Plus the arms sales to Al Qaeda and the overall incompetence of Obama.
So, you just admitted that you never watch Fox TV News shows? Check this out: http://www.ask.com/wiki/The_Five_ (TV_program)?o=2800&qsrc=9 99 Also, the 'arms sales to Al Qaeda'-- You got that confused too. You must be talking about Reagan's illegal Iran-Contra weapons for hostages swaps with al qaeda leaders or his CIA Director Casey's illegal sales of stinger missiles and other 'weapons of mass destruction' to revolutionary cadres of jihadists and al qaeda in Afghanistan in the 80's. If Casey had lived then he would have been in jail and Reagan impeached.

The unemployment statistics show that Porkulus was useless.

On the bright side, Obama is eliminating unemployment by driving millions of people from the workforce to the disability rolls.

Volunteers to do flyovers at Air Force Academy graduation

Published May 10, 2013

Associated Press

AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo.– The jets that typically streak over Air Force Academy seniors on graduation day have been grounded by federal budget cuts, but privately owned aerial demonstration teams are volunteering to do the flyover instead.

The Air Force Thunderbirds' demonstration team canceled dozens of performances due to the cuts known as sequestration.

But academy officials said Thursday that more than a dozen pilots have volunteered to fly historical U.S. military aircraft over graduation week events, including the commencement ceremony May 29.

Texas Flying Legends Museum President Tyson Voelkel says his organization is honored to be among those volunteering time and aircraft for the flyovers. The Army veteran says his organization wants to honor veterans attending the commencement ceremony, to inspire cadets, and to make it a memorable graduation for seniors.

FU Obama.

Apparently, you never heard of Neil Silver's www.fiftyfivethirty.nytimesblog.com or the successful GM bailout that saved thousands of blue collar jobs in the auto industry in the midwest (from Ohio to Minnesota) Obama won all those states and nailed Romney's ass to the losers wall before Florida reported in another state went for Obama/Biden in 2012.

Megyn Kelly claimed on Thursday that the mainstream media issued a "collective yawn" about the Congressional hearings — a contention that drew scrutiny from some media-watchers.
Kelly quoted headlines from outlets like the Los Angeles Times, San Francisco Chronicle and The Huffington Post which she felt underplayed the drama of the hearings.
"if you look at, sort of, across the mainstream media, it was a collective yawn," she said.
The Washington Post's Erik Wemple took the claim head-on in a Thursday blog post. Wemple—who has followed the Benghazi story very closely—noted that the hearings had been given top billing on the front pages of the New York Times, Washington Post and Wall Street Journal. These are probably the three most important and influential newspapers in the country, and they all had straightforward, non-dismissive headlines that Kelly did not cite, such as "In Riveting Account Of Benghazi Raid, Official Knocks Administration Response," and "Officials: Facts on Benghazi withheld."
In her segment, Kelly also criticized outlets for focusing on the Jodi Arias trial and the story of the three women kidnapped in Cleveland.
"When you look at what folks chose to concentrate on, they were much more interested in Jodi Arias and what happened in Cleveland," she said. "In neither case were four Americans killed in a terrorist attack on our country!"
Kelly failed to note that she was one of the anchors who turned their focus to Arias and Cleveland. On Thursday, Newsbusters rapped MSNBC's Chris Hayes over the knuckles for playing footage of Kelly updating viewers on both stories. The entire network also turned to Arias when she was declared guilty. Fox News even led the ratings with its Arias coverage.
The media's investigations into Benghazi continued on Friday morning, as ABC's Jon Karl published an exclusive story about the State Department's revisions of talking points. That would suggest that reporters are still looking into things.
Wemple wrote that Fox News was resorting to an old pattern:
Forgive Fox News for its analytical blindness. For years, the network has been shredding the mainstream media for ignoring its pet issues. It’s a mantra, a reflex response. So when contrary information pops up on street-corner newspaper boxes, on TV screens and on computer screens everywhere, we can excuse Fox News for not noticing. Give it a pass on this one.

By the way, "The Five" is an opinion show, not a news show, and has conservative, moderate, and liberal opinion.

President Obama has always praised volunteer work and local charity --he was a community organizer civic volunteer himself once. Kudos to Obama and Bah Humbug! to the Sequester-loving Republicans, Issa, Ryan, and Cruz.

Don't know about Neil, but if you mean Nate Silver, his current projection is that Republicans hold the House in 2014 and gain seats in the Senate, with an outside chance at control.

Fitting, I suppose, considering this parallel universe and history repeating itself right before our very eyes.
Has anyone been following the debate over the so-called 'Immigration Reform' joke?

EVERY attempt to amend it with border security guarantees has been shot down.

The next group of Boy Messiah terrorists will probably just drive across the S.W American border in broad daylight with a bumper sticker that says "Allah Akbar! Death To Americans"...

Of course the Magic Negro won't see it because he'll either be singing on David Letterman or Golfing with losers - or both.

So your saying 'The Five ' are pundits make-believe newspeople no better or worse than 'The Colbert Show' and 'The Daily Show'? Seen that way 'The Five' does give occasional comic relief to an otherwise grey, boring day.
