    CNN Starting Point is horrible!!! Soledad should be next to go.

    TelePrompTer is not going to help The Chose One win any debates.

    Oh Oh :-)

    “today Mitt talked about Bain”

    That is because the Dems aired a new commercial targeting OH & MI on Bain closing down a company in those states.

    The concept to just ignore it is one of the things that killed McCain. If you do not protest then it must be true. Bad juju :twisted:

  • usnretiredx2

    Hey USMC E-9 are you still a peeking in from time to time :?:

  • mike

    About four years ago I was watching Chris Matthews. The surge in Iraq was in full force. Casualities in Iraq were way down. Matthews was spitting bullets, angry at the apparent sucess of the operation. He went to commerical. When he came back on air he was all smiles. I wondered what had changed. Across the bottom of the screen breaking news FIVE US SOLIDERS KILLED IN IRAQ. Matthews appeared relieved and happy when he said “wow five soliders killed in Iraq unbelivable.
    I know I wrote this once before but I want as many people to see it as possible. Matthews is a reprehensable human being. If the Taliban were to surrender tomorrow I would be happy even if meant another four years of President Obama. This should not be a liberal or conservative issue. We should all stand together against rats like Matthews. He is the worst of the worst.

    Confusion in Egypt Leaves U.S. Scrambling

    WASHINGTON—The sudden emergence of complications with Egypt’s democratic transition caught the Obama administration by surprise, and officials barely hid expressions of dismay as they scrambled for information.

    “There can be no going back on the democratic transition called for by the Egyptian people,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said.

    For months, the White House and State Department have hailed successive steps toward democratic rule in Egypt, even setting aside concern over the overwhelmingly Islamist tilt of the country’s new leaders.

    And once again we had no idea. We so smart :twisted:

    Coming to a news channel near you Arab Spring II, watch to see what the US bumbles thru now :!:

  • OldO

    I try to watch some MSNBC every day, just to hear what they have to say. I always hold the remote in one hand (for a quick channel change) and I hold my nose with the other. The later in the day it gets, the freakier the host. For the record, CNN is simply unwatchable.

  • usnretiredx2

    Here is what I saw as the kicker

    “even setting aside concern over the overwhelmingly Islamist tilt of the country’s new leaders”

    2 years ago Hillary could have walked the streets by herself, could she have done that yesterday, no way.

    The wife has been in and out of that country when she wasin the military. Her current employeer asked her if she wanted to do some training classes there about 3 months ago. I told her no way in hell.

  • mike

    Matthews was rooting for our soliders to die to further his politics. U.S. Military members I wanted you to know.

  • mike

    On lighter note where in the world is Sgt. Ed Shultz?

  • Letmethink

    Loved Michelle M. She is tough and does not back down. Have to say that Juan became somewhat bearable after the NPR mess but he seems to be drifting back way way way left. They will slap him down again if he dares to forget the talking points.

  • mike

    When do you think MSNBC folds? The over/under is one year.

  • Coffee Steve

    I told her no way in hell.

    Smart Man.

  • mike

    I am taking the under. I’m thinking Obama might lose. If he loses, after what happened in Wisconsin that maybe the end of MSNBC.

    The other school of thought is MSNBC would turn there attention towards destroying Rommney. I don’t think that will work. Destroying Bush was much more appealing to their viewers.

    I still don’t know my theres.’Is it their or is it there. I just don’t care, so their…so there

  • douche baggins

    msnbc will be useful after romney and the house take over. only there will be no check n balance from the left when the right starts to spend.

  • twins fan
  • usnretiredx2


    I am not a MSNBC fan. Do not like it one bit. Now in saying that MSNBC will be here for some time. It is not going anywhere. As long as they are making money they will not fade away. If they start to really lose money they may change the players some but not much. They are not paying their key player as much as FOX so their bottom line is less so their viewer ship can be less.

    Sorry :!:
