Everytime Romney says "America"...Romney says "shining city on the hill"

Now just a bleepin' second...what about when Romney says:

"In the final analysis"!

It’s scheduled to air on my local NBC station, as in I wouldn’t even need cable to watch it, and I’m in Virginia.

“NBC is pre-empting Fear Factor nationwide for the debate, FYI.”

They are? Thank god. Where did you hear that?

Dish’s guide is notoriously unreliable.

You can not trust it to show the show that is airing.

I went to my local NBC affiliate's website at the schedule tab. It shows the debate at 8pm in the mountain zone. So if it's at 9et, why is it at 8 mountain?? Is this a replay of the CBS 'mostly on TV and stream the rest on a crappy website' kind of experience. The left has no shame. This is an absolute pantload.

Andrea Mitchell-Greenspan, NBC News, had a hit piece on Newt’s “America Solutions” 527 non-profit for “not violating the letter of the law, but going to great length of using the law to Gingrich’s advantage.”

What is the definition of Santorum whining? I hope the moderators aren’t included in the drinking game! Everytime these propogandist ask a question with a liberal premise, or quote some rigged poll, or ask about personal crap that doesn’t matter, I think most of the country wants to get drunk! I wouldn’t include the mostly wrong pundits either!

Hmm, lots of comments already. I’m here and it’s Corona Light tonight. Don’t have one in my hand yet, will wait until just before it starts. I’ve got cheese in the fridge. so it’s cheese and all grain Ritz crackers (I’m so healthy - not).

What y’all eating/drinking for this wonderful time together?

Yep, expect it -- just like last Thursday night, every analyst after the debate tonight will be telling us how Rick Santorum kicked everyone's ass, expecting us rubes to shift from Newt to Rick, and thereby give Romney the edge in Florida. Sooooooooo predictable.

The way I understand it, there is personal “water-over-the-dam” between Britt & Newt. It’s not so much that Britt is for Romney as much as Britt is not for Newt.

Great question.

I’m drinking Peter Vella Delicious Blush because I am a wine in a box kinda of guy.

The real question is what is Mitt drinking?

He can’t drink caffeine because of his religion, I bet he drinking Donnie and Marie’s drink of choice Hawaiian Punch.

If he is, he is going to be on one sugar high.

"Hume on OR bending over backwards for Mitt."

And on SPECIAL REPORT, Brett took the time after Hume's bit, to point out it was just Hume's, point of view. And gave him a chance to prove he was not if fact "in the tank for Romney". LOL!!!

From 2012 Election Central (emphasis mine):
"It seems that many cable and satellite channel guides (I've confirmed DirecTV and Dish among other cable operators) don't have the debate listed for NBC this evening.
It is happening tonight, it has not been canceled.
I think the fault lies with NBC in not updating their schedule with this event."
Imagine that!
