    Sequester? Obama Gives Jordan $200 Million for Syrian Refugees

    RUSH: King Abdullah of Jordan just said Syrian refugees are costing him $500 million and Obama said (paraphrasing), “That’s okay. We’ll give you $200 million to help defer it.” What happened to our sequester? How can he just authorize $200 million for Syrian refugees in Jordan?

    64% of Immigration Reform Supporters Put Border Control First

    Most voters like the finding a way for illegal immigrants to stay in this country, but not until the border is secured. But they’re skeptical about the federal government’s interest in securing the border.

  • usa8888

    Right wing priorities:
    1) eliminate birth control and support the Personhood Amendment
    2) eliminate gun background checks so more criminals and lunatics can get assault weapons and murder more children and adults
    3) give big tax breaks to billionaires with yachts and private jets
    4) replace science with creationism and bible study
    5) eliminate Social Security, Medicare, the EPA, the FDA, the Federal Reserve, etc.
    6) embrace racism, bigotry and general backward thinking
    7) worship lunatics like Slimebaugh, Beck, Hannity and send them money
    8) attend the CPAC Comedy Convention
    9) watch Faux News–the propaganda arm of the right wing (bias 24/7)
    10) ruin the economy by cutting spending in a recession or depression
    11) Obstruction, obstruction, obstruction

  • Chriscee

    @Todd–I think Sharpton, Jackson and Wright….are all FAKES. Wannabee’s….they were never accepted as true preachers…so they condemn those that don’t believe in them.

  • usa8888

    Gun control support is at all time highs..not even apple pie and motherhood would poll higher…but La Pierre the extremist head of the Nra, is against his own memebership…

  • usa8888

    right wing GOP blamed for sequester as their party collapses…..

  • usa8888

    Immigration reform supported by most moderate GOP but right wing kooks against it…..

  • Bobbyv

    H/C

  • usa8888

    This just in: Sen John McCain suports higher taxes for wealthy by closing tax loop holes and working a grand bargain with Obama…right wing kooks oppose the GOP moderates……

  • Tested

    Why must the comments here always turn away from ratings and into nothing but a barrage of childish political commentary? But I digress…..

    Anyone else surprised at the 93,000 primetime viewers for Fox Business Network? There wasn’t some special event last night to drive viewers there. That seems high for a network that’s used to getting extremely low ratings.

  • Chriscee

    Gun Control support is FALLING…AND FALLING FAST…..

    just like Obama’s POLL NUMBERS……gotta love that.

    Guess America’s love affair for Obama is OVER. By the end of this term – at this rate – …Obama will be the most hated president not only by Muslims…but by Americans too!!

  • usa8888

    Fox Fake News reports that some right wing senator form Kansas refuses to accept blame for the sequester….shutting 149 airport control towers.

  • usa8888

    Obama’s poll numbers are three times those of the right wing GOP

  • usa8888

    Greater than two-thirds of Fox’s audience is over 65……

  • ninja

    Why should a senator take the blame for sequestster when it was Obama’s idea?

  • usa8888

    Rush Slimebaugh appeals to the uneducated far right wing of the GOP whose ideology has been rejected by the moderate GOP. The far right is analogous to the old Birch Society, the kooks that ran around in the 1950’s……

  • usa8888

    This just in: too bad Kansas has to suffer with the right wing Kooks as governor, etc. there are a lot of progressive people in Kansas (and other red states), but unfortunately these kooks get into power and the state goes south. The good news is that the right wing is splitting the GOP into two groups and this will change GOP politics in the future…..

  • usa8888

    This just in: Obama brokers Turkey and Israel reconciliation……a good thing…not on Fox Fake News yet……

  • usa8888

    This just in :: Obama is the most respected president overseas we have had in 50 years……
