    Boo Boo was 5th and Obozo the clown’s SOTU will be about 50th. I won’t be watching, but I’m sure some of you will be watching that Clown lie and tell you the State of the Union is great. Actually I’m not sure if Obozo is going to telepromterize that the state of the union is good. I think he may try to push for more taxes and more spending and blame all of the bad things on Bush, Fox, ATM’s Japan, Arab Spring, BP blah blah blah…Blamer knows the economy like an Orangutan knows Insurance.

  • Doug Z

    How in the hell does CNN get 458,000 people to view their channel? Come to think of it, Obama was re-elected so I guess they’re out there.

    The best version I have heard

  • AppleStinx

    Will she be singing to President Obama in the joint before the State of Union Address? Nah, Dame Shirley Bassey to make her first appearance on an Oscar® show.

    FOX News is as fear and balance as the 5 no wonder its ratings are down, no wait it’s Obamas and the democrats fault…

    A State of the Union preview: Everybody is going to have everything they want, and the rich people are going to pay for it unless they qualify for an exemption as a government official.

    @A State of the Union preview: Everybody is going to have everything they want, and the rich people are going to pay for it unless they qualify for an exemption as a government official.

    I guess everyone is happy and all “rich people” are government officials.

    Koo! Koo!

    Fox’s ratings continue to drop as they attract more and more elderly and corner the market on the Lawrence Welk crowd.

    Bing Pulse launching with help from Fox News, aims to make State of the Union speech more interactive

    Just in time for next week’s State of the Union address, Bing announced it’s teamed up with Fox News to launch Bing Pulse, a one-stop hub where folks can easily interact and share their thoughts with one another while President Barack Obama’s speech is taking place.

  • Jeff

    Funny all the Lawrence Welk folks I know love President Obama, know Fox is a horrible organization……..

    What did Karl Rove cal em????


    Crazies and Kranks..

  • Sicilian Papa


    All lefties

    In a moment of candor the White House admits they are strongly considering a national sales tax to pay for Obama’s out of control spending.

    A HUGE TAX ON EVERYONE! GAME, SET, MATCH LEFTIES. We on the right the right told you.

    Get ready for the GOP sweep!!!!!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    When you say MSNBC?

    Think…Doo Doo bird…horse and buggy…analog TV…all things that are not here anymore.

    How long can this dog with fleas hold on. Big daddy NBC Universal can keep them going but they hit their high point with O. After the collapse of O’s leftest economy that will spell the end of the Madly Sycophantic National Barrack Channel.

    They may as well bring back Phil Donahue!
