    hannity destroys rachel!!!

  • b

    OH GOOD LORD ! …they really have to pull the plug on that poor, pathetic, MSNBC….

  • Raz

    Nice that Hannity did better. Greta, well, Miss Greta you need to do better.

    Hope the flu fairy dosn’t find you but the best of the New Year does.

  • usa8888

    Fox Cable ratings continue to slide and MSNBC’s are rising steadily. Msnbc nows owns the demo and beats Hannity and Van Sustern. Billo hangs on with a very old audience….

    This just in: Right wingers in the House reject fiscal cliff agreement that moderate Repubs and Dems support. So the right wingers will be given the chance to vote against the middle class tax cuts after the new year, thus increasing their chances of losing even more right wing seats in the House than they lost this year.

    One right winger who was defeated this November said a few minutes ago on CNN that he wants to roll back all the government programs created in the 30?s and 50?s (Social Sevurity and Medicare)–this guy is too dumb to relize that is why he was was not re-elceted. People love these programs and they are working very well–have for decades, but the radical right wing has no compassion for common people and no knowledge of economics, and doesn’t get it…….

    lol@usa

  • Faith3

    Cathy, I replied to you on Thursday’s thread.I didn’t realize a new page was opened.

    Everyone have a great New Year!

  • Snap Tie

    MORE TAXES AND NO REDUCTION IN SPENDING…A Socialist Democratic mantra!

  • 1966

    you to faith3

  • AppleStinx

    Let’s go to Hillbilly’s place for the New Year. 1966′s mansion is going to be just too cold today.

  • usa8888

    To all the right wingers who have little education and no knowledge of economics and are incapable of intuitive deductions: you don’t drastically cut spending in a bad recession–that’s a recipe for economic collapse and disaster!!!!!!!!!!
    And, if you have half a brain (unlike Lian Ryan), you don’t advocate eliminating Social Securtiy and Medicare!!!!!!!!!

  • Dave

    I would like to wish the people on FOX,Allen West,Hannity ,John Bolden and many others who said the Sec.Of State was faking an illness a New Year of one tragedy after another.These people are the scum of the earth.

  • Mark

    @1966

    Hannity actually beat Ezra Kline, Rachel had the week off

  • 1966

    @mark
    will you reprt the same thing when hannitys off?

  • CNN WTF

    Did CNN have fill-in hosts? Wow, they were often beat by HLN.

  • Mark

    @1966

    Probably not since I don’t watch Hannity but if I know a host is off I will chip in saying that(I have a few times for O’Reilly when I knew he was off and his ratings seemed low for him)

  • 1nancy2

    Dave,
    I agree. I can’t believe the nasty comments these people come up with…They wanted a Dr.’s note to prove to them that Hillary was really, really, really in bed with a concussion. Jerks.

  • 1966

    @dave
    how sad.

  • Coffee Steve

    *****HAPPY NEW YEAR***** Everyone

  • UpAndOver

    If we had a ‘Liars Jar’ for the democrats we would not need a tax increase…

  • usa8888

    Fox Cable ratings have been in decline for 3 months now–their trend is DOWNWARD and MSNBC’s ratings are the highest they have ever been. Rupert and Roger have got to be concerned, though FOX will continue to make lots of money off suckers for some time to come………..
