      I really hate the Head-Banging Music,

      I prefer a little Romantico Music.

      Can we get this same information out with a little

      Barry White or
      Elvis or
      Hank Williams Jr or

        Amazing contrast between Obama's 'Freeloading' message, and President John Kennedy's message of ...

        "ASK NOT WHAT YOUR COUNTRY CAN DO FOR YOU, ASK WHAT YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR COUNTRY" ...

        Kennedy instilled pride, productivity, and unity ... Obama promotes blame, envy, economic decline, and division.

        It might be time to go after Liberal Blogs and Web Sites.

        Can you guys tell me where, a Warrior, such as the many folks here have shown, should go to get fewer and fewer folks to agree with the white/Kenyan?

        Or was that the 1/32nd Cherokee/American (The Lady,,, ahem,,, person losing in her attempted Entitled Senate Seat?)

        It looks like our work here is done!
        Only Bowling Retards are Here (Obummer bowls like a retard)

        Oh, white/Kenyan is Obummer,,,,

        You may know of the white/Hispanic.

      You're absolutely right. How dare the president take a few minutes to congratulate that team who worked so hard all year to win that title in front of the nation. God forbid a voter should spend time taking pictures with their president. Shame on him and every single other politician for ever doing anything other than working. Having fun....... how dare he. Smiling???? What a communist! Posing for a picture??? What a country destroyer!

        Shame on Antoinette!

        Why isn't Michelle Obummer sending HER KIDS to the pathetic PUBLIC SCHOOLS in Washington, DC????

        If she did, the Public Schools would be a lot better! AT LEAST SAFER!

        Must have something to do with the Department of Education, the NEA, the Teachers' Unions, the Teachers looking to take us into Communism and Socialism and Big Government Tyranny.

        Oh, and the Elites get to send THEIR KIDS to Private Schools,,, unlike you and your children!

        Might be time to calculate the COST OF FREEDOM,,, and the COST of LIVING LIKE North Koreans, Greecians, and the French.... Well can we include Cubans, Haitians, Venezuelans, and all the others that want to FREE-LOAD off of those that work?

        That way we wouldn't have to see their UnHappy Faces!

You'd be more appealing to the opposite gender if were an intelligent Dem or Independent,try getting on the winning side with women,republicans aren't,just sayin,LMAO!!!And please with the cap lock,don't be mad,I can read.@1 free world,are you practising brainwashing,like on the Manchurian Candidate,the movie ,on your fellow republican sheep because its just getting me sick of your political antiObama bullshit,that's all!!!It's just a waste of your time in the gran scheme of things because intelligent people don't need pics and other propaganda from you trying to change our minds,we're smart,we don't need ya.I've told you political hypocrites all along ,just read about your past republican presidents,from Hoover on ,and you'll see just how inept politically and economically they were with Democrates always there to fix up after their presidencial blunders.I know its hard when you're in such political denile,but its takes someone with GUTS to step in the middle of this fight and be the referee.Republicans homework assignment is reading how much your party of NO has NOT DONE for this country, and read how Roosevelt,Kennedy,Carter,Clinton and Pres.Obama have done at ressurrecting prosperity and pride in this country.Good day boys and girls,reading facts is fun,politically speaking,ta ta!!!

        @jerry,he also gave India ,Pakistan and China till June 28 to change direction on these problems or he will cut off relations with these countries.He also told them if they didn't stop recieving oil from Iran,sanctions would start on all involved.China was warned ,as well as Russia for the arms deals to Assad...He has to start a war in Syria to make you warhawks happy,is that what ya want,that's all republicans seem ta want,wars and recessions.You're not happy till someone,somewhere is suffering,if its not here then where the hell next,you tell me.Blood is already on your republicans hands for Iraq and Afghanistan,want more!!!Obama wants peace thru diplomacy,you bastards want to push the button,don't ya,Bush and Cheneys did remember!!Over 4500 dead with lies,I hope your happy,yours weren't there,some of my family and friends were,so screw off,jackoffs...

    today obama kicked off his campaign (he has been in full campaign mode since last September) at Ohio State to a less than a half full arena....obamas handlers had to move people down near the floor seats to make it look like the room was full...you notice all of the photos of this event(if you can call it an event) don't show the complete arena... this is a very strong indication as to the trouble obama is in...he got a boost from the youth vote in his last election. obama is circling the drain and then back to the sewer.

The problem is that your infatuation, and delusions, for this empty suit, exceed your love for America !!! Pete, Americans are waking up to what a complete phony Barack Obama is, and how destructive he is to this country. That's why, in November, Obama will finally be exorcised, removed, flushed, and dumped ... allowing America to once again return to its former prosperity, and status, as the greatest country in the world.

      apparently one belongs to the GOP IF THEY TAKE ISSUE WITH OBAMAs destroying America....I have news for you...Democrats are moving to Mitt Romney in groves. Mitt is center right and REAL deems know it. We have had three years with a president who has done nothing but tear this country apart...enough is enough.

      currently obama/binden are raising the gay marriage thing, a desperate move...they are in big trouble and really scratching...their only hope is to continue their politics of division...continue to rip this country apart....wont work!

    They'll take care of it,its being straightened out as we speak and you shouldn't talk about anyone tearing apart America .Only as well as your ignorent example of a president Bush.With his lies of WMDs,causing wars that killed thousands of American men and women with no funding from revenues,but are no-bid contracted awarded to then VP Cheneys,that was still CEO of HALLIBURTON,isn't that illegal,isn't that a conflict of interest on him and his buds Bushs fault.O,I'm sorry,that's old news,ya,and that clown is why we are in this mess financially,politically and just gaining our respect back with our foriegn policy,not Bushs.Bush Jr,exdirector of Carlyle Corporation,a BinLaden owned business,based in N.Y.So before you go telling me I know,and other BS,sit back ,all you hypocrites and just remember,remember who put US here,your republican hero and enemy of the United States,GWBush Jr.And do me a favor,read up on all the affiliations he had with that BinLaden fellow and he ,Bush ,thinks he's a patriot.Also check out the indictments on Bush for human rights violations put forth by the Geneva Convention,his arrest is imminent if he leaves stateside,he's lucky he didn't get caught in Haiti with Clinton last year...And that's just ONE REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT,ya don't want me to tell people of your other republican screwups,do ya??Do some reading on presidencial history and their blunders,you'd be surprised how many republicans made the list!!!
