  • Joe

    5 democrats did vote against it but almost all Republicans voted against it. But they are at no fault. Right Ralphie boy? There’s Ralph being neutral as usual. Shame on you for being so partisan with something so important. And everyone knows the Republicans in the House would have never passed anything too. Ralph is a delusional nut who needs to get help quick. I’m sure all of you people like Ralphie boy want no gun laws until someone in your family gets shot. Then we’ll see how fast you change your minds. Pathetic.

  • Jeff

    Umm Stan T. Hate to break it to ya, maybe you failed history. The Senate passed Obama ACA with 60 votes under the process I mentioned above, because the GOP in the Senate would of played the same procedural games but didn’t have the seat or the votes at the time.

  • Bobbyv


    As I mentioned the other day, if the person(s) are right wing then all right wing people will be blamed….. I don’t agree. But, the right wing will feel responsible and defensive beyond belief.

    Agree with that

    @Dana “Why watch Hayes when…….

    Wait, I thought Maddow was………

    Jim is such a piece of garbage! Useless garbage!!

  • Chriscee

    According to an ABC-Washington Post poll 80% of Americans want stricter boarder patrol and to try to reduce illegal immigration!

  • Mark2

    Wow…Anderson Cooper beat Bill O’Reilly in the key demo.


  • Matthew

    Wow…Anderson Cooper beat Bill O’Reilly in the key demo.

    Winning “the demo” only has any value in the context of it’s value to advertisers, and advertisers aren’t going to be looking at single day ratings outliers that are in response to extraordinary tragedies. This is pointless

  • Ralph Hahn

    I guess this guy “Joe” doesn’t like me, huh??? ROFLMBO. Who cares?

    I was laughing all the way until this jagoff says something to me about someone in my family getting shot. That’s LOW and borderline terroristic threat.

    Better watch, Joe. You are very hateful and I know that you are posting with a different name.

    Better apologize. The Lord God is watching.

    Seems people got a dose of BillbO trying to make political light of this horrible event and they tuned out. Fox plunged big time the day after….

  • usa8888

    To Chriscee who keeps making illogical and unfounded statements. It’s the United State who lost, Ms. right wing fringe, because 90% of the American people want background checks. Ms. Right winger–you stand with he drug cartels, anarhcists, and mobsters who supported the Chief Clown at the NRA and you in their abject disregard for the Amiercan people’s whishes….

  • usa8888

    Chriscee is again mis-stating polls results–wish this right wing kook had an MBA….

  • Ralph Hahn

    People accusing Chriscee “mis-stating poll (not polls) results” oughta know. He does it every single day. So do the other three libtards. Chriscee will back up her poll results will facts, something that you and the other terds never do!

  • Mark2

    The vote today on the Background checks will be very advantageous for the Democrats in the 2014 elections being that 90% of Americans were in favor and the vast majority of Republicans voted against the measure.

  • Ratboy

    I think I figured out why MSDNC’s ratings are so low! All the loons that used to watch are here the last couple of nights! :shock:

  • Mark2

    Fox News, CNN, and the New York Post have blundered big time in the last 2 days.

    NBC News with Brian Williams has done the best job so far.

  • Ralph Hahn

    Senate Democrats f’ed up today. I see less of any alleged advantage for the Dems in next year’s elections. Harry Reid, the so-called “leader” of the Demo Senate majority, voted AGAINST background checks. Why, because the people who live in his state, Nevada, LOVE their guns. Dreamers. lol

    More lies! The Only ABC poll that shows 80% in any poll regarding the Immigration issue: Employers to check immigration status.

    Not too bright!!

  • Jeff

    Somebody is missing a sooooooock!

  • Ralph Hahn

    >>> Fox News, CNN, and the New York Post have blundered big time in the last 2 days.

    NBC News with Brian Williams has done the best job so far. <<<

    What a giant suck-up! NBC is the official network of Obama and the Democrat party.
    I understand that instead of another huge Christmas tree (or have the PC-Police changed the name to Holiday Tree?) in Rockefeller Center will be a ten-story high Obama, looking down on us. Instead of lies, the giant Obama will be decorated with all of his campaign lies and other broken promises he made to the American People since the mid-2000's.
