Oh boy! And all it took was a scandal in a Republican’s administration:

Just on its surface, Gregory’s tweet is asinine enough:

https://twitter.com/Matthops82/status/421360849148596224

But when you consider that Gregory didn’t seem to feel that way about anything that happened on President Obama’s watch, his hackery grows exponentially:

Gee. He can’t recall. But maybe that’s because he’s still got his own burden to deal with:

Remember this?

What a colossal joke.

      So what -was- the most horrifically stupid question he’s ever asked?

    • ipgrunt

      It is a perfectly fine question to ask, but why isn’t he holding Obama to this standard? My health insurance is really messed up, because of Obama. Why aren’t they talking about this until Obama resigns from office?

      • Jeff Melear

        Obozocare was not about helping people with insurance but rather controlling with RFID chips!

      But isn’t that a very low standard? Not sayin’ much. lol

  • Love of Country

    The poor state run media has been biting their collective tongues for the last six years ….. and so they’re just dying to ask someone a relevant or pressing question …. anybody, really ….. just so long as there is an (R) before their name.

    • Howzah123

      They might just put some (R) RINO in office, just so they can pretend to be journalists again

      Karl Rove is probably on the phone with Gregory as we speak

  • jetch

    and it won’t end with this reporter, the leftwing media smells blood.
    as forthright as he is, I wonder what Christie thinks of his leftwing “friends” now. appeasing the left to win an election will only mean your hated by both sides!

    • Canadian in USA ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      The leftwing media not only smells blood, but this is a welcome “distraction” from the Obamacare debacle, Benghazi, IRS, etc.

      • GaylePutt

        But we’re not going to let them forget Benghazi, IRS, NSA, etc. And you can bet we’ll be sure to mention it in 2016. I don’t know how that witch has the nerve to even run after her disgraceful career.

      • Howzah123

        Exactly

        The Gates story suddenly vanishes off the front page

    • Howzah123

      If I were Christie I would ride the “I didn’t know” excuse ALL THE WAY

      He has nothing to lose. Christie actually might have a brain, based on his hilariously cynical press convo today

      I mean of course he knew right? It’s not about common sense anymore. In post Obama world, you have to be caught red handed as a Politician to be held accountable for ANYTHING. Otherwise you have plausible denial

      • GaylePutt

        Wonder what the pay off is for the poor staffer who takes the fall.

    • Kdiity

      So true and I didn’t think Christie was that stupid. I was wrong !! Hear that libby’s, I can admit when I’m wrong !! Try it sometime !!!

      • Frank Young

        And the left falls silent. Anyone surprised ?

  • JeffWRidge

    The lefty media’s double standard is breathtaking. It would never occur to them to hold Obama, Reid, Pelosi, et al, to this rule.

    • Rightturn

      If something like this were happening among the President’s executive staff, that would definitely be a fair question to ask of him. If it happens among people that report to the people who report to the people who report to the people who report to the people who report to the people who report to the people who report to the President, then that seems different. Double standards should have some sense of equivalency of circumstances.

      • Aron

        While true please explain Susan Rice? the best analogy is the captain of a Navy ship. if one of lowest seamen driving the ship runs it aground, the Captain gets fired. Even if that seaman reports to a petty officer, who reports to a work center supervisor who reports to a leading petty officer who reports to a Chief petty officer to who reports to a division officer who reports to department head who reports to the Executive officer who reports to the Commanding Officer.

        The man at the top is ALWAYS responsible for what happens under his watch, even if he could not have prevented it.

        • tedlv

          Right on, Aron! The top dawg is totally, completely responsible! Why else would people be paying him? Now, about that IRS/TEA party thing…

          • GaylePutt

            Funny how some time ago…can’t recall when…but Obama used Truman’s iconic phrase…The buck stops here. Right.

          • tedlv

            The Buck may have stopped near Obama, but he shooed it away quickly.

        • AirForceMomJo

          You hit the nail on the head with that analogy. It seems like Political office is the only place that you’re not held responsible

          • tedlv

            Great comment! Please read it carefully, and edit the second to the last word.

          • Leo

            I would narrow that down a little more…….to a Democrat holding political office.

        • mike_in_kosovo

          While true please explain Susan Rice?

