Barack Obama, our next President

She simply pointed out the truth. Are you saying the Democrats & Obama did not run a smear campaign?
You guys couldn't have gotten any lower! The lies were abundant from your side, Harry Reid included.
What a liar!

Using Mitt's own words: 47% of citizens are victims.....blah blah blah

That is not a "smear"

That is the truth.

Look what the moron is saying now: I lost because of gifts promised by Obama.......

He is so clueless! Just like every Republican.

The real smear campaign was right wing PAC's lying every two minutes non stop.

But the relevant voters can figure out who the scumbags are: Republicans!

Hey mannnnnn! Keep up that: it's 1950 in America schtick! Republicans hate women, gays, non Christians, and non whites. It's so easy to spot liars! Today's voters have grown up with black heroes on their walls. They accept gay rights and attend gay marriages. They want rights between a woman and her Dr. left intact. They see a Buddhist temple and are not bothered.

So keep up the lying. Republicans: Irrelevant!

Funny from the party the voted for UNFUNDED tax cuts, UNFUNDED expansions in Medicare & UNFUNDED wars, and record UNFUNDED earmarks.
How can you blame just Republican's for any of that? Who was writing the checks? Who was in running Congress when those things were voted for and approved?

Funny that liberals blame the Congress for everything they don't want tagged to their mesiah, and yet when a R is sitting in the White House and the Congress is controlled by Dems....it's all on the guy at the top then.

Our countries problems were brought about by BOTH parties. BOTH!!! Neither party represents the American people and neither party really gives a sh*t what the American people want. Our country is run by two parties that are both owned by special interest...interest not working in the interest of the rest of us.

Just as many democrats ditched Hillarycare as republicans.
So you cut the crap.
We kind of got sidetracked with 3000 Americans killed in the most unimagineable way on 9/11/2001.
Please tell me when democrats ever took up the cause of health care again after Hillarycare was put in file 13 - by both parties? Democrats had control of Congress during part of the Bush years too. Why didn't they come up with another plan?
Republicans took over Congress in 1995. They defeated healthcare reform yet did not even talk about healthcare reform.

And really, playing the 9-11 card? Really.

Republicans had time, at a time of war, to push through their unfunded tax cuts, unfunded medicare expansion, record unfunded earmarks. So Carol, step out of your denial & admit that Republicans had no intent on restructuring our healthcare. None.

If they did, you wouldn't be here lying & bitching about Obamacare.

May I ask you something? Do you ever do research for yourself?

Wall Street Journal - Obama's Dividend Assault: A plan to triple the tax rate would hurt all shareholders.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405297...

NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- Eighteen CEOs urged Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner this week to rethink the Obama administration's proposal to raise the 15% tax rate on dividends and capital gains for high-income households.

A hike in investment tax rates "could spark a new wave of volatility in our financial markets and give a competitive edge to overseas corporations at a time when we need capital formation here in America to create jobs and expand our economy," the CEOs said in an opinion article for Politico.

That was quite a stage performance by the Napoleonic caricature of a man who calls himself president Obama.
Obama supporters must be some of the most feeble minded organisms on the planet to lap up Obama's B.S.
Far be it from the gallant man Obama or any of his noble cronies to besmirch anyones reputation.
Integrity and morality is simply oozing from every orafice on the left.

The human capacity for self-delusion never ceases to amaze me, so it shouldn't surprise me that so many Republicans seem to genuinely believe that they are the party of fiscal responsibility. Perhaps at one time they were, but those days are long gone.

This fact became blindingly obvious to me six years ago this month when a Republican president and a Republican Congress enacted the Medicare drug benefit, which former U.S. Comptroller General David Walker has called "the most fiscally irresponsible piece of legislation since the 1960s."

They still don't get it. Mitt ran on what the party stands for. The people voted against it. Get over it.
Now they want to recreate themselves; how is that possible?
If they all of a sudden become in favor of gay rights, gay marriage, womens rights, civil rights, amnesty, universal healthcare etc., well, then they're Democrats!
They're really fkd.

we petition the obama administration to:
Put an end to the destruction of unborn babies through Abortions.
women are now having abortions because they do not like the sex of the fetus. If they had to pay for those abortions we will see how quickly the abortions would diminish.
The government is wasting millions of dollars, to permit women to act as prostitutes, and have no fear of becoming pregnant, for they can get an abortion. This act not only destroys the unborn child, but also destroys the woman that has them. Their minds, and morals will suffer because of an act sanctioned by the US Government.

