Q: What do Barack Obama and Tiger Woods have in common?

A: They're both trying to screw everybody.

What shocked me, was that Tom Brokow didn't want to go because he thought the relationship between the Media and the Democratic Party and the Obama Administration was too friendly.

HUH!!! He has to be joshing------the dems and the media have been together for at least 80 years and Tom is worried about it now.

Though part of the conservative media script, your assertion that “the dems and the media have been together for at least 80 years” is patently incorrect. It is a misconception promoted daily by the likes of Faux “News,” Limbaugh and such because the mainstream media report news factually rather than parrot their contrived insanity and propaganda.

Your Celebrity in Chief is running out of excuses for his dismal failure at everything, especially keeping us safe. The Presidential Oath Of Office means nothing to the communist hack.

Great evening and great jokes. A president who does not have that smirky deer in the headlights look a la Bush is also a plus.

You get to realize that the GOPs are so easy to mock and make fun of!

You comments are laughable----the International Banksters control the MSM, and the BANKSTERS have skewed ever election since the advent of affordable coast-to-coast television in the early 1950's.

"mainstream media report news factually"

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

You are living in a fantesy world. We do not live in a democracy and/or a republic, BUT in a MEDIAOCRACY, where the RICH and POWERFUL control the flow of information to their benefit. Heck, the number one purpose of the MSM is to cover-up information, not disclose it.

I do sense that you are intelligent, so there is hope for you to be enlightened.

What do you and a hemmorhoid have in common? Nothing. A hemmorhoid is a lot smarter.

I wonder if Obama ever did win a SINGLE political position without
Outside Sinister help???

"O"s first so-called "election" for State Senator of Illinois in 1996.

His opponents in that race:

"Gha-is F. Askia of South Shore was a 39-year-old Black Muslim assistant to W. Deen Mohammed and a close friend of Muhammad Ali (who would host a fundraiser for him in November)..."

"Marc Ewell of Chatham was the 30-year-old youngest son of former eight-term state Rep. Raymond W. Ewell of Chatham..."

"Ulmer D. Lynch, Jr. of Englewood was a 69-year-old former building manager, ex-city laborer, and former precinct captain..."

Alice Palmer, the incumbent Democratic State Senator from Illinois, representing the state's 13th District, and was a shoo-in for re-election.

How did Obama "win"? Simple, he forced all four candidates off the ballot by challenging the signatures on their nominating positions.
Strangly, even though 3 of the candidates had WAY MORE than enough signatures, after the examination by the The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners, they came up short.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illinois_Senate_...

Signatures needed to get on ballot. 757

Askia(Muhammed Ali's buddy) had
1,899 signatures; approx. 2/3rs are ruled invalid leaving 688

Ewell
1,286 signatures; approx 1/2 are ruled invalid leaving 671

Palmer(incumbent)
1,580 signatures; aoorix. 2/3 are ruled invalid leaving 561
----------
This is a real streach-even for The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners. No media scrutiny---the mystery man advances.