          That’s “Immuni-(D)”… aka “the buck stops over there somewhere”.

      • Memphis Viking

        The difference here is one scandal under Christie vs scandals from several departments under Obama.

        • tedlv

          The dems are afraid of Christie because he appears to be a strong presidential candidate. I don’t like him or his politics in the slightest, and would not support him for that post. Nor do most folks I know. Dems don’t get that. I do, however respect him for taking responsibility for the actions of his subordinates, people he has been friends with for years. I do not believe he had no knowledge, nor do I believe Barry had no knowledge of the IRS investigations (which, BTW have not let up) or all the other “non-scandals”. This country is rotting. Something needs to be done. Republicans can help (but RINOS won’t), Democrats can’t. Vote, people, get this current nutty leadership out of office!

          • GaylePutt

            I disagree. The Democrats could help if they had any cajones to stand up to Obama and Reid. He’s ruining the chances of re-election for a lot of them. If they were true patriots, they’d put country before party.

        • Jerry Ellis

          Does anyone remember this statement…..”The touchstone of this administration will be, TRANSPARENCY AND THE RULE OF LAW” and we have received neither???

      • EndangeredNJRepub

        You really seem to be on the wrong side of a lot of things, don’t you? Remind me since when Governors answer to the president, or is there somebody in charge of governors that we don’t know about, and that we don’t vote for? But it seems Aron smacked you pretty well, better than I did, of course; so no “crushing” reply?

        I’m your new biggest fan.

        • Rightturn

          Hmm funny how even for a ‘troll’ I managed more upvotes than downvotes with my reply, figured that alone speaks for itself, no need to bother with any Navy comparisons. But if I must indulge, I’ll admit that I am unaware of any protocol that would call for one of the lowest seamen to direct the ship and of any situation in the past where this has gotten a Captain fired. So unless presented with an example to look over, I don’t deal in hypotheticals, only in reality as difficult as that may be for you to understand. But anyways, you’re again not making any sense. Let me try and help you through it. Are you confused about the distinction between federal executive and state executive positions?

        Shame them like they deserve.

    • Mark81150 Never/Trump/Hillary

      Just play the tapes side by side… and dare them to deny it now.. The mask is off for good. They cannot say with a straight face they hold those in power equally accountable.. Dems get “what do you like best about being president?” questions… ours get the “when did you stop boiling children?” ones..

      I expect the usual trolls to snark and make excuses, that’s what you do I guess when they have just seen the national press out themselves..

  • http://www.nleomf.org/officers/ FlatFoot

    Nope. No political bias at NBC at all. NBC executives never created an atmosphere where their underlings thought journalism bias is okay, either. No way, José. NBC’s flag is planted squarely at the apex of the moral/ethical highground… don’tchya know.

    Isn’t the burden on David Gregory to show that he has an above-room-temperature IQ by avoiding asking a question that, if Tim Russert (even as liberal as he was) had heard him ask it, would have got Greg a swift kick in the ass– and maybe even a literal one?

    • Zane Henry

      Russert was the only mostly-liberal newsman that took his job seriously and didn’t shy away from asking tough questions. He’s sorely missed in these times of fawning sycophants that trip over themselves to aid and abet this criminal administration.

    • http://youhavetobethistalltogoonthisride.blogspot.com/ keyboard jockey

      Russert actually did chew out Gregory before. We don’t have to guess how Russert would respond.

        “The twosome’s waitress somehow messed up their dinner order, and Gregory – who CBS is supposedly “enamored” with in their hunt for a Katie Couric replacement – let’s say, caustically reminded her how bad she erred.

        But the server wasn’t the only one who got a scolding: Russert chewed
        Gregory out for his tactless behavior. “Russert warned Gregory never to
        behave that way in front of him again,” says a spy. ”

  • TVree

    The left’s infatuation with this story is that there is a “possibility” that Gov Christie ordered his staff to cause as much friction against someone who disagrees with him. So all the questions and coverage is in dire hopes to uncover a conspiracy and destroy the man.

