Good point. I don't recall liberals ever making derogatory comments about Barbara or Laura Bush but the Republicans haven't stopped attacking Michele since Obama became a viable candidate. It must have something to with their distaste for strong, independent women.
It is known of as "lack of class" !

kind of hard to say 'to do so' isn't it?

despite the most laughable photo-op ever, Bush didn't win the Iraq War. he couldn't even kill Saddam.

give it a break will ya. the incessant whining is more than a little BillO annoying.

Laugh at these, redneck:
According to The Wall Street Journal, the average deductible for a bronze plan on the Obamacare exchanges for individual insurance is a whopping 40% higher than the average deductible before implementation of health reform. Deductibles jumped so much in large part because of the added benefit requirements under Obamacare.
These requirements are also driving many employers' health plan costs higher. With those costs rising, companies are being forced to raise premiums dramatically, cut benefits, and/or resort to other options. Bumping premiums up is one of the most likely of those other option
ObamaKKkare screws the middle class and the middle class will screw the DemoKKKrats in November....

It doesn't matter how you felt about the Iraq War.

It does matter how you feel about our soldiers seeing the enemy flying its black flags in Iraq today - negating every ounce of blood and every penny of treasure that was lost there - thanks to an inept politician pretending to be a Commander-in-Chief and a president.

Not many things could make true Americans sadder.

<quoted text>This is nothing new. When I was in school I took a Baseball Coaching course taught by the coach of the team that competed in the Pac Ten in the spring and every one in the class except me was on the baseball team. Only baseball players were allowed to take the class but I got an exemption because I was close to the coach. They took the tests on the bus as a group. I also had classes with football players who were friends of mine, one player only attended class one day.
This is so unfair to the athletes -what is it less than 1% go on the be professionals.

It's so interesting to see the reich wing extremists continue to isolate themselves more and more from reality.

They must really hate America.

Saddam Hussein was tried and executed by the laws of his country...

Qaddafi was murdered by Obama's al Qaeda thugs...who then murdered our Ambassador because Obama didn't give a shit...

Off topic, but

So which hospital are people of Cook County allowed to use on the Obamacare plan?

You can't tell the politically blind to stop following the politically lost. They can't see past their bias to know they're being led nowhere. They just keep hoping they'll get wherever they're going eventually.

every previous federal entitlement benefited the middle class in some way, including Social Security and Medicare....

ObamaKKKare is the first entitlement designed to screw the middle class...

middle class voters will punish the DemoKKKrats in November....and you can't spin what the folks see in their paychecks and at the doctor's office...

It does not surprise me that "leaks" was a major concern for Obama. Control of info has always been a hall mark of this man.

To Obama everything is politics and long term goals and outcomes are irrelevant.

If it were up to Obama, Saddam would be alive and well today. And his problem.

Just like Obama didn't kill bin Laden either. The ten year search that began under Bush paid off. Obama could have cared less unless it was to his own political advantage.

You make a great pawn in Obama's game of political chess.

Margaret Thatcher on socialism and socialists: "They would rather the poor were poorer provided the rich were less rich."

She had no idea she was talking about a future President of the United States at the time. And his fellow socialists living in America.

Maybe if you had died liberating a country and ridding the world of an evil that threatened all of civilization only to see the enemy's flags flying in that same country because your Commander-in-Chief could care less about your sacrifice, it might not be so sad.

Who are you anyway? Where did you come from? And why are you here?
