    Interesting numbers all around. OReilly Factor did well even if OReilly himself was not there. I still think Hannity and Maddow would make lovely guests on each others shows. Total. Ratings. Gold.
    Isn’t Hardball is misnomer (maybe mispelled, sorry to all)with numbers that soft?
    Mr Ed is having nice numbers, hope Mrs Ed will get better.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Attn: Obama 2008 voters: Remember this as you head to the polls on Nov. 6:

    “Fooled me once, shame on you! Fool me twice? Shame on me!”

  • Ratboy

    Hannity is ON FIRE!!!! As good as Maddow has been doing Hannity is smokin her!

  • Stan T.

    I nearly choked, i was laughing so hard…Tingles just said he can’t wait for Joe the gaff Biden to face Ryan in the debate…he actually thinks Biden is going to have all the numbers….is he kidding? the man can’t even remember what century we’re in…and we’ve been in it for 12 years…he thinks he’s gonna get something out of someone who thinks that it’s 1912?

  • Raz

    Isn’t Hardball is misnomer (maybe mispelled, sorry to all)with numbers that soft?

    Very sorry folks, Isn’t Hardball ‘A’ misnomer, there that’s better

  • Godfrey

    CNN is the most left wing News network in North America…very very useless bunch of Obama apologists with Wolf Blitzer, Piers Morgan and Anderson Cooper leading the pack!!!

  • Tony

    There’s an old saying in Tennessee — I know it’s in Texas, probably in Tennessee — that says, fool me once, shame on…….shame on you. Fool me, you can’t get fooled again.

  • Coffee Steve

    Hannity is chasing Da Factor now, that is until Bill comes back

  • Kevin

    Why Bill O’Reilly beats Sean Hannity every night, I will never know!! Sean Hannity is so much more fair than Bill O’Reilly. Sean Hannity is da best!!

  • Godfrey

    Romney gave a strong Energy Policy speech today, and what has CNN been covering? Distractions-Tod Akin, Tampa Strip clubs, White house beer brewing, Hurricane but only salivating for it to hurt the republican convention. CNN has deliberately refused to cover substantive policy debates or anything about the economy but has become a willing tool in the hands of Obama.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Tony: That’s the Tennessee old saying to my above post above?

  • Coffee Steve

    @Sunshine and all who posted about the MSM doing all these Morman specials, you must keep in mind the DNC memo that went out to all the MSM talking heads that stated “We must go out and destroy Romney now”

    In reference of course to minimize the bounce Romney will get from the convention. And of course the talking heads are just eagar to comply with their marching orders :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    Joe Biden: Detroit Is Getting Back Up

    Psssttt…Between 2007, when the Democrats took over Congress, and 2011, revenues declined by more than $100 million. Over that same period, income-tax revenue dropped by 18%, utility-tax revenue by 17%, and property-tax revenue by 2.3%. Detroit is today the second-poorest major U.S. city.

    Say it ain’t so Joe

  • Godfrey

    Romney gave a strong Energy Policy speech today, and what has CNN been covering? Distractions-Tod Akin,Bin laden raid author, Tampa Strip clubs, White house beer brewing, Hurricane but only salivating for it to hurt the republican convention. CNN has deliberately refused to cover substantive policy debates or anything about the economy but has become a willing tool in the hands of Obama.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Coffee up his Sleeve: Whenever Bill isn’t on The Factor, I have to turn it off. I can’t watch Laura Ingraham or Juan Williams host that show. When Bill’s there, he’s in control. You don’t have three people talking all at once like Laura has. Juan, all of a sudden, becomes a conservative when he’s interviewing someone. Both look like they have coat-hangers in their mouths when they’re reading Bill’s usual script on the teleprompter, coming in and going out with the show.

    I said it before: Bill should arrange for either Dennis Miller or Bernie Goldberg to serve as his hosts. You wouldn’t have the viewer drop-off that you have with Ingraham and Williams.

  • Ralph Hahn

    There’s ONE good thing if Tampa is pelted with heavy rain from the tropical stom/hurricane: You won’t have those Occupy protesters there. Maybe, for what little lamestream coverage the convention is going to get, the Dems and protesters will likely forget about staging any “1968″-like protests. If they really get out of line, Tampa police will be able to handle them. It’s a lot harder and less dramatic if someone gets “tasered,” then the swinging of billy clubs.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ralph Hahn

    I’d like to see Bernard Kalb do the fill ins for Bill, they are friends and Bernard is highly respected.

    And the occupy protest won’t matter much there, they will raise alittle stink just to make the news, unless they hurt someone though. And even if they do hurt someone, the MSM won’t cover it, but if someone throws a little tea, it will be Breaking News :-)

    I gotta say it as it is. Hannity is not as neutral as OReily. Hanniity makes no secret that he wants Obama GONE! He is very slanted that way. I will say though that he is very fair in the guests he has on in that he has the D’s and the R’s on there in a pretty balanced format.
    OReily will give credit to Obama when credit is due (it is just never due :lol: )and he will get on the right and the left. He too has a good balance of guests.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Tingles says Biden will clean Ryan’s clock? Oddball is unwatchable.

    Fox News poll: Race for the White House tightens

    Less than a week before the Republican convention begins, the race for the White House is a virtual tie. According to a Fox News poll of likely voters, the Mitt Romney-Paul Ryan ticket receives the backing of 45 percent, while the Barack Obama-Joe Biden ticket garners 44 percent.

    The poll, released Thursday, is the first Fox has conducted among likely voters this year, which means an apples-to-apples comparison can’t be made to previous polls. Likely voters are eligible/registered voters who will most likely cast a ballot in this year’s presidential election.
