Feb 13, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: EDGE

At last night's State of the Union address, President Barack Obama made early references to a thriving middle class that could "get ahead no matter what you look like or who you love."

It's called effective leadership, and I applaud President Obama for it.

I give Obama credit for the victory in Maryland last November, and probably the victory in Minnesota, as well.

In the meantime, the non-libtards realize that Obama gets the blame rather than the credit.

Might I suggest you do yourself and everyone around you a favor, and simply end your miserable existence. If it's going to get as bad as you predict, you might need to make haste. Make yourself a martyr for all the other "whack-a-doodles" out there! I promise create a rememberence thread!

Because he is an insatiable insensitive drama queen. If he doesn't get his weekly 'facial' in the right manner he goes postal on topix and starts removing posts and threads. I heard he doesn't waste a drop.

You are agreeing with the very "liberals" you irrationally fear.

Most Americans have some sort of religious belief, and yet you say that Americans are self destructing.

Wouldn't that mean that religious people are leading the pack?

Try a little logic, please, instead of the silly hyperbole.

Oh, like you haven' t created numerous threads on the topic. Maybe if you had a life and actually had sex with a consenting adult,( family members excluded), your obsession with me would subside. Try asking "World's Bigot Liar's" wife, or old daughter. One of the hags might be good for a hummer!
