GOP candidates of the conservative stripe need to learn from Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, John Kasich, Rick Scott, Nikki Haley, Kelly Ayotte, Haley barbour etc who are all smart politicians and WINNERS.
Their “offices” are “news vans” parked in parking lots.
Rush is playing the tape now!
The next president is going to inherit a mess of unimaginable proportions. If it's Obama, he and the media will blame Bush. If it's Romney, the press will blame him and his policies until the people BEG for Hillary to take his place in 2016.
Rush needs to check with WMAL in DC (WMAL carries his program 12-3). Chris Plante, who’s on from 9-12 had the audio up and running within minutes of Romney finishing his remarks. I don’t know if it was the keen ears of his producer that heard it or what, but he had it up within minutes....
From government schools to the media they’re trying to hold our minds behind an iron curtain of information.
Looks like Romney has an out for calling on CBS ever. If they whine he can just tell them he assumed they had coordinated their questions with other reporters so “they’re covered.”
The next president will have to deal with a financial and economic system collapse.
I’d much rather it was a nominal “Christian” who actually likes America
than an anti-American Marxist Muslim.
Me either. R/R CANNOT play nice with these folks. The gloves MUST come off. Hopefully, this will convince them of that, but I won't bet on it.
No. Obama hasn’t told them yet.
I have been listening to talk radio for over 20 years, and NOBODY can touch Chris Plante. He is the BEST. Mark Steyn is a close second.
It is truly a Soviet style election. And, Fox News is hiring more libelals......

Haha! Well done! Would love to see it!
Romney or Preibus or somebody should jump on this and demand a change in the “moderators” for the debates.
Even on my father's old tapes back during the Mercury and Apollo days, you can hear coordination between reporters as to questions to be asked.
Oh... no matter what, there will always be a need for TALKING HEADS.
Or Romney could turn the tables and ask a pressie “Is this an original question or is it one the press pool decided on?”
I'd look for him to divorce Moochelle, somewhere towards the end of 2013 or so. BEFORE he gets his 10-million advance on his book, "My Life as the First Black President, Volume I".
Then he'll go on tour to do what he does best.... get paid 50G's a pop for reading a teleprompter to adoring sycophants.
You heard it here first.
And the GOP allows these people to moderate the debates. What can an ordinary citizen do to stop these moderators??? Where are the Republicans?
Thanks Army Air Corps
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Video up on youtube
Has it occurred to you that if Obama loses, he will be able to run again in 2016? I know it seems absurd to think about now, but if the economic collapse is as bad as I think it will be, a 2016 run is not outside the realm of possibility. Remember, the republicans will take all the blame for the collapse, and Obama can ride in on his white horse as a savior again and finish the job of destroying America.
cbs phoenix reporter coordinates with obama lawyer...
Send to O’Reilly. Generally, he’s an idiot, but a useful one since he has the largest viewership. If he covered this story (maybe in the spot he does with Bernie Goldberg) more people would hear it.
Re Drudge and Blaze; only political wonks go there, and it would be preaching to the choir. It needs to be covered on TV.
found this at weasel zippers
Here are the seven questions they asked:
1. Reporter brings up that Romney had a toughly worded statement last night, and asks, Do you regret the tone at all given what we know now?
2. Do you think, though, coming so soon after the events really had unfolded over night was appropriate, to be weighing in on this as this crisis was unfolding in real time? Follow-up: What did the White House do wrong then, Gov. Romney, if they put out a statement saying they disagreed with it?
3. The world is watching. Isnt this itself a mixed signal when you criticize the administration at a time that Americans are being killed? Shouldnt politics stop for this?
4. Some people have said that you jumped the gun a little bit in putting that statement out last night and that you should have waited until more details were available. Do you regret having that statement come out so early before we learned about all of the things that were happening?
5. If you had known last night that the ambassador had died, and obviously, Im gathering you did not know . . . if you had known that the ambassador had died, would you have issued such a strongly-issued statement?
