We provide the financing for low income housing, healthcare, school lunches. We have not been perfect but I put our record up against any other major political party in the Western world.
    Ya'll don't do that to help blacks. Ya'll do that to buy their votes. You have them convinced that they can't make it without the help of the Liberal do-gooders. 40 years and $11 trillion later, what have you accomplished? Nothing. One day, the black community is going to pull itself up by it's boot straps and when that day comes, the Democrats are going to lose millions of votes. Without the dependency of the black community on the etitlements you just lsited, the Liberals would be ****ed, politically.

    Re: White House attacks worry moderate Democrats

    2008 was the bluest year of my incredibly long lifetime

    but that's looking backwards

    2009 and ought-10 look to be BLOOD RED

    starting in VA

    even dark blue NJ, if it weren't for dagget, we're a shoe in

    as it is, it's TIED

    and in NY23, the combined GOP'ers lead by 18

    republicans will probably lose NY but that's small picture and is due to our divide

    obviously

    big observation sees---obama beware

    And busts their gut laughing at him.

    Msnbc and it's hiring of liberal commentators was not for "objectivity" but to create a "leftist" version of fox news. That's right, they were trying to mimic fox news....all for money. Apparently they aren't "objective" at all, just a leftist version of fox. The really bad part of all of this is, they are failing.


    Just like liberal talk radio always fails..... nobody wants to listen to them.

    Liberals were on the radio? We should impliment the fairness doctrine to get rid of them.

    Sucks when people use a broad brush, huh?

    If you agree to rethink your "conservatives are all uneducated retards and only liberals see the light cuz they have college degrees and stuff" theory, I'll stop calling you a right-winger.
    I never said uneducated conservatives were "retards" or that educated liberals "see the light". My only point is that people with post-graduate degrees tend to be liberal; and if MSNBC was looking to hire "smart" reporters as Griffen alleges in his interview; then he would probably see more impressive resumes from liberals than conservatives. For instance, if Griffen saw Hannity's resume (a college dropout) and Maddow's resume (Phd from Oxford); Maddow would probably get the job. If Olberman (Ivy League graduate) and Palin (difficulty graduating from small school); Olberman would get the job. Hannity and Palin are not "retards" but they would not be competitive in jobs that place high value in educational backgrounds. That is how MSNBC ended up with so many liberal anchors.

    You probably don't know this but in America the term "right-winger" is not distasteful because of their educational achievements; but this movement has been associated with racial bigotry by prominent leaders such as Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton. At their March on Washington, tea-baggers held signs that said: "the zoo has an African Lion; and the Whitehouse has a Lying African". They have historically nominated openly racist candidates for high office: Nixon, Reagan, Jessie Helms, Storm Thurmond. Not every conservative is racist but some of the public faces of the American "right-wing" bear the ugly scars of racism. So the term "right-wing" has some unique American connotations that has made the term derogatory.

    Europe enjoys leftist administrations and broad social safety nets but I wonder how much of your good life was paid for by American taxpayers. Over the last half century much of our bloated defense budget was spent protecting Europe. This freed European countries from an enormous burden and they were able to use their treasury to improve the lives of their citizens. Europe stroked the ego of American conservatives. Guys like Reagan would then spend all of our money to over-militarize. But when those conservatives got drunk with power and began to unilaterally invade other countries on a "pre-emptive" basis; Europe became angry at America. But I hope that you guys at least admit some responsibility for creating this monster.

    Mostly old folks get their news from the radio because they were born in an era when television was not prevalent and radio was king. These senior citizens tend to be more conservative in their political philosophy. Liberals have far more diverse selection of news providers NY Times, Wash. Post, LA Times, online content, broadcast news, MSNBC, CNN). Conservatives only have Fox News and talk radio; that's why the ratings of these shows tend to be so high.

    plato in his cave looks at shadows on his wall and ruminates, his thoughts make so much sense, the abstractions so perfectly lined up, logical, even lovely, pure rationality, why should anyone so brilliant bother to observe things outside?
