    Just the fact that it exists. I can read a poll even with some bias in polls people are breaking for Obama. Without the lib. media carrying his water Obama would be dead in the water. Jeff fighting the lib. media will always be tough for our side. I hate them because they are not news people. They are the propaganda wing of the progressive movement

    This late in the game it is tough to make up ground. These are political realities. The debates offer a huge opportunity but the candidate must be sharp. Reagen was well behind and took Carter apart in the debates.

    If a America wants President Kardasian than so be it. That is why he went on The View AND Leatherman. As the young guy working as waiter because he could not find a job in his field told me, “I’m voting for the President he has swag.”

    Al Gore will be fair & balanced. ;)

    Why do Blacks hate Jews so much. I saw it growing up


    You’re full of sh*t. I’m seeing it now.

  • Tennable

    @ All,

    The POTUS goes on The View, the US will put up California, New York and Florida to China as collateral, and for decades we give, give and give to the Welfare State and we still don’t to teach people how to catch their own fish.

    I’m off to Kandahar for six months my friends, get all ^^this^^ fixed by the time I get back regardless of who wins in Nov.

    Left or Right, you all gave me more to think about each day…



  • Sicilian Papa


    Jeff, the rest of the lefties

    Hey you guys are happy I get it. You are reading the polls. Rachel, Ed, Lawerence O. they are working to get their guy elected and they are happy. I can live with that and be gracious.

    Boy do I hate the empty suits and empty skirts, with their smug smiles in the corrupt, bias, lib. media getting their way. I hate to see cheaters win.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Stay safe my friend and we will see you in six months.

  • Mark2

    Here’s the most recent Jon Stewart video that takes a jab at both Obama and Romney. Funny as heck.


  • Sicilian Papa


    Mark 2

    I can live without it.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @d.d.: I’m posting and I’m calm. Thanks to BP meds, my pressure is usually 120/80. “As a former radio journalist”…I’m concerned with some people buying some bloggers BS as real facts and possibly trust you to present them with the facts, not knowing that you’re pasting someone else’s idea of facts.

    Anger issues? 15 minutes ago, some older guy nearly crashed into my Jeep, not once but twice. As is the practice here in NJ, we exchanged colorful language but 30 second later, I’m fine. I’ve been to counseling. During and shortly after my divorce, but the way you suggested it to me, you’ve placed a stigma on emotional therapy and as an R.N., you should know better.

  • Sicilian Papa



    The good news is if the polls hold up America will get Obama, Pelosi and Reid part duex. If we get President Redistribution I want the whole cast in this tragic comedy. Lets go down the toilet with one large flush.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Forget all the negative stuff. I have had a lousy day. Let’s have a beer and forget it. Tomorrow will be better.

    Later all

  • Mark2


    I guess you didn’t watch 60 minutes and how Romney now believes in redistribution. That video above would’ve shown you that.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Papa: We already HAVE President Redistribution, who apologizes to leaders of third-world nations who hate us. Remember the old saying: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me?” If the marbleheads who voted Obama in four years ago do it again, never mind his racial makeup. But, we’ll see his true colors and we’ll be damned.

  • d.d.

    Tennable ,

    Everyone here hopes you return safely from that dangerous part of the world. If you are military, thank you for your service, Chris.


    Ah, Ralph , there is no stigma to therapy . Many “normal” people have issues they need help with, like repeatedly making requests that have already been addressed in the past . The psych term for this is “repetition compulsion,” or, worse ,as Pschcology Today says, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results.”

    The debates offer a huge opportunity but the candidate must be sharp.


    Dude you knew that you were screwed the minute your party picked Mitt Romney. The debates might very well be the final straw.

  • Mark2

    Tuesday is open

  • Ralph Hahn

    Just received a news alert from the New York Times that Obama is surging ahead of Romney in Ohio and Florida, based on a NY Times/CBS News poll. We shall see. Romney will wipe the floor with Obama at the debates unless the liberal moderators purposely trip up Romney with BS questions. AFTER the debates, I’ll take poll numbers seriously. The American viewing public will have no choice but to see Romney, because they rarely see much of him on lamestream TV unless their “story” is some lie made up by the Obama campaign. Then, you’ll only see selected clips of Romney in an unflattering way. I HATE when debate moderators and other questioners ask candidates about what the other camp charges, instead of asking, i.e., how they are going to fix the economy. We all saw plenty of examples of this during the Republican debates earlier this year.

  • AppleStinx

    @Tennable (Chris)

    All the best and God bless. We’ll see you in 6 with good news.

  • Letmethink

    Ralph I too think Romney can do well in the debate. My concern is that obama does not tell the truth most of the time. It is hard to debate someone one the facts when they lie and deflect. Romney will have to be on his toes with firm stats and info to refute the lies. He will need to present it in a clear and precise manner. That has been a problem for Romney–MHOO
