Contemplate serious discussions with seasoned conservatives.

FWIW I would rather my Senator (Chambliss) not be on the same show as Goober Graham.

Yeah, yeah, I know. I have some concerns with Chambliss too but he is not Gooberish.

Well, I see James Jones is on the Communist networks: Communist Broadcasting Network and Communist News Network. Go figure.

Foxnews Sunday appears to have all left leaning guests. I think I'll pass today and read the comments.

retired Marine Gen. Anthony Zinni

Peacnick Marine. Been retired almost 20 years. No surprise they would go to him instead of someone actually involved in the war for commentary.

Also no surprise the CBS would make sure to have only people who are going to say what they want to hear on. Would not do to have anyone critical of Dear Reader to soil their precious air waves with any heretical thoughts.

I understand the elder Casey was a descent man. I wonder what he would say about what his son has become.

8 dead US military in Afghanistan yesterday, and Barack Obama continues to channel Lyndon Johnson and Robert MacNamara in his management of the war. Can't wait until Charles Rangel is back to promote the idea starting the military draft again. Maybe after he files his tax returns.

Good Morning, All! Well, the Friends reported that Johnny Mac is going to remake the Repub Party so it's more moderate (oh boy!)...even using his own campaign funds to support candidates. Dick Morris chuckled about how well that would work reminding everyone how McCain lost the election with his stimulus stunt. Fr. Jonathan blasted Michael Moore and his commie movie defending the good of capitalism...he was quite animated and actually apologized for getting so excited.

That, and explain how Ford sales are down a whopping 5%, while GM and Chrysler are down ONLY slightly over 40%. The only differences are "bailout" and "possibly still in business 5 years from now", so this must be more evidence that government manipulation of the market works.

Saw a comment on another thread that I thought was funny.

You know how we have these sayings like “meet his Waterloo” “jump the shark” “got thrown under the bus”.

We got a new one this week. For epic failure, you can say “he went to Copenhagen”

I will be watching Evan Bayh (one of my senators) since he has been conspicuously absent over the last couple of months.

He has a reputation as a moderate, but what he really is is a bellweather of his re-election chances.

I will watch and see what he has to say. It might provide some interesting tea leaf reading.

Morning AB,all I hear it has actually cooled down on the mainland in most areas must be nice!

Hurricanes won last night finally two teams we can be proud of in Fla. Gators/Canes.

Yet another very weak lineup which is to be expected as we review yet again what the opposition viewpoints will be from the DBM,talking points and all.

I wonder if any of the Drivebys will recall that zeros trip was for a naught and that Chicago was thrown under the bus and quickly.Nawwwwww!!!

\C-Spam reached a new low today by allowing a rep. from al Jazerra to be on the program. Terrorist apologist. It was very revealing just how slick these terror types can be. But overall it was just another new low for Brian and the driveby gang over at C-Spam,IMHO.

Thanks for the ping, Alas.

It seems all four senators agree that sanctions need to be happening now or very soon. Talks/negotiations are “great”, but action is needed. Wow, we have bipartisan agreement!

Susan Rice is either lying or she is delusional.

She maintains that they have made great progress now that they have brought Russia and China aboard.

But they aren’t.

Actually the more the drivebys pull this biased BS the easier it is to expose them week after week.

I think what is going on this week is a lot of gerrymandering of the obamacare bill in the background with the overall socialist goal of passing something, just anything. Once they have a base for truly changing obamcare they can tweak it forever for the next few years until they get where they want to be.

IN truth, if anything at all is passed,as Glen Beck noted last week, we are screwed. They will morph any opening for nationalized health care into just that. They want 1/6 of the economy and want it bad. They will most anything to get it.

It's also noteworthy how our congressional congress critters have had so many ideas that are not even considered or thrown out immediately now that the socialists are in complete control. Hope we remember all that when it's our turn to run the ship.(If the ship has not sunk)
