The Talk Shows
July 29th, 2012
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): Pre-empted by the Olympics.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day OConnor; Penn State President Rodney Erickson; Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney; Robert Gibbs, adviser to President Barack Obamas re-election campaign; Kevin Madden, adviser to Romneys presidential campaign.
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Sens. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H.
Most are saying it was blown out of context and actually the American people may understand he was just telling the truth about the concerns of the Olympics. It is likely a gaff that will help get him on the front page than do damage.
Pray for America
FYI, there are numerous Scalia YouTube video’s on the internet if you do a search using his name.
Thanks Alas, glad ya’ll liked it. Just some observations from Orygun.
He reminds me of my dear, departed stepfather. He had a wicked sense of humor, and enjoyed sending friendly gibes my way. He did it to toughen me for the outside world, and it worked.
He ran circles around Wallace, and it was fun to watch.
So far I’m impressed wit how Romney is playing the game. The very fact that the DBM has to go to such lengths to get anything at all on him,the olympic comments,really a tempest in a tea pot,and how the DBM overreacted let’s you know he’s doing a good job,IMHO.
For example, if you are not followers of politics like we are here, what would you think?
Here's what the politically ignorant think:
Politicians: They all lie, they all make gaffes, they all argue about it and therefore, pox on all of them!
Romney needs to stop answering these charges. Just ignore the question and move on to how he's going to rescue the US economy just like he did the Olympics. Meanwhile, let Obama go negative and lose like-ability points with the ignorant.
When Obamanation brings up lies and such, by all means, counter them aggressively and quickly, and then get back on message about the economy.
What's so easy and great about this is that it is true! Obama has screwed over the American economy with massive bailouts to banks, cronyism to unions and greenies, overbearing regulations, making it easier for the takers to take and continued class warfare on the job producers.
Romney will do the opposite, and the economy will soar again!
Re - religious freedom issue
Thngs are pretty hot around central Illinois —including the weather. We had a new pastor come in about a month ago. His first Homily after the first week he basically introduced himself was on the topic of religious freedom and all that’s been going on lately. His final punchline was — “Anybody who votes in this next election without educating themselves on the issues is an idiot”.
The bishop here has made the national news because he’s minced no words in his opposition to the mandates in Obamacare. He’s on the board at Notre Dame, and several of their communist faculty have demanded his removal.
The best part of all this is the letters to the editor in the newspaper. Every morning I can’t wait to read the comments from the morons who live around here - including some of them Catholics. You just can’t make this stuff up.
Unfortunately, 99 of 102 Counties will vote to get rid of this loser, but the Chicago area and Metro St. Louis will put him over the top in Illinois by a wide margin. Afterall - they can’t give up their freebees.
The ‘you didn’t build it’ and Romney/GOP/small business responses must be stinging Obama pretty badly.
Obama Team put out an ad with him complaining that Romney took his words out of context.
You are you going to believe? Big Ears or your lying ears?
Father Sam did climb up to the street’s edge and he did apologize profusely. He said, to the effect, that he must be careful not to look political in this thing and some such. I nodded and was nice and asked what I should not do. He said I should not take pics of him with a politician and I told him I would not.
Later, during that meeting in the Parish Life Center, the married priest went over the matter of Catholicism, religion and politics. He said that churches and politics mixing is not against any law but is part of the IRS code. He then mentioned Al Sharpton and the like.
I bring this up because right now, folks, the Catholic church is a idealogical mess. We’ve got parishioners walking out of masses when the officiating priest speaks of this mess with Obamacare.
Catholics, I dunno, some of them are verbal and loud and some want to just go to church, get communion, and go home, Obamacare be damned. Father Sam, intriguingly enough, is one of the loudest, shouting from that pulpit about our gubmint and its intent to walk all over our faith.
I think he’s great but again, parishioners get up and walk out, fooey on them, cowards.
So I dunno what got into my priest but I will conclude, in a fashion, that Catholics have schizophrenia, the whole concept of coalescing and fighting for its rights being knew.
Father Sam....I think he’s just as confused and somehow, as is often the case, I am in the wrong place at the right time.
Or some such.
You mean butbutbut isn’t running the show this week?
Frankly, Pat, you need to tell him what you told us.
Say it matter of factly, without emotion, and it will be up to him to decide if you’re being truthful or not. I could see how he’d be mistaken by the idea some of the pols are there because you asked them to, but tell him you knew nothing of that. If he decides you aren’t being honest after that, then he’s just not being fair.
Or as they say in the Northeast, Or-a-GONE.
The only fly in the ointment is that ozero’s handlers,in this case tiny time, Bernanke others have staged things to blow up in the second term regardless of who is in charge.
If the regime remains in charge its still someone else’s fault and the only solution remains more govt., more destruction of capitalism,more debt.etc., etc. If we are in charge guess who gets the blame.
Wow, good point about the majority of Illinois voting against OBama but the big urban areas wipe out the sane ones.
The Wilmington Bishop has been sending out letters, issuing press releases, in short there’s a push to get the Catholics around here thinking.
