    This story is the perfect illustration of the right wing of the GOP. Hopeless - clueless - and as anti-American people as they come.
    The 'right wingers' did not bring race into this thread.. PeterEU did, and he is listed as a Centerist. Unless you're calling him a 'right winger'. Facts are your freind... learn to use them.

    Ever hear that old saying "what goes around comes around"? Barry and the Dims cut the Republicans out of all legislation for the past 2 years..... that was the dims idea of compromise.... now it's coming back to butt **** them, as it should.

    The Republicans screwed the pooch big time by giving in to the 13 month unemployment extension and should be ashamed of themselves (anyone that can't find a job in 6 months isn't looking. (and yes, I live in a rural area of a State with higher than average unemployment and it only took me 2 weeks to find 2 jobs, so I know what I'm talking about)..... seems like the dims aren't the only ones that didn't get the message in November.
    There is no such thing as a “Natural Born Dual-Citizen“.

    You totally miss the point. Imagine that. the thread is about a subject of conservative defections from the tax deal. fine. But then several conservative posters - three in a row - attempt to focus in on the issue of racism simply because one poster humorously included it in his post. Its the conservative cause celebre to attack any such charge of racism and make the issue about false charges of racism. The conservative goal is to make even bringing up the word RACISM as such a huge pain in the butt that it is then taken off the table.

    Those facts are indeed my friend

    Excuse me, but who died and made you 'the decider' as to what posts we can respond to? YOU stated righties brought race into the thread, which was either an error, or a lie, on your part. I know which one I vote for.

    If you don't like the fact someone repsonds to a post you think maybe should be ignored, too freaking bad. Get over your self.

    If DeMint and the Club for Growth actually have the congressional numbers of support that they think they do, Obama only has one choice. Scrap the whole thing. Demint wants permanent Bush tax cuts. Let them expire. The unemployed will just have to find a way to make money.

    You go and respond to anything you want - I am not trying to stop you. If you do not recognize sarcasm and humor when it appears before you like in the previous post from Peter, then all is indeed lost. I think that what you conservatives were doing was two things
    1) trying to take the focus off the thread topic
    2) employing the strategy to ridicule any mention of race or racism even if it is made in jest as part of your larger effort to get the entire issue off the table for all time

    btw - Nancy Pelosi just said she will NOT bring the tax cut bill to the floor without changes that please the members of the Democratic caucus.

    Does anyone know (or have an estimate) on how much the Bush tax cuts will cost for only the wealthiest 2 per cent of wage earners over the next 2-years?

    DeMint started the recession.

    Hold that thought, DeMint just overtook Obama on my approval chart.
