i guess they took the site down? wow , it must've been good....

Think for yourself......Question authority...

The site

might be down.. I can't view it either

I can't believe this fucking show

When they show the NH poll, they vocalize who #1, 2 and 4 is (romney, newt and huntsman), but skip over #3 who is very close to newt and way ahead of huntsmen - who just happens to be Ron Paul.

It's amazing that they are still doing this, long after the Daily Show pointed it out.

I hate the media. I really do.

good watch

i like this !!

That was fun to watch...they

That was fun to watch...they were all laughing, as if the idea of Newt Gingrich being a true conservative was comical.

You know something is up when the very liberal MSNBC starts laughing at Newt Gingrich’s, ‘Conservative Principles.’

Scarborough compared Gingrich to Romney in terms of flip flopping!

Have the major news networks finally figured it out? Have they finally come to their senses? Are they waking up?

This is a great sign....thanks Joe.

Never be afraid to ask simple questions.

Gingrich and Cain

And to think fmr Governor Mark Sanford chose not to run for President because he thought he would be rejected by Republican voters.

Gingrich and Cain poll numbers over the last month or so has to be giving Sanford some renewed optimism in the future of his political career.

If Republican voters attitude toward Gingrich or Cain is any kind of conservative values indicator, I dare say Howard Stern very well could be the 2024 GOP nominee for POTUS. Or who knows, maybe even Larry Flynt.


classic, that's good stuff. IF they weren't so excited about it I would recommend sending it to others but it's what many of the traditional GOP would almost seethe over as some sort of liberal smear campaign. But, well, maybe it's still worth sending the link....

Gingrich is a classic psychopath

1) Stays with loyal/devoted spouses until they get sick, then dumps them like old food (TWICE).
2) Thinks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING of the untold thousands that are killed/maimed in the wars he promotes.

More a reptile than man.

Gingrich is a classic psychopath

so sorry for the double post !

Scarborough Proves a Useful Idiot Here

He had Dr. Paul on a few times and led some very favorable interviews, so I started watching the show in the gym every morning. Then I began to notice time and time again when he mentioned the GOP Field for 2012 he made many blanket statements about the field that applied to all of them except for Dr. Paul. He just threw Dr. Paul under the bus when he could have told the truth and differentiated him. I don't think he's any kind of an ally. He's conservative-lite, perfect for MSNBC.


I'd have to agree...

Joe has let me down in this regard. It's almost as if he is afraid that he will lose some kind of credibility or even his job for speaking what is really on his mind. I know that he is not as much of a supporter as he comes off as in regards to Huntsman.. and there is no way in his heart and soul that he is as little of a supporter of Paul as he lets off, as well.

If there is one thing that I wish that Joe would see in the coming weeks, it is this:

Stand up Joe.

When injustice becomes law - rebellion becomes duty.


Joe Scarborough

And I would add, AND HAVE SOME BALLS! Give credit where credit is due, even if it means losing your job!

but JOE said he didn't like Ron Paul's "foreign policy"...

so, I don't think JOE is such a RP supporter, not really...

Supposedly his son is..

I put him in the same boat as Dylan Ratigan.. Is there anyone in media that you could trust, aside from the Judge? And even that's remarkable, being that he's on FOX..

market competition

if he's the best we can get then i guess we will have to take it.. whether he has his hands tied one way or another. if he mentions other candidates but it's mostly negative, that's still to our advantage for one thing. if we can't find our perfect host on networks that people actually watch, then it makes no practical sense to attack what little we have.

He is paid by the establishment

Yes he has had many positive segments on Dr Paul, has had him on the show and has been glowing in support.


He is - in the end - at the mercy of the corporate network that fronts him and pays his salary ...

And they limit what he can say.

They *tell* him to guide the conversations they way they say, and set the parameters of who to focus on, and who not to.

Never forget these networks are not free press.

They are NOT on our side.


To get these..FACTS...about Newt to the American people !!

Please...Take the time to SPREAD THESE FACTS to...YOUR...Circle of Friends and Family and to YOUR REGION of the NET !!!

We have already taken down Rick Perry and Herman Cain...Now we take down Newt. (And when we do there are NO OTHER BIG MEDIA "front Runner" FRAUDS LEFT for them to PUSH !!!)

....Doctor Ron Paul will see you now America !!!

how about taking down romney as well?

joe said on that video that romney is a personal friend of his. well, that is trouble right there. no friend of romney can be too useful or have much integrity.

also, as newt will fade, how about taking down romney instead? he doesn't get hit at all, hence he glides to the nomination. then, we will wonder how he snuck by. that is because noone has the courage to take him on.

how about a quick 3 min video on why romney's flip flops matter and how similar he is to obama.


Can you say...


I was actually excited to

I was actually excited to hear that newt was making headway in new Hampshire. With that big endorsement he will actually chop away at mitts lead giving Ron Paul a chance to break away with a strong lead.

Always positive.

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

The more the merrier

The more the merrier.

Am thinking your signature about smoking is not conducive to attracting old-school conservatives. Consider if what you display will help us the next six months. Do you care enough to help us?

Was I the only one that heard

Was I the only one that heard the enormous applause after Ron Paul said to end the war on drugs last debate?

Besides, 'smoke weed' is not to be taken literally. It's an idea for people to chill out and be peaceful towards one another rather than lashing out and being angry or bitter.

Sort of like when people who accuse me of not caring about Ron Paul and his message...

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

I TOTALLY agree with you duude...

So I changed my byline too!

It's not to be taken literally, just an idea for people to chill out and be peaceful towards one another ;)

End Wars. Get Krunked. Ron Paul.

(totally awesome, right?)

Never knew those two were on

Never knew those two were on the same level. I guess people who smoke have the same agenda as those who get 'crunk'

Thank you for the invaluable lesson.

End the Fed. End the Wars. Problems Solved. Ron Paul.

there are plenty of old-school conservatives...

...who (like me) smoked that sheet for about 20 years earlier in life. We get that all it does is make you drowsy (and probably eventually dull-minded) and even the ones who never imbibed understand that, if harmful at all, it is about #9,000 on the list.

It also repairs brain function...

THC has been shown to slow and even reverse the neuro-degenerative disease, Alzheimer's. Who would have thought that cannabinoids act as neuroprotectants? I guess the government does, because they own a patent on it. Many brains could be saved if individuals had the legal choice to help themselves.

Newt's a great American.

Newt's a great American.


Having seen Newt in person, I will agree that Newt is great as in big.

Newt is also great at feeding at the DC lobbyist feeding trough.