I had many friends that were victims of the closing too. Fortunately due to this area's rather large industrial base, the shipyards, Stihl, Canon and the many defense-oriented businesses, most of my friends did ok.

I don't mean to suggest that Democrats are any better when it comes to the deficit, although they have a better case for saying so based on the contrasting fiscal records of Bill Clinton and George W. Bush. The national debt belongs to both parties. But at least the Democrats don't go on Fox News day after day proclaiming how fiscally conservative they are, and organize tea parties to rant about deficits, without ever putting forward any plan for reducing them. Nor do they pretend that they have no responsibility whatsoever for projected deficits, at least half of which can be traced directly to Republican policies, according to Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag.

It astonishes me that a party enacting anything like the drug benefit would have the chutzpah to view itself as fiscally responsible in any sense of the term. As far as I am concerned, any Republican who voted for the Medicare drug benefit has no right to criticize anything the Democrats have done in terms of adding to the national debt. Space prohibits listing all their names, but the final Senate vote can be found here and the House vote here.

The process of elections has become problem-ridden. On both sides. It's a mess, I agree.
Both sides like to talk about the mess but won't fix the mess because apparently both sides like the mess as long as one side likes it as much as the other side.
What are we supposed to do? Not vote?
The problem is, Republicans don't accept FACTS. Evolution? Climate Change? Obama American? Pregnancies occur as a result of rape? According to the Republicans, the answer to these questions is NO.

The good news is, as long as they are determined to dispute facts, they will be forever known as, according to Bobby Jindal, "the stupid party". And "the stupid party" has no future in American politics. So you just keep going with your asinine excuses for what your party has become....deny, deny, deny. Your skewed polls, your un-ending conspiracy theories, your constant denial of facts and your twisted interpretation of policy...the "fiscal" conservative bullshit is an absolute joke. Get serious Carol.

If one counts 2000 as stolen elections then the GOP record since 1992 is just dismal. Even without that they have lost the popular vote 5 out of the last 6 presidential elections and barely squeaked by the one time they "won."

So just maybe the suppressed Democratic majority has now emerged. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Hostess is history! Another fine American business killed by a union. You libtards are destroying this country. The workers wanted to go back to work but the bigwigs threaten them with fines if they crossed the picket line. So now 18,500 people are out of work. Sure most will be rehired by the new companies but how long will that take? Friggin' unions are ruining this country.
President Obama's first priority was meeting with union thugs...before meeting with CEOs in the private sector...to 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?

It's really pathetic to be trashing a women that has survived cancer and has MS simple because she is married to the man that ran against the president. How shallow of you. I bet you have a fit when people trash Michelle Obama don't you? Ann Romney has more integrity than you could ever hope to have. To trash her and make fun of her, especially now after the election, is really not the best show of those that voted for Obama. Some of those that voted for Obama would have the intregrity to tell you what a apsolute dumbass you are. You really come off as jealous and shallow, and very pathetic.

Until this occurs, I remain indifferent.
a) A constitutional amendment that fixes our broken electoral system by 1) completely removing campaign contributions from the political process; 2) requiring all elections to be publicly financed; 3) moving election day to the weekend to increase voter turnout; 4) making all Americans registered voters at the moment of their birth; 5) banning computerized voting and requiring that all elections take place on paper ballots.
b) A constitutional amendment declaring that corporations are not people and do not have the constitutional rights of citizens. This amendment should also state that the interests of the general public and society must always come before the interests of corporations.
c) A constitutional amendment that will act as a "second bill of rights" as proposed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt: that every American has a human right to employment, to health care, to a free and full education, to breathe clean air, drink clean water and eat safe food, and to be cared for with dignity and respect in their old age.

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.

If you look at the size of the union in their membership & financial responsibility, union heads do not make a high salary compared to other organizations of that similar size.

I didn't call them evil.

However, when we have CEOs making tens of millions while pushing employees to take pay cuts just to improve the bottom line, then yes, they are evil.
