    Well, we’ve had big ugly clouds passing over all day…I’m guessing in a couple days, y’all back east are gonna see some more rain and snow…

  • usa8888

    Let’s face it, Chriscee–if the GOP were in charge, we would be in Great Depression #2….Chris even admits neither she nor the GOP has any plan for economic and job growth….

  • Bsotgnw


    If this is sucess I’d like to see your definition of failure. I think any sane person would love to see the average of the entire eight years of Bush rather than the average of the entire 5 years of Obama in any metric you want to site.

  • usa8888

    Chriscee is probably one of the right wing religious kooks like Lian Rayn and Insanitroum who are for the Pershonhood Amendment….even the though most Americans are against it….

  • usa8888

    BS–it’s your lack of education which is hindering your logical processes. Bush’s economy was totally phoney based on real estate and bank fraud, and it almost brought down the world’s economy. Surely you don’t endorse that, or do you?

  • usa8888

    Chrsiscee–get your AR-15 ready–Beck maybe thinking it’s time for an overthrow…

  • nosidak

    wow MSNBC seems to really hit the skids since they forced out Big Eddie. to bad.

  • Sicilian Papa

    Personhood, trying to protect innocent little babies from people like Dr. Death in Philly. USA there must be a black hole where your heart should be, monstrous!

  • Chriscee

    Obama and his left wing fringe are coming unglued. Say bye bye to Napolitano Holder and lying Susan Rice!!!

  • usa8888

    This just in: two Harvard professors, who just published a study saying that very high rates of debt relative to GDP is a recipe for disaster, were shown to be in error based on inaccurate math calculations in the paper. MIT economics’ professors were quick to point this out and these two Harvard professors walked away with egg all over them. In fact, austerity during recession/depressions is a recipe for disaster, not spending. Empirically, we wee that Europe has been brought to its knees by austerity and the Euopean central banks are finally beginning to switch to economic stimulus, as is Japan’s BOJ. A corollary is that there was NO need for the sequester which the uneducated right wingers fully endorsed and salivated over. This is another example of the right wing’s ignorance in economic matters and indicative of the fact that their only goal is to ruin the economy in a futile effort to sabotage the massive successes of President Obama.

  • Bsotgnw


    I’ll match my two real degrees against your fourth grade diploma any day.

  • Coffee Steve

    Did somebody step in something? I sure smell a load of crap!

    I thought you took off your shoes again :mrgreen:

    Greeting Earth People, beam me up Scotty there’s no intelligent life down here… Trust me I know, I just looked into a mirror

  • usa8888

    Chriscee is seething with jealousy over the numerous successes of Obama, as pointed out above….

  • usa8888

    The uneducated right wing old white guys on this blog have no place to run other than here because the American people reject their anachronistic ideologies….

  • usa8888

    Rat still hasn’t enough intelligence to state his right wing accomplishments…….1 obstruction..you take it from here

  • Bsotgnw

    Is the press corps getting some guts? Are they finally prepared to challenge the President’s untruthful assertions on facts that are crucial to understanding policy?

    None other than NBC’s David Gregory today pressed Obama’s chief economic advisor, Gene Sperling, whether his boss told the truth in the third presidential debate that “the sequester is not something that I’ve proposed. It is something that Congress has proposed.” Sperling finally wilted under the pressure of tough questioning to admit that “yes, in fact, the sequestration was President Obama’s plan.”


  • Coffee Steve

    Purely a professional observation since I was in the business, and this is NOT intended as a bash or putdown, But MSNBC has a trend going that does not bold well folks.

    CNN is making a definite run at #2 on a regular basis now. Even Maddow has trended down and that actually surprises me.

  • usa8888

    BS–The only two degrees you have are two degrees of temperature….nothing more…

  • usa8888

    Rat–I need that blue t-shirt and some “kool” sunglasses…..

  • Sicilian Papa



    I am sorry my friend but that is the stupidest thing I ever heard. Europe is in trouble because they ran up debts for years and now they are out of money. They had socialist policies that they could not pay for. They borrowed all they could and now they can’t borrow anymore.

    Sound familiar! Geez
