The Dems are doing a good job of assisting the Reps.
In order to retake the House Dems need a certain number of Reps to vote for a Dem in heavy republican areas.
Calling people terrorist, extremist, etc ensures those votes won't come
The margin of blame is narrowing in the polls.

Amazing that liberals - especially Obama and Reid - refuse to acknowledge this.

But doesn't it seem like we have two presidents now? You can't say Obama without saying Reid as part of the power elite.

Reid said he still wouldn't pass the House bill to temporarily increase the debt ceiling even if Obama did just because Republicans insist on having a few concessions in this monstrosity called health care reform.

Who's running this show anyway?

Not that I agree with the poster your responded to, but you are not fairing well here.
Obama did not create races-America has always been a melting pot of various cultures and races.
You really should research " blind racism." You folks on here suffer from it seriously. Yes, America's always been a melting pot of races but, with a white first mentality. If someone has a different belief system that you, they're all of a sudden Satanist, terrorist, bad people in general. If someone doesn't follow your traditions, they're all of a sudden anti American. You for one, see the racism everyday right here on this thread. The average person would've already understood they're on the wrong side, after seeing that it's mostly republicans spewing racist comments on a daily basis. Instead you encourage &, agree with these assholes as if you feel the same. What's that make you?

But Obamacare has Obama's name in it. It's his "legacy" of having fundamentally transformed this country into the hands of the power elite and the IRS.
However, it should have been called Pelosicare...or Reidcare...or more accurately PelosiReidcare.
Blue Dog Democrats are probably still screaming into their pillows knowing they accepted the bribes from Pelosi behind locked doors to just get enough democratic votes to pass the darn thing.
Our Blue Dog Dem didn't bother to run after this debacle.

The bill was written by a bunch of special interests groups including AARP, unions, some insurance providers, etc. It was a big candy store where every interest group attempted to be the winners while their competitors would be losers.

It comes as no surprise to me that it cannot be implemented as written.

1-800-T-O-T-A-L-F-A-I-L: One Man's Obamawreck Nightmare

Behold the Hollywood bubble. This week, actress Olivia Wilde starred in an Obamacare propaganda video targeting young people.

"You can sign up for health care online in 10 minutes," her co-propagandist chirped as she cheered. Cue the laugh track.

Back on planet Earth, Americans nationwide are still struggling with the $634 million online health care exchange nightmare.

22 million citizens in the private individual market for health insurance recently received their You Can't Keep It cancellation notices.

Pinocchio Obama sure lied about that.

You'll have to define what "acting as aggressors" means. If someone sees another person who appears unusual, if they begin a conversation with that person, are they an "aggressor" just because they spoke to that person?
Then, can the person being spoken to use the "Stand Your Ground" law to shoot that person just because they spoke to them, thus according to some definition, speaking to someone is an act of agression?
This case; to me was a clear case that the shooter was the aggressor, but he was acquitted:

Shooter acquitted in west Boca road rage trial

Retired dentist Wayne Tover claimed self-defense in 2010 incident

Attorney Richard Lubin, left, with his client, Wayne Tover, a 66-year-old retired dentist from Long Island, on the first day of Tover's trial at the Palm Beach County Courthouse in downtown West Palm Beach on Monday, Sept. 16th, 2013. Tover is charged with taking out a .357 Smith & Wesson revolver while driving his Cadillac XLR convertible and firing at a Hyundai with four occupants on Glades Road, near State Road 7.

September 27, 2013|By Marc Freeman, Sun Sentinel

It was an extreme case of road rage — starting with a honking horn, flashing lights and angry words, and ending with four quick shots from an older driver's revolver.

But a Palm Beach County jury on Friday sided with gun-toting retiree Wayne Tover's claim of self-defense for the Sept. 18, 2010 confrontation in West Boca
A two-week trial ended with the jury of four women and two men agreeing that the 66-year-old former dentist from West Delray was protecting himself when he fired his licensed pistol into a car occupied by four young people.

The shooting left one person with bullet wounds that were not life-threatening, and another passenger with cuts from shattered glass. Prosecutor Aaron Papero argued it was an inexcusable act of violence, but the jurors delivered a not guilty verdict on the four felony counts.

