The Talk Shows
October 30th, 2011
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): 2012 GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): White House adviser David Plouffe.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): 2012 GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain.
THIS WEEK (ABC): 2012 GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann; Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates.
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): 2012 GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul; David Axelrod, adviser to President Obama's re-election campaign.
Brit Hume just stated that Romney used up his quota of flip-flops, people don’t trust him.
It seems Huntsman referred to him as a “well lubricated weather-vane on the issues.”
RP: Cut spending! [duh!]
You know, a few years ago, the federal government spent a lot less than it spends now, but the total revenue income is about the same. Yet the liberal media has accepted Obama spending levels as the new norm without question.
If the East Indians can read questions from a tech support script and tell my wife how to reboot her PC, they should be able to read press releases from politicians into a TV camera. Jeffrey Imelt could out-source NBC news reading just like jobs at GE.
Polls show Cain ahead.
[Romney was ahead. Bachmann was ahead. Perry was ahead. Polls are meaningless at this stage of the campaign, or else we would be addressing either President Rudy or President Hillary.]
Moron-wahn can’t understand Cain’s success.
I was dizzy after the first 2 minutes and switched to a rerun of L&O.
He talked so fast, I am left to wonder whether he's on meth.
I will watch the first half hour of FNS, and TIVO the remainder so I can see Herman Cain on FTN!
That refusal to take the bait, after 2 months of being hit by Romney, is a good demonstration of leadership material.
I remind you all that this guy flew for the Air Force. He has to be intelligent enough to have done that, plus hotheads who are pilots usually don’t survive.
My top two candidates are Cain and Perry. They would make a good team.
Newt has partially redeemed himself, but I remember his double-throwing of Bush under the bus on Fox in two related but separate interviews over Katrina. That alone makes me leary of him.
Juan gets the Cain and mentions the Establishment not getting it. Brit just sits silent.
Thanks! Mrs. BB1 saw your post and she said, back atcha! Miss ya...
It seems like the world has forgotten that BlackWater is the peace dividend Love Child of Bill and Hillary when they reduced the size of our standing army from 1.7 million to 1.1 million. Oh, sorry, does that require long-term media memory skills that have not been diluted by mary-g-juana and Doritos?
The notable aspect of William's soliloquy today: Juan was all kinds of pumped up talking about Herman Cain's popularity. He even described the "smoking" Cain video going viral because people don't want the government telling them what to do.
Brit Hume was nearly reclining in his chair with his hand in his chin when Juan finally wound down.
This was a keeper.
Herman Cian wants to raise my taxes by orders of magnitude. Of course, I realize he could win a 49-state landslide and still NEVER get his 9-9-9 thing passed. Still...
Has Cain proposed any SPENDING CUTS?
Why do all these “conservatives” have a “tax plan” and only screwball Ron Paul actually proposes massive SPENDING CUTS?
What happened to the Repukes? In the past, they used to at least LIE about wanting to cut spending—like Boehner does. Now, it’s all tax hikes with this bunch.
Bernard, the press has the collective memory of a gnat plus they insult us by thinking we are dim bulbs as well.
And they have no shame.
I think there needs to be a site called “collectivehistoricalmemory.com” which would remind people of pertinent historical facts whenever any of these media/democrat/moderate types pronounce some assertion.
It would be a full-time job just refuting Obama’s statements.
Reagan cut more then any other President and all the spending came right back. Spending cuts by themselves do not structurally change the system. Our tax system is structure to reward the takers and punish the givers.
As long as you allow the takers a free ride, they will always vote for those politicans promising to make other people pay for their gimmies.
Spending cuts without tax code reform are putting the cart before the horse.
I believe Cain has talked about completely abolishing the EPA and starting over with a very small group of pro-business scientists.
That there would cut a bazillion dollars out of federal (and state) budgets due to not having to file compliance reports and have people reviewing them.
"DESPERATE FOR TRACTION"
While never ever answering any of DNC Dave's questions with a straight answer in true dem style, Plouffe was just loaded with stalking points some even new.
