On this weeks broadcast of CBSs Face the Nation, former secretary of defense Robert Gates said he was in agreement with President Donald Trumps disruptive approach.
Partial transcript as follows:
DICKERSON: Whats your sense overall of President Trump as an unpredictable leader?
GATES: Broadly philosophically, Im in agreement with his disruptive approach. So in government, Im a strong believer in the need for reform of government agencies and departments. They have gotten fat and sloppy and theyre not user-friendly. They are inefficient. They cost too much. I also think on the foreign policy side that there is a need for disruption. Weve had three administrations follow a pretty consistent policy toward North Korea, and it really hasnt gotten us anywhere.

Not the answer Dickerson was looking for. We will not see Gates on Deface the Nation again...
You can bet Gates won't be invited back on CBS and his quotes won't see the light if day. Way wrong answer for the Leftist narrative!
Odd but welcome !
In some ways, Gates seems like the ultimate foreign policy DC swamp creature, a Uniparty man who works for both sides...
but in this case he is honest enough to say that what was being done previously was not working.
Doing the happy dance!!!
“Weve had three administrations follow a pretty consistent policy toward North Korea, and it really hasnt gotten us anywhere.”
Excellent and I also predict that there will be peace in the middle east before the end of his first term.
Disruptive approach bump for later...
Broadly philosophically, Im in agreement with his disruptive approach.
Its too bad that many Republicans in congress don’t agree with him and are doing everything possible to undermine Trump’s efforts to drain the swamp.
The Republicans are so stupid and corrupt they don’t see that if they keep this up nobody will ever vote for them again.
Building an entire government from the bottom up is arduous. Trump is doing just that. It will take a bit more than a few months to achieve. Already we are seeing a tsunami effect on the nation. In a year there will be substantial changes.
“The Republicans are so stupid and corrupt they dont see that if they keep this up nobody will ever vote for them again.”
They are getting their graft while the sun shines on them, and shouting “devil takes the hindermost.”
AKA - handing out “offensive” pink slips instead coddling the L.I.F.E.Rs by handing out trophy’s for “trying”.
Leading questions by liberal haters is the norm... DICKERSON has a creepy feel ...
“Gates seems like the ultimate foreign policy DC swamp creature, a Uniparty man who works for both sides...”
Perhaps so. Gates does stand out as working both sides of the street. On the other hand, he just may be doing his best to faithfully serve our country. A soldier in a pinstripe suit as it were. My nickels sez he’s a Good Troop.
My nickels sez hes a closet Gay Troop.
