    Mike Huckabee might be down in the polls, but he's still up to throwing a good political punch. On this evening's MTP Daily, Chuck Todd suggested, by way of advocating the admission of Syrian refugees, that the US is better than Europe at "assimilation." Retorted Huckabee, speaking of one of the Boston bombers, "he really assimilated, until he blew up the Boston Marathon with a pressure cooker." Ouch! View the video here.

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press,” the deputy national security adviser for strategic communication for President Barack Obama Ben Rhodes said the president is not worried about America taking Syrian refugees despite reports that at least one man linked to the Paris attacks registered as refugee in Greece. Host Chuck Todd said, “If anything, ISIS looks like they’re more ambitious than ever.” Rhodes replied, “Well clearly, Chuck, they’ll have to be an intensification of our efforts, to look at what has worked in the application of the strategy and what hasn’t. What we see works, getting equipment arms directly to...

    Speaks slowly so Chuck Todd can understand It’s not easy making a worthwhile point when you go on Meet the Press, because you have to answer questions from Chuck Todd, who never asks you about anything worthwhile. But Speaker Paul Ryan did a pretty good job regardless in his appearance yesterday. Conservatives opposed to Ryan because immigration is their number one issue and they think Ryan is a pro-amnesty sellout will be pleased to know - I think, you never know with them - that Ryan vowed there will be no comprehensive immigration reform taken up by the House as...

    Meet The Press host Chuck Todd called out ranking Benghazi Select Committee member Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) and other Democrats Sunday for using so much of their time this week with Hillary Clinton to shield her rather than ask real questions about Clintons handling of the terrorist attack.Less than 25 percent of the Democrats questions, according to the NBC shows calculations, were actually challenging, Todd said. The hearing was referred to as partisan by many mainstream media outlets, but they chose to give it that label because of the Republicans tough questioning of Clinton, not Democrats consistently bashing the proceedings...

In an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Cruz said Republican leaders, especially in the Senate, are "making it easier for Barack Obama and [Senate Minority Leader] Harry Reid to add trillions in debt." "The truth of the matter is Republican leadership are the most effective Democrat leaders we've ever seen. They've passed more Democratic priorities than Harry Reid ever could," Cruz said.

That it was political spin.” “The reality is we live in an incredibly dangerous world and sadly the failures of the Obama/Clinton foreign policy have made the dangers greater,” Cruz claimed.Todd later asked Cruz, “If you become President though, you’re gonna keep this policy in place of keeping those troops there...

    I attended a Donald Trump rally yesterday, October 3, in Franklin Tennessee. Ive never seen attendance like it. I arrived an hour early and the line snaked around the building then back on itself around the building again and the people kept coming and coming. They were mostly average working people, I estimate about a third were under 30. All were heartened by the crowd itself. Everyone I spoke to expressed renewed hope for America in this candidate. Eventually, the organizers stopped letting people in and we were all stranded out in the rain. The couple behind me had...

    Here's an exchange from Bernie Sanders's appearance on "Meet the Press" on Sunday: CHUCK TODD: Are you a capitalist? @BernieSanders: No. I'm a Democratic Socialist. And, in those five words, Sanders showed why no matter how much energy there is for him on the liberal left he isn't getting elected president. Why? Because Democrat or Republican (or independent), capitalism remains a pretty popular concept especially when compared to socialism. A 2011 Pew Research Center survey showed that 50 percent of people had a favorable view of capitalism, while 40 percent had an unfavorable one. Of socialism, just...

    In unmistakable ways over the last two weeks, whether he has intended to or not, Donald J. Trump has started to articulate a way out of the presidential race: a verbal parachute that makes clear he has contemplated the factors that would cause him to end his bid. It is a prospect that many in the political establishment have privately predicted as the actual voting grows closer. In three separate television interviews, Mr. Trump, who has made his standing in the polls a central facet of his campaign message, spoke about what would prompt him to quit a race in...

    In a massive coincidence, every single Hillary Clinton staffer and surrogate who watched the Democratic presidential candidates Meet the Press interview had the exact same thoughts, sometimes using identical language.... Now at first, it may appear that these responses were all coordinated in some fashion. However, it would be against the law for campaign officials to coordinate with a pro-Clinton Super PAC director like Brad Woodhouse. So clearly its a coincidence that his tweet was identical to Clinton staffer Karen Finneys.

Todd was alluding to the moment in the interview in which Hillary agreed with his characterization of a "drip, drip, drip" aspect to the scandal. When Todd asked whether she could "reassure Democrats that there's nothing else here," Hillary's answer was a very un-reassuring "there's only so much I can...

