If its Monday, it must be empty chair day… [Open Thread]

But have no fear, the media started today out with new marching orders…

Yes, Obama may be AWOL, but the media is happy to shift the focus to Romney:

  • Romney abruptly shifts strategy–Politico
     
  • Inside the CampaignHow Mitt Romney stumbled–Politico
     
  • Blogs pounce on Romney’s stumbles–Politico
     

 
As Memeorandum illustrates, Romney is the topic of the day.

Well, Romney isn’t the real story of the day. No, not so easy. The Middle East didn’t kindly cease and desist for Obama, nor did the economy.

  • Obama’s Libyan Story Collapsing–Fox News
     
  • Intel Source Challenges Obama’s Account of Deadly Consulate Attack–Fox News
     
  • Obama’s Mideast Meltdown–NewsWeek
     
  • The day Obama jumped the shark–Flopping Aces
     

And the Middle East is not the only news spot. The American economy continues to falter:

  • The Obama Administration reports that for every dollar raised in tax revenue, the U.S. is falling three dollars farther into debt–Treasury Department
     
  • Easy question, easier answer; America not better off under Obama–Boston Herald.
     
  • Chicago court delays Emanuel’s bid to put striking teachers back to work–Fox News
     

 
And by the way, is peeing at an Obama event a political statement about the president?

What’s catching your attention in the news today?

    Matthew, I hope you post If its Monday, it must be empty chair day… [Open Thread] every week.

    Here’s what happened to me as the result of the non-stop Obama propaganda being pushed out in the 2008 election. I stopped watching CNN. I stopped believing what the Associated Press wrote. I stopped buying what the MSM said hook line and sinker.

    I started reading more conservative blogs just to get relief from all the Obama hype, and now my daily news comes from places like No Quarter, Breitbart, The Blaze, HillBuzz, and the Daily Caller. I subscribe to Glenn Beck’s TV network now. I would *not* have started reading all those right-leaning websites if the MSM hadn’t tried so hard to shove Obama down my throat. As a result, I know understand conservative thought a lot more, and I’m totally awake to how the Democrats brainwash people through their allies in the media.

    The MSM basically PUSHED me to the right because I could NOT get any sort of unbiased coverage of Obama in the mainstream press. I actually don’t consider myself conservative, but I’m most certainly not the far-left socialist the Obama Democrats want us to be! The MSM only has itself to blame for losing me as a customer. And let me tell you, I was about as liberal as they come. But I couldn’t stand the lies any longer.

    • http://www.theindependentview.com/ Matthew J. Weaver

      Great observation. I think there are a lot of folks around here and across the country that are finding through the Internet that the MSM has become a propaganda arm of Obama. (I almost wrote White House but that’d suggest it might have been one for Bush and it definitely was not. No this is something rather unique to Obama).

    • CathyInKs

      Beyond Partisan – I did the same too and I also was liberal particularly on the social issues. Now I’ve done a 180 – particularly on abortion. I found out what “partial birth abortion” really was and I was sickened particularly when I found out State Senator Obama supported this! Like Gov. Susanna Martinez, I found out I was really a republican!

    • http://www.facebook.com/mary.cusack Mary Cusack

      Ditto. this is exactly what happened to me. I am astonished between the me of 2008 who went for hillary and me now. Glenn Beck???? yes glen beck

        Glenn Beck rocks. And I’m so happy to see his network is now on Dish. Part of the reason I subscribe is to give a big middle finger to the mainstream media. The better he does, the more their heads are going to explode!

    two things struck me today about the lack of media attention

    first nothing on today being Constitution Day but a story about it being the 150th anniversary of the battle of Sharpsburg

    second no outrage over backtrack campaigning while our country is being attacked.

    the other day on the internet I read this

    suppose on December 7 1941 FDR said

    our hearts bleed for those killed and injured at Pearl Harbor. Got to go now there is a fundraiser at Clark Gable’s house

    how would the media reacted then?

