<quoted text>You, like Obama, confuse winning an election with a royal coronation and being crowned the king.

The majority of "voters" and "consumers" were against this law then and now.

It was passed on a strictly partisan vote with not even one Republican on board. But I'm sure if the shoe was on the other foot, you'd be defending it tooth and nail like you are now.

Sometimes it feels like I'm trying to reason with a 5-year-old, no offense.
Instead of explaining to you that you are not the majority for the hundredth time I will instead thank you for proving how dumb you are. Again

Since he was a known smoker well into his first term - and we just have to take his word for it that he just quit recently - I'd say that was "all for smoking".

Just like he was all for being against gay marriage - until right before an election.

This president functions on politics and lacks any convictions. Not a good combination.

U.S. Air Force Commanders Respond to Budget Cuts By Removing Thousands of Airmen From the Ranks & Eliminating 500 Warplanes in 25 States, DC, & Overseas, Including Terminating the A-10 Warthog!
TODAY'S NEWS
Zoom Out Zoom In
By Joe Calandra Jr. 111:33 am March 12, 2014
American ground forces are about to lose the A-10 Warthog, one of the most popular close-in support attack aircraft in U.S. history, thanks to Congressional budget cuts and increasing financial pressure from the Obama Administration.

According to Stars and Stripes, the U.S. Air Force now has a proposed base budget of $109.3 billion to fund all of its operations in fiscal year 2015, which means manpower cuts and airframe elimination.

In addition to removing the warthog from the fleet, the U-2 recon aircraft force will also head to the scrap yard. The F-15 and MQ 1-S will also take heavy hits.

Total Air Force military personnel will drop from 503,000 airmen to 483,000.

Air Force Chief of Staff, Gen. Mark A. Welsh III, says the cuts are necessary to keep the branch functioning with “expected funding levels” or it will be unable to achieve acceptable combat readiness.

The General also explains Air Force leaders decided to make these cuts in order to leave $4.3 billion in the budget to work toward acquiring more advanced F-35 joint strike fighters.

The cuts were also deemed appropriate in order to make another $359 million hole in the budget to put toward research, development, and testing of a brand new long-range bomber.

You're a hypocrite because you make personal judgments that are selective.

And assume too much based on personal and political bias.

For Flacktard, Dumbass Eed & all you other feeble minded right whiners.

Clinton had balanced budgets.

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2010/02/...

So why do you morons have such a tizzy fit? Is it because you are embarrassed that your Party blew the very thing you morons rant about here every day????

"OMG OMG the spending Omg OMG the deficits" OMG OMG OMG"

Ad we had it. Then George W Bush got elected ( sort of) because he ran on giving it back" and you dumbasses saw you might get money & rushed out & voted for him.

Now you blame Obama.

You people are truly dumber than sh*t.

Carol logic.
She is the majority cause she says so.
The fact that the republican candidate for president ran on a platform to repeal obamacare and lost is a clear indication to carol that despite losing an election, which are based on the majority being the side with the MOST votes, she is the winner.
Uhhh what?
