    tired of the right thing to do, how bout the smart thing for once. grape kool aid!

  • Ratboy

    I say MSNBC should fire Sharpie, Matthews, Schultz, and Maddow and hire Steve Perry!! Then there would be only ONE delusional wacko to watch!

  • Suikostinger

    I say Fox News should fire oreilly, Hannity, Kilmeade, and Steve Doocy and hire Ratboy!! Then there would be only ONE delusional wacko to watch!

  • Tennable

    @ Steve Perry,

    Yes, Hispanics love Obama, The Hispanic/Latino always lean democratic…but how many can vote?

    It would be like claiming bragging rights that white mountain men will put a Republican in office.


  • Jeff

     | Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King made the announcement on Mike Huckabee’s radio show today. The Daily Caller
     has the story:
    “I will tell you that — I’m not without experience on this — I’m prepared to bring a suit and seek a court order to stop implementation of this policy,” King said.
    Huckabee followed up, asking King: “You plan to sue this administration for implementing something that you believe should have required legislative process and approval?”
    “That is correct,” King replied.
    Looks like President Obama may have forced Romney to pick Rubio for Veep,

    If it is up to the D’s they ALL will be able to vote since they do not need ID if the D’s keep suing to stop states from requiring ID to vote

    Fox endorses their candidates in sly ways. Simular to how they got their news from tapping into cell phones.

    Fox Relentlessly Hypes Obama’s “Doing Fine” Comment, But Waits Three Days To Play Video Of Romney’s Attack On Public Workers

    Few Segments Even Discussed Romney’s Attack On Firefighter, Police, And Teacher Hiring. 96 percent of segments included discussion of Obama’s “doing fine” comment. A further 52 percent focused on Obama’s later clarification. 56 percent of segments also included discussion of Romney’s criticism of Obama as “detached” and “out of touch.” But only 26 percent of segments included discussion of Romney’s suggestion that we don’t need “more firemen, more policemen, more teachers.”

    Fox Airs 54 Segments Related To Obama’s Comments, But Only Seven Percent Ran Video Of Romney’s Attack On Firefighter, Police, And Teacher Hiring. Between June 8 and June 12, Fox News aired 54 segments related to Obama’s June 8 press briefing. 50 percent, or 27, of these segments aired Obama’s “doing fine” comment, and 31 percent, or 17, aired Romney’s subsequent criticism that Obama is “detached” and “out of touch” with the American people. A mere 15 percent, or eight, aired Obama’s later clarification. Only seven percent, or four, aired Romney suggesting that we shouldn’t hire “more firemen, more policemen, more teachers.”
    Fox Took Three Days To Air Video Of Romney’s Attack On Firefighter, Police, And Teacher Hiring. Between June 8 and June 10, 2012, Fox News only aired Obama’s “doing fine” comment, Obama’s later clarification, and Romney’s subsequent criticism of Obama as “detached” and “out of touch.” Not until the following Monday, June 11, did Fox News finally air the complete Romney clip that included his attack on hiring “more firemen, more policemen, more teachers.”Fox Focuses On Obama’s “Doing Fine” Comment Out Of Context
    Fox Dismisses The Severity Of Government Worker Layoffs. On Monday, June 11, Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier and The Five both aired segments touting the 4.2 percent government worker unemployment statistic to suggest that the public sector is thriving. However, according to Federal Reserve Economic Data (FRED) compiled by Business Insider, public sector jobs continue to decline as private sector jobs rise.
    Further, The Wall Street Journal reported that the overall unemployment rate in April would have been lower — at 7.1 percent — had the number of government workers not fallen since December of 2008. Economist Mark Zandi proclaimed that “the job losses at state and local governments is the most serious weight on the job market. And a February report from the non-partisan Center on Budget and Policy Priorities stated that government job losses hurt those who don’t
    Fox Edits Out Romney’s Attack On Firefighter, Police, And Teacher Hiring. The June 11 edition of Fox & Friends removed remarks from David Axelrod, communications director for the Obama campaign, so that Romney’s suggestion that we don’t need “more firemen, more police, more teachers” would not appear in the clip.

  • Jeff

    My opinion of DB,


  • Ratboy

    Attack On Public Workers???????????????????????????????????

    There was no ATTACK on public workers. If there was any ATTACK it was an attack on Obama’s spending

    Jeff, get out of the same room Steve Perry is in because maybe there is something in the air that is making you both delusional

  • Jeff

    Of course you don’t think it’s an attack on public workers because fox news hardly ever reports it. . .lmao!

