Sure Carol, but who are people blaming? 22% is also an average of polls showing approval ratings for Republicans in Congress. Even the Fox poll which typically skews to the right only gives them 24% approval.<quoted text>
A new Gallup poll shows only 22% of Americans are happy with the direction of the country. 75% are dissatisfied.
So we're all kind of feeling the same way you are right now. Except the ones on here who belong in the 22% group. But they're in denial. It's sometimes very hard to admit you've been wrong.

You were the poster to whom I directed the challenge to point out another president whose father was not American-born..."unless you know of another one besides this one."
That's not a lie...son. It was a challenge.
Sonic named Chester Arthur, so you weren't up to the challenge. You were probably a poor student too.
But I will also remind you that Chester Arthur's father was not a Muslim bigamist who married his mother while being married to another woman, and there was no speculation of an avowed Communist being Arthur's real father who looked very much like him.
And Chester Arthur's father was pro-capitalism.
Still trying to get over yourself, I hope?

Anti-Obamacare Rage, Once a GOP Hit, Fizzles Despite Town Halls
Heritage Action may be launching town halls against the health-care law, but the rage that fueled the Tea Party wave has died downand even Republicans are starting to walk away.
Next to impossible, said Tea Party favorite Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI), when asked about the odds of repealing the Affordable Care Act. Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) said much the same thing last month:Listen, as long as Barack Obama is president, the Affordable Care Act is going to be law. And even Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), the closest thing to a Tea Party avatar, has voiced skepticism that the law can be stopped. Asked by Fox News Sean Hannity about his support for the defunding strategy proposed by Senate conservatives, Paul said that while he supports it, he may not be able to guarantee victory.
None of that has deterred Cruz, Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), and Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who are the main advocates behind the defund strategy. Nor has it stopped House Republicans from floating Obamacare repeal as a condition for lifting the debt ceiling this fall, despite the odd timing of the demand. By the time Congress needs to lift the debt limit, the federal health-care exchanges would have already gone online.
...Heritage, then, can play as many of the old tunes as it likes. When Oct. 1 comes, the Affordable Care Act will be there, ready to confer benefits, provide security, and begin the slow transformation of American health care.

As long as species have been evolving, species have been going extinct. It is estimated that over 99.9% of all species that ever lived are extinct.

i may continue? thank you sir....
Freddie Mac recently began 25 initiatives around the country to dismantle barriers and create greater opportunities for homeownership. One of the programs is designed to help deserving families who have bad credit histories to qualify for homeownership loans.
"The Bush administration took a lot of pride that home ownership had reached historic highs," Snow said during an interview. "But what we forgot in the process was that it has to be done in the context of people being able to afford their house. We now realize there was a high cost."
Lawrence Lindsay, Bush's first chief economic adviser, said there was little impetus to raise alarms about the proliferation of easy credit that was helping Bush meet housing goals.
"No one wanted to stop that bubble," Lindsay said. "It would have conflicted with the president's own policies."

Carol do you even realize that the majority of SNAP beneficiaries are children? Of course not because you're an idiot. Once again you've demonstrated that your pro life beliefs end when a child is born. You don't give a crap about whether they're getting proper nutrition or medical care afterwards. You're a fraud.
Also you couldn't answer the original inquiry so you tried to change the subject like you always do.

Once again stupid, sequestration was a Republican idea.
Since: Jun 13
#967201 Aug 20, 2013
Any effort to cut the federal deficit and spending is a good thing.
The Democrats are the ones who keep dragging their feet.
Congress was tasked in 2011 to find cuts and figure out how to implement the cuts called for in the Budget Control Act.
Obama signed it into law.
They were unable to reach a bipartisan agreement on cutting $1.2 trillion from the deficit.
As usual, Obama said "it's my way or no way" and Republicans said "okay, it's no way then."
But before the sky really DIDN'T fall, Obama sure did try to scare us into thinking it would because of those mean old bad republicans who never give him everything he wants.
With the threat of automatic sequestration still looming, No luck so far. So, while sequestration was never intended to actually go into effect, it now most likely will.
(Again, though, I notice no source to support your claim...not that I don't believe you...)

how is shooting an unarmed 13 year old black kid not a hate crime?
though it's a damn shame that white on white isn't a hate crime. with the way you folks act about how killing any white person must be a hate crime, seems a logical step.

