all the enthusiastic idiots that thought obama was going to pay their rent, make their car payments, and, basically, take care of every aspect of their lives have to be more than a tad disappointed in the anointed one...
the other lemmings that ignored reality, and voted for a guy who is STILL clueless have to be equally disappointed in the fact that he hasn't kept any promises, or, made any strides in making things better.
rock star no more...

he was swept into office on a wave of, "it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know"...
(and a WHOLE LOTTA HELP from a very slanted media!)
now, obama might not even get the nomination to run again, let alone win a 2nd term!

that damned reality, huh?

hehehe.

BOTH parties are owned by the "elitist".

Starting to get the picture yet?

It makes no difference, it's all a elephant/donkey show for the sheeple.

Starting to get the picture yet?

Left/right paradigm to keep the masses fighting against each other.

Starting to get the picture yet?

The "elitist" do NOT want the people to come together.

Starting to get the picture yet?

The "elitist" know if they can keep you fighting each other they can move foreword with their agenda.

Starting to get the picture yet?

The "elitist" are controlling you by keeping you fighting.

Starting to get the picture yet?

Until the scumbag traitors are ran out of *DC* nothing will change.

Starting to get the picture yet?

When the American people put aside their petty differences and come together to get rid of the scumbag traitors we can take our country back.

Starting to get the picture yet?

It's either the survival of the American people or the contol of the "elitist".

Starting to get the picture yet?

Who do you stand with?

Starting to get the picture yet?

Over the weekend, I saw some friends who are still yay Obama types. They are ALL GOVERNMENT employees. They feed entirely out of the public trough. They like to remind us all they pay taxes, too. What they hate to hear is they pay about 20% of what it takes to pay their salary and massive benefits, and once they retire, it's really goldmine for them. They get 90% of their highest year salary, which means in excess of 150K bucks for life, plus virtually free medical.

Business owners, retired doctors, psychologists, and others in our circle who had to rely on social security and 401k's, have joined the ABO (anyone but obama) ranks.

Yup. Obama and the Democrats continue their attempt to take over by getting as many as possible on the government tit…guaranteeing themselves those votes.

Here in Connecticut (recently labeled by the New York Times as the most “Progressive”, i.e. Socialist, state in the country), the government unions have complete control of both houses and the Governor’s office.

Even though Connecticut is already the state with the highest per capita debt in the nation, the legislature and the Governor have just passed a budget with the biggest tax increase in the state’s history…and that tax increase INCLUDES A BILLION DOLLAR SLUSH FUND OVER AND ABOVE STATE OPERATIONAL COSTS.

Want to see what Obama and the Democrats have planned for the nation? Just keep an eye on Connecticut, where we have things like the highest electric rates, the highest gas taxes, the lowest new job creation (for the past 20 years) in the continental U.S. On that, pile every goofy socialist law and anti-business regulation the legislators can dream up.

But are you ready for this? After spending the past few months assuring the financial and social ruin of Connecticut, the Governor says he wants to go on a “listening tour” to see what we can do to attract businesses to the state.

Just call us “CUBA DEL NORTE.”

The Picture of get is you have Lost The American dream!...this Crap of a POX on both houses ,is not realistic,and is not true...Take the country back??? If you voted last time,and gave it away,then you will have to UN VOTE what you did!!..Elections have Consequences..The majority asked for and got.....The issues then were no secrete,Obama is honest,he gave us exactly what he said he would do...however once voted in ..YA GET NO REFUND!

Your other misconception,all politicians are the same,elites...not true,look at the Supreme court,the party in power selects the judges...the party in power spends the money,The power in control write all the regulations,appoint all those who run your lives...You better believe their are major difference between Liberals,and Conservatives....Why do you thing the nation is tied up in knots?...we had one party rule for two years...LOOKATCHONOW!.
America needs Checks and Balances...Debate,a choice,Bi partisanship....For pessimist like you its had to comprehend....However Our system of Government has made the USA the envy of the world...Tell us what other form of government would you want to replace our Government with???..best you crack the History of America...try ,if you can show me where it was a mob that put America to gether!...rather it was a small group of Intelligent,educated,successfu l men,all of means,with a vision of a greater calling for men..Yes i would call them eights.

So take heart, this nation has been there ,did that..From its beginning,its wars,the great depression,and all in between....Mans last hope on earth...THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

Best you read Jefferson and Addams...there political differences,make our nonsense today seem like kid stuff !!

