  • Mr. Nielson Ratings

    Janet Napolitano,,,,

    A complete ‘blockhead’.

    She shouldn’t be making any statements other than, ‘we are looking at
    this situtation as both an individual attack and a collective attack’.

    And follow up with, ‘we are looking at all possibilites’.

  • Cathy

    Hello everyone. A new contract has me really busy. I just wanted to stop by to say, I hope everyone’s families are fine. With the Boston bombing and ricin letters it looks like the crazies have decided to come out.

  • Chriscee

    Actually John Fox News waited until the AP had said they confirmed the information before they ran it…UNLIKE CNN.

  • Chriscee

    Hi Cathy…congrats on the new contract

  • JohnH

    We see how that worked out.

  • JohnH

    The AP is starting to hold the same standards as sensational rags.

  • Jeff


    Re:Frustration with CNN…..it is all over the place with their info today…..who reported 12 deaths and you posted it the other day?

    Re: Obama delegation to Britian, former Sec.of State James Baker and Shultz no good?? Our ties to Britian are strong, our ties to Venezuela are fragile and perhaps during this critical change in leadership, a strong gesture is better in the long term. Diplomacy is not for us to totally understand!?! Speaking of diplomacy, Don’t forget their was an agreement with N.Korea for a cease fire negotiated by Carter under President Clinton until Bush put them on a Axis of Evil terror list. A paranoid nation made even MORE paranoid has caused a lot of tension, deaths and chaos ever since by the big talking messy Republican’s blew it!!

    Besides if Obama went or sent high level individuals to the funeral, the right would be b!tching about the money spent on flight hotels etc.

  • Chriscee

    Few in U.S. See Guns, Immigration as Nation’s Top Problems

    The economy and jobs continue to be named as most important U.S. problems


  • JohnH

    Who was from Obama’s cabinet that went to Chavez’s funeral?

  • JohnH

    I thought giving tax breaks was suppose to produce jobs?

  • Matthew

    I’m going to hazard a guess that Gallup’s latest poll (as of this posting) will be getting a little less play here than the April 15th one about people’s top concerns. :!:

  • Mike

    @ Jeff, – you’re absolutely correct – diplomacy is not for YOU to understand. Sending former Secretaries of State (under Republican administrations – the same ones BO demonizes repeatedly) is a class act – NOT. It tells the rest of the world that the USA can and will ignore its long term Allies when it suits us. Wrong message to send to both our Allies and enemies. And, of course, let’s blame GWB for our problems in North Korea. The fact that BO didn’t proceed with the missile defense program (that Bush promoted) when he first came into office sent the wrong message to North Korea. Muammar Kadafi got the message from Bush when we invaded Iraq and gave up his WMD programs.

  • Stan T.

    Thanks guys…and thanks Rat…It’s the first of a series..so I’m already feverishly working on Book 2…lol

  • JohnH

    Those were the same members in office when Thatcher was Prime Minister. That’s suppose to be an insult? I would be insulted if I was them. The press is minimizing their positions once held while worker with her.

  • lbles

    Anybody catch the child president’s presser having a cow about the failure of his gun bill?

    Even danced out the parents of those children killed.

    What a shameless clown.

    The people have spoken.

    Next up: immigration reform, at least the way he wants it.

  • Mike

    It’s perfectly acceptable that both former Secretaries of State be part of our delegation but it should have been headed up by at least Kerry or Biden.

  • Ralph Hahn

    If the five Democrats in the Senate had voted FOR the background check bill instead of against it, it would have passed. Don’t blame the Republicans here. Harry Reid allowed these five Senators to vote against it so that they can keep their seats “safe.” THose are Senators whose state’s population is mainly pro-gun. The have to come home and face their constituents. So, the U.S. Senate has failed the President.

  • lbles

    The thing to remember about the defeat of the gun background bill was those who voted against it.

    It failed by a vote of 54 to 46, with 5 Democrats voting against it.

    Democratic Sens. Mark Pryor (Ark.), Max Baucus (Mont.), Heidi Heitkamp (N.D.), Mark Begich (Alaska) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) voted against it. Reid supported the measure but voted against it to preserve his ability to bring the measure up again. (Like thats going to happen any time soon.)

    Rino GOP Sens. John McCain (Ariz.), Susan Collins (Maine), Pat Toomey (Pa.) and Mark Kirk (Ill.) voted “yes.”

  • Jeff

    again, some don’t seem to understand diplomacy. Ignore our allies???? where, when, how? Wrong!
    You speak of allies through a cold war looking glass. A missile Defense program in that region would cause a melt down with allies we have tensions with….besides we can’t afford it, from the types of foreign policy foolery YOU subscribe too, ya know two wars on a credit card. We enough missiles to blow the world up many times over.

  • lbles

    The failure of Manchin-Toomey means the broader bill still includes Democratic language passed by the Judiciary Committee to establish universal background checks. That language failed to attract a single Republican vote during the panel markup, and conservative Democrats such as Manchin and Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) have said they cannot support the package without changes to the language on background checks.

    The Senate’s failure to expand background checks means the three pillars of Obama’s gun control agenda have stalled. The chamber is expected to also reject proposals to ban military-style semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity ammunition clips.

    Gun control and immigration reform are two of the president’s biggest second-term priorities.

    White House officials refused to acknowledge the likely defeat of Manchin-Toomey right up until the Senate vote.
