    Early Start is the lowest I have seen. Again I ask, how much longer will CNN keep these people?

    Obama Bundler, and Soros Goon, Behind California Mortgage Seizure Scheme

    Eminent-domain is when the state or government steals land/property from taxpayers and provides “just compensation” for the thievery. Now liberals want to steal underwater mortgages to make a profit. Obama and Soros are tied to the scheme. Shocking?

    Birds of a feather flock together as do crooks..

    Should-Have-Known File: Big-Time Obama Fundraiser in Mortgage Seizure Scheme

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., exhorted Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to stimulate the economy before November through some form of quantitative easing or other monetary policy, which Bernanke said could create jobs.

    “Despite two false starts, we’re having a much rougher time than we ever imagined getting unemployment down,” Schumer told the Senate Banking Committee. “So get to work, Mr. Chairman.” Schumer said Bernanke needed to stimulate the economy because Congress refuses — “maybe after November we will,” he opined.

    “We will act in an apolitical, non-partisan manner to do what is necessary for the economy,” Bernanke replied. “We have said we are willing to take further action,” he added, saying “it’s very important that we see sustained improvement in the labor market.”

    Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., observing that Bernanke was “clearly considering” more quantitative easing, warned against the plan. “If we’re printing more money to buy more of our national debt,” he said, “we are diluting the value of our dollar over time.”

    In case you missed it

    I bet ole Jeff will tell you that you are wrong wrong wrong on this one! He lives in Ca. and he would know if it is true or not! After all he set us straight on the foreclosure issue! Even though it is reported that Ca. now leads in forclosures he let us know that the real answer is NOPE! :twisted:

    It’s already started. Getting a jump on the anticipated hype coming this week around the last Batman movie, “Dark Knight Rises,” the Obama-Biden campaign has decided who they want their leading men to play: Batman and Robin.

    In a tweet sent out Sunday, the campaign showed President Obama and Vice President Biden high-fiving under the headline “Dynamic Duo.”

  • Italian Mike

    Even Tingles broke the 200,000 mark in key demo.

  • lbsles

    The first 2 quantitative easing didn’t stimulate the economy. Neither will a 3rd debt buying/money printing scheme. Bernanke testified and said he would not monetize the debt. He lied and yet Congress hasn’t charged him with perjury. Why?

  • Lawrence Glavin

    Ed Schultz gets 1.7 million when you add up the total viewers at 8:00 and 11:00 pm. Lawrence squeezes out a 1K win in the Demo over the Scientologist. (I like to say that because it brings out the venom from the, um, “deep thinkers” around here!) The Chris-less “Hardball” reaches close to 1.7 million over the two showings at 5:00 and 7:00 pm. I’m seeing ads for Jaguar automobiles on the soon-to-be-renamed MSNBC. I’m a big Rachel and Lawrence fan, so I think I’ll go out and buy one tomorrow to show my support.

    Good afternoon all.

    It took me longer towash 2 bike then it took me to wash a 41 foot trailer. :twisted:

  • Italian Mike

    I just watched the next segment of Tingles live and that is all I can take.

    He had Eugene Robinson and Keith Ellison on pounding the racism thing. I hope I didn’t do anything wrong by mentioning Robinson and Ellison were on the show.

    Tingles said this, “President Obama was the perfect student, the perfect husband, the perfect father.” He also said President Obama never broke any laws. That is not exactly true. By his own admision he toked and snorted.

    I tryed but I can’t watch Tingles anymore my stomach won’t take watching this sycopant prattle own. Journalist he calls himself

    Trump to Fed: No More Easing Because Dollar Is ‘Going to H3ll’

    “The dollar is going to go to h3ll, we’re no longer the great source and lots of things are happening and lots of bad things are happening with the country,” Trump said.

    “All of this artificial stimulus — it’s proven it’s done nothing, and we’ve got to get back on track. We have to get back on track by paying down debt. We’re not going to be doing it if [Fed Chairman Ben] Bernanke goes wild.”

    Batman villain creator reacts to character’s comparison to Romney – ‘Ridiculous’..’Overgrasping Dems’

    Well here’s a non-sensical comparison from Democrats for the Obama campaign to use. According to Paul Bedard at The Washington Examiner, the Obama campaign takes Batman’s new enemy Bane, a pumped up venom gas breathing maniac, in the movie “The Dark Knight Rises” and compares him to presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, because of the Massachusetts GOP’ers previous work with the investment firm Bain Capital, which Obama and Democrats say was a job killer. Get it–Bane and Bain? Bedard writes:

    Comic book writer Chuck Dixon created the character of Bane with Graham Nolan in the early 90’s and Dixon’s reaction to the news above, according to his message board on his website Dixonverse.net, was “I saw it on FB like two hours ago. Ridiculous. Tho’ I got a cold feeling in the pit of my stomach that Rush (Limbaugh) may pick up on this. And that would be the second time he pegged me and Graham as liberals on his show.”


  • lbsles

    RUSH: You know who’s next? Doctors. And it’s not Obamacare. It’s not Medicare copayments. It’s not any of that. You know how they’re gonna go after doctors? Very simple, and I might even see Obama make this speech this summer. It might even happen before the campaign.
