I don't know if the word "decimates" is appropriate but he does soundly criticize her and her colleagues for their failure to ask probing questions of Obama about his health care coverage and, wonder of wonder, causes Andrea to go silent for once in her life. It is also interesting to watch how Andrea, objective news reporter that she is, essentially flak for the Obama administration. Plus she looks ghastly.

Appearing on Andrea Mitchell's MSNBC 1 p.m. ET hour show on Tuesday, Wisconsin Congressman Sean Duffy slammed the press for not doing its job in pointing out the hypocrisy of ObamaCare being delayed for certain groups but not for all Americans: "...the media won't ask the question about why are you [the Obama administration] treating families different than big business....That's how pathetic news reporting has become, when they won't ask tough questions to the administration."

That response was prompted by Mitchell ranting that Republican calls for a one-year delay of the ObamaCare individual mandate was a "non-negotiable demand." Moments later, after Duffy explained that the GOP has "been incredibly reasonable, making a small ask," Mitchell was aghast: "You consider it a small ask he [Obama] gets rid of the central part of his health care plan that was upheld by the vote, a presidential election, and the United States Supreme Court." Duffy replied: "Andrea, hold on. That's your spin." Mitchell laughably asserted: "That's not spin."
