Clips From Last Night: "Gang of Six" on media pushing partisanship; Frank Bruni on Washington maturity

Two members of the "Gang of Six" were guests on "Piers Morgan Tonight" – Sens. Tom Coburn and Kent Conrad – and they discussed the debt plans but also the issue of partisanship. "I think the partisanship is made worse by you all," said Coburn. "I don't think the part is nearly as bad as what is portrayed in the press."

New York Times columnist Frank Bruni was also a guest on the show, and he talked about Washington's current battling:

Said Bruni: "There is a sort of dislocation and apprehension...We have got to become more mature in Washington, certainly, and we have got to become more reasonable."

    I think the debt limit could be raised without any "flack" from the public if expenses were cut. ALL OUR REPRESENTATIVES just agree TO CUT THEIR OWN SALARIES AND PAYI FOR THEIR OWN HEALTH CARE! Maybe if they got a taste of what the rest of us are going through they could come to an agreement and balance the budget at the same time!

    I have a real plan to pay down the debt. Email me and judge its merit for yourself.

    love it that bruni also put nancy grace in her place, noting she trumps passion over reason...bang on, bruni....
    nancy grace is the perfect example of an 'ugly american'.

    Look, the fact is that Conservatives want to cut out of control spending of our money. Liberals are only concerned about throwing money into the wind to get the illegal and those dependant on the tax payer dime's vote. End of story.
