Negative? Check your IQ again, Dood.

I said that it is a GOOD thing that being stupid is not illegal or you would spend your life behind bars.

That's a POSITIVE spin on a hopeless cause. I did that just for you because I am compassionate toward a lesser person than me.

...and I saw on the evening news tonight that an Arbitration Board sided with all of those busted UAW hacks caught drinking booze, beer and smoking dope. What was their reasoning? They won't say. Did they order backpay for the lazy, drunk b*sturds? The Board refused to answer.

But I'll betcha anything those very same Doods were in Lansing the last few days protesting the passage of the new Michigan Right To Work Law. They need the UAW to cover their butts like Teachers need the MEA to cover theirs when they sleep with students. Where would society be without unions, eh?

A meaningless wealth redistribution program that accomplished nothing, an additional short-term rebate.
Sure moron, a tax cut that puts money into the pockets of working Americans who go out and spend that money is wealth redistribution but cutting taxes on the wealthy who sock it away in offshore accounts isn't.
You're an idiot!

Obama can increase tax rates all he wants, but those with the ability to do so will find a way to avoid paying.
The left always makes the mistake of assuming that their actions will not affect economic behavior, that the cows will meekly line up to be milked.
When you tax an economic activity at higher rates, such as capital gains and/or dividends, you will see less of that activity.
Actually dimwit studies have shown that tax rates have little or no effect on investments or the economy.

The American people already have the best medical care in the world, at least until Obamacare denies that care.
We all understand that Obama prefers to go over the cliff, increasing taxes for everyone and slashing defense spending, a leftwing dream.
Wrong moron! The US doesn't even come close to having the best healthcare system in the world.
www.businessinsider.com/best-healthcare-syste... ...
Accessibility is a major component of an effective health care system and for years for profit insurance companies have limited that access. Obamacare opens access to those previously denied coverage and prevents private insurance from making profits by denying and limiting care.
The fiscal cliff along with defense cuts is a situation forced by the GOP. Obama is on record opposing those cuts.
You're a goddamned liar.

He won swing state voters because of the way he "handled" Hurricane Sandy...according to CNN.
He won because Romney decided to play it safe when, just the day before Sandy made landfall, Gallup and Rasmussen had him ahead by a 5 and 4 point lead respectively. Source posted last night.
He won because the liberal machine had a methodical method of getting democrat voters to the polls.
He won because too many people had been brainwashed with too many negative Obama campaign ads.
He won because enough voters had reservations about Romney's Mormonism.
Basically, Obama won because he's the luckiest person on the planet.
All polls showed a signficant majority believed we were on the wrong track right up until the day of the election.
You can put handled into quotes all you want Carol but the majority of the American people gave him high marks on his actions, 78% to be exact.

Romney ran no negative ads stupid? Not only were his ads negative they were laced with lies like claiming the President gutted the work requirement for welfare.
Obama won because the majority of the American people rejected the nihilistic slash and burn policies of the Romney/Ryan ticket that would have further enriched the already wealthy on the backs of the middle class and the poor.

i'd call anyone lucky if the opposing party handed him an election.

that's what she doesn't want to admit. that there could be anything so wrong with a group of folks living in a past that no one wants that the American people couldn't see how much better they would be for all of us.

but nooooo, it was a hurricane! a hurricane of conservative stupidity maybe.

Remember that time Dick Morris predicted a landslide victory for Mitt Romney? We all do. In the wake of his rather inaccurate assessment, Morris paid a visit to Sean Hannity on Monday night to explain what went wrong. As he’s mentioned a few times already, it came down to shifting demographics in the country.

“I have to tell you something,” Hannity told him.“People are furious with you right now.”

Morris hoped that wasn’t case, saying he did the best he could. He attributed the miscalculation to two things: Hurricane Sandy and the country’s changing demographics. The latter, he said, is a permanent shift. America is “no longer a country run by white married men and married women.”(And Morris has hardly been alone among those who cited the demographics as a major factor in the election.)

“I spoke what I believed,” Morris said, adding that he has no apologies for what he said when he said it.

But all is not lost.“The Republican party will recover,” Morris said.“Because ultimately this president’s policies are wrong, and they will lead to an economic collapse in the second term which is going to make the republican party look great.”

It's good to know that we won't have an economic crash.

he's never right about anything.

How you can fire Speaker Boehner

If conservatives want to determine their own leadership on the Hill, it starts with firing John Boehner as Speaker.

I described how and why here.

We need all of you to make this happen. We only need 16 conservatives to abstain from the Speaker vote to depose Boehner and force the GOP caucus to pick new leadership.

We’ve had thousands of activists nationwide ask how they can help. For now, we suggest calling and writing conservative Congressmen in your area.

Here’s a suggested letter/email. For a list of target Congressmen to send it to, please scroll below. Here’s the link to email your Congressperson.

That 78% was because of his response to the hurricane. He did what any president would have done.

"Of the $716 billion that the Affordable Care Act cuts from the program over the next ten years, the largest chunk—$415 billion—comes from slashing Medicare’s reimbursement rates to hospitals, nursing homes, and doctors. This significant reduction in fees is driving many doctors to stop accepting new Medicare patients, making it harder for seniors to gain access to needed care."

http://www.forbes.com/sites/aroy/2012/08/20/h...

"It is still unclear what effect these cuts will have on the program in the long run. And Romney accurately cited concerns that they may ultimately affect beneficiaries.

"Several experts, including Medicare’s independent actuary, have warned that the planned cuts may force some providers to either close or to stop serving Medicare beneficiaries."

http://articles.latimes.com/2012/oct/03/news/...

Basically, you provided misleading information about the 78% and Romney's ads were more true than not.

It wasn't Romney who accused Obama of killing someone's wife.
