    Yes.

    I am also aware that the antics sell newpapers and tv ads.

    And am capable of seeing through the smoke to what they're really trying to accomplish.

    I haven't really heard anything new from the right in the thirty years I've been paying attention. New talking points. Same exact ideas.

    Hippy clothes were in fashion in the nineties. And will be again. Fashion is cyclical.

    And frankly, economics is WAY too much like astrology for my taste. Especially the kind that says completely free markets would solve all our problems and hold no peril whatsoever. Don't buy that for a minute. I can see the negatives of over regulation etc., but don't trust people not to abuse ANY system, and don't see any way totally free markets wouldn't result in corporate feudalism.

    The report was that Obama was a Grinch. And it was a coordinated attack... um, I mean report.

    The only way you can not get it is to not want to get it; of course, that was obvious several posts ago.
    Why wouldn't the federal government increasing taxes and increasing government spending not be national news? There are a lot of people that care about 15 cents being added to the price of a christmas tree. There are stories that the obama admin is rethinking it. Think they woul dhave backed down if no one cared? The first I heard about it was here, and I didn't like the increased tax/spending- so I am not some supposed victim of propaganda as those on the left think everyone that disagrees with them must be.

    P.S. I think it would be fun to be a lefty for just a day or two. That way I too can know what it's like to get so upset by such silly things as Fox reporting on a new tax and Fox calling the group formerly known as Acorn by the Acorn name. Oh, the fun we would have.

    Oh and to know the government with all of its power is going to take care of me. Tuck me in at night, read me stories. Ahhh...what it would be like to live in a society with no responsibilities or repercussions for my actions. I'm with you buck.

    Obama tends to blink in the face of the right wing hate machine (Fox, et al). It is one of his failings.

    Hang on to that if you prefer it over the obvious conclusion that a lot of people don't want the increased tax so he had to back away.

    ACORN caught red-handed, but not guilty. Cain caught with nothing but allegations, yet guilty.

    Yes because sexual assault = paying a homeless guy to sit at a rally.

    Are you serious? You didn't even properly address what I said. It's a matter of actual evidence. So people shredding documents isn't more wrong than people merely alleging something? Glad you exposed your illogic.

    I just don't see a comparison. I don't care if ACORN paid 20 homeless guys to go sit at Wall Street. It didn't really help anything anyway - though it is a misappropriation of funds and somewhat shady (though I am all for giving the homeless a few bucks). A further investigation may need to go into that. Herman Cain, as well, is innocent until proven guilty. It is unfortunate for him, however, that those allegations from years back are coming back to haunt him.

    Any person who says either camp is guilty is full of ****, since they have not been proven guilty of anything - that includes you. But comparing sexual assault to hiring homeless people to sit at a rally is just nonsense.
