I mentioned this on another thread, but you guys might want to give PBS Newshour a try.

Although they will be broadcasting nothing but RNC this week, and DNC next week, their weekday program seems pretty even-handed.

Their broadcast is on weekdays, 4-5pm PDT.

I just realized that I have gone off topic with my opinions. I am sorry Doug for doing that to you.

I do not listen to Rush. I have a few times, but his tone gives me a headache.

I use to watch MSNBC, but got sick of the Bush bashing. It did nothing but make people angry.

I am still saddend by the fact that there is no real news stations. I can listen to speeches and understand. I don't need someone to tell me what I think.

I was talking to a Fox news person this morning on FB. I told him that tonight I hoped he closed his mouth long enough for us to hear the speeches. I wasn't trying to be rude, and I told him so, but I feel like these conventions are very important, so that people pick the right man.
If you are referring to the Civil Rights activist Vernon Jordan he is 77 years old . When I was active in the Civil Rights movement I met him once . In his opinion the greatest president was Bill Clinton .

Could Rommney be the answer, or is President Obama going to finally walk down the street to make deals, in order for this country to get back on it's feet.
Luanne, I agree with you. From my viewpoint, I like some of the things Obama has done or tried to do. Could he have tried harder to compromise? Maybe, but please remember that the stated agenda of the Republicans for the last 4 years is to get Obama out of the Whitehouse.

My fear is that who will end up leading us is the Corporations. This is why I vote Dem. When the Conservative lead Supreme Court declared that a Corporation was a person - as in the Wizard of OZ, I saw the man behind the curtain.
