Brace yourself.
A 2011 Gallup poll said 92% of Americans professed a belief in God.
Registered Republicans don't make up 92% of the population.
That means a lot of them are on your side of the fence.
I know that was a hard pill to swallow, so are you okay?
Why is that a hard pill to swallow, Homer part of that 92%. What is your point?

Impossible...the basic premise that one can insure more people with better coverage for less money was fundamentally flawed.

First of all, Obama has said it was always his intention that no one should lose a plan he wanted to keep and I believe him.
Obama on those who have received cancellation notices:
"It means a lot to them. And it’s scary to them. And I AM SORRY that they, you know, are finding themselves in this situation, based on assurances they got from me."
“But obviously, we didn’t do a good enough job in terms of how we crafted the law. And, you know, that’s something that I regret. That’s something that we’re going to do everything we can to get fixed.”
I would call that is all he needs to say. That is certainly more than Bush ever offered in the way of an apology for killing 45,000 Americans.
Your being a naiveté and a Kool-Aid drinker will not matter to the millions in the middle class that have their wallets hit hard. There is nothing worse in the way of losing a vote than to hit someone in the pocketbook, and deceive them.

Your apathy of "too bad" will not help them with choosing to either insure or feed their children.

whilst you nutjobs lose elections running on extreme right wing positions.
so let's talk about winning by losing. seems someone has lost their filter that keeps them from lying about issues to the point of where losing-by-lying has become an integral part of tea party politics.
and since there's no way you folks can stop lying.....Dem in the WH for the next 30 years. it's happened before. it's happening now. so it's no wonder you nutjobs are full freak lately.
Venezuelans, as one example, realized too late they had been duped by Chavez who used the same "bleeding heart" rhetoric as Obama to gain control over the people. Despite numerous protests and attempts to overthrow him, they still remained in the minority.

Some people just want to like the popular guy no matter how much of a jerk he is. Doesn't mean they even have a clue.

Mormon Church Taking Over in Florida
By Kevin Spear, Orlando Sentinel
6:08 p.m. EST, November 7, 2013
The Mormon church stands to own nearly 2 percent of Florida by completing a deal to buy most of the real estate of the St. Joe Co. for more than a half-billion dollars.
The megapurchase was announced jointly Thursday by a corporate representative of church, which owns the nearly 295,000-acre Deseret Ranches in Central Florida, and by the real-estate and timber business, which has built several communities along the Panhandle coast.
According to the announcement, a church entity, AgReserves Inc., will buy 382,834 acres – the majority of St. Joe's timberlands – in Bay, Calhoun, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Jefferson, Leon, Liberty and Wakulla counties for $565 million.
Completion of the deal will leave the Utah-based church with 678,000 acres, an area larger than any other private holding in Florida, according to widely shared but unconfirmed rankings of top landowners.
AgReserves Inc., a taxpaying company of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, will maintain timber and agricultural uses of the Panhandle acreage, according to the announcement.
Just goes to show what I have always said....organized religions are nothing more than big business.

Blame Bush? Bush hasn't been president for over 5 years so do you want to talk current issues? Stop performing the art of deflection.

I bought a catastrophic health policy for $170/mo when I left MSNBC. Obamacare cancelled the policy. New rate $600/mo. Thanks Mr. President

There you go again...you still think there are more "religious nuts" on our side of the fence who'd agree with such an outlandish comment made by Akin even when he immediately retracted it and clarified it than the overwhelming number of rational people who distanced themselves from it and condemned him for saying it.
And you can't force anyone to do anything. Calls for him to step down were heard loud and clear but you must have been in the shower.
ever see "The Godfather"???

Go back on this thread to the election days. All the kool aid drinking Obama supporters were adamant that Obamacare was exactly what Obama promised. Fools. They won't be happy until the transition to nanny state is complete. Personal responsibility and personal accomplishment will have no practical value.
right on target...particularly the last sentence...
