You're full of crap as usual Carol. NBC is out after ratings, not glorifying anyone. Hillary Clinton is a compelling character having been First Lady, US Senator and Secretary of State. Nobody's going to watch something they consider a sugar coated cheer fest NBC knows it. I'm sure that the characterization of Mrs. Clinton will show warts and all.
As for the Republican boycott, who cares. The last Republican debates were a clown show with the only candidate that showed he had it together was John Huntsman who was doomed to lose because he was actually sane.
Hell more people tuned in to "Here Comes Honey Booboo" than the Republican Convention the night Romney and Ryan were on.
The only thing compelling about the Hil-Bily is her voice. She is a pushy and obnoxious broad. Ask the people in Park Ridge? Warts? that broad is an open sore.. I wouldn't vote for her for dogcatcher in her own hometown.. Because she would be chasing herself.

Sure Carol you obviously think it's just peachy that insurance companies can pick and choose who they want to cover. You think it's all right that when one of their subscribers has the audacity to actually get sick they can use every trick in the book to deny or delay payment. It's okay by you when a cancer patient either has to discontinue chemotherapy or go bankrupt paying out of pocket because of an arbitrary lifetime cap.
You're an idiot Carol!
Gee Whiz, Petey, those people are called underwriters. So.. you must be the idiot. They assess the risk and decide whether the company will take it. You better stay in school, you're having a difficult time understanding?

Obama was up to his old divide and conquer tricks yesterday.

What kind of president would think - much less say out loud - that their opposing party's "holy grail" was to make sure 30 million people didn't have health care?

Does he not know 70% of Americans and a significant number in their own party also believe it's a disaster waiting to happen?

Does he not know the CBO estimated 30 million people are going to remain uninsured under Obamacare?

Does he not know there are going to be fewer physicians, more people paying higher premiums, younger people bearing the brunt of the costs and part-time employment rising to unprecedented numbers?

Who is this man? And how did he ever become a leader of anything - much less our country?

The Law of the Wild West
'Stand your ground' laws cause baseless killings and make no one safer
A recent Texas A&M University study took a look at crime in more than 20 states that passed some version of "stand your ground"-type laws from 2000 to 2010. Researchers found no decrease in crimes like robbery, burglary and aggravated assault, but they did find an 8 percent spike in reported murders and non-negligent manslaughter.
Yet while "stand your ground" statutes have allowed hundreds of admitted killers to walk free, the race of the victim plays a major factor in who is acquitted. Another study, published last year by the Urban Institute, found that when white shooters kill black victims, nearly 36 percent of the resulting homicides are deemed justifiable, yet when black shooters kill white victims, only 3 percent were ruled justifiable. An investigation by the Tampa Bay Times found that in Florida, defendants claiming "stand your ground" are far more successful if the victim is black. The paper found that 73 percent of those who killed a black person walked free, versus 59 percent of those who killed a white person.
"Stand your ground" laws allow the perpetrator's perception of fear to determine whether or not deadly force is considered justifiable in the eyes of a jury. In most cases, the only evidence they have to evaluate is the word of the person who survives. Once you trade empirical evidence for subjective feelings like trust and empathy, you immediately inject potential bias into a decision.

white people kill black people?
not according to the right wing media.

HET STUPID! It turns out that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was into white supremacy.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev was understood to have read articles that argued 9/11 and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombings were government conspiracies, along with an article on "the rape of our gun rights".
He was one of you.
Was there any warnings for the Boston Marathon bombing? No. Was there any warning prior to 9/11? Hell yes?
Are you an idiot? Yes you are.
Okay, whoever plucked you out of that sandbar or pointy rocks, needs to put you back asap.

Obama was so full of it yesterday, it was hard to digest it all. But looking back over the transcripts, it's now easier to sort it out.
On being asked about any suspects for the 9/11 terrorist attack, he said "I also said that we'd get bin Laden and 'I' didn't get him in 11 months."
Notice the self reference "I" when, in fact, it took federal agents five years to get him and Obama had nothing to do with it except come off the golf course in time to see the Seals kill him.
There's still more.

GOP Rep. to ‘Birther Princess’:‘Honestly, I Don’t Even Give a S**t’

The video then cuts to Mullin saying he’s “not defending this guy,” before asking audience members whether they have “ever seen those Christians that are on the street corners that are screaming scriptures at cars as they drive by?”

“I believe they’ve got great intentions, I believe, honestly that they’re Christian individuals,” Mullin said.“But let me ask you something, are they doing any good? No, they’re not. And I believe what you’re saying and I don’t support this president whatsoever, but ma’am, we lost, November 6, we had the opportunity to get another president in there.”

The woman said Obama was a “fraud” who was above the law, at which point Mullin said it had “nothing to do with anybody being above the law.”

“Our country is facing some serious issues and if the rest of the American people thought that was a big enough issue, which I thought it probably would’ve been, who would’ve thought we would ever actually, actually be questioning if we had a natural-born president being president?” Mullin said.“That point was made and people still elected him to be president…when I say we lost that argument, we lost that argument, now let’s move onto some other issues. I believe it’s still there, but guys if we didn’t prove it the first four years, what do you think the chances are now?”

As Steve Forbes said, "If the cookie tastes so great, why don't they eat it?"

who's brainwashed? your level of awareness can only make one wonder.

Study: GOP guests dominate Sunday morning talk shows

The study showed that one-on-one interviews with policy makers and other national figures, which are the ratings bread and butter of the talk shows, featured 166 Republicans to Democrats’ 70. Roundtable discussions welcomed 189 Republican guests and 109 Democrats.

It’s worth noting, also, that the liberals typically presented on these programs are mostly centrists with very few out-and-out progressives, leading FAIR to quip that “corporate media’s idea of a debate is conservative ideologues matched by centrist-oriented journalists.”

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2012/04/18/study-g...

you need to stop acting like the right wing media is the last word. unless you like looking the fool.

now....how many Democrats who are running for office will FOX have on to the run up to 2014? and how many Republicans who are running for office?

we all know the answer to that question: Dems are out and all a Repub has to do is call FOX and set up a time.

though i do see where FOX is thinking about it's own Hillary special, which i am sure will be nothing but flattering.

Benghazi!!! myths galore!!!

She'll keep putting it out there. She wants to be President, it's her destiny.... just ax her? She had to grab Billy Boie, because she couldn't do it herself. We wonder whether it will bring back to life all the misdeeds, Vince Foster, Monica Lewinski, et al? Also what ever new daliances are published. It could get very interesting?

You are.

Tell me one thing the liberal media reported to keep you informed that even suggests any wrongdoing on the part of this administration.

Don't forget that Obama, himself, said the IRS targeting was "outrageous" and he would "get to the bottom" of the 9/11 attack and bring those responsible to justice.

Let's start there. Post any article by the liberal media since October or November of last year that even addresses just these two issues.

Then we'll move on to the abuses of power by the Department of Justice. Yes, they were pissed off for a day or two. But when was the last time you read or heard anything about this?
