Will be interesting if Cruz becomes president and repeals “every word of Obamacare”. Today he said that HE would be signing up for Obamacare. WHY? Because his wife has taken leave from her high-paying job at Goldman-Sachs…..therefore her family insurance is no more….so the family has no insurance. And when this bill was being debated before passage, the GOP members said well if it’s so good, then Congress should have to have it. The democrats agreed that was a good idea and it was written into the law…..that members of Congress who were not covered by Medicare or their spouse’s job…..would be required to sign up for Obamacare. Soooooooo, if Cruz at some point repeals the law……he has to go search for insurance… of course, I am sure Congress would change something…..so that their members could keep what they had….even if it was the hated healthcare program. Congress messed up – should have made it just like Medicare. It’s funny that people HATE government healthcare……then when they turn 65….they LOVE it !!

Don’t need a book dearie….I LIVED thru Johnson…. Was not popular at first, but ended up doing a LOT of great things that still help a LOT of Americans.

Well…..I am white and retired…..born, raised and never lived anywhere but Texas…..and proud of it. BUT……the last few years we have seen quite a lot of “crazy” radical people get elected here. Where is the great Democrat Lyndon Johnson? We could use his common sense about now.
Hey, you have a president who is trying to lose wars left and right. Just like Johnson. What more do you want?
Great Democrat LBJ ?!?!?!?!
Buy a new history book, son.

My oh my…. if only people here would watch REAL news….you would have seen many western women greeted by Saudi with NO headcovers. Examples —- PM of Germany Merkel, Condi Rice, Madeline Albright, Hillary Clinton…..and of course, Laura Bush……because it is NOT required to cover your head if you are a visiting western women. Mrs. Obama DID cover her head in Indonesia…..because she visited a Mosque….out of respect to other religions, traditions and culture. Obviously a lot of those here do not know what respect means……or there would not be so much vulgar, nasty and hate filled language on this site.

Rachel Maddow is the BEST by far on any network…Chris Hayes a close second. Both are super, super smart….and actually nice people who do not call filthy names. They present the news….both sides….with evidence and sources….and Rachel always has a sense of humor. Some FOX people are just so depressing and doom and gloom all the time….and full of hate….YUCK. Lighten up people….get a life and listen to the truth.
You have them confused. Maddow is the male version of Hayes.
Rachel Madcow is the BEST? LMAO What does that lezbo know about deflating balls anyhoo?

You have NO IDEA anything about me. FYI…..all you guessed about me above…is false. I also grew up poor……went to college, am NOT a victim…..am NOT usually a liberal….am NOT young anymore. Thanks for proving my point…..Bye

Just checking this and found the usual stuff. Most people here are already name-calling, using vulgar language and showing their lack of knowledge. Most are sitting around waiting for Blaze people or FOX people to tell them what they should believe……lots will not even bother to listen to our President and never have in 6 years. Most are like little lambs blindly following those who hate. Since the same party has not held the White House for three straight terms in about 60 plus years…….better be careful what you ask for in 2016. Yes, you think it will be better…….hope you are independently wealthy and need no Medicare, Social Security and can pay lots of taxes since you are rich. Money does NOT “trickle down”……it has to build up from the middle class…..which we will slowly lose when GOP takes over in 2016. Happy sitting and being angry and mad tonight and spewing hate-filled vulgar speech ……what will it get you in the long run?
Did you expect anything else? I've learned that rational discussions are few and far between here.
Right now I am getting my arugula and various other Michelle Obama approved snacks for the speech...
I grew up dirt poor, sent myself to college...worked hard and jumped from poor to upper middle class...Now, I get to fund those who reject hard work and self determination...Grow the Ffff UP and make something of yourself Libbie...Stop being a Professional Victim like the Liberal Democrats tell you, you are...
BTW: Once gubmint gets involved in ANYTHING, most of all student loans...the prices for schools sky rocketed. Why?? Because there is NO competition between banks to give out loans...The gubmint is the sole source loan shark...Now our young people are basically indentured servants saddled with debt owed to the gubmint right out of college...
LOL - so, you decided to join the name calling and show your lack of knowledge. No one tells me what to believe. And, as a CONSERVATIVE, it is vital that I listen to what the President has to say. If you can't say nuthin' nice ::draws in breath:: don't say nuthin' at all.

