    the stupidity continues…..

    Today, the Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 15,056, an all-time record. For one conservative group, this can only mean one thing: it’s time to impeach President Obama.
    That was the message Capitol Hill Daily, a conservative publication based out of Baltimore, sent to Citizen United’s listserv today. They accused President Obama of “wreck[ing] the stock market” and asked readers to take a poll about whether he should be impeached as a result..

  • Chriscee

    Awww Jeffie is angry that Obama get poor ratings verses an empty chair!!

    Suck it up big boi….Obama is pretty much a has been

  • Jeff

    They are tearing each other apart…..my money is on Rubio,

    On Tuesday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) joined the growing chorus of conservative criticism of the Heritage Foundation’s new anti-immigrant report, which claims the Senate’s immigration bill would cost the economy $6.3 trillion. Rubio denounced the report’s assumption that all immigrants will forever be poor and uneducated, pointing to how his own family flourished after entering the U.S.:

  • Chriscee

    Again..the dow jones is loving bernake feeding Wall Street 85 Billion dollars a month…once that stops…and it will soon…

    THE DOW WILL PLUNGE and you left wingers will have nothing left…

  • Chriscee

    Jeff you really need to visit other sites than Think Progress, Media Matters and Moveon

    You clearly need to get OUT more often.

  • Mark2

    Posted on Mediaite in case you want to read the story.

    Sources close to Cumulus Media told Radio Ink: 48 of the top 50 network advertisers “exclude Rush and Hannity” orders; and “every major national ad agency has same dictate.”

    Ouch!!! It looks like Rush might not have his contract renewed. He’s done, stick a fork in him.

  • Jeff

    I don’t trust your polls, you misrepresent the numbers and publish outdated polls to suit what ever insane topic you conjure up.

    Your Gallup poll is a prime example of the ONE question topic that you use along with the right wing whack balloons to further make yourself look like a complete @ss……On that front I say MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

  • Chriscee

    Left wingers are upset that Wealthy investors are funding Gabrielle Gomez’ run for the Senate in John Kerry’s former seat.

    I guess the left wingers FORGOT all about the wealthy investors that funded Barack Obama

  • Chriscee

    I am so sorry Jeffie…that you cannot read.

    Are you sure you’re not USA??? If you’re not..then NEITHER ONE OF YOU CAN READ.

    Fox News Covers For White Christian Terrorists

    Remember the other day when a terrorist plot was uncovered in Minnesota and the white Christian suspect was apprehended? And remember how subsequent to the arrest Fox News aired wall-to-wall reports about how white Christians ought to be surveilled in their communities and churches; how they should be denied visas; how they should be profiled by law enforcement; and how their ties to right-wing extremists should be investigated?

    Yeah, neither do I. The truth is that Fox has given this story about Buford Rogers little attention. And worse, they have almost completely ignored the fact that this alleged terrorist is a white member of right-wing militia groups. Fox has even avoided using a picture of Rogers, which would have made his ethnicity apparent.

    Given how Fox News is so notoriously sensationalistic and inclined toward hyper-melodramatic presentations of crime and terror-related news items, it might seem curious that they have sought to downplay this story. However, if you know Fox, it would not be surprising that their editors would suppress this item. It does not further their agenda to stigmatize Muslims and other “foreign” types as the primary instigators of terrorism.

    None of Fox’s primetime programs even mentioned this arrest. And don’t hold your breath waiting for Fox to report that a majority of domestic terror incidents since 1995 were committed by right-wing extremists. The “fair and balanced” network is only interested in demonizing dark-skinned infidels, not wholesome, white, Jesus-loving, patriots.

  • Chriscee

    Awww Jeffie apparently the left wing loves him too…NO ONE is reporting on that…..

    you need to get out of that chair..and OUT of that house..for fresh air….your brain is clearly CLOGGED!!

    He’s from Minnesota…he no doubt adores the muslim brotherhood of Barack Obama.

    Minnesota has a very very large population of muslim. Just look where keith ellison comes from.

  • Chriscee

    jeff you are wayyy out of your league. Go back to school and get a decent education….come back when you’ve grown up and learned something. Thanks.

  • Sicilian Papa



    One guy in Minnesota gets busted by Holder’s Justice Department to cover for all their other failures. What a joke, come on man, we don’t even know that much about this guy yet. Was he part of a wider group planning terrorist attacks? Was he planning terror attacks or some nut making pipe bombs?

    Jeff, we know Holder is looking for white Christian boggie men where ever he can find them. Holder’s Justice Department was asleep in Boston. Holder is one of most political and corrupt individuals ever to walk the halls of the Justice Department. The left is desperate to smear all conservative white men, good luck.

  • Doug Z

    Mayor Richard Daley the first, said they are watching MSNBC in He– where he is at.They are number one in H-ll

  • Sicilian Papa

    They announce the arrest just as Benghazi is exploding. NBC News made sure to report the Minnesota guy while doing a whitewash report on Benghazi.

  • Sicilian Papa

    NBC News made sure to report the Minnesota guy just the way Holder and his corrupt Justice Department wrote the script. Let’s wait and see how much of it is true. Holder will do and say anything to promote his political agenda of blaming the white man for all that is wrong in America.

    Those left wing websites are as full of inaccurate information as some of the right wing websites. The left wing websites are desperate to find a white boogie man after Benghazi and Boston.

  • Doug Z

    Democrats said the world would love Obama


  • Chriscee

    Obama: US has a ‘moral obligation’ to help end civil war in Syria

    Oh…..but where was the MORAL obligation back in 2001 when GW Bush felt he had a MORAL OBLIGATION to help the people of Iraq???

    Lefties are so damn hypocritical.

  • Doug Z

    usa0000000 and his ghost writer, Jeff are not here yet. They will come at the same time, for they are one.

  • Coffee Steve

    Posted on Mediaite in case you want to read the story.

    You left out just a wee bit on the Rush and Hannity story, and yes, its also included in the mediaite story

    “That statement is completely inaccurate. A number of the top spenders in the medium use talk radio to promote their brands and sell product, and many of them use The Rush Limbaugh Show and The Sean Hannity Show as the driving force of their marketing efforts.”

    Oh I almost forgot, 48 out of the 50 top advertisers probably wouldn’t place ads on radio programs anyway.
