Nobama, No Convention

July 13, 2012 by  

More Democrats distance themselves from Obama. It looks like there could be a lot of empty chairs at the Democratic Convention in Charlotte, N.C., in September. The latest defections include three Democratic Congressmen from the State hosting the convention. U.S. Representatives Hayden Rogers, Mike McIntyre and Larry Kissell say they’ll be too busy campaigning to show up. Even more embarrassing for the national ticket, the three men have declined to endorse Barack Obama for re-election.

Would you pay to get off a plane faster? Many airline passengers are already paying extra to board faster or get a preferred seat near the front. Pretty soon you may be able to be first in line to get off — by paying another fee, of course. George Hobica, founder of, says it just makes sense: “They’re willing to pay to board early and sit in those uncomfortable seats, so why wouldn’t they pay for the reverse?” All those extra charges really add up. According to the Transportation Department’s Bureau of Transportation Statistics, in just the first three months of this year, airlines collected $816 million in baggage fees and another $631 million for changes in reservations.

Chris Rock wasn’t funny. As we celebrated the Fourth of July, here’s what comedian Chris Rock tweeted to his thousands of followers: “Happy white peoples independence day the slaves weren’t free but I’m sure they enjoyed the fireworks.” It’s sad how many people like to slam the country that made them rich and famous, isn’t it?

Now that’s a pricey bottle of wine. Austrailian fine wine producer Penfolds has announced that it has produced its most exclusive (and expensive) bottling ever. It has made just 12 bottles of the 2004 Block 42 Cabernet Sauvignon. Each will come in a hand-blown glass vial in a special presentation case. The asking price is a staggering $168,000 per bottle. Only two bottles have been allocated to North America, so if you want one, you’d better hurry.

    Why not do a little more digging as to how the three House Dems voted the last 2 (TWO) years and see if their sudden change of heart match their disassociation from the POTUS. They maybe are wanting to save their hides this November then again maybe WE have some true Patriots with real gutz and praise the Lord ,THEIR DEMOCRATS!

      Throw some religion into the equation, won’t you.
      There has been a paradigm shift of the Democratic Party toward the Far Left. It would make sense that some of the Democrats will be left behind and not follow O.

        Easy to find how they voted in the past just go to UTUBE and bring up Congress it is all their in black and white for all to see. Wish more voters would use the Internet to check on these politicians before they vote their would be huge replacement’s!!!

        • http://yahoo marc lizotte

          Thank you Robert and I agree w/ your comment!

      • http://yahoo marc lizotte

        OK ,no problem, that too!

      • Gene

        I can tell your not from the Southern states. We do put religion in our conversations, so get used to it. We don’t have to change our lives just for you. If you don’t like it go where you came from.

      Don’t count on it marc.. Self-serving turncoats only work between the ropes for their own benefit. They betray their house, you take ‘em in.. first chance they’ll turn on you. Never trust a traitor because whether they work for them or work for you, their stench smells the same when they turn the tables.

      • http://yahoo marc lizotte

        I hear ya mamaz. Still I`m gonna check their voting record on UTUBE-Congress!

    I just hope the Weeper of the House Boehner doesn’t hear about that wine.He is a wino from way back and is notorius in DC as being the top wino in the city’Too much wine acts as a depressant and perhaps that is why he is crying all the time.Not only that I am sure he will figure out a way to make the taxpayers pay that $168,000.00 a bottle tab for him as a way of a government expense.

    • Robert

      Pelosi has illegals working in her grape vineyards in Cali!! She is jealous that she don’t have a $ mega bottle of super wine old Harry would like that wine of course on other peoples money the Socialist way??

    That was a funny comment on the 4th of July which shows he doesn’t even know the history of the US because at that time there were very few negros here in the US as the big plantations in the south had not been set up. Washington had a few at his house and so did Jefferson but I don’t know if that was after the war or before. Lots of black slaves were first in the islands and treated very very badly.


    The faster the R’s push for a conclusion of F&F to expose the unamerican activities of this administration of fraud and deciet, the rats will leave the DNC ship to float aimlessly in a sea of misery and shame. Treason was committed, american agents were killed 300 hundred at last count mexicans were murdered as well and all the guns have not been rounded up as to date. Holder is still loose and causing havoc but now he is in the open and being watched closely, this is a asset to the law and order people and their plan is to jail this SOB and his partner the Fraud in the WH…it cannot happen fast enough, the communist party and their hacks need to be stomped into the ground and banned from mother earth..that’s asking a lot.

    As the days count down toward’s this Big election,you can count on one thing,..doh’blame’r(every time homer simpson messes up,and let’s face it,obama has blamed nearly everybody for how thing’s are going,but has yet to stand up and take any real responsability for anything) will lose more his own political party members,..They are taking a calculated risk,that siding with him,will cost them their jobs,..and,their people have told them that doh’blame’r has got to go,..Poor democrat’s,caught in the middle,what to do?,..The smart one’s have been listening for many month’s now,and they also stopped listening to the “liberal media”,yeah,the one’s who will only tell one side of the story,..the “rainbow house’s” side,which,as we know it,most likely a fabrication with no real truth,..

    “U.S. Representatives Hayden Rogers, Mike McIntyre and Larry Kissell say they’ll be too busy campaigning to show up. Even more embarrassing for the national ticket, the three men have declined to endorse Barack Obama for re-election.”

    Then they need to be branded as butt sniffing traitors.. What would you do if some of your GOP buddies turn tail on you? Or do you plan to hail these chumps as heroes? Don’t matter which side, their nothing but turncoats true and simple, especially when they play both sides (can’t lose with those odds).. We got your names yahoos, re-election is just around the corner. We’ll do to you then as you are doing to us now. You don’t want to endorse your leader? You don’t even want to associate with him? Then stand tall and DECLARE your intentions, don’t cower and make excuses in order to stay in good graces just in case the scales don’t come out the way you expect it.. I’m telling you now.. Pubs don’t tolerate manipulating thumb suckers either.

    • terris

      Now see that is one of the main differences between THE GOP and the Democrats. We don’t expect all of our members to fall in lie behind each other. Everyone has a different opinion, and they have a righy to it.

  • Gordon

    Does anybody with common sense and good taste even give a (expletive deleted) what Chris Rock says tor thinks?

    • Gordon

      misprint, that should be “shirt”. IMO even mentioning “persons like this” is a waste of time and energy…… just like I am doing now. Ignoring their existence would be a better tact.
