Poor teabagger.

Yes "twisting" words by using republican/teabaggers exact quotes?
In a remarkable interview on Fox News, Gingrich argued that it was dishonest to quote anything he said two days ago:
It's difficult for me to take anything from Fox news too seriously.

Obama is not almost a Republican. You have no idea what a Republican is, and Obama is a socialist like his personal friends.

Yes, I do.

Obama is almost there.

You didn’t hear this on Fox News or the Drudge Report, but on October 10 Venezuela seized and nationalized a massive fertilizer plant part-owned by Koch Industries. The media silence is a bit puzzling. You’d think that the seizure of property belonging to America’s second-largest private company, owned by one of the most powerful families in the country and the bankrollers of today’s libertarian/Tea Party revolution—the billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch–would be considered newsworthy. But no, even though their Venezuela plant was nationalized a whole three months ago, other than a handful of short business-wire dispatches, this has yet to make the news. Even Koch Industries has been suspiciously silent on the matter.

One reason why the Kochs could be keeping the news under wraps is that the nationalization of the fertilizer plant may appear to be bad news for Charles and David Koch, but here’s the big surprise: the Kochs made hundreds of millions on every end of this deal…and even more surprising, bond markets cheered the nationalization. In other words, the free markets championed by the Kochs gave a big thumbs-down to Kochs’ negative influence on the value of the business, while at the same time, the free-market Kochs earned huge windfalls doing business with socialists. No wonder this story hasn’t made the rounds.

Poor "socialist" teabagger.

Of course not all you talk about is Bush, now the present clown in office. Of course he is half arab so we aren't allowed to discuss him.

He is such a failure, he can only be liberal. America would have turned around two years ago if he would have dropped his socialist marxist ideology. He isn't and never will be a republican. He likes killing babies too much.

To change the subject?

You can bring up Obama, it's the ONLY time teabaggers can stay on topic.

You idiots that have experienced life without a cell phone need to undersand, it doesn't matter what Reagan, Bush, Clinton or anyone else did, if it's wrong it's wrong and we can't go back and change what others did but we sure as hell can learn from it. Two wrongs don't make a right.

The Taliban negotiator will put Obama over his knees and spank him just like Putin did a few days ago. They know he's already given up.(The idiot Obama told them so himself!)

What the hell has he got to offer them, a slower withdrawal? "Mr. Taliban, as I retreat towards the horizon, I will slow down my running away a whole bunch... unless you don't give me something in return." Oh, sure, cause a little patience is something the Taliban just can't EVER produce, right, Mr. Obozo?

I can't believe we have this cretin running the free world.

We have a child as our President.

Just as long as Obama doesn't cut and run like Bush did at Tora Bora. Or like Reagan did at Beirut when he got his ass blown off.

God give us someone with more brains and guts than those two Republican clowns.
