    Mickey–here it is again for you–read it and remember it…
    —The cost of gasoline is being MANIPULATED by refineries.

  • usa8888

    Dana–how’s that austerity program working out for Europe? Are you saying they are communists now? Dana–I can get you in a good grade school….

  • Doug Z

    Geo Bush had a masters in business, with good grades. Dems, none of they will release their transcript. that is so smart.

    Posted April 9, 2013 at 10:42 AM

    Mickey–Obama is the most intelligent president (equal to Clinton)

  • Doug Z

    Europe spent all their money. Now none to spend.

    Posted April 9, 2013 at 11:04 AM

  • Chriscee

    Only BOGUS thing I can see….is USA8888 and his daily talking points memo from the left wing kookville.

  • Mikey O

    USA88888 Mickey–here it is again for you–read it and remember it…
    —The cost of gasoline is being MANIPULATED by refineries.

    Sorry No it’s by the EPA mandates and the OPEC cartel which cut production by 1 million barrels. SO why did the prices go down when Georger Bush cut it down to 2 blends across the USA by exective order 2007 and 2008 ? Why cant obama do it isnt he for the poor and middle class ? Or in the Pockets of the Greenies ??

    we haven’t bulit a new refinery since the 70’s so you telling me if you get the refinery from making 10 other blends that it wouldn’t increase gasoline supply for the other two blends ??? .

  • Chriscee

    Gun control will NEVER pass the Senate. We already know too many senators are scared of being defeated in 2014….which of course will happen anyways….democrats do NOT have the balls….to go along with Obama. So most gun control bills in the Senate will fall…and it will be due to HARRY DO NOTHING REID’S…FAILURE. Failure…like Obama….===FAILURE.

  • Chriscee

    Once again..obama = FAILURE….

    2014 Will be a democratic failure as well…republicans will retain the house…re-take the senate…and we’ll move Reid and Obama both…to the back of the bus. Gonna be fun!!

    CNN Poll:

    Obama DISapproval RISES

    Obama at 49% approval and SINKING!!

    Economy: 44% Approve, 54% Disapprove

    Federal Budget Deficit: 38% Approve, 58% Disapprove

  • Mikey O

We have no idea what his college school grades are because he wont release them. So how do you know he is smart/intelligent???? He won re-election so why not realse the records ?? what Does he have to hide ??? Oh My USA8888 Obama has something to hide.

  • Ratboy

    Chriscee, Mikey, Doug, BOGUS BOGUS BOGUS!!!!!!! :shock: Sorry but the Dung has spoken!! :lol: :lol:

  • Jeff

    Still a right wing attempt at a gang bang in here……

    >but, those so inclined to name call , at least get a few new ones at Best & Worst ,IMMATURE NAMES TO CALL PEOPLE . (Then keep them to yourself.)

    > His status here is resident troll.

    Well…..That didn’t last long, welcome to the club!


    Rattyboy saying someone has credibility and uses only TRUE sources is like:
    A DEMON telling a mortal that they are on the fast-track to Heaven.

    :lol: :lol:


  • usa8888

    This just in: Fox Fake News does NOT have this yet and they continue to report and distort 24/7….Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul are looking REALLY stupid after they called for a filibuster on the sensible gun legislation which 90% of Americans (even NRA members) support. It’s kind of like going up against apple pie and motherhood–not a good idea. Michael Bloomberg has said he will personally out spend the NRA’s Chief Clown La Pierre and will institute a voting log on how right wingers vote so they can be ousted from office next election…..more to follow….contact Fox Fake News for distortions of this topic…..

  • usa8888

    Mickey–I don’t think I can get you into grade school, maybe pre-school–are you game????

  • Mikey O

    usa8888 So you can’t answer the question to bad you have to insult :(

    Dont forget to Thank Ronald Reagan for the missle defense Obama’s going to use LOL

  • Chriscee

    Definition of liberal insanity– USA8888 who keeps repeating the same insane BS every day.

  • Ratboy

    yep jeffie then Dung Beetle, Dung Beetle then jeffie, Just like the old days!

  • usa8888

    This just in: The right wingers in the Senate do NOT have enough votes for a filibuster on gun measures (which 90% of Americans favor–they are looking REALY stupid …AND the American people will oust those who vote to filibuster….

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–we have an opening in Mississippi or rural Georgia for you –think you would fit in there better than Colorado……

  • usa8888

    Rat can’t list any right wing accomplishments so how he expect to sell houses….?

  • usa8888

    Mickey–the answer to your question should be obvious to you…..