Obama's continued government shutdown proves just how brown shirt the USA and demokRats have become since George Bush, comrade obama, denying people freedom, controlling peoples lives, and denying people their rights..

By executive order Comrade obama, can fund, close or open anything he chose you idiots...

Homer has been indoctrinated with Saul Alinsky tactics.
It's obvious a commie loving traitor like you was indoctrinated by Lavrenty Beria in your Soviet childhood. This is why you still support a Marxist Comunist like Vlad Putin.

Putin a real Cappitalist. He has actual Russian capitalists arrested and imprisoned so the Soviet State can steal their wealth.

As well as jailing young women for protesting and committing piracy on the high seas, assaulting and imprisoning Greenpeace protestors in Internatiional Waters.

Is Putin one of the ghosts you talk to in your TV??

One Man's Obamawreck Nightmare

"I live in New Jersey, but work for a small company based out of Massachusetts. For years, we were all insured through the company from a plan that originated in Massachusetts. However, as soon as Obamacare was passed, we were "audited" by the insurance company, and it turns out only 50 percent of our company is based in Massachusetts, and therefore we did not qualify as a company under the law. Apparently, you need 51 percent based in the state. About five days prior to our insurance policy renewal, we were told we could not (renew), and I had to scramble to purchase a much more expensive individual policy with much higher costs.

"Fast-forward two years. I now receive a new letter from my insurance company, Horizon Blue Cross,(informing me) that the plan that I have now is being discontinued and I need to pick a new plan.

"On Oct. 1, I tried to get into the exchange for New Jersey that is run by the federal government. I earn too much for a subsidy, but I wanted to see what my options were and how much more this was going to cost.

"I created an account and tried for four days to get in. Each time it said my password was invalid. I tried to use the "forgot password" option so they could send me a link to reset. When I got the link, the system kept saying that it didn't recognize my user account. When I tried to re-create the user account, it told me that one already existed. I called the number several times, and they all told me the same thing: Try back later. The glitches are being worked out.

"I (then) created a new account under (my wife's) name. After several attempts, I was able to get in. Over the weekend, I spent at least four hours trying to fill out the application. Each time, the website crashed. When I got back to work on Monday, I tried one more time. Lo and behold, the application was submitted. At this point, President Obama must be thinking 'great, a success story.'

"Well, my options came back, and voila: According to the government, I'm not eligible for any private plans. I received a notice that my entire family is only eligible for Medicaid! I make a decent salary. I'm not eligible for a subsidy, let alone Medicaid.

"This morning my wife received a call. Apparently, it was the exchange. She explained to them that we are not eligible for Medicare or Medicaid. The person on the phone told her, "That is what the system says you are eligible for. If you want, you can file an appeal."

"So now back to a change in plans. I currently have a Point of Service that covers benefits 70 percent after a large deductible, with somewhat large co-pays for doctors. Horizon Blue Cross does offer a similar plan (to the one being canceled) for about the same, but the problem is that my children's pediatricians are not in it (so much for keeping your doctors).

"The only plans that the doctors take involve a 40 percent deductible with higher co-pays. So now I have fewer options and not more. There is another new company offering coverage where I am, but it has zero out-of-network benefits and a smaller network. Either way, everything is changing for me with higher costs.

The whole process is a joke. The automatons who know nothing are just collecting a government check and getting health care paid for by me with my tax dollars, when I cannot even get my own."

In sum: Obama lied.
His health plan died.

In many cases you can't keep your doctors.

You can't sign up in 10 minutes for health care.

You're being steered toward a government plan you don't qualify for or want.

And you can't get your personal information back from the online Obamawreck black hole.

This book is used by community organizers.

The title of book is "Rules for Revolution"

Here is one of his key statements-

"The issue is never the issue. The issue is always about the Revolution"

To re-phrase: the issue is always about the final goals of the group.

Don't you wonder how we get into stupid debates about a whole $9 a month for birth control? This is an example of this rule in action.

Over 1000 pieces of legislation against womens rights to their bodies is what should be creepy to you. Various bills ranging from forced use of transvaginal probes, to forcing women to have their rapists babies. Calling all sexually active women whores and feminazis should be creepy to you.
But, keep it up; you'll never get a candidate in the White House for a long, long time. Thanks teabaggers; you're great. Talk about domestic terrorism!
