Thanks for Limbaugh

Thank the Lord for Limbaugh. The Democrats can't stand the truth. ABC, CBS and NBC cover up for Obama.

Petraeus, Obama

Conservatives are in a conundrum. They desperately want to tie President Obama to the sex scandal but at the same time are reluctant to throw General Petraeus under the bus.

Limbaugh's example

David Limbaugh's column about "being smarter about how we approach Hispanics, the young, blacks, single women, etc.," should be read by his more famous brother. When Rush is serious and explaining policy, he is excellent. When he pillories the hypocrisy of so much of liberalism, he can be persuasive. But too often he is mean and demeaning. No wonder so many in the group David Limbaugh says need a better sales job have problems with Republicans. His brother Rush provides a bad example.

Missouri, Obamacare

Missouri's bet against the implementation of Obamacare (upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and Obama won re-election) is a serious mistake at the expense of many, including the small businesses the Affordable Care Act was in large part designed to help.

Smartphone apps

I call upon the mayor and city council of Cape to require the development of smartphone apps so that the local government can be made more transparent and so that the citizenry can participate directly in the development of local policy.

Mitt who?

Republicans are trying to rid themselves of Mitt Romney so quickly that when his name is mentioned a year or so from now, folks will say, "Mitt who?"

GOP governors

Here's a head scratcher for you. In the name of resisting a federal government takeover of health care, Republican governors are turning health care over to the federal government.

Rush needs to rush over the cliff.

Smartphone apps: There is already a smartphone app, it's call city council meetings.....attend them and be part of the solution.

Limbaugh: A year from now it will be Limbaugh who. Agree with you Dexterite1.

Missouri, Obamacare: Guess we will find out what was in all of those pages that nobody has read during 2013 and 2014.

Thanks to God or any other Supreme Being that one might worship for all of our blessings.

I believe this up-coming year the President and congress will sit down at the table and fine tune the affordable care act before it is fully implemented January 1 2014. No doubt it does need to be repaired and I believe we will see that in 2013.

GOP governors

Check out the reason why.

Here is Perry's statement: "It would not be fiscally responsible to put hard-working Texans on the financial hook for an unknown amount of money to operate a system under rules that have not even been written".

Notice the words "financially Responsible". Words the Democrats ignore.

This thing is going to implode on itself.

Petraeus, Obama;

Has anyone else noticed the hypocrisy here? When a liberal is involved in a sex scandal they are immediately defended with excuses like "it has nothing to do with their job" or "they're just expressing an alternative lifestyle." When it's a conservative there's only one response from the media. "HE...MUST...BE...DESTROYED!"

GOP Governors are smarter than Obama - and so are Missourians. We voted to prevent Democrat Jay Nixon from implementing a health care exchange in Missouri without legislature approval. Nixon's hands are tied - and WE did it.

This is typical Obama. He signs something that he really isn't sure what's in it and then he puts the financials on the states to do his bidding. The states are saying ********** - something I can't print here.

Obama,Petraeus - has nothing to do with "throwing Petraeus under the bus". Petraeus threw himself under the bus. Stupid of him to do that and I'm sure he regrets it. What in the world is your point? A typical democrat trying to blame Obama's problems on republicans? Is it still "Bush's fault"? You democrats are so simple minded and blindly loyal to this failure of a president.
