    “Chris Hayes smells up the air waves once again!! I wonder how long they are going to give that time slot a turkey show like that?” Want to bet? Remember Mitt, “10 K, how’s 10 K?” I say he’s good for 4 to 6 weeks, max. What do you think? BBL

  • Jeff

    Chriscee is celebrating the Republican approval rating of 15% to the Dems 13%

    When you compare crap to crap…..you still end up with crap….now I see why YOU might would be so happy…..mmmm hmmm!

  • Sicilian Papa

    MSNBC preforms pretty good in demo with 250k. Are they a one night wonder? Only the shadow knows.

  • Chriscee

    You brought up the subject…if you don’t like your own crap flung back at you…don’t fling it to begin with….

    Apparently you’re celebrating the failures of the democratic party….and there are 100’s of those failures…

    Professor Defends Calling Republicans ‘Stupid and Racist’

    If this was a “conservative” professor speaking about democrats this way…he’d be condemned to hell.

    Liberals are just so hateful. Indoctrination of our children..much?

  • Chriscee

    President Barack Obama’s proposed budget would simultaneously compel Americans to enroll in a tax-deferred retirement account and “prohibit” them from saving more than $3 million in such accounts.

    That sum, Obama’s budget argues, is all that is “needed to fund reasonable levels of retirement saving.”

    However, President Obama would not allow Americans to opt out of his prohibition on retirement-account savings that exceed the “reasonable level” of $3 million.

    The second bullet point in Obama’s plan to “rebalance the tax code” is entitled: “Prohibit Individuals from Accumulating Over $3 Million in Tax-Preferred Retirement Accounts.”

    “The Budget would limit an individual’s total balance across tax-preferred accounts to an amount sufficient to finance an annuity of not more than $205,000 per year in retirement, or about $3 million for someone retiring in 2013,” says the budget.

    The budget says that if this part of Obama’s plan is enacted, the Treasury will tax away about $9 billion from American savers over the next ten years.

    WHO is Obama..to tell Americans how much they can have for retirement? Just who does this man think he is???

    CNN continues to alter their schedule. They had Anderson Cooper at 11:00 and To the Point(less) at 10:00. They have move AC back to 10:00 and they are showing Wolfie at 11:00.

    I guess they are still trying to find a combination that works. They may be doing more damage by switching programing around. Nobody knows when anything is on.

  • Mt Rick

    CNN was typically in 4th place last night being beaten out by HLN although numbers were higher.

    Ralphie–feel blessed to Obama, a super intellect, as President. If the GOP were in charge, we would be Great Depression #2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    Right wingers–which of these fit you? –here is a psychographic profile of your group: mostly white and skewing toward old age; mostly uneducated; many are racists and/or bigots; most are insensitive to others plights and hence greedy; many are religious fanatics; most hate government even though they like getting their Social Security check each month…they also like taking advantage of Medicare; almost all are backward thinking, owing to their lack of education……

  • Chriscee

    When Obama is finished we will be in the GREAT Depression #2. It will take a republican to dig us out.

  • usa8888

    Right wingers, take note:
    The key point is that austerity practices by a government during a fragile economy or recession is a recipe for DISASTER—Europe is a perfect example. After their austerity practices, they have massive unemployment and negative economic growth. You don’t cut spending to grow an economy and jobs! The right wing uneducated can’t grasp this because they have no education. Obama is setting a course to control the sale and use of mass murder weapons (which 90% of the country agrees with); he is addressing global warming (but the creationist right wing doesn’t believe the earth is more than 10,000 years old so they have trouble understanding global warming); America is the global leader now is oil and natural gas production; Obama has made more money available for college education over the objections of right wingers; and he is trying to reduce health costs which the GOP is content to see increase 100% every 10 years.

    Rachel pummels hannity–he’s bleeding badly…….

  • usa8888

    Billo attracts 75% of the Lawrence Welk crowd…………….
    while Lawrence puts a hurtin’ on Greta…..

    CNN’s programming is so insipid and generic, that they could have Blitzer at 8, AC at 9 and Tapper at 10pm, move them around the next day, and none of their 500K regular viewers would notice.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee–you should feel BLESSED to have Obama as your President!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dave Sky

    What happened to Rat-trap? Another dead sock-puppet?

  • Doug Z

    Please right wing do not act with hate like the left wing . You will show name calling racist, lack of education like them.

    Please be smart and let them do it.
