"Republicans start to worry about the negativity...blood bath." Character assassination. That comes so easy to the right, doesn't it? They just don't get it.

KS

Who's this Rachel guy ?

Coiler

I dunno, I see the chrome dome, his name is Steve Schmidt. Maybe you were watching a cooking show KS.

KS

Schmidt is a doofus.

Tommy008

that's actually a female KS. She is, as Savage put it, several weeks ago, "some sneering woman" named Rachel Maddow.

BlackRhino

Thanks for the post, didn’t see the original airing. I wonder if Newt “the salamander” will realize how his crazy is bringing down the party or will his donors comprehend it and pull their funding. Moreover will Mittens “I’m not concerned about the poor” ever get his foot in mouth solved.

Tommy008

Harbour City, is the end of the line, Pops. It's Last Train to Clarksville time, Johnson , if you know what I mean. You got one more chance, it's make or break. Harbour City is either going to make you you a very rich man, and i'm talking googobs of money here, whole shitloads,` or ....well, I don't have to spell it out for you, Pops. Harbour City is the end of the line."

RQ

Romney's full quote:

"I'm not concerned about the very poor. We have a safety net there. If it needs repair, I'll fix it. I'm not concerned about the very rich. They're doing just fine. I'm concerned about the very heart of America, the 90-95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling."

Please, Mitt, stop providing sound bites that will surely come back around to bite you.

Truthseeker

I'm concerned about the very heart of America, the 90-95 percent of Americans who right now are struggling."

You know, the ones Bain Capital put out of business and out of jobs. I wonder how he'll fix that?

Cueburner

So many radio guys I know rail against Clear Channel while cheerleading for Mitt and little realize there it has a connection with Bain Capital, and Mitt's fortunes.

BlackRhino

Thank you for the clarification RQ.

"I'm not concerned about the VERY poor.”

I understand why Mittens will leave the VERY poor to the safety of the underprivileged net. However from a conservative point of view, shouldn’t he concern himself with the payment of the net?

Tommy008

just in - The Donald goes for Romney. Today Trump endorsed Mitt Romney after press speculation that he would give his blessing to the Newtster. More bad news for Newt.

Chucks

Who on the right really gives a crap about anything that Maddow, Mr Ed (the following end), Steve Schmidt, Tingles, Larry O'Donnell or Tawana Brawley's mentor have to say about our candidates and process. We watched how an unvetted clown became President last election. We have to look harder as our eventual nominee is most likely going to be the next POTUS. This nation can not afford to make another massive error like we made with Obama again.
MSNBC preaches to the most leftist of Americans with little to no influence on the other 85%.

Coiler

I would boycott Comcast and GE. They own NBC, ya know?

Tommy008

Zuckerberg is estimated to as best case scenario reach the high 20's moneywise the day after Facebook IPOs sometime in May most likely. Somewhere close to 28 or 29 billion net worth for the Z man if it comes in at the top of the range in valuation. Slightly behind that mean little prick Larry Ellison. If you think he's pissed off now, about Bill Gates a man for whom he has a monomania of hatred and envy, just think what will happen to him when 27 year old Zuckerberg passes him by. This would put him in the "top ten club" - the ten richest peoplw in the world. The tiptoppers of the top ten club can't be thrilled to have a guy who dresses liek Zuckerberg, as a new member. Talk about Nouveau Riche.

Tommy008

just to clarify, zUCKERBERG doesnt need to pass Ellison to be in the Top Ten Club. The IPO just has to come in at hte top of the range to put him in, probably at number 10. Just the face that this guy Zuckerberg is in the same club as Ellison will piss the little bile-filled oligarch off to the gills, causing his face to rurn beet red, hahA lARRY HAHA lARRY

BlackRhino

I watch MSNBC to see the republicans make a fool of themselves. For instance; Rick Tyler, Newt’s communications director the other night.

Whaoooooo…

Pete

Chucks, your estimate that 15% of America cares about MSNBC is probably high. Ditto for Fox and CNN. Their numbers are high for the universe of cable TV news, but their overall audience is pretty small - a few million a week in a nation of over 300 million. Political junkies like us follow them, but not too many other people do.

Truthseeker

Hatred and envy. Why do you know so much about hatred and envy, Tommy? Why not tell us all about Paul Singer? You're the expert on the mean and nasty. I'm sure you know all about him. Right?