    Yet, when there is true scandal and proof of abuse in power by the party they’re devoted to supporting, these same members of the press are afraid of what they already know “their” lib leaders are guilty of committing. So, they skirt and avoid the hard questions, and pray (in the non-religious sense of course) that it just blows over. Then, when enough time elapses, they use the “damage is already done, let’s just move on, more pressing stories to cover.”

    The hypocrisy is completely mesmerizing.

  • Bill Phillips

    I actually had a similar thought as Gregory! “I am not a Bully” Christie has some splainin to do, IMO! Maybe he should hire one of those illegal aliens that he just gave ‘in-state’ tuition rates to …as Bridget’s replacement!

    I suspect one of the consequences the establishment media didn’t anticipate for its running cover for Obama’s many scandals is that people are not going to be impressed by its screeching over Republican scandals. I mean, seriously…IRS targeting; nothing to see here: Fast and Furious with over 300 killed; nothing to see here: Benghazi with 4 Americans killed; nothing to see here: imprisoning a poor fall guy for making a video; nothing to see here (I could go on and on and on, but you get it). Now, a Republican governor impedes traffic to punish a rival politician; eek – Republican corruption, summon the Kraken!

    I don’t think the independents are going to buy it – and the establishment media has done it to itself.

  • Ironside

    Silly people. Everyone knows that a traffic jam in metro NYC is of more importance to our nation that the Government spying on individuals, unfairly targeting them financially, providing arms to Mexican drug cartels or crippling our domestic energy industry, or letting Americans diplomats perish without lifting a finger. How naive can you be?

    • AZWarrior

      Yes, this is a “real scandal” as opposed to Benghazi the “phony scandal” they say. Tell the families of the four dead Americans that and see what they have to say.

  • CountMahdrof

    The real disgrace is NBC News. Tim Russert managed to squelch most of his partisan leanings for many tears on MTP, and the show was respected on both sides of the aisle. Yet, when forced to replace Russert, they chose an empty-headed partisan raised on GOP hatred in NBC news rooms. Couple that with the blatant partisanship displayed on MSNBC and we see they can no longer be accepted as a news organization but instead as a propaganda arm of the DNC

  • Thomas, Snarkmaster General

    Let’s see…doesn’t Gregory work for a “news” organization that selectively edited the George Zimmerman 911 tape?

    If so, do we know for certain Gregory didn’t create the environment that made selective editing to misrepresent an American citizen okay?

    What happened to responsible journalism, you know, when journalists reported the facts. All we get now is judgment, opinion, criticism and plausible deniability.

When the only response has no fact based information, maybe you are just plain wrong and by trying to save face (David Gregory), you just look plain stupid.

Gregory is an idiot, but if you think No Reporter has ever called out those things, you must live under a rock, learn to use google . Start by googling the word bigot, and learning how it doesn’t apply here.

  • Aron

    I wonder if he asked the NBC CEO if he can prove that he didn’t create an environment at NBC where underlings thought ti was ok to edit Zimmerman’s 911 tape to make him appear racist.

  • Poppa Phil

    And this man makes big bucks being stupid!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Blake Stanton

    I’ve been thinking about going to journalism school. Where did David Gregory attend?

  • Kristopher Schindler

    I know stupid question, but did these morons not think that their outrage over Christie would not come back to haunt them due to their lack of outrage towards Obama? And Obama’s stuff is worse!

  • hattori hanza

    The MSM has soiled their shorts again.

  • theweirdo

    is everybody @nbcnews stupid?

  • foosgoddess

    You’d think CC had killed 4 Americans in Benghazi with his own two hands for the amount of press he’s getting because of an employee. Wow. Oh…wait, killing 4 Americans in Benghazi isn’t news. Move along, nothing to see here…

  • disqus_iKl87UbGah

    it isn’t a stupid question as this is how liberals act when they cover up for their leader.

  • swsmtdg

    Isn’t the burden on Gregory to prove that there is actually something other than air occupying the space between his ears?

  • disqus_zUibfyfU5r

    I wish these “National Media” dcikheads would have put this much time into the Benghazi attack and the murder of four Americans by an orchestrated terrorist group. That duochebag Clinton skates on the issue, but Christie gets grilled about a lane closure on a bridge! This is what’s wrong with America……..

