No...Immediately following one of the Presidential Debates between McCain and the Boy Messiah, both couples passed each other exiting the stage. The men shook hands but as the two wives passed, Cindy McCain reached her hand out to Moochelle. The Ice Queen From Hell didn't even make eye contact with Cindy. She ignored the extended hand and brusquely walked past.
There is nothing gracious walking inside the White House today. There are but two political animals hiding their fangs as best they can along with the help of the complacent and committed media. So stop with the fairy tale approach. Save it for the kids.
"Shinning" once again allows no lie to be unrepeated. "God no....are you kidding me??? Michelle was talking to voters, she didn't snub anyone. Rewatch the tape...McCain snubbed Obama, no one else on either side did any snubbing." Are you and carol related?

All I want to know is what is he planning to cut in his balanced approach.
I've asked three liberals that question so far and none of them had an answer.
Which means they don't have a clue either like the rest of us.
Obama considers tax increases to be "spending cuts."

So you figure it out.

Sounds like FEMA is doing a good job of turning middle-class homeowners into welfare residents of homeless shelters.
If I was living on the East Coast having to deal with FEMA, I would be fit to be tied. I saw a video where a lady was crying to that idiot Chuckee Schumer - the jerk with a permanent shit-eatin' smirk on his face - and saying what so many others are saying: FEMA is a lost cause and nothing but an irritation to down-and-out citizens. And Chuckee Babee pats her on the shoulder and smiles.

This is so sad to see inside of America. I'd like to see the Boy Messiah up to his knees in filth and freezing his azz off and have someone pat him on the shoulders and smile.

<quoted text>Actually Obama has added less to the debt than any President in the past 60 years. His spending has added only 1.4%. The debt problem would be growing at the rate current no matter who the President was until Washington stops it. It's hard to stop when 10,000 people per day turn 65 and $2 Billion per week is spent on war.

These are preliminary figures and require updating (as of November 16, 2012). There was a total of 45 new seats picked up by both parties, 29 of which were gained by Democrats and 16 Republican, for a Democratic net gain of 13 seats.

maybe you should stop listening to Faux news or stop lying. President Obama's offer included $400 billion in cuts to entitlement programs
"WASHINGTON -- Republicans in Congress reacted angrily to an Obama administration proposal delivered Thursday by Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner that offered to avert the fiscal cliff by raising $1.6 trillion in new taxes, in exchange for some $400 billion in cuts to entitlement programs to be negotiated next year.
But the proposal wasn't new. The offer that has Republicans furious was presented to them earlier this month by President Barack Obama at the White House, according to a well-placed Democratic source, and confirmed by two GOP sources involved in the talks. "

let's try and stick to the facts, k?
"...in exchange for some $400 billion in cuts to entitlement programs to be negotiated next year."

This is called kicking the can down the road - again - and again - and again...

"Meet the Press:

Obama has proposed giving 100% of American tax payers a tax break by making the Bush tax cuts permanent on the first $250,000 of income.

Republicans are insisting that 100% of American tax payers incur a tax increase if the 4 cents on a dollar Bush tax cut for those earning more than $250,000 is not extended. And they accuse Democrats of failure to compromise. It's laughable.

Hey Boehner! Where's the Republican counter proposal?"

The people of New York are responsible for the politicians that they elected.

FEMA is useless except as a loan-processing agency.

Any place else in the country, self-reliant people would have made much greater progress in recovery. New Yorkers are victims of the nanny state.

So the people of New York need to rebuild on their own. Move back into their homes if at all inhabitable. If unions or government inspectors get in their way, deal with them by any means necessary.
