The only people that suspect Obama is a traitor are wingnut teabaggers like yourself. The rest of us suspect that you boneheads are the traitors. The wacky right has done everything in it's power to sabotage the economic recovery. Your allegiances are suspect. In short, America does not trust you. That's why the teabagger movement remains a small minority of angry white guys.

The birthers would have to shut their faces if they want to back Raphael (Ted) Cruz's run for the presidency.
Raphael was born in the very socialist Canada to a father from Communist Cuba. How can we be sure that Raphael isn't a Manchurian candidate just waiting to sell us out to the commies.[sarcasm]
Bush was building a border fence. Obama stopped it within his first 2 weeks in office.

Hate crimes against whites are astonishing, Obama decided that only whites should be excluded from hate crime laws.

aMERICANS SUFFER FOM UNEMPLOYMENT, Obama comtinues the outsourcing and insourcing, keeping Americans from working.

He is a traitor.

So apparently you have tried both.
Tell us about when and for how long you were on food stamps. Most of the people receiving aid are white after all.
That's the differance between whites and minorities. Whites want to work, to support their families.
Minorities just want a job that pays for their over-production.
Minorities are bums, whites are not.

Rick Perry has sold out! He claims to be a Republican! He only makes decisions that are good for Rick Perry! If we continue to vote for these ultra-rich candidates, this state will be no better than California before long! Watch out Texans! You are having the wool pulled over your eyes!

Yes he did. That was a stupid and expensive project that would have had very little effect. The right wing loves to spend money on idiotic ideas like the fence regardless of whether it is likely to work or not.

Arrests and deportations are way up under Obama, and it didn't require an expensive useless fence.

I hate to get down in the weeds with one of you low information wingnuts, but I'll type slow so maybe you can understand.

Hate crimes are grounded in historical violence and discrimination. White folks never suffered from such violence and discrimination because the are the majority, so they don't need the protection. That is not to say there is no racially motivated black on white crimes it just is not covered under the hate crime laws. Such crimes are still prosecutable under existing criminal statutes.

Wow! You must have hit the shine pretty hard before you wrote that mess. Not only is it written like a five year old, it's full of utter none sense.

Obama is a radical Muslim. Why else would he provide for the Muslim brotherhood, rather than Israel when they needed us? In the bible it states you are to NEVER go against the holy land. Way to go democrats.

Defiant is nothing more than a bumper sticker robo commenter. Half Wit is too much credit for such a dim wit. We must remember he’s not heavy; He’s our brother. Sad to have some so handicapped walk our streets. Perhaps on the long, long road to genetic engineering they may come to discover a cure for such lost souls. Until then we must carry him and those with similar mental issues. Defiant makes for a good argument for extending background checks on gun controls.

Coo Coo an apt avatar for this one. DOW at 15,055 up from the 6,047 that the Bushwhacking republicans handed us. Coo Coo prefers to advance inequality of the tea intoxicated republicans. Sad to see how far Texas has descended in their education. They now prefer failures for their leaders.
Republicans mandate for the corporatist elitist. Supreme Court 2010 opens the door to corporatist unlimited funding to our politics. No disclosure required! Corporations in the USA from China, Russia, India, etc. etc. can now purchase our democracy. This is what coo-coo’s prefer.
…………………………Atlantis…………………………
………………There’s a slow train a coming.…………………
…………Ominous Onus’s Omens of Corporatist Elitists!……
………..As the elders of our times choose to remain blind……
Some think that life is but a corporate but you and I have been through that. I hear the riders a coming… Hollering winds all along the watchtowers. Winds of change are rattling our windows. Roberts Jan. 2010 Court ruling of unlimited funds, of corporatist, will hence forth be legal to purchase our politics. Gauntlet has been delivered to the people.
No identification of donors funds required ! Therefore we now observe how Sir Koch is first in line to take advantage of this. Chinese, Iranians, and Germans corporations have an avenue of approach to our democratic principles. Magistrate Roberts has unlatched the draw bridge and Sir Koch is lowering it for the riders that are approaching, and the winds begin to howl. Dust in the winds filling the hallways of our serene democracy.
Sounds of silence from the populace. Camelot besieged and infiltration of the ominous riders enter.
“We The People In Order To Form A More Perfect Union” are interrupted. Voices fill the air, sound the alarm! Trumpet’s have been silenced. Voices fall before the onslaught of the riders. Chaos, fear run within the halls of freedom.
Pied Piper with his dancing prancing Fox seeks to calm the distraught subjects. Voices cry Union, we must Unite, as the riders ride on by. Carving out the multitudes into their separate groups of subjugation.
Ahh… in ruin and polluted beyond appreciation of life. Fair Atlantis submerges beneath the waves of corporatist corruptive pollution, never to rise again. Ahhh Farewell to my dear Atlantis.
As the elders of our times choose to remain blind.
Now why can I not know who paid for this carnage of democracy?
The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is. The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy! Winston Churchill

LOL this from one who voted for republicans and now is so ashamed of it he claims he is INDEPENDENT. Typical right wing nut; comments with a forked comment. Losers in the White House just had the DOW closed at 15,055 up from their Bushwhacking Texan republicans 6,047 . Texas is sure going the way of the DO-DO bird and the Coo-Coo’s.

In case you haven't noticed, the economy has been Obamas for the past 4 1/2 years. Do try to keep up. Raising the debt 6 trillion dollars over what Bush left isn't fixing the problem and the unemployment rate is unchanged at best.
Put up your DNC pom poms cheerleader and go take a math class.


We have had our arguments in the past about your limited abilities to math. So take the time to actually do the math to DJ”s numbers. Your nonsense’s bumper sticker mentality fixated on $6Tillion does not take into account the HUGE DEBT the Bushwhacking republicans handed over of $1.4 Trillion per year plus the 800,000 per month going into unemployment. Obama in 4 ½ years have brought us to an economy with a DOW closing at 15,055 up from the republican Bushwhacking 6,047. Problem is not yet fully solved only identifies your lack of comprehension. Consider it took F.D.R. 13 years to get us out of the republican Great Depression and Obama got us out of the republican Great Recession in less than 2 years and in 4 ½ ; has us back on track to full recovery.
Now any one of the republican candidates would have us return to failed policies and we would now be heading back to desolation row.
Now with your 3 corner Tea Bag hat dance, dance to the republicans chants for inequality. The Coo-Coo’s are out in force today.

DJ’s numbers are correct and very simple to follow.
National debt at start of Bush’s first term:$5.7 trillion
At end of Bush’s second term:$10.35 trillion (+45%)

Household debt at start of Bush’s first term: about $8 trillion
At end of Bush’s second term: more than $14 trillion (+43%)

Unemployment rate at start of Bush’s first term: 4.2 percent
At end of Bush’s second term: 7.2 percent (+42%)

Budget surplus at start of Bush’s first term:$128 billion
Budget deficit at end of Bush second term:$1.2 trillion

Annual cost of Afghan war in 2001:$20 billion
Annual cost of Afghan and Iraq wars in 2009:$208 billion

That is a lot for our President to try to undo - especially when the Republicans don't want any progress.
