    Plugs…unplugged get ready folks the human gaffe machine will be appearing tonight in prime time. Yes Plugs Biden…Slow Joe…the Fred Flinstone of intellectuals will wow you tonight with his home spun one liners.

    The lib.media will gasp, the girls will swoon as the fifth Beatle entertains and informs. Special guest star John Corzine will appear with his get out of jail free card. President Obama will be sleeping in the last row so be as quiet as you were when you saw him in the first debate.

    Yes, folks don’t miss it live tonight on all channels, the one man train wreck, the ayatollah of rock and rolla, the one, the only, big F#&kin deal Joey B.

    When the hell is Obama going to show just an ounce of LEADERSHIP and tell his campaign idiots to shut the hell up!!! This is disgusting!!

    Cutter: Benghazi Is Only an Issue ‘Because of Romney and Ryan’

    Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter said Thursday that the “entire reason” the terrorist attack at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans has “become the political topic it is” is because Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan talk about the attack.

    STEPHANIE CUTTER: In terms of the politicization of this — you know, we are here at a debate, and I hope we get to talk about the debate — but the entire reason this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. And it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing.

    BROOKE BALDWIN: But, Stephanie, this is national security. As we witnessed this revolution last year, we covered it–

    CUTTER: It is absolutely national security–

    BALDWIN: –it is absolutely pertinent. People in the American public absolutely have a right to get answers.

    Cutter’s remarks drew immediate criticism from across the political spectrum. But the Obama spox quickly doubled down on Twitter, replying to a Buzzfeed researcher, “Romney has politicized Libya w/no plans of his own. POTUS’ priorities are getting facts & bringing terrorists to justice.”

    ABC News scrambles to downplay Obama’s attendance at VP debate moderator’s wedding

    Complete conflict of interest. This should never happen. President Obama attended her wedding. Her husband was on the Harvard Law Review and very good friends with her husband. She and her husband were invited to Obama’s wedding, with only her husband able to attend due to scheduling. Her husband, who she divorces, is eventually appointed to federal position by Obama. If this is fair, when does Rush Limbaugh or Michael Savage get to run a debate?

  • Doug Z

    Martha Raddatz is a way to partisan Democrat to fairl moderate the debate. We all saw Jim Lehrer and Martha Raddatz is no Jim Lerher. Jim Lehrer kept the cndiates engaged in the topic at hand and forstered, promoted and executed the best presidential debate I ever saw.

    You can almost bet that Raddatz will visibly display her Democrat bias as she has done on ABC News for countless years.

    When CNN dumped Lou Dobbs that was the beginning of the END of CNN.

  • Letmethink

    Great news coffee. Thanks for letting us know.
    Pappa, love your clever post. I hope the Romney campaign is reading i. They can pick up some great tips. Although I didn’t watch the obama/Romney debate, I plan to watch the one tonight.

  • Letmethink

    Here is proof that all this president car about is politics. Just heard that he never called the soldiers shot here in Texas by the major nadal but he did have time to call sandra fluke and tell her how sorry he was that Rush called her a slut.

  • Letmethink

    @doomsayer2012–agree about Lou Dobbs but glad he is now at FOX. He was so restricted by liberal dogma at cnn that he couldn’t report responsively. We watch him every day and love his program.

  • Ed whatley

    CNN has lost all credibility. Van Jones really a man whose organizations threaten business who are conservative with boycotts. Listen to him
    He’s a racist! He made numerous public racist comments in the past! He’s an idiot! CNN really????

  • Ratboy
