<quoted text>Your predictions or pessimistic outlook mirror what we've been hearing on Fox News and the right-wing Media since Obama's election. The problem is that those predictions never come to fruition (Unemployment never hit double-digit and Romney did not win). To me, they sound more like fear or hysteria than anything else.
_We all know that during economic downturns there is always confusion and unrest (Greece, Brasil and the Middle East are good examples). The T-party insurrection, however, was not a spontaneous movement. During hard times, we'd expect to see poor folks who had lost their jobs and homes on the street, not well-to-do folks. Right-wing Media, in response to Obama's victory, meant to incite White Americans against the president with not so subtle bigoted and crude accusations like: Obama hates white people... He had a plan to pay reparation to Blacks for slavery... Joe The Plumber (he'll be spreading the wealth)... Rejection of his birth place (A Black man with no criminal records must be an alien)... Rejection of his Christian faith, making him a Muslim even though Reverend Wright's church was of Christian faith ... In other words, a great many people who did not approve of a Black president came out as T-partiers who wanted to claim their country back from the Negro... Trust me, a blind man can see what's been going on: Sabotage of the first Negro president by powerful supremacists, planned on inauguration day, in 2009, according to Newt Gingrich....
_ Sabotage and Embargo are powerful weapons; both deployed against the Obama Administration... He'd fail long time ago if God was not with him... You just watch! His enemies are falling one by one and we'll be just fine....
The first T party demonstration in this area was the same month the President took office. My daughters and I were shopping at a local mall and the traffic was all backed up. The signs they were holding and flashing at passing traffic had to do with TARP, which was the Shrub's program. Many seemed to think it was un-Constitutional.

The next one was in March and was quite a bit larger than the first. They were protesting TARP, pending cash for clunkers and taxpayer funded mortgage bailouts. The local paper had some pics and an article.

Birthers predate the Presidents election. Excerpts from Obama's own books helped to fuel that, even though they were often quoted out of context.

So did Joe the Plumber, to whom Obama did make a comment about "spreading the wealth" long before the primaries.

The flap about Reverend Wright and the church where he preaches started in July, 2008 and before the primaries, when his "God damned America" sermon went public, along with some equally vile clips.

Tying these things and more to the T party is projection and not based in fact. Making all the opponents of the President out to be racially motivated is also projection and not based in fact.

We have a two party system in this country. Look back at the Shrub's eight long years in office, and all the things that were said, written and reported about him. Look at some of the protests, the posters of him as Hitler in an SS hat, or being hung in effigy, or cartoons where he was caricatured as a monkey.

We were amused, or we snickered, but suddenly it's not so funny when our party is in office.

I don't watch FOX and don't know what they're saying. But I read articles on Reuters daily from a variety of sources. My pessimism is based on that and on the exit polling from this past Tuesdays elections across the country. Facts, not political hyperbole, and the facts aren't anything to be optimistic about.

Obama "misspoke" hundreds of times. I expect an American President not to be a lying scumbag flim-flam man. We all should expect that.
If unemployment was acurately counted it would be over 15%
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2013/...
720,000 leave workforce, Obama claims 200,000 jobs created, that still seems like a net loss of 520,000 workers out o the workforce.
You are correct about Death Panels not being in Obamacare...
They were written into the Stimulus Package.
Tea Partiers aren't liars, President Obama is.
Tea baggers are liars. What did that one teabagger idiot say about "a woman being raped won't get pregnant because the egg will reject the rape sperm"? Too bad his mom's egg didn't reject his dad's sperm.

Teddy Cruz, the Czar of the Teabaggers said "If my republican friends in the Senate had stood strong and voted to repeal ACA, we would have won." lmao

Lie. President Obama would have VETOED it and there was never hope of a 2/3 vote to override the VETO, but see, Teddy knows how stupid you FOXbots are. He knows you know nothing about the constitution and even less about procedure on the hill. Only 25% of FOXbots have college degrees so you just keep lapping up whatever they shove down your throat and keep letting them do all your thinking for you. At least you give the rest of us a chuckle.

Amusing post...but Space Cowboy didn't say Limbaugh was a hero. He said if a Kennedy did the exact same thing, that Kennedy would be a hero.

Sadly, he's right. Only a Kennedy could become such an icon as good 'ol Teddy after leaving poor old Mary Jo to die in his car.

Clinton got no flak because he supposedly 'didn't inhale'.

They tried to bury the Shrub for being a recovered alcoholic and went after Laura for an accident that killed her friend.

Obama liked to smoke and did blow, but that's okay.

Isn't hypocrisy fun?

The Kennedys fought for their country. All of them.

Limbaugh is a zero who used "anal sores" as a reason not to fight for his country during the Vietnam war.

Now, suddenly, the man and the party of Romney, Dick and Bush, who avoided fighting for their country, are the REAL AMERICAN PATRIOTS!!!!!!!!!!
bahahahahahahahahahahaahahahah ahahahahahah
This coming from the idiot Limbaugh who said publicly, "I hope President Obama and America fails." Real patriotic.

