His approval means what exactly for his re-election bid? You idiots missed your chance in 2012 with your whole Benghazi obsession… maybe you can build a time machine and change things that way.
<quoted text>
I will always relish in that memory of the stunned looks by the right at that McCain rally on Election Night 2008 when they called the election for Obama… moreover, the 2012 Election Night reaction by Karl Rove was priceless… and then to see how devastated you tea-baggers were when Obama made the tea-baggers completely surrender over the government shutdown just sends a tingle up my leg, LOL.
I say that to say this: I can’t wait to wallow in your misery (once again) when we take back the House in 2014; (the same way we just took Virginia) and when Hillary wins in 2016.
You idiots have been wrong for the last 5 years and it feels so great to just laugh in your face and watch you be able to do nothing but take it… you fools are LOSERS, LOL!
And now 60 Minutes said their benghazi story was a lie. Extra funny that the teahadists hitched their wagon to it, out of sheer desperation, and end up bamboozled.

hahahahahahahahahaha

Instead of using gas and concentration camps, Supremacists are starving them Blacks by not hiring them, then arming folks to go after them Blacks as stray animals. Then, they put "stand your ground" laws on the book to legalize the genocide.
_ Black College student looking for help after his car broke down was chased and gun down by police for no reason
_ Black girl gun down in Detroit by home owner while looking for help after her car broke down
_ In their efforts to desensitize the public regarding the ongoing genocide, the supremacist Media act as an enabler. They are always quick to display picture of criminals when they happen to be Blacks; they don't often show picture of criminals from other ethnic groups.
_ God is laughing at this whole new holocaust game being played on "the land of the free."
_ Just like American Indians, I expect American Negroes to be pushed into some sort of segregated reservation, too. Maybe somewhere in Detroit or Chicago.....
Really? That would sure double my property value overnight, that's for sure.

Funny how the MSM loves to print those stories of innocent people getting shot and killed while skipping over those stories where guns saved innocent lives.

Violent crime and in particular--gun crime has been on the decrease since the mid 90's. Pretty proportional with states adopting CCW laws, Castle Doctrines and SYG laws.

Benghazi and all other fake scandals are GOP's attempt to bloody up Obama. From 2009, Issa said he was going to harass the Obama Administration. The sad part is that they could have chosen to use their energy to create job and improve the economy to help Americans in need instead of active sabotage of our government....

Government doesn't create jobs--the private sector does. All the government can do is make it more or less inviting for private businesses to do so. Thus far, OBummer is the most anti-business President I've seen in my lifetime.

You don't encourage businesses to create jobs by taxing the business owners, forcing them to pay fines or providing benefits not in their budget. You don't encourage businesses to create jobs by telling them they can't expand their staff because once they get past 50 employees, they fall under the brutality of Obama Care. You don't encourage businesses to create jobs by giving them more paperworks such as reporting to the IRS how much they are paying in medical benefits for each employee. You don't encourage businesses to create jobs when they are running around trying to keep employees under 29 hours a week so they don't have to be under Obama Care. You don't encourage businesses to create jobs by increasing the costs for their employees medical coverage. That's not how you create jobs, that's how you discourage the creation of new jobs.

So don't blame the Republicans. They've done nothing to hamper job creation--the Democrats are.

Creating jobs and improving the economy would expose them as pro-America, when we all know they're anti-Amerca.

Can you name at least 6 developed countries were your suggested principle works?

Remember, Bush/Cheney followed your recipe for 8 years and the US Economy crashed.

_ Government does create jobs. Tell the people of Virginia that government does not create jobs.
_Many companies like Halliburton, GE and others rely on contracts from government to hire sub-contractor companies

_Federal Government pays the salary of your representatives and their staff

_ Many of right-wingers don't want the Federal government to create jobs because big government is one of the few institutions which do not discriminate against minority groups. Studies show that private businesses tend to use racial and other types of discrimination in their hiring practice...

_ When somebody says government is too big, they mean too many Blacks have government jobs...

"Any government large enough to give you everything you want is large enough to take everything you have."

Government can hire private enterprise for work, but that's not job creation. Job creation in the sense jobs for profit is not something government does.

When we talk jobs, we are talking sellable work. For instance, you go to work everyday and operate a drill press. Your employer pays you 18 dollars per hour. Because of your work, he sells that work for 40 dollars per hour. it's called investment and sales.

You see, our financial system works like this: people work in private industry and create wealth. Government comes along and takes some of that wealth for services it provides to the public. In other words, the private industry supports the public industry.

This is why DumBama is a total failure. He is trying to recreate our economy so that the public sector supports the private. It just can't work because government does not create profit. Hence the failure of the so-called stimulus.

How much profit does your police department make? Your garbage man? Your postal carrier? Your road worker? They don't make any profit at all. They survive because the public pays them for their services.

The Bush administration had six out of eight good years financially. How many good years have we had under DumBama? Okay, how many months, weeks, days?

What killed the Bush economy was the housing collapse, and that had many a Democrat fingerprint on it. It started by giving lowlifes home loans that they could never get before. Under the Clinton administration, they instituted 0% down on home loans with little or no credit check to aid minorities in homes they couldn't afford. It snowballed from there, but that was the start of it. Republicans tried to ward it off, but they were met with too much resistance from Democrats:

Don't worry about the market. The market is not an indicator of our financial status. Look at the market today! The federal government is pumping billions into it and printing fake money. That's why the market is doing well and business is doing poorly. Market is not proportional to private industry. Look at the economy and not the market. If DumBama ever stops pumping in this money (also called quantitive easing) the market would collapse in less than two days. Like the housing bubble, it's all fake.

My "suggested principle" is one that this country has used for decades and centuries. It's the reason we are the wealthiest country in the world. Capitalism works. Bush and Cheney did not develop it.

Once government has control over your health, they have control over you. Commie Care is just one step in that direction. Government will be able to tell you what or if you can smoke. What or if you can drink. What kind of food you are or are not allowed to eat. How much you can weigh, how much you have to exercise and so on.
Government says no crack/cocaine, but from reading your thoughts I don't believe that government has been successful in keeping you away from your crack pipe...

The 'affordable care act' is just a lie.

It has nothing to do with making health care affordable.

It has nothing to do with the availability of more doctors & nurses to provide care for the millions more that will get free care.

It IS all about taking more money from working people and giving it to those without.......simply fulfilling the clearly stated "transformation of America" into the Marxist/Socialist plan the hussein firmly has been indoctorinated with from his youth and his hatred for America & a free society.

The only ones who can really afford the horrendous premiums, are the one on the public system (welfare) that the regular tax payers fund. They get theirs for free!! The rest of us pay our share and theirs. I ran the numbers on the gov website- estimated monthly premium for the "silver" plan was $1377. My present plan with better coverage and lower deductible/copays is $700. I guess he was right, it won't cost me "one dime" more.

There are some who believe obamamcare was DESIGNED to be a failure so that in 6-7 months, they can take full control and institute their ultimate goal of a ONE PAYER SYSTEM, aka complete takeover of the entire healthcare system and health insurance.

As devious as this administration is, that would not surprise me one little bit.In a few months, when I retire, it will only cost me $1,015 a month to keep my health insurance for me and my wife. I am not even going to ask about coverage through our benevolent Fuhrer's plan.

Even Facebook crashed!!Think of how many un-insurance AMERICANS tried to use this site/sites. I choose to wait a few weeks until things settled down a bit, this was before the site failed. Having been uninsured myself and with health issues I hope and believe Affordable Health Care will be better for most 85% of AMERICANS. Give IT time to work!!!!!!!!!!
