    Tell them to their face ? What are you eleven years old ? Yes, you Libs, which would include Obama and his ilk . demagogue issues and use the blood of innocents to push a very old liberal agenda. Gun control.

    Obviously those in the gallery agree with Obama's nonsensical gun control regulation that would do nothing to stop gun violence by criminals. Also cold is again, using the deaths of 20 innocent children to push a gun agenda. Enough of your false concern.

    LOL !!! Losing what ? The collapse in 2008 was due to liberal democrat HUD and CRA regulations put on lending institutions and the GSEs that caused them to lower their underwriting standards and buy up massive amounts of toxic debt. It's over your head I know but it's the truth.

    Millions of abject morons elected the least qualified candidate in 2008 to come in and address the collapse of the Democrat mandated bubble. He passed a horrible health care law, and gave public sector unions and bankrupt green energy companies billions and lied about shovel ready jobs. So after hearing you and your ilk whine about " Bush the idiot" your solution was to elect an ACTUAL idiot who created a massive structural debt and increased dependency and has a shrinking economy to show for it.

    Nice...

    No, the difference between you and me is you feign concern over dead children and Teachers to push your agenda and you legitimize it by making ridiculous statements like... " blood drenched psycho that runs it "

    I actually DO care about the safety of our citizens and would allow law abiding people to defend themselves and also armed security guards in schools. You see I DONT want more dead children, you and Obama see it as an opportunity. I imagined more than a few high fives going around the white house when the body count came in.

    Classy...

    Your so ignorant of so much, it's what makes you a Liberal. Obama's at 16 trillion and counting with 1 trillion dollar defecits, a rising dependent class, a shrinking economy, with the Fed pumping out billions every month , monetizing our debt and inflating the bond market. 8,500,000 people have disappeared out of the work force. Those jobs are gone.

    Health care is rising, Banks and corporations are holding on to their reserves and capital because only an idiot would invest in Obama's economy. In 2008 the Fed started paying banks interest on their reserves, ( the money THEY HAVE TO HAVE ON HAND BY LAW ) So under Obama's FED nominee has encouraged the banks NOT to lend by paying them interest on they're massive reserves.

    The Fed also controls the amount of reserves banks get to hold. With massive spending 900 billion last quarter and massive capital injections the economy shrank. You have nothing to brag about, your President is destroying the economy.

    The Dow ? That's what you point too ? ... It's ironic that Libs are so desperate in cherry picking out any good economic data they are no cheering the rich getting richer. Do you understand WHY the DOW is at 14,000 ? It's called capital injections by the Fed on a short term basis by spending 85 billion a month on MBS and Treasuries...

    The Fed's Bond buying is going to stop this year, they've done everything they know how to to spur a recovery but alas, really gullible simple people elected Obama twice and our economy will continue to shrink with world wide economic implications. Germany's economy shrank, that's just in. Spain, Italy Greece. These are the poster children of the Liberal movement. And it's nothing but a continuation of mediocrity and misery.

    Don't preach to me about cold heartedness when your "limitations" have been hoisted upon the shoulders of so many American families struggling under Obama's shrinking economy and exploding debt to make ends meet. You voted for hium, your complicit in their prolonged misery as Obama focus's on "gun control"

Just another morally bereft Liberal who's too egocentric to grasp basic economic principles and who's chosen to act concerned over the deaths of innocent women and children just to push a gun control debate. You don't "care" unless there is blood, I care enough to allow them there right to defend themselves.

    Liberals lie, they're typically selfish and sad and angry little people. You guys quit counting dead soldiers and crying about the war when Obama took over, your ILK lowered the flags for Whitney Houston's drug overdose but when a decorated sniper loses his life trying to help a fellow soldier deal with PTSD your expectantly quiet.

I can't believe this
    Do you not understand the minimum wage is what establishes the ‘poverty level’? By changing the minimum wage we will merely move the poverty level and the same ‘class’ of earners will remain under the poverty level…consider the hourly wage for the current poverty level for ONE is $5.52. Considering this is it your assertion that a family should be able to thrive off one minimum wage income?

