  1. Hey you stupid Trumpnicks, think about the last time you/we had a Republockin president. We entered into the worst Depression the country had even seen! And who pulled us out of it? Obama did that's who! Yes think about your 401k's think about the millions losing their livelihoods, the equity in their homes, their credit, their nest eggs, and you stupid idiot moron conservatives think we're better off that way. Idiots.

  3. Reposted - too many grammar errors

    Obama's ineffective Executive Actions on gun control/civilian disarmament [as we predict they will be]; will be based on lies. POTUS falsely asserts that any gun rights/civil liberties group endorses violent felons and/or the mentally ill be allowed legal ownership of a firearm......and falsely asserts the invented meme to the "gun show loophole". It simply doesn't exist.

    Further, the desire to enact "universal background checks" is political theater, as this is utterly unenforceable without.........universal registration.

    POTUS relies on perfidious memes such as "assault weapons" while being thoroughly ignorant on the mechanics of a firearm, as well as failing to introspectively ask himself, if these are "military weapons of war" "designed for use on the battlefield".....why are they the service rifles of our civilian law enforcement?

    But foundationally, POTUS and his sycophants present their foundation for civilian disarmament on a premise that the right to keep and bear arms is not a Constitutionally protected, individual right. Thus, while pissing on the 2nd Amendment....the intellectual midgets reveal their acquiescence to allowing the same treatment of every other Constitutionally protected, individual right....precedence will have been set.

  6. My New Years Message to You All Here.January 2, 2016 at 10:23:00 AM EST

    dear republicans,
    How proud you must be feeling today about your childish tweets to say good riddance to a great American who served his country with honor. The list of his accomplishments is long and impressive, but you wouldn't know anything about long impressive lists of accomplishments....His love for country is evident in every move he made whether it be civil rights, voting rights, criminal justice....His passion, compassion, and courage is extraordinary...but what do you know about compassion and courage?....
    You have vilified this good man throughout the years, your relentless attacks, your attempts to smear his reputation, none of it put a blemish on his record. It will be Eric Holder and Barack Obama in the history books, side by side, as two of the great leaders, not YOU republicans, you repulsive, repugnant, irrelevant haters.....
    So carry on with your little tweets, your 10% brainwashed base thinks they are funny, the rest of us can't wait to vote you out of existence.

    Fuck you ALL and good by,

  10. Bill Clinton lost a LOT his" credibility" when he decided that the white house was his own personal playgirl mansion and that he has the right to lay hands on any other woman than that thing he married. Does this guy remember ANYTHING about how the same people that he calls the "mainstream" were also calling for Clinton's impeachment? Bill is not even in the equation....it's Hillary. At this point Bill has his own heart,problem, hand tremors, and I heard that he can't even get it up any more.

  12. Clinton and her Liberal ass kidding liberal bias Media have repeatedly attacked Donald Trump as sexist. Rather than do what the Republican Establishment always does when faced with this kind of attack — crumple into a small ball and go to their Special Place until the election is lost — by honing in on Bill Clinton’s sordid, sexist past, Trump has had Hillary and her media on defense all week.

    Today, at a massive rally in South Carolina, Trump just turned the heat up to 11, with the claim that former President Bill Clinton is “one of the great abusers of the world.”

    1. Y'all have to look at this quote and what Trump had to say just seven years ago about the thing he’s attacking Clinton on now:

      “He [George W. Bush] lied! got us into the war with lies! And, I mean, look at the trouble Bill Clinton got into with something that was totally unimportant, and they tried to impeach him, which was nonsense. And yet Bush got us into this horrible war with lies, by lying!”

      So seven years ago, Clinton’s sex scandal was “totally unimportant,” but now it’s a big deal.

      Hahahahaha! Trump is all over the place on this Clinton "scandal." Changing his mind like he changes his tightie whities. Hahahahahaha!

    3. Roger Mexico,

      Impeaching Clinton was nonsense.

      While in light of impeachment, Bill's dalliances with barely-legal women was "totally unimportant," his behavior is an issue now.

      Hillary's howler monkeys are screaming that Trump is a sexist, so Bill's trips to Pedo Island on the Lolita Express, rape allegations, etc, are fair game and open to discussion, as is Hillary's decades-long enabling the sexual pervert that she rode to power.

And, I mean, look at the trouble Bill Clinton got into with something that was totally unimportant, and they tried to impeach him, which was nonsense. And yet Bush got us into this horrible war with lies, by lying!” --Donald Trump defending Bill Clinton

      As far as I know, Bill Clinton was never charged or found guilty of rape, If Trump wants to dabble in sexual accusations he'll answer to the fact that he entered into an adulterous affair with Marla Maples while married to Ivana, and had an affair with wife #3 while married to wife #2. Trump and Gingrich are two Christian peas in an adulterous pod that the very religious evangelical GOP has no trouble supporting.

    6. Bold Face doesn't change the facts. Clinton's serial philandering was unimportant in light of impeachment, but Hillary is running for president, so her serial enabling and active "bimbo eruption" smear campaigning are indeed issues of interest and germane to this presidential campaign.

      And she opened the door to this when she said that the voices of those claiming sexual abuse should be automatically believed.

      What was she thinking when she issued that statement?

  14. Happy New Year,AOW.

    I think the highlight of 2015 was the Paris Climate conference where we really showed all those impudent ISIS terrorists what Barack Obama is made of. Oh, what a renouncement of terrorism the climate conference was. It made me cry crocodile tears, and wishing that we had more community organizers in chief executive positions around the world.

    It is a amazing that an unknown man, having a gifted education at some of the best universities in the world, with exactly zero achievements, having held no job, and having produced no recognizable work product in his entire life, can become the most powerful man in the world, and simultaneously become the laughing stock of the world.

  16. "yet Bush got us into this horrible war with lies, by lying!" Well, Mr. Trump is certainly all over the map, isn't he. First, he idolizes single payer health insurance, then he repeats THIS discredited trope?

    "The very religious right has no trouble supporting" this? Whoa! RM I give you permission to get your head out of sand any time now. Not a Trump fan, and not a fan of taking up with other women when you are married to another. But as far as I can tell, these were all consensual.

    I feel no need for a re-do on Bill Clinton's consensual infidelities, but his criminal behavior is still a fair target. To the extent that his spouse aided and abetted the cover-ups, and went gunning for his victims that makes HER a fair target for her culpability. But can't we just talk about what a rotten record she has and shine a light on her bankrupt ideas?

      Irony: Hillary to Sexual Assault Victims: "You Have The Right To Be Heard, You Have The Right To Be Believed".

      I've also heard that many news anchors were shocked to learn what a history Bill Clinton as a sexual predator. These news anchors weren't around or at the age of awareness when so much about Bill Clinton's sexual escapades were coming to light.

      I suppose that a wife can forgive one infidelity. But serial infidelity? Forgive that over and over again?

      Why did Hillary stay married to Bill? She doesn't strike me as being the long-suffering-wife type.

  17. When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.
    Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.
    Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.
    Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
    Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.
    Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.
