Get one think straight, if that is at all possible. There has been nothing to thank Republicans for in at least the last 35 years. And now that they have been infested by Tea Party types, it is hard to imagine having any reason to thank them in the foreseeable future.
Obama an his apes just want to raise taxes, that's his answer for everything. He spends the taxpayers money, I know you don't care cause you get a Welfare check, but some of us have to work and do ot like to see Obama wasting it.

I knew I shouldn't have bothered. Your understanding of government could fit into a thimble, with enough room left over for a Milk Dud.

Don't bother paying your electricity bill. You'll remain blind either way.

Instead of costantly trying to bash me, WHY don't you try to prove that BUM OBAMA lowered taxes? Cause you can't. He doesn't know what the words STOP SPENDING are.

You can't burden me with your lack of knowledge. Obama's lowering of taxes is a matter of public record and can easily be obtained.

As to why I "bash" you, my reason is two-fold:

1-I am a great admirer of Barack Obama and his accomplishments (you can look those up too)in the ugly face of Republican and Tea Party obstructionism. So when you insult Obama, I take it personally.

2-You are clearly short on information, and long on bigotry. You strike me as one of the more na´ve and shallow Topix contributors, and are thus very bashable.

Here is my offer. If you wish to argue actual issues, and can reliably back up your claims, and are willing to accept verifiable evidence to the contrary, we can have a bash-free exchange.
