    Oh, how very cute of you two....Here I'll quote an obvious hero of yours here, Robert Gibbs: "Although you may be entitled to your own opinions, as misguided as they may be, you are not entitled to your own facts"...

    Remember this:

    Republicans invited Obama to appear at their annual conference; the president accepted — and then surprised them by asking that cameras and reporters be allowed into the room.

    Republicans immediately agreed to the request, but they may be regretting it now.
    Again and again, Obama turned the Republicans questions against them — accusing them of obstructing legislation for political purposes and offering solutions that won’t work.

    "I've read your legislation. I take a look at this stuff. And the good ideas we take," Obama said. "It can't be all or nothing, one way or the other … If we put together a stimulus package in which a third of it is tax cuts that normally you guys would support, and support for states and the unemployed and helping people stay on COBRA, that certainly your governors would support … and maybe there are some things in there, with respect to infrastructure, that you don't like … If there's uniform opposition because the Republican caucus doesn't get 100 percent or 80 percent of what you want, then it's going to be difficult to get a deal done, because that's not how democracy works."

    House Minority Leader John Boehner, who introduced Obama to his colleagues and gave the president a stack of Republican policy proposals, said afterward that the event had been “a good first step in having more of a dialogue.”

    Arizona Rep. Jeff Flake said the event had helped his party by showing that Republicans have offered alternatives to Obama’s plans.

    It just isn't honest for liberals to be saying now that Republicans have offered nothing, no alternatives, when Obama himself said that he receives these alternatives from them, reads them, then steals what he can from them.

    This is but one example.

    nonsense, voter turnout on aug 3 was 23%

    NEWS RELEASE: Unofficial Missouri primary turnout was 23% - Boonville, MO - Boonville Daily News

    very normal for an offyear primary

    indeed, this year 579,000 red show me's showed up, compared to a depressed and deflated 318,000 dems

    that's a ratio of 1.82 to 1

    Say things without backing them up... pro-bipart... sometimes it is obvious, and the Journolists require time to report the obvious, like a puppy that shat himself... their noses have to be dragged through the poop to discover what is what.

    They hoped for change amongst the electorate, like the good propagandists they are... now some it seems, some Journolists have had weak moments (see below).

    Even America's liberal elites concede that Obama's Presidency is crumbling

    Political handicappers now say it is conceivable that the Republicans could also win the 10 seats they need to take back the Senate. Not since 1930 has the House changed hands without the Senate following suit.

    Is this a piece from National Review, The Weekly Standard, The Wall Street Journal or Fox News.com, all major conservative news outlets in the United States? No. It’s a direct quote from yesterday’s Washington Post, ...
    ROTFLOL... and Obama just added fuel to the fire with his remarks about taxation.

    We got what we voted for. An empty suit with some slogans short enough so he didn't have to read them from a telepromteur.

    In less than a couple months... the first step in correcting this travesty time will have been executed.

    Pro-bipartisan:

    You wanted evidence, the bad news keeps trickling in.
    To paraphrase Harry Reid, "Your war is lost."

    2010 Is ‘Gone,’ Says Big-Time Dem

    “He cannot save 2010,” the big-time Democrat is saying of Barack Obama. “It is gone. He must now concentrate on saving 2012. But the biggest fear of some of those close to him is that he might not really want to go on in 2012...

    In my experience, the big-time Democrat has hardly ever been wrong. He does not dislike President Obama. On the contrary, like most big-time Democrats, he worked hard for his election in 2008 and would much rather see Democrats hold onto Congress this Nov. 2 than lose.

    He just doesn’t think it’s going to happen...

    “There is going to be a total wipeout, and it is totally going to be in Obama’s lap,” he said....

    Obama's electoral coalition is crumbling - Los Angeles Times

    obama's coalition which got him elected---blacks, hispanics, women, youths and burbers---pew, as cited by the LA times, finds support in 4 of those 5 groups is plummeting ala independents

    asked to describe the presidential putz in one word the most common response is, "disappointing"

    interviewees' observations reveal the truth is getting out, the public (even ex coalition cronies) is on to THE MAN

    "hoodwinked by a smooth talking politician"

    "let down"

    probably because of my "lofty expectations" and "naivety"

    "an absolutely fantastic campaigner" who "doesn't have the skill to legislate, to build coalitions"

    a "preacher-poet-professor," he "does not have the skill to bring people in"

    "leadership skills have been lacking"

    he "seems to dismiss opinions that differ with his vision"

    "we were told the influence of lobbyists would be blunted, it has not been"

    "we were told that obama would find a way to work in a bipartisan fashion"

    "we were told he would go line by line thru the budget and get rid of wasteful spending"

    "it really comes down to the individual," meaning THE MAN, ie, barry

    what's there to disagree with?

    embarrassed yet?

    Embarrassed? No, not really, since Obama's ratings mirror Reagan's ratings during his second year in office. But then I must admit I'm embarrassed that I voted for Reagan, twice.

    It's uncanny.

    ROTFL. Yeah, the difference is so fundamental, Ronnie raised payroll taxes on the middle class, increased the size of government and lowered taxes for the wealthy which resulted in the largest budget deficit since WW2 turning the US from the largest creditor nation, to the largest debtor nation in the world.

    In 1981, Reagan significantly reduced the maximum tax rate, which affected the very wealthy, and lowered the top marginal tax rate from 70% to 50%; in 1986 he further reduced the rate to 28%.[15] As a result of all this, the budget deficit and federal debt increased considerably: debt grew from 33.3% of GDP in 1980 to 51.9% at the end of 1988 [16] and the deficit increased from 2.7% in 1980 to more than double in 1983, when it reached 6%; in 1984, 1985 and 1986 it was around 5%.[17] In order to cover new federal budget deficits, the United States borrowed heavily both domestically and abroad, raising the national debt from $700 billion to $3 trillion,[18] and the United States moved from being the world's largest international creditor to the world's largest debtor nation.[19] Reagan described the new debt as the "greatest disappointment" of his presidency.[18]
