Yes, Carville said that Obama has had some problems such as the roll out of the ACA but he also said this on Obama's accmplishments:
"The deficit is dropping as a percentage of GDP faster than any time since World War II. He saved the auto industry. Healthcare costs are flattening better than any time in the last 20 years. Teenage pregnancy is at an all-time low,"
This is an example of someone trying to force conclusions based on a preconceived bias in your never to be humble opinion.

Former president Bush did the civilized world a favor, he got rid of a murderer, sadamn your kind of person. Your hero. the boy president, nobama, would have funneled American tax payer dollars to him, one who murdered 1000's of his citizens, many women and children.

And who was the US president when Saddam massacred the Kurd dumbass? It was Ronald Reagan whose administration did in fact fund him. Bush didn't do anybody any favors and certainly not the Iraqi people. He turned a secular government into one controlled by Islamists with ties to Iran. How many sectarian dislocations were there before we invaded? None. How many suicide bombings? None.
What's happened to the Christians in Iraq since Saddam's fall? They've been driven out.

Two Women were chatting in office..

Woman 1:"I had a fine evening, how was yours..??

Woman 2:"It was a disaster.. My husband came home, ate his dinner in 3 minutes and fell a sleep.. How was yours..??

Woman 1:"Oh it was amazing! My husband came home and took me out for a romantic dinner.. After dinner we walked for an hour.. When we came home he lit the candles around the house..It was like a fairy tale!

At the same time, their husbands are talking at work..

Husband 1:"How was your evening..??

Husband 2:"Great.. I came home, dinner was on the table, I ate and fell asleep.
What about you ??

Husband 1:"It was horrible. I came home, there's no dinner, they cut the electricity because I forgot to pay the bill; so I took her out for dinner which was so expensive that i didn't had money left for a cab. We walked home which took an hour and when we got home i remembered there was no electricity so I had to light candles all over the house!!

The Republican establishment's much-anticipated pushback against the tea party wing is underway. House Speaker John Boehner made that clear Thursday, when he renewed his denunciation of groups that try to defeat GOP incumbents they consider too willing to compromise with Democrats.

Some Republican loyalists wonder what took so long. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently took steps to help mainstream Republicans in party primaries, but Boehner's high-profile outburst will move the effort to the GOP's front burners.

Cheering him on are mainstream Republicans who angrily watched for three years as hard-right groups exercised remarkable clout in the party, the Congress and elections. Tea party-backed nominees helped the GOP win control of the House in 2010, but they also lost several Senate races seen as winnable, keeping the Senate in Democratic hands.

This past summer, uncompromising House Republicans forced a partial government shutdown that damaged the party's image, just as Boehner warned it would.

Many Republicans also feel conservative activists pushed presidential nominee Mitt Romney so far to the right on immigration and other issues that it eased President Barack Obama's path to re-election last year.

"The establishment has no choice at this point," said former Rep. Tom Davis, a Virginia Republican who has criticized the tea party's growing influence. "So they're taking them on."

WICHITA, Kan.(AP)— An avionics technician from Kansas was arrested Friday as he planned to drive a vehicle full of explosives into a terminal at Wichita's Mid-Continent Regional Airport, authorities said.

Terry Lee Loewen, 58, was charged with one count each of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction, attempting to damage property and attempting to provide support to terrorist group al-Qaida. Authorities said he was trying to support "al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula."

He planned to die in the explosion, a fate that he said was inevitable after convincing himself to become a martyr in a jihad against America, according to court documents.

He was arrested about 5:40 a.m. as tried to enter the airport tarmac and deliver a vehicle loaded with what he believed to be high explosives, Grissom said.

It will take years for Republicans to undo the damage teabagger lunacy has done to their image. They've let these idiots in the door with the idea that they could manipulate their hate and fear. The problem is that people who live in a world of hate and fear don't respond to logic.

Boehner is simply responding to pressure from big business donors that are demanding that he rein in the nut case teabaggers that are willing to throw the country back into a recession. He still has an empty sack.

How Outside Conservative Groups Pushed John Boehner Over The Edge

After several right-wing outside groups slammed the bipartisan budget deal negotiated by House Budget Chair Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Budget Chair Patty Murray (D-WA)— in some cases before the deal was even announced — Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH) hit his breaking point.“When you criticize something and you have no idea what you’re criticizing, you’ve lost your credibility,” he told reporters Thursday, noting that it “comes to a point where some people step over a line.” But Boehner’s frustration has no doubt been building up over this three years as Speaker, as groups like Heritage Action, FreedomWorks, and the Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) have stymied his attempts to pass even conservative-friendly legislation.

In 2011, Boehner and President Obama were on the verge of reaching a “grand bargain” on taxes, spending, and deficit reduction. The talks fell through, in part because freshmen Republicans and the conservative groups that backed them were unwilling to accept new revenue.

....Though Paul Ryan has enjoyed a close relationship with Tea Party groups like FreedomWorks in the past, these groups slammed the Ryan-Murray compromise as a “surender.” and promised to hold it against anyone who votes for his bill. Heritage Action condemned the bill as “a step backwards.” The 2012 Vice Presidential nominee dismissed the attacks from the right as a “strange new normal.”

That awkward moment when a Progressive realizes calling conservatives teabaggers means they are the teabagged.
