She kind of revealed it with that question, although she mostly didn't tick me off like Chrissy usually does.
Anybody else notice how Blondie framed the homosexual poll numbers. According to Gallup 51% want gay marriage and 13% would more likely vote for the President since he is pro homo. She ignored the 60% real vote margin and the 41% who said they would be less likely on the same Gallup poll.
Selective reporting as we will likely see all day.
I recommend everyone get on Twitter and tell them we are concerned about the economy. For example, Stephie wanted opinions on what we all thought about gay marriage. I told him I was sick of hearing about it and wanted to know whay they weren’t talking about jobs.
It doesn’t do any good to let them think that they are getting away with it. Go out there and fight! Use talk radio, letters to editor, twitter, comments sections on newspaper web sites! Mention it to your friends, as in “Do you notice how the president doesn’t want to talk about the economy and keeps pulling these distractions out?”
Get busy, folks!
Blondie asks the black guy (Wahn) how the gay president’s new position is affecting his popularity. He says it is sort of a negative and then gets to the real point...
Black voters hate that issue.
Happy Mother’s Day Everybody!
Thanks for your shares.
Hume just addressed the polls, says they can’t be trusted. Most state votes are FOR traditional marriage. Individuals MAY be telling polsters otherwise, but state votes reveal that gay marriage is NOT popular.
Brit Hume doesn’t trust the polling on gay marriage issue. Revealing Omama’s multiple flip-flops on this issue. (evolution)
Comments on the number of states where voters have rejected it. Paul Gigot echoing Brits comments. Says Obama has always favored gay rights (Larry Sinclair)
Hey I will give you a hundred bucks for that badge....
Juan is floundering and trying to find the right cliche to make it an equality issue. Lack of employment? Homosexuals make more money than straights. There are benefits to being a protected class in America.
lol. It is amazing ...
when they change positions on issues.
Stuffy Stephy of course the author or at least purveyor of the Republicans are against contraception "issue" which came totally out of the blue and now is touted by the hardcore left as if it were real.
And are media going to discuss: Why didn’t Congress wait to vote before a final version of the Volcker Rule? DoddFrank has been law since July 21, 2010, and we still don’t know what is in it.
Excellent catch. One that Rush mentions often that telephone polls are unreliable as hell on some issues,the gay stuff is certainly one of them.
Major Topic #2 for the Panel:
Romney Running with Scissors.
FOX panel discussing Romney’s treatment of cutting the “gay” kid’s hair in high school. Calling him a prankster.
Brit Hume says it was “hazing” much ado about not very much. “What kind of news judgement do these editors have?” Story handled ridiculously....Gigot: story was 5000 words about nothing.
C’mon, nobody was “gay” in the 60s. They were hippies.
Romney was just “kickin’ hippies’ asses and raisin’ hell”
Investopedia explains Volcker Rule
Named after former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volcker, the Volcker rule basically stops banks from doing their normal business (installment loans, residential mortgages, equity credit loans, deposit services) as well as trading on their own behalf.
The more of these red flag issues—gay marriage, the pipeline, student loan interest rates (!), Dream Act—that Comrade Obamsky takes on at this point the better off we’ll all be if he loses in November—it will translate into a referendum loss for ALL those issues as well as for his majesty.
These red flags could also drag many Demovik incumbents to defeat too.
The Republicans should spend the next 5 months just pounding the economic issues and let the Dems run increasingly wild Left over their landscape of phony baloney, trumped up “cultural” crap and the global warming idiocy.
Think football: the economic issues are the “rock” and the Republicans simply need to pound it right down their throats play after play after play.
Today’s NFL might be all flash-and-dash 5-wide passing but today’s politics calls for old time Woody Hayes up-the-gut running game.
Pound the rock, pound the rock, pound the rock.
And drinking that Wild Turkey liquor.
Happy Mothers Day to all of the female gender. We are knocking on the door of Sodom and Gemorrah. Will we walk across the threshold? We may. I refuse.
I vote for Blondie as a permanent replacement. She is far better in every way than RAT Wallace. And she’s probably a mother.
Oh crap, she just announced he’ll be back next week.
