    Issa is about as popular as Ken Starr. His agenda is obvious.

  • Jeff


    Ken WHOOOOOO!?!

  • Mark

    @Coffee Steve

    15 swing states? By my count there is 9 legit swing states, plus maybe another 3 or 4 that are borderline switching but most likely will remain the same way they normally lean

  • Jeff

    Coffee Steve, I look forward to that amazing fireworks display!!!!


    Boy oh boy!! He knows that America is falling in line with the President on The ACA.

    MCCONNELL: ‘IT’S A LOT HARDER’ TO UNDO OBAMACARE | Republicans have pledged to fully repeal the Affordable Care Act if the party regains control of the Senate and presidency in 2012. But Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) is less than confident about the probability of eliminating the law. Speaking to a small group in Elizabethtown, Kentucky on Monday, McConnell admitted, “If you thought it was a good idea for the federal government to go in this direction, I’d say the odds are still on your side. Because it’s a lot harder to undo something than it is to stop it in the first place.” Indeed, Republicans face an uphill battle in undoing the measure.

    Here’s why they get their ratings, they so funny!!!!!!

    Fox News Psychiatrist: Obamacare ‘Absolutely Infantilizes Americans’

    Last week, conservatives responded to the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act by issuing flamboyant denunciations of the the justices and the court. Glenn Beck labeled Chief Justice John Roberts a “coward,” a New Hampshire Tea Party leader said he hopes the justices in the majority contract cancer, and prominent GOP-aligned websites claimed that…

  • Ratboy

    Hey maybe somebody can help me out here. After all I am old and the memory is going, so how many OWS protests got shut down by the secret service?? I am sure there were a bunch because there was all kinds of “suspicious packages” in their tent cities right?? :twisted:

    Secret Service shuts down ‘fire Eric Holder’ protest

    U.S. Secret Service officers shut down a student-led protest calling for President Obama to fire Attorney General Eric Holder this morning, according to a report from in front of the White House.

    After discovering a “suspicious package,” the Secret Service ended the protest. “Several agents seemed hostile to our march and seemed anxious for us to leave the area,” Maurice Lewis, a University of California student, told Campus Reform. “The discover[y of] the ‘unidentified package’ came just as the protest began gain traction.”

    The real boob job is Willard Mitt Romney…

    Romney Surrogate Falsely Claims That Obamacare Would Harm Breast Cancer Patients

    Following the Supreme Court’s ruling to uphold the Affordable Care Act, Republicans are renewing their attacks against reform law by claiming that it will harm health care. On Sunday, Carly Fiorina — a Mitt Romney surrogate and a cancer surviver — fear mongered against the law, telling Candy Crowley on CNN’s State of the Union that Obamacare would have undermined her access to medical services:……

    FUN FACTOID: Senator Boxer of California kicked Carly Fiorina a$$ in 2010 election. :lol:

  • Paul

    And in other news ….. Rupert Murdoch tweets about Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes; calls Scientology ‘weird,’ ‘creepy’

    Wonder if Rupert is aware Greta Van Susteren and her husband are members of Scientology?

  • Scroll the Troll

    Your point is one I’ve made a few times in here. Look at everything Obama has going for him. All three networks, all cable news networks except Fox, almost every Newspaper, he’s the incumbent, there are many who will gladly tell you what a rotten candidate they think Romney is, on and on Obama has every advantage. Even with all that going for him he still can’t poll but a few points above the margin of error on even the most left biased polls. If he’s doing so well he should be 20 points ahead and walking on water too. Probably Bush’s fault that he’s not.

  • Jeff


    All less than 50 of those people protesting Holder must of been really upset. Lol!

    They should not bring suspicious items near Federal establishments. Duh!

    Plus only proves all the Fox News & neo con violence hype against OWS was mostly BS.

  • Ratboy

    Well Jeff you are at it again posting crap! below is what she said and I know first hand hsnd she is 100% correct. I lived and worke in England for a while and one of the guys that worked for me had to go to private doctors to get timely treatment for his wife with breast cancer. They too offered the screening but due to the lack of doctors and equiptment even though free made waits months not days!! the same thing will happen here because the doctors are going to opt out causing a shortage of places to go. If you think for a minute that it works in England or Canada, I got a lake in the desert to sell you!

    Research man and your credability will be much stronger!!

    FIORINA: As a cancer survivor, I will also say this. It terrifies me that the survival rates for breast cancer, which is what I had, are so much worse in the U.K. and Canada. Why? Because they don’t focus on prevention and aggressive detection in the same way we do.

  • Ratboy

    @ Jeff
    Plus only proves all the Fox News & neo con violence hype against OWS was mostly BS.

    Just one more question before I go take care of a few things. Is the only mode of operation for the left “if you cant blame Bush blame FOX!” :lol: :lol:


  • Matthew

    “After all I am old and the memory is going, so how many OWS protests got shut down by the secret service??”

    At least one, back in January, since that protest (like the Holder one) was being held in front of the White House, and got out of hand. Of course, I realize this isn’t a real question, and that you’re trying to make a “fair and balanced” argument, because in the fantasy world you live in the White House should send the Secret Service to clear Zuccotti Park, or some stupid horsesh*t like that.

  • Coffee Steve

    15 swing states?

    I only posted that because at this point the polls mean nothing. CNN’s track record hasn’t been very good for years either. I think soon though we should get a reading on which way the polls are leaning, but over 60% don’t even know whose running till the conventions anyway. :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    Dag nab it, now they are saying if it doesn’t rain tonight around here the fireworks ban is back on, Well doo doo, yes I said doo doo

  • Italian Mike

    I want you lefties to stop making fun of Willard Mitt Romney’s name. Your guys name is Barrack Hussein Obama. I know another famous Hussein. I can’t quite place him right now.

  • Jeff

    @ratboy, your BS sauce is getting way too thick!!

    Aren’t Republicans defunding and trying to shut down planned parenthood??? YES!!!!!
    That is where a huge number of women get breast screening preformed and many other services for women’s medical needs.
    So don’t play Saint Carly, she is a multi millionaire and received the treatment she needed to beat her cancer. While she and your party seek to limit and eliminate a great service provider for women’s health services.

    As far as you taking her words and making them scripture??? BS!

    So universal insurance is as bad as no insurance, right? Not so fast. For one thing, survival rates in Canada, Japan, Australia and Cuba were all comparable to or higher than U.S. survival rates on all types of cancer that the Lancet study examined, except for prostate cancer. Those countries all have some form of government-provided health care coverage. Prostate cancer often doesn’t require treatment, so the aggressive screening common in the U.S. turns up both early cases and cases that would never need intervention. This leads to an inflated survival rate in the U.S., where asymptomatic patients are more likely to be diagnosed.

    So you really think that we are going to throw all that training research and equipment away to save people with cancer, because we are going to ensure almost every American citizen?
    You see it as NOOO! Let them die uninsured!!
    I see it as more jobs and more opportunities and less people that die from this and many diseases.
    But I know that your party cheers at the thought of people dying uninsured, remember the GOP debate.

  • Italian Mike

    Ok Willard Mitt is a goofy name.

  • Jeff

    Insure…not ensure

  • AppleStinx

    Are ratings for AC360 going to be up/down/no change tonight? Any guesses?
