Yep.
People don't care. They just wanted a black president. Period.
You're right, they have no one to blame but themselves when taxes skyrocket and the military becomes downsized, leaving us vulnerable to attacks.
They are actually happy that they have put this country in danger.
Yup!

Speaking of Useful Idiots - ¨ObamaCare is not a health care plan, it is a blueprint to allow the government to control the day-to-day lives of all Americans, and under the guise of budgetary expediency, the bureaucrats in Washington can and eventually will declare any behavior they choose unacceptable.¨

Useful idiot -¨propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of¨- describes every Obama shill on this thread.

Besides, what do you expect from people who would entrust the future and well being of our (once?) great nation to a community organizer?

<quoted text>Both Catagories? the United States is a country where half the population is occupied by indigents, and you think that is fine???
First of all, that is not what the article stated.

The number of people listed as receiving some sort of government means tested benefit do not represent half the population.

Second, that number is derived by The Census Bureau counted as recipients of means-tested government programs “anyone residing in a household in which one or more people received benefits from the program.”

So, it counted children, and senior citizens if they resided in a household where at least one person received at least one means tested benefit.

Some people living in that household could be working full time & still qualify for a benefit like food stamps or maybe heat assistance.

The problem with you right whiners is that you are all so uninformed that you run in circles having a fit about something that you do not have the education to understand.

You right whiners keep wanting to elect the same people that fomented the economic disaster under Bush that sent all these people to the unemployment lines & into qualifying for government assistance.

We need to get more people working & working better paying jobs. Perhaps you should talk to your Republican Congressmen & tell them to grow the f*ck up & do something to help fix the mess they made & help this country.

From Politico:

For the first time, a majority of Americans think Barack Obama is not respected among world leaders, according to a new poll that found opinion has plunged "dramatically" in the past year.

Fifty-three percent now say Obama is not respected on the international stage, up from 43 percent a year ago - and the number who say they believe the president is respected has dropped to 41 percent from 51 percent over the same time, the poll found.

My question is, what took the ¨majority of Americans¨ so long?
Yeah

My leftist comrades, I want to extend my deepest sympathy to you all for another failure within your liberal media. I am referring to the British socialist known as piers morgan. Having propped up another talentless failure, of which tv ratings overwhelmingly reaffirmed, is what the left celebrates and honors - failures and lies! Failures and lies are the pillars of the left and the Democratic party. I know this loss will be difficult for you all. Maybe its time for CNN to bring back al gore to talk about global warming while we are on the brink of the 4th polar vortex this winter!
ROTFLMAO. Just like Keith Ogarman!!!

Apparently, Obama told Democrats that midterm elections and state-level races aren't "sexy enough" during a meeting with Democratic governors and party donors.

“We know how to win national elections,” Obama said.“But all too often it’s during these midterms where we end up getting ourselves into trouble because, I guess we don’t think it’s sexy enough.”

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2014/02/...

It's his disconnect showing again - and the first time elections are supposed to be sexy.

Hope Democrats don't go too far and embarrass themselves. If it meant getting more votes...nothing would surprise me.
