Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL)
Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ)
Gregory: OMG Obama keeps attacking
Mitt Romney just for outsourcing jobs
Gregory: Ed did if Romney left Bain in 1999
why do SEC documents say he was
President and CEO
Gillespie: Romney left to save the
Olympics and America!
Gregory: so was he responsible for
decisions made after 1999 or not?
Gillespie: he retired retroactively!
Gregory: that’s hilarious
Gillespie: that’s the best we’ve got
Gregory: does he stand by decisions made at Bain for outsourcing jobs?
Gillespie: he had nothing to do with those terrible decisions which were made by Bain which is a wonderful company
Gregory: I see
Gillespie: also offshoring never happened and it’s sad that Obama would imply it ever happened although Romeny didn’t do it and it was
a good thing if he did do it
Gregory: does he believe offshoring is good?
Gillespie: Obama made Romney send jobs to China because he hates businesses
Gregory: I see
Gillespie: Obama is a European socialist forcing businesses to send jobs to Finland
Gregory: is offshoring good or not?
Gillespie: Businesses must be free to do anything they want!
Gregory: should we make Olympic uniforms in China
Gillespie: We should stand by our athletes
Gregory: are you having trouble
understanding my questions?
Gillespie: Obama caused the recession!
Gregory: Romeny said he had ‘no comment’
on the China-made uniforms
Gillespie: Romney will call China a
Gregory: why release only one tax return?
Gillespie: he’s very transparent -
he’s practically invisible!
Gregory: Romney told Ted Kennedy he should release more tax returns
Gillespie: Obama wrecked the economy!
Gillespie: also Obama is a corrupt
black guy taking payoffs
Gregory: we’ll leave it there
Gregory: Obama accused Romney of
committing a felony - that’s so mean!
Durbin: the SEC documents say he was
sole CEO and Romney says he had no role
Gregory: but the word felony is unfair
under the terms of Village Journalism
Durbin: what the fuck is Romney hiding
- he’s running from Bain and won’t
release any taxes?
Kyl: the Washington Post says Obama is fibbing!
Gregory: see I told you
Kyl: Obama caused jobs to go to China
Gregory: are you serious
Kyl: yes - Obama’s health care plan
sends jobs to Canada!
Gregory: should Olympic uniforms be
made in China?
Kyl: the government forces jobs out of America because liberals won’t lower our labor standards
Durbin: our tax policies encourage moving
jobs to other countries
Durbin: we need a President who will
create jobs here in America and not
weird foreign countries
Gregory: should we keep the Bush tax cuts?
Durbin: yes - for everyone but the top 2%
Gregory: but the rich are such nice people!!
Durbin: well we need the money
to cut the deficit
Kyl: that’s true but the last people we
should increase taxes on are our
Durbin: it’s been more than 10 years
- when are they are going to start
creating those jobs?
Kyl: any day now - I swear
Gregory: will the election resolve this
issue once and for all?
Kyl: I believe the GOP will keep the
Senate which will put pressure on Obama
Gregory: so you think Obama
will be reelected
Kyl: let’s get real - of course
Gregory: so panel the issue du jour
Murphy: the cynicism from Obama is so sad
Rosen: Romney ran on his business
experience and Obama is talking about it!
Woodward: SEC documents?
No rational person believes those!
Woodward: but Cayman Islands accounts
- that’s just weird
Norquist: Obama caused a decline in
America since WWII
Gregory: he did?
Norquist: indeed - his grandfather planned
all this while riding with Patton
Jealous: Obama hasn’t created jobs
and Romney is an unfeeling robot
Rosen: Obama has tried to create jobs
and the GOP in Congress keep blocking him
Rosen: what if other Americans hid
their money in Switzerland??
Gregory: if ?
Murphy: it’s so sad that Obama is trying
to win this election by pointing
out Romney is a jerk
Rosen: the GOP are preventing progress!
Woodward: partisan squabbling iz bad!
Jealous: I miss Jack Kemp
Gregory: Jack Kemp is dead dude
Jealous: Romney should act like he
cares about the poor 99%
Rosen: do you have any other ideas?
Murphy: Romney has to act like
he’s proud of Bain Capital instead
of cowering like an equity bunny rabbit
Rosen: Obama needs to pivot to
be the inspirational cool guy
we all remember
Gregory: Obama says he need to
tell a better story about his successes
Woodward: Obama and the GOP have
equally failed to cut Social Security
Murphy: Obama is a terrible President
and Romney is a terrible human
Gregory: what about your no-taxes pledge?
Norquist: all bow down before me!
Gregory: let’s not talk about Presidential politics
- let’s talk about Presidential books
Rosen: Nora Ephron's book is wonderful
Woodward: you can never go wrong
Jealous: most people don’t know that Bob Marley helped write the Declaration of Independence
Norquist: I’ve mostly been reading kid’s books
about tax monsters under the bed
Gregory: Bob talk to me about the
tragedy of Joe Paterno
Costas: he was an absolutely revered football
coach but he enabled a child molestor
Gregory: but he was such a good guy since he ran
a clean and ethical athletic program except for
the lawbreaking and child abuse
Costas: his players usually graduated from the school and didn’t often cheat in class
Gregory: my god that is so admirable
Costas: however power corrupts and they built a fucking statue to Joe Paterno
Gregory: even so - how do you jump from sports hero worship to covering up for child rape?
Costas: the NCAA will give the school the death penalty - meaning not the actual death penalty
but they can’t play football for a year
Gregory: it’s death!
Costas: hey they brought this on themselves
Gregory: indeed it’s shocking
Costas: America cannot tolerate corruption outside the Catholic Church, Wall Street, Government
and journalism - this is college sports
- something really important!
Gregory: and that’s another episode
