I heard a good one...
"My Aunt lived in Chicago. For the first fifteen years she voted Republican, for the next fifteen years she voted Democratic.
What happened after the first fifteen years?
She died"
She probably kept getting a SS check the last 15 years when she was a Democrat when she was dead too.

Here is a Politico writer who tweeted himself burning a flag- Ian Murphy who specializes in being outrageous. Maybe, this would be acceptable for "Rolling Stone"

It's clear your allegiance is to Obama and the liberal democrat's version of America. It's also clear you're prejudiced toward anyone who doesn't agree with your political version of America.
I am no more prejudiced or aligned toward my political version of America than you are of yours. This is a country where people can freely agree to disagree on politics, politicians, bureaucracy and policies. Disagreement is what brings about necessary change.

Seriously. The black leaders including this president, Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson better start changing the narrative.

There is a growing and underlying hatred growing in this country based on misleading and false racist accusations perpetrated by many black Americans with a microphone.

The only racist comments are coming from the left without any proof whatsoever to back them up.

There has never been this kind of racial division and brewing hatred in this country since the 1960s.

Anyone heard of the "knocking out" game? Or saw the videos of this happening in several cities?

The narrative better start changing and quickly. Black leaders are playing with fire and more innocents are going to get burned.

The unrest is largely because of the desperation that's spreading due to the gross lack of jobs and a very shaky economic future.

Only one party is to blame for that. The Obamacare Party.

Your motto is "USAsince hates everyone but Obama."
Yeah, they want a re-write-what is the difference? A re-write will kill large portions of the bill as the dumb Dems have it so interconnected it cannot be implemented as is.
They want to get rid of mandatory insurance policies that cost more and provides them less of what they need. Repeal/re-write what is the difference? This alone will kill the bill.
Focus: a measly 7% wants it left alone.
7%? Where did you get that number? Certainly not from your Fox News Radio. Wake up!!!

21% of Republicans want to wait and see how things go before making any changes. Others are, of course, more supportive...30% for uneducated whites; 34% for college educated whites; 37% for those 65 and over; 29% for those 30-49; 35% f orindependents; 27% for those 50-64; 53% for those 18-29; 42% for non-whites; and 44% for democrats.

so, when will the homo drug addict in the White House resign???
Thought you said you didn't want to be distracted? All your ducking and dodging won't change the FACT that one of your own has been CONVICTED of using cocaine. Shouldn't you be demanding his resignation instead of trying to divert attention from his CONVICTION? I would thing by now you people would be used to having egg on your face. Learn to deal with it. Trying to pass the buck isn't going to make it go away.

The Republican Party's silence on the issue speaks volumes about your lack of common sense.

Yeah, but you're agreeing with the wrong ideology and the wrong party that has taken us so far down the wrong path we're gonna have a heckuva time trying to find our way back.

Why are you doing that?

Geeze you couldn't Google and find the latest poll, the poll was done by CBS.

"Just seven percent of Americans think the Affordable Care Act is working well and should be kept in place as it is."

Your hatey hate of anything that doesn't support Obama blindly is showing.

Other than to crazed Obama groupies this really is not at the top of concerns for Americans at this time.

Rangel is guilty of misuse of public funds; where is your demand for his resignation?

the more enrollments, the bigger the disaster...
the entire program is a farce...
High enrollment numbers is a Republican nightmare and their negative attacks will have the same result as they did during the 2012 election campaign...a train wreck.(Picture me smiling).

FACT: The more who enroll the less chance there is Republicans will be successful in their attempt to repeal Obamacare.

"The Reuters/Ipsos poll found that 42 percent of Americans who currently lack insurance intend to enroll in a plan under Obamacare — a slight uptick from last month, when 37 percent of that population indicated they wanted to enroll. Overall public support for the health reform law also rose from 44 percent to 47 percent."

A recent Gallop poll found that people are “slightly more positive” about the health reform law after three weeks of its rocky roll-out than they were right before the exchanges launched. Both Washington Post and Pew Research Center polls "found that public opinion about Obamacare hadn’t taken a nosedive despite the frustrating issues with the website glitches."

"Once they figure out what Obamacare can do for them, even some of the law’s most passionate opponents have ended up changing their minds."

For you useful idiot democrats, for the hate-filled, prejudiced progressives and racist liberals, dig this:
Nearly 60% of Americans do not want any part of the socialist scam called Obamacare.
Only hardcore leftists and morons who still think Obamacare means free medical care still support Obama even though they know he's untrustworthy and dishonest. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
But keep telling yourself they do if it makes you feel better.
lol! "...60% of Americans?..."

It's amazing how you people create numbers supported by thin air!
