Good Blogg PN and spot on. The Republicans however are in blood sport mode to get to BHO. The same as they were to get Bill Clinton. When it came to Bill they impeached NOT because they HAD to do it. But because they COULD do it.
The nation wants them to take care of business at hand; infrastructure, military draw downs in Afghanistan, dealing with Bank and Student loans, fuel alternatives, etc.
If they keep at what their doing, their non-stop pursuit of BHO, I think it will backfire big time come mid-term elections.
I am looking forward to the mid-term elections. I expect the Repubicans to gain in the House and in the Senate.
You may or may not be correct Sebeoreno.
My money is they latest polls showing 78% in favor of the BHO adimisitration tending to things, like infrastructure, jobs, housing initatives, lowering of student loans, gettin people back to work.
We shall see.
Rachel Maddow is an opinion show and as of today Bill O'Reilly is the most balanced of all opinion shows. He don't give Republicans or Democrats a pass on anything; however if you really believe in truth and justice for all you need to check out some real journalism with Bret Baier at 6pm M-F on Fox and also 9a-5p for even more journalism, no hate whatsoever.
Right over wrong is always better than Republican over Democrat or vice versa.
I expect the Republicans to lose seats. Their plan- to continue bashing the POTUS and his administration is going to back fire...people are more concerned with the way things are shaping up than the GOP daily gossip column.
MSNBC ratings are down but it had a lot to do with the latest trials and people tuning into Fox for the so called Obama scandals. CNN is up because they spent a lot of air time on the murder trial. HLN is number 1 because they focus on reality/entertainment news. I expect MSNBC to pick ratings up this month.
PN, I grew up a Democrat and JFK tops my list from that party. No one in the Democrat party is like him at all today. Bill Clinton is the closest and I give him high marks in regards to economic leadership and his theory of triangulating with Republicans which lead to American prosperity. Remember the quote” Keep your friends close and your enemies closer” that’s why I watch MSNBC and CNN and Fox so that I may be informed to the best of my ability. Why don’t you try Brett Baier out every once and a while, if you believe in the truth you will find skepticism there, no hate. And since you like ratings, check out these to boot.
Pn, is this blowing smoke too?
Pn, Chris Matthews is on point here about the IRS why don’t you listen to him?
PN, not sure why you still think the current administrations hands are clean? If it smells like poo poo, it's poo poo, and there has been a whole lot of poo poo coming out of the white house the last three months.
I wouldn't be surprised if MSNBC totally revamped their format. They can't continue to scrape the bottom of the ratings barrel and still survive. The last article I saw indicated that they were at an all-time ratings low, with Maddow's show being the lowest of the low.
I'll pass along one personal anecdote about MSNBC. Before I switched to DIRECTV back in 2007, I was a Comcast Cable subscriber. One of the news channels in my package was MSNBC, and at that time I routinely watched MSNBC - daily. In addition to their news coverage, I regularly tuned in to Chris Matthews and a few of the other "analysis" programs.
One day while channel surfing I noticed that I wasn't getting a signal on the MSNBC channel. With Comcast cable, I just figured "oh, well..." and didn't bother to call to report the outage, since my experience with Comcast was that outages were FREQUENT, and they had the world's WORST customer service. So I decided to just wait and let them fix the problem on their own.
Well - I WAITED *SIX WEEKS* - and still no signal on the MSNBC channel. I then called Comcast to inquire whether MSNBC had been removed from the cable package and was told no. After another two weeks, the channel returned to the air. I called Comcast again to inquire what the problem was and they essentially said it was "technical difficulties" with a link, switch, or some other gizmo at the local transmission station, and that the only channel affected was MSNBC. Here's the interesting part:
I was told by the Comcast customer service rep THAT I WAS THE ONLY PERSON WHO CALLED IN TO REPORT THE OUTAGE - IN THE ENTIRE VIEWING AREA! Translation: Even back then, nobody - at least in this area - watched or really cared squat about MSNBC.
Based on their national ratings, it appears that nothing has changed.
