Typical Democrat.
You were caught and are too low class to own up.
I guess you got me waxturd. All you have to do to get me to admit I'm wrong is to deny the quote I attributed as your position on guns:
"Guns are okay as long as they are used to kill people."

Do you deny that?

Then I assume your position is:
"Guns are NOT okay if they are used to kill people."

Since you hate hunting what other possible use for guns is there?

What a bunch of bullshit. What an ignorant assertion.
So you are suggesting that Obama is the best person qualified to manage foreign policy and not the people on site? That's a surprise.

I notice most of the crisis' so far are those manufactured by cons!
Hey, Jerk, He said "Obama has yet to *face* a real crisis as President."

The Boy Messiah hasn't faced it yet and refuses to do so in the future. Denial is common Liberal response to crisis. Especially those that are self-inflicted.

Hear Hear or Here Here?
Posted on November 10, 2008 by Abacquer
So today I found myself agreeing with someone online and went to type “hear hear” but then remembered seeing someone else type “here here” a couple days earlier.
I was pretty sure the correct phrase was “hear hear” as opposed to the other variants I'd seen (“here here”,“hear here”,“here hear”) but I'd never actually looked it up. So I decided to check popular internet usage using Google:
“hear hear”= 1,740,000 hits
“here here”= 3,880,000 hits
“hear here”= 307,000 hits
“here hear”= 334,000 hits
Well dang. According to popular usage twice as many people say “here here” than say “hear hear”. But is that correct? Wikipedia says no:
Hear hear (Wikipedia):
…Hear, hear is an expression used as a short repeated form of hear ye and hear him. It represents a listener's agreement with the point being made by a speaker.
It was originally an imperative for directing attention to speakers, and has since been used, according to the Oxford English Dictionary, as “the regular form of cheering in the House of Commons”, with many purposes depending on the intonation of its user. It is often incorrectly spelled “here here”, especially on websites…
A quick double check of OneLook Dictionary Search confirms this. Six dictionaries list “hear hear” and only one lists “here here”(and that one happens to be the wiki article above.)
Popular usage drives the movement of meaning, though, so at some point in the future “here here” may end up being the correct phrase if we don't do something about it.
So if you want to avoid yet another English colloquialism that will have your great grandchildren scratching their heads and saying “WTF?”(or whatever kids will be saying in those days) then type “hear hear” at every opportunity.
Hear! Hear!

Carol,I guess to a dumbass like you, employment at 7.7% on its way to 10.2 is the same as a 7.7% on its way down.
This is what I love about you dumbass right whiners.
We lost 750,000 jobs in January of 2009. I guess to you, Obama should have made that zero in the following month.
The fact is that in the ten months it look to end those job losses, the rate went to 10.2%. But hey, you people are blaming Obama for these loses when they belong to the Bush recession.
When will you right whiners learn what the new jobless claims number means.
You & Jeffy really need to become better informed instead regurgitating the talking heads on Fox & Conservative Talk Radio.
BTW, those weekly claims number were over 650K when your hero George W Bush left office.
My God you people are stupid.
The economic recovery has been crawling along at a snail's pace.

Obama's priority was not to let a good crisis go to waste and took two years putting Obamacare first rather than job creation and economic growth.

It was Obamacare that brought job creation and economic growth to
a screeching halt.

It's only going to get worse next year.

cant believe we commoners have to suffer with four more years of this crap. four more years of no jobs, more taxes, no hope...who voted for this? thats right, the people who dont pay taxes or have a job. Eventually, people who work and support those that dont will get tired of this.

How cool is that!!
(Well, not for the nitwits!)
Is that because he stumbled over the words the first time?

In 2008, that seemed like an omen to some of us.

Wonder how many presidents have done that before?

Yep, old Waxtard is quite the spokesman. He is living proof that there is no cure for stupid.

Today the President is inaugurated for his Second Term. He won re-election. The economy is improving. Obamacare is the Law of the Land.
The Republiclown House has agreed with OBama and voted to increase taxes on the wealthy.
The Republiclown House has agreed to push the debt ceiling fight off for a few months.
Obama is winning on all counts.
That's what really bothers you, eh silly nitwit??
I thought as much.
<quoted text>
Did it ever occur to you that House Republicans may be giving President Obama everything he wants to give him enough rope to hang himself by his own policies?

If everything goes south, all Republicans have to say is we did what Obama and apparently the majority of Americans wanted us to do.
