NBC's David Gregory is the keynote speaker at conference for GOP advocacy group.
The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), which calls itself âthe voice of small business,â is one of the Republican partyâs strongest allies. The group spent over $1 million on outside ads in the 2010 campaign â all of it backing Republican House and Senate candidates (and, Bloomberg News reported last month, âanother $1.5 million that it kept hidden and said was exemptâ from disclosure requirements). The group is the lead plaintiff in the lawsuit against the Obamacare law and bankrolled state governmentsâ 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 groupâs obvious Republican alliance, it comes as little surprise that the NFIBâs 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 â Tuesdayâs âkeynote addressâ speaker â is NBCâs Meet the Press host David Gregory. He is marketed by NBC as an anchor and âtrusted journalist.â

Karl Rove's dance partner, what a surprise.

Indeed, it could explain a lot. It will be interesting to see exactly how partisan his speech is.

That guy has the longest philtrum of anyone, including Homer Simpson.
Gotta be 3 solid inches long … has to be!
Once you notice how long it is, you can't see anything else on his face.

So that's what that thing is called R4. It does make him look like a monkey. I've hated him since he danced with Rove.

This is NBC's objective moderator of Meet the Press? Let Rachel Maddow speak at Move On or something and see how crazy the right would get?
She would never do it.

May I introduce myself to you, r4?

He's despicable. He's also in the process of joining an exclusive private club in Chevy Chase, MD that doesn't allow blacks or women.

I don't like him. He seems like a big phony.
I still miss Tim Russert on Sunday mornings.

I saw a segment with Gregory and Chuck Todd the other day and thought I would vomit. I hate those two self-satisfied egomaniacs.

Wow, R10. I hadn't heard about it.
What a vile pig.

He looks like Francine from "Arthur."
|by This explains so much||reply 15||05/12/2012|
Who is Francine? I never saw "Arthur," but looked on IMDB. I don't see any Francine.
Are you taking about the Dudley Moore movie or something else?

I emailed and said he should be fired.

David Gregory is stuck-up on himself, can't stand him.

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.
|by This explains so much||reply 23||06/07/2012|
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.
