Barack Obama, our next President

GOP Furious That Obama Is Acting Like He Won The Election

""On Thursday, Republicans immediately rejected the president’s opening offer to resolve the so-called “fiscal cliff” issue.

According to Republicans who leaked the bid, President Obama would cut $4 trillion from the deficit, including $400 billion in Medicare savings and $1.6 trillion in revenue from first ending Bush tax breaks on the top earners, capital gains and dividends, and then tax reform. He also called for action to create jobs in payroll tax cuts, unemployment benefit extensions and $50 billion in infrastructure spending and a new mortgage-refinancing program.

Basically the president is asking for exactly what he campaigned on.""

Gramps when will you ever come to grips with reality? Obama won because he was the better candidate. The days of republican wine and roses are over the reality is unless republicans run a viable candidate not a rich mans puppet they will never win.That is the facts.
Looks like Tax and Spend is back!

I say let all the Bush/Obama tax cuts expire and go back to the overtaxation of the Clinton Era. China and India say they have room for more investment. Besides, we all know that the Bush tax cuts were all for the rich folks with the poor unwashed working class getting minminal relief.

When polled, 99.9% prefer that the other guy pays taxes.
California's Proposition 8? A majority voted to not allow the minority of kweers to marry. Now the courts will overturn the outcome based on the premise that a majority can't vote to restrict the rights of a minority. How is that different than the majority slacker have nots voting to tax the minority ambitious haves?
BTW, the Dems gained in both the Senate and House.

And same sex marriage is the new Civil Rights issue.

The Mormons came down from Utah and spent a fortune to defeat the gay marriage bill. Explains why Rmoney did so poorly there.

But oit's not a voting issue. It's a Civil Rights issue. The Constitution does not allow referendums on Civil Rights.

You didn't get to vote on women voting. Ypu didn't get to vote on desegregating the military. You didn't get to vote on Civil Rights for minorities.

Same sex marriage is legal in CT, your home state. Why don't you vote with your feet and leave??

Meanwhile, other states have approved gay marriage. It is now legal in 9 states!! A good start.

The Supremes will find Gay Marriage Constitutional.

End of story.

Figures an old coot like you would still be viewing it through 1950's lenses.

AN AMERICAN TALE: "I, THADDEUS J. MOUSE, DO HEARBY SWEAR THAT WHAT I AM ABOUT TO TELL IS THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH.

MY FAMILY ESCAPED THE TANKS IN CHEKOSLOVAKIA BY MERE INCHES. BACK THEN THE FAMILY NAME WAS MOUSEKOWITZ AND WE HAD BEEN CHEESE MERCHANTS TO THE ROYAL FAMILY FOR CENTURIES.

IT WAS BELIEVED THAT WE WERE UNTOUCHABLE IN OUR HOMELAND BECAUSE WE MADE THE FINEST, CREAMIEST CHEES IN ALL EUROPE.
WE ONLY USED COW-SPERM OR DEVONSHIRE CREAM TO MAKE OUR CHEESES AND IT WAS AGREED THAT NO FINER, CREAMIER, THICKER, MILKIER, WHITER, GOOIER, YEASTY, DIRTY CHEESE EXISTED ON THE PLANET.

BUT THEN CAME THE SOCIALISTS AND ALL THAT CHANGED. FIRST, THEY ARRESTED MY FATHER AND MOTHER. THEY TOLD THEM TO ARRIVE AT POLICE HEADQUARTERS THE NEXT DAY BECAUSE THEY HAD WON THE LOTTERY. BUT THERE WAS NO LOTTERY, IT WAS A TRAP! STILL, PROPELLED BY SIMPLE GREED THE BOTH WENT DOWN TO THEIR DOOM HAPPILY.

MY SISTERS AND I WERE FORCED TO WATCH AS MOM AND DAD WERE PARADED THROUGH THE STREETS IN A HAVE-A-HEART CAGE. I SHUDDER TO THINK OF WHAT EVENTUALLY HAPPENED TO THEM BUT WHEN I CLOSE MY EYES AT NIGHT I DREAM OF KATZ.

If nothing else, my coming here forces Carol to get off her fat azz and do something.

I show up, and 'poof', she disappears!!

I'm lovin it!!

Prior to my arrival today, she was deep into justifying Bush's disasterous war in Iraq.

The same war that is responsible for all the unrest in the Middle East.

Bush opened Pandora's Box, just as he was warned. The results shattered the old order in the ME, with the after affects still roiling the region.

Bush was warned, but he even supported the Palestinian elections!! Which put Hamas in charge of Gaza.

We see how that turned out!!

Yet Carol continues to defend the worst President in American History. The man responsible for the Great Recession and collapse of the financial sector in 2008.

No cure for her sort of FAUX driven ignorance!

Yep__Allen West is out and Mr "giterdone" Alan Grayson is going back to Washington.

Some here may recall that Grayson is a fkn genius when it comes to health care legalities and military contracting and also that lobbyists avoid Grayson out of fear of being called ugly names.

He's been selected as regional congressional whip__not sure what that is really but it sounds pretty cool.

Sure that's the reason? Look around.

You're smarter than to believe you're the reason.

But, there IS a reason.

"There are three kinds of intelligence: one kind understands things for itself, the other appreciates what others can understand, the third understand neither for itself nor through others. The first kind is excellent, the second good, and the third useless".
~Niccolo Machiavelli

Save a few left: You, Grampy, Me ... I'd say the "third kind" has infested this thread.

Have A Good Day!
