    Time will tell if the GOP get's with the program or not.
    Speaking of denial. Barack Obama has collected nearly twice as much money as John McCain - NY Daily News

    Obama and his Economic Advisor Jeff Immelt, Chairman of General Electric send union jobs to China

    and where do you think all that 'stimulus' money was going to if not big business? Check out who's getting the billions in solar and wind businesses. and other profitable scams from the American taxpayer. Al Gore is just one of the many Democrats who have made billions duping their own fellow travelers.

    In fact, Wall Street bought and paid for Obama's Presidency, and there's a reason every level of his Administration looks like a "Who's Who" at Goldman Sachs...........

    Have you noticed since "Bank Reform," everyone's complaining about new fees, while the banks are sitting on record profits....?

    Let's not forget that B.O. was RAISED by a rich, 1%er bank Vice President..........

    I can think of a handful way worse.
    I disagree! I think its quite shrewd. After all, he is merely appealing to his base: the hysterically ignorant

    Nothing like being lose with the facts when it serves you correctly. Just to refine the facts: 118M out of 207M registered voters voted in 2012. That is 57% of the electorate. Given the state of the US electorate, one has to assume that many of those that did not vote do not care; likely because they have become disillusioned with US politics.

    The vast majority of those not registered but part of the US population of 311M are under 18 and thus not eligible to vote.

    Agreed. 51% of those interested and eligible to vote, voted for the President. Its silly to spin that any other way.

    Somehow inferring the President is illegitimate because he did not have a majority of Americans vote for him is silliness. To extent that, I doubt we ever had a president win the majority of eligible voters. When Obama won in 2008, he was the first president in 20 years to even win more than 51% of the actual vote.

    Supporters of Rand Paul are 'hysterically ignorant"?

    Whereas supporters of Barrack Obama are cool and intelligent?

    He will lack no support from the tri-cornered folks on this site on others. The only drawback with that is that they spend lots of time fighting the political wars on a computer and do next to nothing our on the streets where the actual door to door work is done to win elections.
    Thanks God Kentucky,is a small Commonwealth,with only four million plus people in it. Rand Paul, would probably get two million votes here, if he was running a presidential campaign in 2016.Once you leave the urban cities of Lexington,Ky. and Louisville,Ky. it's his in this Commonwealth!

    Yes, as well as 72% of persons in teaching positions in colleges and universities... they would be considered the highly educated. OTH, the Republican base consists of bigots, hillbillies and persons that live in states that are net takers of government funds.... That said, "consists of"is not the same thing as "substantially comprised of"...

    No, "hysterically ignorant" includes those that think the your can cut $500B out of a budget in one year and expect the deficit to fall by $500B; that believe you can balance the budget in 5 years (though admittedly, may be the most plausible of the Rand platform); that believe if you ended welfare (or medicaid or medicare) that the problems that welfare (medicaid or medicare) attempts to address just go away and cost taxpayers nothing; think global warming is a farce; or, even, for that matter, think the Republicans, as a whole, are really interested in actually balancing the budget; or thinking that Benghazi is the worst tragedy to befall America since 9/11.

    You are absolutely Right.....even tho it wasn't Lou Dobbs and his Independent Tea party people. That and some of the Personalities like Murdoch and Akin. Plus Palin put her foot into her mouth several times as well. Course Romney didn't help the cause much.

    Nah.....that's just the dose of reality that keeps steeping off in lefts space while twisting the thorn blatantly in their side. Course no one wants more tax cuts for the Lefts Poster Girl in Hollywood. Course many don't like hearing from Hollywood types like Spielberg who all back Obama.....thinking their film scripts pose as actual reality.

    Hence those Heroes of yours.....U know, Michael Moore, George Clooney and the Cast of MSDNC.