The health care law…..is just that….LAW….passed and approved by a majority and the Supreme Court. Republicans had their chance to elect Romney and perhaps repeal the law….slim chance, but maybe. BUT they lost the election and continue to obstruct any and everything our President is for. They do not offer another solution to our country’s healthcare problems…….don’t even offer to discuss how to change this law and make it better…..just throw it out. They want to go back to what we had….insurance companies turning people away for even minor health problems, putting caps on the limits you can receive, etc. In some polls where people were asked whether they wanted the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare…….the majority want the Affordable Care Act…….ONLY because Obama’s NAME was on the other question. They do not even know or understand…..both are the SAME thing. Sad people…… And when the Republicans do win in 2016 and try to repeal the law…..better be ready to explain to millions of people why it’s a good thing to make people give up insurance……and the common people go back to paying for the ER visits for those who cannot pay.
February 1, 2014 at 2:58pm
Oh my gosh…….when the commercial first came out several months ago…..many radicals were attacking it…….because it showed a biracial family. And now you object to this “tweet”?? which merely stated the truth. MSNBC fires those who say anything slightly offensive…..and yet FOX and Blaze KEEPS those who spew vile, vulgar personal attacks and mock the president and anyone who voted for him daily. You are so full of hate, you cannot even see the truth of how you yourselves act.
April 10, 2013 at 9:28pm
All this fuss about Melissa Harris-Perry is NUTS. Most people commenting on this site don’t have a CLUE what she is saying. No one is taking your children.. Those of you who do not want a good education for all children, do not want safe food to eat, do not want healthcare for everyone….try living without all that. The constant name-calling and ranting about her or anyone who voted for President Obama just proves your immaturity, lack of respect and lack of knowledge about what is really happening in our country….because you insist on following only those who agree with you….NOT finding out the truth. It is very hard to explain things to people who don’t have, and don’t want, a basic understanding of our country. By the way, I am a white senior citizen living in a very RED state……the kind you don’t think supports Obama……WRONG. Bye…have fun in your depressing, hate-filled, doomsday world.
no one wants to take our children. (like CPS does to homeschooling families)..just like no one wants to take our guns (like they are in New York), .. sorry if the world isn't sunshine and roses for you princess... I'd rather be an informed participant in the future, than an ostrich with my head in the sand...waiting to be a slave.
January 25, 2013 at 11:15pm
ALL children and family members of ALL presidents….both Republican and Democratic…..have Secret Service protection. That is understood by every person with a brain….and any knowledge of our country. Obama WANTS all schools protected….let’s see if the GOP congress will support him on this….and give him funding. Private schools have much more money than public school….because they CHARGE a BIG TUITION to attend….and afford things public school cannot because of GOP budget cuts.
Public schools get tax payers money!! I pay for those schools!! Oh, and pray tell what is obama's big plan to protect children in school that the GOP has to "support" him on?? I haven't heard a plan from him yet except for gun control and any idiot knows that's not a "plan" to help! Think with your brain!!! That's why God gave you one!
January 25, 2013 at 9:16pm
The facts: The president’s daughters school has 11 people listed as working in their security department….NONE armed with military style weapons……5 police, 2 on-call police, 2 week-end shift,1 security officer, 1 chief of security. After the NRA ad came out….many parents, students and teachers were contacted and NONE had ever seen or heard of these “armed guards” at the school. The school was started by Quakers with the intention of instilling character values in their students. MANY children of Congressmen and other government officials….BOTH Dem and GOP….attend the school because it has much experience in dealing with Secret Service and protecting the privacy of their students. This is a private school that can afford to pay for security. MANY public schools have armed police, etc. So your charge that ONLY President’s kids are protected is just….false. Obama has asked for money to help public schools pay for more security….let’s see if the GOP house will approve that.
January 23, 2013 at 5:26pm
Hillary Clinton did an excellent job today responding to radical GOP who only want to twist things around and try to make her and anyone associated with this administration look bad in any way they can. These are the same people who accused her of faking a concussion and blood clot. She did extremely well…..I was very happy to see her “blow up” a few times……and not just sit there and listen to more lies and attacks.
They need to grow up and realize the Democrats actually WON the last two presidential elections….and stop throwing their fits like toddlers. Yea Hillary !!!! Today you won also…..
January 16, 2013 at 9:49pm
This video by the NRA is beyond stupid and bad. Every American with any sense knows that our presidents AND their families have had protection since the beginning…no matter where they are.There are people who want their 15 minutes of “fame” by shooting a president or family member….and some have actually suceeded. Most of our larger….and many smaller…schools already have armed police or guards. But they cannot do much against a “bad” buy with hundreds of bullets and rapid fire guns. And if EVERYONE carries a gun around….we become an armed military state.. No one wants to ban ALL guns….just hopefully stop making so many military weapons readily available to just anyone…especially those with a problem….mental or stupidity. George HW Bush and Clinton and other recent presidents have issued executive orders on guns. But now that Pres. Obama does it…..OH NO !!!! He has no choice since the Congress is bought and paid for by NRA.
When was the last massacre with "military weapons"?
Do tell. Enlighten. So rare I don't remember the last time.
