    @ DB My response and thoughts about you.



  • mike

    I haven’t been watching FOX much lately. I am watching CNN. I don’t agree with there politics but they have to have someone show up in their ratings.

    I listen to a lot of the progreesives complain about FOX. They think FOX has a monoploy on the news. That reminded me of a story.

    I once asked a bookie if he made money on horse races. He pointed down at his paper and he said,”See this guy he got that horse, I got all the rest.”

    Progressives we have FOX news, you got all the rest.

    Daily Caller Reporter Too Busy To Talk To Wash. Post — But Not For Hannity

    Earlier today, Washington Post media blogger Erik Wemple wrote of his efforts to interview the Daily Caller’s Neil Munro about his heckling of President Obama, only to hear back from Munro that he was “too busy with health-care, etc.”
    But Munro was not too busy, however, for a cozy conversation with Sean Hannity on his radio show today. Hannity gave Munro ample space to tell his “version of things,” in which he admitted it was “technically … correct” that he interrupted the president. Hannity performed his usual routine, in which he gives conservatives who are in media messes plenty of airtime to explain away their problems. Hannity even prompted Munro to agree with him that the heckling was merely “mistimed.”
    Hannity said during the appearance that Munro will appear on his Fox News show later this evening, presumably for more of the same treatment.

    Busted!!!! Even a Fox News anchor called his behavior unprofessional.

    Fox Hosts Hate Group Leader To Attack New Immigration Policy
    Today, the Fox “straight news” program America Live hosted Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), to discuss the legality of President Obama’s new immigration policy, which will potentially exempt certain young undocumented immigrants from deportation and allow them to work here legally.

    *Russia prepares to send warships to Syria

    The chess game begins

    *Democratic W.Va. governor won’t attend convention

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Democratic West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says he won’t attend the party’s national convention, citing serious problems with President Barack Obama.

    Hmmmmm…wouldn’t have anything to do with Coal would it? :-)

    Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Corrects Previous False Report About EPA “Drones”


  • Jeff

    GOP too busy to focus on creating jobs for unemployed Americans…. Why??

    The 944 reproductive rights bills they are trying to pass in the USA are keeping them too busy.


  • mike

    Munro was a rude. He should have waited for the President to finish his comments.

    He would have been haled as a hero if he were a liberal reporter and he yelled out a question at a Republican President. There is glaring double standard in these situations.

    Fox Marks UN Earth Summit By Denying Global Warming

    As world leaders gather for the UN’s Rio+20 Earth Summit this week in Brazil, Fox is taking the opportunity to once again deny the threat of climate change. Here’s David Asman on Fox Business claiming “it’s getting colder”:

  • Jeff

    Bravo Republicans on nominee that can’t take a position.

    1. Romney won’t say whether he would undo Obama’s decision to end deportations of DREAM-eligible immigrants. Romney and his campaign passed up numerous opportunities over the weekend to say whether he agreed with the substance of the Obama administration’s order to stop deporting some young undocumented immigrants and whether a President Romney would rescind the order, saying only, “We’ll look at that — we’ll look at that setting as we– as we reach that.”
    2. Romney won’t say whether he’d support the Paycheck Fairness Act. Romney repeatedly dodged questions about whether he’d support the Paycheck Fairness Act, a bill to crack down on wage discrimination and close the wage gap between men and women. His campaign didn’t respond to five requests by the conservative Washington Times seeking his stance on the bill.
    3. Romney won’t specify which tax loopholes he’d close. Asked yesterday which tax deductions he would eliminate to offset his massive proposed tax-cuts for the rich, Romney refused to offer any specifics on a plan that he has admitted is so vague it cannot even be scored, saying only, “We’ll go through that process with Congress.”
    4. Romney won’t say which federal agencies he’d eliminate. At a private fundraiser, Romney reportedly told donors he would eliminate or combine “a lot of departments in Washington,” but that he was “probably not going to lay out just exactly which ones are going to go.” Why? Because he feared telling the voters his plans before the election might hurt his political chances, just as it did in his 1994 Senate race.
    5. Romney won’t say whether he supports the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Romney’s campaign refused to say whether he would have signed the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, a law that helps women hold employers accountable for discriminating in the pay practices based on gender. Romney said, “I’m not going to go back and look at all the prior laws and say had I been there which ones would I have supported and signed.”
    6. Romney won’t say whether he’d support full reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act. Offering only general support for renewal of the Violence Against Women Act, Romney would not specify whether he supported the bipartisan Senate version or the GOP House rolllback bill. His spokeswoman said only that he “hopes [the bill] can be reauthorized without turning it into a political football.”
    7. Romney won’t say whether say whether he’d eliminate the “carried interest” tax break for private equity partners. Romney’s campaign has refused to answer questions about whether he supports eliminating the “carried interest” tax break for private equity partners, even when asked directly, saying only that we should probably “take a close look at to see if we’re treating capital gains as capital gains or are we treating, in some cases, carried interest as capital gains when it’s more like ordinary income.”

  • mike

    When President Obama talks about creating jobs it is always more government and more spending. He never even ran a hot dog stand. What does he know about creating a job?

    How much money is enough 16,17,20 trillion in debt.

    Reproductive rights, what about the rights of poor inoccent babies. Do aborted babies go to heaven?

  • mike

    Jeff don’t worry about fair pay for women.

    I have construction company and we are dying with this President. I would be ashamed to tell you what I made over the last couple of years. If he gets another four years the men simply will not have jobs.

  • Jeff

    @ mike. The reporter being an idiot is one thing. The fact that his employer doesn’t fire him is far worse. conservative leaders are not controlling their mentally deranged sheeple, that is a far bigger issue.

    Many reporters are fired or thrown under the bus for misconduct. You are an error.

  • Tammy

    What happened to Morning Joe? The ratings are tanking and will be down in the 200’s if MSNBC doesn’t watch out.

    Joe Scarborough is out a lot lately. Out or only on for part of the show. Seems very suspicious because his absence isn’t mentioned.

  • Jeff

    Tell your republican join democrats to increase the minimum wages, tell them also to pass the transportation bill!!
    Look at the charts of union membership….. Going down along with salaries. Very sad!!!

    MSNBC Caught Selectively Editing Romney Video to Make Him Seem ‘Out of Touch’MSDNC is still wondering why their viewership is plummeting? If not so, they’re as clueless as their beloved leader! http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=JvJPG6KURV8

  • mike

    Yeah, OK Carlison called him couragous. Fired, I don’t know. I would have done something but I don’t know if I would have fired him.

    Cut cut cut cut!!!

    Sure wish we knew where you get these sentences because most of the time they are waaaaaaaay out of context!

  • mike

    People and businesses are afraid to spend money. I don’t need the government to do anything except start to pay their bills. Make people confident that we are not going to be Greece. That the Government is not going to fold. You will see everyones business take off.

  • Ratboy

    Jeff, did you quit Real Estate and go to work for MediaMatters????
