It has to be the Constitution. Even the parts that protect those things they don't agree with. If that isn't the entire platform, they don't have a chance.
Democrats are completely defenseless against any constitutional argument.

In fact, Homer, even democrats were waiting for this debacle to happen.
So don't blame Republicans. They were innocent bystanders who tried to save us and got blamed for doing so.
It's your fellow Democrats who want to do what Republicans tried to do. Some are even saying it's time for both sides to come together to fix the problem they, themselves, created.
Only now do they want Republicans to bail them out.
So blaming them has become passé.
Obama was the only person in the entire administration that didn't know this was going to happen... which has become the typical case.

'You Also Can't Keep Your Doctor

What happened to the president's promise, "You can keep your health plan"? Or to the promise that "You can keep your doctor"? Thanks to the law, I have been forced to give up a world-class health plan. The exchange would force me to give up a world-class physician.
For a cancer patient, medical coverage is a matter of life & death. Take away people's ability to control their medical-coverage choices and they may die. I guess that's a highly effective way to control medical costs. Perhaps that's the point.
Ms. Sundby lives in California.
this argument falls on deaf ears on the left, which thinks all doctors are the same...

in the future, most patients will rarely see a doctor, just some community college clown called a "physician assistant" or " nurse practitioner", an unqualified slug not worth the time of day...

The Teabag Party, of which you claim to be a member, is filled with religious conservatives like Carol.

These nitwits make the Teabag Party even more unappealing to Americans.

Tomorrow you will see the Teabag darling Cuccinelli get beaten.

You will also see another Teabag darling get destroyed.

""E.W. Jackson Has Been an Unmitigated Disaster for the Virginia GOP""

"Right now, all the attention in the Virginia gubernatorial race is focused on Ken Cuccinelli’s losing campaign and Mark Obenshain’s competitive race for attorney general. The other statewide race, between state Sen. Ralph Northam and Bishop E.W. Jackson for lieutenant governor, has gone off the radar, and for good reason. There’s no question that the far-right candidate will lose in a landslide. Jackson’s not a candidate as much as he is a sideshow, an example of the base-driven politics that has crippled Virginia’s Republican Party in the general election."


Your side loves black conservatives. Problem is, they're all the same. Like Allen West and the black Doctor who fell off the radar after makiing a complete fool of himself, these black wanna-be's stock in trade is making outrageous comments that appeal to racist whites, as you folks love watching black people look and talk stupidly.

For proof, look to Michael Steele and Herman 'the pimp' Cain.

To Obama, "middle class" means people living off the government with what it decides to give to them that is taken from everyone else.
To Americans, "middle class" means people working for a living.

It might have helped if 1 or 2 Republicans had been on board passing health care legislation affecting us all.
Enough Already on . Don’t You Remember Medicare Part D?

Republicans certainly deserved a few weeks of ‘toldja so!’ about the site’s awful rollout. But why can’t they start helping their constituents figure it out now, as Democrats did with Bush’s Medicare Part D?

I refer, of course, to the Medicare Part D implementation in late 2005 and early 2006. That was the big prescription drug bill passed in 2003. You remember—it’s the one where the Republicans didn’t have the votes in the House, even though they controlled the House, and Speaker Tom DeLay held the floor open for 15 minutes after the bell rang as his lieutenants went around and badgered and threatened some GOP members until they changed their vote from nay to aye. My, how at home DeLay would have been with the Tea Partiers.

Anyhow. Most Democrats voted against the bill. In the House just 16 of 203 Democratic members voted yes. In the Senate, however, 11 of 48 Democrats voted for the new Bush entitlement. First, let’s just stop right there. Could you imagine 16 and 11 Republicans ever voting for an Obama legislative priority, something that was clearly Obama’s “baby” in the same way that the Part D bill was Bush’s? There’d be no end to the slobbering over Republicans for being so reasonable. As I recall, the Democrats were attacked at the time for not supporting the bill enough.

So they didn’t. And then, two years later, the rollout came. It was a mess. In mid-October 2005, the Bush administration announced a delay. Reason? It was Yom Kippur, and evidently no one wanted to offend elderly Jews who wouldn’t be using their computers. Right. So it was delayed. But a month later, as Jon Perr noted recently at Crooks & Liars, the planned comparison-shopping website still wasn’t up and running. Even after it finally was, it was confusing and a mess. Some sample headlines:“Web-based Comparison of Prescription Plans Delayed,” The Washington Post; “Glitches Mar Launch of Medicare Drug Plan,” The Wall Street Journal; “President Tells Insurers to Aid Ailing Medicare Drug Plan,” The New York Times.

Needless to say, some of the same people now trying to put the hex on Obamacare spent 2006 pooh-poohing—you guessed it—“glitches,” as Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) put it back then. I’m sure they’d say they’re different things, and it’s true the Affordable Care Act is a bigger undertaking. But they’re precisely similar in spirit—big, new government programs that depended largely on citizen interaction via personal computer. And the ACA fixes what was the biggest problem created by Part D, the so-called doughnut hole in prescription drug coverage. So the Obama bill corrects what was conspicuously awful about the Bush bill. Yes, they are different!

But the biggest difference is not how Republicans behaved back then but how Democrats did. Most Democrats voted against the law. But they did not then sue the Bush administration and try to take the thing to the Supreme Court and get it invalidated. And then, when the start-up was a cock-up, Democrats didn’t go around saying it was proof the law had to go. They tried to fix it. Hillary Clinton, then a senator, said:“I voted against it, but once it passed I certainly determined that I would try to do everything I could to make sure that New Yorkers understood it, could access it, and make the best of it.”

but when you're dealing with people who have no morals or ethics you end up with a group of them getting together on inauguration day planning a coup of the sitting government. and heaven forbid that the new guy tries to pass off a conservative idea as his own.

Tell us about the most recent event when jews killed every man, woman and child in a village.
These are just about every day events for muslims, moron.
Now, why would Obama want to be part of the most murderous group of people in the world today? Would it be because he's just another mass murderer waiting for the opportunity to slaughter a defenseless population?
Obama would have to murder 60 million people to equal Mao.
Obama would have to murder 20 to 30 million people to equal Stalin.
Obama would have to murder over 12 percent of the population of the United States to equal Ho Chi Minh.
Obama would have to murder over 10 million people to equal Hitler.
Obama would have to murder 3000 people in one day to equal Al Qaeda.
Is this within reach fof those controlling Obama?
Well, I can tell you about the guy who killed children in defense of Christianity son!

"Turn out the lights, the Tea Party is over"

2010 was the high water mark. Since then we've seen Teabags popularity decline below measurable levels.

Noew they've lost elections in NJ, and are on the cusp of being humiliated in VA.

The darling of the Teabags, Michelle Bachmann, is retiring from politics.

But at least she's not quitting like the stinking dead fish from Alaska.

The parallel universe here on Topix is filled with true Teabag believers.

Losers all. Which is why y'all stay on here, to commisserate with others as insipidly ignorant as you are.
