O'Reilly is doing what he does best. Calling out evil for what it is.

Sorry, but I don't buy your premise. You think that it will take a President to become the standard bearer of the Conservative movement (yes, I realize--it's not McCain).

Realize this: WE are the standard bearers. When the conservatives in this country realize that, get heard, fight for our principles and don't sit back (and whine and whine), only THEN will be we gain some traction. So we have to start from scratch...deal with it.

Don't know about you guys, but I am not giving up..and not expecting a POTUS to do my job. Hey, I feel sick that Tony is gone, but I don't think he would approve of the attitude that we just sit by and watch and do nothing.

Huckabee on Hannity and Colmes tonight along with Dick Morris.

Methinks there’s no chance in hell the Huckster will get the VP nod.

The fact that he took the Fox job shows that even he doesn’t think he has a chance.

Colmes just asked Huckabee if he would have liked to have that magazine cover about him.

Huckabee goes “My campaign was so obscure I would have loved the attention”

lol

As far as my limited ability to comprehend can tell, you’re not really disagreeing with me at all. But I would like you to let me know how I can submit nominees for the Supreme Court openings that will undoubtedly be coming in the next four years.
I’ve been around a few minutes and was introduced to and shook the hand of Ronald Reagan back in ‘76. I don’t need a lecture on how to be a conservative.

O’Reilly had a great show tonight, The parts that remembered Tony Snow were very nice and Bill conducted himself well admiring Tony.

I find myself personally incapable of chuckling at the horror show that the left has become.

They damage our country, our discourse, and create an ugly dangerous environment for our children.

There is a short distance between verbal violence and actual physical violence these days.

This is the path we are on, whether one chooses to acknowledge it or not.

This is a stupid thread unless your are willing to provide some context for your brief observation.

I’ve been working all day, so I have no idea what insult you are referring to. Since the thead is about something O’Reilly is saying, it is too late for me to watch and find out.

So...

Fill us in and provide some context, or post your pointless observation on a thread as a reply. This isn’t really deserving of its own thread in my not-so-humble opinion!

That is the Bluefish Memo for the day.

Past, I'm not saying you're not conservative. I am saying that I don't think it helps to denigrate McCain when that is what we have to chose from (or the Marxist). I wish we had a better choice, but we don't. And I will not be a party of handing the office of the President over to Obama because McCain isn't our conservative standard bearer. What I mean is that WE have to carry the load until we can put in place a real conservative in leadership position.

PS-I would rather McCain nominate our SC judges and not The Other

This is the same guy who called free republic a hate group...

And I disagree with him on that.

But overall Mr. O’Reilly conducts his show properly and lays it on the line when it needs to be laid on the line.

And all I’m saying is that unless he gets his fingers out of his rump and stops worrying about how he might offend somebody and quits pandering, there’s going to be no chance of his getting elected. There will be no Zell Miller speech this year and he will go down in flames (and the Supreme Court along with him) unless some miracle happens.

I’m watching his interview on Greta and it’s not looking good.

Not his answers per se.. but I can’t hear Mccain.

Foxnews doesn’t have Mccain mic’d up. It sounds terrible.. just a bad place for an interview.

English 101 from time immemorial.....who, what, why, where and when as close to the top of the article or posting as possible.

Stick your knuckles out and then go sit in the corner for an hour and eat worms.

I try and watch O’Reilly every night.

Do you usually watch him?

That's what Big Journalism would like you to think. It's not "from time immemorial," it's from the Civil War era. Journalism as we know it scarcely existed before the advent (1848) of the Associated Press. In the Founding Era the newspapers were all a lot like the ones sponsored by Hamilton and Jefferson in which they waged partisan battles with each other. Papers were about the perspective of their printers. They were usually weeklies, and some didn't even have deadlines at all.

But that doesn't mean that modern papers are less tendentious than those of the antebellum era; it means that modern newspapers have a lot of their tendentiousness hiding in plain sight. The planted axiom of journalism is that there is always a reason to meet the deadline. And there always is - but that reason has to do not with virtue or public good but rather the mere commercial interest of the printer.

Likewise, there is a reason for the position journalists take that all journalists are objective. That reason has nothing to do with the actual virtue of the least virtuous journalist - and everything to do with the fact that, through the mediation of the Associated Press, all "objective" journalists are in cahoots. In contradistinction to the newspaper of the founding era, the business model of the modern newspaper requires the printing of fresh news from a source to which the public is not privy - the AP. Thus, the business model of the modern newspaper requires that the public place its trust not merely in that newspaper's own reporters but in reporters working for other Associated Press newspapers nationwide.

I stopped watching CSPAN over a year ago, but some of the hatred direced at our President had me worried sick.

Afraid that someone would decide to do harm to him or Vice President Cheney.
