The Talk Shows
August 12th, 2012
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.; Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Former Gov. Tim Pawlenty.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Stephanie Cutter, deputy Obama campaign manager; Eric Fehrnstrom, adviser to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign; former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Pawlenty, R-Minn.; David Axelrod, adviser to President Barack Obama's campaign.
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Axelrod; Ed Gillespie, Romney campaign adviser; Sen. John Thune, R-S.D.
But for Thune and Newt, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a less distinguished roster.
And you are correct about Paul Ryan. He understands how they think, who they really are and knows how to destroy them. There is a near four minute video of Ryan taking Tiny Tim apart if I can find it I will put it up. It's terrific. Any one that can gut Tiny Tim can blow right past O'Axel or Barry boy for that matter. O'Biden won't even be a challenge.
Celebration time come on! We have one of our own on the ticket which you must give Romney a lot of credit for doing. Paul Ryan is a Tea Party guy who is willing to take on the Turd Rail of politics and tell the truth about Social Security and Medicare. This is Mitt Romney taking the battle straight to the heart of the battle with no fear of the consequences. For someone who has been labeled Wimp Romney for not responding to the vicious attacks by the Chicago Machine he has forced the debate right on the last place they wanted it to be, the economy. The selection of Ryan highlights two weaknesses of the Ocommie campaign, his lack of economic understanding and BoBo Biden.
Romney can correct that blunder by taking Newt’s advice and serving Chick-Fil-A at the convention one night.
The pick of Ryan is truly outstanding. He is a real bridge between mainstream Republicans and the Tea Party Patriots, the two groups that can win the election going away merely by finding common ground and then GETTING OUT THE VOTE.
Please watch at least one of these, she’s actually read the bill;

Gregory seems actually giddy this morning that Ryan is the VP-selectee.
Romney apparently ‘asked’ Ryan last weekend.
Gregory to Priebus: Is this a game-changer.
Priebus: Yes, it is.
Gregory runs old Dem ad that Ryan wants to cut Medicare, kill seniors, steal their possessions.
[Gregory ignores the cuts Obamacare will impose on Medicare, seniors.]
Gregory keeps bringing up the Ryan Budget. [IIRC, the Dems have not PASSED a budget since Obama has been in office.]
Priebus brings up that Obamacare ‘steals’ $700 million from Medicare.
[Ryan as VP-selectee puts the onus back on economics, budget. Team Romney-Ryan need to avoid being distracted by the ‘shiny things’ [a.k.a., distractions] the Dems/Media are going to throw at them.]
DNC Dave saying Ryan wants to cut the social lifeline and change SS making it a voucher program. Reince does not fall for any of it and DNC Dave comes away frowning that he could not bulldoze Reince. Priebus did a stellar job and did it without looking abrasive.
His lips are moving, I have the sound off. But I can't stand to look at the festering POS any more than I can Obama.
Almost looking forward to Wash Rag.
Maybe there's something else on, or I can just stick with FR.
Thanks AB, it is a great choice and the press corpse is going hard after him as expected.
MTP is hammering hard but Scott Walker is answering well. The entire discussion is now Medicare and Obamacare which is exactly where you want it.
Why yes. He's feculent.
This clip needs to be played over and over to blunt the Dems .
They cut 2% off SS,4% for employers pretending to give taxpayers and employers a tax cut. What they did in reality was to gut the SS fund making it go bankrupt years earlier. And they also gutted potential income for those now paying into the fund since they will now pay less into the fund and get less in return. Slick move but few on our side talking about it.
Got to run to church.....looking forward to everyone taking notes on the Sunday roundups.
Judging Mitt from his time in Mass amongst the slime liberals may not be a very good gauge. Haven't I heard him support life quite strongly ? Yes. Energy and Obamacare pronouncements are still strong. Ryan supports all of the above.
We've seen Romney fight hard and dirty, which he'll need to do soon. Ryan's pick tells me this campaign will be about ideology as much as economics. Ryan's pick tells me they'll face the entitlement issue square on, finally. Romney is a fixer. I don't see him satisfied with sitting in the WH and not accomplishing anything.
Both Chairman Priebus and Gov Scott are very quotable in support of Ryan today. The meme floating around that dems are happy with the Ryan pick is a sign of their skewed vision of reality. The next few months are going to be fascinating.
Stephanie Cutter was suppose to be on ABC, but cancelled and Axelrod went instead.
Scott Walker is hitting dinger after dinger. Says they should not shy away because of the polls. Brilliant analysis of the current climate vs the status quo.
Now Axehead using the tired scare tactics they used in 08’. Keep using the old formula Axel.
Pray for America
