He doesn't even have to work hard at it, he says the same few things over and over, especially his lazy day, don't feel like working remark about Obama getting Osama (Note the similarity in the names BTW). Respond if you want, but just be aware that he's playing us as much as Obama plays his devoted base.

LOL, what is this, your Public Service Announcement? And then with the,“ATTENTION! ATTENTION! What – are you talking into a PA system? LOL, WOW!

Topix should at least insist that he change his message now and then. The present loop he's on is getting boring.
The pathetically sad part is that you are warning people about your delusional fantasies about me, and yet you are too obsessed to just ignore what I post…

Maybe you should find the closes interstate highway and dash out into traffic waving your arms frantically warning people about what I post on here… good luck.

We ALL know your opinions.
Some of us just don't share your Dreams for a dramatically devalued, broken, bankrupt future for our kids. Otherwise, we would be Obama voters like you.

Is that what these tea-bagging right-wingers are trying to claim after they go on these killing sprees like the one in Tucson and in Aurora? These crazy bastard need to be put down immediately before another one can cowardly kill any more innocent people.
The Tucson, Aurora and Ft Hood shooter are all left wing nutcases. The liberal Tucson shooter was a stalker groupie of Gabbie Gifford, the liberal Aurora shooter was a member of the Occupy movement and loved big lib Hollyweird movies and the liberal Ft Hood shooter was anti American, pro-Muslim just like Obama.

The Insanity Defense is of a Criminal Justice system that bends over backwards and coddles the criminal while Justice is Denied to the victims of those crimes as much by the system as those whom caused their suffering.

False, dishonest, and corrupt on all counts, just as we'd have expected from a reTHUGlican nutjob and propaganda farter.

If lying were illegal, you'd be doing life in prison. Which would be OK with me...:)

That WAS disturbing, I admit. I have no problem with caging this animal, either. A small cage. With no exit.

It's a long-accepted part of the concept of Western justice that those who are insane are not fully responsible for their actions. That does NOT make them innocent.

It's not the fault of the system that some abuse it to try to get their clients off. Go get a job as a prosecutor and fight the system if it upset you so much.

Just heard Romney try to sing on that sickening Obama ad.

The Hateful Ad proves Romney can't sing and Obama is a lousy excuse for a man and a failure as a President........

Who should we vote for to be President??? Should we go for a Proven Failure or elect Romney???

Obama's largely succeeded as President, Romney's the failure. Elect him if you want, but don't blame us for your dumb mistake! LOL
