    MSNBC has a new program coming…

    It will be called ‘The Four’….

  • weinerdog

    WOW! What happened here?

  • Coffee Steve

    AHHHHHHHH!!!! I almost won the bentley, The five Almost Nailed 2 Mill.

    Good Grief FOX Exploded last night, Hannity almost popped the 3 Mil mark and Great was way up there too.

    Wait till the coverup hearings start :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    O’Reilly really smacked that little Beiber brat…who is Beiber? :lol:

  • Italian Mike

    Well, lets get the ball rolling. Chris Matthews is sinking like a stone. It could not happen to a nicer guy. I hope they dump him!

    Rachel has a good loyal following. When do they move her to 8pm? Ed is done.

    The four (not the five) starts next week at three on MSNBC.

    Kyrstal Ball and S.E. Cupp are babes. They have the three libs and one conservative format. They may do well. I have seen them all in a roundtable format. They are not bad. The two ladies are babes but they are also very smart.

    Starting Point/Early Start continues to slide.

    @Coffee Steve

    Great news from Florida:

    Obama = 46%
    Romney= 42%

    Here is the problem/problems with the poll – note below taken right from the Quinnipiac site

    From June 12 – 18, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,697 registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percentage points. Live interviewers call land lines and cell phones. The survey includes 698 Republicans with a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percent.

    first you have 1000 D’s to 700 R’s, Thats a problem
    second it includes cell phones, many cell phones are in one name such as 3 kids a wife and the husband under just the husbands name so the call could be going to a 13 year old with a cell phone, thats a problem
    third it is “registered voters” not likely voters but registered voters, thats a problem

    Then you take the margin of error which makes it a tie then you take undecided which almost never goes for the incumbant.

    end result not so good for Obama. ANY poll at this point in time that has Obama under 50% is deep do do for Obama. This is not partisian talking this is fact and history.

  • UpAndOver

    “The problems we face today are there because the people who work
    for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.”

  • Italian Mike

    Beiber, another Canadian liberal telling us conservatives how wrong we are. He’s 18. I’m sorry kid grow a beard and then come and talk to me.

  • Ratboy

    Did anyone watch ED, Rachel, or Larry O last night (I think tingles was off)? I am wondering how much they covered Fast and furious and the goings on from yesterday.

  • Letmethink

    Nancy Grace beat AC360

  • Ratboy

    THIS is what MESSDNC is reporting!!!! ROTFLMAO

    Politico Reporter: Romney Only Comfortable Around ‘White Folks’


  • Coffee Steve

    first you have 1000 D’s to 700 R’s, Thats a problem

    Yep, I knew that and I seen the trend chart today, FL is trending to Romney but with all polls down there tabulated its still silly close at plus or minus 2, but the trend was minus 4 for Romney just 6 weeks ago.

    Plus a few counties down there have been re-districted which also helped the GOP this year. Plus the dis-approval rate is now around 49% for the President.

    One thing that will make Steve Perry happy is a trend that shows that while Obama’s numbers are like a yo yo, Romney has not gained or lost hardly any, hes staying stagnet and that is a concern. (Nationwide at this point)

  • Italian Mike

    The economic news today was brutal. President Obama will be in the 40% range even with the loving media on his side if things don’t turn around quick. Latinos need jobs too!

    Quinn signs bill requiring retirees to pay part of health insurance

    Gov. Pat Quinn today approved legislation requiring thousands of retired state employees to chip in on the costs of health care insurance that many of them get for little or nothing.

    The law attempts to rein in the state’s rising costs but also seeks to share the expense with the 78,000 retirees who pay no premiums for their insurance now.

    The Quinn administration will set premiums each year for the group health program, which includes retired judges, lawmakers, university employees and rank-and-file state workers.

    Hey there Mr President, just keep reading the good news!

    5 Housing Markets Where Renting Beats Owning.

    In theory, plummeting home prices and record-low interest rates should make buying a home cheaper than renting one. But experts say in some parts of the country, it still pays to be a tenant.

    Despite the incentives to buy now — namely that average rates on a 30-year mortgages are now 3.7% — sales of single-family existing homes slipped 1.5% in May from a month earlier, according to data released today by the National Association of Realtors. Experts say the drop, which came during the historically busy spring season, suggests the housing market has a way to go to recover. If anything, the ranks of American homeowners are dwindling. The homeownership rate in the U.S. fell slightly from 66% to 65% during the first quarter of 2012 — the lowest in 15 years, according to the latest data by the U.S. Census. (It peaked at just over 69% in 2004.)

    @Italian Mike
    The economic news today was brutal

    Friday it gets worse, the market dropped -250 today and Moodys down graded 17 banks and more to follow Friday. Tommorrow could be a day to watch very close, and if some things happen and the chips fall in place, it could get very scary.

  • REM

    msnbc is just pathetic and the ratings prove it

    low lifes, ed ,al, larry, chris, bashir ,melissa perry

    rachel aint a low life but she is a hack

  • Italian Mike

    Coffee Steve

    President Obama is draining his cofers to keep those numbers low with negative ads. Let him spend his money now to keep his sinking ship afloat. Romney is boring and can’t tell a joke to save his life but he is smart. He is holding his fire for most part and banking the checks.

  • Coffee Steve


    Did you notice that with the big news story yesterday, and where most people used to tune to CNN for the big stories, the trend now seems to be, they tune to fox now?
