Why does Cheney fear Russert?

    Will Cheney dare to respond to Russerts invitation to "Meet The Press"? I suspect not. There is an open invitation to show up on any Sunday until the election. This is the show that Kennedy once called "the fifty-first state".

    Edwards isn't afraid to show up; why is Cheney?.

    After the thrashing Russert gave Edwards, it's no surprise Cheney wouldn't want to come on the show.

    And plus, how many Sundays do you think Cheney has off between now and the election? His regular job of running the country is hard enough, but now he's got to go out on the campaign trail too, talk about a headache, who knows what Georgie might choke on while Cheney's not spoon-feeding him baby food.

    Hmm, I've heard of Tim Russert but haven't really had the inclination to watch his show. He sounds interesting. I'll check him out one of these days.

    Like I said, Cheney is afraid of Russert. Edwards isn't.

    This is not just some talk show; it is a grand tradition in politics. Cheney knows that if he shows his face he's doomed. You're right; Russert would rip him apart, one piece at a time. ...but Edwards showed up...hmmm.

    Russert is the man. Your average interviewer would say something like "You previously said x, now you say y, and some would say that might constitute a change of position based on political opportunism, your response to those criticisms?" and when the dick just gives some crappy answer, they let them go. Not Russert, he keeps on pressing and pressing the issues until the slimey bastards are forced to give an answer or look like such stupid weasles for trying to evade the question that you get a fair view of them.

    He's my favorite :biggrin:

    About Meet the Press

    It is at least one of the best - probably the best in my opinion - places to see politicians face real questions, and then see them held accountable for providing real answers.
    To fear Tim Russert is to fear telling the truth.
