No pushing at the door please!
Here you go, early birds!
If anyone wants on (or off) the PING LIST, please let me know.
We heard a lot of peremptory charges from pres’ent Obama last night, and Candy Crowley made sure that soon-to-be President Romney did not have a chance to answer.
The buck stops: her.
Anybody who doesn't believe there is media bias should have been disabused of that notion last night. Besides saving Obama from his tortured timeline on Benghazi, the very questions that were chosen came right out of Axelrod's notebook.
The worst was the "What are you going to do to correct the inequality of women earning 72% as much as men for doing the same work?" We had a lesson on "begging the question" a while back. That was a perfect example.
Very perceptive. I had to think about how Mitt had inoculated himself against that attack.
Roscoe drank a pint jar of Nofavors Triple Rectified Headbust Spirits with the greasy cracklin’s and his inards went from peremptory to complete emptory as he leaned on the hood of the slum limo.
Pretty funny. Does that drink come in a 40 oz. size?
Every time I serve jury duty, the defense mounts a peremptory challenge against me.
I think he may have seen my bumper stickers.
40 oz.? You planning on poisoning a horse or embalming someone?
The first time I heard the word, it was in that forum. I have also been chased from the jury by a peremptory challenge. When the facts don’t favor them, lawyers don’t want anyone with an I.Q. above 80 passing judgment.
(See “The State of California vs. Orenthal James Simpson.”)
We Have Capital Punishment in FL, and as soon as the defense reads MY profile, I am OUT! LOL.
Embalming a horse.
Candy “Creepy” Crowley deferred peremperortorily to her Liege all throughout last night’s “debate”...
And, despite Candy’s ministrations (not to be confused with minestrone,) it has become quite obvious that the per-emperor has no clothes.
I was the first one on that thread to comment on the ludicrous satement that cell phones are a Constitutional right.
I once bet on an embalmed horse. I’m still waiting on him to find the finish line.
(For a sec there I thought there would be another ‘M’ word ;-)
You'd think McBama would have learned from Lybia.
LOL! I was headed that way, but couldn't decide between menstrual and minstrel, the former insulting Ms. Crowley and the latter insulting the President. Moochelle would have been able to pick and choose. "Montster-al" works for the lot of them.
Of course I can’t even spell that country correctly.
The only thing Obama ever learned from was Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”
Well we have to admit the current administration has elevated women a bit - the POTUS needs Hillary and Candy to cover his pathetic azz when he screws up!
Only in Candyland did Obama win that debate. Mitt walked away the clear winner of more votes. That's the only thing that counts. Looks like the undecided voter panels went overwhelmingly went for Romney. Game, set....the match comes on Nov6th, and it is final.
Answer - 1 went = correction.
Obama looks like a bobble doll in that photo....bobbing around grasping for a winning response. ROFL Love that pic.
I just did a quick scan of abc cnn and msnbc websites - not one has the crowley backtrack easily available, when in fact I just saw on Fox that she said it actually took closer to a MONTH for bammer to claim it was terrorism....but the liberals will never see that
Love it! I am listening to Rush, he has nailed the debate down as a clear Romney win.
Pathetic, isn’t it? He wanted to be seen as an alpha male last night, but he was obviously hiding under Candy’s voluminous skirt-but where Hillary is concerned, I don’t see her going gently into that goodnight-she will quite rightly try to geld him-likely with Bill’s help...
The Hillary 2016 campaign begins in earnest on Nov 7, 2012.
Rush seems to be seeing this from the view point of the average person who generally has selective hearing.....
It's what I was sayin last night while texting my friends and watching the debate. The bengazi thing only succeeded in making people see the clear media bias and Obozo trying to make the people believe he had called this a terrorist thing isn't going to register, we all would have heard that comment (Maybe they're trying to get us to believe we're all hallucinating again) when we have already been fed three lies by Obozo and company and now Romney has Obozo and the Media caught in this latest lie just in time for the final debate in Florida.
Sporting a peremptory attitude
And the moderator’s assistance
Obama attempted to overcome
The shade of any resistance
A debate is not the best place
To tell lies and spin that way-
Mounting attacks to bury facts
Won’t cause opinions to sway
It looks as if the tough guy act
Didn’t convince us all that he won-
After one more debate, get a plate
And a fork-I think he’s done...
And I think his surrogates pissed the people at Gallup off with their attitude toward their polls-Gallup shows Romney up another 2 points this AM...
Looks like the strutting Obama thought he won last night’s debate, too. He launched a new hashtag on twitter: #ObamaWinsDebate. ROFL Still clueless after two debates.
1 1/2 hours of Libya isn’t going to allow him to hide. Too funny that this last debate is exclusively on foreign policy.
No easy way to campaign in earnest till Hillary finishes this gig as Sec of State...I think late January she hits the trail. She will talk foreign policy without any QandA allowed. Like she did when she ran for NY Senator on the endless listening tour. With secret service acting to keep those pesky reporters at bay.
I think you may be right-or she may take revenge by handing over more dirt on Bengazigate-she and Bill are very good at that sort of thing-remember those audits and FBI files? Either way, she’s gonna be loaded for bear...
I was saying, the fat lady has sung and she didn’t hit a note. I think folks get it that Obama denied it was terrorism. Splitting hairs just further weakens the MSM hold on Americans. Do I believe what you tell me to, or do I believe my own lying eyes?
Romney in a landslide.
Ooohh, that would be cool. Dirt eruptions ongoing till Nov6th.
The little twit can twitter all he wants-he still looked small, petulant and out of his league.
Peremptory poetry points prevail.
