I said back in 2009 that when the stimulus works & the economy improves, the right whiners would claim that it would have improved without ding anything.
Just think where we would be if those you right whiners elect actually pitched in & helped.
Imagine that Gimpy McCain and Caribou Barbie had taken the reigns of the nation in 2009.

Oh, and it seems as though the right wing loons have overlooked that the baby boomers have created a nightmare with +/- 10,000 per day retiring-leaving the work force-going on the dole etc etc etc. It's not as though people didn't retire previously__but never at anywhere near at the same rate as the BB's.

But then many of the right wingers are lousy at math__history and geography too.

YOU homosexuals and homophiles always label someone homophobic as they please REALDAVE. YOU have become so reckless in labeling others homophobic that in some circles, one can be labeled a homophobe for not praising homosexuality you degenerate....
Just because someone does not like (homosexuals) steak, does not makes them a (bigot) vegetarian... you moron..
Get a dictionary. Here's just one example:

ho·mo·pho·bi·a (hm-fb-)
n.

1. Fear of or contempt for lesbians and gay men.
2. Behavior based on such a feeling.

So yes, not liking homosexuals makes you a homophobe, just like not liking black people makes you a racist.

Where was this mentality during the Joe McCarthy era of black listing and UnAmerican Activities hearings?

Where was this mentality when J. Edgar Hoover ran the FBI like an American Gestapo?

Where was this mentality when Nixon used the military and police to break up anti-war rallies and jail those who participated?

Where was this mentality when the Patriot Act was passed?

You can't say Obama "made it worse". He has definitely contained the damage of the Chimp years.
Sure dumbfk. When millions of people give up looking for work and join the welfare roles, the unemployment numbers go down.

Your chimp is the Welfare President. A fktard like you has no clue. Go rinse your face off now. There is jizz dripping down your nose.

Did you think there was logic in there? Lets try it another way.
While black people vehemently reject being considered mentally ill, they have no problems regarding those who dislike black people as mentally ill or afraid.
Yep.
There is nothing wrong with being gay. But people who still have a problem with gay people, even with all the information available today, definitely have some kind of mental/emotional issues and/or are afraid.
You will all be regarded with the same shame as we now regard racists.
Your deviant behavior or retardation is NOT a metaphor for blacks or race you moron. Homosexuals should understand that just because we are required to tolerate (them) YOU in legal matters does not mean that we need to accept and/or approve (their) YOUR diseased deviant behavior. The next thing you'll all want to be called is normal.

National and local conservative activists are up in arms because former South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds (R), a leading contender in the state's open U.S. Senate race next year, declined to give total assurances that he won't raise taxes if he makes it to Capitol Hill.

A story published Sunday in the Argus Leader of Sioux Falls, S.D. quoted a number of right-wing leaders who expressed misgivings about the former governor's refusal to accept the anti-tax pledge, as well as his spending record while in office.

Rounds told the Argus Leader that pledges lead to bad governance.

“While we may know how we would feel about a particular issue right now, when things change, when circumstances change, a good legislator or congressperson should have the ability to reconsider their own position on an issue,” Rounds said.

so being in touch with reality doesn't sit well with the wingnuts.

The Soviet Union is dead thanks to the policies of the Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford and mostly the Carter years, of course then Reagan took credit for their demise.

If any presidential candidate made that kind of mistake, a red flag should go up.
Not only did he say he had been in 57 states with 1 more to go but he hadn't even been to Alaska and Hawaii. That makes 60.
No matter how tired you were, wouldn't you hear yourself say 57 states with 1 more to go and correct it immediately?
Imagine if Romney or Bush had said they had been in 57 states with 1 more to go. Heavens to Betsy, it would have been the end of their candidacy. The liberal media would have seen to it.
The difference is George W Bush is stupid. He might actually believe there are 57 states. Obama isn't. He made a mistake.

Get over it, you sound really silly.

Yep, the GOP robots keep screaming about "Obamacare" without realizing health insurance is still controlled by the private sector.

Rounds will be castigated as a "RINO" and marked for defeat. There's no room for independent thinking in the GOP.

Calling Ben Carson's words 'hurtful, offensive,' Hopkins CEO brings clarity to debate

The letter from Rothman puts an end to the politicized nonsense stirred up by Fox News and Hannity, one of its most compromised hosts. Carson's words were not misinterpreted, and furthermore, his boss believes they were hurtful and offensive.
