Keep drinking the kool aid, Obama is trying to drive the US off a cliff and you can't see what is going on with your own eyes.

Hey, what is the big deal about having to show an ID to vote, what can you do without showing an ID, you can't get a library card, can't open a bank account, can't rent an apartment.
And even FDR said that the public sector should not be allowed to form unions, too much of a conflict of interest.
And by all means lets keep teachers in the class room that are unable to teach, those that can, do, those who can't teach, those who can't teach teach gym..

Lets face facts. The GOPs idea that cutting taxes will create jobs is crazy. On the other hand, the Dems. plan to create jobs by monotary stimulus is equally crazy. Free trade and our refusal to enforce immigration policy are what have taken our jobs. Both parties have bent over backwards to appease big corporations at the expense of the American worker.

That is what we have all been waiting for the JOBS, when is the Odumbo going to permit some jobs in this country, the dumbotards have been in controll of this country since 2006, so if you want jobs hold the feet of the democrats to the fire, they are the ones in charge, the are the ones trying to drive the "bus" off the cliff..

I just came back home after trying to keep a few small factories in operation in Pennsylvania, trying to get around all the new regulations that our Nobama has put in, I have seen democrats destroy jobs before in the 1970's they destroyed thousands of jobs that never came back, all I want is to allow our guy's to be on a level playing field, but the democrats do not want that, they want the jobs gone, wait until all the coal power plants get shut down this year..

As long as large corporations are given tax breaks for offshoring jobs, your small companies will never be able to compete with them. They have carte blanche to abuse their workers over there. We do have too many regulations over here, but it beats having to work like a slave.

The GOP again shows itself to be gutless to do what it feels is right and good for the country. They're doing the same thing nationally by stonewalling a vote on the SAVE Act. You can't trust either party. Getting reelected and increasing party power is far more important to them than doing what's good for this country.

Yes, but why has Obama and the democrats stood in the way of any job creation in this country, they have fought it at every turn, shut entire industries down, had to laugh was out in Ohio working in a factory and he Obama folks called up the local union to do a photo opt, they asked people who wanted to be there,, NO ONE signed up, then the union was going to pay people to show up with union dues, and no one showed up, they went another city, what is it about this that is so hard for you tards to understand about jobs, just sit down and look at the jobs that have been destroyed by the progressive tards in the last 30 years through needless regulation, our air is clean, fine as it is, let me take you around the world with me and I will teach the tard how life really is, how things work, the United States is the cleanest country in the world, wow spent a week in China and it's even worse, can't wait to go home for a week and then back again, are you just so bitter and angry that you can't get a good job after what you paid for college, didn't learn anything, hey I will hold your hand some day and try to teach you about the progressive mess, I have seen it all over the world, won't be home for a while though, only time I enjoyed being away from home, is with Obama in the White house.

If you are a middle class person, both parties have their hand in your pocket, dems to the lazy poor, the Gop to the rich. Why isn't there a party for us anyway? Oh wait, many are union workers.

I want to thank the republican party for fighting the war on voter fraud. Even though there are no reported problems with voter fraud.

Hopefully, they will take this energy and fight against corporate fraud.

Corporate America has single handedly wiped out a large section of the middle class and have sent our good jobs out of the country for bigger profits.

They've wiped out people's pensions and life savings. They've even lobbied to lower the minimum wage.

I'm sure the republicans will focus on this problem as soon as they fix a problem with voter fraud that doesn't exist.

I won't hold my breath, however.

Ah Hahahahahaha!!!
