    @Cathy I bet you Obama care will not go into effect 2014 it will be delay one reason will be the exchanges will not be ready.

  • usa8888

    The usual left wing uninformed suspects are posting again. What ibsles didn’t mention is that Obama has more than twice the approval ratings as the GOP and its policies have.

  • usa8888

    Obamacare is already leading to reduced medical prices. The equipment mfrs are gouging people and this has been addressed.

    for you ratboy.

    AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH you know how I love Frank!!!…………………..but you DO know what you can do with the snow right?? :lol:

  • Ratboy

    Idiot Alert!!! Idiot Alert!!! All hands on deck the loon has landed!!!

  • dana

    I expect the next speech Obama makes will have a slew of 5 year old cancer patients, bald from their treatment, and 90 year old alzheimer ladies standing behind him to tell his audience that unless he gets his way the Republicans will kill these people…the guy is Shameless…

  • usa8888

    This just in: Fox right wing “News” is distorting and warping the real news again–this time crticizing Biden for going to Colorado. Colorado is on the way to enacting FOUR gun control laws. Of course, the right wing frings has no logical reason for having weapons of mass murder except that “it’s fun.”

  • usa8888

    this just in: one of the lunatic right fringe gun nuts in Colorado has been arrested for threatening the life of people in Colorado’s congress and making racists slurs, etc. This guy claims to have dozens of mass murder weapons and 100 round cartridges, etc and he says World War 1 and 2 are nothing compared to the damage he will inflict. He has been relieved of duties by his company.

  • usa8888

    The right fringe is unable to logically defend the ludicrous comments of NRA extremist La Pierre. The bogus 2nd Amendment claim is a joke that far right nuts who want to overthrow the government use. I invite the gun nuts on this site to tell why the extremist La Pierre has flip flopped on the background check issue. La Pierre will next come out against police road blocks…because want to avoid them…. But La Pierre is content to rake in as much blood money for his lobby as possible

  • Cathy

    Gabriel, LOL you listed a liberal organization. Who do a survey of 1000 scientist, whose names were listed in a liberal book.

    Also can you tell me what and whose version of the bible you are quoting?

  • usa8888

    The right wing nuts on this go silent because they can not defend their absurd positions…and in fact, that’s why they lost the recent election BIGTIME…Fox Faux News is still smarting from this, but in order to apease their fringe audience of a couple million (a small fraction of the US populace), they continue to present distorted and warped “news” because they can make a good fast buck off suckers with this approach….even thought their audience is growing older and older..

  • Ratboy

    Somebody left the door to the rubber room unlocked again!!!!

  • usa8888

    I see the rat and the right wing is again unable to defends their absurd positions….and this, again, is why they lost the elections so badly..

    BOB WOODWARD: Obama is Showing ‘A Kind Of Madness I Haven’t Seen In A Long Time’…

    Bob isn’t exactly a right wing supporter boys and girls.

  • Ratboy

    @ Coffee Steve

    I think there is a slow turn here from some on the left against the kings thinking. Some are tired of getting embarrased by the lies and the spin not to mention the LACK of transparency even as the king is out there yelling that he is the most transparent!

    They are looking at 2014 when it will be decided state by state and most states have R’s in power in the Govoners chair not to mention how many state legislatures have R majority.

    Remember, the Senators and Congressman DO have to worry about long term tenure unlike Obama who is done at the end of 4 years!!

  • Coffee Steve


    The Mid-Terms if they follow History during a second term President shows a large turnover against the sitting President, ala Clinton, Bush etc… The up-coming Mid-Terms in 2014 will determine the course America will take.

    Yes, some left media and lefties are starting to weary of the claims vs. the results so 2014 should be interesting.

  • Coffee Steve

    *Obama to wait until sequester hits before meeting with congressional leaders. Will wait till Friday to meet. :shock:

    (Someone please email a clue to the White House Please)

    *Junior high teacher tells kid to remove Marines t-shirt or get suspended

    (Children? Semper Fi and tell the teacher BITE ME!!!)

    What has Mayor Nanny banned today?

    and this here folks is why the GOP is losing.

    A Republican lawmaker questioned President Obama’s birthplace on Tuesday, joining the ranks of conservative “birthers” who have raised doubts about the validity of the president’s birth certificate.

    During an appearance on Michael Patrick Shiels’ radio show, Michigan state Sen. Tom Casperson (R-Escanaba) was asked if he believed that the president was born in the United States.

    “Don’t know,” Casperson replied, in a clip recorded by progressive watchdog group Progress Michigan.

    Casperson said that he thought it was “strange” that the mainstream media has not explored the issue.

    “Based on everything everybody’s saying, I don’t know because it seems like that issue was dropped immediately as far as major media went,” he said. “My gut tells me if had been a different president, like say George W. Bush, they’d have been digging into that like there was no tomorrow and trying to get to the bottom of it, which they really never did try to get to the bottom of, so it became a conspiracy theory and no big deal.”

    He continued, “I think it’s strange, again, that it’s not being looked at by certain groups that normally would.”

    and this here folks is why the GOP is losing.

    Nice twist!!! This is a shot at the media and their bias not a claim that the Kining was not born here.

    And why the heck did the liberal hack even ask the question????
