As his Meet the Press predecessor, Tim Russert, did before him, David Gregory likes to go to the videotape to highlight a guest’s past inconsistencies.
“You say you’re in favor of the bill, Senator. But in 2011 on this very program, you said you were against the bill. Roll the tape.” After tape ends, the senator replies… “Well, David, I’m not having a good morning. But a few minutes ago, you in fact wished me a good morning. Roll the tape.”
What if we could roll the tape in our relationships? “You say you like French restaurants and traveling to Australia, Susan. But in 2011 on your JDate profile, you wrote ‘low maintenance kind of gal.’ Roll the tape.”
Let’s hope she doesn’t go to the tape of when you said you were a ‘go with the flow kind of guy.’
