"President Obama did his bit for the economy Saturday."

I was momentarily excited when I thought he'd resigned.

If only.......I'm shocked the president didn't buy his own book. He's that much of a narcissist.

And the far right wing

...naval gazing circle jerk continues.

It's pretty baffling why folks who probably think of themselves as smart...haven't figured out yet how this kind of mondo Obama fetish has gotten them nearly nowhere, and has managed to turn thoughtful people--even conservatives--against their babblings.

Ah, but don't let me stop you. Continue the rant about things untrue-yet-imaginable. Keep on keepin' on how Obama's the new age Hitler. Pile on about how Obama's really heading a secret Muslim Cabal.

Some folks think people like you are a waste of human flesh, but I say they're wrong. I find humor quite important.

..this kind of mondo Bush fetish got them nowhere for the entire eight years they practiced it...and yet they persist.

"We were JUSTIFIED! Bu...bu...but Bush...!"

Sweep your own doorstep before you complain about your neighbor's.

But I don't expect sufficient intellectual aculity from the left wing fringe to process that.

Bush?

Oh, you mean the former President? Yeah, I don't see him mentioned around here very much.

Thanks for playing. Remember: failure is an important part of figuring out how to succeed. You folks have excelled in the former, so you should be due to experience the latter. You know, one of these years.

Wow, Talk About Something from Nothing

newscred may get the pointless idiotic troll post award this year.

cruiser, he's egregiously beating you in vapidity. Indubitably.

Here's a challenge. Can any of you blame Obama for the weather?

Ready, go!!

The ONLY people Obama HASN'T failed with

are the low-information voters who...for dearth of critical thinking and analysis skills...twice elected him. Oh, and add to that the left wing media, which has been trying to protect him.

cruster Posted - 12/1/2013 1:11:01 PM | show profile | flag this post

Oh cruiser

Yes, stupid people elected the president because the big bad media lied to them and Obama promised them cell phones.

Yawn.

Do you ever get tired of chewing on the same stale piece of meat?

Saw this online news headline

"Congressional Approval Hits New Low." Historic low--6%. I was momentarily surprised until I realized that this was only because they're still in office.

BTW; I noticed cruise, not Tex, was the first one to bring up Bush. Knee-jerk much? And another thing; two experienced, qualified Republicans (McCain and Romney) were both defeated because of "low information voters"?? That doesn't mesh with what I've heard (especially around here)...I thought Fox was #1 and we're a mostly a "Right of the Center" country. Go figure.

Difference between Obama and Bush...

Besides obviously everything...Bush was the worst President. Ever. No question, history will bear that out. But when Bush was Prez, liberals did not wish for him to fail. We wanted him to succeed no matter how much we thought he was a retard because we wanted the country to do well and it would be stupid to go against that. With Obama, repubs have been shutting down the country in order to do anything they can to make him look bad. McConnell said as much. Repubs are willing to sell the country down the toilet as long as they can get their power back. Period. That's because they are the party of wealth and so they will have money no matter what. They don't give a crap about the rest of us. They just want their position of power so they can make their wealthy supporters even richer. Dems are trying to do their best to help out the disappearing middle class. Case in point, getting accessible health care. Repubs don't want that because they don't want to see people of color or poor people in their doctors' offices. If you support that, you are anti-American and deserve what you get from the repubs when they take away what you have, and they will because no one on this board is a one percenter. Better watch who you support, because if you are not wealthy the repubs are against you.

"if you are not wealthy the repubs are against you"

Whatta bunch of left wing class warfare bullsh*t! But it apparently plays well within that angry mob called the Democrat party.

rich white elderly male protestant republicans against everyone else??

you're right.. that's definite class warfare..and they're losing, thank god..

Well, cruiser loser...

