Now, predicting 12 million jobs over the next four years is not a particularly dangerous bet to make, on the part of the Romney campaign, as a number of economists have suggested that this is in line with expectations, including the respected Moody’s Analytics which predicted a few months ago that we would see 12 million new jobs by 2016—no matter who should end up inhabiting the White House.

We must be greatful to Murderdock and Akin for talking about rape everyday and telling women they'd be forced to have a rapists baby.
The women woke up and went and voted Democrat.
I kept telling Carol this; that the American women who fought long and hard for years will not be going back into the back rooms anymore.
18 women in the Senate now! We need more women in politics, not white men who want to live in the 1950's
You helped to reelect a president who has no reservations about killing a baby coming out of the birth canal by sticking scissors in the back of its neck.

And you think two men shooting off their mouth is unforgiveable.

This is exactly why we're screwed.

Nice going there, Sherlock.

OBAMA GOT RE-ELECTED BECAUSE HE WAS THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT, FOR ABORTIONS AND GAY MARRIAGE. LET'S TELL THE TRUTH HERE.. PLEASE!!
LOL! At least you are honest and tell the truth about what your most important issues are.
Carol and the others kept trying to say that it was the economy.
It's not.
It's always about abortion and gay marriage.
Never seizes to amaze me.

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.
Yeah, but at least Megyn Kelly is hot looking. That's all that matters anyway. They're all airheads.

Well why doesn't JUDAS call his pal and tell him to get to work? Is FATSO still pigging out on all that Kobe Steak and champagne he got for all the photo ops and words of praise for TRAITOR IN CHIEF?

Fatso really needs to go on a diet. Michelle Obama will never let him in the White House.

They were running for the Senate; and I am glad they shot of their mouths, they lost, so now they can shoot themselves in the mouth.
Their loss was a victory for women.

<quoted text>You should seek some professional help. I am an ER Physician and can think of no condition that would be allowed to go unchecked(by any Physician I have ever met or heard of) if it was the sole option to save the pregnant mother's life. Those most common being uncontrollable uterine/placental hemorrhaging, eclampsia or uncontrollable high output cardiac failure.
NOT delivering or aborting a fetus as you contend would NEVER be prevented at ANY hospital if deemed by a Physician to be the only viable life saving treatment.
And NOTE: I have in 30 years of practice NEVER had a "Hospital" "tell" me how to save a life,close a wound or treat any case. It is the Physician BTW that determines the type of care/practice of medicine the patient receives, not a right wing hospital!
Don't pay attention to Real Dave. He's just an old Jane Fonda worshipping draft dodger who happens to think people that served honorably in the U.S. Navy are "sissies". His views are insignificant. Just ignore him.

Congratulations Homer. Now a quick look to the future:
Grandkids: "Hey Grandpa Peppy tells about the good old days"
Grandpa Peppy: "Okay kids, gather around the stone fire pit in front of our cave, and I will tell you the story. Many years ago, we were not part of Western China as we are today, this land was called Virginia and was part of the United States of America. Back then you could have learned all of this from history books, but that was before the chinese government burned them all. You see, everything was great until this narcissist named Obama was elected president and proceeded to lead us off a fiscal cliff. Gone are the days of affordable energy and prosperity, but hey, we still have sticks and stones. Just be happy with what you do have."
Good morning Peppy;
That's enough chit chatting, get back out there and remove those Romney signs.
Thanks.
The people have spoken and we now know that even $800 million can't buy an election. We should all be happy, and Citizens United should be overturned and money taken out of politics.

No,the Chinese are our allies in that scenario, Homer saw the original Red Dawn, the one with Patrcik Swazye. Is yours the premise of the remake?

Things to do list:

1. Book that trip to Greece so I can get acclimated to what is yet to come.
2. Move more jobs overseas to avoid the brutal anti-business measures coming down the pipeline.
3. Buy a moped and get ready for $10 per gallon gas.
4. Convert all investments to Chinese stocks.
5. Write a book titled "The day Iran nuked Israel" and be the first to market with a book on this subject.
6. Cancel any and all retirement plans.
7. Create a new household budget based on unemployment wages.
8. Seek out suitable caves for alternate living potential. Beat others in claiming rights to the cave.
