Should we impeach Obama?

Thanks for once again bringing actual numbers into the debate, Tissue. Did you catch Megan Kelly on Fox actually ask Karl Rove if he was using "Republican Math" to make himself feel better?  (Nov 9, 2012 | post #14)

Sept. 19: Mitt Romney and his 47%, and on Americans kille...

The 47% of Americans who do not pay taxes include current soldiers, retirees, and millions of Americans who make less than 20K per year. These are not "takers" nor are they responsible for America's demise. Romney even managed to include millionaires who do not pay taxes because of loopholes he is loathe to close in the tax code. His own father received welfare and his running mate paid for his schooling through the social security funds he received upon his father's death. The problem isn't Romney's honesty. It's his fundamental lack of understanding of who the people of this country are, what we do, and just how hard we do work. Apparently, this is a problem you share with the governor.  (Sep 22, 2012 | post #344)

Romney campaign attempts damage control after video leak:...

President Obama has turned around the economy so that we are no longer losing over 750,000 jobs per month as we were under Bush. President Obama has made it impossible for employers to discriminate against women without facing legal consequences. President Obama has made it so that no American will ever again have to accept the term "preexisting condition" from an insurance company unwilling to provide health care coverage. President Obama is the first sitting president to recognize that civil marriage is a civil right for all couples -- whether gay or straight. President Obama has ended the war in Iraq, killed Osama bin Laden and 22 other top Al Qaeda operatives, and is ending the war in Afghanistan. President Obama has saved the American auto industry, and through the stimulus managed to create over two years of steady increases in job growth. What exactly are you objecting to that Obama has done for our country?  (Sep 22, 2012 | post #328)

Jimbo, CNN is a left wing hack site?? I don't think so. Warren, Obama, and lots and lots of Democrats are up in the polls thanks to Mitt Romney and his ridiculous yet highly revealing comments.  (Sep 21, 2012 | post #292)

I'm actually feeling sorry for Mittens. I think we should have an early election and put him out of his misery. And now, his "gaffes" are actually hurting Republicans down-ticket. Pobrecito!  (Sep 21, 2012 | post #295)

Interesting take on things. There are, of course, pro-choice Republicans and anti-choice Democrats. Abortion and reproductive rights aren't necessarily politically partisan issues. Mitt Romney is pro-choice, or at least he was in Massachusetts. Anyway, lots and lots of American Catholics are democratic, and I don't see anything in the democratic party as anti-labor  (Jul 17, 2012 | post #3552)

Palin: Romney needs to set 'hair on fire'

You have a point, Jimbo. People love drama, and Katie just didn't bring it. Palin, on the other hand, is so full of drama, so entertaining -- she's hilarious. Well, not hilarious so much as hysterical. But still... I'd pay to see Sarah set her hair on fire (not so she'd get burned -- just a bit annoyed. She's cute when she's annoyed).  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #226)

O'Reilly Battles With NAACP Executive Over Whether Romney...

Actually, I've come to believe that Romney -- because he IS a veteran of the political process (for how many years has this guy been running for President, anyway?) -- is NOT a bigot, but is playing to his base, pretending to be something he's not. Which, I think is worse than being an idiot who can't trust or like people who are different than he is.  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #20)

Fox News admits on air to lying about President Obama

Accusing others of the same thing your guy, Steve Doocy, did is not actually a defense. It's the equivalent of yelling "I'm rubber and you're glue!" Meanwhile, I am shocked, shocked I tell you, that anything on Fox could possibly be untrue. I'll be on the fainting couch with my smelling salts.  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #165)

A Day in the Life of Joe Middle-Class Republican by John Gray, Cincinnati, Ohio, July 2004 ------------------ ------------------ ---------------- Joe gets up at 6:00 AM to prepare his morning coffee. He fills his pot full of good clean drinking water because some liberal fought for minimum water quality standards. He takes his daily medication with his first swallow of coffee. His medications are safe to take because some liberal fought to insure their safety and that they would work as advertised. All but $10.00 of his medications are paid for by his employer's medical plan because some liberal union workers fought their employers for paid medical insurance, that Joe now gets too. He prepares his morning breakfast-bacon and eggs today. Joe's bacon is safe to eat because some liberal fought for laws to regulate the meat packing industry. Joe takes his morning shower reaching for his shampoo. His bottle is properly labeled with every ingredient and the amount of its contents because some liberal fought for his right to know what he was putting on his body and how?many chemicals it?contained. Joe dresses, walks outside and takes a deep breath. The air he breathes is cleaner because some tree hugging liberal fought for laws to stop industries from polluting our air. He walks to the subway station for his government-subsidi zed ride to work; it saves him considerable money in parking and transportation fees. You see, some liberal fought for affordable public transportation, which gives everyone the opportunity to be a contributor. Joe begins his work day; he has a good job with excellent pay, medical benefits, retirement, paid holidays and vacation because some liberal union members fought and died for these working standards. Joe's employer pays these standards because Joe's employer doesn't want his employeesto call the union. If Joe is hurt on the job or becomes unemployed he'll get a worker compensation or unemployment check because some liberal didn't think he should lose his home because of his temporary misfortune. It's noon time. Joe needs to make a Bank Deposit so he can pay some bills. Joe's deposit is federally insured by the FSLIC because some liberal wanted to protect Joe's money from unscrupulous bankers who ruined the banking system before the depression. Joe has to pay his Fannie Mae underwritten Mortgage and his below market federal student loan because some stupid liberal decided that Joe and the government would be better off if he was educated and earned more money over his life-time. Joe is home from work, he plans to visit his father this evening at his farm home in the country. He gets in his car for the drive to dad's; his car is among the safest in the world because some liberal fought for car safety standards. He arrives at his boyhood home. He was the third generation to live in the house financed by Farmers Home Administration (FHA) because bankers didn't want to make rural loans. The house didn't have electricity until some big government liberal stuck his nose where it didn't belong and demanded rural electrification. (Those rural Republicans would still be sitting in the dark) He is happy to see his dad, who is now retired. His dad lives on Social Security and his union pension because some liberal made sure he could take care of himself so Joe wouldn't have to. After his visit with dad he gets back in his car for the ride home. He turns on a radio talk show. The host keeps saying that liberals are bad and conservatives are good. (He doesn't tell Joe that his beloved Republicans have fought against every protection and benefit Joe enjoys throughout his day) Joe agrees. "We don't need those big government liberals ruining our lives; after all, I'm a self made man who believes everyone should take care of themselves, just like I have."  (Jul 16, 2012 | post #3479)
