WHAAAAA!“Obama spikes the ball after beating us again”. Hey idiot, look at the bright side: Had you been able to beat Obama on November 6, 2012 he would not have gotten the mandate to be able to dance in the end zone after running up the score on the imploded republican Party.
I love the way Obama taunted the GOP during his comment on negotiations yesterday. Senate republicans ran to the floor of the Senate to cry about it, LOL.
Problem is, bozo. Your messiah ran to the wrong end zone!! LMAO

Why don’t you go see if Rasmussen has any polls for you to post? Why did you stop posting those poll numbers; you use to come on here enthusiastically showing off Rasmussen and Gallup numbers during the election, what happened; what made you stop?

Gee, the Republicans negotiated again to stop the Obama (fiscal) cliff. Obama was no where to be found until he spiked the ball of the work by Biden and McConnell.
Smart move by Obama, who recognized the long relationship between Biden and McConnell, and got a deal done.

Congressman Frank R. Wolf, along with over twenty-five co-sponsors in the House of Representatives, has introduced House Resolution 824 to create a Special Committee to conduct a real investigation into the attack on the Benghazi consulate and CIA safe house. Wolf and others want to know why Barack Obama sent little if any help to save the four brave Americans who lost their lives and why this fact was covered up.
.
The impeachment should clear it all up for our lying cowardly democrats.
Hello again, you f''king hypocrite. As if you give a shit about the four people killed in the Benghazi tragedy. It is evident to all but the brain dead that you are constantly exploiting this issue for your own psychopathic purposes. Keep it up and you will lose your outdoor privileges.

Agree.
The only way Congress is ever gonna reach any compromise is if Oblamer is left out of the mix.
I never thought I'd encourage him to go on more vacations and play more rounds of golf,but,there it is.
America can't absorb 4 more years of nothing so we might as well accept Oblamer for what he is,a waste of space.

I think you want the fiction thread, Brad.

Since Bush took three times as much vacation time as Obama during a comparable period, and Reagan more than twice as much, you must be working on a novel.

Unlike you,I want to focus on whats happening in the here and now.
Recognizing the mistakes of others from the past is only beneficial if you don't repeat them.
But you liberals are hell bent on repeating them as a way of getting what you feel are your just dues.
Enjoy the time you have because Americans are waking up.

It's hard to get the big picture when you have such a small screen.
I never said I wanted more spending. We have $16+ trillion in debt. EVERYBODY needs to have their taxes raised, from the poorest to the richest. And spending needs to be actually cut, instead of just a decrease in the projected increase in spending which they are passing off as cuts.

Until the debt is paid off we need to do the following:
-Cut ALL govt spending 50% across the board.
-Raise taxes for EVERY American by 50%, including the poor & seniors.

It will still take a decade or more to pay off the debt that way, but at least it's a start.

The Senate Repubs caved and the house will probably do the same. It`s a sick game these political hacks are playing with American lives. We will never see any real spending cuts from this cummunist mooslim lovin administration.

The only way we would have seen serious cuts was to have gone over the cliff. The next 5 generations will be paying for this screwup which was caused by the DC scum in the first place.

Enough people have fled California, and gone to Texas to allow Texas to pick up 2 additional Congressmen, and California to lose 2 congressmen. It is all about jobs, and taxes.

That won't work, Brad. It was you who brought up what you consider Obama's excessive vacation time in the here and now. I simply pointed out how groundless your allegation was.

Yes, Americans are waking up. While the Teabaggers are turning to dust, most Americans are moving leftward.

Was that before he quit the cliff talks and flew to Hawaii to play golf, or before he was going to pivot to jobs four years ago.

How can the republicans in the Senate do anything other than what Obama has been doing. They agreed to do what he wanted, then he as before demanded more. He wants the cliff, let's give it to him. America isn't as stupid and you children and entitlements......your motto is, JUST GET THE NAME ON THE CHECK RIGHT........to hell with the rest.
