Goosy, more “far right extremists... opening your mouth and inserting something... far right extremists... rush limbaaa lies, exagerations and hate... Get a grip”?

For a winner you sure are angry. Maybe a little less caffeine? Or some deep breathing exercises. “Ommmm hope and change, hope and change, hope and change...”

Now that you’re calmer, tell us all about all those jobs Barry Obribery has “created” this month while he was taking his $7 MILLION golf vacation in Hawaii. The 22 MILLION STILL JOBLESS Americans you conned into voting for your Partier in Chief need something to brighten their day.

Seriously, I come to the NR for affirmation? I got my affirmation on Nov 6 funny guy. Did you?

The far right extremists post NOTHING but "negative aspersions on anyone who disagrees with your point of view." You may want to read some posts on here before opening your mouth and inserting something.

Would you care to count the superlatives used by the usual gang of far right extremists in this article alone, compared to those of other posts?

PS..I don't look for engagement. Its useless here. I enjoy posting facts proving that the continual stream of negative superlatives of the far right are nothing more than rush limbaaa lies, exagerations and hate.

Good try. Get a grip.

Goose, if you are looking for affirmation of your views here it's going to be a long wait. Your sole approach to proving your points is casting negative aspersions on anyone who disagrees with your point of view. Even members of Congress agree to disagree, but not in your world where disagreement in unAmerican. Can there truly be no substantive argument you can make without superlatives? You may find others more willing to engage you on your opinions, but it seems you don't want that.

Obama 'shakes the hand' of Israel with one hand, (in the public eye), but fails to reveal the knife he has in his other hand.

"Smiling faces sometimes pretend to be your friend.

Smiling faces show no traces of the evil that lurks within.

Beware. Beware of the handshake that hides the snake,

I'm tellin' you beware of the pat on the back it just might hold you back.

Don't let the handshake and the smile fool ya.

Take my advice I'm only tryin' to school ya." - Bobbi Humphrey

Gooseman, five raving posts in over an hour, of “duhhhhhhhhhhRAT... duhhhhhhhhhhhhRAT... daWraith... Rush Limpballs... YOU KNOW NOTHING. STFU!... I can smell you from here... duhhhhhhhRAT... nutcase... nutcase...”

Goosy, I sense you have some OCD and anger issues, like many of the all-caps, screeching, ranting “progressives” here. You don’t own any assault rifles, do you? If so, seek help immediately. If not, keep posting, because it’s always entertaining to listen to a raving lunatic rant, and the NR needs the website hits ad bucks. LOL

"Defense Minister Ehud Barak and President Shimon Peres praised Obama’s commitment to Israel: BARAK: I should tell you honestly that this administration under President Obama is doing, in regard to our security, more than anything that I can remember in the past. … In terms of the support for our security, the cooperation of our intelligence, the sharing of sorts in a very open way even when there are differences. PERES: When I look at the record of President Obama concerning the major issues, security, I think it’s a highly satisfactory record, from an Israeli point of view."

So let me get this straight. Hitler committed genocide against the Jews, but according to you "Hitler had a higher regard for the Jewish people"? But current Jewish Leaders praise Obama?

Get some help, nutcase.

duhhhhhhhRAT "Hitler was much MORE popular than Obama. Hitler also had a higher regard for the J&wish people!"

Really? What a sad nutcase you are.

"A group of rabbis and leaders from the Conservative movement of Judaism are commending President Barack Obama after a White House meeting on Tuesday, when they questioned him on issues ranging from the environment and immigration to the Israel-Palestine conflict and sanctions against Iran."

"The most recent Gallup survey shows that over 54% of Jewish-Americans support the president - 54% the latest poll from ISRAEL itself shows overwhelming support by Jews for the president."

daWraith Jan-09-13 9:39 PM "Greeceman, Almost 60 million voted Against Obama. The majority of people in 85% of the county voted against Obama."

Here is a little reminder of the facts for you.

