    War is coming between the Clintons and Obama

    *Ed Klein: Obama-Clinton rift re-opens after Benghazi, debate fiascoes
    Report: Clintons prepare for Benghazi blame … Obama won’t call Bill back …

    Clinton and Obama have had a serious falling-out over two issues: the president’s preparation and lamentable performance in his debate with Mitt Romney, and the question of who should be assigned blame — Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton— for the intelligence and security screw-up in Benghazi, Libya

    here’s an idea…while we’re at it, let’s relentlessly do something else just as laughably stupid- Let’s, on a weekly basis, compare what The New England Patriots performance is versus the 2-bottom high school football teams in the The Boston Unified School District.

    FOX News, viewed in far fewer homes than NBC/ABC/CBS, is a far more accurate league for comparison-purposes than matching-up FOX News with MSNBC, CNN, Krapping With The Kardashians, and D!kes on Bikes.

    Purely from advertising-dollars point of view and how an advertising executive’s future is dependent upon highly effective return on investment, my point is indisputable…

    I got news for you O. Hillary ain’t takin the blame.

  • Mark2

    Poor Fox News, what will they be able to complain about if Romney wins the election? Their ratings will drop drastically if Romney is elected.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Matthew
    Well, they should have done this and this and this” when you’re acting from a position of after-the-fact omniscience.

    On this one issue, you would be correct, But my reply and on the issue I was discussing was in reply to the issue Mark2 had brought up.

    I think we mainly agree that most of the things budgeted are not done in a reasonable or feasible manner. Now on the Shrimp On a Treadmill Study, I think, that was paid for as part of the stimulus, if memory serves me, but to be honest I can’t really remember if it was or not.

    I honestly think you and I and many, would agree, we’re in a pickle because Washington, has not a clue on how to run a budget.

  • Mark2

    Romney being elected will guarantee that Hillary will be elected in 2016. However, if Obama is elected, it will be harder for Hillary to become President. The reason I say that is because the National debt will go up by another $4 to 5 Trillion in the next 4 years regardless who’s elected this year.

  • Coffee Steve

    @S. Papa
    I got news for you O. Hillary ain’t takin the blame.

    You got that right, Obama thinks he can do this to her and Bill, he better get ready to move to Hawaii in January. Bill or Hillary won’t betray the party, but they darn well will make Obama’s bid a heck of alot harder.

    And, that story has merit.

    Really? Where will the viewers go, msnbc? Ha.

  • Sicilian Papa

    How could Biden say he and the Prez. didn’t know it was a terror attack in Libya. The people on ground knew. The intelligence people knew. The President of the United States didn’t know 24 to 48 hours after the attack that it was a terror attack.

    At the very least they must have suspected it was terror and they should declined to comment until they knew the whole story. That is giving them the benefit of the doubt.

  • Mark2

    Interesting, apparently 51 Million tuned in to watch the VP debate but only 1/5th of all Americans who watched tuned into the view it on the Conservative News station.

  • d.d

    Wow ! Fox had a great night.

    Coffee,
    Hillary will probably have some carefully placed leaks . I don’t know what bill willdo.

    Still smiling, Joe? Romney extends poll lead as bullying Biden is blasted for ‘rude and disrespectful’ display in debate against Ryan

    Lots, &, lots, & lots, of good pictures as only the Daily Mail can do.

    @S. Papa
    How could Biden say he and the Prez. didn’t know it was a terror attack in Libya

    ABC and Fox are about to explode this one Mike, because let’s say Obama or Biden were not notified, then the question about to be asked any day now is

    “Are you telling us that 4 people were killed in an attack that our State Department viewed as it happened and they did not notify the President of The United States?”

    And

    Now that its proven that Libya emmbassy had made several request for added security, the WH was never notified of that?”

    I ask, is any of that believable? And if any is true? Is this man really ready to run the country another 4 years?

  • Sam

    If CNN gets outta the way, MSNBC will pick up the majority of their viewers and compete even better with Fox News.

    I mean lets face it, CNN only exist so gyms and cafe owners can show news in their businesses without losing customers for being bias to one side of the politics over the other.

  • Coffee Steve

    @d.d.
    Hillary will probably have some carefully placed leaks . I don’t know what bill willdo.

    Bill will place some very strategic gaffe comments as he did before, and if he thinks Obama is laying this on Hillary? Bill will come flat out and tell people exactly what he thinks.

    So, let me get it straight: in an Olympic competition the guy who wins the gold medal actually loses because there are more competitors who didn’t win. Great thinking, just like spending money the US does not have is going to solve our economic problems. Good job, Mark2 – I am glad your grasp of logic is so profound; as profound as your understanding of politics.
