Wallace is an utter POS. I wrote him an email lambasting him for his pathetic interview of MB. He’s just now admitting that he was hard on her because he f*cked up with Jon Stewart and said Fox tells the OTHER side instead of saying Fox tells the ‘whole’ story!!! OMG He just stated that’s why he was hard on her!!!! holy crap.
And for his info, stewart is basically saying wallace does a crappy job if we’re all ill informed!
[A bit of sexism there, Chris?] Yes indeed. That is one of the problems they have with Palin as well....IMHO.
Wallace did a pretty good slapdown of dumbass Jon Stewart at the end of the show.
“I predict the panelists will ignore Pella and pretend her visit is not happening and is of no consequence whatsover.”
Of course they will. When Tuesday rolls around they will descend on Pella like Locusts. The media is socialist in its orientation and sympathies, but is impelled, or driven, by a capitalistic engine called RATINGS. Sarah Palin has her foot on that pedal. If she touches it ever so slightly, the media, lamestream and otherwise, runs to her faster than lap dogs at the iditarod.
The Lametream media can keep up this charade, with the phony polls excluding her, as their own little way of “punishing” her. And when she shows up, they salivate on cue like a bunch of Pavlovian puppies. After she announces and telescopes the entire field, checkmating the lot of them(including the MSM), they will—to a man—claim that they knew all along that she was running.
What a pathetic bunch of losers the Establishment, their stalking horses and their media hounds are. Their “Bastille” is about to be breached, not by the Jacobins, but by the peasants with pitchforks embodied by the TEA party. These peasants are not a leaderless mob, however,which is the Establishment’s last, best hope to stop them. They are led by a 21st Century political equivalent of Napoleon, whom the Establishment has tired to destroy on numerous occasions but who has vanquished it repeatedly. As she now reaches for the levers of power, with which to decapitate it, drawing closer and closer to the Bastille, what is the Establishment’s strategy? To sit in Versailles eating bon bons, pretending it is not she, but one of the Establishment’s own agents, who will lead the peasant mob.
Can someone post this story?
Israel warns media over latest Gaza flotilla
Israel may ban journalists aboard planned aid flotilla for 10 years and also seize their equipment, official says.
Where would you have put those "surpluses" other than in interest bearing T-bills? SS is a pay as you go system. It is also a Ponzi scheme. The people at the bottom of the pyramid are paying for the benefits of those at the top.
SS is failing along with Medicare because they are structurally unsustainable. It really doesn't matter where the "surplus" went, but rather, that the numbers just don't work in terms of revenue and benefits. Together, both programs represent an unfunded liability of close to $60 trillion over a 75 year period. The welfare state doesn't work as we are seeing now in Greece and the rest of Europe.
Thanks Hoodat, That's a keeper and I'll add it to my arsenal!!
Thanks for that. Yes, he is. And I bet he's the only RAT that is. And I bet that grinds on him hard.
Why would you expect more from ABDNC? This was a campaign trip to remind all the Whiteguilted liberals to vote for the Black person.
Pray for America
Asking her about her gaffes...Are you a flake?
No Christy, she isn't, but "some are saying" that you are a misogynistic dirtbag.
The recent poll showing Bachmann catching Mitt Rino after one debate proves one thing, he ain’t getting the nomination. The people are looking for someone else who will hammer the golden boy. Palin is waiting in the weeds and in her case later is better.
There is such irony.
Christiane talking about Afghanistan.
She is not even a US citizen.
[That, in the light that the pRes_ _ent is an impostor
and the media, ABC in particular, covered up for him.
Why should America continue to obey their agenda.
I don’t usually watch MTP, wish the audio and video were not out of sync. It’s distracting, but I dunno if that’s NBC or my cable co.
I guess I don’t get why it’s strange that an Iowa poll is only including those who have declared. This isn’t a national poll. All the national polls I’ve seen, except for maybe the latest Rasmussen, have included Palin, Perry, Giuliani, etc.
Clearly Chris is trying to trip her up. And why am I not surprised he’s using gay marriage to do so.
what a horrible interview by Wallace. For anyone who thinks the MSM is in the tank for Bachmann, did Wallace ever ask Palin is she was flaky?
