    Betty–I was wondering about comparing the morning numbers and night numbers for demos. I need to ck how he did against others in the same time slot.

  • DB

    Unemployment at 14 percent( the real unemployment rate), economy almost not growing at all, the congress about to vote on contempt charges for the Attorney General, the White House is leaking national secrets to help the president, the supreme court about to rule on Obama’s signature legislation, Syria and Turkey about to go to war, Iran threatens to block the straits of Hormuz and suiko and the other libs bring up a nonstory from a year ago about Michele Obama her already known opinion of the USA. It won’t work guys and girls– the focus is going to be on the big issues not the irrelevant things you use to try to take our focus off the lousy job Obama is doing. But hey, suiko, it was a little more important than your muffin obsession. By the way suiko, only a liberal would have brought up this piece of trivia. Remember though, you promised not to vote.

  • Italian Mike


    I couldn’t have said it any better myself.

  • Love Potion 9

    Crystal Ball on MSNBC – her parents names were Medicine and Rubber.

    Brothers Name – Foot and Base

    Uncle Named – Ball Gravy

  • Jeff

    @italian mike, I hope you share the same intolerance for those that call our President a Muslim or comment on his faith, example Rev Wright, seems the righties leaders have no issue with involving religion in their criticism. Wright said some horrible things, but many organized religions including the Mormons have and do horrible things in our society and in our Govt.

    Either way, when religion has no issue bullying their theology in our law and on our lawmakers it seems that they could be considered fair game especially how much since the GOP has revived the Rev. Wright story. The odd by Christian standards Mormon Faith will be exploited the same. Might get ugly if the GOP continues to use karl rove toilet tact to try to win an election.

    1.You can catch Michele Obama SAYING ” and all this for an American flag” on youtube,see for youeself.

    I have seen the video. I can come up with 5 different things that it looks like she’s saying.


    Again with the lies to try to defame me. Jessica hit it right on the head about you.

    “Hormuz and suiko and the other libs bring up a nonstory from a year ago about Michele Obama her already known opinion of the USA. ”

    Actually dim wit, I didn’t bring it up. As I said someone on the RIGHT brought it up yesterday on this very same website. I’m pointing it out that it is yet again a FALSE story from a mass email. But I can understand how you are so ignorant to such conversations. I agree with Jessica on her assessment on you. You are ignorant vile and just outright dumb.

  • DB

    Love Potion 9, great post!! By the way, Crystal couldn’t make it on Fox and was sent to the minors like Margaret Hoover.

  • Italian Mike



    The focus should be on the failings of President Obama. The supporters of the President must distract if things do not improve. He is toast no matter what anyone says if things get worse.

  • Letmethink

    Margaret Hoover’s valley girl voice made her hard to watch. Hadn’t noticed but she hasn’t been on in a long time.

  • DB

    suiko, I think she may have said ” All this for some muffins”. I think you are calling me names now just to show off for Jessica.

  • Italian Mike



    Some of those points are well taken. I never thought the President was a Muslim. I errored in saying I thought he was more secular athiest. I should have said I believe he is a bit of an agnostic. He goes to church on occasion and who knows what’s in a mans heart. I do look at his actions as they pretain to faith.

  • Jeff

    Italian mike,

    4million plus jobs created, unemployment down, corps at all time record profits
    GM Chrysler saved
    OBL killed
    Many Alqeda leaders DEAD
    Iraq war ended
    Obama care 5 million more kids, elderly, and people covered

    The distraction is on the Right Wing side of the isle of delusion.
    Their record is obstruction every step of the way.

    Let us all remember the stirring words of Michelle Obama and the President’s acquiescence (9-11 Event).

    “All this for a damn flag”


    Saying I come up with nonstories? Actually, I argue nonstories telling how dumb they are especially when they are from fake mass emails. Nice try DB. Just proved that a person from the RIGHT came up with a non story to try to defame someone over nothing at all. Seems like you are wrong yet again….what’s that make 50 times now. :)

  • Italian Mike

    I thought Kyrstal Ball’s parents names were Lucy and Ricky?

  • DB

    Italian Mike, I agree 100 percent. That is why Obama is trying everything he can to take our eyes off his record. Won’t work and if things do get worse, not only here but in Europe and the Middle East, his performance will only get more scrutiny.

    By the way Italian Mike, pls notice the responses to my post. suiko, called me five names(called me ignorant twice). I don’t think it is over yet either. The only name I called suiko was liberal which I will admit was not nice but true.

  • DB

    Letmethink, Margaret is at MSNBC now. The place where commentators go to not be heard.

  • Italian Mike



    There are less people working today than four years ago. They have long since stopped counting me.

    5 TRILLION added to the national debt.

    The treasury is taking in the same amount of money as four years ago. You can raise taxes on the rich but that will only get you so far.

  • Jessica

    Actually DB and suiko, suiko, you WERE in conversations about muffins but you were not bringing up a non story like DB says. A person or two were talking about how the gvt paid for 16 dollar muffins and you proved that the story was half false and you were arguing saying that they were wrong. So DB is wrong about you coming up with a non story about muffins. You were just proving those 2 people that it was a story with half truths and that the 2 were making up yet another non story about the president. My comments still stand, DB you are a vile deranged human being. I’m going back to my corner. I don’t want to stoop to the level that some people are on in here.

  • Jeff


    Wow multiple opinions without attacking you or me in them, seems that after months & months of the same thing (post just to insult people) may have finally has taken its toll).

    Think a lesson was learned???


  • Italian Mike

    You guys don’t like each other I get it. When I was young there was this guy and he couldn’t stand me. I asked why he didn’t like and he told me, “I don’t there are some people you just don’t like.” After I got to know him a bit, not only did he not like me I couldn’t stand him either. Move on fellas. Beat each other up on policy and forget the personal stuff.
