    that is beyond dispute-given that Obunny rejects any plan that actually raises revenue but doesn't raise rates on the two percent

    For you and I, that actually look into "alternative" news/views, that makes a difference. For far too many that is not even considered. Many think that what ever the late night comedy entertainers offers is "news". If you ever catch a peek at "Waters world" (on Fox newws), or other "man on the street" interviews, it is truely scary what people "know" about the current events, much less history.

    He and his gang of progressive bullies are rubbing conservative noses in it. Or at least so he thinks. If repubs played this correctly, Obama, and progressives will be responsible for relegating them back under that rock from which they crawled for another 100 years.

    I love how you pretend to talk for some many people. Most of them really aren't all that into the class struggle thing that power hungry liberal agitators live for

    I think the RNC should spend $100M for the rest of December put ads on the air showing nothing but Obama playing in the Hawaiian surf every damn day in all 57 states. They should flood the airwaves with ads showing that bastard doing nothing while New Yorkers starve with no heat.

    Moot point, considering he can't raise the rates himself. The nature of our government is cooperation/negotiation between the Executive and both houses of Congress.

    I'd pull out all the stops, I'd do it Democrat style. I'd have grandmas lining up in soup kitchens, I'd have naked babies lying on sidewalks as floodwaters buildup. I'd have kindergarteners eating out of dumpsters, and then scenes of Obama drinking martinis on the beach.
