    " If I bring race into this it is only in a desperate attempt to figure out what the f*** is wrong with you."

    No, you do it because that is the fall back position of all liberals when they can't think of anything else.

    Wow, if a journalist from a NY magazine has reason why he did it, then he should be automatically convicted and impeached. I didn't know there was such strong evidence. And like the Obama administration has changed their stories on more than a few things? Really?

    Never said closing highways was legal or a good idea. What's the matter your argument isn't strong enough without adding words I didn't use? All I said is that we shouldn't hang Christie until they actually have proof of a hanging offense.

    If I recall you wanted the guy in FL hung before there was ever a trial. After the trial, you kept on about how wrong they were and everyone had lied. Were you using the IRS , Fast and Furious examples of 'facts' that didn't really show the entire truth?

    "Oh, you mean like your last candidate…silver spoon Mitt? Give me a break!"

    You're already broken. Mitt ran several companies, he ran, and saved a financially strapped Winter Olympics, he ran a state government. What had Obama done before getting elected? Come one, we're waiting!

    Has he ever even helped run a company? Has Obama ever had to actually work for a living; being a guest professor at a school he graduated from doesn't really count as a job. He ran for, attended the IL state legislature, and did little of nothing while there. He ran for the U.S. Senate and did little or nothing while there...oh, I forgot he campaigned for President.

    His education contains, at least we think, little or no education or training in finance, budgets, or business. What exactly are his qualifications?

    Mitt has an MBA and a record of success in business and politics. What does Lord Barry have? A self admitted record of hanging our smoking dope and play basketball.

    Besides and the main point is that Mitt is not President. He is not lying to the American people on a semi-regular basis and running the greatest economy on the planet into the ground.

    The affordable golf club act, part 2

    Have you been reading the terrible things the OBM is saying about Obamacare and the deficit? The deficit is going down, but then will increase rapidly. Obamacare will cause part of it; it will still leave many uninsured. They also say that part of the reason the deficit is declining, temporarily, is due to decreased spending. Wow, who would have thought that decreased spending might have an impact on the deficit? Certainly not any liberals.

    A news article today spotted yet another 'mistake' when Obama said you can insure your children until they are 26, 'if qualified'. The story is about a retired IBM employee that thought he could insure his 24-year-old grad student on his policy. Apparently, he isn't qualified because dear old dad is retired. How about that, yet another oversight that goes against just plain old American citizens that aren't part of some select group handpicked by the Democrats.

    His Royal Lameness is getting lamer every day. So by the way are you.

    There you go again; dragging race into a conversation that heretofore had never included the subject. What a pitiful attempt by you at deflection away from Obama's lies and the subject of the post.

    The guy that is saying, he knows the evidence exists, has yet to produce it. Why? Is it racist? Is it because Christie is fat? Is it because he is a Republican? Is it because perhaps he doesn’t have the proof?

    I don't know if Christie is guilty or not and quite frankly don't care. If we fired all the politicians that have used their political power to get even with an opponent, Washington would be nearly empty.

    Yes, there have been several investigations into Benghazi and the IRS, and most of them by the government that lead to those incidents. All the documents, all the witnesses and all the facts have yet to surface in any investigation into Obama's administration. You saw what he did with Fast and Furious; he basically ended any investigation by saying the AG didn't have to testify and hid all the documents under Presidential decree.

    He may not be hiding anything illegal or stupid, but when you keep hiding things, it keeps bringing up the question...WHY?

  • pinhighshot pinhighshot Feb 5, 2014 9:40 AM Flag

    Be assured, it won't be the fault of the ACA or Obama's decisions, or those of Dirty Harry. They will become the fault of the Republicans and Fox News. You know that darn folks that keep asking questions and pointing our questionable actions and words and lies. If they would just go away, the world would instantly become a better place, there would be no opposition to anything he wants to do and that is the end game.

    Well, just as I thought you didn't understand the symbolism, parody and humor of the post. You are so focused on berating anyone and anything that disagrees with or laughs at you and your fool in the White House, you can't see the forest for the trees. You're being blinded by your own tunnel vision.

  • pinhighshot pinhighshot Feb 5, 2014 9:33 AM Flag

    "Well, if winholder expects the worst from Obama, that's a compelling development! "

    Hey Mr. Analysts, have you looked at the polls your put so much stock into lately? Most of the country thinks we are headed in a wrong direction, they don't trust him, they don't like him, they think things are worse today.

    Pay attention man, there is going to be a test later.

  • pinhighshot pinhighshot Feb 5, 2014 9:31 AM Flag

    Yep, stomp those Tea Brains, ruin anyone that does not agree or gets in the way of what he wants to do. Make all other political Party's irrelevant and/or make them just go away.

    That is his idea of how to run a democracy. That is his idea of how to compromise and work with people.

    He is anti-business because he knows little or nothing about business. He has never run anything, he has never had to work hard for anything (I don't include campaigning as a job); if you have anything, it is because of the government not your hard work. The only rich people he likes are the Hollywood set and rich guys that contribute to his campaign.

    He lies to the American people. He denies anything that has gone wrong is his fault. He didn’t know about so many things, one has to wonder who is actually running the White House.

    And you wonder why people don’t like him?

    I haven't defended Christie, I simply said that you all should not hang him just yet and shouldn't even try until the investigation is over. I don't care about Christie, I don't live in or anywhere near New Jersey.

    And no, I don't think and many millions in this country don't believe that Obama has been 'vindicated' on the IRS or Benghazi issue and certainly not for the lies he knowingly told in relation to the ACA.

  • pinhighshot pinhighshot Feb 4, 2014 11:11 AM Flag

    And part of the reason that this is a do nothing Congress is due to Harry and his 'if I don't have the votes, we aren't even going to vote' campaign.

