.. Bob Schieffer retired the other day [a Sunday] after nearly 60 years in journalism . Also , he moderated his last broadcast after 24 years at ” deface the Nation . ”

.. unlike many of the biased and bigoted practicioners of the snooze at CBS , Schieffer was a real pro ‘ s pro . You could never really tell what his philosophical leanings throughout his career . Which is the way it should be ..

.. CBS correspondent Lara Logan appeared on deface the Nation on Sunday . While that may not matter much , what she said spoke volumes , and it is scary …

.. [link] to the interview segment ..

.. she pointed out that ISIS [the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria] has a lot of heavy stuff [APCs , Stryker vehicles , etc] , and has some background in how to use them . Whoever has to go after them and deal with them is not going to have an easy time of it , not one gosh darned bit at all …

Anyone want to Watch Bob Schieffer of CBS make DannyBoyPfeiffer look like an Idiot

.. believe you me , it is not that hard .

.. Pfeiffer is the ObamaCrap WhiteHouse spokesflack – du – jour . He made the full ” Ginsberg , ” appearing on all five major network Sunday shows . You figure he might have drilled , or practiced for the experience . Or , better yet , had experience before he got his job . OOOOOhhhhh , NNNNNoooo .

.. Schieffer has pretty much had it with this crowd . At least the Clintonoids knew what they were saying , as well as what they were doing , and why . The ObamaCraps are nowhere near as good at it , and their message machine is way beyond second – rate . They should be better at this , but they are not .

Bob Schieffer, chief Washington correspondent ...

DAN PFEIFFER, SENIOR WHITE HOUSE ADVISOR: The point that our Chief of Staff is making is that this is the Republican playbook here which is try, when they don’t have a positive agenda, try to drag Washington into a swamp of partisan fishing expeditions, trumped up hearings and false allegations. We’re not going to let that distract us and the President from actually doing the people’s work and fighting for the middle class.

BOB SCHIEFFER, HOST: You know, I don’t want to compare this in any way to Watergate. I do not think this is Watergate by any stretch. But you weren’t born then I would guess, but I have to tell you that is exactly the approach that the Nixon administration took. They said, “These are all second-rate things. We don’t have time for this. We have to devote our time to the people’s business.” You’re taking exactly the same line they did.

After Pfeiffer continued with evasive talking points, Schieffer again scolded:

SCHIEFFER: But Mr. Pfeiffer, and I don’t mean to be argumentative here, but the President is in charge of the executive branch of the government. It’s my, I’ll just make this as an assertion: when the executive branch does things right, there doesn’t seem to be any hesitancy of the White House to take credit for that. When Osama bin Laden was killed, the President didn’t waste any time getting out there and telling people about it.

But with all of these things, when these things happen, you seem to send out officials many times who don’t even seem to know what has happened. And I use as an example of that Susan Rice who had no connection whatsoever to the events that took place in Benghazi, and yet she was sent out, appeared on this broadcast, and other Sunday broadcasts, five days after it happens, and I’m not here to get in an argument with you about who changed which word in the talking points and all that. The bottom line is what she told the American people that day bore no resemblance to what had happened on the ground in an incident where four Americans were killed.
