You're running the same stuff we heard in 2009.
Do you wonder why you're repeating the same BS that never came to fruition the first time around??
The whole gun thing is the biggest joke of the bunch.'He just waited until...!" How pathetic is that. But how goes the NRA coffers nowadays? Suckers.
NRA website is strangely silent...not sure i like that.

You helped reelect a president who has no reservations about killing a baby coming out of the birth canal with a pair of scissors stuck in the back of its neck.
Unless, of course, you, too, have no reservations. If so, you and this president are guilty of holding the scissors.
Evidently you have no concerns of a pregnant woman dying because some right wing hospital; refuses to abort the fetus that is killing her.

What we passed up yesterday became very evident in Romney's concession speech.
Not only did he continue to stay upbeat and positive but conservatives in the audience clapped when he said he would continue to pray for the president, his wife and two lovely daughters.
That's what we passed up.
Liberals would have been burning something to the ground.
That's all well and good but the fiscal cliff is coming up in 3 mths or so and that's when compromise is needed. After all for some strange reason the congress is still Republican. While Obama I will grant you is not the best negotiator when dealing with the right, people like the "Boner" guy need start behaving like elected officials to make government work.

And you don't get it with this:
Boehner has made it clear, however, that he intends to stand firm against any income tax increases, which Obama's Democrats contend are essential to any viable deal.

Jobs were sent overseas for one reason and one reason only... GREED! There was a time when the cost of a thing was not so important, but the quality of its manufacture was. The U.S. cannot become isolationists. That has never worked for any lengthy period. But in the same vein, we need to push our elected officials for reciprocal tariffs on imported goods. When our cars go to japan, it takes days for each one to be inspected to make sure it can be used there. If we were to do the same, you would be able to drive across the Pacific in a matter of weeks for the ships backed up to Asia. NAFTA is all well and good, in principal. The reality of it is that the Central and South American countries are benefiting and the U.S. is being glutted with shoddy work and cheap labor. I will be writing to our President again, today, and to my elected state officials to ask that they address these issues. I would urge each person to do the same, whatever your issues are. Change the people in office until they get done what needs to be done!
Though I don't totally agree, you have brought up some good points....and thank you for your service to our country.

Obama was reelected because most Americans believe in freedom.
You believe in using your religious beliefs to take freedos away, based on your Bible.
You've been rejected.
DEal with it, sore loser!!
Obama was re-elected because the ghetto rats and other non-producers want more free stuff.

This election just maintains the status quo. Don't forget we still have trade deficits, the AMT, the debt ceiling - all the things that were on the horizon still are. Let's hope the Republicans can kick the tea partiers to the curb and get on with the job they were elected to do instead of trying to obfuscate and posture to please their fringe components.

Right now this nation doesn't need "unity and togetherness". Save that crap for the Barney Show. What America needs is to block every hairbrained scheme Obama has in store for us during the next four years. This country will be much better off if he gets NOTHING done!

7.5 magnitude earthquake off the coast of Guatemala. Isn't that where many of Obama's gun runners are located? He should probably go down there and coordinate the relief efforts, something he hasn't done for his American disaster victims.

<quoted text>Fox news needs to get rid of Shawn Hannity. Besides being an annoying sonofabitch, nearly everybody he supports ends up losing. He's been on a losing streak since Nancy Pelosi became Speaker of the House.
Megyn Kelly can go too. I am so sick of her loud shrieking and inability to read the news from her teleprompter. She places emphasis on the words like a dumb ass kid learning to read and it is so irritating to listen to when she gets UPSET at what she's READING! Sounds like she's going to have a stroke and she gets on my last nerve! Then the personal idiotic remarks by these females negates anything they've been reporting on!

Megyn is as bad as the other females when it comes to fishing for compliments from the males. Fox News does have more attractive TELEPROMPTER READERS but that is where it ends. Affirmative Action must end and we see every time you turn on the tv!

Bill O'Reilley is another annoying sob who needs to go. He is worse than Donald Trump the way he's always promoting himself btw.
