Liberals get hysterical thinking evolution is a scientific fact instead of a theory and that climate change is something new to this century. One of Obama's publishers wrote in his bio that he was born in Kenya.
These are facts.
That sort of ignorance explains why your side lost the election!!

Because Teabaggers are really stupid!!

How'd the FAUX ropaganda work for you?? Y'all nitwits were screaming that Romney was ahead, he had momentum.

But it was all FAUX lies, as proved on election night, when FAUXLand had a complete break with reality as they screamed that Romney had NOT LOST OHIO!!

Tell us again how wonderful FAUX ratings are.

Then tell us how correct they were in their predictions.

Even now, Romney is still whining about the 47%.

Let him visit the CEO's that dumped Billions into his race.

Obama will visit those who supported him, not those who worked mightily to defeat him.

Payback for these Kock scumbags will be a m-fer!!

I'm lovin' it!!

Nice; however, Brown Eyes posted a joke and it wasn't vulgar. Comedians make fun of everyone and the joke about wearing two coats is pretty mild.
On the other hand, the poster rush is just a flat out sicko racist and only posts vulgarity.

We crossed an ocean, kicked out the previous owners and built millions of homes. I think it worked out pretty well.

Nobody can help you, Carol. Your ignorance is boundless.
But FDR would give Obama more than a run for his money. GM, AT&T, and most other unions came into being during the Great Depression.
The time when Americans realized the wealthy were ripping them off, and willing to let them live and die in poverty so the wealthy can make greater profits.
Not like today, when idiots like yourself support the rich in their exploiting of labor.
Hard times always bring ann increase in union activity. Don't look now, but even WalMart workers are looking to unionize, tired of being pawns with no rights.
You're too stubbornly blind to see that.
Ok, Tom Joad, you gonna be there...? Unions have run their course, like Nations, they have a life cycle, they are now in the corrupt phase of their development and have outlived their value to the "workers". They are now nothing more than a money wash for politicians.

Facts are fun.

Besides, it's not healthy to act like you have cornered the market on things that remain a mystery and will always be so in our limited and finite understanding of the universe in the name of politics.
Jindal is entitled to his opinion. Much of what Romney said is true just by the numbers - who voted for Obama and why.
But he is right in that conservatives need to broaden their message to these same people. I believe it will happen on its own after a few more years.
Not healthy to act like your have cornered the market on things that remain a mystery? Kinda like God? Lol. This kind thinking is why you and your party got such a huge slap in the face. Keep taking your orders from Fox. It worked so well in 2012.

Fox Nation: Where Jesus Meets T&A

The cognitive dissonance of Fox Nation is nowhere more apparent than it's promotion of the gospel of right wing Christian grievance while simultaneously providing some visual - er - stimulation for those Christian gentlemen who bray about liberals' loose moral standards. While Rupert Murdoch's Fox Nation can't get away with his "daily diet of topless 'Page 3 girls" in his British tabloids, it does provide some titillation for its readers in the form of photographs (Pic of the Day), on the right hand side of the site. Today we have a thread about Billy Graham's belief that "we have turned our backs on God" while the "pic" is a scantily clad Rihanna. Fox Nation has something for everybody!

Not much different from the FOX News site.

Keep clinging to your lies Carol. No one is hysterical but you and your fellow wingnuts. Your desperation is all over the place.
Fox News makes good money telling people what they want to hear.
The pamphlet itself was edited by Miriam Goderich who has since responded, saying it was her mistake. She replied in an email to Yahoo News:
You’re undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me — an agency assistant at the time. There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.
Carol: rebirth of the birfers. They're hysterical, they can't fathom that the rich white guy didn't win, Karl Rove whining like a baby. Smear campaign? How about the truth? Romney's own words buried him. I think they're going to go far, far right now with a vengeance!!

President Obama's first priority was meeting with union thugs...before meeting with CEOs in the private thank them for getting him elected again.
He loves his unions. Didn't he say something to the effect that he lives and breathes the SEIU in 2008?
The CEO's supported Romney.

Why would Obama want to meet with them first?? They're uselessless.

Obama met with the job creators. The folks who work and buy stuff, like cars, cellphones, clothing, food, creating jobs for others.

Not the ones who make scads of money and put it in offshore accounts, y'know, like the Twit.

Of course, you get your talking points from O'Reilly, th emost popular FAUXite, who was dead wrong about the election and most everything else.

But Carol loves to cling to her ignorance and religion, including belief in a make believe War on Christmas!!

Even now, still supporting Rmoney, as Christie, Jindal, and most Republiclowns are walking away from him, in a big hurry, so as not to be tainted by this historic loser.

332-206. THat's an ass whuppin if ever there was one!!

Yet Carol hasn't been given her orders to abandon Twit - wait, she will turn on him like a rabid dog as soon as O'Reilly tells her to.

High Ho, High Ho, it's off the cliff we go.

The Obama tax increases on the super-rich won’t solve our deficit problems. In fact, they won’t come anywhere close. The most generous estimates are that they will raise an additional $60 billion to $80 billion a year in revenue.

But the deficit has topped $1 trillion a year for every year that Obama has been in office. Washington will need to raise 15 to 20 times that much revenue if our leaders are serious about balancing the budget.

Here’s another example that should help bring some perspective to this discussion. It’s been estimated that repairing all the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy will come to something like $50 billion. That’s a staggering amount of money, isn’t it? The devastation we’ve seen on our TV screens (and many people have witnessed in person) has been incredible.

But consider this: Obama’s deficits have amounted to 20 such hurricanes every year for the past four years.

That brings me to the second fact that the politicos in Washington — on both sides of the aisle — will have to face. This country doesn’t have a revenue problem; it has a spending problem. When you add together taxes collected by all levels of government, the combined bite from Federal, State and local taxes comes to more than half of the money the more successful people among us earn. What sort of incentives will successful people have to try even harder and do even better if the government grab goes even higher?

The answer can be found somewhere between “very little” and “none.”

But there’s even more bad news waiting for us around the corner. What happens when the badly misnamed Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as Obamacare, becomes fully operational over the next two years?

Well, for one, an awful lot of us will be paying more in taxes, thanks to various fees and add-ons the bill includes. That’s bad enough. But even worse, a lot of full-time jobs in this country will vanish, as more and more companies replace them with part-time workers. Employers will not be required to provide health insurance for anyone working 30 hours a week or less. A lot of companies will prefer to hire four part-time workers to three full-time ones. Can you blame them?

A lot of these problems could be solved by a vibrant, growing economy that saw millions of new jobs being created — which also would mean billions more tax dollars being collected. It’s happened several times in the past, under both Republicans (see Ronald Reagan) and Democrats (see Bill Clinton’s second term).

What are the chances that an even more liberal Senate and a President who no longer has to worry about being re-elected will do the things necessary to get the economy growing again? I fear they are very, very small.

If I were a conservative legislator in Washington today, what would I do? I’d stick to the promises I made that got me there. I’d insist that our government needs to spend less and tax less, and I’d vote only for legislation that helps move the country in that direction.

More freedom, not more government, will produce the prosperity we once enjoyed — and can enjoy again. But that’s not what we’re going to get from Washington anytime soon.

No one wanted Conservative solutions.

Better batten down the hatches, folks. I’m afraid we’re in for a very rough ride.
