Reporting from Washington - The White House bills it as a "listening tour," a chance for President Obama's Cabinet to get out of Washington and hear what's on the minds of rural voters around the country. Full Story

The so-called rural tour is nothing but another opportunity to rip off taxpayers. Obama is working on his re-election campaign using taxpayers' money. One would hope that the rural people will have a chance to confront Obama on policies that hurt them such as the energy bill, which is nothing but a tax bill. Also, other Obama's policies that tend to benefit inner city folks at the expense of rural districts, such as the $400 millions spent on ACORN. This is not to mention Obama's anti-gun stance which punishes rural districts more.

Say it ain't so Joe, what a blow hole this whackoff is. Perfect pick for Opie as VP. Now we now why Obama was staying out of the White House in the 1st 100 days. Look what happened when he took his inexperience inside. They are going to have to keep the training wheels on quite a bite longer.

This man is an out and out liar. He is doing it right in our face and doesn't even flinch. He said today that the stimulus is working. Oh really? Unemployment is higher than he ever said it would go. We have not seen a 10% unemployment rate since that shameless Jimmy Carter bubbled his way through for 4 years. Now he says for the 1st time the stimulus money was to keep teachers and firemen working. What a joke. This is the African American version of Al Franken. Come on liberals, tell me again how bad George Bush was. Lets go back and compare the last 8 yrs to what we can now project we are going to get from Opie.

Press Secretary Bill Burton has been asked 10 times in an interview whether Opie would break his campaign promise to not raise taxes on people making less than 250K. They cannot afford to answer truthfully. They are going to make us bend over. Thsi jack off wants us to believe the energy bill is a jobs bill, and it is, a jobs killer. These people are liars and the media is still letting them get away with it.

I hope every liberal in this country gets to see the interview with Bill Burtoon. Now Juan Wialliams, a true blue liberal is interviewing this lying piece of cow smack. If you are a liberal, you have to be embarrassed. You better go back to the talking points classes and start reheating the soup Halliburton, Cheney, Oil, and Weapons of Mass Destruction. You are going to need it.

Naperville was rural when he lived in Chicago and North Carolina is rural when he lives in DC with all his educated elite advisors. Lets show him what rural is all about...we need to download all the bills divide them into 100 page study groups and get the real message back to the "American people"
Retrofit your property to green before you are allowed to sell???? What the heck is that? Is it real? What is green?

"Vice President Joe Biden made an appearance, announcing that $4 billion in federal stimulus money would be made available nationwide to help bring broadband service to areas that lack coverage"

Bribing people with their own money!

Obama takes our wallets and charges a trillion on our credit card, keeps a few hundred billion for his Washington bureaucracy, and sends the remainder back to us in the form of projects we mostly don't want. People want jobs more than they want to upgrade to broadband!

And we are supposed to be grateful for the Obama "cash advance" on the national credit card? Not even a payday lender keeps as big a share as Washington does when advancing us our own money!

He already did break the promise in many ways: the increase in the cigarette tax hist everyone (especially the poor) and the carbon cap-and-tax hits everyone. His health plan will tax soda and junk food and he is proposing to take away the tax deduction on health insurance (read: tax you) if you have good insurance (yes, includes you union folks, sorry but your savior is selling you down the river on taxing your health care).

This is a ruthless bunch. They are slipping and it is driving them nuts because they make all of there moves based on the polls. They are slipping big time. let's go back and ask all the kids that got text messages and thought it was cool to vote for this duffess. They are now finding the the Hope thing didnt happen, but the Change part did. The change being that their moms and dads have lost their jobs and now that they are home for the summer, they are finding that jobs are not available to them. This guy has done more to wake up the Conservatives in this country than anyone in recent memory.The entire dam stae of Minnesota should be embarrassed that they are sending that butt Franken to Washington. Kind of like those of us from Illinois that sent Winnie the Pooh AKA Roland Burris.

As a Republican, I most of you are taking this too far. Obama is the President and should be respected as such. If you don't agree with him, write him about it. Here is the danger to our party from this bashing:

Our party failed. Obama would have never been President if Bush had not messed up. We need to hold the party responsible to clean up it's act. We have no clear leaders. We now have SC Rep involved in a mess that makes the Clinton screw up look minor. Bush came into office with no deficit and left with a deficit that exceeded that all other presidents combined. That is not being fiscally responsible by any means. He also spent all that money and when he left office, Bin Laden still is walking the planet. The free market model has some very major faults. What is the improved model are we going to use?

Pointing out the faults of others is easy, fixing your own faults is much harder.

You are either a Repubican pussy, or really a Democrat in descise. This man is hurting all of us, you can't disrespect someone like this enough. His is looking us in the eye and lying to you. He will ruin this country if people don't stand up and stop. I am talking about people that have never before been engaged. Don't tell me how bad Bush was. He spent his Presidency keep you and I safe. He stood tall and never waivered and you want to think we can disrepect someone that lets Stevie Wonder, Earth, Wind and Fire all reside in the White House. He has turned the place into a frat house. Did you see the picture of the joker skate boarding in the halls of the White House last week. Did you hear this guy go all over the globe and apologize for us. He disrespected me. Either you are a Republican or you are a Colin Powell. Make a choice.

Listening tour, baloney! This is a "pass out the goodies" tour to buy votes in the next election with the so-called "stimulus" funds that were supposed to create jobs but instead have lost 3 million jobs under Obama. The stimulus bill was nothing but pork designed for this very purpose of a "listening tour."
Once again, Obama proves that you can fool some of the people all the time.

Do you call this "leadership" Artie? bo and his merry band of idiots have plunged this country into the deepest debt that this country has even seen in recent history. In a few short months they have taken over the auto industry and wall street, banks and now a grab at energy and health care. This is "fixing" thing? I don't even want to know how or what you think but your mindset seems to indicate that you just might have been one of the zombie obama voters. Thanks for nothing, buddy.
