Obama is a socialist loser like the Europeans. All the window dressing like this stunt in the world won't help him. He destroys the building business with barney, Dodd, and Bernanke, then he makes this stupid little weak-ass concession. He's like the fireman that starts a forest fire so he can look like the hero as he fights it. Obama and the socialists makes me physically ill.

These right-wing republicans are the most disgustingly unpatriotic bastards; they boo a soldier that was in Iraq putting his life on the line and they boo a soldier and his family along with the First Lady and the Vice-President’s wife.

FTN,
He has made tax cuts for millions of Americans, more than even Bush.

Got a point? use facts.

Like where the money came from that paid for the cuts.

Of course they all voted for it in the end; the GOP may be anti-veteran but they're not politically suicidal.

The Republicans tried to kill this bill every way possible in both the House & Senate, but were finally forced to allow a vote on it.

WeTheSheeple,
Not even close. Obama's jobs bill is a package of sub-prime junk bond type bs using the vets portion as flash in an attempt to sell the entire package.

FTN,
True, but Obama's responsibility is not in creating the problem, just sustaining it.

Had repairing past damage been a goal or even an objective, the situation would be far better than it is now. Consumers need a stable environment and that is not in the current game plan. All of the trough feeders are in reelection mode, nothing will change.

Rich won't yield and neither will the poor.

The middle class will continue to shrink and ignorant partisans will continue to believe they are right.

The military and vets vote 80% republican, which is why big Al tried to stifel the votes of Florida's military in 2000. The vets know government handouts don't last forever. Real jobs are created by repbulicans, the proof is between the red states job creation and blue states non job creation. Try to keep up, sheepie.

True dat, SJO.

However, the prosperity, security, and futures that the Kenyan lizard has, is, and will continue to thieve and destroy is very, very real.

At any rate, until 11/12, it'll be all aboard the "lie train" as the smelly kenyan commie horse's caboose continues doing the only thing he's good at.

What does Obama want?--- July 29, 2011
http://hotair.com/greenroom/archives/2011/07/...

Q: What does Obama want?

A: He wants a huge, and permanent, increase in the size of government. This is the “change” he campaigned on, but never really described. The goal was to make the US into a European-style “Social Democracy”.
______

Q: Does he really think he can finance it indefinitely with huge deficits?

A: Of course not. The plan was to corner the Republicans and force them to agree to huge tax increases in order to pay for it. So spending was raised first, and eventually the Republicans would face the choice of raising taxes or having the national debt spiral up to clearly unsustainable levels.
______

Q: Are Democrats in the House and Senate on board with this plan?

A: Mostly they are.
______

Q: Why haven’t they been honest about it?

A: Because they know that the majority of American voters would object. They’re trying to sneak the program through, relying on the fact that once it’s in place it will create its own constituency.
______

Q: Why haven’t the Democrats passed a budget for the last two years?

A: Because if they did, the cat would be out of the bag. It would be impossible to hide their real agenda if it was all down in black-and-white.
______

Q: And Obamacare is part of this?

A: Yup. The real goal all along was “single payer”, but that wasn’t legislatively possible even in a D-majority congress. So the bill was set up so that private insurers would continue, but the terms which would be forced on them would make them “voluntarily” leave the market. With no insurers remaining, the Democrats would then “reluctantly” pass a single-payer system.
______

Q: Is this something new?

A: Hardly. It’s the continuation of a process that began with FDR, and made huge gains with LBJ’s “Great Society”. Reagan tried to reverse it but failed.(Also, Reagan had other things to worry about, like winning the Cold War.)
______

Q: Is Obama going to win on this?

A: Your time is up. Please insert another quarter.

The ”Military Times Poll,” conducted by the publishers of the Army Times and the independent newspapers of the three other major services, also found that most of the active-duty military considers itself very much a breed apart, morally superior to both US society and its civilian leadership.

Oh see the red vote in the charts. Does Nuet see the red votes in the chart???

Red votes are republican.

Do most Americans trust the Military times for the truth than ABC left leaning news??

No doubt.

Did Big Al try to stifel the votes of the military in Florida in 2000. Most assuradly. By the book and read it yourself and discover what a vile dishonest crook he really is.

Republican operatives like Governor Marc Racicot of Montana declared that Gore and the Democrats had “declared war” on American soldiers and sailors overseas.

The bulk of these disqualifications, however, were not due to supposed technicalities, but to gross irregularities such as voting in the wrong county, voting while unregistered, voting more than once (many overseas absentees in Florida were sent two ballots and returned them both, but only one was counted) or the absence of a signature attesting to the voter's identity. After the Bush campaign filed a blizzard of lawsuits and most counties rechecked the overseas ballots, only a few hundred votes were restored out of the over 1,500 disqualified.

Even these votes included major irregularities, such as votes postmarked or witnessed after Election Day, ballots which arrived after the November 17 deadline, and even ballots that were faxed in. One county election supervisor admitted that, in response to Republican protests, she had done exactly what the Republicans claimed to oppose:“It changed from following strict adherence to statutory law to a more general interpretation based on new information, basically,'' said Stephanie Thomas, assistant supervisor of elections in Clay County.

Moral to this story. Republicans think voter fraud is OK if it is a Republican who is committing the fraud. Meanwhile that Republican lady in Palm Beach who lived in one Palm Beach precinct, voted in another Palm Beach precinct, while registered to vote in both NY and CT was never prosecuted. Why, because she was a Republican.
