"Who is this guy?" tens of millions of American voters asked themselves last night. "This isn't the Mitt Romney the media's presented to me over the last six months?" Free of the corrupt media's corrupt filter; free of the spin, the lying fact-checkers, the gotchas, and the desperate effort to cover up any and all bad news that might hurt Obama -- by every standard, every measure, every opinion and every opinion poll, what we witnessed last night at the first presidential debate of 2012 was a commanding, dominating blow-out performance by Governor Mitt Romney.
As one of the heroes of 911 said "Let's Roll". As another hero said "Bring it on". The GOP-pundits-hand-wringers must STOP being concerned with the "media" and whatever "revenge" they will "seek" after the beating Mitt Romney gave obama! It's the demonrats and obama who SHOULD be worried... Buck up! Mitt Romney can take care of himself!
I agree. 100% correct. Revenge - the sick, corrupt MSM will have nothing else on their minds now. Their precious emperor was not supposed to stand exposed with no clothes, making their own immoral collusion in the charade look all the more damning. Revenge - it's on the table now.
Prediction: All the Sunday political talk shows are lining up the liberal pundits. Friday afternoon, some half baked revelation about Romney hits the news and for the remainder of the wkend, all the talk from the MSM is about this revelation and not BO's performance in the debate. Swamping every news broadcast and publication.
The media has been completely negative about Romney since he was chosen as the GOP candidate. What else can they do that they haven't done already to try to bring him down?
If you remember, when the GOP had multiple candidates, the MSM tried to push Romney as the front runner because they thought that Obama had the best chance of beating Romney. The laugh is on them and they are licking their wounds today. Romney came out swinging and scored a knockout last night. Now who's your daddy?
Obviously, Mitt knows what he's doing and he's getting some pretty good advice. Seems to me that in the next debate, he should spend his opening statement talking about the media and their bias, and to warn viewers to watch for bias in the questions. Then, if he really has cojones, he'll say that the president probably has the questions in advance.
They've already attacked his faith, his family, his dog, his wealth, his former career, and his ideas. The dirtbags at MSNBC even intimated that although he doesn't use caffeine, he must've been ''on something'' last night because he was so animated.
It was a huge wake up call for the very people who have insulated Obama for 5 years.
BO look like a loser, which implies that his supporters, the media, are losers as well. It also makes those who have been listening to media distortions realize that they have been LIED to. People might shrug their shoulders over incompetence but when they are lied to they get mad. The target of their ire will be the media who job is supposed to be to ferret out incompetence and corruption, a job they have completely abrogated in order to support BO.
The media is terrified that Romney will win, not because of the win itself but because of what will follow. Reagan won, successfully turned around the economy, and it repudiated liberal economic theory. Liberals were furious to be proven so obviously wrong that they have spent decades trying to spin Reagan's record as less successful. If Romney revives the economy it would be an even more forceful repudiation of liberal theory. The spin about BO's economy is that "NO ONE" could have fixed it, not even the great BJ Clintoon. When Romney gets the job done they will look like morons and liberals hate to look stupid. The media is far more invested in BO than they were in Carter so the resultant backlash against liberals would catch dopey media as well.
As to "if the referee takes control, victory can be had!", that's not surprising. It's affirmative action for the president who obviously needs a "little" help. Is that what you want? A president of our Country who cannot get up on a stage and win a debate on his own? Someone, by the way, that was supposed to be one of the great orators of our time? The smartest guy in the room? Ha! Must have been a very small room.
The first time one of the moderators asks trivial personal questions or a gotcha question then Romney should reply why, with all the serious problems in this country, are they playing junior high school games of personal attacks or gotcha questions? He should then refuse to answer their question.
Show the members of the press who and what they truly are, to America what NAMBLA is to children and expose them by name.
The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News
The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be
When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.
It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average
STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview. "I´m not constructing a campaign around the approval of my peers. I´m constructing a campaign around the aspirations of my neighbors."
Rush Limbaugh began his radio show Monday morning by addressing the news that Cumulus Media, the second-biggest radio broadcaster in the country, plans to drop his show from its stations by the end of the year. Limbaugh assured his readers that “nothing is going to change” in terms of their ability to hear him every morning. “There was another POLITICO story that ran last night on this program,” Limbaugh began, referring to Dylan Byers‘ report. “Someday, I am looking forward to detailing all of this for you,” Limbaugh continued, but for now he said he “must use proper business restraint.”
Secretary of the Treasury Jack Lew, who oversees the IRS, made the rounds of four Sunday morning TV talk shows (all but CBS’s Face the Nation) to promote President Obama’s latest “pivot” to the economy, but ABC’s George Stephanopoulos and CNN’s Candy Crowley failed to take advantage of the opportunity to press him on the IRS scandal. NBC’s David Gregory squeezed a question in at the very end of their session, but then didn’t follow up on Lew’s insistence “there’s no evidence of any political involvement.” Gregory: “Mr. Secretary, I’ll leave it there.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
