It's likely a little of both. It's all a backlash of not getting what they want in this country.

This country is changing and turning it's back on those who choose to remain stagnant in their hatred and ignorance. I think deep down most of them know they are believing in a false ideology but are too fearful to accept the reality that their lives are a lie.
But, I bet they still hope that there is some truth in that bit about "Jesus is coming soon."

Horrible. Hope he gets what he deserves.
I think it's three years maximum, and the lost job already took place. He's been put out to pasture a few years shy of a cushy retirement. Ouch! He'll be flying a whole lot less and certainly not on the same airline after that lapse of consciousness. Bigots and booze = bad combination.

Here are the average spending increases per year in raw dollars (not adjusted for inflation) in descending order by president:
President
Fiscal year baseline
Last fiscal year
Average percentage increase per year
Carter 1977 1981 16.4
Nixon 1969 1975 13.5
Johnson 1964 1969 11.0
George W. Bush 2001 2009 10.2
Reagan 1981 1989 8.6
Kennedy 1961 1964 7.1
George H.W. Bush 1989 1993 5.8
Clinton 1993 2001 4.0
Eisenhower 1953 1961 3.6
Obama 2009 2013 1.4
So, using raw dollars, Obama did oversee the lowest annual increases in spending of any president in 60 years.(cont.)

Would you like to apologize now, or are you incapable of dealing appropriately with facts? A simple "mea culpa" would be sufficient.
67.8% of statistics cannot be trusted: Radical spending cuts. When Bush left office his last Budget was $3.1 Trillion dollars.
Last year Obama spent 3.8 Trillion dollars a 700 billion dollar increase.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_fe ...
The US budget under Clinton was only 1.9 billion dollar. Now can we keep afford to double the budget every 12 years?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_fe ...
And this with the US economy one of the slowest growing in the world ,, While China economy growing at 7.8%
Russia growing at 3.6% and even Mexico at 3.8% the US economy grew at only 2.2%
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countrie ...
And the Democrats are the one who have been putting party before country.running on hatred and polarization of the country.
the Country is now more divided then anytime in history and Obama is the most polarizing President ever, but then that part of the Democratic game plan.

Actually it was the governemt of the Wiemar Republic that confiscated guns from German citizens in order to comply with the treaty of Versailles at the end of World War 1.

Hitler broke the treaty and deregulated private ownership of rifles and shotguns as well as lowering the legal age to own a gun allowing the German people to privately own guns again.

I know this "Hitler took the guns" thing is a big part of your right wing fantasies. The only problem is that it isn't true.

Hitler gave the guns back to the German people.

Do a little research.

Lets get the REALITY as per facts straight, right up front!..."mea cupla" in Latin, meaning error or to blame. Are you in fact incapable of appropriately understanding the facts as per policy(ies) put forth by this President as per deed? The raw data as per the policies put forth by deed made by the present leadership has America bankrupt! Do you madame, in your understanding of sound mind while not being capable of appropriately realizing... those policies are such that-America is spending more than she is making? She is bankrupt- to nearly!

Pardon you as to the "me, me, me" and who is the "mea cupla" to America's demise! Just deal with "appropriate" facts madame!

Actually, I would trust that NO one human in their right mind would trust the, "no man who would lead asunder" ... BUT shamefully and sadly TOO many have! Why would someone want gun control from their citizens(their protection) while under full security for themselves and that of their families? Whom needs protection from whom? Gov. from its people OR people from its gov.? Constitution ...the constitution needs to be EVER so upheld!

Yes, the subject is Obama the failure, failure to rein in spending, failure to increase employment, faikure to stop printing money, failure to hold gas prices down, failure to stop the deaths of our ambassador and servicemen, etc.
I thought you people mocked him for being a "Messiah." Now you WANT him to be one. Make up your bleepin' minds.

You failed at rational thinking, but Obama is still the President and you're what? A Topix troll. LOL!
