    U2 coffee!!! Thanks:)

    Lol suiko, we are celebs to them apparently, you can have the leading role. :lol:

    Italian Mike, really enjoy your posts! Thanks for sharing your opinions.

    Will get you some info tomorrow.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @lbsles: >>> If you win Dinner with Barack, I’ll be the one approving your flight arrangements from your town to your dinner with the President and First Lady. <<<

    What? The last thing I would think, based on your posts, is that you work for the Obama campaign.

    Anyway, if I had won the contest for Dinner With The Obamas, it would be hard to have an intimate conversation with the President with a teleprompter wedged between us.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @REM: I see that little Jeffie has been on a tear today, armed with his media matters’ links. Tsk, tsk, tsk.

  • DB

    Jeffie and suiko, definitely celebs– the three stooges come to mind( add in Stevie). What is it about libs that make them think they are celebs–is this something you learned from Obama? BTW, you guys need to read the Amateur and be sure to see the movie 2016. You won’t learn anything because your minds are closed but something truthful might sneak into your little brains by accident. Not you suiko, I know you have no ability to comprehend the written word. You have proven that many times, heck you can’t even comprehend you own written words.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @DB: Celebs, my a$s. They’re words are just dumb. We should ignore them and let their kindergarden student’s thoughts fly by, but it will only work IF everyone ignores their liberal babble. At age 18, I was a liberal Democrat when I cast my first vote. Now, I’m a conservative Republican. Hey. I grew up.

  • Suikostinger

    LOL @ Ralph…. saying our words our dumb yet doesn’t even know the difference between their and they’re…..

    Actually, it was Ratboy that first came up with the celeb/star thing. I mentioned him one time and he said “man I’m a star because you mentioned my name.”

    Says the dumb wit DB who completely ignores a crazy insane loon mass copying and pasting on the first page and goes straight to the liberal, attacking him (Jeff). Says the guy that doesn’t want gays to get married in his state, yet that same state allows cousins to get married…..LOL DB is the most hypocritical idiot there is out there.

    “@REM: I see that little Jeffie has been on a tear today, armed with his media matters’ links. Tsk, tsk, tsk.”

    While I disagree with Jeff and the media matter copying and paste, I find it hilarious that you completely ignore the conservative wack job on the first page.

    “IF everyone ignores their liberal babble.”

    Liberal babble? I find it hilarious that if you agree with anything Obama or a liberal does you are automatically called a liberal even WHEN I’ve attacked MSNBC and liberals also.

  • Suikostinger

    “They’re words are just dumb.”

    If you are going to call ANYONES words “dumb” you might want to use their and they’re correctly. :)

  • Steve Perry

    Laura Ingraham??? I thought she was a man in drag…lol.

    Even Ingraham slapped down Jan Brewer for trying to claim a victory today…poor Jan, she even gets beat up by other Conservatives.

  • Suikostinger

    “BTW, you guys need to read the Amateur ”

    You can read!!?

    “You won’t learn anything because your minds are closed”

    My mind is closed!!? Man, you need a wake up call.

  • Suikostinger

    Don’t worry guys. According to DB my mind is closed. Even though I read the book The Great Destroyer. What a dim wit.

  • Jeff

    @DB _________________________________________________________________________________________.

  • Jeff

    Ralph Hahn is not too bright, now a neoncon because he grew up? He must live under power lines, either way I don’t really pay any attention to him or his opinions.

    Way too inconsistent!

    No offense, your just he’s just a dope!

  • Suikostinger

    Exactly Jeff. Being a conservative can’t mean you’ve grown up…..just take DB for example. He acts like a little 8 year old.

  • Jeff


    @Ralph Hahn

    No offense he’s just a dope!*

  • Jeff


    More like 88, and never grew up. Our 8 year olds are much smarter and more open minded than he demonstrates, db is out of touch, miserable, stubborn, grumpy, delusional, & maybe needs better meds or put the bottle down.
    Nothing against the elderly, just this particular nut is a total a$$hole.

    “My job is to cover these things, not to tell you how I like them or not.” – Rachel Maddow

    Really? Then why is she CONSTANTLY telling us what SHE thinks about THINGS…lol…everything she covers on her show, she tells us what she thinks, but when asked if she was for Romneycare, she almost cried…

    why? First, if she says she was for Romneycare,that means she’s proud of something the republican Romney did, and therefore slapping obama in the face…if she says no, since Obamacare is supposed to be based on Romneycare, that means she doesn’t like Obamacare, and therefore slapping obama in the face…and since she was too ignorant to answer at all, she slapped herself. And let’s not forget all of her cohorts at MSDNC who are constantly telling us what they think, as if what they think means squat to intelligent people…

    Obama’s Campaign Money Woes

    From Bloomberg

    *Democrats May Drop Speedway Event at Charlotte Convention

    Democrats are considering canceling their political convention’s kick-off event at the Charlotte Motor Speedway, as party planners grapple with a roughly $27 million fundraising deficit, according to two people familiar with matter.

    Convention and campaign officials will make a final decision later this week after Steve Kerrigan, the chief executive officer of the Charlotte, North Carolina convention committee, discusses the matter with President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign, based in Chicago, said the two people, who requested anonymity to discuss internal party politics.

    Last week, the U.S. Senate voted 95-4 to end public funding for the both party’s national nominating conventions, adopting an amendment from Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn.

  • Coffee Steve

    This is from a very Liberal writer for Louisville Paper the courier-journal. The paper itself leans way left. It concerns the mostly unreported problem about President Obama was having trouble in many states running against No One

    *Will Obama drag down Kentucky Democrats?

    It’s difficult to look at President Barack Obama’s closer-than-expected win over “uncommitted” in Kentucky’s presidential primaries and not feel a sense of doom for the Democrats who will share a ballot with him in the fall.

    He lost to “uncommitted,” which translates loosely into “none of the above,” in some of the most Democratic counties in Kentucky — and by wide margins in many of them.

    He failed to beat his nonexistent foe in 68 counties, many of which are represented by Democrats in the Kentucky House and Senate. If you discount the votes in the three counties along Interstate 64 from Jefferson to Franklin, he would have lost the state altogether.

    Even President Jimmy Carter, running for re-election in 1980, got 67 percent of the vote against a living, breathing and popular politician, Sen. Edward Kennedy. What’s more, he didn’t lose a county.

    It doesn’t matter why he did so poorly for many in Kentucky politics. What matters is whether he will hurt other Democrats’ chances in November.
