    He pushed for Health Care reform when he should have focused on the fact that we just had a massive and systemic Sub-Prime Collapse.

    A health care law that would mandate higher cost for struggling Middle Class Americans in the form of higher premiums.

    A health care law that let all bussiness owners know 2 years in advanace that their cost were going to go up, but didn't allow them to quantify that cost, which caused them to stop hiring.

    Stop investing. A health Care law that was passed on a pack of lies from HIS OWN FACE.... .


    Of course he's a Liberal.

    Those above are "liberal" policies? You must have a different definition of "liberal" than the rest of us.

    Oh, I forgot. Your definition of "liberal" is "stuff Fenton doesn't like."

    Who cares what American Time thinks? While Time in every other country was covering the Egyptian revolution on their front cover, American Time was talking about some other meaningless crap. Their person of the year matters just about as much as who gets the Nobel Peace Prize at this point.

    What is with these organizations and their penchant for choosing figureheads whose total time in office is so short as to be unremarkable?

    The middle class NOW has to contend with mandated higher cost on premiums for sub-standard policies.

    Yes, we DID try to warn you and now that slice is going to get even smaller.
    I elected a junior senator?

    Not me, I didn't elect a junior senator who was still wet behind the ears, not me.

    No, it's totally the fault of the Republican Party that they couldn't even mount a campaign that could defeat said junior senator. They did pick an electable candidate in '08, and even picked the only electable candidate running in '12, but still didn't have the political savvy to get them elected. What a pathetic bunch of losers!

    It's funny how certain posters can make ANYTHING -- even a discussion about the Pope -- into some stinging rebuke of Obama. They got their marching orders down pat. "Make everything about Obama. Jump through whatever rhetorical or logical hoop you have to. Wash, rinse, repeat."

    You are correct that the middle class pie is too large in the cartoon. However, you are wrong as to the advent of this problem. Wealth has been increasingly concentrated amongst the most wealthy since the early '80s. I likely has something to do with cutting the highest marginal rate to under 50%, creating incentives for business owners and executives to take current compensation at the expense of re-investing in their businesses (including hiring employees)

    You see, he's JUST A MAN, who's entitled to his own opinions, no matter how wrong they are.

    He knows what Jesus promoted. If this conflicts with your economic views, I suggest you incorporate this into your worldview and move on.
