  • Yeah…Call it Obama’s Possible Second Term!! And with the same results…scorched earth and death to the America we love!! Great symbol! F5 and above on the Tornado Scale!

    • Whether Obama and Romney is elected, we will receive the equivalent of Obama’s 2nd term because there is not a lick of difference between them (even George Soros recognizes that – which is why he says he doesn’t care who wins). However, if Romney is elected, an Obama-like 3rd term is also possible. Unless so-called conservates rally behind a REAL conservative (the Constitution Party or Libertarian Party candidates), we’re screwed.

      • PFFV

        There is a huge difference between Mitt and Barry! Mitt loves this country and Barry doesn’t!

        Mitt has worked in the private sector and has saved many American Companies and even more American Jobs. Barry has shuttered thousands of businesses and put a record number of Americans out of work and on welfare and oh yes he never had a real job. Obama is the first affirmative action President and a radical socialist, everything our founding fathers were against!

        Romney is the opposite of Obama in almost every aspect.

        You clowns that sit by and badmouth a man trying to save our country from Tyranny are part of the problem NOT part of the solution! Now go back into your Mom’s basement and finish that bag of cheetos!

        • Because Obamacare was molded from Romneycare AND the fact that Romney is now backtracking on getting rid of Obamacare (“I’d like to keep aspects of it”)… combined with Romney being a full supporter of TARP and the bailouts (distribution of wealth from future tax payers to current corporations)… all goes to show that Romney is also a Socialist. The only difference is that Romney is of the crony-capitalist variety and Obama is of the Marxist variety – but both are Socialists.

          BTW, I’m a hard-working/fully-employed married American in favor of REAL small government… but nice try with the demeaning profiling.

          • PFFV

            They are NOT the same PERIOD! I gave you several examples of how they are different. To save this nation we MUST defeat Obama first and foremost! We will hold Romney’s feet to the fire on his actions when the time comes.

            I apologize if I misunderstood your first comment but it sounded a lot like the leftists I beat down daily. If you aren’t going to vote against Obama (i.e. for Romney) you are part of the problem.

            “Stop the Spending Stupid” must be our objective or our nation is toast. Heck it may already be too late.

            Romney was my last choice like many others feel too I am aware. Get on board and help us get rid of this Marxist P.O.S. in the White House!

            • Well, you mentioned that Mitt has private sector experience and saved jobs… what you didn’t say is that he had to use a federal bailout to do so! And I’m sure your right that Mitt loves this country, but he sure doesn’t love small government. His record has him vastly growing state government in Massachusetts. He’s a crony capitalist at his core… he’s just going to be another president of backroom deals with lobbyists.

              And how would Republicans hold Mitt’s feet to the fire? They sure didn’t do that with Bush, how will it be different now? You need a leader going in with small government ideas. That’s not Mitt. At least with Obama (and I’m not supporting him by any means) Republicans will rally against his expansion of government.

              There are two other candidates that are actually small-government… the Libertarian and Constitutional Party candidates. And the Libertarians are already on the ballot in all 50 states. Without support of real small-government conservatives, Romney has no chance anyway… so why not send a message to GOP elites and split the vote – it will tell them that we’re not sheep and to stop spending millions to nominate RINOs like Romney and McCain.

  • Arrrggghhh

    That’s almost as scary as the possibility of an Obama win coming at us in November.

    In case anyone is wondering why all the failures of Obama’s administration aren’t affecting his popularity, listen to this:

    • Yeah the MSM protects him at will…subsitute George Bush…his approval would be 25 percent….

      • PhillyCon

        Well said. Plus, the “war movement” would still be protesting.

    • p m

      Arrrggghhh – you have the perfect poster name for this clip. And this administration.

    • Nukeman60

      That is a classic video. I don’t usually listen to Stern, but you gotta love the responses. You just can’t fix stupid!

      • sDee

        but you can buy its vote.

    • PhillyCon

      Yes, Palin is running and Ryan is Obama’s VP. Unreal.

    • PicklePlants

      The brain dead dolts that don’t even listen or read any news, like the ones on this Stern clip get to vote!

      That audio is exactly what ticks me off about this upcoming election. Obama knows that all he needs to do is say “good” things so the sound bites are propagated by the MSM and most voters will base their decision on that alone. Voters that spend time to study and understand the issues tend to convert to the conservative side, but Democrats simply appeal to the lowest denominator.

      Arrrggghhh! The motivation factor is the key to a Romney landslide. Make sure you and all of your like-minded friends vote.

      • Arrrggghhh

        It is absolutely maddening.

