    Chuck Todd is nothing if not a helluva race-baiting shill for Obama.

    Then NBC did something truly amazing….

    No, really; it was truly amazing….

    Not one speech by a person of color was broadcast on MSNBC.

    Not a single one.

    Doug Z you lie yet again. Yes there was.

  • Robbie

    I like Fox Business as well. Cannot wait until they are in as many homes as CNBC to see what their ratings will be. My bet is that they will be comparable to CNBC’s. We see glimpses of it already with Lou Dobb’s Tonight beating Kudlow every now and again.

    Mitch Mcconnell just spoke at the convention, he is one spooky dude, he fits right in with the GOP Party of Crazy Stupid!!!!!

  • Eggmanbill

    Now we have Rand Paul, their pulling all the crazies out to try and make Paul Ryan look sane, nope not going to work. I guess young Rand has realized that water is thicker than blood, he’ll never be a Ron Paul, LOL

    Can’t we all just get along?

    @@@@@ Doug Z

    I like Chuck Todd. Todd is going to be a big time media star. Of course he is ture to his brand what else would you expect.

    Isn’t great that we have a president who will not send Americans to war without proper reason?
    Isn’t great that John Mc Cain isn’t our president. Mc Cain is perhaps one of th most honorable men in this country. You would think that the senator would know better having been in war himself.

    American should ONLY send our armed forces to war when there is reason to do so. Not to save the world.

  • Eggmanbill

    Mccain just gave his ridiculous war speech, now were waiting for Rev. Huckleberry of the Fox No-News Church, never heard a Rev. lie so much, guess that’s the Fox Church way. All this to make Paul Ryan look like the smartest guy at the Party of the Crazy Stupid. LOL

    The problem with the malignant Obama-left that has hijacked the Democratic Party is not just that they are stupid and ignorant … it’s that they lack human decency.

  • tony

    CNN’s Crowley,Blitzer and Erin Burnett marvelled at the inspiring speech Condi Rice gave without a TELEPROMPTER–can you imagine Obama trying this– impossible–every time he goes off script–His calling police in Conneticutt acting stupidly,57 states,calling an Admiral a General,you didnt build that BS–

    I went to Yahoo! because they have a live chatroom about the RNC convention…of coarse unless you are making personal attacks on the people making speeches they censor your comments…it’s typical of the 12 year old responses by lefties…and if you don’t play the game, you’re too mature to play with them…

    Paul Ryan spoke tonight. The problem is that there were many, many lies. Too many lies to list here. Paul your nose will be six feet long when you wake up. When Paul spoke about the stimulus he failed to state that he asked for and receive $21,000,000.00 of stimulus dollars. He said that the money would be used for jobs in his state of Wisconsin.

    And you blame him? when Obama is handing out your tax dollars to all of his cronies and republicans shouldn’t try to bring some of those tax dollars back home? When Bush cut taxes, I didn’t see any Democrats fighting to give that tax cut back….

    I was a democrat…of course, I researched the democrats for a book i’m planning to write, and you’d be amazed at what I found out..or maybe you wouldn’t..but it’s not even the Democratic party anymore…it’s now the Progressive Party…and it’ll end the same way it did the last three times they pushed their agenda…very very badly.

  • Stan T

    WOW…FNC slaughtered the alphabet channels…at the 10PM hour, FNC pulled 6,879. The closest of the alphabet channels was NBC with 4,770…even if you counted in MSNBC they STILL didn’t match FNC!

    @@@@Stan T

    I am a reader of your blogs. You express yourself well. Therefore you are known to me as a person with higher than average intelligence.

    My point was quit clear. Paul Ryan bit the hand which feed him.

  • Fischer

    Paul Ryan gave a great speech. Obama has put 6 TRILLION dollars onto the national debt in just 4 YEARS. Democratic has control of house/senate for 2 of those 4 years.

    Agreed. Closing it with Led Zep’s “Rock’n'Roll” was icing on the cake. I’m on board. :grin:
