    The real news is Obama calls jason Collins because he is gay. Obama can’t take time to send help to Benghazi victims.

    The real news is obamacare will hurt democrats in 2014 election cycle and the senate will turn deep red

    “My name is Jeff and I approved these messages….MMMDERP!!
    Paid for by the Jeff Wing Kook Club

  • Doug Z

    What’s even dumber is that Grasshopper and Jeff does not even care about Left wing DNC accomplishments–he says it’s the government’s job to assist in trying steal for the poor and give to his friends , the economy and job non-growth…Now that’s even MORE stupid…..but the good news is that he is helping elect GOP, thank you, mam…..

  • Doug Z

    The real financial news networks say EVERYONE will be Hurt by Obamacare. In fact, people with healthcare coverage now have already been hurt–85% of everyone…can be dropped for flimsy reasons, kids stay on policy until 26, pre-existing conditions are not a problem anymore,, But can not afford to buy insurance now, fre preventive exams annually, etc.. Yes, Obama is addressing the continued healthcare cost increases, by increaseing the cost. Now the GOP is not content with –100% increase every 10 years…..Jeff is again living in his delusionary world…….
    Don’t forget that WSJ is now owned by the same people who own Fox Fake News….. and a great news paper, unlike the NY times

  • Doug Z

    The left wing kooks in the Senate have obstructed all job growth programs and economic growth programs due to their abject ignorance, but the economy is losing steam in despite of these backward thinking people, most of whom think like Jeff…..

    bject ignorance,—-object ignorance,

    You can not write at all, ignorance. If you are going to write about bject ignorance, please write it correctly

  • Doug Z

    grasshopper and Jeff

    Did Obama do that?

    Black, Hispanic Families Lost Most Wealth Under Obama… what a racist he is , no he just does not care.

    Wealth Gap Among Races Has Widened Since Recession

  • Doug Z

    Something similar may be happening as the housing recovery takes hold. “Some people talk about it in terms of a land grab,” said Professor Hamilton of the New School, as mainly rich Obama’s friends, investors are buying foreclosed homes from disproportionately minority owners. “As the housing market starts to appreciate, some of those minority buyers might not be back.”

  • Chriscee

    Obama: Gitmo ‘needs to be closed’

    No it doesn’t…It’s going to make a fine retirement place for YOU Obama and several other democrat crooks!!

  • Chriscee

    President Obama Claims He “Isn’t Familiar” With Blocking of Benghazi Whistleblower Testimony

    Just proves Obama is a damn liar.

    But we already knew that from the 2008 campaign. Nothing has changed.

  • Jeff

    First Doug says this….The left wing kooks in the Senate have obstructed ALL job growth programs and economic growth programs.

    MINUTES LATER….

    Then he says………Something similar may be happening as the housing RECOVERY takes hold.

    Contradicts himself. Doug you are coming across as a very confused stupid little man.

    Matthew also indicated you were full of $h!t when you switched gears yet again, and incorrectly ranted about our economic growth and state of the economy. You didn’t have an answer……not suprised.

    From Politico

    Democrats fret over Obamacare as 2014 looms

    And during at least two meetings with administration officials last week, Democrats told the White House they don’t like how the law’s implementation and messaging are going.

    It’s no wonder why: On Tuesday, a Kaiser Family Foundation poll showed just 35 percent of Americans hold a favorable view of the law, right as the administration is planning to roll it out.

    All the panic forced President Barack Obama to rush to the law’s defense, saying at a news conference Tuesday: “Even if we do everything perfectly, there’ll still be, you know, glitches and bumps. … And that’s pretty much true of every government program that’s ever been set up.”

    Obama’s goal was to dismiss what he called “all the hue and cry and, you know, sky-is-falling predictions about this stuff.”

    Don’t bet on that happening. Democrats have been fretting about the law since it passed, and they’re not exactly falling in love with it now either.

    Obamacare, Benghazi and HIGH Unemployment is going to be Obama’s demise.

  • Jeff

    Sorry!

    Gitmo is going to be closed before the end of the Obama Administration. Start crying!

  • Jeff

    @President Obama Claims He “Isn’t Familiar” With Blocking of Benghazi Whistleblower Testimony

    Just proves Obama is a damn liar.

    Okaaaaay? Where is the proof?

  • Jeff

    @Democrats fret over Obamacare as 2014 looms
    And during at least two meetings with administration officials last week……..blaaaaa blaaaa blaaaaaa

    You hacked out a good portion of the actual article……ya hack!

    I’m not fretting over any incumbent wanting to get reelected in 2014. You seem to approve of this do-nothing Congress.

  • Matthew

    Matthew also indicated you were full of $h!t when you switched gears yet again, and incorrectly ranted about our economic growth and state of the economy.

    Not quite — sluggish growth is precisely the reason that hyperinflation is unrealistic, and the burden of debt accrued since 2010 is low. I’m not implying we’re on the right track, I’m implying that he’s fear-mongering about the wrong thing. It may be hard for someone to appreciate this on an individual level (particularly if they’re not a ‘producer’), but annual inflation is NOT a desirable macroeconomic trend, and the fact that many commodities are deflating despite the Fed’s policies is a sign of global sluggishness, and almost non-existent growth. Not good.

  • Matthew

    err ^*—- annual DEFLATION is not a desirable trend. i should start proofreading

  • Chriscee

    Denial will get you no place Jeff….except down a river without a paddle…have fun with that!!

  • Jeff

    Your words:
    When? And why do so many investors not agree with you? If hyperinflation is truly on the way, it should be literally impossible for the United States to sell it’s debt, it has been at negative yields since 2010, even on 30-year bonds. In other words, the present state of our sovereign is one in which investors are loaning the government $100 to get back $98 of purchasing power — and if they believed hyperinflation were on the way, the picture would be even more dire than that.

    Why, then, under such circumstances, as our government been able to move in excess of $3 trillion with negative yields (a sum greater than the GDP of all but a handful of countries)? Do you know better than the market? Because all present market factors indicate an expectation of a.) disinflation or b.) mild inflation, with the US Government still being the safest bet in town, or the least terrible choice in a sea of bad choices.

    If that is not a reality check, then what is?

  • Jeff

    @Denial will get you no place Jeff….except down a river without a paddle…have fun with that

    That’s your proof? Not suprised,

  • Matthew

    It’s a reality check on hyperinflation and sovereign debt fear-mongering, but certainly not a positive statement about the trajectory of the U.S. economy. I’m merely saying that he’s panicked about entirely the wrong thing, and the sort of policies he supports will largely worsen that trajectory.
