Why, because we happen to disagree with? And I'm not a bagger, I just tell it like it is. He never was a leader and never will be. He's done nothing but bring us into more and more debt, and ruin our Country. Even some of the more liberal newpapers who were always biased toward him are now even making negative comments about him. More and more people are waking up to what the Obamacare program is all about and it definitely is not" affordable health care", at least not from what I've seen and any of our friends looking into it!

Nazi dictator Obama caused the shut down and nearly caused a default because he refused to show some leadership, compromise and reach across the aisle, he refused to give up his commie quack care that no one wants. He clung to his "my way or the highway" Nazi dictator attitude...The GOP let him have his way this time for the sake of the people.....we'll have OUR way in 2014 when we win the Senate , destroy Obama quack care and Odummy becomes a lame duck President moreso than he already is.

You forgot American-Republican traditions.

I have NO intention to suppoer emperors.
I DO respect American-democracy.

And, I think that you forgot it.

Once, you proudly dclared that you were the gurdian of American-people.
Now, you forgot it.

And, there have been NO Tribune in Asia, Japan, China, etc. till now.
Even now, Asia, Japan, China, etc. have NO such jobs.

I have NO intention to say that you should rebuild tribune.
In fact, this system failed.

But, you forgot the spirit.

In short,
tribune was a gurdian of the people.
And, no one could harm him.

(Yes, this sounds familier and it might go wrong.)
(But, what I want to say is you forgot democracy.)
(And, in fact, Romans forgot democracy.)

I have NO intention to express my opinions.
But, you say you are Triube.
Then, you must do it.

American-media too corrupted.

Tribune Company
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tribune_Company
The Tribune Company (Tribune) is an American multimedia corporation based in Chicago, Illinois.

It is the nation's second-largest newspaper publisher (behind the Gannett Company), with ten daily newspapers and several commuter tabloids including the Chicago Tribune, Los Angeles Times, Orlando Sentinel, Sun-Sentinel and the Baltimore Sun.
Through Tribune Broadcasting, the company owns 23 television stations, national cable superstation WGN America, regional cable news channel Chicagoland Television (CLTV) and Chicago's WGN radio.

Tribune
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tribune
Tribune was a title shared by elected officials in the Roman Republic.
Tribunes had the power to convene the Plebeian Council and to act as its president, which also gave them the right to propose legislation before it.
They were sacrosanct, in the sense that any assault on their person was prohibited.
They had the power to veto actions taken by magistrates, and specifically to intervene legally on behalf of plebeians.
The tribune could also summon the Senate and lay proposals before it.
The tribune's power, however, was only in effect while he was within Rome.

[Wikipedia]
Plebeian Council
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plebeian_Council
The Concilium Plebis (English: Plebeian Council or People's Assembly) was the principal popular assembly of the ancient Roman Republic.
It functioned as a legislative assembly, through which the plebeians (commoners) could pass laws, elect magistrates, and try judicial cases.

[2-3]
[Wikipedia]
Plebs
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Plebs
In ancient Rome, the plebs was the general body of free Roman citizens who were not patricians, as determined by the census. Shopkeepers, crafts people, and skilled or unskilled workers might be plebeian.

[2-4]
[Wikipedia]
Patrician (ancient Rome)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patrician_ (ancient_Rome)
The term patrician originally referred to a group of ruling class families in ancient Rome, including both their natural and adopted members.
In the late Roman Empire, the class was broadened to include high administrative officials, and after the fall of the Western Empire it remained a high honorary title in the Byzantine Empire.
Medieval patrician classes were once again formally defined groups of leading burgess families in many medieval Italian republics, such as Venice and Genoa, and subsequently "patrician" became a vaguer term used for aristocrats and the higher bourgeoisie in many countries.

[Wikipedia]
Roman consul
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_consul
Two consuls were elected each year, serving together, each with veto power over the other's actions, a normal principle for magistracies.
It is thought that originally only patricians were eligible for the consulship.

Yeah.
This is Consular.

For the DNC the only thing about Palin and Cruz that frightens them is that they will go away. And Miley Cyrus also lives well and draws big crowds - and her opinions mean more to more people than Palin's and Cruz's put together.
Your whining about Palin's troubles being caused by the media could not be more off the mark. She wanted the media exposure to further her "brand" - but it turned out that her brand was just about willful ignorance and stupidity. Cruz at least has a bit more intelligence - but his own massive ego and allegiance to an extremist minority undermines him at every turn.

The thing is...you Democrats aren't used to the GOP fighting back...that's because weve had a bunch of RINO's and moderates in the party for far too long....they failed in stopping ObamaCare, they failed in preventing Obama from being re-elected, they failed by allowing Obama to get his way too many times.

Its time to put a rein on Obama's out of control Commie takeover of our country and Cruz, Lee and Rubio will lead this fight.

No its a sad statement on the intellect of the liberal populace that idolizes a nekkid tongue wagging airheaded slut instead of legitimate law abiding patriotic American leaders.

i would bet most of Cyrus's fans are on the far right spectrum.

Palin patriotic? seriously? patriotism means actually taking the time and effort to understand the workings and history of our nation, which palin has repeatedly shown is beyond her capability or desire....

she is the epitome of what is wrong with our nation.
