  • old Mike

    The Amish are exempt from the social security system because of religious convictions. In the big rush to pass and sign Obamacare were they ignored and forced to go through the courts?

  • SteveB

    OH. New numbers out. Turn out the lights at MSDNC. No one is THERE THERE..

  • usa8888

    To the right wing kooks: This has NOTHING to do with Obama. The kooks would like it to involve Obama becasue they have NOTHING to offer–NO PLAN for ANYTHING–the economy, health, jobs, energy, foreign policy. McConnell put it perfectly: get rid of Obama at all costs, even try to ruin the economy by obstruction…but McConnell FAILED. The T-party and right wing are a JOKE to most Americans who favor Obama and his policies. The right wing kooks should feel blessed to have a great president like Obama. Had one of the brain dead CPAC comedy performers been elected, we would be in Great Depression #2.

  • usa8888

    Fox’ ratings show increased numbers of elderly viewers (over 2/3)over 65, with far right leanings). Rupert can’t be happy….

  • Ratboy

    The numbers are laughable! When I talked to my finance guy last week one day I joked with him and said to make sure that I wasn’t invested in anything associated with MSNBC at all cuz I didn’t want to lose my but when they vaporized!

  • Chriscee

    NO one is watching msnBS. Gotta love that.

  • usa8888

    How quickly the right wing kooks forget the accomplishments of Obama:
    1. Passed Health Care Reform. Provides free well-care checks ups. Keeps kids on parents’ policies until 26 years old. Stops insurance from dropping people for no legitimate reason. Eliminates pre-existing conditions from causing exclusion from policies.

    2. Passed the Stimulus, saving the country’s economic system
    3. Passed Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act over the objections of right wing kooks

    6. Got rid of Osama bin Laden and other top terrorists
    7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry and saved millions of jobs

    9. Repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”
    10. Passed Credit Card Reforms
    11. Expanded Health Coverage for Children by signing the 2009 Children’s Health Insurance Authorization Act.
    12. Expanded Hate Crimes Protections by signing The Matthew Shepard/Hate Crimes Prevention Act in 2009.
    13. Expanded Stem Cell Research in 2009 by eliminating the Bush-era restrictions.
    14. Passed Fair Sentencing Act in 2010.
    15. Nominated and obtained confirmation for 2 more Women to the U.S. Supreme Court.
    16. Achieved New START Treaty
    17. Reversed Bush Torture Policies
    18. Increased Support for Veterans

    22. US Stock Market at all time highs
    23. Minimal inflation rates
    24. Corporate profits at all time highs

  • Mikey O

    WOW headline news beat Chris matthews

  • Chriscee

    Obama and democrats won’t be happy…that the older people are watching more of Fox News. That isn’t a good sign for democrats come 2014….the elderly vote….and they won’t be voting democrat. Once Obama-less-care takes full affect seniors will be left out to dry.

  • usa8888

    The IMPORTANT thing, as Mitch McConnell knows only too well, is that Obama is President!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, thankfully, most Americans support him and his policies…..

  • usa8888

    The right wing, like the Birch Society, is going extinct….

  • Chriscee

    I’ll just get it out of the way now..

    The fantasy that the left wing DEMoKKKrat live in is truly entertaining.

    1. Passed Health Care Reform. Ended pre-conditions; keeps kis on parents’ policies until 26 years old; insurance can’t cancel policy for unfounded reasons; gives FREE preventive health check-up, etc……..THAT NO ONE WANTS!! AND IS GOING TO COST TRILLIONS IN TAXPAYER MONIES!!

    2. Passed the Stimulus, saving the country’s economic system…….THAT DIDN’T DO A THING….EXCEPT WASTER NEARLY 1 TRILLION DOLLARS IN TAXPAYER MONIES.

    3. Passed Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act over the objections of right wing kooks….THAT IS NOW SAID TO BE AN EPIC FAILURE…Washington Post calls it a FAILURE!!

    4. Ended the War in Iraq…….WE STILL HAVE TROOPS IN IRAQ. AND STILL FACING ENEMY FIRE EVERYDAY.

    5. Began Draw-down of Afghanistan Troops …..OBAMA SENT EVEN MORE TROOPS THAN BUSH DID. WE WILL NEVER BE COMPLETELY OUT OF IRAQ OR AFGHANISTAN…THANKS TO OBAMA.

    6. Got rid of Osama bin Laden and other top terrorists…….NAVY SEAL TEAM 6 GOT RID OF BIN LADEN. HAD CLINTON DONE HIS JOB AND CAPTURED BIN LADEN WHEN HE HAD HIM CORNERED – INSTEAD OF CHASING MONIC THROUGH THE WHITE HOUSE..PERHAPS 9/11 WOULDN’T HAVE HAPPENED.

    7. Turned Around U.S. Auto Industry and saved millions of jobs……GM STILL OWES TAXPAYERS 65 BILLION DOLLARS….ALL THE WHITE GM GIVES AN ENGLISH SOCCER LEAGUE $600 MILLION DOLLARS FOR A NEW STADIUM.

    8. Passed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in 2009 for Women………AND YET OBAMA AND PEOPLE LIKE HARRY REID, BERNIE SANDERS BARBARA MIKULSKI (D., MD.), PATTY MURRAY (D., WASH.), DEBBIE STABENOW (D., MICH.), DIANNE FEINSTEIN (D., CALIF.) AND BARBARA BOXER (D., CALIF.)—THREE PAY THEIR FEMALE STAFF MEMBERS SIGNIFICANTLY LESS THAN MALE STAFFERS.

    9. Repealed “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”……NOBODY REALLY CARES!! ….IF YOU WANT TO BE GAY…BE GAY….WHO CARES…NO ONE!!

    10. Passed Credit Card Reforms…….AND BIG BANKS STILL BILKING TAXPAYERS AND CUSTOMERS OUT OF BILLIONS!! SO IT DIDN’T DO A DAMN THING.

    11. Expanded Health Coverage for Children by signing the 2009 Children’s Health Insurance Authorization Act…….COST TAXPAYERS BILLIONS PER USUAL FOR OBAMA POLICIES

    12. Expanded Hate Crimes Protections by signing The Matthew Shepard/Hate Crimes Prevention Act in 2009…….HATE CRIMES STILL HAPPEN EVERYDAY…..DIDN’T DO MUCH TO HELP

    13. Expanded Stem Cell Research in 2009 by eliminating the Bush-era restrictions…….AGAIN AT THE COST OF SOMEONE ELSE.

    14. Passed Fair Sentencing Act in 2010. SO OBAMA CAN PROTECT DRUG USERS AND OTHER CRIMINALS…HE THINKS THEY’LL VOTE FOR HIM. KEEP THEM HIGH….IS OBAMA’S PLAN…

    15. Nominated and obtained confirmation for 2 more Women to the U.S. Supreme Court………TWO FAR LEFT WING NUTS….

    16. Achieved New START Treaty…….ANOTHER OF OBAMA’S DUMB PLANS TO DISARM AMERICA….THAT’S WHAT HE WANTS…MAKE IT SO AMERICAN CANNOT NO LONGER DEFEND HERSELF. OBAMA HATES OUR MILITARY.

    17. Reversed Bush Torture Policies….NOW THAT’S HILARIOUS…..OBAMA USES DRONES LIKE A DRUG ADDICT TAKES PILLS.

    18. Increased Support for Veterans……..VETERANS DIDN’T GAIN A THING FROM OBAMA. THEY ARE WORSE OFF TODAY THAN EVER BEFORE.

    19. Kicked Banks Out of Federal Student Loan Program……..AND MADE TAXPAYERS PAY AGAIN!!

    20. Recapitalized Banks……….OBAMA PUT MONEY BACK INTO THE HANDS OF GREEEDY BANKSTERS WHO THEN LAUNDER MONEY FOR OBAMA. IT’S THE DEMOCRATS WAY!!

