    In the meantime, you are absolutely correct to ignore all GOP organized election fraud, including jamming phone lines in NH on election day, handing out bogus fliers with the wrong date of the election on them, etc.

    'Pubs: it's different when we ACTUALLY do it!

    One success: OBL is dead. Oh, right, you guys either don't think that's a success OR it's "the SEALS" did that. Obama really was wrong, and we were wrong, to cheer him as he performed that "I got him!/Mission Accomplished" aircraft carrier landing! Btw, what was the military team that got Hussein? Don't know, huh? Me neither. All attention and praise was heaped on Bush.

    Success: DOW is back at the record level of 14,000. Wait, that isn't Obama's doing, right?

    Succeess: Jobs are being created, not shed. Wait....(fill in here with some convoluted argument)

    Success: America's no longer reviled as we were under Bush and Cheney by our allies. Wait: false! Because I say so!

    Success: The Washington Monthly - The Magazine - Obama’s Top 50 Accomplishments

    Btw, what's up with you folks just SAYIN" stuff and believing it?

    Clarence Thomas???? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! I wouldn't be a-braggin' about Clarence Thomas if I were you.

    That guy is really, really weird.
    Wow, your'e one of the easiest libs I've had the pleasure of educating.

    Yes, massive voter fraud in Ohio, Kayahoga County. Try accessing a real news site and not "Z-Facts" or MSNBC for a change.

    Yea Bin Ladens dead and Obama spiked the football and millions of Americans are still unemployed with your President trying to legalize millions more to compete for jobs that arent there.

    Funny you guys celebrate the water tourture now that was used and led to BinLadens where abouts.

    THE DOW ??!! Hahahahahah...you show yourself to be a true Obama voter at least once in every one of your post.

    You Libs are so limited to an ACTUAL success you are now celebrating the rich getting richer. Any way, back to your limited undwrstanding of our economic system.

    The Dows at 14000 because Obamas Fed is injecting 85 billion dollars a month into bonds and MBS. ITS BEING FALSELY INFLATED BY A DESPERATE AND FOOLISH FED POLICY TO ATTEMPT TO KICK START A DYING ECONOMY.

    You see, the Dows climb is indicative of a very serious situation that involves inflating our bond value and then pulling the rug out from under the bond market. you'll see, and you'll pathetically blame it on Bush.

    Not that you understand whats happening, if you did you wouldn't be a Obama supporter.

    Jobs ? Why do you guys always forget to mention the nearly 9 million jobs that have exited all together from the economy ? People that have given up ?

    Forgot ? You wouldn't have forgotten under Bush.

    You wouldnt have left off the 1 in 6 Americans in poverty, the disasterous unemployment rates for Black Americans. The 50 million people on food stamps. the rising cost of dependence in General. The shrinking GDP.

    And Clarence Thomas ? What do you have against an actual successful black man ?

    It seems to be a good thing that the Democrats are finally beginning to acknowledge their decades of racism but now, instead of looking for remedies, they are now trying to make the claim that the Dems suddenly saw the light and the Republicans, for some unknown reason and after fighting racism for more than a century, suddenly and without notice, became the party of racists. This is pure craziness.

    There is no evidence of this whatsoever, and it is the Democrats, just as their history demonstrates, who are always fixated on race rather than people.

    You think there is no evidence of institutionalized racism in the GOP???


    Wow. Are you serious? Or do you just have your head in the sand? That'd do it.

    Ah, yes, Bill Clinton, the first Black President.

    Well, you make some very astute points here, and considering the US started as soon as Obama became president...okay, okay, that's overstating it a bit...considering the US was a veritable Utopia because Obama got his hands on it and there was no poverty and everyone was employed, making fabulous wages with incredible benefits and no one was on foodstamps and people went on foodstamps only because obama became president and yes, any success of Obama is simply redifined as a failure...your'e right. No successes.

    I have nothing against successful black people. I have a lot against Clarence Thomas, and it has nothing to do with the color of his skin. Or do you believe that a black man merely succeeding in terms of a paycheck and/or stature (whether deserved or not) is enough? THAT is racism.

    Do you always make these charges without offering up any evidence for them? I'm really not interested in these juvenile responses.

    Okay. Don't read it. Your arguments do work better when you're not informed. I happen to agree with you there. See? Common ground!

    Know thyself, and know thine own party. No sane person claims the GOP doesn't have a serious problem with racism.

    No, every President is responsible for the economic activity of his term.

    You want to mitigate Obama's failure by dragging in "The Great Recession" then be my guest. Its disingenuos to say the least.

    Obamas policies have perpetuated the recession and his policies have led to a world finanial crisis that involves many nations.

    You guys need to realize when our economy suffers so does that of every major Western style run Nation.

    And for what ? So he can blindly carry out his personal vendettas and stick to a ideology thats proven to be bankrupt.

    You think ObamaCare is going to do good things ? Or that our economy is going to improve ?

    No way.

    As for racism in terms of political party, referring back to make some point about the present is absurd. The FACT is, the GOP has a rather serious problem with racism, as does the US, and it's actually gotten worse over the last four years of Obama's presidency, and you'd best believe it is conservative angst that has risen to the surface.

    Fix your OWN party. You're the only ones who can.
    You WISH the GOP had racist issues anf try and propagandize that desire, bit in reality it's the Democrats that have done far more to keep black folks down.
