Were you alive when Bush was president? Is your life worse now than it was after 8 years of that conservative president? If so, how so?
How is your life better now fascist?

Unemployment is still almost 8% after 5 years of Obama & Democrats and if you take an honest look at polls (which you will not do) people feel we are worse off now.

Now run along little brown shirt fascist.

Good night, punk name stealer.

Can you imagine the outrage from the left if the right was pulling the same crap the left did throughout Bush's two terms?
Think the lib-ocrites would have something to say about a book entitled "The Assassination of Barack Hussein Obama: A Love Story?
How about a movie called "Death of a President?" - a film that covers the years after the assassination of President Barack Hussein Obama in Chicago, an investigative documentary examines that as-yet-unsolved crime?
No? Well they were fine when written and filmed about George W. Bush.
Along with the actual book and movie here were death threats made toward Bush constantly (free speech was fine and quite unoffensive in these instances). The photos I've included prove it.

Save that for Dave as he thinks Obama is being picked on v Bush's treatment.

The Progressive hate troop acting as dividers of Americans came into being during this era. Full of hate, hot for blood baths and chronically childish.

WASHINGTON (Reuters)- President Barack Obama's healthcare law could have a "meltdown" and make it difficult for his Democratic Party to keep control of the U.S. Senate next year if ongoing problems with the program are not resolved, a Democratic senator said on Sunday.

Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia, who has urged delaying a penalty for people who do not enroll for health insurance in 2014 under the law, told CNN that a transitional year was needed for the complex healthcare program, commonly known as Obamacare, to work.

"If it's so much more expensive than what we anticipated and if the coverage is not as good as what we had, you've got a complete meltdown at that time," Manchin told CNN's "State of the Union" program.

"It falls of its own weight, if basically the cost becomes more than we can absorb, absolutely."

Complete meltdown. Couldn't be more aptly put than the way the Democratic Senator put it.

Yeah so what Carol? OJ Simpson was a Hall of Famer too. So what's your point? He's a former jock and second rate actor. That makes his opinion relevant how?
Jim Brown campaigned for Obama. And now says he's in over his head. OJ Simpson didn't. That's the difference.

I said what negative impact has Obama's presidency had on YOU.
Taxes are only higher for the top 1%.(not you)
You don't have a "real job" and aren't looking for one.
You're lying about receiving a lower quality of medical care.

I don't even know anyone receiving welfare unless you consider Social Security or Medicare. Everyone I know has a job or is retired except a couple wealthy Republicans that are living off inheritances. I've never seen or heard of a free phone. I have no idea what you right wing morons are whining about that Obama has done to make your lives miserable. Not one of you has given a specific personal example.
And, why would I or anyone want to go to Montana?
So, you're denying the plight of countless people who have lost their health insurance just because you claim not to 'know anyone personally' who has? Your post is total bullshit.

You, sir (or madame), are a liar.

The True Story of
Rudolph
A man named Bob May, depressed and brokenhearted, stared out his drafty apartment window into the chilling December night.
His 4-year-old daughter Barbara sat on his lap quietly sobbing. Bob's wife, Evelyn, was dying of cancer.
Little Barbara couldn't understand why her mommy could never come home. Barbara looked up into her dad's eyes and asked,
"Why isn't Mommy just like everybody else's Mommy?"
Bob's jaw tightened and his eyes welled with tears. Her question brought waves of grief, but also of anger. It had been the story of Bob's life. Life always had to be different for Bob.
Small when he was a kid, Bob was often bullied by other boys. He was too little at the time to compete in sports. He was often called names he'd rather not remember.
From childhood, Bob was different and never seemed to fit in. Bob did complete college, married his loving wife and was grateful to get his job as a copywriter at Montgomery Ward during the Great Depression. Then he was blessed with his little girl. But it was all short-lived. Evelyn's bout with cancer stripped them of all their savings and now Bob and his daughter were forced to live in a two-room apartment in the Chicago slums. Evelyn died just days before Christmas in 1938.
Bob struggled to give hope to his child, for whom he couldn't even afford to buy a Christmas gift.
But if he couldn't buy a gift, he was determined to make one - a storybook! Bob had created an animal character in his own mind and told the animal's story to little Barbara to give her comfort and hope. Again and again Bob told the story, embellishing it more with each telling.
Who was the character? What was the story all about? The story Bob May created was his own autobiography in fable form. The character he created was a misfit outcast like he was. The name of the character? A little reindeer named Rudolph, with a big shiny nose. Bob finished the book just in time to give it to his little girl on Christmas Day. But the story doesn't end there.
The general manager of Montgomery Ward caught wind of the little storybook and offered Bob May a nominal fee to purchase the rights to print the book. Wards went on to print,“Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer”and distribute it to children visiting Santa Claus in their stores.
By 1946 Wards had printed and distributed more than six million copies of Rudolph. That same year, a major publisher wanted to purchase the rights from Wards to print an updated version of the book.
In an unprecedented gesture of kindness, the CEO of Wards returned all rights back to Bob May. The book became a best seller. Many toy and marketing deals followed and Bob May, now remarried with a growing family, became wealthy from the story he created to comfort his grieving daughter. But the story doesn't end there either.
Bob's brother-in-law, Johnny Marks, made a song adaptation to Rudolph. Though the song was turned down by such popular vocalists as Bing Crosby and Dinah Shore , it was recorded by the singing cowboy, Gene Autry.
"Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer" was released in 1949 and became a phenomenal success, selling more records than any other Christmas song, with the exception of "White Christmas."
The gift of love that Bob May created for his daughter so long ago kept on returning back to bless him again and again. And Bob May learned the lesson, just like his dear friend Rudolph, that being different isn't so bad. In fact, being different can be a blessing.
MERRY CHRISTMAS
Heartwarming Christmas story. With a good moral. We need to hear more of these kinds of stories.

What would a day in old Galt's life be without his numerous lies? As far as medical care, brain surgery would be considered in and out for that flake. Also would be pointless.

Not even in the same hemisphere.

From PolitiFact:

The claim:

"The incidents of threats against (President Barack Obama) are greater than for any other president in modern times." - Julian Bond, 3/6/2013

The findings:

No evidence to support claim about threats against Obama

There’s no concrete evidence that Bond and others have produced to back up their claim.

We rate Bond’s claim False.

More twisted logic from the "RIGHT"....What about the plight of Americas 30---40 million who don't have insurance...Only when it's in the rights political favor do they pretend to have a heart. How about the 1.3 million who are losing their benefits hypocrite?

All presidents are in over their head Carol. But he has been a far better president than was Bush. Cheney and Bush were the two dumbest and created most of the problems that we face today, Obama has attempted to straighten out most of them without any help from the Republicans only the most clueless would not be aware of that"FACT". But then I guess I answered my own question seeing as how baggers are clueless and more dangerous to this nation than Al Qaeda.
