Always a good day when a FReeper appears on TV.

They generally go postal if graphics are added to these threads. Personally, I think they add a lot to the discussion.

Usually, if you go to their home page at the start of the debate or slightly before there will be a direct link.

It’s game 7 Indians v Red Sox, it starts at 8:00 as well.

And a candidate should not have to “sell their conservative credentials” they should be known for them already.

I mean come on Rudy talking Conservative is like a Vegetarian sharing BBQ chicken recipes...

I was listening to Glenn Beck take an online survey matching him to which Republican candidate he should vote for. Survey said Tom Tancredo. Glenn just said “Can’t do it.” Alas, why? Hunter and Tancredo are principled and should be given a chance.

Van’t argue that! Too many are going to vote out of fear, and try to stratagize their way into the White House. Won’t work, a moderate will not win against Shrillary. But none the less, they continue to listen to the pundits and their buddies in the media, who only want her to win and will brainwash as many as possible to do so.

I won’t be strongarmed or bullied into following that example.

Sorry. Still on the work ‘puter and the pic didn’t show up. Yet another reason for all aspects of the events to be posted on these threads: People at work who hope to catch what they can when they get home on FR.

Once upon a time there was some validity to asking the live threads be graphics free when broadband was rare. I still think it's nice to keep the size of the file to a sensible size - 100kb or so. They do add to the enjoyment of the thread.

The GOP/Stupid Party is letting the Democrat Media write the story-line, while Republicans, and Americans in general, treat politics like it’s a game show.

We’re well on the way towards a revival of the Soviet politburo system...in which you have elections, yes...but the results are already pre-determined because the elites have decided who you get to vote for.

It was great having a free republic while it lasted.

Rudy being nominated will be a train wreck for the GOP. Not even considering his liberal viewpoints on abortion and immigration, there’s his marriages, his divorces, his alienation from his kids, dressing in drag, Bernie Kerik...yada, yada, yada.

“They are basically saying its a 2 person race.

Romney and Rudy.”

______________

Sounds like it might be a “skip this one” type debate. I am really sick of any of the media types trying to insist everyone is for either of them. I don’t hear it, I don’t see it, and neither does ANYONE I know. Makes ya wonder if our votes really matter at all.

It’s like the polls that are taken, comprised of 5 to 7 hundred people, means that the majority of that poll voting for one person, means the same percentage of voters in that state or caucus would vote for that person. Its ludicrous!
