NBC's David Gregory is the keynote speaker at conference for GOP advocacy group.
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), which calls itself “the voice of small business,” is one of the Republican party’s strongest allies. The group spent over $1 million on outside ads in the 2010 campaign — all of it backing Republican House and Senate candidates (and, Bloomberg News reported last month, “another $1.5 million that it kept hidden and said was exempt” from disclosure requirements). The group is the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit against the Obamacare law and bankrolled state governments’ challenges to the law. The NFIB has also taken stances against allowing the EPA to regulate greenhouse gases, opposing regulations on businesses, and supporting curtailing union rights.
Given the group’s obvious Republican alliance, it comes as little surprise that the NFIB’s three-day 2012 Small Business Summit, which begins Monday, will feature headliners Karl Rove and House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH).
But the first name and photo on the invitation for the $150-per-person event — Tuesday’s “keynote address” speaker — is NBC’s Meet the Press host David Gregory. He is marketed by NBC as an anchor and “trusted journalist.”
Wonder when the cunt will let Rachel Maddow back on his show?
I don't think the dickless wonder can stand the competition, or her intelligence.
David Gregory tries in vain to be "just folks" on his show, repeatedly mentioning his children and ending each and every interview with a dumb sports question that has little or nothing to do with the subject at hand.
More on David's possible demise on Sunday mornings.
Rachel Maddow would be awesome as host, and I guarantee she'd bring in a younger demo.
They'd never do it because they prefer a corporate hack with tanking numbers to an intelligent woman who will actually challenge her guests.

The sad truth is that the republicans would stop showing up, because they can no longer count on Meet The Press to let them spew talking points.
David won the "Howdy Doody Lookalike" contest in grammar school.
