Problems with David Gregory

I've been waiting for this to come out. I have been watching MTP for 20 years. For many Sundays this was something that I religiously HAD to watch because I knew Tim Russert was going to put someone on the hot seat, make them squirm, and highlight something that I needed to know. I loved watching the sleezy politicians SQUIRM.

Unfortunately, the problem with David Gregory can be summed up in one word: TONE. He is too cheery, and happy, and smiley. This is NOT the Today Show, and unfortunately he seems to want to convert MTP into a political version of the Today Show. MTP is supposed to be serious, hard-hitting, and direct. What's interesting is that one of the best episodes more recently was when Savannah Guthrie stepped in. She was TOUGH, took no prisoners, and called out her guests.

David Gregory needs to get the smile off his damn face. These are serious times, and we want someone who makes us feel that they understand this. David unfortunately is not doing this, which is very surprising, as he was a PITBULL back in the day when he was a White House correspondent under Bush. What happened to that guy???
