Start over with what? Republicans aren't going to offer anything that might be successful as long as Obama is president. Republicans have no intention of helping Americans, they have one goal, embarrass the Black guy.
Republicans are the party of hate, no and obstruction.

Easing off from being seen as the "policeman of the world" might have been a good thing temporarily.
But the problem with Syria is the world now sees us as wimps. This president tried to back off from his "red line" threat by pointing to Congress, the UN and the world as the ones who said it.
Allowing Putin to come to the rescue, one bad guy in cahoots with the other bad guy, to resolve the other bad guy's WMD threat blurs the lines of who is the leader on the world stage.
It's not a good idea for the United States to back down and allow Communist countries to take the lead on the world stage.
It brings into question leadership or cowardice on the part of this president in the eyes of the world.
This president has not once condemned the atrocities committed on Christians around the world which has become an epidemic.
He is too focused on himself, restoring his signature legislation and his legacy.
How can this possibly be seen as leadership? Remaining silent is much too close to condoning it.
Ignoring evil won't protect us from it. When was the last time this president said anything about the unrest in the Middle East and Africa? It's seems like "out of sight, out of mind" with this president. After the Syrian debacle, it's almost like the enemy doesn't even exist anymore.
Where is this president in the midst of all the unrest and instability playing out on the world stage? He's campaigning for Obamacare in Massachusetts.
Putin ranked no 1 world leader. Obama third. The destruction of America continues.

(MoneyWatch) It is late October, so Adrianne Flowers is out of money to buy food for her family. That is no surprise. Feeding five kids is expensive, and the roughly $600 in food stamps she gets from the federal government never lasts the whole month. "I'm barely making it," said the 31-year-old Washington, D.C., native and single mother.
Starting Friday, the money is likely to run out even quicker.
That is when Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, benefits are set to fall for more than 47 million lower-income people -- 1 in 7 Americans -- most of whom live in households with children, seniors or people with disabilities. Barring congressional intervention, the maximum payment for a family of four will shrink from $668 a month to $632, or $432 over the course of a year.
That amounts to 21 meals per month, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The cuts will leave participants in the program, better known as food stamps, with an average of $1.40 to spend on each meal. The amount people get could sink even more if Congress makes deeper cuts later this year when House and Senate lawmakers try to hammer out a farm bill.
The Nov. 1 benefit cuts "will be close to catastrophic for many people," said Ross Fraser, a spokesman for Feeding America, the nation's largest domestic hunger-relief charity, which estimates that this week's SNAP reduction will result in a loss of nearly 2 billion meals for poor families next year.
This being said I was behind a lady at Food Lion this morning. She was buying stuff on EBT. She was having trouble. The lady stated quite proudly that she was a new grandma, as rightly so. She brought out the card and said she was new to this. She swiped the card and the cashier said it was denied. She said "Oh I got one from the dad let me try it". One baby two cards. She didn't see anything wrong with that! That is the problem. Tremendous amount of fraud.
So as an OBAMA supporter she should be happy she is pro life when her legs were open well maybe she needs to be pro choice now that she can't afford to feed her kids wow that was hurtful but thats what PRO CHOICE is

gross stupidity to get involved at all...
Apparently??? Another wild azz guess from Mr Know It all?

George initiated the HOA program, the Sanford Police Department NW liaison made the presentation at a HOA meeting and furnished the pamphlets, signs and so on. She testified during the trial__clearly smitten by George she wanted him to apply for the Citizens on Patrol program. Another HOA member testified that it was assumed that George would be in charge. George also took an active roll on the parking committee.

How about this, moron.
ObamaKare gives corporations a less expensive option to providing health insurance to their employees. It will cost the corporations less to dump their employees onto the ObamaKare system.
The only corporations that will continue to pay more to provide health insurance to their employees are the corporations that are actually interested in the wellbeing of their employees.
Why else would a corporation pay more to provide health care than it would cost them to dump all of their employees onto ObamaKare?
....well?????
"Caring" is overrated...

The only corporations that will continue to pay more to provide health insurance to their employees are the corporations that need to attract high quality employees.

...but all private insurance will soon disappear and those employees will be forced to line up with the welfare bums for ObamaKKKare...

LoisLane the warmonger. Did you get a flu shot at Walgreens?

The President can't be the babysitter for all the disgruntled masses in the Middle East and elsewhere. I realize that you just woke up from a coma when President Obama was elected; however, unrest in the Middle East has gone on forever and likely will go on forever. Did you know that Israel released 25 or so Palestinian prisoners the other day?
Yes, and, in the next breath they announced they were building more settlements!!
The world does not see the United States as wimps; the world is greatful that we didn't start bombing Syria; and don't kid yourself about Putin; who you on the right have revered. He was afraid of the hammer as well. You're an un American traitor.
Just because the President isn't on Fox every minute telling everyone everything doesn't mean that he is not aware of everything. He's cool, and calm and collected, you can't ruffle him and that's what drives you teapartyer nuts kerrazzy. I love it.

"At that time, HHS estimated that 34 to 64 percent of large employer (100 or more workers) plans would lose grandfathered status by 2013, and that 49 to 80 percent of small employer (under 100 workers) plans would lose grandfathered status by 2013."

It's one of the few places in the road O'Reilly and I part company. He continues to give this president a pass and refuses to say he lied to us on purpose. He can't seem to grasp that this president "who has accomplished so much" would do something so stupid and jeopardize impeachment if proven to be true.

O'Reilly just doesn't get this president doesn't care and that imposing his vision on the rest of us is the only reason for his existence and that we're just too stupid to figure it out.

O'Reilly admonishes his viewers who call Obama a socialist in the email segment that they're going too far.

I say they're not going far enough.

Oh and these wild azz guess costs of yours do not reflect any subsidy__do they? It's my guess that "most" early 60's couples who earn $80,000 plus already have suitable health insurance through their employer or by way of a private plan.
You continue to ignore that all things equal__private plans were much costlier than group plans. The ACA works towards correcting that disparity.
the facts are available on the Covered California website, you fkn drunk...

those in their early 60s who are retired and collecting pensions and SS can easily have an income in excess of $100K, but have no insurance coverage because of ObamaKKKare...

He killed Bin Laden, he delivered healthcare, he got the Syrians to dismantle their chemical weapons....the list goes on. He's phenomenal.
