Why do you think that they are put out by the liberal media? Gee, as if they reflect the reality of the nation. The liberals maybe, but that is it! It looks like the liberal MSM makes the polls follow what they want to project!

had obama been treated like everyone else, he never would have made it past iowa. between the rev wright debacle, the rezko paying for his house fiasco, the bill ayers association, and my personal favorite, the "typical white woman" comment about his grandmother, the media should have buried that inept poser 5 years ago!
Yep, the liberal media supports the messiah exclusively.

There will always be the Bush 20% and/or racists that make up 47% of the population that will support the 1% above all else, including their falsely proclaimed Christianity. Face it, President Hussein Obama WON, by the GRACE of GOD (that's "Allah" in Arabic). A lot of good folks were PRAYING for the outcome. That's just the way God rolls. Those who are still sulking need to get on with their Godless meaningless lives.

The “right” does “go low”(in more than one way)“and play the race card”, it’s called “dog whistles”. Dog Whistles are when they you words or phrases that southern Whites especially fully understand is referring to Blacks… and yes I agree with you –“They will never win”. Their flawed ideology, their hate-filled rhetoric and the new demographics has boxed them into permanent political irrelevance.

It seems to be working for the lefties.
Two points:

1. Pointing out the other side racist words, rhetoric or intentions isn’t playing the race card.
2. Blacks, Latinos and Women would not gravitate towards or feel comfortable in a political Party that is anti-Black, Latino or Woman. The republican Party knows full well how true that is.

That landslide victory with a massive mandate is a hard thing for the unpatriotic tea-baggers to get over, but at least we get to wallow in their misery, LOL!
So well put. You are like a poetic philosopher. Thank you for your military service and continued love for our country. It because of you and all the other tireless patriots in our country, along with vast majority of the American electorate that we can all gloat today. We not only have President HUSSEIN Obammy for FOUR MORE YEARS, but we also got rid of Laughing Liberal. GOD is GOOD. LOL

Obama needs the approval of the House, and Senate. The House won't give him everything he wants. He won't get an unlimited debt ceiling, and the Senate will likely turn him down as well since they have voted down every budget he pretended to need. Even Democrats voted against him in the Senate. We don't have a King. He just thinks he is King. So funny.
We are nearing the cliff... Will Republicans raise our taxes????

And think about: Laughing Liberal so embarrassed devastated and distraught over the election results that he (at least for now) disappeared. He was shamed into exiting the public stage for awhile. But the rest of these tea-baggers have no shame. Some hid for a few days, but others were on here immediately (trying to mask their pain and misery) spewing the same vitriolic rhetoric that regulated them to the ‘losers circle’.

No Shame.

But, had they not been here - then who would we have to rubbed in the face our euphoric joyous taunts?

Food for thought, LOL!

Don't you just love it when the liberals tell you what you are going to do? I find it funny that the liberals already say the Tea Party is gone as if they are in charge of actions of other people. As I can see they are barely responsible for their own actions and in Obama's case that he is responsible for nothing.

I've been on Topix for a couple of years and I've realized one thing.

Do not disagree or attempt to challenge the words or deeds of President Obama.

Lest you be labeled a racist, or other derogatory term.

Ironically Obama supporter's who were told there are no red states or blue states don't seems to pay attention to that much.

Do not post links to actual data or documents, it will be dismissed has biased and racist.

Do not attempt to change minds, you would be better off screaming at a wall telling it to move.

According to most Obama supporters there is no SEAL TEAM 6 only Obama in a flight suit kicking in doors and double tapping Osama personally.

I'm tired of $3.00 plus a gallon gas
I'm tired of unemployment above 7.5% for 5+ years
I'm tired of $16 trillion in debt with no solution.
I'm tired of hearing the mantra of "fair share"
I'm tired of "look what I inherited"
I'm tired of a government that for more the 6 years doesn't have federal budget plan.
I'm tired of the blame game.

It appears though that certain people however are more than comfortable with this current leadership style.

I'm pretty much done with Topix.

I am Christian (the good kind) and I prayed in the name of Jesus Christ that President Hussein Obama would win and he did, TWICE. It works. He WON, by the GRACE of GOD (that's "Allah" in Arabic). A lot of good folks were PRAYING for the outcome. That's just the way God rolls. Those who of you who are still licking your sore pus-filled wounds need to stop sulking. Try to find meaning in your Godless lives. Your hearts are bad.
