    “Joe Biden is the poster boy for the Moron Vote. The more I think about it, the more I think they’re sending Biden out to act and be stupid purposely, to relate to the people they’re trying to get to vote for ‘em.” -Rush Limbaugh

    Rasmussen Reports McCaskill 48, Akin 38 McCaskill +10

    Wasn’t this race like +1 Akin(by same polling group) a few days ago? I wonder if Rasmussen is trying to send a message to Akin to get out of the race. lol

    Can the Country Survive Four More Years?

    RUSH: The American people, as you and I have known them to be anyway, are resilient, and we can overcome whatever obstacles are put in our way. What we can’t overcome is a country made up of losers, morons, and takers that would elect a guy like Obama. My point is that the problem really isn’t Obama; it’s the people that vote for him. That’s what we have to change. Those are the people we have to get to somehow. If this nation’s gonna rebuild itself, it’s gonna take more than 40% of the people working.

    D’Souza Film Success Shocks Hollywood

    RUSH: Here’s the story from the Hollywood Reporter, shocked. The Hollywood Reporter is shocked that an anti-Obama movie is doing so well in New York. It is already the number two grossing documentary of the year. It’s titled: 2016: Obama’s America. It’s the Dinesh D’Souza movie. We have spoken of it frequently on this program, an anti-Obama documentary.

    Box Office Report: Anti-Obama Doc Drawing Big Crowds, Even in New York City

    Already the No. 2-grossing non-nature documentary of the year, “2016: Obama’s America” expands nationwide this weekend.

    Obama’s America intends to show how the country’s future will look if President Obama is elected to a second term in the White House and includes an interview with the president’s half brother, George Obama.

    “I think the reason why the film is doing so well is threefold: We’ve expanded into good markets, we’ve been advertising nationally for two weeks on talk radio and television news channels including Fox News Channel, A&E, History and MSNBC,” Sullivan told The Hollywood Reporter.

    Obama’s America also is doing big business in cities including Sacramento, Dallas, San Antonio, Las Vegas, Honolulu, Greenville, N.C., and Tampa, Fla.

    @ratboy, Re:Paul Ryan the idiot on Kudlow, it’s called being asked a specific question and getting specific answer. Which he failed to do througout the entire interview. For a guy that is “the numbers man” he really does not know much about the Romney or Ryan plan. Then again, he is a Republican and math and science is not a strong point.

    Seems in your Fox infected microbrain way you try to hold me to answering standard (while failing immensely on your own) but give your nominee a pass. I’m still waiting for your sources on the polling data you conjured up yesterday, it is no where on the site.

    Since you seem to struggle these days with technology, let me explain, The iPad is NOT something a woman puts on her Xbox as you thought it was……..The iPad is a amazing device created by Apple, used for many purposes, however Apple is way behind in the licensing department. So it makes it difficult to view many sites and videos. Given your boring questions and my ability while mobile to comment in here. I viewed the site and the full webiste was not displaying the info you claimed to have c/p. So I thought it may have been my iPad, but it seems it was just more of your “BS.” So keep making your silly rude remarks and excuses. It’s clear I’ve gotten under your skin, that’s not my problem. Take a pill!

    I think it’s called trying to avoid the topic. On one hand I don’t blame him all politicians do it, on the other hand it’s hard taking the campaign seriously when they try claim they want to discuss the issues openly.

    I think the Republicans stance on abrtion is a case(for most) they just want to please the christian right so they give them lip service, but in all reality they won’t do what they promise because they know it will turn off alot of moderates(for argument sake both sides are guilty of promoting an agenda that they won’t actually do anything about when in power, in the case of Obama I fully expected him to be tougher on banks, cutting military spending and while I personally don’t care about this issue I assume some expected him to be tougher on gun laws. He basically has done little or nothing on all of these and in many cases(military and gun laws) it’s worse now then before he was in office)

    Jeff you have surpassed yourself! I in fact was the one yesterday that showed the source of the Rasnusen poll that was current and showing McMahon leading, I an the one that posted the beginning of the article with the date and author AND the link to the article showing the outdated poll numbers you posted. You were the one that said your source posted the current date but when I point out that there was no new poll on Quinnipac and then asked for the link that you got your info from YOU said your IPad was not playing well or some stupid thing and never posted your source BUT…..you did manage to call me a douche bag!
    Now you cant back up why you claim Ryan is an idiot by what he said in an interveiw.
    You have manage to stoop back to tje low gutter level of name calling and idiot crap. So you go have a great time making a complete fool out of yourself but I am don with you and your posts. Post away pal You are on your own. Come back when you can fill the big boy pants that you mommy hung in your closet!

    speaking of avoiding issues

    I can’t post the link since all of them have the word “abrtion” in it but basically go to google news and type in “romney abrtion” and you will see many articles about this

    “I had about five minutes with him and we got through a fair amount of material, actually, in that five minutes. The one stipulation to the interview was that I not ask him about abrtion or Todd Akin — he’s the Missouri Republican who created a firestorm after saying that women’s bodies shut down in a legitimate rape to prevent pregnancy.”

    to be honest I can see avoiding Akin questions, but I do think abrtion should be on the table since it is an issue some people care about and would like to here his stance on it

    Make sure to watch the one hour special (smear campaign) on the mormon church to tonite on NBC. How nice of them.

    I actually wrote Brian Williams and ask him to notify me when NBC was going to do a one hour special on Obama’s Church of 20 years, I haven’t heard back yet hmmm…

    Should be interesting to see what path Rock Center takes. The Mormon church has done alot of good things and some bad stuff as well. Hopefully they can be fair and highlight both.

    I wonder how much will be focused on theology, I don’t think many christians have a clue how much different mormonism is to christianity but would be surprised in some of the differences. I also wonder if they will show the history of the America’s according to the Mormon church.

    I think FOX news has spent enough time telling us about Rev Wright over the past 4 years(and to be perfectly honest I don’t care, frankenbiting a commnet Wright made taken completely out of context doesn’t really change my mind about Obama). lol

    by the way i went to youtube

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hwQWuQVE6sw <- there is your mainstream media covering it

    I should probably add I 100% agree with Rev Wright about the drug issue(what a crappy system we have when it comes to drugs) when he made his comment. Sadly Obama doesn't

    I think the problem with the what belief a person have is unless somebody is heavily into their religion(which is more of a republican thing) what belief system somebody has is not a big deciding factor in how they vote.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Bishop
    Think Harry Reid will be proud

    LOL, I bet he isn’t even mentioned in it

  • Coffee Steve

    @Mark

    Actually I was against bringing Rev Wright into the discussion 4 years ago.

    But the MSM claims to be the source to go to for news, and they garner millions more than cable news. And as a memeber (former) member of the press media, I will say, this is simply a smear broadcast from any network who does this and why 82% of the public finds the media disgusting.

    Only 18% trust the media, which is an all time low, and trust me, the more they do this and keep their noses brown, the more people will tune out.

    Just reported the other day, broadcast news (MSM) has lost 25% viewership in the past 7 years. I wonder why :-)
