But hey, Obama and his plans for the economy and military, etc are what the majority of Americans want. They elected a celebrity who promises more of the same. Tax the wealthy at 100%, and punish corporations with higher taxes. Neither will personally affect me unless I end up in that group of unemployed that is bound to grow. But, that just means, I'll qualify for handouts.
I hope the Republicans don't oppose Obama on anything he wants. It will be as productive as 2009 and 2010 when the Democrats had the majority in Congress and carte blanche to make changes.
And, that 1 vision, UNITY will result in the United States turning into a cross between Greece and Zimbabwe.
Don't get your hopes up libturd. Obama has already proven he is a radical and cannot work with others. He is great at blaming others but the Teleprompter Stooge is not a leader, just a radical.

Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham on Sunday pointed to the roots of Southern strategy of the late 1960s -- which appealed to racism in the South -- as an example of how the Republican Party should reform itself after President Barack Obama won re-election.

"If the reaction to the election is let's dig into our core principles and try to remake them, I think the GOP will lose even more seats in 2014," Ingraham told Fox News host Chris Wallace. "If it becomes a bidding war with Republicans in either this group or that group -- whether it's Latinos or women -- we're going to give you more stuff or we're going to do amnesty plus... it's not going to work."

"The Republicans have to take a lesson from -- and I hate to bring up Reagan again -- when Goldwater got shellacked in '64, Bill Buckley and Brent Bozell Sr. and all these conservatives got together and they said, we're going to figure out how to sell this idea of economic conservatism and the conservative framework to new voters. And they went into the South and they transformed Mississippi and Alabama, all these places where people had never voted Republican before."

In his book "From the New Deal to the New Right: Race and the Southern Origins of Modern Conservatism," author Joseph Lowndes points out that William F. Buckley's used his National Review to argue that southern whites were superior to blacks and Brent Bozell wrote that the federal government had no right to end segregation.

Take notice those who want to deny that such ever happened.

<quoted text> Why do ya'll keep bringing up benghazi? Why didnt idol push for impeachment of the entire bush administration for the blatant cover up of the friendly fire murder of Pat Tillman? Why ya'll dont mention the fact that 7 embassies were attacked under the bush administration? Ya'll catch amnesia when it comes to republicans f-ck up. Like I've always said, tell the real reason ya'll nit picking with everything that goes in with Obama. Dont keep beating around the bush (no puns intended). Ya'll can't stand to see a blackman in office. Not only that ya'll can't stand to see that america has moved on pass the policies of the past. This isa not the 50s-60s. If you took anything from the election you should've took away the vision of our children & generations beon them. There were kids of all races, backgrounds, & heritages all voting for Obama with 1 vision, UNITY! The middle class needs the rich like the rich needs the middle class. 1 hands washes threw other. This is why you see holdouts in all sports. You can't be making record profits & still trying to penny pinch the under class. That ain't nothing but greed.
Excellent!
They've got nothing else so they spend their time lying. They didn't get the memo, lying doesn't work.

I know a few blacks that didn't vote for Obama and the reason why? He's not doing anything for this country... Then you have the blacks that voted for him. These are the ones that voted for him because he is black... Little do they know, that he can careless about them... The unemployment rate amongst minorities is the highest it's ever been.. There is no cure for ignorance...

It's called majority rule.

Democrats!

Hi haters!

Obama the genius borrows long term at 1.6% interest rate to fix the nation.

For the people.

He knows this: the top 10% of citizens own 80% of the net worth: currently $47 trillion.

We the people: filthy rich?

Oh yeah: BIGTIME!

these top 10% are so rich: they spent billions through right wing PAC's TO TELL YOU THE USA IS BANKRUPT?

far from it.

They want you to pay for government while they get a relatively "free ride" <--- think Mitty 13% tax rate?

If you would realize just how rich this group is: the top 400 people control $1.7 TRILLION! NET.

wow! They could easily fit on one 747.

Borrow in our names to save the nation?

It's a no brained! ACA: PROLIFE! STIMULUS: PRO WE THE PEOPLE.........send the bill to the top 10%......they have 80% of the dough!

OBAMA THE GENIUS!

YOU. <------- just cry babies, no ideas, losers, know nothings!

Bye haters! We got this!

They are reporting that his views on same sex marriage have "re-evolved". Probably to honor Muslim traditions, he's now saying he's against it....SUCKERS!!!!

Like I said ya'll have no response to the simple questions I asked just like none of the other Obama haters. If it ain't effecting you the what you whining about? Ya'll continually talk about what he's doing for the less fortunate. Bout time somebody does. Everything is shot to shit now that ya'll got to pay a lil bit more, but ya'll were quiet as a church mouse when the middle class to poor were in over their heads due to tongan policies. Obama is bringing in a sense of equality to this country. Ya'll white folks had the game rigged from the beginning. It's time to level the paying field. Oh & for your info, he & his policies don't do nothing for me. But I'm conscience enough to know it ain't all about me!

And your side has proven you cannot make the POTUS a one term President. No matter the foul mouth or foul lies you come up with the MAJORITY of Americans disagree with you.

I'd guess a union driver had to make the delivery. Just like the union prevented electricians and other utility workers from other areas working in NY after the storm. The non-union workers from other states were diverted to other states. Thousands in NY have been without power since Oct 30, and a lack of manpower for repairs is partly to blame.

But hey! New Yorkers love unions who love Obama.
