These are the people that mostly voted for Obama

If welfare people wasn't allowed to vote things would be totally different. Instead most stay on the system instead of helping themselves and expect the working class to supply them everything. We need to go back to the times where you were only allowed to stay on it for so long then have to get a job. By the time he is done in office there will be no America instead we will be Chinas. People should of woke up. No one seems to see what he is or they brush it under the rug. Hes done nothing the first 4 years but put us in more debt where will we be in another 4?

You are a damn racist fool. The working class are the people that end up on welfare. Most welfare is temporary. The only people that sit at home and collect checks are the disabled. Food stamp programs have requirements. Unemployment insurance has requirements. The Obamaphone is a lie. It is a federal program that has been in place since the Reagan administration. It was originally used to help low income people to get landline telephones. The program was later updated to include cellular phones under the George W. Bush administration. When will you stop blaming the black and the poor for all of the countries problem and look to the people in control to take responsibility. They lie and tell you that you and that black lady are polar opposites. When in reality you would probably be in that position if you lived in a ghetto. Just based on your grammar I am guessing that you are uneducated. That lady in that video probably has a job, same as you. Both probably are about the same level of intelligence. Probably not too much difference between her yearly income and yours. You have no right to judge her, but you do. I guarantee someone in your family gets government money. Someone in your family almost surely collects Social Security, WIC, food stamps, medicare, or medicaid.

The time has come to teach the takers, cheaters, liars and thieves a lesson. Let them see whether they can print money enough to feed themselves. Let the conservatives embrace the revolution of the old Left: Drop out.

It's now time for the shakers and movers in our nation to allow the thieves to eat their lunacy for breakfast.

There isn't much difference between Romney and Obama anyway. It's just the same old status quo.

Are you serious? Republicans are for the repeal of Rowe v. Wade, against gay marriage, against taxing millionaires. They want the privatization of Social Security and Medicare. They are anti-union and anti-regulation, and they don't believe in climate change. That is off the top of my head. Are you even paying attention?

What the hell are you talking about. That was almost as intelligible as a Sarah Palin quote. I legitimately don't know what your point is.

evidently some have never heard about the buisnesses that Romney shut down and sent jobs to China...that he has investments in and making money from.......or all of the offshore bank accounts and investments that he has...and doesn't pay a penny tax on.

The worst welfare cases by far , are the loopholes that these ultra rich use to keep their money out of the US hands....

You're idiots. You don't know how anything works. You live on false snippets generated by your own idiots. It's useless trying to explain anything to you any longer. You deserve what's coming at you. You are going to be hungry before it's over.

Some people show their dumbed down teacher's union education everytime they spout their democratic talking point lies. And what difference does it make whether Romney shut a few businesses down and shipped them to China anyway? Romney certainly didn't do it while being a successful gov of Mass with a balanced budget or while saving the olympics. What did the marxist self anointed king obamanation ever do successfully except blatantly pander for votes from special interest groups. Fool.
Prove what you say. I read all of these posts and yours are the most vague. I love that you people around here are smarter tuan actual economists. I mean the things that are said can be fact checked. So acting like everyone who thinks differently than you just has no understanding is just you deflecting attention away from your ignorance. You start attacking the person instead of the content in the post. And I like the little jab at teachers unions. That idea is obviously not a republican talking point. Oh, yea it is. Wow it is almost like you are projecting your flaws onto your perceived enemy. But by far the scariest thing is that people like you own guns. They really should screen people better because you seem like a CNN headline waiting to happen.

You are an idiot. You can't even be bothered to write anything but hateful stuff. I thought Obama's first term was supposed to be a disaster. Funny, I am doing better tyan at the start of 09 when he came into office. Apparently so were some auto workers in Ohio who handed Romney's ass to him. You poor bitter person. Try to laugh more in lfe.b maybe you can stop being so nasty.

