  • Tired of Idiotic Comments

    I see where Sheldon Addleson (millionaire casino owner) is suing the DNC as well as Rachel Maddow (MSNBC paid spokesperson for the DNC)for their slander.

  • Rick

    Looks like CNN had their BIG NIGHT Monday and on Tuesday everybody went back to doing something that was more stimulating. A lot of People must have had a good weekend and when it came to watching Cable News on Monday they decided the wanted to watch something they could sleep through.

  • Ratboy

    Funny how people fail to get certain information isnt it.

    ABC, CBS & NBC Wait Five Days to Report Obama’s ‘You Didn’t Build That’ Attack on Business

    When Barack Obama insulted job creators everywhere, last Friday, by charging: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that, somebody else made that happen,” the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks didn’t pounce on the politically damaging remark. It took five full days and Romney making it the centerpiece of his speech on Tuesday before the first network mention – by Peter Alexander on last evening’s NBC Nightly News. In fact, Obama’s soundbite was ran exactly once, in the aforementioned Alexander report. Neither CBS or ABC ran Obama’s actual quote.

    However, when former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu, on Tuesday, said he wished Obama “would learn how to be an American” NBC jumped to report the story on the very same day on that evening’s Nightly News. CBS got to the Sununu remark on Wednesday’s This Morning. ABC’s World News and Good Morning America have yet to mention the Sununu statement.

    Democrats apply legislative pressure on Mitt Romney to release more tax returns

    Congressional Democrats are using the legislative process to pressure Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney to release more tax returns and information about his investments in offshore accounts.


    Most members of Congress keep their tax returns secret

    WASHINGTON — Rep. Nancy Pelosi was emphatic. Mitt Romney’s refusal to release more than two years of his personal tax returns, she said, makes him unfit to win confirmation as a member of the president’s Cabinet, let alone to hold the high office himself.

    Sen. Harry Reid went farther: Romney’s refusal to make public more of his tax records makes him unfit to be a dogcatcher.

    They do not, however, think that standard of transparency should apply to them. The two Democratic leaders of the Senate and the House of Representatives are among hundreds of senators and representatives from both parties who refused to release their tax records. Just 17 out of the 535 members of Congress released their most recent tax forms or provided some similar documentation of their tax liabilities in response to requests from McClatchy over the last three months. Another 19 replied that they wouldn’t release the information, and the remainder never responded to the query

  • UpAndOver

    The people that work and vote are now outnumbered by those that only vote…

    The democrats ‘own’ the ‘urban’ areas….

    Come, vote for us, we provide all you need, housing, food and healthcare….

    LA, SF, NY, D.C., Las Vegas, Phoenix, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, Houston, Dallas…

    There are many more but you see the pattern….

    Carney On Why Jobs Council Hasn’t Met In Six Months: Obama Has “A Lot On His Plate”

    REPORTER: On the Jobs Council, obviously they’ve reported to haven’t met formally or publicly for six months. Why is exactly is that?

    REPORTER: So there’s no reason they haven’t met publicly?

    CARNEY: No, there’s no specific reason except that the president’s obviously got a lot on his plate. But he continues to solicit and receive advice from numerous folks outside the administration about the economy, about ideas he can act on with Congress or administratively to help the economy grow and help it create jobs.


    Obama returns to Virginia for golf

    President Barack Obama returned to Virginia for the third time in as many days Sunday.

    But unlike his campaign visits on Friday and Saturday, his most recent visit to the battleground state was a golf outing.

  • Barry & Mooch has to go

    Tired of Idiot Comments
    Maddow should also be sued for pretending he’s a woman.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Sicilian Papa is Italian Mike

    Ratboy thought Italian Mike was not Italiano enough.

    Papa is easy to spell and not to long. Short for Papaleo. Actually my nickname in High School was Pap. Yes they named the smear after me but that was in my younger days.

    Sicilian Papa, sounds like I have kids which I don’t. Well, none that we know about. Again my younger days

    Hey, I needed a change anyway and Sicilian Papa is a lot more Italian than Italian Mike. Italian Mike could come back in the future as,

    Mickey Blue Eyes

    Mikey the Knife

    The S

  • Jeff

    Coffee Steve I’m gonna let you have this one…..

    Rush said that the evil character in the New Batman movie named “Bane” is purposely named after Bain Capital to make Mitt look bad. Because everyone going to see the movie is brain dead.

    It’s all yours buddy! ;)

  • Laurence Glavin

    Rachel goes on the teevee machine and ridicules right-wing looney-tunes promoting a Muslim Brotherhood-US Government conspiracy and then John McCain seizes the opportunity to appear cogent by echoing Rachel’s content.

  • BuckOfama2012

    Wow, Micah needs to start showing some cleaveage, wait pluck first, and then show some cleavage. They sure do have a lot liberal girly men on that show. I swear, they all look like they were on the chess team.

  • Tony

    Both Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O’Donnell beat Fox & Friends. Greta is doing well too.

  • Suikostinger

    WOW! How did I miss Michelle Bachmann claiming that Muslim Extremists have Infiltrated the US government…? What a NUT!!!

  • Suikostinger

    AHAHAHAHAHA” You can’t make this up people. Rush attacking the new Batman movie because the villians name is Bane….like Romneys company…so obviously it’s an anti-romney movie!!! AHHHHHHHHHAAAA


    Rush Limbaugh: ‘Dark Knight Rises’ villain Bane is an anti-Romney political conspiracy?

    Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? Bane. The villain in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ is named Bane, B-a-n-e. What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there’s now this make-believe controversy? Bain,” Limbaugh says on his show Tuesday (June 17). “The movie has been in the works for a long time. The release date’s been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious, fire-breathing four-eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bane?”

  • Suikostinger

    I really hope that Rush wasn’t serious….

  • betty

    Soooooo….”SUCK-LOWER” has taken to opining about “Meester Beeg” and we all know who that is ….”Suck-Lower”, you are not fit to dust off RUSH’s
    slippers !
