I get it.

So adding 60 billion in revenue doesn't lower the debt?

I have news, sparky. It would lower the debt a lot more than ending funding to Planned Parenthood & PBS.

You people got your asses kicked yesterday & are as dumb as ever.

It's called H I S T O R Y. You morons like to try to rewrite it but it won't work.
Looking for others to blame.....who does this better than anyone else? Let's see, Obama has blamed Bush for 4 years for everything that is wrong with his presedencyand he blamed a video for the deaths in benghazi, Yes Obama is a champ at the blame-game.

The Americans who voted for Obama and suffer, they deserve it this time.
I'm actually happy because the outcome benefited me in a neat way, but I know the Democrats are not good stewards of our kids in many ways.
Congrats libtards!

Why was it blamed on a video?
It doesn't matter what it was initially blamed on nitwit! The CIA timeline shows that reinforcements were sent but the nature of the attack was such that it didn't really matter.
Did you hear? We won! You lost! You suck!
You're an idiot!

Does anyone really think Fox News is fair and balanced? I really wonder if some of them aren't shills for the libs and Obama and traitors like most of the rest.

O'Reilly makes me sick. He seems to think he's hot stuff but he is nothing but a pompous asshole who has appeared on "The View" and is constantly bragging about his wealth and selling his books.

Can't stand Megyn Kelly and that other blonde bimbo. Greta Von Susteran says "pulbican" rather than "Republican" and but seems to be about the only one who has done some investigative journalism.

Hannity is the best one imo but Fox needs to get rid of Juan Williams and that fat Democratic guy who wears suspenders who is on with that group in the afternoon. The blonde who was Bush's press secretary is very good btw and I'd like to see her have her own show. She is usually professional and seems very quick and intelligent and really is a classy lady who reminds me of Grace Kelly.

She makes Megyn Kelly and all the rest look like pure trash.

To the rest of the world, the United States is a very odd place. The idea that the modern Republican Party, which is so clearly focussed on establishing a regime which privileges only the super-wealthy (and then only in the short-term), can attract half the popular vote is extraordinary. Of course, it does so by pretending that its "tax cuts for the wealthy" mantra actually has benefits for the middle- and working-classes (and we've seen how well those "neo-liberal" policies work out). If that doesn't work, it simply encourages victims of neo-liberalism to direct their anger sideways at other disadvantaged people: immigrants, refugees, homeless people, etc. The same thing happens in my country, Australia, of course, but Australia is not so deeply divided along class boundaries as the United States, in part because its population has not been victimised by as much of the destructive neo-liberal program as its trans-Pacific friends. Those of us looking in from the outside shake our heads and wonder that the United States -- the "land of the free and the home of the brave" -- is so rapidly forsaking the Enlightenment and the Western world's faith in the scientific method and reasoned debate that a major political party can be overtaken by cranks and kooks who believe that it's God's will that gay people not marry and that women not have abortions, and that these issues are more pressing than overcoming disadvantage, inequality and environmental catastrophe. How anybody -- not least half the voting population -- could conceive of voting for the Republican Party in its present guise is a mysterious, horrific shame.

So tell me, what has Obama done for the people in NY?
Poor Nobraina.

Still fighting the battle that his side lost!!

Accoring To Governor Cuomo and Mayor Bloomberg, Obama has been a tremendous partner, clearing red tape and getting the Federal Government in motion.

But then, they're Democrats.

Of course, Gov. Christie said th esame thing. He might be in for a Cabinet Post!!

Meanwhile, you remain a loser, in every sense of the word.

Can't follow along too good?
He said all the people worth over one million had combined wealth of $120 billion.
I showed that the top 400 people alone are worth $1.7 TRILLION.
all people worth at least one million: own a net worth many many TRILLIONS!
The top 20% control 85% of the wealth.
The wealth of all households(PEOPLE):$44 TRILLION.
so just the top 20% control $37.4 TRILLION.
The bottom 80%$6.6 TRILLION.
THE USA IS NOT BANKRUPT!
just dumb right wingers lying.
The rich can afford a small tax increase: 4%.

Yep.

People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.

You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.

They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.

Who died and made you GOD, freak? And since when does GOD need you to fight his battles?

Fundies always eventually get to the threats.
Always.

Seems to me, if God didn't want abortions, He wouldn't be the world's busiest abortionist.

You really ought to familiarize yourself with the tenets and realities of your own religion.
