    Re: Michele Bachmann announces presidential campaign

    I loved her ludicrous claim that 800,000 jobs will BE KILLED, and she cited the CBO report, which actually said simply that people who are currently working just for healthcare purposes will leave the labor force on their own.

    What was the context? Or, are you afraid to tell us?

    ... she said "Obamacare will kill 800,000 jobs" did you watch the debate? I watched it twice. Please actual go after the argument rather than try to play Palin.

    Ohhhhhh, Obamacare will kill 800,000 jobs. I see. Well, isn't the current projection much higher than that?

    Read the link. It's not going to kill any jobs. Some people who are currently working just to get healthcare will leave the labor force on their own. You have proven that you are a total partisan hack and a failure at debating anything.

    That would bother me too. Kind of reminds me of two (not one but two) couples I know that always have to point out their foster kids. I get if it comes up in questions, conversations, etc. But to point that out from jump? It bugs me

    In fact, a Palin fan eluded to Palin being "more of a woman" than me a few minutes ago... I have seen Rush and other talking heads make similar points.
    My goodness if they go on that? Michelle Duggar should be our 1st Female Prez.

    JimBob would never allow that though as he must be King at all times.
