    @Jacob Yates…..

    This is a website that deals in cable news ratings…Those cable news outlets have OPINION shows….therefore WE voice our opinions.

    And Yes…I do use talking points…to counter the left wing LIES.

    If you don’t like what I type, as I’ve told the left wing…do me and yourself a huge favor…do NOT read them…ty

  • Chriscee

    @Jacob Yates

    That was a headline from a News OUTLET….look it up.

  • Ratboy

    All the idiot D’s forget that there is video and audio and what they say is opposite of what has been said!!! DUH!!

    Barbara Boxer: ‘The Benghazi Scandal’ ‘Starts With Republicans’ Who Cut Funding For Embassy Security

    In a speech on the Senate floor on Tuesday, Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) said that Republicans in Congress should look into a mirror when asking why the attack on an American consulate in Benghazi was as deadly as it was. She said that House Republicans who voted to cut security funding for overseas embassies are directly responsible for the lack of security personnel at that outpost. Boxer’s claim is contradicted by testimony delivered before a Congressional Oversight Committee hearing last week

    Carney: White House Had No Idea Justice Department Was Secretly Monitoring Phones of Reporters

    As I said….I am waiting for Obama’s “I am NOT a crook speech.”

    It’s coming!!

  • Chriscee


    yeah…didn’t cut any funding…because that budget never passed!!

    Boxer has such SHORT TERM MEMORY.

  • msnbcboycott

    In case everyone is wondering why msnbc ratings are down. Many of us boycotted them when they took Ed Schultz out of prime-time line up and we went to CNN. It’s gonna get worse, cuz bloviating Joe, let us know today they don’t want us anymore. So they abandoned their base. So we are abandoning them. So now you know the rest of the story! Guess that makes yall happy! As much as I don’t like Fox, they stay loyal to their base, msnbc just skipped out on us. :(

  • Ratboy

    @ SteveB

    Happy wife…..Happy life!!!!!

  • JacobYates

    @Chriscee and usa8888
    Do you guys just sit at your computers waiting for news to pop up so you can post it here? Or do you have all of this stores and you just space out your posts? I’m not saying you guys don’t have a right to argue, I’m saying that you can agree on the websites of these networks and you’ll be able to educate more people than you could on a TV ratings website.

    Chriscee IRS Officials in Washington DC Helped Target Tea Party Groups
    It’s getting deeper for Obama.

    This might back fire on the dumbocrats in the Senate.

    Senate Democrats: Nuclear option for filibuster is back on the table
    By Alexander Bolton – 05/13/13 08:11 PM ET

    Senate Democrats frustrated with the GOP’s blocking of a string of President Obama’s nominees are seriously weighing a controversial tactic known as the “nuclear option.”

    The option — which would involve Democrats changing Senate rules through a majority vote to prevent the GOP from using the 60-vote filibuster to block nominations — was raised during a private meeting Wednesday involving about 25 Democratic senators and a group of labor leaders.

    @Jeff – @jim S(ucka)


    Yes, you should seek it along with all the right wing whackos that sadly have their heads in the @ss of a unicorn beliefs.

    Thanks for proving my point, couldn’t have done it better myself

  • lbsles

    @ JacobYates, If you do not like the way the moderators run their web site then I suggest that you take your baseball mitt and bat and go home. The ball belongs to the moderators.

    They allow most things so we do it.

    Have a wonderful life.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I want to more about the IRS and NAACP in 2004. This is being used as a defense to harass numerous conservative groups.

    O. knows nothing about the Justice Department, the IRS, who sent Susan Rice on all those Sunday talk shows. No one ever held this guy accountable for anything. He seems rattled and just keeps on lying. He is only digging himself deeper and deeper. Does he know just how ridiculous he looks when he goes out there and lies?

    The low-info crowd will probably buy it. He would have to insult Beyonce and Jay Z., maybe Justin Timberlake or some other Hollywood weenie for those fools to turn on him.

    Usa8888? Does the gas price start to go down today? It jumped from 3.58 to 3.89 here in west central Illinois in one week. In Chicago the price is the highest in the nation.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has to be the BOZO of the year !

    Pelosi: ObamaCare ‘largely responsible’ for bringing down deficit
    By Daniel Strauss – 05/14/13 07:51 AM ET

    “Many of the initiatives that he passed are what are coming to bear now, including the Affordable Care Act,” Pelosi said in an interview with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. “The Affordable Care Act is bringing the cost of health care in our country down in both the public and private sector. And that is what is largely responsible for the deficit coming down.”

    The CBO reported last week that the federal budget deficit declined in the first seven months of fiscal year 2013 compared to 2012.

    Pelosi’s comments come as the administration begins to roll out their healthcare reforms amid controversy and pushback from GOP lawmakers who have vowed to undo the law.

    Republicans and Democrats have sparred over the effect of the healthcare reform law on the nation’s budget, with GOP lawmakers warning it will increase the deficit.

    From Politico:

    Journalists fume over DOJ raid on AP

    Journalists on Monday called the news the Justice Department seized records from phone lines assigned to Associated Press offices and its reporters over a two month period “chilling” and a “dragnet to intimidate the media.”

    The AP reported the Justice Dept. obtained records that listed incoming and outgoing calls and the duration of those calls for work and personal phone numbers of AP reporters and phone lines for AP offices in New York, Hartford, Conn. and Washington, as well as the main number for AP reporters in the House of Representatives press gallery.

    The government seized records — which listed incoming and outgoing calls and the call’s length — for more than 20 separate lines assigned to the AP and its reporters, according to the AP.

    Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren told POLITICO in an email that the DOJ’s seizure “sounds like a dragnet to intimidate the media,” not a criminal investigation.

    This, I suspect, is only the beginning.

  • SteveB

    Last week Gas here in Washington State was 3.59 a gallon. Today 3.98 a gallon. Yea those gas prices are falling fast…..

  • Chriscee

  • Cathy

    I hope everyone is doing well.

    Ratboy – no snow but it’s still so cold in Michigan. Where is that climate change? I want to open my pool.

    Chriscee – I’ve heard at least one person on all of the news networks use the “I” word (impeachment) over the weekend.

  • Chriscee

    As I said in the other postings @SP

    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!


    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??)
