You are such a predictable and typical liberal. You all always post these polls as if the election is over and you won. You are always trying to establish a narrative of how loved your ideas and candidates are. There have been literally dozens of polls cited in the last two years that suggested, because that is all a poll really is, that your candidates were going to win. The funny thing is that when you fast forward to today, you have lost the house, lost a bunch of Governorships and state houses that were traditionally blue, and your incompetent hate pedaler Oblamer is going to lose and lose big. I just love the posting of liberals in the morning, it smells like stupidity!

Very few hard working americans have enough money to live out there lives from savings alone, not everybody has the lavish lifestyle of a house painter, futhermore I have known some very wealthy buisness men who are now broke and on disability, one inperticular was a heating and cooling man who had a long streak of wealth, got a devorce and had to pay halk of what he was worth to the ex and refinance to the assested value and start over, his health failed along with his buisness as more and more contracters where fighting for bids in this depressed market, he lost his health insurance and his buisness and lost everything he spent his life building and it can happen to you also so dont crow to loud.

The working man's president! What planet are you on. The mans never worked a day in his life. He may have studied law but he was never a lawyer he was the same thing as Al Sharpton. He taught people how to live off the government. He also taught social justice which is complete nonsense this country is not based on equality it is based on everyone having the right to do what they want as long as its within the law.

Here is a classic example of what a bunch of thugs your beloved union people are, and to what lengths they will go to make their point. Detroit is struggling on the brink of receivership because of the long term commitments to pensions and benefits of the more then 5300 retired city employees getting them, with less then 2500 employees contributing to the broken system. So the city proposes to cut jobs because they are unable to get the unions to go along with the necessary changes to their contracts with the police and fire unions. The very day that the cuts were announced, there was an immediate spike in vacant buildings catching fire all over the city, especially in the neighborhoods where the services are the weakest, and they continue. Guess who steps up to point out how vulnerable the city is to fires and that the way to make them stop is to give the fire unions what they demand? The union of course!

republicans would rather support corporations instead of organized groups of workers working to secure a fair work environment A.K.A a union, I ask them to walk the walk as well. Give up every benefit and right that you use that unions are responsible for.

It's so easy to tell when you have one of these idiot liberals on the ropes because they resort to repeating cut and paste lies over and over again. Laws are not enacted by unions fool, they are part of a process in state and the federal legislature, and then signed into law by the governor or the president. If all of the things you claim were enacted by the unions, then it would be reasonable to conclude that the democrats are as entangled with special interests as the republicans are accused of being. Your argument is that corporations are evil special interests, when unions are exactly the same thing and worse.

Obama and the DNC is screwing you and you seem to like it. SEIU isn't going to the coronation of the messiah and many other union interests are withholding their money as well. North Carolina is a Right to Work State. Thats a nice stick in your eye. Oblamer screwed you all in Wisconsin. Left you out to dry. The most you got out of him was a tweet. He's a piece of shit, your a piece of shit, unions suck and are screwing the working man and the taxpayers.

Pennsylvania and by nine points in Ohio.

Meanwhile, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll of a dozen swing states also showed Obama in the lead. The president topped his rival by a 50 percent to 42 percent margin in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Both polls showed Obama getting a lift from women, younger voters, African-Americans and Hispanics.

The NBC/WSJ poll also found that Obama’s attacks on Romney’s tenure at the private equity firm Bain Capital may be working.

According to the poll, Romney’s favorability rating has dropped to 30 percent in the 12 swing states from 36 percent a month ago, while his unfavorable rating rose to 41 percent from 36 percent.

The poll also found that voters’ opinions of Romney’s business background are more unfavorable in the battleground states than they are nationally.

.I dont understand this poll, I watched this video and thats why I like him.

The President, the Vice President, the members of Congress have a medical plan that meets their needs in full, and whenever senators and representatives catch a little cold, the Capitol physician will see them immediately, treat them promptly, fill a prescription on the spot. We do not get a bill even if we ask for it, and when do you think was the last time a member of Congress asked for a bill from the Federal Government? And I say again, as I have before, if health insurance is good enough for the President, the Vice President, the Congress of the United States, then it's good enough for you and every family in America.

----------

The serious issue before us tonight is the cause for which the Democratic Party has stood in its finest hours, the cause that keeps our Party young and makes it, in the second century of its age, the largest political Party in this republic and the longest lasting political Party on this planet.

Our cause has been, since the days of Thomas Jefferson, the cause of the common man and the common woman.

Our commitment has been, since the days of Andrew Jackson, to all those he called "the humble members of society -- the farmers, mechanics, and laborers." On this foundation we have defined our values, refined our policies, and refreshed our faith.

Closing out another 35K month "painting houses" Superdick. Closing in on 80K in the last eight weeks. Pretty stupid of me, huh? Even created two new jobs in the same time frame. How many jobs has Superdick created? You are obviously a listener to Tom Hartman and his liberal history revisions. It's so easy to dupe liberals with rewritten history narratives because none of them know any of it before the day they reached adulthood. Thomas Jefferson was a hater of big government and would have been the first patriot to put a lead ball in your head for the politics you progressive communists espouse. He was also one of the first to start the nasty partisanship we see played to this very day. Do you think Joe Biden would commission a book to be written that disparages and details the failures of Oblamer while he is still his Vice President?