I don't do this with comfort. Ann Dunham isn't too different than some other people I've known in my life. They use her to reinforce the obvious fraud that is Obama's promoted life. The evidence indicates a completely different story.
I detest frauds. Obama is a fraud. In the normal situation, I would not include any other individual in the condemnation of a fraud. However, this fraud is being used to destroy this country. This is not the normal situation of encountering a fraud.
There may be an afterlife where our life becomes inconsequential. What was, was. It was the life we lived. It has no significance in the afterlife. It's only significance is among the living.
To me, it is more disgusting that the Democrats create a lie out of her life. I feel sorrow for the life she was forced to live. She was duped, and paid for it with a life that was not happy for her. I condemn the people that duped her into believing what they promoted to her for their own personal enjoyment/pleasure/agenda.
She was just another victim of the communist lie and social engineering agenda falacy. She paid for it with the sadness her life obviously was.
How would any woman feel if they became pregnant, then dumped, then arranged to marry someone of convenience, then sent halfway around the world to a third world country in Africa to have a baby?
It seems to me her life was that of desperation and survival as best as can be done given the situation people like Frank Marshal Davis created for her.
There is a special place in heaven for people who were made to suffer like her.

I see no problem with us lefties being hypocrites. So many things that we didn't mind before (like making fun of the President), bother us now. So many things that we did mind before (like war), don't bother us now.
Like when George Bush was in office, we liberals regularly compared him to Hitler, speculated that he was behind 9/11, fantasized about murdering him and generally talked about him like he was the Son of Satan.
This was called "speaking the truth to power."
Then Barack Obama came into office and ironically, dissent isn't so patriotic anymore. Suddenly we Democrats and liberals became angry, humorless scolds who believe that the President of United States is beyond criticism.
Of course, the truth is that we haven't changed at all; we're just hypocrites.
#967205 Aug 20, 2013
If you want to see how hypocritical and oversensitive to criticism we liberals can be, here's an example.
Get the rodeo clown!: Rodeo clown Tuffy Gessling put on an Obama mask at the Missouri State Fair and asked the enthusiastic people in the crowd if they'd like to see Obama run down by a bull.
Nothing racist was said, no threats were made, and of course, Obama wasn't in the ring.
It was a harmless bit of mockery of the President that had been done previously to George H. W. Bush with no outcry.
In this case, the Democratic governor and senator of the state condemned Gessling, he was banned for life from the Missouri State Fair, and the head of the Missouri NAACP called it a "hate crime" while asking for the Secret Service and NAACP to investigate.

Now why would you be worried about this? Aren't you the same person that tried to argue me down about global warming? When will you all realize that everything on earth is inner connected &, in some sense, 1 thing is the food to another? There's a guy on the internet that called every city that was going to be hit hard by tornados 3 days before they hit. He's not a psychic, he didn't make predictions. He simply identified the hot spots left by chemtrails. 1 by 1, he pointed out every city 3 days in advance. The more man fucks with the earth, the more the entire economical system is destroyed &, affected. Same goes with nature & it's forces! I remember telling you about this ( all the animals dying) in a previous discussion on global warming. Now you've read the words of a whiteman, you're worried!

Obama/Liberals new job program Welfare really pays off!! A New York mother of two is eligible for $38,000 in welfare benefits a sum more than the annual salary of New York entry level school teacher!! Todays Liberals Motto is Its not what you can do for your country but what your government can do for you

Hi my name is Ted Cruz, I am running to be your president, please won't you join me in a rousing rendition of my home country's national anthem -
O Canada! Our home and native land
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise
The true north, strong and free
From far and wide, O Canada
We stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free
O Canada! We stand on guard for thee
O Canada! We stand on guard for thee.
O Canada! Terre de nos aieux
Ton front est ceint de fleurons glorieux!
Car ton bras sait porter l'épée
Il sait porter la croix!
Ton histoire est une épopée
Des plus brilliants exploix.
Et ta valeur, de foi trempée
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits
Protégera nos foyers et nos droits.
