    Ratings should be up for all cable news channels, compared to recent Tuesdays. FNC should be able to win in total views and compete with CNN and MSNBC in the A25-54 demo. That’s for the Address portion. After that, it should be all FNC.
    On the broadcast side, NBC probably wins. On the Comedy front, are they covering?

  • Cathy

    @Rat, that was on ABC? Maybe we have a hope. If the liberal media will just truly report on the President’s action maybe we can fix this mess we are in.

    Yea I am SURE that MSNBC is covering it! :twisted:

    I would not be surprised if Obama doesn’t show up on Steward’s show. You know Obama is hitting the campaign trail after the SOTU. He has to go brainwash his working followers and promise more money to the college students and non working supporters.

    The more things change the more they really stay the same.

    My father fought in the Korean war. He had nothing good to say about the North Koreans. Not just the government but the people. He used to say, “I don’t understand why these people don’t raise up against their government. If they would have just worked with us, they could be free. They people in North Korean fought against us and now we are sending them food. We aren’t making any friends by feeding them. We are only feeding their future soldiers, who are going to be used to kill our children.”

    I don’t like seeing anyone die. I hate the idea of letting people strive to death. But as long as we in the U.S.(government or private orgs) send food to North Koreans the people will not raise up against their leaders.

    OMG…… Liberals are now saying that Obamacare hasn’t caused any problems. That things would have been worse if it wasn’t for Obamacare. How stupid are people to believe this?

    On Middle-Class Jobs Obama Needs To Face ‘Reality': Economists

    Huff Po.

    Despite four years of Obama policies aimed at jobs, most of the jobs created on his watch can still best be described as low-wage.

    While most of the jobs created during the recovery were in the low-wage service sector, those who still have a middle-class job are making less. The median household income declined nearly 5 percent to $50,964 between June 2009 and June 2012, according to an August report from Sentier Research. That’s the first time that’s happened in American history

    I was checking… Dave Clark Five is in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Inductees for 2013 are: Rush, Public Enemy, Heart, Randy Newman, Donna Summer and Albert King. Among those who didn’t make it: Deep Purple and Procol Harum. I don’t think Gary Brooker et al care much at this point, but it’s sad for me to see as a fan.

    John Boehner: Obama lacks ‘guts’ to lead

    ‘The only thing I worry about on immigration is the president getting in the way,’ Boehner said. | AP

    House Speaker John Boehner slammed President Barack Obama on Tuesday, saying that he doubts the nation’s leader “has the guts” to make the tough calls on the country’s growing deficit.

    “He doesn’t have the courage to take on the liberal side of his own party,” Boehner (R-Ohio) said at a breakfast briefing ABC News reported. “He just doesn’t have the courage to lead when it comes to our long-term spending problem.”

    “I don’t think he has the guts to do it,” the GOP lawmaker added.

    Boehner also warned Obama to stay out of the way on immigration reform, saying that there was a lot that could be done, and urging for Congress to come to an agreement.

    “There’s a bipartisan conversation going on in the Senate. There’s a bipartisan conversation going in the House. Let these things work their way along. It is too early to talk about legislation going on in one house or the other,” Boehner said. “The only thing I worry about on immigration is the president getting in the way.”
