February 26th, 2012
Guests to be interviewed today on major television talk shows:
FOX NEWS SUNDAY (Fox Network): Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney; Gov. Mitch Daniels, R-Ind.
MEET THE PRESS (NBC): GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum; Govs. Jerry Brown, D-Calif., and Jan Brewer, R-Ariz.
FACE THE NATION (CBS): Govs. Martin O'Malley, D-Md., and Chris Christie, R-N.J.
THIS WEEK (ABC): Santorum; Govs. Rick Snyder, R-Mich., and Deval Patrick, D-Mass.
STATE OF THE UNION (CNN): Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Lindsey Graham, R-S.C.; Govs. John Hickenlooper, D-Colo., and Scott Walker, R-Wis.; Robert Gibbs, adviser to President Barack Obama's re-election campaign.
True, Morgan. THe former gov of MI, Engler, started to point out on ABC the bogus numbers with people just falling out of the job market.....but he was cut off by another panelist.
MTP, Santorum is asked about some deal between Paul and Romney.....santorum responds that Paul is running ads against Santorum in MI, and yet Paul isn’t even running there - what does that say?
Gregory asks Santorum about “snob” comments regarding obama saying every American should to go to college. Gregory asks is your vision that everyone shouldn’t have the opportunity? Santorum points out skilled trades, etc. People have different strenghts/interest/skills......these other skills are valuable. (lol........Santorum should be able to win this argument....anyone hired a plumber lately? It ain’t cheap, and their skills are pretty important.)
How did I miss that? Really?
How did I miss that? Really?
Face the nation to have two governors debating on the “merits” of sodomite marriage.
You did fine. Thanks for the thread. Escape safely.
Gregory asks Santorum about incentivizing manufacturers through tax policies, but being unwilling to extend unemployment....isn’t that hypocritical? (I’m not sure I get the connection, maybe I heard the question wrong?)
On Santorum’s comments about the JFK speech,
Santorum says his biggest problem is with the first sentence of that speech where JFK says “I believe in America where the sperartion of church and state is absolute.” (paraphrased) Santorum says this is anethetical to the first amendment. People should be able to come into the public square and affect public policy.
Santorum defends his positions as HIS values, not something he wants to force on Americans. Says he talks about other issues far more, but media is pulling up speeches from years ago and analyzing them. Santorum says unlike other politicians, he actually answers questions when asked.
Great essay as usual. It’s amazing how the media and hollywood libs have poisoned women (and girls) against reality when it comes to abortion.
They almost think it’s the Right Thing to do and not that important, as in, getting a tattoo or your nose pierced or getting an abortion.
That’s why I approved of Governor Perry mandating an ultra sound for girls contemplating abortion. It horrified the libs, but if girls are gonna do this, they need to at least face that there is a little person in their body.
I do think the whole abortion on demand thing and the vast number of abortions performed undermines the moral fibre of the country.
I tried to explain this at my (liberal) Bible class but people just thought I was crazy. I wish I were more eloquent, like you Bray.
By the way, you might look into Rep James Langford US Congressional House District 5 in Oklahoma. Young guy, used a lot of twitter and facebook. He won without spending a ton of money.
Santorum is on his game this morning...rippin’ David Hussein Gregory and not backing down.
He looks refreshed, energized and in control.
Has a car in the Indie 500 today.
Although I’m still hoping Newt can recover some momentum, I also hope Santorum does well.
He received a body blow at the debate with the nasty little troll and his puppet master double teaming him and putting him into the position of constantly defending stuff he’d done.
Those on this forum who are gleeful about this better think twice, the person benefiting from a Rick S. downfall is not Newt but Romney.
I’m taping it, hoping Santorum does well. Also hoping he stays calm but a little more stern. He smiled way too much during his last outing on a Sunday show.
He should stay affable but not smile through any obvious sh*t that’s thrown at him.
very very accurate...
...GLAD RICK IS NAILING PAUL ON HIS “DEAL” WITY ROMNEY.
Santorum is saying more and more things I like. I totally agree with him that not every child should go to college. The cost/benefit ratio is getting worse as colleges get more expensive and jobs get more scarce.
High School used to offer great trade courses. They don’t anymore. Irving High used to have a auto mechanic and body work class that all the teachers took their cars to. The work was great, done by students but supervised by experts.
They also had a course that built a house every year. The house was perfect and always sold for a good price.
Those students didn’t even need to go to trade school...they got it in high school for no extra cost. Whatcha bet they’re earning better money today than a lot of college grads.