    21. 32 consecutive months of employment growth after huge employment downturns at end of Bush’s term. …..1.5 MILLION NEW UNEMPLOYMENT CLAIMS EVERY SINGLE MONTH UNDER OBAMA….AND SCANT JOB CREATION!! YEP…THAT’S THE OBAMA WAY OF DOING THINGS….KILL JOBS!!

    22. US Stock Market at all time highs………….STOCK MARKET IS UP BECAUSE FED HAVE PUMPED 3.7 TRILLION INTO THE ECONOMY UNDER OBAMA……ECONOMY STILL LAGS FAR BEHIND. OBAMA DOESN’T HAVE A CLUE AS TO HOW TO FIX ANYTHING.

    23. Minimal inflation rates………………INFLATION RATES ARE DOWN BECAUSE THEY DO NOT INCLUDE THINGS LIKE GROCERIES PRICES AND GASOLINE PRICES IN THE NUMBERS. IF THEY DID..THE INFLATION RATE WOULD BE OUT THE ROOF.

    24. Corporate profits at all time highs…….OBAMA’S BUDDIES IN HIGH PLACES STILL KNOCKING BIG BUCKS AND HUGE SALARIES…..AND MONEY LAUNDERING FOR OBAMA.

    25. Blunted right wing GOP kooks’ obstruction strategies………………….OBAMA IS HELPING THE GOP WIN BACK THE SENATE AND KEEP THE HOUSE. I HOPE HE KEEPS IT UP.

    26. Stopped right wing GOP’s effort to end Medicare and Social Security………..OBAMA IS NOW IN FAVOR REFORMING MEDICARE AND SOCIAL SECURITY. HE SAID SO HIMSELF. HIS FIX WOULD TRIM SOCIAL SECURITY FOR THOSE THAT RECEIVE THEM

    27. Helped reverse the backward thinking of the right wing GOP…………..OBAMA HAS ACTUALLY HELPED THE GOP MOVE FORWARD….AND THEY LEAVING DEMOCRATS FAR BEHIND.

  • van

    88888….what about MSNBC taking 3rd straight across the board in your favorite demo? Poor Rachael Madcow.

  • Chriscee

    By Obama’s own admission……He is the most CLUELESS president EVER.

    I have no knowledge of changing of talking points on Benghazi.(when they clearly sent Susan Rice out to say it was a video that prompted the violence.)

    I have no knowledge of IRS targeting the Tea Party. (when now it’s revealed Obama was told in April)

    I have no knowledge of DOJ snooping on the Associated Press.

    Obama just plain has ZERO KNOWLEDGE. He may have a Degree from Havard and Columbia…but he is the dumbest president EVER!

    DOES THIS WHITE HOUSE KNOW ANYTHING???

    Time for Obama, Susan Rice, Eric Holder and IRS Heads to follow Hillary’s lead and GET OUT!!

    Obama has CHECKED OUT…..(did he really ever check in??)

  • Ratboy

    Geee Dung Dung, where’s Jeffie when you need him? :shock:

  • usa8888

    Chriscee is the right winger who says the gov should NOT assist the economy and job creation. Wish her worthless party would run on that line…..

  • Mikey O

    I see Obama’s was more worried about getting re-elected. He had to get a good night’s rest for the Trip to Vegas in the morning. He couldnt worry about a little think called Benghzai where people died.

  • usa8888

    This just in: Telsa Electric Motors stock shares are skyrockieting, according to 4 financial news services 9don’t know yet about fox Fake Business–where fox makes money and viewers are taken to the cleaners)….

  • Bobbyv

    So again, he is this great President who should be on Mt Rushmore but knows nothing about anything bad that happens on his watch and is responsible for nothing…..but always gets credit for something good? Do I have it right??

  • usa8888

    Chriscee is helping us elect democrats by exctremely foolish statements like “nobody wants free health check ups and nobody wants elimination of pre-conditions and nobody wants kids on parents’ policies until 26, etc..”
    Thanks, Chris, for you foolish statements…
