Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Yet you call yourself an American.

You and reality don't even have a passing acquaintence.

Your fellow Americans are the majority.

You remain in denial.

The brighter Republiclowns are moving away from the failure the Tea Party wrought, as voters rejected the extremism your party allowed to infect it.

I love that you cling to your same old beliefs. It insures your side will be marginalized for good going forward.

But your Obama Derangement Disorder (ODD) really requires professional help.

You're as full of shit as Carol.

Unions created the Middle Class. Without them, workers pay a steep price.

Hostess is an example of Rmoney style economics. THe Hedge Fund managers rewarded themselves with millions in pay, while th workers were asked to take cut after cut after cut.

At some point, people will refuse to be pushed around by rich fools. Expect to see more of that in the next few years.

hard times have always been the best organizer for unions.

Expect WalMart to have unions in the next few years.

It's the new civil rights movement.

To compare unions to greedy Corporate interests is ignorant, and that's being kind.

I would not have voted for Romney. Imo, he would have been worse for average Americans. As for Barack, we shall see. Companies are hiring again and unemployment has gone down some. I hope Republicans will work with the president in resolving this countries issues and fiscal matters. I just saw earlier that the talks were constructive and positive. I hope so.:)
As craven as this may sound, I voted for Mitt Romney because, of the two venal and repulsive choices, he was the only one who hadn't signed the NDAA. He was the only one who hadn't sent drone strikes into communities in other countries.(He essentially said he would do so, but campaign promises are some of the cheapest words in the language.)

I loathe and despise his political views as concern women - but the NDAA affects all of us, as does our National willingness, exemplified by our President, to eradicate those we perceive as enemies on foreign soil, or here at home.

Wait a minute lets not blame unions for our countries travails.
They have nowhere near the type of money or power Wall Street is yielding.

Well, I take offense at your first sentence.

Unions had a purpose at one time but that purpose has come and gone. Now they're just the strong arm and the bullies of the democratic party. Not to mention a major money maker.

As usual you post from ignorance. Damn right I take advantage of Social Security and Medicare, I was forced to pay into it the debacles for more than 50 years, still pay. But you know what, if I did not collect Social Security and did not use Medicare my life would not change a wit.

So you admit to being a taker. DUH

Weren't you just accusing others of doing just what you're doing?? Taking money and healthcare from the Gov't??

As I said, look in the mirror, ya freakin' hypocrite!!

I don't have an EBT card or a so called "Obamaphone". What I do have though, is Social Security and in another year, Medicare. 2 things that Romney wasn't going to guarantee if he had it his way. Of course, in this day and age, perhaps nothing is a 100% guarantee on anything, but I feel I picked the lesser of 2 evils. All of the ultra rich Republicans are going bonkers about having to pay a little more, yet they never gave a hoot about the middle class or poor, and that will never change. Poor losers they are.
No, all the ultra rich republicans weren't going bonkers, there's not enough of them to matter. I'm in a similar condition as you but I realize both programs are going broke soon, something must be done. Obama and the dems have shown their plan is to do nothing and let them run out of money. I also am intelligent enough to know we've seen this play before, at present in places like Greece, Spain and Portugal. You cannot have close to 50% of the population contributing nothing, it is just not sustainable. You also cannot have millions of uneducated mexicans clogging up the system and receiving funds illegally. Apparently it will take a complete failure of our economic system to get it thru the thick heads of the receivers.

Then they'll blame it on the republicans, likely Bush.

If liberals are so compassionate, I suggest they dig deep into their own pocketbooks.
