The Talk Shows
March 18th, 2012
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney; actor George C. Looney and John Prendergast, co-founder of the Enough Project, an advocacy group that does work in Sudan.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.; Clooney and Prendergast.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus; David Assholerod, adviser to Obama's re-election campaign.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum.
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Santorum; Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis.; Afghanistan's ambassador to the U.S., Eklil Hakimi.
That reminds me of the Dart system we have locally. It was sold as a social issue - for the disadvantaged. We could send a taxi to pick up everyone who rides it and come out ahead.
In Irving we see huge buses lumbering by constantly with one, two or no passengers. Gripes me big time.
1) It would bring an unprecedented number of viewers to our convention.
2)It delays Obie's attack on our guy, (unless he wants to attack them all).
3) Undecided voters don't pay attention until fall.
4) Our guys will have plenty of time to get their licks on Obie, even while fighting amongst themselves.
5) It might provide a chance to bring a new face into the race "for the good of the party"...Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio.
If Mitt doesn't have it wrapped by then, he's got to read the tea leaves. It seems more and more Pubbies are realizing how weak Mitt would be, with his too-similar positions on Obiecare, immigration, etc. and his hesitancy to ATTACK Obama.
You've got them and be careful out there............... it's more dangerous than you may think.
Yep, as for Santorum and Romney, it’s the economics, the economy will not recover if we just back off a little on liberal policies without implementing conservative solutions, that’s where I could be more enthusiastic about either of them, and right now I think Romney is second behind Newt in offering a more conservative economic solution...and Hillary said he couldn’t handle the call at 3am, he can’t handle the call when it comes at 3pm, a specific example that should be brought up by the media in a debate, as when someone had to give him that jacket to put over his golf shirt so he’d aesthetically look more business like...
(and that’s one problem everyone needs to get, if one generalizes criticism like “he lies”, back it up with a specific example)
Probably a reference to Romney putting his dog, Seamus, on the roof of his car (in a carrier), then driving for hours.
I don’t know if it will go that far but I won’t be sad if it does. All the benefit comments you made. I think the so-called pundits who are complaining about the short time between the nomination and the election are wrong.
Mitt could still win it, at the convention or earlier, but at the minimum it keeps our issues alive and in the news for people to talk about and think about. Daily this would remind the voting public about how horrible 0bama has been.
NO need, your stuff is great,wow sounds like yet another union payoff.We passed on it in Fla. still wondering what the retribution from the regime will be.
Thanks, Cboldt. I went looking for the info and made a post about it which has since been deleted.....not sure what I did wrong. :-(
Your link is HILARIOUS!
For sure son. We have some huge problems. They require huge solutions. Only Newt has them.If he’s not nominated his ideas should be.
This Clooney thing.....watched/read about how it evolved and have to smirk.
But first, I must suppose that stopping a genocide and intentional starvation of a populace is not a good thing. That’s the cause for which Clooney fights and hey, I’ll give him a grudge of admiration for using his fame and influence to stop a true evil.
I heard he stopped by the WH yesterday and after giving the O campaign a hefty donation, they advised him to go himself arrested for the publicity.
They would call up the Meet the Press people and arrange for him to be on the show tomorrow.
I mean these poor Sudanese people getting terrorized and starved....Clooney’s fighting for a good cause.
But like it always goes, there’s probably something I don’t know. Unlike before, I now squint with attention and vow to not accept the story as presented by the Lamestream and yeah, even George Clooney.
Good job! As every freeper should add comments in their local news/online media outlets too. Keep it short, specific, factual, and to the point.
So how many of these "1 billion" moslems live in highly nukable cities?
before I forget, want to mention that it was so nice to see our spokesnoid, Senator McCain.
Guy spent all kind of time defending the Afghan war and dag, he is my hero for passing that Campaign Finance Reform, I sleep better at night knowing it’s the law of the land. What a great legislative achievement that was.
McCain also took Obama to task for not fighting the wars properly and just a thought here....but shouldn’t he have mentioned that sort of thing DURING his campaign against Obamer?
Doggone, McCain wouldn’t even let us use Obamer’s middle name for God’s sake.
And now he is back....dear Lord he’s BAAAAAAAAAAAAAACCCCCCKKK!
Speaking for us he is, such a fine candidate he was. He reaches across the aisle with polished nails and, as husband reminded twenty times this morning....
....he is a Maverick.
Just my random thoughts.
I am thinking along the same lines.
Yep, McCain had the opportunity to critique what we all knew would and did happen under Democrat economic policy during the drawn-out Democrat primary since February that year, and instead panicked 3 weeks before the election when Joe the Plumber decided it was time to start paying attention. Joe may have not been so undecided if McCain wasn’t so intent on being Mr Nice-guy.
And I do like the idea of a short election campaign; it might inspire more normal people to get into future elections instead of just offering us voters the choices of which candidates are willing to spend years running for a nomination.
I believe Capt Alexander. He is a REAL officer and a gentleman. He is also putting his career on the line by going public like this, but it is the right thing to do, and for that, he has my undying Senior NCO respect.
While praying for the Bales, pray for the good Captain, too.
Frankly, we are asking too much of all these fine young men and it sickens me that because of these demands, tragedies like this happen. It really is too much. I have no answer.
Hey, where’s your essay? Are you taking a break this week? Not that you don’t deserve it.
Your essays do not take away from this thread. Rather, they are welcome!
Now, so nobody thinks I’m playing favorites, anyone can post an essay here, and if they ask me nicely, I’ll even post it for them.
In any case, I can hardly dictate what can and can’t or shouldn’t be posted in Mr. Robinson’s web site.
I enjoy Bray’s essays, so I gladly post them.
