That's "Loser talk"... i am truly loving every minute of watching the suffering of unpatriotic tea-baggers like you who now want to talk semi-rationally... GFY... you lost after attacking President Obama relentlessly with the very lies and mischaracterizations that you continue with now, only in a softer tone. You lost, and no matter what you say you will continue to lose… and I will be right here to rub it in and laugh.
You talk with teh "code words" bull and that is what it is. You can talk on how nice the progressive movement is all you want, but there are a hefty amount of Americans who have seen a percentage of people get away with massive fraud, corruption, stealing, lowering the bar on any morals to insane levels thinking this is normal and so much more. If you want people to get paid then you must have total obedience to the system and not screw over your neighbor. Use the tools the government has provided along with the private side to get from point A to point B in a legitimate way. Not using it as a way to play the system and get paid for mediocrity and producing nothing in life. We will be poorer as a nation four years from now. And the nastiness of oppression will increase with it.

I know a few people who never vote, but said that they came out and voted for President Obama because of the hatred they saw over the last 4 years directed at him. One person in particular stated that the Joe Wilson “YOU LIE!” during the State of the Union a few years back is the moment he knew that he was going to vote for Obama… I said this before the election: the hate from the right will do more to help Obama win a 2nd term than hurt him and that is why I knew that Obama would win in another landslide.
If Romney had won then that would have meant that our nation would have digressed and hate a racist would have won. But these tea-bagging idiots didn’t get the message; but that good for us… the more they spew, the more elections we will easily win. 2014 will see the House back in Speaker Pelosi’s control… mark my words.
Let me see if I got this right: Obama was elected President TWICE, yet we are still a racist nation? And the vast majority who oppose Lord Obama are racist? So until Obama wins 100% of the vote, we will be treated to your pathetic, frantic "OMG! There's a racist behind every tree!" nonsense?

I know a few places where leader get elected with 90-100% of the vote. We call them third-world dictatorships. Their leaders have nice titles like "President for Life" and "Glorious Leader". Is that the only thing that would make you ObamaZombies happy? Maybe Obama could become Emperor or King?

I do not give a fig for Obama's race, religion or ethnic origin. Those things are not relevant and should be ignored when voting for any candidate. It's his politics I oppose. End of story. That you left-wing nutters keep going on & on about race only convinces people that you are unable to defend his policies on their merits alone. So please keep going on & on about race!

All we learned during the election is that Obama spins BS like a artist, so it'll take another four years failure to make the public realize he's basically an incompetent windbag. This has NOTHING to do with race. But if that's the only defense you have, by my guest. I find it amusing and revealing.

If it's morals that concerns you, you should consider residing in a theocracy and not a democracy. Being that may be you interest you really should trying living under an Ayatollah.

We can't get as a nation any poorer than we experienced in 2008, unsuspecting citizens through no fault of their own are out of Trillions because of Government neglecting to provide oversight of American markets from 2001 to 2009.

You are 4 years and a national bankruptcy late in sounding an alarm.

You generalize on morals. I just don't want to pay for people without them. But am forced to. And that is generalized. And blaming Bush is old. This has been along time coming and we have had warnings. We will have our own version of the Ayatollah in a political sense soon enough.

Doesn't surprise me you would sign on to such a idiotic statement intent on race baiting.
You guys still don't get why your ideas and politics recently again were thoroughly rejected in America.
America is fed up with disgruntled crusty old white guys and their divisive politics and until you guys come out of the 18th century you will continue to be rejected and excluded from the political debate. A cluster of you can't win a national election. That day has passed.
Maybe if you listened to somebody other than Jesse and the NAACP, you would know that 14 of the black caucus were under investigation at one time. It is easy to verify. Google it bro.

No, this has not been a long time in the makings, debt hasn't become the destructive force it's become in America until the Bush policies. Prior to Bush signing the Tax cuts in Feb 2001, America was running Budget Surpluses and reducing debt, which was 5.8 Trillion.

Deregulation of the markets, refusal to enforce standing laws and providing no over sight of the markets lead to the current economic and fiscal climate in America that also threatened the world's economy.

Everyone discussing politics hasn't forgotten the position America was in prior to George Bush going into the White House.

More specifically, the Republicans intentions has long been to rein ruin on America in hopes of having to de-fund America's safety net and social programs.

At every opportunity when there is a Republican sitting in the White House their agenda is to duplicate the force of destruction that Reagan created, Defense Spending increases, and citizen services decrease.

Tax cutting and program cutting in lieu of increased military spending and intrusion on citizens rights is not rocket science. That has always been the agenda and aim of the Republicans.

The Republicans were in power 12 years until 2007, they know the Baby Boomers were retiring, and did nothing in 12 years to try and correct much of what could have gone wrong with Social Security and Medicare primary because the wanted a catastrophe to take shape and by force eliminate those programs.

The Republicans had been committed to eliminating those programs for generations.

Oh, please, we've had Congressmen under investigation for everything from murder to sexual solicitation in public bathrooms, and that's just been in the last 4 years.

America has been moving left for half a century. Who are you kidding? Many cities and states have been affected and the people taxed heavily. There was a mass movement in the 1980's to fix social security when the boomers were younger and before they went on their final binge buying during the Clinton years. But the cries of hate came streaming down and they "fixed" it with a boatload of tax increases saying the system would be solvent for at least 75 years. By the time Bush became president the Boomers spending was slowing as they began to think more about retirement. Bush even tried to change the system in the middle of his administration but was rebuffed and frankly rightfully so. Eliminating those programs would be political suicide. The problem is those programs take away from other programs both parties like in a declining nation. Politicians live for the present not caring about the future. And Obama is doing the same thing forestalling the inevitable, making it worse and will help to bankrupt and impoverish tens of millions more people then he already has. Because of these sociopaths and psychopaths that people like you adore and love especially if there is a D next to their names, there are going to be a majority of boomers living week to week and near poverty. Anyone who has earned a living and worked their lives has been screwed. And the wails that will come from those who never have is just starting to form.
