Barack Obama, our next President

Please tell us what fucking budgets you're talking about.
We haven't even had a goddam budget since Obama took office, idiot. That's our biggest problem.
And, you haven't got a clue about inflation. How about you put some numbers in your post to back your bullshit up.
Price of milk in 2008 was ________.
Price of milk today is _________.
for example. Tell us the real story about inflation.
You know, some real information.
Hey moron, How about the deficit when Bush stole the election and took over, along with a record surplus and about zero wars when Bush took over, how about all the men and women sacrificed by his incompetence? Tell us how his love for big corporation and deregulation Wall Street helped ruin the economy, then tell us that none of that played a role in the mess Obama inherited, tell us just how much the Republican controlled Congress has fought tooth and nail against any and everything that would help the recovery. Why any rational person would want the likes of Bush-and murdering snarley Cheney back in power is beyond stupid. Why is it that every recession and depression has followed an eight year reign of Republican lack of leadership? Dumbazz.

Why does Homer love subsidies?
Bah, Republicans love subsidies too except theirs are for the rich, Homer is okay with subsidies for the poor and the farmers.

Once we stop spending money overseas then you can come talk to me about subsidies.

Sometimes you give me no choice but to think you're just joking.
If everyone knew what Hitler was up to, do you honestly think he would have been exalted by the Germans as their "great leader"?
Why would his own SS men try and assassinate him when they finally figured it out?
They were loyal up until that point too.
So you must be joking.
Anyone reading the above can observe your grasp of German History.

List one book you have read
on World War II or Hitler?

Do not count the ones you colored in!:-)

Just 33 percent of Americans approve of the Supreme Court's decision to overturn a key part of the Voting Rights Act, a cornerstone of the civil rights movement aimed at preventing racial discrimination at the ballot box.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll finds that 51 percent disapprove of the decision, with 15 percent undecided. Republicans are about equally divided on the decision, with large margins of independents and Democrats disapproving of it.
http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/news/americans-gr...
Interestingly all of those 33%ers post on this thread.
Reporting poll results without providing the question asked is sloppy reporting.

Besides, with the Voting Rights Act, it is doubtful that 10% of the respondents to the poll even understand the issue.

Former President George W. Bush praises President Obama on counterterrorism and immigration reform

Touching wiping tears away BIRDS OF A FEATHER Bush say Obama is doing everything I did and continues the Same policies
If you have the ability to read Bush's statement carefully, you will see that Bush did not imply either approval or disapproval of Obama's actions.

Well, Homer, if you spent, say, an hour doing a little research, you'd find that Rahm Emmanuel actually did send a dead fish to one of his opponents in Chicago. And you would find that Tony Rezko was sent to prison for real estate criminality of which Obama was a client. And you would find that Bill Ayres is an unrepentant domestic terrorists who would have killed innocent people had not three of his own got blown up instead. And you would find that Valerie Jarrett is a notorious slumlord in Chicago.
You would also find that Van Jones claimed to be an avowed communist and was forced to resign as an Obama advisor after it was exposed and Anita Dunn praised the philosophy of Mao Tse-Tung before having to resign too.
It's also very easy to find that Obama won unopposed twice in the Illinois Senate and also in the U.S. Senate because of scandals that emerged about his opponents of which Axelrod was allegedly the mastermind.
Don't you read anything besides the dailykos.com ?
Several of us have posted very credible sources surrounding these people over the years. You didn't even click on one of them to confirm or deny it?
You clicked the denial key instead, didn't you?
Help me help you, Homer. I'm trying as hard as I can.

Jessica, got her college degree, teaches school and is considered a hero in West Virginia___a hero on par with Herschel "Woody" Williams.
Good for her.
The only purpose of an army is to kill people and break things.

<quoted text> Obama didn't surrender shit! Bush set the date for removal when he realized we were in a never ending war.
Do you ever listen to yourself?
Let's review some history....

There is a request for surge troops.
Obama takes office and begins his dither period, during which he orders all combat against Al Qaeda and the Taliban in the mountains to cease, and all US forces to retreat to the population centers.
Then Obama states: "The Taliban will be part of the future government of Afghanistan."
Then Obama gives the Taliban (and Al Qaeda because they are one in the same) "safe passage" throughout Afghanistan.

When Obama took office, the Taliban and Al Qaeda were confined to the caves in the mountainous tribal region between Afghanistan and Pakistan.(Pull out your Patriot's Guide to the War Map and look where you put your pins to mark locations of combat and compare the locations of your pins before and after Obama took office, idiot.)
Today the Taliban and Al Qaeda are bombing every village throughout Afghanistan.
... and the Afghans are sometimes convinced we're on the side of the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

Obama is surrendering the United States to the Arab muslim jihad.

... which brings us to another question you idiots ran away from:

Why do we need to talk to the Taliban? If Obama wants to get out of Afghanistan, just pack up and leave. We can be completely out of Afghanistan in less than a month.
... unless the real intent is to sabotage the Karzai government and turn the country back over to the Taliban and Al Qaeda.

President Obama isn't a big fan of free trade, but there's one thing he's striving mightily to export - homosexual rights (and sometimes homosexuals). It's not a big seller in the developing world. See Homey they aren't so dumb.

SURPLUS. OMG-it has been months since an idiot used that one. But it always sneaks in there in the liberal mind. ROTFLMAO.

Please inform the class how much the surplus was-and how much the debt was-just for grins and giggles. You can do it.

Zimmerman stalked him, provoked him, and then shot him. Second degree murder sounds about right.
I agree, although I would like to see Zimmerman get a worse sentence. How many of us would not at some point confront someone that was obviously following you? Even if a fight starts does that give the other one the right to kill you, especially since he was the initiater? I personally can't see how any juror can find Zimmerman innocent since he was the stalker and his actions alone caused the death of a young man that was minding his own business. Pretty obvious to impartial people.

Do you mean the election when the Democrats were busted stealing votes in the recount?("Blizzard of chad"??? Is that the election you're talking about?)

Do you mean the surplus caused by the Republican Congress that Clinton had to be dragged kicking and screaming to?

Do you mean the "zero wars" when Al Qaeda was bombing us as if they were on a schedule?

Do you mean Bush ended those "zero wars" by arranging for Al Qaeda to kill 3000 Americans?

Do you mean the economic collapse caused by the Democrats' Marxist subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that the Republicans gave to the Democrats in exchange for the Democrats supporting the war in Iraq that collapsed our economy after two years of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank?

Do you listen to yourself... when your ear doesn't have male genetalia in it?

There is no data as to how many democrats were over-sampled...can you find that information-it is not attached to the poll.
