The only one in a position to make demands is President Obama… thank God the American people gave him a mandate when they came out and re-elected him in a landslide.

I am more than satisfied with his performance in office.

Mr. Obama is not the best of Presidents, but what he may lack in finesse he makes up for with his persistence.

He gets the job done.

Everything are fixed as concrete, those who makes 15 to 50 millions will make 15 to 50 millions and those who collects SS will pay more for health care insurance for a net loss of $45.00 net income. Gotta keep trying to reign the spending habit is the only remedy for going bankrupt. Eat less drive less whatever

To all you idiot right-wingers:

Check- and the –Mate

At some point you bigoted idiots are going to take hold to the fact that President Obama is just a brilliant political strategist who makes political chess moves months in advance to get victory after victory against imbeciles that continually bet against BLACK.

We win again...

Happy New Year!

Benghazi? He's as stupid and incompetent as they come.
I wouldn't associate myself with a liar like Obama in any way.
And the impeachment is just around the corner.
Will you include Benghazi in Black History Month?

O'Bysmal Won - America Lost.

What the fools on the left can't comprehend - is that this whole thing about taxing the rich was a distraction from the real problem of our on-going debt and spending with reckless abandon...

Our founders were a hell've a lot smarter than this inept glorified neophyte, and his O'bots.....

"A departure from principle becomes a precedent for a second; that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of society is reduced to mere automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering… And the fore horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression."-Thomas Jefferson

"We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt."- Thomas Jefferson

"Allow a government to decline paying its debts and you overthrow all public morality — you unhinge all the principles that preserve the limits of free constitutions.Nothing can more affect national prosperity than a constant and systematic attention to extinguish the present debt and to avoid as much as possibly the incurring of any new debt.-Alexander Hamilton

"When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic. Sell not liberty to purchase power." - Benjamin Franklin

'Nuff said!

No one can win with the government OVERSPENDING money it does not have.

Billions of dollars being spent just to service the DEBT.

It is a lose, lose situation, getting worse and worse, day after day.
