The Republicans risked shutting down the federal government to cut funding for Planned Parenthood while ignoring tens of billions of dollars of tax loopholes they refuse to close.
Only in Right Whiner la la land does shutting down an organization the prevents50,000 abortions a year a good thing.

MSNBC - Six months after Hurricane Sandy, for many residents whose homes were badly damaged, recovery is moving at a slow pace – or not at all.

This president can't move a little faster on anything besides Obamacare?

He's sending F-16s to Egypt while American citizens are still displaced?

Can someone on the left please explain this to me?

President Obama has a minority outreach tip for the GOP. They can start by reaching out to him. "I know Republicans are still sorting out what happened in 2012, but one thing they all agree on is they need to do a better job reaching out to minorities. And look, call me self-centered, but I can think of one minority they could start with. Hello? Think of me as a trial run, you know? See how it goes."

<quoted text>Signs death warrants__I don't think the governor can pardon.
Ann Richards wouldn't sign a death warrant so Bush had 8 years worth of them stacked up on his desk on day one. He didn't really have a choice being a Republican and all__but he made a few unnecessary comments along the way.
Let Carol and the other yayhoo's have their memories to diddle__Bush is essentially trapped in Texas, unwelcome even in (R) circles and doesn't dare travel to Europe. He flew to the Caymans for a speech and he'll trek to D.C. and Maine when Sr passes. That's a pretty lonely existence for an ex POTUS imo.
Interesting. He doesn't look well, looks disturbed. May be drinking again

Republican filibustered it in the Senate you moron. Otherwise the Senate would have ended them.

Darn, those pesky facts.

The actual bill never came to a vote. The vote to end debate failed to get 60 votes.

Well, it's not as if anyone would get up and say that. They are all politicians after all. Bush seemed uncomfortable, like he just wanted to get out of there. Perhaps it has taken it's toll on him after all.

psst, time to end this thread, spoiler, Obama won fair and square by a landslide both times.
Not a landslide when it's only 3 million more votes in a population of over 300 million.

He mostly won the liberal states in the Northwest, the liberal states in the Midwest and the liberal states along the West Coast which happen to have the largest populations.

Florida and a few other states were a fluke but only means the mindset of too many Americans is even more worrisome.

Romney, unfortunately, proved to be the wrong candidate. He let too many golden opportunities slip by.

Obama's "get out the vote campaign" was also three years in the making.

Nevertheless, no landslide. That's much too big of a stretch.

Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor expressed doubt Friday about the decision to take the 2000 Bush v. Gore case that resulted in the election of President George W. Bush.

"It took the case and decided it at a time when it was still a big election issue," O'Connor told the Chicago Tribune editorial board in an interview. "Maybe the court should have said,'We're not going to take it, goodbye.'"

"Obviously the court did reach a decision and thought it had to reach a decision," she said. "It turned out the election authorities in Florida hadn't done a real good job there and kind of messed it up. And probably the Supreme Court added to the problem at the end of the day."

the popular vote does not decide elections, the ELECTORAL VOTE does, even if Romney won the popular vote he wouldn't win the election, Obama won overwhelmingly the electoral votes in both elections to secure the presidency.
