    Politics Nation is in the tank Al. Will he claim racism if he gets canned?

    The GDP BEAT expectations at 1.5% growth? How low has that bar been set.

    Tingles isn’t much better. Will he plead insanity if he gets cannned?

  • Sicilian Papa

    The early bird doesn’t catch the worm on CNN, Early Start/Starting Point. If Soledad O’Brien screams in the woods and nobody hears her is she really making a sound.

  • Sicilian Papa

    The mad man of money isn’t going to cash many paychecks with those ratings.


  • Sicilian Papa

    Last word post strong numbers. O’Donnell and the left are always complaining about fairness but what a great country we are. A Communist can make it big in Cable News.

  • Sicilian Papa

    FBN, well, Rupert not everything turns to gold. Though FBN is way up the dial and not on basic cable.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Rachel is strong nearly a million viewers. One of the posters said she should try a new wardrobe. I don’t want to be mean but at least get some new hooded sweatshirts for your TV commericials.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Greta is posting strong numbers. The scientologists have raced to the recue providing strong ratings numbers and a free copy of L. Ron Hubbards book.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I would like to opine on O’Rielly’s numbers but I don’t know what that means? I just looked it up and I still don’t want to opine.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Morning Joe should change the name of the show to Morning Blow. You think Mika is annoying now.

  • Ratboy

    The MESS posted prety good numbers except for Sharpie and Tingles. I think both of them have poisened the well with their BS. It is too late in the election game to make the switch now so they are here for the duration. It will be interesting though after the elections. Lawrence Odell said some time ago that he only wanted a couple of years and eluded to leaving after the elections. If that is the case it would give the opportunity for a full shake up and overhaul!

    When I travel I do it a lot. I look around at the landscape and say Ohhhhh Pine! the I look at another tree and say Hmmmmmm Oak. :shock:

  • Sicilian Papa

    The Situation Room with Blitz Woofer. Maybe he should get Mike the Situation to host. He’s an idiot but he might draw some viewers.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I am bored fellas and having a little fun.

  • Coffee Steve

    Mayor” Do everything I say and ban everything” Bloomberg was caught air conditioning his parked SUV with a self-built air conditioner stand in his driveway a couple of months ago after telling people to turn off their AC’s to save energy and help the planet, UPDATE: He still is doing it.

    Several sources are now saying Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill cannot win in Missouri this fall, she will lose.

    Shameless Racial Pandering: Obama Tailors Health Care Pitch to Minorities

    Could anyone imagine if a white President did this? The racism word would be pulled so quickly

    President Barack Obama tends to skim lightly over the details of his health care law in speeches.

    But his administration has a far more specific pitch to black and Hispanic audiences.

    The message: Blacks and Hispanics, among whom uninsured rates are significantly higher than among whites, stand to benefit disproportionately under the health law, gaining access to free preventive care and other services that will help reduce existing health care disparities. The sustained outreach from the White House aims to make voters eligible for new benefits aware of them and how to get them.

    Obama’s staff has invited groups of black journalists and publishers to the White House for health care briefings with senior officials and conducted traveling policy road shows in black and Hispanic neighborhoods across the country. On the day the Supreme Court upheld Obama’s health law, senior adviser Valerie Jarrett held an on-background conference call for black reporters.

    Obama rarely emphasized specific benefits for blacks and Hispanics as he pushed his law through Congress, focusing instead on its benefits for the general populace. And the law itself includes only a smattering of programs designed to address racial disparities in health care — even though 22 percent of African Americans and 32 percent of Hispanics are uninsured, compared to 14 percent of whites, according to Kaiser Family Foundation data.

    Jon Corzine’s MF Global is Client of AG Eric Holder’s Former Firm

    Several members of Obama’s DOJ are tied to the banks caught up in the foreclosure fraud scheme. This is why we have seen no prosecution of those “Wall Street” fat cats who donated to Obama’s presidential campaign. Now we learn corrupt Jon Corzine, an Obama bundler and someone who gave Obama advice on the economy, is a client of Holder’s old law firm, Covington & Burling. Corzine can’t explain how he lost millions of dollars and the Obama regime doesn’t feel these connections represent no conflicts of interest.

    Cronyism is preventing justice.

    Those wondering why the Department of Justice has refused to go after Jon Corzine for the vaporization of $1.6 billion in MF Global client funds need look no further than the documents uncovered by the Government Accountability Institute that reveal that the now-defunct MF Global was a client of Attorney General Eric Holder and Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer’s former law firm, Covington & Burling.
    There’s more.

    Records also reveal that MF Global’s trustee for the Chapter 11 bankruptcy retained as its general bankruptcy counsel Morrison & Foerester–the very law firm from which Associate Attorney General Tony West came to DOJ.

    And more.

    As Government Accountability Institute President Peter Schweizer explains in the Washington Times Thursday, the trustee overseeing MF Global’s bankruptcy is former FBI Director Louis Freeh. At Holder’s Senate confirmation hearing Freeh served as a character witness for Holder and revealed that Holder had previously worked for Freeh. “As general counsel,” Freeh said, “I could have engaged any lawyer in America to represent our bank. I chose Eric.”
