Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid D-Nev. this morning blasted Speaker John Boehner for failing to bring the House of Representatives back to Washington to pass a deal on the fiscal cliff. “We are here in Washington working, while members of the House of Representatives are out watching movies and watching their kids play soccer and basketball and doing all kinds of things,” Reid said heatedly. Reid blamed Boehner for running the House of Representatives under a “dictatorship of the Speaker” insisting that he was more worried about keeping his Speakership than helping everyday Americans.
Comments: I just can´t even believe what I read anymore. We have the most incompetent, lying, hypocritical political hacks ever to run Washington. It is beyond frustrating. I don´t know how to reconcile four more years of this.
#5 is missing the point. A Demon-RAT can say anything, and their minions in the MSM will blare it all over the nightly news and headlines of every major paper in this country.
But the only places the Republicans can get any press when they try to fight back is on the Internet (on sites that are mainly read by other conservatives) and possibly on Fox news if it´s a really high-ranking Republican saying it.
If there was anywhere close to an unbiased news media out there, this type of idiocy would never go unchallenged. But when the news media is in one party´s back pockets, it just seems like the Republicans aren´t fighting back. They are fighting, but nobody hears about it.
Just last week didn´t Harry refuse to consider a fiscal bill then adjourn to view Lincoln? Look old and we mean old turning senile should be removed progressive you are not a Republican and you committed the movie screening act . You are the fickle child like destroyer.
Harry Reid is probably one of the nastiest, disgusting people on the face of the earth. When will he retire??? The sooner he retires the better for the country. Reid your old, your senile and most of all your a disgusting pig.

#8 you are wrong. Every elected official has local media in their districts to get their side out if they wanted. Not to mention talk radio, the internet blogs or if they would have any balls they would demand and call out by name the national media for being skewed. Guarantee if they start a war with Brian Williams, they will get noticed.
#13 misses, and just buys into the lie-beral trap.
I live in Austin. I know the state Republicans attack Demon-RAT hypocrisy on a daily basis. But get outside of Austin, and you never hear a word of that in the MSM. I have friends in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and El Paso, and they all believe just like #13 that our Republican representatives just sit there and take it. They don´t. But they get no press.
Listen to Hannity or Rush. They both have lots of Republicans on responding to Demon-RAT hypocrisy, but unless you listen to those shows or read conservative blogs, you never hear a world of that on the MSM.
And, sadly, the MSM is still where the majority of brain dead voters get their ´´news´´ every day.
As long as the MSM is a wholy owned subsidiary of the Demon-RATS, it will never be a level playing field. They will make every lie-beral sound like Job, and every conservative sound like a back water dufus. Spin, spin, spin.
Yes, #24. From what I remember, much voter fraud, mostly in Las Vegas, was what made Dingy retain his office. I´m thinking he wasn´t faring so well with all the voters except for the ones (illegals?) who were told by the union who to vote for or pack their bags. I don´t hate but I do come very close with him, Pelosi and Obama. It gets worse by the day.
When Barack Obama sings “Auld Lang Syne” on New Year’s Eve, he will have reason to think back, with a deep sense of nostalgia and not a small amount of regret, on the last time he sang the song. If he gets a lump in his throat as he recollects that glorious night one year ago, who would blame him? After all, he was riding about as high as a man can ride on New Year’s Eve 2012. There he was, almost literally the master of the universe — the canny victor of the 2012 election, having run what was
GLAAD says they have never gotten more angry phone calls and emails than they have since they decided to launch their attack on Phil Robertson, and escalated their speech and thought war against Christians at the same time. But Yahoo reports that they’re not apt to learn anything. The group still wants to re-educate Phil Robertson. After the meeting (between A&E executives and GLAAD), GLAAD issued its statement on Robertson’s comments. A&E initially released a statement from Robertson in which he said he would “never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me.” But the network declined
Friday night, a young New York-based communications director had her life destroyed on social media while she was out of touch with the world and could not defend herself. Justine Sacco was on a flight to Africa and had no Internet access when BuzzFeed´s Andrew Kaczynski apparently got the ball rolling by tweeting out to his 100k-plus followers that Sacco was responsible for what "may be the worst tweet of all time." By the time she stepped off her flight, Sacco found herself a national pariah and fired from her job. Here´s the tweet that caused it all:
On Hugh Hewitt’s Thursday radio show, conservative commentator Mark Steyn spoke out against the groups he said were behind the hostile reactions to the remarks made by “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson made to GQ magazine about homosexuality and sin. “I think in a strange way, this is the biggest story of the day, the week, the month,” Steyn told fill-in host Rep. John Campbell (R-CA). “I’m actually quite worried that we’re moving into an age of extremely heavy-handed ideological compliance. There was nothing this guy said in GQ that I think that should have rendered him banished from the airwaves.
