#3 Besoeker, Wow that article practically seethes with hate.
Time to de-extort NPR.

#4 Take away the boodle and they hate you. Mitt has said... "we can no longer afford to subsidize NPR, it must use advertising to support itself like other media outlets."

#5 I thought Romney would be much better than expected.
Just hope he doesn't get cocky. It does seem The Zero is doing a McCain this time and not really going for it.

#8 You have done a superlative job of diminishing what was once a great profession and undermining one of the vital underpinnings of democracy, a free press.
As in the 'oldest profession'? Once again I'll point out the confusing the means of technology (circa 1792), the printing press, with the intent, free flow of information. It's the same confusion advocates try and often get away with in dealing with immigration in that there is legal and illegal immigration. They engage in dishonest rhetoric conflating the two concepts together in desperation to advance their agenda.

#9 As Obama did dressage, Obama played the henpecked husband.
Gee, much easier, good job NBC. Doop duh duh.

#10 *along with the article, when searching for that Dowd quote, I typed in "Obama dressage" and 19 of 20 picks had to do with Mrs. Romney.

#11 Dressage has been considered the ultimate form of horsemanship for more than 2500 years. The horse Olympics has been one of the premier equestrian events in the world for more than a century. I wonder if NPR knows how many millions of people they have just insulted around the world. Attacking Ann Romney in the United States is not a good idea. Attacking her on the world stage is just stupidity. This will not only be bad for NPR but also a blight on Obama. Like the Deacon said, "What the hell is wrong with you people".

#12 We know what's wrong with them....they're liberals - A terminal disease that's nearly un-curable and results in millions of deaths around the world.

Apparently the snobbery horse ballet was important enough for no other than General George S. Patton to raid Czechoslovakia to save the historic breed.
They had a show out here in good ole John Wayne land...for a packed house.
Yeah, insulted every member of the horse clans. Movie Warhorse - horse ballet. Heroic charge during battle of Helms Deep - horse ballet.
NPR - ballet of whores.

#14 I like dressage (I hate soccer), sue me.

#15 They have also insulted my wife. She was an equestrian when I met her and after several years I actually learned which end of the horse went first.
She was certified to teach up to elementary dressage (equivalent of the dressage component of 3 day eventing, one more mistake in the article) by the State of Massachusetts. And yes that was just one more $ grab by the Dems. like you need a license to teach riding. But still it is expensive to own a horse but it can be done by most anyone with a little land and "all" it takes is hours of back breaking labor and worry.
These ba$tards should be tarred afeathered and dropped off in the Marianas Trench.

#16 More and more people are on to these 5th columnists of the 4th estate lame stream media. If the MSM propagandists go broke because no one pays attention anymore and they all lose their jobs, it is deserved for the pack of lies they are trying to peddle. There is little difference between Hitler's & Goebbel's Nazi press or Pravda of the Communist USSR.

#17 "Apparently the snobbery horse ballet was important enough for no other than General George S. Patton to raid Czechoslovakia to save the historic breed."
For history buffs it is a great story to google. Patton knew of their heritage, and also knew the Russians would eat them. His decisions saved the breed.

#18 Oh, nearly forgot to ask- Is that the breed that Andrea Mitchell's horse face came from?
Anybody have Greenspan on speed dial?
