    Fifty percent say that increasing government spending hurts the economy, and yet the same people give Obama high marks for job performance. They do not associate Obama with the increase in government spending! It doesn’t say they associate it with the Republicans, but they clearly don’t associate Obama with it. This is an amazing dichotomy. A little over 50% approve of Obama’s job performance, and the same people say that increasing government spending hurts the economy. Rush Limbaugh

    You don’t have a lot of faith in Reuters. Now, they were all correct, as it turns out (give or take a point or two) in the 2012 election forecasts. But Reuters, I’ll tell you… In this story, they even go so far as to claim this.

    Quote: “Obama is now facing questions over whether he and fellow Democrats miscalculated the budget showdown and especially their messaging strategy of making frequent graphic warnings that public services were about to be decimated by cuts.”

    There aren’t any cuts, but that doesn’t matter. People think there are.

    Ralph Hahn, I know that there are smart liberals. We just don’t see them on this site.

    Have you not figured it out , blacks voted 98% For Obama

  • Cathy

    Well, Obama kept one alive.
    A top Al Qaeda spokesman who is the son-in-law of Usama bin Laden has been captured overseas and charged in the United States with conspiracy to kill Americans, according to an indictment unsealed Thursday.
    Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., former chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, first revealed that Sulaiman Abu Ghaith was captured in Jordan, and sources told Fox News he was apprehended “some time ago,” without giving specifics.
    He is expected to appear Friday morning in a federal court in New York City to face the charges.

  • Dreamer

    To: Doug Z,
    Wow, I hope that came out wrong.

    To: Cathy,
    There were a few, do not hear as much.
    I actually miss Suik…

  • Cathy

    Doug Z, the 98% is only for Black women and they out numbered the black male vote 8 to 1. only 75% of black males voted Obama.

    Those number are why Hillary doesn’t bother me in 2016. The black women are not going to show up for her.

    Who will they give us John McCain, again

  • Doug Z

    Cathy , I will not vote for Jeb Bush

  • Mark2

    @Cathy & DougZ

    76% of Hispanic Women voted for Obama

    67% of Single Women voted for Obama

    The future is bright for the Democratic Party.

  • Mark2

    Hillary will be a shoe-in come 2016.

    2008 = Obama (Black President)
    2012 = Obama (Black President)
    2016 = Clinton (Female President)
    2020 = Clinton (Female President)
    2024 = Hispanic President
    2028 = Hispanic President

    Rubio is already taking up Liberal causes.
    Rand Paul is already taking up Liberal causes…who’s next?

    Bye-Bye to the Republican Party as we know it today.

  • Cathy

    Doug Z. Jeb Bush will not run. After W. left office Barbara Bush sat her family down and told them all to go out and have private lives with their families. And to not even think about running for office until she was dead.
    Barbara talked George P. (Jeb son) out of going into politics.

  • mikey o

    @mark 2 How is Pres Johnson 50 year on poverty doing ? Are we winning ? Spend spend if the program doesnt work spend some more on it.

  • usa8888

    ibsles–if you have a high school education, you know that government spending in a recession or depression is GOOD for the economy. But most people can’t count to 10 and have no knowledge of economics. Suffice it to say, everything is going well with Obama’s economy and the outlook is BRIGHT. Just keep the uneducated right wing fringe out of the way…..

  • Cathy

    Mikey O Do you really think he is going to answer you? He can’t explain how an act that costs over $507 million each year per victim for 20 years is and should been good for the company.

    He can only told me how women vote for those programs. So, clearly Mark2 can see that the democrats are buying the women votes.

  • usa8888

    Mark2 is exactly right..it will be a cold day in hell when the next right winger is elected president. The GOP will change and is, in fact, changing now. The right wing is the old John Birch Society–they are as crazy now as they were 60 years ago…..the only difference is that lunatics like Glen Beck and Slimebaugh can now make millions off right wing suckers–that wasn’t the case years ago….

  • usa8888

    Mickey O–the dems’ programs are going very well , thank you. You heard it here first: the economy is picking up steam and will be thundering by 2015, in spite of the right wing obstruction in the House. The good news is that the moderate GOP is beginning to work with the dems and this will help everyone. The rignt wing will collapse into oblivion, where they belong…

  • Cathy

    2016 leader of the U.S.C Hu Jintao :lol:

  • usa8888

    Cathy–the right wing WAR ON WOMEN is killing the GOP and the moderate GOP wants nothing to do with the right wing…..do you support legitimate rape candidates on the right wing GOP?????

  • usa8888

    How many of you right wingers are against the Federal Reserve and for creationism? Be honest……

  • mikey o

    @USA8888 What drugs are you on they must be good lets see Social Security ( Going Broke) Medi-care (going Broke) war on poverty (losing). But lets tax more and spend and spend. You could tax the rich at 100 % and you couldnt make a dent in the debt. Oh yes liberal logic debt doesnt matter.
