Even bipartisan legislation. Even the necessary federal highway bill that passed in the Senate by 74 votes.

Republicans are total failures at running government. How long until the approximately 50% of American voters who are holding this country hostage realize this?

Actually Republicans do have a plan to move the bill forward: Speaker John Boehner wants to start allowing earmarks again. Sometimes you just gotta laugh.

I don't think that it is so much audacity is that it is naivete about who they are really working for.

I tend to agree. I think the term "audacity" gives the Teabaggers too much credit. They're really just useful idiots.

Only when a Democrat is in charge. When they are in charge, they want an all-powerful federal government to do their bidding.

Their bidding is using a powerful arm to BEAT OFF the gay Muslim immigrants.

Repealing the fairness doctrine ensured that public opinion mirrored whoever spent the most money.

Then you should be happy since Democrats have recieved the vast majority of outside special interest money the last 2 decades. Primarily from unions. It's not even close.

Do we really need to compare the money Obama raked in from outside sources in the 2008 election?

FFS - you are even reaching for the Hitler card? Are you really this delusional that you believe the majority of the US and international media are not in the tank for Obama and the Democrats?

Here's a deal, the Democrats can have Fox News and Talk Radio if Republicans get editorial control over NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, NYTimes, Washington Post, LATimes, NPR, and PBS.

Want that deal?

And don't forget the HufPo.

Talk about dog wagging, look in any community on Craigslist, and you'll find no less than about 4 grassroots(?) organizations, hiring people for 24K a year to spread Liberal lies and half truths, just like the Patneters are doing for free. But for the life of me, I can't find a single conservative operation. Just how are the GOP gaining all of power and control over people if they don't have and army of misinformation minions?

I'm going to apply to as many as I can simultaneously, and try to work for about 4 or 5 at one time, then use my time to do Conservative bidding.

I implore all of the GOP patneters to do the same. We must infiltrate, and destroy this evil movement, it is a cancer on the fabric of our society.

The Muslim brotherhood is coming to America, we can't afford 4 more years with a Muslim President.

You're the guy who said Democrats had a near super-majority in the Supreme Court. I think discussing anything with you at this point is a waste of time. You're far too delusional and that one simple assertion from you proves it.

Right wing Republicans must be sick and tired of winning all the time. Republican taxes, Republican trade policy, Republican deregulation, Republican judges, and Republican wars aren't enough for you?

What do you want? 30 more years of more of the same?

Obama isn't a Muslim. If he is, he's not a very devout one.

Obama is a liberal protestant. He went to a UCC church with a nutjob pastor. But that's nothing like Islam.

No, Obama is saving those dictatorial powers for himself when he passed NDAA.

You mean when he signed the NDAA? That law was passed overwhelmingly in both the House and Senate.

So this is like a democratic dictatorship?

Ok. Republicans baaaaaaddd. Democrats gooooood. The bill still provides dictatorial powers to Obama, a bill your supreme leader signed. What is there to understand here?

I really don't care. This country is destined for dictatorship as every world superpower democracy eventually succumbs to dictatorship. It's inevitable and your friends at Fox are helping to accomplish this far ahead of schedule. Greece, Rome, France, England, and many others have done exactly that.

Should Obama have vetoed the NDAA? Yes. Is the passage of the NDAA more important than the economic issues that will destroy our economy? Absolutely not. Dictatorships and revolutions arise out of economic chaos, not obscure provisions buried in defense authorizations.

So basically Obama is playing with matches while you and your psychopath friends are using a flamethrower on an oil refinery. You're so manipulated and brainwashed that all Fox has to do is use the word "Muppet" in a single broadcast and they've got you parroting it a hundred times on a message board.

Do you have any idea how pathetic this makes you look?

Devout my ASS, he just went there as a front so the American public would think he was a good Christian. He didn't even vet Jeramiah Nutjob very well. The guy pulled his Taboo schmeckle out and showed the world what am insane kill whitie Zealot he was. Obama was SO devout, he hasn't been back to any Church since then.

Quite the spirtual sage that one is.

