I would NEVER, under any circumstances, vote for a republican again. Never, ever. I believe in equal right for all. I believe in women's rights. I believe in taking care of the less fortunate amongst us. I do not believe in elitism,etc. In other words, I support everything Republicans are against.
You failed to know a historical fact so you do a stompy feet rant.

This is rational to you?

<quoted text>you want so badly to paint Obama as just another 'Bush ' that you ignore the significant differences in the Obama moderate , multi-lateral foreign policy approach. For one, Obama hasn't shifted from his belief that economic sanctions, U S pressure, and promoting international solidarity in support of international norms of order and war can still work to force Assad to end his chemical and nuclear programs--- it worked in Iraq with Hussein ending his own chemical and nuke programs ,but Bush&Cheney chose to deny that success so as to promote preventive war instead. I have yet to see one bit of evidence that Obama has given up on a multi-lateral approach and choose a military unilateralism instead. "Far from callous moral indifference, however, President Obama’s foreign policy appears to be motivated by a profound commitment to prudence—the acceptance of a fact that makes neo-cons writhe: that America’s ability to accomplish good is limited and that the world is complicated. In an interview at the end of January, President Obama described his struggle with the relationship between U.S. power and the evil of the world.“A big chunk of my day,” he explained, is occupied by news of war, terrorism, ethnic clashes, violence done to innocents. And what I have to constantly wrestle with is where and when can the United States intervene or act in ways that advance our national interest, advance our security, and speak to our highest ideals and sense of common humanity. And as I wrestle with those decisions, I am more mindful probably than most of not only our incredible strengths and capabilities, but also our limitations.

<quoted text> You fail to admit the facts that employers have been cutting permanent jobs and shifting to part-time temps for a long time before Obamacare was ever passed. It has been a well-planned company management policy to keep laboring wages depressed and cut safety and health investments to the bone to preserve more profits going to executive salaries and benefits and top shareholders no matter whether the company may be failing .
So you fail to learn from History because someone else did it?
Real intelligent...
Or, is it a lack of intelligence?

The sole purpose of business is to provide a return to shareholders.

At least Reagan had a profession. Our current president, nobama is a proven failure. A little boy unable to do a man's job. I will say this, about nobama, he has fooled you, an easy job in as much as you are a fool. You are in love with an admitted hard drug user and one who has indulged in homosexual acts. One who is a flip flopper, you know as when he was against same sex marriage before he was for it, one who promised to get those who killed American's in Benghazi and did nothing, the one who drew a red line in the sand and then denied it, or the one who told putin before he was re-elected that when he won his second term he would have more freedom to act, and look at that situation now, putin laughs at our president.
Son, you have to get your head out of your behind.

Right wing nuts support austerity. Their worship for the 1% has produced dire consequences which these buffoons still seek to expand.
Buffet stated that we here in the USA are in a race, war within ourselves. War of the classes and his class is winning ! Want to know the score?

Buffet loss credibility with the LIE about the secretary salary and his failure to pay the IRS more money though he expected others to do so.

Nothing is more insufferable than a pompous ass who fails to look in the mirror.

They now have universal single payer healthcare and a high minimum wage; and I think free university education; not sure, but don't think he can mess with that. His views on women are sexist and backward, like most rightwingers who are so threatened by women.
