign
Ford: Mitt Romney will probably
win if he talks about big issues
Gregory: Romney can seem almost
human on Saturday Night Live!
Murphy: it might be good idea but
remember Mitt Romney is not funny
Gregory: Is the George Zimmerman
case about race?
Cosby: it’s about guns!
Cosby: when you have a gun you
mean to kill somebody
Gregory: what about Barack Obama?
Cosby: Obama is Sisyphus!
Gregory: was Sisyphus Muslim or Kenyan?
Cosby: he inherited a massive recession
and people pretend it never happened!
Cosby: critics act like he had a surplus --
our political discourse is just pathetic and sad
Gregory: and that’s another episode
of Meet The Press
