Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

<quoted text>A Republican had an accident and needed a brain transplant, The doctor told his family brains are very expensive and you will have to pay for the costs yourselves. How much does a brain cost, asked the family?
For a Republican brain $500,000 dollars.
For a Democrat brain $200,000 dollars.
All the Republicans in the family nodded because they thought they understood.
But the one democrat family member was unsatisfied and asked, Why the difference between Republican and Democrat brains?
Standard pricing practice said the doctor. The Democrat brains have to be marked down because they've actually been used.
I hope you don't expect me to read your Obamadrivel. LOL

You summed up the rightwinger mentality to a T, when the going get's tough and the work gets hard just leave it to someone else.

why are rightwingers so damn dumb?
Imagine I am a pharmacist, and you waddle in with your prescription for viagra and I say, "it's against my religion to fill this prescription"?
or
you waddle in with your prescription for insulin, and I say "It's not my problem that you have abused your body and have diabetes, I refuse to fill this"
or
You waddle in, writhing in pain, with your prescription for painkillers, and I say "it's not my problem that you're in pain, it's against my religion to fill this"
Then I would just find another pharmacy, having no right to demand that you do something against your principles.

<quoted text>Okay, duly noted, so just Katherine and Realtime.
Nah, I'm sticking to the Repubs because I believe that the real action is in the primaries and that's were my votes count most.

A (D) is my district might as well be an (I) or even a convicted felon because there is no one for them to vote for in the local, state and even the national house and senate races.

This year I only cast a single (R) vote, for John Mica, a career US house moderate who is on a couple of important committees.

Obviously there are many Repubs out there who think like I do and can't stomach the lying, loudmouthed, POS right wing slugs.

Eh?

<quoted text>If Homer were an executive at Hostess, there wouldn't be any bankruptcy process. Most likely company run by short-sighted middle-aged pasty white Republicans, the reason we have seen many big companies go belly up. They were probably more concerned with getting their bonuses and making as much money as possible to set themselves up and to hell with the company, they'll walk away just fine.
Always humorous to listen to the liberals talk about how they would run a corporation when they have most likely failed at any business venture that have ever attempted. This is why most love the government union work as they can be as incompetent as they like and still be paid exorbitant salaries on the back of the real working taxpayers.

Homer appears to be just another government dependent looking for any justification to explain why he lives off the sweat of others because he is too lazy to make it on his own. This is why the 47% were so outraged when Romney called them out and why we supply EBT cards to the losers now instead of food stamps. They have no problem taking their cut of your paycheck… just as long as you don’t call them out on it

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)— Construction on new homes rose in October to the highest rate in more than four years, government data showed Tuesday, in another sign of a strengthening U.S. housing market.
Housing starts rose 3.6% last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 894,000, the highest rate since July 2008, the U.S. Department of Commerce reported. Starts are up 42% from last year, though the rate remains far below a bubble peak of almost 2.3 million in 2006.

Official: Changes to Benghazi talking points made by intel community

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-California, told CNN on Monday that Petraeus explained why the talking points were changed.

"Gen. Petraeus made it clear that that change was made to protect classified sources of information, not to spin it, not to politicize it and it wasn't done at the direction of the white house. That really ought to be the end of it, but it isn't. So we have to continue to go around this merry go round, but at a certain point when all the facts point in a certain direction, we're going to have to accept them as they are and move on," Schiff said.

Poor Mitt Romney has become a Republican punching bag as leaders within the party denounce his post-election comments about how President Obama won re-election by promising government-funded "gifts" to minority groups and young voters. As Republicans jab Romney though, they're missing the larger, more pressing point: They don't have a Mitt Romney problem. They have a Fox News problem.

Romney's "gifts" put-down echoed the infamous claim Romney made during the campaign that 47 percent of Americans see themselves as "victims" and are overly dependent on the government. With the campaign concluded, lots of fellow Republicans now feel free to bash Romney:

• "It's nuts," said former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

• "I absolutely reject what he said," announced Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

• "When you're in a hole, stop digging. He keeps digging," complained Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

Though prominent conservatives are now lashing out at the former presidential candidate, the truth is Fox News has loudly championed the divisive philosophy behind Romney's "47 percent" and "gifts" comments for months and practically authored them for the Republican candidate. Last week Fox talkers cheered Romney's "gifts" post-election critique, treating it as a universal truth.(According to Fox Business host Stuart Varney, Obama was "buying votes with taxpayer money. Handouts all over the place.")

And it's not just a Fox News problem. Republicans have an even more expansive right-wing media problem (television, radio, Internet, etc.), which now doubles as the face and voice of the GOP and which celebrates the kind of toxic "47 percent" and "gifts" rhetoric that's being condemned within the party.
