In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Chuck Todd: America is in a “Dark Period”

And who do you think is responsible for the darkness? Like, not Obama or Pelosi.

Of course, his Meet the Press colleagues mostly agreed, including Helene Cooper, a New York Times reporter who said we prioritized guns over kids. She and Todd are supposed to be unbiased.

According to Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner:

This week’s Liberal Media Scream features Meet the Press host Chuck Todd in a post-impeachment funk, talking on his NBC show about America being “in what feels like a more dark period.”

On his show, he noted a lack of “moral leadership” from politicians in the age of President Trump before giving his ominous view.

Todd revealed that before the program that the panel had voted “social ills” as the No. 1 story of the past decade, specifically gun killings at schools and the opioid crisis. After New York Times reporter Helene Cooper rued that in the wake of the Obama-era Sandy Hook, New Jersey, school shootings, “We were willing to prioritize our gun rights over protecting children in elementary schools,” Todd said, “It’s a reminder of how little Americans turn to politicians anymore for moral leadership because our politicians have totally failed on these two crises.”

Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin said that “losing trust in government means losing trust in our collective ability to do something,” but, she added: “There were positive things about these ‘10s, there was activism. … More women ran and won than ever before, a lot more people interested in politics. There’s an arc to this decade. You have to see the positives.”

  1. Chuck Todd is just spewing the usual “we’re all doomed” narrative the anti-Trumpers give us every day. He’s a well trained political parrot. No serious, informed citizen pays any attention to him.

  2. Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin said that “losing trust in government means losing trust in our collective ability to do something,” ….
    She is so right. We don’t trust our government at any level to take care of anything.
    The overall attitude of these whiners is just confusing to anyone listening. They are highly paid, have great futures ahead, and yet, they are not happy or content with life in the USA today.
    May we suggest they immigrate to that country where all they’re ideas of a happy, productive life are possible?

  3. All you need to know is the Left wanting to infringe on rights specified in the constitution. All they ever do is claim to help the children, while at the same time trying to tell ppl abortion is in the constitution. Nuts they are.

  4. Is it my imagination, or is Pelosi doing the following:

    1. Abusing her powers by seeking a quid pro quo: holding up the impeachment articles for trial conditions

    2. Obstruction of Congress by holding up the impeachment articles preventing the Senate from conducting a trial
