Wow McCain growing something between his legs with DNC Dave!! Dave changes the topic from Benghazi realllly quick. He’s a master of deception. McCain of course falls for it since he is a pubbie and does not really know how to control or oppose the DBM.
Rand Paul on FOX - Even with sequestor, spending will go up. It’s a cut in the rate of growth in spending.
Wallace asks Paul about Graham comments on drones. Paul syas the CIA and DOD is not allowed to act on American soil. obams says he doesn’t “intend” to use drones to kill Americans. Paul says\that’s not good enough.
primarily wants answers about American soil killings.
Brennan has said obama’ authorization for (action in Afghanistan - I think that’s what he said) has no georgraphical limit. Hasn’t answered whether that means the US.
asked about Rove - party shouldn’t be deciding who the candidate is. Have competitive primaries to get the best candidate.
On obama’s plan in the SOTU and spending. obama has claimed he’s reduced the deficit, things won’t increase spending plenty ot times while our debt keeps going up.
On the immigration reform plan proposed by the Senate - Paul sayts he supports immigration “reform” in general; he’ll support it IF the Senate gets a report that shows the border IS secure...every year for five years and vote whether they accept those conclusions. WON’T do it based on obama’s promises.
Wallace asks about how serious Paul is in running in 2016. IOW, are you doing this “to make a point”? Paul ssys if he wins, it will be to win it. Won’t make a decision until 2014.
Zero. And if Rubio is running against Hillary he will get far less than 40%. Hispanics are natural Dem constituents with 50% out of wedlock birthrates, the highest school dropout rates of any group, and high dependency on welfare programs.
Husband gets same message. I get it on Kindle. Only on Freerepublic and Lucianne.
Both of these sites are conducting a fundraising type of thing, if that’s a clue.
BUT...when you click on the “TAKE ACTION NOW” button it does nothing at all. Being on Kindle, I don’t think it’s a virus. There’s something Comcast or Xfinity is finding on these sites but it’s an all botched up thing as Xfinity arranges for free internet for the poor and cell phones for everybody as was a condition of the sale of NBC to them.
We need to remember Rubio is a Cuban/American not a Mexicon. Cubans are here because they hate communists.
Besides one can never underestimate Charisma. Reagan had it Palin has it, Rubio has it. Its better that American Express.Don't leave home without it!
We have another huge problem. Lots of voters are now voting Dem/Santa instead of theology. If the dems can continue to use our resources to buy votes for their side we will be in jeopardy for some time.
Wallace plays Leviin’s clip talking about Rove - “He’s up there with that stupid whiteboard....bring on your white board, we’re ready”. LOL, GO Levin!
Rove gloms on to the Paul candidacy and Rubio. (wasn’t that AFTER the primaries?)
Brings up Todd Aiken - stupid. Wallace says there were plenty of bad “establishment” candidates. Rove brings up Indiana/Murdoch. Rove blames Murdoch’s statements and Lugar being out of touch and not stepping aside. (Lugar wasn’t just out of touch - he didn’t represent Indiana Republicans as well as he could)
Woodward -says - something - haltingly -—
Did Obama talk to anyone? And, if so, at what times?
ironically when polled many of those Hispanics who are here,have American citizenship and jobs are also in favor of strong borders.
11 million “law breakers” are not going to be deported. He supports them staying if they work and don’t leech off the state and but an annual report being voted on by the congress.
if you dont like he ideas what do you suggest ?
A hundred miles south of zero/Rush’s casa its 49 degrees with a 25-30 knot wind wind chill waaay down for us.Too cold to play golf. Zero will be swapping bathhouse stories with his buds today.
Do y’all really think NONE of those senators knew about that perv in NJ-Mendenez?
Guy is as corrupt as they come but so okay, they all have their pork barrell projects.
But he goes to Dominican Republic and has sex with 16 year old prostitutes?
Do NOT tell me this is a legal thing, it’s no matter. A 16 year old child? Does Mendenez think those precious young adolescents, no doubt forced into this life by those in charge of them, enjoy having sex with him?
My bigger question....and everyone, take a shot at an answer...
DOES ANYONE REALLY THINK NOT A SINGLE OTHER SENATOR, INCLUDING THE REPUBLICAN ONES, DIDN’T KNOW THIS ABOUT MENDENEZ?
They protect their own. They are of the Political Elite and they are entitled to sex with young girls.
And dear Lord, what the hell is Chris Matthews the nut job doing on Meet the Press?
Kim Stossel on FOX - why WOULDN’T Republicans play politics with the Hagel nomination?
Juan Williams says what they are doing in petty. It’s unprecedented. We need a Sof Defense. They don’t have the votes to block his nomination.
Wallace asks Woodward if he’s surprised that we don’t know what obama was doing and why Administration still refuses to give Congress the FBI interviews of those on the ground in Benghazi. Woodward says the nomination process isn’t the place to get these answeres. Wonders if dem’s wonder if Hagel is the best person to be SOD.
Ditto. We're not changing course by trying to get more votes out of the "free stuff" crowd. Unfortunately, the only way things will change is when life becomes painful for enough of the "free stuff" voters. I think that means a Weimar Republic-style societal collapse -- at least in urban areas -- when the EBT cards stop working, or they work, but a Big Mac costs $200.
Anybody else think this Gavin guy is light in the loafers?
Wallace plays clips of both Hoyer and Boehner on the Sequestrastion. Hoyer blames republicans; Boehner blames president.
Wallace asks Woodward who’s idea was it? Woodward says the Whitehouse. (Wow, I’m shccked he told the truth on this one!)......but then he goes on to say it’s a stupid policy.
Kim Stassel - Wallace asks about whether it will happen. She says very likely because obama won’t deal with entitlements. Dem’s only solution is tax hikes....Republicans aren’t interested. Says there is some latitude in how it’s implemented. Says obama/administartion is making it as painful as possible.
Juan - says it will hurt the economy.
