Not to worry, they start with that famous 47%, so that means they only gotta get 4 more percent. That's easy, blacks, gays, lebsians, homos, ponytailed ex hippies, college professors, teachers, union workers, govt workers, tree huggers, kook koast libs, women with war is not the answer bumper stickers, kids too young to remember carter, greenies, warmers, illegals abortionists, capital punishment opponents, vegetarians, vagatarians, queers, gap lappers, pickle smoochers, they can't lose....it don't even matter if its Hillary or Joe B or for that matter, Michelle or Oprah.

I think it will be harder to get that 47% next time, because the President didn't give them enough. Even if he tells them it is the ?Republicans standing in his way, they won't be motivated to go vote for Uncle Joe. I don't thin Hillary can pull it off. She was much better liked in 2008, and she was not nominated. The Gimee, gimmee, gimmee people will be looking for someone they think can be elected giving Democrats that elusive third term. I am probably wrong, because I don't want another "first."

She's right, Obama turned out to be a republican.

I would still vote for him again, if possible over ANY teabagger.

Big deal.

Guess who pays for that?

Darn, the same people who did before, the taxpayer.

Teabaggers like yourself keep bring that up like it means something.

Obamacare or ANY teabagger proposal does NOTHING to bring down the cost of medical care.

Teabaggers whine all the time about taxes, yet remain silent on the rising cost of medical care.

They hate taxes but applaud medical industry profit.

If that what was the locomotive when this nation was building no matter what its flaws, we'd be a semi educated nearly impoverished diverse haiti. A balkanized nation with every male carrying a gun for survival and principles. Oh we are heading there.

your opinion of that 47% is higher than mine. My prediction is, they will vote for the Dem, no matter what color or sex he or she ends up being. If Hillary runs, and chooses either Michelle or Oprah as her running mate, you can make your flight reservations to some other country, as the white, republican, taxpayer will be like the dinosaur....once feared and respected, but relegated to 3rd class citizens by the folks mentioned in my earlier post. At least for a few years, until the Mexicans take over.2190

Dumbo you dingus - there's a big difference between "reportedly" and an actual release from the White House saying this, but how would you know?

As to your other BS claim regarding prisoners and Obamacare, nothing even popped up on your Foxnews.com website - where you getting this pipedream from moron?

There are very few nontaxpayers and most of the nontaxpayers are very wealthy.

The title of this thread is azz backwards.

It's the Rethugs that have an uphill battle to reach 270 - not the Dems.

Most Democrats do not Cher her view. But your desperation is noted.
