Former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw made an appearance on MSNBC's The Cycle on March 4 and criticized President Obama for campaigning too much instead of governing. Brokaw also castigated Obama for refusing to negotiate with Republicans over the budget impasse and the sequester cuts.
Progressive panel member Touré asked Brokaw if the budget impasse was because the GOP is "refusing" to work with Obama because they are "incented to not work with the president."
Brokaw replied that he didn't think that Republicans were flat out refusing to work with the President but don't want to give away too much. Brokaw went on to lament that Obama is doing little else but demonizing the GOP instead of looking for ways to work with them.
