Obama has made it over every hurdle you losers have thrown his way.
Proof is the virulent unending racist hatred shown by you nitwits on here.
You're so filled with anger and hatred you spent Christmas Day on TOPIX, along with Gunner and Ed and Nobraina.
Proof positive of what sort of social misfits you are. Even your family rejects you.
You Whine about a phony "War on Christmas", then completely ignore the holiest day on the Christian calendar by spending it posting on TOPIX with your loser cyber friends!!
So make believe hubby and make believe daughter don't count on Christmas??
Or did they tell you to go away and let them enjoy Christmas??

You forgot to post the other side of the argument in the Washington Post.
White House Budget Director says the credit goes to Obama for raising taxes in the January "fiscal cliff" year.
Republicans say the credit goes to the spending cuts which were the result of the 2011 deal that imposed discretionary spending caps and budget sequesters.
The 2013 deficit figure [$17.1 trillion] would have been worse if the government hadn’t borrowed nearly $40 billion from the Social Security trust funds.
So the government borrowing $40 billion from SS trust funds so the 2013 deficit figure wouldn't have been worse is a good thing?
As to the Cato article: "Usually this year [2009] would be assigned to the outgoing president because the new president comes in part way during the year and typically does not make substantial changes to the current-year budget. But Obama took steps to immediately boost spending in 2009, including pushing through the giant stimulus bill.
In Bush’s last budget, he proposed that 2009 spending be $177 billion above the 2008 level, but the actual increase ended up being a massive $386 billion. So you can see that Obama and Congress were mainly responsible for the huge spending leap in 2009, not Bush.
(Also, spending has steadily increased under every president for the past five or six decades and, if you look at the little chart, from 2003 to 2007, spending only increased by 0.31 trillion -- and that was after 9/11, two wars and the housing market collapse.
When Democrats took over Congress and the purse strings in 2007, spending increased quite a bit more rapidly until January 2011 when Republicans took back the House.)
Problem with being a troll is we know what you are going to say by reading Fox.

Lacking moderation you become shrill!

It would be wonderful if you became Topix mute.

How perfectly stupid of you. Not a simple misspell, a completely different word. I believe the 'prostate' guy was off by 1 letter out of 8. You missed 2 out of 4.

Aren't you the nasty one that hounded someone about incorrect spelling of 'prostate' along with your Teabag (he's the top) buddy Emaam??

I'm not claiming that the birther issue wasn't brought up during the primaries. I am claiming that no one associated with the Hillary campaign had anything to do with it. So far, not one of you has been able to provide any proof to the contrary.

Hmmm, Nuc seems to be in constant gender re-assignment here. Last I heard this person was female. Really makes no diff.
Nuc also wants to claim to be female after posting "Vaginas have hard time with facts, all they are mucus secretors" -don't know a female who would post that.
Talking thru your ass does you no honor.

You're the one who proudly proclaimed your vagin a.

Now you get all antsy when you're asked why a woman would call someone a woman as a slur.

Squirm, you nasty little wretch.

USAsince is aware of this and when confronted with her birther posts during the primaries acknowledged that was his/her standing.
The only way she/he could have become a birther during the primaries is if they received one of the Hilary Campaign emails.
Really, nothing to see here
I never said I was a birther in 2007. You picked up the 2007 date from Breitbart.

People bringing up the birth certificate issue in 2008 are a bit different than those still posting it in late 2013.

Birfoons now are still betting on the 2010 Super Bowl, and losing :-)

You're funny. I've been successfully investing for 20 years and I'm not yet 50. I had a very good year in the market.
What is your involvement in the active markets, how often do you buy and sell stocks??
You cherry pick polls, like Shiller. Are you aware he's been bearish (do you now what that means?) for most of this Bull run in the markets?? Meaning if you followed Robert Schiller, you'd have missed out on about 75% of market gains since Obama became President.
Do you even know what a p/e is?? Or how it is not considered an important thing in today's market? What other economic indicators are you aware of, and what do they indicate? Do you know th ep/e for Google? Facebook? Amazon?
Markets are about visions of the future. And right now, the investing crowd sees a decent future, if not a great one.
Your constantly wishing for a collapse of the stock market indicates you are rooting against America. You'll be happy to see the economy tank.
Why is that?? Why do you hate America??
Only you liars who make any claims about their race, education, money or their military service are liars nutsack, given you won't and can't prove a damn thing you diabetic piece of shit......

That the American People will have health insurance coverage seems a nightmare to right wing trolls

A December surge propelled health care sign-ups through the government's rehabilitated website past the 1 million mark, the Obama administration said Sunday, reflecting new vigor for the problem-plagued federal insurance exchange.

Of the more than 1.1 million people now enrolled, nearly 1 million signed up in December, with the majority coming days before a pre-Christmas deadline for coverage to start in January. Compare that with a paltry 27,000 in October, the federal website's first, error-prone month — or 137,000 in November.

"We experienced a welcome surge in enrollment as millions of Americans seek access to affordable health care coverage," Marilyn Tavenner, the head of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said in a blog post.

The figures don't represent a full accounting for the country. They don't include December results from the 14 states running their own websites. Overall, states have been signing up more people than the federal government has. But most of that has come from high performers such as California, New York, Washington, Kentucky and Connecticut. Some states continue to struggle.

You won't be diverted in your compulsion to be perverted.

You won't discuss anything. As soon as your ignorance is exposed, you go back to your homophobic comedy routine.

I've seen it. It sucks.

So you remain backround noise, like your buddy No Surprise and his NAMBLA obsession.

You two are a lot alike. Wonder why??:)
