NBC nightly Obama propaganda hour

Brian Williams not hiding his disdain for Paul Ryan. Smirking and insisting a question be answered the way he sees the issues. What a shill. And Chuck Todd says "fact checking" does not align with the speeches.

Wonder how his "fact checking" about Columbia University studen records is coming along.

You watching NBC Nightly News as well then.

My wife asked me why I watch NBC, I told her I needed to do so to see what the latest propaganda from the Democrat Party is for the day. They have never failed me yet.

If you're a card carrying Dem you get a little descrambler that you hook up to your TV and there is a banner running along the bottom with the next day's talking points when you watch NBC or MSNBC and a few more.

Of course for us who are not Dems, we get them anyway, like you said C-P

Tonight is going to be great.....lots of wood being taken to the Progressive Democrats and the One!

Shame there will very few Democrats who watch the speeches. Shame too many of them just cannot find the intellectual curiosity to see what the other side is talking about.

As far as they are concerned there is no "other side". It is simply "not yet our side" as they cannot fathom that anyone could think differently from them.

For the life of me, I can't begin to imagine the DNC having the rallying momentum to unite voters that won't involve demonizing Romney with much of the same campaign rhetoric. They can't possibly rally on their success, because there hasn't been any.

The VP debate. I will be glued to the set. Biden can't begin to stand toe to toe.

If the the RNC didn't succeed in nudging the undecided, then we have a bigger issue on our hands than Obama. It will mean a large percentage of the population are leaning towards big government with hands deep in our pockets and this is a frightening concept to me. Very frightening.

This election is make or break for the US.

One could rewrite this sentence substituting Republicans when the next convention rolls around. Either way, the next sentence is more pertinent.
This election will not be decided by the Republicans or the Democrats, it will be decided by Independents as we watch and listen to both sides...
As far as they are concerned there is no "other side". It is simply "not yet our side" as they cannot fathom that anyone could think differently from them.
I first remember seeing this written awhile back by a liberal in response to an editorial written by a conservative when conservatives were in power.... Nothing new...

T D, nothing new, but not attributable to both sides, equally.

Conservatives are a lot less likely to want to force-convert the other side as are liberals.

You know the saying that starts with "when a republican doesn't like guns he doesn't get any, a democrat wants to ban them" etc. etc.

11Fan, Mrs. WingSlinger was watching with me, although reluctantly. She prefers Judge Judy. The other two are in the West Wing, making sure the talking points are given as instructed.

Rubio: the problem is not that Obama is a bad person, the problem is that he is a bad president. Brilliant

I must admit, I wasn't this excited when McCain was at this podium 4 yrs ago.


Romney's time has come.

Convention Critique

Ann: Way to much Botox! As to past hardships she should follow the Rep platform which is: Tough Sh?t!

Condi: Appeared pissed off that Obama schooled her and the neocons by showing them how it is done. Libya, despot removed without one US soldier's death. Does not fit her model and really highlights all the ruined and lost US heroes lives due to a war of opportunistic greed in Iraq.

Clint: Sad, reminds me of Reagan in his second term.

Ryan: Even Fox news could not ignore all of his lies and called him out. I guess Fox is already looking to 2016.
