<quoted text>Wrong! She LIED under orders from the administration to help Obama conceal his incompetence. They thought the public would fall for it and forget about the incident, but even after Fox News reported the truth three days later, the administration continued the coverup and the lies. This is why Susan Rice should never be nominated for anything and Obama should be removed from office as soon as possible.
And the "investigation" continues! Why was it that they could certainly get all the info on the usama bin laden endeavor and all that it encompassed, but three freaking months later, they still can't figure out, who said it was because of a freaking video that the whole Benghazi incident occurred. Same goes for "fast and furious" fiasco. We are to believe that such an incompetent display of responsibility is supposed to "lead" us out of an supposed fiscal cliff, or get the country back on the right course? Common liberals, say something, for once admit that the current administration is committing a disappointing effort or lack of. For once I would like someone on the left to stand up! Tell it like it is, hold your govt accountable, it's ok, we all see it. Plenty of liberals out there to vote in the next communist. So, 2016 should be assured.

Like there's been any extra dollars in the pockets of the middle class WORKING people since opotus has been prezidink too...the ones that still have jobs anyway.
Yeah, right.
Idiots.
Actually stupid, the Making Work Pay Tax Credit was a major part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and did put extra money into workers pockets.
Do you honestly think that your "creative" spelling makes you look clever? It doesn't it makes you look like your intellectual development stalled at fourteen years old.

Would this be like the way that Obama bought the votes of the losers in this country by offering more government handouts?
What handouts you goddamned liar? Aid to education? Access to healthcare? Safe and efficient infrastructure? You know, all the things that make a country strong.
Romney however wanted to give handouts to the rich by cutting taxes on investment income and eliminating the estate tax that only affects only estates in excess of $5.1 million.
You're an idiot.

More sad rhetoric from the left. Tax the evil rich and give the money to the righteous poor. You guys seem to be far more familiar with FOX news that those who you accuse of watching it. Once again HYPOCRITE thy name is liberal.
Another false assumption from the ignorant right that those of us on the left think that all rich people are evil. It all depends on how you get rich. If you come up with a product or service that people buy and adds to the economy by hiring workers and paying them fairly then we have no problem with that.
If on the other hand you get rich like Mitt Romney by destroying other companies and shipping jobs overseas or like the Walton family paying your workers crap wages and flooding the market with cheap Chinese goods and in the process drive local businesses out then yes we consider that evil.

Each dollar spent on "infrastructure" adds one dollar to the debt, while less than 50 cents is spent on actual infrastructure, with the majority going to government overhead.
And you have some actual data to back this up? Of course you don't you're just pulling it out of your azz as usual.

You don't even know the facts concerning the folks who were killed.
Navy Seals?? Working as contractors for the CIA?? How's that work??
Where do you get your material?? FAUX Comedy Station??
I just now got it.

I'd assumed FNC stood for Fox "News"s Channel but it must be Fox "News" Comedy ...

It all makes so much sense now, I feel pretty dumb.

It's a little over 4 years since this first post was made creating this thread. I guess it just goes to show what Idiots think. Our country STILL has the lowest tax rates in generations, the defense budget is still higher than it's been since WWII and not 1 person has been killed in the 50 states as a result of a terrorist attack.

Republicans not handling election results well
PPP's first post election national poll finds that Republicans are taking the results pretty hard...and also declining in numbers.
49% of GOP voters nationally say they think that ACORN stole the election for President Obama. We found that 52% of Republicans thought that ACORN stole the 2008 election for Obama, so this is a modest decline, but perhaps smaller than might have been expected given that ACORN doesn't exist anymore.

So are you saying you, too, like RealDave, believe Obama and the health care monstrosity won't cost the taxpayers one thin dime?
Because that's the journey to which I was referring. Of course, RealDave believes it's already paid for.
Please tell me you've gone further than that.
Not at all. I'm just saying you're fairly simple and need things put simply.

You're welcome.

Let's talk about the fiscal cliff "negotiations".

The New York Times’ John Cassidy:
“After being behind in the national polls for most of October,[Obama] has now re-established a narrow lead. While there are a number of possible explanations for this turnaround, the most convincing is the simplest: his handling of Sandy has raised his standing, and his poll ratings.”
A Pew poll taken before the hurricane showed Romney and Obama neck-and-neck at 47% but the same polling firm had Obama ahead of Romney 48%-45% post-Sandy.

No, you commented that Mathews didn't even make the list, you'd better go read the results again.

BTW, you're referencing a poll that's a year and a half old. If you check PPP's poll last month Fox "News" was tied with itself as both the most trusted and least trusted news source. It goes to show you that there is balance in the Bell Curve, just as many stupid people as there are smart people.

I'm tellin' ya as a concerned friend, get checked out for dementia.

"dumos"
You are a perfect example of a liberal;
- You are a liar
- You slur and demean those who dare disagree with you, particularly females
- Have an exaggerated opinion of your intelligence
- Loves government control in your life
- Believe that those who work hard, produce and prosper should be penalized
- Believe that president nobama represents the second coming
In a a few words you are; dull, boring, not very bright, a parrot and a hypocrite.

I take issue with this sheep dip. I'm equally demeaning whether the poster be male or female.

When their all mighty hope government goes bankrupt they will personally come for your stuff, like in China, and you must defend your stuff from those who think your hard earned money belongs to them liberals!!!
It's always a white dude out of the crowd to say some dumshit about guns. I can tell your from a rural country area. No neighbors for at least a mile. 1 things for sure & 2 things for certain, you ain't got enough family members & weapons to stop a bunch of hungry people with weapons. Ya'll act like they stopped making guns when they made yours. Thus ain't the 30s to the 60s. Everybody got guns! Your best strategical move is to share & compromise or you sir won't last very long!

Liked Herman Cain. Liked Newt Ginghrich. Would have paid big money to see Newt debate Obama. Still would.
Romney is what we got, but I also voted for him in 2008, and compared to another four years, Romney should have been a no brainer.
Cain, Newt and even Trump would have been a no brainer.
Have to give credit where credit's due. You're absolutely correct, voting for either Cain, Newt, or Trump for President would have required no brain at all.

Of course they do, silly. That's what folks like Demos/Tenzing/Nucular live for.
You're confused again, your the one that wants the ginormous government spending your great grandchildren's birthright. You demand the government undertake this bizarre profitless imperialism, you demand the government not expect anyone to pick up the tab, least of all the ones who've profited most, so on and so forth ...

You'll have to jog my memory. Who touted religious fundamentalism in this last election?
The liberal machine always pulls out the abortion issue when they have nothing else to run on. You actually pointed out the obvious - and the conundrum - in the Democrat Party.
A lot of black democrats ARE "church-folk" and many are against abortion and gay marriage. Yet, the majority still voted for Obama. Just like the "church-folk" Hispanics.
Two obscure republicans opened their mouths and put their foot in it. They were ostricized...by republicans.
There's nothing wrong with saying you're pro-life as a republican. And I don't recall any republican presidential candidate going any further than that.
Here's a jog ...

Your ass-clown club threw a hissyfit about whether or not "God" was in the Democratic platform and the Dems, true to form, embarrassingly bent over backwards to accommodate your crazies.
