I understand that the members of the anti-Obama cult fail to comprehend this, but these are the facts.
    Obama is going to do whatever he can to buy votes through creating more dependence and thus greater debt from taxpayer money being spent. The fact is that the Obama record will be on the ballot in 2012 and it will be that record that will determine the results. I see nothing changing due to Obama's ideology and thus his unwillingness to compromise and efforts to continue his class warfare policies.

    At what cost to the country are you willing to support four more years of Obama? Currently there are over 25 million unemployed and under employed Americans and we have a 14.6 trillion dollar debt. So think about it?

    The GOP candidate will do whatever he can to buy more votes, by advocating for more tax cuts for the wealthy while cutting spending for the poor & middle class, who are loathed by the GOP.

    How much more spending cuts on the poor & middle-class do you think they will accept, before they finally realize that the GOP is the enemy of the working man?

    When will the members of the anti-Obama cult realize that simply hating Obama is not an intelligent campaign strategy?

    Right, tax cuts for the rich is nothing more than class warfare so that makes you a good Obama follower. Allowing people to keep more of their own money threatens liberalism and "your" President understands that. Instead of challenging how tax dollars are being spent you focus on how much tax dollars are going to the govt. Instead of holding politicians accountable for the 14.6 trillion dollar debt you have no problem sending them more money.

    Keep buying the liberal rhetoric which promotes that class warfare instead of really identifying the problem. How many of those so called poor and middle class are actually brainwashied, brain dead, and clueless? Do we really need a 3.7 trillion dollar budget to help those truly in need?

    You have certainly been brainwashed into believing the liberal rhetoric. 47% of those poor and middle class don't pay any FIT and the top 1% pay 38% of all FIT collected. What is the rich's fair share? Why aren't you holding politicians accountable for the waste, fraud, and abuse of tax dollars?

    Hochul won the conservative republican NY seat just five months ago -- when Obama's rating wasn't much worse than it is now. It was advertised as a referendum on the Ryan budget and Republicans' destroy-Medicare plan.

    New York's 26th congressional district special election, 2011 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    The district is traditionally a safe Republican seat, having been continuously represented by Republicans since Jack Kemp's election in 1970. Democrats had made serious, but unsuccessful, attempts to gain the seat with self-financed candidate Jack Davis in 2004 and 2006 as well as Alice Kryzan in 2008, but nominated only token opposition in 2010 when Philip Fedele ran.




    Hmmm...looks like a Democrat won a seat in a traditionally GOP district, and was so for 40 years. Just another referendum on Obama, huh?

    And who's gonna beat Obama? Right now, the front runner for the GOP is Perry, and polls show that Obama beats Perry. And if employment numbers continue the current trend, it's only going to get worse for Perry. You spent an entire thread railing against Obama because there were no jobs created last month according to payroll data (even though you never reference payroll data, ever) ... but last month Perry lost jobs in Texas according to payroll data.

    I'm not sure the unemployment situation will work that much against Obama. Many of those who remain unemployed became that way under Bush or shortly after Obama became president. Sure they may be disappointed at efforts to get employment up, but I don't see the majority voting for either Romney or Perry - two very flawed candidates. President Obama has much going for him and in fact said just the other day his chances of winning in 2012 are better than the were in 2008.

    Both parties are just as dependent on buying votes -- they only differ in their constituency.

    Sort of like all that government money that goes out to defense contractors, farmers, bankers, and so on.

    No, it's all about how he spins it, just like the Republican's primary opportunity to win is spinning his record in the opposite direction. They don't have a concrete plan for getting us out of this mess any more than the President does. Everybody in Washington is playing musical chairs -- they keep running around and around and around the core issues, and their only hope is that when the music stops, their ass will be in a seat. Their first concern isn't fixing anything.

    Where's the Republican plan to get us out of this? Which of the field of Presidential candidates have presented any specifics?
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
