    And yet it is law of the land and deservedly will remain so!!!!

  • Ratboy

    Ya see here is the way it is, A leader takes questions and accepts input and critisism not just talkin and walkin away!

    Speaker John Boehner delivered remarks and took questions from press on Friday, ahead of President Barack Obama‘s scheduled remarks on the economy

  • d.d.


    As I munch on a cookie…

    Thank you.

    I feel you are selling your potential short , but, I’m glad you have friends . I was concerned about that. There are individuals who use threads like this in place of people.


    Gone for the day.

    Yes Rove did not want to give up on Ohio. Really, so what. We get it, we lost.

    As for the success of a forth network news broadcast being delusional. Look all the people that have dared to dream.

    They told Limbaugh his show would never make it at noon on am radio. Twenty years and 25 million listeners later.

    They also said the same thing about FOX hugely successful.

    There is opening for this nearly 55% of the people find the media to be biased towards the left.

    I don’t blame you and I don’t take offense at your insults. Many visionaries have been called far worse than delusional.

    I have been called it so many times here that I wear it with a badge of honor.

  • Mark2


    We did very well as a Country when taxes were high, the record proves it. And for the last 10 years our taxes have been low and we have nothing to show for it.

    Since the Bush tax cuts went into effect, our National Debt has increased by
    $10 Trillion. And yet, you guys still want low tax rates.

    You Republicans are afraid of math or something. Even the CBO came out and said that tax hikes for the rich will NOT kill growth.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Just because it’s legal don’t make it right!

    Cold, heartless, brutal, godless, soulless, ghoulish

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    Reports from Massachusetts (The Globe and NBC)

    -Romney not only lost most of his home states and his main home state of Massachusetts but he managed to loose his home town of Belmont, MA by 65% Obama and 34% Romney, how humiliating. Belmont where a fair few of the MA 1% reside and probably less of the 47% than in most cities and towns in the Commonwealth.

    -The Romney campaign had to return $25,000.00 worth of fireworks for “the celebration”.

    -Romney campaign aides who tried to pay for the cab ride home from the concession speech, with campaign credit cards, found that their cards had already been cancelled by the Romney administration.

    My personal favorite that made me happy was the camera set up at Faneuil Hall ostensibly to even out the Chicago coverage of hometown son Obama with hometown coverage for Romney. The only problem is Romney could not get over 40% of his home states’ votes and the camera became a celebrate Obama camera as expected.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    Except none of your supposed claims about a forth broadcast network (even though there are already 5 were in the least accurate.

    @Sicilian Papa
    We have had nearly four years of total Dem control and we have amassed nearly 6 trillion in additional debt.

    Over half of the National debt happened under a Republican watch, while it’s easy to blame Obama let’s look at the makeup of that debt

    900B – interest on debt
    750B – Stimulus that had to be created due to bad policies of the previous 8 years
    (I am just estimating this but) 600B – 2 Bush Wars

    All that being said the only president that the Debt didn’t increase much was Clinton, other then him Reagen, Both Bushes and Obama the Debt has increased big time, although more then half of the 16T happened under a Republicans watch

    Who is delusional now! Come on man, The country takes in 2.3 trillion and liberalism can’t survive on that.

    Government really is your God.

    Like I say raise taxes 800 billion a year for the next four years and you are still coming up 600 billion short.

    O. is bankrupting the country and you just can’t face it.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Tell me what you are going to now!!! Nothing you got nothing!!!!

    Don’t relive the past. What is the liberal plan. Set it in motion in Washington and if House Repubs reject it vote them out. Pelosi, Reid and O. can fix the problem and the people will be grateful.

  • Mark2

    @SP “They told Limbaugh his show would never make it at noon on am radio. Twenty years and 25 million listeners later.”

    25 Million??? LOL, where did you get that number from?

    Just so you have a better understanding on how the weekly numbers work for radio programs. Weekly numbers don’t equal unique listeners. In other words, if you have 20 million weekly listeners, that’s more like 5 million unique (the same) listeners tuning in everyday.

  • Mark2


    If it weren’t for Liberals, this Country wouldn’t have made it this far.

  • Mark


    I am just pointing out how it’s BS that the Republicans are any better with Deficit(and “less Big Government) then the Democrats if you go by how stuff has been since Reagan was in power. Both sides have different ways they like to increase government control and waste money. Call me funny I much rather have money being used to help actually people or infrastructure then building 2 new ships.

  • Mark2

    Anothe Biden son joins the military. I’m still waiting for one of Romney’s 5 sons to join, lol.

  • Mark2


    Also, I found out that Ted Nugent was a Draft Dodger.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Are going to need another eight years after that. When does it become you responsibility? When!

    When do you stop blaming the past???!!!!

    so if it was so good with high rates then EVERYBODY pays more! It is everybodys country so it is everybodys problen so EVERYBODY pays……… RIGHT???? the cuts were for everybody and they didnt work so everybody needs to pony up!…….. Right?

    Palin’s son fought in a combat unit!!!!!

    It looks like Sean Hannity has evolved. He’s becoming a Liberal, lol. This is what he said on his radio show:

    “We’ve gotta get rid of the immigration issue altogether. It’s simple for me to fix it. I think you control the border first, you create a pathway for those people that are here, you don’t say you gotta home. And that is a position that I’ve evolved on. Because you know what–it just–it’s gotta be resolved. The majority of people here–if some people have criminal records you can send’ em home–but if people are here, law-abiding, participating, four years, their kids are born here… first secure the border, pathway to citizenship… then it’s done. But you can’t let the problem continue. It’s gotta stop.”

    It looks like the country is moving Center-Left.