    That poor Tim Russert rolls over in his grave EVERY Sunday this pretender goes on the air and soils the name of Tim and the brand he built with Meet the Press. Im not too young to remember a time when the left didn’t have EVERY “journalist” in their back pocket. A sad little excuse for a journalist.

  • nuclear conservative

    He Gregory why don’t you ask Obama to prove what he was doing during the Benghazi attack?

    • RayOne

      He was wearing, skinny leg jeans.

  • RayOne

    Gregory needs to serve his AGENDA and dance away before the inconsistency becomes insulting to the DNC unwashed. (one would hope)

  • Melissa BossyBoots Votano

    Who is he?????

  • DAVID HOFFMAN

    What the hell does it take to have the title “Journalist” behind your name? Do you just put it there and trudge forward with self induced false confidence so that no one questions you? Isn’t there some form of Journalistic Code of Ethics or code of Conduct…..In most “professions” there certainly is – maybe someone can get a copy and forward it to Mr. Gregory either at MSNBC or his White House office..

    • Richard StJohn

      Yes there is an ethics code for journalists. It came to be after “yellow journalism,” the use of sensationalism being more important than reporting facts, actually caused this nation to go to war. That was roughly 100 years ago. I doubt you can find more than a handful of journalists today who actually respect it enough to go with its guidelines. The first rule is to be factual so the entire MSM is excluded right there.

  • DeansDesk

    Good grief, who uses the word “underling”? I have never heard a single soul in any organization, business or association refer to someone with that term. @davidgregory is kind of a laughable little character isn’t he?

  • Rick Matson

    David Greggory’s “Selective Outrage” here shows his partisan blinders only see in Red Districts.

  • Nancy DeVisser

    NOBODY ASKED OBAMA THAT DID THEY?

  • juddon

    David Gregory just showed the world what a insufferable idiot he is! I hope he reads this and is embarrassed, because he should be, he is nothing more than a
    “cue card” reader, an independent thought doesn’t even enter his mind!! I am so sick of the STUPID media this country has!!

  • Delsol Dogg

    Its hilarious the Media sheep zombies feast on themselves using their own logic and are completely oblivious to it…..I say let them feast on! :)

  • lopaka864

    Um, yea. He fired someone, didn’t he? Accountability seems to be a trait “some other” politicians aren’t required to have?!?
    I don’t know if Christie made this bone head move, or if he signed off on it. He said he found out about it in the news. Sound familiar?
    But “Captain Oblivious” aka President Obama continually gets a pass? And NO ONE has been called on the carpet.
    Maybe Christie just “misspoke” or was “using talking points”?
    Or as the rest of the world says, “lied”.
    I don’t know, but I’m sure the Lame Stream Media will dig as deep as they need to find out the answer to THIS question.
    I guess the NSA electronic surveillance is working.

  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V8FvmesaxXg Revan

    And my question where was he in the past five years of Obama?

    Maybe Christie could hire Obama’s liar,Jay Carney……………it would end pretty quick.

    How many years has my friend Greg been on t.v. ……and now you notice that his questions are just a little slow witted and obvious ….really?

    My question is why it took you so long to put two plus two together…? Really?

    Years of incompetence and now…now it is observed…now..! Good grief your a bunch of broken bulbs…..IMHO

    • tedlv

      He’s pretty. Why does he need to be smart?

      Right, because this is the first time Twitchy (or any of us) has noticed. Oh wait– maybe it’s just the first time you’re aware of. Too bad there aren’t any links on this page to other coverage of him…

  • Gary Holveck

    If the general assumption is that Obama DID create such an atmosphere, perhaps Obama should need to prove otherwise, because he IS ultimately responsible for the actions of his own departments. Yet Barack Obama, aka Barry Soetoro, aka Harrison J Bounel, will say, “Aw gee, I just learned of it in the newspaper that you guys so skillfully wrote.”

    Should asked Obama those questions…

    Gregory isn’t a journalist he’s a propagandaist, Hitler and Goebbels would be proud . .

    You are asking the wrong guy this question. David, I’m tall, so I am usually protective of people in our stratosphere but you’re kind of an obvious whore. Whatever they are paying you it’s not enough.

    David Gregory IS horrifically stupid.

  • ColoMom

    Yes David Gregory and isn’t it up to you to prove you have an IQ higher than that of Donkey dung???? The good news is that just last week I read an article that NBC is trying to see how fast they can replace you!!!! NBC ( Nightly Bashing Conservatives) now that says something.

  • disqus_WfKYUkPmxv

    Liberalism is a disease. It destroys common sense and logic. David Gregory is a case in point.

  • Leigh Ann Jackson Smith

    Maybe someone could now step out of the proverbial box and actually ask our Attorney General a real question or two. why does that guy still have a job… in administration #2 ? Even Hillary had the sense to lay low for a while.

  • http://www.meetup.com/Vino-Friends Gene Siegel

    Even if he were on trial, he would be the defendant so, therefore, in the absence of admissable evidence in that area, he would have no burden of proof, the state might….So what in the world are you talking about?

  • CharacterHasNoColor

    It’s his teleprompters’ fault.

  • George Layman

    david Gregory’s logic would mean Obama’s guilty of all of his administrations crimes and Obama must prove himself innocent.

  • Andrew Harwood

    HEY DAVE ISN’T YOUR BURDEN OF PROOF THAT YOU DESERVE A PAYCHECK?

  • Cliff Chism

    David Gregory’s knowledge of law would be better suited for China or Russia, I should think. He would fit right in over there.

    • AlmostaCowboy

      Or Obama’s DOJ.

      • Cliff Chism

        He’s probably already had his application denied. He’s worth much more to them, deflecting blame away from the DOJ.

  • Larry Bangle

    This is how all the BSer’s run this face book. If you see all the comments on this subject some pertaining to the subject, a lot just BS and a lot of unjustified comments. 198 comments and not once was the question printed so, how does any body know what is being talked about?

  • Dianne Smith

    Oh nice! You mean he’s asked dummer ones before? Yeah, why doesn’t he ask Obama same question on the NSA, IRS, EPA, DOJ and on & on? Give me a break will ya.

  • angel_e

    Yet still nobody… no one… is talking about the real problems with Chris Christie aka Khris Mohammed bin Khristi; namely his ties to terrorists & Islamic Supremacists.

    1. Christie chastises those who express concerns about jihad as “a bunch
    of crazies! sick of the crazies!” even as TWO Coptic Egyptian immigrants
    are BEHEADED by a Muslim Egyptian immigrant in his own state. Hello… media?

    2. Christie nominated Sohail Mohammed to the NJ Supreme Court bench. Sohail Mohammed was not only a defense attorney for jihadii, he is of the Muslim Brotherhood. He sits (sat) on the board of one of the Brotherhood’s many front groups.

    3. During the DOJ efforts to deport terrorist, Mohammed Qatanani, Christie went to bat for the terrorist – calling him a great upstanding member of the community – and lambasting anyone who questioned him.

    4. Christie appointed Charles McKenna as head of NJ DHS in return for testifying for terrorist Qatanani during deportation hearings. Really? A terrorist-defender as Director of NJ Department of Homeland Security????

    There’s more. Much more. But you get the idea.

    • Lou Bator

      Christie’s sucking up to mohammedan terrorism and interests could and should be a major issue in any national campaign he wages, if he gets past the GW traffic scandal.

      • angel_e

        Yes, it should be. But doubtful that it will be. When the RNC was courting him prior to the 2012 election, nobody mentioned it.

        In fact, the usual Fox mouthpieces were singing his praises. I lost a lot of respect for some of my favorite (ex-favorite) Fox “news” contributors & pundits due to their fawning over Christie.

        Nobody (right or left) ever brings it up.

  • gococksri

    It’s always a good day when the GOP/Tea Party/Wingnut segment of the American electorate is given a 24-hour pass from the asylum. When we hear about it, a lot of us who are a bit more, uh, reasoned head straight to the internet to join in the fun. People who have gone off their Thorazine inevitably make for good entertainment.

    Who cares about David Gregory? Do you seriously think that progressives like David Gregory? He’s given so many wingnuts a pass when they puked up their crazy talking points on MTP that we gave up on him a long time ago. But, unlike you good folks, we’re not into cannibalism. Which means we’ll leave him to you while we go to Morton’s for a good steak (we do eat meat, but not from our own species).

