Where are the jobs the Tea Party promised to create in the election of 2010 and put the country back to work? Talk about failed promises! And if Obama would have not saved GM and Chrysler in 2009, how many more unemployment checks would the government have issued? What bs you Republicans continue to spout!
Obama didn't save GM, WE, the taxpayers did. As a matter of fact we, the taxpayers, still own some of GM. I don't know anything about Tea Party promises I've never kept up with them. You ask me in a previous post about Bush era tax cuts for the rich, well in case you haven't noticed, Bush isn't in office, you tell me why his tax breaks weren't reversed. Again, you have yet to answer my questions about what Obama has done for this country and I'm speaking mainly to the middle class. He's done MORE than enough for the poor and talked a tough talk about taxing the rich more, but yet that's all he's done is talk. What has he done for those of us that are middle class Americans? He's no different than you guys claim Romney to be. He owes too much to the rich before election time to start taxing them and he needs the votes of the poor to keep them enslaved to entitlements. Now please tell me other than using OUR tax dollars to save GM, what has he done for all the other companies that have closed under his presidency, home foreclosures that took place under his presidency, unemployment over 8%, help for start up for small businesses? Don't give me your BS of he's helping with education. Obama can promise free college tuition to every person legal or illegal in our country, but can he promise them a job after they graduate?

Here's a reality check for you and all the great things Obama has done for those "green jobs.:

http://www.dividedstates.com/list-of-failed-o...

I equate the failure of the green jobs with the Chevy Volt, you know the car that costs 89k to build and GM is selling for about 40k? No wonder GM is in trouble if this is how they think businesses succeed. It's so pathetic that we, the taxpayers, paid twice for GM, once to "save them from bankruptcy" and twice to purchase the Volt for government use.

ok man ok man...Why should I pay more because you are too lazy to get a job and do your part? Why should the upper class pay more for the lower class to get a free ride?
Did I say you should? Nope.
Why should I pay so much in taxes for Mitt to get large handouts?
And Mitt's father got welfare for years.
Are you getting a tax hike? Do you expect us to believe you are making over 250K per year?
And who said I was to lazy to get a job? Oh, I forgot, Mitt said it. Does that mean it is so? Of course not, because he is just a f_cking lying rich kid and you are dumb enough to believe him.
His parents handed him his first house.
I wish I could save a thousand a month by having my home paid for by daddy. It sure would make it easier to save up to build businesses.

I am aware of the casualties of both sides. I do believe it was about federal government involvement in states affairs. Robert E Lee has been deemed one of the greatest military tacticians of the time. It was unfortunate the Southern states lost due to the incapability to wage war logistically, i.e. money, troops and equipement and all related support for that. I also believe slavery would of been abolished later rather than sooner. Civilized soceity would have dictated it happen eventually through elections. But I think it would have and should have been up to the people to decide for themselves and not forced upon by the federal government, regardless of politics or who would of been offended or hurt. The slaves did have an alternative. They could of gone back to their motherlands, but they chose to stay.
I do think AZ is an equal as a human being as much as my kids and my wife. But we are not equal because we do not share the same values or ideas on life. I can walk on my side of the street but appearently, they(Seven, Mike,yourself, TSF and AZ) think that because they are free they have the right to go where ever they choose and they feel it is ok to force their points of views and ideas on everyone and "damn the torpedos" if you disagree.
And because of that is why I say, and I do mean this from the bottom of my heart, fuck you. We will agree to disagree on everything, I will not cooperate and I will show no quarter. You want bipartisanship, go join a social fraternity. Majority rules. It always rules.
I plan on doing my part and changing the current majority in November.
By the way...How many Americans can actually claim this?
"What Disability Benefits Qualify as Earned Income for EITC?
IRS considers disability retirement benefits as earned income until you reach minimum retirement age. Minimum retirement age is the earliest age you could have received a pension or annuity if you did not have the disability.
After you reach minimum retirement age, IRS considers the payments as a pension and not earned income.
Benefits such as Social Security Disability Insurance, SSI, or military disability pensions are not considered earned income and cannot be used to claim Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC). You may qualify for the credit only if you, or your spouse, if filing a joint return, have other earned income."
I think some of that 47% can claim, but not all. Where is your accountability for your teammates?
Here is the irony.
"they feel it is ok to force their points of views and ideas on everyone and "damn the torpedos" if you disagree."
Now apply that to the slaves and slave owners.

Freedom should not be up for a vote. It is an inalienable right endowed by our creator(nature).

