Lost? They have no map, no plan and no sense. Just wait. This interview will cause right wing apoplexy.

    “Some of those folks [in Congress] think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win the presidency.”

    Sad, but true.

    You guys really can’t take this interview seriously right? Just because his agenda is challenged by elected representatives of a constituency who sent the there to oppose him, his power is somehow being “usurped”? Gimme a break. And now he is going to focus on the economy and middle class. What a bunch of crap. The economic indicators couldn’t be worse five years into his reign, so I kind of wish he wouldn’t focus on the middle class. It definitely seems that he is doing more harm than good.

    Did you hear Bernanke say the other day that if we stop pumping $80 billion a month into the economy (QE), the economy would tank? This Obama economy is built on sand, and Obamacare could be the mechanism that takes it all down. If the IMF pulls our reserve currency status – inflation, interest rates and unemployment will sky rocket.

    Good times indeed.

      If that happens, then you will be proven correct.

      Cluster, I did not say that his power has been usurped by elected representatives who oppose him, nor did the president. Read the quote again:

      “Some of those folks [in Congress] think I usurp my authority by having the gall to win the presidency.”

      He’s effectively stating what has been obvious since November 2008, which is that some Americans truly do not accept the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s presidency. I absolutely believe that to be the case, based on what conservatives themselves have said over last five years, and things that have been said directly to me by so-called conservatives. I’ve seen it with my own eyes and heard it with my own ears.

      There is a contingent of conservatives, including some elected ones, who truly believe that President Obama has “usurped” his authority by “having the gall to win the presidency.” You see it in the never-ending questioning of his legitimacy and the never-ending faux scandals. Personally, I think this has to do with a certain portion of Americans who are threatened by changing American demographics, and their fears play out in attempts — both directly and indirectly — to undermine the legitimacy of this president. It’s not just about his policies; if that were the case, then Republicans wouldn’t have had to renounce policies they once supported. There’s clearly more to it than that.

        …..some Americans truly do not accept the legitimacy of Barack Obama’s presidency.

        When is the whining going to stop? The portion of Americans you just described probably represent 5% of the populace. But you know what? 5% of the American public also think Martians live amongst us. Lets focus on the majority of clear thinking adults who are living the nightmare of this Presidents policies and stop whining about people being mean to him.

        The number of morons who aren’t sure Obama is a natural born citizen is actually 25% of all people and 45% of Republicans. Several of your friends at the other site fall into that category. Do they also believe Martians live among us?

        Gotta agree with kmg, here. There are a lot of crazy conservatives.

        According to a recent poll, about 25% of Americans believe President Obama may be the Antichrist. That is downright lunacy.

        To be fair, Republicans weren’t the only ones, but they were the majority.

        A 2012 poll showed that 34% of self-described conservative Republicans think Barack Obama is a Muslim.

        Anther 2012 poll shows that 51% of Republicans think President Obama was born in a foreign country, and another 21% percent weren’t sure.

        Well first of all, Obama is an apostate Muslim, and to think otherwise is to not understand the tenets of Islam. And let me be the devils advocate here, it was Obama himself who first claimed he was born in Kenya in his bio for his first book, so you may want to ask Obama why he did that. Was he lying to sell books? Or was he telling the truth?

        Actually, it was the publisher who put the blurb on the book. And, when the Mormons baptize Jewish Holocaust victims into their faith after they die, they must now be Mormons, right? To think otherwise is to not understand the tenets of Mormonism.

        So cluster, do you think Obama might be the anti-Christ, too?

    Which may be reflected in the distributors decision to drop Limbaugh and Hannity.

    kmg, I’ll bet Amazona does. She probably is an expert. Just ask her. I’ll bet she advised Riddley Scott. Her thinking is certainly alien.

      If you think Cumulus is dropping Limbaugh and Hannity because of some kind of popular outrage I have some very bad news for you.

      First off Cumulus hasn’t dropped anyone yet. The negotiations are still on going. This is all about the $$$.

      Second. Show me the money!! And since this doesn’t have a rats patootie to do with our tax dollars being wasted, let em fight I say. Just like the fast workers and fast food management.
