Just changed the channel to see what MSNBC is talking about. OMG they are STILL on the Russia thing!!!
Good luck liberals with the mid terms! You have no leader for your party, you have no message (except hate for the president and all who voted for him), we have N.K. issues, we have just had one major hurricane and about to be hit by an even stronger one, and we have a hell of a lot going on right now and STILL the MSM are stuck on Russia.....which is nothing but the liberals looking for an excuse for losing the last presidential election.....the same as Hillary!
The mid terms will be here and gone and the liberals will still be doing the same thing, running around whining about and looking for an excuse for losing the presidency and quit frankly just about every special election since, and they will continue to behave exactly the same way the were when they lost and yet they still will be looking for some other reason why!
So far this "Russia thingy" isn't working out so well for liberals. It is almost comical watching you all look for a reason, gotta have a reason, why oh why did the country reject liberal ideas and their agenda so much?!!!
Whatever it takes to avoid looking at themselves......again like Hillary!
It would appear Hillary is still the best face of the Democrat party!
That should work out well for liberals come mid terms!!!

You didn't mind Obama blowing through 10 trillion and doubling our debt and came away with nothing but large fuel bills, vacations and new sets of golf clubs.

The government shut down thing is a farce and a joke. The government is divided into essential and non essential. Only fifteen per cent is non essential. The essential is funded no matter what. Nothing is really shut down.

Ivanka and Jared are definitely non essentials I wouldn't mind seeing cut from the budget.

But then who would be available to drop by and say "hello" at just the right time to distract, diffuse and confuse?

You opinion is noted. Your problem is as soon as the government is funded those non essentials are then back paid and funded. No one in government ever loses, only the taxpayer.

Middle class taxpayers.

Trump and his friends will not suffer. They will get big tax breaks to invest overseas.

The policies of the President have already reduced the debt by over a billion dollars. If we leave him there long enough, and send our expensive illegals home we can begin getting something done. Obama brought in people from all over the world, and treated those who pay the bills like peons. It was payback for slavery, so now we owe them nothing. Remember the Obama years the next time you want to vote in a black President.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Codetalker, Iím an angry gaunt and underfed clusterfuck of a human being. I will tell you whom to hate with ambiguous and not so accurate facts, that I made up myself, laced with ridiculous assumptions and absurdities. Most describe my logic as a total failure, in short, Iím an asshole.

What policies? There has been no fiscal policies debated in the Senate. And no votes.

Barack Obama deported more undocumented immigrants than any President in history.

And Barack Obama's mastery put millions of Baby-Boomers on easy street in their retirement by restoring their looted life savings.

At a rate of 10,000 per day. American Sensiors are retiring out of the workforce in a better financial position than the typical younger worker who replaced us in retirement.

You are trying to enlighten a group of people who cannot entertain the thought that Obama had their best interest at heart.

If Kellyann Conway, Rush Limbaugh, Pat Robertson, Jimmy Swaggart or some other Evangelical didn't say it, it just cannot be true.

Obama bad, Trump good. That's all they can process. If they let themselves for one second understand the truth, their heads will explode. Thus the need for "alternative Facts."

Not the taxpayers expecting an acceptable standard of civivility in the United States. Clean Streets, public transportation, Garbage pick up, professional policing, EMTs and economic development investment.

Those of you that don't care about standards can keep existing in mud and ash pits
