    Good Morning Everyone

    Big day today, they start warming up my Brother (Hyper thermo Therapy) and see what level of brain activity he has, we have hope though, they were in the room the instant he had another heart attack and his heart stopped, so they think he had very little loss of oxygen during the 8 minutes he was gone and they shocked him back. They were doing CPR on him within 30 seconds of the event.

    They also will start bringing him out of the medically induced coma they put him under.

    The State Department late last evening started the process of throwing the White House under the bus, when the State Department issued a Statement saying they never, at any time stated the Libya attack was due to a video.

    This is right before the hearings on Capitol Hill. And we also are learning of a Video of the actual attack on the very night of the attack that may be showing before the committee.

    This story IMHO could be a major factor in the next debate (VP) & The Next Presidential Debate and the election. Cause now CBS & ABC are acting like wolves hungry for a story again. When is anyone in Washington going to understand, that it’s not the act that makes the story, it’s the cover-up.

  • Coffee Steve

    *No White House Press Briefing in Last 16 Days…

    I would not expect too many more because of the Libya story, the Illegal contributions story, and the hearings on Capitol Hill.

    But they forget the saying

    You can run but you can’t hide.

  • UpAndOver

    I bet biden lays an egg before big bird….

  • Coffee Steve

    *Revealed: VP Debate Moderator Martha Raddatz Hosted President Obama at Wedding, Never Told Public

    That’s shocking enough in its own right but things are further compounded by the fact that ABC News, home of veteran Democratic adviser George Stephanopolous, has long known about this conflict of interest and did nothing about it. Even worse, the network has actively tried to prevent the public from learning of it.


  • Coffee Steve

    I brushed my teeth and used mouthwash, it’s OK if everyone wakes up now and comes in :P

    Coffee Dude, Prayers are with you guys!! I hope all works out today my friend!!!!

    Suffolk Calls NC, VA, FL For Romney, Will No Longer Poll States

    David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Research Center, says his polling organization will no longer take anymore presidential polls in the states of North Carolina, Virginia and Florida.

    “In places like North Carolina, Virginia and Florida, we’ve already painted those red. We’re not polling any of those states again. We’re focusing on the remaining states,” Paleologos announced on FOX News’ “O’Reilly Factor” on Tuesday.

    This is pretty hard and to the point!

    Wynn On Obama: “I’ll Be Damned If I Want To Have Him Lecture Me”

    On the Tuesday broadcast of the nightly Nevada political program “Ralston Reports,” Steve Wynn, CEO of Wynn Resorts sat down with host Jon Ralston to discuss the presidential election.

    Wynn, an outspoken critic of President Obama, didn’t hold back in his latest criticism of the incumbent president seeking a second term.

    “I’ll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I’m a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don’t like having a bulls-eye painted on our back,” Wynn said about Obama to Ralston. An excerpt of the interview is below.

    WYNN: I’ve created about 250,000 direct and indirect jobs according to the state of Nevada’s measurement. If the number is 250,000, that’s exactly 250,000 more than this president, who I’ll be damned if I want to have him lecture me about small business and jobs. I’m a job creator. Guys like me are job creators and we don’t like having a bulls-eye painted on our back.

    The president is trying to put himself between me and my employees. By class warfare, by deprecating and calling a group that makes money ‘billionaires and millionaires who don’t pay their share.’ I gave 120% of my salary and bonus away last year to charities, as I do most years. I can’t stand the idea of being demagogued, that is put down by a president who has never created any jobs and who doesn’t even understand how the economy works.

    Wynn on a scrapped business plan: “I’m afraid of the president. I have no idea what goofy idea, what crazy, anti-business program this administration will come up. I have no idea. And I have to tell you Jon that every business guy I know in the country is frightened of Barack Obama and the way he thinks.”

  • Coffee Steve

    Thank You my friend. Hope is eternal, and whatever happens to him, it all works out in the end

    @Ratboy & d.d.

    I of course had to miss my breakfast with my buds Yesterday Morning, but my RNC friend did tell me the internal numbers are now showing a shift in even the Senate Races. It’s 49 Dem 45 GOP. With 6 Toss up’s and now with the trend the GOP could easily pick up 4 and have a shot at a 5th.

    Even Akin has closed to within 2 points in some polling there in MO.

