    LOL, and on CNN......I monitored till half past the hour and then stopped......all they thought was news today was the big soccer match. More and more people are starting to tune them out....or at least go to other outlets such as the internet (i.e.Twitter), radio, or Fox to get their news. In fact there is no filter on Twitter and the photos shown on internationial issues are breathtaking in their rawness.


    CNN and MSNBC both keep dropping in ratings. But they don't care. Their goal is not news....it's advocacy. Except they're reaching less and less people each month.

Feel free to become a citizen journalist and get the word out to your networks.

    Also other news yesterday. Haven't had time to talk about my fav subject, the economy, to mention 1rst Q GDP was revised DOWN to a negative 3% - proving liberal, big spending Keysnian economic approach is also a disaster.

    We are a 17 trillion dollar economy. For it to actually CONTRACT by 3% (multiply 17Trillion x .03) is definitely caused by a lot more than just the weather that libs are claiming. Weather can affect GDP -we've had winters and bad weather for ions- but not enough to push it into NEGATIVE GDP.

    And this isn't just negative territory. This is a shrinking by 3 whole percentage points. As in 3% of a $17 trillion dollar economy.

    Anyone who's telling you it's the weather...and in some cases even more stupidly saying because of Obamacare.....needs to be nixed as a reliable source of information on the economy.

    I agree with Cannady. The big difference is that Nixon was a Republican and Obama a Democrat. There will be no media pressure, the fence sitters won't be demanding Obama to step down and the right knows better. Covering up for them and highlighting problems on the right, even trumped up ones is a big part of the left's playbook. That's why we are where we are today. TV rules and sound bites are about the limit of most Americans' attention span.

    I certainly understand your cynicism, gentlemen. Boy, do I understand. I've been having this "have faith" debate with all my military, LE, and conservative friends for about 3 years now, and I'm always outnumbered.

    They were looking for a change and a change they got; not for the better. When he was elected to his first term, Mr. Obama was merely a symbol of everything that George Bush was not. Bush got a turd sandwich early on in his administration and whatever good he could have possibly done was overshadowed by the crappy economy and 911.

    started a topic Prediction - Parallels Between Nixon and Obama

    Prediction - Parallels Between Nixon and Obama

    Anyone who's studied the Watergate years will recognize a similar pattern with President Obama's current woes.

    The wheels are coming off his Presidency because the screw ups can't be hidden...and they keep increasing.

    VA Scandal, Iraq debacle, Outting of CIA Chief of Station, Putin mess, Syria, drawing fake red lines , Bergdahl/5 Taliban released, NSA, AP emails, Fast &Furious, southern border a mess....sh*t, I can't even keep up with all of them. But the thing that's about to take him down - in my opinion - is going to be the IRS email destruction COVERUP.

    The reason I equate it to the Nixon years is because early on, Nixon got away with the same thing Obama and his allies have been getting away with - basically claiming opponents are partisan and conspiracy nuts.

    And Nixon almost succeeded, just as Obama has almost succeeded with the help of the corrupt press.

    But.......against all the claims that accusers were nuts, eventually they found the smoking gun with Nixon. That was the tapes.

    Alas, anyone that doesn't think these missing IRS emails aren't the smoking gun of a coverup with the Obama Administration just isn't paying attention.

    I predict this is the issue that will doom him.
