Thanks but the credit goes to a great bunch of regulars who try to stay on topic and are probably the most civil of all FReepers!
Some great FReepers no longer post on Free Republic due to all the animosity and fighting... Others only post here because we try to avoid that. We’re not lockstep; rationale arguments are welcome!
Do you know who’s filling in for Zakaria?
Gibbs is a Serial Lier, and continues to lie, lie, lie, over and over again, and again.
Isn’t that the way democrats say it?
I gotta admit, the exchange between Wallace and Gibbs is Must See TV.
They covered many topics including gaffe-machine Bite-me’s racal remarks, the lack of interviews with the WH press corpse, Gibbs calls Trump the “Birther-in-Chief” “right-wing-nutjob”
Wallace interrupts filibustering Gibbs by saying, “I get to ask the questions here”
Wish I had Tivo, but I’ll watch it again later on Roku.
Now Gillespie up...
Old Hillary can’t plug all the holes in a sinking ship. Our foreign policies and relations with other countries is a horrible failure. Contrary to what Democrats would wish we believed. Ex Ambassador John Bolton exposes them in a weekly basis.
Gregory is earning his Dem paycheck. He is editorializing his questions to McDonnell. He is carrying the water for Obama. He might even have earned a bonus for this morning. All he needs, to make it official, is an Obama button on his lapel.
So I hold up my figurative hand in pause....
...now I do not want to fight with you but your comment has hit a nerve in me.
Cause hey, much as I like Romney and Ryan, they are politicians. These politicians promise not to change Medicare for those over 55 and I’ll be honest here...at least for now I’d rather not have my Medicare messed with.
We do have access to Medicare Advantage plans here in Delaware though no more, of course. But I have sat down and scrolled through the offerings and was amazed at how much a plan the private sector could provide.
So I’m a little clued in on how the Ryan plan would work and I do think it will work fine.
Basically, if I may sum it up....the Ryan plan is a fight for moving health care from gubmint and politico control back to the individual and the private sector. That’s the gist of what the debate is, as I opine.
However, there is a whole congress up there in DC and I saw how they rammed through that obamination of a health care plan without a single Republican vote.
Am I to believe they wouldn’t block the Ryan plan, that they wouldn’t sabatage his plan to do exactly what he promised NOT to do, ie to force any changes on EVERYONE?
Goodness, I know it’s hard to believe the libs/Dems would do such a thing just to be mean or for political gain....but really, should I believe Ryan’s promise not to change it for those of us already on Medicare?
It might not come down that way even through no fault of Ryan or Romney.
Yes, I’ve been wondering about that.
Soledad O'Brien has hers on her forehead.
Did I mention that his lips were moving?
She's such a liar!
I had no idea but I believe it. I guess it makes sense in a way for the government to try helping create the illusion of success in light of its failure. It will all be exposed as the government runs out of our money or can’t borrow or print more.
Hmmmm. And yet, The 0 has got that "snake oil trickle-down economy" schtick going on a continuous loop, while parts of their pimp media are still trying to get some legs under the Romney-Tax-Return thingy.
Desperation, confusion or just still trying to come up with a consistent theme that doesn't insult the voters' intelligence?
JMHO, The 0's campaign is All Of The Above right now, and every lib within sight and sound can already sense the coming debacle. Wandered around the booths at the Fair the other night, passed by the "D" booth and almost ROFLMAO after noting that with signs, signs everywhere,
....except for the ANTI Obama stickers on the bumper of practically every pickup in the parking lot outside.
Drop BIDEN? Shoot, I'd guess there are a whole bunch of dims up for re-election right now who fervently pray that the whole top of their ticket would just take the hint and go away, and the sooner the better.
(They've got enough troubles of their own trying to run with the record of the past five or six years hanging around their necks....)
Gibbs is one of the worst spokesmen on the planet. Talking about Bobo Biden only underlines which one is the dumbest. Putting y’all in chains wasn’t race baiting even when he changes the dialect into Black speech. Who does he think he’s fooling?
Pray for America
Peggy Noonan is falling all over herself about Ryan..glad you came back Peggy.ha.
Exactly, we have 10,000 yuppies a day retiring and going on SS.That should ring a few bells for someone. Waiting until its too late is poor planning. Its what our congress is famous for.Time to stop the madness and plan ahead a little.
I do wish I could post more but none of the Sunday shows come on here in Denver early enough for me to post in a timely manner.
The information I get from other Freepers is great because it shows me which programs to watch and what comments to watch for.
The liberals are getting their taking points and flooding Twitter (hashtag #medicare)
In the Good Old Days, Nazi Pelosi would have been committed by her concerned family. She then would happily have passed her days sitting on the benches in the sun unscrewing the wood bolts with her fingernails and eating them.
