How many times have major Dem elites been given a chance to tell Russert the truth? He never takes questions on his show and is often brought on NBC and MSNBC to impart his truth to us. Given a chance to finally smack down Tim Russert on MTP with an opening bigger than a super highway to drive his very nice car through, Bob Shrum demonstrates why the liberal elite think its more important to kiss the ring of the High Commissioner of the Beltway weenies rather than stick up for the awful treatment Democratic Politicians have received for decades. He may know a lot about politics and the history of the party, but watch and recoil.
This isnt about supporting Hillary or Obama because they will turn on Obama versus McCain in due time. In Schrummys mind hed rather let them walk all over Dems, assist in hiding their roll in the process, then dare tell Russert the truth. Hillary Clinton actually took an ad out against Tim Russert and he felt so bad about it, but fear not Tim, you had Schrummy to comfort you and caress you. Please make sure you have me back on the show Mr. Russert, so I can bill many more millions of dollars to another Dem candidate. You see, I have a seat at the table. Dont let Harold Ford take it from me, Tim, PLEASE!
MR. SHRUM: And if she wants to get mad, she ought to put a picture of Euclid up there, because the problem is the math doesnt add up. No matter how you do this, this race is fundamentally over. Shes not going to be the Democratic nominee for president, Barack Obama is. And we need to go into a process of healing. And I want to say, on her behalf in the last week, the, the level of the rhetoric has come down, the level of the attacks have come down. Shes making an electability argument. I think she really cares about the Democratic Party, and I hope that, in the end, whether shes mad at you or not, she can somehow or other help unite this party and move us toward victory in November.
Is there no decency?This would not stand! Helping us understand her problem, Bob Shrum rushed in to succor his friendto pander, kiss, smooch, fuss and fawn.
