|GOP Sundays won't be the same without Bob.|
GOP Sundays will be short one. For now. CBS announced that the longtime host of Face The Nation is retiring in the summer. Bob Schieffer confirms that he's done and he'll be out before Fall quarter.
I am guessing CBS will either place Norah O'Donnell and Major Garrett in the chair.
I am even betting on NFL commentator James Brown becoming the predecessor of Face The Nation.
Bob Schieffer delivered the news to his alma mater at Texas Christian University.
He joined the CBS team when he was a young cub reporter. He was working for CBS Radio before he joined the news room. Schieffer is one of the few journalists to have covered all four of the major Washington national assignments: the White House, the Pentagon, United States Department of State, and United States Congress. His career with CBS has almost exclusively dealt with national politics.
Bob was a big player in the presidential debates. He was the moderator for the 2004, 2008, and 2012 U.S. Presidential Debates.
|I am wondering how more times will Schieffer give airtime to these Republican lawmakers. McCain and Graham are two senile lawmakers who believe that the key to peace is more war. They oppose the Six Power deal to disarm Iran.|
He's hosted fixtures such as Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC). These lawmakers have appeared on GOP Sundays more than most lawmakers.
Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) is the retiring. The Minority Leader is passing the torch to either Durbin or Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY). Schumer is going to be a thorn in the president's proposal for ending nuclear weapons in Iran.
McCain is going to run again. It may be a whole lot easier now that J.D. Hayworth is spending more time on Newsmax than on a rematch. McCain faced a tough primary, Hayworth was the insurgent candidate who wanted to kick the geezer out. His former running mate, the ex-governor of Alaska hasn't decided on running for the clown car or her old friend's spot.
Graham already fired his shots at perennial candidate Hillary Clinton. He's thinking about jumping into the clown car. He is aiming not only at Clinton but Stallmigo Rand Paul (R-KY) on foreign policy.
Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) and Sen. Bob Menandez (D-NJ) are trying to screw the president over. The Tennessee Republican and embattled Democratic senator is trying to pass legislation requiring the president goes to the Senate before they can confirm a deal with Iran.
The Six Global Powers have compromised a peace deal with Iran. Conservatives are trying to undermine the peace deal as "weakness". The Republicans lawmakers led by Mitch The Turtle (R-KY) and Weeper John Boehner (R-OH) are trying to screw the historical deal.
They're too busy sucking Benjamin Netanyahu's log. Netanyahu is giving these two and Sen.Tom Cotton (R-AR) the business. Hope he's wearing a condom when he's giving them anal hurt.
Hopefully Bob Schieffer gives more airtime to the Democrats during his last five months holding the chair. But I'm not holding my breath on that one.
