Not "short term" memory, it's "selective" memory.

And the big time investors are pulling out of the market the weathly percentage everyone talks about, makes a big difference as you can see from the stock market yesterday with the exception of Warren Buffett. When things get better for them and stocks drop even more they will buy low, they have the money to do so and can ride it out for years, most people don't even pay attention or have the money to buy low, how can some even pay attention when they need to work 2 jobs & support a family.

Can't blame Obama for the stock market.

Why do you outsource your thought process?


"They’re our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska."

The Full unedited transcript of the Palin V Gibson interview



I'm inclined to think you also don't know the alleged "Africa is a country" scandal was hoax?

"Eisenstadt identifies himself on a blog as a senior fellow at the Harding Institute for Freedom and Democracy. Yet neither he nor the institute exist; each is part of a hoax dreamed up by a filmmaker named Eitan Gorlin and his partner, Dan Mirvish, the New York Times reported Wednesday."

MSNBC Retracts Story Sourced By Hoax Martin Eisenstadt


Palin also isn't leading an invasion of North Africa.

"Rachel Maddow slammed conservatives for attacking President Obama's Egypt policies. Her targets included Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, former ambassador to the UN John Bolton and Stephenson Billings at ChristWire.org. Only problem is Stephenson Billings is not a real person"

The day Obama was elected to office, gas prices were $1.79 a gallon...

And gas prices under Bush were not high for 6 years.. Spare me the talk about who's being silly...

I have a hard time disagreeing with her that it isn't Skippy's fault. He's at least partially to blame.
