Flacks schedule for the day....Wake up as stupid as when he went to bed.. Start copying and pasting mindless posts from far right web sights, [it inforces his very low self esteem] followed by 20 reminders that Liberals are libtards. All the while collecting money and perks that some liberal made possible, [it's a hypocrisy thing] does this for about 7-8 hours or until another poster infuriates the whiney wimp, then he hurls a few expletives and vanishes into flake world. Only to appear again the next day.

yep but try to convince half the loony tunes on here of that.
I have always said it was the Republican's fault Obama got elected.

If they had not taken us from a balanced budget to near complete economic destruction, they might have won.

If in 2008, we had a balanced budged, completed the Afghan mission, not invaded Iraq, not doubled the debt,. not created the worst recession in 80 years, any Republican would have won.

Heck, McCain could have picked his buddy Lieberman for VP & won in a landslide.

Obama won because Republicans sucked. End of story.

This one reason right whiners get so upset, they are just too f*cking stupid to get it.
That is taken from the White House Presidential Schedule. If you don't like the fact that he doesn't do squat before 9:50 and after 4:50 take it up with them. They report his SCHEDULE for the day. If there were meetings before and after it would be on the SCHEDULE!!!! Asskisser!!!!

If liberals weren't trapped and ensnared by propaganda, you wouldn't be posting this kind of stupidity. Chances are you don't even know why you posted this. Except it's what you've been told to parrot.

After you've watched at least one, preferably two, of the four primetime shows all the way through - Greta, O'Reilly, Hannity or Kelly - the truth just might rock your world.

Have you ever watched any of them? Because, if not, you should be asking yourself why you're repeating what you've been told to parrot without even knowing what you're talking about.

Nobody's "blaming" anyone for Social Security and Medicare you clueless twit! You "blame" someone for something that's bad; not something that actually helps seniors keep a roof over their heads, food on the table and provides medical coverage.
The Republican solutions are to privatize these programs giving Social Security over to Wall Street and Medicare to the vultures in the insurance industry. Anyone who thinks that trusting their retirement or access to healthcare to the private sector where profits are the primary if not only goal are fools.
Neither Social Security nor Medicare are going bankrupt liar.
You're an idiot Carol; you always have been and always will be!
I watched FOX yesterday for about two hours and it became very clear why anyone who watches them on a regular basis would be braindead. I have never heard so much negativity and lying in one place. It's systematic brainwashing and nothing else.

Listening to FOX for only a short while was enough to make me understand why these weak lemmings are rude, openly racist and blame the poor, Mexicans, blacks and feminazis for everything. THAT is what FOX news tells them and they swallow it hook, line and sinker.

Boehner Joins Camp in Profiting From Corporate Effort to Escape U.S. Taxes
Bloomberg
By Richard Rubin 11 hours ago

Two top Republican lawmakers profited from a corporate tax-avoidance maneuver that the U.S. Treasury Department is seeking to curb.

While U.S. House Speaker John Boehner and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp have resisted calls for a crackdown on companies adopting overseas addresses to pay lower taxes, both have made money off one of the deals. They also have investments at risk of losing value because of government action.

The two lawmakers reported the sale of stock in Covidien Plc within nine days of Medtronic Inc. saying it was planning a takeover, an announcement that sent Dublin-based Covidien's shares near a 52-week high. The deal, one of several that have sparked a national debate over U.S. corporate tax policy, would put the combined company's headquarters in Ireland and reduce its tax rate.

Boehner, the top Republican in Congress, and Camp, whose committee controls tax policy, haven't backed a proposal by President Barack Obama and Democrats for a retroactive law that would penalize the Medtronic-Covidien deal and seven others.

According to an analysis of public disclosures, the lawmakers still hold Medtronic shares -- and Camp bought additional stock after the medical-device maker announced the transaction. Those holdings, though only a small part of the two multimillionaires' stock portfolios, give them an interest in the deal's completion, along with their ability to influence the outcome.
‘Beyond Suspicion'

Their actions are legal, and spokesmen for both say the congressmen weren't involved in the financial decisions and that the trades were made by their investment advisers. Still, the two lawmakers, who have more sway over tax policy than any other House members, are invested in deals that Obama and other Democrats say are wrong and unpatriotic.

A Bloomberg News review of public filings of congressional leaders and members of the tax committees found at least five other lawmakers with investments in companies involved in inversion deals.

"The opportunities for being swayed by that are legion," said Miles Rapoport, president of Common Cause, a Washington-based group that advocates for open government. "This is not a small issue where we wonder whether legislators are acting entirely in the public interest or whether somewhere in their mind it's about how they will fare themselves." ....

I have watch Fox plenty of times, as a matter of fact up until a few years ago I watch them quite regular until they became way to fanatical, I love it when people like John Stewart and Bill Maher would make Oreilly look like a fool. Hannity is one of the dumbest on TV, a total nut case and when Beck was on there they became disgusting and only fools like you become absorbed by idiots like that who totally deprive you of the ability forself thinking.

<quoted text>Thank you, I am sure the ignorant liberal didn't know. I thought I was going to have to explain it again. Good job.
Your ignorance is showing, as usual.

The Oxford English Dictionary defines "tar baby" as "a derogatory term for a Black (U.S.) or a Maori (N.Z.)".

"The Dark Legacy of "Tar Baby", "Boy" and other Racial Slurs":

"Through the years, the phrase (Tar Baby) became known as a slur, particularly against blacks of a darker hue."

"As such, to many blacks,“tar baby” is as much a fighting phrase as the “N” word. Despite this fact, some whites remain incredulous at the thought that such words are often used among some blacks, but the same becomes patently offensive when uttered by whites."

"As for other racial slurs like Tar Baby, Coon, and any references to apes and gorillas, for generations, these words were used by whites to dehumanize blacks."
