You know, believe it or not, there was a time when presidents didn't get involved in the daily lives of Americans. They left local things to local people. This clown interjects himself into places not needed or wanted. He should run the country and leave the local stuff to the locals.

<quoted text>Romney's lying campaign in 2012 was nauseating to see and I'm baffled that no republicans who criticized Romney on other political faults had not called him out on his lying.
Ron Paul called him a liar to his face during one of the debates and laughed at him in all of the debates. Rick Perry also got after Mitt, Hah.

Romney is only one for four in politics, people just don't like that guy. The Repubs once again chose the wrong guy and then the guy chose the wrong running mate.(In McCain's case accepted the wrong running mate)

But Willard will make up for it during his upcoming Utah splash.

Golfing with Rand Paul?

Shooting with Paul Ryan?

Horseback riding with Mimi?

Sounds like a gathering of Red Hat Ladies.

IRS, AP and Benghazi Show the Failure of Obama's BIG Government

BIG Government Makes For BIG Obama Screw ups and More Waste...

The leadership failures and bureaucratic dysfunction exposed by the Internal Revenue Service scandal should be a wake up call to anybody who believes BIG government can solve this nation's problems.

How can an "impotent" bureaucracy with "poor management" and the IRS with its "capacity for incompetence and stupidity," as left-leaning commentators David Ignatius and Ruth Marcus both wrote in the Washington Post last week, possibly be trusted to take on the Obama's ambitious agenda?

If the IRS example teaches us anything, consider this a wonderful teaching opportunity to remind people that the IRS is the dysfunctional enforcement agency of Obamacare giving an inefficient organization more responsibility makes it more likely to screw up, not better able to help people or solve this nation's problems.

Now we have not just BIG government, but BIG brother running BIG government.

It's the culture...

Obama's woes flow out of BIG government philosophy...

The latest problems with the IRS witch hunt, the seizure of phone records from The Associated Press, the conflicting Benghazi stories and disastrous attempts to enforce Obamacare may all seem unrelated, but they are not.

Each of these events is the direct byproduct of two central philosophies of the Obama administration -- the massive expansion of the size and power of the federal government and a lack of trust in the American people.

These scandals were bound to happen. In fact, it was inevitable, and there will be more. President Obama has grown the size, the scope, the debt and the power of the federal government to such irresponsible proportions that problems like these are an inevitable result.

Now we have not just BIG government, but BIG brother running BIG government.

So what did they have in mind to remove Saddam from power and initiate a democratic government to replace his regime? Ask them nicely? I'm sure the insurgents would have politely stepped aside and Saddam willingly allowed himself to be led away in handcuffs.

This is just how naive Democrats are.

They can bark real loud but when it comes to putting their teeth into anything that might upset their base and their precious seats of power, they whimper and pee their pants.

You should be embarrassed just by association.

Like the Terri Shiavo case? Oh, wait, just when was that...and I'm really sorry you know so little about miscarriages and presume you know everything about everything...also, in the Blankenship case, just because some of his cronies are equally guilty does not make him innocent.

Yeah, you're probably right, insurance companies always like to settle quickly to protect their reputations.

No, insurance companies always like to settle quickly to minimize their losses.

There's probably a joke in there somewhere__maybe Peppy can find it.
The story seems strange, but is apparently true, with little public awareness of the potential dangers.

So, be careful what you eat.

The war on women is real and continuing. Women know this; but you and Jane are haters of women. Goes with the republican territory.
What is 'it' lily? a dead baby? wouldn't any normal woman, who has suffered a miscarriage, WANT to go to the hospital? Wait you are saying liberal women don't care about anything. Just flush and go to the bar--sounds probable.

A person doesn't have to be covered by an employer or the government to have health insurance. An ignoranmus who values concerts and lattes more than their health deserves to be targeted.
I'm tired of having tax payer dollors pay for their free emergency room visits and wouldn't mind seeing them turned away at the hospital door if they couldn't prove they were financially able to pay. Guess one could refer to that as "Preventive Maintenance".
Besides the thousands who got waivers to save themselves from this monstrosity and the states who were smart enough to opt out - if you and every other person in this country doesn't have some sort of insurance - personal, employer, government or otherwise - on January 1, the IRS is going to make you and anyone else pay for this blatant disobedience.

A homeless man was asked on the street if he supported Obamacare. He said he was all for it. But when asked if he was prepared to pay a fine for not having it, he looked puzzled and said "I don't have any money...how are they going to get it from me!"

Welcome to the wonderful and confusing world of Obamacare. That poor man doesn't even have a computer - much less would know how to fill out a 20-page online application to get Obamacare.

But you can bet the IRS doesn't care about any of that. So what are they going to do when thousands and thousands of others simply don't pay up?

Suckerberg didn't swindle anyone, but I can understand if you're still jealous...how about all the SNL cast that either are or soon will be multi-millionaires? I was just rebutting someone's asinine notion that wearing a hoodie made a person a thug...it's also ludicrous the number of right-wing socks on here who assume anyone who disagrees with them is black...just a thought, but you're never going to retake the White House with that kind of bigotry fueled by stupidity.
