Wrong, lufrank1! Those of us who familiar with the Marxist thugs who are destroying Latin America recognized Obama's kinship with them. Obama's campaign strategy -- based on lies, manipulation and fraud, with overwhelming support from a corrupt media -- was almost identical to the strategies of the Marxist thugs. Even the slogans – CHANGE and YES WE CAN -- were the same.

We did NOT need Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, Coulter or Fox to KNOW that Obama is a U.S. hating Marxist like his parents, his relatives (Odinga), friends, mentors (Bill Ayers), pastors (Jeremy Wright), associates (Robert Creamer), and czars (former Green Jobs Czar Van Jones, FCC Diversity Czar Mark Lloyd, Anita Dunn, etc.).

We do NOT need Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, Coulter or Fox to KNOW that Obama is emulating the Marxist thugs. Using scams like the "help-the-poor" Obamacare scam, Castro transformed an imperfect but happy and prosperous island into a GULAG of abject misery, where the only hope for most is being able to escape.

“Hey, Obama has just nationalized nothing more and nothing less than General Motors. Comrade Obama!” Chavez cheered on Venezuelan TV. He added that he and Cuba’s Fidel Castro would now have to work harder just to keep up.

Fortunately, Americans are waking up and will defend themselves from the cancer of Marxism and Marxist scams like Obamacare by voting for honest Patriots like Sharron Angle.

Wrong!!! AntonioSosa:

Ultra-Conservative wingbats don't have enough gray cells to realize that CRAP spewed by Hannity, Beck, Limbaugh, Coulter and Fox Noise IS FULL of DELIBERATE Partisan Lies!

That is a SAD Fact!

Wrong, lufrank1! "Progressives" ARE Marxists, communists, socialists, or whatever you want to call those who believe in the government taking over and controlling everything.

"Progressives" are also experts at lying, manipulating and demonizing. Just watch what they are doing with Sharron Angle.

In the Orwellian language of progressives -- in which good is evil, sin is virtue,
left is right, war is peace -- they choose words to MANIPULATE people.

"Progressivism" has NOTHING to do with real progress. On the contrary, it has to do with corruption, poverty and despair, which reigns in any country being destroyed by a "progressive." Just look at Cuba!

If progressives are against Sharron Angle, we'll certainly vote for her.

AntonioSosa:

“. . .progressives (Marxists) demonizing . .”

Please don’t confuse progressives with Marxists or demonizers like the Tea Party, Beck and Fox Noise trash! A progressive is one who moves forward, a GOP type ultra-conservative is one who stagnates in his or her corporate slave master’s outhouse.

carbonhog, you are right. Regarding the media, Angle was being TRUTHFUL. Of course Angle would like to be asked the questions she would like to answer! Who wouldn't? Saying otherwise would be a LIE!

But progressives(Marxists) and their lemmings live in an Orwellian world of their own making, and they can't handle an obviously truthful statement.

As they are twisting and ridiculing everything she says, they jumped on Angle like a pack of wild dogs in a feeding frenzy to see who could destroy her more because of that statement!

The more progressives demonize Angle, the more support she deserves.

Many of us did not know about Angle until we saw progressives (Marxists) demonizing her with the frenzy of wild dogs! That piqued our interest. When we considered what she's REALLY saying and WHY she’s saying it, we couldn't admire her more.

Only the uninformed and brainwashed believe the propaganda of progressives. Informed Americans understand that, if progressives demonize someone, that someone is likely to be good for the people and the country.

Additionally, when you consider that thanks to Reid and his comrades:

-- Nevada's UNEMPLOYMENT is 14.2%, highest in the nation.
-- Every third house in Las Vegas is in FORECLOSURE
-- Nevada is dead last in almost every category

Nevadans want JOBS, the jobs that Reid has helped Obama kill, not government handouts!

When you consider the whole picture, it turns out Angle is great for Nevada and great for the U.S.!

Ann or Tom bet you are really proud of your fan lufrank

Once again, Anne "Speaking Truth to Power" Telnaes demonstrates that she is an untalented partisan hack who is incapable of commenting on Democrats, even though they are the ones running the country.

Can't the Post fire Toles or Telnaes and replace them with an independent? Lord knows they are too insecure to hire a conservative.

Great Cartoon.
Provides evidence of the NEED for abortions.
In the subject's case . . . somebody goofed.

What's up with Sharon Angle?

Who does she think she is? George W. Bush?

I think your Ms. Angle audio clip was actually an honest remark, as she sees it. That tea-birther "movement" was spawned, fed and indulged by certain media elements - why wouldn't she assume all media were friendly?

It's possible she is not a very sophisticated person.

Ann, you got it right again.

She's just trying to get the same treatment all the democrats get from the Washington Post and other liberal media outlets. So what's wrong with that? Just look there was a Gallop poll out yesterday showing President Obama's approval rating at 41% the lowest since he has been in office. But, will you read about it in the Washington Post? No.

The Democrats have Pelosi? The Republicans could have Sharon Angle. And Ann makes an issue out of how the Taliban dresses and treats it's women. Maybe all of them are like her.

Seriously Ann have you ever thought about animating all of our Legislatures as Bobble Heads. I think government and politics has become nothing more than an animated cartoon in America. When I watch C Span I expect to see Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd jump out into the isles and declare we're all done for. That's all folks!
