    Obama stinks! Megyn Kelly is HOT! Give her the 10 PM show and finally, I hope Obama gets impeached.

  • Mark2


    You Loons on the right really don’t have a clue how things work behind the scenes. We have things called protocols and SOPs that we go by on a daily basis. If you ever worked in the positions that I have, you would have a better understanding as to how things really work. However, since you don’t it kind of leaves you in the ‘ignorant’ category.

  • Ralph Hahn


    >>> @ralph
    maybe joe and mark2 are the same? <<<

    How else can you explain it? How can two people be as equally stupid to be taken seriously?

  • HRJ

    Can’t we all just get along?

    Hello everyone. Please be advised that President Obama is president of all the people. We should be committed to helping POTUS to get this country moving in the right direction. Republicans; tell the Tea Party that it is over.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Ratboy: Funny. Mark2 is now passing himself off as a federal government employee “behind the scenes.” To me, he’s only as bright as your average adult waiting for the next comic-con to come to his city. lOL

    And, “WE’RE ignorant!” :) :) :) :) :)

  • Ratboy

    Obama killed Bin Laden……….single handedly but Petreius screwed up Bengazi!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol:

  • Ralph Hahn


    Can we all make some sense?

    I take it that the “we” you had written about was ALL of us helping POTUS. Then, why did you exclude members of the Tea Party? The various Tea Party groups got the Republican majority of the House in 2010 and added a few more GOP Reps. Romney wasn’t a traditional Tea Party member so I believe that the TP didn’t have it “All In” for Romney. If they had a more conservative candidate, like a Mike Huckabee, Obama would have been toast.

  • Hoppy


    “Can’t we all just get along?”


    Well since we are about evenly divided between right wing wackos and left wing loons, it seems rather doubtful.

  • Jeff

    Something about the name Hoppy that just makes me happy!!! :)


    Here’s more stupid Fox coverage from a rather stupid person.

    Megyn Kelly Cast “Swift Boat Controversy” As Credible To Argue Kerry Appointment Would Be Seen As “A Thumb In The Eye” By Military. On Fox’s America Live, host Megyn Kelly introduced a segment on Kerry’s possible nomination by highlighting the Swift Boat controversy and claiming that his nomination as Defense secretary could “be taken as some sort of a thumb in the eye by some who are actively serving us”:

  • Jeff

    Fox’s Doocy: Was Petraeus “Being Blackmailed By The White House To Toe The Company Line” On Benghazi?

    That’s a rather stupid question from a rather stupid person.

  • Ratboy

    Yep Kelly is stupid, doing the same job as DOCTOR Marrow! :shock:

  • Ratboy


  • AppleStinx

    The Lefty’s guide to war heroes: Sandra Fluke (war on women), Michelle Obama (war on chubbies)…

  • Ratboy

    Apple, don’t forget Obama’s putter and his war against 3 putts!

  • Eggmanbill

    Murdoch and his Mutants really have to focuses on something like March Madness, Little league World Series, Barnum and Baily Circus, important things like that. Their attempt to destroy President Obama and make sure he is a one term President FAILED, FAILED, FAILED. Their BS is really getting old,Fast & Furious nothing found, Solyndra scandal no scandal at all, Birth Certificate, No Good on that one. Obama is a Socialist Muslim or maybe the Anti Christ, not really believable, now Benghazi that story will be over shortly. General Petraeus???????? If you can’t support the President of The United States of America you are Anti-American. FOX is not a news channel it is a comedy channel with warped opinions and backers of looser. Time to switch the channel, their message is old and out dated, just like the GOP Party of Crazy Stupid that employees them as a propaganda machine, a bad one at that. The Murdoch No-News Corp. is like the GOP, DOA!!!!!!!

  • Mark2

    It’s funny how these are complaining about 4 American lives when over 9,500 Americans have died because of two Republican wars. By the way have you guys found those WMDs? Lol

  • Ratboy

    I will ask one more time, at what point do the clowns on the left STOP talking about the past and face the present?

  • TheBoss1

    The election is over.

    Get over it.

    And deal with it.

  • Mark2

    This is Ralph, SP, Ratboy…

    “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi, arrrggghhh!!!!!!

    LOL, You guys and Fox News tried playing the Benghazi card for 7 weeks before the election and you LOST!!! It’s like you guys don’t learn your lessons. People don’t care about Benghazi, they care about the economy.