    Interesting, tho, that so many of you freaks make the false equivalency between Christie’s issues and the IRS issues.

    Gregory’s question, which, admittedly, is absurd because he is asking someone to prove a negative, is still relative as a talking point to Christie’s situation. After all, we’ve got the emails that connect his office—if not him—to the decision to shut down the lanes.

    There are no emails—unless Darrell Issa has, as was the case with his Benghazi investigation debacle, re-written some—that in any way connect the IRS issues to the White House or anyone close to the president. Not one! If anything, the documents evidence a degree of unacceptable incompetence and a degree of understandable confusion among IRS agents trying to decipher the rules regarding these tax-exempt groups. And, well, that’s it. Unless, of course, you’re in possession of facts unknown to the rest of us. If so, might I suggest you send them to Issa—I understand he’s getting desperate to make some kind of case against the president about something, anything (auto theft, arson, insurance fraud; the kind of stuff with which he’s familiar).

    In other words, false equivalency.

    Please respond to this, however. We’ll have our iPhones and tablets at Morton’s and your replies will be great entertainment fodder. And, hey, don’t lighten up on the hyperbole or the conspiracy theories or the apocalyptic scenarios—the more, the better.

    LOL!!! Make sure you let us all know the next time the doctors let you out for a day.

    • DJSTARR

      It’s always a good day when somebody who apparently gives himself FAR too much credit, feels that he is making a valid point by calling out “the GOP/Tea Party/Wingnut segment of the American electorate” before ATTEMPTING to relate an intelligent thought…

      The connection is difficult to make, but Christie doesn’t have as many people covering his lies as Clinton and Obama have…

      (BTW, before you start calling me names for disagreeing with your RIDICULOUS post, I am not a member of the GOP or the TEA Party. And as I don’t believe in calling them childish names to deflect attention to scandals, I am clearly not a Democrat either. You claim that there is “nothing to connect Obama to HIS many scandals, but that e-mails sent from one of Christie’s staff PROVES his guilt? Your double-standard is nauseatingly obvious.

      • John Phelan

        sure, lets compare the things that we think may have happened verses actual material evidence that a crime has been committed…who knows, DJSTARR how many lies Bush Told…we just know the big ones about WMDs…I don’t see this president telling lies that have led to thousands of American lives, do you? IM ashamed i voted for Bush.

  • Bouncerquinn

    It’s pretty sad when a governor of a state in the USA is held to a higher standard than it’s POTUS!!

  • I_Vote

    Why don’t the little alarm bells go off in this guy’s head BEFORE he opens his mouth? Really, it’s not like he just blurted out a faux pas. He had a thought, found the keyboard, typed it out, then posted his stupidity.
    And, while this is breathtaking hypocrisy, it’s not the dumbest thing I’ve heard Gregory say, not by half.

    • AlmostaCowboy

      Leftist shills don’t have alarm bells.

  • John Phelan

    its happening within Christie’s own office, their desk is right next to his desk. ..and an actual crime has been committed. you morons can’t see a problem here? The IRS scandal has yet to show any direct lines to Obama..and the IRS is not even close to being in the same room as Obama…if you want REAL hypocrisy tune into Fox News and see all the NON-Coverage of the Christie Scandal.

    • DJSTARR

      You see a one-sided view of EVERYTHING? Or just when playing partisan political “games”? You don’t see any similarities to the MANY scandals that Obama has DENIED knowledge of, and been given a “bye” from people who are more interested in defending the dictator, than in discovering the TRUTH?

      • John Phelan

        No DJSTARR, im not blind, but there has yet to be direct proof of a scandal about Benghazi, .. yes the media is liberal for the most part..but when something is proven, then even they can’t deny it. Obama misled people with some of the facts of Obamacare and it is extremely frustrating.. and the liberal media recognized it and reported heavily on this major major lie. while you guys seem to think its all one-sided , faux news is just as guilty..like i say look at all the non-coverage at faux news right now about christie. one other thing…nbc, abc, cbs, and cnn are all out to make money; if it was a real story, you can bet benghazi would be heavily reported. i mean even 60 minutes reported on it, only to have to recant yet another made-up story about benghazi.
