CNN's Peirs Morgan was way out of line with his rant.

The MSM will overlook his intentions because he can dance and think that he looks good in a suit. Nancy & Reid are responsible for the infliction upon America, they should be held responsible for Marxist impositions by the man who doesn't care.

<quoted text>Details, old one. Or is it a fallacy that age confers wisdom?
You must not listen to the news, or comprehend what you see or hear. When the Reps were working trying to get a solution to keep from going over the cliff - OBAMA WENT TO A TOY FACTORY still campaigning for his fiscal cliff - he then went to MICHIGAN on his second campaign to meet with the so called middle class people to campaign for his fiscal cliff bill. The days just kept getting shorter and shoter and he WENT TO HAWAII on vacation. The bills the Reps brought forward Reid would NOT PUT ON THE FLOOR FOR A VOTGE. The American people are already starting to see what is happening and you are now hearing comments from those that voted for him. How any more details do you need? If you need more - google the internet and you will find plenty.

The only thing the dems and Obama can explain their
actions is to blame others. Children do this to TRY to keep from being punished. When you are
a child you act as a child, when you become a man,
YOU PUT AWAY childish ways"! This is a message to Obama and all those who will never see and realize
what has happened to our country. We are thankful
that we have survived for more than 200yrs., because we had men who grew up and knew a country
counld NOT survive on HALF the nation was on food
stamps and not paying taxes. The president and
the people think printing money is the answer.
The people are clueless and are proud of their
actions as well as Obama.....We can not survive
the way things are going..

Wait a minute. Feinstein is only a diabolical "calif" version of a Democrat. You can't stop one of them from degrading and devaluing America.
They were sent to Washington to do as much extinction level damage as possible to the Country. It was their mandate.

PRESIDENT FOR LIFE: Dem Rep introduces bill to repeal two-term limit... Laws are for coservatives.........not us. Vive le Revolution.

Obama appoints French economist to 'help shape US global development policy'... Obama outsources more jobs.

Study reveals rocketing sense of entitlement on U.S. campuses... of course, they are too stupid to handle life on their own. They don't want to earn a position in life, they want it handed to them. Hint: Look at Cuba and Russia first kiddies.

I got so many laughs over the last year but the best would have to be the 2nd debate when Obama told Romney,“Please; proceed”, LOL!
The election results prove that we’re right, and they are wrong. The arguments made for Progressive liberalism cannot be broken.
