John Sununu and Chris Christie are the two crassest, rudest, coarsest spokespeople imaginable.
Sununu: “Soledad – stop this. All you’re doing is mimicking the stuff that comes out of the White House and gets repeated on the Democratic blog boards out there….”
O’Brien: I’m telling you what FactCheck.com tells you. I’m telling you what the CBO tells you. I’m telling you what CNN’s independent analysis does.”
Sununu: “I got the CBO report right here.”
O’Brien: And I’m telling you what it says. I’ve read it several times.”
Sununu: Put an Obama bumper sticker on your forehead when you do this.”
O’Brien: You know. Let me tell you something. There is independent analysis that details what this about and repeating a number –
Sununu: No there isn’t.
O’Brien: Yes there is.
Sununu: No, there’s Democratic analysis.
O’Brien: Sir, let me finish. There’s independent analysis. FactCheck.com, the CBO and CNN has also done its own independent analysis and name calling to me and somehow acting as if by you repeating a number of $716 billion that you can make that stick when that figure is being stolen from Medicare – that’s not true….”
Sununu: It’s says it’s a reduction in services and a reduction in support for Medicare advantage.
O’Brien: A reduction in the expected rate of growth.”
And on and on they went.
