    Kinda wonder when it will hit USA, with HIS lack of a coherent thought in his rants, Rebublicans don’t have to smear O.

    there’s no there there

    “Obama has yet to demonstrate that he is particularly smart or competent in things that matter. He certainly doesn’t learn from history or his own mistakes.” -Rush

    “The current inflow of uneducated poor people — with no upward mobility — is nirvana for the Democrats.” -Rush

  • JacobYates

    I’m still awaiting your response to my comment on the previous page. Any time now.

    Day five prove your post
    You my friend just lie

    WHERE IS THE EVIDENCE you should have to back up your own wild statements about FNC’s audience being 2/3rds ‘elderly’??? C’MON! It’s been almost a week since I challenged you to produce proof of your statements. Not to do so would mean a) You don’t have any legit source material, or (likely) b) you made it up as you make everything else? And, no BS about MY MATH. I never said 2/3rds or anything like you have done. Any child above 6 can see that you just change the subject as if people here can’t read what I write.

    Be a man for a change! Own up to your rantings.

    “Did you hear that the president is gonna refocus on jobs? Yeah, I just heard. He’s gonna embark on another campaign-type tour, and that’s the word in the headline: ‘Refocus.'” -Rush

  • SnapTie

    Of course Obama had no idea of the IRS scandal until he heard about it in the media or something.

    Of course.

  • Doug Z

    that has to leave a Mark2

    Two Congressmen are asking the Treasury Department if it inappropriately scrutinized conservative-owned businesses the same way it targeted Tea Party groups filing for tax-exempt status.

    Republicans Mike Kelly (PA-03) and Jim Renacci (OH-16) circulated a letter Thursday requesting Treasury Secretary Jack Lew to release documents detailing the process and methodology the Automotive Task Force used to shut down General Motors dealerships in 2009 during the automotive industry crisis.

  • old Mike

    Rasmussen Reports has likely voters favorable to Obama at 48% and 51% unfavorable. 26% strongly approve him and 39% strongly disapprove. 57% want IRS want IRS offenders jailed or fired. I expect to see a bigger change in the next month. There was only a small change in the past month.

  • JacobYates

    @Doug Z
    I just left a comment asking him the same thing and he hasn’t left a comment since then. He probably won’t comment again until our questions are drowned out by the sea of incoming comments.

  • lbsles

    “There’s just one remaining question that I have been asking about Benghazi for months: ‘Where was Obama during all of it?’

    That’s the one thing that nobody knows. Where was Obama when four Americans were under assault and ultimately being killed?

    And there doesn’t seem to be any curiosity inside official Washington.” -Rush

  • SnapTie

    Acting IRS Commissioner Steve Miller,and out going Commissioner Calls Conservative Targeting Scandal “Horrible Customer Service”…

  • Mark2

    The more I listen to O’Reilly, the more Liberal he’s starting to sound.

  • lbsles

    “It turns out, ladies and gentlemen, Benghazi may be too big to bury.” -Rush

  • SteveB

    This place is so much nicer without the Likes of Mfitz here..
    Now if only the Mods would do us a favor and Remove the Little brother

  • SnapTie

    Outgoing IRS Chief: We Need A “Bigger Budget” To Prevent Future Targeting Of Conservatives…


  • lbsles

    “So the IRS that had to apologize today for targeting tax-exempt groups with ‘Tea Party’ and ‘Patriot’ in the names — and giving ’em trouble and hassling them — is the same bunch that’s gonna administer Obamacare fines in a fair and apolitical way. Ha-ha-ha-ha! Right.” -Rush

  • lbsles

    “The idea that this Tea Party targeting by the IRS is something somebody just discovered and only recently learned about is silly. This was known years ago. In fact, the IRS commissioner Lois Lerner has admitted that all this was going on as far back as 2011. The New York Times praised the practice.” -Rush

  • SteveB

    688k Democrats would Rather Watch ORielly then Watch Chris Hayes.. They Trust him more then the Extreme Liberal over at MSDNC..
