    “@Joan … your racist remarks regarding our First Lady say so much more about you than her. Let me be blunt: You’re a pathetic excuse for a human being and a waste of good oxygen.”


    LMAO! When they come up with a response to prove to the world they’re NOT racist, they sing the SAME old song: “Just because I talk bad about the Obamas’ don’t mean I’m racist!” or “My best friends are BLACK” or how about this jewel: “I’ve had blacks in my HOME before.”

    It’s pure comedy with these sorry excuses for human flesh. :)

    Al,Chris and Ed -the biggest fools on television-bar none.

  • sam900

    What surprises me is HLN Express which beats CNN Early Start every morning. Ted Turner, please put CNN early Start out of miserable. Drop the program. It sucks

    “It will probably be closer than thought because the unions saved all their outlandish tricks for today!”

    You mean outlandish tricks like busing people who will most likely vote for Barrett to the polls(which it most likely would be hard for them otherwise), how dare they.

    @ratboy, yes looks like “Billy” is doing alot to help Gov. Romney

    Mmmmmmmmmm NO

  • Matthew

    Reminder for 6/5/2012: Joan has, on more than one occasion, used the racist term “sambo,” and by treating her with anything other than scorn you are giving her implicit permission to be a terrible human being. Her continued acceptance in this community speaks volumes about the posters here.

    you realize Cavuto was joking around but you wouldn’t since you don’t watch him regularly…

  • tim


    funny that Walkers policies kept teachers on their job where if the Unions had things their way, there would of been massive layoffs because the state couldn’t balance their books….typical lying liberal Clinton Democrat..

    Mmmmmmmmmm NO

    Come on Jeff!! YOu have to start listening with BOTH ears!! In Friday Clinton buried the Obama message by saying that Romney was a “sterling buisnessman” and that they should not hammer on his Bain past Today he told CNBC that the Bush tax cuts should be extended because we are ALREADY in recession and that does not say much for Obama and his recovery plan, last week when the obama was hammering on Trump Billy came out saying how much he LIKED trump and loved playing golf with him and painted him in a credible and positive light.

    So please you or any of your political southpaws explain it to us

  • Jeff

    @tim, then tell me what really occurred during the interview, because I don’t watch him regularly, does not make it not happen. Thanks!

  • Jeff

    @Ratboy, uh huh…

    “I said, you know, Governor Romney had a good career in business and he was a governor, so he crosses the qualification threshold for him being president,” Clinton said. “But he shouldn’t be elected, because he is wrong on the economy and all these other issues. “So today, because I didn’t attack him personally and bash him, I wake up to read all these stories taking it out of context as if I had virtually endorsed him, which means the tea party has already won their first great victory: ‘We are supposed to hate each to disagree.’ That is wrong.”

  • PaulG


    Pres. Clinton is one of the best politicans of our generations,,but I did see him in an interview with Maria Bartiromo today say he felt the Bush tax cuts should be extended for everyone,,which really undermines a key strategy of Pres Obama and the congressinol democrats…

  • Coffee Steve

    White House downplaying…

    I said last night 5 Points :-)

  • PaulG


    Her continued acceptance in this community speaks volumes about the posters here.

    I know at least two posters that won’t respond to her posts,,maybe there are more…

  • Matthew

    “I know at least two posters that won’t respond to her posts,,maybe there are more…”

    I know people like you and d.d. do the right thing and won’t bother with racists. Really, it’s just three or four posters that are buddy-buddy with her and encourage her to post, but it’s still disappointing.

    @Ratboy, uh huh…

    You asre skirting the issue now come on! I pointed to a bunch of things that Clinton has said to undermine Obama in the last couple of weeks but you are just coming back with a Clinton Qoute that it was taken out of context. Clinton is waaaaaaaay to smart to say things that are “gaffes” when he talks he is sending a message and he continues to send messages that undermine the campaign message!

    So again, how about you guys on the left explain how the most popular Democrat in the nation justifies his comments that are in direct opposition of the Obama campaign message.

  • PaulG

    @Coffee Steve

    I said last night 5 Points

    If we were on wall street this would be like insider tradering,,your probably on the phone right now,,I might have to throw the yellow flag..
