14% boost, Wow!!!
Of course, all this hub bub now about the PDB but I had a discussion with some women (most don't follow political issues) and even the "uninformed" commented on how exactly was the President supposed to stop the attack from happening since we only had threats and no specifics.
Fox News is a big help because since a majority of cable listeners are tuning to them, at least the dissection of the news is done by fairly "logical" people.
Not like ABC with Jennings and Richard Clarke commenting on Condi's "inquisition."
Americans are funny, they stand up for the underdog, and it's starting to feel like the Bush administration is being "picked on." (which of course we know they are)
It will backfire on the Dems if America perceives the hearings as a witch-hunt.

Condi Rice came across as a very articulate and informed. I think her testimony surprised a lot of people who had never heard her speak.

Fox News Channel notched 1.9 million viewers from 9 a.m. to noon, while CNN grabbed 1.2 million and MSNBC had 470,000.
Fox has 4 times the amount of viewers than MSNBC, the home of sodium pentathol Chrissy Matthews.

Too bad they didn't also ask whether Clinton had done all he could.

Condi is quite a contrast with Joycelyn Elders, isn't she?
Clinton's idea of what America looked like (I'm going to have a cabinet that looks like America) became clear when we looked at his appointees. His opinion of America was obviously low. Bush, by comparison, has surrounded himself with very capable people.
When some people suggested a few months ago that Condi might be a candidate for president in 2008, I didn't give it much of a chance, because she just wasn't that well known. But if she continues to be in the public eye, and carries herself as well as she has during this episode, she just might have a chance.

Bump for Condi!
Shows that the majority of American are a bunch of fickle boobs who can't think logically and are lead around by the latest sound bite
I sometimes wonder whether Americans are worthy of the sacrifice of lives our miltary occurs

That explains why the leftist media and the Dems are so desperate about the Aug 6 PDB. They are clutching at straws trying to blame Bush and using revisionist history to restore the pitiful Clinton legacy.

That session with Condi was a joke. Nothing more than grandstanding for the cameras; for the folks back home. The applause was disgusting.

(Two many wimps around)
I did watch a bit of MSNBC after the hearing--and as a result joined the ongoing boycott some freepers have formed.
But during Dr. Rice's appearance I was on Fox.
"Rices appearance drew a higher than usual audience to cable new channels for that time of the day"
Of course, the major channels carried it too. But who would have thought that her testimony would be tuned on in the back of the hair salon(at 11:30) with the stylists running back to catch it every chance they got? Go, Condi, go! They all were applauding her "smokin" the dimwits.

Dr. Rice is on C-Span right now!

The ordinary American is smart enough to figure out that knowing a threat exists doesn't mean you can do anything about it. We all know there are drunk drivers out on the roads, we don't blame the family that gets plowed by one because they should have done something about the threat.
We all know there are thieves and murderers out there, but we don't blame the person who gets killed because someone didn't do something to stop them.
The BLAME for 9-11 belongs to the terrorists and we are allowing ourselves to get sidetracked by looking backward when all eyes should be to the front.

It backfired on the jerks! I love it. You would think reading the media headlines that people were ready to tar and feather the President and Condi. Obviously the media has failed.
