    Chriscee’s mentality is exactly that of the robber barons of the 19th Century. Thanks to right wing finge like her, the dems easily won the elections and will win all future elections if only the GOP Party would say what they really believe (i.e., what Chriscee stated) instead of runnig false advertising, the dems would NEVER lose an election.

  • Chriscee

    What I stated is EXACTLY the truth.

    The government has never and never will create any jobs that adds anything to our GDP.

    That is what the PRIVATE SECTOR businesses are for. And Obama and democrats HATE the private sector business.

    Liberals can deny these facts…but they are the truth. Obama and his administration is STANDING IN THE WAY of private sector job growth. Everyday there are more and more rules and regulations added to the private sector job creators.

    And one of the biggest is OBAMACARE. Like it or not…Obamacare will fail.

    You can only rob from Peter to pay Paul so long…

    I know these things HURT THE MINDS OF THE LIBERAL LEFT WING. To bad so sad.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee, due to her lack of education, doesn’t realize that during depressions or bad recessions, the government–through its fiscal and monetery policies–“rights” the economy, thereby protecting its citizens from monetery and health ruin. If this hadn’t have heppened in the 1930’s and in 2008 (with the bank bailouts), we would be here now. But the right wing is VERY short on educatio, as Chriscee so beautifully exemplifies. Again, if the GOP is ever dumb enough to run on Chriscee’s platform, it’s over for the GOP…..

  • Chriscee

    The feds propping up the economy every single month is also not helping. It gives a false sense and when they finally stop Obama’s lame economy will crash at a rapid pace.

    Again, the government has never and never will have the ability to create any job that adds to our GDP.. those that think they can are delusional.

  • Chriscee

    Mika is the result of a failed liberal education. She is just another rich girl who skated through college because of her name.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee’s right wing agenda would put the US out of business. She shows her lack of education…..the GOP should run on her agenda…….

  • usa8888

    Notice how the GOP never says ANYTHING about how they would grow the economy and create jobs except when they are running their false advertising during campaigns. They have NO plan as Chriscee points out. They should just tell the American people so and proceed to lose elections…..And notice how none of the right wing bloggers here can tell me how cutting spending during a recession will grow the economy or jobs…not one right winger……

  • dana

    Mika’s father worked foreign policy for a failed administration and had a failed foreign policy and they bring him out on her show as an expert critisizing everyones approach to foreign policy…by the way, he is a notorious anti-semite as well…

  • usa8888

    Dana–I know you are proud of Obama and his policies, which are supported by a majority of Americans. I know you are thankful we have a super intellect as President rather than a right wing kook who would bring down the US through no economic policy and extreme backward thinking…..thanks for your support of Obama, who is making so many good things happen for America….

  • dana

    usa1/2:: Hey little fella, please list all your higher learning degrees so we can understand your judging everyones intellect…Maybe you should make yourself available to the Obama Administration so we can prosper and grow right into bankruptsy so we can finally close the chapter on your theories…

  • Chriscee

    And we can see how well the democrats plan of Quantitative Easing is working….IT’S NOT..it gives both the markets and job creators a false sense. We cannot keep using the QE to prop up the economy.

    And when the QE stops….America will be in shambles. And we will place the blame squarely where it belongs…ON OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRATS.

    We need to stop with the massive rules and regulations that on brought onto businesses every single day if America is going to see job growth. And while Obama is president…we will NOT have much job growth.

    1.5 million NEW unemployment claims every single month…IS NOT JOB GROWTH.

  • Chriscee

    @ Dana..

    USA is a small man, acts like he knows it all and actually knows nothing except how to cute and paste from the Obama websites of thinkprogress and move on. Their same old tired and boring rubbish.

  • dana

    chriscee:: Dont aggravate, these lemmings can run but cannot hide from the financial realities of the country. Obamacare will never, ever get off the ground unless they completely break their promise with the American people and drive the costs up for all and still leave people uninsured, and this chriscee will be the game changer on Dems being trusted ever again…and then, Obama will finally have to bow to the reality of cutting entitlements because there is no other choice…sit back and watch, perhaps with a little smirk?

  • Chriscee

    Democrats adore IRA Samuel Einhorn.

    Earth day founder who murdered his girlfriend.

    Just like the democrats…the adore and protect jihad terrorists and murderers

  • Chriscee


    Canadian authorities break up MAJOR TERRORIST PLOT.

  • Chriscee

    Canadian security forces thwarted a plot to blow up a rail line between Canada and the United States and will announce arrests on Monday afternoon, police and intelligence agencies said.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee has no concpt of economics and so we can expect to hear her absurd right wing policies, which Americans rejected overwhelmingly in November. I know deep down Dana admires the intellect of Obama and his accomplishments but is afraid to admit it. He can thank Obama for the US still being in existance after 2008. If the GOP had somehow managed to be in control, we would be in Great Depression #2.

  • usa8888