    • PatW

      Eleven months prior to FDR’s “today is a day that will live in infamy” address to the nation, on January 6, 1941, FDR delivered his State of the Union address to Congress. Whether one agrees with FDR’s domestic policies or despises them, one cannot ever dispute that he recognized evil in the world and that evil had to be vanquished and not appeased. Here are his exact words:

      No realistic American can expect from a
      dictator’s peace international generosity, or return of true independence, or world disarmament, or freedom of expression, or freedom of religion -or even good business. Such a peace would bring no security for us or for our neighbors. “Those, who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” As a nation, we may take pride in the fact that we are softhearted; but we cannot afford to be soft-headed. We must always be wary of those who with sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal preach the “ism” of appeasement. We must especially beware of that small group of selfish men who would clip the wings of the American eagle in order to feather their own nests. I have recently pointed out how quickly the tempo of modern warfare could bring into our very midst the physical attack which we must eventually expect if the dictator nations win this war.

      What FDR is telling us is that the ideologies of foreign powers that do not share our inherent values of liberty and freedom cannot be appeased, and that doing business with them in an attempt to create an economic co-dependence will only result in loss of our own liberty and freedoms as final agreement to international transactions become conditioned upon acceptance of some repulsive political criteria.

      FDR also saw that partisanship directed to national security goals.was a recipe for disaster and defeat. the goals should not be partisan, although the means to attain those goals should always be open to healthy partisan debate. FDR saw those goals as:

      First, by an impressive expression of the
      public will and without regard to partisanship, we are committed to all-inclusive national defense.
      Second, by an impressive expression of the public will and without regard to partisanship, we are committed to full support of all those resolute peoples, everywhere, who are resisting aggression and are thereby keeping war away from our Hemisphere. By this support, we express our determination that the democratic cause shall prevail; and we strengthen the defense and the security of our own nation.
      Third, by an impressive expression of the public will and without regard to partisanship, we are committed to the proposition that principles of morality and considerations for our own security will never permit us to acquiesce in a peace dictated by aggressors and sponsored by appeasers. We know that enduring peace cannot be bought at the cost of other people’s freedom.

      In those three goals, FDR said what we all believe, we need a strong national defense, we need to stand by our friends and allies, and we shall never compromise our liberties and freedoms for peace.

      This particular State of the Union address has been coined as the Four Freedoms speech, so named for the four essential human freedoms FDR set forth as:

      The first is freedom of speech and expression —everywhere in the world.
      The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way—everywhere in the world.
      The third is freedom from want—which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants-everywhere in the world.
      The fourth is freedom from fear—which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor anywhere in the world.

  • HObama HObamanana

    What really disturbs me is the Obama Administration and their liberal idiot allies seem to believe that they can bamboozle the rest of us to accept that the attack on the 11th anniversary of the September 11th attacks is merely a coincidence. Even more disturbing is that so many people buy into this bullshit, including the media of all people. Have we learned nothing as a country? It seems that the Obama foreign policy is sticking our heads in the sand while our enemies stick it up our ass.

      Judge Souter is correct. One glaring example is the insistence by many Bushbots and Obamabots that each was/is the CIC of the American people. The answer to that is NO the President is NOT. the President is the CIC of the US Armed Forces ONLY.

      The fact that both extreme leader worshipping groups mostly agreed, at least on this topic, explains why it’s so easy to misinform the American public.
      Every time someone says this I get frustrated. Then I wonder what, if anything, is being taught in our schools.

    • JohnnyTwoDog

      Wow. I had to look at that video a few times again because I can’t believe I saw some real reporting. Can that be? Is it possible on NBC? Reporting that contradicts OFA?

  • HObama HObamanana

    The latest hoopla hitting the scene, are (secret) videos revealed at Mother Jones in which Mitt Romney is being honest about the election. He states, rightly, that there are 47% of the population that are dependent on government, who consider food, healthcare, housing and all that as things they are entitled to. And he says frankly that it’s not his job to worry about them because they will vote for Obama no matter what he says. He also states the truth that they pay no income taxes.

    In the second video he states that the people in the middle he has to reach are the ones who voted for Obama. And he doesn’t believe that they want to be told they made a mistake, that it’s all Obama’s fault. This is where I disagree with him. People don’t need to be told that directly, but they do need to be told that Obama is corrupt, that he lied to them and has done bad things. They need to be reminded of it every single day, several times a day. Because if Romney isn’t out there doing it, no one will be telling them that truth.

