Do I detect a hint of common sense among some democrats?
You do realize that he just agreed with the Obama plan. A combination of spending cuts & revenue increases.

Having faced reality my whole life without the blinders most people wear I can tell you I have no worries. The world is a vampire and nothing is fair. As soon as you libtards realize that we can move on to solving some problems. Until then we will go from one supposed crisis after another.

The one thing I know for sure is this. We are on a train, not a car, headed down an end-of-line track and not only are we not applying the brakes but we are pouring on the coal.

The cupboard will be bare when Obama's tax increases kick in:
Costco will spend $3 billion to pay a special dividend of $7 a share next month ahead of higher tax rates that may kick in come January.
The Issaquah-based company joins a growing number of U.S. companies, from Wynn Resorts to Tyson Foods, that are announcing special dividends at four times the pace of last year ahead of pending tax increases in 2013. The rate on dividends, which was reduced to 15 percent during the George W. Bush administration, is set to go up as President Obama and Congress work to draw more revenue from top earners.
Happens everytime there is a change n the tax code.

<quoted text>lol! That's because Romney would never reciprocate.
Why would Obama make a point of telling the American public he would be sitting down with Romney in the weeks ahead right after he won the election?

And then met with him the first time just three weeks after the election?

There's no other reason a newly elected president would be so open-armed to a former opponent or his press secretaray underscoring Obama's interest in what Romney had to say.

So, if you have $280K after taxes instead of $250K after taxes, did or dot not the change in tax code give you an extra $30K

You right whiners are dumber than sh*t.

<quoted text> Allowing a business or person is not welfare. To imply that it is means you think the government owns everything. A very dangerous point of view.
That should have said 'Allowing a business or person to keep more of the money they earn is not welfare.' Have no idea why that didn't show up.

Sen.-elect Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Thursday said Mitt Romney's comments denigrating the "47 percent" contributed in large part to the GOP's failure to attract Hispanic voters.

"Do you want to know why Barack Obama won 71 percent of the Hispanic vote? "The tone on immigration contributed. But I think far more important was 47 percent," Cruz said to the American Principles Project, according to The Atlantic:

"I think Mitt Romney's a good man, a man of character, a man who ran a hard, disciplined campaign," he said. "But Republicans nationally, the story we conveyed, was 47 percent are stuck in a static world. We don't have to worry about them is what that clip famously said."

"I cannot think of an idea more antithetical to the American principles this country was founded on," Cruz added.

Can't ya just answer RealDave's question without a bunch of diversionary excuses? Bush was handed a budget surplus, the CBO at the time projected that the debt would be all but paid off by 2013 ... what happened and who did it?
The key word there is 'projected'. Uh, let me see! There was this little thing called 9/11 and Muslims killing Americans all over the world.

And in your world, the government should restrict American's right to depend on capital gains. It is not the governments money. You keep yourfucking hand out and rely on the government to take care of you. I will continue to rely on my brokers advice.

I know this will be a shocker for you but people depended on capital gains before the Bush tax cuts.

I know. I know. Call me crazy but really, they did. People even invested then. They had stocks & the economy flourished.

You are becoming comical.

Where "all over the world" were they killing Americans?

Your other implication, that 9/11 cost $6 trillion is just absurd.

Did they cut the government back to the constitution? Did they try to get the federal government out of our lives? No. Then they are progressives. It's really not that hard to understand once you clear the brainwashing from your mind.
