Hey Petey, how many trips has Mooshelle made in four years on AF2 at far greater cost than $226,072 per trip. You're the idiot.

Boehner has no choice in the matter. His coalition of Tea Turds will obstruct and refuse to cooperate, just like the last fiscal cliff caused by the routine process of raising the debt limit. Crybaby has no control over the Tea Turds. The GOP will be blamed by America for wreaking havoc on our economy by failing to compromise. While they don't tell you this over at FOX, a majority of Americans, including some Republicans believe that adding 3% in additional taxes on incomes over $250,000 is a responsible way to begin paying down our debt, combined with budget cuts.
Furthermore, your Party fails to see the election for what it was, and continues to call hardworking Americans 'takers'. How'd THAT work out for you?
The Tea Party movement was a phenomenon reacting to government becoming more and more out of touch with the people. It should have never been politicized.

It has very little power in the halls of Congress. Boehner acknowledged that already.

Republicans know the fall should be on the Democrat Party, not theirs. I hope they continue with that strategy.

Interesting; I don't know a lot about him, but when these scandals come to light, I always think it may be some sort of set up, a way to get rid of someone. Unless his paramour was privy to state secrets...
Post Partisan by David Ianatius:
Petraeus 15 month tenure as CIA director was short and compared to his rocket like ascent to four star rank in the army,something of a bumpy ride. He was a man who was used to large staff that executed his orders, and what he found at the CIA was something closer to a covert university campus, with experts who behaved as if they had tenure and a culture that prided itself on being contrarian and difficult to manage.
It wasn't an easy fit, within weeks you began to hear grumbling from the CIA's ranks about how Petraeus was trying to put his personal mark on every tree and fire hydrant in sight, asking too many questions and pushing in his annoyingly relentless way for results. Reports are CIA likes a Director who comes up through the ranks.

What's different from last week? A few days? What you probably call "savvy business decisions" or "cause and effect", the majority of rational America recognizes as petty retaliation and a fulfilled promise of voter extortion. Is that what we get from Tea Party "PATRIOTS"? Who would have guessed?

If Boehner doesn't, then the American people will see what your party stands for, once and for all. It'll put on the final touches.
Can you be any more hypocritical or have a more askewed perspective?

If Boehner let's Obama have his way, you won't have anyone to blame anymore and that scares the you-know-what out of you.

Good News!! Corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder, the one who, along with Obama, is responsible for the death of Agent Brian Terry and countless Mexican citizens and who also refused to prosecute Obama's Black Panthers, may be resigning before his past catches up with him.
Bad News. Obama might replace him with corrupt Mass. Governor Deval Patrick, who has more skeletons in his closet than his other choice, Janet Napolitano. America will continue to get beat down under this lame excuse for a president.
uh huh
Get back to us when this rises to the level of GOP stalwarts Alberto Gonzales and Scooter Libby, OK?

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—House Speaker John Boehner today called for an extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for the rich, thus ending a streak of pretending to work with President Obama that lasted forty-eight hours.
“We knew he couldn’t hold out much longer,” said Carol Foyler of Guinness World Records.
“Still, John Boehner pretending to be bipartisan for forty-eight hours is pretty darn impressive,” she said, noting that his previous record stood at twenty minutes.“This is David Blaine territory for him.”
Speaking to reporters, Mr. Boehner downplayed the significance of his record-setting performance, saying merely,“It just feels good being a dick again.”

The tax cuts are for everybody that works. If they aren't extended come Jan. 1 all workers are in for an ass-whoopin' increase of about $2,000 annually for the average family, about $166 per week. Can you afford to lose $166 per week? Oh that's right, it won't affect welfare mammies.

How will your party broaden it's base? Pretend to like the Latinos now? Pretend to care about womens rights? Drop the rape and anti abortion and anti gay marriage stances?
Let's see this horse and pony show.
I've seen firsthand lately how the right plans to broaden its base. Read any of Carol's recent posts? Single women and minority voters are all 'takers', too irresponsible and stupid to understand the real issues.
That's going to win over a lot of voters, donthca think?

YOU MUTHRS CALLED BUSH EVERYTHING but BUSH and it was "free speach"
Threatening the President of the United States is a crime, no matter if the President is R or D.
We are all Americans and should display respect for the office of the President no matter what. To go on Twitter and say, 4 more years of this n---er and hope he gets assassinated, is just heinous. I hope this will be a learning experience for this girl, who is obviously ignorant. Maybe she'll go to school now rather than working a minimum wage job at 22 and getting fatter and fatter everyday. That whole twitter thing has brought out the worst in many people; now she will not be hired by anyone, she has made herself a pariah.
I didn't like Bush, but would never condone anyone promoting violence against him or his family. It's just not right and makes all Americans look bad.

You are not only a racist but devoid of even junior high common sense. Sounds like the time is near to put the wheels back on the trailer and head north to Canada. America is definitely for you.

This medieval retrograde thinking has no place in our society or the 21st century.

You are in psychological denial, a masterpiece of banal self-delusion, completely untethered from reality.

The GOP has fomented greater division among the populace, spurring class warfare and widening racial divisions.

You got to be kidding. 911 was one of Bush'biggest screw ups.
Bush did not respond when informed of the airplane hitting the twin tower. Instead he kept reading a book to some kids with a stupid look on his face.
He did the samething when the 2nd airplane hit the twin tower. Afterwards his staff looked at him in disbelief as continue to read to the kids and after a few moments his staff had to drag him out of the classroom to address this terrorist attack on american soil.
His follow this up blaming and starting a war with Iraq who had nothing to do with it.
He fail to catch BIn Laden after 8 years who is to blame for the terrorist attack.
President Obama got Bin Laden in his first term.
And Benghazi is just another attempt from Fox, Reichwing Republican Racist and the haters to bring down this President. It is nothing but spin. There is nothing there.
Why did the Clinton administration let bin_laden get away?

I'm sure that a person on welfare doesn't even collect that amount. What we pay in taxes, you probably don't earn in a year.
But, continue on dummy.
The Democratic volunteers for the re election of President Obama are having a rummage sale today and tomorrow to donate all proceeds to the Red Cross of the victims of Sandy.

The bigger cost will be put on employers who will be required to offer insurance plans if they have 51 employees or more. Field said most large companies already provide coverage, but the change will be bigger for medium-sized companies.
There is some concern that the fees employers have to pay may be transferred either to the employee or the customer through more expensive services and goods. Whether the ACA will cut into salaries is unknown right now.
Everytime the government adds more fees and taxes, that's usually what happens. It gets passed on to the customer and, in this case, the employee.
First, companies with fewer than 50 employees are exempt.

Second, as an employer, I am sick & tired of my rates being higher because of those who use the system but do not pay. These are the uninsured.

How many companies do you know that offer no health insurance.

The ACA will save money for smaller businesses. Especially those with less than 10 employees (the majority of small businesses).

The ACA will save big money for those who purchase insurance as individuals.
