Actually, those of us with a brain have given up trying to remind those on the far right why we are where we are.
Driving in the wrong direction really fast for eight long years takes time to get back to the right path. Especially with a right wing controlled house of representatives who refuse to get back on the bus and get moving.
Every single issue that the extreme right wing has raised since President Obama was first elected were problems for the entirety of the eight years that the republicans controlled all three branches of government yet they did absolutely nothing about them.
Illegal immigration, border security, out of control government spending, health care costs, crime, voter fraud, national debt, housing markets, fraud, intrusive government, loss of property owners rights, defrauding the public trust and the list goes on and on and on...
...but, it would do no good trying to explain any of this to someone who refuses to accept reality so we simply taunt and tease those idiots with wit and wisdom and allow them to make fools of themselves on a public forum.
again thank you for your miltary service an hope the farm is doing good,ya know dem. had control of everything first two years of pres.obamas admi.,an they still control the sen.that hasn't past a budget for i don't know how long,it real doesn't matter thought where just to deep guy.we can talk all day about who to blame it just a waste of words for both of us,i,m just a little on the nervous side an hope you are,because i don't think they whoever they are, have are best intrust in mind could be wrong but i been around for longtime an it just don't feel right.sorry we don't see I to I on things ,I do hate people fighting over money all the time like we do now,never use to be so bad .Were getting sucked dry you shoud check out the fed. reserve an the seven banking family that control it,that control are gov. an money real eye opener.what kind of cattle ya got,i just remembered i got a nice that has cattle like about a dozen there called oreo or something like that,there black with white strip around the middle

Sequester and public opinion? Advantage Obama

With just days until the 'sequester' and its automatic spending cuts kicks in, President Obama seems to have the advantage with high poll ratings and a message seen as more compelling.

By Brad Knickerbocker | Christian Science Monitor –

A batch of recent headlines gives an indication of where things stand in the Obama-Republican face-off over sequestration and the automatic government spending cuts that could kick in next Friday.
“GOP losing sequester blame game”
“Democrats' Economic Narrative Still Trumps GOP's”
“Poll: President Obama approval highest since '09”
“President Obama’s popularity surges to three-year high”
“Congress Approval Holding Steady at 15 percent.”
RECOMMENDED: Sequester 101: What happens if $85 billion in cuts hit on March 1
Polls and pundits aren’t everything, of course. Most Americans this weekend likely are far more interested in Sunday night’s Oscar extravaganza.

And most would likely agree with Atlantic associate editor Matthew O'Brien when he writes – with as much truth as irony – on the magazine’s web site:“There is nothing more tedious in the world today than the sequester. The word itself sounds like a prescription sleeping aid.” There is, after all the gnashing of teeth over the “fiscal cliff” last month, a bit of “The Boy Who Cried Wolf” here for most people....(cont.)

You just described exactly what you and the far-right posters have done on these threads. And the majority of socks, spoofers, trolls, multiple accounts, grey boxes are among the right wingers.

You lied in other words.

This condition, is it one in which one needs to ingest something in order to get the "courage" to attack others who never said an unkind word to him or about him???? Good grief!
No worries. ;)

I like to keep it simple.

What?? Are you drinking by any chance?

I am neither "right wing" nor a "troll," and I have never had "multiple accounts," and I know what you're accusing me of, POS.

You lose, POS because you're a liar.

You're off topic again.

I think it's already too long post election to still be in denial and in a paranoiac state of being. On the other hand, with all of the unfavorable press from every mainstream publication about the degree and extent of bad policy, mathematically impossible policy, special interest policy, extremism and obstructionism being at the root of their loss, I can sympathize. Rather than attacking here, they should be reorganizing their efforts toward a more MODERATE Republican party of fiscal conservatism that might attract all kinds of folks who are totally turned off to the party right now. About the only way I see Republicans gaining ground is by pushing out the fringe elements who want to dictate to the rest of us their social agendas, their religious perspectives and their outright prejudices of divisiveness.
I'm not too encouraged by reading what is posted here that there's a prayer they'll get there anytime soon.
"Republican has become synonymous with loser and extremists and obstructionists."

May be YOUR opinion, but definitely not a true statement. "Defense mode"? Again, your opinion. This thread is "The President Has Failed Us" and we are here to to comment on these failures. If you want only positive comments about Obama, you should create a thread "The President Has Succeeded".

You and others obviously have no problem with Obama's policies and the direction he is leading us. That is fine. I am happy for you. I and others do not agree.

You continuously point out the election is over and the majority of Americans chose Obama. I am very aware of that fact. It certainly was not a land slide as 49% of Americans did NOT choose Obama. Bottom line is he did win. I accepted his win, but I do not have to be silent regarding his continued failures. That is why I came to this specific thread.
