MSM sharks – the “press avail” (or should that be “shark tank”) with Channel 9 WMUR’s Amy Coveno

Tonite was a great “teachable moment” in how the MSM can make anyone appear in a bad light – all it takes is an uppity attitude, a whiny voice, a TV camera, and a pre-determined narrative. I made it downstairs it to the press availability (already in progress) after the event – it was CLEAR …

Live blogging – Herman Cain’s event in Manchester

Well, I got here what I thought was very early as I had been told that the “Volunteers” part of the evening was to be around 7:30pm.

While the campaign office was pretty empty when I first arrived, it is since (as at 7:30pm or so), it has pretty much filled up with almost as many volunteer as media (a camera is trained on me as I type as they are getting B-roll).

The volunteers, for the most part, are rather angry – not at Herman but what seems to be the media and the “dirty tricks” that seem to go along with every major campaign. One lady came down from Augusta, ME to be here to show support – her mood was as red as her jacket. Another, a teacher, was also here in support not happy with the current events.

Repost: You Can’t Be A “Republican” And Vote Against Right To Work

Supporting forced unionization is the same as supporting mandatory campaign contributions to the Unions and the Democrat party. There is no conceivable way to separate the two. Unions are funded by dues. Democrats receive millions of dollars from unions to promote their agenda. And in some cases to promote it violently.

A note on the Herman Cain news

Well, we all know what the latest Prez Primary news is – another allegation concerning Herman Cain.  Yes, GraniteGrok endorsed Mr. Cain (before all these allegations started).  Knowing that, someone asked me, last nite, what I thought about them; my response (edited to add additional thoughts): Boy, SOMEbody wanted him out of the race BADLY.  …