What would A&E do if one of its stars told a national magazine that they supported same-sex marriage? Ken Klukowski, director of the Center for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council, said they probably wouldn’t have faced the same fate as "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson, who was “suspended indefinitely” from the cable channel’s hit show after he said in an interview with GQ magazine that he believes homosexuality is a sin. “It violates the whole principles underlying the First Amendment to say that a person, who just in their own plain spoken manner, that they quote the Bible
Look, I tried, remember? But while the good news is that KISS finally got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the bad news is that Cat Stevens (a.k.a. Yusuf Islam) will also be a member of the “class of 2014.” KISS led the popular vote, while Stevens brought up the rear. However, the Hall has a sort of “electoral college” that gets to override the people’s choices. This leads to a frankly bizarre situation, in which bands like Yes (10.88% of the popular vote) and Deep Purple (11.93%) beat out Stevens (5.37%) but don’t get inducted. Look,
Judge Robert J. Shelby, whom President Barack Obama appointed to the U.S. District Court in Utah last year, issued an opinion on Friday declaring that a right to same-sex marriage is “deeply rooted in this nation’s history and tradition.” Shelby was confirmed to the federal bench by a voice vote of the Senate on Sept. 21, 2012. There was no debate over his nomination, and no senator objected to his confirmation. He has now issued an opinion that could fundamentally alter American law and culture. “The State’s second argument is that the Plaintiffs are really seeking a new right, not access to an
For a few hours, it looked like Americans would quietly accept the suspension of popular “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for his unfiltered opinions about sin, sex, gays and blacks in a magazine interview. But then, as if on cue, hundreds of thousands of fans of the openly Christian, duck-hunting businessman took to social networks and started their backlash. As of Thursday night, more than 1.1 million people “liked” the “Stand With Phil Robertson” Facebook page, while about the same number had clicked their support for another Facebook page called “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was hospitalized early Friday morning as a “precaution” after feeling ill, a spokesman said, adding that doctors concluded "everything is normal" after testing. “Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital. Tests have been conducted and everything is normal. He is alert, resting and feeling better,” spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement. "Doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today." The Senate is set to finish its business for the year on Friday.
The suspension of Phil Robertson from A&E’s Duck Dynasty is outrageous in a nation that values freedom, according to social critic and openly gay, dissident feminist Camille Paglia. “I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday. “In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have
Phil Robertson disrespected gay employees at A&E ... and THAT´S why he was sacked from "Duck Dynasty" ... sources connected with the network tell TMZ. We´re told A&E CEO Nancy Dubuc felt she could not in good conscience ask gay employees to kill themselves for a show when he disrespected them by calling them sinners. Our sources say ... gay employees involved in the production -- and there are a number of them -- were outraged by Phil´s comments to GQ and wanted Dubuc to give him the ax. We´re told Dubuc felt this way ... If Phil had made
The Obama administration Thursday night significantly relaxed the rules of the health-care law for millions of consumers whose individual insurance policies have been canceled, saying they could buy bare-bones health plans or entirely avoid the requirement that most Americans have health insurance. The surprise announcement, four days before the Dec. 23 deadline for people to choose coverage that begins on Jan. 1, triggered an immediate backlash from the health insurance industry and raised new fairness questions about a law intended to promote affordable and comprehensive coverage. “This type of last-minute change will cause tremendous instability in the marketplace and lead
Over the last several weeks the Obama White House has been executing a media blitz meant to sell Obamacare to the nation—again. As the final maneuver in that plan, the President is releasing several reports on how Obamacare will affect the states. His message: repealing Obamacare will just be too expensive. "These state reports mark the culmination of a multi-week effort by the White House and supporters of reform to bring a renewed refocus on each of these benefits and what the cost of repealing them would mean," a White House official told reporters at The Hill. Obamacare supporters crafted these reports to
The wrecking ball swung again toward the crumbling Obamacare edifice yesterday. Ironically, it continues to be the Obama administration that is operating the heavy machinery. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced, in the form of a letter to Democratic senators, that Obamacare’s individual mandate tax will be waived in 2014 for persons who had their policies canceled in 2013 due to Obamacare. At this point, after months of on-the-fly pronouncements, delays, and exemptions (often announced, not coincidentally, in the days just before a major national holiday), perhaps nothing should surprise us anymore about Obamacare’s disastrous rollout. But yesterday’s announcement