Obama is one of a FEW Presidents to win over 51% of majority in two terms.

2008 Electoral Votes O-365 McSame/Failin-173(lol) States O-28 McSame/Failin-22 Popular Vote Obama by over 10 million

2012 Electoral Votes O-332 roMONEY/LyinRyan-206 Popular Vote 66million VOTED AGAINST roMONEY/LyinRyan

Your feeble attempts to find some validity are useless.

The majority of the people in the USA voted against far right extremist roMONEY/LyingRYan. The Dems picked up two seats in the Senate. The majority of the people in the USA voted for Dems in the House. The Dems picked up 8 seats in the House.

How many times do a I have to tell you that mountains, rivers and valleys don't get to vote more than people?

The Choomer in Ch been GREAT for the gun and ammo industries. They’re flying off the shelves faster than gun and ammo manufacturers can make them. Wonder why so many Americans, liberals and conservatives alike, are arming themselves to the teeth? Where did all the “hope and change” go?

“Smith & Wesson stock was zooming Friday, thanks to a stellar earnings report. The firearms maker also boosted its outlook for the rest of the year. Because of the strong business, its backlog of orders more than doubled from the same quarter last year, the company is concentrating on boosting production and building inventory... And another gun maker, Sturm, Ruger & Co., also hit a milestone of sorts in terms of meeting consumer demand. It produced its 1-millionth gun of the year, well ahead of last year’s pace. "It took us nearly all of 2011 to build 1 million firearms, but in 2012 we accomplished it on August 15th,” said Ruger President and CEO Mike Fifer in a statement.” - NBC

"President Wants $1 Million Donors" No kidding! President Obama wants everything YOU own. Your money, your land, and your property. You ignorant liberals included. Obama doesn't even like you. But he would sure suck-it-up and give you a heartfelt hug for a photo op. The Cheeser-in-Chief thanks you for your support.

A little appreciation could be extended for the man who saved you all from the cliff. Wouldn't hurt anybody to sell a pint of their blood if need be to get the piddly dollar the great man asks for.

In Obama's world, pledges are only meant to break.

The next 4 years will be the ugliest most destructive & costliest time in U.S. history. More-so than the previous 4 years.

If you hunger for truth. If you hunger for righteousness. And if you love life, then the next 4 years will be a very difficult time for you to endure. But be of good cheer....when the enemey comes in like a flood, The Lord will raise up a standard against him. Even Satan has his limitations.

From the Urban dictionary:

Goose 1195 up, 457 down A verb, which means to grab someone between their butt cheeks and to squeeze, almost with an intent to hurt, although it is often done in a joking, playful manner between friends. The most common way to goose someone is with the fingers and thumb of one hand. The fingers grab from the bottom, and the thumb from the top. Then, in an upwards, and squeezing motion, you goose them. It is normally done while the "receiver" is wearing clothes, although there is no reason why it couldn't be done without clothes. How gooseman got his name?

Gooseman, summarized: “Blah blah blah far right extremist whiners yadda yadda thank our Lord blah blah roMONEY was sent packing waa waaaa waaaa know-nothing liars waaa waaa waaaa whining blah blah cheese with your whine?”

Cheese with your whine? You probably think that archaic saw is still clever. LOL

Third grade level? Goosy, your contraction for “it is” needs an apostrophe. Twice. LOL

Now go tell Barry Bankrupter that when he gets done with his multi-MILLION dollar party for his Hollywood pals and wall street cronies 22 MILLION jobless Americans are STILL waiting for the hope and change.

If you can stomach to read the posts of the far right extremist whiners, mostly written on a third grade level, you thank our Lord, that roMONEY was sent packing by the majority of the American people. Having these know-nothing liars in charge of anything would have been the end of this great Nation. Nothing Obama accomplishes will ever be worthy of their consideration because its not about what is good for America, its all about hate, being a minority and whining about it, day in and day out. How about some cheese with your whine?
