Greetings. I wish I had caught Rush’s interview with Greta last night.
Follow the bouncing link:
Yeah it was a very interesting interview. Especially the stuff about the candidates.
Work - N - Lurk!!!
Okay, a fun game today. Here is your available candidate list:
You get one vote and you MUST choose one of those listed. Who do you choose TODAY?
Ah, Rush; you are a man amongst men! Of course a drop in numbers is an inconvenient fact while they are trying to kick the unemployment benefits can down the pike another few miles.
Thanks. I’ll catch it tonight after work.
Merry Christmas, FRiend! :-)
A big Thank You to iowamark for putting this thread together for us!
Yesterday I tried to call Rush's show, but although I got a ring twice, couldn't get on. I learned quickly it was due to tech proglems.
I wanted to thank Rush for talking about how Obama has done NOTHING for our military. That is so VERY TRUE! In fact, I wanted to tell Rush about the things Obama has done to HURT our military who serve in Iraq and Afghanistan to protect us from Islamic Terrorists. I wanted to tell Rush about Obama’s Catch & Release policy and the present Rules of Engagement our brave soldiers face.
FRIENDS OF LIBERTY,
September 11, 2001, our lives changed forever. At first, our answer was swift and fierce, but now our troops catch the terrorists and release the terrorists! Now we appease the enemy because we don't want to offend them. Now our troops are ordered to get out of their armored car vehicles and do foot patrol so they can win the hearts and minds of our enemy.
Now we imprison our troops for killing the terrorists yet we release the known terrorists who have killed our Brave Sons and Daughters and these terrorists go right back to killing our soldiers again! http://www.nytimes.com/2010/05/24/world/asia/24reconcile.html
Yes, the truth is the Obama Catch & Release policy frees the terrorists and yet brave soldiers like Lt. Michael Behenna sit in Leavenworth for killing a known terrorist!
The Ballad of Michael Behenna:
To listen to the song, please go to this website http://www.ourstage.com/profile/chadevantodd/songs and scroll down to the list of songs where youll find The Ballad of Michael Behenna.
This is Another Infuriating case of Injustice to a Soldier: Derrick Miller
What is Americas “Catch and Release policy?
Its when American and NATO forces capture Taliban members only to watch them walk away free. (This occurred in Iraq as well)
As Sara Carter of the Washington Examiner reported, in the words of one our soldiers:
Its as if the Taliban have more rights than us or the people of Afghanistan, said Specialist Charles Brooks, 26, a U.S. Army medic with 1st Battalion, 4th Infantry Regiment, in Zabul province. We have to let these guys go all the time no matter what they do, and then we find them trying to hit us again. But if they think Ive screwed up once, then theyll [the military] have no problem throwing me to the wolves, Brooks said.
Why are terrorists, who have admitted to killing our Soldiers, released while brave Soldiers such as lst Lt Michael Behenna sit in Leavenworth? What message does the US military send when we punish our own Soldiers more harshly than we punish the combatants who have killed and maimed our brave men and women on the frontline?
Concerning Rules of Engagement:
Rep. John Mica of FL sponsored this amendment months ago. It passed the House but it still sits in the Senate Armed Services Committee. The fact that this amendment was even needed is terrible. Our soldiers have to wait to be fired upon before they can act to protect themselves. In other words, our soldiers have no second amendment rights while deployed in designated hostile fire areas!
AMENDMENT DESCRIPTION: Amendment requires that the rules of engagement allow any military service personnel assigned to duty in a designated hostile fire area to have rules of engagement that fully protect their right to proactively defend themselves from hostile actions.
AMENDMENT PURPOSE: An amendment numbered 38 printed in House Report 112-88 to require that the rules of engagement allow any military service personnel assigned to duty in a designated hostile fire area to have rules of engagement that fully protects their right to proactively defend themselves from hostile actions.
On agreeing to the Mica amendment (A018) Agreed to by recorded vote: 260 - 160 (Roll no. 354).
