No one who has more than three-fifths of a brain would make such a stupid statement. Matthews obviously has never studied the Constitutional Convention debates. 1. Anti-Slavery people wanted the slaves to be counted as ZERO for purposes of representation and 100% for purposes of taxation. 2. Slave-owners wanted the slaves to be counted as 100% for purposes of representation but ZERO for purposes of taxation. The compromise was three-fifths for both representation and taxation. And the Native Americans were counted as ZERO people. Does Chris Matthews think the Indians' votes should still be counted as ZERO?
If Harry could save even one sick child? "Why would I want to do that?" he asks in a revealing, but rare moment of truth. Harry Reid is shameless. He should resign as Majority Leader and as Senator. Anyone willing to sacrifice sick children to play political games is not worthy of any public office.
We have completely lost our common sense. How can playing with a harmless toy in your own yard be against any school's rules? This is so absurd, at first I actually thought it was a joke. .
The House of Representative just passed and sent to the Senate, an increase in the debt ceiling which authorizes the most expensive budget in the history of mankind ... but one without Obamacare. And Harry Reid accuses them of being "anarchists"?
Question for the Gun-Control advocates: Why do mass murderers ALWAYS attack unarmed people in gun-free zones?
Newt's first knee-jerk reaction to any problem is a government program to solve it. Remember his plan to create a "draft-board" type agency to handle illegal immigrants? I'm not convinced he is a conservative. And Karl Rove? He shouldn't be on the list.
I was living in L.A. at the time. I realized that the striking controllers had completely lost touch with the working folks when, in a front page newspaper article, one of the striking controllers was interviewed in front of his backyard swimming pool, commiserating that he didn't know how he'd make ends meet ... he guessed he might have to sell his yacht.
Reagan won because he dared to make the case for conservatism and communicated well-crafted conservative ideas with conviction. He was a leader who convinced those moderates to try his conservative ideas. In his attempt to woo the independents, Romney's message was, basically, "Obama's a nice guy and he tried, but his ideas did not work. I can do better." That wasn't a conservative message. The conservative message did not lose, it was never made.

Actually, she's rich and she supported Obama in the last 2 elections. She even had Michele on her show. How's that for progressive elitism?

The last time she used the inappropriate word was 30 years ago? No one has come forward to dispute her claim. No one has come forward and said, "Oh no. I heard her talking like this last week." Come on. There has to be a statute of limitations. Paula Deen knows the slur is unacceptable and she doesn't use the term anymore. Unless someone credibly disputes this, let's show a little forgiveness.
The racists in this country just don't know whose side to be on: on the side of Trayvon Martin because George Zimmerman is Hispanic, or on the side of George Zimmerman because Trayvon Martin is black? Being handicapped, I'm on the side of justice, because she is blind.
