NBC's list of "most telling" Obama quotes missing a few
1/10/2017 9:41:55 PM  Ed Morrissey
0 Comments
Perhaps the urge to offer substance-free hosannas to a departing president would be understandable coming from his ideological allies, but … it’s not a good look from mainstream media outlets. NBC News’ Politics reporter Adam Howard

Quite a bombshell from Jake Tapper and CNN. It suuuure is interesting that this is dropping the night before Trump’s big press conference, just in time for the press to tear him to shreds over it face-to-face. Mike Pence is going to make a great

As I noted Friday, the GOP launched an aggressive schedule for confirmation hearings, probably in the hope that it would limit Democrats’ ability to push back on each and every nominee. However it seems that schedule was too aggressive as some of