The problem has been that cartels like OPEC can raise and lower the supply affecting the price of oil. Demand is continuing to increase due to emerging markets like China and India, which are becoming more affluent, and an annual increase of about 50 million people a year in the world's population. OPEC can lower the price of oil so it makes the domestic production of US oil less attractive economically. Hopefully, fracking can lower the production costs so that we will be less vulnerable to the vagaries of the global market.
Newt is dead on on so many issues, it hurts that he lost the momentum. Maybe he’ll have some influence anyway.
Ann Coulter on F&F this morning was really nasty, can’t stand the sight of her anymore. She is still attacking Rick Perry, can’t get him out of her mind, she’s saying the old lie — that he’s soft on immigration.
She’s riding on her own former coattails and I hope she drops off the radar soon.
Watching a bit of Bob Scheiffer, Face the Nation. Bob is interviewing Chris Christie, talking about Santorum. LOLOLOL, Bob is totallly blown away with everything Santorum has said. He can’t believe a candidate can say these things. Santorum might as well be an alien (as Rush previously mentioned). Brings up the snob comments.
I agree with you altura...have you heard some of the degrees kids are graduating with? They are so off the wall, there is no thought about how it applies to the job market...but hey, it’s a degree!
Skilled trades are a valuable skill. You’re always going to have a skill to sell unlike other professions. I agree, it’s a shame these classes aren’t provided in highschool anymore.
They were calling it a mistake on Fox this morning also.
As I understood it, it was not a mistake but a justified execution of the Korans in question. These books had been already ‘sullied’ by the fact that muslims were writing in them and passing them back and forth to pass messages.
The messages probably related to terrorist activity.
Once the Koran has been ‘sullied’ it may be disposed of in the same way that we respectfully dispose of Bibles and our flag, by burning.
Calling it an accident kind of cheapens it if, in fact, it was an action as I described.
Thanks Morgan, I expect we will use a lot of internet. We have developed an entire new system we call the Old School Campaign system. We have nobody running after our establishment candidate lost the special election. I would be the sacrificial lamb, but the scary part is I think we can win.
Pray for America
The media is trying to help the Democrats by manufacturing issues where none exists. Their hope is to find something, anything, to get the conversation away from real issues and Democrats positions.
Until we destroy the real enemy which is the Global Warming cult we will always have overpriced energy. GW is costing us between 1 and 2 dollars per gallon and will be doubling your electric bill in 3 years.
Pray for America
after Obamer wins the Republican party shall essentially be no more.
true..only the Establishment Party shall rule/survives
elitists and the serfs...the “people” and the “trash”...
so true skin. But maybe it’ll benefit us Conservatives cuz then the GOP will be insignificant and we can finally start our own party. How ‘bout calling it WE THE PEOPLE?
Was it Newt or Santorum who described all the mandates the gasoline people have to obey. There are dozens of requirements for this mix of gas here, another mix there, another mix in summer, etc.
All useless and all expensive and all driving up the cost of gasoline. Just eliminating those mandates alone would save a ton of money.
Why is Coulter still attacking Perry????? I can’t understand what happened to her.
Both governors, D - Maryland, R - NJersey, agree Santorum is too extreme. lol, the Dem, thought we were past this whole contraception issue. Says there are now exceptions for religious institutions, obama came out looking like the reasonable person on this issue. Says it would be nice to see the party of Lincoln reemerge in the Repub. party, not this extreme right wing segment that has emerged.
My, my, he’s Sooooo thoughtful with his advice for the Republican party. (note-to-self, send Maryland governor a lovely thank you note as soon as this show is over)
No, you’re right. They were using these Korans to pass messages back and forth and that little tidbit kind of escapes the Lamestream.
This whole Afghan thing, serious, I think it’s all orchestrated by this administration.
Why you ask?
First, go with me on this, the Obamer admin likes to create these drams...ie birth control and guns to Mexico, as a mean to change/mold public opinion. And they’re quite good at it. The Repubcs do not have a clue.
All you got to do....first, get me something to make the Afghanis riot, or their Taliban contingent. Head of army says....”well we got some Korans we threw out to burn. We could drop this info on someone in the underground over there.”
So they do because how else did this information get out?
So a whole bunch of folks needing a few bucks go out and riot and scream for maybe ten bucks a day, something like that.
The head Afghani shakes his head to America...”hey, nothing I can do, you got to apologize.”
So Obamer apologizes, as was the plan. America is supposed to get all scared of these rampaging Afghani citizens and demand that we get out of there before they come over here and riot.
Boom, Obamer pulls out of Afghanistan, something you know he desperately wants to do.