They both died,on the 4th of July,comrades in Nation building,and as the warmest ,best of friends.....Tells ya something about America!!

Then review the CIVIL war...only a nation like AMERICA could have survived that horror!

WW1 and WW2...America Saved the world!.at extreme cost

and the Flag still waves...HOME OF THE BRAVE,LAND OF THE FREE!
HOPE YA GET THE PICTURE!!

You will either live on your feet or live/die on your knees.

The choice is yours.

You will either be free or be a slave.

The choice is yours.

You will either elect statesmen or keep electing the same terrorist traitor scumbag politicians.

The choice is yours.

You will either leave your children/grandchildren/great grandchildren a free country or you will lead them into slavery.

The choice is yours.

You will either stand on your own feet or rely on the terrorist traitor scumbag politicians.

The choice is yours.

Do you stand with We The People or do you stand with the terrorist traitor scumbag politicians.

The choice is yours.

It's time to choose your side.

This is just stereotype. No one knows why people vote for anyone, but I'm sure people don't vote for a president because he's going to "pay their rent" and take care of them. USA was broke when Obama took over, and it's still broke. The problem is no one can fix this economy right away. Even with extreme budget cuts, it will take years to get jobs back. A republican can ride in on the same high hopes, and people will only allow a short amount of time to get things right. Just look at congress' approval rating. People thought the mid-term spanking of Dems would appease voters, but now the GOP is seeing the same dissapproval in their ratings.

time to watch something other than nbc news, sweetheart.
obama's townhall meetings were FILLED with people JUST like that.

also, the people WILL give a president the time to turn things around, IF they have some confidence in his ability TO turn things around...
obama has shown the country, without a doubt, he is either totally clueless on what to do, or, he is purposely out to destroy our economy...

stop with the "he inherited" crap...
he took a bad situation and has made it worse.

This is because more people are waking up and becoming aware of his corruption and his hatred for this country.

Hussein Obama's allegiance is with America only that he wants to covert the country to a State a islam.

Prior to his fraudulent election, he and his fat-assed wife publicly announced their disdain for America, especially the military.

He is a known muslim, and a card-carrying member of the muslim brotherhood.
It is this brotherhood that is waging a war against the civilized world.

It is this brotherhood that is conducting mass murder of Christians around the world.
Thy even tried to murder a former Pope, and are still trying their best to assisinate the current Pope.

JUST SAY NO TO HUSSEIN.
SAY NO TO ISLAMOFASCISM.

Frankly I have little sympathy for those that voted for obama and now are unemployed because of him and because the democrats that controlled Congress from 2006-2010.For example those whinning college kids that got out and voted en masse for obama in 2008 and now they are about to graduate and will have no job or any life of their own and must move back in with mommy and daddy.Or the blacks that voted almost unanimously for obama and they*re still unemployed hanging out in the "hood".You get what you deserve and unfortunately the rest of us who have some brains must suffer with you.

The bill of rights are defiled everyday.

The federal reserve keeps our nation enslaved by debt.

Our nation is drifting from freedom to fascism.

The time is now, the threat is clear, the bands of tyranny are tightning around America.

America without her freedoms is like a body without a soul.

The Congress, senate and president swore to uphold the Constitution under oath and have defiled their oath. They have passed laws against the Constitution which means the greatest enemies against the Constitution are not to be found in the sand of some far off land but rather right here at home, in *DC*. The Patriot Act, the Healthcare Act, the Executive Orders, COG, TARP are all Illegal under the Constituion. Those who voted for any of these are traitors.

It is your duty to disobey Illegal laws, it is your right to disobey Illegal orders. America is being bleed dry by the traitors who are recieving payola by the lobbyist. Out of touch and out of control politicians have been ripping the very fabric of our county apart along with the Constitution in order to enrich themselves.

The greatest threat to American security is:

1)the corruption of our government

2)the Patriot Act

3)Homeland Security

4)DOJ

5)the TSA

I refuse to be servile to a tyranny. I refuse to be compliant or complicit.

We must as a nation once again embrace defiance and resistance. There are those who are willing to live on their knees, I am not one of them. I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees.

Stop investing in your own opperssion.

It is time we start meeting opperession with resistance. It is time to stand up and reclaim our inalienable rights, our Constitution and our Country.

Time for you to stop assuming people who voted for Obama were looking for handouts. This country doesn't have any money for entitlements, remember? This is the country that's trying to cut medicaid and privatize social security because we don't have the money. If the town halls are not filled with people looking for government handouts then prove it.