Military weapons are NOT readily available to anyone. And the guns that were used in the massacres from Columbine to Newtown were not "rapid fire". this is gross misinformation being fed to you by the MSM. The rifles/handguns used were semi-automatic, meaning one trigger pull, one bullet. And in case you forgot, Columbine occurred during the 1st Assault weapons ban--lotta good that did huh. When you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. None of the laws in place stopped any of these shooters, what makes you think more laws will? Criminals dont care about laws!
Presidents and their families didn't always have armed guards....You don't know a lot about what your talking about it seems, it was after a few incidents armed guards and security were thought of. Wtf is a rapid fire gun? That could literally mean every gun ever made. Also, if everyone carried a gun, we don't become an armed military state, just an armed public which isn't a bad thing. Military weapons aren't available easily,cheapily, or readily to any civilian. You have no point and don't know what your talking about, go to the back of the line.
What is your definition of a military weapon? What is the fine line between military and civilian?
October 18, 2012 at 6:07pm
Hummmmm………does this mean that now ANY and ALL religions and faiths are free to display banners at their public school or school actuvity??
It damn well ought to, and so I hope atheists come out with banners citing the ridiculousness of faith in an entity for which there is no evidence that He exists, and Muslims and Jews come out... Muslims with signs in Arabic proclaiming Allahu Akbar, and Jews with signs saying Jesus was not the Messiah. I wonder how staunchly the Christians will support religious speech at schools then.
Chris, what you're advocating is nor freedom of religion, but hate.
Chris, with all that hate, you should join the Westboro Baptist church!
I am not advocating hate, I am advocating vigorous debate brought about by different religions taking full advantage of their right to free speech. If you see that as hate, then I dunno what to tell you. The 'signs' I have mentioned are legitimate points from the atheist point of view, the Muslim point of view and the orthodox Jew point of view, so... where is the hate? Oh that's right. You're projecting it onto me because you don't recognize it in yourself.
DEFCON, the only thing I hate is willful ignorance and evil. Typically where you find one, you find the other.
Wrong. The signs you are promoting are aimed for an audience or group that is in actual debate or discussion, and are made to cause heated controversy. The signs those students are holding up are nothing like you have proposed. These students have more honor than you, in that they made signs to peacefully express themselves and to *share* *their* faith, wihout attacking anyone. They are not mocking or spouting discord or hate against anyone, unlike what you propose. The statements you provide might be legit in an actual discussion or argument as the one we're having here, wherein the forum is open, but they would be innapropiate in a school setting wherin their intent is not to debate theology or religion. NO SCHOOL, whether religious or non religious, would allow your signs to be displayed, they are volatile and hostile.
It will be fun to watch you try and scramble and justify that a Muslim holding up a sign saying "Allahu Akbar" or "The only God is Allah" is intentionally inflammatory. It would simply be a categorical declaration of their belief. And as you and others have said here, the 1st amendment does not protect some supposed right to NOT be offended, right? So if you are offended by a person of another faith making such declarative statements, do you lay the blame for the offense on the person holding the sign declaring their faith, or the offended? You can't have it both ways.
You're confusing a school setting, in a school environtment, in this instance, a football game on a highschool field, with an open forum wherein people are there to actually debate, disscuss and question everything and anything stated. Kids in this school are simply encouraging each other, and peacefully sharing what gives them strentgh. That's far from what you're stating. You can't yell "FIRE!" in a crowded theater for the purpose of causing mayhem and disorder.
You're taking everything to the extreme. There must be moderation. Mocking another faith is not allowed practically anywhere in public. You're taking things way out of context. If you don't get that, then you're stuck in some egotistical, self righteous, arrogant state of mind, to which I can't help.
A Muslim who went to the football holding up a sign that said, "Allahu Akbar", or God is great, would be doing nothing different than the cheerleaders are doing with their sign. There is NOTHING offensive about the words God is great to Christians, but because it would be talking about the Muslim God Allah, there would be an UPROAR, and you know it. So the manner of 'forum' is irrelevant. You claim to want religious freedom of speech, and yet in this instance you're claiming that a Muslim's freedom of speech (as I have described it) is not 'loving and good, but is intentionally inflammatory, and therefore not permissible on the school grounds, even at a football game. So you're once again trying to dance around and misrepresent the argument, either by design because you realize that you're not making anything even approaching a cogent argument, or out of sheer inability to understand... or disability in reading comprehension. I'll leave you to decide.
I was referring to these comments made by you:
"Since everyone here is so pro-free speech on the heels of your tremendous victory, I hope that a courageous atheist (or 100) in that neck of the woods will start coming to those football games with huge signs that say, “If God is real, He kills 65,000 children EVERY DAY through starvation!” Another one I’d like to see is “If God is real, then He is deaf to Christian amputees!” And another one I would love to see is this: “God loves you SO much that if you don’t love Him back, He will send you to burn in hell and misery and torture and anguish forever and ever and ever! Now THAT’S LOVE right there!! I find it sad and hilarious that you Christians demand the sanction of your religion by our government, like your relationship with your mythical daddy will die if you don’t get it. I also hope to see Jews show up with signs saying “Jesus was not the Messiah,” and Muslims showing up with signs that say “Allah is the ONLY God.” I wonder how staunchly Christians will support religious speech in schools then."
Your comments DONT compare to anything these students did.

