nobama is odd, but sometimes on target as with his comment on Honda being reliable.
Jimmy Carter was giddy speaking about his grandsons discovery of the "47% romney video" that helped President Obama win the election.

The president of the API said there were oil subsidies. Republicans in Congress debated these subsidies.
Just as they will debate the sequester.
Well, tell us about them. Or, perhaps you just cannot read and comprehend the English language sufficiently to just simply tell us about those subsidies that only you Dmeocrats say exist.

I'll help you. Organize your list, then just put them here one by one.

Subsidy number 1:________?
Subsidy number 2:________?
etc., etc., etc.

Got a problem there, don't you? That's because those subsidies you talk about don't exist. It's just another propaganda lie from the Democrats.

Or, I could be wrong. Tell us about those subsidies to oil companies you read from the API report.

He said their healthcare is phenomenal; as is Canadas. He said he's scheduled for an mri and knee surgery, won't cost him a dime. Predicts the U.S. is headed for single payer healthcare and the embargo on Cuba is soon to be lifted.

Virginia’s Governor Bob McDonnell Thinks You’re an Idiot

....Bob McDonnell is a perfect example of the worst kind of Republican. He has no principles that he won’t sell out if he thinks the situation demands it. He is interested in the praise of liberal editorial pages for his balanced leadership, which is really just selling out the people who got him elected. His policy legacy will now be trading higher taxes for a massive entitlement expansion. How pathetic.

Conservatives should recognize that between Bob McDonnell and Charlie Crist only Crist is honest about not believing in anything. The only difference is the letter after their name. Oh that, and Bob McDonnell, after raising taxes on Virginians and caving on the Medicaid expansion will be speaking at CPAC.

And if that’s what happens, maybe it’s a sign Bob McDonnell is right about you and me: we really are that dumb.

P.S. McDonnell didn’t do this alone. While many conservative Republicans held the line and voted against McDonnell’s tax hike and Medicaid expansion deal, many Republicans in the House and Senate went along with it, greedy for the taxpayer dollars that will flow into their districts.

The man in charge of BP‘s ill-fated Deepwater Horizon rig warned his boss that staff were operating in “chaos, paranoia and insanity” just days before a fatal blowout killed 11 men and caused the worst oil spill in US history, a New Orleans court heard on Monday.

In opening arguments Michael Underhill, the lawyer representing the US Department of Justice, said BP knew it was drilling a “well from hell” but that its managers refused to deviate from a “course of corporate recklessness” that ultimately led to the fatal blowout at the Gulf of Mexico well.

The company was guilty of “willful misconduct,” he said. It had calculated it needed $7bn (£4.6bn) to pay shareholders their dividend and put immense pressure on staff to save money and drill faster in order to reach that target, he said.“A safety corner cut a day saved was a $1m saved for BP,” said Underhill.

Hard to believe anyone can be both so ignorant and such a liar.
But you qualify for both!!
----------
""Sequestration was the result of last summer’s debt ceiling deal, which cut $1 trillion in government spending over the next decade outright and then put responsibility for finding another $1.2 trillion on Congress.
Because Congress failed to agree on the mixture of lower spending and higher taxes to hit that figure, a mechanism in the debt ceiling-raising legislation causes automatic spending decreases to hit the $1.2 trillion figure: about $109 billion in lower government spending every year for the next decade.""
----------
Sequestration is a direct result of the Tea Party Congress failling to agree on budget cuts.
BTW, all spending since Jan 2011 is the fault of the Republiclown/Teabagger House!!
Where will the money come from to run Boehner's Government, nitwit??
You're a pathological liar.
As well as an idiot!!
<quoted text>
If it weren't for propaganda lies being programmed into you, you wouldn't have anything to say, would you?

There is no "sequestration".
It's all a propaganda lie.
There is no plan to cut government spending.
It's all a propaganda lie.
What the Democrats call "sequestration" is their plan to borrow only 7 trillion dollars more over the next 10 years as opposed to borrowing 8.5 trillion dollars over the same time period.

Let's go over that again:

THERE IS NO PLAN IN EXISTENCE TO CUT GOVERNMENT SPENDING.

Obama is a pathologic liar.

But, he doesn't care if he lies or not. He's just doing what he's always done, whatever his handlers want him to do so he can ride in the gold seat on that government gravy train.

So you and Obama’s disdain for America you want to conceal as well as hide your views and aims. You Socialist Democratics openly declare that your ends can be attained only by the forcible overthrow of the existing constitution. You really expect the free people to tremble at a Communistic minded revolution. You haters of hard work self-reliant people have nothing to lose and a world to steal from. You wish.
When you were asking what you could do for your country, did taking a course in basic composition ever come up? Are you Dexter or Cherokreep? With gems like "conceal as well as hide" and "hard work self reliant" I think Ms. Redundant would be a better name for this sock...of course, the real problem is that you Limbaughtomized Breitbard and Beck worshippers actually believe this convoluted nonsense.

Canada was never a part of the Cuban embargo nor were most European countries__it was a Merican thang!

Raul Castro announced that he'll step away from his leadership role in 2018 if he lives that long, Fidel will be long in the grave by then.

It's my belief that Cuba should already be a US state. If the "politics of fear" didn't interfere with the natural order__it would be a state and I'd be kickin back in Cienfuegos.

Hell, Bush did it on a daily basis!!
"In terms of the economy, look, I inherited a recession, I am ending on a recession." --George W. Bush,
"There's no question about it. Wall Street got drunk -- that's one of the reasons I asked you to turn off the TV cameras -- it got drunk and now it's got a hangover. The question is how long will it sober up and not try to do all these fancy financial instruments." --George W. Bush
"Amigo! Amigo!" --George W. Bush, calling out to Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in Spanish at the G-8 Summit
"I remember meeting a mother of a child who was abducted by the North Koreans right here in the Oval Office." --George W. Bush,
"Wait a minute. What did you just say? You're predicting $4-a-gallon gas?... That's interesting. I hadn't heard that." --George W. Bush
"Make no mistake about it, I understand how tough it is, sir. I talk to families who die." --George W. Bush,
"The Patriot Act has increased the flow of information within our government and it has helped break up terrorist cells in the United States of America. And the United States Congress was right to renew the terrorist act -- the Patriot Act." --George W. Bush,
