    @Phil, I have done the Nixon research, I have heard the tapes nothing there. Don’t know what you heard.

    Oh, the race card where would Obama supporters be without it?! Did you every think that the reason they are all under “attack” is because they are always putting their foot in their mouth. Besides the white members are under “attack” too. As far as Susan Rice goes, the administration made her the spokeswoman. You take responsibility for what you say when you willingly go out on every news show and use talking points to act like you are totally informed. When she was questioned about others saying it was a terrorist attack, she says that’s wrong. She’s a smart lady. She knew something was up when they asked her to do it. She has to testify and if she clears her name after she testifies then she is clear.
    Lastly, 93% of black people voted for a black man. What do you call that? It is racism. So, stop trying to use race card. We American people know who the true racist are in this country.

    @1966 “guess what obama wins 2 landside elections in 2008 and 2012.”

    Not according to Fox News and the Wingnuts. 2012 was a close race according to them.

  • cathy

    I wouldn’t call it a landslide either time. Personally, I think you need to be at 60 percent of the popular vote to be a landslide.

  • Mark2

    @Cathy “Lastly, 93% of black people voted for a black man. What do you call that? It is racism. So, stop trying to use race card.”

    They always vote Democratic you knucklehead.

  • Mark2

    Anytime you beat your opponent by 126 Electoral votes, it’s a landslide.

  • 1966

    fox might think it was close I just see it as a landslide I don’t think it was all that close.

  • 1966

    the media tried to make it close I think they could of called ohio an hour earlier. the media just wanted ratings imo.

  • Mark2

    @Bobby “Are you saying she knew Iraq did not have WMDs before we invaded?”

    Of course she did. The whole thing was fabricated to justify invading Iraq.

  • usnretiredx2

    Just popped in to say all heck is about to pop in the sand box. The one thing that will strike a match will be Obama not taking a stance with Israel or just try to sit this out and let that slip to the other bubbas.

  • Bobbyv


    There were an awful lot of people in this country and other countries in on that lie.

  • ninja

    Obama leads from behind never expect anything different. After 4 years why start now.

  • ninja

    Obama next plan is to have a beer summit at the white house.

  • Mark2

    Of Course Bobby, anytime oil is involved people are willing to say and do anything.

  • Try harder

    MSNBC ratings still in the tank.

    1. Nixon’s Watergate: Thank you for that excellent digression to the character of Nixon, as this almost causes me to forget all about how intensely the media and Congressional Oversight investigated an issue that seems so insignificant in hind sight. Oh, and in focusing on all the vile things you say Nixon said, I almost forgot he resigned over the issue. And per your advice, I now know to turn off that right wing radio and instead read liberal books to get my facts, because one is absolutely false and the other is absolute truth, just ask any liberal.

    2. Clinton’s Obstruction of Justice: Thank you for that excellent digression into the topic of sex, as this almost causes me to forget that if the Monica-Linda-Paula triangle hadn’t caused Clinton’s sexual relations to become public, it wouldn’t have become an issue, and if Clinton hadn’t lied under oath, there wouldn’t have been an impeachment. Oh yeah, as I pondered the more important issue of sex, I almost forgot that Clinton had a five-year suspension of his law license over the issue.

    3. Bush’s WMD: Thank you for not mentioning WMDs but instead providing a valuable prediction of how Bush will be viewed in historical context.

    4. Obama’s Benghazi: Thank you for the digression into the topic of racism, as this is almost never mentioned by people anymore, and I am only grateful to learn that ‘food stamps’ and ‘uban voters’ are now on a list of racial slurs. Thank you for informing me that I can now add ‘Benghazi’ to that list.

  • ninja

    @ Mark2 ………What % of money from oil in Iraq is the US getting?

  • ninja

    @ TZCA……………………..Nice!
