Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

"Because the Obama economy was so weak all of these years we had just artificially cheap money. Now what's cheap money? Cheap money is when you can borrow at ridiculously low rates. The era of cheap money at some point has to come to an end. The government has artificially, the Fed has artificially kept the price of money down and the price borrowing down and now that's going to come to an end. In many ways it represents; Ashley Webster is the name? In many ways it's a sign of the strength of the economy more than anything else." -- Sean Hannity

So the upswings are Trump's doing, but the downswings during Trump's presidency are Obama's doing.
Seems simple enough. To simpletons like Mr. Sincere Eyebrows and his brow-loving fans.

"Because the Obama economy was so weak all of these years..."

We all know if the letters after the names were reversed, Sean's analysis of the same numbers would be 180 degrees different.

Part of the problem.

I remember when Sean Hannity said he would be waterboarded for charity and donate the proceeds to a veterans group.

He backed out.

Good thing, too. I'm pretty sure you could "break" his weak *** by making him fly coach or ride a public bus across town.

Oh, com'on, look at the source. Hannity only had two choices. One was Obama and the other was Hillary. Hannity is nothing if not predictable.

Obama's second term is over but we're still paying the price for Dubya's stupid wars. His housing bubble collapse is still costing homeowners their homes. Now we have Trump who wants more wars and a bigger collapse of the economy. And you voted for both and are still trying to somehow blame Obama. Laughable.

There's a political scandal based on public corruption that has Donald Trump as it's source.

There are facts to back that, and more arrive every day. Reason supports it. The issue exists despite Party or ideology.

Some people aren't going to admit any of this until the Crisis actually arrives. I figure you have one to twelve weeks. Decide what side you're on.

"More people on this site worship that nice young man Maddow than the creeper Hannity, but what unites all of these people is their sheeplike devotion to their party/ideology regardless of facts or reason."

Some of us can recognize truly intelligent people and also idiots. We can tell the difference, they are not anywhere near equivalent and honest righties would agree with me about Maddow. They might disagree with her politics but wouldn't pretend she isn't intelligent. That just makes you look stupid and You're one I honestly don't think is stupid so why embarrass with stupid comments like that? Let's be clear, Maddow and I opposed the Iraq invasion. Did you? Did Hannity. Nuf said.

Not obama, but rather, The Fed. Between keeping interest rates artificially low for years and QE/QE2, all which drove previous bond investors into the stock market in search of higher returns which drove those investments to overly high PEs. Now that The Fed is raising interest rates and fear of inflation, those same investors are dumping their investments in the market which drives it down]. Now add to that funds computer programs, where their algorithms dictate dumping an investment if it falls a certain amount - the perfect 'fiscal' storm. Many of us knew this was coming and have a good portion in cash to take advantage of the lowering prices [buy low, sell high].

The above is not the only factor, just definitely a major player. The good news is that the economy is doing fine and will continue to grow.

Danni, both Hannity and Maddow, if not intelligent in their own way, are extremely savvy and know what their devoted viewers want/need to hear, which is what makes them successful.

Personally, I think that both of them are the opposite sides of the same coin and as a source of facts are as credible as a bucket of warm spit.

Like it or not, Hannitard was consistent in his insistence that Trump would win the GE from early on, and his devoted and hyper-partisan viewer base grew from that prediction.

'Danni, both Hannity and Maddow, if not intelligent in their own way, are extremely savvy and know what their devoted viewers want/need to hear, which is what makes them successful."

So stupid I can't even cope with it. Hannity appeals to the lowest IQ people out there, Maddow appeals the the higher IQs out there. If you are incapable of recognizing that it is probably because you are a Hannity fan, I already told you who he appeals to. Dumb ass. The desire to stupidly compare them both and pretend they appeal to similar viewers/liseners really says much more about you than them. You probably don't even understand what Maddow is talking about much of the time stupid. Go listen to Sean dumb ass, let's face it, that's where you get your news. To the above average IQ Americans, the name Shawn Hannity mean stupid. Millions of households understand that, if you don't then your are probably part of the segment the rest of us are laughing at, are afraid of. Just so you understand, we do fear your stupidity. Y'all are dangerously stupid, have the right to vote and yes, we fear you. America is in a very bad place because of stupid people like you. You brought us Trump. Like Dubya, you will figure it out, but, as in the case of Dubya, it takes stupid people a long time to figure our that they supported a terrible person for President. Because....you're stupid.

They will never accept the truth about their choices, that really is what is destroying America. I mean, we have another Republican President who wants to start more wars???? And anyone is ok with that????? REally???? Just so you know, if so you are just as stupid as those who supported us invading Iraq. I mean, majorly dumb!

Danni, like I said, you eat up Madcow because that is what you want to hear. Spare me your "anger" and go get comfort from your muse. It is sad because you are no better than the people you deride.

I don't watch either of them because they are both -------- in their own special ways. By all means, however, keep watching Madcow because you are convinced you are somehow special.

Sean Hannity is skeezy in person - hitting on women constantly, even when his wife and kids are at the same events. But, considering what you are meaning is that his ties are evidence of gay liaisons with Trump makes me gag.