I knew I would get a reaction like yours from people who don’t understand….and don’t WANT to understand. Keep acting like a two yr old throwing a fit and calling names and ranting and raving. Oh, and I happen to watch many networks, etc…including FOX. Anyone who blocks out news organizations because the organization says something they do not agree with…….well, they can be led around by anyone….because people who do not know anything….believe anything. I cannot understand why anyone except the very, very rich would want the GOP plans…….maybe you are super rich….good for you….I am not.
July 9, 2012 at 8:40pm
Facts — Obama wants to raise tax rates on people making over 250,000 per year….from the 35% to 39%..which means if you make 2 million per year, your take home pay is $25,000 pre WEEK now…..and it would “fall” to $23,200 per week with the tax increase. Also, if you make between $50,000 and $100,000 per year……your taxes under the Ryan/Romney plan would INCREASE about $4400 per year. Gosh people….THINK for yourselves. Hard to believe that many hard-working honest folks would actually WANT the GOP plan. Try watching something other than FOX all day….and find out what is real. (The above numbers are not to the penny….so don’t say I figured it wrong….you get the idea.)
did you forget to add in obama's tax for death care? Maybe you should stop watching MSNBC! Also, obama wants to increase the number of IRS agents. What could possibly go wrong with that? Just like the POST OFFICE, and AM TRACK and CALIFORNIA, and the HIGH SPEED RAIL LINE, and last of all the UN, the IMFand FEDERAL RESERVE! What could possibly go wrong with believing anything obamanation of desolation believes or wants? I wouldn't listen to You and or obama if my life depended on it!.... He's nothing but a Liar!....

