Today's news...Obama has deported 400,000 illegals this year. So, the far left is mad at him, and the right keeps blaming him for not doing anything. The guy can't catch a break. He's the only president we have so I wish him well. I am an American.
Some poor people may work the system fot dollars, or groceries,, but the rich elite work it for billions. All of those agricultural subsidies, tax breaks etc,are at your expense, mister working man. How many of those "job creators" have rode the market wave they themselves created by shipping jobs overseas? and then rode it back down by selling short? Again, at your expense. How much are they paying people like grover Norquist and Karl Rove to rig election districts, harass voters and threaten runoff elections, to extort compliance.? How much are worthless, WORTHLESS, doughball blabbermouths like Limbaugh and Beck making for feeding you bullshit and delivering your votes?
Some of you can't let go of the tired old racist shit you got from papaw and your pastor. Some of you just hate Obama because it's popular right now. You will always remain sheep, and be led around by your weaknesses. With any luck, you'll be too fucking dumb to notice it.
Your reply! Obama Sux! You must be wearing blinders. My poor ole dumb ass grandpa was a black democrat. He was an Uncle Tom.

You have been divided and conquered just like they have. you rightly point out faults with the democrats but somehow can't see the equal or larger threats from the right.
for exmple, you probably believe that if we open up domestic oil drilling, that will give you cheaper gasoline. Stop and think...it will go on the world market and China will buy it. You are a SUCKER extrordinaire, if you believe the right wing extremist rhetoric. It is aimed at simpletons.
Why do you care so much about making a few rich people richer unless you are one of them?
You blame Obama for cgas prices, wall street, employment, border security and the budget. The largest art of our situation is due to factors such as the FED, the world economy, supply and demand, a do-nothing congress, and the Bush administration. As well as Obama and Clinton.
Don't listen to windbags in the media who are paid to mess with your mind. STOP and THINK.
You literally didn't read anything I posted? I believe the republicans are now acting like democrats. The republican party is dead because of it.

And to answer your ridiculous comment about drilling for oil, YES! OF COURSE I BELIEVE IT WILL LOWER GAS PRICES! The law of supply and demand agrees with me. And it sounds to me like you are the one being snowed by the LIBERAL media!

Obama promised transparency. We got a secretive Chicago-style politician. He promised to bring both sides together, but then blamed republicans for having the most division between the two sides that we have ever seen. He took credit for BUSH'S military killing Bin Laden (not taking up for Bush... he was just another big-spending liberal). He claimed in college that he was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia (there is literally proof that he personally claimed this) and the fact that he spent a lot of money to make sure his transcripts stayed sealed just goes to reinforce it. He has circumvented congress multiple times to push his agenda. He is personally responsible for borrowing trillions of dollars to temporarily prop up a failing economy. He bailed out the auto industry and they can't even begin to repay the debt. Dependency on food stamps has literally doubled. If you add in the people who have given up on finding a job, the unemployment numbers have risen sharply... even after trillions in "stimulus".

I could literally do this all day, but I think you get the picture. If Bush was bad, this guy is off-the-charts.

Do you even understand what the Tea Party, or conservatism in general is? They simply want a smaller government and less taxes. No conservatives are against women's rights. No conservatives believe rape is okay. Turn off the mainstream liberal media for five seconds and think for yourself.

JUST A REMINDER:
Popular Vote 2012: And Other Takeaways From Election 2012 While 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney continues to behave like a sore losers by decrying that Obama won reelection because of gifts to women, blacks and Hispanics — the electoral blocs that propelled the president into the White House for a second time — votes are still being counted towards the official totals of the 2012 election.

And though Obama won the Electoral College by a landslide, the popular vote gap between the two candidates is expected to be much closer than in the state-by-state competition. A little over two weeks after the election, here are 10 takeaways regarding the results obtained by the president and the former governor of Massachusetts:

1. Obama Wins the Popular Vote Too: In the days leading to the election, the supposed closeness of the polls suggested that Obama had a good chance of prevailing in the Electoral College while Mitt Romney could potentially win the popular vote. It didn't happen. Out of 122 million voters, a little fewer than 61 million (or 50.6%) voted for Obama while about 58 million (47.8% did so for Romney).

2. Libertarian Impact Not as Large as Expected: In the weeks leading into the election, analysts though Libertarian Party presidential nominee Gary Johnson would obtain a considerable larger amount of the popular vote, with some suggesting the former New Mexico governor could win 5% of the vote. It didn't happen either. Johnson, who for some was seen as the successor of libertarian-leaning 2012 Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul, obtained just about 1% of the vote.

3. The Female Gap is Alive and Well in American Politics: Though, at some point after the first presidential debate, Mitt Romney seemed to close the gap among female voters, the president ended up winning this key demographic. Obama took an approximate 55% of female votes, though he lost the male one to Romney by winning just 45% of the male vote.

