The three blackest states are Mississippi (37%), Louisiana (32%), and Georgia (30.5%).
By contrast, California is only 6.2% black.
Okay, & that may explain those states but what about the other states Utah, the Dakota's, Washington, Oregon etc... predominately white & all fall in the category of receiving more than they put in. You shot your own theory down trying to name states &, bolstered mine! Just admit your wrongs instead of wallowing in your own shit.

Where is that plan? Show me what Republicans did to stop the spiraling costs of health insurance & healthcare, to make sure everyone had access?
Border is more secure today that under Bush.
Republicans only believe in hard wrk if it includes less pay & fewer benefits.
Exemptions were given to allow more time. Some were under long term contracts.
When Congressmen & their staff utilize the exchanges, they will be covered by the federal government at the same rate they are now. Its called a benefit for working.
Got anymore baloney?
Show me Davey Boie where Republicans or Demorats for that matter have any say legally or otherwise on what is charged for a service in private industry? The border is still as pourous as it was under President Bush, nothing has changed. The Demorats need voters, and little or no enforcement benefits them.

Hillary would have done a better job.
She knew another version of her own health care reform but with a different name which was rejected by both democrats and republicans shouldn't have come before jobs and the economy as a priority after the bottom fell out.
She wouldn't have dragged corrupt Chicago politicians to D.C. who went about not letting a good crisis go to waste for personal and political gain.
Hillary at least knew the score and would have led the country in our best interests instead of hers.

Moslem Brother Hood terrorist: An American al-Qaeda terrorist has called for more attacks on Western diplomats in the Arab world, praising the killers of the US ambassador to Libya on Sept. 11 last year, a US-based monitoring group said on Sunday.
Western nations shut embassies across the Middle East and North Africa early this month, after a warning of a possible terror attack. Many have reopened, and Britain said its Yemen embassy would open on Sunday after being closed for 12 days.
Adam Gadahn, a registered democrat and a California-born convert to Islam with a $1 million US price on his head, appealed to wealthy Moslems to offer terrorists rewards to kill ambassadors in the region, citing bounty set for killing the US ambassador to Yemen, Washington-based SITE monitoring group said.
"These prizes have a great effect in instilling fear in the hearts of our cowardly enemies," Gadahn said in the 39-minute video recording in Arabic posted on websites used by Islamist terrorists, according to SITE.
"They also encourage hesitant individuals to carry out important and great deeds in the path of Allah," he said, in an English transcript on SITE.
So, you ought to be happy that President Obama has brought the U S troops out and back home and showed caution at putting new troops in harm's way in any new battlefield ops without serious planning and operational support. It is far better now under Obama as Commander in Chief than the reckless , shoot-from-the-hip unplanned military knee-jerk reactions under George W Bush .

How many new plants are actually under construction?
$30 billion is inadequate.
Meanwhile, the government effectively caused the closing of San Onofre by refusing to allow the plant to operate at reduced power.
I believe there are six units underway.

$30 billion in government intrusion not enough for ya?

I tend to agree with this. Should the clown used a white mask of Obama? Wouldn't that have actually been racist?

We have a black president and a long tradition of lampooning our Presidents. Kinda reminds me of those wheelchair races they used to stage on the WH lawn.

Obama's were more costly. Look it up.

We will soon start answering to the 159 new agencies, programs, and bureaucracies authorized under Obamacare and complying with the 12,000 pages — and counting — of new regulations.

Pretty sure Obama's going to beat Bush's by the end of next year.

David Plouffe Nails the GOP with the Truth:‘Republicans Don’t Have a Product to Sell’

Republicans argued with Plouffe today — talking over him, disagreeing with him, getting nasty, the usual — but what they still don’t see is it doesn’t matter if they talk over him and it doesn’t matter if the media does their usual lazy reporting and thus labels Plouffe’s statements as partisan. Plouffe was correct. 2008 proved it. 2012 proved it. And Plouffe is correct again. Even insider Republicans are admitting that the party is heading for “disaster” now.

If elected Republicans want to ignore reality again, it is at their own peril and it costs David Plouffe nothing. The Obama team figured out during the 2012 campaign that they couldn’t stop the Romney surrogates from hiding in delusion and why bother trying — It cost them nothing. In fact, if anything, Republicans never saw Obama coming because they weren’t watching the real landscape. They were too busy living in their pretend world of unskewed polls and dirty tricks of trying to keep people who don’t vote Republican from voting. These are the tactics of a party that does not have a product to sell.

Priebus believes opening field offices in areas where minorities reside is going to fix the problem that minorities tend to not support policies that are bad for them. If the contest were won by who shouted the loudest and who lied to themselves the best, Priebus and the Republicans would be a sure thing.

The key word was "unskilled" and your comment was, "Yeah, like medical transcription"...and then added "a dying art".

Ok.

Significant Rules require review by OIRA:

Bush 1st term: 2710

Obama 1st term: 2449

Significant Rules have an annual effect on the economy of >$100 million or adversely affect the economy in a material way, create a serious inconsistency or interference with other agencies, materially alter the budgetary impact of entitlements, and so on.