I know most Americans have NO IDEA about the terrible problems our troops face serving under the so called Commander In Chief presently in our White House! We must stand up for our troops, and call our members of Congress and tell them to STAND UP FOR OUR TROOPS and give our soldiers the right to defend themselves in the field, and stop freeing terrorists to fight again! We must also tell them to FREE Michael Behenna and our other soldiers in Leavenworth NOW!
I had this thought and posted on that thread:
When does any television audience have the opportunity to hear someone speak with such brutal honesty (especially about Obama and his agenda)!
To Rush listeners and most of us on FR, Rush didn't say anything we haven't already heard and don't already know, but to TV watchers only, this interview must have been quite shocking.
I hope Fox repeats this interview often over the weekend.
Santorum but he won’t be there by the time the primary reaches Merryland.
He did a great job of boiling this week's three shows down to just a few minutes. Greta is a much better interviewer than Hannity and O'Reilly - she let him talk.
At one point he went off on the theory of not going after Obama and slammed the RNC for saying it would alienate independents then talked about Pelosi, Reid and Boxer being nasty and ridiculed the idea that independents would flock to them.
He asked what democrat ideas have ever been productive and Greta (the former Dem) looked a bit uncomfortable.
I just heard Rush say the full interview is up on his website.
i think rush has a soft spot for greta - and it works to both their advantages - and ours
I just heard Rush say the full interview is up on his website.
got the house all set up into a “my space” sorta thing
as I mentioned yesterday, Texas State Championship games are on today thru saturday startin at noon Texas time.
I’m all in watchin on the web .....got the house stocked with eats and beverages....
kinda like a tailgate party indoors
gotta be a catch phrase for that.....lol
This first half-hour is sooooooooo much better than yesterday’s opening.
Fortunately, I don’t have to vote today.
However, if Tennessee moved to today, I would most likely vote for Bachmann.
PINGING MY FLORIDA FREEPER FRIENDS TO POST 15.
Another thing I know to be true is the fact that the ONLY Presidential candidate who will FULLY support our Military and actually HELP our Military is Governor Rick Perry!
PLEASE FOLKS, Take a closer look at Rick Perry!
Sharing what I would love to see happen:
President Rick Perry
Vice President Rick Santorum
Sec. of State John Bolton
Sec. of Defense Allen West
Attorney General Rudy Guelani
I thought Rush’ weakest point was his answer to Greta’s question as to why, if conservatives want a conservative nominee (after Rush had just made a comment suggesting that Romney & Newt were not the most conservative GOP choices), why the most conservative-—Santorum, Bachmann, and Perry-— were polling so low.
Rush doesn’t care if you are a 6 toed left handed monkey banana peeler, long as that is what you too say you are...
Greta is out there but she admits it to a T...
I’m really not happy with our choices but if I had to pick I guess Bachmann. But I have to say I think her odds are very slim (just being realistic; sorry).
NFL tonight and Saturday night. Bowl games start on Saturday too.
It’s the beginning of the Football Mecca. Be still my beating heart!
I almost forgot to join the programming today....Thank you for the ping to remind me.
I really hope Ron Paul doesn’t get the nomination. His supporters would be completely insufferable.
I got three each day for 3 days....all state championship games... pure bliss
Rush is really beating up Ron Paul, I can’t believe he’s going after him so hard.
I think it’s safe to say he’s trying to sway some people. LOL!
Democrat Party Candidate Darcy Richardson
CHICAGO TRIBUNE, LOS ANGELES TIMES AND OTHER NEWSPAPERS RUN ARTICLE ABOUT OUR CAMPAIGN
More wonderful news today as Michael Memolis story about Darcy was featured in the LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Baltimore Sun and many other newspapers across the country.
Richardson, an author who has run for local office in Pennsylvania, said in an email that if ever an incumbent president deserved an intraparty challenge, its Obama.
He hadnt intended to run he hoped former Labor Secretary Robert Reich would but decided to do so when it became clear that no progressive Democrat of some national stature would.
