hey guys

Hey Harleigh!
adlib 2 months ago
Just watching all the know-it-alls on MSNBC condemning Obama for acting against ISIS…but not acting enough before.
adlib 2 months ago
Hey AL. Obama has never done anything right according to pundits other than save our economy and the banks and wall street did that! LOLOLOLOl
Harleigh

2 months ago
You should have seen Chuck Todd frothing about Obama while no doubt pleasuring himself below the desk.
adlib 2 months ago
He even looks like a wanker.
Harleigh

2 months ago
He’s the type of guy who would slap fight with his head turned and his eyes closed if ever really confronted. What a douche.
adlib 2 months ago
He would fit in much better at faux that’s a fact.
Harleigh

2 months ago
Or an elementary school playground.
adlib 2 months ago
Griffen lead MSNBC down to the bottom when he lost Olberman and schults. They were the fire. Maddow and Odonnel are OK but Sharpton and Mathews just SUCK.
Harleigh

2 months ago
I’m not crazy about O’Donnell either, so much ego and so wrong so often because of it. Maddow is good and Chris Hayes, that’s about it for me.
adlib 2 months ago
Hayes will at least let an interviewee answer a question, the rest of them just blab right overwith their own opinions and never stfu.
Harleigh

Rev. Al seems to have a wireless teleprompter wired into his brain.
adlib 2 months ago
I cannot stand to try and listen to him or mathews anymore. by the end of every segment their voice rises by at least 4 octaves and 20 decibels.
Harleigh

2 months ago
They have become PALINS!!! LMAO
Harleigh

2 months ago
MSNBP?
adlib 2 months ago
Brilliant!
Harleigh

2 months ago
So they say that around 70% of America approves of action against ISIS but on MSNBC, it’s 100% against. Huh?
adlib 2 months ago
I have not been watchin MSNBC for months. I have to admit I don’t know what military stuff we still have in the region and I have not read MY intel briefins every day! Bombing 2 – 4 countries daily sounds real expensive.
Harleigh

2 months ago
hey murph!
Harleigh

2 months ago
Bombs cost money? No one told us Americans anything like that!
adlib 2 months ago
Hey Murph!
adlib 2 months ago
Bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb, bomb SYRIA….SYYYYRRRRIIIIAAAA…Cheney’s sweet music sung in harmoney with McCain while Kelly Ayotte does dance moves
murphthesurf3

LOL! Mclame thinks that they all come from the bomb fairy.
Harleigh

Hello Ad, Harliegh, Beatlex and Harleigh……
murphthesurf3

McCain should be riding a bomb down onto ISIS in a remake of Dr. Strangelove.
adlib 2 months ago
he would probably cause it to go off course and miss like in Nam.lol
Harleigh

2 months ago
The only man who could make a bomb crash land.
adlib 2 months ago
so we just click on Obama pic to watch the speech?
Harleigh

The picture at the bottom of the post, that’s a live feed YouTube embed.
adlib 2 months ago
action!
Harleigh

2 months ago
Here we go!
adlib 2 months ago
Hey Kes!
adlib 2 months ago
I hope he doesn’t keep drumming his hands on the fuckin podium….
Harleigh

2 months ago
Hey, kids! Here we go!
kesmarn

2 months ago
That’s my biggest concern. wink
adlib 2 months ago
Bin Ladin, check.
adlib 2 months ago
The question is, does Obama’s presentatiion of ISIS help them by making them look as a more substantial power?
adlib 2 months ago
I don’t know that I’m as comfortable with the promotion of, “They could train Americans there who could come back here and commit acts of terrorism.” It is the same, “Fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them there,” that Bush pushed.
adlib 2 months ago
I mean, “Fight them over there so we don’t have to fight them here”.
adlib 2 months ago
It’s kinda sad that every argument has to have a base in self-interest. But that’s modern day Murka…
kesmarn

2 months ago
Kes – It’s how you scare Americans into fighting wars they can’t afford.
adlib 2 months ago
Supporting them, really.
adlib 2 months ago
That’s basically it.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Wonder where Assad is going to end up when this is all over with…
kesmarn

2 months ago
Miami
Harleigh

2 months ago
There goes the neighborhood, Harleigh…
kesmarn

2 months ago
I heard the MSNBOZOS saying that this plan would cement Assad in place.
adlib 2 months ago
I like the word “cement” — but in a slightly different context.
kesmarn

