Bill Clinton looks like sht__death warmed over. Shrub aged dramatically and looks sickly__Laura still looks healthy though even though she still goes through a carton of Marlboro's weekly. Obama too has aged dramatically.
I'm convinced that the presidency would have killed or disabled McCain during his first term leaving us with an idiot staring at the red phone__and while in good health I'm pretty sure Mitt would have struggled with the workload.
Both parties should guard their best candidates until as late as possible___the internet has changed everything.
Biden ran with McCain?

The worst recession in 80 years, a near financial meltdown, a housing collapse in the midst of two quagmire wars had nothing to do with it.

It was all because Obama was elected.

Because they knew he would be so bad for investors.

In fact, he was so bad to stopped the market slide & what is it now?

A majority of Americans think it is bad for the country that Republicans control the House of Representatives, and even more want House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to be replaced by another Republican, according to a CNN/ORC International poll released Monday.

Fifty-four percent think it's bad that Republicans control the House, the poll found. That's up from 43 percent in December 2012, during the last fiscal standoff. The figure is the first time a majority thought Republican control was bad for the country since CNN started asking in December 2010. Sixty-three percent of respondents want Boehner replaced, but by another Republican, which would not change GOP control of the House.

The poll is yet another sign that the government shutdown has hurt the Republican party. An NBC/WSJ poll taken during the shutdown showed that 24 percent of people approved of the party, a record low. Gallup measured another record low for the GOP, with 28 percent approving. A poll released Sunday funded by Moveon.org and conducted by the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling showed that incumbent Republicans trailed generic Democrats in 15 of 25 competitive House districts.

Congress as a whole has a measly 12 percent approval rating, while 86 percent disapprove, according to the CNN/ORC International poll. President Barack Obama received a 44 percent approval rating, while 52 percent said they disapprove -- a number virtually unchanged since June. Forty-four percent are more confident that Obama can handle problems facing the U.S., versus 31 percent who said they think Republicans can. Twenty-one percent said they were confident in neither.

Reagan was a putz__you're a moron.
If anything, the ability to be forewarned and to prepare for a plethora of situations makes it easier. Like you say, not many surprises.

You really need to dampen your name-calling, especially since you're giving your opinion, nothing more.

Triumphant President Takes Victory Lap Over Huge Obamacare Success
Guy Benson
President Obama addressed the nation in the Rose Garden this afternoon to discuss the Affordable Care Act. The address was more "pep rally" than anything else, as Townhall's Guy Benson reports:
Yes, really. As you read this morning, I was expecting a some perfunctory contrition and token acceptance of responsibility from President Bystander during his Obamacare remarks in the Rose Garden today. I was wrong. The appearance was more of a pep rally, replete with upbeat promises and applauding supporters. Aides might as well have hung a large "mission accomplished" banner over Obama's head. The fact that the Obamacare websites -- a core element of the law functioning -- are in total shambles and won't be fixed for many weeks or even months were all but shrugged off as an afterthought. Be sure to stick with this clip through the very end, when one of Obama's human props actually faints right behind him. Not to worry, Obama told consumers, the law is "working well," and in some cases, even better than expected. He spent much of the speech insisting that the product itself is just fantastic. Rates are lower. Costs are down. Coverage is better. The system is "smoother" than ever. He used isolated anecdotes to "prove" these points, ignoring buckets of empirical evidence to the contrary. For good measure, he also blamed Republicans and the recent government shutdown for some of the glitches -- totally false red herrings. He emphasized that if you're one of the few (!) people who've had trouble signing up online, you're free to simply dial a 1-800 number for assistance. Thus, the President of the United States was reduced to acting as a ShamWow pitch man. Except ShamWow's phone system, um, isn't broken:
Guy Benson??? ROFLMAO

Got any words of wisdom from David Duke? Ted Nugent?

Racism is abnormality.

Here's a fact anyone who deals with copyrighted software knows:
The problems with the software Obama stole for his ObamaKare site can only be fixed by the people Obama stole the software from. They are the only people who know where all the software bombs are, put there to sabotage any thief like Obama who steals their software.
Every bit of money spent trying to fix the problem is wasted. It can never be fixed. Obama has to go to the people he stole the software from to fix the problem.

Keep thrashing those RINOs! Teabaggers have ZERO national support. Democrats concede pockets of inbred racist morons will support some of your airheads. In fact Democrats will cross over and vote for these losers in primaries.
Now you're even obstructing your own Republican party!!!!

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) doesn't want another government shutdown, but Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is already egging on the next one. A power battle brewing between the two senators is growing personal ahead of the next critical deadline.

Federal government funding expires again on Jan. 15 and the two influential senators are already on a collision course after Cruz's quixotic push to defund Obamacare fell flat in the recent budget debacle and badly damaged the GOP's standing before the party surrendered.

"There will not be another government shutdown," McConnell said Sunday. "You can count on that."

Ok. Let's just look at the facts and give Obama his due credit.
Obama stole the software for ObamaKare, and stole the 100 million dollars we gave to him to write the software he stole, and now he needs another 100 million dollars to fix the software because he stole it from people who aren't as stupid as him.
Did I get all of that right?
This is one of your best conspiracies yet. You're accussing Obama of sabotaging Obamacare!
You just unseated Eman for the "dumbest post of the day" award.

Teach a man to fish...
or you can teach that man to call people racists...

On the Tea Party...

"John McWhorter of Columbia University made the brilliant observation that “the idea that ‘racism’ is behind the Tea Partiers is based on a lazy and vain extension of the term ‘racism’ to meaning ‘that which many black people would not approve of.’"
