Gov. Steve Beshear (D-KY)
Gov. Jon Kasich (R-OH)
Pat Geraghty - CEO Florida Blue
Rep. Steve King (R-NY)
Gregory: OMG the Obamacare
website is slow – can it survive??
Gregory: Governor Kasich how do you
answer the charge that Obama has
said there is no excuse for the slow website?
Kasich: Obamacare crushed small
businesses, costs jobs and drives up costs
Gregory: that's fine but I want to you
to bash Obama about the website
Kasich: Obama is also tapping our phones
Gregory: um what?
Gregory: look we need to figure out
why we're polarized and also
is Obama spying on your grandma
Gregory: How disappointed are you??
Beshear: Obamacare is incredibly
popular in my state
Gregory: but mostly Medicaid and
not the young and the restless
Beshear: Obamacare is working in Kentucky!
Gregory: how frustrated are you at Obama?!
Beshear: calm down Fluffy
Gregory: no no no – Obama
is a bad bad man!
Beshear: I'm more disappointed in the
media for their terrible reporting
Gregory: I'm going to talk to Jon Kasich now
Kasich: we solved health care costs
in Ohio which Obamacare doesn't do
Gregory: but how do answer the
charge that you are very compassionate?
Kasich: look they're offering free
money and we took it
Kasich: also drug addiction and mental
illness affect white people too you know
Gregory: good point
Gregory: Governor Beshear how do
you answer the charge that Kasich
is right about everything?
Beshear: he's not
Gregory: shouldn't someone be fired?
Beshear: besides you?
Gregory: we're out of time
[ break ]
Gregory: Obama said you would get to
keep your health plan so why are you
cutting people off their health care plan
Geraghty: look you're getting
better health insurance for less money
Gregory: you may pay less in
the end but it's still bad
Geraghty: that makes no sense
Gregory: but I may pay more
when I like my bad plan
Geraghty: are you an idiot
Gregory: will people pay more?
Geraghty: most will pay less
Gregory: will no one bash
this President for me?!
Gregory: sir are you scamming young
healthy people who probably don't
need health insurance until they need it
Gregory: but young people will not
get on a slow website – they can't
Gregory: did you warn the white House
that the website could be slow?
Geraghty: of course we did dumbass
Geraghty: have you ever been to
the Meet The Press website – its sucks
[ break ]
Mitchell: The White House is facing outrage
over reports that Obama has been spying
on Germany for more than a decade
and on millions of Frenchman
Carney: that was years ago
Jon Stewart: OMG Obama is covering
up for George Bush!
Mitchell: the bastion of freedom Saudi Arabia
protested the U.S. failure to bomb Syria
Gregory: oh noe!
Mitchell: also that weak stupid Obama
is too easily charmed by those wily Persians!
Gregory: thanks Andrea
[ break ]
Gregory: the spying Obama limited
is now out of control!
King: oh shut up David
Gregory: but the spying!
King: 9/11 was plotted in Hamburg Germany!
Gregory: but Obama bugged
Angela Merkel's phone in 2002!
King: we're not doing this for the
fun of it Fluffy – we're trying to save lives
Gregory: but Snowden!
King: Obama should defend the NSA
– he's the commander in chief
Gregory: isn't it time to reign in the
President's power now that Obama
has been reelected?
King: fuck off Gregrory
King: hey we bombed Dresden before
and we can do it again
Gregory: strong words
King: also Rand Paul needs to shut the fuck up
– no one wants to kill him in a Starbucks
Gregory: isn't Obama empowering Iran?
King: look I hate those evil Saudis but
for Obama to find a successful
peaceful resolution in Syria is indefensible
Gregory: that is so true
King: Obama went on a apology tour
and left our best friends Saudi Arabia
and Israel out to dry
Gregory: that is so sad
King: not bombing Syria was a disaster
Gregory: Obama would say it was
successful but we're gout of time
[ break ]
Gregory: Todd talk politics to me
Todd: Democrats are popular but
the House is gerrymandered
Todd: the Dems only need 17 seats
– it's possible
Gregory: but Obamacare will change
everything – Democrats are doomed!
[ break ]
Gregory: OMG the Obamacare
website was botched!
Granholm: Obama is going to
supervise writing code if he has to
Granholm: At least Kasich was smart
enough to take free money
Santorum: but that would expand
the role of government
Granholm: but this is important Fluffy
Gregory: that's dull – let's talk about
how Obama botched this
Castellanos: Government cannot
adapt to modern society
Gregory: that's a broad statement
Castellanos: also Social Security is a
Ponzi scheme which should be canceled
Tanden: the Medicare expansion was
a failure and Rick Santorum defended it
Santoum: that's different – Obama
had 30 years to prepare for this
Tanden: you're an idiot
Gregory: clearly this has failed but
does this prove everything sucks?
Castellanos: yes it proves all humans
fail ergo we should dismantle
the federal government
Granholm: maybe the Republican states
should have set up their own exchanges
Gregory: the Maryland AG didn't shut down
a party where high school we're drinking beer
– and I'm not asking as a fake journalist
I'm asking as a parent
Castellanos: hey at least he was
the only parent there
Gregory: but he's also the Attorney General
Castellanos: but he was there as a parent
Santorum: my kids never do anything wrong –
and I would have gone to the parents and
said “you're undermining the morals of my children”
Tanden: I would never sanction a beach party
– but he should not have hosted a party
Gregory: he didn't host the party he
just stopped by to drink with the teens
Granholm: he should never have been
seen at such a party
Tanden: he was there to get his kid
Granholm: even so
Gregory: but he's the AG – you're either
a lawbreaker or a bystander!
Santorum: it takes a nosy busybody
village to raise a child!
Gregory: OMG Hillary Clinton is
running for President!
Tanden: it's crazy how Meet The Press
is obsessed with the 2016 race
Gregory: just talk about Hillary Neera
Tanden: the Democrats are unified
and the GOP are cracking up
Gregory: Rick do you love Ted Cruz?
Santorum: he's a flash in the pan
Gregory: do tell Ricky
Santorum: he's a loser who hurt the party
Castellanos: he's a train wreck
Gregory: this is a one-year anniversary of
Hurricane Sandy which hit Brian Williams
harder than most people
Williams: I have a mansion on the
Jersey Shore and this was our Katrina
Williams: people fear the water now
Gregory: this is all about you
Williams: I rode out Katrina in Superdome
but this hit my hometown
Gregory: where's the scandal?
Williams: some people are coming back
but I want to know who is not coming
back and the permanent effects
Gregory: and that's another
