Romney had clear-cut plans for reforms that are long overdue and bold solutions.
We will now continue on the same path for another four years and neither will the democrats do anything differently, they will not even entertain the idea of major reforms.
Thanks for helping them maintain the status quo and bankrupting Medicare and Social Security even sooner. Good job.
so its off the to the cayman islands for the country club republicans and carol repeats the same old story

I saw you post a link to a bunch of celebs praising Obama, but I didn't see anything in the article about what Obama actually did.

Romney presented no plan, only goals.
His plan was to sit down with Republicans & Democrats in Congress, pass around the bong, sing Kumbaya & then solve all our problems.
Tell carol she's full of sht then post that crap? Really, putz? Are you too stupid to be embarrassed?

Same-sex marriage referendums were on the ballot in Maine, Maryland, Washington and Minnesota. And the victory fell on the side of gay rights. Residents of Maine, Maryland and Washington voted to legally recognize same-sex marriage in their respective states, marking the first time gay marriage was legalized by popular vote.(In states where it's legal, it had been passed by the state legislature previously.) And in Minnesota, a measure that, if passed, would have defined marriage as between one man and one woman, was defeated.
And on the West Coast, in Washington and Colorado, another milestone: the legalization of marijuana. In Oregon, a similar measure was defeated.
LOL

Interesting reporting.

The top 10% pay 70% of personal income tax, but the backbone of the economy and the bulk of government income comes from the middle class.
One small part of that, for example, is gasoline's 18.4 cpg federal tax and an average of 31 cpg state and local tax - and don't forget that as an end consumer you are paying 100% of the oil companies' taxes - despite anything and everything the oil lobby spokesmen say.
Those are ancillary taxes, there's only ONE federal tax on "income" and nearly 50% percent of the population and that includes the middle class, pay NONE. Yet, those who do pay it, don't pay enough? Get shock therapy.

I wonder if Obama has checked on the folks in NY, NJ and CT today to see how they survived without water, food, power, and shelter.......
No he has not which makes him no different from GW who did not check on Katrina victims.

Given this why do some still believe Obama is better than GW?

For all you Hispanics that voted for Obama, will Obama in his 2nd term push forth immigration reform? We know during an interview with Unvision Obama’s answer for not doing immigration in his 1st term was “He Had Too Much on His Plate!!” So the question is will Obama do immigration reform in his 2nd term or did he just toss the Hispanic Community another Bone for their Vote?

President Obama and Governor Christie made FEMA work, unlike the lackluster response of Bush to Katrina. Two parties working together.

I am happy and not surprised in the least that the American women would not stand for the backward thinking of the Republican party who wants to keep pushing to eliminate womens rights to choose.
I am astounded that Carol remains to stay stuck in that space.
Okay. I'm believing in future discussions you will sound happier and not so angry, since your main reason for anger seems to be moot now. At least for another 4 years. Of course, I'm sure many other issues will come into question, which we can all discuss reasonably.

They did? So the people in NY,CT, and NJ really aren't living in houses without power, they enough have food and clean water? They are just pretending to be cold and hungry.

Here's an example of FEMA working:

Looks as if FEMA is just a fair- weather friend.

Yesterday’s nor’easter proved too much for the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s aid location in Tottenville, SI — which hung a sign reading “Closed due to weather” as the wintery storm blew into town.

Ten FEMA centers in the area reportedly suspended operations because of the storm, although the location with the sign at the Mount Loretto Community Center did open at noon.

Folks like "sonic" will continue to attack Fox News for one reason and one reason only. They have nothing they can offer about president nobama and his failures so they attack a entity that dares offer a dissenting view of the news.
Peace
A dissenting view not held by a majority of the American people. Forget the election did we?

Talk about an attack.

When FOX quits lying, I'll back off. And from looking at Media Matters this morning I'll have no reason to do that in the near future.
