This is the dichotomy of the Tea Party. It is white hillbillies with low IQs who have no college education who mainly live on the government, and it is also predominately old people who live on the government and who are on government health care - and yet their story is they are not the takers and they are somehow so great and they want the Republicans in office because Fox TV says so. Fox is for the rich, for the richest of the rich, they are the ones who want to end SS and Medicare and who want retired people and the redneck tea party to pay federal income taxes. So you have this group who lives off of the government, who loves their social programs, who claims they hate socialism, who repeats everything Fox TV says while at the same time Fox is for ending their socialism and for forcing them to pay a lot more taxes. The tea party is soooo stupid it doesn't even understand what Fox is saying to them. They are same as Lincoln's "Know Nothing Party."

But Before You Make That Choice, Ask Your Self This Question. What Would A Mormon President Do For The Women In Your Life (ie) Wife, Mother, Daughter ???? Mormon Men Must Follow Strict Mormon Law In Order To Get Into Mormon Heaven.

If the economy is good and there a plenty of jobs, I guess Obama succeeded!
Set yourself up for that one, hey Mittens? lol
There are jobs to be had,just like there were before Obama was elected.People had rather draw welfare than to work for a living.There is a town not far from here that I was visiting and went into the city hall.This was several months ago,and there were three jobs being advertised on the bulletin board .One for the sanitation dept.one for the street dept.and one for the police dept.These were full time jobs.I happened to be back there last week and the jobs still had not been filled.People will not apply.They had rather draw food stamps and welfare than to hang on the back of a garbage truck.Most could not apply for the police dept.because of their records.Too many drug arrests and Dwi convictions.
