I suspect you are right.
There is simply no way they would allow Sheriff Arpaio's investigation to be discussed. After all, it is real news!
I have heard ms. fluke’s name pronounced as ms. Fluck, really. Someone on FOX and it was not satirical.
Your comment is so much more appropriate now. Carbonite is probably going to be “fluked” indeed. :-)
Eerily reminescent of 1984. That is exactly what Obama and his cohorts would like.
He manages to make people believe something different, I don’t know how.
Just saw a congressman ... forget who... on F&F who was discussing the demise of the Volt. Hah. He also said that government is trying to promote cars like the Prius including tactics like having parking spaces reserved for ‘energy efficient cars.’
This is happening in Irving, Texas. I really want to park a Hummer in one. And, by the way, Alan West drives a Hummer==good for him. Sarah Palin just suggested him for VP.
And then what? Propose and advocate a federal law that mandates insurance without co-pay for diabetics?
Hitler’s lips are moving on This is Weak with Stepinawfulpis.
I do believe that would be Mr. O’Reilly ..... LMAO!
George (over the)Will thinks we don’t have issues?
We have EVERY issue. There is not one single issue that Obama is not dead wrong on.
David Gre-gory brought it up the 1st thing w Newt. Newt threw it right back to him - why are we talking about this when there are other issues to discuss, and it is not a womens’ health issue, it is a religious freedom issue; and, Obama has done more than any president against religious freedom. Brought up the Catholic institutions and also a Protestant one. Apologies, it was about an hour ago here and I’ve been reading different things and doing some stuff at home - should have taken notes or posted sooner. When pressed by David, Newt said it was right for Rush to apologize. I think Newt did a good job on Meet the Depressed; but, perhaps I’m partial (I was only 1 of 2 at our table that caucused for Newt yesterday).
That being confessed, let me say, after the tragic events of this past week: Breitbart Is Here ... because Breitbarts in all of us now ... in every heart of every Liberty loving American ... representing vitality, passion, freedom, brilliance, possibility and strength. American Patriots, youve been handed the torch. The George Orwell legend, In an era of universal deceit, the truth is a revolutionary act. To cower in silence is no longer an option.
Was hoping someone would mention Brietbart here. We KNOW the Sunday shout shows won’t touch it.
Generally speaking I despise vapid conspiracy theories—except when they are true, of course.
That said, I think Breitbart was murdered. Pure and simple. This really smells of those three letters McCain saw in Putin’s eyes years ago.
You all remember those three letters, right? I’d mention them here but I don’t have the money for bodyguards,
The world is rancid with freelancers once employed at Lubyanka, Dzershinsky Square. Would the Demoviks hire such same?
As one we know and love would say, you betcha.
Yes, Rush put Carbonite on the map. They are now successful enough to run ads all the time on television. Guess they don’t think they need him anymore. Hah! He probably sells more for them than all the tv ads combined.
By the way, their ads are actually kinda clever, even though I sent them a nasty e-mail.
I got a bridge to sell anybody doesn’t think those hosts weren’t called by the White House and told to beat on the Rush Limbaugh flap.
Gregory WILL NOT LET IT DROP!
Also Cantor endorses Romney?
Bums me out.
Birth Control vs. Birth Certificate.
Washington Post had the phonetic pronunciation.
It rhymes with “look”
This thread is about what is being said n the Sunday morning talk shows. Rush is being discussed.
Santorum on FOX news Sunday - Wallace asks don’t you have to win in (Ohio? missed which state he referred to)? Santorum says we have a great grass roots campaign. Harder when you have two conservatives running. Says we need to show we are the best candidate going forward.
Wallace asks shoud Newt drop out - Santorum - it’s up to Newt. If we combined votes (gingrich and Santoru m) we’d beat Romney, we’ll see how things go in the future.
Wallace asks about filing problems (ohio delegates, VA). Romeny says Santorum flunked on not making sure this basic step occurred. Response, we’re doing pretty well given our resources.
Asked about Rush’s comments/Blunt amendment - do you really want to campain on contraception? Santorum responds this is about a moral exception (a conscience clause exception) for any part of this health care law. This used to be accepted as normal. Govt should NOT be forcing Americans to do things that goes against their conscience.
Wallace brings up comment that Santorum said he thinks contracpetion are wrong.( my comment - he never said that) Brings up 99% of women in this country use artificial BC at some point. Are you saying that all these women have done something wrong? (WOW) Santorum said this is about the govt forcing others to change their positions.
Asks about charitable contributions. Santorum only gave 1.7% why so cheap compared to obama and Romney? Santorum responds his family spends a lot of money on his children, especially his daughter Bella. Insurance does not cover a lot of costs for taking care of Bella. Wallace keeps pushing this 2% - why you so Cheap, Rick? Again Santorum said he was dedicating his resources to taking care of people in his own family. (That was low to keep pushing that point, IMO.)
Now Wallace asks about the SNOB comment and that obama never said what Santorum claimed. Shows 2006 campaign where he supported making federal loans more accessable for college.
Wallace asks about “took one for the team” comment (no child left behind). Santorum says things he didn’t like then (the spending) proved to be a huge problem after it was enacted. Wallace shows 2006 campain where he touted NCLB vote.
Wallace asks about economic plan - non partisan committe on blah,blah,blah said it would add 4T to defecit (did I hear that right?). Santorum responds their analysis is static. Doesn’t see any growth if you cut regulations, etc.
I hate when Santorum lets moderators put him on the defensive and thus comes across as weak and ineffectual.
I hate it because he may be our nominee. Barring a miracle (which I’m kinda praying for) it will be Santorum or The Robot, so I’m wanting Santorum to get me to like him and man up.
I think you will do just fine:o)
I like Santorum best of the bunch left in the race, and I’ll vote for him if he is still running when the primary comes here to the People’s Republic of Maryland, but the fact is he is just running for 2016 at this point, at which time he’ll be the defacto front-runner/heir apparent as Romney is today. If he was honest, he’d just say ....
From Doug Powers writing on Michelle Mailin's site:
Worth noting: Carbonite is still listed as a sponsor of the Ed Schultz Show. You might recall what Schultz said about Laura Ingraham last year, something for which he also subsequently apologized.
That’s good to hear and I will find out after church as I am recording the shows. (that Santorum did well on contraception)
By the way, how did we let contraception become an issue?
The left is scarier than the devil. Maybe they are the devil.
