Thank you again for your faithful posting.

Wonder why they gave the General so much airtime? And where are the peaceniks now? Aren’t they upset about the casualties now? And the drones?

guess casualties are not important when its this administration...tells you the Left’s true values and support for our troops.

It looks like The One is trying to flood the air with National Security issues. Taking credit for drone kills, or shifting the heat off increasing casualties, or taking the heat off the Obama Medical Care Final Solution?

Cassius Clay (Muhammed Ali) used to call it-float like a butterfly and sting like a bee.

Well, Obama here is the 21st c version of being elusive: you can run, but you can’t hide-the former mayor of Wasilla is after you ass and in the last 48 hours your agenda has been turned upside down.

Sarah Palin has the ball now and she is not about to give it up anytime soon.

As usual, Lindsay Lapdog Grahamnesty on the Sunday morning talk show circus. Probably going to talk about what a wonderfully qualified judge Sotomayer is and why he voted for her. Gonna slam all those biggoted rebel-rousers out there in flyover country...I can just hear it all now. What an absolute disgrace this man is....one of many in WDC.

Morning AB, ALL...

...So Obama’s down to -8 in the approval index?

Look for that number to keep sinking.

Should be an interesting day today about the health care debacle. Got an eagle eye ready to take it all in.

Yep.

Notice how Cindy Whatshername's 15 minutes must have been used up. She used to be all over the news programs, even when few showed up at her anti-war protests at Crawford, for example.

taking the heat off the Obama Medical Care Final Solution

I predict another primetime presser this or next week, if his poll number keep falling.

Even more key is that Obama is at 50% approval, and this is the 23rd straight day Obama has been at 51% or below in his approval (favorable)number. I would call that a trend.

Bingo norwaypinesavage...health care is now on back burner(so those nazis can go back to drinking beer and clean their trailer park(no offense to manufactured home owners) maybe even think of gittin one of dem huntin licenses. If this ego maniac socialistic brain washed commie thinks he can proceed with his plans to destroy America and what we as Americans believe in, well bring it on. We may have become lax and apathetic due to a robust economy and non accountability attitude, but WE(I’m somewhat guilty of some negatives as well) will rise from the ashes as the Phoenix and chase the rats into the sea. We will renew our strong values and unite as one country UNDER GOD. The majority of us will realize that racism is finito bambito and has been for a number of decades. The media will experience a total rebirth with facts being reported, not a biased slant. The wonderful thing about all of this will be it will be accomplished through a peaceful non violent process. We must educate those that fear the truth, that fear an opinion that is not in line with what is being fed to them through the likes of Gibson,Couric,Boxer,Reed,obamma and yes mc cain and other RINOs. Peaceful revolution through the town hall meetings, tea parties and best of all the ballot box.

The drone kill has been deemed a hoax by the taliban.

The media will continue to tout it as a success.

Graham should’ve voted against the Latina bigot.

But, he's correct in stating that she'll likely be less liberal that Souter.

And, this isn't about Graham, it's about a majority of voters waking up to the realization that presidential elections have serious Supreme Court consequences.

I finally upgraded my cable to their HD programming.

Every time I try to watch FoxNewsHD, my eyes ache after about 30 seconds.

They have so many animated graphics going on and their color scheme is so bright that I have to turn over to the regular SD digital FoxNews.

I also get FoxBusinessHD. I didn't get FoxBusiness previously. The FoxBusinessHD is even worse than the FoxNewsHD screen.

That's my rant for the day, morning, hour, moment.

So the point of Gen. Jones being all over the place is to get Clinton’s name in the news, in the public eye.

Jones’ job is to say how wonderful “former president Clinton” (he keeps saying that over and over) is.

Perhaps the National Security Adviser is the “duty” Admin official who was tasked with staying in DC while the rest of Obama’s Cabinet and staff go on vacation.

Here is what is going on with MTP, I think.

The wh and David and his producer chat. The wh says what messages they want to get out. They decide on who the messenger will be and what questions Gregory will ask to advance the message.

The only reason to watch this is to find out what smoke and mirrors they want to throw at us this week.

Good morning. Just having breakfast...

Yes, I wondered about having him and the NSA on. Probably about North Korea?

Anyway, sometimes you can tell an awful lot about the driveby media’s memes by what they avoid as much as by what they cover.

So, color me “surprised” that only CNN seems to cover the town halls, Obama’s snitch network, and the health care bill.

David Gregory puts on his theraputic Oprah voice to thank Bloomberg for being brave and strong enough to come in and be on teevee after the terrible, awful day that New York “suffered” (a favorite word of the left) yesterday.

How ridiculous is that!!

I agree with you 100%.

I remember when Russert nearly got on his knees asking BHO over and over again if he was gonna run for president. To me, that Sunday show set the tone for NBC’s complete and utter political love affair with “the Won”. NBC news is a sham is not ashamed to be in the tank with BHO and all his lousy, lowlife, liberal losers in the wh.

I’m sure they never discuss what George is going to cover on his Sunday show, no? /s

CNN’s Sunday guests (at least one per Sunday) have consistently been more pertinent to genuine ‘news’ issues for as long as you have been posting this Sunday line-up. Since I don’t like the CNN presenters or the studio style or the bias, I rarely watch it, but I do look at their guest list for their opinion of what is truly important.

I don’t know which parts of their Sunday morning show go on their international programming, but perhaps their desire to interview an actual newsmaker has to do with the worldwide audience.

Okay, the second segment of MTP is to push the idea that the stimulus package was really good and it’s working great but it’s real hard and we all have to be patient.

Unless some catastrophic event ‘impacted’ them almost simultaneously, the issue is irrelevant.

If the VP had to ‘move up’, he/she would/could immediately appoint a new VP, pending almost immediate Congressional approval.

That makes the VP slot an effective ‘buffer’ by putting the new VP ahead of The Speaker, etc.

Michael Bloomberg never met a camera he didn’t love.

Because frankly he should back at the scene if he really cared, go to hell.

You’re right though....come on...Gregory’s telling Bloomberg how brave and strong he is (MTP not on here yet so I’ll be watching to see this bit of theater) when people have died and loved ones grieve?

You can’t make this stuff up.

Mitch McConnell is doing a great job with Chris Wallace.

Re Administration accusations of anti-public health care protesters being organized, he said - it is ridiculous for the folks with an 8 million dollar email list, called “Organizing for America” to be criticizing other people who want their opinions to be heard.
and
Congress will be aggressively opposed on a bipartisan basis to closing Guantanamo by next January.

And for our third template on MTP, it’s gun control and the evil NRA and it is only the NRA that thinks citizens should have the right to have guns.

Unless we take away peoples guns, police officers will not come home to their families.

I cannot believe this. This is on the level of Dora the Explorere.

Coming up on Fox Sunday: discussion of tea parties.

Let me guess: Not one of the panelists will express the voice-lessnes felt by millions of Americans who are trying to stand up against a powerful juggernaut directed by their own government.

They say we’re “Organized”..Ha! Do we LOOK organized? We don’t have professions spokespersons (unlike the gov’t talking heads WE pay for). We have no funding. We don’t have talking points.

When did the media stop caring about the powerless vs. the powerful?