    Typically, the Obama camp jumps in to make it appear as if Romney doesn’t care about them which isn’t what he said or what he meant. But that’s how the Obama folk roll. Facts mean nothing. It’s the spin that counts.

    I’d like to see Romney do more of this truth telling. Be honest with the American people about our very serious fiscal and global problems. And point out in language no one can ignore why Obama is incapable of solving them. Then offer common sense solutions.

    It’s probably not the smartest campaign advice someone might give him. It’s not playing it safe, not being diplomatic. But haven’t we heard enough bullshit promises from politicians to last more than a few lifetimes? Isn’t believing in those promises or putting up with their lies exactly how we got into this mess to begin with? I say go for it.

      I saw that. Is that what the OFAbots are fussing about here? I thought maybe they had a tape of Romney saying he did not have sex with that woman or something like that.

      Romney says the 47% of voters supporting Obama will never vote for Romney. And Romney says he can never convince them otherwise. Wow. Thats a real campaign buster alright. I’ll bet he said Nancy Pelosi won’t vote for him either.

      Here are questions for the OFAbots.
      Is it a problem that 47 % of voters are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing?

      Is it a problem that OFA represents and promises government handouts that can’t be paid? (see CA cities going bankrupt)

      Or is it a problem because Romney identified it?

    • beachnan

      I agree the bullshit needs to stop. People know the truth. They are experiencing it on a daily basis in the way of no jobs, lost homes, higher food and gas costs. People are not better off. They can say it’s getting better, but it’s not. Stop peeing on my leg and telling me it’s raining. I know better.

I just got mad and turned it off. All I could think our embassies are being targeted throughout the world and these idiots are supposedly excited about Romney stating the truth. My opinion – Romney’s shoring up his base – those who still pay income tax. I was ready to make another donation to Romney’s campaign. Think I will later today since it’s already “tomorrow” as I type.

    I came across this quote in an article earlier today:

    If you increase taxes in a market paralyzed by lack of financing, declining consumption and uncertainty about the future, it’s inevitable that demand will fall even further.

    So is this the latest from Paul Ryan prognosticating about the U.S. economy on the campaign trail?

    No, it is about Spain, that socialist country currently sinking Europe with its high taxes and uncontrollable debt. The quote is from Juan Antonio Sanchez, President of Ganvam, which is the Spanish automobile trade association.

    The Spanish government tried once again to follow the failed economic policy of raising taxes during a recession to raise revenue for government spending in attempt to stimulate the economy. but as Margaret Thatcher once famously said, eventually you run out of other people’s money.

    The Spanish government raised the VAT by 21% and new auto sales fell by 28%. Moving Forward!

        Rombots are already preparing to hit the grief notes, while Romney prepares for his kickass concession speech! Like the way the Obama-Clinton Team planned this out, not for the last 6 months, but since 2009 February. They knew the GOP moneybags would use the only thing they have – money bags – to defeat Obama, since they had decided right from election day 2008 that Obama must be defeated. So Rombot was going to be the candidate. So a trap was prepared for the Rombot, and boy genius Rove and Rombot and his fake sub-2 hour marathoner – the Lyin’ Ryan walked into it. The trap is closing now, and the Obama-Clinton plan is working just fine. No GOPer will be Potus for another 20 years – the time it will take for the GOP to purge itself of corrupt pseudoscience bigots. The US needs the next 20 years to become the New New Deal, marshalled by FDR and Truman and managed by IKE and LBJ.
        Not to worry me hearties

          Rombots. Now that’s a funny word. Did they teach you that over at the Koz Playground? You know the difference between Obots and the rest of us? We don’t need no stinkin talking points to speak OUR minds.

      • JohnnyTwoDog

        That is why they have been delayed.

      There’s more interesting stuff. The video of Rombot with his gazillionaire friends where he freely expresses contempt for half of his countrymen. No link needed. It’s gone viral and Mitt’s name is now tarnished. what cheek, a guy who show us his tax returns criticises his hard working fellow Americans? How could you guys come up with a candidate like this?

