    There is a lot of truth in this photo and it's sad, just sad. There are so many real issues that could be discussed and yet some in the media and the left prefer to look for something that can be twisted a little to make a joke and then run with the joke. It's easy to imagine Bevis and Butthead saying "Big bird, hee, hee, hee, hee. He said Big bird!"

    Sad (and juvenile and desparate) that this is what the Democratic party has to run on. God knows they can't run on their record.

    Sad to say but it was the GOP candidate who gave the fodder to the press. The Democrats did not set up the memes. Real people were disgusted by the lack of quallity answers. Balance the budget by doing away with PBS, answer a question about equal pay with a lie about his developing binders of women, and finally discussing warfare with comparisons of the early 1900's which left him open for pointing out how things have changed.

    I disagree about the record of Obama. I do know the record of the Grover Norquist run House of the past two years and their plan to destroy Obama at any cost. The cost has been in filibusters going nowhere, disgusting comments by GOP and conservative commentators, and in general a disdain for politics. Many who really believe in democracy see the US turned into an oligarchy and being purchased by corporations and flooded with SuperPAC ads.

    There is enough blame to go around. The Democratic Party has not run on those memes. Additionally, they were not the ones who thought it brilliant to have an actor talk to an empty chair. Many in the Republican Party have set themselves up for ridicule. Don't blame the party for the individuals who find humor in dark subjects.

    That's your opinion. Mine is that they are pandering to the lowest common denominator (intelligence-wise) in this country. It's ridiculous.

    Here's the lack of quality answer(s) that I'm disgusted by....the whole Benghazi (cover up) issue. He is going to lose because of it....my prediction.

    But they are the party who has a co-Chairwoman, an actress, who used a very questionnable word in a tweet. They apparently are okay with that.

    Who remembers the Republican debates?

    You don't really want to go tit for tat about behaviors. Betwen Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin only this week I would think Republicans would be rather embarassed by their talking heads. I could go on for pages but it is not fair to kick a sick elephant.

    How do you know this?

    I will say that the actual words used by either Sarah Palin or Ann Coulter are not and have never been as low as what so many of the Hollywood elite, supporting Obama in actions and funding are.

    Eva Longoria likened GOP voters as "tw*ts, and the list for stuff like that is as long as the Democratic Hollywood supporter list.

    Eva is the co-chair of the DNC or some such committee, very high-ranking and obviously the party as a whole and the President do not disapprove of her language, because she's still there as co-chair.

    We could start with Romney's endorsement of the man who thinks a baby of rape is a gift from God. His only endorsement to a man who apparently has no problem with rape. Another example? Romney with a serial rapist many times? Shall we go on? have not even started on The Family and their perversions.

    Oh, I thought we were talking about people who make a living talking about the candidates: people like Bill Maher, most of Hollywood, Not-funny types like Sarah Silverman, and yes, Sarah P. and Ann C. who do commentary as well.

    There is absolutely no comparison between the kind of language that is used against and to describe the conservatives and that the conservative commentators use against the Democrats.

    Shoot, only yesterday the President himself, in a Rolling Stone interview, used the word that means "male bovine feces maker" to describe Romney.

    To which family are you referring? I have never seen this phrase capitalized, except when referring to the Holy Family. Is that what you mean?
