    Harry Reid is at it again

    AP

    In shocking interview, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claims Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is not the ‘face of Mormonism’ and has ‘sullied’ their shared religion.

    Remember how I sited DESPERATION last night in the case of Juan Williams???? It is across the board!!!! All the loons in the leftie world can post on here about how great obam is doing and the polls etc. Well guess what folks??? If the left was soooooo confident in their candidate they would not say all this crazy shi& they would sit back with their mouths shut so tight that not a sound would come out for fear of making a mistake. Desparation and fear has them pulling all the strings and trying everything to see if something will stick!

    If anyone would bother to go back to sept. 2008, you will see that the msnbc phenomena was the same , with a spike in viewership that rivaled fnc…then go to dec. right after the election and reality once again too form…i suspect that we will once again see their numbers plummet, not that i care one way or another…with 60% of the people distrusting the media, they do not believe anything they hear anyway….

    @Ratboy

    I do agree with the “DESPERATION” theroy at this point, usually when someone has a lead it goes back to an issue realted theme, but when things aren’t going well, or projected to not go well, we see this kind of stuff, but then again Harry has been dumber than Brain Dead for a while now :-)

    BBL…

  • dana

    Harry Reid cant even get a budget for our country for four years but he is worried about Mitts persoan finances…the guy is an evil small minded man who diminishes his office…

    Hey if people stop looking for work then that’s on them. If they’re not willing to drive on and keep searching then so be it but don’t hold that against the President. There’s a lot of jobs out there that go unfilled because it doesn’t pay well or it beneath the job seeker’s desire.

    Did you ever stop to think that if the entitlments are more atractive than the jobs they will go for the entitlement?? That is on the president. The lack of “normal” jobs is on the president, the outsourcing of jobs used to be on the president when his name was Bush but that dont count when the name is Obama.

    If he is gonna take credit for the 4 million created even though we are still over 8% he HAS to take the responsability for the ones that quit looking!! Cant have it both ways Mark.

    lbsles wrote about: “Campaign Trail Report Now Uses UnskewedPolls.com for Ratings”

    I think it is dangerous to ignore the fact that more people consider themselves democrats than republicans. “Unskewered” polls could be giving some people a false sense of confidence and take the election for granted when they see Romney up by 7% points plus the bad Economy etc.

  • Mark2

    Hey Ratboy, If that’s the case then you have to use the real unemployment numbers for all President and not just Obama. And I believe the real unemployment number when Obama took over was at 14.1 or 14.2% and I think it’s still in the 14s.

    I have no problem with doing that at all. But even if you did that the Obama number has still risen NOT shrunk! using the real numbers today we would be at almost 20% not 14

    All the whooping and hollerin around here about MSNBC on the move, creeping up on FOX, look out Hannity and OReilly blah blah blah, here is the reality

    Fox News Ranks Behind Only ESPN And USA In Primetime Total Viewers Last Week

    During last week’s primetime (8-11 p.m.) programming, Fox News ranked third among all cable channels, only behind ESPN and USA Network. Despite several losses to MSNBC in the primetime demo during several hours last week, Fox still topped its cable news competitors overall for the week. Competitor MSNBC came in 11th place among all cable channels and CNN ranked 31st behind networks like Hallmark, HGTV, and the Food Network. This is the second consecutive week that CNN has been beaten by Hallmark in primetime viewership. In total daytime viewership, Fox placed 4th behind Nickelodeon, ESPN, and USA Network. MSNBC ranked 14th in daytime viewership, and CNN remained in 31st

    @Ratboy: >>> In shocking interview, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claims Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is not the ‘face of Mormonism’ and has ‘sullied’ their shared religion. <<<

    Harry Reid is nothing but an old, bitter man. The Democrat Majority Leader of the do-nothing U.S. Senate that we've had to suffer with the past four years. The Republican-led House PASSED a Federal Budget. Reid never posted the bill on the Senate floor.

    As with his proven-wrongful claims that Romney paid no taxes in ten years, he's not above lying through his false teeth, on the Senate floor, to the news media and the Americans watching it.

    I will take care of CNN but you need to send the "best" to MSDNC for the 11th place finish

    @Ratboy “I have no problem with doing that at all. But even if you did that the Obama number has still risen NOT shrunk! using the real numbers today we would be at almost 20% not 14″

    I’m afraid you’re incorrect. See video below.

    I’m with Apple on the polls.

    The bad news: new Washington Post polls of likely voters in Ohio and Florida show Barack Obama leading both key swing states, and outside the margin of error in Ohio.