Here they are in order:
1.--Cut taxes for the Middle class--This is a slick maneuver in addition to playing the class warfare card which is their biggest hope its all Plouffe talked about. It is designed to put rich against poor and also keep the chaos going since they know without everyone contributing to the massive debt "they created" is no way only the rich can solve our problems. But, it polls well. It's a slick commie maneuver, IMHO.
2.Infrastructure spending--here they want high paying union jobs funded by govt. and spread out to unions--another slick technique not to help the country but to foment revolution and Socialism. It's what they are all about.
3.Have the wealthy pay more so we can put the middle class back to work--more of the same unions, class warfare, promote socialism/communism Plouffe repeats the class warfare theme so much you wonder why they would play it so hard.it's all polling with the regime you can be sure.
4.American jobs act--pass the bill--of course it doesn't exist, it's not about jobs and even the dems don't want it. But, they invested a lot of teleprompter time in pass the bill BS so they have to keep it moving especially since the DBM promoted it so heavily.
5.DNC Dave played a McConnell cut about how the dems got everything they wanted but nothing is working. How come?--Here DNC Dave is desperately trying to head off a Limbaugh score early in the week exploding the do nothing dems for what they are; losers. Plouffe answers that we are obstructionists, rather than the principled opposition.
6.Infrastructure spending can create jobs--never the first word about how we are BROKE !!!They never ever go there since they know its really what its all about and they have no answers or solutions only make it worse.
7.Middle class values--a new Dem chatting point-they could only wish they did!!
8. We signed into law two trillion in new tax cuts--sounds great but will it stand up to reality/I doubt it.
9.More taxes on millionaires and bilionaires--more of the same class warfare pap.
10.DNC Dave will you cooperate in the Solyndra investigation--Plouffe--pubbies should stop investigating and start passing what we want--can't answer since its ongoing investigation--they know they are screwed with solyndra.
Not a word about gunwalker.
11.--56 mpg--what will it take to get there? No mention of what it takes,small cars that kill people in wrecks, etc.all bs.
12 What will regime run on:--A.Iraq--we pulled out-- left it on its own--wow!! will they really run on that?
B.Middle class saviors--they have destroyed this as well.
C.Killing off enemies--finally something they can run on but was it them or Seal Team 6 that did the killingand what happened to the team after that?
D. Country has been through a tough time. No shit Sherlock.
13.Steve Jobs was on our side--truth is he wasn't!!
14.The transparent obama --just too good!!
15.Plouffe--accuses us of no energy to get our voters to the polls when projection tell us he is slowly realizing he probably can't get voters to the polls.Look out for cheating at the polls,voter intimidation all the tricks the left can possibly use--sec. of states they own etc.
16.Romney bashing-he's a flip flopper,has no core-- good luck with more projection.
I will stick with desperate.!!
Don’t even start with the list John. I know it almost by heart.He does not have a prayer. But truth is we still can’t ignore him. We need a place for him to go after we get in. Sarah will have energy where will Newt go?He needs more than just a think tank.
LOL!! Hope you are right!!
Perry seems to be a person with some integrity. Not sure most of the other candidates and the media have much integrity.
Bray is right on, as always! College degrees in areas suited for “public employment” are right in line with the politburo. Teachers, for example, are corrupted and enslaved by the by the NEA. Few of these people ever consider seeking employment in the private sector because of the union benefits and the pay is also much lower.
Government accountants, IRS workers and the list goes on.
The punks participating in OWS are clueless. The old bats are trying to re-live youth, or just bored and stupid. The pros aren’t. One look at Oakland and the picture becomes crystal clear: anarchy.
Excellent as always, BRAY!
God help us save our Republic.
Thanks for your excellent report. I concur, they are desperate.
Furthermore, when democrat officeholders won’t appear with you, regardless of what the polls say you KNOW he is in trouble.
Also, for Solyndra Obama should have asked Chu to resign. However, since Chu is a Nobel winner, Obama is keeping him on. This is sheer stupidity or else Obama ordered the loan and he knows Chu will blab if he’s fired.
