    FNC 2 shows. No other cable news show on the list. :shock:

  • Hillbilly

    Suikostinger – Yeah I’m sooo afraid to post a link to the fact site. Oh wait, I’ve done that many a times when a fact site rates something mostly false, even half true. Stop grasping for straws.


    No link this time i see.

    because we have to take what Romney said by the way he MEANT it and HIS interpretation! HOLY SMOKES! This is a new one! Romney knows and so do you that there are no “death panels”. He LIED! BED TIME!

    Should we take your interpretation of what he said over his? I would say NO! He never said there is death panels. Who’s lying now?

    Don’t worry, Hillbilly is too scared to touch the unemployed one. Probably any of the others also.

    Who’s interpretation we using Willard’s or yours? I “touched” the medicare & TwlightZone did the 5 trillion tax cut. That leaves unemployment. This depends on what govt stats one uses. Your own fact check source told you how he arrived at the 23 million number. He said it more than once.

    He got the figure closer to right earlier in the debate, leaving out only the part-timers when he said the U.S. has “23 million people out of work or stopped looking for work.”

    Is that why you didn’t post your link?

  • AppleStinx

    Let’s see if Jeff has any comments about immigrants from Arab countries in Paris. :cool:

  • Hillbilly

    Phil – Which a side note trips me out about Paul Ryan what qualifies this guys to be a “Numbers Wonk” ?


    Umm maybe being on the house budget committee most (if not all) of his time in congress? You can call Paul Ryan many things, but to say he’s not a “Numbers Wonk” is just plain crazy. :roll:

  • Coffee Steve

    I’m watching the hearings. This one is going to simply grow and grow and explode.

    I cannot believe for 14 days they kept the “It’s The Video” thing going.

    Then he is in the right place to meet the perfect mate

    While single and living in new York a short while, I dated a French lady, she threw meatballs

    sounds more Italian than French!!

  • Coffee Steve

    sounds more Italian than French!!

    Nope she was french, women from Italy don’t shave their legs LOL

    Romney is peaking too soon

    This. Romney now has to defend his 47% comment in front of 65 million people. I don’t think Obama will be as timid as he was the last time.

  • d.d

    Egad, you all , I’ve been watching C-Span for almost four hours now on Benghazi. 48 attacks on Benghazi !

    Some highlights : one dozing congressman , Elijah Cummings is a pain, Charlene Lamb , a pure bureaucrat that had never been in Libya, & , Dennis Kucinich gave his usual war soliloquy.

    Ambassador Kennedy , Undersecretary , double spoke very carefully worded & he thought it was terrorist attack day after but said intelligence said attack was spontaneous (ha-ha)

    Lt. Coronal Wood called it a terrorist attack on 9-12 & Eric Nordstrom Libyan security expert, State Dept., called it a terrorist attack on 9-12.

    Jason Chaffetz, Utah, &, Trey Gowdy ,S.C., did a great job putting down the video & making the case for early terrorism. Rep.

    Sandy Adams of Florida was great. 230 clear incidents of violence in Libya this year.

    At best , this is stonewalling, or negligence , &, what about our other embassies? Benghazi embassy did not meet embassy security standards, & , yes, extra help was asked for.



    J’espère que vous avez un bon moment. Apprécier le vin.

  • Coffee Steve


    I was watching it, Total incompetence

  • DB

    Gabrie, and Obama is going to have to explain Benghazi!!!

  • DB

    dd, I almost feel sorry for Lamb. She is in way over her head and probably is just smart enough to know she is the one that will be sacrificed to placate congress. As Coffee said this is total incompetence from the top down.

    Rep. Trey Gowdy Explodes at Libya Hearing: ‘I Want to Know Why We Were Lied To’

  • AppleStinx

    Did I hear it correctly? The last caller on C-Span said something to the effect that ultimately those people who died in Libya should have been responsible for their own safety.

  • Coffee Steve


    I would not doubt it :roll:

    Tuesday is open

  • Jeff

    Thanks so much d.d. ;)
    @coffee Steve. They need bigger coffee cups, I had forgotten how much I hate these shot glasses for coffee cups they roll with here.

    Food portions are low and prices are high, club sandwich, soup, coffee, 100£ around $130.00. Yikes!
    Explains why people are so thin here.


    @applestinx. You talking about perhaps why at the Four Seasons Hotel there is over 40 Middle East channels and only 11 US/UK channels. Something like that? There are movements within London and Paris to preserve there iconic and historic qualities and not allow the influence of $$$$$$$$ of the ME to have negative impacts on tourism and culture. Ask Ratboy about Dearborn Michigan, from the 1980’s to what it looks like now.

    1966 wrote: “alex karas(sp.) has died.”

    It’s a strange world. A couple of days ago his name came up when a friend mentioned Susan Clark and I asked him whether he knew who she was married to. I don’t remember why Susan Clark’s name came up, though.