And I thought going on FNS would be better for her than MTP or This Week. Guess Wallace was trying to outdo David Gregory.
Just did a quick search on twitter and even people who don’t like Bachmann are outraged by that question.
You’re doing yeoman’s work explaining the situation with SS and Medicare over and over again. It’s an evil part of these systems that people are convinced they’re not what they are.
Wallace gets only a limited amount of time with Bachmann and he chooses to spend most of it on gay marriage. What a joke.
But there are too many gaffs to remember.
Er, Chris, there’s nothing wrong with Fox telling the other side. Pretty pathetic he used Michele Bachmann to try and prove he’s neutral. All he did was prove he’s a jerk.
I just e-mailed Fox and gave them an earful. I encouage others to do the same. AB has the e-mail addresses at top of thread. Denco
I like Chris Christie, but what does he mean when he says he won’t rule on 2016? Does that mean he thinks Obama is going to be re-elected? Or that he would run against the incumbent GOP president? I don’t get it.
Chris Cristie just mopped the floor with DavidG’s mophead. It should be a lesson on how to answer these bias mediaheads. It was great. Be sure to watch it.
Why ask a question about something you've already stated as stone fact?
Give 'em time, the pimp media will get around to their hatchet job on Bachmann.
Just don't come crying about how you weren't warned.
The really insidious part is that too many people seem to believe that we can make a few tweaks to the programs and keep them essentially the same. Or that somehow the programs were mismanaged rather than understanding that they, like the welfare state, are fatally flawed. It is impossible to fix them without fundamental changes and that is why the Democrat’s demogoging of the issue is so disgraceful.
Good Sunday morning to all. Instead of going to church this morning there are many...many...many in this neck of the woods this morning preparing to leave and walk from their homes cars and u-hauls packed and leaving without looking back.
Absolutely criminal and so, so sad but this a MAJOR CRISIS that is worsening unfortunately.
The neighborhoods are fast becoming drug and pimp zones and kids are displaced. Sad..Sad. Pray for all humanity.
It's called the Preen Room. (Originally built for John Edwards)
Guess I’ll watch the FOX/Bachmann interview with all the buzz on this thread.
Wallace asks what’s the diference between her and Romney. Bachmann - I’m a fighter, common sense goals, sincere. Wallace counters, “Are you saying Romney isn’t sincere?” Doesn’t answer.
Wallace accuses Bachmann of going after gov’t money counseling clinic $30k, farm partnerhip - $260 K, earmarks for state - $60M
Money went to clinic for training. The farm is her FIL’s farm. As far as earmarks - money was for roads. Has since taken an oath to take no more earmarks.
Wallace asks Bachmann about obamacare - $500 B taken away from Medicare, we will lose jobs, reduced choices. Wallace questions why vote for Ryan house budget that takes away similar money from Medicare. What’s the difference? - Unclear what her answer was.
Bachmann - marriage is between a man and a woman. States should set their own laws on this matter, but she also supports a federal constitutional amendment to ban it. Brings up obama not upholding the law by not choosing to defend the “Defense of Marriage Act”. She would support a constitutional amendment, but it’s a high hurdle to get accomplished.
Wallace asks about Romeny’s position on pro-life - she says it was disappointing that he didn’t take the opportunity to sign the Susan B. Anthony pledge (???) after claiming to be pro-life.
On Rick Perry - the more the merrier!
Ruh-Roh - here comes the “flake” comment. Are you flake? Wallace says that’s what the “rap” is in Washington about her. Bachman says that would be insulting.....brings up her record as justification that she is a serious candidate.
Wallace again asks do you agree that if you want to be taken seriously, it’s important to not say “flaky things”. Bachmann - well, of course.
WOW, anybody think Wallace would have gone after a male candidate using the word flake/flaky? I didn’t think so.
Unfortunately, Bachmann is a flake.
Whether or not he should have asked her, is another question.
She could have answered, “are you, Mr. Wallace, a misogynist pig?”
Kristol also threw a dig at Wallace about the Flake question.
Rush isn’t on tomorrow but I hope the talk show guys jump on this.
I’m still fuming.
