    But we are not talking about sides right now. we are talking about specfic comments that were misleading and down right lies by Barack Obama. calling the Reps the Party of NO, when that was a bold-face lie and I would hope you Obamabots would agree.

    Pure partisan politics. They opposed his plans so he called them the party of "no" for voting no on things they didn't think were best for America. Much of their criticism of Republicans is quite foolish. "They oppose the Affordable Healthcare Act! Republicans just want you to die and for the poor to never receive care." It's just partisan politics as usual.

    Don't you think this is counter-productive when Obama does this? Scream out "Party of NO" just to win votes?

    1. Obamacare
    2. Stimulus 1
    3. Continuing the fake war on terror
    4. Opening Gitmo
    5. Lifting the ban on gay marriage
    6. Raising taxes (it's coming)


    The list goes on....Everything he chirped loud about, he got, not 100%, but he got it.


    Now, can you name something he didn't get which could validate his claim of "the party of NO"?

    Obamacare is a great example of the obstinate nature of the Republocrats. The discussion immediately broke down into finger pointing. Blah blah blah socialism, blah blah blah death panels. And what did we get? A give away to the insurance companies. Much in the same light Medicade Part D was a give away to the pharmaceutical companies. Because neither party will compromise, we got the shaft.

    Stimulus one was nothing more than give away to corporations, both sides love that

    Continuing the fake war supports forever war and the further expansion of federal government, as I already said, that's the one thing they'll agree on

    It was closing GITMO that Obama had stated (GITMO already existed before Obama in case history is something you don't know a lot about) and he didn't get it

    Has the ban on Gay Marriage been lifted? It's recognized in all States?

    Raising taxes....didn't Obama extend the Bush tax cuts? Hmmm, you seem to have things confused.

    The "list goes on", but here's the rub. You said 90%, and arbitrary list of political hack points doesn't prove the 90%. You have to give the full list, so we have the absolute number of things he tried to pass and compare it to the list of things which did pass (not imaginary made up stuff you seem to list here). The ratio of those will give the percentage of passed initiatives and that needs to be 90% for you not to be a liar. Can you prove you aren't lying or are you just making numbers up thinking it's going to fly?

    The GOP has fought against almost every proposal the Democrats have put forth, no matter how mundane it is. They've held up dozens of nominations without any objection to the candidate, they've refused to compromise on any bill Obama puts forward, they've threatened the financial health of this country when they blocked the debt ceiling raise. Outside of Obama's first few months on office can you give me a single bill where the Republicans negotiated with the Democrats?

    It's not a lie at all. From the very beginning, the Republican Party's stated objective (hell, they didn't even pretend otherwise) was to make sure Obama's Presidency was a failure. So they voted 'no'. Veteran's Beneifts ? Vote No, because Obama might get some credit. It was a shameful exercise by the Republicans and my only regret is that the Democrats haven't called they on this BS earlier.

    Your only regret?..haha...ever think they was in on it too?

    Listen, as 1 example, Obamacare is going to ruin Healthcare and Vet benefits, you watch. It's a not a stable program when you have to get all your work done through the Government. just not feasible and America will feel that choke when it kicks in and everything bottlenecks.

    Yeah, Private sector got greedy, I agree, made a bad name for Private, hence Obamacare is so popular.

    But you have let the market bear itself out. that's with any market. from healthhcare to food. the strong survive and the schemers would've be run outta business in due time anyway. but now, coming down the hole is Obamacare, which WILL ultimatley force us all onto it. as it stands, it appears we have a choice but that's just a mechanism for positioning. it's a war move. and we are at war. make no mistake. our healthcare, or food supply, our energy, we are at war. and tbh, Obamacare is who we all will be at war with soon. with healthcare.

    Capitalism is what this country was built on, and what made it strong. not Socialism.

    anybody disagree? correct if I'm wrong.

    so many other bad decisions he's made for us. it sucks. I see why people are trying to move out of the country. It's going down hill.

    It was both because Reps. weren't going to give Obama a blank check and Barack was playing politics and people bought it.
    He is a narcissist and it makes him mad when people donít give him everything he wants. He also canít run on his failures so he blames them on the republicans not letting him spend more and more and more and more.
