    There were no terrorism attacks on the USA…UNTIL NOW…under Obama we’ve had 5…

    Why? Why does Obama PROTECT Islamic Jihadists???

    Who is the Saudi Nationalist that Michelle Obama is so eager to protect??

  • Bobbyv


    Bombing is not BO’s fault but do not forget the left wing nuts who thought 9/11 was an inside job

  • Chriscee

    Remember when the Obama Administration declared “the War on Terror is Over?”

    What a joke!!

    Poll: 68 Percent Say Secure the Border First, Then Make Other Immigration Changes

  • Jeff

    Days before his second term ended in 2009, Bush’s approval rating among all adults was 33 percent positive and 66 percent negative. The new poll found 47 percent saying they approve and 50 percent saying they disapprove. Among registered voters, his approval rating today is equal to President Obama’s, at 47 percent, according to the latest Post-ABC surveys.

    I guess going into hiding and doing nothing after a failed Presidency helped give W a bump in his polls. Now that he opens his library and will be back in the spot light and remind Americans of his lies and horrible years as President. His polls numbers will drop again.

    The other idiot on this board that can’t read a simply poll, needs to get their head examined.

    Isn’t this just precious:

    Obama Safe From $3M Retirement Cap in His Budget


  • Don

    Moving The Ed Show to weekends doesn’t seem very smart now given the ratings hit the primetime lineup took.

    gotta love this one!! OMG I’m dying with laughter –

    Joe Biden Calls Michelle Obama’s New Hairstyle Ghetto Chic

    WASHINGTON – At last night’s White House state dinner honoring former D.C. Mayor Marion Barry, Vice President Biden managed to ignite a bit of a firestorm during his address to the honoree and distinguished guests. After thanking Mayor Barry for his public service and congratulating him on his many accomplishments, the vice president strayed off-script and embarked on a bewildering oration that left some of the dinner guests uneasy and all of the guests confused. Mr. Biden’s discourse began to meander wildly when his subject matter shifted from Marion Barry to Mrs. Obama’s new haircut.

    “I’ve always been a big fan of the Beatles,” Biden said, “so I would be remiss if I didn’t take a moment and compliment the first lady on her lovely new hairstyle. You look beautiful, my dear. That’s a good lookin’ head of hair.”

    Mrs. Obama shyly waved as the dinner guests applauded.

    “It’s a very hip look,” he continued. “I think in the hood they call that ghetto chic. Am I right?” The vice president winked at the first lady.

    Mrs. Obama forced a smile as a few uncomfortable laughs pierced the silence.

    Maybe he’s another one of Obama’s aunts or uncles?

    @Doug Z: I agree with you, but not that one line. >>> The United States government is solely responsible and needs to learn its lesson about political correctness <<<

    The LAST thing in the USA we need is more political correctness. That usually means that he should be happy that illegal aliens (PC version "Undocumented aliens") should walk on in, get on welfare rolls, and Joe & Jill Sixpack have to pay more taxes, give up their own well-earned future plans for some foreign deadbeats.

    I am not against immigration. All four of my grandparents had emigrated from Europe. But, they did it the legal way. Not by crossing over illegally, ahead of every other wanna-be American who are waiting to be called.

    I would just delete that PC word from your vocabulary. PC has not been a friend to most of us. Sure, we shouldn't refer to women as "broads" or use any racial slurs to any ethnic group. Liberals always blame the US when we have acts of terrorism like what happened in Boston. Oh, because we invaded Iraq, or we bombed Afghanistan. The way it's always been, and I'm open to being corrected, is that for every terrorist attack, it's because we did THIS sometime in the past. Truly, the main reason the Arabs hate us is because of our support of Israel.

  • Chriscee

    @ Stan

    Or maybe…”If I had a son..he’d look just like________”

    You fill in the blank!!

  • Sicilian Papa

    I think blaming the white man for the Boston Bombings really hurt MSNBC. They looked foolish when it turned out to be Islamist terrorists. For Four days they told their viewers it had to be the right wing white man. I think all they have left is the extremely hard left viewer. Everyone else scooted over to Fox and CNN.

  • ninja

    @Jeff……………….Who are you trying to fool? If Obama was doing such a great job, Bush’s numbers would be worst than when he left office. Please explain your explanation.

  • Bobbyv

    Joe B. says the strangest things. I’ll stay off my double standard soapbox

  • Van

    I see the ratings are back to normal. Poke a fork in MSNBC, they are done. The paying for cable viewers are tired of the crap coming from MSNBC. Truth in the numbers. You can’t spin it. It’s not voters but viewers. People are starting to wake up with the Obama hang over from the Kool aid they drank. No jobs. More food stamps. I am loosing counts of terrorism attacks on our home land since he took office. Bush kept it over there. Nice…….idiot Democrats who can’t manage a store let alone a government like USA’s

  • Chriscee

    Awww Jeffie are you mad cause Obama is such a massive failure….that the president before him has better ratings than obama does..poor left wing.

    I bet even Peanut Farmer Carter is smiling from ear to ear!!

  • Ralph Hahn

    Right on, Papa. That’s why, when things are returning to normal on the Nielsen front, MSNBC can’t get out of THIRD PLACE. I think it’s just not the people who watch MSDNC for a hearty laugh who went away, people who watched the Peacock’s bastard child regularly just got fed up and left. They tried to defend ther MSNBC, but just couldn’t defend them anymore.

    Except for some of the Yahoos here. LOL

  • mary

    MSDNC did not tell their viewers about Fast and Ferious they will not cover the negative info now out about the FBI and CIA failing to do their jobs regarding the bombing because if it is bad news about their God Obama you will not hear about it on MSDNC
