    And another day where MSNBC is hollaring…”we’re number 2!”

  • UpAndOver

    MSNBC will set us straight on the following tonight…

    I thought Holder wanted justice for all….

    I didn’t know it was only himself, Obama, Illegals and Democrat….

  • Rick

    The 8:00 ratings look strange with all the special coverage. It also appears that the posting at 7:00 has Kudlow on HLN. I think that Amanda needs to review the enteries and revise the tables.

  • Rick

    UpAndOver, Holder wants justice for all, according to Holder and Obama.

    It is all in who’s perspective you are considering.

  • Tired of Idiotic Comments

    While CNN and FOX News were reporting the Fast and Furious hearings and Pres. Obama’s part in the cover-up, msnbc was reporting that CNN and FOX are ignoring the more important news of unemployment and the bad economy. Holder and Pres. Obama’s involvement in the cover-up will be OBAMA’S WATERGATE and can no longer be ignored by the main stream media.

  • UpAndOver


    Let’s start with the ‘Rule of Law’…..

  • Italian Mike

    The national security leaks are worse. This President will never be held accountable by the lib media. They will ignore it and it will go away.

    Chris Matthews was off tonight. I just don’t know what I am going to do without his objective, thoughtful, insightful, and intellegent commentary.

    “I have a feeling up my leg. That doesn’t happen to me very often” He is the worst of the worst.

  • Scroll the Troll

    House Government Oversight Committee Votes 23-17 In Favor Of Making “Racism” The Official Language of the US

  • Italian Mike

    We rant on from the left and right. This is rigged game. We conservatives need to find a way to defeat the lib media. What we are doing here helps but we must expose them as the political operatives they are. The news would truly be fair and we could trust it if we were to expose the lib media to the masses of the country.

    The irony is we would probably find more common ground with progressives on wrong doing if both sides were treated equally.

  • Italian Mike

    I always forget my A’s. Were is the grammer policeman when I need him.

  • MathMan

    I wonder if Obama is going to echo Nixon and refer to the sovereigncy of the president? Citing Executive privilege will not be enough.

  • Italian Mike

    scroll the troll:

    Is everthing about race. If someone does something wrong do we ignore it they are a minority group?

  • Italian Mike

    Do we ignore it IF they are a minority group?

  • Italian Mike

    Tom Brokenjaw said, “How much do we really know about this President” shortly after President Obama was elected. The liberal media never wanted or bothered to ask. Now we know and it is too late.

    He is the one the liberal media has been waiting for. The dirty little secret is they did know and they did not want anyone else to. They know if they vetted him properly he would never have been elected.

    They would have never acknowledged the right Reverd Wright if Rush Limbuagh and Sean Hannity had not broadcast his rants coast to coast on national radio. Even then President Obama gave a speech on race and the lib media swooned with approval. President Obama sat in Reverd Wright’s church for twenty-years and never heard a word he said?

  • Steve Perry

    @Italian Mike…”President Obama sat in Reverd Wright’s church for twenty-years and never heard a word he said?”

    -I crack up when Republicans say the Obama is an extremist Muslim but then say he was taught by the Christian radical Jeremiah Wright for 20 years. So which is it…is Obama an extremist Muslim or a Christian radical? You guys can never make up your minds.

  • Ratboy

    It just gets worse every day!

    $9 Billion in ‘Stimulus’ for Solar, Wind Projects Made 910 Final Jobs — $9.8 Million Per Job

    The Obama administration distributed $9 billion in economic “stimulus” funds to solar and wind projects in 2009-11 that created, as the end result, 910 “direct” jobs — annual operation and maintenance positions — meaning that it cost about $9.8 million to establish each of those long-term jobs.

    At the same time, those green energy projects also created, in the end, about 4,600 “indirect” jobs – positions indirectly supported by the annual operation and maintenance jobs — which means they cost about $1.9 million each ($9 billion divided by 4,600).

    Combined (910 + 4,600 = 5,510), the direct and indirect jobs cost, on average, about $1.63 million each to produce.

  • Ratboy

    Yep this is Obama looking out for the people! His son would look like Travon but Brian Terry………………….So What!!!

    Brian Terry family ‘disappointed’ with Obama on Fast and Furious

    Obama tries to shield Holder from contempt charge
    Obama asserts privilege he once derided
    Campaign Roundup: Too Fast and Furious?
    House Dems focus on gun control in Fast and Furious hearing
    Holder retracts claim Bush team knew about Fast and Furious
    After talks fail, Holder faces contempt vote
    AG seeks deal on eve of contempt vote
    House panel sets contempt vote against Holder

    The family of slain Border Patrol agent Brian Terry have released the following statement, on the day the House Oversight Committee weighs a Contempt of Congress Resolution against Attorney General Holder, for his failure to disclose information related to Operation Fast and Furious.

    Attorney General Eric Holder’s refusal to fully disclose the documents associated with Operation Fast and Furious and President Obama’s assertion of executive privilege serves to compound this tragedy. It denies the Terry family and the American people the truth. Our son, Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, was killed by members of a Mexican drug cartel armed with weapons from this failed Justice Department gun trafficking investigation. For more than 18 months we have been asking our federal government for justice and accountability. The documents sought by the House Oversight Committee and associated with Operation Fast and Furious should be produced and turned over to the committee. Our son lost his life protecting this nation, and it is very disappointing that we are now faced with an administration that seems more concerned with protecting themselves rather than revealing the truth behind Operation Fast and Furious.

  • Joey

    Eric ‘Witholder’ burns for Obama,,how sad is that..BO is a sinking ship absolutely groundless to run for anything, yet Eric ‘Witholder’ so loyal and would take a fall despite a winless cause

  • Italian Mike

    @Steve Perry:

    I never though President Obama was a Muslim. I think he is pretty much a secular athiest. He goes to church once in a awhile but I think he does not believe much in that faithy Goddy thing.

    I don’t want to preach to you but do you know what the bible says about that man with man, women with women thing? I like seeing two women together but I have a lot to answer for too. I just can’t stand the sight of the male body. I take off my clothes and I make myself sick. OK a little too much information.

  • Italian Mike

    I never thought

    I really need to edit my material. Where is the grammer policeman when I need him!
