It's a much different climate with a $16 trillion debt. It's a much different climate with class warfare. It's a much different climate with the number of jobless, with the private sector under attack and an economy that's teetering on a fiscal cliff.
No it isn't, the climate is strikingly similar to the climate of the 50's. What's different is that you have a major "news" outlet telling you the climate is different. Where are all these rich folk going to emigrate to where they'll pay lower taxes and enjoy the benefits they enjoy here? Who else has run up their entitlement and infrastructure and war credit card tab to over 100% of GDP? They can just stay here and continue to ride the gravy train on the backs of future generations. Of course, buying $300k in Greek bonds gets them an EU passport if they're so inclined. Know anybody that wants to move to Greece?

You learned that Obama was a "proven failure" from the fiction out of Fox "News". Raw economic data said the opposite. I tried to tell you but you always fall back on the last thing Fox told you. Really, you should buy one of those TV's that get more than one channel.
You'd have to provide some stats to prove the opposite.

Unless a little good news here and there over the past four years was good enough for you.

And the next four years will be even better under Obama's plan.

I called you stupid. Unemployment was at or above 6% for all of 1958. Now the question is, did you even know we had a recession in 1958? You knew we had a depression in the 30's but what do you know beyond that? In 2112 the 2008 collapse will still be in textbooks.
All anyone has to do is look at that BLS website I posted to see for themselves that you're just kooky.

I'm sure it sounded poetic and profound to you.
"Only two kinds of people are gonna stay on this beach: those that are already dead and those that are gonna be dead."
You are sure of a lot of unreal things. Confidence, to a moron, comes as a Death Wish so watch your step. Pigeons who try strutting like a Rooster are cat food.

What I consider poetic and profound is truly poetic and profound. To you, they are letters handled by Vanna White.

Poetry and Profundity can only be found in the wide open depths of pathos but, unfortunately, even in those depths, we find the likes of you as bottom feeders and in the shallows as clueless consumers. Like the poor, they will always be among us.

I've been providing you stats for years, you just chose the Fox Swill over real data. This has pretty much been the story all along:

But after all this time you still don't know that you can't post the result of a form query from BLS so anybody that opened your link got bupkiss.

Why not? You do it everytime you tune in to FOX
Okay, let's see if you answer these questions honestly:

Can you strengthen the weak by weakening the strong?

Can you lift the wage earner by pulling down the wage payer?

Can you help the poor by destroying the rich?

Can you further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred?

Yes or No?

Your question was what cuts Obama proposed. I showed you his proposed cuts and you lolled them around on your tongue long enough to completely wipe them.

You can when you wrap it in a lie, you idiots would never quote the honorable William John Henry Boetcker, he's not in your lexicon. Y'all are well known for false attributions. Hell, Newt had y'all convinced there were no such things as "Palestinians" but your own Bible proved him wrong.
That's just a bunch of hogwash. How can that list published by someone you acknowledge as credible be wrapped in a lie if he wrote them?

You just keep backing yourself in a corner for argument's sake.

FOX n Friends can justify the election loss however they like, but it's still a lie...just like when they claimed Romney/Ryan in a landslide...you know, all polls were skewed Democrat LOLOLOLOL
Kneejerk reaction with a strong emphasis on the "Jerk" part.

Ever hear of Pavlov's Dog?

Here's how it works: I point to a dog-pile dropped by the Boy Messiah and you immediately begin salivating and do a Bush-Bash Stupid Pet Trick!

Say hi to Pavlov for me, jerk:}

<quoted text>Its ironic that college students and young adults supported Obama. Eventually, enough years will pass until the blame Bush excuse doesn't cut it when they are still living in their parents basements and working at McDonalds.
They are so hoping Obama will pay off their student loans...at our expense...whether they have a job or not.

The problem has always been Obama doesn't see government and taxpayers as one and the same.

You got all upset about the Trail of Tears, aren't you going to shed a tear now for Bosnian rape victims?
The question is are you going to shed a tear for the tortured women and children in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait.

I didn't have a problem going into Bosnia for humanitarian reasons.
