What kind of f*cking idiot watches Bush & the Republicans create the worst recession ion 80 years, a housing collapse, a near financial melt down, two quagmire wars & double the debt (after starting with a balanced budget) and then has the gall to blame Obama.
You people are just dumber than sh*t.
You're simply wrong and shortsighted - as usual - conveniently ignoring the part Democrats played in all of the above.

Do some research first. Then open mouth and insert foot.

For President Obama, Eric Cantor's loss is a case of 'be careful what you wish for': bit.ly/1xICZCG pic.twitter.com/UQMflAtGcy 6 hrs ago

"So if you think Barack Obama has trouble dealing with House Republicans now, you haven't seen anything yet. Not only is the GOP favored to pick up an additional five to eight House seats in November — adding to its 233-199 majority (there are three current vacancies)— it could also pick up four to eight more Senate seats. A gain of six would give the Republicans a majority.'

We have a rogue president who doesn't reach out to anyone in Congress - even his own party - and is now making decisions unilaterally without believing it necessary for the Executive Branch to be checked and balanced.

Democrats in the Senate are just as livid. Barack Hussein Obama will single-handedly destroy liberalism and, unless we survive the next few years, he will take down the country with it.

The golden goose of liberalism in 2008 has been cooked. Obama is just basting it now.

Iraq Wants America Back

Two and a half years after the last U.S. soldier departed, an al Qaeda offshoot is in control of Mosul and headed for Baghdad—and Iraq’s prime minister is requesting U.S. air strikes.

We absolutely do not know who this man is. He has vague connections to anti-American organizations and characters who long for America's demise and punishment.

John Case wrote an article in "People's World" stating "reelecting Obama is absolutely essential".

People's World is committed to popularize the ideas of Marxism and Bill of Rights socialism. The websites enjoy a special relationship with the Communist Party USA.

Much of his past is cloaked in absolute secrecy and too many questions remain unanswered.

He has surrounded himself with corrupt advisors and politicians and appointed inept heads of departments whose role it is to become his human shields..

History will tell the true story in time. Every single liberal on this site and elsewhere will be ashamed of their gullibility and being so willingly misled.

I sincerely hope they realize it much sooner.

Was Brat's Victory About Immigration Amnesty? You Betcha!

Mark Thiessen assured viewers that Brat’s victory was not about amnesty at all, but was an expression of the same anti-establishment sentiment we’ve seen elsewhere this year. He specifically cited Ben Sasse’s victory in the Nebraska Senate GOP primary, and Chris McDaniel’s forcing incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran into a run-off in Mississippi.

Let’s take those:

(1) Ben Sasse was running for an open seat — there was no “establishment” Republican to defeat.

(2) McDaniel has made his opposition to amnesty the centerpiece of his campaign.

We’re 0 for 2, so far. What else you got?

There were, in fact, a couple of tea party challenges this year to so-called “establishment” Republican incumbents such as McConnell and John Cornyn. They both voted against the Schumer-Rubio amnesty.

They both won.

That’s 0 for 4.

Carl Cameron blamed Cantor’s loss on the rain:“It’s worth noting that the weather was foul here yesterday and today as well. So some of it may have been nature helping out David Brat.”

Similarly, the New Yorker explained Cantor’s loss by saying,“Low turnout undoubtedly played a role.”

Sixty-five thousand ballots were cast in the Cantor-Brat contest. That is not a large turnout for a congressional primary election — it’s gigantic. In Cantor’s 2012 primary, 47,037 people voted. In the only other two congressional primaries in Virginia on Tuesday — the day with all that rain!— 38,855 people voted in one and 17,444 in the other.

Every excuse in the book is being trotted out to claim this election was about anything but amnesty. Cantor was “arrogant.” He was “out of touch.” Democrats crossed over to vote for Brat. Cantor was “overconfident.”(Also, the sun was in his eyes!)

It’s all the same boilerplate used to rationalize any election loss. Let’s take one. Overconfident? Are you kidding me? Cantor spent more than $5 million on a congressional primary!

Cantor’s idiotic statements about amnesty lit up talk radio, were denounced daily on major websites such as Breitbart.com , and were the dominant theme of Brat’s campaign, especially in the last few months. The influential Kausfiles.com became a one-man Eric Cantor Rapid Response Team on amnesty.

Brat didn’t just win; he walloped Cantor, 55.5 percent to 44.5 percent.

Still not convinced Brat’s victory was about amnesty? Then tell me why the New York Times ran this headline on Wednesday:“Why Did Cantor Lose? Not Easy to Explain.”

Following a wave of violence that has seen two major cities fall to insurgent forces, the government of Iraq has asked the United States for air assistance in quelling the uprising by al-Qaeda affiliated militants, U.S. officials confirmed to NBC News on Wednesday.
The White House is mulling several options 'including the possibility of providing 'kinetic support' for the Iraqi military" which is fighting the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an affiliate of al-Qaeda.

Can someone explain to me what "kinetic support" means?

"With votes counted in 99 percent of the precincts, 64,418 votes were cast, roughly a 37 percent increase over two years ago. Despite that, Cantor polled fewer votes than he did in 2012 — 28,631 this time, compared with 37,369 then." (Hamptonroads)
You do understand it was a primary, right? You do understand that number includes children not old enough to vote? Good Grief!!!!
