#1151319 Romney on the 47%

Posted by squishyx on 18 September 2012 - 10:00 AM

Well, considering the media was caught themelves on audio plotting against Romney, any misttep and the media will relentlessly attack him, like they do all Republicans.

I wish conservatives would stop playing the media victim card. The most watched cables news network is foxnews, the radio airwaves are dominated by conservative talk shows, and the internet is the ever equalizer for reporting stories. The "relentless media" works for both sides, they are about ratings (which is fine).

Meanwhile, all you see and hear is crickets and tumbleweeds from the media over the fact that Obama and his State Dep't knew for a minimum of two days that there was a plot against our embassies, yet we chose not to notify our staffs there.......but don't worry, Prez Advisor Valerie Jarrett had a full protective detail while vacationing in Martha's Vineyard......at least we're secure knowing she's safe.

There isn't much evidence to back up what you are saying, just idle speculation for now. Just like their is speculation that Bush knew about the 9/11 attacks before they happened. It's a pretty big jump to suggest the US would knowingly allow their embassies to be overran (or their towers to be attacked). It just doesn't jive with the follow up; sending in special forces to protect various facilities immediately after. We are willing to use FAST teams after the attacks but not before? a little common sense goes a long way here. When something more then "a senior diplomatic source" comes out then is deserves more attention, or its own thread...

As for Romney, he's got a real problem. Of that 47%, half are seniors who probably aren't going to like the fact he basically called them moochers. He needs a lot of that 47% probably a third by my estimate because he was never going to win the other 53% outright.

#1140892 on November 11, when Minnesota comes to town, what do we do to Zach?

Posted by squishyx on 05 July 2012 - 12:14 PM

Zach didn't really accomplish much during his tenure here, and that's a shame. I won't boo him, but i certainly won't cheer. Really he doesn't even deserve a response, now he's just another guy in the league that's in our way, so all I want from that game is 2 points.

#1135030 Isles Offered Entire Draft

Posted by squishyx on 25 June 2012 - 01:48 PM

So the Devils are constantly rumored for ownership issues when the clowns in LI and Edmonton are allowed to run the only two dynasties of NHL through dirt. Boggles the mind that NHL doesn't take ownership.

The NHL shouldn't be owning any franchise.

"Unless of course he was going to bring it to the dressing room so Jersey players could take turns hurling it at Steve Bernier."
This made me laugh

#1128717 When is the worm gonna turn?

Posted by squishyx on 05 June 2012 - 01:39 PM

We only scored 3 goals in the first 3 games against the Rangers, hopefully our offense has just hit a rut and will explode over the next 4 games.

#1126774 Thomas will take a sabbatical

Posted by squishyx on 01 June 2012 - 08:22 AM

he didnt go to prove a point that he feels government is screwing people over, though hes a republican, he thinks its both sides. most people who pick a side mindlessly vote for that side thinking it will help them out. good for him to see it how it is, both sides screw us and take away sh!t day by day. the only stupid part of the whole thing is he assumes the president, demorcratic or republican , has any real control over anything. and in a way, it is a political event, sure its just hte president meeting with the champions, but every president does it and its just a press op to make them look good, distract people from real news etc.

ghdi basically summed up my view on it. just because the president is involved doesn't make something political, they have been greeting champions for how many decades now? How often do you get to meet the president of the United States? but whatever that's a personal choice and I think he was just foolish to pass it up but to each his own.

What was selfish and stupid on his part was releasing a statement about it, and then defending it a number of times there after. It really distracted from the achievement and honor that his team had accomplished and was bestowed. Even if you don't want to go, be quiet about it, lie and say you were sick, or had a previous personal family issue to attend too or something if for nothing else not to take away from your teammates moment.

#1122549 Matteau defends his goalie

Posted by squishyx on 22 May 2012 - 09:37 AM

I still haven't seen it. Went to that silly viewing party at MSG(had to be in city til about 7:30 last night, so figured I'd check it out rather than miss the first period). After the Parise goal, I took off. The Rupp incident happened while I was walking to my car.

So I guess this...

Rupp gave Marty a shot which was no worse than what Kovalchuck did to Callahan.

was you just talking out of your ass then?

Here: link

Now you have seen it. Let me know how ok you are with Clarkson taking that kind of swing at your goalie.

#1117161 Giroux

Posted by squishyx on 07 May 2012 - 02:23 PM


I like how Shanny explains that they took the full context of the play into consideration, basically that Giroux was acting like a little baby for not getting a call he wanted, and took his frustration out of Zubies head.

#1085381 Bruins White House Visit

Posted by squishyx on 24 January 2012 - 12:28 PM

He should have just gone and avoided all of this, but the media is really blowing it out of proportion. Lots of players have missed these things and there's never any mention of it.

I can't remember a previous instance where the player went out of his way to make a political statement about it though. He could have privately told his coach/gm why he wasn't going and then publicly said he needed rest, recovering from a minor injury, wanted to spend the time off with his family or just stayed quiet. By making a political point about it he deserves all the attention that goes along with it, good or bad.

#1057418 Devs to honor Doc

Posted by squishyx on 17 October 2011 - 03:10 PM

Well deserved. He was as much a member of the family as any player to have ever played for us.

Watching the games on TV now is just sad. Cangi is a good enough play by play guy, but the games just feel a little dull and boring without Doc's remarks or the great chemistry he had with Chico. I'm sure as time goes on, Cangialosi will get better and the interactions with Chico will improve, but in the meantime it really hurts not having Doc around anymore.

I don't like Steve very much, but I will cut him some slack since no one can fill his shoes. Also watching out of town games really helps give me perspective, their are A LOT of bad announcers out there. But I do kind of wish there was an option to watch a game with the commentators muted but the game sounds still live.

And yea, nothing but <3 for Doc, gonna get tickets asap.
