    Now that the MSM is reporting on matters that the right wing whackos want to hear, they are all the sudden credible to them.

    Pathetic! Ya godda love it!

  • Ralph Hahn

    Now. We stop b1t@h-slapping Moe (Jeffy), Larry (Usahole) and Curly (Mark2dumb) and get serious.

    These additional e-mails being released will not mean much. The Administration is hoping that, by releasing these edited documents, the other whistleblowers won’t come forward. Now, just like everything else, these add’l e-mails will give Obama the chance of saying, again, “I gave you all we had.”

    If it was anything like Nixon’s tapes, it had taken court orders to overrule Nixon’s “Executive Privilage” and released to the public. Obama giving in so soon is NOT going to shoosh this story away.

  • old Mike

    Greg Guttfeld on The Five said if Eric Holder sought to play a role in Dumb and Dumber they could give him both.

  • Doug Z

    Show math, you can not

    show math!!!!!!!!!!!
    Jeff ghost writer for @usahole: WHERE are those facts you were told to produce when you claimed that 2/3rds of FNC viewers were ‘elderly’?

    Maybe you DON’T have any evidence of your claim. So…you’re a liar!

  • Mark2

    Cable News ratings dropped because they’re fixated on the AP and IRS stories.

    Meanwhile, Broadcast News ratings went up.

  • Jeff

    Nothing new with you Ralph Hahnjob and your void of any original thought comments or pathetic attempts of being funny, you are still just a stupid little bitch.

  • Raz

    Wow, Hannity dropped below the 300 mark in the key demo.

    And yet Mark, he did much better then Miss Maddow and everyone else in that time period.

  • Raz

    Now. We stop b1t@h-slapping Moe (Jeffy), Larry (Usahole) and Curly (Mark2dumb) and get serious.

    But sadly it’s just so much fun.

  • Raz

    Jeff ghost writer for @usahole: WHERE are those facts you were told to produce when you claimed that 2/3rds of FNC viewers were ‘elderly’?

    Unless you go by the old…”don’t trust anyone over 30.” So I suppose you could call them ‘elderly.’

  • SteveB

    The reason the MSNBC Ratings are Dropping is because alot of people that thought what MSNBC was reporting to them was Truth.. but after all the Breaking Scandels and cover ups by this administration that have been getting coverage of not only the Alphabet news stations. and that are now appearing on the Internet they Now realize that MSNBC has been reporting nothing but LIES.

  • Chriscee

    Obama is running scared!!

    White House releases 100 pages of Benghazi e-mails

    Wonder how badly these were white washed!!!

  • old Mike

    Posted May 15, 2013 at 2:40 PM

    I am from DE if Obama resignes we will be stuck with a true idiot the vice. Idon’t know which is worse
    Mary, Just doing nothing would be best. Delaware politics is still better than the Chicago style.

  • Chriscee

    Obama is running scared!!

    He’s going to get in front of the cameras again…..turn on the teleprompter and LIE some more to America.

    It’s the Obama way…try to LIE your way out of many scandals

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Raz: I’m sure that everyone except usahole understands that the oldest demo, 35-64. must have some 35 year olds along with 64 years olds. And, 64 isn’t even old. I hope I’m right because I’ll be 64 in five years. :)

  • Chriscee

    Wow…when the left wing is mad….they attack….it’s what jeffie and u-ahole do the best….keep attacking….you just look less and less credible.

  • Mark2

    That’s what CNN gets for flooding their airwaves with nonstop AP and IRS stories.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Chriscee: THis is PURE damage control. Nothing released will be of any significance unless it’s to throw someone under the bus. This is another Obama stalling tactic.

  • Chriscee

    Viewers at msnBS….don’t want their taxes audited….they want to know the truth about Benghazi….and they don’t want their emails scanned.

    Viewers at msnBS are starting to see the CROOKS in the Obama administration. Just remember…if happened to the AP…it can happen to anyone

    If the IRS audited tea party conservatives….it can happen to democrats as well.

    The left wing in America..is unraveling. God it’s fun to watch Obama squirm

  • Chriscee


    I know that…it’s a cover – your – A$$ tv show. He wants to show America that he had nothing to do with these things….

    But..what he forgets…is that time and again…he’s said….

    “I’m the president…and the buck stops with me”

    Obama has STM—short term memory.

  • Chriscee

    Americans are NOT buying what Obama – who couldn’t qualify to be a used car salesmen…is selling