Silver, Repubs have also done secret videos, but today it came out that Mother Jones, the people that first leaked the video, admitted to "editing" some of the video. Now that's dirty pool. Why would they need to "edit" the video? My reasoning is, they couldn't make their smoking gun case without "editing" the video. I think if either side is going to secretly tape and leak or post videos, post the whole video, not this selective editing.
Mitt stands by the claims of the video. The statements are long winded. I cannot see where there could be something that actually changed the context. Again,Mitt stands by the statements. He just says it could have been worded better or something to that effect.
Fact is, the hard right wingers agree with Mitt's comments. Do you?

The other thing that I find incredibly funny about Jimmy Carter's grandson finding this tape is that he's 35 and unemployed. He can't even find employment under Obama!!! Surely he's not one of those awful trustfund babies that really gets some posters on here upset!!:)
. Turn Mitt's foot in the mouth into a referendum again Carter. You should work for fox news.
Carter is not running for president, Mitt is. And he just got busted. He is now going to lose the election for speaking his true thoughts. I love it.

its so easy to get caught up in the animosity of politics and make it your religion, but...we are all American. One day we will all see eye to eye...when people like silver and I(at times, im not that extreme) either learn or die out. A political party can and will destroy this country. Only if people like silver push it to the extreme.
It was not edited, it was just released in segments. The most newsworthy first as in any capitalist news business. One can see the whole video now. Nothing was shown that was out of context.

I don't accept Mitt's lies or Obama's. We have a case of the lesser of the two evils. I've had 3 1/2 years of Obama promising everything and not following through on anything. I don't want to hear the congress this and congress that, he had 2 years of a democratic congress and almost 2 years of a republican congress. It appears he can't work with people within his own party because they didn't accomplish anything more than the republicans have. Obama was suppose to be the a uniter, but it seems he more of a divider.
Did not accomplish anything? Then why are you bitching about the health care plan that he and the democratic congress accomplished?

Voting for the lesser of evils? I love it when republicans are reduced to such words. Your guy will surely lose if that is the attitude of voters.

Arnold, I don't think anyone can beat Obama and it's not because of Obama's record. Take into consideration that Obama has done everything he can in the last two years of his presidencey to insure re-election. He's allowed illegals to stay in this country and then receive funds to go to college. I don't care if they were born here, if they're parents are illegal then they are, to me. So he's catered to the Hispanic votes. He has done MORE than enough to secure the vote of the welfare population in our country. I can't believe the Dept. Of Agriculture is running tv commercials saying "Give SNAP a try" and this is also in Spanish and English. He has done away with the laws enacted by Bill Clinton about what welfare recepient accomplish to stay on welfare and apparently now, that's sit on your butt and do nothing or "Give SNAP a try." I'm not talking about people that have lost their jobs and need temporary assistance. Obamacare is nothing more than a ruse for poor uneducated people to think AGAIN, that the day after the election Obama's going to pay their medical bills, everybody is getting $500 and Obama's going to help pay their rent. This happened after the last election. The reason Obama is catering to college age adults by raising the amount they can receive again from the government for a "small interest rate" that can be paid over 20 years is because there are no jobs as there was when you and I attended college and we actually worked and paid our tuition. I'm no MBA, but I have enough sense to know that colleges are not only teaching institutions, but they're also run like a business. If colleges are going to compete they have to recruit the best they can for professors and most college professors don't work for peanuts, therefore, the cost of college has increased as well. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Obama is the biggest con of all, he's written a check his butt can't cover and it will take all those with entitlement signs in their eyes four more years to figure this out.
Look at stats that show the rate of wealth in America lately. You will see the rich are doing well, very well.

So it looks like Obama is working for everyone, not just his team. Mitt is just working for a small team of people. Sorry, but the president is supposed to work for us all. Mitt has not gotten the memo.

Why are you and TCBY jealous of those who have wealth? I have posted several times, names and numbers of people who are qualified to assist you in managing your wealth, for a nominal fee.

My handout or solution not good enough or you too prideful?

Ok kiddo. I will slow down so you can understand. The 47% that Romney referred are the voters from the Democrat party. So, I ask again, why would a republican candidate attempt to generate votes from his opposing party? That is like koolaid with no sugar.
Rewatch the video and give me some feed back.
He said way more than that about the 47%. Watch the video.

Everything starts with the price of gas.
Then why did Bush deregulate the market to speculate on oil futures?