Yes I'm a FOX bot, I spent the whole day over at FOX perusing the news, and it was refreshing to read news, that didn't have mean spirited hateful comments, or race baiting news articles, or news stories telling us how bad Christians are and what great people the Muslim brotherhood are.

I've been told by CNN's reporting, their commenters that are allowed to post what every they want at will that supports CNN"s agenda, while suppressing counter arguments, I've been told by you and many petty Patnet posters that have no respect for other people with counter ideas, that I most definately do not want anther 4 year Democrat administration.

Maybe oneday you guys will grow up, and a pair, and become your free thinkers, and vote Independent, instead of towing the party line.

But until then I'm getting my news from FOX. I'm done with the vile disgusting hate that the Liberal media spreads, while accusing republicans for their sins.

What's that sanctimonious song?
"Before you accuse me, take a look at your self..."

OMG you're right!!!!!! That must have been fake too! All those fake friends and fake church leaders giving fake interviews about fake sermons and fake bake sales.

Obama's daughters received fake Baptisms (those records must have been faked too) by Reverend Wright, which we all know is a fake pastor talking about his fake memories.

You should Cloud, the Liberal media works over time to brainwash how bad Fox news while the Liberal news spreads lies and hate. It's a real double standard. Go read news articles at Foxnews then read articles at CNN, notice the news content, and the theme, they hate America they really do. Also read and compare the comments that are allowed on the sites.

The Picture of CNN is a vile and disgusting hateful spin propaganda machine that the Left accuses Foxnews of.

At least Iwog is making reasonable arguments based on facts, and not just spewing emotional reasoning.

There are some respectable conservative types on Patnet, I think. Rootvg and FortWayne come to mind.

But it seems like there are quite a few "unhinged" far-right types on here spewing the same talking points I can get from AM radio. Cloud, TPB/CaptainShuddup, and HonestAbe come to mind.

Liberals are the GOP best recruiting tool.

November 2008 = Independent with a Liberal leaning.
December 2008 = Leaning away from the Neo Left
December 2008 = December 2011 blown from the Liberal left all the way back to the middle.

March 2012 = Full blown GOP card carrying, Fox news watcher.

Then why is it that if I turn on comedy central's Jon Stewart or The COlbert report or MSNBC, I see constant lampooning of Fox and Rush (specific incidents and recordings), and yet you have never given an example that would make me embarrassed to assert that in comparison to Fox, CNN is extremely objective.

Please TPB, CAptainDimbulb or whatever your name is, just one example. It can't be that hard.

You mental midgets should not conjecture about Muppets if you don't even know one of the theme songs. As for a question being asked, my post was certainly not in response to any question if that's what you call the crap you Aholes spew around here.

I have many unanswered questions my self, life is full of unanswered questions get over your selves. I'm done edifying anything to Censor liberals that bitch whine and moan when they get answers they can't deal with. You guys don't want answers or facts, you just want souls to join your Godless gutless orgy of disgust and despair.

If you're looking for arguments out of me, you're pissing up the wrong rope. My statements are as is, with out warranty, no refunds, and no regrets. I don't retract, and I don't elucidate for anyone's edification, if you're too dim to follow along, then you better call somebody. You only get three life lines, and one phone buddy, use them wisely. Who wants to be a Muppetiare?

I'll take that as a complement, coming from a pompous smug ass elitist prick like you.
Because I could give 3 Shits what you shit birds think. You're the ones making a ToDo about the Muppets, and you don't even know the Animal song. Then to make matters worse, the OP posts about the "Muppetgate" and you Fucksticks want to break it down to the cyllables and then ponder if JP Morgan is a Liberal or a conservative.

But that's OK you have every right to, sunshine and I love you to death for it, bless your simple little heart. But where things really get silly, you're the one calling me stupid.

Yeah except that's exactly the opposite of reality. I stopped listing Cloud's stupid Muppet accusations at eight, but I could have found a dozen more if I tried. I figured a few actual Muppets were in order.

Fox made it fashionable for neocons to call people Muppets, first by accusing the Muppet movie of secretly brainwashing children with communism and then again by reporting on Wall Street using the term to describe investors they were fleecing.
