Sunday Talks: OMB Director Mick Mulvaney…

The insufferable DC Swamp media-guards were in full Swamp protection mode today.  Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Director Mick Mulvaney appeared on NBC (Chuck Todd) and CBS News (John Dickerson) to discuss the first Trump budget proposal.

Chuck Toad (Meet the Pus) was his insufferable, groaning, grunting, condescending and teeth gnashing self.  Weird how Toad is a budget hawk all of a sudden:


John Dickerson spent the first 5 minutes of a 6.5 minute interview with the budget director talking about issues unrelated to the budget:

      My husband and I went out for brunch after church this morning. And the place we were at had Chuckie boy on. The first thing that popped into my head was a scene from one of Joe Dan’s videos. It showed Chuckie going all splodey head after Trump won. Then I said to my husband, ohhh it’s one of the LIARS this morning. Then turned my back, sat down and up in my viewing space was another LIAR Georgie Will. I almost asked for a refund.

      I like to call him “upchuck, Todd” – which is what I want to do every time I see or listen to him, which is rare and usually a mistake on my part…..what an insufferable weasel that guy is. He actually kind of looks like a weasel, now that I think of it….

        Yup, although I’ve thought of “ferret face” more than weasel for a description of him…and those shifty eyes – give the impression of untruth and deception and untrustworthyness. Along with his whineyness and his confrontive attack mode of questioning, these make him unwatchable, IMO.

    An old friend was a superior pool player and student of human nature. When we went out and his rent was due he’d play pool to make his rent money. Part of how that works is the other guy wins the first few games. If the guy was a complete tool about it by the end of the night he would end up paying my friends rent and buying all the drinks and never know what happened. If, however, the guy was cool and handled beating my friend with class then he’d maybe lose a game or two for the cost of a beer.

    When you’re that much smarter and that much better prepared than your opponent you can let him bray and strut like an icehole all he wants he’s still a loser.

  8. Mick Mulvaney left both of them in the dust!

    The fact is they just don’t understand business nor economics nor the Middle Class and therefore don’t know how or what to ask that won’t be answered in a way that makes their ignorance apparent.

    Like taking candy from a baby eh?

    Dickerson asking about the Middle Class as though they are some kind of strange foreign group of people was just one example.

    Both men utterly failed in their attempt to trap Mulvaney. He knows his stuff. And they DON’T.

    These “interviews” are not about getting news (information) to the viewer; they are about advancing the agenda of the left (which is also the agenda of the “reporter”). They are doing propaganda.

    These Sunday morning shows are open interrogation rather that interviews. Perhaps the administration should find some alternate news organizations to do interviews with that could be live streamed over the internet. After all, the mainstream media is the opposition party remember.

    Where was Todd when Obama run our defecets up and up.
    Would Todd rather have that SS get cut..? Cutting the budged is never fun even cutting it at home. One has to cut someplace. Most Meals on Wheels do not come from Federal Government.

    I used to help deliver the meals and most people were not hurting and some had a care giver 4 days a weak. Sometimes family was next door or down the street. Meals were convinient for some people. Of douse there are some people who need it and maybe it needs to get back to need not convenience..?

      This morning is a interesting conversation if no one saw it with Ted Cruz.
      Beginning at 5:00 he speaks about the health insurance and how phase 3 can be put together with 1 and go through the Senate. He is smart when it comes to law.


      • parteagirl says:

        Cruz is arguing that Bucket 3 can be moved into Bucket 1 because the items in bucket 3 affect the budget and therefore can be added by reconciliation? I’m not sure that can be done. It sounds like a disagreement with Trump/Price over the process- at least I hope that’s all it is.

          I can shake the feeling that something else is going on here. Trump is already moving his focus to tax cuts- saying they make be addressed late this spring. That’s much earlier than the sometime before-August-recess timeline mentioned earlier. If Trump is now pivoting to tax cuts, it sounds like he feels the Obamacare repeal/replace box has a check mark beside it.

          So what’s Ted doing out there? Is he helping to throw the media’s scent off the trail that Republicans have already come together to save the day, as Trump tweeted? Trump’s confidence on Friday has me hoping that something like this is up his sleeve.

      Plus, a lot of people that receive meals on wheels could easily pay for them. Why is it always free? I’m definitely for providing it free for elders and invalids that are poor, but many seniors that benefit from it are just old, and not poor at all.

        Twenty years ago my grandfather would get the meals because he was old. He maybe liked one or two dinners and would take the rest to a guy in town who was in way worse shape than him (my grandfather owned his home and had money in the bank).

          Meals on Wheels are scarcely anything to brag about. They are not lavish at all in some cases are practically the only meal these people get.

          I used to deliver them. Sometimes I was the only conversation they had other than the occasional junk phone calls.

          I recall a comment from the Frazer show when they were looking for a retirement home for Martin. The ad said “We care for your parents so you don’t have to.” It speaks the truth.

          Is it really all that expensive to provide this service?


          • judyw says:

            I could be wrong but it is my understanding that most of the delivery is done by volunteers and you likely volunteered your time and transportation. The part of this program that is the most value is exactly what you said…the conversation…knowing someone is going to come in today.

