    The DNC controlled lame-stream and the nutcase network MSNBC haven't worked themseles into something so petty as N.J. traffic since they desperatley tried to paint and parrot in unison that Paul Ryan was a "liar" merely because he didn't remember his 25 years old marathon time to the minute. This is the same biggoted lame-stream that sent hundreds of reporters to tiny Wasila Alaska to pliage tras cans, harrass neighbors and librarians and then stalk Palin's family. They couldn't come up with anything so they all parroted in unison that Palin was "stupid" because Russia can be seen from a portion of Alaska. Other than FOX we have no investigative news media, instead of propping up the extremely deficient Obama, the out-of-cotrol sexual predetor Clinon and the corrupt Hilary and instead vetted and publized it, we would have never been stuck with these dogs.

    This guy was supposedly the number one GOP contender(?) and he never had a prayer. The quality representation such as it is, goes downhill from there. Sorry, I'm going to repeat what I said before the last presidential election (check the results). Republican candidates, you should just stay home and have compassion for your misinformed constituency. They could donate their dollars to a worthwhile cause.

    Guess what your column will be plastered with tomorrow, video clips of Hillary being evil. One set of stuff I can't find is where early on I think Hillary was working with a female partner, for the CIA maybe refurbishing and selling helicopters to the Contras????? anyway some Federal prosecutor in some Northwest State found out and there was some dispute going on and he ended up dead.....This is only if I remember correctly, I may be wrong about this one.....Bushes Clintons, Obama are all working for the evil people.
