    Moncon–I got news for you, Bub–your healthcare premiums have gone up 100% every 10 years and the GOP is content with this. That’s why companies all over are dropping and/or reducing healthcare. Obama’s is trying cut down the increases and expand coverage, which he is doing. My premiums are down.

  • Mark2

    NBC ends up as the big winner of the night with over 10 million viewers.

    CNN beats Fox News in the key 25-54 demo for every single hour.


  • usa8888

    How many of you right wingers have your AR-15’s ready for the government takeover…Come back to me…over……

  • usa8888

    Where did all these right wingers go–Rat, I haven’t seen your accomplishments yet……cat still got your tongue?

  • usa8888

    Right wingers–I want all of you to send your money to Beck and Slimebaugh and , by the way, send me a couple bucks, too…..to help Obama move the country ahead….

  • usa8888

    This just in: fox Fake is talking about how much the GOP sponsored sequester is huring Americans…..

  • usa8888

    This just in: Fox Fake News objects to enemy combatant status….Why don’t they object to the right wing GOP FAILING to come up with a jobs and economic plan???? Something important…..

  • usa8888

    Hey, right wing kooks—come in, over, come, over…say something intelligent….oh, well, say something….no, really, it’s time for bed…..

  • usa8888

    I know all the right wingers are assiduously working on the right wing accomplishments….well, that could take a while if Rat is an example….

  • Stan T.

    So, has MSNBC finally stopped insisting the bombers were white Tea party or militia guys? I mean, I think it was Thursday when pictures came out, and while showing the pictures, MSNBC was still insisting the guys were white Tea Party or milita guys…Are their hosts blind as well as stupid? lol

  • Van

    88888, we need Dems to make a balance government and a good laugh but you make them look like a bunch of Occupy Wall Street idiots. You cut and paste the same crap and never answer direct questions. We are all in this crap together and the terrorist aren’t afraid of America any more. No more water boarding and Obama has no back bone. North Korea wants to nuke us, Iran wants to nuke us and Islamic Extremist want to make bombs and blow up the little people. I have my AR-15 ready for when they come to my front door and are trying to hide. It takes 5 seconds to load and empty. it takes the cops 8 minutes. The war on terror is not over, they just know how to work around the political correctness that has been created by the administration. Blame Bill Clinton for 911. He spent his last 2 years defending his actions in Oral Office while the terrorist made their plans. It took longer then the time Bush was in office to make that type of plan. Good thing Gore was not in office when we where attacked. 28 days after 911, we where bombing their camps in Afghanistan.

  • Van

    That should stir things up.

  • usa8888

    Van lives in a delusionary world were up is down and down is up. But I’am glad you have your AR-15 ready for your government takeover…like so many right wing kooks, they talk about “let the cops come to the door and try to take my assault weapons”….the right wing is a joke–that’s why you lost the election!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • usa8888

    Where’s the Rat–I need sunglasses and a new t-shirt…

  • Van

    8888 loves to put words in people’s mouths. You not worth the time to respond any more. Did I say ” government take over” ? When a home invader comes to your house, call 911.

    *White House Endorses Internet Sales Tax…

    *Harry Reid rushes Internet sales tax…

    Wall Street Journal
    The Internet Sales Tax Rush
    Harry Reid and Wal-Mart hope nobody will notice their online revenue raid.

    Every time Congress has taken a serious look at proposals to boost Internet sales taxes, it has rejected them. That’s probably why pro-tax Senators are trying to rush through an online tax hike with as little consideration as possible.

    As early as Monday, the Senate will vote on a bill that was introduced only last Tuesday. The text of this legislation, which would fundamentally change interstate commerce, only became available on the Library of Congress website over the weekend. And you thought ObamaCare was jammed through Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic House in a hurry.

  • Coffee Steve

    Hey Rats?

    Reds & Cubs bottom of the 10th, GREAT GAME

    MSNBC always seems to slip to CNN when a disaster or major story breaks. Seems the silliness and anti american remarks that occurred on MSNBC turned people away compared to the number earlier in the week.

    The huge mistakes made by both networks cost MSNBC a lot more than CNN.

    @! It is a know fact that Fox News is still know to be the channel that non-news watchers go to for big events and tragedies

    Sadly you still have a ways to go on showing some brains Jeff. Your rant about Fox News on a major news day is not a true test of any cable news network. Especially when Fox Newz advertises as the place for politics. Keep trying maybe someday like The Wizard of Oz with the scarecrow you can have a brain too!

  • Doug Z

    Poor Jeff keeps making dumb comments about Fox. I’m glad that Foxs drive people like him insane demonstrated by her kooky out of touch posts
