WTF is wrong with you people.
You want to a see a stupid, uninformed voter Carol? Look ion the mirror. Almost everything you post is a lie or misinformation.
Wouldn't put it past the unions and ACORN to have rounded up every Alzheimer's patient they could find too and told them if they pull the lever with Barack Obama's name beside it, they'd get a cookie.

Lie...cheat...steal...whatever . The Democratic platform.

Remember Hillary Clinton after being run over by the Democratic platform in 2008?

Senate Republican 'Lynch Mob' Rails Against Ted Cruz

""WASHINGTON -- A group of Senate Republicans, including Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), railed against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) at a private luncheon on Wednesday, according to The New York Times, which cited two unnamed people who were present.

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) presented a Senate Conservatives Fund printout that logged 25 Senate Republicans -- including Ayotte and McConnell -- as voting for cloture on Sunday in what the group said was supporting Obamacare, "betraying their principles" and "giving Democrats the power," the newspaper reported.

When Ayotte asked whether Cruz would repudiate the Senate Conservatives Fund's attack, Cruz responded, "I will not," an attendee told Politico.

At that point, McConnell, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) and others joined in lashing Cruz, leader of the anti-Obamacare showdown that spiraled into the government shutdown. "It just started a lynch mob," one senator told the Times.

The clash shows some Republican senators have lost patience with Cruz, who has failed to reveal a strategy to win his goal of defunding Obamacare.

“It was very evident to everyone in the room that Cruz doesn’t have a strategy -– he never had a strategy, and could never answer a question about what the end-game was,” one senator told Politico.“I just wish the 35 House members that have bought the snake oil that was sold could witness what was witnessed today at lunch.”

Conservatives outside the Senate have taken swings at Cruz as well. Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, said Cruz "pushed House Republicans into traffic and wandered away." Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.) accused the "Ted Cruz wing" of trying to "hijack" the Republican Party.""

Obama will win this fight and split the Repugnants into various factions, with the Teabaggers breaking away and forming the American Communist Tea Party.

I had a dinner last night at restaurant A & paid $35,00. It was a lot higher than the $8,95 I paid at restaurant B last week.
Does it make any difference that last night there was live entertainment & I had a full course steak dinner and last week at Restaurant B I had the soup & salad at Olive Garden?
Humans eat for only two reasons...
1) for fuel
2) for the taste
both will keep you alive, one healthy and the other, will have you stuck on Obamacare....

Obama & the DemokRATS fear the Tea Party movement, hence the corruption in the IRS and the IRS Commissioner meeting with the White House over 100 times.

So why do polls put the blame on Repugnants by over 70%??

Why are Repugnants in the House bailing on the shutdown?? 21 so far. Enough to pass a clean bill if Bonehead allows it.

Could it be that smokey Lorac is talking thru her ass again?? Likely!!

Do you ever stop to realize how patently stupid your utterances are??
It appears not. You're like a never ending ignorance machine.
The only dumb and dumber part is the Teabagger Party.
They're about to get stomped by rational Repugnants.
Nixon won a second term too, you blockhead. No offense.

Nixon just wasn't insulated in an opposition-proof bomb shelter by the liberal media like this one is.

But even conservatives had enough sense to know he had to go after electing him a second time.

Unlike the dumb and dumber on your side of the fence, blind loyalty isn't our thing. Looking out for the country is.

If congress is responsible for obama's govt shut down, then Majority leaders Pelosi and Reid are responsible in 2007--2009 losing 750,000 jobs per month, creating the worst recession in 80+ years you ignorant idiot demokRATs created... Blame the demokRATs that created the recession .... yet liberals blame Congress today for all the woes of obama....

Most American now see demokRATS for what they truly are: losers and obstructionists.

If it's ghetto, ignorant, and idiot, it's free cheese, loser, and liberal..

300 million. Wrong. Look it up.
It's besides any point, as only 129 million Americans voted in the 2012 election.
5 million is a pretty sizable margin, considering all right wing media were predicting a landslide for Mitt.
Hell, your buddy Dweeb was printing tickets to Rmoney's inauguration!!
Funny how you change your tune and make up lies after your fantasies are destroyed.
Obama won by a larger majority than Bush in 2004. Bush, of course, lost the popular vote to Gore in 2000.
You're a very angry loser, much like your hero O'reilly.
take out the black vote and idiots like you and would obama have won?

Remember Gingrinch after getting steamrolled by Rmoney's money??

""Asked by correspondent Norah O’Donnell if he thought Romney was a liar, Gingrich said bluntly,“Yes.”

The candidate brushed up against this charge on Sunday, calling Romney “somebody who will lie to you to get to be president, will lie to you when they are president.” On CBS he was explicit.

Well, you seem shocked by it!” Gingrich exclaimed.“Which part of what I just said to you is false? Why is it that if I’m candid in person and I wanted to be honest in person, that’s shocking ... In the traditional Washington pattern it’s better to be sweet and honest and have this face of saying,‘Oh, gee, we want to be nice to each other no matter what happens to the American people.’”

You lose again, Lorac.

The over 300 million figure was the entire population.

But did it ever occur to you that a significant number of those in the 5 million margin simply fell for the Democratic platform?

Cause there sure was a whole lot of lying and cheating going on. Hillary was a victim of her own party's platform in 2008.

What polls (plural), mental case?

A plurality of Americans, 44%, say Republicans deserve more blame for the government shutdown, according to a new CBS poll. But, a surprising 35% believe President Obama, who has publicly refused to negotiate with the GOP, deserves more of the blame over the shutdown.

Because most Americans are too easily distracted and the liberal media use that to their advantage on behalf of their boss, the one they got elected.

But a nice piece of pie sounds good after dinner tonight.