    While there is a lot that probably needs to be done that isn't, sometimes doing nothing brings the best results.

    Nah, we only blame Obama for our current high unemployment rate and the fact that he keeps saying he will fix it, or that he has fixed it, depending on the latest monthly stats.

    That along with all the other 'fixes' he has promised that haven't occurred yet. I know, I know, it is all the fault of the Republican Party, Rush, Hannity and Fox News. In Washington, one of the sort of unwritten checks and balances is a multiple Party systems, debate and resistance to what some view as bad or poor legislation. If the Democratic Parry free reign without any resistance, this country would be in even sadder condition. The same works for Republicans without resistance, that is why when there is a difference of opinion, there should be fair, open and complete debate on major issue. That is something today's Democrats do not want and has gone out of their way to stop.

  • A government review board that doesn't know the difference between a hook and a slice will decide everything. This includes when, where, how often and for what purposes you can use your golf clubs along with how many people can ride in your golf cart. The board will also determine if participants are too old or not healthy enough to be able to use their golf clubs.

    They will also decide if your golf clubs have outlived their usefulness or if you must purchase specific accessories, like a range finder with slope adjustment or a newer and more expensive set of golf clubs.

    Those that can afford memberships at expensive golf country clubs will be required to buy memberships. If you are already a member and you like your membership you can keep your membership. After April 2014, a different country club will be assigned for you to purchase a membership.

    Government officials are exempt from this new law as they and their families and some of their friends and a few of their friends friend's can obtain golf clubs at taxpayers expense.


    "He who expects nothing, shall never be disappointed."--

  • Congress and the President have passed a new law titled: "The Affordable Golf Club Act" declaring that every citizen must purchase a new set of golf clubs, before April 2014.

    This law has been passed, because until now, typically only the wealthy or financially responsible have been able to purchase new golf clubs without the assistance of their government.

    This new law ensures that every American can now have "affordable" golf clubs of their own, because everyone is equally entitled to new golf clubs. And if you want to keep the golf clubs you already have, you can do that, until April 2014.

    These affordable golf clubs will cost from $1,000 to $3,000 each depending on your income level. This does not include taxes, pull cart, electric cart fees, green fees, membership fees, balls, tees, gloves, range finders, storage fees, maintenance, or repair costs.

    In order to make sure everyone participates and purchases their affordable golf clubs, the costs of owning golf clubs will increase 50% each year up to 400% by year 2018. This way, wealthy people will pay more for something that other people don't want or can't afford to maintain. People who can't afford or refuse to maintain their golf clubs will be fined. However, children under the age of 26 can use their parents’ golf clubs until they turn 27 at which time they must purchase their own golf clubs.

    If you don't want or think you don't need golf clubs, you are still required to buy them. If you refuse to buy a set or make claims that you can't afford them, you will be fined $800 until you purchase a set or face imprisonment.

    People living in farming areas, ghettos, inner cities, Wyoming, or areas with no access to golf courses are not exempt. Age, health, prior experience or no experience are not acceptable excuses for not buying, maintaining, and using your golf clubs.

    “David Wildstein, who resigned his Port Authority post late last year, said in a letter that he had proof of the ‘inaccuracy’ of some of Christie's statements about the so-called ‘Bridgegate’ scandal"

    And I suppose that simply because a disgruntled ex-appointee he has said something against Christie that it is the flat out, full truth and nothing but the truth.

    Obama also said 'if you like your doctor, you can keep him'. ‘If you like your policy, you can keep it’. Turned out that wasn't true either, and he knew it when he said it. Politicians lie all the time, often for self-protection, too often for self-aggrandizement and often just for the money or power.

    You keep saying that all the lies told about the IRS and Benghazi will be found to be lies and Obama and Clinton will be vindicated, just wait for all the facts. You don’t seem to be of that opinion about Christie though.

    I don't like Christie. He is another wanna be conservative, but you shouldn't be watering the hanging tree just yet. How about we wait until the investigation is complete. I don't expect it will be complete prior to the mid-term elections though; it is too much of a political storm, too much innuendo to play with until election time.

    Roosevelt simply ignored and tradition of only serving twice. It is now the law. It would take an amendment to the Constitution for Obama or anyone else to serve more than two terms. Would I put it past him to try and end run or to push for such and amendment, nope!

    I fully expect someone on his staff to raise the question before he is out of office.

    Even Dirty Harry is starting to push away from Obama, like on his desire for fast tracking trade agreements. Obama's philosophy is that if they don't do what I want, I will do it myself flies in the face of our entire system of government. His job is to lead, to negotiate, to compromise if necessary to gain the best interest of the American people, not to dictate what he wants done. He is no genius, he is not perfect and he is anything but a true leader.

    Just a few more and there are even more out there.

    In a speech to the AFL-CI

    "I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer health care plan. The United States of America--the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent--14 percent of its gross national product on health care and cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody and that's what Jim is talking about when he says, 'Everybody in. Nobody out.' A single payer health care credit--universal healthcare credit. That's what I'd like to see, but as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House and we've got to take back the Senate and we've got to take back the House."

    Rep. Barney Frank (D - MA) - 7/27/09
    "I think if we get a good public option, it could lead to single payer and that's the best way to reach single payer."

    Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D - IL) - 4/18/09
    "And next to me was a guy from the insurance company who then argued against the public health insurance option saying, 'It wouldn't let private insurance compete--that a public option will put the private insurance industry out of business and lead to single payer.' He was right. The man was right."

    Jan. 29th 2008, he said in a speech that he prefers a single payer health care system. Go find it, I just did.
