• New Face the Nation Host Urged Obama to ‘Destroy the GOP’

    Bob Schieffer announced on Sunday that John Dickerson will replace him as moderator of Face the Nation when he retires this summer.

    Dickerson, Slate’s chief political correspondent and the political director for CBS News, is just the guy to deliver the CBS’ message as 2016 looms.

    The outrageous radical leftist comments he has espoused throughout his career must be exactly why the CBS’ executives and editorial staff picked him for the job.

    He has urged President Obama to “declare War on the Republican Party” in an article in an article he wrote for Slate in 2012, on the eve of President Obama’s second inauguration, titled “Go for the throat!”

    “Washington’s partisan rancor, the size of the problems facing government, and the limited amount of time before Obama is a lame duck all point to a single conclusion: The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP,” Dickerson wrote. “If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.”

    The CBS political director recommended that Obama destroy, pulverize and delegitimize the NRA if he wants to leave any kind of legacy:

    Republicans who want to oppose the president on policy grounds now have to make a decision: Do they want to be associated with a group that opposes, in such impolitic ways, measures like universal background checks that 70 to 80 percent of the public supports? Polling also suggests that women are more open to gun control measures than men. The NRA, by close association, risks further defining the Republican Party as the party of angry, white Southern men.

    “John is first and foremost a reporter—and that’s what he’ll be as anchor of ‘Face the Nation.’ His work in the studio will always be informed by what he’s learned in Iowa, New Hampshire, on Capitol Hill—anywhere there’s news,” CBS News president David Rhodes, whose brother Ben is a top Obama official most famous for editing the truth out of the infamous Benghazi talking points said of Dickerson.

    It’s not like the media coordinates putting former-Democrat operatives in charge of its Sunday shows.
