Will Edwards dare attack Hillary or is that job still only assigned to his wife?
Michael Vick on FNS? Yikes!
Here’s your chance, Fred. Attack the beast. Appropos of the current story of the Clinton machine having dirt on Obama, remind America of those FBI files and publicly ask the Beast, over the airways, if she still has copies of those files and is she using them now.
C’mon, Fred, stop sounding like a History Professor (though a darned good one, I admit) and ATTACK.
Before you go on the show, take a Kill Pill.
Good morning, Alas and all.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): A 60-year anniversary - Rush was expected @ the party but not attend.
Billy Martin, attorney for Sen. Larry Craig - Wallace shows his DNA.
Fred has shown about as much offense as the Baltimore Ravens.
Some liberal was mentioning that he will endorse Obama near primary & retire from running.
Luntz fails to explain that the audience was stacked in favor of Clinton. Even many of the ‘audience questions’ were asked by plants. Several FR threads have exposed CNN and the set-up.
Luntz fails to explain that CNN/Blitzer were forewarned to play nice. This Debate served one purpose: To rehabilitate Hillary from her disastrous showing in the previous debate.
A Clinton FriendÃÂs Role Sets Off Intense Criticism of CNN and a Re-examination
dems caught planting questions in the last debate!!
Behind Clinton's Diamonds and Pearls (ex-intern for Reid asked question, was handpicked by CNN)
Fred has put out the most detailed plans and policy positions for immigration and social security reform of any candidate, Rep or Democrat. I prefer substance over fluff anytime. Slowly but surely, Reps are beginning to realize that fact.
These links will help immensely for anyone to respond to those media types AB, may be added as template permanently on your top post.
Is Fred Luntz any relation to Frank Luntz, the pollster?
Even the McCain campaign start to call CNN as Clinton News Network.
Riyadh is closed down tighter than a drum for the OPEC meeting, so I decided to drop in for the Sunday festivities.
Prince, good to see you.
It doesn’t look like it’s going to be a very exciting Sunday morning from all I can tell. I may even watch FTN if I can figure out what channel it’s on.
How depressing! Here are 3 losers in a row. Is Fox implying that Vick is a Republican?
Is this the best that Fox can do?
I am delighted to see that punk Edwards on.
He has nothing to lose. I hope like the good little pit bull lawyer that he is, that he goes n the attack.
They shut him down at the debate and I was ambivalent about that. It was unfair. Hope he will come out swinging against Hillary.
Unfortunately, you are describing everyday here in the Magic Kingdom---drink coffee and/or shop all day and night.
If he can't fight, maybe he can pull a Tyson and nibble on her ear....
That’s a disturbing image this early in the morning.
CNN is now challenging MSNBC in carrying water to Clintons. Fox is fast catching up, may even beat the other two.
The Clintons cannot stand not being in total control of every situation.
Michael Vick’s Lawyer is going to be the Power Player of the Week.
There is just an extra comma in AB’s listing, but Vick is not a guest.
Billy Martin is a big name in lawyering, but based on his botching of Scooter Libby’s case, I wouldn’t ask him for any advice.
Luntz said they have $45,000 people in his focus group database.
(one heck of a mailing list)
He said they are SPECIFICALLY looking for UNDECIDED voters for the groups.
Probably people who CLAIM TO BE undecided...
Let’s see what we have this week.
Of all the shows I expect to self-aggrandize and overstate its own importance, it is definitely Meet the Press. They are once again demonstrating it this week with their “60th Anniversary Special.” They are once again putting forth the image that we, the media, are more important than the news. Smugness is dripping from my television set.
John Edwards is getting a full 30 minutes on Face the Nation. Edwards hasn’t played much politics and has spent most of his time pushing his hard-left socialist plan for America.
This Week offers us Sen. Fred Thompson, who will likely try to make up some lost ground. Thompson has been slipping heavily as of late, as we all know, but he’s demonstrating that he’s right on a number of issues here and if he can bounce back against Democrat hack Stephanopoulos he can build a little momentum again.
Fox News Sunday demonstrates once again why I hate Fox News. First up is Mike Huckabee, who seems to be becoming a regular on this circuit (I think he’s getting the McCain treatment this time around). He’s gained quite a bit, jumping from a distant fifth to right into the pack. After that comes Larry Craig’s lawyer (yawn) and Michael Vick (come on! Save it for Fox NFL Sunday, not Fox NEWS Sunday.).
Ratings coming up with some brand new analysis...
Any Vince Flynn books in the bookstores in Riyadh?
I'm not sure I can endure 2 appearances of John Edwards.
Must run and make a pot of coffee. brb.
Good morning. Not sure what they were thinking or he was thinking to appear on 2 shows. But then, may be there 's shortage of front runners or even regular MSM favs.
I haven't seen any of his novels, but his genre gets through the KSA censors quite easily---as long as the book isn't published in Tel Aviv...
Be careful when drinking your coffee and yawning during some of these notables comments. When a guy in England yawned while preparing his coffee, his jaw locked up and he was unable to breathe. (A mad rush to the hospital saved his life.)
It’s more probable that Tim is off to reducation camp for that disgraceful debate performance.
The “pearls or diamonds” questioner worked as an intern for Harry Reid. Reid’s son heads Hillary’s Nevada campaign. Evidently, CNN didn’t look far afield for this “undecided” voter.
If John Edwards does that when he is on the camera by himself, it really will show him as a weakling who is afraid to stand up to her when she is actually in the room. He already had that chance and failed to deliver.
Actually, I'm looking forward to getting down to three Democrat candidates, so HIllary Barack and John can have a purse-fight. My money is on Hillary, although Barack has the reach advantage.
LOL. I will take care :)
I'm pretty sure that was a set-up. They wanted to make it look like Timmy is neutral and even-handed about Clinton. He is not.
He can now maneuver to get her elected without being questioned on it.
