“What extremists, tool? We THINKING American Patriots cannot fathom why our friends on the right can't figure out that all three entities you listed (although minus the actual facts about them) are fully owned subsidiaries of the same dark force - Rupert Murdoch (WSJ + Fox News) and through a tangled mess of their own making, his friends in the GOP (the so-called grassroot "tea party nation"). It's so obvious...”
“Sorry OldHenry - you're seeing things that aren't there. Listen again, and watch the captions. The President speaks of "first time voters"... There is no "further balkanizing" going on. Don't make stuff up.”
“Good lord. What will they think of next? I saw absolutely NOTHING wrong with that message - but if you're a paranoid schitzo like Rushbo and Washington Examiner staffers, I guess you could see all kinds of monsters under the bed...”

“just put the same massage on other potus mouth and lets see how the left just jump all over them.”

“I will help you with what is wrong with the message.
It is bad for the country for us to allow ourselves to be carved up into groups and pitted against one another. It is particularly wrong for the president to participate in this sort of behavior.”
“Shocking. Not. Just finished reading Glen Greenwald's, "Great American Hypocrites" that details the Grand Old Party's propaganda machine that spawned such "heroes" as John Wayne, Ronald Reagan and John McCain. Nothing about the Grandiose Old Poobahs surprises me now...”

“John Wayne's real name: Marion Morrison. Yet Orange County named an airport after his stage name.”
“Tough call - do the rights of the individual under the Constitution outweigh the "rights" of animals, which have no constitution or voice of their own? The majority ruled correctly, I believe. It's up to the states now to make laws against people profitting by the cruelty against animals.”

“It's not even about that. It's solely about the law was too broad - it could have included hunting videos and PETA videos etc. If they narrowed the law it would probably stand.”

“Yeah, I also agree with the ruling in the context of free speech, but this is disgusting.”
“Freedom Works: "We know that infiltrators might be coming to our tea parties. But remember last April 15th; the idea that the tea parties would be infiltrated in the same way was all over the news. The results? Virtually no infiltration. We know they might be coming, and they know we know. And they know we are ready."
We know that they know that we know that they know.
The tea partiers expected "infiltrators", and seem disappointed that none showed up to prove their paranoid theory. But liberals don't need, or want, to confront these weak-minded, pathetically misinformed individuals. We realize that there is no single, simplistic answer to the problems we face as a society, and we see a variety of causes of our problems, and we know that there are many solutions. So we look for ways to pragmatically attack the problems, find solutions and change the status quo.
Not so the tea partiers. Their single-mindedness devolves them to a paranoid state that only allows them to consider their own (skewed) viewpoint, and they seem to believe that their simplistic rhetorical calls to attack that which they don't fully comprehend MUST be the ONLY way. Their "in your face" style cannot effect the change they seek - their numbers are not growing, they're shrinking, and their power was only in their numbers, not their message.”

“"We know that they know that we know that they know" .... hillarious I just spit coffee out of my nose.”
“Do we have to refer to them as a "Christian" militia? I'm pretty sure that Christ would NOT have called them "His" people. Let's just refer to them by what they really are: Anti-American home-grown terrorists.”

“They refer to themselves as a Christian Militia. It is not up to us to change that because you don't like it.”
“Tell us, BestGuest, where you did the research to conclude that "Your Govt. is involved in this hand and foot... From Bill Clinton to GW Bush to Obama"... And why do you suppose the Obama administration would expose the whole mess? Suicide by politics?”
“"Conservative women: they're smarter than you and they're hotter than you!"
Poor guy. Must not know many women... My leftie girlfriend is smoking hot, and could beat failin' Palin in any intellectual debate. AND she has a sweet, sexy voice, never whines, and doesn't charge people to hear her complain about stuff... She actually works for a living.”
