We just have to reach out and get that message across in 2016 better than we did this time around. It should be a lot easier to do after four years of Democrats getting their way.
Marco Rubio is already preparing to be the face of the Republican party in 2016. But I'm sure you'll find some way to crucify a Latino who disagrees with your ideology too.
Well it will be interesting. Don't forget, we know who Rubio is here in Florida.
Women don't want the government to control their bodies; they don't want to beg the government to have an abortion and prove they were raped. Women don't want to be raped by the state with a vaginal probe and then be forced to pay $500 for the procedure.
Why do the the republicans always unite in wanting to make lives difficult for women and gays? That has to just stop, it's just not right Carol, it's sickening.
A friend said to me; maybe the losing candidate should be VP; and interesting thought. Ultimately we are all Americans. It is the Right who has made the divide larger through pandering to religious fanatics, corporations, the NRA etc. Maybe it's time that the people realize that they are being used.

WTH is the matter with dem up dar these days anyway...it appears they've gone totally mad, consumed by incomptance of too much regulatory ailments resulting from the subtle reins of commieticism.
I hope Congress immediately agrees on all tax hikes on the rich in support of Obama's War on Success. And then we who get to sit back and watch nothing improve. Tax the wealthy at 100%, which would support the government for a whole 8 days. Here come the Days of Whine & Sheeze.

If you're managing 50 units I'm sure someone's toilet needs unplugged. Maybe you should get busy. Or, are you a typical Republican, just sitting at a desk while one of your underpaid non-union employees does the work for you while you play on the computer.
p.s.
Did you build those 50 units yourself?

This has been my ex-husband's strategy for the last 20 years - of course, he also lives without electricity, heats his 10' x 20' shack with a wood stove, draws his water from a well outside the front door, and shits in an outhouse, in order to stay 'off the grid', and continue to evade detection by the IRS....but whatever peels your grapefruit is fine by me.

I guess your biz buddies loved the Bush recession.
As for running on give-aways, Republicans always run on tax cuts i.e, give-aways.
The Bush recession compared to the Obama Depression are already the good old days.

LOL Republicans are so stupid to think a Cuban is the answer to all their Latino woes.
It's precisely that "traditional values" crapola that lost you every voter under the age of 65.
The message of unequal pay for women, vaginal probes, legitimate rape, life begins at conception, ant-birth control, and anti-gay that is killing your Party.

And stupid people might have elected Romney based on single social issues. It would appear that the majority disagreed with the opposition. It's a novel idea the nation's forefathers called DEMOCRACY.

It's not stupid to want to protect civil rights, and the rights of women and gays and children. We fight for those rights for everyone, the rights that the unions fought for were for everyone. Everytime you take a lunch break or coffee break or have a paid vacation or raise or sick day or 40 hr week, or maternity leave; these were won by unions. We fight for rights for ALL Americans.
You fight to take away rights of women, gays and children, minorities and blacks.
That is the difference between us.

It's a 3% increase ONLY on the income over $200,000.
Stop wetting your pants. The country did just fine when that was the tax rate under Clinton and a GOP Congress.

It should be mentioned again that an exit poll said 42% were swayed by Obama's reaction to Hurricane Sandy.
That's 4 in 10 voters.
Also, Romney's mormonism went against him.
So, while Obama wants to believe he was reelected because of his "approach", he's a bit delusional.
I read that more Mormons voted for Bush than they did Romney.
Seems he's not well liked anywhere. You got a bad candidate, no one really liked him from the get go, even you.

Chris Matthews' comments about how great the storm was for Obama politically, speak volumes about the liberal mindset.

Gullible Americans bought the Obama campaign's message that Romney was out of touch with their pain.

Now we can safely say how true it is of the far-left MSM and the union bosses that are the Democratic Party.

Chris Tingle Down My Leg Matthews is the poster child of media bias and Democrat hypocrites.

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.
O geez...the guy in charge of overseeing the state of "medical fungus for national shipment" facility?

$200K might sound like a lot to you, but here in New York that is less than the combined salaries of a wife who is a teacher and a husband who is a cop and still struggle to stay middle class during the Obama Depression. I don't recall gas being $5 a gallon when Clinton was President. Nothing was as expensive then, relative to income, the way it is now.
