  • Pundit

    Another poll that shows conservative enthusiasm for Romney. Bret Baier gets 2 million+ viewers? On a Monday? In the summer? Fox News gets a 6 AM to Midnight average of 1.2 million viewers — which is more than any fricking show on MSNBCNNCNBCHLN. 40 states.

  • Italian Mike

    The Sununu comment was a off base though I think it is mildly unamerican to say people who work hard and build a business are somehow lucky and needed help. I can’t count how many people I know who never had help form anyone including the Government getting their business off the ground. If anything the Government taxed them hard.

    Does anyone believe what Sununu said was racist but that will be the narative and the lib. media will sell it.

  • Jeff

    Sununu is just very passionate and very extreme in the way he delivers his message. I don’t think he meant it to be racist or to imply that President Obama was actually un-American. Now if he listens to Rush or Hannity I can see why those words fell out of his mouth in the manner they did. His record does not indicate he has a racist bone in his body. I disagree with everything he said in his statement, and feel he is wrong on every level about our President’s efforts. He explained what he meant and he did apologize. The GOP would be crying for him to be fired if a Democrat said something like this.

  • Mark

    O obama. What a idiot. That man is the worst person in the freakin world. Liberals are obsessed with talking about ANYTHING but there policies! CHANGE the subject.thats all the liberals do. Just stick to the economy and obamacare mr romney! Just keep getting that message out.

  • Jeff

    Here’s a email Lbsles won’t share from President Obama campaign, because Lbsles is a lil kookoo!!

    If I emailed you every time Rush Limbaugh said something nutty, I wouldn’t be allowed on the internet anymore.

    But Mitt Romney says he finds it “hard to disagree with Rush Limbaugh,” so here’s the latest direct quote from Rush:

    “I think it can now be said, without equivocation — without equivocation — that this man hates this country. He is trying — Barack Obama is trying — to dismantle, brick by brick, the American dream.”

    Rush isn’t some loose cannon — he’s apparently right in line with the Romney campaign’s talking points.

    This morning, top Romney surrogate and former Republican Governor of New Hampshire John Sununu called the White House “dumb,” and, on an official Romney campaign conference call with reporters, even said: “I wish this president would learn how to be an American.”

    The only way to stop the disturbing hate campaign from the Romney team is to show them that decisions like this have a cost.

    Thank you,


    Julianna Smoot
    Deputy Campaign Manager
    Obama for America

  • Jim

    Jeff, your the poster child for the left ” A stupid pos”
    ” Hey Suikostinger,” why don’t you call out Jeff and Boss for their 1st grade name calling? But you won’t,yet you’ll call out others on name calling and spelling. Suikostinger you made it a big deal when Mike first posted here and use ‘there’ instead of’ their .’I didn’t see you popping off when Jeff used ‘no when he should have used know’ when he reply to ratboy earlier today.Suikostinger,does playing spell check cop make you feel important while sitting behind a computer screen?

  • Jeff

    Mark didnt you know?? Romney has to run from Obamacare….

    Because of Romneycare!

    He also has to run from Bain, his personal finances, and his job as Govenor of MA. His pro choice support, his gay marriage support, remember he’s his left of Kennedy Flip flop flip flop.

  • Jeff

    Jim lied when he claimed he worked for the EPA, he outted himself while making many false claims and attempts at insulting other people, he dumb!! Lol, His poor grammar and communications skills are demonstrated every time he floats up on this site.

    Jim also seems to come on just to post about suiko and myself. Sound familiar?

  • Suikostinger

    ’I didn’t see you popping off when Jeff used ‘no when he should have used know’ when he reply to ratboy earlier today.Suikostinger,does playing spell check cop make you feel important while sitting behind a computer screen?

    I don’t complain about people not knowing how to spell unless they call someone dumb or a retard like Mike did in the same sentence that he used the word there or their wrong in, just like right now he used the words wrong 3 times or so and I haven’t said anything……get a grip. BTW, I HAVE told Jeff and corrected him, a long time ago, you really think I’m going to do it EVERY TIME he does it? HAHAHAHA.

    I have also said to Jeff about his name calling a long time ago too and theboss doesn’t count because every time I’ve seen him call someone a name was AFTER that same person called someone else a name….so open your sheep eyes buddy.

  • Suikostinger

    Kind of like I said nothing about your incorrect use of the word “your” in the VERY first sentence you posted. I wouldn’t have said anything about it unless you attacked me or name called someone else, calling them an idiot yet can’t get a 5th grade word correctly. :) You might need to go out to Walmart or something so you can go buy a CLUE.

  • Coffee Steve

    I just woke up and have no idea or conception on what time it is or what day it is :-)

  • Coffee Steve

    You might need to go out to Walmart or something so you can go buy a CLUE.

    Are they on sale? I need a few LOL

  • 1nancy2

    Well, Hello, Coffee,
    I think that’s a good thing that you don’t know what time or day it is! Now, that’s living, coffee. Speaking of Coffee, I went to Tuesday Morning and scored some flavored coffee: Pecan Turtle….l lb…13.00 orig. marked down to 6.50 and went I went to buy them, it rang up at 3.50!!per bag. Austerity is alive and well. Here we are scrimping and doing BOGO’s (buy one get one), while the bankers who robbed the American people of trillions are still walking around, free. Amazing, isn’t it? I see gas is creeping up again too. What can you do? I say, have fun! See you later.

  • TheBoss1

    Rachel on her show tonight:

    “Do you know how bad the left-wing loons out in Hollyweird want to keep their liberal, socialist, Kenyan, Muslim puppet in office so we can take over America, rob the people of their free will, and rule us all forever with the death panels, the gay military, and the free stuff? Do you know how bad? Do you know how bad? BAD!”


    Go, Rachel, Go!

  • TheBoss1

    “The whole MSNBC lineup did well yesterday. I was hoping they would tank.” — Italian Mike.

    At least I.M. is being honest, and I know that the fact that the MSNBC lineup did well drives righties NUTS! I’ll bring the rope for your folks.

  • Jeff

    Well I heard the all the statements made today by John Sununu, and some of his statements go way too far. Direct out of Rush Limbaughs talk show. So sadly Mr. Sununu has made a series of stupid remarks that are seriously offensive to many Americans and sadly they were racist. I really liked the guy (Sununu)and am very disappointed in his conduct the past few days. It seems they are really bitter over Romneys recent campaign blunders.


    Hey Ratboy, seems a majority from both parties feel Mitt Romney should release more of his tax records. You spend too much time on Fox News, Drudge and newsbusters. You missed something, again.

  • TheBoss1

    @Jim … I only call them the way I see them. Batty Betty and loony lbsles deserve each other … a marriage made in a white, padded room.

  • TheBoss1

    Watching Rush (and his surrogate Sununu) meltdown is so highly entertaining. Are they high? At least Limbaugh is a drug addict. What is Sununu’s excuse?

  • lbsles

    Just for the boss of no one

    Obama calls the Internet the “Internate”

    Obama may rethink the idea to wean himself off the teleprompter.

    I’m sure that not one dumbocrat caught the error of this teleprompt reader.


    I’m sur

  • lbsles

    Yea he knows what is going on he just can not keep up with his own lies.

    At Campaign Fundraiser Obama Calls Individual Mandate a Tax…Again

    Except those of us who pay our own health care can expect to see your premiums go up to cover those 70 million who are going to be tax through ObamaCare. All our taxes are going up as this doofus spends the majority of his presidency spending is towards insolvency and fundraising to keep his job. But then again he is a dumbocrat.
