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

"Revenue" and tax rates are not the same thing.
And they will not agree to more revenue without spending reductions.
The pledge your right whiner leaders took involved raising taxes. This went a lot further than tax rates.

Things like closing loopholes are considered tax increases if they increase the overall revenue.

Republicans are trying to redefine their ledge to mean rate increases but that would be just another lie.

Homer and his peeps simply refuse to accept that Democrats:
1. Gave Bush permission to go into Iraq based on the same information they all were privy to.
2. Voted to fund the war.
3. Had nothing whatsoever to do with the housing market crisis.
It will always be one man's fault in their eyes...only Bush...and no one else but Bush.
In 2016, it will still be all Bush's fault...only Bush...and no one else but Bush.
1. based on lies
2. fund it? fund it how? tax cuts for the rich?
3. It was a culmination of his failed policies, tax cuts for the rich, massive spending and debt, lax oversight, and a couple of unfunded wars.

Bush was an unmitigated disaster, a total debacle, the worst of the worst, the Calamity Jane of presidents.

He brought this country to it's knees, then as we were just about stood upright and the tea baggers came along.

Catholic school kids "integrated" to public school in 9th grade, if I remember correctly. They really were wild for the first few years; never shared stories, but we made up quite a few about their experiences. I don't believe there were many nuns teaching in farm town Missouri then.

RealDave I guess we should Pledge to Obama’s Transformation of America…Right!! He really cares 1/6 Americans in Poverty, 23 million unemployed, 16 trillion in debt, Americans celebrating Thanksgiving in a Soup Lines now that’s Liberals Compassion!! Dave is this what Liberals/Democrats call Equal Outcome?
I guess you're an idiot.

1) No one said there should be equal outcome. That was just another right wing lie.

2) There was no pledge top Obama's plans. Another lie you told.

You & your idiot party tried to blame Obama for the effects of the Bush recession & guess what. You got your ass kicked.

That lie don't fly now & didn't fly then.

Yet YOUR party did sign that Norquist pledge & held it above the good of the country.

Ah! Thats what it is huh? Whiteman don't own this president so no more tax breaks for the wealthy. Now you want to spew hate & lies like that helped ya'll in the past. You do remember the election outcome right? You do remember how every poll in the book had romney winning with likely voters, all lies! Even though ya'll republicans/business owners felt the closeness of the election you started lying & actually playing dirty with your own american people. Even though ya'll tried to sabotage the economy & jobs rate%, the jobs rate still rose. And thats with a loss of 500,000 private sector jobs. It takes a leader with a clear vision of how he sees the future. Too good mitt has cataracts& couldn't see the furore right in front his rich face. Bottom line, yea we own putting the president in office & back in office, but we dont own him. Can't say the same for past republican presidents. They were owned by people like you thats why we needed change & we got it.

<quoted text>I think I already read here today that 2016 isn't enough time for anyone to fix what Bush supposedly messed up. Excuses, Excuses along with amnesia of who was running Congress for four solid years when everything either fell apart or got worse. It is like they already know Obama will fail. But, but, but he reads from a teleprompter really, really well. And likes gay marriage and free contraception for all and will punish the wealthy and ahchieve world peace by decimating the military. And he was way cooler than Romney.

<quoted text>It was a crazy mixed up world way back when.
No sht__at my school teachers had a break room smoking lounge and students had to leave property to fire up but there was a tavern nearby where teachers and 18 year old students would drink beer and shoot pool after school. Speaking of shooting__my school had a shooting and an archery club and it was not odd to see rifles and archery equip being put in lockers on the mornings those clubs met.

No pistols, no shotguns and the ammo was dished out at the nearby range but there were rifles ranging from Marlin 22's all the way up to 30 cal. being toted around.

Of course most boys carried some sort of knives and all the girls carried scissors.

Not many smokers in my HS circle__farm route kids spend a lot of time around their parents__not many secrets.

I read a person's name and draw my own conclusions.
Take Carol for instance, definitely female, unless one thinks Carroll O'Connor playing Archie Bunker, hmmm so in that sense I suppose Carol could be a man.
Of course Peppy could be female name until you read his posts and then just assume he is a little light in the loafers.
I think I've digressed far enough.
What was the question?
Don't ya' think I would have spelled it "Carroll" if I were a man?

Then again, you still think it's all Bush's fault.

No surprise...your confusion about less important things, I mean.

55. And yeah they hit us with rulers, their hands, pointers, you name it. An angry bunch of women. Both my parents smoked, Lucky Strikes and Pall Mall. My father passed a long time ago but my mother is 81 and still smokes! We took her in with us 3 years ago so she has cut down alot,,we give her a hard time, but she'll never give em up. Mad Men is exactly what it used to be like. Brings back memories.
Well, if it hasn't killed her yet, let her have her guilty pleasure. My father never smoked but always had a "highball" before dinner.
My best friend went to Catholic boarding school, she said the nuns would get drunk at night and chase each other around the hallways!
We had a convent a few blocks from my house and the nuns in habits would walk to the school each day. Those habits were pretty cool.
I was the only Lutheran in the neighborhood, had to wait outside on Saturday while my friends went to "confession"
