Bring Obama Back!

#1 Oct 17, 2013
There is no doubt (as all the polls have shown) that the American people hold the tea-bagging republicans responsible for all the bad things that has happened in Washington. The beautiful thing about this whole unnecessary episode is that the President and OBAMACARE came away better than before the right-winger shutdown the government and almost pushed our economy back over the edge of total collapse.

President Obama brought about the complete surrender of the tea-bagging republican Party as he has now all but caused the complete implosion of the GOP. It’s over… 2014 will bring back Speaker Pelosi and the Democratic Party’s complete control of the government… as it should be.

I have been giddy all day as I got to rub it in the faces of co-workers and listen to and call into right-wing radio.

COMPLETE SURRENDER was the only thing President Obama was going to accept… and he got it from the tea-bagging GOP, LOL!

Shattered faith in Government? From the Obama's? From the Clinton's? You are kidding, you have to be, kidding. Clinton lied, but once in awhile told the truth. We can't get the truth out of Obama, not ever. His whole life is a fairy tale.

Let's pretend the people did hold the Taxed Enough Already people responsible for all the bad things that happen. Guess what? We know what we stand for. We know what we want to do for the Country. We really don't care what the left wing lunatics think, never have, never will.

Congress and the WhiteHouse has given us a delay on #2bSEQUESTRATION, the next time National Parks close because he doesn't get his way, Reid will need to keep the Senate closed.
I expect the WhiteHouse to appoint the next SuperCommittee. Just new faces for the RhINOs to rubber stamp.

I usually ignore you… I don’t even read your ignorant posts; but I am so happy right now that I am going to (just this one time) respond to your stupidity:

STFU you loser… you lost again; we won and the President gets to take a victory lap stepping on your ugly face in the process, LOL! We’re smart and you guys are dumb; that is why we keep kicking you fat asses. Just face facts; President Obama wasn’t going to allow Osama bin Laden to win… so who the Hell do you think you unpatriotic fools are to the guy who single-handedly found and killed Osama bin Laden?
It feels so great to just sit back knowing that we just keep winning against stupid right-wing tea-bagging idiots like you.

Okay, I happily said my peace… you are now back on the ignored list, you stupid idiot, LOL!

Yea, we know exactly what you stand for.

Destroying the country because you hate universal health care.

A republican plan put into effect.

Destroying everyone's 401K by not paying the bills.

Bunch of freakin morons you are!

It's funny how the GOP TEA RINO Birthers want to legislate the tenets of the Bible when it comes to gay marriage and abortion.....

...but when it comes to helping the needy and the poor all of a sudden government has no place in legislating the bible. It's no wonder the GOP TEA are running around with their heads cut-off.

Actually you don't know what you stand for.

You worked for smaller government and shut it down....but blame Obama for it.

You say you are "Taxed Enough Already"....but Cruz got paid during the shutdown for doing nothing and still benefits from taxpayer paid government health insurance.

You are not "Taxed Enough Already". You are Terrorist European Americans still angry that a black man is President.

Help the needy what? We have more people on Food stamps, and welfare then ever in our history. About the only thing we haven't given them is a car, and that is probably next. We have created millions of people who do nothing, while the millions of workers go off to work every day to provide for them.

What the Democrats are trying to do is make the productive people in America so disgusted they won't go to the polls in 2014. Please don't let them do that, we must try to save the Union even if you have to hold your nose, and vote out all the Democrats.

Right...like I said, "It's funny how the GOP TEA RINO Birthers want to legislate the tenets of the Bible when it comes to gay marriage and abortion.....

...but when it comes to helping the needy and the poor all of a sudden government has no place in legislating the bible. It's no wonder the GOP TEA are running around with their heads cut-off."

You speak English? No one believes your "We want smaller government" lies.

I hope the poor, and the pitiful are saving some money for a rainy day. This crap the Democrats forced on the Republicans expires in January, and Cruz says he will consider shutting down the Government again. God Bless him, he is the only one with morals, and principles.

It's obvious you don't follow the bible along with the rest of the teabaggers. Cruz is a circus puppet and the Krotch brother are pulling the strings.

Pfft. You whiners who don't have health insurance need to pay up. Us insured people are tired of footing the bill for you uninsured. This isn't a socialist country.