The only people he is a 'hero' to are the KKK, the Teabaggers, racists, bigots, uneducated mouth breathers and the restaurants he frequents to keep his fat ass fat and covered in anal sores.

Laura Bush killed a friend of hers in a car accident when she was drunk. She ran a stop sign in the MIDDLE of nowhere Texas. Ted Kennedy also cost someone their life but Ted spent the rest of his life doing public service and much of it was not made public. Laura has done nothing to right her wrong. She is not part of any charities now or while her lazy hubby was in office for 8 years. All they do now is socialize and bounce back and forth to their million dollar homes. The Kennedy's started the Special Olympics and ALL of them give back to countless charities. They are a good family and republicans hate that fact so they hang on to this 50 year old story for dear life because the Kennedy's are admired around the world and republicans can't stand that their only royal family, the Bush's, are liars, thieves and do-nothings.

It must be nice to be perfect like you people. Never screw up or make a life changing bad choice.

Let me explain. Cuccinelli took a steep drop in the polls when the government shut-down. The reason? The Main-Stream Media, the mouthpiece of the RICH and POWERFUL, layed the blame at the Republicans door. That EQUATES to tens of millions od dollars in pro-MaCauliffe propaganda.

When it started to become apparent that Obamacare was a disaster and the Republicans were right to fight for a delay, Cuccinelli made a comeback.

Of course, with FASCIST BILLIONARES secretly funding the "Libertarian" candidate, McAulliffe held on.

Dang! Have you ever considered a low dose of valium? Or maybe a not so low dose?

I'm a Democrat, you asshat, but not so thoroughly entrenched that I can't recognize the double standard.

You, on the other hand, are responding to the voices in your head, and those voices are full of rhetoric and misquotes. You'd better tell them to pipe down, or at least get their facts straight.

The Kennedy's weren't and aren't royalty. They were an extremely wealthy family, headed by a very ambitious patriarch who earned his wealth through illegal activity. Who bought and paid for an ambassadorship and was determined that one of his sons was going to be the President of the United States.

The family is dogged by tragedies and mishaps...and more than one has gotten away with some serious crimes. Why? Because they're Kennedy's. Power and money will get you out of nearly anything.

John-John died, along with his wife and sister in law...because no one tells a Kennedy that he isn't qualified to fly instrument only when he wants to do so. His own arrogance cost three lives.

Ted Kennedy used his power to put the kibosh on wind power, because he didn't want the view from his house littered with windmills out over the water.

We'll never know how JFK's term as President would have turned out, as he was tragically killed in Dallas. But we do know he was a cheating hound dog womanizer.

Camelot was an interesting chapter in American history, but it's over. Get a grip.

There are numerous Kennedy's in office now. I don't know what you think is "over" about them.
Bush was a drunken, coked out cheating hound dog womanizer. Laura gave him an ultimatum to quit or she would divorce him. He starting hearing Jesus talk to him and apparently Jesus told him to send 6,000 U.S. soldiers to their death as well as over 100,000 dead INNOCENT Iraqis and Afghans. Praise Jeebus.
He is and always will be worthless scum just like his sidekick, Dick.
Whilst the Kennedy's are held in VERY high regard throughout the country and the world. They are more studied now than they were 50 years ago. Not because they are wealthy but because they are good people who give back to their communities and their country. They don't just write checks but they participate in countless charity events. Ted used to go to public schools in DC every week and read to kids in low income areas and he demanded that it not be made public and it never was until after his death.
The Bushs? They clear brush, drink Margharitas and watch baseball. They are not productive members of society. Bush senior can't stand his son for those very reasons because Sr. is the polar opposite of his lazy, greedy son.

Its time to get REAL!!

It is IMPOSSIBLE to have any fair contest if the referees, judges, umpires, etc. SHOW FAVORTISM towards one contestant over another.

It amazes me how many on the left complain about talk radio and FOX News, when their influence pales in comparison to the NETWORKS, HOLLYWOOD, ACADEMIA, the PRINT MEDIA and REPORTER POOLS, all of which are left-wing propaganda outlets.

In this race, Cuccinelli took a HUGE HIT in the polls during the government shutdown because the MSM placed the blame for it SQUARELY at the feet of the Republicans, who were asking for a delay in the implementation of Obamacare. McAuliffe held a strong lead and Cuccinelli's funds dried-up.

Now, I ask you, IF the MSM had blamed Obama and the dems for the shut-down because Obamacare has MAJOR Flaws in it, would McAuliffe
have won?? A reasonable response would be no.

Gerrymandering by republican candidates across the country has guaranteed them to be re-elected every election cycle. It's being investigated now as maps of distorted districts grow more and more ridiculous. Why do your job and work with the other side when you know you don't have to?

Result?
9% approval rating for Congress.

Keep up the good work, clueless boy.
Republicans are their own worst enema, I mean enemy.
