    Of course, I have to wonder...will there be a movement to "Occupy" the Mall in Washington?

    Or, will the Occupy movement, hold out on this one?

    Did you tell this lie, because of ignorance, or, inherrent dishonesty? Or, was it both?
    Any argument that the current GOP doesn't put party over country is the real lie.

    So do the Obamanauts.

    That's kinda the point - if you ask people "what are you", they identify as either a Democrat or a Republican.

    They hardly ever say "I'm an American".

Then he will relentlessly beat the Republicans over the head by saying they rejected his proposal which was "their idea" when, in fact, they have never proposed a tax increase in any way shape of form. That's just how he rolls...
    The man's a genius. He's bringing back what many consider to be Reagan's finest hour, AND got everyone bitching about it.

    He could announce that he is going to scrap Obamacare, and/or task Congress with going back and actually READING it, as they correct much of it.

    He could take responsibility once. Sure, that may not win us over instantly, but, it would at least be a nice start.
    I've got & even better idea:
    Maybe not in your case but plenty of GOP/Teaparty types hate Obama because he's black.
    If he would just stop "flaunting" his color..... you know: going on TV, making public appearance, walking on the public streets, etc.....many in the GOP could better accept him.

    Draw conclusions before you see...anything. Good way to develop credibility.
    Some assumptions can be made based on past performance. Sort of like "profiling". Though you still need to see the details.

    Do you think "trickle down" will finally work this time?

    Could it really work any worse than Obama's "trickle up" poverty?

    Instead of simply letting Americans keep more of what they earn (the hated version of "trickle down"), Obama and his wizards of economic smarts are using mountains of near zero interest inflationary fiat currency and an utterly ecstatic cabal of Wall Street banksters in hopes they'll "trickle down" some pennies on Main Street.

    Ironic, that...on so many levels....no...that's fucking hysterical...
    and even more so because street level progressive dullards are too blind, deceitful, or stupid to see what's happening right before their eyes.
