    Grimes and McConnell will have their first debate this evening. I’m curious to see how she handles it, so I might just tune in. ๐Ÿ™‚ CSPAN is also airing it live.

      O, Dudette, I have to pass this comment on to you as it rightfully belongs to you. I passed on that link you shared in the village recently.

      “A classical clarinetist of colour!! :O You don’t see that too often!! Way cool! Thanks for sharing, Mom!!”

    I am completely confused as to why the President always seems to be the only person in the US who can shut down media b.s. on any issue. Every other politician seems to ramp up the b.s. and encourage the continuous lies the media spreads.

    States might as well remove their governors – every time they have an issue – be it minor or major – they scream for the President to “fix it”.

      I abandoned NBC nightly news over a year ago When Brian Williams had a pundit on to talk about PBO’s emotions. That did it for me. His job is to present the news and not analyze. I have switched to David Muir since he has been on.

      This may be so, but why is Alison focused on that in the moments before the debate? In the more recent weeks I actually see her responses as very simplistic/childish – IMO she should be making more substantive points instead of reacting to Mitch’s do’s and don’ts.

      • 75 vcprezofan2
        October 13, 2014 at 8:51 pm

        I don’t see her as ‘taking charge’ at all at this point in the contest. In fact, from the little I’ve been seeing Grimes seems to be ‘nit-picking’ instead of stepping forward with a confident grasp of where she wants to take Kentucky. Anyway, I still want Mitch to lose.

        • 76 99ts
          October 13, 2014 at 9:20 pm

          She is not impressive – and yet she still has a chance – be fun if Mitch lost – then GOP will have lost house and senate leaders

          • 77 vcprezofan2
            October 13, 2014 at 9:37 pm

            Then my hope is that Grimes makes the most of her chance as Mitch would be gloat king if he were to be returned to office.

    The House of Commons backed the move “as a contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution” – although less than half of MPs took part in the vote.

    The result, 274 to 12, is symbolic but could have international implications.

    Government ministers abstained on the vote, on a motion put forward by Labour MP Grahame Morris and amended by former Foreign Secretary Jack Straw.

    Middle East Minister Tobias Ellwood said Britain reserved the right to recognise Palestine when it is “appropriate for the peace process”.

    In 2012 the UN General Assembly voted to upgrade the Palestinians’ status to that of “non-member observer state”.

    The assembly voted 138 to nine in favour, with 41 nations – including the UK – abstaining.

      I can’t watch these things so I’ll wait for the summary. Wanting Grimes to win but not having been impressed with what I’ve seen of her to date, I fear I’d put the worst interpretation on whatever she said that was not 100% behind PBO. I’m going to pretend for the next month that I believe she knows her electorate best.

      she came across as smart and the adult in the room. moderator was a total republican tool letting mitch spew the talking points like a robot, but grimes kept her cool and got her points in. not an easy position for her to be in, yet she might’ve won over some mushy middle people.

          i just saw the second half and that’s what my spouse and i thought. i didn’t see the wisconsin debate the other night, but sounds like it was similar, where the republican scott walker bumbled through the standard-issue talking points with no pushback from the mods, and mary burke was smart and strong. we’ve got some really intelligent female candidates around the country that i’m sure if we had any actual journalism happening anymore at major papers and tv stations, they’d all be well in front. “the news” of today is killing this country.

    GE TOD.
    So the KY debate is done.
    I would take Grimes over McDonnell. It is sad that Pigmentation is the issue in KY and has been since 2008.
    I don’t want to generalize…..but so few many Southerners don’t mind speaking their dislike of a person of color……with a drag on slow accent while denying their conscious and subconscious bigotry in the same sentence.

    Pardon me, I meant no disrespect.

    I think overall Grimes did a good job and McConnell sounded like an old recording from the 19th century. If I were a Kentuckian, I would vote for Grimes with no hesitation as a Dem.

    Having said that, I still take great objection to Grimes’ starting this divisiveness about “Clinton Democrat vs Obama Democrat” and therefore being forced to defend it at every instance, when the real issues of focus should be McConnell’s bad and harmful policies for Kentuckians and 30 years of utter uselessness in the Senate. If Grimes does win the Senate, I hope she can find the courage to work to overcome some of that racism in the state. Because it will come back to hunt her – when you tolerate and accommodate these malignancies in the short run, you have to deal with them in the long run – otherwise they will destroy you.

      So much demonstrated success on the part of POTUS in every realm in the last 6 years but racism has such a stranglehold on their thinking and their attitudes, they cannot claim or tout any of this obvious success. It’s INSANE.

        The Democrats use PBO to raise money and are to weak to get out there and tout the economic growth, whether folks feel it or not. A lot of folks feel it. This was a good segment, but it just made me more angry at these weak Democrats who won’t stand up for their accomplishments.

        • October 13, 2014 at 9:49 pm

      Hearing that Panetta is now working for an organization run by Hillary’s campaign manager and that their strategy is to separate from Obama makes me so mad. It will make it so much harder if she is the Dem candidate to vote for her. I read the choice may be GOP or GOP Lite. I think Corporate Owned fits both.
