Copied it right off google, a search engine, you know, where words like strategy are used to describe things like debates. Don't like it? Don't care. Next time, know what you're talking about before you open your mouth, little fella.

Michele Bachmann: Still not making any sense.
For a woman who hates government, like, a lot, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Crazy Town) sure loves those sweet, sweet government handouts, doesn't she? She hates Medicaid for "swelling the welfare rolls," but she's cool with her husband's "mental health clinic" collecting Medicaid dollars. Then there's that "family farm" of hers that's raked in piles of sweet, sweet government subsidies through a farm bill she voted against because it was "loaded with unbelievably outrageous pork." Mmmm, that pork sure tastes good, don't it, Michele?
Then there's her federally subsidized home loan, backed by either Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac, programs she has criticized and blamed for causing the economic crisis in 2008.
And let's not even get into who's been signing her paychecks since 1988.(Cough the government cough.)
And the $1000 + she gets per head for her
"foster children", how many does she have? 24?

The government is broke partly because the Republicans spent & didn't pay for any of it. And, guess the f*ck what, they had a GD budget.
Yep, that budget certainly worked well under Bush.
BTW, Obamacare is paid for. It raises or saves money to make up for the cost.
Being a right winger, this is likely a new & foreign concept for you.

Your planet is very interesting. It is very different than Earth where the Republicans turned over to the Democrats in January, 2007, a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit and a total debt of 5 trillion dollars. Since the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government in January, 2007, they have increased the deficit by ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT to 2.4 trillion dollars, and more than tripled the total debt to 16 trillion dollars. And, if you can imagine something that could possibly be more rediculous than this, the Democrats had a super majority in the Senata and a dominant majority in the House, and THEY STILL COULDN'T GET A BUDGET TOGETHER. We haven't had a budget for the government since we put a Democrat in the White House.
To tell you about something that's even more idiotic, the Democrat president has only developed 2 budget proposals in the 4 years he's been in office, and THE SUM TOTAL OF VOTES FOR ALL TWO OF HIS BUDGETS IS ZERO. That's NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH. He gets 99 percent of the black vote at the polls, and CAN'T GET EVEN ONE SINGLE VOTE FOR HIS BUDGETS FROM THE BLACK CAUCUS.
And, you just won't believe this. Even when it's obvious every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is a nutcase and not one Democrat will vote for his budget proposal, THEY STILL PUT HIM ON THE BALLOT TO RUN FOR ANOTHER TERM.
And, here on Earth, those lunatic Democrats are actually bragging about their performance in government after giving us the Three Stooges act I descirbed above.

I'm glad you don't have to live with a Three Stooges act for a government on your planet. Here on Earth we'd like to have that, too.

Stopped reading at the second word of your post. Represents the amount of brain power you obiously place in making your decisions. You do yourself no favors by being able to rival a junior high potty mouth. I don't care what their political views are either for the same reasons.

You tea bag dks said Romney was winning
Mitt Romney gained further ground in a Fox News forecast on Monday, with his chances of winning the Electoral College increasing to 25.2 percent from 21.6 percent on Sunday.
Not bad!
I do think that means Obama has 74.8% chance of winning.
A bounce from one debate puts them all spinning out into euphoria. Can't blame em, it's the first marginally positive thing they have. Won't last long. Let em enjoy it.

You don't think Mormons need help and their church provides it? Instead of the government?
This country would be a heck of a lot better off if every single American gave regularly to a local church's benevolence fund or donated food to a religious or community organizations' food pantry for the needy.
Those donations would not be wasted and would be put into the right hands for the right reasons.
It would solve the problem of caring for the poor. Not a disguise to get votes and stay in power.
Funnelling upwards of $20 million to influence another states ballot initiative is political activism, not charity.

The right's target is PBR which it considers the "enemy" and to a lesser degree PBS which is much less political.

The "Big Bird" comment was unnecessary, stupid really as it was only one more case of moderate Mitt pandering to the right.

When YOU call for the repeal of Obamacare, you want to increase the cost of healthcare & health insurance, increase the uninsured by 30 million.
And really, whining about paying to support your government?
You have a choice in education. Don't expect me to pay for your choice.
The problem with your statement is this.

Obamacare has NOT reduced the cost of healthare or health insurance. Obamacare has increased the cost of healthcare and health insurance.

There are many better alternatives to providing healthcare for 30 million uninsured than by stealing 751 Billion in funds supposed to be dedicated to elderly citizens who have paid for these benefits in advance.

I don't know if you have ever read the affordable healthcare act in part or in whole.The legislators who passed it into law didn't. The government controls over how medicine is practiced and even who qualifies for treatment is controlled firectly by the government under the provisions of this law.

A senior citizen aged 80 stands a much less chance of having open heart surgery performed than does a 28 year old citizen. The reason according to the guildelines in the bill.

These are pretty dramatic changes to buy healthcare for illegal immigrants in my opinion. I especially don't like stealing money from old peoples benefits to provide healthcarte for illegal aliens.
