Did you happen to see the arrogant Magic Negro on tonight's news? He donned a green apron for the cameras at a volunteer kitchen for furloughed federal workers(who must be starving to death!!!!) and stood there mealy-mouthed talking about those bad Republicans.
The Liberal Media loves it when the Boy Wonder does his juvenile nyah-nyah routine.
This jerk doesn't know the first thing about the Constitution, the Separation of Powers or how American Government works. It is unimportant to the little boy. Instead, he wants it his way or it's the highway. His knees must be sore from all the foot-stomping he's been doing.
His photo ops won't compensate for his refusal to sit down and negotiate with Republicans so he wouldn't be wearing a green apron or his unconscionable blunder over the death benefits for those fallen soldiers or barricading war memorials...etc., etc., etc.

Americans have every reason to expect our president to have some integrity, except to libs who twice elected a serial sexual abuser and accused rapist. If Manson was released he'd be welcomed at most Hollywood parties.
Yes, they do. It used to be pretty high up on the list of presidential characteristics and qualities.

It still is for most of us.

I honestly see less damage to the country is we just keep hobbling along until the Magic Negro's term expires. Just do what needs to be done however painful to rid the country of the incompetent Jerk-Of-The-Century.
Obamacare will be this president's undoing. Ironically, he still thinks it's his legacy which, of course, it is. But not the legacy he has in mind.

Also, his pouting and bullying and refusing to sit down and even talk with Republicans to work out a compromise hasn't gone over well with a lot of people.

But Obamacare will be his undoing. I really believe that. We're just going to have to prepare ourselves for the worst first.

Only a person who has severe psychological damage could possible think this way. Pharmaceutical and insurance costs have been soaring for many years now and all the while not a single thing has been done to help that situation. Now we have a president who is not afraid to address the real problems facing our nation and just as they did with socisl security and medicare the Republicans are pretending it's the end of time. Without either of those we would really be dealing with the worst, so deal with it you clueless pretenders of the poor, working man, Veterans and whine away as Obama crams it up your azz. Your blind misery is rather enjoyable.

Carol is correct. Obama and his party are the party of "no" compromise, even though the majority of America does not want Obamacare.

You're confusing Osama with Obama and Obamacare which is destined to see this nation fail. Nevermind the government failing. It's already been there, done that.
It's the people I'm worried about. Especially people like you. The economy is anything but saved. Obama has done more spending than any other president. Jobs being created are part-time because of Obamacare and Obama has raised taxes at every opportunity. Obamacare, by the way, is a tax law. Which brings me back to my original point.
You're lying again as usual Carol.
Government spending under President Obama has grown at a slower rate than it did under any president since Dwight D. Eisenhower was in office six decades ago, according to an analysis from Bloomberg. That may not jibe with the conservative complaints that Obama has overseen a massive growth in government spending, but itís true:
Federal outlays over the past three years grew at their slowest pace since 1953-56, when Dwight D. Eisenhower was president. Expenditures as a share of the economy sank last year to 22.8 percent, their lowest level since 2008, according to Congressional Budget Office data. Thatís down from 24.1 percent in 2011 and a 64-year high of 25.2 percent in 2009, when Obama pushed through an $831 billion stimulus package.[...]
Spending grew just 0.6 percent from 2009 to 2012, according to data compiled by Bloomberg from government reports.
The President doesn't spend a dime that isn't authorized by Congress you clueless twit! Raising taxes is also a function of Congress you stupid liar. The only ones who got a tax raise was those making over $400,000 a year and that was passed by the Republican House.
It's amazing to me that someone who claims she was some kind of hot shot teacher is so ignorant about how government operates.
You're an idiot Carol!

Morning idiot, speaking of the psychologically damaged. Only the most clueless would not see that Obama has bent over backwards to please and appease a group of greedy people that are supposed to do what's best for fellow Americans, but their admitted only project was to undermine and destroy Obama....While the by-product of that brings us programmed sheep like you carol and the rest of the lock steppers on here.

Good lord you are truly ignorant of what is going on in the world. Gallup poll and a few other polls have exposed the republicans at the lowest polls for approval and disapproval in the history of the USA to be held by one party. Of those polled 70% hold republicans responsible for the dysfunctions of our government congress. Do try to keep upÖ. Your right wing propaganda is no longer working.
As I stated before, as communication increases so does the knowledge of those communicating grows. Well for some. We will always have our 10% of DUH ! Like you emulate.
Personally I hope Obama vetoes the senate proposal for raising the debt ceiling and put a stop to these juvenile republican tactics that is destroying our nations credit as a financial leader.
If we canít rid ourselves of this ignorance within our politics then the Chineseís are correct. Its time we pass on the role of leadership to another. LOL that would instantly make your white class a minority, on the world stage. Technology, finical, trade, free markets, etc., etc., will now be to the discretion of the world new leaders. Gee who would of thought that addiction to Tea would be the demise of our democracy. Credit goes down> Interest Rates go Up> The 1% collects the profits. Now thatís what I call Repubacare.
See you at the polls 2014...Ta, Ta, Oh by the way, democrats and Obamaís polls are rising as fast as the annual deficit is declining. Obama went ahead and set up his own budget in lieu of the republicans inability to get off their broken record of Nay, Nay, Nay leadership. Presently the Annual deficit has been cut in half since 2008 and is going down. At this rate Obama will produce a surplus to the annual budget as did Clinton.

I'm counting on Speaker Boehner and the House Republicans doing the right thing, voting no on the Senate deal and calling Obama and Reid's bluff!!!

Then we'll see Obama and Reid pissing themselves as Thursday gets closer!

People need to stop focusing on the Social Security retirement program and refocus on SSI. That is the program that needs closer scrutiny. After all, SSI isn't self-funded. It is paid for by U.S. Treasury general funds. And it is running amok.
Since 1990, the number of disabled-worker beneficiaries has increased 84%. Repeat 84%!!! And, asa a result, the number of disabled Medicare beneficiaries has increased nearly 70 percent since 1990. This just isn't acceptable. We need to reevaluate how we pay SSI to premature children and take a look at why disability retirements are being handed out like candy.
That's where the red ink is....not in the self-funded Social Security program.
The Social Security Trust Fund is an easy fix....raise the retirement age by one year. Not so much with SSI. It's a monster that is out of control.
How old are YOU?

Those of us who have worked above the tables, in the lower economic realms since our middle teens-say..DON'T touch the retirement age, 40 PLUS years of paying IN taxes, to have a society that NOW allows for hordes of able entitlementalcase SLACKERTICS to drain them for sitting on their deadbeat, palms outstretched azzez is already TOO MUCH.

The "welfare" FWEE riding baby mama and similar programs are the ones that are OUT of control!!

(15 kids hollering "someone has to pay"??? The "givverment" SHOULD'VE CAPPED that kind of crap along time ago! ONE alotted amount per month, no matter how many them add to they litters of nothing but CONsumer.
