Edward from Washington Heights AKA pretentious Hudson Heights

Leo from Queens,

Now you're babbling about "supernatural powers"?

Take a nap.

Martin and Ed: You guys are really desperate. Your personal hate of the president is aggravating your mental, emotional distress of knowing that Romney will come crashing down on Tuesday with the sheer wait of his lies and incompetence.

What next? the weak Obama used his supernatural powers to veer Sandy to the left in order to cause a distraction before the election?

The president clearly said the day after the attacks in Benghazi that these were an act of terror. Just drop it. Do something useful like clearing sewage from the streets of Hoboken.

Here is the photo of the White House Situation Room during the raid on the Osama bin Laden safehouse in our "good friend" Pakistan.

Notice that Obama, all the way on the left seems so physically small compared to the others. Not like a Commander in Chief. More like a Community Organizer.

little leo-

LOL ...The mainstream media (and Listless Lehrer) won't cover this scandal, so little poops like you find "gotcha" in that most of the stories must have conservative media outlet stamps on them. They are the only ones covering it.

Gee, sorry Dr. Blimber.

The usual suspects will blame Sandy on Bush.

Martin: Stop promoting the crazy, hateful garbage from Newsmax. This is the same outlet that was blaming blacks for the financial crisis because somehow Carter in the 70's forced intelligent, college educated, street wise powerful bankers to provide mortgages to black people. and as a result, THIRTY YEARS LATER, black people walked away with TRILLIONS of dollars in mortgage loans and left bankers holding the bag. This is they type of hateful garbage Newsmax propagates.

If you want to be a hero why don't you go Libya and try to influence this new democracy and see if you can do it by spewing hate and racism from a militarized fortress in Tripoli!

to Kathy Greenberg: The October surprise was Sandy!. Though tragic, it is forcing us to finally talk about real serious issues affecting our country and the World in general that are being ignored. This October surprise has been able to show who is the leader and who is an opportunist. President Obama has shown professionalism (I know it's his job) while Romney has ignored questions as to what he would do with FEMA while previously he had said he would privatize it and that moochers who need help after a tragedy should not expect anything from the Federal government.
Mr. Romney chose to use this tragedy to stage a photo op where he pretended to collect donations from adoring fans so he could send to the East coast. What has come out is that his aides went to Walmart and bought about $5,000 worth of food and forced the people attending his rally to pick up some goods while in line to shake his hand so they could hand it back to him while cameramen took pictures. I'm sure you are waiting for a jar of peanut butter!.
Regarding the election, I realize that this is really difficult for many, but government should setup voting places where available and it will give people an opportunity to get out and do something constructive and engage with their fellow citizens. I am going crazy having to work home this whole week. And YES, I am very fortunate that I really was not seriously affected

Barry-

The consulate had cameras all around it...you have the footage....SHOW US THE VIDEOS (!) of the "angry mob of protesters" that you lied about on Letterman, Jon Stewart and everywhere else more than a week later!!!
They weren't there and everyone in Washington knows it.

The COWARD IN THE WHITE HOUSE did not want to admit that there was a terrorist attack on 9/11.
Because Obama had killed Osama, supposedly he had "defeated" al-Queda and Axelrod told him that they needed that narrative.

IMPEACH THIS GUY.

Also wondering about the logistics of the election next week. With so many communities in crisis, have contingencies been considered for how to make the election happen?

KATHIE GREENBERG from Wantagh, NY

I can't believe there's been no talk about postponing the presidential election! The lives of MILLIONS of people on the east coast have been literally up-ended by the storm... many of us have no connection to the "outside world"... and, even if we did, could not focus on it because we're too busy trying to survive without power, food, gasoline, etc. (I wouldn't even know if there was an "October surprise if one were to emerge.) I understand that from a practical point of view, our votes won't change a thing, but talk about feeling insignificant and marginalized!!!

Hey, Brian- B-E-N-G-H-A-Z-I - stop participating in the cover-up.

SLAIN SEAL’S FATHER BLASTS OBAMA: “Better to Die a Hero Than Live a Coward”

Charles Woods, the father of Tyrone Woods, a former Navy SEAL killed in the Libya terror attack last month, sent a direct message to President Barack Obama about courage and cowardice. Woods said: “Remember this Mr. President, my son and the others died heroes. And it’s better to die the death of a hero than it is to live the life of a coward.
Woods said on Friday that U.S. officials who denied a request for help while the diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya was under attack "are murderers of my son.”
Woods’ son was part of a small team at a CIA annex near the consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. Stevens, Woods and two other Americans died in the attack.

Ha - so you posted before the show, to show, the show's liberal bias? The clairvoyance of "Martin" - about as believable as his objectivity.

I can see "Martin" now - ripping his "Christie 2016" posters off his wall - the traitor.

No doubt yet another segment for the Obama 2012 campaign effort .... thinly disguised as Lehrer's excuse for a "news" show. (And, yes, kiddies, I can post this before it actually begins .... why would it be different than every other show these past few months?)

Brian has gotten increasingly desperate as the election nears and Barry's poll numbers show cracks.

Brian was never partisan to THIS LEVEL before 2008. (It was "listenable".) Just doing his required liberal media duty to sustain the Untouchable, I guess.