        You are exactly spot on. Although the “citizen’s movement” is in the minority, virtually all of us will vote and virtually all of us will vote for Romney. That’s what drove the 2010 landslide. The only difference in 2012 is that Obama will be on the ballot. I just don’t feel the enthusiasm that Obama had in 2008; hopefully the dolt turnout will be much lower.

        Not only am I bugging like-minded friends and family, I’m even talking to strangers. Last week, I got the Sam’s Club checkout woman going by telling her that I was stocking up on food just in case Obama wins. Unfortunately, I wasn’t lying.

  • Joe


    Will it make to DC in time?

    I hope so!

  • Nukeman60

    Viewer: “What the heck was that?”

    Second viewer: “Oh, nothing. Just God responding to what Obama had to say today.”

    • T4Ut

      “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night”
      – Exodus 13:21

  • Is that line of fire headed towards the White House? God works in mysterious ways.

    • sDee

      It is. It is We the People. The politicians did not hear us in 2010 it seems. Maybe they will hear us in 2012? If this is not enough get their attention we will spend two more years fueling up.

      • Nukeman60

        If they don’t hear us this time, November 7th will be a “Declaration of Independence” day, and then they will start to hear us loud and clear. Romney or Obama, either way.

        • sDee

          After November 2012, ABO is no more. November 2014 will be Romney’s Report Card.

          • Nukeman60

            We want to be ready for Nov, 2014. No more waiting to see what the RINOs do. I don’t trust them anymore than I trust the libs. The fight is on even after Romney wins. I agree we should see what he accomplishes, but he has to see our strength, as well.

        • PFFV

          Indeed, if Obama wins there will be a revolution like nothing we have ever seen in our lifetimes! I will be first in line to fight (to the death if need be) for my childrens and nations freedom how about you?

    Great column by Malkin today:

    Eddie Haskell Brooks

    She recounts Brook’s bizarre fixation on Obama’s pants crease. She also talks about all the fawning he did over all the Ivy Leaguers in the transition. It was kind of gross to read the slobbering again.

  • Sandra123456

    Faux Indian squaw Elizabeth Warren running for Senator from Massachusetts has a legal problem, she is a faux lawyer as well.

    “Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem”

    “…Warren represented not just Travelers, but numerous other companies starting in the late 1990s working out of and using her Harvard Law School office in Cambridge, which she listed as her office of record on briefs filed with various courts. Warren, however, never has been licensed to practice law in Massachusetts…”

    • sDee

      Watching that video is more like a watching Democratic primary debate – trying to “out liberal” each other. 🙂

      Let’s hope she gets what is long overdue her.

    • NYGino

      So, she doesn’t have a valid law license. Just another ‘bump in the road’ to be ignored by just another Democrat. In their minds, no big deal.

    • Landscaper

      “Houston, we have a problem.” This Space Cadet is unable to tell the truth or play by the rules of the law with pesky little details like having a law license IN Massachusetts! She will make the perfect politician.

  • jdbaird

    I got to see Mark Levin speak at the Big Orange Book Festival on Friday, what a delight. Best line: “If anybody’s planning on heckling do it now so we can taze your ass and drag you outta here!” He seemed to be having to censor himself somewhat though, I don’t know whether they asked him to not say anything too contoversial so as not to draw any negative press to the school or what but that’s the way it seemed. Nonetheless it was the highlight of my year getting to see him in person, unfortunately the line for book signing was huge so I guess I’ll have to save that for another day.

    • poljunkie

      Wow that would have been great.

    Rush talking about the polls now. There’s a site that corrects all the skewing so we can get more accurate results. That’s if you believe polls in the first place after Reagan/Carter!

    • joyfulgiver

      AMAZING! It gives me hope to see these results.

    • kong1967

      ..or after Walker who was supposed to lose. He kicked butt.

      Thanks for the link. I bookmarked it and it’s refreshing to see Romney leading with a good margin on unskewed polls.

        Hehe – that’s one reason I predict 15+ for R&R…

  • Scary.

    The power of mother nature is awe inspiring. When we have tornadoes in the area…in Kansas…I am outside marveling at the power of the storms and looking for the tornadoes. Not the smartest thing to do, but….

      I have developed a new respect for Howard Stern. That was even better than the other vid I saw of libs being interviewed.

      I find it mind boggling how people have made up their minds that Obama is G-d and they don’t know a damn thing about him…or anything else as far as that goes. My daughter is 21 and she has no interest in politics. If they were to ask her she wouldn’t lie. She would say she doesn’t care, and…as she told me….she’s not voting because she doesn’t know anything about either one of them and it would be an ignorant vote. Yet, these people defend statements that are so obviously false just to justify their love for Obama. Couldn’t they just say “I don’t know”? Unbelievable.

  • T4Ut

    Found this and had to share. “You didn’t build that!”

