Zero Dark Thirty would've won some major swag if it didn't try to imply that torture brought us to OBL.

Newsflash!  Ann Coulter is a dude in drag.  If that pastor can call Pres Obama gay then I can say she's a dude.

Was it legal?  Yes?  Who cares?

You Republicans are all ridiculously crazy - so concerned about sex and not concerned about money.  The guy is going through a boatload of actual scandals about his finances, but all you care about is whether he was doing something that was legal.

@paulejb Good to know you are so obsessed with what Mendez does and doesn't do. Did you share the same obsession with David Diapers Vitter?

@roknsteve Please don't insult 'dudes in drag' by comparing them to Ann Coulter. 'Dudes in drag' deserve better than that.

@roknsteve Don't know about a dude, but she is certainly a good reason to turn gay if she was the alternative.

I'm waiting for Murrow to slap him down

Maybe he was too busy kicking Republican tail in two elections.

"There are always going to be some areas where we have genuine disagreement ... but there are more areas where we can do a lot more cooperating than we have seen in the past couple years," Obama told a meeting of the National Governors Association at the White House.

"At some point, we've got to do some governing. And, certainly, we can't keep careening from manufactured crisis to manufactured crisis."

I wonder if Paule appreciates the irony of his bolded nonsense.  Probably not.

For someone who did no governing, he got a lot of his platform enacted without Congress's help

@paulejb For someone who did no governing he managed to get a lot of things passed that have you baggers all in a tizzy.

@paulejb At least he just confused two countries with relative proximity and both former Soviet Satelites.  He'll probably have to apologize to them for that mix up but....not the worst crime in the world.  Most people can understand running into mix ups like that.

Who knew that John Kerry would have us longing for Susan Rice.

This is a Freudian slip from Paule admitting that he didn't actually care about Susan Rice's roll in Benghazi.

If not gay, at least self service.

@DonQuixotic @paulejb ,

Barack Hussein Obama always manages to go missing as soon as the excrement begins to hit the rotary device.

@DonQuixotic @paulejb ,

Susan Rice had no role in Benghazi. She was merely the sacrificial goat thrown to the media to cloud the issue until Obama got past the election.

The stimulus didn't work?  Half of the stimulus was a tax cut and I don't remember a great clamor of people returning the money so half must have worked.  And OMB says it all worked.  Gee, wrong twice paulie in one sentence.

Lips moving, hips shaking, jaws dropping...it's all the same to you.  You just think we inherently lie.

So if I from time to time call you a manipulative, partisan,  two-bit, race-baiting, bald-faced, welfare-mooching SOB don't take it personally.

@paulejb @mantisdragon91 So the sky isn't blue in your world? You being a part of an alternate reality can explain so much about the idiocies you spout on this forum.

You clearly did not understand my statement.

It is clearly a confusion between the real existing countries of Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan   Both countries are former Soviet States and even share a border.  It is forgivable that he got them confused.

I'll answer that for you: No, he didn't.

@paulejb @mantisdragon91 @DonQuixotic Or she is using the talking points provided to her by the intelligence community. Out of curiosity did you have the same disdain for Condi Rice who happened to be both a liar and a dupe?

One of these politicians was elected President TWICE after his silly mis-statment. The other couldn't beat Mitt Romney.

@paulejb @MementoMori Excellent! You've proven my point about how petty you are.

Well done.

Don't worry paulie, I'm through with you today. Please continue with your two minute hate, though. You seem to need it.
