Michele Bachmann was complaining about being ignored and I just saw a guy on Fox News discussing it. His name slips mymind. It will come to me... Stephen somethng.
Anyway, he said she had a valid point but with so many candidates still in, it is logical to concentrate on the top tier candidates. Questioned why Huntsman is still up there at all. Apparently, Huntsman, Bachmann and Santorum are still in low single digits, but, hey, if they want to stay in, I guess they can.
In 1986, 1991 and 1993 we heard the same song and dance from DC “Give us more money and we will “Fix” the debt.
And in 1986, 1991 and 1993 taxpayers GAVE them massive tax hikes and got.....massive increases in spending.
How many times are we going to let the professional political class sell us out before we finally fire them?
Debbie blabbermouth...”Millionares and Billionares..blah, blah.” She is like one of those dolls you pull the string on the back and it starts talking the same comments over and over.ha.
I shut off the sound for the first segment of FNS as I am already sick to death of the Penn State boy-raping scandal.
The same time spent participating on this thread was much more enjoyable without the annoying blather on that topic.
FNC panel now discussing GOP primary campaign.
Cain bothers me more and more. Saturday morning there were threads that he is willing to take any position — VP, but he prefers SecDef.
Agree that was an odd statement by Cain, preemptive strike on the veep spot when he is that high on the polls seems strange.
I wish we could all forget the woman thing. It doesn’t seem to have hurt him, and I think it’s over, but frantic defending of him on this just keeps it in everyone’s mind.
FYI, I would not take the information at that link too seriously Morgan,
The Tax Policy Centers is a product of the Leftist Brooking Institute and the ultra Leftist Urban Institute.
They “analysis” is not worth the bandwidth it uses up.
I would look to see what Cato or Heritage has to say about the GOP tax plans.
It’s just us and a few other nuts. ;)
Kristol saying Newt has more staying power than Cain, Wahn shooting daggers at him.
Wallace say’s he’s going to get emails about Kristol/establishment GOP being in the tank against Cain.
Wallace asks Wahn about Perry and Letterman.
I see just let the fanatic attacking of Cain on it go unchallenged instead.
Again, how about we focus on making a case FOR our candidates of choice, instead of finding some excuse to trash talk the others.
What most people know about the debates is what the news channels say the next day.
By the way, Stephen Hayes. Brain freeze over.
Kristol: Only Gingrich and Romney showed they were capable of being president, based on the foreign policy debate. It will be a Gingrich-Romney race to the nomination.
Williams: Perry is out, can’t win, shouldn’t be on the stage.
Newt really connects with audience and viewers when he sticks it to the press.
I think people dislike the press more than they do lawyers now. :)
Really? Romney who merely repeated what ever the other candidates had said before him?
THAT is Presidential in the GOP Establishment’s world?
Cain is really bothering elitists like Kraut and Krystal.
Yes. I don’t think Newt would be a good canidate. For one thing, he is undependable on isues.
Secondly, the media has all of their stuff on him from the 90’s in their archives, and as soon as he got the nomination he would be attacked with the old “Gingrich Who Stole Christmas” line. The general public’s collective memory of him has been poisoned by the media.
Plus, I think Callista is as scary as Michelle Obama.
Good, now we can make media jokes.
Q: What is blue, yellow and orange and looks good on members of the leftist media?
Johnnie, my point was that the attacks have stopped but the constant harking back to them is just keeping the thing fresh in everyone’s mind.
Just my opinion.
Many of us are old enough to remember trying to score in a car (and sometimes even succeeding) but that was because we didn't have a room let alone a hotel suite to go to.
At this time, I would like to see a convoluted race next spring, ending with no clear nominee and a brokered convention. Except that the GOP would probably pull defeat out of the jaws of victory and nominate the other Bush.
Manipulation of the economic/jobless numbers is well underway. And the Obama supporters have been tauting his foreign policy successes. They still have a year for rehabilitation.
Obama could be a formidable incumbent facing an embattled, wounded GOP nominee. Incumbency is difficult to win against.
