Your response to me is so full of lies and mistruths it is hard to even know where to begin. Great liberal talking points, but like most liberal talking points, there is no truth to them. The economy was stagnant under Bush? prove it. We were at full employment for years due to the tax cuts. And it would have been stronger if the democratic congress would ever have allowed them to be “permanent” which they never would. As far as the collapse, the collapse occurred to to the Community Reinvestment Act passed by Clinton forcing banks to lend to people who couldnt afford it to get FED resources. Bush tried to audit FNMA and FDMC twice in 2004 and 2005 and was turned away “nothing to see here” by Shumer and Barney Frank. That could have slowed down the housing bubble dramatically and possibly even entirely prevented the collapse. As far as “only the rich got richer” that is absurd. Under Reagan and Bush both the tax base was increased incredibly with all the new employment. Unlike Obama where many middle americans net worth has decreased by as much as 40% since 2008 and he just continues to tax them more and more, and only the wealthy can afford it.
Your lies and lack of knowledge are appalling but not entirely unexpected as you don’t require facts for your talking points it is simply “blame the rich” “blame the oil companies” “blame bush” “blame conservatives” “obama can do no wrong”, etc. etc.
YAWN! Feel free to keep discussing, don’t let the facts get in.

Where is Eric Holder here inspecting a racial hate crime? Oh wait, they are black. We all know that only white people are racist haters.

“After seeking and receiving a two week extension from the Committee, Secretary Clinton failed to provide a single new document to the subpoena issued by the Committee and refused to provide her private server to the Inspector General for the State Department or any other independent arbiter for analysis,” Gowdy said.”
How about throwing her in jail for contempt of congress? Keep her there until she produces the destroyed emails. If she can’t or won’t produce them, well, 3 squares a day for life should trim some of the cankles.

Just like conservative America under the current regime!

“She’s the definition of a leader”
It must be that Native American blood she has in her. Or is it her honest and trustworthy approach to transparency?

A congressman promoting people to break the law. Abuse of public position? I wonder if he used taxpayer funds to create the cards and pamphlets?
It sure seems like there is some prosecutable criminal offense in what he is doing.

he should get the death penalty for deserting in time of war, but life sentence at worst. Despicable person who loves the enemy. Barry is being forced into a corner to actually admit how horrible his leadership is.
Because ovomit made a big deal out of his return and has defended the release of the five scum, he won't allow the military to render a guilty verdict. He knows who will be on the panel and pressure will be brought on them.
This is simply a show trial to demonstrate how 'fair' obammy is. He will walk.

LOL that is one of the silliest comments you have ever made, and that is saying something.
Lowering taxes increases the tax base and actually increases revenue because of that because it creates a climate of job creation and job growth. People work more when they can keep more of what they work for, that has been proven over and over. Your “analysis” and I put it in quotes because it is coming from a complete lack of any foundational knowledge of how economics work or what motivates people to put forth their best effort, is rediculous. The fact that 22 people even agree with you shows the dumbing down of America and how people no longer even understand how economics work.
It can be proven over and over how raising taxes decreases revenue as a percentage of GDP and vice versa. Yes, all of Obama’s taxes are giving the federal government more revenue per quarter than it has ever had before, but at what cost? It is crushing everyone but the very wealthy, destroying job opportunities, entrepreneurship is at its lowest level in decades, innovation is almost non-existent. This is like USSR telling farmer to grow their acre of food, give 90 % to the govt and 10 % for themselves. the 10% of the acre for themselves? huge returns, the 90%, a bunch of bad gardeners.

the good thing is that a lot of those “Takers” don’t vote. The country is still predominantly center right, they just haven’t been given a chance to prove that in national elections. 2010 and 2014 showed their disgust. As long as they refuse to keep pushing “unelectable” conservatives, we keep driving off the cliff. Cruz may not be “The Great Communicator”, but I think he is even more Reaganesque than Reagan was. I lived in the Reagan years. He wasn’t electable either, yet he won in landslides. I believe while Cruz may not have the communication skills of Reagon, he has the passion, the love for America, the knowledge and the acumen to smash his opponents and can do it strictly on the issues, he doesn’t have to go negative or get personal. That is why everyone on both sides is afraid. This could be a true wave in 2016. I am awaiting the debates to start more than I have been in years and years. Even in interviews he is making the interviewers look like idiots and jokes already and doing it all with facts and a calm smile.

