Barack Obama, our next President

Condeleesa Rice went on talk shows & said how Iraq had WMDs. We invaded Iraq. There were no WMDs. Republicans confirm Condi Rice as Sec of State.
Susan Rice said the attacks appeared to be the results of a demonstration against a video that escalated. This has been changed to a planned terrorist attack.. Republicans run screaming through the streets with torches & pitchforks. OMG OMG she can't be Sec of State.
Testimony from the CIA confirms that their talking points changed. That the possible relation with terrorist organizations were scrubbed from their initial memos.
The idea that Republicans didn't give a sh*t that the misinformation Condeleesa Rice provided helped send 4000 soldiers to their death evidently pales in comparison of statements about Benghazi that got no one killed or injured.
Republicans really suck d*ck. How anyone can support this pack of liars & losers is beyond me.
My God, the hypocrisy alone.

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.
Oh, lighten' up. I can't help it if Hitler loved unions too.

May I ask you something?? Do you ever think for yourself??
Will your dividend rate go up?? Are you one of the CEO's who tried mightily to defeat Obama??
You're poor, you likely don't have investments, much less dividend paying stocks,if you have them, they're in hubby's 401K, and you don't pay taxes on income in a 401k.
Why does a poor person like you, maing $15 an hour, part time, care about taxes on wealthy folks??
Why do you ignorantly throw your lot in with rich folks? Hoping to get more cheap stuff they leave on the curb??
You make no sense at all, Carol. You stated you were willing to throw your husband under the bus concerning Medicare so rich people wouldn't have to pay more taxes.
Why are you so self loathing you kneel before the rich and take whatever scraps they throw to you?? Folks like your hero, sex deviate O'Reilly, worth $50 million.
You actively lobby against your own self interests. That's a definition of insanity.
And your daughter voted for Obama, laughing at you behind your back!!
I always think for myself. I always make sense. And I am not self-loathing.

You're just cuckoo if you don't think Obama isn't going to tax the you-know-what out of those making more than 250,000 and raising the dividend taxes won't affect the economy and, thus, all of us.

Seems top be Susan Rice is smarter & has better educational resume.

Other than towing the Bush line, Condi Rice did a good job.

Susan Rice is smarter & has a better resume & experience.

If your Republicans confirmed Condi, they should confirm Susan. That is unless they are petty, party first twits.

This is what I was trying to remember:

The labor union was the chief tool of the early twentieth century demagogue (Hitler). Modeled after the success of arousing the discontent of the French peasants of the late 18th century, it was the natural place to amalgamate the passions and tensions of workers and lead them into revolt. The basic tenet of both the Russian and German revolutions was labor based social/political revolt (“Workers of the world unite!”). The differences were in style not substance.

Well the DOW was down about 70 when the yahoos on capital hill came out and did their little song and dance about avoiding the cliff. Market shot up to positive to around 37. It will be interesting if it stays up or goes back down after lunch and towards the close. It might stay positive if they keep the loser off the television.

The bakery business is in distress almost everywhere.

The only worthwhile Hostess assets are the brand names.

The biggest Hostess liabilities are the employee contracts and pension plans.

The outcome seems obvious.

Environmentalists are working to reduce the use of non biodegradable bags brought to us from industry - not environmentalists.

Over the lifetime of these CFLs, there is less mercury in them than the mercury saved in their use from emitted coal fired generation plants.

I had truly hoped that the President would have pushed for the public option, open up Medicare for all rather than this complicated bill that was a compromise.
I hope that eventually it will become universal healthcare for all paid through taxation and not attached to employment. It's the simplest and fairest way.
only in your world is forceing one to labor for the needs of another considerd fair. Years ago it was called slavery.

Perhaps you can explain why the wealthy were doing just fine during the Clinton era and before, when taxes were higher.

Bush cut taxes and crashed the economy, without producing 1/10th of th ejobs created by Clinton and higher taxes.

If the tax cuts were so good for the economy, why did we have the biggest financial crash since the Great Depression??

You're a poor racist cracka who is lied to and led by the likes of O'Reilly.

So if the MSM is so wrong, why did they call the election correctly??

If FAUX is so right, why did they get it completely wrong??

The evidence is there, for those who look at it without their right wingnut glasses on.

You're just a sore loser.

Obama won. Get over it!!

You've got ODD.

first of all carol, those tax cuts were rammed through by reconciliation by bush with no way to pay for them.

second, they were, at least on paper, designed to expire so restoring them to pre bush levels is not exactly a tax increase, it's a correction that was built into the deal...just like the payroll tax decrease was supposed to be temporary.

third, carol...we're talking about 3%...3% carol. you are defending to YOUR hilt, those anti patriots who won't give an inch to help the country back on it's feet after 8 years of disastrous policy. They couldn't possibly care less about you and your family, why then do you care sooooooooo much about them and there precious 3%?

P.S. my prediction is that the taxes will only go up on those making $500,000 or more....boo f*cking hoo