If any President, dem or pubbie aggravates the likes of Rush Limbaugh they risk getting a spanking that hurts for along while.Just ask dingy harry about the letter he sent to Clear Channel.How'd that work Senator putz.
This guy Bales was on his 73rd recall since we only have 4 troops in reserve these days.And zero’s answer is to cut the defense budget more. We need more fema brownshirts not troops.
Of course that never will excuse what he did.That was just plain stupid.
My goodness that is true!
Really, Romney's statement is a disaster. What a wishy-washy milquetoast thing to say. Where's his fire that the rest of us, who love our country and is dismayed by what Obama is doing. have? I say that not as someone who like or dislikes Romney; but I want to see Obama defeated!!!!
If Romney is too weak to do so, and an argument like that is a sure loser, than Romney CANNOT be the nominee.
I cannot agree with you, Rod. You have NO idea what he's been through. Up to the very last day. Yes, it is no excuse, but it is the reason, like night following day, or rain coming from dark, swollen clouds.
How can something be stupid when no thought was even formed, and the only thing left was vast, horrendous outrage? If thought had won, nothing bad would have happened. But that is now in the past, and we must deal with the present and the future.
Please pray for Mrs Bales and her two small children.
My husband is trying to do the right thing in speaking up for Bales when he cannot. Thank you for your prayers and good wishes.
I would say more about this, but I don’t think it’s appropriate for me to say.
Back from church and catching up - some good comments here from many folks.
Re: Mitt "accepting" the idea, I see the situation a bit differently. I believe Romney and the GOP-E (a friend calls them the Institutional Republican Party) understand perfectly well that he's never going to win over conservatives.
I think the reality is more ominous, in that the GOP-E would prefer to lose with "their man" than to win with conservatives and upset their comfortable status quo. If we learn nothing else from this election, at least we have seen the Establishment elites, which includes both parties, reveal their hand and demonstrate that wealth and power are all that matters to them.
Thanks,tea party taking over pubbies= a great idea.
While he should never have been sent over for yet another tour that he seemed not to have not wanted or to have been ready for,few will excuse what he did.
It is my belief that there has been a long term, deliberate policy/plan to grind down, over-deploy, stress out and weaken our military.
Additionally, destruction of morale through impossible ROE’s and legal prosecution/persecution via corrupt, politically-motivated JAG and NCIS lawyers and their politicized command hierarchy. Remember the “Haditha 9” marines? Multiply that by dozens of similar cases that passed beneath the public’s radar, which have destroyed careers, impoverished the families of services members and imprisoned many.
Now we are about to witness Sgt. Bales own chain of command throw him to the wolves in a vain, stupid and futile attempt to appease the mob of un-appeasable savages.
Agree with all you’re saying re Sgt. Bales. I’d like to know how many guys have been prosecuted like Haditha 9 (all of whom were acquitted except Sgt Witterich who copped a plea to “insubordination” in lieu of mass murder). This is bringng to my mind Tim McVeigh. No comparison in scale of course. But I’d love to know what Tim was thinking. Neither he nor Bales have claimed “insanity”. Indeed a mental defect has been aluded to with Bales (”brain trauma”) but not to the level of legal defense. The active servisemen I am hearing from (I’m a veteran) are pretty much down on Bales for once again portrating us “all” as baby killers. The stresses and humiliation the US command structure and CIC have and are placing on these guys is intolerable, and now they threaten to further reduce retirement medical and financial benefits.
My dream scenario: a deadlocked convention brings the party together with a Ryan-Rubio ticket that sweeps the election in the fall and secures control of the White House for the next 16 years. President Ryan's first cabinet appointment is Sarah Palin as Secretary of Energy, and we all live happily ever after.
I am not convinced that mittens would be better. He has flip flopped on so many issues. I have no faith that he will repeal o-care. Of course, we KNOW o will not repeal it. I don’t know that congress critters will do so either - of either/both party.
You’re breathing aren’t you?
Pray for America
When talking w/ MTP, he said the prior admin (Bush) tried to talk with these sand tick leaders which was, of course, futile but he later said 0 should confer w/ them. Which is it looneyclooney?
I agree with what yo said,zeros plan was always to savage the military, over use them demoralize them and then defund them.An axelrod way of destroying them,they are almost there.
Thanks,to ignore the influence of the left having both houses since 06 is ignorant.
It also helps explain how almost everything started taking an obama dive to the bottom of the pool since they achieved power int office. All I can say is hopefully, never again.
I would not use McVeigh as an example. I am hugely conspiratorial and believe the iraqis were behind him and one of the reasons GW chose them(Iraq) as a target(in addition to obvious prompts from 41) after 911.Don’t get me started. There is so much there.
Wow that just got me fired up!!!
I share your fears. Trouble is it may not be our call as things progress.
Few realize that most any of these tinhorn dictators are bought and sold regularly,they can even spell the word allegiance much less fathom what it means.
OK. Im NO fan of McVeigh, but one downside of capital punishment is we never find out what happened. Maybe keeping them around like Hannibal Lechter to “study them” is not always a bad idea (unless they escape!! Or get shanked or bludgeoned, like Jefrey Dauhmer). Of corse we have Terry Nichols but he seems to have been out of any loops. Maybe I should do some research before I solicit your theories, or private mail me some of them. Thanks
You are correct and you point out the Romney problems, and I agree with you. The point is, IF Romney is the eventual candidate, I will still vote for him over 0bama.
Once again, we may have to hold our noses and vote or the lesser of two evils. I don’t like it but I’ll take Romney over 0bama any day of the week. I also believe Romney would have conservatives in his White House to keep him in line.
Why did Fox give George friggin’ loonatick air time? What an asshat...
