You are functioning under the delusion that our economy has recovered from the recession, either that, or you are another propagandist for the Obama administration.

If Obama got what he really deserved he would be sitting in prison for his part in the ACORN scam.

Imagine a person being so obsessed about whether a woman takes contraceptives or not?
That argument "as long as I don't pay for it" doesn't hold any water, yet they keep repeating it like parrots.
Everyone pays for everything in insurance; everyone pays for everything with taxes. No one gets to pick and choose.
Why is that so difficult to comprehend?
Because that argument "as long as I don't pay for it" is the only one which makes 'logical' sense to them, so they keep repeating it like parrots. They refuse to admit that their freedom to pick and choose what everyone else's insurance covers, is actually nonexistent. Wonder if they'd think it was okie-dokie for me to choose not to cover their erectile dysfunction, or their self-induced diabetes resulting from obesity? I'm thinking 'no'.

So, you either you don't have sex, had a vasectomy, or believe that the sole responsibility on contraception lies with the woman.

How a bout this, let her take the guy who knocked her up to court and make him pay for her abortion the way fathers are required to make child-support payments. If he still wants to keep boinking her, let him pay for her damn birth control too.
I'm glad insurance covered my husband's counseling, following his diagnosis of sterility. It was a real blessing. Thanks for paying his insurance premiums for the last 40 years. I'm sure he really appreciated it!!

Gas prices continue to plummet. Tensions are easing in the Middle East. Unemployment claims are steadily dropping. Our standing in Asia greatly improved during his recent trip. I urge all Americans to give thanks for President Obama this Thanksgiving.
Unemployment claims are dropping because we have a president who tells us we "didn't build that" and that the cure for unemployment if welfare, food stamps and free phones. People are accepting his defeatist attitude and giving up looking for work.

As for Asia, he probably set up a deal to give them food stamps and Obama phones. Funny how he takes credit for all those "gifts" like the money that pays for them comes from his own pocket, ain't it?

I said the CBO said 10% of the blame on Obama.
When the payroll tax cut was last extended, both Republicans & Democrats wanted to extend it, Yet they were arguing about how to pay for it.
"Pay for it" is funding.
When you just issue tax cuts without corresponding spending cuts or other revenue increases, then that tax cut is unfunded.
Bush & the Republicans cut taxes while increasing spending due to expansion of government & a time of war. There were no corresponding spending cuts nor were there ay revenue increases.
Thank goodness, Spending cuts, I'm all for them. Except the military. The Giverment, Barack Hussein Obama et al, didn't list any spending cuts. Your reasoning still falls short though.. You "doesn't has to 'fund' a tax cut". Just don't ask the taxpayer, you know the guy who pays the bill, to send the money in.... Simple really. A tax cut puts more money in my pocket, and in your pocket. You if your employer wasn't required to send so much money to DC and your State, you might get more than and 'atta boy, good job'.......in your pay envelope.

Mitt Romney's Sneering Farewell to the '47 Percent'

Now before dispensing with Romney for good -- as most Americans (including many Republicans) are understandably eager to do -- it is worth noting that these churlish excuses to his donors represent the ultimate falsification, not only of his campaign but of his own character.

Recall how he disowned the "47 percent" remarks when he realized how damaging they were to his chances for victory, telling Sean Hannity on Fox News that what he had been caught saying at a $50,000-a-plate Boca Raton fundraising event was "just completely wrong." His mea culpa was factually accurate, of course -- as we have discovered again lately with the news that so many food stamp recipients reliably vote Republican. Those who don't pay income tax include plenty of Republicans, especially the elderly on Social Security and military personnel on active duty and poor white evangelical voters who simply don't earn enough. They also include thousands of wealthy Romney supporters who, like their candidate, have learned to manipulate the tax system.

But as a matter of feelings rather than facts, Romney evidently cannot stop himself from sneering at society's struggling people and the politicians who seek to improve their lives. It is not as if the donors he was addressing don't want "gifts" from government -- such as the big new tax breaks that Romney had promised them, the huge increases in defense spending that would swell their profits, or the various individual corporate favors that they regard as their very own "entitlements." Just don't expect that kind of honest introspection from Romney or his crowd.

You have the president YOU deserve, I don't.
are you talking about the ACORN scandal where conservative O'Keefe doctored up a video.....

http://mediamatters.org/research/2010/03/02/b...

It turns out that Andrew Breitbart didn't actually know what was on the ACORN tapes when he helped launch them on his website last year, and used the videos to fuel his oddly personal crusade against the low-income advocacy organization.