            “Is it really all that expensive…” is the way we have been looking at these services for way too long and has kept us from looking at the value provided. I love looking from the perspective of “Is this a good use of my tax $”

            No one will likely see any difference in Meals on Wheels….it was the best “wheel” people who oppose everything being done could grab onto to ramp up division….

            Mick Mulvaney, the Office of Management and Budget director, said that the funding source the administration seeks to eliminate — the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s community development block grants — accounts for just 3 percent of Meals on Wheels’ overall funding.

            So it looks to be instructive to compare the 3% overall funding cut to households using a $100 weekly budget for food. Is there one who could say they could not cut that back to $97? Or am I missing something?

    And when they dare to even try to imply Trump is spending too much money on “golfing,” when they completely ignore the fact President Trump takes no salary AND that Trump ownes Mar-a-Lago and thus is paying for his time off there HIMSELF!

    My 2 cents … again:

    Politicians: always try to please everybody for votes. But we are all familiar with the axiom: trying to please everybody is a sure formula for failure.

    Presstitutes: go easy on their favorites but dump trash on their opponents. What else is new?

    Successful business-people: are those who have learned and mastered the age-old rule: produce the best while spending less than you take in, and change as you go, when needed, correcting the course for maximal improvement.

    On November 2016 the electorate, as a whole, made a wise decision in choosing someone from the third group to make the government decisions for the next four years, as is becoming increasingly apparent day after day.

    In the meantime, it is not realistic to expect politicians and presstitutes to change their ways because, if they could, they would have done so already. The mere fact that they cannot change their attitude or approach is solid evidence of that. For politicians it is convenient to pretend that reducing taxes will increase deficits (despite the contrary having been proven by presidents Kennedy and Reagan). Presstitutes exercise their forked tongues saying “cutting the budget will hurt people” and “he won’t be able to cut the deficit by increasing components of the budget”. They have no clue (and no cure).

  23. vinchenzer says:

    The only way to balance the budget and to pare down the debt is by cutting nonsense programs like PBS and their outrageous salaries (one guy gets close to a million dollars a year at PBS), lowering taxes and increasing tax revenues by economic expansion. If all I had to pay was 15% I wouldn’t complain coupled to the fact that the government wasn’t wasting my money like Obama did.

    In addition the one idiot complained about Trump’s Mar Lago trips; the President goes there because he is can’t trust the WH not being bugged and also there is no protection. There have been 3 incidents of a breach so far. The MSM is just a ridiculous bunch of dweebs. They never brought up Obama’s wasteful vacations and golf outings.


    • Gary says:

      PBS is already paring down the need for Government subsidy. They have been doing it for years. Anything that gets eliminated now will scarcely be noticed by the budget. With this last cut, they will no longer have restraints in being nice to the people in charge…..


      • vinchenzer says:

        Really? Hmmm.

        “The salaries he finds so egregious? PBS President Paula Kerger earned $632,233, NPR former President Kevin Klose $1.2 million, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting CEO Patricia de Stacy Harrison earned $298,884, plus $70,630 in additional compensation.Mar 4, 2011”


        • Gary says:

          ““The salaries he finds so egregious?”
          How does t his apply to the removal of government subsidies? As the post says, they are already making themselves independent of the government funding a dependency that controlled their voice. Once removed, they will be speaking out about a lot of things and no longer having to be restrained under the threat of losing funding.

          Be careful what you ask for….

    Love how news company employee states that mulvaney didn’t have a change to vote on a budget very much while in Congress. Why was that? Because Obama didn’t fulfill his responsibilities! and now Todd is pushing for a date for a balanced budget and pushing for when Trump will reduce the debt? Obama just doubled it and I don’t remember any press hounding his administration about that!

    These people are disgusting. When the Budget director is on and your first question is about the Healthcare Bill, you are NOT doing your job.

    Fortunately, Mulvaney is an excellent speaker on any subject. Dickerson is probably kicking himself that he didn’t know that.

    Mulvaney does something that most Republicans seem to be unable to do: He bread things down to a simple one-liner (coal miners paying for…..) that even a Democratic voter can understand.

    Mulvaney does an excellent job with these adversarial interviews. And most of the questions have nothing to do with the budget. The interviewers only move on when Mulvaney scores an indisputable point on them.

    Overall these interviews with Cabinet members are a great move. The conflict level is far reduced from interviews with anyone speaking for the President, which is a benefit for people who are exhausted from the never ending campaign season. The Cabinet members look like calm reasonable people, which can only help calm some of the alarmed American public who voted for Hillary. Boring is better for them than inflammatory.

    Interestingly, It looks like the President is letting all these people – Cabinet members, Congressmen, even Paul Ryan, go forward and be the face of this government, while he maneuvers quietly and unseen in the rear. He has chosen smart people to work in his Administration and that shows through in every interview. None of his Cabinet members seem to speak that sleazy double talk we are used to. Some of us may not like what we are hearing, but at least we are being given information instead of self-congratulatory stupidity.


  30. Angry Dumbo says:

    So true about Toad morphing into a budget hawk. These guys never had a budget under Obama and never cared. The media forgets that despite the 24 hour news cycle what politicians said yesterday lives on the internet. And Joe Public can find it. Changing the narrative does not change the facts. Viva la Breitbart!
