    How many right wingers agree with Chief Clown La Pierre that criminals and lunatics should not be background-checked for guns?

  • Chriscee

    Awww liberals are mad because Paul had a packed house at Howard University and students were actually listening to his message. What exactly has Obama done for the black community? 1 answer: NOTHING!!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    Obama had absolutely NO mandate. Out of close to 320 American, ONLY 53 million people voted for him.

  • Freyja

    Sorry but I can’t take anyone seriously who resorts to name calling to get his point across.

    usa8888 You seem very angry at anyone who opposes your point of view. Oh yeah that’s right you want a dictator ran country, you don’t want a two party system.

    I will support anyone who stands up for the US Constitution period.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Take Two:

    Obama had absolutely NO mandate. Out of close to 320 million Americans, only 53 million of them voted for The Annointed One.

  • Ratboy

    Chief Clown La Pierre, CPAC Comedy Convention, right wing kooks, Billo, Obama got 53 million votes, and lets throw in a Lian Ryan and a Robme and we have covered it all so now the Dung Beetle can shut the #$%$%^ up and go away!

  • mary

    people are sick of the same old crap on MSDNC. In the morning you have Joe who says he is republican but agrees with the lefties on his show at least 80% of the time, no Joe is a RINO On Hardball anyone that disagrees with Obama is not doing it because they have a different opinion they are doing it because they are a racest. Madow likes to cut up and paste back together video like what she did to McCain. O’,Donnell ranted about the bible being used to swear in the president. What a group of idiots

  • Borris O’Tool

    To set record straight.

    Ed Schultz’s second wife has cancer. First wife divorce proceedins sealed rumors of spousal abuse.

  • Coffee Steve


    I am so sorry for your families loss. Our thoughts and heart felt prayers are for you all.

  • Freyja

    So Ratboy and usa8888 are the same person. Good to know that ;)

  • Chriscee

    @ Freyja….You better RE-read the comments….they are NOT the same person. Ratboy actually has class and common sense….USA8888 is a robot who only posts talking points from OFA. thanks.

  • Chriscee

    @1966 I too am very sorry for your loss. Keeping you and your family in prayers. Godspeed to your family.

  • Freyja


    Ah my bad, sorry Ratboy.. It was all jumbled together; so I thought it was the same person.

  • usa8888

    Obama had a huge vote margin and a huge states’ margin in spite of all the false advertising the Koch and Adelson ran AND in spite of the fact that the right wing House cuased the economic malaise owing to their economics’ ignorance and heated desire to defeat Obama at ANY cost (per Mitch McConnell) AND in spite of the right wing voter suppression and gerrymandering…..they right wing STILL LOST BIG…….

  • 1966

    @coffee steve and ratboy and dd I left a lenghty reply to dd on yesterdays thread if you would care to read it

  • usa8888

    Freyja–are you going to use your AR-15 to overthrow the government and demonstrate your “2nd Amendment” rights????

  • usa8888

    Chriscee– we still have your house ready in Mississippi so you won’t embarrass yourself any more in Colorado…..

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Freyja: >>> I will support anyone who stands up for the US Constitution period. <<<

    Not only does a President takes an Oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Consitution of the United States." So do elected or appointed officials right down to the municipal level. As a former Planning Board member, I had to take a similar Oath to do the same.

    I am sure thet you agree with me that IF someone wants to change the Constitution, they would have to go through the whole process, state by state, in order for it to be legal.

    So glad to hear you are on board, Freyja. It's not just a piece of paper drawn up in the late 1700's.

  • Chriscee

    It will be democrats who will be embarrassed in 2014!!!

  • 1966

    thank you chriscee
    very much. he was a director of a non profit called reach for resources.that helped mentally challenged people.
    and he was a democrat. but we never fought about politics.
