Shouldn't you be outside harassing homeless people??

You lost, Jane. Quit whining like the loser you are.

STFU, deal with it, move on.

All your nastiness and racism didn't change anything. You were still proven to be an out of touch nitwit.

Well, coming from someone who has exemplified the same characteristics of which you accuse me in almost every post, I'm not the least bit surprised, leosnana.

But Homer didn't mean it.

You once posted about a Sunday dinner trip to Aunt Catfish in Port Orange and gave it a mmm-mmm-mmm. I almost upchucked thinking about the triple breaded double deep fried shyte that place serves to seniors and those who can't wait to be seniors.

You should be very careful calling someone else a fool. You voted for Obama.
As did a majority of Americans.

You and Rmoney are the 47%!! LOL

The majority is always right, it's the American way!!

You voted for the loser, that makes you the fool by definition.

Even in FL, you're in the minority. More proof that you're the fool!! You and Allen West!!

I'm lovin' it!! Your desperation to claim something, anything out of an election you clearly got demolished in, that is!!

Your analysis of Greece and social democracy was right on the mark.
However, your figure about the cost Medicare Part D was off the charts. The CBO estimated the cost at $724 billion. A far cry from $7 trillion.
Obamacare will cost $1.7 trillion. A far cry from $724 billion.
Obama increased the deficit by $6 trillion under his watch which exceeded Bush's entire 8 years.
The numbers always stack up against Obama far more than Bush. As much as some would like to believe otherwise.
Though everything you say may be true, one must first look at the economic situation of both when 1st entering office. Bush came in with nearly a 6 trillion dollar surplus on the american credit card, so before you start tallying up his debt/deficit, you have to acknowledge the fact that he blew 6 trillion first. Obama came in at the height of a recession that started under bush. In americas under world there's a saying you have to spend money to make. Same thing holds true in mainstream america. Obama had to spend money to stop americas decline. We were on the brink of a drop depression. Two different economic climates. One spent money recklessly for no reason, the other spent money to save america from the failed economic policies of the other. VERY BIG DIFFERENCE SIR!!!

You missed Karl Rove's nervous breakdown on live TV??
They lied to you and you believed it. That makes you a sucker!!
Romney never held a lead, it was all FAUX propaganda. The momentum story was bogus.
Because if either were true, Rmoney would have won the election.i
See Nate Silver's polls, the only one that proved correct both before and after votes were counted.
Your claim that a photo op after Sandy destroyed all Rmoney's lead and momentum is so dumb, only you could come up wirth such a weak idea.
There was never a chance that Rmoney could win. Obama 'gave' him the first debate to keep it from becoming a complete rout well before the election.
If not for that, Rmoney would have lost by 8 Million votes, not the 4.5 Million he won by.

Is editing the CIA report by scratching out al Qaeda and sending out a mouthpiece to lie to the American public a farce too?

Anyone who has read the transcripts, and not just listened to FAUX propaganda would know that there was not enough time to get help to Benghazi. THis is repported by the Military and the CIA.

Here's the deal. You nitwits lost the election, and in your desperation, you attack Obama for Behghazi, when it was not within his powers to do anything in time. DUH

But when you've lost as badly as your side did, you lash out at anything.

Like the attacks on Susan Rice. It''s got nothing to do with Susan Rice, it's that Republiclowns want Obama to pick Kerry for Sec. of State, so they can run Scott Brown and hpefully pick up a seat.

It;s not going to work. Obama will push Susan Rice right down McCain and gay Lindsey Graham's throats.

Elections have consequences, and the Republiclowns are holding no currency after Obama's big win!!

(nobody can win with 8% unemployment, right??)

(the Supreme Court will find Obamacare unConstitutional)

(we're going to make Obama a one term President)

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Is Affirmative Action even around any more? I tend to think it's simply a term used by losers (like lorac and Jane) to explain why, one again, they didn't get into a first rate college or ever get the job...like all those "crimes" for which the criminal said "Some black dude did it."
