    Talk about reaching. Even Obama said he didn't deserve that prize.

    Immaterial. The fact that he got it still got the conservative machine rolling.

    That is a rather selective (and imaginative) memory you have.

    The rhetoric came from both sides, and both sides were worse than they are now.

    So then conservatives are the cause of the division. Because Obama had no control over whether or not he got the Nobel Prize. So we can confirm that conservatives are willing to divide the nation regardless of anything Obama does or doesn't do, their aim is division.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.

    Nice try. It's all rabid fringers. For Bush, it was the "Bush lied, kids died!" liberal loons that caused the polarization, not to mention the dumbest idiots of America laying blame at Bush's doorstep for everything from the subprime crash to "too big to fail" and everything in-between.

    If you're going to castigate one side of the aisle, make sure you give equal time to the other.

    I think in today's politics, people have to hate an opponent to get excited about their own parties candidate. They're just not a lot of good picks running.

    My main man B-Gold said those words. He was right.