      • JohnnyTwoDog

        “what cheek, a guy who show us his tax returns criticises”
        This is a sign of OFA panic and hard drinking.
        Time to hit the Hopium pipe jbeck, you’ll feel better. Won’t be better, just feel better.

        Contempt? He speaks the truth about 47% of the population. Asshole, slackers like you that believe the government should give them a free ride.

      • http://www.facebook.com/dawn.bushey.3 Dawn Bushey

        see the thing is JBeck most of the 47% won’t see themselves that way, it’ll be the other guy he’s talking about and the ones that do, Romney wouldn’t have gotten their votes anyway. Unfortunately for you the moochers will believe the polls and won’t bother to vote. that’s the problem when you rig the polls sometimes your own people don’t vote.

        Check back tomorrow, I have a post on Romney’s rather matter-of-fact and non-controversial remarks. Maybe you’ll take a listen and read so you can offer a reasoned comment.

      • FLDemFem

        “criticizes his hard-working fellow Americans”? People on welfare don’t work, that’s why they “need” welfare, so how can they be “hard-working”?

    • JohnnyTwoDog

      Intrade up for O? Wow Obotville is really in panic mode.

    • HObama HObamanana

      Oh gosh, you are so right lola. The media has been so pro-Romney and anti-Obama that I must have forgot. They’ve hidden it so well.

        Maybe he’s pissing on Romney’s Presidential hopes, Matt. Your boy has really stepped in it now saying anyone who supports Obama is a moochers. Yeah, I know that just kills among you and the other NQbots but it might just be his suicide note.

        • http://www.theindependentview.com/ Matthew J. Weaver

          Your comment is banal and incomprehensible. About par for a troll.

          • Dbb3

            Incomprehensible? Maybe you haven’t heard about the unplugged Mitt unwittingly recorded before an audience of wealthy backers. You’ll hear about it soon enough, pal.

              That “Spontanious Protest ” story isn’t working out so well is it Dbb3? “But I killed Osama” spiking isn’t going so well anymore either is it?

                You think having diner with Auchi or MO dining with Farrekan is all the rage?
                If Obama is so cool why is his administration burning American flags? Huh?

          hmm you don’t think romney’s campaign let that secret video out do you? its like a free campaign ad with the mainstream media racing to promote it. kinda defines the race us gun owning bible clinger loving america vs the moochers

          • http://www.theindependentview.com/ Matthew J. Weaver

            Agreed. I am now transcribing it and will have a new post up shortly. So far, the video and Romney’s comments are right on, non-controversial, and very, very reasonable. Only the blindest Obama Kool-Aid drinker will find offense.

            The moochers are not the ones who accept government help out of desperation, while continuing to actively seek work. The moochers are the ones who don’t want to work, those who have babies in order to draw that check, those who lie to get on disability, those who don’t have a dog in the fight when it comes to raising and lowering taxes. Don’t claim they don’t exist. I see it all the time in my small county and, by the way, the majority of moochers are white. We also have a nearly 15% unemployment rate, so obviously I don’t mean those who are out of work through no fault of their own. As one who worked and paid taxes all my life, I resent the hell out of moochers.

        • JohnnyTwoDog

          Looks more like he’s pissing on himself. It runs downhill you know.

          Looks like Obots are getting paid overtime for spreading disinfo again…the Obama team must be getting desperate.

        • FormerLiberal9

          I listened to these “secret tapes” truly shocking!!!!! LOL.

          There wasn’t one thing said in them that I didn’t agree with wholeheartedly. Unlike the secret tapes of Obama where he talked about “clingling to their guns and religion”. There were no insulting comments made in Romney’s speech.

          So take your joy back to the rest of your no brain friends at the Obama Campaign and raise a toast of Koolaide to the ONE.

          • http://www.theindependentview.com/ Matthew J. Weaver

            A new article just posted on NoQuarterUSA discussing these “Secret Tapes”. Please read and join the discussion.

        • FLDemFem

          Well, as a non-moocher, I agree with Romney. And we non-moochers outnumber the moochers by several million. And a lot of the recent additions to the welfare rolls are people whose livelihood disappeared into the maw of the Obama economy. So Romney will get their votes too. They want their jobs back and there is no chance that will happen with Obama in office.
