    Obama’s grandmother as “bank secretary”. Madelyn Dunham, the Obama
    matriarch whose home Barack Obama moved into full time by the time he was
    in 5th grade and where he would reside until graduating high school some
    eight years later, was far more than a mere “bank secretary” as described
    by Michelle Obama. Madelyn Dunham was in fact a bank vice president by the time
    young Barack moved into her home.

    BHO- Grandmother was Vice President of Bank. They were poor.Poor, part of the 1%

    @Doug Z

    The reason why some Muslims hate the US is because the US go to the Middle East and start putting their nose in affairs that have nothing to do with their country

    I can tell you never read the Quran. It is setting next to me now.

    Tingles is a deranged person. Never has the media seen this type of sycophant. He is extreme even for the lefties in the media. Last week he was calling people rascist for refering to Chicago.

    As oppose to the “two hours of darkness” any viewer experiences while viewing a Chuck Norris movie.


    I’m really enjoying MSNBC’s coverage but, I agree, Steve Schmidt on the panel is a real breath of fresh air. He’s a pretty keen observer and, more often than not, his opinions are right on the mark. Also, he and RM have this “agree to disagree” but with plenty of “mutual respect” thing going on that I find very refreshing. They should consider giving Steve his own show. He is much more aware than that snarky Scarborough and far more intelligent than bias ol’ BillO and bootlicker Han-NUTTY!

    Gates of Vienna. At the siege of Vienna in 1683 Islam seemed poised to overrun Christian Europe. We are in a new phase of a very old war.

    the Date of the defeat–9-11-1683

    Did you get that. 9-11-1683

    Did you get 9-11

    Schimdt is an inside the beltway Repub. If we listened to him we would get invited to all the lefty cocktail parties and never win an election.

  • Ratboy

    Sicilian Papa!! Dago Daddy!!! Garlic Bread Grandpa!!!! Glad you are back!!!!!!!! :)

  • Sicilian Papa

    I know you lefties like Schmidt and Repubs. like him. I would too if I were a liberal. They are electoral losers and have been for forty years.

    @Doug Z

    They had expensive tastes, reflected in the $277,500 two-bedroom condo they bought in 1993–a high price even by today’s standards.

    That explains in Michelle’s speech,,when she said,it was such a struggle when we started out our college debt payments were bigger than our mortgage payments..Don’t struggling young people with lot’s of school debt usually rent??What a load of crapola..

    I’m trying to bring some order to this place. I was at an undisclosed location with Dick Cheney. The conversation was good but he ain’t much to look at.

    Jerusalem And God Vote Gets Booed At Dem Convention

    Delegates and members of the Democratic party booed after former Gov. Ted Strickland (D-OH) discussed God and moved to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

    Convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, mayor of Los Angeles, had to ask for the Yea and Nay vote several times before declaring the motion passed.

    C-SPAN cameras captured the dissatisfaction among members after the motion passed.

    Democrats have changed their convention platform to add a mention of God and declare that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

    The move came after criticism from Republicans.

    Many in the audience booed after the convention chairman, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, ruled that the amendments had been approved despite the fact that a large group of delegates objected.

    He called for a vote three times before ruling.

    The party reinstated language from the 2008 platform that said “we need a government that stands up for the hopes, values and interests of working people and gives everyone willing to work hard the chance to make the most of their God-given potential.”

    The platform also now includes what advisers said was Obama’s personal views on Jerusalem.

    Obama’s Thursday Night Secret About Jobs.

    When President Barack Obama takes the stage Thursday night at the Democratic convention, he’ll probably know a secret about the economy that you don’t: the contents of Friday’s employment report. But don’t expect easy clues in his big speech.

  • Doug Z

    I can see you know nothing of history. I hate to use that strong a term. Blame the USA. Tell me Who Charles the Hammer was. You can cheat and look it up.

  • Sicilian Papa



    I saw Durbin lose it with Brett Biar about the God exclusion. The Maddow, O’Donnell, wing of the party is taking over and there is nothing the Dems can do about it.

    I also think that is what Obama truly believes. He is from the Maddow, O’Donnell wing of the party.

    Mark ,Do you know anything about the Quran
