Thankfully we "counted" those "little voices" on election day whose voices said NO to "anybody but ROmney", NO because they realized Ryan was not the most honest tool in the toolshed, NO when they decided they did not want to go backwards with the repubes and those "voices" voted for a second term president.

Perhaps ROmney, Rove, Fux and the other frightwing pundits should have been listening to those voices. LOLL

Pelosi delivers on every promise of votes she makes. Fan or not, If you think Boenher has shown the same level of Leadership as Speaker as Pelosi you're delusional.Oh wait, you are delusional.
I believe that even the republicannots would not put Pelosi and Boehner in the same leadership category - the latest debacle with Boehner illustrates that point.

Remember when repubs said tax cuts paid for themselves?

Now they hate the tax credits in fiscal cliff bill cause they cost money.

Go figure.

Hey repubs, you still think your Ryan is a "fiscal hawk" as touted in the campaign.

Check his votes before the campaign, now that you've digested and passed the koolaid you had to drink to believe his campaign persona.

Oh wait, he was probably just being a "team player" instead of "fiscal hawk" on yet another opportunity to show his "hawkishness".

You guys will spin yourselves into the ground chasing after your own propaganda.

The GOP has become hazardous to the welfare of the United States. It has become a renegade cabal whose sole purpose is to thwart, at any cost, the efforts of the administration to govern. Vote them out of existence.

If you REALLY care about our Children and our Grandchildren then you will quit your whining and pay down your Bush GOP war debt.
Otherwise, it's just phony outrage/concern.
Still blaming Bush? <LOL>

Taxes are rising, but it could have been more painful.

This is the MSM's way to soften the blow that you were lied to again, when Obama said only the top two percents taxes would go up.

Everyone from 20,000 per year up gets a tax increase. SUPRISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSE!

That was 11 trillion under Bush. And some of that, if not all, you supported.

We borrowed and paid for nothing under Dubya. Even the yearly Iraq cost was added as "Emergency Funding" every year cause repubs, and YOU, were okay with not acknowledging this as something that needed to be paid for.

The cost was too huge for you "fiscal hawks" to consider in a budget that was already causing us to borrow from China.

Yet you supported nation-building in Iraq.

Don't hate me for my facts, hate me cause I'm point out your hypocrisy and willingness to jam your head in the sand regarding repubs wrecking this country under Dubya.

McCain didn't even want to be seen with the guy, for fear it would ruin his campaign....as though Palin didn't, but thats a whole nother nut worth cracking.

The same repubs complaining about the tax credits given in the Bill are also complaining about allowing some credits to expire, like payroll.

Can you actually argue both sides of same argument?

Oh yeah you can, you're topix repugs.

You can blame the President for lack of leadership in the House of Reps, where a majority repug are led by a repub 'Leader'.

Losing VP Repub Candidate was probably being a "team player" again when he voted yes.

BShit! January 3rd, 2007, the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress:The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%

January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee.The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy?

If Mr. Obama wins re-election, and his budget projections prove accurate, the National Debt will top $20 trillion in 2016, the final year of his second term. That would mean the Debt increased by 87 percent, or $9.34 trillion, during his two terms.

Get a tow truck and have them help pull your head out.

Nope, not surprised.

Some tax credits were allowed to expire. That was one.

Some tax credits were extended.

Yet you argue both sides of the argument. You're against the extensions in the Bill, but you now sound like you wanted the payroll tax to be extension...but it wasn't paid for either.

I'm not surprised of your lack of understanding of your own argument.
