    Leaving aside the televised, overly scripted, predictable and marginally useful "debates" now taking place between the Republican candidates for president, there are much more important discussions going on between conservatives and independents who are unified in their belief that for the good of the nation, Barack Obama must be defeated.

    Those discussions — taking place across kitchen tables, in lunchrooms, or in neighborhood bars after a week of hard work — are trying to determine which path to follow in the approaching political fork in the road.

    One of those paths will most likely lead to the defeat of Mr. Obama. The other could very well ensure his re-election.

    It is critical for Republicans, conservatives, and independents to remember that from the 2008 GOP field, John McCain had the stamp of approval from the mainstream media.

    In fact, the liberal media worked overtime to resurrect his then all but comatose campaign. Why?

    That same liberal media told us that independents and a good number of Democrats just loved McCain.

    Maybe some did, but exponentially more conservatives and Americans who cherish our vanishing traditional values could not stand him. So much so, they simply declined to vote.

    85% percent of all Reporters, Editors, Producers, other media types. Self Identify as Democrats. It does not matter who owns the cooperation that owns the Media Out let. It's the people reporting, editing, writing, and deciding what to cover, in the news. That gives it it's slant.

    Thomas Jefferson said once that the funny thing about internet quotes is you never know if they are true or not.

    I think what happened Saturday in Florida sent a clear message to the Media and the party elites.
