    @Obama has become a huge liability for the Democratic party.

  • Chriscee

    Very True Rat….Hayes better be worried….He will never out perform O’Reilly.

    I was listening to something on the radio today….and said all of broadcast news and programming are taking a nose dive.

    And all of msnbc and cnn listeners are finding their news now on twitter instead of tuning into their news programs.

    People are burnt out from the propaganda of the Obama handlers from 2012. Twitter is awesome..

  • usa8888

  • Chriscee

    Looks like Rahm Emanuels Mayoralship is in big trouble. Chicago Teachers unions are talking about making Rahm a ONE TERM mayor.

    LMAO Emanuel is a definite failure..like is old Chicago pal…Obama.

  • Chriscee

    Google it Jeff…if you know how. I didn’t make it up…

    Some democrats feel Obama has become a liability to them in the 2014 election cycle…some feel it so much..they’ve bailed – they want as far away from Obama as they can get.

    @ Chriscee

    35 D’s in the house voted AGAIST the Harry Reid budget and guess what??? Most of them are up for re-election in 2014!!! I gues they figure they better vote for what the people want NOT for what Obama wants if they want to keep their job!!!! :lol: :lol:

  • Jeff

    @ the GOP is party of DINOSAURS……it will be extinct soon….

    They can’t believe in dinosaurs if the world is only 10,000 years old, as many of the radical religious right wingers do.

    Try another “dead” object they can grasp…..ENRON, Pontiac, Lehman Brothers, Country Wide, immigration reform, gun legislation.

  • Ratboy

    @ Obama is highly regarded by most people in the world

    DUMB A$$!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

  • Raz

    Chriscee– the GOP is party of DINOSAURS

    Except if you go to Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse and Troy, NY. Still alive and well.

  • Chriscee

    Same old tired cut and paste….Does any democrat EVER have an original thought??? Probably not..they are sent their daily talking points memo every morning….

  • usa8888

    You are right, Jeff–the GOP thinks the EArth started 10,000 years ago……

  • usa8888

    Hannity loses big to Rachel on Wednesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Chriscee

    Maddow could only dream of having nearly 2 million viewers every night. She’s a wannabee.

  • Jeff


  • Letmethink

    Chriscee–I think you touched a nerve–ha
    I visited a friend who had a cabin in CO near Colorado Springs several summers. The first time I went she told me that once people knew I was from TX they wouldn’t like me. She was right. Guess we were in the wrong part of CO huh?