Tommy008

who givestwo craps about some middling hedge fund boss ahole. When my privat, nontraded investment fund has it's grand opening the fist week in April it will put to shame all shmuckerbergs, singers shmingers .etc., to shame. Proud papas will be naming their first born sons after me. It's called the Harbour City Fund, Johnson. It's the culmintion of eight continous years experience trading the market exchanges. Harbour City is the end of the line, Pops.

Tommy008

Gates and Allen traded their khakis and L.L. bean shirts in fortailored Italian suits and shoes, when they went public , in the 1980's.

Mary

Romeny thinks 5% of Americans are in the "poor" category? Try 15-20 percent. Why so much trouble with statistics on the right?

http://www.census.gov/hhes/www/poverty/data/incpovhlth/2010/highlights.html

Tommy008

looks like Zuckerberg will knock Walmart heir. Christy Walton out of her numbere ten spot if he comes in at 28 billion net worth post-IPO as has been predicted. Some dude from India will drop to ten and Zuckerberg will gett the nine spot. Obce again the Top Ten Club will be an all male affair.

Mary

Does anybody but you care, Tommy?

Tommy008

i just was on Youtube and i saw a video of Obama giving a talk at Facebook in front of an audience and Mark Zuckerberg. He ticked off some campaign points and then mentioned his new tax plan, which would involve "people like me, and Frankly, like you, Mark, having to pay a little more in taxes". I couldn't even bear to watch any more of his smarmy performance.This guy just loves to say that line "people like me" at various speeches, in references to the taxes thing. I've seen him do it dozens of times." I don't know if you know this or not, but i'm kind of a big deal". This guy with his barely entry level position amongst the world's wealthy, has the nerve to put Zuckerberg and himself in the same sentence, as if they are any where close to being in the same class, financially. This guy's preeening narcissism and collosal , bloated ego knows no bounds. Absolutely sickenign to watch this.

Mary

Why do you watch?

Coiler

Funny to watch the Donald endorse the Willard who just months earlier was trashing Romney and bragging how he had more money.

These guys will do anything for a blowjob.

Tommy008

The world has aabout 6.84 billion people on it. Of those folks, about 314 million, or roughly 4.5 percnet of the earth's population, are Americans. Gee, it says here on Forbes 2011 list that 12 out of the world's 25 richest people, about half, are Americans. But our Mr.President says that there is no such thing as "American exceptionalism". Yeah, right.

Tommy008

Obama offended our closest ally Great Britain,and demaged the "special relationship" between the two countries" shortly after getting into office, when he boorishly tossed out of the White House and sent back to London a prized bust of Sir Winston Churchhill ,which was given to us on indefinite loan, by the British Government , i believe shortly after 9/11. It was said that the bust infuriated Ears Obama, who, always narcissistically concerned about himself and his own feelings, rather than something bigger than himself (his country) saw Churchhill as a symbol of British colonial rule in Kenya.

Tommy008

Remember when Michelle Obama made those speeches during the campaign last time about being proud of her country "for the "first time in her adult life"? That's the real Michelle. Once Romney defeats Obama, during the two and a half months of lameness, until his inauguration, expect the old Michelle, or shall i say the real Michelle to REsurface, with her nasty self. Expect similar comments and worse. Remember, she sat in the front row of Revernd Wright's church for 20 years, without a peep of protest about the hatred and filth coming from the pulpit

BlackRhino

Trump endorsed Mittens, BUT Sharron Angle has endorsed Santorum! No, No I’m not suggesting the frothy dribble; it’s the man you fool. Good grief, you adolescences… We need to grow up.

Anyhow, when a flaky millionaire endorses a coldhearted millionaire it’s only fair that an anal restricted bagger endorse the backflow. It’s called karma you hippies…now let’s go fire some people Mittens.

BlackRhino

AprilMayJune; Dave and Luke read your email on the air today. I’m delighted there is someone who shares my apprehension.

Tommy008

"YOU CAN TAKE IT TO EUROPE, YOU CAN TAKE IT TO THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN, BUT GET THE HELL OUT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!" congressman Allen West, speaking in a ercent speech, adressing Mr. President and his wife, Nancy Pelosi and Barney Frank.

BlackRhino

Ok, Tommy; but what does that mean?

