Excuse my bluntness...but how in the hell do you know they aren't using that money to help others?

The wealthiest are most often the philanthropists among us.

If everyone is clutching onto every penny they earn over the next four years, who do you think is going to suffer the most?

Let's hope the GOP is listening and gives Obama and the Demcorats everything they want, tells the American people over and over again they just did what the majority wanted - and then see what happens.
No.

The Republicans cannot be participants in Obama's disastrous economic policy.

Selling out the country for political advantage is not a good policy.

Why do you think these clowns run for office and ask for money, because people will send it in. Romney didn't get where he is by being stupid. At least he worked a job in the private sector. More than Barack Hussein Obama can put on his resume....

If you don't understand the root cause of the problem, a solution is impossible.
Why don't you explain how your claims has anything to do with the conclusion you've drawn.

Only your last sentence makes any sense.

Republicans should go on the offensive and agree to Obama's tax policy if, and only if, it is coupled with significant current spending reduction.

Otherwise, let the ship go over the cliff, which would be better for the economy than the Obama plan.

Doesn't surprise me in the least. Obama always talks out of both sides of his mouth. You're the one who should be angry.

The 1% are supposed to be the "enemy". But the 1% couldn't give enough to Obama's campaign and he also holds the record of the number of expensive and numerous fundraisers held just for them.

You're not angry?

And with the Republican creation known Citizens United the politicians can really rake it in these days eh?

There's big money in politics these days__how do you feel about "the grassroots" FreedomWorks paying Dick Armey $8 million to scram? You TeaParty loons ought to be spitting nails mad__but nary a peep.

Mitt's business acumen has failed him in politics losing three out of four attempts and tiring of the governors office. Mitt's a phony, you won't be hearing much from him going forward.

May I add an unfounded and irrational hatred that goes way beyond politics? Where did that come from, by the way? Didn't used to be like this.

In the wake of the election, there's no doubt the Republican Party is capable of making some adjustments to rebrand itself. If nothing else, the party has demonstrated its proclivity for sloganeering and marketing and there are plenty of ways it can adjust its messaging. But it's obvious to anyone paying attention that the base simply won't allow the party to change in any meaningful way.

'meaningful'

don't you just get a kick out of those who insist that the republicans didn't act crazy enough?

If President Obama honestly wants to negotiate an agreement with Republicans before the year-end fiscal deadline, he must be deeply frustrated. And if he doesn't really want to negotiate with them, then he should be delighted, for the same reason: Their latest "offer" laid before him by House Speaker John Boehner demonstrates again their refusal to reveal their true intentions and their inability to do simple arithmetic.

In case the poster, Chicago, hasn't said this yet.

The Senate voted to approve The Joint Resolution to Authorize the Use of United States Armed Forces Against Iraq with the support of large bipartisan majorities on October 11, 2002, providing the Bush administration with a legal basis for the U.S. invasion under U.S. law.

It cited the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998, the resolution signed by former President Clinton, that it should be the policy of the United States to remove the Hussein regime and promote a democratic replacement.

In the wake of unexpected losses last month, Republicans are going through the classic stages of grief. Some are denying that conservatism was their downfall. Most are depressed at the prospect of another four years of an Obama administration. A few, including some pollsters who missed the mark badly, are bargaining to keep their jobs. All are angry at the results, at the fact that they didn't see it coming, and at the position in which the party now finds itself: badly trailing Democrats when it comes to the technological and political savvy required to run and win campaigns.

Many Republicans say that there is a skills gap between the two parties, based on neglect within their own ranks and advances on the Democratic side. Acceptance, and adapting to overcome the deficit, will be critical to rebuilding the Grand Old Party.

Grand OLD Party.
