History will prove that the American people were the real losers on Election Day starting with the unemployment figures rising to over 10% during Obama the Job Killer's second term.
Makes sense

Not just on election day, but he won't be reelected come 2014. It will be his Waterloo. The turtle is too establishment. He's way too liberal for Kentucky. He compromised too much with Obammy.

Obama's second term will be like Hurricane Sandy. Many saw it coming but didn't think it would be that bad.

McConnel really sucks and so do both parties. The Dems. think that barrowing more money for another stimulus package will turn the economy around and the Republicans think that lowering taxes will do the trick. They're both idiotic ideas. Nobody is saying anything about our job killing free trade agreements. Nobody is saying anything about how we are still bringing over 1 million legal immigrants here per year, not to mention our undefended border that allows another half million illegal aliens to come here, steal jobs and depress wages and living conditions. Nobody is talking about any serious spending cuts. I can't see how anyone could think that these idiots or their parties are doing anything but a dog---t job of running this country.

They won the election, and will take all of the toys for their friends. The population has been exploited repeatedly by the threat of a cliff or grandma in a wheel chair
It may be time to remove the big government from the solution, they say that they want to help.
It just doesn't work out that way.

People want a government that WORKS, bonzo. Only ideological loons want to "take big government from the solution" (?) altogether.

And ideological loons just lost BIGTIME in the last election.

Moronic. No one said you could "spend your way out of debt." Debt isn't our problem, recovering from a massive recession is.

"Spend your way out of a recession" is economics, not ideology.

Go away, spud boy...

There's no sense arguing economics with someone who thinks our debt isn't a problem, especially one who thinks barrowing money for another stimulus plan is advisable. That's moronic, dog.

Big difference - nobody voted for Hurricane Sandys "coming" but millions of folks voted for President Obama's "coming". LOLL

Poor McConnell ended up caring more about his "one term president" goal than what was best for his country.

Only an economic illiterate like you would deny the functionality of Keynesian ecnoomics, or that stimulus spending is what's gotten us THIS far out of the recession.

You're truly stupid. Get f--ed.

This coming from the bugs bunny turtle.

Look, the Republicans lost for 2 main reasons.

1. There is no difference between Romney and Obama. Both are golablist and all they would do is try to sell the people on who would spend more faster than the other. Do to the actual lack difference, people (14M actually) started to see it and did not vote. Whats the point?

2. The treatment of the RNC towards their Libertarian wing and Ron Paul supporters. The RNC disenfranchised Ron Paul supporters and that entire wing of the party. The RNC even threatened Maine complete exclusion from the convention if they did not change their delegates alloted to Paul to Romney.

For those big time supproters of the R's, you know who you are. The ones that refuse to look and think for themselves. Listen to only False News and Rush Limbaugh, I leave you with this.

Sometimes you reap what you sew.

The establishment Republicans put up a complete flip flopping idiot in Romney who is nothing more than a progressive/gloablist with an R. He was weak and it showed. Combine that with disenfranchising your own base. And what do you get? You lost.

Now for the big time Democrats. You know who you are. The hanging out under the desk of Chris Matthews just waiting for crumbs and he gets tingles up his legs. The ones that refuse to think that the NDAA is against American civil liberties. Let me make this perfectly clear. You beat a lesser opponent. A person who should have never have been up there. Your guy if he was so good, why did he not push Paul Kirk (former DNC chairman and head of the Commission of Presidential Debates) to put in mathematical third parties into the debates? You scared brah?

It's no surprise that a far left wackjob would support Keynesian theory and the income redistribution that results. Keynesian theory doesn't work dog, but that's probably the only economic theory you can understand. You and your pea brained Keynesian theory should take a hike and let the thinking up to those better equipped.
