Republicans Dealt Big Credibility Blow On Protecting The Country - Yet Fox Guest Juan Williams Repeats Republican Talking Point

Reported by Donna - March 9, 2006

Today the big news on Studio B with Shepard Smith was the announcement that Dubai Port World will sell off the U.S. portion of the port deal to an American entity. Smith went to Juan Williams who is a Senior Correspondant with NPR and frequent guest on Fox. They spoke of how the Republican Party's stand on protecting this country had started to erode and sensed an anger growing from the base.

Williams is supposed to be one of the 'left leaning' guests, so to hear him make a Republican talking point just makes one want to groan.

He made the remark that Democrats don't have a coherent message, especially on Iraq, yet. The Democrats have put messages out there, starting with John Kerry and remember Paul Murtha?

As a whole, the segment between Juan Williams and Shepard Smith was very informative. They agreed that President Bush may already be a lame duck president and how Republicans are distancing themselves from the president except for fund raising events, but, to repeat that often heard Republican talking point about the Democrats not having a message is tired, used too much, and simply untrue.

One simply has to go to the Democratic Party Website to see what the Democratic Agenda is.

Comment: The segment was well framed by Shepard Smith, he talked about the erosion of the Republican Party from Katrina until now and how Republicans are distancing themselves from the president and that Republicans will run on 'local' issues instead of counting or associating themselves with this president.

It just seems so forced to have a Fox commentator constantly use the same old tired Republican talking point about Democrats. Can we have a segment that doesn't feature this talking point?
