Not speaking for Peppy, but Big Bird doesn't fill up our gas tanks and warm up our homes.

We have a lot of our own oil just sitting under the ground. Obama prefers the Middle Eastern and foreign brands.

Why has this nations debt tripled over the pst four years?
Hell NO we don't want tax increases to pay for other peoples STUPID.
This has been the WORST shape I ever recall this nation being in, not only fiscally wise, but ethics and morality wise.
It's gotten patheTic.
Like it or not OTHER ppl's STUPID is what caused this crisis in the first place. And it was SMART people taking advantage of stupid all of which was set up by the Republicans. They gave the Carte blanche to Wall St and man did they dance with it. If Obama is to blame for anything it's the fact that his administration has not pursued these crims. Maybe this term he will, but in the end this won't pay the debt so everyone has to pay including the rich and that means the same percentage tax across the board once you earn enough.

Huh?

Let me get this straight: economy goes down, gas price higher?

Huh?

Rich pay higher taxes, no jobs?

Huh?

ACA: EVERYONE ON INSURANCE.

economy down?

Huh?

Take an economics course!

Taxes up on rich incomes: jobs, economy booms!

Tax cuts for middle class creates demand: economy booms!

Tax cut for rich: they just hoard it....no demand increase.......
economy crashes! <------ASK BUSH/CHENEY!

SEE!
I try to be nice. And they accuse me of stuff.
Hey look at your dollar bill: nice pyramid on the back.
The top little piece is the richest! The rest of it: everyone else.
The richest like it that way. Especially right wingers.
They use money as power. Buy things and people.
Billions spent on Romney! What a waste.
But the rest of that pyramid votes! We won!
The GOP should never win.....ever.
They are against the people.
Let's keep them out from now on, last night great start.
Real economic power for a country comes from a strong middle. The top just don't buy enough. A bunch of hoarders. They have the most and the country suffers.
Read up on it the middle class is under attack. Jobs off shored by the richest like Romney.
We need to raise taxes on this top group. It's coming.
A republican CEO was on this morning saying the same thing. A tax raise on the rich will not hurt the economy at all. We cut taxes for jobs coming here. Cut taxes on middle class. Raise taxes on already rich incomes. Raise taxes on those off shoring jobs. Raise taxes on imports. They will make it here again.
We won! All this is coming soon! Obama is a genius!
LOL Obama is a genius? Hmm.. really? If he was , why does he have to use a teleprompter, and someone to write what to say for him? The man has no class. Obama has shown us all that at the WH dinner party. All that over being pissed about showing a birth paper? No other President in History acted as lame (showing a kids cartoon of all things), and has shown so much lack of professionuism that it is not only sad, but the man isn't even smart enough to know he wasn't making a fool out of Trump that night, but himself. Do all that than to show a paper from the time people started asking to see it. Obama could have gotten the paper a hell of a lot sooner, shown it, and be done with it. What does he do..show a child's film of his birth. How lame is that?

Obama will go down in History as being the first black as President. The first President to get into office w/o showing a birth paper until AFTER he was in office.The one that made a totlal fool out of himself showing kids films at a fancy dinner party. Oh, and brain washing people to actually think he can do a better job this time around. yeah, as a play gamer, you could him a genius.

Enjoy your 4 years, and you might want to save those Walfare To Work ( not to work )check, buddy.

One of his campaign ads did. Obama did not condemn it even when the cheerleaders hammered his press secretary about it after it was discovered it was a complete lie.
When the cheerleaders get mad, you know it must be pretty bad.
It was done by a Super Pac, not Obama, you know like that lyin' ad about Jeep sending Ohio's jobs to China--except Romney didn't just not condemn, he doubled down on that one, and for a lie, there's hardly ever completion of completeness. "It’s fair to argue that Romney bears some responsibility for the plant’s closing — Bain Capital bought it and loaded it with debt while he was in charge of Bain. But the degree of responsibility is a matter of opinion and debate.
It’s also fair to argue that Mrs. Soptic might have lived longer if she had health coverage. Those who lack it tend to seek treatment later, become sicker, and die earlier than those who have coverage.
We’ll also note that what Romney supporters object to most strenuously about this ad is opinion, not fact. That is Soptic’s apparently heartfelt assertion that “I do not think Mitt Romney is concerned” about what “he’s done.”

I was too harsh with you yesterday.

Without taking back anything that I said about Obama's stance on partial birth abortions, I shouldn't have taken it all out on you.

You just can't seem to help yourself being one of the easily fooled - but I know you wouldn't harm a newborn baby before it even took it's first breath even if you voted for a president who would.

You really are a nutcase. I don't favor oil subsidies. But you love the fact that Obama wasted 50 times more on renewable energy boondoggles. Wasteful spending by the government is a major problem in this country and you liberal nutjobs just don't get it.
