  1. Democrats don’t do facts.

  2. Speaking of Democrats …

    Did anyone see the CNN discussion in which the panel pondered the following question:

    “Putin bullying Obama?”

    I wonder if Richie Incognito is available for comment. At the very least, I believe that professionally trained middle school counselors should get involved ASAP.

  3. Well, the Democrats are worth less than when Ronald Reagan was in office.
    At least then, they didn’t lie their a$$e$ off, and if they make a deal – they kept a deal FTMP.

  4. Does anybody but me wonder if this is on purpose, just as the sign at the college that said that Lincoln was a Democrat.

    If you tell a lie long enough and loud enough and often enough, it has a truth all it’s own.

  5. For a Prog, truth is whatever they say it is, and has no connection to the reality of the matter.
    Anything to accomplish an end.

  6. You see, back in those days, rich men would ride around in Zeppelins, dropping coins on people, and one day I seen J. D. Rockefeller flying by. So I run out of the house with a big washtub and–Where are you going?

  9. Reagan was in Congress? This is new one to Yoda! Obi-Wan accessed the Imperial Records and can find no trace of Ronald Reagan being listed as member of congress.

    he visited there a couple of times – even gave a few SOTU addresses

  11. Since they call themselves Democrats, why can’t we call it the Democrat party?

    They’re no more democratic than the next person in this country. It’s just another of the left’s word games meant to hide what they truly are and believe. Which is oligarchy, autocracy and strong arm rule.

  12. Which of the 57 states was Reagan’s district in?

  13. When Reagan was in Congress he was still speaking Austrian.

  14. Yes, this is how stupid they are.

  15. The minimum wage isn’t worth what it was when Barack Obama was Mayor of Chicago, let alone what it was when Bill Clinton didn’t inhale.

  16. February 28 does not exist any more, according to the Dems…

    Smock Puppet, "Si tacuisses, philosophus mansisses." (225d0d)

  17. just as the sign at the college that said that Lincoln was a Democrat.

    … or the “Back to School” Verizon commercial with kids “tweeting” (on the radio, mind you) about how Lincoln was a “progressive” president?

  18. Welcome to Oceania, Tovarisch!!

  19. The minimum wage isn’t worth what it was when Democrats opposed segregation and Jim Crow by voting for the Civil Rights Act.

  20. Which of the 57 states was Reagan’s district in?

    The State of Sanity!
    It was thrown out of the Union for setting a bad example.

  21. Now, see, this is the issue. Mr. Feet is all about Teh Tolerance.

    Yet he also rails against misspending money.

    So why not in this case?

    Because it is personal to him, because of his friends—reasoning from the heart, not the head. Okay, maybe a little bit lower than those locations. NTTIAWWT.

    Seriously, the problem is NOT people having freedom of choice in their personal lives. The problem is paying for and promoting specific lifestyle choices. It’s not about freedom (or even permissiveness).

    It’s about Teh Narrative, as always.

    That should be clear, even before folks eat a tasty burrito or two.

  22. Sigh. Wrong thread. It belongs over in the bondage post (that’s just plain funny, too).

  23. All the important twits were in the Crimea briefing, so Obama had to handle the account on his own. Cut him a break; he’s not even old enough to remember when Reagan was in Congress!

    Kevin M (dbcba4)

  24. The real problem is that the Democrat party’s social media messaging is being entirely handled by some self-satisfied 20-something hipster. Pajama Boy, perhaps. This is why their Tweets and Facebook posts are so often moronic and ignorant. I can accept that the young helped propel Obama into the White House, but I never thought he would be so stupid as to give them any important duties.

  25. I remember when the old Gipper was in Congress.

    Those were the good old days, way back when gas was a nickel and you tipped your hat to a lady walking by.

    By God, ol’ Ronnie would pull up a stool and place his foot on it and take you back to the time he drew a Borax mule train before he was a Hellcat in the Navy.

    He wasn’t too smart, though. He just kinda stumbled into another part and all the sudden he was the dadgum President of the whole United States.

    And all of a sudden, people were all proud again and stuff, but he was bad.

    I tell you he was bad ’cause he was all anti-commie and said things like evil empire and the missiles will launch and such.

    And just because, you know, just because, things got a whole lot better, but ol’ Ronnie couldn’t find a finger to pick his nose because he was just a dumb old actor.

    Then, you had that first Bush with the voodoo and not raising taxes and good ol’ boy Clinton dipping his wick in whatever oil lamp that came by.

    And poor old stupid W what with the silver spoon in his mouth.

    Not like today with the whole smartest person in the world as President. Thank you smartest person in the world.

  26. The really sad thing is that whoever wrote this probably wasn’t mistaken about who Reagan was and his history before the White House; rather, he or she probably doesn’t realize that Congress is not composed of state governors.

    Beldar (8ff56a)

  27. No I didn’t read it, just passing it along for those without a normal vomit reflex.

    Wild horses cannot induce me into voting for either.

  28. 22. “reasoning from the heart”

    There’s a lot of that going around. Reputation and one’s day job are immaterial.

    gary gulrud (e2cef3)

  29. Since we have the best president since Pope Martin Luther, this stuff will get sorted out in no time.

  30. I can accept that the young helped propel Obama into the White House, but I never thought he would be so stupid as to give them any important duties.

    Comment by JVW (709bc7) — 3/1/2014 @ 8:22 pm

    It’s the way of the Dems. Recall who infested the Clinton administration?

    Oh, and didn’t Harry “They’re All Liars and Racists and Koch Brothers – All of Them!!” Reid just table the bill to raise the minimum wage after the CBO disclosed it would be a job killer?

    So much for liberal compassion and principal – it is an election year after all and they must be flexible about these things once the sound and fury smearing conservatives has filled enough news cycles.

    Franklin Marshall Davis’ evil spawn thot he’d gain the world throne by acclaim after he spilled our entrails.

    He’d better know how to make coffee or its ‘no soup for you’.

    Tweets like this are what happens when the Democrats control the edumacashiun system. We get kids stupid enough to believe anything.

    Like MSNBC is impartial, John Stewart is a reliable news source, and Oliver Stone makes historical documentaries.

  38. well how about this bit of absurdity;

    Hey remember how we won the Cold War? We let an expansionist empire collapse under the weight of its own militarism. #политика

  39. Democrats don’t do facts.

    Comment by DRJ (a83b8b) — 3/1/2014 @ 11:09 am

    Of course they don’t. You see they are doing “good”, and they will lie, cheat, steal, and make up “facts” because you see, “the ends justify the means.” Just look at what they’ve done to Chevron.

    They lied, cheated, bribed, falsified documents, and while they were at it, took a little for themselves, just because they were doing good and deserved to be compensated.
