Highlights from the 8.3.14 Sunday Shows

Cleveland Clinic President and CEO Dr. Toby Cosgrove on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with David Gregory: “I think it’s a terrific sign. And as you know, the incubation period is somewhere between eight and 21 days. And people spread the disease most when they’re sick, now which is a good thing. And it looks to me like he is now in even a recovery stage or has been able to handle it.”

Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the Center for Disease Control, on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Norah O’Donnell: “I don’t think it’s in the cards that we would have widespread Ebola in this country because the way it spreads in Africa is really two things. First, in hospitals where there isn’t infection control. And second, in burial practices where people are touching the bodies of people who have died from Ebola.  So it’s not going to spread widely in the U.S.  Could we have another person here, could we have a case or two? Not impossible. We say in medicine never say never. But we know how to stop it here.  But to really protect ourselves, the single most important thing we can do is stop it at the source in Africa. That’s going to protect them and protect us.” Read more

Sen. Joe Manchin on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer: “Our main goal right now is to protect our embassy and all the Americans that we have over there, and I think the President has every right, plus, he has the responsibility to do that.  I’m fine with that.  Do whatever it takes to protect our people, our embassy; we’re not going to be run out of that country.”

On the terror threat in Iraq, President Barack Obama told George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week” : “Now, we are spending a lot of time, and we have been for years, making sure we are improving intelligence to respond to that.  We have to improve our surveillance, reconnaissance, intelligence there.  Special Forces are going to have a role.  And there are going to be times where we take strikes against organizations that could do us harm.” Read more

Best Quotes from the Sunday Shows – 6.15.14

Topics of conversation on yesterday’s Sunday Shows ranged from the defeat of Eric Cantor in Tuesday’s Virginia primary to U.S. military involvement in Iraq to Father’s Day. Here are your top quotes from Sunday’s public affairs programming.

Asked whether his primary upset was surprising on ABC’s “This Week,” Rep. Eric Cantor said, “Absolutely…I don’t think anybody in the country thought that the outcome would be what it was. And, you know, I just am a believer, as I said that night, and subsequently, that there are some things that happen for a reason and we may not be able to really discern it now and given the perspective of time, I think we’re going to be able to look back at this, and what seemed really bad at the time may turn out to be really good.”

Asked by CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union” what it was like in the moment he realized he’d be defeated, Cantor said, “Well, you know, I was with my family. And it’s very comforting, as you know, if you have a strong family. I have a wonderful wife of 25 years, three wonderful kids, two of whom were with me…And I told them, I said, look, dad is going to lose. And I actually called my son who works up in New York and I told him. He said, you’re kidding. And I said, no, I’m really not. He said, you’re kidding. I said, no. I said, look, but things happen for a reason.” Read more

“I think we need to have more information about the long-term consequences, and do everything that we can to make sure that these terrorists do not get back onto the battlefield,” said Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-Vt.) on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“I would’ve been a strong voice of caution at the table if I were still in government during this discussion. I don’t know that I would’ve fallen on my sword on this one. But I would’ve made very sure that decision makers understood the risk they were embracing,” said former CIA director and NSA general Michael Hayden also on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

“It was an extraordinary day yesterday and an extraordinary day for America, because a member of our armed forces who had been in captivity almost five years will now be reunited with his mother and father, whom we had the opportunity to see yesterday and who are over the moon,” said National Security Advisor Susan Rice on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Read more
