    Chuck Todd: With Strong Debate Tomorrow, Romney Can Effectively ‘Close Out’ Election

    Last week, Chuck Todd came in for criticism at NewsBusters for sniffing off a Rasmussen poll favorable to Mitt Romney as “slop.” But has yesterday’s slop become today’s sirloin for the NBC political director? Sure looks like it.

    In a remarkable shift, on today’s Morning Joe Todd stated that in recent days he has seen a “structural shift” in the polling data in Romney’s favor. With a strong performance at tomorrow’s townhall-style debate in which he connects with average Americans, Todd declared that Romney could effectively “close out” the election, putting President Obama in a hole too deep to recover from in the final debate

    @Coffee Steve

    Turkey has not played well with NATO in the last 12 years. They are a member but if they do not get 100% from it they do not play. They will always be a member just to CYA but in short they could take it or leave it.

    The Turks are a arab France.

  • Coffee Steve

    Isn’t it just wonderful the media isn’t reporting on Gas prices the way they did daily when Bush was in.

    Gas up here again, 10 cents this morning

    @ The Turks are a arab France.

    Good! Maybe Jeffie can extend his trip and go see them too! :shock:

    I feel like I am watching the bouncing ball on Mitch Miller as I follow the gas prices! (Wow, Mitch Miller, bet there are abunch that dont know who he is!)

    FULLY agree with that good sir

    Well Well Well, This could be the nail in Obamas election coffin! If she starts asking for more details, HE IS SUNK! :lol:

    Candy Crowley: ‘I’m not a fly on the wall’

    Crowley has indicated that she intends to play an active role in the debate.

    The town hall debate is the one presidential face-off in which the audience gets to ask the questions.

    But don’t tell that to moderator Candy Crowley.

    Like any journalist worthy of the assignment, Crowley concedes that the debate on Tuesday night isn’t about her, but she just as eagerly acknowledges her role in it.

    “I understand that I’m there. I’m not a fly on the wall,” she told POLITICO recently. “We don’t want the candidates to spout talking points. That doesn’t help voters … I’m going to react organically to what’s happening.”

    In a move that has unnerved both campaigns, Crowley, the host of CNN’s “State of the Union,” is indicating she intends to play an active role in a debate meant to be dictated by an audience of independent voters.

    “Once the table is kind of set by the town hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, ‘Hey, wait a second, what about x, y, z?’”

    @Coffee Steve

    I have been in and out of Turkey too many times that to count. Never did feel very comfortable there.


    World is more blue than green I think. Can’t say for sure since I have never been in space but I have sure sailed the 7 seas and well as have been on every continent of the world at least once.

    Good Morning to you Coffee Steve. Hiya usnretiredx2!! Good afternoon to me, it’s 5:30pm and back in Paris. Not back to the LA until friday. Lots of great people at the Chateau I’ve met the past few days from Texas, England, Germany, NYC, LA, Wasilla Alaska lol! Iceland too. No hot air ballooning sadly due to the rain. If I said who owns this particular chateau I’m sure a particular obsessed Jeffie poster’s head would explode. I’m sure all the info can be googled.

    Hope your brother is still on the men’s Coffee!

    How life in Tampa USN? Anymore road trips soon?

    Will check back in later!!

    Looks like some folks in here got the same memo:

    Top Mitt Romney surrogate Rudy Giuliani admitted that the GOP is accusing President Obama of covering up the violence that led to the death of an American ambassador in Libya for political gain.
    During an appearance on CNN’s Starting Point on Monday, the former New York City mayor argued that the administration is purposely delaying investigations into the incident until after the election to “cover up” its own failures. But asked to substantiate the claim, Giuliani became agitated. He announced that he did not have to give Obama the benefit of the doubt or withhold judgment about the incident until a full investigation is complete because the president is a Democrat:

  • Coffee Steve

    @Ratboy & All

    On the debates

    Pres. Obama will come out attacking and trying to throw doubt on Romney’s statements, All Romney will do is ignore his attacks, and stick to issues, and try and connect with the crowd and rebut with facts on Obama’s record.

    Todd should be concerned all right, all Romney needs to do is break even, and Obama needs to attack in an issue related manner. But Todd is right on one thing, if it turns out the public (Not the media) if the public thinks Romney is 2 for 2 or about the same as he was in the first and historically most important first debate, The door may in fact truly be closed.

    Oh, and by this evening one side or the other will release a remarkable discovery that has never before been known, to throw the other off :-)

    Sorry all,

    They are so desperate!!

    Koch Industries Warns 45,000 Employees Of ‘Consequences’ If They Don’t Vote for Republicans.
    The Koch brothers’ $60 million pledge to defeat President Obama — along with their political network’s $400 million spending — make them two of the most influential conservatives this election.
    Not content with their unprecedented influence in politics, the Kochs have also taken to influencing the votes of their employees. According to In These Times, Koch Industries sent 45,000 mailers to employees at Koch subsidiary Georgia Pacific, urging votes for Romney and other conservative candidates. The letter warns ominously of “consequences” for the workers if Republicans lose.
    The Koch mailer is one of several recent examples of executives warning that employees may lose their jobs if Republicans do not win in November. Here is an excerpt of the letter:
    While we are typically told before each Presidential election that it is important and historic, I believe the upcoming election will determine what kind of America future generations will inherit.
    If we elect candidates who want to spend hundreds of billions in borrowed money on costly new subsidies for a few favored cronies, put unprecedented regulatory burdens on businesses, prevent or delay important new construction projects, and excessively hinder free trade, then many of our more than 50,000 U.S. employees and contractors may suffer the consequences, including higher gasoline prices, runaway inflation, and other ills.

    Hope your brother is still on the men’s Coffee!

    Thanks Jeff

    He is a remarkable man going thru what he has and is, its a long way from over, but its Fantastic seeing his eyes open, and even though he can barley talk from the tubes, hear him complain about the pain and demanding that me or his wife go get his a wheelchair so he can go home LOL

    We should know within a few days if they will do the triple bypass, the doctor is scared to death at this point he would survive it. But, he 100% won’t survive without it.

    I told that Doctor this last week, It has always been my belief if you have a leaking or glogged pipe, Fix it, cause one eay or the other it either breaks, or gets fixed.
