  • usa8888

    Betty–you are a right winger—perhaps you can answer the questions: what has the right wing GOP accomplished during the past 4 years, other than obstructing job and economic growth and supporting the right winger who supports legitimate rape>???? I am waiting…so far NO other right wingers have dared to answer the question….

    Now, now, Ratty….you have to understand that the Fox Haters have nothing left to attack Fox News with, so they’re trying to invent things…lol

  • usa8888

    This just in: A couple years ago when Boehner and Obama were close to an agreement on deficit and spending–a grand bargain– right wing extremist Eric Cantor talked Boehner out of signing the agreement. The American people will hold Cantor and the right wingers responisble for the subsequent economic repurcussions…..

  • usa8888

    Stan T–why don’t you “invent” some right wing GOP accomplishmets…I dare you ……

  • usa8888

    Boehner, a nice and likeable guy, is being held hostage by the right wing extremists in the House…..the moderate GOP should revolt and take Rove’s advice…..

  • usa8888

    right wingers–call the extremist La Pierre who disregards his members’ wishes and ask this guy why he flip flopped on background stance on weapons checks. Does anyone know????

    Right winmgers, come in, over, over……

  • Bobbyv


    You need to prove to me that Obamacare is lowering H/c cost. I have not seen that anywhere.

    Also, I am late to the gay marriage conversation. I do not have a problem with civil unions or gay marriage but since you were talking about children I have a question: Do those who support gay marriage believe the best environment for a child is in a living home with a man and woman? Two gay people can be good parents, so can a single parent, aunt, etc, but do you agree the best environment is man/woman?

  • clinging to my god

    You can always tell when Fox is crunching his beloved MSNBC in the ratings, usa zero will talk about ANYTHING but ratings..hee hee

  • Sicilian Papa



    Not one dime, just 6.2 trillion. Don’t worry guys and gals the corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media won’t breath a word of this to Mr. and Mrs. Taxpayer. They will find away to blame Bush and the GOP and 60% of the country will buy it. Then they will run out and tout the poll as good news for O.

    “Have you ever been around when an American jet flies over? That’s the sound of freedom. That’s the sound of your freedom going by.” -Rush

  • lbsles

    “The worst thing that can happen is for this sequester to happen after Obama has made all these disaster predictions and everything ends up fine and nobody even notices. Because then the conclusion is, ‘Well, we can cut government and there’s no harm.'” -Rush
