    BJM….Welcome and do come back again…Loved your comment and oh? Don’t pay attention to anything with two or three solid cap. letters here, just scroll right by, like the rest of the Libs/Dems always do.

    Coffee Steve wrote: “Some on this site have indicated that the video of Obama is just how things are done in a Black church…”

    I wonder whether they mean that Obama can be substituted for rev. Jeremiah Wright and it’s all the same.

    Good point. I do know this, there is a supposed video that the Hillary Campaign had they never released. Why, I don’t know, but we heard people begged her to release it 4 years ago, but I guess she thought it would do more harm than good for the public.

    Some MSM if you remember was building up big-time about a video she would release but when it came time, she decided not to.

    I’m like most people Apple; Rev Wright should not be the issue, but the associated statements and any public statements by the then Candidate Obama should be.

    If Jeff took American Airlines I hope he checked to see if his seat was attached :lol:

  • d.d.

    US GDP Rate Under Obama Lower Than Cuba and Pakistan

    The US GDP rate under Barack Obama is lower than the GDP rates of Cuba and Pakistan.


    GDP is the main measure of the health of the economy. 75 percent of the world in GDP growth. That means we’re well below Egypt, Mexico and Albania. Forget beating China, which is No. 10 while we’re No. 166 and falling, we need to start figuring out how to get ahead of our immediate rivals, Bosnia, Jamaica and Cuba.


    Did the White House order a cover-up over the murder of Libya’s US Ambassador?



    CNN: Obama Administration Involved in Libya Cover Up

    You know another thing that bothers me is the Administration citing an amateurish video as the cause over & over. They bear some responsibility for fanning the flames . This video was obscure, &, on You Tube for months before they pushed it , knowing it wasn’t responsible, , with the results, of inciting the whole Arab world.

    CNN: Obama Administration Involved in Libya Cover Up

    This should be the headlines along with the debate. The videos are distractions for both Romney and Obama.

    See you guys after class and church tonight. I am retiring from teaching after tonight as well, So I may cry in front of my class tonight :-(

    Have a great evening everyone, relax and get ready for the rumble tonight.

    1nancy2 says: “BJM….Welcome and do come back again…Loved your comment and oh? Don’t pay attention to anything with two or three solid cap. letters here, just scroll right by, like the rest of the Libs/Dems always do.”

    Stated another way: “Don’t listen to anything Obama actually says, just go to Media Matters to get the highlights, like the rest of the Libs/Dems always do.”

  • clinging to my guns and god

    o reilly slumping…when Richard and Larry reach three and a half million at 8 and another million and a half at 11…let us know…Fox number 3 of ALL cable, when MSNBC reaches # 2, let us know that one too…

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Lefties: You may want to print this post and keep it.

    I actually have a compliment for MSNBC and a beef against Fox News.

    I was up all last night and flicked the flatscreen around 6am. Fox & Friends just went into a break, so I tuned in MSNBC. THey actually reported on the Obama 2007 race speech and discussed it fairly! And, the Biden gaffe about the middle class being “buried” the past four years. So, I don’t anything much about the other MSNBC programs, but Joe Scarborough seems like a fair man.

    My beef with Fox News is a techinical one. On another occasion, I was up all night and watching the new “Early Fox & Friends” 5AM show. When it was time to read the headlines, there was a disco beat that was annoying to me anyway. This morning on the 6AM Fox & Friends, there was that disco beat during the sports brief that sounded like someone was pounding on my apartment wall. When I muted my flatscreen, the beat stopped. This kind of crap we used in radio back in the 1980’s to make sure the audience wasn’t BORED with a live read. So, Fox…cut out the disco beat and give the news to us straight.

    See? I’m a fair guy sometimes.

  • Hillbilly

    Just in time for the debate. He will need another option or two to satisfy the liberals. If he said this 3 months ago the left would find a way to spin it as hurting the middle class.


    On Tuesday, the former Massachusetts governor said one option he is considering is to limit federal income-tax deductions to $17,000 per household.

    Read more here.

  • Hillbilly

    AppleStinx – Those some probably believe that Obama walks on water. His stale farts are to them “breaths of fresh air”. ;)


    Must be the only air they are breathing. :lol:

  • Hillbilly

    Coffee Steve – And anyone can check, the Stafford Act was issued for New Orleans and has been issued for all major disasters since it’s conception. And as a Senator in 2007 he had to know that fact. That is dividing people.


    @S. Papa
    Did he just make that up?

    Coffee Steve – Yes he did. The act was wavied for New Orleans as well by then President Bush, in fact President Bush wavied many other regulations to speed up the process but the officials in NO screwed much up.


    Not trying to be mean (ornery maybe ;) ) you are contradicting yourself & confusing Sicilian Papa.

    As Moncon pointed out And again where are the questions to his lie in that video. If little ole me can look it up why can’t any reporters? At the least, the MSM should fact check what he said.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Darn right I’m confused, I read the Stafford act. I never thought I would ever say those words, I read the Stafford act. You haven’t lived until you have.

  • Hillbilly

    Coffee Steve was/is the confused one. I thought he heard a different tape than i did. Nobama misled (if i say lied the liberals will cry) the folks he was talking to. No way to spin that.
