    This program is tailor made for liberal fuddy duddys. It’s the same 1960’s style liberal pablum every week. For example, this morning the president’s former press secretary was on spouting the same ignorant liberal unchallenged lies which every other liberal with a mouth has been spounting all of last week. It’s wrong on the facts and does nothing to inform the viewers about their choice in the election this fall.

    Obama has been a failure on the economy. His heralded hope and change inspires no one. If he wanted to be a uniter, all he had to do was not be the business basher-in-chief. Predicably, Obama has failed to resist the liberal urge to bash business large and small, private capital and big oil.

    Obama cannot run on his record so the only hope he has is to distract, misinform, obfuscate and continue to spread big lies about the opposition so the voters won’t realize the truth about him. He’s go nothing, he’s done nothing helpful and he has no idea about how to return the economy to prosperity. And, his VP is the biggest dope since Foghon Leghorn not to mention plagarist, perhaps the lowest of low crimes.

    Dump Biden and send Obama and his confederates back to Chicago. Let the grown-ups handle the situation.