    Since most people are making more, what you're saying is let the rest go to hell. Why??? Why would you advocate that. Obama and Romney BOTH agreed that the minimum wage should be attached to inflation. If we did that, people would be making more money and less dependent on welfare. By keeping them where they are, you're forcing them to take assistence. Or do you want them out on the street?
    I do agree that MW (if we MUST have it) be adjusted to inflation/cpi/whatever but since it is often argued (by ‘lefties’) that there has been no recent inflation surge AND that MW has kept up with inflation since ~1990 (both from increases and monetary policy) it would be no different if linked TODAY (check it out at below links). This would have no effect on the assistance you refer to as MANY who are currently garnering it make above the minimum income now…

    Bush lies? Anything to divert from the Obama failures? By the way, Democrats controlled the Senate and voted 76-23 to authorize the force to remove Saddam Hussein. Again the leftwing sites make you look foolish. Have you no pride?

    Look at all these Bush lies? I particularly love the Bush lies prior to 2001 when he was Governor of TX and how many in the Clinton Administration bought those lies, right?

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."
    - Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Jan. 23. 2003 |

    "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
    - Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002 |

    "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
    - President Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998 |

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
    - President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998 |

    "We must stop Saddam from ever again jeopardizing the stability and security of his neighbors with weapons of mass destruction."
    - Madeline Albright, Feb 1, 1998 |

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
    - Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998 |

    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
    Letter to President Clinton.
    - (D) Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, others, Oct. 9, 1998 |

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    - Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998 |

    "Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
    - Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999 |

    "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them."
    - Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002 |

    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
    - Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002 |

    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
    - Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002 |

    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
    - Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002 |

    "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."

    - Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002 |

    "There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
    - Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002 |

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    - Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002 |

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    - Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002 |

    It must be exhausting to support a ideology that is built on a foundation of lies, blame, deception and ignorance.

    But at it's best that's essentially what Liberalism is. The destructive policies and changes they pit into place have to wrapped in falsehoods and BS because in the light of day those changes or policies cant stand on their own merit.

    And now we see the results of just the threat and inevitabillity of those changes taking place.

    And its more suffering, chronic unemployment, increased Govt dependency and an exploding debt and defecit.

    Their explanation ? A cowardly and pathetic blaming of a man who hasn't been in the white house for over four years.

    They perpetuate fallacies and talking points to try and convince theirselves of their superiority.

    For them ideology and blind allegiance take priority over truth and integrity.

    For us truth defines our ideology, not the other way around.

    They're desperately defensive now because its so apparent that voting in a egocentric media creation to run our Country was about the stupidist decision anyonz could make.

And it was conservatives that did everything they could to keep it that way. There never would have been a civil rights movement if there hadn't been segregation and discrimination in the first place. It took an Act of Congress to change that because if theres anything a conservative wants its maintaining existing institutions. First it was slavery, then Jim Crow, Segregation. Poll taxes. Denying women the right to make decisions over their own health issues. Denying Gays the same rights as straights. Right, people should live in any manner they choose. So why don't conservatives just get out of the way?

    I hope the hard numbers didn't pee on your one-lib parade here. The truth can be painful, eh ?

    You go BARACK !! You da MAN !!!!! Let's have more of this kinda success !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Since 2007, the Senate Historical Office has shown, Democrats have had to end Republican filibusters more than 360 times, a historic record. If conservatives would get out of the fkg way, maybe we could get something done. It's all about obstructionism with the conservatives. Until then, the number of people needing food stamps will increase, and more people will be looking for work. Here's a suggestion: Instead of putting up one abortion bill after another, try putting up a jobs bill. Remember Boehner saying it was jobs jobs jobs?? What do they do. Abortion, planned parenthood. What the hell do those have to do with jobs??

    you are attempting to conflate the minimum wage with a living wage ... other than being defined in monetary terms, they are quite different
    Poverty is considered around $14,000. $9 is over $17.

    Right that's it. It's all a great plot. Why don't you quit the cynical garbage, and think about it from the perspective of the wage earner for a change? We're seeing the greatest increase in corporate profits ever, and you're concerned about Wal-Mart paying $9/hr? That would take 700,000 Wal-Mart employees out of poverty and those people would have more money to spend back into the economy. 700,000. And that's just WalMart.
