These guys are pros!

On This week without David or Stephy the DBM moderator's first question to Mitch McConnel is basically why did George Bush allow this?

Of course McConnel is slick enough not to fall for that and asks the mod why if this guy was on the terror watch list was he even allowed on the flight?,than it's time to change topics!! Let's go to obamacare!

Just make you wanna laugh or cry, hard to say which one.

Before that the final few minutes of Gibb's interview with the DBM moderator on on This Week Without Anyone Pertinent Hosting,revealed that Gibbs was told by Axelrod to smile a lot since it's the holidays and then change all questions to something you would "rather" answer,something you are more comfortable answering.

Nice work if you can get it.

White cat is turned around, standing up, surveying situation.

She is on a big branch in tree. Truth is, even if she fell from where she’s at I don’t think she’d hurt herself. Husband says she’s about 30 feet up the tree. There’s a real nice soft compost pile of dirt right below where she’s crouched.

It she makes it down to the crotch of that branch and the tree trunk she can probably jump. It’s pretty soft all around where she’s at.

I doubt we’ll go outside one day and see a cat skeleton hanging from the tree.

You see how the timeline of when he was recognized to be radical has blurred back to three years ago.

Yes, but in all that time he was never allowed to board an aircraft with an explosive devise strapped to his leg.

We don’t know if the PETN bomb was enough to bring down the plane.

***********************************************

Then she is an idiot because experts stated yesterday he was sitting right over the fuel tank and next to the skin of the airplane, if the fire had spread to that wall it would have spread to the fuel tank and everyone on board would have been toast......

Probably one of the most glaring omissions of obmacare is how the doctors were systematically omitted from much of the discussions.

It's as if they took over an automobile company and put in charge people that didn't know what they were doing.

( Uh oh yeah.....they did....)

Outstanding analysis of the GW hoax and the fallout that “should” happen after ClimateGate, bray. The folks that keep insisting “the arguement about GW is over” are merely the modern version of the “flat-earthers”.

Gregory refused to continue the discussion of big government and went to the next topic

That's why he is there. Deflection,omission,endless spinning,if we don't talk about it, it never happened,all tricks of the DBM left protecting their own.

Obama seems to put Muslim terrorists in the same category as a wild dog...he thinks he can tame them with kindness.... he doesn’t get that they are not just wild dogs, the AQ Terrorists are rabid wild dogs and have to be put down.

This administration began with such high hopes, such mighty adulation.

It dies by the death of a thousand cuts.

My New Year’s prediction, and I’m going out on a limb with that white cat here, is that the Old Media abandons the administration.

It’s getting tough to ignore millions marching right outside your door in DC. It’s tough to ignore the stupid bowing all over the world, the acts of terrorism obviously on the increase, the failure and embarrassment world wide, the passage of a law the public hates.

I’m serious. Everyone has a point. Oncit upon a time the Old Media swooned over Obama; he was the epitome of their guy, He Who Will Stop the Rising Seas. Now the man looks like a politically tone-deaf baffoon, which he is.

At some point we all have to stop being the butt of all jokes. The Old Media, unless something major earth shaking happens and another Muslim loser managing to get on an airplane with bombs in his underwear ain’t helping, is going to leave Obama and pray for another savior with some brains and no tin ears.

This is exceedingly weak on Bobby’s part. Ax will not be pleased.

Janet Napolitano's primary concern is to protect Muslims from prejudice.

Actually it's far worse than that.

Napolitano and all the other big wigs of the adm. have no qualms(in an increasingly arrogant manner as well) whatsoever in turning the tables on anyone they think is out of step with their agenda of destroy America all the time.

Anyone who dares suggest profiling or anything else that might jeopardize a voting/funding base,be it terror types or anyone else is quickly beaten down by the far left.

And make no mistake, the far left is who controls the country right now. They are brazen,unrelenting and bent on the destruction of a once great country.

Obama is that eunach cop from Demolition Man whose solution to violence is to speak with a firm tone and say “lie down.” ...and when that fails add “or else”.

We need to RIDICULE OBAMA.

Obama: Clueless in DC.

Bingo,very revealing since this is how the left handles everything.

Once caught in a huge screw up of their own doing they move on to the next issue as quickly as possible.

Being on the left means never having to say you are sorry.