KS

Allen West has been accused of a terrorist and an oreo and everything else the left can throw at them because he had the guts to say what he did in the speech T008 alluded to, but he will not apologize - I don't see why he should, He did not say get the hell out to any one person - he was talking about their current policies.

Fact is, the Democratic party has created a Leviathan namely Government that they are proud of over the last 100 years. However, the Leviathan has a mind of its own and the capacity to destroy everything in its path including those who created it. To that end, I agree with congressman West and any sane person should also agree -if you don't mind letting the facts get in the way.

Tommy008

A California artist named Choe took Facebook private stock in lieu of cash payment for painting murals on the FB headquarters walls back in 2005. The media is saying that his stock will be worth around 200 million dollars, the day after the IPO.

MW

The GOP always needs an in house Oreo. West, Cain, doesn't matter, always willing to sell out their birthright for a mess of pottage.

BlackRhino

KS;
Ohhh, hadn’t heard of such an event to have taken place. So you and Allen West would like to export patriots you disagree with politically? That’s rather interesting. I guess that may be possible if he or his ilk were to be elected president. But wouldn’t that make him a dictator or a king? Hey, come to think of it didn’t the ol’ kings of England export its patriots? And in time those patriots became Tea Partiers. O’boy, I bet if the Tea Partiers today knew what Alle…wait, what…

RQ

An interesting
editorial in today's Seattle Times. Made me think of our own Dan Evans and Slade Gorton.

Truthseeker

Dan Evans and Slade Gorton(maybe) like Eisenhower and even Reagan would be unelectable today by the Republicans. Both Evans and Eisenhower would be considered left of center. If you liked the article, RQ, why aren't you a democrat today? Is it party first? Our current President is right of Eisenhower and Evans.

Tommy008

Savage is all negative and doosdayish today, so much so that ive switche to r and for thje time beig. Going on an onabout how Romney is too nice to win against Obama , particularly in the debates. I saw Romney take on Gingrich in the debates, several times, and best him. I put Gingrich in the same ball park as far as meanness and toughness goes. i think savage is wrong on this one- it won't be the first time. To me Romney is not coming across as weak this primamy season, and i think thats why hes doing so well, partially.

BlackRhino

“if the… Republican Party” made it “safe for moderates again, that'll be a triumph for” it’s “party — and for the country.”

There, fixed it ya’

Your welcome

Tommy008

i agree with Savage that Bader-Ginsberg is senile and need to be impeached immediately and put in a home.

Tommy008

Savage played a clip of Obama speaking somewhere today. He did his "i don't know if you know this or nor but im kind of a big deal" part in the speech. once again. today he dressed it up with "someone who has had the immense good fortune that i have had in life " and then of course went on to say he could pay some more in taxes without getting bent out of shape about it. He is not doing this sentence in his speech to give thanks for his "immense good fortune'. he does this part of the speech, with various slight variations in content and delivery style, simply to basically brag, and let you know he's a "big deal" with several millions of dollars to his name. it is so transparent that this is simply a selfserving little rhetorical device that allows him to boast and preen without (so he thinks-mistakenly so)appearing to do so at all.It has become so drearily tiresome. Get over yourself Mr. President. please.

BlackRhino

There was once a man from Calcutta
Who wouldn’t shut up cause he was a nutta

Tommy008

KS, Chucks, PS......they now are reduced to posts like the brief ditherings you see above, as the best they got.....this is truly the best they got......

Coiler

Savage....lol?

BlackRhino

Ahh.. Thomas, reducing you to what you characterize is my honor.
You’re welcome

The Alpha

So, this blog has been reduced to repetitive rantings from an old miser who regurgitates nonsense. Lost control of your senses . . . or your finances, Tommy?

RQ

TS, I don't follow the party line for either side. Both parties have been hijacked by extremists-- one man's religion is another's environmentalism. That's why I like a centrist like Romney and why the article I linked to struck a chord with me. The left's shotgun approach (let's solve everything with money we don't have) and the right's mighty sword (let's slash and burn everything) just don't make sense to me. Prioritizing and dealing with the most pressing issues first seems like a good strategy. Although the way he said it was tactless and insensitive, I believe Romney has it right--the rich can take care of themselves, and the poor still have a safety net to keep them afloat. Right now, the middle class has been turned upside down and the safety net won't stretch any further. Job creation and economic recovery should be our primary focus, because unless we can right the ship, the whole crew will be lost.
