DUNG! I would say, that just about covers your comments above.
By the way, Igor...........lay off the weed. Seems by your comments you have had more than your share.
What a hateful heart!
I wonder when the Tea Party will start using their correct name!
They are "John Birchers." Remember the "John Birch Society" during the 70s. They use to offer free copies of their newspaper "The Spotlight,' which could found in one of the newspaper box stands.
The insurance companies are the BIGGEST crooks in this country. I used to be employed by the largest one in the Midwest. We were taught how to avoid paying parts of payments for cancer patients. IN OTHER WORDS, insurance companies will lie, cheat and steal to avoid paying.
Vino........during the biblical days, they would be ranting, that Jesus was black. Christ did NOT have white skin, blue eyes and long flowing brown hair. He had dark skin, dark eyes and wore short hair....and he would be a liberal.
By the Nam..............Gallup is owned by a Republican, who's polls ALWAYS favor the Republicans, even when they are loosing.
And exactly who are they calling! Republican areas?
Seems you forgot.............the Republicans approval rating are at an all time low..............lower, than Pres. Obama.
Not checking your facts, AGAIN!
As The Atlantic and ThinkProgress have reported, the ad promotes a flat-out lie circulated by right-wing media that the Obama administration has provided some type of free phone welfare benefit. In fact, the phone program was established in the 1980s under President Ronald Reagan and continued through the George W. Bush administration. The decision to depict an African-American woman on welfare thanking Obama for her phone appears to be a deceptive ploy to inject racial resentment into the election.
The Tea Party Victory Fund has used former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell as its spokesperson to push the ad. But the makers of the ad may have much closer ties to mainstream Republicans. According to disclosures with the Federal Elections Commission, the group sponsoring the ad has paid $26,737 to an Indiana-based consulting firm called The Prosper Group (and an affiliate, known as Conservative Connector).
The Prosper Group boasts on its website that it helped Senator Scott Brown raise $12 million online and has worked in the past for Republicans like Pete Hoekstra (R-MI), Allen West (R-FL), Sharron Angle (R-NV), Dan Coats (R-IN), Michael Grimm (R-NY) and Sean Bielat (R-MA). A further search of FEC reports show that freshman lawmakers like Tom Reed (R-NY) and Todd Young (R-IN), as well as Tea Party favorite Richard Mourdock (R-IN) and Senator Brown’s current re-election effort, have made payments this cycle to the firm.
I called the firm earlier today, and spoke to several people. At first, a representative said he would transfer me to the account executive who worked on the ad campaign. Later, someone from the Prosper Group asked how I received contact information with the firm and explained that the firm never had any association with the Tea Party Victory Fund. After some prodding, one of the staffers with the Prosper Group conceded that they had indeed worked with the group sponsoring the Obama Phone ad, but that I should speak with a “partner” of the firm named Jordan Gerhke. Gerhke, a former deputy campaign manager with Sharron Angle’s Senate race in 2010, confirmed with The Nation that he worked on the ad campaign. He however disconnected the call after being asked about work with the Prosper Group.
When asked about the payments from the Tea Party Victory Fund to his consulting firm, another account manager with the Prosper Group named Joe Zapf simply hung up the phone.
Maybe his point is.............you don't check the FACTS.
