Well, it looks like it'll be another round of ISIS and Ebola on this morning's Sunday talkers for America. Aren't you just thrilled? Oh, look, Leon Panetta will be featured on ABC too so be sure to check out this article by The Daily Beast's Michael Cohen:
Panetta likes to present himself an “honest,” “straight-talking,” aw-shucks kind of guy—the son of Italian immigrants who has lived the American Dream. But in reality he is the quintessential example of how Washington corrupts. Principles are conditional and where you sit is where you stand; politics trumps policy, even bad policy that puts American lives at risk; military force is a magic elixir not only in solving international problems but in burnishing one’s public image (though it appears for Panetta that this mainly applies to Democrats); it’s also the most important criteria in how you judge a president’s national security decision-making and his or her requisite strength.
He's a villager's villager just like Mark Halperin.. Read the entire post to see his scuminess. I'm kind of surprised that he didn't make the rounds on all the shows today.
