    One must presume this is the answer to the “Most Arrogant Man in the World” ad. Big whup. It is pretentious, obnoxious, loud and ARROGANT which means it is simply reinforcing what the Most Arrogant ad was saying in the first place.

    Isn’t Obama the one who wants a Do-Over?!

      Hey, Let me just say that angie has no singular claim to Reince or Sununu. We share here like sister wives. Or, by virtue of my advanced age, I get first dibs. 🙂

      • angienc says:

        Excuse me! I’m the one who is Greek Orthodox — he’s mine!

        I’ll share Sununu — he’s definitely man enough for both of us (no offense to Reince, but he’s a little on the slight side — I overlook it because of his Greek awesomeness — but there isn’t enough of him to go around).

      Reince is a class act. You know who’s not? Tom Brokaw & Joe Scarborough who should’ve slapped the degenerate fool down mid-sentence. Even Mika had the decency to show some disgust.

      • angienc says:

        Best part was Reince — who wasn’t allowed to get in more than 2 words in at a time before Matthews started yelling him down again — says toward the end of Matthews’ rampage — “That’s garbage.” to which Matthews classily responds “No, you’re garbage.” Mika says “Thank you for joining us Chairman Preibus. And thanks to Chris Matthews — I guess.”


        Of course, the delusional Obots think Matthews acting like an idiot means he pwnd Reince but he didn’t because when the person arguing with you is making an idiot of himself, don’t jump in & stop him (i.e.: Wise men never argue with fools because from a distance people can’t tell who is who).

        • cj says:

          I didn’t even hear him call Reince garbage, only found out about it after I read it on Hotair. That alone should get him fired, but incredibly, he told Politico that his bosses back him up!

          The only way to win the game Matthews plays is to shun MSNBC altogether & let them know why. I wish the GOP would take a hint from Hillary.

          Tweety is just living up to Obama’s expectations

    Late last night when I couldn’t sleep, I watched CNN’s series of interviews w/Romney, his wife, his son, others who know and work(ed) for him. Gloria Borger – or is it Borgia?. Anywho, it was interesting, showed him as a human being, was touching and also demo’d that he has done some amazing work. They didn’t do much to dispell the notions that it was his company that contributed to the downfall of some other businesses. (But I didn’t see the beginning of the program. It was late and I turned on teevee not knowing what was on.) Maybe someone else might want to look at it and tell what you took away from it. It wasn’t convincing that this man could be POTUS. Of course if it had been, TehOnce might have sent a plague of Tweety’s
    on CNN.

      I thought this documentary “Romney Revealed” was very interesting – liked it. Was very impressed with him and his story. As a former 2008 Dem I’m hoping like hell he’s elected President.

  5. cj says:

    I heard Candy Crowley spouting the same exact “need to reinvent Mitt at the convention” narrative the other night. I knew something was up, but I didn’t realize she was pushing the newest WH talking point almost word-for-word. Pathetic.

  6. cj says:

    lol ! Newt goes after Matthews, “what kind of racist thinking do you have?” [hope this embeds]

    Mark Levin, Michelle Malkin call to arms as Romney and GOPe exert power grab – more cronism:


    By: Julianne Thompson – National Delegate, Georgia

    Chairman Reince Preibus, members of the Rules Committee, and the entire voting delegation of the 2012 Republican National Convention:
    As a National Delegate to the 2012 RNC, I am extremely disappointed that a rule would be passed through committee that essentially strips the grassroots of all of it’s representative power by ridding State Parties of their ability to choose whom they will send as delegates and alternates to represent their State to the Republican National Convention. The rules change would allow the Presidential nominee sweeping new power to override that process and choose their own National Delegates. The rule also allows the RNC (with only a 3/4 vote) the power to amend the party’s rules without a vote by the full Republican National Convention.

    The GOP is the political Party of the grassroots. Our national delegates are the boots-on-the-ground that get Republicans elected. We are there for County meetings, State Conventions, National Conventions, and most importantly we spend our time and money canvassing our neighborhoods, going door to door, making phone calls, writing personal endorsement letters, and getting-out-the-vote for Republicans. We are the worker bees, and we are the heart and soul of the Republican Party.

    We have always believed that our Party is the one who best represents what it means to be an American…freedom! With your current attempt at this rules change, you are essentially striking the first blow that chips away at that freedom, and you disenfranchise the very people that turned the tide for the GOP in 2010 by returning power in the U.S. House of Representatives to Republicans

    I would like to hope that our nominee is unaware of the skullduggery that occurred with regard to this attempt at shutting out the people that have unified to help him win in November. The audacity of creating a firestorm when there is an opportunity for unity and peace that is needed to win back the Senate and take back the White House is irresponsible and I seriously question the motives of those behind this attempt.

    Why the change in rules? That is the million-dollar question, and it is fairly easy to answer. There are still those in place in the GOP and on campaigns that would like to use the delegate and alternate seats as rewards for donating large checks to campaigns and the RNC.
    If your desire is to win elections, then I strongly suggest that you engage the grassroots and show respect to those who help put you in power.

    During a time that should ring of unity, you have put the GOP at a crossroads. Do you want to win this election and future elections? Now is your opportunity to prove it. Either take it to the floor and let us vote it down, and better yet, pull this insulting attempt to disenfranchise the heart and soul of our Republican Party!

    Sincerely,Julianne Thompson, National Delegate for Mitt Romney – Georgia

    Mark LevinNational Delegate from Georgia objects to the power-grab

    👿 👿 👿

    Palin on Hannity at 8

    • Think she’ll go on about how the Dems were able to do this successfully in 2008, and that the Repubs will so not want do what the Dems did? Hardly anybody knows that is what happened during the Dem primary. Think this is a way that SP can drudge up this little-known-fact?

    So apparently, according to Obot friends, the election is over. Chris Matthews just destroyed Romney’s chances because of how he completely destroyed the RNC chair in this interview:


    • DandyTiger says:

      Like with the Bashir stuff, Matthews has lost it. And so have the Obots.

      • Mary says:

        They’re in panic mode. $150 million spent trying to trash Romney before the convention, and yet, the race is virtually TIED.

        If it weren’t so sad and obvious, it might be funny watching em all have major melt downs.

    • angienc says:

      Like I said upthread (sorry, I’m late to the party today — dealing with folks in NOLA/weather reports) the Obots are delusional. Matthews was trying to get Reince to “lose it” for a GOTCHA moment/clip and Reince kept his cool while Matthews made an ass of himself. To paraphrase n old saying: Reince let Matthews have all the rope he needed. For that alone, Reince destroyed Matthews, not the other way around.
      Anyone who thinks Matthews yelling over & refusing to let the other person speak = destroying him is just a testament to how boorish, vile and disrespectful Obama’s “new civility” is. And, of course, they were voting for Obama anyway.

    Almost 3,000 words, but I think I nailed it. Feels good.
