Amen, Miss Marple. God Bless America.

We’ll miss you.

I’ve tried to take sabbaticals from free republic when things got a little vicious here, but the longest one lasted 3 days.

It’s an addiction, but better than meth amphetimine, I guess.

Drop in when you can, and have a wonderful time in England. I’ve always wanted to go there ... and I speak the language... sort of.

Good analysis John.

Looks like Newt did pretty good with the indy vote last night.

Christina van den Wacko is all enthralled about the occupiers. Evidently, they are her kind of America. She's a bad trip now on ABC,

I don’t think Perry would take veep. I’ve heard him disparage it and he has a good job already in politics.

There is a possibility (in my mind) that he would take a high cabinet post if he thought he could be effective.

“I kinda doubt that Newt’s unfavorables rise to the level cited by Brit Hume yesterday.”

Brit and most other FNS types have spent the last 2 days badmouthing Newt. Hard left turn and losing my viewership rapidly. Who can we turn to for “fair/balanced”?

Trip the best candidate.

Newt can and will recover many of the naysayers.

Since Mitt is 0-light he is our only hope!

Once again Christina van den gargle says that we don't need oil for the oil companies to benefit from but green energy.

These people have no concept of reality at all only Marxist theology.

With Fox News hosts Ann would sit,

Waving her arms and screaming a fit.

But her fury was reversed,

With an appliance from her purse

While it buzzed, she was moaning: "Oh, Mitt...!"

I think its a lot simpler than that. Ann has always been an attack dog...lots of hyperbole.

If she’s your attack dog, she’s the best.

If she’s attacking you, she’s a b*tch.

That doesn’t mean that I don’t agree or disagree with her on political matters..I just know what she really is and take that into consideration.

She’s wrong on ROmney, but she’s still the same nasty Ann.

Thanks, just really figured out what the Delphi Method was, and when applying it to legislation being passed such as a health care fix; say that yes every one agrees there is a problem, but the conclusion they are supposed to reach is that the Affordable Health Care bill was the right solution, and any other solution was discarded and maligned as being from someone who didn’t want people to get medical attention at all.

Dr Dean Edel said it best (paraphrased) ‘if you want the best health care, it is going to be expensive’, that observation alone would omit affordable as being the best option.

Re unfavorables: I'm guessing you both have read the many statements here on FR where people basically say, "I don't have to like him to vote for him".

Based on the high unfavs and the also high vote percentage, SC voters agree. I suspect, given our current situation, that a whole lot of Americans share that view.

I heard that exchange and like you, it gave me pause.

BUT...lookit, you really can’t have our guys trashing the lawfully elected president too awful much. There’s got to be a mid-ground between McCain praising him God almighty and calling him a nasty b*st*rd.

Newt called him a man who governs against everything America was founded on. That was good enough. I daresay most Americans...yay even the precious Independents, agree on.

Just an observation: A couple of times during past debates, Santorum became animated and passionate, and he received audience support. His problem seems to be the rest of the time he does not seem to fire up potential supporters in the base.

I, like others on FR, was shocked by Britt Hume last night! I’ve always enjoyed him and thought him to be fair and he definitely disappointed me last night. If he was going to quote the poll #s about favorability/unfavorability it would have been nice if he had cited the poll and what day it was taken. When I heard the results he quoted and heard the exit poll results of the SC voters it made me think he was quoting an older poll (probably one taken prior to last Monday). In addition, w/o knowing who took/released the poll and who they polled (e.g., likely voters, registered voters, % of Dims,Pubs, Indies) I’m taking it w a grain of salt right now.

I’m sure the elites on both sides of the aisle & media elites will do everything they can to spout the talking points given to them to talk about how awful, mean & unelectable Newt is hoping to drive public opinion down more. Obviously, some folks will fall for it, but if Newt keeps on campaigning and debating like he has been, I think he’ll do fine. Plus, let’s face it, many folks are sick and tired of the elites in DC and the media and the Bamster and aren’t buying what they keep trying to sell us (e.g., push down our throats). We’re sick of the lies and Newt seems to be telling us the truth (refreshing!). I guess only time will tell (with all of us Tebowing through at least mid-Nov). While this is probably the most important election of our lifetimes, it’s probably going to be one of the nastiest and fraud-ridden ones as well.