I can't believe the people for Obama on here, from West Virginia at that. This has nothing to do with race like people want to throw out just because you don't vote for him. We are a coal state something he is wanting to get rid off and is. He is shutting down power plants with coal. Do you realize that puts so many people out of work and with the rate of unemployment going up as it is and the people living off the government now I hate to see what happens to this state. I found a piece of the net that sums this up that I am pasting on here when you read it ask yourself Is this what I want for this state for America?
Coal is abundant and cheap. That makes it profitable. Obama is working very hard to remove that profit. Should we cut out coal energy altogether? That's Obama's plan. Of course, coal mines/power-plants/etc... employ a lot of small towns. They also power a great deal of America. India cut it's coal consumption this summer and they had two 7-state-wide blackouts that occurred in the middle of some of the hottest days of the year. Hundreds of millions of people without power for their air conditioners (heat index on those days was over 100 degrees Fahrenheit), refrigerators, freezers, or stoves. On August 1, another blackout threatened, but they caught it in time and cut the power supply to 7 gigawatts when demand was at more than 9.
Is *that* your vision for the future, Democrats? Oh, let me guess. It'd be ok if it advances green energy. So the ends justify the means? And if a few people get sweaty, or die of heat-stroke, that's all for the greater good, right? Hogwash.
As it stands, Obama's subsidies for green energy has lead more than a dozen green energy companies to bankruptcy (like A123, or Solyndra).(end quote)
So go ahead and keep drinking Obamas koolaid and believe all the lies he has told you and wonder what will become of America and your childrens future. Stop blaming Busch for the economy hes not in there anymore and the debt has even climed higher. By the time he is done with us we will be what he wanted a weaker America. And for the record i am neither Rep or Dem I just have seem first hand what he has done the first 4 years and his plans for the next and it was nothing except destroy us.(oh and I am not racist either before that comes into play) God Bless America! not Damn America like Obamas preacher like to preach.

Nothing says "I'm not a racist" like actually saying it. I believe you though. I don't think that you are against Obama because of race. I think that you are believing the lies told to you. Let's start with the war on coal. I would suggest that you check out this article http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials-on-t... . Also, in regards to you saying we need to stop blaming bush. Bush was responsible for trillions of spending that he never budgeted. Two wars and a prescription plan that were passed without any consideration of how to pay for them. If you are truly concerned with the debt why aren't you placing blame on the person responsible for the most reckless spending of the new millennium. I think that maybe you should turn off the Fox News and stop listening to people that run these mines.

Republican or democrat no-one can deny the xenophobia coming from the other side. A heavy majority of white males voted for Mitt Romney. Yet, Mitt lost the electoral vote in a landslide, and won the popular vote by several million. The one thing both parties agree on is that the minority population is a necessity for the republican party. What do they do now? Are you people willing to consider amnesty for undocumented workers? What are your views on affirmative action? Should we stop building mosques in the USA? START THINKING! If you want to be a party in 2020 maybe you should start thinking forward... whose slogan was that.?

I completely agree but I think you meant that Mitt Romney lost the popular vote by several million.

Nice rant...too bad that you don't have a clue about the whole situation.

Are you all for the Gas Fracking that is going on everywhere in this area?
If so then you do realize that this gas boom is the biggest reason for the downfall of coal..don't you?
The Power plants are switching over to gas because it is so abundant and CHEAP, as well as cleaner burning.
Obama isn't doing shit as far as "shutting down" the coal mines.
The EPA laws that have been in place since the 70's require power plants to use scrubbers to eliminate all of the SO2, CO2, and other harmful gases and pollutents from being spewed into the atmosphere. The Power plants don't want that because it costs a lot of money and cuts into their profit margins.
Your friend Bush/Cheney suspended the Clean Air and Clean Water requirements from the EPA because the Big Boys donated so much money for there campaigns as well as put money into their pockets.

It is the totally ignorant ones like yourself that make the common sense people of America look like they are a genius..as well as making WVians all look like hillbillies and the stereotypes that many portray us as.

Since you evidently know how to use a computer, try researching some facts before spewing your ignorance and calling people childish names.......

Obama stated he was going to war against coal in 2008 and guess what he did just that. The EPA regulations are mandated by OBAMA. He also said he hoped gas prices went up to 6.00 a gallon. I have watched him give both of these speaches so do not try to tell me i am wrong.
