This new 'DA DEBIL' seems more apologetic and thoughtful than the older version 'THE DEBIL'.

Homer misses the old DEBIL.

That's usually the way it works anyway. But we're not in Kansas anymore.
It doesn't feel like we're in America anymore. Equal opportunity has been replaced with Guaranteed Outcome to be "fair."

Obama, Democrats on top again in latest poll on ‘fiscal cliff’ crisis

Another national poll is out Thursday that shows Democrats winning the battle of perception on the "fiscal cliff" crisis.

Fifty-three percent of registered voters told Quinnipiac University's Polling Institute that they believe the president and his party will make a "good-faith effort to cooperate with the Republicans" to avoid the fiscal cliff—the series of automatic spending cuts and tax increases set to go into effect Jan. 1. Thirty-eight percent of respondents disagreed with that statement.

Respondents by a wider margin—53 to 36 percent—said they trusted the president and Democrats more than Republicans to avoid the fiscal cliff.

The poll's margin of error was plus or minus 2.2 percentage points.

Quinnipiac's findings follow a survey released this week by The Washington Post and the Pew Research Center that found Americans were more likely to blame Republicans than Democrats if Congress failed to reach a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff.

Even with Fox News championing their every move Republicans still cannot get a break.

The German people thought Hitler was a good idea too. All that poll proves is sheep will follow the sheppard.

You prefer perverted DEBIL?

I'm afraid that means you can't be my topix BFF anymore.

And here I was just thinking it seems things are beginning to unravel more and more. Any resemblence of a once tightly woven moral fiber, I mean.

Homer likes presidents who support partial birth abortions and perverted posters.

What a very sad day.

The same people who voted for Obama are going to blame Republicans more than Democrats if we go over the cliff?

Shocking....

No winners or losers either. A politically correct no-no. Everybody wins. Nobody loses.

Nobody tries to win. Nobody cares if they lose.

Welcome to the new fundamentally transformed America.

You should read it sometime. ALL THIS OTHER BS IS NOT. Return to the constitution and put the power back in the hands of the people and the states. Cut out all the other bs.
They can't help themselves. The bombardment of propaganda by Team Obama Cheerleaders and brainwashing by power hungry weasels who can't make any decisions but blame anyone else who does is too ingrained.

They swallowed the line that government is a separate entity disconnected from the people. It's because Obama thinks that.

The same people that voted Republican & blamed the recession, housing collapse & near financial meltdown on Obama & the Democrats want to blame Obama if we go over the cliff.

But hey, the Republicans say no rate increase on the wealthy. The President says 4 1/2%.

To Carol, a Compromise is no rate increase & anything else is caving.

I'm thinking raise the rate from 35 to 37% & close some loopholes for an additional 800 billion.

That is a compromise.

Well it just goes to show you, like this president, can be known by who you surround yourself by.

But people often turn out to be very disappointing.

Doesn't make it any less disappointing.
