You are back?

WTF do you know?

Here is some "advise" for you!

Tell your republican bosses to own up to borrowing 70% of the national debt.

70% of $16 TRILLION!

WOW!

Now all you blow hards do is cry about cutting vital programs to balance the budgets?

How about raising taxes on rich guys? You gave them all that gov loot since Reagan started it!

GIVE SOME BACK GREEDY AZZZZZHOLE REPUBLICANS!

That was some heart stopping moments watching this new record being made.
Meanwhile, an old rock star is going to have some sort of rally -who cares.
People you have lost the ability to know what is NEWS and if you weren't watching-you really did miss out on the moment.

If the White House has its way, the United States could soon reduce its nuclear arsenal dramatically, possibly even to the point where it would possess fewer atomic bombs than congressmen. And though Republicans on the Hill are already complaining that the plans are "reckless lunacy."

The group headed by Lt Colonel Andy Wood was along the lines of an infantry platoon, armed to the teeth with the latest shyte, some SF and Seal qualified combat vets who don't need permission to pull the trigger. Of course the problem is that they weren't at the consulate at Benghazi were they?

Where the fk were they? It was Sept 11 right? An important date in Islamic terrorist circles.

Romeny did not take a money as salary when he was governor of Mass. He returned the $135,000 salary back to the state. Obama wants to say tax the rich - he got a #12,500 tax return this year. Why don't he pay more taxes? Romeny will win in 2012!!!

It's limping along at a snail's pace. Obama promised unemployment would be below 5% with his stimulus. It only dropped 0.3 points last month after being over 8% for 42 months. Things are going to get much, much worse when Obamacare kicks in. We're already witnessing the consequences now.
How can you ignore this? You seem pretty intelligent.
I too would like to see a faster recovery, but then Rome wasn’t destroyed in a day and can’t be rebuilt in a day. The recovery is, of course, moving along in the right direction and has been since November 2009, less than a year after Obama took office: http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000 .

Rather than ignoring it, I fully acknowledge your conviction that “things are going to get much, much worse when Obamacare kicks in” and “we're already witnessing the consequences now.” However, it is purely unsupported speculation, so I disagree with it especially in view of (1) the fact that the rate of unemployment has been decreasing now for three years and (2) my understanding of the Ryan/Romney budget, which is that it makes no sense because it is unsupported with actual numbers. If the Ryan/Romney budget made sense, I would certainly acknowledge it and proclaim both of them economic recovery superstars.

Which is worse?
You’re offering only two choices? Most situations open a much vaster array of options. It’s not just good guys vs. bad guys, as in traditional cowboy format movies. Most often, the wisest choice is not to jump the gun — to do nothing.

It makes no sense to stir up a hornet’s nest. Nor does it seem wise to try to appease a swarm of angry hornets, but it seems reasonable and perhaps advisable, depending of course on circumstance, to acknowledge when an error has been made.

Obama is constantly reminding us that he inherited the “worst economy since the Great Depression.” But if that is true, history tells us our recovery should be that much stronger.

Yet since the recession ended in the summer of 2009, the U.S. economy has added only 2.6 million new jobs, according to the total civilian non-farm employment monthly survey, even though total employment is still 4 million below the end of 2007.

The seemingly improving unemployment rate, reported Friday at 7.8%, is creeping downward only because millions of Americans are leaving the workforce, too discouraged to look for jobs. The civilian participation rate of potential workers over 16 years of age is down to 63.6%, a level we haven’t seen for decades.

America knows what we can expect from four more years of President Obama. He’ll tell us how terrible Republicans are, but does not give us any reason to hope that things will change for the better.

We must ask, is this the best we can do? With President Obama’s commitment to big-government, big-regulation policies of the left, it is the best he can do. But Americans know we as a country we can do better.

How can you sit there and say that an unemployment rate that has been consistantly above 8%with the exception of the last report which reflects .2% less than 8% 3 years of constant improvement.
You need to go drink some more of that libtard Kool Aide. You are way out of touch with reality so you just might as well take the plunge and immerse yourself in your BS.
First of all, you assume I’m sitting.

Secondly, you assert that I said something that I did not say. What I do say is consistent with the facts presented at http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000 .

Thirdly, and most importantly — congratulations! Your name has earned dishonorable mention on my “do not reply” list of people who prefer, or have only the capacity, to post personal insults in lieu of engaging in reasonable discussion. You may continue to respond to me, but I’ll not respond to you, no matter how strongly you may appeal for me to do so. You may find it easier and just as rewarding just to rate my posts negatively.

G.O.P. Senate Hopes Fade, Even as Romney’s Rise, Polls Show

By NATE SILVER

Mitt Romney has had a pronounced change of fortunes since the first presidential debate in Denver. After trailing President Obama by 4 or 5 points in the polls on Oct. 1 — a position that very few candidates have come back from — he now holds ties or small leads in many national polls and has cut the advantage Mr. Obama had in swing states to a razor-thin margin.

There is little sign, however, that Mr. Romney’s rebound has translated into races for the Senate. Although Republicans have made modest gains in a few Senate races, the polls have been poor for them on the whole. Some races have already gotten away from them, while others are on the verge of being lost.

The FiveThirtyEight forecast model now gives Republicans just about a 16 percent chance of winning control of the Senate. This is a precipitous drop from just two months ago. On Aug. 19, the forecast put their odds at close to 62 percent.