2 months ago
lol as in ker-plunk
Harleigh

2 months ago
A kinda Jimmy Hoffa context?
kesmarn

2 months ago
As in “cement shoes”.
adlib 2 months ago
And Congress is too cowardly to vote on this!
adlib 2 months ago
Pretty much. And the Mrs. would look good in those pumps too. She’s hardly an innocent here.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Boneher has always been a do nothing drunk coward.
Harleigh

2 months ago
It would be so wonderful if he lost this election. But not likely, unfortunately.
kesmarn

2 months ago
yep
Harleigh

2 months ago
Please put mccain in one of thos planes.
Harleigh

2 months ago
Er…he’s talking about the economy now???
adlib 2 months ago
I’m confused…
kesmarn

2 months ago
man u fac…..WHA???
Harleigh

2 months ago
A forced political pro-Dem message as part of a “We’re strong, America!” background for fighting this war.
adlib 2 months ago
Is this to counter the notion that the right is putting out that he thinks America is no longer #1?
kesmarn

2 months ago
Kes – The GOP is tyring to use this like everything else to say that America has only declined under Obama.
adlib 2 months ago
I’ve never seen the level of back-stabbing while the Prez is under so much pressure from people like Putin and the guys in ISIS. Pretty disgusting.
kesmarn

2 months ago
A Lincolnesque Quality to that Speech I think
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Hey, Murph. Calm and rational.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Well he is black, thats all the reason they need.
Harleigh

2 months ago
Kes – What’s the old saying about politics ending at the water’s edge? Hey, the Repubs have cheered on Putin, who could be surprised at their ongoing attacks on America and its President?
adlib 2 months ago
And Putin is pulling stupid stunts like doing an ICBM test today? What a hero for the right. :-(
kesmarn

2 months ago
Saudis just announced that they will provide training bases for Syrian fighters and its highest council of clerics has declared ISIS to be an enemy of Islam
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Murph – I don’t know, I think he should have led with a strong description of America and its conscience tthen gone into the ISIS details.
adlib 2 months ago
Finally the Saudi’s speak?
kesmarn

2 months ago
Murph – But the Saudis have been financing ISIS…how earnest are they being now?
adlib 2 months ago
ad….saudis cutting their losses
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
good speech
Harleigh

2 months ago
At least we’re still holding to the “no boots on the ground” line. Thank goodness.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Murph – Yes, I think Obama has come down very hard on them. Just wonder if they’re just going to go through the motions.
adlib 2 months ago
I have PBS on. Anyone else getting the “pudnuts'” take on this? On the corporate-owned networks?
kesmarn

2 months ago
Kes – MSNBOZOS whining about not hearing what they wanted to hear…like their own names???
adlib 2 months ago
lol AdLib
foodchain

2 months ago
smiley What did they want to hear? (And you’re right…besides their own names?)
kesmarn

2 months ago
Hey, foodchain! How are you?
kesmarn

2 months ago
pretty good, pretty busy, juggling
foodchain

2 months ago
Good to see you here tonight.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Obama gave the general outline, a broad vision, and kept a lot of his cards close.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Miss you guys; just don’t have time to be here the way I want to be here. Hard to just pop in
foodchain

2 months ago
Watching Al Jazeera now. Is anyone else
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
What are they saying?
kesmarn

2 months ago
Foodchain! Nice to see you!
adlib 2 months ago
good to be here!
foodchain

2 months ago
Food chain…long time no see
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
hey murph
foodchain

2 months ago
Murph – Good point, this was a brief, general presentation of the plan and the pundits are chewing up socks because it was.
adlib 2 months ago
wow, Al Sharpton putting things in perspective
foodchain

2 months ago
Since I don’t have cable I’ll have to rely on y’all to pass along the main comments.
kesmarn

2 months ago
AJA is focusing on the response in the Mideast by the powers that will need to be drawn into an alliance…point being made is that the primary need to neuralize forward movement, to close down the borders where oil is flowing out and recruits are flowing in and to hift to more and more Kurdish authority.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Murph – Those are far more pragmatic points than MSNBC is making.
adlib 2 months ago
This has got to feel very strange to the Kurds — after Saddam and then Al-Maliki — to be taken seriously as a force in the area.
kesmarn

2 months ago
The Kurds or anyone else would be a fool to rely on merika
Harleigh

2 months ago
I don’t know that they have a lot of choice at this point, Harleigh…
kesmarn

2 months ago
AJA is speaking of a “generalized, paced, incremental escalation, systematic, comprehensive, sustained”
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
they have no choices at all kes, us or nuttin
Harleigh

