Barack Obama, our next President

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?
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????

you know since the gov't is providing us with all that

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

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.
Your premiums cover somebody's stupid decision to smoke cigarettes 'til they got emphysema. You won't win this argument on logic, your kind don't do logic. Just jump up and down and shout you just don't like it! You'll feel better.

Proportionality and Gaza

I don’t think most Americans are indifferent to indiscriminate killing and disproportionate violence in war as a general rule, but like many other nations most Americans make exceptions for the conduct of the belligerent that we believe to be in the right. Conduct by one state or group that would earn “our” condemnation is defended or overlooked when committed by one of “ours.”

Pretty sure they would have had to stop at 1 rocket, since if they fired on New York, we'd have settled the "Israel / Palestine" question definitively, and with extreme prejudice, within hours.

Payback is hell.

Look up the Oslo Accords. Israel has bent over backwards trying to accommodate this rag-tag group of misplaced militants that even their own people don't want to absorb into Muslim countries.

Hamas began firing rockets into Israel almost immediately. Iran is behind Hamas you know. At least I assume you know.

My understanding is the number of rockets launched so far is in the area of 1,500 and only about 360 or so have required Israels defense rockets to be launched.
Just imagine how many civilian casualties there would have been if Israel did not have the Iron Dome in place.

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.

OUCH!
Why so consumed with Romney? Didn't you hear.....he lost?

I assume it makes sense really....hell libs are still blaming Bush for everything....now they have Romney too, gee Obama won't have to take responsibility for anything now, unless of course it makes him look good!

A tax cut puts more money in my pocket, and in your pocket.

Obama's plan included spending cuts.

Not to mention that it's probably viagra that's causing all these 65+ year old guys to start shooting at people. Bunch of old coots wandering around with a boner that no one wants!!

Remember this gem of a gent?

At some point you have to wonder whether some of these Republicans have never had the misfortune of seeing a loved one suffer the medical and financial horror of dealing with many forms of cancer. Or, of course, there is a possibility they have a heart about 10 sizes too small, or perhaps they are pod people. I don’t know, but Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) would qualify as an example (Think Progress):


Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) told ThinkProgress that there “shouldn’t” be a law requiring businesses to cover employees who have cancer because that would “create an obligation” for others.“When you create a right for somebody,” Johnson said,“you create an obligation for somebody else, and then you’re taking away that person’s right.”

KEYES: I know Richard Murdock had said even though businesses should give people, for instance, with cancer, health coverage, they shouldn’t be legally required by the federal government.

JOHNSON: They shouldn’t. Listen, our rights are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And when we start expanding beyond that realm, when you create a right for somebody, you create an obligation for somebody else, and then you’re taking away that person’s right. And that maybe doesn’t seem all that great, but it’s just true. Our nation was based on the foundation of freedom and limited government.

Poetic justice: Romney likely to finish at 47 percent

By Greg Sargent

When all the votes are counted, could Mitt Romney really end up achieving perfect poetic justice by finishing with 47 percent of the national vote? Yup. Dave Wasserman of the nonpartisan Cook Political Report says new votes in from Maryland put Romney at 47.56 percent. He predicts with certainty that with all of New York and California counted, Romney will end up below 47.5 percent of the vote.

Rounded, of course, that would put the final tally at 51-47. Anticipating this moment, Markos Moulitsas has inaugurated the “Romney 47 percent watch.”

At risk of piling on, a 47 percent finish would represent a perfect conclusion to the Romney political saga. If Romney ran a campaign of unprecedented dishonesty and lack of transparency, virtually all of it was geared towards misleading people about the true nature of his — and his party’s — actual beliefs and governing agenda. This was the case on multiple fronts, from Romney’s dissembling about the size of the tax cut he’d give to the rich, to his evasions about the overhaul he and Paul Ryan planned for the safety net, to the obscuring of the massive upward redistribution of wealth represented by the Ryan agenda — the GOP’s central governing blueprint for nation’s fiscal and economic future.
