Obama needs to try to heal the divide in this nation,...IF he really cares about it.
But but but but.....

Republicans caused the divide!

President Obama: "there are no red States and no blue States, we are THE UNITED STATES!"

that was said BEFORE his win in 2008!

Republicans decided BEFORE he took office to stone wall, not work for the best of the country and to make Obama a one term president.

Well that was dumb!

Obama won. Senate won. Dems won.

CONGRATULATIONS!

DEMOCRATS: our doors are always open, let's make a deal to make our country better: taxes higher on rich incomes. Forget Grover! Work for the people.

Besides, to imply that Jesus would not uphold the moral law of God because that would make him pharisaical ignores the fact that Jesus said he didn’t come to abolish God’s law, but to fulfill it (see Matt. 5:7, 17). And if that weren’t enough, Jesus said that our righteousness must be greater than that of the Pharisees if we are to enter the kingdom of heaven (Matt. 5:20). The context of this passage demonstrates that Jesus’ use of righteousness is based on upholding the law, which has to do with what he taught from Matthew 5:21-7:29 regarding obeying that law from the heart and not merely with outward form and rituals.
In Dillon’s use of the woman caught in adultery, what he failed to note is that Jesus not only forgave her but also told her to “go and sin no more”(John 8:11). I suppose Jesus was a narrow-minded, self-righteous Pharisee, huh?
Liberal Economics
Second, Dillon says that conservative Christians are “dogmatic, anti-poor, pro-war” and shouldn’t even call themselves Christians. Yep, the same guy ranting about dogmatism one minute ago actually says that not following his own reflections on Jesus makes the Christian Right, er, un-Christian. Let that one sink in for a minute.
Back in the real world, under Barack Obama’s presidency there are now more people on food stamps than ever before, the unemployment rate is higher today than when he took office, the employment participation rate is lower and the poverty rate is soaring. And in the black community, unemployment remains double the national average, towering at a staggering 14.3 percent.
Is this the Rev. Dillon’s idea of eradicating poverty—by creating millions more poor people?
Bottom line: Barack Obama’s policies are a disaster by every economic metric.
Dillon should also cut back the lectures on “war,” seeing that this president ramped up drone kills, aided military strikes in Libya and continues a war in Afghanistan for no good reason.
A Biblical President?
Third, Dillon argues that Barack Obama quotes the Bible often—a “religious pioneer” if you will. Mitt Romney, however, is a professed Mormon. Enough said, we’re told. So let’s see how our noted theological president sold same-sex marriage to ABC News:“[Michelle and I] both practicing Christians and obviously this position may be considered to put us at odds with the views of others but, you know, when we think about our faith, the thing at root that we think about is, not only Christ sacrificing Himself on our behalf, but it's also the Golden Rule, you know, treat others the way you would want to be treated.”
Who knew, Jesus Christ was the first same-sex marriage advocate.
Obama’s also extreme on abortion. He favors it in every single trimester (partial-birth abortion, too) and even opposed the “Born Alive Infant Protection Act,” which was a law granting rights to babies of botched abortions in Chicago.

Yep, the superPACs made the scene again, but it isn't "what's fair is fair", it's "what's unfair was countered with unfair". We weren't in the dark ages before the Supreme Court ruling created a hideous mockery of honest campaign finance, but there's no guarantee we can't return to workhouses and poor farms.
Really, yo did NOT just use "honest" and "campaign finance" in the same sentence?

We have a president who ran a small and negative campaign with no record to run on, no plan for the next four years but big on lies and smearing his opponent.
We have a president who does not reach across the aisle, characterizes half the nation as being un-American, encourages his base to vote out of revenge and hides from the press.
We have a president who believes he can spend our way out of an already insurmountable debt, who wants as many people dependent on taxpayers as possible and taking even more of our money come January 1.
We have a president who promised to be more flexible with Russia, who doesn't call radical Islam terrorists and who sees Europe's crumbling social democracy system as the model for this nation.
We have a president who will continue to conquer and divide, who warms up to celebrities and elitists but thinks job makers are the real problem.
The easily fooled and haters voted this president back into office. Because of them, we have turned the corner and are on a path from which we may never recover.
Because of them, we will have four more years of high unemployment, gridlock and, eventually, a third world health system.
Because of them, more manufacturers will leave this country, more hardworking people will lose their incentive to try and do better and more job opportunities will become a thing of the past.
Because of them, I don't recognize my country any longer.
For now, the rest of us can only go on with our lives, hope for the best, expect the worst and try to survive another four years.
I truly believe God has washed his hands of us. Many who reelected this president voted Him out of their party.
We have lost our bearings and, therefore, we cannot expect to be blessed.
So basically I'm done. I'm taking my purse and going home.
But we will reap what we have sown. That's the law of nature mandated by God.
Perhaps it has already begun. We will know soon enough. I hope those on the left will not live to regret what they have done because what they have done will affect us all.
Later.
Guess you'll have to go eat worms!

Hopefully they are either hiding in a bunker or off to a "whiter" Canada.

When they start hoarding guns and ammo the price will go through the roof again like four years ago.

[QUOTE who="Fox News. "]<quoted text>
You seem conflicted.
Turn on your local fox station and they will reprogram you.[/QUOTE]

Sorry, YOU are the people who are Fox obsessed, not me. Honestly, it will be funnier to watch MSNBC and listen to NPR explain away how Obama will continue the "transformation" as those 2 1/2 trillions abroad will remain there and all the evil rich you people hate so much (i. e. the job creators) throw in the towel, cash out the stocks and move to the Caymans.

So Please tell me what you are gloating so much over, why you want to destroy anyone oppose to your lazy agenda and especially how you think the lazy majority can continue to expect others to pay for them.

Finally, the federal reserve is on the ropes. Once that happens, good luck trying to solve the problem by raising more taxes, prining more money or voting for another unfunded mandate upon the states.

Enjoy your party now, but why do you have to be so angry at the losers? I thought you liberals would be happy now as you "won"?

Uncle Allen is already crying that he was cheated out of his House Seat by 'communists'!!

The guy is crazier than earlier thought.

Meanwhile, Grayson goes back to DC!!

I'm lovin' it!!

The Party of hate, anti-gay, anti-women, anti-minority, lost by wide margins among all groups.

A strong message has been delivered.

Trump has been spotted on the edge of the roof of Trump Towers.

FAUX is whining.

Claims Obama has no mandate.

He won the Electoral College by 100 votes, he won the popular vote!!

Bush lost the popular vote in 2000, barely won the electoral vote.

Funny how they have different measurements depending on which side wins!!

We're not full of hate. We're just tired of supporting all the ghetto-rat freeloaders while our taxes just keep going up and up and up.