6. Reporter comments that Romney is running on his economic know-how and private sector experience, and adds, but now that foreign policy and the situation in the Middle East has been thrust into the presidential campaign, can you talk about why specifically you think you are better qualified than President Obama to handle these issues?
7. How specifically, Governor Romney, would a President Romney have handled this situation differently than President Obama did? You spoke out before midnight, when all the facts werent known. How would you have handled this differently than the president did?
More like Volkischer Beobachter. But then, that was owned by Nazis, it didn't volunteer to support them free of charge.
In spite if the questions to Romney at the news conference, I came away with a different take. He was PRESIDENTIAL !!! He looked it, he spoke it, and when being ganged up on by the lib media, they didn’t lay a glove on him. I’m not his biggest fan, (I’m voting against Obama), but he impressed me. Obama later never dared to make a comment that wasn’t written down, answering questions, Romney was off the notes... He was GOOD!!!
Why would you undermine your real point with a sign like that? Or is it intended as a joke?
For the debates, the only logical setup would be for each candidate/participant to choose people to pose the questions. There’d be a good mix of questions. Some would be good/fair, and some would be terrible/fixed. This crap where every debate is being organized by the MSM is ridiculous. The GOP is full of so many idiots, they just slouch along and take the abuse. Dreadful.
They are desperate to make sure these attacks are not compared to the 1979 embassy attacks.
Both Ryan and Romney can handle the media.
One thing you cannot deny about Romney is that he is unflappable. Don’t think I have ever seen him angry. Maybe this crap will infuriate him.
“Romney was off the notes... He was GOOD!!!”
Yeah I gotta agree. I’m also not his biggest fan, but he did look very good answering questions off the cuff.
The names of every reporter in attendance should be published and they are all need to be fired immediately.
Signed, Every American Patriot.
There is no question that Mitt is prepared to be President unlike The Disaster.
Like you I am voting against The Disaster and have never been a fan of Romney for a lot of reasons but it cannot be doubted that he is very polished and looks the part. The Disaster looks like a pool boy in comparison even when wearing $1000 suit.
How is this F%$&ing LEGAL???????????
Why is this not a form of SEDITION??????? How???!!!!!
Especially when Romney doesn’t go after them over it.
That’s why I supported Cain and Newt early on. At least they would go after the media and call them out on it. How could the coverage get any worse? At least it might wake up a few folks.
Believe it or not the ignorant, idiotic masses actually understand the concept of liberal media bias. They may not always vote that way, but they DO understand. It's one reason that FOX (token liberals and all) has higher ratings than all the other 'nets combined.
Open mic shows press pool coordinating question if Romney regretted criticizing Obama on Egyptp4
Voice “No matter who he calls on, we’re covered on the one question”
” - - - CBS REPORTER: Im just trying to make sure that were just talking about, no matter who he calls on were covered on the one question.”
Thank you for this very revealing thread!
The Liberal Agenda Media, (LAM), clearly has an agenda. What is so interesting is their knee-jerk, reflexive response to defend their guy, Obama, when ever Romney puts Obama on the defensive.
IMHO, the LAM knows the hot-button weak positions that Obama has, and jump in quickly to defend Obama.
This could be another watershed issue in the Campaign of Romney. Hopefully he will continue to pursue it in the same stiff backbone manner that he has shown in the last 24 hours, as the last thing Romney needs to do is to back off once he has found a vulnerable Obama weak spot such as this example of Obama’s limp-wristed Foreign Policy.
The Arabs had their “Spring,” and now we have the LAM Fall. Can’t WAIT!
About what I would expect from the Communist Broadcasting System, But then they are almost ALL in the tank for the Kenyon Punk with Fox somewhat less socialist than the rest.
The media is NOT biased.
If you stupid racist, sexist, homophobic Teabaggers were smarter, you’d realize that.
