    That’s like saying “but the Red Sux scored more runs in beating their opponent then the Yankees scored in their win .”
    Two different time slots Tony.

    How do you know Maddow “has a fat hairy a$$ b?”I don’t care for Maddow and her views ,but your post show your ignorance. b,did the baby sitter walk out of the room and you had a few moments to come up with that brilliant post?

    The ‘Mr Maddow’ jab makes you look as ignorant as b.
    I guess b has the ‘best a$$’in the world without a hair on his a$$. Hey BuckOfama,can’t you tell the different between a male and a female ? Maddow may swing that way, but that’s her business.

  • Suikostinger


    It’s not use for those two, we just ignore them.

  • Ratboy

    what a pandering joke!! I guess the rest of the kids dont count…………………………..unless he needs their parents vote :shock: (by the way it is by another one of his “ececutive orders”)

    Obama creating African-American education office

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is creating a new office to bolster education of African-American students.

    The White House says the office will coordinate the work of communities and federal agencies to ensure that African-American youngsters are better prepared for high school, college and career.

    Obama is announcing his election-year initiative Wednesday night in a speech to the civil rights group the National Urban League as he seeks to rally black voters. Aides say his executive order, to be signed Thursday, will set a goal of producing “a more effective continuum” of programs for African-American students.

    Tired of Morning Joe (a 3 hour Barack Obama Re-Election Commercial), don’t like the personalities on Fox & Friends…so tuned in to Imus on Fox Business Channel…a good alternative with your morning wake-up coffee.

  • lbsles

    I’m no good at singing “Happy Birthday.”

    I hope you’re better, because the President’s inviting two grassroots donors and their guests to celebrate his birthday with him at his home in Chicago on August 12th.

    Just pitch in $3 or whatever you can to support this campaign, and you’ll be automatically entered for the chance to be there.

    It’s going to be a great party.

    We’ve got a nice spot picked out for the event at the President’s family home in their beautiful South Side neighborhood.

    What we’re missing is a few lucky supporters like you to come and wish the President well as we celebrate him for the night.

    Sounds fun, right? The contest ends tomorrow, so enter today:

    “Its not use for those two, we just ignore them.”

    Suiko strikes again with another brilliant post that makes no sense. Doesn’t matter though because he will just deny having said what he just said.

    How did Ed at 11pm beat himself at 8pm in the key demo?

  • Suikostinger


    Hi Ratboy the guy that name called so much an admin called you out.

    From: The Dip Stick :)

  • Ratboy

    hey DB, did you hear something??

  • Suikostinger

    Ratboy, all you have to do is just completely ignore me just like you do with everyone else that proves you wrong after one of your rat rants….then come back 2 hours later with another copy and paste. :)

    How in the heck ya been Sam? Good to se your still around

    **Greece runs out of Money August 20th.

    *** Coffee Steve runs out of money August 31, 2050 so I better die before then :-)

    You posted that the Senate turned down the tax extension?

    Did you know that the Senate can’t even start any tax bill? Constitution says all Tax laws have to start in the House.

    I thought the silly Senators would have known that huh? :lol:

  • AppleStinx

    @Coffee Steve

    That’s our Senate being proactive… only when it doesn’t matter. It’s amazing how some politicians don’t have a clue about being quickly exposed in this day and age.

  • Coffee Steve


    It’s all come down to a show anymore Apple, and that’s a shame.

  • Coffee Steve

    Oh Oh!

    Latest Poll Shows McCaskill Behind All GOP Primary Contenders in Missouri

    Ed Schultz and Rachel Maddow have been out all week. Lawrence has been on a roll. OFF THE CLIFF, baby! Let’s go.

  • TheBoss1

    Rave on, Randy. b exemplifies everything that is wrong about our political discourse these days. Well, he’s not alone. betty is right there with him polluting cyberspace with her dreck.

  • TheBoss1

    Lawrence O’Donnell has a gleam in his eye when he talks about Mitt Romney. It’s almost as if he’s saying, “You can’t make this stuff up. This is too easy.”