4. Whites Went for Romney and Non Whites for Obama: Not a surprising one. Romney won almost 60% of the white vote, which however wasn't enough to counter the president's support among blacks, Hispanics and Asian Americans.

5. Millennials Are Still Fired Up and Ready to Go: When Romney picked Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) as his VP, Republicans thought the policy wonk would attract young voters with his talk about the debt and the clever "fading Obama posters" metaphor. It didn't happen. Not only did millennials stuck with the president in 2012, but they also showed up in larger numbers than in 2008.

6. The GOP is an Aging Party: As in 2008, in 2012 older voters went Republican by supporting Romney over Obama. In fact, voters over 40 tended to vote for Romney while those under 39 were more likely to go with the president.

7. Republican Voter Suppression Backfired: Despite efforts by Republican governors in the crucial swing states of Florida and Ohio, that tried to shorten early vote hours, Obama voters showed up in large numbers and didn't mind to be online waiting for hours in the cold or hot weathers to cast their vote.

Bottom line should be---Obama voters will stand in the cold and rain for anything free.

He bailed out the auto industry and they can't even begin to repay the debt. Dependency on food stamps has literally doubled. If you add in the people who have given up on finding a job, the unemployment numbers have risen sharply... even after trillions in "stimulus".

Yes, we could do this all day, but basically you are wrong on all counts. If oil companies drill more, sure it will affect supply and demand. Any new supply would impact prices, it doesn't have to be in USA. But the tea party specifies that drilling in the USA will somehow make us self sufficient and reduce our dependency on "foreign oil". It's not "American oil" just because they drilled it here. That's misleading, it all goes on the world market and is sold in blocks. It will make certain people richer. That'smostly what it's about.. Don't let them fool you.
The liberal press says it's hazardous oil. I am not a chemist. Maybe it is, maybe it's not.
The stimulus saved the country, in my opinion, but whatever.. obama and Bush both signed off on it. It happened. Move on. Likewise, the birther issue.Before disrupt the entire nation and world over the possibility that Obama was born in Kenya to an American mother, check with Ted Cruz. He says that's not a problem. Is it OK for tea partiers but not for Obama/
Unemployment has in fact gone down, not enough but still gone down If you don't trust the numbers, I get that, because they all use stats to mislead us. Bush touted jobs, but they were fast food and Walmart jobs because the former middle class was now unemployed.
I am not a "liberal" but I admit I watch mostly liberal leaning media, but with a skeptical eye. Fox news insults my intelligence more that the rest. If you all prefer to watch Fox etc, fine, but be skeptical of their pandering and question everything you hear. We'll all be better off if everyone does that.

Obama is not "personally responsible for borrowing trillion" because the government does not work that way. The president can not borrow money without congress. My gawd, even my rudimentary understanding of government won't buy that nonsense. That's why I wish people would question what they hear. PlLEASE, PEOPLE! STOP AND THINK!

I don't know how to put this without it sounding like a personal attack, so I'll go ahead and apologize before hand.

You are dumb and don't even know it. It's not your fault, though. Government education does that on purpose. It's all part of the dumbing down of America. That's how you people have the will pulled over your eyes so easily.

I don't want it to become personal attacks, either. What you just said about me, is exactly what I was thinking but in reverse.. Ain't that a bitch? Maybe we're both ign'nt and don't know it. Public education and the mass media could do a better job of informing people. They convince us we are already smart, and we run around talking shit.
Most people do not know what the federal budget is. The biggest chunk of it, almost half, is owed to savings bonds, purchased by patriots like us, and our retirement plans. What dooe the gov. do with ll that money? Hand out food stamps to hillbillies and needles to junkies, right?
But, stop n think.That's small potatoes compared to GW Bush's 2 very long and costly wars. It's just wrong to blame Obama for that. How dumb does one have to be to buy that crap?
Then there is relief for disaster victims. Red states have a lot of hurricanes.
If you have a mortgage or any credit, you have a deficit. larger budgets can handle larger deficits.
we have a large federal budget, it always has a deficit. Let's stop the rhetoric and focus on individual issues that need fixin"...like too many hillbillies on food stamps.

I have to say i agree in principal with most of your points, but I see the" bad guy" more on the wealthy right, in a contrived melodrama probably inspired by pro wrestling, driven by people like the Koch brothers, executed by Rove, Norquist, demint, Palin, etc. taking political advantage of the opportunity to pile all the blame on Obama for everything while "taking the country back'(back to the feudal system), as they laugh all the way to the bank.
i'm mostly pissed at the right for decades of outsourcing and job killing. Turning the middle class into fast food workers. They've learned how to piss on your leg and tell you it'd raining, in the name of God and country.
Watch out!! Commies are coming to take your guns!! lol..