That's right -- Breitbart didn't know what was on the tapes. Take a few seconds to let the implications of that confession sink in, and what it means to Breitbart's already dented credibility.

Recall that for months Breitbart personally vouched for the ACORN videos, braying loudly that they could not be ignored and that they represented the unvarnished truth. Breitbart claimed he had told "the truth" every step of the way about the controversial ACORN clips and bragged that "[t]hroughout the ACORN story I applied my conscience to the material."

But now it turns out that Breitbart was fooled by the ACORN pimp hoax and mistakenly assumed, after watching deceptively edited clips from his protégé James O'Keefe, that O'Keefe strolled into ACORN offices wearing the outlandish pimp outfit.

Now Breitbart, the chief promoter of the ACORN sting, claims he "didn't know" the truth about the tapes. Although he's quick to insist it doesn't really matter anyway.

And yes, that sound you hear is Breitbart throwing O'Keefe under the bus. Because it's O'Keefe who Breitbart now blames for the "discrepancy" regarding the pimp hoax. It's O'Keefe, who Breitbart once touted as a should-be Pulitzer Prize winner, who created the false impression that he walked into ACORN offices last summer dressed as a garish pimp.

In a video interview posted Monday at Crooks and Liars, Stark Reports, as well as The Brad Blog, Breitbart, filmed by blogger Mike Stark at the recent CPAC convention, claims he did not know the facts about O'Keefe's pimp outfit.(See video below.)

Essentially, Breitbart claims he was duped like everyone else who saw the ACORN clips created by O'Keefe. He was duped because at the outset, the misleading clips contain cut-away shots filmed outdoors, which feature O'Keefe decked out in the cane-fur-sunglasses pimp costume.(Breitbart deceptively refers to the dressed-as-pimp section as the "title sequence" of the videos, but it's really much more than that.)

It appears that many viewers just assumed O'Keefe wore the get-up while he surreptitiously filmed the ACORN workers who ignited a scandal when they gave O'Keefe and his pretend prostitute girlfriend, Hannah Giles, tax advice on how to run a brothel.

The dressed-as-a-pimp storyline was one Breitbart, O'Keefe, and others eagerly pushed last fall. And it was one the press quickly embraced.(In truth, O'Keefe was often dressed rather conservatively -- slacks and dress shirt -- when he talked to ACORN staffers, and he often presented himself as a law school student and an aspiring politician trying to rescue his prostitute girlfriend from her abusive pimp.)

Why should President Obama be impeached for some conservative committing slander and libel

Nov. 4: Israel killed a mentally ill Palestinian walking near the Israeli-imposed “no-go zone” inside the Gaza Strip -- an event that triggered a rocket from Gaza into southern Israel, which did not cause any deaths or injuries.

· Nov. 10: In retaliation, two rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel, and an anti-tank missile injured four soldiers, when it hit an Israeli army jeep that had crossed over into the territory. Meanwhile, the Palestinian Center for Human Rights reported the killing of five more Palestinians, four of whom were civilians – including two soccer players age 16 and 17 and two young men (18 and 19) who ran to the scene. Forty-nine others were wounded, including 10 children.
· Nov. 11: Amid talks of a truce, six more Palestinians (all but one were civilians) were wounded and another was killed by both air strikes and troops on the ground.

Palestinian militants have fired 797 rockets into Israel in the course of 2012.

Between 2001 and January 2009, over 8,600 rockets have been launched leading to 28 deaths and several hundred injuries as well as widespread psychological trauma and disruption of daily life.

So what is Israel supposed to do, Lily? Duck and cover and wait for the next round of rockets?

What if a militant group (who nobody else wants) had fired 797 rockets on New York?

gotta love it when conservatives have to lie and take things completely out of context, because that is the only way they can make their case.....

Here’s the entire quote:

If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

clearly he is talking about our infrastructure, our public education system

if you have a business, you have the benefit of
police to protect you and your business
fire department to protect your home and your business
an EPA to provide you with clean air
sanitation department to remove your garbage
water department to provide you with clean drinking water
FDA to provide you with healthy food and safe drugs
oh my, does that mean we're socialists????

wow 8,600 rockets and only 28 deaths......
what's the death toll of Palestinians from Israeli attacks???

we kicked Saddam out of Kuwait for waging a war for territory, how come we haven't done anything about Israel seizing land in 1967???

Israel needs to get out of the West Bank and Gaza period
