Court Jester Joe Biden approached his Lord O'Everything Great Big O and asked, "what are you offering the peasants in your election speech today, muh Lord "? King of Everything Barack Hussein Obama said "Nothing they can afford to refuse." And with that He stepped out on the balcony where He could look Down on the peasants, as it should be, and said "Elect me and i promise you FREE HEALTHCARE !! " and the peasants merrily danced and sang. "FREE HOUSING, FREE CLOTHING,FOOD STAMPS" Proclaimed the Smartest Toughest Most Handsome-est King - and the peasants danced, sang, and kneeled, shedding tears of joy at the altar of the Smartest, Most Wonderful - est King they'd ever had. 

"Any Questions my Subjects" He asked in that voice that sent shivers down the leg of many a MSM town crier especially the crier known as Chris "shiver me leg" Matthews . "Yes, O Bestest King Ever" said one peasant nervously as he approached the

"Yes, Your Most of Most Bestest Kings Ever" said one peasant nervously as he approached the Messiah, ashamed at his unworthiness to be so close to perfection . "Why in the WORLD would we want JOBS????"

I feel I must agree with leftie-lucy....the only true measure of congress's accomplishment is the NUMBER of bills passed. The more that are passed, the more we know they are "doing the work of the people".

A prime example of the coal industry flaunting the laws for 30 years is the Corette coal generating plant in Billings, Mt. They ignored the original 20 year memorandum to improve their plant. Then they wanted another 20 year exemption so they could pollute some more. It was not given and they are closing. thus, it was Obama's fault???? Ya, right. The coal plants of ND have kept up with the regs and will not have much problem with anything coming up. But, the Corette plant is indicative of most of the East coast plants. They have ignored the law for twenty plus years and it is time to step up. Oh, and the parent company of Corette is PPL and made 1.5 Billion in profits but could not afford the 38 million it would take to comply.. So, who is fooling whom??

Now, as to the Keystone fallacy. The oil will go to China through the ports of Texas. We will get shafted. The oil will not get to china to the Pacific. It won't happen. A. Canada needs to refine their OWN oil and stop importing Bakken because it is better to refine. B. Canada needs to see what damage they are doing to their own country by tearing up and polluting the land at the mines. C. Even Brittish Columbia has stated they don't want a dirty oil pipeline coming their way. Their view is that "trust Us" from the pipeline company does not hold water. That tells you a lot.

Does the opinion piece writer, whether in Wheeling or Minot, not understand that international agreements are the purview of the State Department?

Let the Canadians ship that sludge to the west coast and then China. Note, "ship" 'cause the Canadian Govt. won't let TransCanada build a pipeline...too hazardous.

Since Obama is whining about climate change, he could of helped by cancelling his plans of flying the jets to Africa. Everyone is suppose to help with this Climate change except Obama and Gore and family and friends. They are just getting fatter and richer. Oh well, he'll be out of the office in 3 years.

Why get involved in an inane conversation with hypocrite dusty anyway. All we need is for President in mind only McCain to push for more involvement. Your blogs become more and more irrelevant as time goes along. The Republicons will find a war somewhere. They have to serve the military corporations or they won't get their political contributions. You sure make a lot of money in June, even with taking time off. Dummkopf.

Lets just review the cover story you are so proud of. Everyone should research the author... a right wing idiot... His pitch----the arguments of the piece?

Basically that Obama has failed on the economy and failed on the deficit, and that the vision of Romney and Ryan is the only thing that can save us now.

That says it all. Two of the biggest economic losers in history and he backs them... Tee Hee for this idiot.

"The Republicons will find a war somewhere. They have to serve the military corporations or they won't get their political contributions."

We have a sitting Democrat president who is commander in chief at this very moment. He is the one who will decide if or when the troops/equipment/support/money goes to Syria.

Long story short: President Obama will own this if we go into Syria. Unless, of course, the administration apologists can have their way and somehow contrive the decision to be the fault of Republicans and/or former President Bush. Newsflash: he's been gone for 5 years now.

Only an idiot would refer to Obama's presidency as 'imperial'.

Oh, and Obama is an idiot too.

Obviously, you wingers totally forget that the "do-nothing" congress has done nothing. Now, we certainly cannot blame Boehnor or the right wingers in the House. After all, they have voted 37 times on one bill that goes no where. And, we certainly cannot blame the Senate Republicans as they have only used the filibuster a Record 400 times...Yep, it is all Obama. And certainly when we look at the most influential people as listed, the right wing talkers are right up there expecially with the income. Thus, Hate sells and the right wing is buying. Let me see-- an example- where is the farm bill, where is the jobs bill, and where are the bills to end sequester? Sitting in the soon to be ex Speakers desk,, Yes, you certainly have a lot to hide.

Fixated on Bush/Cheney, five years after both of them have been gone.

Why live in the past? There is a current administration. Sing its praises.

Old hypocrite dusty can rant all he wants but the REpublican party is a bunch of losers. They have failed this country by not doing what is right for the US. But, now, by doing nothing about the sequester, they have doubled the rates of college students who needed help to go to college. Of course it does not affect the rich because they have the money to pay for college. Another ,,, I don't care about the country as long as the rich are not affected. And, losers like hypocrite follow the line.

Would any of you non intellectual wingers care to tell us what type of interest rates the big banks get from the government? Did those double? Well, if you can borrow from the government at almost zero percent, why cannot the students? Don't you think the students deserve the same rate the banks get? Well, in the REpublican world, students don't have the money to give political contributions.

Oh, who did take over the loans? Why did they do that? Do you really, and I mean really know what the banks were doing with the loans? Nope, as usual hypocrite, you know very little except for what Fox news tells you.

"I don't really have a problem with the Obama presidency as much as I had a problem with the Cheney/Bush presidency." says Rugby. And I feel I have to agree with Rugby. The military IS a "jobs" program....nothing more. All that joined, including Rugby, should be able to make a career in the military, and it is terrible for Booosh and company to expect ANYTHING else out of those joining the military. Rugby should have been able to enjoy a "peaceful" career on U.S. soil, and we all could have thanked him for that peaceful service. We need more like Rugby, to help keep our unemployment rates down....
