“Does anyone but the media folk like Michelle....Shes always angry looking....”
I always thought that she looks as if she belongs in a roller derby. There’s nothing genteel about Michelle.
Yes, I’ve read a bit about Scott; however, I’ve read about his pick for Lt Gov and she sounds great!
That is the perfect description of Michelle.
LOL. That’s perfect.
Is ‘wall street’ anticipating a Republican win in November? My thinking is that is why the market has gone up this week, on all the talk, considering the talk of taking the Senate too
The rumor of Bloomberg replacing Geithner was supposed to have been a boost as well.
How to spend a billion bucks and get nothing for it. or better yet how to buy a billion bucks worth of votes while tanking the economy in the process.
Meanwhile, over on CNN the topic of the day is tax cuts for the rich. Just because Axel/Plouffe think they have a winner because it polls well does not avoid the fact that tax cuts for the "wealthy" are an absolute must to come out of a recession. If that's what you really want.Of course the left does not want anyone creating anything but big govt.
Tax cuts for the rich provide working capital for small business and other "rich" people who after buying their champagne go out and hire millions.
The left knows all that and the only reason they continue with the facade is that they want govt. to provide all jobs health care,autos,energy, for everyone.They don't need no stinking free enterprise.
Its called communism/socialism in case any one is wondering.
Blair’s a socialist.
We have been stuck in the 88-83 zone for 4 months and it gets old.
The other day i got up at 3 am to go to work early and it was 86 degrees!! Like an oven when you walk out the door with humidity at 2,000 per cent.
Excellent "b!+ch on wheels" reference...
Awaiting photoshop...Anyone? Beuller?
I missed most of the last few weeks due to work load.
Darn I gotta go see some chick flick with the real boss in a few minutes,never a break.
so I am learning.
Now I’m gonna spew that new drink Cherry Pepsi all over the keyboard. Michelle mah belle and roller derby is just tooo good!!!
I don’t know about Wall Street but certainly there is a mood of optimism in the air. At least, there is here.
I think all of us are hearing similar comments by GOP candidates. Stopping the upcoming healthcare debacle, no to tax & trade or union card check, etc. Also entering is talk of making the Bush tax cuts permanent. Some of the better candidates are including lowering business capital gains taxes to help small businesses.
No matter what the Dems say, or claim, the proof facing everyone is high unemployment. I don’t know anyone who isn’t either unemployed themselves or who does not know someone who is unemployed.
Seniors too. Their normal COLA has been suspended for three years and every tick of rising costs is killing them if they don’t have substantive outside income. 0 and congress get fat raises, their supporters all get goodies and seniors are left to suffer. Add the loss of Medicare Advantage and seniors as a group are really unhappy. Nothing any Democrat can say overcomes that, which is why they try to change the conversation when it’s brought up.
Great analogy right on track.
You know that billion should have read “trillion” now that I think about it. Don’t get old,it always sucks.
Hi! I am just now checking in. I went to early mass and then to my sister’s for coffee.
Looks like I didn’t miss much, except I did see some rumblings elsewhere that Thomas Friedman was being sort of critical of Obama. I got on here and didn’t see anything, so maybe no one saw him or maybe it was wishful thinking.
I don’t know what to think about the Delaware race. Fishtalk has made a good argument for O’Donnell, and elsewhere I have see some criticism of her by conservative sites that normally would back someone like her.
Therefore, I am keeping my head down and not taking sides, since I figure Delaware will get it all sorted out without any input from me.
Welcome and good morning!
Friedman was like a husband or wife who knows their spouse is wrong but has to say loving words to keep peace in the family. So it was basically criticism followed by excuses and reasons why it is what it is. Add Krugman to the panel and it was a mutual admiration society meeting.
GOOD to hear from you! I’m for Christine because I’m against the fossil House incumbent Mike Castle who will reliably vote with the Senate Republicans 50% of the time, like a typical Northeasterner. Chris Christie endorsed Castle, which I found a little surprising, primarily because he called him a conservative! Oy vey!
Democrats create trillions of dollars out of thin air to pay their donors and supporters but cannot seem to find the few billions needed to support seniors, many of whom are on fixed incomes.
No wonder progressives and the Dems think everything’s okay. When we drive past them we’re laughing our heads off seeing their 0 bumper stickers.
In less than a month folks with Medicare Advantage (including yours truly) will get the notices as to the availability of the program next year, including premium increases and/or benefit cuts, or cancellations. THEN we will hear what seniors really feel about Obamacare.
Many seniors have been told. They don’t believe it or they think it will happen to everyone else but not themselves.
The official plan info goes out on 10-1-2010. Reality will set in pretty quickly.
The heavy rains are on the East side of the hurricane. Y’all were on the West, which usually has less rain unless it’s real close.
Down here in the Alabama, when Ia hurricane hits Mississippi, Louisiana or East Texas we get lots of rain, but if it curls up East of us through Georgia then forget it. Then again, a direct hit (Opal, Ivan, Georges) means lots of rain and wind, tornadoes, trees down, no power—forget it! Not worth it then.
Of course, as socialists go he’s at least better than Gordon Brown. (Or is he—as Brown was rather spectacularly ineffective?)
Uh oh, Zandi said all the Bush tax cuts should remain as this is no time to raise taxes on anyone.
Guess that will be the last he’s invited on any shows.
After what went on on Friday, I'm just glad FR is up and running!
But yeah, the clock is too fast.
“Dionne and the other libtard gal can only sit by and offer their lame hopey/changey mantras that have long been rejected; i.e., my words, trust in obama is gone, baby, gone.”
Dionne (he of no front teeth) said that Dems had nothing they could ATTACK Republicans on. Perhaps they should concentrate on discussing issues instead of attacking the Republican candidates.
“Wish they would fix the FR clock, which is about 5 minutes fast.”
“Plouffe Im not an economist[says all you need to know about this fool and the host, why talk economics?]
Plouffe 80% of the people Republicans want to give tax cuts to are millionaires
Ask him if he ever got a job from someone who pays no taxes. In fact, ask him if he ever had a job!
Sounds like we didn’t miss too much.
I apply for medicare over the next few months an I was told that the best of the supplements can cost up to a grand a month!! that’s more than I was paying for health care!!!
You gotta wonder what it takes for these clowns in higher office to learn from everyone else’s past mistakes!!
Nope. The great benefit of FR and our Sunday thread is how many people catch things here and comment on them. I learn something new every week.
Thanks for the additional info!
You should put 0bama down as the person responsible for any co-pay or financial responsibility on the Medicare form.
Hey! It’s HIS idea anyway.
Those are supplemental Medicare policies, not Medicare Advantage. I know that Dade County is in the special exemption area and gets to keep Medicare Advantage unchanged. Do not know about Monroe.
Yeah its like grad school for patriots.
I can’t! I don’t know if its his real name or not.....
We usually get screwed on everything down here since it supposed to be a govt. park anyway.
Oh I hope O nominates Bloomberg. Then NYC should be rid of him and some Republican on the Senate committee that passes on his nomination will go into Bloomberg's financial dealings in the Middle East. Way to expose that POS.
Can’t respond. It’s too painful.
You gave a great summary of Blair on #228! He was also one of the three main “Third Way” boys, the other two being Clinton and Germany’s Gerhard Schroeder who, after Angela Merkel finally knocked him out, hooked up with Vladimir Putin in Putin’s conversion to the Third Way...
You know the libbies are in panic mode when Liasson and Williams drop all pretense of being “fair and balanced” as they did today...tag team defending and explaining pResident Baraq.
