You're a master at dodging, spinning and obfuscating.
You look like you have losing down pat.

You should run as a Republican for POTUS.

Do you have your funding set up?

Just checking back on Obama and Christie and their noreaster liberal love fest.
How is the weather in New England lately?
Cold last night. Hey you noreaster libs without power. How is Obama doing for you? You elected him and he cares for yall. He said so. I notice on TV how angry you all seem. Your president is busy with a pickup bball game. Bush handled Katrina faster than Obama is helping you. Getting cold out there? Well your prezideezie has your back. It'll warm by April. Maybe the power will be back then.'Forward'
Hell, they will find a way to blame Bush for it.

I love that you didn't get that the misspelling of masturbating was a play on words. But I'm not shocked that you would compare misspelling a word with changing what someone posted.
Raise the debt ceiling? Wait, didn't congress do that already? Did the overspending stop? Yeah, shake your head some more.
The best thing that could happen to this country is to go over the fiscal cliff.
Ah...a "play on words," was it? OK, if you say so. Nor did I compare "misspelling a word with changing what someone posted." But hey, let's not worry about trivial matters of fact, huh?:)

Why would spending stop because the debt ceiling was raised? Why would you "stop" spending increases at all, especially during recovery from a recession? Why can't you understand that a) Congress (i.e., reTHUGlicans in the House) didn't want to raise the ceiling, cowboyed the issue, and ended up damaging our bond rating? Why can't you deal with the fact that it's YOUR party that's led us to the fiscal cliff, and that going over it would damage our recovery, probably pushing us back into recession?

Oh, right...that's what your party WANTS, isn't it? Too late now to elect Romney though, that's kinda tough...:)

France's 'Toughest' Budget: Super Tax on the Super Rich
New budget released Friday has 75% tax on millionaires, still commits to spending cuts / September 28, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/cn6abv8
France unveiled on Friday what it describes as its toughest budget ever, which includes a 75% tax on millionaires in an attempt to tackle its deficit.
"It's a combat budget to fight against a debt that only continues to increase and that rests on the shoulders of French taxpayers and generations to come," Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said Friday morning
"We're asking the wealthiest taxpayers to make an effort," Ayrault added after a cabinet meeting. "As for companies, we're bringing back justice. CAC-40 firms pay less taxes than small companies…now we're asking them to contribute."

EXACTLY what we need here. No way would 75% be too much, these fat slugs have gotten away with hoarding their funds for FAR too long.

Way to go, French Socialists! Salut!

It is clear, the insane are in charge:
Bloomberg bans food donations to homeless shelters…
NOVEMBER 9, 2012
Following the destruction left by Hurricane Sandy, millions of New Yorkers have been left without a roof over their head and food in their stomach. Despite the efforts by many to donate food and water, their donations aren’t all being accepted.
New York City was one of the hardest hit areas during Hurricane Sandy, and the effort to get the city back on track has been nonstop. Despite his full attention being put on the clean up effort, Mayor Michael Bloomberg is continuing his previous ban on all food donations to homeless shelters for victims of the hurricane. According to MSM Now, Bloomberg is banning the food “because the city can’t properly assess salt, fat and fiber in donated food and thereby ensure starving people are getting the optimal levels of nutrition.”
http://revolutionradio.org/...
You made your first mistake when you believed a Rightie wack-site. Those people lie as default; you have to try to get reliable information, especially when they make outrageous claims like "Bloomberg's banning food donations!" or "Non-union electrical workers turned away!"

ONE crew from Alabama confused about working conditions on paperwork they saw...

Bloomberg ban was on donations to homeless shelters last March...

Why does the Right LIE so much? Or are you all really this dumb?

Once again, IM NOT A REPUBLICAN ! Damn liberals are hard headed!
You cut spending to keep from increasing the debt, and having to raise the debt ceiling over and over and over.
Your children are going to have to live with and deal with all of this someday.

And once again, I'm not a Bush fan. But you don't care about that. If you can use an untruth to try making a point, you'll jump at the opportunity.

Of course you aren't. Until the Republicans purge their party of the birther nut frightwing fringe, they will continue to be irrelevent. Time for you bagger nuts to start your own third party. Then you can come in third in the next election.