2 months ago
and I hope this coalition is not deja vu
foodchain

2 months ago
I’m so glad this Prez is at the helm.
kesmarn

2 months ago
AJA is saying that a list of nations in the coalition was not there to give them some cover because those nations have to bring their people on board.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
me too Kes
foodchain

2 months ago
maybe we can get poland to put up 50 cooks this time!
Harleigh

2 months ago
Right, Murph. This isn’t supposed to be a coalition-on-paper-only.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Harleigh, how about it! Oh Canada. mais oui Francais
foodchain

2 months ago
AJA- pundits keep hitting those words again- “generalized, paced, incremental escalation, systematic, comprehensive, sustained”
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
AJA- making it clear…..the U.S. is NOT sticking its jaw out and not taking on the burden….
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Sounds like the coalition is going to give ISIS plenty of opportunity to cool down and reconsider. We shall see if they’re even able to think in those terms.
kesmarn

2 months ago
AJA from Jerusalem…Iran and Saudi Arabia on board, Turkey on board, Israel providing staging reouurces
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
foodchain I don’t know that Canada wants to do this again… but they should airdrop Rob Ford into an ISIS town! LOL
Harleigh

2 months ago
hahaha.
foodchain

2 months ago
Jordan, Kuwait, UAE behind the scenes
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Kes – Imagine how President Romney would be handling this.
adlib 2 months ago
Sounds like Kerry and the Prez have spent a lot of time on the phone over the last few days getting people on board.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Kes – so you think it’s better with Obama than it would be with a Mclame-Falin admin??? LOL
Harleigh

2 months ago
Murph, not having kep up–I’ve stayed away for a while because I’m unhappy with dems a bit. this adding of Middle East leaders is the first best sign
foodchain

2 months ago
OMG, AdLib. I shudder to think. He’d be taking orders from Cheney.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Pres. Romney: “I support Putin’s hostile takeover of Ukraine and ISIS’ of Iraq and Syria.”
adlib 2 months ago
Bush had a way of sounding like he said a lot and then analysis reveal he said little. Obama is the opposite.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
And Harleigh, McPalin would have nuke the whole ME as a pre-emptive during the inaugural ball.
kesmarn

2 months ago
you got that right murph
Harleigh

2 months ago
LMFAO @ Kes
Harleigh

2 months ago
wink
kesmarn

2 months ago
The Bain Capital approach to Ukraine, AdLib.
kesmarn

Bill Neely NBC News Damascus correspondent…knows his stuff…say to watch the Pres. words….Iraq Now, Syria Later
murphthesurf3

Just think of all the smarmy interviews we have missed fom Myths wife, Money BooBoo
Harleigh

2 months ago
Wonder what her First Lady cause would have been… Dancing lessons for every horse in the country?
kesmarn

2 months ago
That would be cool!
Harleigh

2 months ago
Kes – Don’t corporate execs have more in common with tyrants than Presidents?
adlib 2 months ago
Money Boo B00 and Myth, made my day. Good revising of that horrible campaign
foodchain

2 months ago
Agree Foodchain, Harleigh nailed it.
adlib 2 months ago
Absolutely, AdLib. They don’t have those pesky term limits, for starters.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Dictators they are indeed. All powerful and giving the orders
foodchain

2 months ago
I am also supporting a Palin-Bachmann 2016 campaign for jebus! glory! Come n git yer screech on y’hear!
Harleigh

2 months ago
The Dems could run Jimmy Carter against that team and win by a landslide, Harleigh. And deservedly so.
kesmarn

2 months ago
At AJA…..Iraq now because there we have the Kurds, the emerging Shia/Sunni government, the Iranians…Syria later because there is NO moderate power t hand that state over to….so let Assad and those radicals fight each other.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
I just got into trouble a week ago at dinner making fun of a yard sign that boasted palin/bachmann and the silent shill was still there! Wow, how could they still want them?
foodchain

2 months ago
JOHN MCCAIN ON MSNBC….CHANGE THE CHANNEL.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Oh hell kes any 2 of us here could run against them and win…. even with jebus talkin to them both! LOL
Harleigh

2 months ago
Murph, I have to wonder what would happen if ISIS and Assad ever came face to face…
kesmarn

2 months ago
MSNBC brings on McCain! It’s an All-Hack Party!
adlib 2 months ago
Let’s add Bill Kristol to the pundit list tonight
foodchain

2 months ago
Assad is facing Isis….Syria is their HQ….
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
I have to hear what McCain has to say about this.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Why not Vladamir Putin following McCain? Then the Ferguson Police force?
adlib 2 months ago
bomb, bomb bomb
foodchain