You just made me laugh with the Callista thing!!
I agree with you. People are jumping on the Newt bandwagon because they love his debate performances.
We need to remember that Newt, while wildly entertaining in debates, cannot energize a crowd with a speech or connect warmly with people in the press the flesh stuff.
Also, long forgotten problems with Newt will resurface quickly if he starts leading the polls.
Kristol saying the lawless antics of the Marxist OWS filth is antidemocratic.
Come on Kristol...it IS the RAT party.
Wahn defending the OWS morons and saying polls show Americans back the OWS more than the TEA partiers.
Williams is reading the talkingpoints which say the Occupy is more popular than the Tea Party.
Wallace tries to interrupt Juan’s reading, to no avail, as Williams manages to finish his obvious reading.
I happened to see Reince Priebus interviewed by Candy Crowley this morning and did not know who he was or what party he was speaking for until I saw his name on the screen. He talks with an NPR voice. What is up with that?!!! He speaks platitudes. No wonder he is invisible.
O’Malley and Baltimore, same system that produced Princess Nancy D’Allesandro Pelosi.
Q: What is blue, yellow and orange and looks good on members of the leftist media?
Don’t worry. We’re killing ourselves right now as evidenced by really vicious infighting on this forum. But when a winner emerges, we’ll go back to thinking about Obama.
Thinking about Obama will make anyone vote for the Republican candidate and all these people saying, “I will never vote for — fill in the blank” are just venting.
At least, I hope so.
Thanks for the information. I prefer CATO and Heritage but this was the only one I found with information side by side. Still, I’ll try to remember to always consider the source.
hahaha ... bet you have more.
The liberals are setting us up.... Cain gets high in the polls, the media attack him over allegations set up by the left, his poll numbers drop.... Romney gets the nomination, and the liberal media attack goes like this, racist elements in the tea party would never have allow a black man to be their nominee, Herman Cain had no chance......That is why the tea party is so against Obama, this has nothing to do with Obama policies it’s simply so many can’t stand to see a black man succeed.....
Thanks for thread AB.
yeah that the thing the ticks me off the worse. The other side is relentless in propagandizing it’s spin. And they are really really slick. That Tax Center site is beautiful and easy to use.
meanwhile those on our side sits on their hands instead of getting on the battlefield of ideas.
The Tax Center is a good example of how the Left uses front groups to spin it’s message as “non partisan”. Our side should be busy fighting that. Instead they are too busy echoing the attacks on OUR candidates by the Junk Media.
Actually, O’Malley was just an opportunist and squatter in Baltimore. His roots and sympathies are Montgomery County. Baltimore is a disaster area, and O’Malley does not have one gram of sympathy or feeling of responsibility for it.
Historically, Baltimore was the power that controlled Maryland politics. This probably rankled the spoiled brat from the DC suburbs all his life, and he is reversing that power structure now. All of Maryland’s Democratic political power is now located in the counties surrounding the volcano of money that is the District of Columbia. Baltimore is becoming Detroit. And because the local papers are both 110% in the DNC, the public have no idea what is happening in the Md legislature - except for the massive tax increases that are taking place.
We are only toast if we decide to surrender to the machine. I say we fight it instead.
If we are done anyway, let us go down swinging.
If you think Tom Coburn represents the “GOP establishment,” I’ve got a bridge in Brooklyn I can sell you at a steep discount.
Cobrun has been sent out to tell Conservatives that yet again, they have to take whatever the GOP Establishment decides to dish out. We are suppose to just meekly accept it because one of our supposedly Congressional leaders is telling us to.
If all the GOP leadership is going to do is roll over every time the Democrat political machine barks like this, they are completely useless to us.
Was FNS trying to place the blame on the REP gov?
Bachmann actually gave the best and most substantive answers on foreign policy. The problem was that she was effectively shut out of the discussion. She was chomping at the bit to respond to the “torture” question and the outrageous responses of Paul and Huntsman. Newt gave the best sound bite on the issue, but he failed to address the issue of waterboarding properly. Missed opportunity.
