Why is it you libs seem to think that the money you earn is for everones use and government has every right to all but what they think you should be allowed to keep.
Because they like Greece's economic system?

Taxes are not theft.

We all own the gov.

It is ours. All assets and all debts.

"You people"

Wonder why you lost?

Grow up!

We lost the election but we haven’t lost the Country ‘Yet!! 2014 elections will be an indicator whether we reach that tipping point (Government verse Individual Responsibility/Self-Reliance) I still have confidence in the American People making the Right choice in 2014!!
That's what happened in 1994 - the Republican Revolution under the Clinton administration in the second year of his first term.

Think it just took us four years to adjust to what happened in 2008.

Hopefully, by 2014, Americans will have woken up from their stupor.

Read the post again, or have someone read it to you. There was no spin, just raw numbers in battleground states. Notice they gave the same analysis for kerry's loss in 2004.

republican war on truth and accuracy continues:

Fresh from a stinging defeat in this week’s national election, Republicans have been newly energized by a plan they say will bring an end to the FiveThiryEight, the blog that correctly forecast President Barack Obama’s re-election win.

“It’s simple, really,” explained Republican National Committee communications director Sean Spicer.“We add three Electoral College votes, which will bring the national total to 541, and that will nullify the predictive success of the FiveThiryEight. It’s just math and logic.”

Do you know how many people are still without power and homes and FEMA is broke?
Obama did what any president would do after a natural disaster. But he was able to capitalize on it right before an election.
And he did. Big time.
I never said he didn't, and I never said Romney didn't try to, either. I don't have any unrealistic expectations that FEMA or anyone else can rebuild a disaster area in 2 weeks even if there were bottomless resources on site. Do you think they keep warehouses full of workers and spare drag & drop cities? FEMA is broke? Why shouldn't they be? They've had had over a hundred disaster declarations so far this year. In your zeal to blame Obama for acts of God, have you ALREADY forgotten Hurricane Isaac and the fires out west?

Arguing with an idiot like you:

Taxes are the lowest in generations!

Debt grows every year! Under right wingers too: Bush/Cheney cut taxes more AND BORROWED $5 TRILLION!(You cried about this?)(Any of you?) No.

tax cuts: more debt.

The right winger way!

TAXES GOING UP ON RICHEST INCOMES! DEAL WITH IT LOSERS!

“I don’t claim to understand statistics and polling because I believe it’s all a myth, just like global warming,” said Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma.“But I think if we change the number of Electoral College votes, it will help people see the FiveThirtyEight for the fraud that it is.”

Why aren't you asking SPECIFICALLY which deductions Boehner wants to get rid of? Chances are astronomically high that they will hurt you - but Soros and Adelson won't even notice.

Case in point for spiking the ball. I had 2 signs in my yard for GOP candidates on Nov. 6. In the morning I had 20 Demo candidate signs in my yard. Classless parasites.

If only the CBO hadn't predicted the economy will grow by 0.05% instead of 1.7% which is necessary to stay afloat if Obama gets his way on January 1.
In its most dire warning yet about the fiscal cliff, the CBO said the economy would contract by 0.5 percent in calendar year 2013 if the George W. Bush-era tax rates expire and automatic spending cuts are implemented.

Unemployment also would rise from 8.2 percent in 2012 to 9.1 percent next year, the office estimates.

I incorrectly added another zero. It's 0.5% but doesn't really change the scenario.
