I love Obama. He is doing a great job. He is strong and can relate to struggles. He has a strong woman by his side.

Nobody's forced to work at McDonalds. Here's an idea. Get an education, get off the crack pipe and do something to better yourself and maybe you can own a McDonalds franchise someday. Stop worrying about your friends accusing you of "tryin' to be white."

You don't like Laura Ingraham because she's too old for you. You don't do anything over 12.

Look when referring to Pennsylvannia, whomever said you have Philly and Pittsburgh with Alabama in between was correct. Well except for maybe Easton/Allentown/Bethlehem, Lancaster(large gay population) and I suppose the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area.

so the next time i pull up next to some rednecks in a truck with a confederate flag in the back window who are playing some ungodly C&W crap as loud as they can turn it up, i should just pull out the .45 and empty the clip?
thing is, i never carry. i don't live in fear of anything or anyone. those who would take advantage can smell fear. a gun is just a prerequisite.
Pull a .45 on truck full of rednecks and you might be in for a big surprise.

Yeah but like the rest of them, want to rule man out of the equation because it doesn't match up with ideolgy that is dated as the ice age. Get used to the super storms and extremes of hot & cold because of your inaction to do anything about it. Now it looks like it is too late. What a legacy to leave the planet for your kids, in pursuit of greed over nature.

Obama to take fiscal cliff case on the road

President Obama will travel to Pennsylvania this week to publicly make his pitch on unwinding the combination of tax increases and spending cuts that will automatically happen on Jan. 1.

According to a White House official, Obama will visit a manufacturing plant of the Rodon Group in Hatfield, Pa. on Friday — a toy company that makes Tinkertoy, K’NEX Building Sets and Angry Bird Building Sets, among other things.

It's part of a week of outreach to various constituent groups on the so-called fiscal cliff — a week that includes meetings with business leaders and an event with middle-class Americans.

According to a White House official, Obama will make the case that the uncertainty over the fiscal cliff standoff will impact consumer spending this holiday season and will cause a plunge in retail sales if taxes go up next year.

A recent report produced by the Council of Economic Advisers and the National Economic Council estimated that retail spending could fall by $200 billion if taxes go up on the middle class.

The trip to Pennsylvania also mirrors Obama's successful strategy to extend the payroll tax in 2011 — where Obama very publicly made the case for his approach on the payroll tax, spurring Congress to act.

I HOPE AND PRAY THAT WE GO OVER THE fiscal cliff!!!!!THIS IS WHAT THE DEM WANT,SO BE IT,BRING
IT ON!!!!!!!!!!TAX,TAX,TAX AND SPEND TO PAY HEALTHY PEOPLE NOT TO WORK!!!!!!THE USA HAS LOST ITS MIND!!!!!!!!!!

Sure, Dunn claimed that a sawed off shotgun was pointed at him but Jacksonville Attorney Gene Nichols stated that there was no evidence that anyone in the SUV was armed. After the shooting Dunn instead of sticking around for the police fled the scene and left the jurisdiction the next day. That's hardly the actions of someone who's innocent.

Actually, there was a glimmer of hope in 2010. But the democrats in the Senate decided to maintain the status quo at all costs - even to the point of refusing to vote on a House passed budget.
So, you'll be glad to know I'm perfectly fine.
Can't wait until your taxes go up. It will be painful for all of us but at least it will prove who's really dumb.
Glimmer of hope for whom nitwit? For the wealthiest for sure since the GOP budget included more tax cuts for them. The middle class and the poor, not so much since the budget cut programs that affect them. Catholic bishops, a conservative group if there ever was one called the GOP budget immoral.
Democrats are the ones who want to keep taxes low on the middle class because they're the ones that take that money and spend it stimulating the economy. The President ran on the platform of taxing the wealthy more and he won. Exit polls indicated that most Americans including a sizable number of Republicans agree with this.