Platinum helmet-head who otherwise looks as harsh as her hair. I haven't met a woman yet who looks forward to seeing her as FLOTUS. The dual undisclosed Tiffany's lines of credit will be a public relations liability down the road, as well as the two-week Greek Isles cruise shortly after Gingrich announced his candidacy. Callista doesn't invoke warm and fuzzy feelings.
Newt is a legend in his own mind. He is not a conservative nor is he a capable executive. He is too willing to compromise with the Dems and lacks an overall vision for this country. Newt is the ultimate chameleon, pun intended.
Thanks Nauti, just your humble correspondent.
Morning AB, All....
Beautiful day here in the swamps. Lots and lots and lots going on here. Just got back from singing mass. Sang Canon Allelujah and another pretty communion song. End of November, as I understand, entire mass is changing. Next week, singing for the Bishop!
As always, AB, thank you for doing this thread. Your firm but gentle presence is appreciated.
Biggest news here in the swamps where councilmen are kneeing sherrifs in the groin then falling out of the sky in a toy airplane type thing, where we have a new district due to the growth of our area and I am in the new district only they won’t let us elect an RDC (representative district chair) but instead want to appoint one....biggest news this week...mark your calendars.
For this coming Friday,11/18 ABC, at 8 AND 9 pm-est....Extreme Home Makeover televises about earthquakes, hurricanes, oh my...here in the swamps.
My review of this matter, with pics, below:
If have a chance, check it out....because...
there’s just soooooo much more to this story. Like ABC, firmly in the hand of the Obamas (just two weeks ago they premiered starring....TADA...Moochelle Obama)....has been so thoroughly duped and mislead. I’ll be doing another article on this mess but for now....
The local zoning board TURNED DOWN THIS SOOOOOP kitchen for serving the homeless (which there are NO homeless round here, this lady created this thing out of whole cloth). Seems nobody bothered dealing with such mundane matters what with the politicos all happy with the Obama blessing and the publicity....
This place is about a mile down the road from me. Husband and I CANNOT SERVE SOUP TO THE HOMELESS and this “reverend” got turned down because, hell, they make zoning laws for a REASON!
Also breaking lots of local laws....big news. Remember you heard it here first.
The liberals are all boo hooing, boo hoo, boo hoo, for the homeless without their soup. Before this woman came to town there WERE no homeless. But they sure came up once free soup was handed out. Along with a tent city kind of thing and if she’s allowed to continue on in her brand new ABC duped home WE WILL have a tent city in our backyard.
Silly local laws.....
Anyway, I’m very distressed about this Penn state thing.
Now watching Meet the Press....will catch up on earlier posts.
The problem you have here, Bray, is that the esteemed Karl Rove said that Gloria AllDumb is a very believable woman, a female of great respect.
As such we should believe her client. Rove....loyal Republican who will not lead us astray.
I adore Bachmans new look.
Well, let’s see:
Nixon was a crook.
Reagan was an amiable dunce.
Dan Quayle was an idiot.
Packwood was a male chauvinist pig.
Clarence Thomas was a wild-eyed womanizing black man.
The Judge was “Borked”
Condoleezza Rice was Aunt Jemimah.
Bush was a chimpy bushitler war criminal moron.
Sarah Palin is _________ (fill in the blank)
The TEApartiers are racist whackos.
Michelle Bachmann is “unstable”
Perry is a racist.
Herman Cain is...
Guilanni, Romney, McCain, Graham etc. are reasonable moderates.
Here’s what’s also weird....Cain lived all over the country yet the only females he ever harassed were in Chicago.
Maybe something in the air there?
Agree—Bachmann was in top form last night. David Gregory is trying his best to catch her in a gotcha today.
That the problem Newt will have to face. His personal morality is a complete non issue, it's his political morality that GOP voters are going to have issues with
Mr. Stone, if you are a mister.
know right now that the bridge you are putting up for sale, BELONGS TO ME!
Please do not sell property that is not yours.
But for a small fee, I will sell it TO you.
