Which should eliminate any doubt that Obama really is a Republican at heart.
It just proves that Obama doesn't believe in the form of government we have in this country.

It just proves that he and the demokrats are all Marxists at heart.

It just proves that Obama's plan is to consolidate his power at the federal level and then... concentration camps...

(does this sound anything like Pre world war 2 Germany?)

His tactics sure sound a lot like those utilised by good old Adolph as he rose to power in Germany to me.

Lol. Homer's right, Carol getting worse. You are on the wrong page.
Romney just hired the biggest moving target Obama could hope for. And you push this? If Romney intends to make Medicare an important part of his message over the next three months, he's going to lose.
Paul Ryan is No Deficit Hawk
Voted for the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy in 2001 and 2003 with no offsetting budget cuts.
Voted to triple the Defense budget with no offsetting budget cuts.
Voted for the insurance industries senior prescription drug benefit with no offsetting budget cuts.
Voted for two wars of choice with no offsetting budget cuts.
Voted six times to increase the Bush debt ceiling with no offsetting budget cuts.
Voted for the TARP bailout of Wall Street.
Voted for the Obama auto industry bailout....domestic auto industry is one of the largest employers in Wisconsin.
Get a clue Carol.
Sounds like he's nailed every plank on the GOP platform, now all they gotta do is lie about it for a few more months.

The Republicans already passed the Ryan plan.
Why does it take ten years to enact the Ryan Medicare plan? To give those approaching retirement to save more for retirement because it will cost them more money for health care.
Paul Rynan hands the wealthy money while making retirees pay more for healthcare.
When did the Senate pass it?

Like voting for Bush twice?
We successfully ended the Iraq War during Bush's second term. Kerry would have hightailed it out of there leaving thousands of Iraqis at the mercy of the insurgents and al Qaeda.

I've always said Obama should have thanked Bush for taking care of Saddam so Iraq didn't become his problem. Because it would have.

Bush tried to warn Congress about the impending housing market crisis numerous times.

Why shouldn't he have been voted back into office?

It was the Democrats who sat there in front of a Republican Congressional hearing back in 2004 and defended Fannie and Freddie like their very lives depended on it - or their pocketbooks.

Not fooling anyone.
Its obvious you're a right winger by the way you sit here and whine that the government isn't doing enough for you.
Instead you should be giving your resume another polishing and planning tomorrow's job hunting.
You mean -it is evident you are not a left winger in total denial of reality.

Unemployment above 8% for 40 months. Let's see how dropping the work requirement works to drop it. Allowing a huge increase in disability claims for those unemployed did not drop it.

Will Values Voters Turn out for Romney-Ryan?
I wonder whether Mitt Romney has failed to learn Karl Rove’s lesson. Rove ascribed George W. Bush’s defeat in the 2000 popular vote to under-motivation on the part of evangelicals and the religious right generally. Rove made up for that in 2004, heavily targeting churches in Bush’s re-election effort. That was the year of the “values voter.”
Paul Ryan checks the appropriate social-right boxes, but I wonder if his intensity is sufficient to mobilize the culture warriors — much as Robert Zoellick, ready though he may have been to sign onto Project for a New American Century regime-change manifestos, is insufficiently intense for neocon hawks.(Indeed, while Ryan is the golden boy of the neoconservatives for now, I suspect they quietly have doubts about him: not that he’s a crypto-realist, but clearly his primary interest is in domestic technocracy, not in foreign crusading.) If Romney loses, as I expect he will, the narrative for much of the right will be that Romney-Ryan was not “conservative” enough: not warlike enough on culture or foreign fronts to draw the bright moral lines that would supposedly lead to Reagan-like landslides.

That's a no-brainer, they just put State level values issues on the ballot. Turns the nuts out in droves and while they're in the booth they might as well vote for Romney/Ryan so that colored fella doesn't get another chance to ruin the country.

Don't fret about Ryan. A Romney campaign event this Sunday morning attracted 5,200 people. Sonic is the only one who believes this site is really conservative -LOL
No, y'all have just bought into the neocon redefinition of "conservative" which has nothing to do with fiscal responsibility and less government. The American Conservative specifically opposes such a redefinition.

But we're now adding jobs instead of bleeding 750 million a month. Can you do even simple math in the R'Money Reich?

Oh, for heaven's sakes...

Between 2001 and 2003? Right after 9/11?

Seriously? How many democrats voted the exact same way?

You really have to do better than this if you're trying to discredit Ryan.

TARP was repaid a long time ago.

Too bad the Democrats told a Republican Congressional hearing in 2004 that there was absolutely nothing wrong with Fannie and Freddie and came very close to calling the republican's attempt to rein in F&F nothing short of a witch hunt.

Rove and Blackwell already did the "Defense of Marriage" scam in Ohhio in 2004. Blackwell was subsequently rewarded as the black Judas he was...what are the going to do this year? I think the voter suppression was pretty much set in 2008, so there goes that swing state, huh?

Interesting how willing you are to throw your children and grandchildren under the bus, Gramps.
What will you say when your son jacks you up and asks 'why did you allow them to take our Medicare away??'
And Grampy will weep with guilt.
Talk about throwing people under the bus:

“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.”(quote from Obama, 2009)

Can you guess how many small companies are dropping employee coverage and how many larger companies are switching from HMOs and POSs to high deductable plans in 2013 and 2014.
