Poorassed way to try to rub it in . "America didn't vote for Obama ,they voted against Republicans "
They sure as hell voted for Obama . All the black and brown race did . When asked why, the young-uns said , now I can go to college just like Obama did . The 47% that wouldn't vote for Romney were in the 59 polling places in Philly that didn't give Romney one vote. Methinks a little stretch in voting .
That school thing with Obama may be why his application for a job and Harvard would have been enhanced by listing his birthplace as Kenya.
What percentage of Black and brown normally vote for the Dem Party? After that you might have a point. On the other hand, how many white people normally vote the Republican Party? The reverse is just as apt to be true.

Secession Petitions from 20 States
If 25,000 people sign the petition by Dec. 7, it will “require a response” from the Obama administration, according to published rules of the White House’s online “We the People” program.
https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petitions
Sign for your states people
The first response should be to immediately stop all federal money flowing into those states until the states decide what they want to do. Why pour money into someone leaving?

There is no proof that Reagan knew Ollie North and an Admiral were working the Iran Contra thing from the basement of the White House .
It isn't like the CIC would walk to the basement to make sure all the lights were turned out and the furnace was working properly ?
Unless of course you ask Oliver North..

Not of their choice to pay income taxes either, but how many of them bother to sign up for food stamps?

Paying taxes does not mean they have to sign up to be leeches, that is their choice.

Thank heavens that the President is finally going to break away from the golf course to give a press conference. Now we will be able to get the answers we've been seeking concerning Benghazi and the messy Petraeus affair. I'm sure he'll be able to clear up all the confusion. This is, after all, the most transparent administration ever.

When you whine about raising taxes, remember that would be on $250,000 and above. And it looks like a few % points is all.

Remember: It's not "raising taxes" it's raising takes on $250K and above. Got it?

I don't care much about reducing spending. Certainly not until the economy is back in full swing.

Obama will be the sponge boy to clean up the spillage that is still dripping from the dipstick called Benghazi . This was to be all cleaned up before the TV station put the Book (All In) on Paula's TV appearence

We need more guys like Ollie North . Time has failed me to remember all the details of Iran Contra. I do remember the pilot of the plane that crashed in Central America and he escaped the crash unharmed . Can't say I recall what was in the cargo of the plane but he had a note with a phone number on it and handed it to his captors ? HELLOOO this is the White House ?

Ollie was a young tough Marine and his testosterone level was All IN the secretary he was railing in between Contra deals .

I agree with Joe, keep spending where it is or even increase it. That works a lot better than reducing taxes. bush reduced taxes and we got this mess. Imagine how good the economy would be if bush had just left taxes alone.

Just remember Republicans have so gerrymandered congressional districts in states where they controlled redistricting the past two years that they were able to elude a popular vote that went the Democrats’ way in just about every way last week.
