It's probably because we have brains and can process what's right in front of us.

Example.

Obama wants to end the Bush Tax cuts to the Wealthy.

This would send the top rate from 35 to 39 1/2%.

The Republicans want no elimination of the tax cut - I.e. 0% increase.

Now, what would be a compromise?

a) a 2 1/4% increase
b) a phase in of a percent a year
c) No increase.

The Republicans say c.

I have news, that isn't a compromise.

Obama said that complete return to pre Bush rates is not a red line on the sand.

So who will compromise?

This standoff on the fiscal cliff is hurting our country & our economy.

The Republicans learned nothing from their recent asskicking. They think obstruction & allowing this country to suffer makes them look good.

I have news, it makes them lose elections.

Yep, we're screwed.
This guy just awakened the 'loyal opposition' big time? Let's hope the House of Representatives holds their ground. We also noticed the shoe polish is back in place, on his hair. Whata Country?

So your answer is to spend money that we don't have.
Yeah .. thats a good plan. NOT
The truth is that both sending cuts & revenue increases must be done carefully not to damage our recovery.

The Tea Party plan would have cut spending severely & sent millions to the unemployment lines - like is happening in Europe.

We need a careful balanced approach.

Right now, we need Congress to act like adults & Americans.

When the black out media attacks Obama's press secretary for that ad claiming Romney killed that woman, you can be pretty sure Obama's lies have gotten pretty bad.
When Bill Clinton and another democrat on Meet the Press criticize the negative ads about Bain, you can be pretty sure Obama's lies have gotten pretty bad.
You're still among the easily fooled, sorry to say.
It's never too late to redeem yourself though.

Hillery, prognosticator, predicted the Romney campaign.

Did Romney ever tell the truth?

Where is Obama's promise for free healthcare to Hispanics?

Continuing to pay individuals "not" to work is a failed plan, no matter how you crunch the numbers.

Liberty to Lie

This election may go down in history as the moment when truth and lies lost their honor and stigma, respectively.

Mitt Romney has demonstrated an uncanny, unflinching willingness to say anything and everything to win this election. And that person, the unprincipled prince of untruths, is running roughly even with or slightly ahead of the president in the national polls.

What does this say about our country? What does it say about the value of virtue?

The list of Romney’s out-and-out lies (and yes, there is no other more polite word for them) is too long to recount here. So let’s just take one of the most recent ones: the utterly false claim that General Motors and Chrysler shipped, or planned to ship, American auto jobs to China.....

http://campaignstops.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/1...

Ever notice how FOX defended Mitt's lies?

Well first you have to realize that most of the lies came from FOX....

Like that 'terror' thing. When you make some talking head from CNN look good, well.......

Observation

'Carol' seems addicted to misinformation.

I believe he/she is a decent mammal that suffers from Romnesia Extrema.(A toxic disease virus spread by Fox.)

Each poignant post is a desperate attempt to justify inane ideas and wild theories.

I recommend a 'save carol' fund be established.

Ironically, all funds received, would have to be rejected as 'tainted gift' money by Carol!

PS - I do enjoy Carol's trips into LaLa Land...
It must be refreshing to be in psychological denial, a masterpiece of banal self-delusion, completely untethered from reality.

DOW futures down 34 but that doesn't mean anything right now. However if it is down over 50 at the close you may see a major sell off on Friday.
