Barack Obama, our next President

Single-issue parties have never succeeded on any level. I can tell you that the 2012 Libertarian Party Presidential candidate did twice as well as the 2008 candidate but still came in with under 1% of the popular vote. This in light of both parties rushing into TARP (and giving birth to the teabaggers) in '08 and the fact that in '12 the biggest contrast between the two major candidates was that one of them had darker skin than the other. I personally agree that a multi-party system is the only way out but the two major parties have a lock on the system. Both the Tea Party and OWS were had the potential to breathe life into one of the alternate parties but instead were co-opted by the two major parties.

You sound surprised!!

Hagel is a lifelong Republiclown.

You only attack him as a proxy for Obama., the list goes on.

Why do Republiclowns turn on their own?? Any who step out of line, they devour!! Christie, Rubio, Powell, Hagel.

You tribe is full of cannibals.

Our tribe is voting you off the island called North America!!

the past election is proof. the 8% TP membership is more!!

Your shallowness and ignorance is well documented, Nobraina.

Now, even the leftwing media (like Chuck Todd) are heavily criticizing Hagel for being totally unprepared in his testimony, to the point of being unaware of Obama policy on Iran.

You lost your argument before you began.
No other news source besides Fox regularly has the opposing side's point of view while pointing out the other side's point of view with respect and civility.
The one-sided liberally biased news outlets not only avoids having any opposing point of view but what they say about the opposition in their abscence would make your blood curdle.
How would you know? Your TV only gets one channel.

Did you watch MTP this morning Carol? One Democrat/liberal (Robert Gibbs) vs. three Republicans/conservatives (Ralph Reed, Ana Navaro, and David Brooks).

Reporting actual Republiclown positions on issues is manipulating them??

That's why you lose!! You're too stupid to realize the America you want no longer exists!!

The current America is tired of Republiclown lies, hatred, demonizing various groups from women to blacks to hispanics to gays to you name it.

Your brand of hatred for your fellow citizens is a good thing --- for Democrats.

It proves you're too stupid to evolve to anything other than the hate filled racist POS you've been all your miserable life!!

And that is a good thing for progressives!!

Keep handing elections to us with your hatred!!

I'm lovin' it!!

Unfortunately there is some truth in what you say, because the Republicans are too easily manipulated by the media.
Libertarian Party might be better if they favored spending cuts instead of massive tax increases to balance the budget. Alas, their chief spokesperson says that is not the case, that spending cannot be cut.

Advocates are necessary to prevent medical facilities (not just Drs) from taking advantage of patients who may not see things clearly, from illness, dementia, fear.

True. Seems like a Jekyll/Hyde act, with you being Jekyll. Just his name would seem to link him to you. But I could be wrong.

Actually, take your posts at face value, but the Nucular sockpuppet is absurd.

"But other critics contend that this evidence doesn’t necessarily mean the IPCC models are wrong.“It’s important to keep in mind that there are natural short-term variations in global temperature that happen right alongside human-induced warming,” asserts Aaron Huertas, press secretary at the Union of Concerned Scientists.“For instance, it would have been impossible for the IPCC to predict if a volcanic eruption might temporarily cool the Earth, as the Mount Pinatubo eruption did in 1991.”
These were models. Not someone purposefully putting out wrong numbers.
The very name of the organization quoted, "Union of Concerned Scientists", indicates a bias.

Questionable investment, unless they think European football will take hold in the US.

The NFL should face up to the fact that their game is inherently dangerous, obtain waivers from players, involuntarily retire players with concussion symptoms, and establish funding to address later-life medical problems.

Either that or play flag football, with an audience the size of MSNBC.

You have 3 nuts, 1 dim bulb, 1 pair of big, fat lips, and I'll raise you one.

I posted this last night but want to repost it for anyone that didn't read it the first time! Enjoy.

BTW, you all do know I graduated from an Ivy League College right? Just saying.

NBC News

"Top intelligence officials told NBC News Monday night that they have known the Sept. 11 attack on the Benghazi consulate was a terrorist act from the beginning."
http://nbcpolitics.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/...
But instead of investigating why Rice, Obama and Hillary insisted it was a spontaneous mob because of some video, Andrea Mitchell, "true to form" went on the attack against Republicans in the rest of the article.
The road signs can't be more obvious.
The "rest of the article"???

You mean this two sentence comment on the Republican's reaction:

"Republicans have since pounced on Rice’s comments, saying that she had misled the public. Their outrage sparked calls for an investigation into whether politics played a role."

Can't you read?

we've all seen the ratings drop for FOX. if not enough are watching the ads no one will want to advertise on FOX and Alies will not let that happen. and with the ratings as high as they've been there will be an expectation that they should stay that high, and when the don't....
someday we'll look back at this period in time and wonder what they heck they were thinking before reality fell on their heads.
Ratings are down slightly because many Conservatives are tired of seeing Obama, or even hearing about him.

The inaugural show was TV to be purposely avoided. State-of-Union show will be the same.

There are photos of the ambassador being carried to and loaded into a vehicle.
You've become a lying pos__on the one hand defending right wing media and then plastering they're outright fabrications on this thread. You are no better that DB or any of the other trolls.

More video of celebration over the Ambassador's dead body.
http://www.youtube.com/watch...
Same people who dragged him onto the streets.
Hillary was still saying it was a spontaneous mob attack based on a video even after the Cheerleading Squad, NBC, reported the White House knew it was a terrorist attack within two days.
So who you gonna believe? Hillary?
Look at the video. Even if Hillary didn't make he comment about people dragging the Ambassador's body to safety, the people in this video are cheering when they dragged his body out of a building and onto the streets.
Hillary lied once to us about a video and spontaneous mob.
So, I ask again, who are you going to believe? Hillary?
Are you still screwing that chicken? Find another one, this one's dead. Move on. Get yourself some fresh poultry to screw. Have you heard about the skeet shooting conspiracy? That one will keep you busy.

1.6 Self-Defense

The only legitimate use of force is in defense of individual rights — life, liberty, and justly acquired property — against aggression. This right inheres in the individual, who may agree to be aided by any other individual or group. We affirm the individual right recognized by the Second Amendment to keep and bear arms, and oppose the prosecution of individuals for exercising their rights of self-defense. We oppose all laws at any level of government requiring registration of, or restricting, the ownership, manufacture, or transfer or sale of firearms or ammunition.

Or, Americans could grapple with what appears to be a pathological attachment to pointless violence committed by men? Just playing Devil's advocate here.

Then I assume you're also against cuts in education for the same reason.
