    @Mark2 You are full of it when it comes to the BIG change in the GOP, that it’s to far right. Every party has a few idiots. The liberal press keeps pointing out the same person over and over. Republican wouldn’t accept Reagan today. :lol: That’s the funniest thing that I’ve read in a month. You were joking, right?

    LOL at Jon Steward turning you into a liberal.

    Food stamps are the smallest part of entitlement programs and republican are not looking at changing them. They talk about them to show how back things are in our country today.

  • Hillbilly

    Bill O only cable news show on the list.

    Seeing that cable news don’t compete for the 18-48 demo that’s news worth reporting. :cool:

    @DougZ “$85 Billion…”

    Is that all? We spend over $900 Billion on Sefense Spending…ouch!!! That’s 10 times as much as your 85 Billion.

    We need to cut spending starting with Defense. I say we cut it by 50% and save over $450 Billion annually.


    That’s $85 billion a month. 85 x 12 = 1,020. So over $1 trillion.

    That’s more than we spend on defense…ouch!

  • Hillbilly

    Mark2 – Even Reagan wouldn’t be accepted in today’s GOP.


    Bill Clinton wouldn’t be accepted in the D party today. Bill was POTUS more recent than Reagan. So which party has moved further to the extreme faster? Willard was a mushy moderate trying to be a conservative. He didn’t really believe in what he was rambling about & it showed.

    Bill C reduced spending, reformed welfare, signed DOMA, went to war in Bosnia, signed NAFTA & cut the cap gains tax. Bill is a right wing knuckle dragger. :lol:

    Sounds like a conservative Republican to me. I’d argue Newt pushed Clinton to the right. If Newt had more self control who would have wiped the floor with Nobama. Willard’s money advantage & Newt’s tendency to bloviate doomed him. JMO

    Rachel Maddow Show & Last Word W/ L. ODONNELL forgot to pay their viewers….LOL…

    @Bill Clinton wouldn’t be accepted in the D party today


    As Hillary said in one of her last statements as out going Secretary of State.

    That means you two $hit4brains!!

    Phil did not see his shadow. Six more weeks of winter. Phil is as accurate as any weather man here in New England!

    MSNBC doctored a video? I am shocked!

  • Chriscee

    Here is a definition of how the liberal mind works…

    Mark has 10 marbles. He drops them all. But he only finds 3. So now Mark thinks because he found 3….he now has 13 marbles.

    Yep that’s the liberal math for you.

  • usa8888

    Mark2 is exactly right about the GOP being taken over by right wing fringe–Reagan would not recognize it. AND the main GOP strategists say the same thing–in fact, if the GOP doesn’t change, it will NEVER win another election.

    You are right, the GOP is to liberal in their spending and need to get off moral issues. We can not spend have a spending more than we make of over 1.6 trillion a year

    Here’s the good news: the backward thinking right wing fringe is incapable of changing their 6th Century ideas…but this a GOOD THING…because it means that the dems will stay in power for DECADES to come.

  • usa8888

    The 6th Century religious fanatics (evangelicals and Catholics, and other, too) are against birth control so they are raising a big stink tieh Obamacare. Hobby Lobby and its religious fanatic owner in Oklahoma want to deny their employees coverage because they (Hobby Lobby) are caught in a 6th Century time warp. Can you imagines such a thing in the 21st Century???

  • usa8888

    Well, the number of priests cited for molestation has grwon to 4000 over the past few decades and 10000 kids (mostly boys) being their victims. The latest problem is in LA. Houston, we have a problem….

  • RedBarSoup

    This to all the Fox News hosts and Fox News watchers that said Obama was lying that he skeet shooted and that he was only pandering to the Gun activists. That includes you Glenn Beck, the guy that made a 10 minute video and facebook page calling Obama out.
