State of the Union reaction as well as immigration are the big topics for Sunday morning, also Super Bowl and Gov. Chris Christie. This was supposed to be a grand week for him as a host for the big game, but it isn’t turning out the way he hoped, is it?
Also, still not seeing any guests to discuss the State Department report on Keystone XL. Paul Ryan appears on “This Week,” and Eric Cantor will be on “Face The Nation.” He actually acknowledged (finally realized?) that not everybody owns their own business or even wants to (this is reported by Byron York no less). Prolly one of those bolt-out-of-the-blue moments for him.

On the Sunday shows BENGHAZI will not be forgotten! And Meet the Press will definitely cover the embiggening Christie scandal, having scheduled John Wisniewski BEFORE MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki dropped a bombshell Saturday with allegations from Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer (D) that Gov. Christie withheld Hurricane Sandy funds to pressure approval for a big money pet project development by The Rockefeller Group. Of course Kornacki’s UP will have more.

No surprise, the Chris Christie scandal dominates the talk shows Sunday morning. Bob Schieffer invited Marco Rubio on to ask him how bad he feels about it. Chris Wallace chooses to ignore the unpleasantness. Candy Crowley beats the racehorses of 2016, and yes, there will be McCain.

Mitt Romney was booked on Fox News Sunday because for reasons known only to God Melissa Harris-Perry & Friends said mean things about his adopted grandson earlier this week. You’d think there’d be something of political import to feature on Fox News this Sunday but poking MSNBC in the eye is more in line with the Ailes/Murdoch business model.

Uh oh, hard times may be ahead for David Gregory, hope he doesn’t lose his country club membership. In view of recent broadcasts, if I were a cynical person, I’d be wondering how much the NFL paid 60 Minutes to run the peewee QB story, it’s not like the brain damage data would get parents [...]