I linked to Will’s discussion of ‘Romneyness’ above. Here’s another similar article from Byron York (I like him and thought this was a good article) about Romney’s not having the ability to connect with people and Newt’s ability to do so, even though Romney seems to stage ‘perfect’ events & Newt not so much. Newt listens & connects and has great answers.

Why Gingrich won — Why Romney lost
Byron York - Washington Examiner
COLUMBIA, SC — They won’t say it publicly — they don’t want to appear churlish or disrespectful on a night they took a serious beating — but it’s no exaggeration to say that even after losing the South Carolina primary to Newt Gingrich, members of Mitt Romney’s circle find it absurd — almost crazy — that the former House speaker has even a ghost of a chance of becoming the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.

Just a few days ago, many commentators were suggesting that Romney was likely to win South Carolina, and when he did, the GOP nomination would be his. Now Romney has been soundly rejected in the first primary in the South, the rock-solid base of the Republican Party. What happens next, in Florida, is unclear.

big snip>

Gingrich’s success here in South Carolina shows more than just a skepticism toward establishment Republicanism. It also shows a hunger for real substance in the campaign, for a candidate who will talk to voters and give them more than phrases like “I believe in America.” Mitt Romney’s team of seasoned campaign professionals may not think Newt Gingrich has any business playing a deciding role in the race. But they better believe it, and they better take seriously what the Gingrich challenge represents — before it’s too late.

Delegate count notwithstanding (and JMHO), the BIGGEST losers in last night’s voting were the media. Including some of those who’ve packaged themselves as Conservative...

....judging by Coulter’s reaction, they’re just coming to that realization.

Er, there ain't no such thing a “inert Mercury”.

Elemental liquid Mercury is pretty stable unless you heat it and form a vapor. It doesn't go around attacking other compounds and reacting with them (unlike Chlorine).

If you allow an acid to act on it, or something, then it becomes toxic.

The whole ban on mercury thermostats, switches, mirrors, thermometers etc is just another big hoax.

The highly toxic fluorescent bulb is whole different matter.

God sometimes enlightens me; If your the media (subordinate facilitator) and follow the lead, you get Republicans like Maverick McCain and Lindsey Graham to manipulate the discussion in the desired direction, then use some Democrats to isolating and demean opposing viewpoints. Those who are running the shows compile the final agenda for discussion.

The media suffer from groupthink. They all tend to process information and events through the same prism much the same way as doctors treat backaches according to their specialties. Surgeons want to operate, chiropractors want to twist, pull and push, while naturalists want to give you herbal tea and a massage.

If Obama gets a fairly good bump out of it, watch out for the MSM/Dems to remake him into version 2.0 by November

Any bump Zero gets will be because of the media, created by the media out of whole cloth. There is nothing substantial left for Zero to get a bump out of, unless he stands up and repudiates everything he and democrats have done to date, and promises to start dismantleing what dems have worked to build up to now.

— and he will be difficult to defeat. You will hear that mantra until after the third or fourth recount, unless it is a total blow out, in which case, we will be angry white males clinging to our guns and bibles.

Yes, and plenty of leftist idiots in the debate in "comments" following the article. I especially like the winning point on the pro-side, that the complaining farmers have already done a pretty good job of depleting and contaminating the Ogallala Aquifer with agricultural practices.

This basically consists of injecting anhydrous ammonia at the well head and then spraying it into the air over the monoculture corn crop....millions of gallons every day throughout the growing season.

They've done far more damage to the water supply than any pipeline breach could cause.

Watched a wee bit of all the pathetic Sunday News Shows.

I had to ask forgiveness from The Lord after screaming vulgarities at Joe Scarborough on MTP. This guy has got a lot of nerve to question anybodies Conservative credentials!

Joe Scarborough sold out long ago on any kind of Conservative thinking...He is such a scumbag, I do not even know where to start?

It should have been Sarah Palin last night, but it`s not, so Newt is the best we have,but for Scarborough to be talking about who or who is not Conservative, is just outrages.

Katrina Vandernoodle got away with saying that the liberal media claim, is just a myth. Not a peep out of George Will to correct her, not surprized,Will sold out years and years ago to be the ABC token “Conservative”.
