But, hey as long as Bill Maher can do it, why not....right, ohhhhh the short memories of the left.....
Sorry, no time and I don't read stuff like the Blaze. Wasn't aware of Bill Maher. We don't have cable. I was just trying to be helpful here.

I thought candidates were completely separate from their SuperPacs?

Note: I don't approve of PAC's and disapprove of the Citizens United decision.

I'd like to see Obama use all the tools in the arsenal of a President to defeat and dispatch the Republican extremists and their puppet nominee. Obama was so naive when he took office. He thought these wackos would compromise for the good of the country. He has learned the facts but still does not take off the gloves. It's time for a scorched earth approach. Our future is at stake.

Creepy, creepy tactics coming from the White House. Above and beyond the normal, "dirty politics." I think we are entering into some extremely dark, scary territory.
I feel so bad for this guy. Talk about being drug over the coals and most of what has been done, apparently is legal. The only questionable part seems to be defermation of character.

MSNBC? Really?
And you and all you righties show your ignorance by only believing The Blaze and other far right web sites.

Personally, I would believe MSNBC over The Blaze anyday.

Yes they need to compromise. Compromise means bills not passing in the Democratically controlled Senate and then blaming it on the Republican House. Compromise means you have to vote for it to know what is in it. Compromise means telling Republicans that they can come along for the ride but have to sit in the back seat. Compromise means Obama's way period.

For once I agree with you. Obama was so naive. He still is naive - an amateur as Willy put it and a puppet. And we need to get him out of office. Our future is at stake!

Haven't most American presidents had one of these? Johnson blackballed Eartha Kitt for speaking out about the Vietnam War. Nixon had an enemies' list. This is hardly earth shaking news.
