The Battling Boys of Benghazi
.
We're the Battling Boys of Benghazi,
no fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
Just a fiery death in a blazing hell,
defending the country we loved so well.
.
It wasn't our job but we answered the call,
fought to the consulate, and scaled the wall.
We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
Led them to safety, and stood at the gate.
.
Just the two of us, and foes by the score,
but we stood fast to bar the door.
Three calls for reinforcement, but all were denied,
So we fought and we fought, and we fought till we died.
.
But we gave our all for Uncle Sam,
but Barack Obama didn't give a damn.
Just two dead SEALs, who carried the load,
no thanks to us, we're just "bumps in the road."

The best part about President Obama’s approval ratings skyrocketing is that in spite of these right-wing idiots breathlessly pushing the non-story/wannabe scandal of Benghazi, the President is walking on air (and water) above their stupidity.

The results of Obama’s landslide victory with a mandate has to be killing these tea-baggers as the suffering and misery continues… this will be such a Merry Christmas for all of us patriotic Americans and we watch the unpatriotic among us get (clean) coil in their stockings this year, LOL!

Happy Holidays Tea-baggers!

Sky rocket to a whopping 57%, what a joke, Obama is not going a sign a budget with balanced cuts, the December job numbers will be in shortly and the economy will go into recession in 2013, Obama will try to blame it on Bush but it won't work.

Perpetual campaigning does pay off. In another year or two he's going to get serious and lead the country out of the recession.

"Western diplomats recently told visitors that Assad’s popularity exceeds 55 to 60 percent."

That makes Obama's popularity ALMOST as good as Syria's President Assad.

Don't get too giddy, the October drop was October mostly because more people stopped looking for work and weren't counted as unemployed, November retailers added 53,000 jobs (can you say Christmas, happens every year and they are not permanent jobs. We lost 7000 more manufacturing jobs than were added and the extra sales clerks at Macy's won't make up for that. It should have been better than 7.7% but state and local governments cut 35,000 more jobs than expected.

I say February because I think by then we will start feeling the beginnings of a recession brought about because Obama won't accept the restrictions the house is trying to put on him with the budget, won't be a fiscal cliff deal.

Funny how that first post of yours didn’t leave the impression that you expected these great numbers otherwise you would have made up this convoluted/incoherent explanation then.

Once again you right-wingers don’t get it… this whole cliff deal was a brilliant political chess move that President Obama box Boehner into back when Boehner lied to himself and claimed that he got 98% of what he wanted in that deal, when in all actuality President Obama got what he want then, and what he set up to happen now. It’s a win-win situation for President Obama. He gets the deal that he wants either way… be it by Boehner sticking a deal now, or later.

What deal there is not deal unless I missed something in the news, Obama did not get anything. What we are going to get in a recession because Obama want make cuts.

That only applies if it was obamas intent to go off the cliff in the first place so he could get his way and we could pay for it in the form of a recession.