So tell me Rocket scientist. Would you sign something that was 2700 pages without reading it? Then we have the Gun running incident. Would you sell guns to Cartels to track them when you new they were going across the Boarder? Did they use GPS tracking, NO, instead they Holder and obama, decided they could get more gun control if they did it this way, and at the same time they could arm terrorists! But yet you would follow someone and listen to someone like that? What about Baine Capital? I bet you believe Romney sold thos businesses to make money and robbed the people blind? See your looking at it from your God "obamas" point of view! Maybe if you opened your eyes and stopped sniffing the Glue you'd realize Romney invested millions in these companies! The ones that weren't able to make money they sold off. As far as the 80% of the companies they invested in they're doing Great! Domino's Pizza was one Romney invested in! Yet you hear obama and seem to think Romney looted all the companies and fired everyone. Thats not the case! Baine spent billions on some companies only to find out they weren't sollvent! Kind of Like Solyndra and other Green companies that seem to go bankrupt! But the difference is this. Baine was a Govt. company, NO! Like I said Baine was the type that would go into Solyndra bail them out, and try to see if they could help save the company! If not they then pieced it out or sold it off losing millions on the investment!...

One thing for sure…..the other “co-hosts” on this show will be cordial and considerate of Cupp and her ideas……NOT like Beckel is treated on the FIVE. These “four” on MSNBC are all very intelligent people with strong ideas…..but are willing to listen to the opposing side without putting them down or calling names or making fun of people. Most FOX people are arrogant and unwilling to even hear someone else’s idea……hence, they will not even watch another channel or program.
June 21, 2012 at 5:55pm
Cupp has been on several MSNBC shows in past months…..always interesting. To those of you who watch ONLY Fox – it will be news to you that both CNN and MSNBC do have many conservatives/Republicans on many shows. Perhaps you will realize someday that real NEWS is on other networks…..whereas Fox broadcasts ONLY what they want you to believe….and so many blindly follow behind….not having a clue what is really happening. With those four in discussions, should be another interesting MSNBC program.
And how many times has MSNBC shows doctored tapes and straight out lied....and when they were caught still tried to deny it. Sorry but MSNBC is nothing but the Left's mouthpiece. As for a lot of those "Republicans"....they are called RINOs. But you are right you shouldn't get your news from one location and should look around for the news....but to say MSNBC and CNN actually reports news is far from the truth....
ANOTHERDAY...is this before or after "Mrs Greenspan" crops footage of Mitt Romney and mocks him on MSNBC?
Oh, yeah like NBC's Nightly News opening their show with the "Heat Wave" rather than the Eric Holder/Obama's executive priviledge story? THAT NEWS??? I agree you need to hear what the other side is saying, however, it would help if they said something worth listening too, instead of spending their time trying to defend this Administration's program and policies. Why do you think their viewership is so poor and getting worse. WAKE UP
Have you not noticed the the number of leftist like yourself that are on Fox on a daily basis? I am forced to watch MSNBC at the gym and there is nothing but left wing propaganda on.
Get a grip. The real news is not on any of the main stream media. Watch the news and then go out and you'll find what is important is what is not being reported. The powers that be don't want informed sheeple.
As for S.E. good for her. Better make hay while the sun shines and things can still be bought with the US dollar.
No major American News network produces real news--they are ALL shit, and that's EXACTLY their purpose. If ANY of them reported REAL news, it would conflict with the interests of those who pay for them in the first place--remember, they are ALL privately owned corporations, and they ALL have the same bottom line, profiting their creditors (creditors who probably play golf together and own stock in each others' news corporations). Under such a hierarchy, they CAN'T produce unbiased objective journalism even if they WANTED to.
Yeah, I believe you watch Fox, LOL! Go carry some more water for Obama, he who used to be a conservative Republican.
Real News is not on TV/Cable... You lose...
If that is your criticism of MSNBC, then I guess you must have FOX too. FOX hosts selectively edits clips and take quotes out of context all the time in order to distort what someone has said. They are also the mouthpiece of the Republican party.
To say that FOX reports real news is far from the truth.
"another interesting MSNBC program"
ANOTHER? Doesn't there have to be "ONE" for there to be "ANOTHER"
April 9, 2012 at 11:35pm
Oh my gosh!! Complaining about our President reading to children!! It would be an honor to have ANY president reading to my children or grandchildren…no matter what his party or policies. I cannot imagine saying “not allowing him near the children.”. Some people here have NO respect for the man OR the office and therefore…our country…..and what’s worse…..you are teaching your children to have no respect for anyone who doesn’t believe exactly like they do. I have seen our country survive presidents since FDR….good and bad…..but we’re still here. You have the right to say anything….thank goodness….but some today only call names and talk of doomsday because that’s what you hear from the radical right. Reagan and Ike could never have run as Republicans today…..the party has changed dramatically…and not for the best.
You're kind of missing the point. I'll write simply so you get it. You see, Obama is a master manipulator, a thief, a marxist, a bolshevik, a punk and an inciter of racial violence (won't prosecute Black Panthers who clearly break the law and threaten voters or put out bounties). Now, white Obama is no Manson or Dahmer or Amin, he is nonetheless not a good guy. I'd put him on par with a Castro or a Che. So, would I let Fidel read a book to my kids? No.
Story time is over Ms. Clueless.
Well said! Kudos to you for that.
Sorry big boy, but you're the one missing the point. First of all, try to avoid rudely replying a comment by someone so intellectually superior to you...it just makes you look like a total fool. Secondly, back in the day when Republicans were still honorable, broad-minded and visionary, you would be ranked among the fringe wackos in the McCarthy camp. And everyone knows how he ended up, nationally disgraced and a pathetic drunk. So for your own sake, just shut up would you?
AnotherDay..... you vegetable..... Reagan and Ike would be well at home. Conservatism is a philosophy, it never changes, its based on MORALS. Demoncrats are immoral, rat bastards, based on the big tent philosophy. Take your swill and shove it.
You are no to bright or you would see him as NOT a president but a muslin.
