  1. Bill Kristol had the funniest Tweet today that set off tons of ha ha ha ha comments:

    BREAKING: British PM Cameron, in close reelection contest, has called WH to ask that Obama intervene against him.

  2. o may have to resign/not seen the last of Bibi. I mentioned on the other tread, that he did not even call to congradulate.
    o getting ready to sign off on this climate issue. Discussing with foreign leaders, and not advertising that he is. When will he do something that I can be proud of him?
    o sets censorship record. That shredder must be a “BIG ONE”. OK, who is in charge of that Dept. and when will we have another committee to look it to that?
    No T for them. Once again: I would like to ask: What the dickens is everyone telling their children that go along with everything he is up to?

  3. On the issue of Loretta Lynch,…McConnell needs to get rid of the nuclear option that Reid put in place and going back to the 60 vote majority it takes to confirm a nominee.

    If he doesn’t,…she will be the next AG.

    • Our meathead Sen. Dick Durbin commented that the Republ’s won’t vote for and don’t want Lynch as AG because… you guessed it, she’s black and a women!
      Tiresome and boring you are Dickie boy.

      • I don’t care about her color or her gender.
        Her ideology and the adherence to the Obama immigration policy does.
        She is nothing more than a female Eric Holder.

      • Yeah, because she’s black, Right, because she will be Obama’s slave, thats why they shouldn’t vote for her. She wants 20 million immigrants here to take our tax payers hard-earned money, benefits, welfare, etc. and to hell with the American citizens who can’t find a job and don’t have enough money to pay their rent and eat. Thats why. Get rid of her — do we need another anti-American in the Justice Department? We need someone who loves ALL the people that are LEGAL!!!
