South Dakota’s own Tom Brokaw delivered a blistering critique of the 112th Congress, whose terms now expire as the nation swears in the 113th Congress.
“They have now sealed the deal,” Brokaw said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe today. He called the group “easily the worst (Congress) in the nation’s history.”
See the video below. Brokaw’s remarks start around 2:30.
Hardly a demagogue, Brokaw delivers the assessment with the matter-of-fact tone one might expect from a former network news anchor. That seems to make the sting more intense.
Members of the 112th might disagree with our boy from Yankton, but having this remark on your final report card can be no source of pride.
