Nothing anybody can say could derogate Obamacare more than it has derogated itself.

Babykilling lives on in Albuequerque. Gov. Martinez, ostensible prolife Catholic, failed to weigh in on this issue, which could have helped persuade the latino community in re the vote. This is important, bc it serves to derogate her prolife credentials by indicating her lack of commitment to the prolife cause. Just saying you are prolife and not doing anything doesn't cut it. This should be remembered when they try to promote her in 2016.

The only way Obama/Clinton can be used in the same sentence as George Washington is by pointing out the contrast, as you did.

yesterday, Jake Tapper was asking Chuck Grassley about his blocking of Obama’s DC Circuit appointment. Chuck did a fantastic job answering him, never faltered and had every fact at the ready. Grassley blocked Bush’s appointee to the DC cir as well. At that time, SENATOR Obama drafted a letter saying that the DC cir workload did not merit filling the seat. The seat was blocked. Now the workload is even less, as described by current members of the DC Cir, and Grassley again wants to NOT fill the seat for that reason, and I see David Axelroad bleating on Twitter that this blockade is a horrific precendent which will haunt the GOP and the country. um, not a precedent, Davey, your guy did it before and one of the reasons given to not fill it with Bush’s appointee was that it would upset the balance [it was even up dem-pub] oh but NOW upsetting the balance is precisely what they are after.

I can’t believe some people have so little in their lives that they must derogate Tide Pods and the users thereof.

i was there with you and frankly don’t get it. there have ALWAYS been toxic substances that kids may have mistaken for candy etc. the answer is for parents to childproof and keep that stuff away from kids, not to send us back to the dark ages and deprive us of convenience. i have actually met and like that poster, so i was surprised by the tone and vehemence on that thread.

A rarely used over-max grade for
coming up with the obscure Al Derogatis.

“Dero” worked famously with Marty Glickman (whom,
without bragging too much, I can imitate perfectly)
and could predict the upcoming play with such fantastic
accuracy that there were rumors that he was being signaled
by the Giants’ bench in advance.

Despite being derogated mercilessly and unjustly by liberals for the last several years, W demonstrates that he is still more presidential and classy than zero will ever be.

American’s yearn to vent
dropped O to 37%.
Comedians do derogate
the president’s Obamagate
while we all wail a lament.

37% approval ratings have O on the defense. A small token for those of us who have been in pain for all these years.

With each press gaggle given
It seems that Carney’s goal
Is further derogated by
His rush to damage control

It isn’t even well thought out-
But with no resolution in sight
Obamacare will not go gently
Into a well-deserved goodnight

Thieves can hack the website-
But if you can get in some way
To choose overpriced insurance
You’ll find no place to pay...

seriously i was unaware of the amount of HATRED for the POD. who in the world wants to * around with pouring liquid or powder, when you can drop a pre-measured pod into the washer? it’s a godsend for anyone sending a kid off to college to do their laundry for the first time in their lives. i am willing to PAY for convenience, if you don’t want convenience then you can feel free to get your bar of fels naptha soap and washboard and go out back to the dang creek to wash clothes!!

Barry’s b.s. to the press while tiptoeing
along the line of telling outright lies.
