    nope, my statement is in regards to the people who wanted to blame Marily Manson after Columbine when he had nothing to do with it. now people are trying to take down the Tea Party for something they had nothing to do with. It's all a blame game and the media has ignited the flame. Everybody is always trying to point the finger at someone else these days and not take personal acceptance. It's always someone else's fault or someone else did something for you. Also see Oblahblah's statement on who built their own business.

    The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but the citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency.
    It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency, than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
    The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us.
    Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
    The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those that made him their President.

    So what do we do with the idiots that elected Bush twice. It was ok that he is dumber than a post and in bed with the Saudis. Yes it was Saudis that hit the WTC, not Saddam Hussein. but he didn't go after the Saudis, he went after Hussein, and lost focus on Bin Laden. Got us into 2 wars, oil prices went through the roof. The housing market collapsed, went into a major recession that Obama inherited and the GOP has blocked everything that he has tried to do. BTW, what about the idiots that elected old man Bush? The GOP and the media was in an uproar because Clinton got a hummer. Petty jealousy I say. If Monica Lewinsky had been giving hummers to everybody, you never would've heard about it. But since she was only shining Bill, the old timers got pzzd. I think Clinton had a balanced budget when he left office and 'Ol W pzzed that away. Just sayin.

    I am still shaking my head over a reporter jumping so quickly to identify the shooter based upon only his name which happens to be the name of a person who belongs to the Tea Party.

    Bias, plain and simple.

    I'm really tired of hearing folks whose educational background we know nothing about accuse bush of being "dumb as a post". He is a Yale grad and has a Harvard MBA along with being a jet pilot. Perhaps you don't have to be a mensa candidate (rank above the 98 percentile) to have achieved those accomplishments, but I feel certain that one would need to be fairly well on the right side of the bell curve.

    been called a few things in my day but never an idiot twice in one post....I could care less what he did with Monica, his taste in women spoke volumes,starting with Hillary.....


    Given the choice between Bush and the current resident of the WH, I would gladly vote for Bush again..at least I can admit who I cast my vote for, still trying to find people to admit they voted for BHO...

    A reporter on Good Morning America added to the story that "in Colorado, it is legal to carry a gun in your car". While true, the implication is that it the law allowed this to happen. I am sure he would have obeyed the law if it were illegal to carry a gun in your car.

    Raymond, I am a "public employee" and a solid conservative, and I resent the hell out of your statement.

    Guessing that being first to report the story and to pin it on a conservative political group was more important then getting it right...

    I hope this guy sues the butt off of ABC!!!!!
