Had the opportunity today to go up to Manassas Airport to hear Senator George Allen as well as Senator John Warner and VA Attorney General Bob McDonnell speak. I also noticed NBC Reporter David Gregory circling the area and waiting for Senator Allen to complete his speech so he could interview the Senator. Senator Allen was at the airport to receive the endorsements of several VFW organizations and to talk about issues important to the citizens of Virginia before the election in 3 weeks.
Senator Allen spoke about the importance of the war on terrorism and the important front we have on this war in Iraq as well as preparing the Iraqi people to take control of their country and new democracy. He spoke of the importance of this war and that the threats are real and we will not get a second chance and if the terrorist in Iraq are given an opening they will hit again. “Jim Webb will give them that opening”.
Senator Allen continued and spoke about many important issues and then concluded his speech and thanked those gathered there. I then noticed David Gregory move over to interview the Senator and was able to find a spot to get a photo and hear the exchange. Senator Allen started the interview stating the important issues concerning the citizens of Virginia as well as the United States.
I could see that Gregory was not interested at all with the facts and the issues and as soon as he could he brought up the “Maccaca” issue and how it will effect the election. Senator Allen was polite but also quick to return the conversation to the issues and the facts. Gregory once again did not seem interested and followed up with the question of how the Senator feels the voters will feel about him since he supported President Bush so often. Senator Allen stated that he felt confident that the voters will support him favorably and only wished the President “agreed with him more often”. Classic line and reply and Gregory lost interest in the interview right away. Doubt much of the interview will actually make it to broadcast for Gregory did not get the “gem” he was looking for.
It is unfortunate that Gregory, as well as the MainScream media and many LOCAL newspapers do not see that Senator Allen is talking the important issues and what he will do when he is re-elected by the people of Virginia. They seem to ignore that Jim Webb continues to avoid the true issues and has the support of the MainScream\Local media in doing this. Thanks for reading the blogs and talking with the people who attend functions and get the truth out…
Was not sure what show Gregory was with now so did a search on Google. Found many things that he has done over the years and there are too many to list here now but did see this listing which brought back memories of his actions…
"NBC White House correspondent David Gregory, who apologized last week for calling White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan a "jerk," called into MSNBC's IMUS Thursday morning — apparently drunk!"

So has anybody heard anything about the Democratic Representative from Louisiana, William Jefferson lately???
"FBI agents videotaped Rep. William Jefferson, a Louisiana Democrat, accepting $100,000 in cash they said was intended as a bribe for a Nigerian official and later found $90,000 of the money hidden in his freezer, according to a court document released on Sunday."
"The document said the eight-term congressman received the cash from an FBI informant, who approached the bureau in March 2005 with her suspicion that Jefferson and two business associates conspired to defraud her out of $3.5 million."
