Moonbases for Moonbats.

Share
 

 [PopUpFad=GROUP=widget:RANDOM=NO:SESSION=NO] In January of 2004, word leaked that President Bush planned to propose building a permanent base on the moon in his upcoming State of the Union address, to be used as a stepping stone to a manned mission to Mars by 2020. The idea was so poorly received and regarded so incredibly tone-deaf at a time when […]

Responding to Stupid. Republicans ‘correcting’ Democrats need a clue

Share
 

 Special post-SotU Edition Listening to Bush’s Budget Director… Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels… lecture President Obama on the size of the deficit was like being lectured to on political ethics by Richard Nixon. When President Bush took office, he had a budget surplus and the government was on track to pay off the Debt by 2014. Instead, the Debt exploded […]

Boehner Called out on “Do-Nothing” Congress. “Jobs” Plan is exactly what you think it is… and less.

 When will these people figure out they’re not fooling anyone? Speaker of the House John Boehner appeared on Fox “news” Sunday yesterday and received (what qualifies as) sharp criticism from host Chris Wallace on the abysmal record of this “Do-Nothing Congress”:   Get the latest Flash Player to see this player.

The unspoken subtext of Gingrich and Perry’s attacks on Romney: THEY KNOW Cannibalistic Capitalism is Wrong.

Share
 

 They KNOW. And it’s clear now that they’ve always known but didn’t care. In an all-out effort to stop Mitt Romney from locking up the GOP nomination almost before the race has even started, fleeting former favorites Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry have taken to criticizing just how Romney made his fortune: as a Corporate Raider that bought […]

Romney said WHAT about Insurance? This one will make you angry. (video)

 Sometimes someone says something so bizarre… so disconnected from reality… that it makes you stop dead in your tracks and shout “WHAT???” Such was the case Tuesday as NBC’s Andrea Mitchell chased after GOP front-runner Mitt Romney the day of the New Hampshire Primary to ask him about his “I like to fire people” gaffe.

Santorum? Really? Nope, I guess not. NH primary will reveal what we’ve all known.

 [PopUpFad=GROUP=widget:RANDOM=NO:SESSION=NO] Tuesday will be the first “race that counts” of the 2012 Election… one in which actual delegates are awarded to each candidate. And the first to 1144, “wins”. So every primary for the next six months is a big deal. And the closer the race, the longer it will take for any delegate to […]
