I want to hear why 33 senators have had their names block and hidden regarding the cCountrywide/Mozilo scam? Heard about this yesterday on Fox. This is a huge scandal and congress is hiding thier names till after the election!
David Gregory was already on Twitter this morning touting Steele’s appearance on his show. Of course, he accompanied this with a link to a long article about how steele isn’t getting respect and the dissension in the GOP.
Gregory will try to sow more dissension today on his show. I told him on Twitter I knew what he was up to.
My recommendation on this is to IGNORE whatever is said. Steele will probably be goaded into making a gaffe. IGNORE IT AND PRESS ON.
Rove will only be asked about Christine O’Donnell, in the hopes that it will get everyone mad at him again and that the moderate Republicans will be resentful that their guy isn’t on the ballot in Delaware.
This week it’s all about depressing the GOP vote and sowing dissension. Every show will have a twist on this. Do not fall for it. If our people make gaffes or say something that makes you mad, PLEASE let it go until after the election.
Pretty tame lineup of guests going into the last full week of the campaign season.
The last news I saw about Mozilo/Countrywide was a week ago. Do you have a link to anything more recent?
I caught this discusion on Fox yesterday afternoon. sorry
Look also for stories about Democrats "surging" and predictions that their losses on election day won't be too bad. The same story lines dominated the MSM in the days leading up to election day in 1994.
I see Christianne and ABC are going the one-way route with two liberals on air. Shelton was one of the most disappointing Chairman of the Joint Chiefs ever.
I was glad to read that her colleagues on ABC are none-too-thrilled with her hiring. I’m still waiting for ABC sunday talk show to hit the bottom of the ratings pile. I don’t think it will be too much longer before she falls into third place behind NBC and CBS.
Happy Sunday, FRiends! Our friend Juan will be featured on FNS, Chris Wallace tells the Friends.
Broken glass Conservative here, Miss!
Good advice, though!
You are right on! That`s the only reason they have Rove on, and that`s to bash COD.
Rove,Charles K and the like are tools for the Dems
Good morning everyone. Thank you for ping AB
as usual I wont be here to watch the programs but will read your input later.. Always good insight shared on this thread.
Countdown a week plus.
That was hands down the top news story of this past week and I bet it receives only a brief mention on any of the Sunday shows with the exception of Fox.
***If our people make gaffes or say something that makes you mad, PLEASE let it go until after the election.***
Well said - we are eating our own every day - which is not helpful.
“The Final countdown to Decision 2010: As a tough and contentious election season comes to a head, we break down all the big contests and debate all the big issues, just nine days before Americans head to the polls. Our political roundtable covers all the angles: David Brooks of The New York Times; E.J. Dionne of The Washington Post; Chair of the Democratic Leadership Council Fmr. Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (D-TN); Rachel Maddow, the host of msnbc’s “The Rachel Maddow Show”; and CNBCs On-Air Editor, Rick Santelli.”
Brooks is a tepid, milque toast RINO, Dionne & Maddow are barking moonbats, Ford will defend his democrats over any logic or truth. Expect Santelli to be broadsided by all the others, including Gregory.
That’s been the story of Michael Steele for the last year. We’ve made it this far and we can suck it up for another 10 days—but I really, really, really want to see him retired in January.
That was exactly my thought re: Rove and the COD catnip. Let’s hope he can keep himself in check.
Chris Wallace just told the Friends that Sestak took away Toomey’s huge lead by tying him with COD...whatever. Speaking of GOP gals, anyone know how Michele Bachmann’s race is going?
This is the ratio the MSM considers "balanced".
I expect Howie will discuss it on (un)reliable sources. Other than that, the lamestreamers recognize that NPR stepped over the line, so it probably won’t get much discussion on the talk shows. We’ll see.
The story isn’t going to go away soon or at least until Ms. Schiller is fired as the CEO of NPR. NPR has zero credibility at this point because of this, they had almost none prior, but given that Nina, Cokie, et al, are still allowed to spew their opinions all over the net (anywhere but Fox that is), NPR doesn’t have a leg to stand on.
Will Maura be on the panel today, or has NPR shut her up through their outrageous intimidation?
Oh Good we get to see Marco bury the clown posse one more time. He's taken these idiots out so many times it must get boring after a while. And its the same ol’ dribble every time.
Remember we have a corrupt congress majority and administration so you can expect anything.
And while the party of no has to worry about that, the dems can continue to brag about their accomplishments; Obamacare, Cap And Tax, 1099's, and "John Edwards must be straight".
I think NPR has been blind sided from the heat they've taken over the Williams firing that they may let Maura do what she wants...at least until the head dies down.
Great post MM. Steele is still viable until Nov. 3. After that we have to figure out a way for Sarah to stop propping him up.
Correct. If the MSM sees this as a way to bash Fox they'll be all over it.
“If our people make gaffes or say something that makes you mad, PLEASE let it go until after the election.”
My gut tells me that taking your advice is the smart thing to do.
Rove had already lost half of FR before Christine O'Donnell and after her he lost the other half.
^^^Our political roundtable covers all the angles:^^^
It is just amazing that someone could write that sentence for publication. I guess that including Santelli on the panel means that they have great “forebearance of the other” at NBC, and they are so very “tolerant”, which confirms that they are “good people.”
What I watch the last ten days are the gyrations of the polls. Those poling operations who don't want to seem like out right shills for the left usually try and get the true vote out there somewhere between 72 and 24 hours out. The rest are perfectly willing to go down in flames for Barry and the other Marxists.
Curiously missing...Axlerod; hmmmmm...not a good sign for Dems.
My Rove theory, for what it’s worth.
George Bush is a very humble man. He fails to realize that he has a magnetic personality and is therefore an exceptional candidate. When he won in the governor’s race, he attributed it to Rove’s wonky theories and demographics counting. So he signed him on for the presidential race, which of course, he won twice.
I think the Delaware race was the first race that Rove was advising on without any back-up from bush as a candidate. I think without that charismatic candidate, he isn’t really that much of a genius.
He backed the moderate in delaware, using his charts and such. And he was wrong. You could see the desperation, when he called in Dad Bush for an endorsement. (Do you EVER remember Dad Bush endorsing someone in a primary? I don’t.)
Castle was to be Rove’s debut on his own, and he flopped. That is why he is so bitter. So let’s just ignore any outburst he has today and realize it is his effort to prove that he still knows politics. We do not need to kick him when he’s down.
The Dems will be on next Sunday, two days before the election.
Unfortunately, Karl Rove was right about O’Donnell. Oh well.
The only one worth listening to in that pathetic group on MTP is of course Mr. Tea Party originator himself Rick Santelli!! You can be sure he will get at least 8 seconds to say whatever he wants.
You know I wonder if it’s dawned on Santelli that his name is going to be forever linked with this movement in the history books.
If Rove does fall into the ODonnell trap, he runs the risk of not being the "Architect" anymore. It's not like NPR is going to invite him to replace Juan Williams, and if he loses the Fox gig, he's got noplace to go.
Many of us see Michelle Bachman as Palin II. She's got no where to go but right to the top along with Sarah.
After observing in the neighboring state of PA, the six years of RNC backed Specter in the Senate, the Delaware primary voters sent a message to the GOP Elites. We do not want any more pseudo Republicans to represent us.
i like to turn it on....and then immediately turn it off...HA!
wonder how the ratings score that???Hee.
