Made up scandals, his popularity is at 50%, 43% disapproval( www.gallup.com ). 43%= the same idiots that hate him and never voted for him to begin with and have been looking everywhere for something to bring him down since day one. I believe you all are 0 for 65 or so. Nobody else cares.

Pro-life is really a misnomer for the radical right--they really don't give a gnat's fart about human beings after they're born, want to deny them health care and education and food; keep the death penalty moving on an express lane; make sure that the insane don't have to stop to reload in min-massacre...yeah, that's really PRO-life...

The fun part is going to be when Obama beats the Republicans(again) and his popularity soars.

Americans don't care much for azzholes going after our president for no reason.

All this will probably shrink the rightwing base even more.

Maybe you should actually open the dictionary instead of just propping your bong on it.

Recent criticism of the use of myriad as a noun, both in the plural form myriads and in the phrase a myriad of, seems to reflect a mistaken belief that the word was originally and is still properly only an adjective. As the entries here show, however, the noun is in fact the older form, dating to the 16th century. The noun myriad has appeared in the works of such writers as Milton (plural myriads) and Thoreau (a myriad of), and it continues to occur frequently in reputable English. There is no reason to avoid it.

I am not least bit confused about who I am. Your confusion is your personal problem.

Now let me hear your justification for the myriad of Progressive sites that actively promoted punishing/harassing Obama's alleged enemies.

This is a gestapo tactic.

CNN poll: 59% approve of GOP handling of Benghazi scandal

But a CNN/ORC International survey released Sunday morning also indicates that congressional Republicans are not overplaying their hand when it comes to their reaction to the three controversies that have consumed the nation’s capital over the past week and a half. And the poll finds that a majority of Americans take all three issues seriously.…

How many thousands of Americans unknowingly carry an internal death sentence, maybe an aneurysm or cancer that is beyond treating? Only the tragic time and circumstances of demise await recording.
Is our nation in the same sick bed? Is Benjamin Franklin’s proud but precarious Republic, Madame, beyond saving? Grave concern is justified.
If our popular, reelected president thinks—and says out loud—that the Founders’ framework of divided powers, checks and balances, and limited, decentralized control is JUST A BIG DRAG on “progress,” and then, the nation doesn’t toss him out forthwith, is that a critical vital sign?
If our populace forgets--or never knew--the warning of America’s greatest president:“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence – it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and fearful master,” but instead, our people admire the COOL INCUMBENT who implores them to reject the voices that warn that big government leads to tyranny, then can we conclude the people have LOST the energy and vigilance that history has always demanded of free people?
If the president’s implausible account of current scandals is true—
“I didn’t direct the IRS to stomp conservatives! That was low level scoundrels! There’s no plot to abuse the media…the Justice Department just kinda’ went rogue on the Associated Press! And my Brother Holder was recused, anyway! There’s no Benghazi cover-up! My administration simply laundered and sanitized the account of slaughtered American diplomats and protectors as part of a petty, bureaucratic spitting contest between CIA and State! My fingerprints are nowhere near the bloody scene! Hell! After I was briefed, I split to pack for Vegas; any questions about where I was are ‘offensive’, you racist!”
--Then does it reveal that, beyond this current maladministration, we suffer under the accumulated, metastasizing mass of an imperious, arbitrary bureaucracy? Do we live under Leviathan, that can, for its own self-serving reasons, ruin any one of us, if and when it chooses?
How, exactly, does a free people overthrow an abusive bureaucracy that, as David Axelrod asserts, is too vast for even the president to be aware of, let alone control?
Lady, you're full of shit & it's seeping through your pores! You don't, you can't overthrow this administration. IT'S UNAMERICAN! You will do what we had to do for 8yrs as Bush demolished this country, wait on the next election & pray you find a conservative qualified enough to take out Hillary. Fat chance! I will continue to do what the average American does when you bring up these b/s scandals, deflect everything back to the master of disaster, George W. Bush! Democrats can run on that for the next 4 elections & no matter how much you ignore it, you can't deny it!

Who cares what you think about them?

It is illegal for the IRS to target them because they do not like their philosophy or political viewpoints.

On the day the bill was introduced into the Senate that would eliminate oil subsidies, Mitch McConnell's campaign fund received over $131,00.00 in donations from the oil industry. Three days later the bill had been killed through a filibuster.

LOL, thanks, this explains a lot about why Realtime keeps trying to claim posters here have multiple IDs.

The only poster here who has such a picky fetish about grammar is lesonnoa (or some such spelling).
