    Critic: "it was wrong"
    Obamalemming: "so what? Bush lied."


    So, wasn't this Obama brand supposed to be better than the other brands? Wasn't this brand critical of the brand before?

    But it seems he has adopted all the worst of his predecessors [except getting caught getting his knob polished in the Oval Office] and that's OK because Bush, Bush, Reagan, Eisenhower, and Nixon did it too.

    That kind of reads to me like the LOWEST common denominator as opposed to what was promised as a highest common denominator.
    For the die hards of both parties the debate goes, Is too, Is not, Is too, Is not. Yeah. Integrity, honesty, common virtues have been replaced by the attitude of I am the elite and I know what is best for you. You are too dumb to figure what is good and bad for you by yourself.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Man, the progressives are so quick to troll a post with accusations of "talking points" and here we have a classic case.

    I was in a union in television, they said I could not be paid what the company had agreed to pay me because I was new.

    The court said otherwise.

    FFS, your communistic bull**** gets tiresome. How about chanting "workers of the world unite!" and sing solidarity forever. The world has changed, the concepts you spew are what destroyed your automobile industry. In the 21st century some of us have learned that merit trumps seniority and the result is a superior product, like the foreign cars that destroyed Detroit.

    Solidarity Forever! Eat the rich! Down tools, why work when we can get drunk on picket line?
    Oh, yeah, of course, unions where put in place as a reason to pay people less...

    A progressive troll, moi? I'm sure there are about oh, uh, several dozen people on this sight who are scratching their heads on this one.

    does it get tiresome? I know what I find tiresome, half witted comments based off half assed thoughts. That bores the hell out of me.

    Good day.

    Union bosses that generate not one red penny to the profit of a company certainly are doing well. Why isn't that discussed

    It's not ignoring it. The local (municipal and county) and state elections are carried out by the exact same people electing US Senators and Reps. Do you not understand that? If you go to the polls you vote local, state, and US all at the same time. So how does this change the nature of the voter turn out? Sour grapes? Hardly. It's not the end of the world nor is it the beginning of a new one. You folks that play in this "Us against Them" game of American politics can have your victory parties and gloat, or wallow in despair. I don't care. It will swing back eventually. Either way I can't care. Nothing is going to change in two years.

    Unions are Big Business, as much as any Corporation they criticize.

    Heya Pero. It appears Howard Dean has had enough.




    Liberal Civil War Continues: Howard Dean Calls Obamacare Architects Elitist......


    Within 24 hours of the 2014 midterm election results pouring in, handing the Senate over to Republicans, outgoing Majority Leader Harry Reid unleashed his chief-of-staff to the Washington Post where he slammed the Obama White House for the Democrat bloodbath.

    The problem is not that he said it. The problem is that he thinks it. The core problem under the damn law is it was put together by a bunch of elitists two don’t fundamentally understand the American people. That’s what the problem is," Dean said in response to Gruber's comments on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

    It should be noted that when Dean talks about Gruber not "fundamentally understanding Americans," he's referring to those in his far-left base who want single-payer healthcare. Regardless, the civil war and the sniping within the Democrat party continues.....snip~

    LOL, yeah. Either the Democrats in congress thought the voters were stupid or they thought the voters had such short memories they would forget the Democrats went against the peoples wishes with the ACA was first passed. I think the people let it be known they didn't want it. Thanks to RCP, the polls when the law was first passed are below:

    Below are the polls thanks to RCP of public opinion on the ACA when the Senate passed it in November of 2009
    CNN/Opinion Research 12/2-12/3 36% for 61% Against/Oppose +25
    Rasmussen Reports 11/29 - 11/29 41% for 53% Against/Oppose +12
    Gallup 11/20-11/22 44% for 49% Against/Oppose +5
    Ipsos/McClatchy 11/19 - 11/22 34% for 46% Against/Oppose +12
    Rasmussen Reports 11/21 - 11/22 38% for 56% Against/Oppose +18
    FOX News 11/17 - 11/18 35% for 51% Against/Oppose +16
    PPP (D) 11/13 - 11/15 40% for 52% Against/Oppose +12

    Below are the polls thanks to RCP of public opinion on the ACA when the House passed it in March of 2010
    Bloomberg 3/19 - 3/22 38% for 50% Against/Oppose +12
    CNN/Opinion Research 3/19 - 3/21 39% for 59% Against/Oppose +20
    CBS News 3/18 - 3/21 37% for 48% Against/Oppose +11
    Rasmussen Reports 3/19 - 3/20 41% for 54% Against/Oppose +13
    Quinnipiac 3/16 - 3/21 36% for 54% Against/Oppose +18
    Democracy Corps (D) 3/15 - 3/18 40% for 52% Against/Oppose +12
    FOX News 3/16 - 3/17 35% 55% Against/Oppose +20

    I think the above polls says it all. The Democrats told the very people whom elected to stick it where the sun don't shine. The Democrats were the elite who knows best for the masses, the masses are dumb and stupid and do not have to be listen for. Let the elite make all the decision for them.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line.

    Not any more amazing than folks that don't care if their rich lawyer gets even richer as long as they get a decent settlement out of the case.

    Gimme some of that popcorn, MMC. From your link...
    Now, after comments from Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber surfaced showing the administration lied to "stupid" Americans in order to get the legislation passed, former Democrat Presidential candidate and DNC Chairman Howard Dean is calling the architects of the law "elitist" who don't "fundamentally understand Americans."

    "The problem is not that he said it. The problem is that he thinks it. The core problem under the damn law is it was put together by a bunch of elitists two don’t fundamentally understand the American people. That’s what the problem is,"
