    John McCain: iPads And iPhones Are Made In The U.S.A.

    McCain (R-AZ) on Sunday claimed Apple's iPads and iPhones are made in America.

    This Week host Christiane Amanpour described ABC's efforts to empty a house of all products manufactured outside the U.S., after which McCain touted the Apple products' American-made roots.

    "I would also point out that if you emptied that house there ... if you left a computer there, or an iPad, or an iPhone, those are built in the United States of America," McCain said.

  2. “To leftist intellectuals, it's okay to have a president [Obama] who thinks he visited 57 states, a vice president [Biden] who has claimed that Franklin Roosevelt went on television to calm the people after the stock market crash of 1929 (no TV yet, and Hoover was president), and a Speaker of the House [Pelosi] who has insisted that we must switch from fossil fuels to natural gas (a fossil fuel). All ignorance, error, and mental dullness can be forgiven as long as one subscribes to the political catechism, ‘The government must control all economic activity.’" -- Mark Hendrickson



     
  3. Jesse Jackson Jr. Says: Way Out of the Unemployment Crisis is to Change Constitution So Every Ghetto Kid Gets an iPod and Laptop (Video)

    Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. told Congress last week that the way out of Obama’s record unemployment crisis is to “give each ghetto kid an Ipod and a laptop.”

    Because we all know that the way out of any crisis is to sink more taxpayer money into it.
    Just ask any democrat.

    Two different things. You only get 57 if you do the math on the phrase fragments that Obama was saying out loud. But McCain actually said those items were made in the US, we don't have to take an extra step to arrive at absurdity.

    To rightist non-intellectuals (redundant, I know, LOL) these things are baffling.
     
  5. Are both absurd or just one of them?
     
  6. Can the right ever actually defend their klan by anything other than an attack on a dem?

  9. So you're saying that Biden and Pelosi also get a pass because they're democrats.

     
  10. The discussion began with an attack on a Republican. But, of course, that's okay with you.
