    @ USA 8
    You avoided the subject. How do you feel about your future President and her age?

    p.s. I live in the Communist Republic of California.

  • Laurence Glavin

    Mediaite.com mentioned that the DOMA and Proposition 8 cases before the Supremes had given Rachel Maddow* a boost in the demo. This was part of a commentary that overemphasis on the subject was getting to be too much. I’mm sympathetic to the cause (repealing Prop 8 & DOMA) but I clicked way from John Fugelsang on Current TV, Rachel Maddow* and the first half of Lawrence O’Donnell to watch the free HBO offerings on Camcast TV in the Boston area (a documentary about poverty on Long Island, NY and Bill Maher)during their Watchathon. *Hey neutrino brains: “Madcow” wan’t clever the first time you used it, and so maybe now that you’ve gotten it out of your systems, you can be quitting now. However I reserve the right to call Rush Limbaugh Rush Limpbaugh because he ACTUALLY WAS detained with enough Viagra to call his, um, potency into question.

    Hillary is a paragon of intelligence like Obama, so age makes no difference .

    Total Value of Government Waste: $18,224,377,097

    Google : The Waste List

    Amazing how much money is wasted by DEMOCRATS….They want to TAX and SPEND us into oblivion. But they are going to be STOPPED!! 2014 election cycle…say bye bye to the Senate for Democrats….Republicans will take over….Republicans will keep the House…..and OBAMA…will be a LAME DUCK.

  • usa8888

    Tax and spend is a meaningless phrase used by right wing kooks who have no chance of taking over the presidency. As the economy improves, in spite the GOP doing everything possible to ruin it, the dems will maintain their hold on the government and things will improve nicely…..as the t-party goes down the drain..

  • Chriscee

    Since Jay Leno started bashing Obama…..his ratings have gone up. He should of done that a long time ago…and now NBC is getting rid of Leno….because you know…

    anyone that doesn’t go all in for Obama…is on the chopping block….Obama is all THREAT and no action for governing.

  • Chriscee

    For Obama….it’s all about the teleprompter…

    Rand Paul speaks on the house floor for 13 hours straight….no teleprompter…

    Obama can’t even speak to a 2nd grade class without a teleprompter.

    Absolutely amazing…..just shows…you can have the paper that says you are smart….but when it comes down to it….Obama isn’t the sharpest tool in the box.

    “To the left, freedom is designed as whatever you want to do with other people’s money, and there’s no limit on how much of other people’s money you are entitled to.” – Rush

    “Employees are blaming their employer for their take-home pay being reduced? How does that happen? I have never, ever in my entire working life assumed that my employer had anything to do with the deductions in my paycheck. I’ve always known what taxes are.” – Rush

    We Live in a Low-Information Universe

    The House Science, Space and Technology subcommittee hearing on the possibility of another asteroid colliding with the earth. The House committee hearing on another asteroid hitting the earth? These people can’t do anything right. What do you mean, the House committee? We have to turn to the House committee to know what to do if an asteroid’s coming? Anyway, Bill Posey, a Republican from Florida, is talking to the NASA administrator, Charles Bolden. He said, “What would we do if you detected even a small asteroid like the one that detonated in Russia, that was headed for New York in three weeks? What would you do? What would we do? What could anybody do?”

    BOLDEN: The bottom line, as always, the funding did not come.

    RUSH: Oh, jeez.

    BOLDEN: And so the answer to you is, if it’s coming in three weeks, pray. If we find that out right now — and that’s not bad…

    POSEY: That’s reality.

    BOLDEN: That’s not bad policy. I am a practicing Episcopalian and I love what the Pope’s doing right now. I’ll tell you. Things have happened. You got to pray.

  • Chriscee

    Seems Obama LIED even more about furloughs…..Obama does what he does best…LIE TO AMERICA.

    Sequestration was Obama’s idea…he wanted….and he got it…he made a HUGE ISSUE OF IT….and it is costing him.

    Not many are believing Obama anymore.

    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?

    Yep…Denver, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins are the PRIME PIT AREA

    Voters Again Trust GOP More Than Democrats on Economy

    Voters continue to trust Democrats more than Republicans on nine of 15 major issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports, but the GOP has regained the trust advantage on the key issues of the economy and national security.

    New Rasmussen Reports national telephone surveying finds that 45% of Likely U.S. Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats when it comes to handling the economy. Forty percent (40%) trust Democrats more.

    Do you know how many times the media has thought they had me fixed and done away with over the course of 25 years? How many times they thought they’d finally pulled it off? And yet here we are.” -Rush

    Colbert King’s Low-Information Definition of the Term “Low-Information Voter”

    RUSH: Over on PBS on their Sunday morning Inside Washington show, they had Washington Post columnist Colbert King, known to his friends in the DC establishment as Colby. They were having a discussion about the Republican Party. Nina Totenberg said, “When you look actually at what the Republican Party analysis of itself was –” this Reince Priebus thing, “– the fear was that the electorate is a different electorate. And it isn’t just much more of a minority electorate. It is an electorate that wants some serious social and economic safety net that is different from what they are hearing from Republicans today.” And this is what Colbert King had to say.

    KING: The guru of the Republican Party, the face of conservatism is Rush Limbaugh. We all agree to that. He puts down those results by saying Obama won with a low-information voters, low-information voters. What’s he mean by that? They’re sort of stupid. They don’t understand the issues.

    RUSH: No, that’s not… nobody in the media, I don’t know what is so hard about getting me right. I’m on 15 hours a day. You don’t need a password to listen to this program. It’s free over the air. You can even listen to parts of this program at RushLimbaugh.com. You do not have to be a subscriber. You can access the text of this program at RushLimbaugh.com. It’s free. It’s everywhere. What is so hard to understand about what I say?

    I have never said that low-information voters are stupid. I just said they don’t know what they think they know. They are prisoners to the media, which has dumbed them down. Low-information voters can be doctors. Low-information voters can be scientists. They can be among all walks of life. It has nothing to do with IQ. It has to do with what they don’t know because of their media sources. Low-information voters are clearly people that don’t have all the information available to make a voting choice. That’s all they are. And they’re all over the place. And most of them do vote Democrat.

    RUSH: By the way, Colbert King of Washington Post, I just want to remind you that the term “low-information voter,” I’m pretty sure that we coined it. I’m pretty sure that we made up that name, but we’re not the only ones to use it. Richard Stengel, the TIME Magazine editor, was explaining why Obama was named Person of the Year. Mr. King, do you remember what Mr. Stengel said? He went on TV and he also had a press release.

    They named Obama the Person of the Year because no-information voters loved the guy, and it’s no-information people — low-information voters — who he said are transforming America. It’s remarkable! TIME Magazine said it. Obama is the guy that ended up being able to tap that block. He’s the first politician to get votes from people who don’t care about anything and who aren’t paying attention, and that was worth honoring the president as Person of the Year.