    Rats? I do not like Dick Morris but he is close to what I have been saying, if you take away the +9 Dem over sampling slant in polling and make it a realistic +3 or even 4 it gives Romney a larger lead than many realize. The DEMS will NOT get the same output as they did in 2008.

    And with the firestorm about to hit on the Libya cover-up and now the State Department going against the WH, it could even grow to a bigger lead.

  • Coffee Steve


    With Hillary Clinton at the memorial service and other times claiming the video caused the attack how is she now going to eplain saying the State Department has never said it was the video? :roll:

  • Coffee Steve

    Back to the hospital, have a good morning everyone, I’ll leave you with this

    The Righties

    Phil confesses that he is no liberal. He says that the far left in this country would be considered right wing anywhere else in the world. Phil tells us, based on the politics in these other countries, to just relax and let liberalism take over. Stop fighting it and give up already you bunch of kooks.

    See Phil has worked all over the world and he knows what is good for us. Well, Phil from all of us backward, knuckle dragging, right wing lunatics to you, we would like to say, enjoy your new country because we have only now begun to fight.

    Hi Coffee,
    I am so sorry about your latest fam. health issues and hope the situation improves. I will hope and pray for his recovery…I could not believe the weak performance of the Pres. What? He thinks he’s going to get another 4 years by leaning on the podium and taking a snooze? I mean, really. Talk about unprepared for battle. Most Dem’s are disgusted and rightly so b/cause we do not want social safety programs taken away from the already hammered 47%. Geez, Mitt spit out the fact that people had the nerve to want ‘food’, if they were hungry. I guess in Mitt’s world, ‘let ‘um starve’. What a guy. Not. Seniors had better get ready to pony up 6 K, b/cause their coupon will not cover their h. care. Medicare goes bye bye in the 1st mo. of the R and R admin. Looks like the pres. will cut bennies to people on S. Sec and he said he and Mitt are on the same page there (Paraphrasing). Medicaid? Children/adults/disabled? bye bye. “Gotta’ somehow pay for those continued tax cuts for billionaires, so start saving up poor and m. class. Shared sacrifice means only poor and middle class to give to the ultra rich. Shared sacrifice never entered in the mix for the rich…ever. OK, well, BBL.

    WOW enven his BFF Letterman is turning!!!

    Letterman Plays Video of Chris Matthews’ Head Exploding

    Nancy Nancy Nancy luv ya but what are you talking about?? — Mitt spit out the fact that people had the nerve to want ‘food’, if they were hungry. I guess in Mitt’s world, ‘let ‘um starve’.

    I think you maybe need to turn off Cenk for a while and go back to Shep and Brett and even a little OReilly because you have kinda gone off the deep end with your interpitations.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Oh no we will still help seniors, disabled poor and people temporarily down on their luck.

    Nancy there won’t be anymore Obama phones. I don’t have a cell phone right now because I can’t afford it. That is my problem not yours. I will get one again probably in the spring. Things are improving slowly.

    This is not in the polls at this time.RNC has not give Tod Akins any money to fight. Now he has this.

    BIG NEWS: Feds Paid $40 Million to Claire McCaskill’s Husband’s Businesses
    The firms affiliated with Shepard appear to have received about $39 million from the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Housing Service or the Department of Housing and Urban Development between 2007 – when McCaskill took office – and the end of 2011. According to McCaskill’s financial reports, Shepard earned an income of between about $400,000 and $2.6 million from those businesses in the years in which they received government payments.

    Mr Coffee

    It is time to see Air Claire’s taxes

  • 1nancy2

    Now, now, friend, I luv ya too! You have your way of thinking and I have mine, but still, in my mind, my ‘Interpretations’ are just fine and dandy. Here is the thing, Mitt DID say to the billionaires in the room…” These people (47%), think they are entitled (emphasis on that word), to food, housing, health care, you name it”. That Mitt statement was based in reality when he did not realize that he was being recorded. So, do explain how I ‘kinda went off the deep end’, when we saw and heard Mitt make that statement? Roger Simon just wrote an article and went into a tirade about Mitt begrudging food to hungry people, so you see, Roger agrees with my ‘interpretation’ too. What have you been up to? Please keep me informed. See you.

    Man you guys are quitters. You get down a little bit and the sky is falling. I prepared myself if we got another four years of Obamaville but I never gave up. You know having the corrupt lib. media in your pocket has spoiled you. You fall behind a little bit and you are ready to throw in towel.