Badaboom.....he’s got more money in the public coffers that he can figure out how to re-route to his campaign....there’s always a way to do that.
It’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
Because silly, stupid idjits rioting in the streets over a burnt book aren’t scaring any darn body.
We all know it’s a joke.
I’m perfectly okay with calling the replacement party for the Republican....the....DRUMROLL....
Fox News has completely jumped the shark for Romnuts.
They are unwatchable now.
And have you noticed that all “panels” in any network consist of pro Mittens slobberers who end up dissing Rick ad nauseum, nodding in agreement that his campaign is a disaster and Romney is “in it for the long haul” and the only candidate who can beat Obama? LOL
Sometimes the rabid token Democrat ends up being the one who is most objective and sane. Never thought I’d say that!
Bring on the brokered Convention! Yes, I’m talkin’ to you Tokyo Rove.
“Good Lord, even the MSM is in the tank for romney...wonder why??? maybe cause he would be a weak horse to Obama?”
Ding Ding Ding!!!
O’Malley is a jerk, all style no substance. All he does is look for the next office, another narcissist.
Go for it!
I’ll come to Oregon and vote for you if you know of any local democrats who can break voting rules (hint: ALL of them).... ;-)
I hear ya! The GOP controlled Legislature in AL (1st time in a 100 years)is trying to gut the immigration bill.
Great graphic, Diogenesis! Pretty much tells it like it is. I wish this graphic appeared in every MSM outlet in the United States.
“How did I miss that? Really?”
She endorsed him a month ago here in the AZ MSM.
“Face the nation to have two governors debating on the merits of sodomite marriage.”
How does what two adults do in their bedroom affect you or I in any way?
Just sayin’. ©¿©¬
Re Coulter continuing to attack Governor Perry after he’s been out of the race for so long: Governor Perry is supporting Newt and apparently Coulter believes that Newt can come back and beat Romney.
It’s just possible that the skank Rat judges screwing around with Texas’s primary time may have backfired on them.
Santorum is cutting Romney’s percentage of delegates and if it keeps up (with Newt still getting some) Romney won’t have enough.
If Newt does well enough in the Southland and manages to get through to people in the Midwest, the enormous number of Texas delegates might just be enough to put Newt through with Governor Perry’s help. He can certainly make sure Newt gets good exposure as opposed to the careful and deliberate ignoring of him elsewhere.
Frankly, it gives me an emotional boost to think that she and her RINO pals are STILL terrified of Newt. They wouldn’t be if they thought he was down for the count IMO.
OTOH she might just have gone totally psycho loony...
I have heard the same things that you have WRT the burning of the korans. Apparently they are desecrated if marked on as the prisoners were doing and the korans are REQUIRED to be destroyed and burning is the approved way.
I gotta wonder why these “brilliant” “news” people with all the sources they have don’t know things a little ‘ole regular, ordinary person like me knows.
Or, more likely, they DO know better.
I think they are terrified of Newt. He is so much smarter than Obama and wouldn’t take any crap off of him. He would be formidable if Obama dared to debate him, which I doubt.
Agreed. I have some disagreements with Rick, and I have some disagreements with Newt. They’re both far better than Romney.
Uf that was the case...why didn’t our brilliant military and state dept get this out>???
I don't have to.
I know what you mean.
I agree with you. All sentient beings do.
“The US is the world’s largest oil importer by far.”
Yet, we are now exporting gas to other nations.
Sodomite sex spreads deadly diseases. Ever heard of the word AIDs. AIDs will be eradicated when man learns the anus is for exit, not entry.
Umm. Maybe because our wonderful and admirable troops are "led" by political whores (with the concomitant ROEs designed to get them killed as fast as possible) while the State Dept. is now "led" by Hitliary KrinkDong and other Progressive (Commie) ahoes who slavishly follow "former" Nazi collaborator Soros' directions on a path to our total defeat and destruction IMO.
For the Record: John Bolton on Greta Friday carefully explained the rules of desecration and how these korans had been descrated and the proper and required destruction of desecrated korans--which is exactly what was done!!!
We may as well ask why Karzai et al are not explaining to their citizens what actually happened... or why we're still dealing with him!
TEA did away with those types of classes about 20 years ago. Of course, they did not do away with the kids that needed those classes.
The trade school in the city my mother grew up in was a test school, turned out some of the best machinists I ever met, no pass the test no go, very tough.
I’ve gotten to the point that I tune most of the pundits out and all of the media/press.
There will be more than a few surprises in November as the so-called “dead” tea party raises its head once again and gets more candidates elected.
