  • Sicilian Papa

    That is what I meant weekly listeners. The most successful radio show in the history of the world!!!!!!

    Bar none

  • Mark2

    Palin??? Is she even relevant anymore?

    12 of the 16 backed Tea Party members lost in the elections.

    Ouch!!! that’s gotta hurt.

  • Ratboy

    What if all the wealthy decided to quit? you can get unemployment if you have assets, you can get food stamps if you have assets the only thing that has to be missing is income. So all the wealthy quit and we all rely on the working middle class. How long would we survive? Oh wait…….if that happened most of the working middle class would not have jobs and they too would be on food stamps and unemployment! Where WOULD the money come from?

  • Sicilian Papa


    Mark 2

    On one issue he has. That is been my position since I got here. Read my earlier post. It doesn’t mean I am liberal on other issues.

    I don’t think that position is liberal or conservative. Many conservatives have had that position.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Well you love to demonize conservatives. Her son is in a combat unit that saw action. You brought it up pal not me.

  • Mark2


    Rush, Hannity, Ingraham, Malkin, Coulter, O’Reilly, etc, all failed in getting a Republican candidate elected as President – twice!!!

    They completely failed in their goal of making sure Obama wasn’t elected and re-elected. If I were you, I’d be asking for a refund.

    To me, their relevance is dying out.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    Some reasons why the Republican party would be smart to not even consider Paul Ryan in 2016:

    1) John Edwards
    2) Joe Lieberman
    3) Al Gore
    4) Dan Quayle
    5) Walter Mondale
    6) Bob Dole
    7) Sargent Shriver
    8) Gerald Ford
    9) Edmund Muskie
    10) Hubert Humphrey

    Although this list shows a much greater trend of failed Democratic Vice Presidential candidates/ Vice Presidents who subsequently failed in their Presidential bids. I think it is fair to say this is a compelling trend that America hates a looser.

    ” Where WOULD the money come from?”

    Without consumers to purchase products, where would their profits come from? Blah blah blah. The wealthy aren’t going to ‘go Galt’ because of a 4% increase in their statutory rates. They’ll fight it tooth and nail, because they can afford to, and if they lose…so what? I’m perfectly fine, btw, with letting the Bush Tax cuts for people at all income levels expire, if what we’re truly going to prioritize is debt reduction, just be a little consistent here.

    Also, ‘tax reform’ and ‘closing loopholes’ are just tremendously cowardly ways of describing tax increases. If you’re increasing revenue, then someone, somewhere is getting a tax hike.

  • Mark2

    @SP “I don’t think that position is liberal or conservative. Many conservatives have had that position”

    Nice try buddy. But even you can’t rewrite history. The right wingers have been saying ’rounding them up’, ‘deporting all illegals’, ‘shoot’em on site’, ‘what part of illegal don’t you understand’, etc, for over 6 years now.

    But I’m glad you guys are finally evolving and accepting of our Liberal viewpoints. It’s better late than never.

  • Mark2

    Patraeus just Resigned!

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    -Is Palin on any level whatever even relevant. The only place I saw her on election night is on Greta and that is because her crazy scientologist husband helped as a Palin advisor.

    I think the results of the tea party backed candidates will give Boehner more ease to dismiss their support in coming to a deal with the President. They will quickly become as relevant as The Whig party.

  • Mark2

    No wonder why Romney didn’t pick him as the VP candidate.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)


    Gingrich in fact lost Republican primary voters because he dared to suggest a path to citizenship for illegals who have been here like 25 years or something.

    Are you smoking something CO voters correctly made legal?

  • Mark2


    Nice list.

    Also, Hillary Clinton and Chris Chritie are now leading in the 2016 New Hampshire Primary poll.

    Hey Jeffie please notice CBS not FOX

    No silly goose!!

    Romney was informed by Fox News all throughout the campaign cycle that he was going to win by a landslide, so therefore he was shell- shocked.

    CBS did report that, you are correct, my point is that Romney was misinformed the entire campaign by Fox News. You understood my statement.

  • Anthony Parello (AP076)

    Sean Hannity supporting a path to citizenship makes me think he has expanded the size of the gardens at his mansion and that in his racist heart and mind he thinks he will have more access to gardening staff.

  • Jeff

    @AP. don’t forget about Gingrich calling Ryan’s stupid voucher program the truth, by calling it right wing social engineering. Romney ran ads playing that comment and the righties were furious at him for saying that about Ryan’s stupid idea.

  • Jeff

    Fox News had a whole Benghazi scandal ready to run due to Pretreaus’s resignation. Turns out it was due to an extramarital affair the General apparently had.

    Sorry Fox News!

  • Sicilian Papa



    I posted Hannitys position today on this thread six months ago. I was not alone in my support of amnesty. Look at my post from earlier today. Gingrich was rejected because of to much baggage. That is the truth.

  • Ratboy

    Maybe thats where he was the night of the Bengazi attack!! :shock:
