<quoted text> The difference was he ran on bipartisanship & so did the republicans which the republicans did an about face. They went from bipartisan talk to lets make Obama a1 term president & now even after they lost the election & the majority of americans voted for tax hikes on the top 2%, look who is blocking & holding the middle class hostage in opposition! These are common sense things that you know the true answer to, but you choose to shift the blame to try & make Obama look bad. Reality is america has moved past the days of the good ol boys & the party of one side dominance. This aint just an american thing. It's happening all over the world! Plenty of countries are trying their best to get under our skin & not just arab muslim ones. Russia, China,& a slew of others are pushing it to the limits. How long did ya'll think america would be able to tell countries how to run their sovereign nations before they felt it was time to point the finger & tell us it's time for regime change.? None of those countries wanted romney in office. What a coincidence! America feels the same way! Stop blaming Obama for the failed policies of the republicans past!
Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, etc. etc. all preferred Obama because he's a wimp-assed ditherer that they can push around.

Majority of Americans voted for tax hikes on 2%? I missed that question on the ballot. Majority of Americans kept the House under Republican majority leadership also.

The gloating comments were to be expected.
Republicans would have done the same if Romney had won.
It was the heightened vitriol. And the stuck on stupidER.

Yep, he's going to make a mess. And The GOP is going to help him along. Then, he and his liberal administration WILL OWN it.
But, they'll blame the Republicans for not compromising their core political principles just to accomodate their bad liberal policy.

Not that I agreed with all of the entitlement programs the Republicans wanted to cut, BUT, "ALOT" needs to be cut.

Remember when the liberals threw a hissy fit about Federal Funding for PBS being cut? If the liberals can't see that cutting funding for something as nonessential as PBS ... liberals don't understand budget and spending cuts. Liberals are like children. They throw tantrums, make threats and sling accusations when they don't get their way. I'm not a Republican, but I can't tolerate the Liberal mind. It's limited and lacks complex reasoning and common sense.

Romney ran on tax cuts.

Obama ran on tax increases for the top 2%.

Guess who won?? With 332 electoral votes??

Hint: it wan't Willard!!

Did you run out of your Alzheimers medication during the campaign??

You seem unaware of just what Obama ran on.

All polls show most Americans approve of tax increases on the very wealthy.

You probably don't hear any of that on FAUX.

Of course, they told you nitwits that Rmoney was a sure bet to win!!

FAUX appeals to the small minded and demented. You fit the bill.

You need to wake up.
Funny how when your side is repudiated TWICE in a row, you have the stupidity to tell others to wake up.

If you didn't live in the bubble of lies that is FAUX News, you might have a clue.

But you drank the kool-aid and watched as the American People rejected the lies and propaganda offered by FAUX.

Like the phony 'War on Christmas' tha only FAUX seems to be aware of!!

They may be the most watched cable news outlet, but it sure didn't help your side when election day came, did it??

Turns out the 3% of nitwits like you who rely on FAUX were suckered, just like the guys in high school fooled you when they said they wouldn't come in your mouth!!

Spending cuts? What spending cuts? Obama keeps talking about his "balanced approach" which include spending cuts. No one seems to know what he's talking about.
What you meant to say was;

"Nobody at FAUX seems to know what he's talking about".

Funny, you were among those who accused him of 'cutting'$700 Billion out of Medicare.

Remember??

Glad I could correct your foolish statement.

Your glib ignorance is amusing, but dangerous. Explains why you're poor.

When polled, 99.9% prefer that the other guy pays taxes.

California's Proposition 8? A majority voted to not allow the minority of kweers to marry. Now the courts will overturn the outcome based on the premise that a majority can't vote to restrict the rights of a minority. How is that different than the majority slacker have nots voting to tax the minority ambitious haves?

Besides, you haven't made any effort... just claims.

But from what I can see, you certainly were waiting for someone else to support your claims for you... even though they're wrong!

GOP Furious That Obama Is Acting Like He Won The Election

""On Thursday, Republicans immediately rejected the president’s opening offer to resolve the so-called “fiscal cliff” issue.

According to Republicans who leaked the bid, President Obama would cut $4 trillion from the deficit, including $400 billion in Medicare savings and $1.6 trillion in revenue from first ending Bush tax breaks on the top earners, capital gains and dividends, and then tax reform. He also called for action to create jobs in payroll tax cuts, unemployment benefit extensions and $50 billion in infrastructure spending and a new mortgage-refinancing program.

Basically the president is asking for exactly what he campaigned on.""

Gramps when will you ever come to grips with reality? Obama won because he was the better candidate. The days of republican wine and roses are over the reality is unless republicans run a viable candidate not a rich mans puppet they will never win.That is the facts.
Looks like Tax and Spend is back!

I say let all the Bush/Obama tax cuts expire and go back to the overtaxation of the Clinton Era. China and India say they have room for more investment. Besides, we all know that the Bush tax cuts were all for the rich folks with the poor unwashed working class getting minminal relief.

BTW, the Dems gained in both the Senate and House.

And same sex marriage is the new Civil Rights issue.

The Mormons came down from Utah and spent a fortune to defeat the gay marriage bill. Explains why Rmoney did so poorly there.

But oit's not a voting issue. It's a Civil Rights issue. The Constitution does not allow referendums on Civil Rights.

You didn't get to vote on women voting. Ypu didn't get to vote on desegregating the military. You didn't get to vote on Civil Rights for minorities.

Same sex marriage is legal in CT, your home state. Why don't you vote with your feet and leave??

Meanwhile, other states have approved gay marriage. It is now legal in 9 states!! A good start.

The Supremes will find Gay Marriage Constitutional.

End of story.

Figures an old coot like you would still be viewing it through 1950's lenses.