Some audience members booed at the mention of....TADA....who? JOE BIDEN! Remembering please he’s OUR guy, going on TV every Ash Wednesday to ostentatiously show his ashes, favoring abortion....and some shouted out about Nancy Pelosi.
It was a great night, Father Sam’s attack on me notwithstanding.
A nomination to sainthood might be necessary. It is certainly appropriate for anyone who can put up with Clinton Spokes
Whoops - I meant to say Metro East St. Louis. Lots of government freebees handed out there
Problem for the DBM is that when Romney becomes potus they are in jeopardy of not getting access. Kill their access and they will have to make stuff up even more than they already do. Never as good as the real truth.
He he! Far gone to OryGone!
Nobody in the country pronounces it correct, it is OryGun.
You’re lucky, actually. Our priest won’t mention it at all. Old Father Fran retired at 91 years old back in Octber, and now we have a new priest, Father Charles, a young, spry 72 year old.
Father Fran was a dyed-in-the-wool conservative, he even had a picture of George W Bush in the rectory, and spoke his mind about issues. Farther Charles, now, he won’t. Do note that this part of Alabama I live in is overwhelmingly conservative. Even the few democrats (mostly black) left are conservative.
But Father Charles only mentions that there are masses, etc for “Religious Freedom”. He never defines who is taking religious freedom away... Well, he did mention it as an overseas thing, but never mentions THIS country in that regards.
Well thanks AB. I suppose that the fact that all these politicians showed up, I dunno, Father Sam must have thought I had something to do with it.
We’ll see if the issue comes up again. But let me tell you of another scene, happened that same night.
After the initial shout and the apology, I was walking around, talking to people, that sort of thing. I chance to walk by the politico who just happened to run to fill Mike Castle’s seat in 2008, name is Glen Urquhart. He ran with Christine O’Donnell but didn’t get her notoriety. However Urquhart is a major politician around these parts, now running for a STATE senator position, same election district as my church.
Up to Urquhart walks Father Sam, he throws his arms over Urquhart’s shoulders and loudly talks and jokes around. I was standing by and Father Sam leans over to me and says something to the effect that’s he’s known Urquhart for many years and something about him being an Episcopalian. I dunno, I just dunno. But if Father Sam wanted to avoid politicians what the hey is he doing with all this love of one of Sussex county’s biggest politicos?
Those politicians showed up, as they do for many such events, and there was nothing stopping them. And Father Sam, witness example above but there were more, didn’t avoid them or anything.
You got me. I stand by my assertion that the Catholic church and its members are dealing with this administration’s attack on it and are just, at times, confused and I dunno, worried maybe.
Check this out I just saw it on FNC. Its just priceless!! About some clown who has been buying votes for years and thinks nothing of it!You gotta wonder just how widespread this stuff is!!
Here is yet another link to the same story.
Too much of the church has fallen for Social Justice which is another way of saying communism. It really goes against Christianity since the Word says we are to care for our brothers not the gummit.
Unfortunately the Church doesn’t take a stand against it for fear of losing their Dems.
Pray for America
Yeah I guess! Are there any “straight” search engines out there one could use?
In Liberal LALA Land, speaking the truth is a gaff.
I’ve heard a theme coming from 0zero, Democrats and the media. It’s that we tried Republican policies over the last decade and they didn’t work, and that 0zero’s policies are working but just need more time.
It’s all a lie but the Republicans on TV better learn to counter it so uninformed voters don’t start believing it.
Democrats are trying to destroy capitalism and free markets, not just winning an election. As bray indicated, vote for a free America.
Don’t know if it’s totally true but I did hear the states that are coming out of the recession all have Republican governors.
Father Sam, my nemesis of the hurt feelings, gives astounding lectures from the pulpit, almost a Brother Love type of thing, pounding the wood and mentioning the attack on our faith by “this administration”...he does not mince words. I state this as he is a priest I most admire for his refusal to be cowed. Once HE actually walked out on a mass, along with a bunch of others....I only heard about it but it was reported on the radio. He was mad at the boobs walking out and decided to show his anger.
Father Sam is no wallflower is what I’m saying here.
In fact, after going to a mass that had our other priest presiding, and hearing no mighty rhetoric as from Father Sam, I wrote him an email asking what happened.
Father Sam wrote me back and suggested that I ask the other priest my question as we all know his own self, in Brother Love fashion, didn’t back off the issue.
Well I just dunno but it was kind of neat to have all those acquaintances from the Republican party and my co-parishioners at the same place. It’s how I got put on something called the Salt and Light committee to help with voter registration.
And hey, everybody knew me and I will be so shallow as to say it was kind of nice.
But I didn’t plan it.
I've heard the same from business owners, whenever the subjects of prices or hiring come up, no matter the size of the company, it's always, we don't know ANYTHING until after the election.
I haven’t seen it yet. FNS comes on here at 9:00 MTZ, but the posts I’ve read all say Scalia ran circles around Wallace. I did see Wallace on FNC earlier and he was all praise for Scalia and the interview.
