And the list of liberal success is what, exactly?
To be frank, if all of you partisan knuckleheads cared about America half as much as you care about your corrupt political party... our republic would stand a chance...
But almost all Americans have pledged their allegiance to a party instead of this country.
Sadly, it will be the main factor in the demise of our sovereignty as a nation.
I implore ALL of you to think about what you are accomplishing with your partisan bullsh!t. I implore you to think about how America and FREEDOM are way cooler than your corrupt political party.
Who would support a party that thinks the job of the Senate and House is to ensue the President is a one term President when he is not of their party?

The job of the Senate and House is to fund the government, provide oversight thereof and to provide new legistlation as needed. This is true regardless of who is President.

The role of the minority party in either is to help ensure that the other party does not go to far left or right and to try and incorporate their values into legistlation as they are able to do so.

Besides tax cuts for the rich.
These guys can't run on successes so they demean those who are trying to repair their damage.
What has Obama accomplished since 2008 ?

Right on, they will be telling us what time to eat, go to bed, go to poop, what time to get up, if we can nap during the day, etc. We need a change.

Obama’s accomplishments … debt, 15.5 trillion, deficits, trillion plus, youth employment 23 year low, 1out 2 college grads find employment, 1-15 Americans fall in to extreme poverty; this is what Liberals/Democrats embrace as success!!

More of the same stupid hacking at Obama by far-right fools who can't name a single accomplishment of the Republicans. Happens every time.

In case you haven't noticed you've repeated your attacks on Obama ad-nauseum. Here's your chance to proclaim Republican successes and you can't.

Same old drivel. Hilarious.

Now make some more ignorant attacks on Obama.

Stimulus stopped the slide though was not large enough to give growth a pop.

Healthcare Bill started off covering kids to age 26 on parents policy and forced insurance to take pre-existing conditions.

Wound Down Iraq.

Surge in Afghanistan.

Tax cuts for the lower and middle classes.

So far the Republican have maintained a tax cut for the rich AND offered to cut taxes by $2 Tril more instead of decreasing the deficit.

If I am not mistaken, while the President requests an increase in the debt ceiling, the House has to approve the request. Further, the House has to approve the budgets that force an increase in the debt ceiling.

That $15.5 Tril debt is a bipartisan effort since 2011, Democrat for 2009 - 2010, and Republican before that.

Not at all, it is the best that can be accomplished when Republicans are involved. Kind of like the debt.

If the President requests $X in his budget and the House and the Senate pass a budget (or spending) that equal $X plus $Y, who owns it? The House passed more spending than was requested by the President.

Was it Reagan or those free-spending Democrats in Congress?

Newt Gingrich changed the trajectory in this country. Before both sides prided themselves on bipartisanship; now it is scorned. Everyone is mean and nasty and stubborn that it seems like a bunch of spoiled brat bullies. They are there to do the peoples work and not pander to extremists and corporations. The Supreme Court sold this country with Citizens United. Welcome to fascism.

There may be a crack in the armor of the SCOTUS decision. I heard there will be a case concerning foreign corporations. The court has already ruled that foreigners in the US can not contribute. This differentiation over who can and who can not can force a reconsideration of the corporate right to free speech.

The Presidency shouldn't be sold to the highest bidder. Having to raise a billion dollars to campaign is insane. All of these old billionaires with nothing better to do than spend it on smearing someone is adding to public discord. Most people aren't bright enough to get it that it's all lies and distortion.
Perhaps the American people should just not vote at all, or sell their votes to the highest bidder to!

The only possible replacement has no idea how our government works. He thinks on day 1 he can announce budget cuts and something will happen.

I notice you avoided my question.

Another problem with the TEA Party. First they agree with the decision that corporations are people.

Second, they want their government to listen to them instead of the corporations.

Finally, they do not support ammending the Constitution to fix these problems.

About half the country supports that party... and they are just as foolish as you are for blindly following the other party.

What will it take for you to realize that they are pretty much both the same? I mean, all of you liberals are now clapping for Obama doing things that you criticized bush for.

For example: NDAA, kill list, enemy list, war mongering, war in Libya without congressional approval, patriot act, expanding and more invasive TSA, the list goes on.

If bush did any of that, I believe that you would fiercely oppose it (as you should). But Obama DID do it... so you think it's just fine. But only because the guy with the pen has a "D" instead of an "R." And that is all most Americans care about these days, a damn letter. Not the policy, just the letter.

Please don't once again completely miss the point and tell me how bad republicans are. I know. I'm not a republican. they are just as bad as democrats.

The point is that we need to evolve past this nonsense. America is fighting each other in support of the SAME BS... it's just in 2 different packages.
