When Obama is sworn in he will be the first president since Dwight D. Eisenhower to win over 51% of the vote twice. Quite an accomplishment.
He's also the first president to be elected where nobody ever pressed the wrong button by mistake.
Quite an impossibility.

Well, I could be inbred, if my maternal Spanish great grandfather was related to my maternal great grandmother who was the daughter of former slaves in Louisiana, who had a daughter who married a French/German/Jew man she was related to, who had a daughter who married a Irish/Scot/English man she was related to.
Yup. There's the possibility of being inbred with that heritage.)))))

YEAH BLACKs The President gave members of Congress and other federal workers a pay raise.

Congressman Sanford Bishop says he'll decline the raise and urges his fellow lawmakers to do the same. Bishop joined Congressman John Barrow in urging the House leadership to bring legislation to the floor to stop the pay adjustment scheduled to start in March.

Bishop issued a statement saying it is inappropriate for members of Congress to receive a pay increase of any size while American families and taxpayers continue to face tough economic times.

Members of Congress make about $174,000 dollars a year.

You should probably see the irony that helping disaster victims is coming from the right and that ensuring the safety of Americans is one of the few roles of the federal government.

Handing out food stamps like they're candy while strangling the job market at the same time...not so much.

Spending billions on pointless "research" projects...not so much either.

Let me introduce you to some facts of history that obviously aren't included in the material you are indoctrinated with.
When Bush took office the total public debt was 5 trillion dollars.

The Arab jihad declares a global war on the United States
January, 2007, Democrats take control of all the purse strings of government.
annual deficit 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion
total public debt 8 trillion dollars
Please tell us what the Democrats have done to the deficit and debt since they took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007.
Did you say increase the deficit ONE THOUSAND F**K*NG PERCENT?
Did you say DOUBLE THE DEBT?
And, did you say they can't even generate a plan for government?
So, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
You do know you'll have to answer that question or collapse the government, which means the end of the existence of the United States, right?
Are you committing treason and attempting to end the existence of the United States?

What this points out is that the American people gave Obama a historically significant mandate. They looked at what he accomplished in his first term and compared it to the direction the Republican party wanted to take us and choose Obama. Your reasoning is subjective and unsubstantiated. I suggest you change your moniker to "Spin is no SIN". Has more of a ring to it anyway.

That's between you and the Almighty, Lily. You only have to be willing to believe Jesus was God in the flesh and came here to tell us who He was, humble yourself, turn from your rebellious nature and ask for forgiveness. He does all the rest.

Just like that captain of one of the slave ships who ended up writing the hymn, Amazing Grace, and spent the rest of his life fighting for the abolishment of slavery. He followed the steps above. And received a new heart. Like millions of others.

I truly hope this helps.
