You are wrong. America is a right of center country. Media reporting from the exact center would appear to be to the left, but they are not, they are still in the center.<quoted text> The media is liberal so the playing field has never been level. Oscumma was certainly not a statesman because his party led the biggest smear campaign in history and it worked on the stupid. The lesson learned is the gimmes have outnumbered the productive. America has become a full fledged welfare state and one that will quickly approach the same financial cliff Greece has. The only way to save this country is to dismantle the govt. and start over.
The Republican started losing this election almost 4 years ago when they decided to obstruct almost anything the President wanted to do. This was true even when he compromised and incorporated Republican ideas like the state ran health insurance pools and the individual mandate. Both are Republican.
What about when the Republicans voted to extend the bush tax cuts with no problem then claimed the Payroll tax cut had to be paid for? Money for FEMA had to be "paid for" with spending cuts elsewhere.......until a RED state was involved.
Then look at the Republican financial plan: We will cut programs the primarilly benefit the lower and middle classes. But because we are all in this together we will cut taxes for those at the top forcing them to keep more money.
The BIG LIE: Increasing taxes for small business owners will result in less jobs.
First, if you only increase taxes at the $250K or $500K level you eliminate about 98% of all small business owners from a tax increase.
Second, that small business owner does not pay one dime in taxes for expenditures to support an employee. The only required is that employee has to bring in enough money to pay for himself (total cost burden).
Then there is immigration and self-deportation.
Then there is the war on women.
Then there are to calls to go to war in Iran and Syria (OK, Romney changed his mode, but it was way late in the game.)
