Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

Really, 9-11!!! Bush is resolved did no wrong.

How about reducing revenues at a time of war & expansion of government.

Yep, we need to spend hundreds of billions so lets cut hundreds of billions on revenues. Brilliant!!!!!

How about wasting hundreds of billions in Iraq. How about unfunded expansions top Medicare.

Record Earmarks.

Bush could have rallied this country to pay for that expansion to protect the homeland.

He could have gone after Bin Laden in Afghanistan without committing us to over a decade of war & nation building.

Here is a fact.

The fact is that we had a balanced budget & were on a path to paying down the debt,.

The exact same thing you bitch about not having every freaking day of your miserable life.

And yet you are too stupid to know it. Too stupid to admit why we no longer have it.

Instead all you do is blame Obama & the Democrats.

How GD pathetic can you get.

If you actually believe the crap you post, you would never ever vote for anther Republican.

If they do that, they will become the scapegoats and labeled the party of "no".

They need to become the party of "you own it". It would paralyze a lot of democrats since many are seeking reelection, unlike Obama.

This gridlock hurts republicans more than democrats. They should say "since no one's listening to us, we're outta here" and make sure the American public knows which party is the only one playing this no-win game.

If the majority want what the democrats offer, let them have it. All of it. The republicans can say we didn't have a thing to do with it. They can offer the same solutions that were rejected.

It's going to have to get really bad before people realize their mistake. Blaming republicans are what democrats are counting on.

That's what they do.

Republicans can't be blamed if they tell Americans, "We went along with what the majority wanted...but maybe now you'll listen to us."

So, if you have $280K after taxes instead of $250K after taxes, did or dot not the change in tax code give you an extra $30K
You right whiners are dumber than sh*t.
No it did not. This is where your brainwashing kicks in. What it means is the government is not taking $30K more of your money. It does not belong to the government in the first place so the government cannot give it to you. To imply that the government does in fact own everything is a very dangerous road to travel.

You see the word 'give' is where you go wrong.

As soon as you libtards realize that we can move on to solving some problems. Until then we will go from one supposed crisis after another.
The one thing I know for sure is this. We are on a train, not a car, headed down an end-of-line track and not only are we not applying the brakes but we are pouring on the coal.
Sorry, I couldn't get past 'Having faced reality my whole life without the blinders' as I was laughing too hard.

Don't know exactly who you're talking about...but compassionate conservatives care about people who are really in need.

Compassionate progressives are gullible and easy to manipulate.

No I wish there was a better choice. I liked Gary Johnson and wish he had a chance to win. I had to vote for Romney simply because he would not have done as much damage as Obama is going to do. Johnson, if I remember right is a FairTaxer. I would rather have someone who supports that in there.

Carol, always late for the party. We are discussing Bush and his failed presidency, Flack noted that compassionate conservative(Bush referred to himself as one)= progressive but freely admitted he voted for him twice. To which Tenzing duly noted that Flack has a history of voting for progressives.

Flack then went on to say that 9/11 and muslim terrorist attacks all over the world cost us 6 trillion dollars.

To which Tenzing Rebutted - "Where "all over the world" were they killing Americans?
Your other implication, that 9/11 cost $6 trillion is just absurd."

I believe that should bring you up to speed.

I and others were also discussing music, guitars, basses, sound rooms and the like.

You do realize those tax cuts you rail about is mostly to the poor and middle class right. These numbers are close but not exact but the tax cuts for the poor and middle class was something like $1.6 trillion and for the 'rich' was $500 billion. So who is causing the deficit more the 'rich' or the poor and middle class?

I voted for Clinton twice too but he is not a progressive. His wife is but he isn't.

Somebody needs to tell Obama the election is over. He can stop campaigning now.

1. More fatalities occur "each day" from auto accidents then occur from terrorism for the "whole year".
(1.2 million deaths per year Worldwide)

2. More fatalities occur worldwide each year from animal attacks then occur from terrorism.
( Stats for US Only 1882)

3. More fatalities occur each year from falling down stairs (falling down) then occur from terrorism.
( Just for the Netherlands 1700 deaths in 1999)

4. More fatalities occur "each day" from medical malpractice then occur from terrorism for the "whole year".
( US stats Only - 120,000 deaths worldwide 1.4 million)

Maybe we should declare war on autos, animals, stairs and doctors.

Call me what you want you nutcase birther, I just believe he was born in Hawaii and is a U.S. citizen, ya birther freak.

The rest is just twisted logic, you act like Obama created welfare.
Bush put us in this bind with his rediculous spending, unfunded tax cuts, unfunded wars and as Homer has noted on several occasions the spending does not reset to zero when a new guy takes office.

Yes moran but those four are not acts of war. They are for the most part accidents and not intentional acts of destruction like attacking a US warship with an explosive laden boat.
