    Hannity is a fraud even the righties are starting to realize that. He is a sinking ship. Meanwhile Maddow ( the most intelligent pundit on TV ) is on fire !

  • ninja

    Maddow is on FIRE! That had to hurt. LOL………………Mark2 you are at best a pecker nat. Get the idea yet? I doubt it.

  • Bobbyv

    Mark, like your honesty

  • Mark2

    Here’s just a couple of predictions from Republicans, starting with Newt. But my favorite is Brit Hume’s disbelief of the polls at the very end of the video.

  • Mark2


    Quit acting like Ratboy. There’s your video.

  • Mark


    I am the type of voter the Republicans should be after.

    ie I might not be 100% sold on the Democrats but given the alternate they look great by comparison. There is so many ways somebody could easily attack the Democrats but in general in most those cases the Republicans are just as bad and more likely worse.

    I am basically a 2 issue voter

    1. Defense – both sides suck to be honest but this is one of those cases there is a huge difference in how much they suck, that it makes the Democrats look attractive by comparison. Republicans completely lose me when they go into beat their chest mode. Republicans talk a good game when it comes to being fiscally conservative(which if they actually were I might be more open to voting for them) but until they say we need defense cuts I call BS

    2. Social Issues – I don’t need government telling me how to live. I am not even gay and I think ab0rtion is wrong but I don’t believe I should force my opinion on others. In this case I find the Democrats talk a good game but are average at best when it comes to implementing things(especially my big issues). Republicans once again are piss poor on this.

  • Mark2

    This is the way I look at things:

    Don’t like Pot? Then don’t smoke it.
    Don’t like Alcohol? Then don’t drink it.
    Don’t like Ab/ortions? Then don’t get one.
    Don’t like g/ay marriage? Then don’t marry one.
    Don’t like the military? Then don’t join.
    Don’t like like Guns? Then don’t buy one.
    Don’t like birth control? Then don’t take any.
    Don’t like like sex? Then don’t have it.
    Don’t like what America is becoming? Then vote or move.
    Don’t like having YOUR rights taken away? Then don’t take other people’s rights away!

  • Bobbyv


    Fair enough. I am in a similar position in that I could be persuaded to vote either way. I think if the R’s practiced what they preached as far as spending they would gain voters such as yourself, but the problem is that people have not been convinced the debt is a problem so anyone who makes the tough cuts that are needed is going to be classified as heartless (and they are already called this every minute as it is). It is going to take some kind of an economic disaster for this to change. Socially I am pro choice but do not like the way the fringe left wants ab0rtion on demand and the ability to take a 12 year old to get one without their parents knowing. In my opinion Roe will never get overturned no matter who is on the Court.

  • Bobbyv


    Playing Devil’s Advocate, I want to drive 155mph, is my right to do this being taken away?

  • Mark2


    You have a right to do whatever you want just as long as you’re willing to pay the consequences if you break the law.

  • 1966

  • 1966

    the video is for you mark2

  • ninja

    This is the way I look at things.

    Don’t like to drink water?Then don’t drink water.

    Don’t like to eat food? Don’t eat food.

    Don’t like to breath air? Don’t breath air.

    Don’t like to pee? Don’t pee

    Don’t like to poop? Don’t poop

    That’s all I got to say about that.

  • TZCA

    Just came in from fixing the ladder on my RV and I’m reading about not marrying a gay and holding my poop. lmao

  • Mark2


    That was brilliant – NOT!!!!

  • Mark2


    This video is for you:

  • Mark2

    ^Especially at the 1:00 mark

  • Mark2

    Later Gators

  • TheBoss1

    People have awoken. They realize that Fox News is propaganda for the Right. Rachel Maddow is kicking Sean Hannity’s ass right now. Hate may win in the short-term, Sean, but it never wins out in the end.

  • mike

    Maddow the angry man will end up on nbc,major networks love cable losers that dont get ratings!!!!!
