    Is that what ya wanted to hear?? :) Chriscee is gonna break some dishes over this one!!

  • Jeff

    The Obama budget is a setup for the GOP, the left ain’t happy about the budget, the right are NEVER happy with anything, so now President Obama gets some credit for trying to compromise. The GOP are gonna take the hit. Only time will tell!!

    Dem Senator Thanks CNN For Support in Gun Debate…

    Biden thanks MSNBC…

    They should thank Hannity for saying “I even went out and bought more guns because of Obama”
    Maybe that was the remark that scared Republican Senators into having a debate….a debate!!

  • Graham

    Cable news is dying a death.

  • Jeff

    Big news week and yet Bill-O is down from last week performance,…….. 2,513 353 755, must of alienated his core audience by talking nicely about Margret Thatcher. :lol:


    Check out the footage of Rush Limbaugh crying today, because the First Lady gave a emotional speech in Chicago relating to a slain young girl to gun violence. It drove to sob on air…..lol!! He hates Michelle so much and can’t stand to see her get such a emotional positive reaction from passionately speaking than him.

  • dana

    Ralph Hahn:: dont leave out…1]if you like your dr. you can keep him, 2]he would never tinker with social security or medicare, yesterdays budget proves otherwise, 3]I believe in all of the above in terms of energy independence,4] under my administration more oil is being drilled domestically then at any time, but failed to mention that those results were on private land not gvts. 4]Obamacare will bring down insurance rates, up 20% thus far. 5]will not raise taxes on the backs of the middle class, the supreme court called obamacare a tax, plus a 3.8% obamacare payroll tax on all…and it goes on..

  • Chriscee

    Chriscee isn’t breaking anything over it…So Rachel and O’Donnell wins one night in how many?? People tuned to see how they were going to spin Obama’s BS budget. And that is exactly what is it…BS!!

    Poor Chris Hayes…someone really should put an end to his misery…now….and I heard Ed Schultz say he doesn’t know when he’s going to weekends.

    Sounds like msnBS is about finished with fat eddy.

  • Ratboy

    Hannity beats Maddow by 813k overall and loses the key by 32k and he is CRUSHED!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    but note that more OLD people watched Maddow too!! You know them Lawrence Welk watchers :lol: :lol:

  • Chriscee

    Why when Obama and his single mother wife…always inject themselves into everything..

    Obama “If I had a son he’d look like Trayvon.”

    Single Mother Obama “Hadiya Pendleton was me, and I was her’

    Perhaps neither are proud of what they have become..so they have to inject themselves as someone else.

    Is Single Mother Obama proud of her country YET?

  • Joe

    And for the 5000th day in a row, Ratboy and Ralph Hahn say the same thing. You two really need to get a life. Obama is the President. Not Romney. Get over it. Bye bye.

  • Chriscee

    I am older….but I can promise you..I wouldn’t turn my channel to msnBS to watch any of them. Reading about them is enough to make me want to hurl.

    Hannity nearly doubles his viewership over Maddow. She hasn’t reach a million viewers in quite sometime.

    And Greta nearly doubles O’Donnell…who should just move to a communist country and stay there.

  • AppleStinx

    ‘The Five’ and the 3 FNC’s primetime programs seem to be on the opposite ends of a ratings scale.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Even total losers, like MSNBC, HAS to win once in awhile. Enjoy the 9PM & 10pm wins for the next 24 hours, libbers. It was probably the excitement of the make-believe gun vote that brought them out in larger numbers. :)

  • Ralph Hahn

    @dana: I’m sure those additional lies will be in years 2, 3 and 4 of his first term. Part 3 of OBAMA’s LIES (2010). Look for it early tomorrow, right here….

  • Ralph Hahn

    OOPS: Two posts above…should be “…MSNBC, HAVE to win…” NOT HAS.

    Ralph’s Editor lol

  • Raz

    Looks like MSNBC gets their once a week win. The only time the ‘wealth’ gets shared.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Chriscee: >>> So Rachel and O’Donnell win one night in how many?? People tuned to see how they were going to spin Obama’s BS budget. <<<

    MSNBC'S lead over Hannity & Greta for one night: Even a husband and a wife can't have nightime relations EVERY night of the year. LOL!!!

    Keep up the good work. I just can't deal directly with these imbeciles anymore.

  • Chriscee

    A new NBC/WSJ poll finds President Obama’s approval rating has fallen 6 points since his reelection to 47 percent.

    At the same time, his dispproval rating has ticked up 5 points to 48 percent, the poll found.

    That puts him underwater for the first time since August last year, when an NBC/WSJ survey found him at 48 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval.

    The poll also found that 31 percent of Americans believe the country is headed in the right direction — down from 41 percent last fall — while 61 percent think the nation is headed in the wrong direction. That’s up from 53 percent.

    That bit of info was at Politico.

    Gallup has Obama 49% approval – 44 DIS-approval. Won’t be long Obama will be underwater in every poll.
