1. And for chrissake, don't forget 9-11. American soil no less. Right through their fingers.

When you are an incompetent dry drunk imbecile half breed like gw people have low expectations.

President Obama is being held to the standard of Jesus of Nazareth miracle worker.

It's the republicant way.

2. Sales 101

Find your weakest point, advertise how superior you are to the competition in that one thing, then advertise how miserable the competition is with your weakest point.

3. I believe the Republican Party is self-destructing. Yes, it is frustrating watching the media give,

These clowns so much time to spew their distortions, but in the end, just like the election, we will win this, and sooner than later independents are going to start ignoring the republicans

4. Is that ever the truth.

My incredibly dense right-wing brother insists that 9/11 was Clinton's fault, 100%. It's simply unbelievable, they live in such a bizarro world.

6. A Personal Vendetta

The reason Grumpy McCain and his loyal lapdog Lindsey Graham are going after Rice is because she deservedly dissed him in 2008. Someone one needs to pointedly call him on that and also point out that he is the sorest loser in American history. Get over it Johnny boy; you lost!
