FNS

Wallace points out that Romney has refused to come on FNS or any of the news programs.

[Wallace had to offer similar admonishments in 2008 to finally get Obama to appear on FNS.]

Aaawwwwww, how cute!

Juan picked up and runs with the “Obama runs against a do-nothing Congress” because Congress hasn’t passed his recent bills.

Even Wallace points out that Obama got most of what he wanted early on — and it was spend, spend, spend.

Liason responds that it would be fruitless for Obama to try to run against Congress.

Interesting comment from Wallace that every candidate has been on the show except Mitt Rino. In fact Mitt hasn’t been on any Sunday show. Apparently he thinks he can coast to the victory.

Thanks for the thread and your report about seeing Herman Cain speak!

I met him in Tampa, at the after the debate Tea Party, “Party” I attended with my awesome FL FRiends! (Hi to Penny!)

The arrogant little Won won’t want to debate Herman Cain, who’s much more likable by a 1000X and smarter by 1000X too.

Also met Michele Bachmann, Mr. Speaker, Rick Perry and...Poseur Romney.

FNS shows an old tape of Romney claiming global warming IS happening.

FNS then shows a newer tape of Romney claiming global warming is NOT happening.

hahahaha

No wonder Romney won’t appear on any of the news talk programs.

No worry Juan Williams, Americans will like Congress more as the TEA Party and Conservatives decreases the number of Democrats and RINO’s at the 2012 election, unlike OWS, we’re doing it the right way, not sitting around feeling sorry for ourselves.

Brit Hume just stated that Romney used up his quota of flip-flops, people don’t trust him.

CW: How can you balance the budget?

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.]

Plouffe should be loaded with talking points. I will stick around to see what he has to spray.

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.

Are any of the shows talking about Hillary Clinton's private army of 10,000 civilian contractors who will be in Iraq after our military leaves this year?

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?

Moron-wahn can’t understand Cain’s success.

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.

Draft Palin.

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.

Because until your reform the tax code and broaden the tax base so everyone has skin in the game spending guts are always temporary.

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.

To: Alas Babylon!; All
Here is my summary of the Plouffe'S appearance. I wrote it in big letters at the end.

"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.!!

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.

Hi AB!

Great to learn you got to see Herman Cain in person. He is definitely an inspirational speaker. I've been very impressed with Cain since attending the September Presidency V weekend in Orlando. That's when Cain's poll numbers began seriously climbing. I've got Cain yard signs, buttons and bumper stickers. All in for the win!

I think you are right. They can’t really come down on Cain because then it would be all right for us to come down on the dear leader and they don’t want that. The race card is a huge play for them. If they lose it they could lose everything.

Sensible as usual, MM. I waited too late to see Perry on Fox but will watch the re-run.

I just hope all the infighting doesn’t cause us to end up with Romney. The conservatives are fighting so hard amongst themselves that they seem to have forgotten both Romney and Obama.

But, a random pick out of the Dallas phone directory would be better than Obama, so I suggest we concentrate on that.

It’s fine to have a favorite candidate and love him/her to death, but beware of hateful dissing of other people’s favorites. We don’t know what might happen to a particular candidate so it’s better not to dismiss the others.

Also, remember that the House and Senate are so important. We need more real conservatives in the House and a majority in the Senate. That will be a balance in case Romney wins.

There is a condition that permeates inside the Beltway [and frequently the east and west coast news media] -- Short Memory Syndrome. It especially happens to news people and to politicians. Give them 4 years or more inside the beltway and their recall goes nearly blank. Apparently, there is not cure, either.

This is why I don’t want everyone voting. The media always pushes “participation” as a good thing.

If you don’t understand what’s going on, please just stay home. I think a lot of voters just randomly pick candidates like poor students pick answers on multiple choice exams.

However, it’s how our system is set up, so until we get a law screening voters for knowledge of current events (which will never be passed) we are stuck with what we have.

This is why it is important to have a candidate who not only has conservative principles but LOOKS good. Sorry to say so, but a lot of people vote on the visuals.

The Chris Wallace interview, actually grilling , of Rick Perry was tough but for Perry a very good outcome. I think Perry is back in the game with this FOX appearance and that if he continues to be as personable and intellectually agile as he came across to me he will make a good presidential opponent to Obama. Romney may be the establishment choice but it will take a solid conservative House and Senate to keep him on the straight and narrow and that is too iffy to chance. Cain looks good to me as well but I like the Perry governor experience as being more solid for the presidential office. We shall see if Perry remains confident and self assured as he projected this AM.

Additionally, the RATs have painted the budget into such a corner that some obvious and necessary cuts (SS) are real complicated and would take a phase-in as we have heard in the past. (Bush's meager modification called "privatizing sosh-security)

Try playing the budget cutting game yourself...search "Budget Hero"

Good catch but when top military leaders suggest that 15,000 is the number of troops to leave and then the regime leaves 150—1%, its time to get pissed. They are sacrificing 9 years and 4,000 lives for political benefits in an election they cant win. More chaos, destruction of the country, devaluation the of the U.S. worldwide, IMHO.