2 months ago
Kes….I can save you time on McCain….it is what he always says. MSNBC…so boring.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Murph, I guess what I’m saying is an actual personal encounter. I can’t believe that ISIS would approve of the Assad’s lifestyle as appropriately non-western.
kesmarn

2 months ago
McCain is every where and everyone knows he’s wrong but..
foodchain

2 months ago
Assad is Shia, hated by the Sunni and esp. the Salafi Sunni. He is also a Baathist. Hussein’s crowd.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
I hear that McCain has made more appearances on talk shows than any other politician of either party.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Kes- beats doing your job.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Yeah, Kes, he’s kind of a wonderment
foodchain

2 months ago
I think they would have Mrs. Assad in a burqa in short order. Have to wonder how that would go over.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Boehner released a prepared response to the speech, mainly it said, “Nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah-nyah. And we’re afraid to vote on ISIS. So there!”
adlib 2 months ago
Profiles in Courage again. Now it’s time to hit the Merlot.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Just started the merlot.
foodchain

2 months ago
Do Repubs have a computer program that just spits out “responses” to Presidential speeches? And you just have to fill in the blanks for the issue?
adlib 2 months ago
They sure as hell don’t need any pronouns
foodchain

2 months ago
FC – And they don’t need any logic or substance.
adlib 2 months ago
never have, never will
foodchain

2 months ago
but their audience doesn’t require it
foodchain

2 months ago
What the hell does Matthews want? Everything’s wrong escept him.
adlib 2 months ago
except
adlib 2 months ago
Sanders..got to love him….
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
AJA is no longer talking about the speech saying the meaning will unfold as the next voices in the international conversation speak….
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
well this has been great. Bedtime for me. night all
Harleigh

2 months ago
Sanders makes sense, describes it as complicated and needing the int’l community as well as warning about the mistakes of Bush/Cheney. Rachel made the good point, ISIS came from Bush’s invasion of Iraq, didn’t exist before.
adlib 2 months ago
Night Harleigh!
adlib 2 months ago
Harleigh, nice meeting you
foodchain

2 months ago
same here
Harleigh

Andrea Mitchell is such a jerk, just hurling insults at Obama repeatedly. Ask your hubby to wreck the economy again.
adlib 2 months ago
G’night, Harleigh!
kesmarn

2 months ago
I’m going to try. It’s good here
foodchain

2 months ago
MSNBC has a lot of closet Obama haters….I wonder why
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
lol Adlib, his briefcase made history; how he carried it portended news
foodchain

2 months ago
Murph – Because Obama’s polling is down and they want to appeal to the majority, no principles.
adlib 2 months ago
And they love the controversy
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Anger is the new currency
foodchain

2 months ago
I think you nailed it, foodchain.
kesmarn

2 months ago
Obama….the NOT-Bush
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Murph – I think they want to feel smarter than the President, who makes them feel intellectually insecure. Matthews definitely.
adlib 2 months ago
it’s the merlot
foodchain

2 months ago
Ad…talking heads culture, effete snob culture
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
I’m on delay and just am hearing Sanders. What a guy. Reality, what a concept
foodchain

2 months ago
Is Sanders (at least) supportive of the Prez?
kesmarn

2 months ago
Kes – Yes, Sanders supports the Pres but smartly warns about getting in deeper than we should.
adlib 2 months ago
Well I think I will call it a night……morning comes early.
murphthesurf3

2 months ago
Night Murph!
adlib 2 months ago
Good night Murph, good to hear you
foodchain

2 months ago
G’night, Murph. Catch you later.
kesmarn

2 months ago
I guess I’ll sign off for now as well. It was great being able to get a group perspective on this one!
kesmarn

2 months ago
so glad to see you Kes
foodchain

2 months ago
Hmm…wonder what Hillary will say about this…in many weeks when she finally talks about it.
adlib 2 months ago
Night Kes!
adlib 2 months ago

Exactly FC!

2 months ago
Same here, FC. I’m really looking for an alternative in the Dem primary.
adlib 2 months ago
Well FC, looks like it’s about that time to wrap our live chat for the night. Hope you’ll be back on Firday night for Vox Populi!
adlib 2 months ago
I’m looking for a Dem to stand up, tell the truth in non DC phrases and worry about the country rather than their back. Sanders is one
foodchain

2 months ago
FC – Agree 100% about Sanders.
adlib 2 months ago
good then. glad to be here
foodchain

2 months ago
take care
foodchain

2 months ago
Great to see you, FC! Have a great evening!
adlib 2 months ago
you too. it’s still early for you
foodchain