    Do you really want to be in a room with these neo con kooks instead?

  • Ratboy

    So Jeff, first I heard the reports ON FOX and in many articles I read BUT……………….If I say that I think there are enough Administrative Assistants in the office and we should hire no more because we cant afford it, Am I now ATTACKING ALL Admin Asst????????? OOOOOOOR am I questioning (or ATTACKING) the clown that wants to hire more???????

    Jeff You are smarter than this so dont dissapoint me by letting your ideoligy get in the way!

  • MathMan

    Here in Washington state all the illegals of age can vote. They get drivers licenses, welfare, health care, and of course a voter registration card. The town I started school in is now taught in spanish and the text books are printed in Mexico. Obama will win here in a landslide no mater what the legal vote may be.

  • Steve Perry

    @Tennable…”Yes, Hispanics love Obama, The Hispanic/Latino always lean democratic…but how many can vote?”

    -I’m not too sure if you know this but the vast majority of Hispanics are actually American citizens.

    -Also, in 2004 George Bush carried 56% of the Hispanic vote in Florida and went on to win the state. However, in 2008 Obama carried 57% of the Hispanic vote in Florida and went on to win the state. Needless to say, that was a huge shift.

    How does it go?? Only in America!!! :lol:

  • Steve Perry

    Arizona is now in play.

  • Ughhh

    before you guys post your comment about how Obama is destroying the country can you first do me a favor and do some research instead of posting random sh*t. You do know not everything that fox news or msnbc say it is true right? The media is bias in general and for you Obama haters may i remind you that it takes both the house of representative and the senate to agree before Obama can sign anything to law right? So for you people saying Obama isn’t doing anything just remember that has to go through congress first. There is a lot of blame to go around but lets not be idiots and just blame one guy for all our problems.

  • Ratboy

    @ Ughhh
    It is all about leadership! Obama is NOT a leader. If a baseball,football, hockey, or what ever team is losing they look to the coach and hold the coach accountable and maybe fire the coach not the team. When a company loses money they look to the CEO and replace the leader for better leadership. You say Obama cans sign it into law without congress but he just abused the system again today with his “executive order” to circumvent the process. Yes there are a lot of losers in congress but the ultimate respnsability and accountability falls on ONE guy, the President.

    Night all!

    Obama Limits Deportations, Giving Young a Work Option

    Most of us who study this law-breaker knew it was a matter of time before Obama would push for the Hispanic vote by either granting full amnesty or violate US immigration laws by stopping deportations all together. This has been the goal of Obama’s backdoor amnesty program that has been carried out through non-enforcement of our nation’s immigration laws. All in time for the election.

    I hope Hispanics see through this fraud we call president. Obama could have passed any immigration bill he wanted during his first two years in office. His party had a filibuster-proof Congress, yet they couldn’t pass the DREAM Act. Now a few months before election day, The President of the United States announce he once again will violate another US law for political purposes. Add this to his refusal to defend the Defense of Marriage Act, his violation of the 1973 War Powers Act and now his unconstitutional changing of US immigration law.

    Administration officials said the president used existing legal authority to make the broad policy change, which could temporarily benefit more than 800,000 young people. He did not consult with Congress, where Republicans have generally opposed measures to benefit illegal immigrants.

    “Yes there are a lot of losers in congress but the ultimate respnsability and accountability falls on ONE guy, the President.”

    No, you numbskull, that isn’t how it works, and the Constitution is designed specifically so that won’t be the way it works. The president is not the leader of the Congress, he’s not the CEO, he’s not the f*cking coach. The Congress is the driver of domestic policy precisely because it’s a large, representative body, so as to avoid the problems that come with having a single individual shaping the course of policy; The only real domestic power the president wields is the power of the veto, and the authority that the Congress has granted the executive to wield (although, under the guise of national security, this line is becoming increasingly blurred). A president is only able to shape domestic policy as much as the Congress will allow him to shape it.

    What we have is a situation where the opposition party has a vested political interest in inaction, due to the ignorance of voters such as yourself. Phrases like “Obama’s spending” and “Bush’s spending” are far, far, far, far more frequently used than “Congress’ spending,” even though the president doesn’t have the authority to appropriate funds. The White House could be occupied by a sack of potatoes, and the national debt would still be rising at the same rate. So it goes with most domestic problems – The Congress farts around, and the president takes the blame.

    You’ll be singing a different tune when it’s Romney getting stalled by a Democratic minority Congress; Or rather, the shock jocks and pundits that think on your behalf will be singing a different tune, which, consequently, will change your tune as well.
