Republicans provided one year of comedy called the campaign complete with video, Ryan losing the debate to Biden and fate dealing out 47% to whats-his-name, your candidate.
When neither President Bush attended the GOP convention may have been a sign that the party was in trouble.
You might attempt to find something positive about your party rather than carping on your failures ?
You do know that Lincoln invited Carl Marks to the US. But Marks could not leave England at that time so he sent a representative in his place. Lincoln studied Carl Marks philosophes.

BUREAU OF LABOR AND STATISTICS - JANUARY 4, 2013
The advance number of actual initial claims under state programs, unadjusted, totaled 555,708 in the week ending January 12, an increase of 2,360 from the previous week. There were 525,422 initial claims in the comparable week in 2012.

You'll have to explain to me how this is good news.
Carol, these are seasonal changes.

As you were told before.

Retailers & shippers hire people for the holidays & then lay them off.

But this is typical for you right whiners. When these retailers were hiring & boosting the actual numbers then where you??? Ignoring it?

I suspect Carol has not only slipped from the rails but has fallen off her rocker as well. She doesn't seem able to understand why her fanatical party is losing power...Carol, try looking at issues and positions?????
When your party was on the rails, they held both houses of Congress from the 1930's when you were a teenager up until your party became the socialist party and went offf the rails losing control of Congress in the 80's:

<quoted text> The Labor Force Participation Rate hit a 30 year low on January 17th 2013. That means, so you understand, that is the lowest amount of people in the workforce since 1983.
I love it how the rabid right searches for a negative statistics & then harps on it.

For example, in this poor job market, more kids are going to college & getting education. This would lower your precious stat. A stat that has been decreasing since 2001.

Erick Erickson:

Conservatives, frankly, have become purveyors of outrage instead of preachers for a cause. Instead of showing how increasing government harms people, how free markets help people, and how conservative policies benefit all Americans, we scream “Benghazi” and “Fast & Furious.”

We’re off key and off message. We’ve become professional victims dialed up to 10 on the outrage meter. Who the hell wants to listen to conservatives whining and moaning all the time about the outrage du jour? Seriously? Mitt Romney ran a campaign on just how bad things are, but he was rejected by a majority of Americans who felt like he really did not care about them and really had no plans to improve their lives.

Bitching about Benghazi doesn’t do that either.

I can only base my opinions and beliefs on the current parties and since I believe that women, Gays, Blacks and all Americans are all worthy of equal treatment and equal rights. It appears that based on actions and deeds the Democratic party is far more in tune with those beliefs.

See how it has stayed above the line since June, 2009? That's the broadest measure of our economy, you argue that its worse today than it was in Jan, 2009 when the growth rate was -7%.
That's insanity.
That's powerful.

But instead they waste all of their time relentlessly trying to find any and everthing that will reflect bad on the Democrats. Seemingly totally unaware of their many short comings, like equal rights for women, discrimination with Blacks and other ethnic groups, and all the while boasting of their religious and moral superiority and self righteous indignations. Their total love affair with the very rich and corporate America. Which was more than proven with selecting a smug tight azzed Richie Rich as their candidate for president.

Then maybe you should get your history straight bonehead.

Percentage wise, more Democrats voted AGAINST the Civil Rights Act of 1964 than Republicans.

You just lie & say chit like this now for your class race & warfare purposes, Boris.

More than 50 percent of Americans believe abortion should legal in all or most cases while 70 percent want the landmark Supreme Court ruling of Roe v. Wade to be upheld, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday night.

Fifty-four percent said abortion should be legal either always or most of the time, marking the first time since the question was included in the NBC/WSJ poll in 2003 that a majority believes it should be legal. Thirty-one percent indicated that abortion should always be legal, while 23 percent said it should be legal most of the time.

The 70 percent who said that Roe should be protected included 57 percent who feel strongly about upholding the decision. Only 24 percent said the decision should be overturned.

Monday's poll was released on the eve of the 40th anniversary of Roe. A survey released last week from Pew showed that a comparably large majority of 63 percent does not want the historic 1973 ruling reversed.

pointing out other people's so called mistakes is not a political strategy that will win elections.

a 30 year old agenda also won't get it done.

they move center right or they move out.

I like how they dragged the president into their argument by pointing out he and his family have armed guards.
Obama gets almost 10,000 threats against his life a year.
Thousands more than any other president.
threats made by his wife and mother-in-law don't count

Jimmy is A-typical of those conservatives that are determined to bend, twist and distort while purposely never seeing the big picture. While they are in the process of ignoring the actual facts they are being racist in implying that Blacks in America aren't smart enough to know which party is best for them and America.