    • p m

      Perfect, love it, thanks for the link. Those ears…

    • kong1967

      That was funny. I bookmarked the site.


    The finger of GOD pointing towards the election of “THE ONE”.

    M-I-T-T R-O-M-N-E-Y that would be, who by his own hands nurses his felllow man back to health.

    They should use this video in the remake of the 10 Commandments?
    I don’t think I have ever seen one so big.

    BUT, Cecil B. Demille did a preetty good job with out computer graphics for his time.

    I love that movie, but I bet there is a lot of young Amercians have never seen it to be
    affected or influenced by the meanings in the movie.

    America is the contiuation of THAT story, some believe and why we are blessed, try telling lib-turds on MSLSD that.

    BLESSINGS slipping from our grasp, as we speak folks, and now we see BIG fire twisters.

    I wonder if Oh-uh-oh in his arrogance is having a tussle with THE Almighty.

    Boy, I expect to see a mighty fall take place NOV 6, but the “nice” man never runs out of “tricks”.

    “We got to let them go” “C.E.”

  • iaintlyin

    So, here we have an administration that purposely lied about the events leading up to the embassy attack, the attack itself and the ultimate reasons for the attack. Muslim hatred for anything civilized (we being the epitome of that) being the main reason for the attack is casting a fog over the real immediate reason, 0’s campaign bragging on about the killing of bin Laden as its main foreign policy achievement. After depriving those of us that would not have minded seeing picture proof positive of the murder under the guise of not wanting to stir up muslim violence, he does not mind stirring them up for political gain. In showing the weakness of kowtowing to their possible rage about killing bin Laden, the muslims took us for what we appeared to be, weak. Hence, this Embassy attack. And again, this pos wanted to blame a video, again refusing to tell the truth. Now imagine, if this moron wins in Nov., what news/info will we get about any attacks in the future. This incompetent regime will tell us nothing, and they won’t be asked anything if the press continues their out of control leftward spiral. yikes .

  • poljunkie

    For those of you who hadn’t heard The Virgina Gentleman is coming home today. He had successful heart surgery. His wife wrote “My Atlas is coming home!”
    I asked him that once he was settled in, tucked up in bed, he take a moment to stop in, during the next couple of days so we can all wish him well ourselves.

    In my humble opinion, there are actually four elements, or groups of people, who would like to have control of this country and its government. I changed the word, “Americans, to people,” because I believe there are plenty of, “people,” who now live within our shores, who are not really Americans. If they are, they certainly don’t seem to act like it.

    I’m angry. Don’t let my words confuse you. I promise I will get to the point of all this, sooner or later.

    All those people on the Left. What do you want to call them? Liberals, Progressives, Democrats, Communists? They change their name, every time people find out about them. They thought, “Progressives,” was good. “People progressing, to a better life for all Americans,” had a nice ring to it.

    Didn’t work. You can dress up a pig and even put on lipstick. I’m sorry, that’s a pig you got there. Throughout History, Communism has tried to hide behind every bush the Liberal mentality could think of. They have just about run out of bushes to hide behind.

    So, they have taken a new tack. They have presented to all of our young people, in Colleges and Universities across America, that the world we are living in, is destined for failure. Not only a failure for those living in the Promised Land, America, but a failure for the World.

    If the world is to survive, we need to act in harmony with other nations, to preserve the dignity of human life on this planet. The Constitution of The United States of America cannot do that. It is a flawed document, valuable only to the men who wrote it and benefited by it. It has no significance in this current generation of Americans, nor in the greater sense, to the people who inhabit the planet. That’s one. That’s what your President believes.


    RINOS. People who run our party. Don’t we love’em. The people who are supposed to represent us, and yet don’t represent us at all. The much esteemed Republican Establishment. The Old Guard. The Good Ole’ Boys.

    They may dress better, and play more golf, but in the end, there is little difference, really. They have no intention of changing the sweet deal they set up, long ago. They don’t have contempt for Freedom, the way the first group does. They just don’t see any reason for changing the way things are. They’re doing just fine. Did I forget to mention, they’re all Millionaires?


    The Tea Party. Good people. Good honest Americans. They still believe in the American Dream and God and all that. Still believe in The Constitution, as if that’s worth anything in this current environment.

    First two groups make fun of them. In the race for control of our country, they are probably in third position. Don’t have much money. Only thing in their favor, is that most of America believes just like they do. In the end, I have no idea, what that’s worth. We’ll have to wait and see.


    Muslims. My favorite subject. They have nothing but contempt for the first three categories I have presented here. Because they worship a false Prophet, who guarantees we will all be dead in a few more years.

    Place your bets, ladies and gentlemen. Who do you think will win this war?
