Meeting China, Looking in the Human Rights Mirror

The McLaughlin Group discussed the summit between Barack Obama and Xi Jinping, the NSA's obtaining of phone records and PRISM, the employment numbers, and the IRS tax scandal.

Hahahaha, so much for that.

Pat even does Asian ethnic studies.

Wait, what country are we talking about here?

Damn is that ever a quote.

I am just speechless.

1.  The rule of law.  2.  Special secret courts.  Pick one, Eleanor.

Did this program find the Boston Bombers?  No.  This whole terrorism excuse is utter bullshit.  One of the victims said he saw the bomber and even if there was not a single camera, they would have had a visual reference of one of the suspects.

Susan Ferrechio predicted that, "The Senate will pass a limited expansion of background checks on gun purchases within the week."  It did not happen.

She falls three spots from 55.56 percent correct to 50 percent correct.  As a result John McLaughlin, Eleanor Clift, and Mort Zuckerman all move up a spot even though they maintain the same percentage in correct prediction from the previous week.

Pat should just do his own show called “Pat’s World Concerns” and just rant for half an hour on the issues of the day. I would even pay to see that.

Within two decades? Damn, that is quite the macro prediction for a man his age to make.

How do you figure out the percents?
