    Here is an excerpt from the supposed highlight of Mitt Romney’s evening:

    You said that on occasion America has dictated to other nations. Mr. President, America has not dictated to other nations. We have freed other nations from dictators.”

    Now someone please spot the fallacy. (Hint: False dichotomy). Krauthammer is on Fox News spinning his C-spine off. The look in his eyes tells me that he realizes the BS in this Romney “zinger.” Hahaha.

    He is only up seven in Conn. You better have a darn good ground game. If he loses Conn. Tingles will have a thrill up his left arm.

    Only up seven in Conn.? Charlie Manson could get 51% of the vote in Conn. if there was a D in front of his name.

    The last couple of weeks I have been seeing Obama ads run here.

    Can’t we all just get a hug?

    Part One of the heavy lifting is over.

    Part Two of the heavy lifting is November 6th. Do your part and vote against Obama.

    I love how when fox crushes msnbc at least 2 or 3 of you bitter libs always say all the networks are liberal then you get your calculator out and add up all the networks and msnbc and cnn and claim you won.the truth is that NBC had 12 million veiwers at 8pm for the voice and ABC had over 13 million for dancing with the stars.fox had over 4 million for Bill O then added over 7 million more for the debate.that’s right O’rielly had more veiwers then msnbc had for the debate.After Mitt wins will all you cry baby libs just go away.

    Stand by Everyone! Mark2 sees this and he may start disagreeing with Rasmussen after agreeing with Rasmussen! Warning Warning his reaction might not be suitable for children or faint of heart :shock:

    Debates deliver favorability edge to Romney; now above 50% in rating

    BOCA RATON, Fla. — Mitt Romney crossed a major threshold early this week, moving above 50 percent in his favorability rating with voters, according to the Real Clear Politics average of polls

    What’s your take for the decline of debate viewership at MSNBC?

    Hey Apple, I think you may have made a mistake and hit the – key instead of the + key when typing the MSNBC stat. Honest mistake, The keys are next to each other after all :twisted:

    Why the f(u)ck wouldn’t you dictate to other nations if your annual defense budget is at least half the total of the rest of the world’s budget and you need stuff in their territory in order to survive. Some sort of bullying goes on or it doesn’t make sense. That behavior is not present in nature. Yes, the United States has liberated countries from dictators. But we’ve also installed dictators in other recorded instances.

    The United States and Iran (then called Persia) established diplomatic relations in 1883. In the following years, Iran saw the 1906 establishment of a limited constitutional monarchy, a 1953 coup against its democratically elected prime minister that was supported by the United States and the United Kingdom, and a 1978 revolution against the country’s hereditary ruler, the shah.

    He has no business being in the propaganda business then. These are different times. Goebbels got away with that sh(i)t because the internet didn’t exist.

    Competition with football was not likely the cause. MSNBC isn’t affected as much as FNC or CNN in primetime on Mondays. I think it’s either their host(s) and/or reduced interest. By the way, CBS was down 5.4%, ABC down 5.9%, NBC down 10.3% in total viewers.

    @Popcana:

    >>> @Mark2

    You have a floundering presence here. Those that are big Fox News viewers welcome you to keep coming back day after day after day after day…. You get the picture. <<<

    Speak for yourself, Popcana ;-)

    “I think it’s either their host(s) and/or reduced interest.”

    Thanks. My take is that its the host(s).

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Apple Stinx: I think that the old ‘conventional wisdom’ had taken hold last night where with the really big stories, you’ll get the broadcast network viewers who automatically tune to CNN. Still thinking that CNN is the only all-news network in town. They probably expected the broadcast networks to dump out of the debate analysis quickly because there was a huge interest in last night’s debate, I’m proud to say.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Gabriel: Don’t be a Potty Mouth. Just censor the word with dashes instead of actually spelling it out with a ( ). Thank you. The Management.

    Ratboy asked: “Apple, does your #1 key stick?”

    Only when I sweat. :wink:
