Whoa whoa wait... You are telling me that you are all complaining about Obama "only" getting 51%(really closer to 52%) of the popular vote while ignoring the electoral college but have the galls to link to a site that shows (according to your logic) the so called "landslide" victory of Reagan at 50.7%.

For god's sake how about you try to keep it some consistency here, which is more important, the popular vote or the electoral college's vote? because clearly Obama won both easily.

Yes, but the Governor decides on executions, Bush was that decider.
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.

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."

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.
