    I didn't know you were empowered to speak for the American People. Congratulations! It's a big responsibility, and frankly you aren't handling it really well.

    And who empowered Obama to speak for the American People. Not me, I never voted for him. Now tell me who was Obama talking to when he said "you did not build that" that's right the American people. And guess what I have the same right as that bastard. But I will alter my comment, it was those Americans that paid taxes that built that. Now why don't you try and tell me who built that? Obama said you did not build that so who did?

    Er, that was exactly his point. Listening to the whole makes that entirely clear, the Royal We built it. A whole crapload of people’s effort went into that, even starting before you personally contributed.

    Except you left out a really important part where some of that was borrowed against future taxes, so tis time to cough it up.

But to you liberals living on borrowed money is just fine as long as you don't have to pay for it. The EPA is killing the coal industry and all the jobs but you liberals don't care about jobs, never have. I could list a long page of job killing Liberal BS. Further you love entitlements, but you hate being told you are burring this country in a mountain of debt. Why, because you believe there is no end to the money supply.
    Again, it is this kind of stupid, one-sided blanket accusation that is killing your party! And the crazy thing is you guys believe every one of it never once stopping long enough to even try to see things from the other side.

    There are people out there who are hurting NOT because of policies the President signed into law, but because of policies that were in effect BEFORE he took office. Yet, you completely ignore that reality and instead inject your own.

    Instead of acknowledging that our deficit has been increasing with each succeeding President/Congress, you lay blame squarely at the feet of this President (re: "6 trillion in just 4 yrs").

    Instead of acknowledging that Congress has either been printing money or borrowing money for years, you would rather have everyone believe that this President (and a Democrat majority in Congress from the recent past) did it all by himself (themselves).

    You point the finger at the EPA without acknowledging how the very "marketplace" you coveat has impacted the coal industry (i.e., natural gas and other low-cost alternatives energy sources slowly supplanting coal much as petrolium oil at one point supplanted whale oil).

    Look, I get that many Americans are worried about the so-called "fiscal cliff". You're worried about America's place in the world today. You're worried that we've lost our edge, that the country has gone soft in the eyes of the world particular with our "enemies". You worry that America's properity is in jeopardy, that our ability to project power has been dinimished. I get it!

    Relax!

    America is not weak.

    America will not go broke (not for real). We may be in debt up to our eyeballs, but we'll never go broke not as long as the world sees America as a commodity whether we perform as the world's top exporter as we once were post-WWII or as a leading importer. (Although you certainly want to be more of an exporter than an importer).

    The only way our enemies get to us is if we pull another Pearl Harbor or 9/11 and get complacent.

    And as far as our ability to project power, you're still thinking w/a Cold-War mentality. While we do need to be careful not to put too much stock in "digital/electronic" warfare, I think our military will continue to reassess its war-fighting capabilities and will always remain strong and fully capable of defending the homeland.

    So, relax...

    Ummm...just a guess, but right off hand I'd say...the voters!?! And I didn't vote for GWB the first time around but he was still my country's President. And that made him my President, too. I may not have liked some of the things he said or did, but I still called him "President of the United States of America" whether I agree with him or not.

    (BTW, I'll ignore the "bastard" comment. Freedom of speech gives you that right to speak your mind, but maybe it's time to seak anger management courses to help you deal with losing the election. You really do need to get a grip and accept reality. Your side loss; get over it.)

    Be clear ... I know there are many intelligent and progressive republicans that comprehend science and know that unified bodies for military and healthcare are not socialism and that regulations in industries such as banking and Wall Street are correct and right.

    I actually think most Americans are centrists with minor differences. I know I will receive flack on this statement and I have no back up or statistically significant study to back this up ... it imho.

    Intelligent thinking Americans know the Democrats are not socialists and know the Republicans are not all Rush Limbaughs ...! They just have different viewpoints on resolving some issues and hopefully all want the best decisions to grow out beautiful Democratic Republic the United States of America!

    I think both parties should join together for finance reform and to mitigate Citizens United v. FEC. Both are the antithesis of a democracy and voices for We the People!
    I only know one doctor who supports Obamacare and he is about to retire. the others are planning to retire because Obamacare was upheld. Doctors don't like having more of their income taken by parasites in government. Obama is supported by the scumbags who sue doctors as well

    Re: Bobby Jindal: GOP Should 'Stop Being The Stupid Party'

    When a Republican says something stupid, it's headline news and you will definitely hear about it. When a Democrat says something stupid, it's only repeated on Fox, and then labeled "partisan" and worthy of dismissal, if not instantly branded a lie.

    Everybody remember when Joe Biden said you can't go to a 7/11 or a Duncan Donuts without an Indian accent? "But, that's like, just off the cuff. He doesn't really mean it. It's not important. The REAL racists are all in the Republican party."

    Democrats are going to keep believing that the Republicans are the party of the stupid and intolerant, while Republicans will continue to believe that the Democrats are the party of of the lazy welfare queens. It's nice Jinadal is being proactive, but honestly, everyone seems to be a dumbass lately. They aren't confined to just one party.

    I am looking forward for Jindal to be a candidate in 2016..hopefully the stupid republican establishment doesn't block him off and try to get a "moderate" guy to come in and continue the crazy progressive side of the GOP. We must work for liberty, not political gain, and pandering.