This is exactly what my husband has said about the insurance for his 150+ employees. He’s as conservative as can be, but we know that the costs will only go up with new taxes,regs,and mandated benefits.

do you think it would have passed if the bypass was not already figured out? (think campaign finance reform)

Insurance accounting is more creative than their fine print.

Remember their monopoly exemption is intact.

Everyone HAS to by from them as a matter of law.

I can’t believe Gibbs said this.

This admin must think we were all born at night. Only they must know we weren’t all born LAST night.

We understand computers out here in la-la land. A lot of us, go with me here, regularly do searches across the wide of the Internet.

Yet we are going to sit and nod with understanding, hey, yeah right, the lists are too damn long. Like we believe some guy with a green eyeshade with a naked lightbulb has to scan the list every time an airline passenger wants to buy a ticket.

How you doing, AZ? I think of you.

It's a very interesting story as to how Franken go elected/selected as well.

Seems George Soros put-up $870,000 to buy the office of Sec. of State (using a little known law)for six states.

One was Minnesota.

In a close election the Sec. of State can easily sway an election which ever way they want. Guess which way Minn went?

Now we see just how important it was since Frankenstein is #60 which may mean obamacare, cap and tax,amnesty who knows what all.

ABC panel:

The entire round-table keeps trying to describe the expansion of terror represented by the new airplane bomber without using the phrase "Global War On Terror." Very clumsy.

The woman from the Washington Post talks about the health care bill and suggests that the Democrats need to campaign on something about Grandma getting her donut hole filled.

Matthew Dowd makes the comment of the week: Republicans will pick up 25 seats in the House and make the mistake of thinking that the gains represent a mandate for what they said during the election campaign.

The new moderator needs to take the telephone books off the seat of that chair he inherited from George. he looks too tall compared to the rest of the panel.

or pay the yearly fine — which is much cheaper — and then sign up for insurance when they get sick.. what a deal, eh... I’d take that bet... and it will drive up insurance costs for everyone since it is always more expensive once you get sick.

Then she [Napolitano] is an idiot......

Yes, she is. Her idea of the system working is to leave it up to the passengers to stop future attacks. The problem with that is, next time, the explosives might work, and passengers' interventions may not be possible.

Out of all of the dumb things said today, I nominate Napolitano for the prize.

In a situation where the “system” failed completely and the people had to take over to avert disaster, she insists the system is working.

You cannot fix stupid.

White cat still in tree. Dog is in bedroom taking nap so there’s no problem there. I’ll be going in about a half hour.

We’re thinking about the tuna fish idea but I don’t see the cat even knowing the tuna fish is there.

Still we keep it in our list. Garden hose...not for now. Maybe in desperation.

I think all American’s need to be aware of the SoS project..., but this also points out how dangerous third party candidates are to the republic... I wish people would get that rather than vote third party they actually need to get off the couch and go vote in their primaries and effect change at that level so they can vote for the best candidate in the general election.

I heard a very different number for people on the ‘watch list’ but, large as it is, I think airlines should be advised of everyone on it so that special attention should be given to those people.

Duh. Netflix can keep track of every thought I’ve ever had regarding movies and with sophisticated computer systems, it would not be impossible to check those cited people who are trying to board planes.

Instead they want to make flying even more difficult for the rest of us. And no blankets!

That was Jake Tapper on This Week/ABC. He's been the most level of the ABC crew, although he didn't sound it today, imho.

He's up for the job permanently and it would be good if he got it.

so far they (the admin) has been lucky that private citizens have stopped the two attacks that have taken place this year under this president (and we don’t know what brought down the plane between Brazil and France last summer, do we?).... of course, is there one person here who believes if that plane had crashed any of us would have been told it crashed due to an act of terrorism? My guess is nope...

Every week your posts are so brilliant and yet you have done it one more time.

This global warming scam is just that. One of the biggest cons ever in the history of mankind.

Sad truth is though it may take until 2012 to begin to undo all the blather that has resulted in reams of unneeded,nunneecesasry laws formulated by the enviro wacko movement.

Question is will we fall for the next "global warming scam" and will it be obamacare,amnesty or what?

Jake Tapper vascilates between trying to be a real journalist and an ABC hack. usually the hack wins out, I don’t believe he is that stupid and if he’d been on that plane he might actually have a come to Jesus moment of what he should have been reporting all along.
