Barack Obama, our next President

Nobody "knows" this because it's untrue. The people who think it have been conned by right wing hate radio. Even conservative economists know the economy's better, and were it not for the greed of the far right and libertarian loons it'd be even better.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #1230676)

Barack Obama, our next President

Except your wrong. Not only have there been significant job growths since Obama took office, there's been MASSIVE growth in the private sector, and the only reason joblessness is as high as it is is the hundreds of thousands of jobs lost in the public sector because of Republican cuts to services that not only helped people but also employed people. Worried about unemployment? Voting Republican only makes it worse.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #1230671)

Pelosi Election Day lunch not quite a party

This was not "discovered, " it was claimed by racist hate groups. Their "credibility " never existed with Klansman like you. Sec. Clinton wasn't remotely responsible for what happened in Benghazi, and the only "cover up" is racist morons like you covering up what really happened with cheap hate radio propaganda and lies.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #18)

Did a Muslim steal your lunch money in 6th grade, that being last year, or what? Your insane hate of Muslims is as stupid as it is morally repugnant. Nobody is being "Paid to serve the Muslims," they're refusing to swallow your hate and lies because these are educated people who know Muslims aren't the bogeyman.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #17)

Asian Guy--" I didn't vote for Obama the first time around simply because he was black like a lot people did." A vile, racist lie. NOBODY voted for Obama simply because he was black. The people you claim did so didn't support Alan Keyes, did they? "bush was not an angel. anybody who is pro-illegal is not an angel in my book. aiding and abetting is a felony crime." So in other words, you're such a racist that even conservatives like Bush are hated, you hate anyone who isn't a racist. "has Obama destroyed the liberals?" Obama isn't a liberal, and the Dems who lost last night aren't. "maybe for one term or 2. in my experience, the new generation of voters will forget what happened in the past. that's reality in the usa." Right, people will forget about greed and bigotry and start voting with a conscience again and those horrible liberals will win, and you'll cry and cry. "but yeah. I'm celebrating with you. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHA. Obama is bad for the country. he is a conman." You're the one who's been conned, but not by Obama.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #16)

Louisana's Senate candidates make final push

Most predictable things to happen online--anyone calling themselves "smart" in a user name will be stupid, and anyone calling themselves "truth" in a user name will lie like mad.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #6)

Tuesday's election will be hard to take sober

No, they just bought the elections. It doesn't take many any longer since SCOTUS legalized bribery and election fraud.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #91)

Obama wants an election about the economy, not him

There is no such thing as a heterophobe, and this KKK lie that gay people all like little boys is, like most of what you puke out, proven false.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #1210)

Obama wants an election about the economy, not him

The racist crap of "The Bell Curve" has been completely debunked. Which you'd know were you not so scared and freaked by actual education and real facts. It was an excuse for economic injustice, and will not ever make the mountain of proof that economic injustice and lack of educational opportunities are the reasons for poverty, not "you're just black and stupid."  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #1209)

'Fox News Sunday' to Host Kentucky Senate Debate

Wrong. The dollars have spoken. SCOTUS legalized bribery and buying elections, and until Citizens United is overturned it's about money, not the people. The GOP doesn't give a damn about the people, clown.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #186934)

Jeanne Shaheen scores Democratic victory in New Hampshire

Elizabeth Warren hasn't lived in Oklahoma in about 45 years, idiot. And from what state did EITHER Hillary or Warren run for office before running in New York (where the Clintons continue to live) or Massachusetts (where Warren's lived since before you were probably born)  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #6)

Winners and losers of the 2014 election, first edition

It wasn't a mistake to support gun control laws proven to save lives, it was a mistake to not tell the truth about them while the right spread lie upon lie upon lie. Obama's spinelessness isn't "wise politics," it's just plain spinelessness. The GOP will be a disaster for the economy even if they don't push their fascist social issues (which we all know they will) "stick to the economy" you mean help the rich get richer and the poor get screwed. World affairs? God help us. You should be glad people don't typically vote on foreign affairs or Hillary will win in a landslide. "Democratic extremists had their way" you're off your goddam rocker. The Democratic Party was taken over by moderate DINOS long ago. There is nobody CLOSE to "extremist " in Democratic leadership now. Hasn't been in ages. It's been DLC moderates like Clinton and Obama and sadly will continue to be.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #29)

After A Resounding GOP Victory, 5 Tidbits That Tell The S...

Cat74--"7 new Republican Senators. 3 more likely to be Republican when the dust settles. How could that happen when the economy is doing so well?" Because the right is buying elections, because the extremist courts legalized bribery, and because low-information voters like yourself are pretending the economy isn't better when even conservative economists know it is. "It couldn't," Well, obviously it could. "and the economy is one of the reasons the Democrats lost control of the Senate, and lost another 12 House seats." Except, again, the economy IS better. "Americans know if they are doing well." There are people who care about others than just themselves. This idea that "are you better off" is all that matters is vomit. If I'm better off financially but everyone else in my town is homeless, that's not OK. It's called a conscience. It's something you on the right clearly lack. "It isn't enough to have a better economy then President Bush." Vastly improved economy, but you want to whine because it's not been improved as much as Clinton improved it...oops. "You have to have one as good as President Reagan." Except Reagan wrecked the economy. Deficit and poverty skyrocketed. See, this is the problem with discussing "the economy" with the far right, they think if the Wall Street Journal bunch is happy, "the economy is good." "In Montana the Republicans elected a Republican Senator for the first time since 1913." Montana's had loads of Republican Senators, they just called themselves Democrats. "We do not like the direction the country is heading, and we changed it." And the people will not approve of the disaster you want it to be.  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #28)

After A Resounding GOP Victory, 5 Tidbits That Tell The S...

Cat74--"We will be able to pass the Keystone Project, providing jobs for thousands." Causing massive environmental damage for not that much oil and providing TEMPORARY "jobs for thousands." If you gave a damn about jobs, you'd be pushing for alternative fuels. This is about big bucks from the oil companies, nothing else. "People will be given the opportunity to work, and provide for their families." Again, investment in alternative fuels is vastly more useful as far as this goes. But there's nothing so hypocritical as the right pretending to care about working people. "No more fantasy world, no more silly war on women." There's nothing silly about it, and you can bet your life it's not ended. There'll continue to be "personhood amendments" and other attacks on the right to choose. There'll continue to be no progress on equal pay or other equality issues. The war on women is real, and hasn't ended. "Just opportunities to make the money they need, without begging Daddy Government." Except for the corporations that beg for government to put their profits ahead of human life. Government is supposed to be for the people, you want it to be for Wall Street. Who's your daddy?  (Wednesday Nov 5 | post #25)
