PJinfinity will never cease to bully those with whom he disagrees.

Predictable.

And I waited until this a.m. to say it too.

I wonder if this will get everyone all riled up...

Democrats and Republicans have jobs and take responsibility. Many of them have insurance. Some do not.

WOW!!!!

Jason Easley, politicususa founder 4-1-14

"Obama Rips Republicans, ‘There are still no death panels. Armageddon has not arrived.’"

"Instead of running on the weak and whiny position of “fixing Obamacare,” Democrats should follow the president’s lead and explain to voters what repealing the law would mean. Repealing the law means that tens of millions of people would lose their health insurance. The ACA is working. It is helping people. The demand for Obamacare has now been proven...

"Republicans have never been able to answer the question that the president asked, “Why are they so mad about the idea of folks having health insurance?” The president is holding Republican feet to the fire, and his not going to stop pressing until the ACA haters have been thoroughly defeated."

CNN 4-1-14

"Democrats on the stump, especially those who voted for it and now find themselves in tight races, have recalibrated their position with Obama's presidency not much help to them with voters overall in their states.

"But Obama said at the White House that the law is good for the country, regardless of politics, and that the numbers show Americans want it and that it's "here to stay."

"'I don't get it. Why are folks working so hard for people not to have health insurance? Why are they so mad about the idea of people having health insurance?' he asked."

Is it possible that the president is not getting it about something else?

There are other news sources than ultra-blue ones. Perhaps a few of the others will help to make things fair and balanced.

Many, many fellow citizens really don't like Obamacare. Why is that so hard for the president's supporters to believe?

Pres. Obama said yesterday that ACA doesn't need to be fixed, like some Democrats running for election are saying.

Stay in the bubble. It's nicer in there, isn't it?

"...use it as some sorted example..."

Perhaps Justaman meant "sordid example?" Or it could be he did mean what he said, an example of sorts.

If it should be clarified, he'll do it for us.

Despite their constant carping, the Minot Daily News itself is the beneficiary of tax payer dollars.

This is the Tea Party principle ethic -- commonly known as, NIMBY.

Like I said locomotive, You're really caught up in it.....Aren't you?

You couldn't have made my point any better than to quote the Daily Kos from 2009 and use it as some sorted example.....Strange when someone's opinion on political ideology has the same seriousness attached to someone directly providing Mexican Cartels with automatic weaponry! Is that what Darrell Issa is so upset about?

"So the only "legitimate" accusation is one that has been tried and convicted in court?"

What I said was there are alot of illegitimate accusations.....Just read landslide2014 posts.(instead of just writing them)

Forever faithful Democrat, thy name is billgrr.

dailykos 1-22-09 "Why They FEAR Eric Holder and President Obama"

"The time to fight is now. We can not let them extract a commitment to give the crimes of the Bush years a free pass as a devil’s bargain to get Eric Holder confirmed as Attorney General. He needs to be the People’s Lawyer. He needs to always feel that is his duty to expose corruption and root it out regardless of where it goes and regardless of Party. This is an obligation that Cornyn, Specter and the Republican Party seek to destroy. It is what they fear.

"The Right-wing nut jobs are testing us with the Holder Nomination. It is time to smack them and knock them back. It is time to smack them hard. It is time to send them slinking back to their caves. It is time to finally return the rule of law to the Department of Justice.

"It is way past time to confirm Eric Holder.

"We need him on the job."

I'm really dismayed that I can no longer read the Minot Daily News' articles.

Oh well . . . I guess I'll just have to link to one of the dozens of other newspapers the MDN's right-wing news consortium controls.

So the only "legitimate" accusation is one that has been tried and convicted in court?

Then why do liberals continue to accuse Bush/Cheney of things that haven't been tried and convicted in court?

Are they propagandizing? *gasp*

"Of course, this does apply to lefty propagandists, right?"

You really are caught up in it locomotive!

Holder guilty.....Throw him in jail! Same for Reid!!!

The problem seems to be the Right only has enough evidential hearsay to fill slots on radio,tv & newspapers and can't seem to get their case on a docket.....Why is that?

Are all judges liberal including majority of bench at SCOTUS?

Whenever people use good judgement, like saying enough already and to go get your FACTS before you speak it's propaganda? Not the way I see it!

Faux sympathy, Justaman. What was my first clue? That really, really clever "flat earth society" remark.

Oh, well. Target-rich environment for libs. Aren't they happy yet?

Would they only be happy if opposition was eliminated?

Reminds me of a little ditty associated with Sen. Harry Reid...

good for me, but not for thee
