    No excuse now for the lies.

    Problem is Pravda I mean our Media will not do their jobs anymore.

    But the king said just yesterday that Bengazi was just a campaign thing and that congress is running out of questions to ask!
    No Sh#$ they have aske almost all the questions, they just cant get the ANSWERS!!!!

  • Cathy

    1nancy2 $ others, Blame Hagel for the delay. The congress asked him to answer a few more questions weeks ago and he is refusing. If they is nothing to Benghazi then answer the questions. Also they want to know if Hagel supports killing of Americans on american soil with drones. Why is Hagel refusing to answer? The President and his administration have limited power and have to answer for their actions.
    Can’t you see the BS for the Obama camp ever? So, you think Hagel can refuse to answer questions, do whatever he wants and Congress should just confirm him?
    Republican had told Reid, Hagel and the White House weeks ago that they wanted Hagel to answer these questions or they will not confirm him.

    Headline Detroit…. Proof that assault weapons are needed for self defense. Three men armed with handguns break into a H&R Block to steal the thousands in cash for fast pay taxes. The men flee the shop when the own appears with an AR-15. Detroit reporter’s tag line: “How do you stop a robber with a gun? Have a bigger gun!

    Bsotgnw, Neilson and TV Executives may not be. I know that Marketing executives are looking at the ratings in a different light. The TV Executives can set the price based on key demo numbers. But the marketing executives decide what price they are willing to pay and where they want to advertise.

    Exactly what I was thinking: call Bruce Willis… :lol: It was said that a small change in velocity is enough to alter the course of an asteroid, and an encounter with a satellite could provide the little nudge. Well, the path of this asteroid will, at some point, be at an altitude lower than that of orbiting satellites. Forget losing directtv from a collision.

  • Coffee Steve

    The Bengazi story will never be pursued by this media; the only ones they will ever hold accountable are those elected officials that go against their own agenda. Folks we have passed that point of a fair and un-biased press. It no longer exists.

    The constitution gave us a free press yet it never said they had free reign to hold back information or simply make up stories or pass rumors. They feared the impact of the Internet and thought they could simply sensationalize stories to compete. Basically they gave up reporting truth to try and control your minds. Sadly in most cases it has worked for them.

    Hey Rat and other right wingers–look at it this way: you will never win another election again so you better get used the dems progressive, sensible policies. You can hold you absurd thinking to yourselves, but thankfully, it will not influence Americans any more…. That’s a GOOD thing!!!

  • Ratboy

    Idiot Alert! the loons are back on the lake!

    …and Marco Rubio for reaching for a bottle of water during a televised speech. :wink:

    Obama pushes universal preschool proposal…..

    If you think the democrats are the ones to run/control your life, think again…

    Democrat controlled urban crime centers are not something you should admire…

    Major cities are all controlled by democrats, Dallas, Chicago, Los Angeles,
    Memphis, New Orleans, Houston, El Paso, Atlanta and Miami and on and on…

    As for the liberals that say ‘The Red States’ get more welfare than ‘Blue States’…

    The fact is, on average, 82% of all welfare in the Red States go to the democrat
    controlled crime centers…

    If obama wants a baby sitting service why doesn’t he just say that….

  • Cathy

    @Mark2, Do you have a link to show the CBS final number besides RCP because the CBS site I found had their last rating of Bush at 35%.
    That’s what I mean by I don’t have time to site Clear politics data. For not being a liberal site, they lean to the left a lot.

    I’m surprised how many people were posting on here last night.

    Unintented consequences

    As a result we have halted sales of rifles, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns, machine guns, and silencers to New York governmental agencies.

    •Refund your payment in full.
    •Hold your items here for up to 6 months, at no charge – if you are in the process of leaving NY and taking residence in another state.

    Pre-school is a real hit in Oklahoma and Georgia–it is raising learning levels in these areas significantly. Of course, the right wing kooks are against it and the progressive thinking dems started the programs, but now young mothers love them.

  • Coffee Steve

    And Marco Rubio for reaching for a bottle of water during a televised speech

    Isn’t that the truth, some site had a video showing Obama, Clinton, Hillary and all of them doing the same on some major speeches they gave.

    I cannot overstate Apple how disgusted I am with the press anymore. They can use the excuse of 24×7 news now and they have to report something like all this, but if that is true then cut the programming to a 12 hour cycle then repeat the news and only have short update segments.

    They are a laughing stock anymore. Problem is what they are doing isn’t funny, they have a serious job and an awesome responsibility that they have just forgot now.

  • Ratboy

    @ and Marco Rubio for reaching for a bottle of water during a televised speech

    I just CANT beleive that ANY republican politician would DARE to have a need for water!!!!! Just how INSENSITVE can they be????? Doesnt Rubio know that with global warming we are just about OUT of water??? AND IN A PLASTIC BOTTLE!!!!!!!???????

  • usa8888

    fox News, the propaganda arm of the far right fringe, is running a story about Homeland Security buying bullets–somehow they think this is news… say what? I guess the implication is that the government is coming to take us over…are there really people in their audience dumb enough to believe that??? I mean other than Ted Nugent???

  • usa8888

    Rat–what the comedians and most Americans were saying about Rubio was that, “Don’t worry, nobody noticed….that Rubio was giving a speech.”

  • Coffee Steve

    PS @ Apple

    Everytime I gave a report I always reminded myself how this could effect someones thinking and the impact it could have on families of the one and the one I was reporting on and what could happen, so I made 100% sure that everything I was reporting was as it was reported.

    Today most of them couldn’t care less if it gets them air time and they can show off their 200 dollar hair cuts

  • usa8888

    The right fringe actually has senators and congressmen who believe in creationism…in fact one of these was appointed head of the House Science Committee (by right wing kooks, of course)…these are the same people who don’t believe in global warming..you know the kind whoslunked science class in the 4 th grade…

  • Coffee Steve

    PS to the PS @Apple

    A few years ago Nancy Grace had a woman on that had her child stolen. Grace made here out to be a liar and bad mother and made it seem the mother had killed the child and was hiding it, she humiliated her on air. The woman later that day killed herself and a week later they found the baby and the person that kidnapped the child. Yet Grace is still on the air. She is a baffoon.

    Just another day in the life of a Chicago democrat!

    @UpAndOver–Just tell anyone who blames Republicans– try living in the crime infested inner cities where the Altar of the Democratic Party is at 100% rule.Yeah lucky you not a Republican for miles…but you might not make it out alive.
