If you were a satirist, you'd be funny. Sadly, I'm pretty sure you're serious.

Listen Bluebeard, you ought to know by now that I am not "you lefties".
I don't think of you as "you righties". You have a special place in my dumpster.

There are Obama detractors who accuse him of overstepping his powers, yet blame him for not solving every problem all by himself. This allows them to smear Obama from both directions. Fortunately they constitute a minority.

In my opinion, the anti-Obama sentiment has less to do with policy, and more to do with "other reasons".

Dems preserve US-Mexico food stamp 'partnership,' while USDA prepares for meat inspector furloughs


As the administration prepares to furlough meat inspectors because of the sequester, it continues to pursue a "partnership" with the Mexican government to "raise awareness" about food stamps. When a top Senate Republican proposed cutting off funds for that program last week, Democrats on the Budget Committee shot it down.

Hurry little puffer, you might miss one. Poor baby.

Fifty-six percent say Obama is not doing enough to cooperate with the Republicans in Congress. Not great, but less than seven in ten who feel that the Republicans are not doing enough to cooperate with Obama.

Only 31% say they approve of how the president's handling the budget and fiscal policy. Again, nothing to brag about but higher than the 19% who give the Republicans in Congress a thumbs up on the issue. And Americans are divided on whether the White House or congressional Republicans has the better budget and fiscal policies.

Do you remember telling us that Romney had a seven point lead in the polls the day before election, Dumbo?

Is there any wonder why there is not a single human being in Topix that believes anything you or your aliases (your current aliases) say?

PS: Dumbo... Obama's popularity still leads the Republican party popularity and your tea party is at the bottom of the pile.

Say hello to Au Dumbo for me!

I heard it was 7 million losing their jobs, they are closing nursing homes and grade schools will no longer feed the children lunch. On the bright side, the million dollars to study why some lesbian women are overweight, the shrimp treadmills and the mechanical squirrel project to scare snakes are all safe.
The part I don't understand is how the Democrats, who control the Senate and the White House, voted for sequester and why did Obama sign it? Odd.
Sequester was the resolve to the Republicans holding America's Debt Rating Hostage.

The Republicans were prepared to default on America's financial Obligations for spending which incurred under George Bush and the last Republican Majority. Budget Control Act signed in early 2011. It was right before Boehner proclaimed the Budget Control Act which required spending cuts in excess of the amount of raising the credit limit giving Boehner 98% of the cuts he wanted.

Had this poll factored in or reflected the 22% approval rating of Congressional Republicans?

Why do you continue to perpetuate this lie. We have plenty of money for our obligations and to pay our bills. Now paying people to set on their butts or to spend money on golf outings, not so much.

Right now some polls show that the disapproval rating is 56% for Republicans and 48% for Democrats. More do disapprove of the Republicans, but considering the media shades every evil to be the republicans fault it is not really enough difference in scope to say either one is doing their job.

Proof you don't know the difference between leading by appealing to the American people, and campaigning for office. He's trying to do his job, while the GOPee tries to sabotage his efforts and undermine and destroy our economy and our nation.

Why can't we just declare Republicans traitors and start hanging them?:)

Where did you learn math....... there's a marketable difference in the measurements contained in your post....... The Republicans are flat out rejected by more than half of the population sampled for that poll, the democrats considerably less so than their counter mates.

this indicates that for some of you on the right, taking rejection is no your forte'

How is that not enough in scope by a reasonable mind?