I personally like President Obama, but I think hes in way over his head when it comes to dealing effectivey with the U.S. economy, he said.
kinda like Alec Baldwin playin Alec Baldwin ?
Rush may be right about some tea party people supporting Ron Paul. Sarah Palin gave him kudos for having the proper domestic stances on economics. However, she said his foreign policy stances were crazy. It’s unfortunate that the other GOP candidates cannot articulate an easy to follow explanation of conservative economics.
I saw his gaze go skyward and it seemed like he decided not to say something. Maybe he was about to slam the polling firms or the media for manipulation ...
Usually the talk show hosts either don’t mention him or humor his supporters, but now they’re afraid he might actually win Iowa. Yesterday Hannity was talking about the controversial Ron Paul newsletters of old.
Wikinews interviews Darcy Richardson, Democratic Party presidential challenger to Barack Obama
If you had been elected president in 2008, what would you have done differently than Barack Obama?
Darcy Richardson: The fact that President Obama initially appointed Larry Summers as chairman of his White House Economic Council shortly after taking office, should have given everybody pause. Summers is probably more responsible for the countrys current economic mess than any other individual.
As President Clinton’s Secretary of the Treasury from 1999 to January 2001, Summers shaped and pushed the financial deregulation that unleashed the near-collapse of Wall Street in the autumn of 2008, particularly when he pushed through the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 during the final years of the Clinton Administration legislation, as you know, that had prohibited banks from doing both commercial and investment banking.
An architect-turned-enabler of this never-ending economic crisis, Summers later supported the Commodity Futures Modernization Act that, unbelievably as it might seem, mandated that financial derivatives including the reckless credit default swaps at the heart of the financial crisis could be traded between financial institutions without any government oversight whatsoever.
Its little wonder that Rolling Stone writer William Greider, in a marvelously detailed article in late 2008, pointed out that Obamas choice of Summers and other key economic advisers, including Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, seemed designed to sustain the failed economic policies of the Bush presidency an administration that never saw the financial crisis coming in the first place.
The Summers appointment told me that the President had no earthly clue how this devastating financial crisis happened or how to reverse it.
Things only got worse after that. President Obama failed to resurrect the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. He failed to include a public option in health care. He failed to assert his constitutional responsibility during the recent debt limit crisis. Unbelievably, he’s failed to protect Social Security and Medicare. He extended the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy. He failed to push for cap-and-trade. And he failed to close Gitmo. I could go on, but I think you get the point. If anybody deserves a serious intraparty challenge, it’s the current occupant of the White House.
In retrospect, it’s really incredible that a Democrat of national stature and credibility hasn’t entered this race at least as of now.
Do you believe Obama has done any good things as president?
Richardson: Nothing I could write a book about, unless it’s a work of fiction. He’s generally been disappointing, allowing the GOP to frame the debate on issue after issue. Who in their right mind wants the Republicans to dictate fiscal or economic policy in this country? The folks in the Occupy Wall Street movement have already figured that out. It’s just a matter of the rest of the country coming to the same conclusion...
Mark Levin was doing the same thing last night, conspiracy?
Sounds like it . . . not in a bad way, necessarily. But I do think they coordinate.
“I saw his gaze go skyward and it seemed like he decided not to say something. Maybe he was about to slam the polling firms or the media for manipulation ...”
I missed that nuance, but I did think about the question, even after the interview was over. It was a good question. I though along the same lines as you. How manipulated are we conservatives by the MSM (and the RINO wing)? ... EVEN though we know they are corrupt to the core.
To your wishlist, I actually do like Perry, but there is this “feeling” that I get that I am not sure how to comprehend. Not sure if it is the “Fred Thompson” feeling of being shoved in to the race without actually wanting to be in the race or if it is his laissez-faire style of governing Texas that may not translate well to the office of POTUS. Perhaps he would do well with a VP such as Bachmann.
So, in answering my own question, my vote would go TODAY to Bachmann.
My presidential selection list currently looks like this:
Perry - Gingrich tied
Romney and Paul are out.
