Americans rejected the Republican's message of hate, fear and greed. That's not who the majority of us want to be like.

Here is the 'system' taking care of the good performers...
Unions...
"Despite just being named Sacramento's "Teacher of the Year," Apperson was laid off as part of a massive budget cut"

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/sacrament...

and another...

"For example, in June 2010, long before Scott Walker was elected, Milwaukee Public Schools fired 482 teachers--including Megan Sampson, a young educator named an "outstanding first year teacher" by the Wisconsin Council of Teachers of English."

Collective bargaining...

http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/how-colle...

What POSs were kept instead of these two star performers Dave?

figure this....

It’s no surprise, after losing a second time to Barack Obama, that the right is engaged in a furious debate over the future of the Republican Party.

But it’s quickly degenerating into a mudfight.

“Conservatism is a racket for a lot of people to get very, very rich,” declares Joe Scarborough on MSNBC.“With no thought of winning elections.”

“It may be that major parts of American conservatism have become such a racket that a kind of refounding of the movement as a cause is necessary,” says William Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard.

What’s going on here? Is this simply the venting of prominent media folks who are tired of seeing their side taken to the cleaners? Or have they concluded that the talk-show/fundraising culture that powers the GOP has become more interested in feathering its nest than electing Republicans?

Just two years ago, the GOP captured the House, the Tea Party was ascendant, and the rank and file had every reason to believe that Obama would be a one-termer. Now the reelected president, having vanquished Mitt Romney, is all but dictating terms on averting the fiscal cliff. No wonder the right seems to be undergoing a collective nervous breakdown.

Newt Gingrich sounded less than confident on Meet the Press when the talk turned to Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016.“The Republican Party today is incapable of competing at that level,” said the man who proved incapable of beating Romney.

Scarborough’s analysis on Morning Joe:“You have a lot of people running around, saying harsh things that sell books and push ratings and lose elections.”

And those who try to promote a more compassionate brand of conservatism, says the former Florida congressman, are “thrown to the side because they don’t sound enough like Glenn Beck or a blogger.” He described these adversaries as “cowards” and “bullies” who won’t back off unless “you punch them in the face.”

Kristol, who has committed the apostasy of saying the GOP should stop protecting a bunch of millionaires from tax hikes, describes the conservative movement as being “in deep disarray.”

He’s also in a spat with The Wall Street Journal editorial page, which took a shot at Kristol (without naming him):“Various Beltway sages want Republicans to say never mind, we were only kidding, tax rates don’t matter to the economy. So because Mitt Romney lost, Republicans in Congress are supposed to repudiate their core economic principles.”

The Journal says that House Republicans still have leverage, and that if we slide off the fiscal cliff and everyone’s taxes go up on Jan. 1, the GOP will still have the clout to negotiate a deal with Obama, who may fear that trench warfare will ruin his final term. Kristol responds with an obvious counter-argument: that if House Republicans block legislation to restore tax breaks to 98 percent of Americans in a last-ditch attempt to protect the richest 2 percent,“it will be they, and they alone, insisting on higher taxes.” Not a great position to be defending in 2014.

so while liberals are having a great year, conservative are having a nervous breakdown.

which has really tamped down those who still like to recall 2010. Tea Party???

One week after the 2012 election, Fox News correspondent Jesse Watters told Bill O'Reilly that Obama voters were "zombies" who supported the president "as long as there was Obamacare, gay marriage and abortion on demand."

Per the FEC filing above, Watters, who resides in Long Island, N.Y., contributed $500 to Obama Victory Fund 2012 in late September. You'll note "News Corp.," which owns Fox News, is listed under "name of employer."

POLITICO reached out to Fox News PR to request an interview with Watters and to ask the network for comment. They did not respond.

http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2012/12/f...

so he's still working at FOX, while Dick Morris is nowhere to be found.

talk about poetic justice.

I cant believe you have the gall to keep shooting off that big mouth after I embarrassed you last night regarding Unversities paying their President's taxes. A mentally-stunted leftist like you should crawl off in shame, never log on to Topix again, and voluntarily give up your right to vote......

The fact that you cannot spell constitution is probably a clue, not to mention the idiotic argument that you posed.

2nd Amendment to the Constitution

Indeed; it really IS that stupid.....

<quoted text>America needs to get rid of all these guns. In countries where guns are banned, gun crimes are practically nonexistent. Most Americans agree that President Obama needs to step up to the plate and get rid of all these guns.
Switzerland, where every citizen goes armed, has the lowest crime rates in the world. The countries of which you speak, are dictatorships for the most part. We don't do that here.

If you don't like guns don't own one.
If you don't like your neighbor owning a gun, move away from him.

I hear Singapore and Malaysia are lovely - but don't spit in the street.
