There is plenty of evidence that ethics is in short supply in both business and Washington. There isn't ANY reason people should get free handouts just because they don't want to work, that's a no-brainer. It's also a no-brainer that it was top end lack of ethics that caused the economy to tank. At the same time, how is firing people who DO want to work supportive of the notion that corporations are AT ALL interested in building the economy?(It seems more likely that reducing labor costs is going to get that CEO his bonus at the fiscal quarter.) Isn't 47% more than enough? Nevada has 11.8% unemployment - isn't THAT enough?
Never having received any free hand outs here-ALWAYS having work (along with my spouse) for ANY and EVERYTHING we've ever had the blessings of being able to EARN, I agree with your statement about that.
The rest-

His Mormonism was definitely a factor in a lot of republicans and conservatives not voting.
But it might just prove to have been a blessing in disguise.
The GOP did not have a viable candidate.
The selection was poor to ridiculous.
Paul & Huntsman were the only sane offerings.

Obama did not deviate. His message was clear.

Mitt had no message, only lies, distortion and wishful thinking.

The problem with the GOP is they actually believed their own spin and so did Fox!

Now the 'piper must be paid'
I expect the Rep governors that tried to bust unions to be cast out in 2014.

Most people fail to appreciate just how significant this victory was and the consequences for Repugs.

The GOP is a broken entity that needs drastic reform.

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.
well then, write to eric cantor and tell him to allow boner o do the right thing...otherwise it's on your head carol

Carville used words so Democrats like you could understand (simple and violence). He is good at that. He is a smart man and understands how to get things across to people like you.

Hope some of my other fellow clear thinkers return soon.

We have been given a mandate to be the loyal opposition again.

Didn't think I'd have it in me but, actually, I wouldn't want to miss the liberal exodus of changed minds on here over the next four years for anything.

what's that definition of insanity again?
It's not all that bad for us. You takers didn't get the House so Obama & the racist Harry Reid still has a leash. It's very rare for an incumbent president to lose, but it's common for the other party to gain seats durin mid-term elections.

That's what you should be worried about now, dolt. Stay cocky.

So if you have a taxable income of $100K and your rate goes from 28 to 25%, you evidently don;t have an additional $3k in your bank account?
Did or did not the tax cuts give you that additional $3K.
Hey stupid fck, a tax cut doesn't give you money. A tax cut is the government taking less of what already belongs to you.

Wanna change the tax code? Make people pay taxes from their pocket books not as income deductions.

Our mandate is being the loyal opposition, I agree, but I'm really praying the House Republicans will give Obama and the Democrats free rein.

It's the only way we can be blameless in 2014 and 2016.

The liberals will try to turn it on us again for sure otherwise.
