Yeah thats sounds great. Lets pay those with no skills even more for the skills that they do not have nor have the motivation to achieve.
If their was less people like Mitt Romney and the Walmarts and more people like Barack and Michelle Obama and no guns America would be a better place for all of mankind in which to live.

I know about economy an I know that if greedy CEOs shared there wealth with there employes the economy would stabilize and the deficit wouldnt fall off the cliff and it would cure the national debts. If every CEO would just sold just one of there vacation homes and shared it with there employees the physical cliff could be solved and President Obama could get back to the business of governing and getting rid of guns and hate radio.

No, it wouldn't. It wouldn't even be a DENT in the DEBT of EVERYONE in this nation.
And ROMNEY's finances are his,NOT yours-- as should be peoples own PERSONAL business.
And YOUR fruedian slackertic robbinghoodtic type GREED is even more DISGUSTING, than a greedy hedge fund managers!!!
A presidental candidates personal wealth is every Americans business. Mitt Romney lost the election because he's is a crook an Americans throughout the world and coast to coast didn't fall for his shinanegens because we are informed enough to President Obama. He should be placed under investigaton by the FBI and CIA for his felonys and voter fraud.

If you ever held a management position (above that of say a fast food restaurant) you would know that especially at the CEO level and similar their bonuses are part of their contract. Itís negotiated at the time they are hired.
If fast food resterants would pay there workers a fair wage and health insurance instead of CEO bonuses people could get ahead more in life.

Not just CEO's.
Ask any NON-union, non BAILED-out FORD type dept manager that sucked it up and took the LOSSES right in their own pockets--alll the way back down to minimum wage for double and triple time duties--all through the recessive auto economy!
Fords are junk. They don't even build any green cars like the Chevy Volt or Nisaan Leaf. They don't care about the enviroment, just money. All they care about is money like Mitt Romney and the Walmarts. How many people have died in Ford Pinto explosions for the sake of profits? How many people died in Ford Explorers that rolled over for the sake of profits? How many people died in Ford factories before the UAW made them start following safety rules. And they still outsource everything to China.

Virtually all of Obumbles closet advisors and staff have never ran as much as a lemonade stand. Is it any wonder the economy still stinks?
President Obama turned Chicago's economy around when he was Senator just like he's doing now as President. He also reduced crime and made health care available to all Chicagoans, not just the privileged few. And he helped implemented the strictest gun control laws in the country. Gun crimes in Chicago dropped dramatically when he was Senator.

Makes sense. Predicting outcomes of elections is their field of expertise and contribution. The election is over.
Obama's "handling" of Hurricane Sandy surprised everyone.
Yeah Carol, and Rove and Morris were so spot on weren't they? Rove's meltdown on air was an embarrassment and signaled the end of his credibility.
No one with half a brain was surprised at the President's handling of Sandy you clueless twit. It's what happens when you put people in charge that actually know what they're doing unlike his predecessor who appointed a political hack with no experience in emergency management.

Banks are in business to make a profit, not give out pity loans to the un credit worthy, sad fact of life. When are you and some of the other liberal swells like Buffet,Clooney, Gates, etc. going to start your bank? The po' folks need loans.
Bank CEOs are overcompensated like all CEOs. That's why the economy was tanking. Fortunately President Obama's policies are turning things around

One other thing. Drop the concept that every child must attend school. Purge the schools of the troublemakers who have no interest in learning and who just prevent others from learning.
What you really mean is to kick out all the blacks. Typical republican. Each and every child deserves the opportunity to an education. You would have probably "purged" Barack Obama because he's black, thus depriving our country of one of the greatest leaders it has ever had. It's sad that racism is still so rampant in America.

SEN. RAND PAUL: I have yet another thought on how we can fix this. Why don't we let the Democrats pass whatever they want? If they are the party of higher taxes, all the Republicans vote present and let the Democrats raise taxes as high as they want to raise them, let Democrats in the Senate raise taxes, let the president sign it and then make them own the tax increase. And when the economy stalls, when the economy sputters, when people lose their jobs, they know which party to blame, the party of high taxes. Let's don't be the party of just almost as high taxes.
LARRY KUDLOW, CNBC: Some people have called that the doomsday scenario. Others have said,'Look, it's a strategic retreat on the Republicans' behalf.' Would you vote present for that in the Senate if that came up?
RAND PAUL: Yes, I don't think we have to in the Senate. In the House, they have to because the Democrats don't have the majority. In the Senate, I'm happy not to filibuster it, and I will announce tonight on your show that I will work with Harry Reid to let him pass his big old tax hike with a simple majority if that's what Harry Reid wants, because then they will become the party of high taxes and they can own it.
Rand Paul is a bigger racist nutcase than his loony father.

Since Obama wants us all to believe so badly that he has al Qaeda on the run and under control - even to the extreme of editing their name and involvement in Benghazi out of the CIA report and sending his mouthpiece to lie to the public - perhaps you're right and we can rest assured that no further attacks will be plotted behind our backs and without our knowledge.
The White House didn't have anything to do with the talking points that Susan Rice was given you goddamned liar. They were provided by the intelligence community who had an interest in protecting their sources and not tipping off the terrorists.
The hypocrisy here is that during the previous administration another Rice in this case Condoleezza was being questioned about faulty intelligence that she disseminated about Iraqi WMD and The same John McCain who dragged Susan Rice over the coals came to her defense.

Providing assistance in natural disasters is one of the very few roles of the federal government.
We're so broke, the federal government can't even assist its own citizens properly after this kind of devastation.
And you're proud of that?
Why are we broke nitwit? Could it have something to do with unnecessary tax cuts and two wars?

DEMOCRATS ---- The party of abortion and the takers of other people's money.
F##k 'em all!
Republicans: The party of the two percent rich elite. The party that supports the CEOs of those slave labor camps otherwise known as Walmart and McDonalds. The party that wants to enslave women by forcing them to have children they cannot afford while supporting the carnage caused by deadly firearms.
Democrats: The party of equality and fairness for ALL Americans. President Obama - the President of equality and fairness for all Americans.

No woman should be forced to give birth to a child she cannot afford to raise properly. You racist republicans are the reason there are so many unwanted pregnancies. You want to enslave all women and blacks.

We are broke because George Bush destroyed the economy. President Obama is fixing it.
