DUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHH!?!? Let's hope we hear of more bullet stops. This time from the right and lots of them. Rush, Hannity et al. What's good for the goose........! Truly. Let's all play this game. It is exactly what the right wanted but now the gutless bastards will protest like this "Oh it isn't what we wanted". Horse shlt. It's your dream scenario, just not enough of a body count to make them happy. The GOP is toasting this tragedy and hoping for more. Think I'm lying or exaggerating? Watch the news talk shows Sunday morning and watch as at least one GOP POS will offer how "they can protect us more". Horse shlt spewed by horses as/s/es.

Don't get your liberal panties in a wad. This shooting sends a message to lawmakers that the people aren't happy with the direction we're headed. Yeah, some young, naive, nutjob with a gun let loose -- but it still should warn Congress that the people COULD rise up and put an end to the b.s. if necessary. No one is safe. Period.

I suppose it never occurred to you that it's the hate filled discourse from people like you and the mindless finger pointing without facts that stir up mentally unbalanced people like this kid? I'm sure your kind are looking forward to Der Commissar Obama to use this incident to start his American version of Kristalnacht by shutting down any and all dissenting opinion and stripping honest Americans of their 2nd Amendment rights but cooler and smarter heads than yours will prevail. Go take your meds loon.

No one is celebrating this tragedy. Yes, the media originally asked about Tea Party possibilities. That info was trounced quickly.

I don't support any liberal agenda, and I certainly don't support what this leftist whacko did. He had already published his favorite books on his MySpace page, including Marx's Communist Manifesto. He also was very open about his drug use, so it actually is reality and not someone who just wants lower taxes and less government making something up for political advantage.

This is not the right's fault, nor the left's. It's a crazy idiot with a gun. Just like Bush didn't cause a Hurricane, the Tea Party had nothing to do with a crazy nut killing innocent people.

Ahhh, the irony.

The left didn't know the shooter was a self professed liberal when they started their orchestrated rampage of blaming the right, TEA Party and republicans.

They tried to spin the lie but it only backfired in their own faces as the truth came out the shooter was a liberal.

And this is what the president has said.

Obama:“They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”

Obama to His Followers:“Get in Their Faces!”

Obama on ACORN Mobs:“I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”

Obama to His Mercenary Army:“Hit Back Twice As Hard”

Obama on the private sector:“We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“

Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
** Obama to lib supporters:“It’s time to Fight for it.”
** Obama to Latino supporters:“Punish your enemies.”
** Obama to democrats:“I’m itching for a fight.”

I would venture to say the TEA Party will grow more rapidly in numbers now that the left has been exposed as the ones who are causing the hate and division with their Saul Alinski Rules For Radicals and Clowen-Piven tactics.

Most people will not want to associate with the left anymore and the the left have no one to blame but themselves.

It is funny that we now know that this fool that did this was a leftwing whacko yet in the El Paso times today there are 3 articles that connected to this tradgedy and every one of them imply that he was a right wing nut job inspired by talk radio. In one article they mention Sarah Palin. In two oarticles they mention this congresswoman's opponent in the last elections. They all talk about her supporting the health care bill and how she had received threats over that.

This is typical of the left. They immediately try to politicise a tradgedy for their benefit. What was it that Biden said? Never let a crisis go to waste or something to that effect?

This is just a case of a nut job arracking a politician and inocent people being caught in the crossfire.

Guess the liberal shooter felt that the liberal congress woman was just not liberal enough in his deranged liberal state of mind. If you cannot convince them with your liberal shouting and mindless rant, go get your liberal gun to really get their liberal attention. Truly sad that this is the way the liberal mind deteriorates in that they resort to violence when one of theirs doesn't toe the liberal party line 100%.

Hey Tfrensley, Mcveigh didn't act alone. Read the Wiki account of it. Even a retired general said that what Mcveigh did could not have possibly done the damage that resulted.

It's called the Big Lie.

You should quit telling them.

Interesting how the Clinton group didn't pursue the Islamic connection to the truck rental. Not exactly a white supremist outfit.

1) The shooter is not a liberal:
"Arizona — Jared Lee Loughner, the alleged shooter of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and others on Saturday, may have ties to anti-Semitic, anti-immigration hate group American Renaissance, according to a leaked memo from the Department of Homeland Security."
http://newsone.com/nation/newsonestaff2/jared...

2) The shooter is insane. Blaming anyone's political rhetoric for his actions is like blaming the Beatles for Charles Manson's crimes.

you are right. he also had some militia members and toe posse comitatus behind him. they weren't left wing organizations, and his motive was revenge for waco. i'm sure you are quite familiar with the big lie. you rightwing lunatica are quite adept at telling them. have a good day
