ICYMI: Weinberg on MTP, Wiz on This Week & BWC on UP with Steve Kornacki (Videos)

We’ve already posted video from Steve Kornacki’s Sunday show, his very strange Q & A with Belmar’s mayor (see Steve Kornacki asks Matt Doherty a direct question. Does he answer it?). I want to post 3 more for you, in case you missed them. Loretta on MTP was especially good.  Below the fold, John Wisniewski on This Week and Bonnie Watson Coleman doesn’t back down on Kornacki.

Loretta Weinberg on Meet the Press (Chuck Todd subbing for David Gregory): Weinberg gives the specifics of what’s wrong with Mastro’s “report”. By contrast Rudy Giuliani, also guesting, gets only a nod for admitting Christie’s self-exoneration isn’t conclusive. Then he goes on to defend it extensively. He should be ashamed of himself. Maybe he feels obligated to Christie. But hell. He’s a former federal prosecutor. He knows what a real investigation is supposed to look like. Here’s Weinberg:

On the jump page, the Wisniewski & BWC videos.

Bramnick: Giving Second Chances a Progressive Value

Bramnick’s accidentally-made point that forgiveness is not a conservative value isn’t even what I got out of what he said. To me, Bramnick appears to suggest Christie did in fact do something wrong, requiring forgiveness, which Christie himself has denied. Promoted by Rosi

Last night Bonnie Watson Coleman gave the New Jersey Christie Party (Democrats and Republicans welcome as long as you swear fealty to Governor Chris Christie) a little cover on Bridgegate by suggesting the Governor should consider resigning.

Her mild statement, said by many others over time (including by NJ residents at publicly funded “town hall” meetings), is amplified by Watson Coleman’s position as a Bridgegate legislative investigation committee member and a candidate for the open Congressional seat in CD12.

But even when given an opportunity like this the GOP enjoys making little mistakes.  Here’s part of Assemblyman and formerly top-mentioned US Senate candidate Jon Bramnick’s admission that forgiveness is a progressive value:

“The most surprising part of Assemblywoman Watson Coleman’s statement is that her record has been the most progressive when it comes to giving people who make mistakes a second chance,” he said.

See, progressive means giving people second chances.  Which means that the opposite is true for conservatives, unless of course it’s for their own.

Sometimes they tell the truth about themselves without even meaning to.
