You lost the election.

Americans will know who pushed them over the cliff.

Obama has poor people skills. He has no salesmanship. he is a arrogant self centered asshole. I never went to college . However Ive got people skills. I can sell almost anything and make the buyer think he got the better deal. Obama cant do that. Teaching isnt the real world. And look at the miserable cantidates the Republicans ran against him. If the Republicans would have Picked Herman Cain for prez. and Mike Huckabee for the running mate they would have won by a landslide. Maybe the republicans didnt want to win? maby they know no matter what things are going to be worse. Better to have the opposition in power when things go south.

heres whats going on with the out of control wall street bunch during the fiscal emergency. http://blogs.reuters.com/felix-salmon/2011/05...
Billions of dollars to other countries in secret. But that's ok, obama "understands " how unpopular wall street is. He "gets it". Maybe that's why he got more money from wall street than any other candidate for potus ever. Don't bring up romney, obama got way more than that in 08. You add up what he got both elections, more than anyone.

No results?
If you had passed high school civics, you would have learned that it is up to Congress.
Now to review: Obama has a plan that the majority of Americans have approved- to extend the tax cuts to 98 percent of them and to start paying down the debt that was run up by the Bush administration.
Boner turned down that plan and proposed his own plan which not only failed, he failed to get a majority of his own party.
The Senate is ready to approve the Obama plan; Obama is ready to sign. The Congress will sign the bill if Boner puts it up to vote.
If Boner doesn't put it up to vote, we will all know exactly who pushed us over the cliff.
His foot dragging has cost many Americans a couple thousand dollars over the past few weeks. We won't be happy if it costs a few thousand more in taxes and more in market downturn.
I stopped reading at the deficit caused by the democrat congress during the bush terms.
If that's true obamas first tax plan was not deficit neutral as the deficit only increased, along with all the spending he promised to cut during his campaign. Remember how he said ending our involvment in the middle east would pay for healthcare? Oops.
If all the spending under bush didn't work, please explain how the same spending and more on top of it is any different. Not what you say its going to do, but how its any different.
"Bush spent too much so we need to spend just as much or more to fix that. See we need to print more money, and if you understood economics you would know that works when we do it but not when the scapegoat wing of our party does. It magically somehow different."

You really think Mike Huckabee would have HELPED a republican ticket?

I think youre off target with that one. Huckabee comes across as a religious nutjob, and not a very smart one

yes to me and you Huckabee comes across as a religious nut job. But to bible thumpers he is everything they could wish for. Im confident Huckabee would have delivered 100% of the south. The south is plumb chock full of religious nut jobs. and they come in all colors. And those who will take the effort to attend church will take the effort to vote. The black church goers would likely vote for a real black man as opposed to a half black. and they could feel good about voting for the religious nut job too.

I get your reasoning, i just dont agree with it.

Cain had multiple skeletons in his closet, and that is NOT the media's fault. Cain alone would have been a disaster.

Huckabee is simply insane. Remember, he said the newtown shootings were caused by God.

Mitt had a better chance!

Cain would have only been a disaster for the GOP and more specifically, the tea bag party.

I was disappointed that he did not make it through a few more months, he would have been the nail in the tea bag party... instead of just a staple...

Yes, I can see that you have "people skills" by how cleverly you resort to immature name calling. Most people find those kinds of skills VERY useful. He is the President of the United States of America, Who climbs to that position without being self assured? I think that's what you mean when you say arrogant. To me, he seems to be a down to earth family man who is genuinely concerned with the health of his country. Now, those are only opinions, mind you, not fact as you used in your post.

More of the same. A LOT more of the same. In fact, every negative aspect of the Bush Administration has come back with a vengeance in the presidency of Barack H. Obama. Everything the American people detested so strongly about Bush has not only characterized the presidency of his successor, it's gotten much worse. Don't believe me? The following is a list of 100 ways President Obama is just like President Bush. We might as well consider it a third Bush term on steroids, or call Mr. Obama "Bush 2.0." If you honestly didn't like Bush, you can't possibly justify liking Obama, not unless you ignore the facts: http://www.humblelibertarian.com/2011/08/bush...

Since you ain't payin' the bill, why do you give a rip? Herman Cain ripped Jesse(Jackass)JacksonJR a new one, told him to get off his dead ha ha, and actually work for a living. Something both Jackson's should do. Herman Cain actually started and worked a business. How about you, Barefootin' It?

Democrats were praying that Herman would win.

Even sending him campaign contribution.

God met them halfway and gave them draft dodger Romney.
