    Mayo’s move to drop Medicare patients may be copied by family doctors

    Already happining around here, a huge Doctors group has already said after Mid-2013 they will not accept them

    @Ralph, with all the buzz, NOW they are going to watch the debate!

    I am hearing the exact same thing from some.

  • Coffee Steve

    Holy Crap Batman!!!
    Dropped back a little here to $3.80 but I am not looking forward to seeing if it went up during the day today

  • Larry in Phoenix

    You can’t prepare for an important debate spending time on THE VIEW, DAVD LETTERMAN LAS VEGAS. Obama assumed he had it in the bag and all he had to do was show up and display charm and shoot from the hip.
    I am also appauled at the massive universal ugh machinery leveled against Romney. When FOX is called FAUX, then what is MSNBC other than MSDNC totally in the tank for Obama no honest subjectivity ? James Lipton (Actors Studio) demonstrated to me how perverse the pro Obama universe is. No hyprocracy in his bias. The entire universe is wadged against Romeny.
    There is no honest subjective journalism with ANY of the cable and broadcast organizations. Fox is labled FAUX because it has the ordacity to go against the tide. I have watched FOX labled FAUX when they were the only organization covering Fast & Furious which the rest of the media world finally had to cever becasue they ran out of lame excuses for no ignoring it. MSNBC and Current also deserve a FAUX lable, They are simple resistive to any factual event that may look bad for Obama.

    Obama Takes Shots At Romney In First Post-Debate Speech: ‘That Was Not The Real Mitt Romney’

    The morning after the first presidential debate, President Barack Obama was back on the campaign trail speaking at a rally in the frigid Colorado weather. He opened his speech by going after Republican opponent Mitt Romney, blasting the candidate for not being “the real Mitt Romney” by contradicting his own campaign beliefs while on stage last night.

    “It couldn’t have been Mitt Romney because the real Mitt Romney has been running around the country for the last year promising $5 trillion in tax cuts in favor of the wealthy,” said the president. “The fellow on stage last night said he didn’t know anything about that.”

    He continued: “The real Mitt Romney said we don’t need any more teachers in our classrooms. but — don’t boo, vote — the fellow on stage last night, he loves teachers. Can’t get enough of them.”

    The president also hit at Romney for saying on stage Wednesday night that he hadn’t heard of tax breaks for companies that outsource jobs, despite being known as a “pioneer” of companies that have outsourced in the past. “He said, if it’s true, he must need a new accountant. Now we know for sure it was not the real Mitt Romney because he seem to be doing just fine with his current accountant,” quipped Obama.

    “The man on stage last night he does not want to be held accountable for the real Mitt Romney’s decisions and what he’s been saying for the last year. And that’s because he knows full well that we don’t want what he’s been selling for the last year,” he said before continuing on to explain what he believes the “truth” is about all of Romney’s positions

    The President looked good today out on the stump with his best friend Tele Prompter. He was throwing jabs and he looked good. I’m telling you folks you give this guy a script and his buddy Tele Prompter and he is magic.

    Yep he is pretty good with somebody else’s words and ideas!!! :lol:

  • Sicilian Papa

    Mitt “The Stormin’ Mormon” Romney vs. Barrack “The Empty Suit” Obama

    Paul “The Four Leaf Clover” Ryan vs. Joe “Sloppy Joe” Biden

    Who knew we would have the candidates with SWAG.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Blitz Woofer is talking about the new tougher Prez. on the campaign stump. CNN is about to show another Obama Campaign event in Madison Wisconsin. I can see the President calling out Romney…oh yeah Romney isn’t there. Maybe the President can talk to an empty chair.

  • Larry

    It’s kinda funny, howAl Gore rationalizes B.O.’s obvious inability to articulate his positions, due to the altitude.
    Considering the amount of time he spends in Air force one his air supply should be adjusted to about 7000 ft

  • Ratboy

    Now do you understand why they should shut him up??? :lol: :lol:

    Biden: ‘Yes, We Do’ Want to Raise Taxes By a Trillion Dollars

    Vice President Joe Biden, speaking earlier today in Iowa said, “Yes, we do” want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars:

    “On top of the trillions of dollars of spending that we have already cut, we’re gonna ask – yes – we’re gonna ask the wealthy to pay more,” said Biden. “My heart breaks, come on man. You know the phrase they always use? Obama and Biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. Guess what? Yes we do in one regard. We want to let that trillion dollar tax cut expire so the middle class doesn’t have to bear the burden of all that money going to the super wealthy. That’s not a tax raise, that’s called fairness where I come from.”

    Yep all that impotent stuff like Letterman, The View, Vegas, fudraisers…………………………………

    Dem. Congresswoman: Obama Isn’t Lazy, He’s Just Tired From Dealing With Important Issues

    Colorado congresswoman Diana Degette appeared on MSNBC Thursday afternoon, where host Andrea Mitchell asked her “what happened” to Barack Obama during the previous night’s Denver debate.

  • Sicilian Papa

    My God Rush Limbaugh was right! He said today the left would float the story that Obama was purposely letting Romney win. He was holding his fire until future debates. When I heard Limbaugh say it, I thought that theory is really out there. Now I hear Dems on MSNBC saying it.

    To all the lefties, I have tried not too but I have been gloating. I said for four years that President Obama is an empty suit. I thought if a day came when someone challenged him, he would shrink.

    That said he has two more debates and he owns the corrupt lib. media which gives him a better than 50-50 chance to win this thing. I may be enjoying his downfall but I am not pronouncing him defeated.

    Romney had better be ready.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Obama’s people and the lib. media are out in force attacking Romney and calling him a liar. They are also saying Romney has been prepping for the debate for months while the President has to be President. I am going to look for this line of Bull#hit on the Nightly News.

    The corrupt lib. media will be looking to minimize damage and hold off on public opinion polls until people hear their propaganda. They may be effective, they will attack on behalf of Obama for the next three days.
