Of course other Obama voters thought they would get something for nothing. Some voted for him because he's half black. One in particular got a thrill up his leg. Others bought into his rhetoric hook, line, and sinker.Plenty of Obama voters regret those votes. You've been told the meaning of that statement. That statement you a referring to, does not mean "all". Are you ignorant or insane, pick one and go back to grammar school.
Yep, Obama voters, doesn't really mean ALL, it just means what ever number a person wants to envision from the context of your off-the-cuff remarks that are not really intended to be factual statements, So, Obama voters could refer to ALL but one, which would mean it doesn't reference ALL Obama voters, just any plural number that fits any of the unsupported statements you make.

Yep, reading you loud and clear, putz.

If the republicans are the ones to blame, why are the democrats sweatin' losing the Senate? Seems to me that if the democrats were so awesome, keeping the Senate would be a cinch and taking the House would be even easier. Care to explain?

The report comes just a week after AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka said the union group would not endorse any more Democrats that following President Obama’s economic policy.
Yes, let's hear more of what AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka has to say...

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/12/playboo...

AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka on Thursday said the Democratic Party should push a populist message ahead of the 2014 election, calling the next election an opportunity to win back seats in the House.

“Populism works. It works. If it’s your message, and what you believe in, and it’s your policy. It’s what Americans believe in,” Trumka told POLITICO’s Mike Allen during the Playbook Breakfast event at the Newseum.

Trumka told an audience of about 100 people that, as a result of the growing income inequality in the country, he sees a trend toward populism in the United States reflected in the Occupy movement, the election of Elizabeth Warren and even in the selection of Pope Francis as Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.”

“There’s a growing trend toward populism in this country. But the policies haven’t caught up with what Americans believe,” Trumka said.

...Looking to the 2014 election, Trumka expressed disappointment that the Democratic Party isn’t fighting harder on minimum-wage legislation and unemployment insurance, and he said he sees those as winning issues for the party.

“Populism can’t be a bumper sticker in October. Republicans are shooting themselves in the foot, but the Democrats aren’t capitalizing on it,” he said.“Talk is cheap. Don’t just talk the talk. Walk the walk. Put forward the Harkin-Miller bill. Fight for it. Hold people accountable,” he added.

Yep, just shutup and be happy you've got stagnant wages, it's just a fact of life.

So, is this another off-the-cuff remark, or something that you can back up with specific examples.

Gun-toting border militia terrifies smugglers — who turn out to be bat-counting biologists
By David Ferguson
Thursday, September 4, 2014 12:05 EDT
http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/09/04/gun-tot...

A group of heavily-armed militia surrounded and confronted a group of people near the U.S.-Mexico border who they thought were illegal migrants or smugglers, but who turned out to be a group of conservationists conducting a wildlife population survey.

...A group of heavily-armed militia surrounded and confronted a group of people near the U.S.-Mexico border who they thought were illegal migrants or smugglers, but who turned out to be a group of conservationists conducting a wildlife population survey.

...The group of conservationists filed a formal complaint with the sheriff’s department about the confrontation, which very well could have ended in violence.

Estrada said that one of the border militia apologized to the angry and frightened scientists, but they “weren’t having any of it.”

“Of course, they weren’t very receptive about the apology. They actually told them that’s something you should not be doing. There’s danger out there. There’s other groups of people in campsites,” he explained.

Gardner Canyon is a popular spot for camping and hiking and people are often there at night, said the biologists. The militia are needlessly putting people’s lives at risk, they said.

Estrada was careful to stipulate that the sheriff’s department did not invite the armed men to patrol the border and that law enforcement personnel consider them to be a nuisance.

“These people that are completely out of their environment. They really don’t know the area. They don’t know the terrain. They have little knowledge of the dynamics of the border. So it can be a real problem,” he said.“We really don’t want them here.”

Nonetheless, indignation among U.S. nativists and other conservatives about the recent influx of unaccompanied minors arriving at the border has sent new waves of self-appointed guardians to the U.S. border, often packing high-powered weapons. The militia group in this incident was composed of out-of-towners who live in Colorado.

“It can be a problem for them. It can be a problem for the people, just like in this particular case. Things could have gone terribly wrong,” explained Estrada.“They really don’t accomplish anything. They really don’t. With about 1,000 Border Patrol Agents here in Santa Cruz County, a little group of any militiamen are not going to make any difference at all. As a matter of fact, they’re going to get in the way and they could get hurt. Or they could hurt somebody else.”

As they rushed to confront the bat-counting scientists, the militiamen called Border Patrol agents to the area, pulling them off of areas that actually need surveillance, thereby compromising security efforts.

Estrada urged anyone who is confronted by volunteer border militia to report the matter to local authorities as soon as they are able.

This entire post is amusing. Again, if the democrats and Obama are doing such a jam up job, why are Obama's job approval ratings in the ditch and the vulnerable dems trying their hardest to distance themselves from Obama? Seriously, you moonbats post your so called "facts" when all we have to do is take a look around and see that you are all delusional liars.

Abbott’s Houston raid didn’t end with arrests, but shut down voter drive
By JAMES DREW
Published: 30 August 2014 11:24 PM
http://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/state...

On an overcast Monday afternoon, officers in bulletproof vests swept into a house on Houston’s north side. The armed deputies and agents served a search warrant. They carted away computers, hard drives and documents.

The raid targeted a voter registration group called Houston Votes, which was accused of election fraud. It was initiated by investigators for Attorney General Greg Abbott. His aides say he is duty-bound to preserve the integrity of the ballot box.

His critics, however, say that what Abbott has really sought to preserve is the power of the Republican Party in Texas. They accuse him of political partisanship, targeting key Democratic voting blocs, especially minorities and the poor, in ways that make it harder for them to vote, or for their votes to count.

A close examination of the Houston Votes case reveals the consequences when an elected official pursues hotly contested allegations of election fraud.

The investigation was closed one year after the raid, with no charges filed. But for Houston Votes, the damage was done. Its funding dried up, and its efforts to register more low-income voters ended. Its records and office equipment never were returned. Instead, under a 2013 court order obtained by Abbott’s office, they were destroyed.

And the dramatic, heavily armed raid never was necessary, according to Fred Lewis, president of Texans Together, the nonprofit parent group of Houston Votes.“They could have used a subpoena,” he said.“They could have called us and asked for the records. They didn’t need guns.”

The previously unreported 2010 raid coincided with agitation by a local tea party group and Lewis’ testimony in the trial of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, R-Sugar Land. Lewis had filed a complaint against DeLay that, in large part, led to his indictment on corruption charges....

Lucky for the ultra rich that the uneducated electorate put Obama in office, Gerrymandering has been and will continue to be used by both sides. Would you prefer that district boundaries never be changed? Talking about your views on corporate taxes, shouldn't the same apply to individual districts? Should areas of high crime and fire should pay higher taxes for the services they receive in addition to the taxes on the "rent" of their private property based on it's value? Government doesn't work, government serves, or is supposed to do so.
