Awwwwwww, you're just angry because you're a loser.

But, look on the bright side. The Republican in Congress will
have four more years to keep on sabotaging America.

No one should feel so proud. This Country is in bad shape. If you live in this Country and want obama to continue ruining it, you can explain it to your children when thay have nothing to live for. Way ta go guys...

Sometimes gridlock is a good thing.

Republicans keep the house, Dems keep the Senate, and Obama, the weakened "leader", reads another canned speech off his teleprompter..which I won't listen to because it will be the same BS we always hear from the shyster in chief.

To paraphrase Barack Obama's spiritual leader, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Obama's "chickens, are coming home, to ROOST!"

I'll take gridlock over a further slide into socialism, any day.

This thread is meant for freedom loving American capitalists. Don your Birkenstocks, get into your Chevy Volt, and take your America hating socialist agenda ideas down to Berkley with your fellow miscreants where they belong.

Market now down by 243 points.

I can hear the retirement money of the working class slowly getting sucked down the drain.

Obama would like nothing more than a total US market collapse to further his utopian socialist agenda.

Oh boy - 4 more years of the idiot in charge behind the wheel.
Forward it is, right over the cliff.
When it happens, somebody stop by Lance's house to thank him.
Don't just boo - Get REVENGE (Barrack Obama - 2012)
You have to like the most arrogant, divisive, unqualified "leader" that the US has ever seen. This is war, and the battle shall continue in the spirit of the a-holes in the White House.

If the nation goes over the cliff it will be because of rethug sabotage. They care more about posturing than helping the nation solve its problems. Where are the Eisenhower and Goldwater Republicans? As I recall Goldwater warned the party about the religious nutcases.

There are deeply-held fundamental beliefs on how we get out of this mess and build the economy. I agree with conservatives and you obviously believe "progressives". I say more power to the conservatives to stop "progressive" policies, exactly as you would say more power to the "progressives" if the shoe were on the other foot. So, please give it a rest and at least wait until 2015 before you start electioneering again.

For now, I say we all should hope the shackles of the desire to win re-election will free Obama to be more bi-partisan over the next four years. Only then is there hope we will come out better when he is gone and he may finally have something legacy-worthy, because Obama-care clearly is not and never will be.

I sure hear a lot from the left using the same ol blame someone else game. If Obama still screws up, its your fault. You wanted him, you can have him...

Kindly allow a comment from an outsider looking in---an outsider who has no political bias or personal agenda whatsoever.

Your governments,(feds, states, municipals) to a greater or lesser degree, each have fundamental problems--too little revenue and too much expenditure.
It's that simple.
Every other issue you can name is tied to that fundamental problem.
Now, you folks here sound just like what's being heard from your politicos---back and forth posturing re whose fault it is, blaming one party or another, angry rhetoric (often irrational), yada, yada, yada.
Polarization, gridlock, political and personal attacks are the norms.
Just like your politicos, there is little or no discussion re solutions here.
In the cold light of day, there should be total focus on to two things---(a) Defining the problem, and (b) Reaching consensus on solutions.
Until your politicos (and to a large extent your citizens) reach the point where they can address the fundamental issue (revenues vs expenditures) in terms of compromise--aka what's truly best for the country--you will remain on the slippery slope to fiscal disaster.

Until then, I assure you, the situation will not improve--it will get worse and perhaps much worse, and neither your country nor its citizens deserve that.
So if I were in your shoes, I would be screaming to the rooftops for your politicos--on both sides--to get off their political high horses and get down to work solving the problem, and don't stop until they reach consensus---and do so quickly!

Compromise is the answer, not confrontation.
You folks, and every citizen, should be insisting your politicos be held to account to solve this situation, no matter what their party politics are.
Fighting amongst yourselves isn't the answer.
Whatever happenred to a "Government For The People---etc!!!

Thanks for listening.

You are truly an arrogant, ignorant a-hole.
It must be nice to be able to blame everything on someone else, just like Obama. Look forward to 4 more years of blaming and whining. Do you know how many votes the porch monkey got for his budget? That would be a ZERO. We haven't had a budget since that worthless piece of crap you call a president has been in the WH.
Got news you Obama loving idiot... China pays for 40% of the US budget. We owe them more money than can ever be paid back.
When they forclose, idiot a-holes like you will be the ones to suffer. When your city turns into a riot zone because the government checks are worthless, stop by, and I might have a bullet to spare to put you out of your misery. No, probably not. I would prefer that you starve to death.
