Not just the economy --- judicial appointments, debt limits all kinds of actions that were done routinely done in the past became impossible to do, because Republicans were more concerned with making Obama look bad than doing their jobs. So they were happy to gum up the works by any means possible.
"The filibuster has been a tool of the minority in the Senate to defeat legislation supported by the majority. Historically, it was used only rarely to defeat critical legislation or presidential appointments. Since Democrats gained a majority in the Senate in the post Bush-Cheney era, Republicans have used it more in one year than it was previously used in 50."

So you don't believe that the bulk of contention between the two 'sides' is a simple difference of philosophy as opposed to simply 'making Obama look bad'? That would mean using tactics & strategy agreeable & disagreeable to some because of the plain logic of opposing views, wouldn't it?
That would be parallel to those that call Obama's opposition "racists". People shouldn't forget that he is equally white, 50% to 50%.
So why did MORE than 90% of the black population vote for Obama? Why did he campaign ONLY as BLACK; NOT Afro-American or Black American? Some have argued that he didn't even campaign as an AMERICAN. He resisted wearing even an American flag pin or putting his hand over his heart during the Pledge of Allegiance OR the Star Spangled Banner. Then he bowed to other Heads-of-State & apologized for America's behavior. How would a pragmatic person NOT see bias in those FACTS?
What flavor is their Kool-Aid?

It's true that some people are very gullible. They fall for hoaxes and false information all the time, especially if it supports some prejudice they already have.

No, I don't believe that. Why then would you repeatedly use the filibuster to block non-controversial judicial appointments? Why would you routinely deny a President his staff appointments and leave senior positions in his administration unfilled for years?

Wrong again.... Just like Obama and the regime.

How vile was it for Regime spokes person Joshy to joke about Christians being killed in Egypt? Stupid dumbass MFers...
.
The White House’s deputy press secretary today downplayed Muslim attacks on Christians in Egypt, joking about the savagery  that has left at least six Christians dead.
.
Press secretary Josh Earnest was asked by Fox News’ correspondent, Ed Henry, if President Barack Obama has a “red line” beyond which he would act against Muslim attacks on Egyptian Christians.
.
“Well, I didn’t bring my red pen out with me today,” Earnest joked. Dumbass F-tard!!!!
.
After making his joke, Earnest said the administration is “outraged… and concerned” about the Muslim attacks on almost 100 churches, monasteries, orphanages and other marked Christian sites. Many Christians’ shops and homes have also been looted and burned by mobs.
.
But Earnest didn’t name or criticize the attackers, even though he did charge the military with perpetrating “violence… against peaceful protesters.”
.
They refuse to mention the Muslim Brotherhood by name… but they continue to attack the Egyptian military. Playing favorites is a basic Obama strategy… and thousands of innocent people continue to suffer the consequences.

Well I suppose you expect him to put on his Superman cape and fly over there to save your precious christian's from something that has been going on over there for centuries. Those people are radicals and have been killing each other over their religion's long before we were even a country. I got it, he'll just snap his finger and it will all stop and just go away, by your way of thinking.

Found a page out of the GOP-Teabagger Health Care Plan;
After the 11th child a redneck couple decided that was enough, as they could not afford a larger bed, so the husband went to the veterinarian and told him that he and his cousin didn't want to have any more children.
The vet told him about a vasectomy but it was very expensive.
"A cheaper alternative" said the vet, "Is to go home, get a cherry bomb,(fireworks are legal in redneck country) light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to your ear and count to ten."
The redneck said,"I may not be the smartest tool in the shed, but I don't see how that's going to work."
"Trust me" the vet said.
So the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count!
1?
2?
3?
4?
5?
At which point, he paused, placed the beer between his legs and continued counting with the other hand.
This procedure works in Texas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, West Virginia and the Carolina's.

“Ideologies aren't all that important. What's important is psychology. The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.
.
Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don't have a clue as to political reality. What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want. The democrat voter is basically dumb and lazy.
.
Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you're smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is.
After years of watching you idiots gulp down Fox News propaganda and emailed Tea Bagger newsletter scandals, of watching you elect the ex-head of the CIA and calling it "smaller government", of seeing you cattle with your Bibles in one hand and a flag in the other support corporate agendas, oil lobby bs and unfounded wars based on lies...yah. It's the Dems jumping through hoops. I know let's call a Dominionist agenda, started by oil billionaires "grassroots" or a man who thinks magic underwear keeps Satan out of his britches fit to run a country. What percentage of adults who vote Republican still believe Obama is the "antichrist"? You guys are a whining minority fringe group for a very good reason.

Not only that, but it is a common Christian belief that the person that brings peace to the middle east will be the "anti-Christ". Really, ALL of this boils down to the religious right being used to having their way for decades and then hearing them cry like babies when they have to spend one day being treated like they have treated others for years. What does abortion have to do with being a Republican? Nothing. What does gay marriage have to do with being a Republican? Nothing. You clowns aren't fooling anyone anymore.

To those who say "but hey, I'm a Republican and not a Christian"? You're not an oil billionaire either but you are stupid enough to blindly follow that agenda also.