Capping off a stretch of several strong weeks for the NBC show, Chuck Todd's interviews with the Republican presidential candidate (his only appearance on the Sunday shows) and Sen.

In a 37-minute conversation on "Meet The Press," Todd pushed Trump on a wide range of issues with which the real-estate magnate would presumably be confronted if he won the presidency in 2016. It forced Trump to be on the defensive on everything from his college record, to outsourcing, to the US role in NATO.

By strange coincidence, yesterday also marked the notable event when Chuck Todd on Meet The Press allowed a couple of panelists to question a guest, Bill Daley. This was actually nothing new because in its original format, which has been forgotten in recent years, Meet The Press meant exactly that...meet the press, not just meetthe interview hogging host....

    Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina apparently has learned something about registering website domain names. Shortly after the former Hewlett-Packard chief executive announced her campaign last week, she found out that a cybersquatter had bought the rights to carlyfiorina.org and was using it to criticize her record. Chuck Todd of NBC News brought up the issue while interviewing Fiorina on "Meet the Press" and showed the website, which features row after row of frowny-face emoticons representing 30,000 people laid off during her Hewlett-Packard tenure from 1999 to 2005.

    Carly Fiorina is clearly not worried about the mocking from the media over fake web domains. After she appeared on NBCs Meet the Press this morning, she let Chuck Todd know he has a domain of his own out there.

    During an appearance on Morning Joe Wednesday, Meet The Press moderator Chuck Todd said that it boggles the mind that the Clinton Foundation continues to take foreign donations. Todds remarks come after such donations from Hillary Clintons time as secretary of state have come under increased scrutiny amid the launch of her 2016 presidential campaign. Well, I mean, look, to me, though, thats the part of this that makes it more damning on the Clintons, Todd told hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski, both of whom argued the onus is on the White House in this situation. This is where...

    SASSY Carly Fiorina Has a Unique Way of Dealing with Chuck Todd. The link takes you to the DC home page where the piece is proceeded by the super title "SASSY" while the article itself doesn't include that reference. I just find it interesting choice of words. Sassy? Has Ted Cruz been Sassy? I bet bitchy and hysterical will be used too at some point. I know it was meant lovingly but others might not see that way.

    The Vanity FairBloomberg cocktail reception that follows the White House Correspondents Dinner, held at the franco-swank residence of the French ambassador, is the kind of party where Katie Couric can kick off her shoes and spend much of the party in bare feet. Its the kind of party where Charlie Rose and Ashley Judd stand by one of several bars and engage in a lot of intense close-talking. Its the kind of party where one waits in line to use the loo, just as one has done at every normal, far less glitzy house party since the 1990s. But then...

    Have you ever seen the wide-eyed happy look on a kid after he was given one of the Hess toy trucks sold at gas stations? Well, that pretty much describes the attitude of Meet The Press hostChuck Todd in reaction to Hillary Clinton's"Scooby Doo" van. Chuck tweeted in ecstasy over supposed spontaneity of such an "original" idea, completely forgetting the brutal reality as we shall see. As a result, poor Chuck was widely mocked in reaction.Before we go to the mocking, let us first look at Chuck Todd's happy tweet over the Scooby Doo van. An original idea...except for the...

    On Sunday, in anticipation of Sen. Ted Cruzs (R-TX) announcement that he intends to run for president, California governor Jerry Brown (D), declared to NBCs Meet the Press Cruz was absolutely unfit to be running for office. Why? Because of Cruzs stance on climate changesome of which Cruz laid out on late night TV last week. But comparing Cruzs comments on Late Night with Seth Meyers and Browns remarks on Meet the Press, it is pretty clear that it is Gov. Brown who needs to spend more time familiarizing himself with the scientific literature on climate change and especially its...

    The war of words over climate change is getting blisteringly hot between Gov. Jerry Brown and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, with the Republican presidential candidate blithely dismissing the Democratic governor as one of those global warming alarmists who relies on ridicule and insult. A Brown campaign strategist shot back Monday that the factually irrational Cruz is apparently now determined to stand out from a pack of troglodytes in the GOP race for the White House. The public slap down and the dis of Brown came as Cruz formally announced his run for the White House at Liberty University...

    On NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday, host Chuck Todd suggested it's possible Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's controversial speech to Congress has backfired, though it doesn't take place until Tuesday. "You know, I'm wondering if Prime Minister Netanyahu defeated himself here a little bit," Todd said. "Because the more he attacks the [Obama] administration on the deal, the more the administration wants to dig in." Netanyahu's speech, made via an invitation by Republican House Speaker John Boehner without consulting the White House, is expected to be a criticism of White House negotiations with Iran over Tehran's nuclear development program. Netanyahu...
