Are you saying any other labelduhm label cannot possibly accept people as they are--as in NOT based on race, creed (you forgot creed!) gender, class or personal preferences of ANY sort (as voting, foods, hair color, partnering etc)?

People that only want to twist, distort bait and divide with that type of stuff-ARE the antagonizers!

As if political track records are those of any sort of "moral virute" category.

Spare us more stupidity and stick to REAL issues. God knows, there's plenty enough of them!

For every job his stimulus created, it cost the taxpayers $278,000 per job. Not exactly the kind of job stimulus we were anticipating. These people weren't making $278,000 but Obama somehow created a unique class of 1%'ers - for taxpayers.
So basically, his stimulus failed and, right behind it, Obamacare made sure the job crisis continued and served as a catalyst for a stagnant and snail-crawling slow recovery of the economy.
It's a no-win combination for Obama any way you look at it.
House Speaker John Boehner says Obama's economists figure stimulus cost at $278,000 per job

False.

http://www.politifact.com/ohio/statements/201...

The White House points out that Recovery Act dollars didn’t just fund salaries - as the blog item implies - it also funded numerous capital improvements and infrastructure projects.

Lumping all costs together and classifying it as salaries produces an inflated figure.

Lie alert!

So if a bridge is built for $50 million,

You know: to bring customers and employees to a business,

The whole $50 million is spent only on labor costs?

That is what you said!

WOW. You amaze me. You're angry over two bums talkin shit at 7/11. And you're admitting that a republican congress has been blocking progress in Washington, and yes he's mixed but you talk about him like he is black. Ignorant people usually aren't articulate enough to hide their hate or bigotry. The country is falling because of racist, sexist and bias pricks who become the biggest blamers. The time you spend exploiting Illinois you could be helping or volunteering. the oppositing of love is not caring.

Stupid is as stupid does.

I wouldn't even begin to speculate what another was (or wasn't) saying. Unless I heard it with mine own ears.

(and I'll withhold comment on that name dropping crap-simply because at this point, I feel sorry for the guy. Housing bubble experiences do not exactly equate out to great military and security expereience now, do they.)

But hey...if you want to opt for trained chefs, to do the engineering of bridges, that's certainly your choice!

Jimmy John's founder and CEO: Obamacare will add $0.50 to the cost of each sandwich even after we cut all employees to 28 hours. To stay competitive we will have to do what every other company is doing. Cutting all our employees to 28 hours. We will become a country of part timers. Thanks libtards!!!
not only that, Jimmy John's is leaving O'bama's home state of Illinois. They are moving the corporate headquaters out. He said he didn't mind paying taxes-he is just tired of the way the liberals in Illinois puke it down the toilet. No one in Illinois should be voting for O'bama. They are the state that have no idea what tax cut O'bama is talking about-you know the one he said he gave to the middle class? At the same time the state of Illinois (legislature controlled by democrats for 35 years) raised personal income tax by 66%. Coincidence?

Sadly the next president may be decided by people that are swayed by how one of them performs at a town hall meeting and not:

1. Which party took a budget surplus and turned it into a depression.
2. Which party led us into an unprovoked and unpaid for war and is looking for another chance to do the same thing.
3. Which party wants less regulation on businesses that helped us into the ditch.
4. Which party wants more regulation on women's bodies.
5. Which party will demolish Social Security.
6. Which party believes the emergency room = health care.
7. Which party wants more tax breaks for the wealthy.
8. Which party thinks government should prevent people from choosing who they can marry.
9. Which party thinks 47% of the people in this country are leeches.
10. Which party believes government should be used as a tool to impose religious dogma.

I could go on but the people that are reading this already knew these things and the people that might be influenced by the "performance" of the debaters rather than their policies probably stopped reading this a long time ago.

That race card whine is pathetic--and is no longer acceptable as an excuse.

Please try and learn to vote based on PRINCIPLES-NOT race, creed or colors!!!