I’ve thought about that Rod, but I also believe the following to be true:
Nobody wants their business to fail. They want it to grow, expand, and to continue making a profit. However, as long as Obama’s in charge, there’s great fear his policies will do great harm to those goals.
The businessmen expects him to increase taxes. They expect him to increase regulations. Both of these hurt the profit making ability of those businesses. Now, unlike the CHARGES of the media democrats (same thing), businesses expect a certain level of fair regulation and taxing ( dems say we want none), but overdoing it is an absolute business killer. And that’s what we’re headed—or are at—under Obama.
Electing Romney, and let’s be clear about it—a Romney who will do as he says—will fix that right away. Just the promise of tax relief and regualtion relief will get the dollars flowing again, which will bring jobs and consumer confidence. This will see government tax revenues going up, not sideways or down.
In other words, this economy is in trouble because the Obama’s proclaimed policies hurt business. Take out Obama and what does that do on Day One?
Thank Bray, not me! :-)
Hello? Tap-Tap-Tap Is this thing on?
By the way, I hope other Freepers will contact the various networks as to who should be a moderator for the presidential debates and who should NOT be moderating.
Debbie Washerwoman Schultz now on TV Face the Nation. Husband calling out that she looks like she has snakes growing out of her head. I offered to tape it for him, husband says no thanks.
First thing she mentions how Romney insulted our “good friends” the Brits. NEVER do they show a clip of what Romney said because seriously, it was not offensive at all.
In fact I was impressed by Romney’s summary of London’s circumstances. He did not insult them, he gave a measured appraisal that a fellow who’s been in business would give.
Suddenly lightbulbs click over my marble head.
Y’all know that Obama HATES England, right? Sent back the bust of Churchhill lent to the Dubya admin. Been lying all week about the story of that bust but go with me, the Obama admin unceremoniously sent it back, didn’t want it.
So this is why the media got the meme to come down on Romney for his harmless comments! Now they can say, well we might have hurt their feelings with the Churchill bust but lookit Romney insulting the Olympics.
The Obama campaign is hurting so darn bad it’s really pathetic.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney
Badgering interviewer as expected, Romney does well. ABC keeps trying to get a sound bite on foreign policy. Romney ‘I believe the world benefits from American leadership.’
Now Wasserman is trying to say ‘he lacks’, ‘intelligence gaff’, ‘trying to roll back’. No thanks Democrat hack. Wasserman is claiming Romney should say his foreign policy, as she is disappointed there is no gaff in interview.
ABC trying to get mileage out of this ‘whimp’ magazine cover, it’s falling flat. You’d think a news magazine would want to make some intelligent analysis...obviously not even this one.
Don’t worry, it is normal to hit reply. I appreciate her compliment and know what she meant. Anybody see the Romney interview yet?
Son House has something right above your post.
Son House: More, please! Who interviewed Romney?
These guys truly have nothing new just tired old BS they are hoping the DBM will keep repeating to try and freeze our message out.
Madden was not fast enough or slick enough to point out to Gibbs that the reason GW's last two years went downhill so fast were due to his dem congress that were destroying housing As quick as they could by letting anyone who could breathe sign up for a home.
this fact is often ignored and needs to be brought up more since it is so pervasive in the huge destruction of wealth solely due to the Franklin Raines and Barney Franks of the world who insisted any crackhead should be able to buy a new house and banks got sued when they didn't let them buy and qualify for any mortgage do it and then sued again when the crackheads defaulted.
That odd media claiming a gaffe, yet Romney was successful in his Olympic endeavor, and his opinion on what he was told actually has value. Liberal media doesn’t realize a Republican President supports the very US Constitution that gives them the freedom to do the job they aren’t doing, report the truth. Or be a Democrat hack.
Tactics for 0bama, at least what I’m seeing today.
Domestic issues: We tried it their way and it didn’t work. Our way works if we give it more time.
Foreign policy: Don’t go with an unknown or someone without the experience I have and Romney’s gaffes.
Taxes: Tax the rich to pay for middle class tax cuts.
Healthcare: Give 0bamacare a chance and you can’t take the benefits away now! Voters like them.
They certainly didn’t inherit the 4.5% unemployment rate Bush averaged his 8 yrs as President. They didn’t inherit the recovery he engineered when he entered office even with an attack on our financial center. Look what Romney will inherit!
Pray for America
Just knowing that we have a commie in the head office of govt. is really disconcerting for most small business owners and holds back the flow of capital. Pouring in small business money starts everything. Jobs,investment, profits,hiring etc,basically the engine of capitalism will get restarted.
My small business is nearing the point of needing another person and I can’t do it for fear of DeathCare penalties. Not to mention you have to wait for Romney for the tax benefits. Why would anybody hire now? How many on this thread own small businesses??
Oh yeah, post your website for your company. Let Obozo know we are speaking from something he has never done or ever will do. At least I was a commie and know what he is about, unlike his bashing small businessmen.
