Re: Rubio supporting Kasich?!?!

Kasich is done, he just hasn't got the memo. Why should he quit? So Trump can get to 1,237 quicker? Trump needs a mininmum of 60% in each state to get to that number. With Rubio out, if Trump gets just half of his support it puts Trump closer to 50%. And if the same happens if Kasich leaves you cou...

Re: Rubio supporting Kasich?!?!

It's either going to be Trump or Cruz... Lots to 1 says Trump. A reasonable person looking at just the evidence objectively has to conclude the Republicans face a very uphill fight. Where were you calling for "getting some candidates who can win this thing" when that was an actual option?!?! That s...

Trump is the reason why people that would stay home are going out and voting.

Re: Rubio supporting Kasich?!?!

The general election polls from the past month have Kasich leading Clinton in all polls with an average of almost 7 and a half points, outside any margin of error. Rubio leads in all and by an average of 4 points. While Cruz is in a dead heat with her at 0.8 and losing in one poll. Forget Trump, he ...

Re: Rubio supporting Kasich?!?!

Of course, this is not the first inclination that if the GOP leadership gets its act together a Kasich-Rubio ticket would be the worst fear of the Dems. http://onpolitics.usatoday.com/2015/11/09/is-a-kasichrubio-ticket-a-2016-gop-dream/ http://www.nationalreview.com/article/422529/five-reasons-why-k...

Rubio supporting Kasich?!?!

Marco Rubio sounds like he's going for the center square for the block on Trump.
Rubio is encouraging his supporters to vote for Kasich in Ohio.

Re: How Sanders' campaign will lose him the election

Hate to give you the late-breaking news bulletin, Jack, but, TV ain't the be-all-end-all anymore. OTA TV doesn't matter to under 30-somethings, especially news. Even cable is losing tons of ground in those demos. Gee Art, I don’t know whether to congratulate you for stating the obvious or being alm...

How Sanders' campaign will lose him the election

According to Tim Skubick the Sanders campaign is throwing away free air time in Michigan. In other words, their media relations are amateur. Apparently the Sanders campaign never informed the two Lansing TV stations, presumably WLNS and WILX, that there would be a press conference after Sanders' cam...

Re: Michigan Primary Polls and Predictions

What is Sanders doing wasting time in Traverse City??? Was it really worth the time to try and pursude the 50,000 Democratic voters from Grand Traverse, Benzie, Leelanau, Kalkaska and Charlevoix counties? Why dosen't he just go to Grand Rapids too? Sanders is wasting his time anywhere north of Sagin...

Re: Detroit/Toledo Big Three schedule for 12/10/1980

As for AT&T -- considering the regulations at the time, I do not think the FCC would have permitted Ma Bell to own a network, especially as many networks at the time used its coaxial cable network to transmit from city to city. What regulations would those be??? I was asking about the "regulations ...

Re: Detroit/Toledo Big Three schedule for 12/10/1980

There would be a long list of buyers for a network like NBC in 1980, who could have got it for a discount from RCA because of its lagging primetime. Potential buyers then could have included movie studios like Paramount (Gulf+Western), Universal (MCA) or Fox, conglomerates like GE, AT&T or ITT or a...

Poor little Marco... But hey, he performed well among menopausal women and soccer moms in the Republican stronghold of Minnesota (a state the Dems will win by a mile in the general election) and had a good night in the crony capitalism stronghold of Virginia. I will say Ted Cruz gave an outstanding...

...NBC came extremely close to following the exact same path Dumont followed just 24 years earlier. And you got this from where??? Because that would be the furthest thing from reality.

Re: Detroit/Toledo Big Three schedule for 12/10/1980

Until Hill Street Blues and Cheers came along a coule of years later NBC was kind of lost. Al Franken used to make light of this on SNL, (A Letter To The Lamo / Fred Silverman.) Oh geez, yeah, 1979 and '80 were kinda the depth of the valley for NBC then. They were Infamously bad in primetime at the...
