Well we can attribute most of the NATIONAL DEBT to that and our DEREGULATION of the banking industry. Imagine the working poor getting a raise Zeppelin wouldn't that be great. Sorry to let all the hot air out of your destined epic BALLON FAILURE or was that TARP or IRAQ or How about the sell of W's Rangers bankrupt ball team or How about all of the MONEY HALIBURTON made and lined the pockets of all the PORK eating REPUBLICONS!!! You want to talk about LIES Surely Not!!!!!!
after 911, what do you think we should have done?

just like a liberal to whine about how we dealt with the attackers and supporters of 911.

why are you not spewing hate at the perpetrators who declared war on us?

instead, you demonize our own troops?

what are you? brain dead stupid?

...or are you a monkey? yeah. that would explain your rhetoric. another freaking monkey.

Do you support Obama's Iraq war? Of course we can't really call it a war yet, because he didn't go to Congress. He thinks he is a tribal King. Some Democrat should find the courage to tell him he is only President, and has to share power with the House, and Senate. He will be so surprised,

WANTED: Obama’s most vulnerable senators.

The GOP must win six Democrat Senate seats to win a Republican Senate Majority.

Here are the top ten democrats who are the most vulnerable senators according to recent polls:

Mark Pryor, Arkansas
Mary Landrieu, Louisiana
Kay Hagan, North Carolina
Mark Begich, Alaska
Mark Udall, Colorado
Jeanne Shaheen, New Hampshire
Al Franken, Minnesota
Jeff Merkley, Oregon
Mark Warner, Virginia
Tom Udall, New Mexico
These are our top targets that we must kick out of office. We must win back the Senate for the American people and take back these states from Barack Obama.

Only six seats stand in our way, and we only have 90 days left before Election Day.

We must keep our eyes on the target. It’s all on the line.

Together, we can capture six seats from Obama’s most vulnerable Senators.

It is bad enough Obama has no clue what to do in Iraq. He is too bull headed to listen to anyone who knows what must be done. Leave him on the golf course, and call Uncle Joe. He can't be any dumber. Well maybe he can be, on second thought.

McConnell doesn't need my vote of confidence, he will win the election hands down. Grimes is like Wendy, running for office in a state that won't elect a weak woman.

Motch's our man, why can't the liberals understand, it take a real man to wear DEPENDS on your REAR END, you see a liberal can't poop his pants and walk around, but a conservative can poop his pants and spend the night on the town only if the smell can't be found.

Mitch is for the rich. He does what we tell him to. He does his job is keeping wages low and our profits high.
Hopefully Palin will give him some air time on her new channel. What's it called? The Sarah Palin Fartknocker Report" or something like that.

We will never get rid of Unions. They are like a giant cancer. I do think the Democrats will be surprised in November to see how many members vote Republican this time. The members are really upset at how many illegal aliens the Democrats have brought in through their open border.

"Democratic lawmakers weigh in on Chao coal controversy, new poll shows McConnell ahead

08/13/2014 12:13 PM

Coal Association President Bill Bissett received a letter requesting him to denounce the groups actions and demand Chao step down from her position on the board, according to a Yahoo! News report .

The letter came from eight Democratic state lawmakers, including: House Speaker Greg Stumbo, Majority Leader Rocky Adkins, Senator Ray Jones, Representatives Leslie Combs, John Will Stacey, Brent Yonts and John Short, as well as Representative-elect Chris Harris.

The demands come after Yahoo! News reported that Chao was a member of the board at Bloomberg Philanthropies which in 2011 invested $50 million into the Sierra Club’s Beyond Coal campaign — and their “effort to retire one-third of the nation’s aging coal fleet by 2020.” The investment was announced before Chao joined the board in 2012.

In response, Bissett wrote a letter to the eight lawmakers which he said has been sent in hard copy to each of the legislators as well as an electronic copy to House Majority Leader Adkins’ personal email.

In the letter, Bissett said that he understands the Kentucky U.S. Senate race can “force politicians to act along partisan lines.” But Bissett said the Kentucky Coal Association board had reviewed the letter from the lawmakers and decided that because of the timeline of Secretary Chao’s membership in relation to the decision to give money to the Sierra Club, they stood behind her on the issue.

“The Kentucky Coal Association and its board are supportive of Secretary Chao’s service on the board of Bloomberg Philanthropies and Wells Fargo,” Bissett wrote to the lawmakers.“Since her appointment, her involvement as a proven pro-coal person has given Kentuckians someone ‘on the inside’ of those boards who can express our views and explain the social and economic harm that has been caused in the past.”

In a statement earlier in the day, Bissett said the Kentucky Coal Association has not received any such letter from the lawmakers but noted that if the group of lawmakers has an issue with Secretary Chao’s actions, they should direct their efforts toward her.

“While we appreciate the pro-coal positions and past actions of many of the elected leaders who signed this letter, it is important to focus on the severe economic damage that President Barack Obama and Senator Harry Reid have caused Eastern Kentucky and our coal industry,” Bissett said.“While I understand the need for these elected officials to support candidates of their own party, it is also necessary that KCA correct the public record.”

The Associated Press , reported last week Bissett said he has no doubts about McConnell’s support for the industry.

In response to the latest story, the McConnell campaign said the article was just another distraction.

“Alison Lundergan Grimes and her liberal allies are stooping to the lowest levels of desperation in their quest to implement the Obama agenda, but attacking a high achieving Kentucky woman only further proves Grimes’ hypocrisy on women’s issues,” McConnell spokeswoman Allison Moore said in a statement.

The campaign of Democratic candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes has not yet commented on the coal controversy. And in an interview with the Lexington Herald-Leader Monday, McConnell said he would suggest not bringing family into the campaign—hinting that he would be prepared to bring the past of Grimes’ father Jerry Lundergan into the campaign.

“If they want to start bringing family into it, if I were Jerry Lundergan’s daughter, I’d have second thoughts about that,” McConnell told the Herald-Leader."

Well said!!! I couldn't have said it better. Why can't people see that republicans agenda is to keep wages low and profits high. They are trying to destroy the middle class. Before Unions we had no middle class. Only very wealthy and very poor. That's where Mitch and company are trying to take us back to.

So what you're saying is that Alison Grimes-Obama is yet another Democrat bought and paid for by criminal Union thugs? Why would anyone want to vote for someone who is in the pocket of organized crime?
