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.

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.

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.

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.
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.

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.

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.
they better stay in college. Obama will have really killed the economy by 2016. loved the inaugural speech on social justice and gay rights, etc. the only mention about jobs were for illegal aliens.

how's that working for ya, Middle Class?

Everybody knows that history, everybody also knows those southern bigots abandoned the Democratic Party after passage of the Civil Rights Act. Everybody also knows which Party welcomed them into the fold and that that is what shapes that Party today. See "Solid South" and the "Southern Strategy".
Today is what matters.
Well, that Nixon doesn't align very well with this Nixon.

In 1952 and 1956, a majority of blacks backed the Republican Party. After the landmark 1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education was handed down, Eisenhower ordered desegregation of the Washington DC public schools. In 1957 and 1959, Eisenhower proposed strong civil rights bills to enforce the long-neglected 15th Amendment and give Southern blacks the right to vote. Senate Southern Democrats filibustered the bills. When the Southerners demanded that violators of the new civil rights bill have the right to jury trials (before all-white Southern juries), Democratic senator John F. Kennedy voted with the South, while Republican vice president Richard Nixon broke a tie in the Senate to kill the Southern amendment.

The Nixon years witnessed the first large-scale integration of public schools in the South. Nixon sought a middle way between the segregationist Wallace and liberal Democrats whose support of integration was alienating some Southern whites. By September 1970, less than ten percent of black children were attending segregated schools. By 1971, however, tensions over desegregation surfaced with protests over the busing of children to schools outside their neighborhood to achieve racial balance. Nixon opposed busing personally but enforced court orders requiring its use.

In addition to desegregating public schools, Nixon implemented the Philadelphia Plan in 1970 — the first significant federal affirmative action program. He also endorsed the Equal Rights Amendment after it passed both houses of Congress in 1972 and went to the states for ratification. Nixon also appointed more women to administration positions than Lyndon Johnson had.

What you accuse Nixon and, by mere association, all Republicans of doing in the South doesn't add up.

that's what happened to him on the birfer thread.
Dweeb was too crazy for the birfers, they ran him off!!
These are very simple questions, and do not require a complex answer. A simple location is required to answer the first question, and a simple source of money is required to answer the second question.
To date, nobody on Earth has been able to answer these questions:

Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the real-time video was being watched in the White House?

And;

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Simple questions. Simple answers. A simple location is required to answer the first question, and a simple source of money is required to answer the second question.

Got an answer for us, dupe?

12 Ways Obama Smacked Down the Tea Party and the Right in Inauguration Speech

Reclaiming the language of patriotism, Obama then threw it back in the faces of right-wing Republicans to advance a liberal agenda.

1. Reminding the nation who won the Civil War.

2. Reminding the nation of the history of the civil rights movement.

3. Reclaiming the founding documents for liberalism.

4. Throwing right-wing rhetoric right back at them.

The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative; they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.

And Ayn Rand wept.
