I agree, and it reflects on who she is.
“THIS JUST IN (1 hour until debate time)
Fox News and ABC website have just called Mitt Romney the debate winner.
Gotta love Romney because women are swooning over him. /s Isn’t that right, ABC?
I can’t see ABC on my channels..(see how often I watch them..) where can I find it on TV? Thank you:-)
Has to be better than listening to upchuckabee;(
Who is your TV provider?
yeah, I’m out on squirrel eatin frat fat boys
My give-a-damn’s pretty broke too.
Right, we're all "blown away". (sarc)
Love your tagline!
Time Warner. But I checked the 9pm eastern programs and I found it..the name of the channel is WMTW. Would never have guessed! Thank you so much anyway :-)
Me neither. I'd like to see the Trump debate, though. I want to hear serious questions and serious answers that matter to Republicans.
All the debates so far have been left wing moderated, designed to turn off the Independents. The candidates kiss their liberal butts for an hour, anyway, with a big smile on their faces.
so true..if ABC said this debate must be done bottomless, our side would complain of the cold
Enjoy the upcoming extravaganza!
Damn! That was so detailed and realistic I think I’ll skip the debate and watch that ‘99 Fiesta Bowl. Naw, on second thought the Vols pulled that one off
All candidates will be medicated tonight.
Paul will say something, while channeling Gandhi, that makes the cameraman shake his head.
Rick S will remind us of our need for moral clarity.
Michelle will (man I hope she doesn’t wear that Russian outfit) try to piss everyone off.
Perry will be awake most of the debate.
Romney will move about to get just the right light on that hair.
At Some Point Newt will, with clarity, dramatically coin a new exceptionally bold substantive idea that will fundamentally and monumentally alter the transformation of the eco-political landscape. Or, in other words, he will numb the moderators and leave the others nodding their heads.
I think there is a bet amongst tonights Newt-bashers; the first to nod yes to a Newt response is O U T!
“and it will be a two man race in Florida, Perry and Newt...”
At least I’ll give the Perry worshippers credit for not allowing Reality to plague them.
Hi Saca - just noticed you here;) Seems like old times.
Way past my bedtime - ha ha. Heard Harris Faulkner mention a total lunar eclipse ‘in a few minutes’. Sure enough there is a beautiful full moon out tonight, but the eclipse can only be seen on the west coast;( Dagnabbit!
Trying to stay alert - sending ESP messages to Newt - to stay focused, friendly and fumr.
does anyone hav a link to ABC TV online?
“Trying to stay alert - sending ESP messages to Newt - to stay focused, friendly and fumr.”
Yes. And not start off by saying “Well, it’s obvious I’m going to be the candidate, so why don’t the rest of you just go home?”
I like watching the debates for Michele. She makes my antennae perk straight up. Wish TX could kidnap her.
I think you might be spot on. I just want Newt NOT to back down. Not to apoligize for anything, and certainly not to take bait and drop to the pathetic Romney attack dog attitude.
Newt should be above all of this. Americans love a winner. The enemy is not on stage. The enemy is Obama. I pray Newt will keep with the message that’s worked and that is to attack Obama.
Basically, there is not much difference between Romney and Newt. I think those of us on FR feel that NEwt is best equipped to speak frankly and clearly regarding the distinction between our side and Obama’s side.
This man is not my president. He doesn’t speak for me...
You could make money with that crystal ball;)
Nailed it!!! LOL!
However, I voted for President Goldwater who literally got "nuked" by an ad that actually never ran in the paid media, but ran gratis in every news program in November, 1964!!!
I don't understand politicians or talk hosts who don't engage in saying stuff, or attacking stuff that the people like, or despise. Trump and Noot do it as do most "new media" talk radio hosts, but no body else seems to capitalize on this and I believe it's why Noot is doing so well currently, for the time being, until further opportunities for him to screw up present themselves like the beginning of his campaign!!!
The ABC livestream is already going, turns on automatically when you go to the homepage. Just filler music now, until 9PM EST.
Here’s some classic Stephanopoulos...
Stephanopoulos: “Bill Clinton has no character problem”
Anyone know how long it’s going to be tonight? 90 min or 2 hours?
I had the same dilemma as you. I had to look up ABC.
It’s channel 8 on my network.
Watch for George to ignore the hell out of Perry. His contagion WANT to run against Newt, now that Romney’s been effectively deflated.
I predict Perry will have to demand time to finish an answer at least 3X.
Just once I would like to see a political debate, primary or general, where the candidates all get a shot to talk about a particular policy question.
This reality show crap where the moderator uses the most time of anyone doesn’t do anyone any good. The kids won’t learn it in school, give them a chance to see a real debate on TV at least.
This should be interesting. Stephie HATES Newt, and I do mean H-A-T-E.
Newt destroyed the reputation of his mentor, Bill Clinton, and wrecked the future political plans of Stephie himself.
Same here. Channel 8. See, I learnt something major today..ha..
"Is this the same George Stephanopoulos
who enabled fraud before the American public?"
I wish. Unfortunately, the beeyotch is still around.
ABC online admits all staff is left of liberal
**I am a Palin supporter so frankly I don’t care anymore.**
Now that right there is a tragedy - but Sarah is not to blame. She, Todd, her adult children and young kids have taken body blows from the media for FOUR YEARS!!!
What have we suffered? Unrequited politics?
That is why Newt is a great candidate for most of us. I have written many times; we don’t LOVE Newt - heck we barely even like him. But he is knowledgeable, experienced, familiar with the snakes in Congress and Federal agencies. He hates losing to lesser men and thus doesn’t shrink from a fight. That he has so many detractors still in Congress is evidence he is not a ‘pleaser’ but a patriot.
Give Newt another look - but don’t go overboard;)
thank you - I Just finally found it - was getting nervous ;o)
ABC commentators keep saying Gingrich is unused to be the center of attention = Golly, they really know that they’re talking about!
Guess it’s time to go find ABC on my channel lineup. This takes time as I have no remote.
The pre-game commentators are talking now on the ABC feed, people I never heard of. Good news: The feed isn’t choppy, but then again the demand isn’t strong now, before the debate.
I am watching Homer now.
that gaggle of idiots doing the “color commentary” on the ABC webpage, are enough to make me puke. (Just thought I would give you all fair warning....and toss a few barf bags in your general direction as well...you’re gonna need em ;-)
Well, aren’t the ABC commentators having fun trying to preset the ground against Newt - PUKES...how can he possibly handle ‘being the center of attention for the first time”
These pre-game commentators are goofy.
The word has been out for a while. LoL
Even is 2011, the networks always dump their more marginal personnel to the web.
Bill Clinton has probably tutored Stephanopoulos on Newt’s wheeling and dealing during the Hillarycare fiasco.
Clintoon carries more grudges than Newt has baggage.
ditoo that Mags.......these faggot lovin aholes have no clue whether ya blow em up or stuff em
