He's about as gracious as a Wart Hog.
He had a democrat-controlled congress doing his bidding the first two years. Now, he doesn't know how to act.

If Hillary runs, you're screwed and you know it.
You also know that Rove ruined your Party by turning it over to Evangelical nutjobs.
Wish Hillary had won in 2008. Would have been a lot better than what we got and have again.

The Obama Machine went after Hillary the same lying way it went after Romney.

She was pretty p---ed off.

Remember when Bill said, "They pulled the race card on ME!!"

Florida is joining other states in opting out of certain provisions of Obamacare after the Supreme Court ruling.

Florida will opt out of spending approximately $1.9 billion more taxpayer dollars required to implement a massive entitlement expansion of the Medicaid program

Medicaid costs will grow even faster under ObamaCare and education funding will be affected adversely if Medicaid spending isn't controlled.

Florida will also opt out insurance “exchanges” that will result in higher insurance premium costs – more money out of the pockets of Florida’s families and businesses.

The Congressional Budget Office has said insurance premiums on state exchanges will increase another 10-13% under the rules of Obamacare. In states already operating insurance exchanges under similar rules, health care premiums are substantially more expensive.

I didn't predict anything. Not now or ever that I'm aware of.

I simply stated a fact. Obama doesn't know how to play nice with anyone except democrats who do his bidding without question.

Reagan was a man who was comfortable in his own skin, knew exactly what he believed and was the Great Communicator.

Obama acts senile sometimes already. And he's much younger than Reagan when he left office.

Also, Reagan wasn't diagnosed with Alzheimer's until five years after his presidency.

The proof is in the pudding over the Bush tax cuts. They were followed by a record 52 straight months of job creation, producing 8 million new jobs, with the unemployment rate falling to 4.4%. Business investment spending, which had declined for 9 straight quarters, reversed and increased 6.7% per quarter, producing all those new jobs.
Because of that increased investment, labor productivity soared by 2.5% annually from 2003 to 2007, higher than the averages of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. As a result, real after tax income per capita increased by more than 11%.
Manufacturing output soared to its highest level in 20 years. The stock market revived, creating almost $7 trillion in new shareholder wealth. From 2003 to 2007, the S&P 500 almost doubled. After the Bush tax cuts started in 2001, quickly ending the 2001 recession, the economy continued to grow for another 73 months. From 2000 to 2007, real GDP grew by more than 17%, meaning an additional $2.1 trillion for the American people.

I'll see your 8 million new jobs when Bush lowered the tax rate and raise you 22 million new jobs when Clinton raised the tax rates. I'll see your 2000 to 2008 record and raise you 1950 to 1970 that saw America's greatest growth when the top rates were 90% and 75%.

You just proved my point; the negro for some reason is mired in a culture of violence. That doesnt mean that ALL are crimnals; just at a rate seven timer higher per capta than the next highest ethnicity.

I wouldn't call saving Florida's taxpayers $1.9 billion that would be required to implement a massive entitlement expansion under Obamacare is punishing them.

Florida already has health care safety net programs for those with the greatest need, including assistance for families with incomes up to 133% of the poverty line, and Florida KidCare to ensure no child goes without health care in Florida.

Things taxpayers don't mind paying for. Wonder why other states didn't follow Florida's example.

You Repubs won't elect Reagan for dog catcher if he was running today. As Gov. of CA he put in place a total gun ban and as President raised America's debt 186%. The MOST ever by any President including Obama. He was the first President ever to sell America's debt to outside nations. He granted amnesty to millions of illegals. How so you think all that would go over today with Repubs? hahahahahahahhahahahahahhaha!! !!!!!!!!

Netanyahu is leading Israel into an abyss
Netanyahu keeps behaving in a way that profoundly contradicts the values of the club of the Free World, of which he wants to be a valued member: His disregard for international law and individual human rights of Palestinians simply doesn’t square with the standards of the Free World.
Europe’s reaction to Netanyahu’s decision to build in area E-1 has been swift, but ended up being lighter than originally expected. France and Britain considered recalling their ambassadors from Israel, but haven’t done so at this point. Israel’s ambassadors in Europe were summoned by various governments to hear that Europe is no longer willing to put up with Israel's expansion of the occupation.

so you're saying.Israel building houseing for its people in their own country is bad..and terrorist fireing thousands of rockets at israel is good. Is that what you're being told to think now. I'm not supprized. You allways support those that will destroy you in the end.

the self righteousness of the myth creators.

it's one thing to be right, even they're not, but to act like they've presented something that we should all be impressed with when nothing has been presented is a malady that deserves nothing but scorn.

and anyway....as you know, i take my fair share of abuse with usually nothing more but humor in return. a rare moment of real emotion should not be reason to think that my personae will continue to act in that manner. i've shown that person respect before when it was deserved, and will do so again when it's prudent.

so we cool? i really have no choice now but to cool off. someone called me out.
