Let's see: Obama managed to beat everything the tea party could throw against him.
Let's put aside the tea bag party doesn't have anyone that has the IQ that reaches room temperature.
If whining counted for votes, the tea party has a big jump on 2016.
Bareballs, you have to stop smokin that crap! Most of the Congresspeople who claim to be members of the Teaparty are elected official, just like your Mr. Obama guy! Most of them have a higher IQ than you could wish for, and all are gainfully employed, which apparently your not, seeing you spend hours on here looking like a complete ass!

If you didn't have your head buried mustache deep into your boyfriend's pubes, you could look it up and see who was the first American to die in Vietnam and the name of the president who sent him.
I understand, stickygums: you aren't ready to deal in facts.
Hey dickweed, take you head out of your ass. I said the first troops were sent in by Kennedy, that is a fact. The rest were advisors, CIA and Black Ops. Not troops! Now take a deep breathe and try a little comprehension before you go off on another moronic tizzy!

<quoted text>Can't agree on this one....seem's he steered us away from the worst recession in my lifetime....while actually spending very little, considering our rebound.....He has'nt put us into any long ground wars.....and has helped us into a healthy, slow recovery, despite the House republican's obstructing every piece of meaningfull legislation, that might have helped our people or country.....too soon to tell, what the longterm view will reveal.....
He has the same percentage of unemployed as he did when he started over four years ago. How is that a recovery? And let's not forget that they keep adding more people who are not looking for work which is the only reason the unemployment numbers aren't higher.

Only an insane person tries to do the same thing twice and expect different results. Republicans are only stopping more wasted money like that of the last so-called stimulus bill.

Perhap's you might contact Mitt Romney and those at Bain Capital and all of corporate America and ask them to quit all the outsourcing. Democrat's attempted to pass a bill, ending the taxbreaks for companies that outsource, but House republican's voted it down....Occasionally, you might look over your shoulder, at your own team.....

There is no law that gives tax breaks to companies that move jobs overseas.

http://www.factcheck.org/kerry_blames_corpora...

Companies and corporations leave the US for a number of reasons including taxes, regulations, unions and stock value. Tax breaks are no reason to pack up your entire company and ship it somewhere on a boat or plane. It's usually a combination of reasons. And the next jobs to leave the country? Add ObamaCare to that list above.

Probably still too soon to start talking about black men taking a weekend to play golf as a "boys' weekend." The term's still racially charged.
Maybe not intended, but unpleasant.
Why do you constantly look for race in everything? For Gods sake a half black man was reelected president, there is raciest on both side of the aisle, Obama has sat back and allowed this to happen, he has not once stopped this racial crap, even Bill Clinton during the 2008 democrat primary said Obama and his people are playing the race card against Hillary.

They do it because they "think" it works. They can turn a hotdog sale at a supermarket into a race issue.

If you believe in aliens from another planet, chances are you think you've seen aliens.

If you believe in Mother Mary and her blessings on earth, chances are you've seen her.

If you believe we live among ghosts that interact with humans, chances are you've seen ghosts.

If you believe race is an issue even on a can of spaghettio's. chances are you believe spaghetti is a form or racism.

We have the same number of jobs in the US as we did after Bush's historic job losses...in just four short years. that would be historic job growth.

A quick perusal of the comments posted on any Topix page will tell you loud and clear that racism is alive and well in the Us today...

You site racism when there is really racism. Saying "boys" weekend is not a term with any racial meaning at all. Only in the defective minds of some will race pop into their heads when the term "boys" is used.

It should not be a race issue, dear friend, but the obsessive unhinged craziness by some of your birther folks because the president plays golf has to have some rational reason for it?

Class envy? Inferiority complex? Well educated black president? Not being breastfed by your mothers? Jealousy? Paranoia? Frightwing obsession?

I see. So you rate success as doing a job for four years and ending up with what you started at? That's what you call success?

If you want to talk about a tough concept, let's examine the Bush years where 6 out of 8 were successes and 0 out of 4 were failures for your President. Also consider the fact that Bush's two worst years were behind a Democrat led Congress. You know Congress; the people who spend our money?

I really don't care if he plays with his self for relaxation, if hes doing that then hes not screwing something else up. "Well educated black president " how do you know, have you seen his sealed records?

For the next 4 years (maybe even longer), these pathetic right-wing idiots are going to have to suffer with every event, nonevent, speech, outing, vacation and golfing trip that President Obama makes…‘We the People’ spoke loud and clear last November and we showed the right-wingers in this country that they don’t count, their opinions don’t matter and that this is our country and they can leave if they don’t like it.
God; you gotta love it, LOL!
