    Backward thinking right wingers in the House have as their sole objective to ruin the US economy through OBSTRUCTION of Obama’s economic and jobs policies. Any slowness in the economy is to be blamed on these dinosaur thinkers…..

  • usa8888

    If Rat can’t even list the accomplishments fo the right wing GOP, he probably doesn’t know what a racist or bigot is….

  • Ralph Hahn

    At 3:18pm, you posted a “psychographic profile” of Fox News and you claim that the ad agencies have this data. Produce it. And, it should match up with every claim that you made, shouldn’t it?

  • usa8888

  • Ralph Hahn

    8888: You mention Ratboy, and the thought just occured to me. I’M NOT supposed to be acknowledging your existance as well.

  • usa8888

    Betty–if you had any knowledge of economics at all, you would know that the debt was largely created by Bush and inherited by Obama…and you would know that a government must spend to get out a bad recession or depression, suggest you take an econ course and bring yourself up to speed.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Betty: Of that list of “Obama’s Accomplishments,” you can stop at #1. Obamacare just might be the death of us all. I’ll bet you can turn every alleged “positive” into a 27-item big negative. Nice to know there a LibDem blogs where one can turn to for the “truth.” Ha ha ha ha ha. :)

  • Ratboy

    Ralphie Boy, zero x 4 is like a hemorrhoid, you try like hell not to scratch it but it becomes so annoying that sometimes you just have to!!! :lol: :lol:

  • AppleStinx

    BBL. Going to have eyes checked. Thought I saw ‘Starting Point’ finish Tuesday as the top CNN program in the A25-54 demo.

  • Chriscee

    If Democrats truly wanted to help the poor….they would start by passing JOBS bills that actually help..instead of hinder….but no…not the democrats….they want everyone to remain poor…and be on food stamps.

    Democrats have created a FOOD STAMP NATION.

  • Chriscee

    People on food stamps in America…out number the entire population of Spain.

    More brilliancy from the liberal demented society.

  • Sicilian Papa



    Obama accomplishments

    6 trillion added to the debt
    high unemployment
    50 million in poverty
    Increased insurance costs

  • Sicilian Papa

    Less people working than when he took office

  • Mike W


    You are an economic wasteland. You claim no one else understands economics but reading your prattle demonstrates you are the one who does not understand economics. Try growing up and learn to do your own research. Also, your lists are just that lists. You don’t even understand what you are posting.

    Thanks for the entertainment you provide.

  • Chriscee

    If liberals had any KNOWLEDGE whatsoever….the world would be a better place.

    We all know liberalism is a mental dis-order.

  • Mark2

    Fox News 25-54 demo has dropped by close to 50% in the past 2 years.

    The Republican Party is slowly dying out.

  • svr

    …….didnot send help for the ambassador in Bengazi, fast and furious and the death of the two boarder patrol, black unemployment at its highest ever, more people on food stamp during this administration ever, more people out of work or underemployed….. support for the muslim brotherhood that turn out to be a disaster,….. obamacare and the inevitable increase in ever insured premium…….. the socializing of America, What a great job Obama has done so far.

  • Ratboy

    Why is it that all the leftie loons here keep trying to one up each other to prove THEY are the Village idiot! You would think they wouldn’t want that designation! :shock: :lol:

  • usa8888

    This just in: 80% of Coloradans favor background checks but the right wing kooks are aginst them.. They are out of ouch with America..

  • usa8888

    The Rat hasn’t got the memory or intellect to list the right wing GOP accomplishments…
