We knew Obama would get an approval rise on the heels of his re-election, but it probably won't help him politically President Barack Obama has received a bump in his job approval figures.

Liberalism/Progressivism: Characterized medically as a mental disorder. Causes are suspected to be Genetic. Studies suggest that the gene that triggers maturity doesn't develop properly retarding or stunting ability to discern reality from fantasy. Symptoms include adolescent denial of factual circumstance,lying and fits of pique when confronted with the truth. Other symptoms include a childish desire coveting others' belongings as well as delusional ideas of superiority over others.

There is no known cure.

Liberal talking heads are already claiming violence at tea party rallies to offset the union thugs behavior. Asked to put up or shut up they shut up. The ONLY violence I can remember from a tea party rally was when some liberals attacked some rally people and a guy got his thumb bit off.

Thanks for proving my point about your extreme bigoted hatred and here for you again is the quote that shows the truth about the hate-filled Obamatons. Let the truth shine the light to fill your hate-filled empty world. Can't debate without name calling or with intelligent discourse?

"OH HATE-FILLED OBAMATON, I HAD TO POST IN CAPS SO YOU EXTREMELY HATE-FILLED OBAMATONS COULD READ PAST YOUR EMOTIONS TO SEE THE TRUTH. But as this post indicates you are still having problems. Maybe an anger management course might help you and as you Obamatons say your guy won as you should be happy instead of so anger filled. LOL"

Liberals are funny, in the Union, you can't have a choice, but as a women they demand it. It's all about controlling and buying votes and how much money you can launder.

Its kinda hard to defeat promises of free crap to people who:

1.) need help.

2.) have become accustomed to sloth.

3.) made welfare a career.

Yeah, I saw that! They were as mad as the liberals that post on topix! And the Democrats can say that they are for Americans like women, senior citizens, disabled, etc.(0:21 sec) Attacks on the people that disagree with the thugs to the point where they threaten to kill people (0:51 sec). Pretty darn sad and all that shows is the greed of the unions.

http://nation.foxnews.com/right-work/2012/12/...

"It’s a sad day for American TV journalism when The Huffington Post is a more honest news outlet than ABC, CBS or NBC. On Tuesday, after Michigan union protests escalated into violence, HuffPo led with several stories, including one headlined:“Fox News Contributor Punched.”

That story was about how Fox News contributor Steven Crowder and others were attacked by union thugs during the protest against the new “right-to-work” law. ABC, CBS and NBC covered the protests but only ABC made mention of police having to deal with protesters. None of them mentioned the attack on Crowder or showed the videos of that attack and the thugs tearing down a tent with people in it, both widely available on the Internet hours before the evening news show broadcast. No network quoted Teamsters head Jimmy Hoffa predicting “civil war” between lawmakers and union members.

Network reporters don’t want to show union thugs and conservative victims, especially anyone connected to Fox News. That doesn’t fit with their world view.

NBC anchor Brian Williams referred to it all meekly as “a boisterous day in the state capital.”

According to The Detroit Free Press, three people were arrested and “Capt. Harold Love of the Michigan State Police confirmed police used pepper spray on at least one demonstrator.” The article added that the union protesters “tore down a tent being occupied by Americans for Prosperity, a pro right-to-work group,” while chanting “Tear it down, tear it down.”

On broadcast news, the best they could all agree on was that the union thugs were some form of “angry.” On CBS “Evening News,” correspondent Elaine Quijano explained,“Union workers from across Michigan and other states voiced their anger at the Michigan capital.”

ABC’s “World News with Diane Sawyer” correspondent Alex Perez did slightly hint at the escalation, but showed nothing at all scary.“The anger boiling over, officers turning to pepper spray to control the crowd, at last 10,000 deep,” he told viewers as one man was shown rubbing his eyes. Anchor Sawyer referred to the law as one that supporters “believe could be an ominous sign for unions and worker paychecks everywhere.”

NBC “Nightly News” mentioned that there were at least police there at the protest, as correspondent Ron Mott admitted protesters operated under the “watchful gaze of police, some in riot gear.”

Even The Washington Post mentioned that “Former Rep. Mark Schauer (D-Mich.) was hit with pepper spray while protesting ‘right to work/ legislation outside the Michigan state capitol on Wednesday.”

None of that appeared on the evening news shows. That’s how reporters can control an agenda. Had journalists’ favorite villain the Tea Partiers beaten a liberal commentator, it would have led every newscast and would be talked about for days. Nor did they want to admit that union leadership was making threats and union thugs were carrying them out in vile and violent fashion.

But network reporters don’t want to show union thugs and conservative victims, especially anyone connected to Fox News. That doesn’t fit with their world view. Ain’t that a punch in the head – or several in Crowder’s case?"

If Obama don't want to be President and lead, why does he keep campaigning and living in the white house. It's not section 8 you know.

•'Squirm' Signals Over Libya Report?

Susan Rice Drops Out of Running for Secretary of State, Hillary continues to hide in plain sight.

State Department preparing for Libya bombshell? Look for Obama to jump on a plane and get out of dodge again. Run Forrest Run. Susan Rice's abrupt withdrawal from consideration for secretary of state, coupled with suggestions from the State Department that Secretary Hillary Clinton may not testify as scheduled next week, has stirred speculation that something big is brewing in the Libya terror attack investigation.
