    Sic papa–I got news for you. You nominated two conservatives –Robme and Ryan–and LOST…..

  • usa8888

    Sic Papa–always remember this: it’s the right wing people like you in the House who are holding back our recovery with their 6th Century ideas….

  • Sicilian Papa

    Unemployment at 7.9%. In a healthy economy that number should be 5%.

    When will O. and the left get the job. 10 Years, 20 Years?

    The 12th of never, and that’s a long long time.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Romney is a New England moderate. I live in Conn. I remember him as Gov. in Mass.

  • Sicilian Papa

    The right has little or no power. The ball is in your court.

    People,a majority, want the left in control but they got rid of Pelosi.

    Americans are not crazy. They knew San Fran Nan had to go.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Also you, on the left, control 90% of the media. That is a nice poodle to own.

    Propaganda is a powerful tool. How will the corrupt members of the Obama media blame Bush and the house Republicans for Obama’s mess? Don’t know yet, but it will be interesting and hey it may work!!!!!

    Panetta: Obama MIA Night Of Benghazi Attack…


    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified this morning on Capitol Hill that President Barack Obama was absent the night four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.



    I can’t think of anything more un-american or un-Christian than their daily rants against anything President Obama does.

    You are incorrect. I have a great deal of respect for the office of President & have corrected people on this blog for their lack of respect. I consider myself a productive American who worked in the healing profession, pay my taxes, do volunteer work, give to charity, &, never even had a traffic ticket. I am against most of president Obama’s policies, just like the Left was of Bush’s. This doesn’t make either side un-American, for we are blessed in this Country with the right to free speech .



  • usa8888

    Robme pushed pushed the absurd right wing philosophy and was supported by hundreds of millions of dollars of false advertising funded by the Koch Bros and Adelson…And Lian Ryan is about as radical right as you can get…and they STILL LOST…..comb back to me sic papa…

    not only;
    Panetta: Obama Absent Night of Benghazi…
    Panetta said that Obama left operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under seize, “up to us.”

    In fact, Panetta says that the night of 9/11, he did not communicate with a single person at the White House. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

    Panetta said that, save their 5 o’clock prescheduled meeting with the president the day of September 11, Obama did not call or communicate in anyway with the defense secretary that day. There were no calls about the what was going on in Benghazi. He never called to check-in.


    GENERAL: ‘We Never Received a Request for Support’…
    General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said the State Department never requested “support” in Benghazi:

    “Why didn’t you put forces in place to be ready to respond?,” Senator John McCain asked the general.

    Dempsey started, “Because we never received a request to do so, number one. And number two, we –”

    McCain iterrupted, “You never heard of Ambassador Stevens’s repeated warnings?”

    “I had, through General Ham,” responded Dempsey, referring to the commander of AFRICOM. “But we never received a request for support from the State Department, which would have allowed us to put forces–“

  • usa8888

    Yes, the right is responsible for all our economic woes…Bush’s trillion plus dollars of UNFUNDED debt (wars, drug program, and tax cuts)..then the economic crisis brought about by crooks in Wall Street investment banks, in the real estate industry (loans, loan appraisals) and made worse by the right fringe in the House who don’t understand basic economics–namely, you don’t cut spending in a bad recession. So, yes, sic papa and your friends–YOU are responsible for our woes!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • AppleStinx

    Regular gas is at $4.00/gal here (N. California).

  • usa8888

    Rat–you’ve got Obama, the king of terrost killers, in charge…and you and Fox Right Wing “News” are wasting our time on Lybia, just like fast and furious. The latter didn’t fly with sensible people and the former won’t either…

  • usa8888

    Gas is a dollar less than that where I am and apple isn’t even in the Bay Area…they probably shut down the refinery in Richmond.

  • 1966

    gas is 3.59 a gallon here.

  • Fluffy

    Anyone bashing fox news, take notice that fox’s ratings for the key “working age” demo drops off at 9pm… When its time for people with real jobs to turn off the tv and go to bed and wake up to work in the morning. Shockingly, MSNBC doesn’t have a “gotta work in the morning” demo drop-off.

  • Mikey O

    @1966 yes northern VA

  • Jeff

    @d.d. I am not saying opposing a President is Un-American. The celebrating of American businesses to fail, or people not to receive medical care/coverage, or happy unemployment is still high, or job creation is sluggish.

    You name it, the right is against it!!

    If Obama had started the Iraq War or same, I have no doubt the far right would of celebrated the embarrassing daily mishaps and even troop casualties. The moral standard among the neo cons is in the toilet.

    You have doubts??? Watch the 2012 GOP Primary debates and listen to the pigs in the audience boo a solider and chant “let them die” to the idea of sick uninsured Americans.

    Well Well Well the truth is REALLY coming out now!!!!!

    No Word from Hillary During Benghazi Attack

    Panetta, Dempsey did not speak to Clinton.

    Neither the secretary of defense nor the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff spoke to the secretary of state during the 8-hour attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. At a Thursday hearing in the Senate, Republican Ted Cruz asked both Leon Panetta and Martin Dempsey, “In between 9:42 p.m., Benghazi time, when the first attacks started, and 5:15 am, when Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods lost their lives, what converations did either of you have with Secretary Clinton?”

    “We did not have any conversations with Secretary Clinton,” Panetta responded.

    “And General Dempsey, the same is true for you?” Cruz asked. Dempsey confirmed this.