I disagree. not a good VP choice, if he isn’t something like AG, better to keep his voice in the house, VP is mostly irrelevant other than to get votes, and Ted won’t need votes from Louie. It isn’t even constitutionally clear if the Prez and VP can come from the same state.
Someone like Marco Rubio would be a much better VP choice among several others

How about Secretary of the Interior or secretary of energy (position and dept that should be killed tho) for Palin?
Secretary of state? John bolton.
Secretary of Defense, Colonel West.
Surgeon General (position that should be eliminated) Ben Carson
Secretary of the Treasury? Rand Paul..wipe out the fed and IRS!
AG? Louie or Trey
what a heck of a start that would be for his cabinet….
 March 26, 2015 at 9:47pm
I wouldn’t have any issue with either of those choices. The main thing we have to be careful of is not to pull out too many of the “good folks” out of congress as we are just now starting to get real numbers against the progressives that are making a difference.
 March 26, 2015 at 9:27pm
Louie is going to make a magnificent Attorney General in President Cruz’ cabinet!
Trey Gowdy might be a better US AG... and Gohmert a better Speaker of the House.
Lets face it, like all other issues since Bammy took office, not a damn thing will be done with this. Period.
Issue after issue. Scandal after scandal. Broken Constitutional law after broken constitutional law. Year after year. What has been done? Who has been held accountable for anything? Nothing, crickets.
This is window dressing and we have been taken and nothing we can do about it, not even voting will help since that is fixed also. This is a sham. America is done at this point.
On this Louie served it up slammed him out of park, schooled!
That was clear enough….but this dip still thinks things are murky, so they’ll just have to continue retaining control.

Well, I would disagree with that, but I think today he was so disgusted with Grover that he had a very difficult time keeping it professional and at times become condescending to downright snarky and while he nailed him on several points it diminished the impact because his attitude was making him part of the story. We all knew he was going to have a difficult time being objective, but I did think he would contain it better and make many of Grover’s laughable explanations just go because they needed no instant reaction to be shown as nonsensical and defenseless.
 March 26, 2015 at 6:47pm
I dunno, I think the guy is guilty as sin with his associations, but I don’t thing He got his Azz handed to him. I think Beck got too emotionally involved with the interview and instead of letting him hang himself as he was doing and Glenn was asking good questions, but he looked petty and small with all the snarky comments and attitude he had. That diminished the impact of how ridiculous his attempts at explanation were.
Beck left the field of reason a long time ago.....He runs on emotion now.

Glenn is passionate in case you didn't know.

There’s a big difference between marching in a PUBLIC area and owning a PRIVATE business. In your business you should have the right to server or not serve whomever you choose. If the community disagrees with your point of view they will choose to shop elsewhere and your business will fail. If you choose not to serve black customers, then someone else comes and opens a similar business to yours that will, then people will choose where they want to spend their money. No one should be forced to go against their conscience and morals. Tolerance means even accepting that views that are different than yours have a right to exist. Tolerance isn’t just the fact that extremist or unusual views are now acceptable, but unpopular views must be allowed as well.

It wasn’t stupid. It was him keeping a campaign promise. No one would take those 5 scumbags so he had to find a way to get them out of Gitmo. Now it will be easier to get it closed without those who should be there forever. It wouldn’t surprise me if the Taliban just wanted cash for Bergdahl and it was his crack negotiating squad (you know, the ones giving iran centrifuges and the bomb in 10 years and 2 weeks) that proposed giving them back all their generals.
 March 26, 2015 at 3:05pm
Just when I think they can’t do anything else that will surprise me, the continue to stoop to new lows. And they aren’t even quiet about it anymore. They are simply in our facing saying “Screw you, we will do what we want to move our agenda and people forward”
Now you all see what the “Move Forward” slogan really means.

Wow, someone from the other side actually being an honest broker. Who would have thought? Kudos to her.
The other side? I assume you mean that she supports gay marriage being legal? Which indicates that you do not.
There are plenty of us who believe exactly as she does. Gays should be able to marry, and bakers should not be forced to bake cakes for their weddings. This is not a difficult concept.
The difficult concepts to understand are:
1. Why anyone would want to force bakers to bake cakes for gay weddings.
2. Why anyone would want to make gay marriage illegal.
Here's my question. Why does anyone need permission from the government to be married? Why did I need to get a marriage license? Shouldn't I have simply gotten married, then told the government, "Hey guess what, I'm now married."
