    It is apparent that Schultz is now a has been in the 8 o clock time slot. He is getting the same kind of numbers that Tingles and Sharpie are getting.

    Rachel and lawrence forgot to call their relatives and friends to keep their numbers up last night from mondays numbers

  • b

    MSNBC is nothing more than The Obama White House Press Room consisting of children that just graduated from their student body political clubs and burned out 60?s hippies and long-retired civil rights losers. For those that continue to defend this pathetic network and their hilarious bunch of clowns are just fellow miserable morons that love the company. Keep up the good work to no avail and when the Network inevitably dies, so will you. Nite, nite…

  • MathMan

    Thursday numbers should go up, no matter who is hosting, with the Holder and Health Care votes making the headlines.

  • Italian Mike


    Tingles ratings are still in the tank. I can’t tell how many laughs I get out of that “tingles” nickname.

  • Raz

    Advertisers like consistancy and a loyal fan base. Which is why Fox has so many. Poor CNN. MSNBC…….don’t worry villages….your idiots will come home someday like the buzzards to Hinkley Ridge.

  • Italian Mike



    I hope to hear from soon. I like your opinions. They are well thought out. That me not be a popular sentiment but I never cared much about being popular.
    Jeff, Suikostringer

    That’s no knock on you guys I like you too.

    You I have friends that are progressives and we mix it up in person and it never gets nasty. Look for extra fireworks coming from South Windsor CT. on the forth. I got some friends coming over.

  • Italian Mike

    I know MSNBC has big daddy NBC to fund them. With the way they are sinking you have to ask yourself for how long?

  • Italian Mike


    Where in the world is Coffee Steve?

    Did you see those Q polls in the battleground States? We have to open the wallet and hit back.

    5 Trillion more in debt, less people working then four years ago, The treasury taking in the same amount as four years ago with spending increased by a trillion a year.

    We also need to open up the leading from behind President, that worked real well in Eygpt

    We can’t relie on the bias, left wing, so-called objective media to remind people.

  • Chriscee

    And Thursday’s jobs numbers are going to be awful. Unemployment is expected to rise again….but you won’t hear that from Fat Eddie, Cow Rach or Delusional Lawrence. They’ll spin so much that you’d think the entire country was working….when we all know that Obama’s jobs creation is in the negative territory.

  • Italian Mike

    You know I watched the bias, left wing, so-called objective media the last few days. I remembered back in the good old days 2000 to 2008 when they attacked Bush everyday.

    They never seem to have a harsh word for President Obama. When they do critize the Government they never seem to say those words the Obama Administration. They never seemed to shy away from those words the Bush Administration when Bush was President.

    What can say about the bias, left wing, so-called objective media members. A group of people that give up their integrity to feed there political ideaology.

  • The Answer

    CNN’s ratings are just laughable, as I’ve suggested we make young Bristol Palin a contibutor over there. Not only do CNN’s ratings go up, the SCAM (State Controlled American Media) gets their dual wish of a Palin vs Palin showdown and their cry of why Palin doesn’t go on non-FOX media is heeded. Problem solved for everybody.

  • Italian Mike



    The good news is nobody is watching them!!!

  • Ratboy

    I dont think even Steve Perry can spin this one……………….nah I bet he will at least give it his gallant effort!! :lol:

    MSNBC: ‘Gas Prices Down 47 Percent Since April and May’

    Have your gas prices dropped in half in the past couple of months?

    Well, the geniuses over at MSNBC believe they have, for in the middle of a segment about fuel costs on the Martin Bashir show Wednesday, a chyron boldly stated, “Gas Prices Down 47% Since April and May”

  • Chriscee

    I don’t know where gas prices are falling…here in Colorado outside of Fort Collins……unleaded is 3.69 a gallon…..middled grad 3.84 and super is still $4.00….diesel is $3.80 a gallon…..so if they are falling..they aren’t falling here.

  • Italian Mike


    Tingles, tingles, tingles, tingles tingles.

    Here is hoping tingles or one his flunkies reads our posts.

    Chris Matthews the gift that keeps on give.

  • Italian Mike

    Where are the progressives? Riding high on there Q poll numbers.

  • Italian Mike

    I was kind off hoping for a political fight tonight but the ranks are thin.

  • Italian Mike

    Ok I’ll be back later.

  • Suikostinger

    Gas prices are falling here. Just 3 weeks ago it was 3.60 right now it’s at 2.91…

  • PaulG


    Just trying to get a handle…who should Romney pick for a running mate and why? Obamaites need not reply for the obvious reason…thanks

    Paul Ryan,,he best understands and articulates what needs to happen,,in regards to our debt and economy,,from a conservative perspective..