“Common sense goals?” Is there a page in Bachmann’s book that’s not taken from Palin? I wonder if Palin’s ever had to run against her political doppleganger before.
Look I think the interview he did with Palin was much more respectful. No agenda in that interview. Wanted to give Palin the opportunity to give a good performance. The goal was different today as he admitted later on.
So as long as the state is paying her husband’s business for ‘training’ that’s okay?
I wonder if Mike Gallagher will discuss it. He usually has Chris Wallace on his show.
FOX panel time - on US role in Libya
Brit - message to the president (after this week) is he can keep on doing what’s doing, the house won’t stop him.
Kirsten Powers - public approval has dropped. obama will come back and say they got implicit approval because Congress didn’t cut off funds.
Kristol - unhappy about Republicans taking this stance on Libya.
Juan - Bill’s right. IF US doesn’t prevail now - it wold be calamitious. But, it is ALSO clear that obama is in violation with the War Powers Act.
LOL! Great analogy! Yelp, yelp, yelp!!!!!
FOX panel on Afghanistan speech/situtation.
Kristol - No guarantee of success, but obama shouldn’t overrule his commanders. The key to obama’s plan was that he plans on ending this in September, 2012. This was clearly a political move to enhance his chances to get reelected - that is indefensable.
Now that, folks, would have really put her on the map.
Please note that the new feature “Sunday Morning Bray” is not written by me, it is written by.... Bray...
Please address your replies to him, thanks.
To all: When addressing the Sunday Morning Bray simply change to To box from “Alas Babylon!” to “bray”.
I got kicked off the internet after my post. I was claiming that Gov. Christie is the modern version of ‘’Tony Soprano’s’’ Gary Cooper. Take it to them, watch the little guy and always stand up for what’s right.
Seems to me you pretty much “summed” it up.
For it’s no matter whether the funds are somehow authorized to be spent as collected....this is what the American public was sold and this is what they understand....
It’s why the Democrats, or at least partially why, they desperately do not want to affect social security in any way. With Medicare they’re a bit sneakier, robbing the fund because unlike expectations of a regular monthly check, folks only need Medicare oncit in a while.
This year the Part B Medicare co-pay went up $12.00 a year, to my surprise. However, this sort of thing is shrugged off. Take away that monthly check, even with means testing-a communist notion....and they’ll be out in the streets with their rage.
The Democrats, and on some level the Repubs, do not want to have the entire SS population stop in their tracks and ask WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO OUR MONEY??
Nevermind long complicated posts by Freerepublic posters, it’s the bill we were sold at a time in our lives when we were busy working all kinds of hours, raising our kids and, I add softly, it’s not like we had a lot of choice.
At some point a lot of us took advantage of one of the better laws pushed by the GOP, that of the 401K/IRA. So we’ve got years of these sorts of savings in our experience and most retirees, comes time to collect on this money, were NOT told by the holders “sorry, we spent it all.”
We thought the money was being saved, it’s how it was sold to us, and it turned out a lot like giving home mortgages to Crystal and her pimp, the POLITICIANS messed it up.
This is what the American public understands and screeds about how they had a right to spend the money are not going to change the sentiment.
By the way, I agree with you. Especially the last sentence!
Face it folks, Mitt Romney is “yesterday’s” wannabe!!! All the money and liberal backing in the world is not going to get him the Republican POTUS nominee slot. Ditto for Huntsman, an Obama flapper. There is much more yet to come. Heed not a word the Obama media spins out. They don not have a clue!!!
FOX panel on the budget
Brit - Impasse was inevitable. If it were left to the democrats, they would do it all with tax increases.
Kirsten Powers - dems want to cut tax loops holes for things people aren’t sympathetic with (corporate jets, etc.)
Kristol - tells Wallace, “You can call me a flake if you want.” lol
Juan global economic recession could be precipitated if we don’t raise the debt limit. Past presidents have raised the debt limit. Brit reminds Juan that past presidents raising the debt is different because we were not anywhere close to this level of debt.
Brit - warns that administration will send out warning letters that certain programs will be shut down. - military pay, SS, etc. Republicans won’t be able to withstand the blowback from furiuos voters. Juan thinks that would be deplorable, it would never happen.