Talk about angry...like your little tantrum of trying to antagonize people by calling it the Democrat party. What is this, 3rd grade? Don't take that as a compliment. Repubs are all about class warfare and don't think for a minute anyone believes your crap about it being made up. You think trickle down was a Dem idea? You think starting a war to help out big business and giving the rich a tax break so they didn't have to pay for it was a Dem idea? You think cutting unemployment benefits, Social Security and food stamps were Dem ideas? Your party is always screaming about the "entitlements" given the poor but say nothing about how the rich pay way less than their fair share into the pot. We have one of the lowest tax rates in the world but the wealthy still scream like we are squeezing every last penny from them. You are so blinded by your own beliefs and you are just the kind of fool they love. You are one of the many but think some day you will be one of the few so you let them continue to bilk the country and they laugh at you every step of the way. You support them but just see what happens when you try to use the front door of their country clubs!

"the rich pay way less than their fair share into the pot"

Have you ever seen the chart from the government of who pays what percentage of US income taxes? Obviously you haven't or you couldn't possibly make a statement like that.

You're one of those low information voters who probably believes every class warfare talking point the Center for American Progress puts out.

The top 25 percent of US taxpayers pay MORE THAN 87 PERCENT of all income taxes collected. That's 33 million returns representing some $827 BILLION (some, of course, are joint returns so the actual number of people is more than 33 million)

That leaves the bottom SEVENTY FIVE PERCENT of US taxpayers to pay ONLY 13 percent...over 102 million returns represening a paltry (by comparison) $123 billion.

You're the poster boy for stupid.

Of course the brilliantest croooooozer leaves out the enormous income gap between the top few and the rest of us. Of course the old man who lives off gubmint entitlements negletcts to mention that billionaires like the Kochs and Romneys et al don't feel the "pain" of taxes as much as the Walmart worker. The minimum wage worker can't afford a team of tax lawyers to hide their vast wealth from working at McDonalds.

Kudos pal! Don't include facts that make you look stupid.

Cruzo doesn't have any. He's a "low-information voter."

Asterisk-filled words, name-calling and "facts" with no sources: Brilliant!

mpdodgson Posted - 12/2/2013 10:15:50 PM | show profile | flag this post

"...uhh, stupid"???

Aren't income taxes based on {wild guess here} income?

So, keeping that in mind, do rich people pay more income tax than poor people?? Uhh stupid...I would think so. In other words (slower words are needed apparently) the amount collected from just a few billionaires or millionaires is going to be higher than the amount collected by a thousand or so Walmart or McDonalds employees. 15% or 20% of a $12,000 a year salary doesn't add to much, I'll grant you that. 15% or 20% of a $250,000 salary adds up to a lot.

That's why it's entirely true rich people pay more income tax than the rest of us--in terms of dollars. If you want to add up what goes into the Gov kitty. But even the conservative Fortune points out; that's the wrong picture to look at. "it takes 6,258 typical Apple worker salaries to match (CEO) Cook's total pay"

http://money.cnn.com/magazines/fortune/fortune500/2012/ceo-pay-ratios/

The 'Rich' add to the coffers more because they make more. But there are more poor people paying taxes than there are rich people. Just the way it is. Same way there are plenty of billion dollar companies out there paying NO taxes at all, but most 'small businesses' do. It's just that their amounts are lower.

Jeez. I have a rudimentary handle on all of this...I admit...but at least even I can recognize the concept that if you make 6, 7, or 8 zeros in a year you're going to pay more in cash than I do.

cruiser Posted - 12/2/2013 11:02:23 PM | show profile | flag this post

The operative word here...stupid...is percentage

The well off pay MUCH higher percentages than those of lesser means. Hell, half the country pays NO income taxes at all!

And to reiterate, the top 25 percent of earners pay 87 PERCENT of the total income taxes collected.

But you of the radical left fringe still dishonestly say that the Bush tax cuts favored the wealthy. In fact, they did NOT. Lower income people got larger percentage cuts than those of greater means. That is documented fact.

There is NO WAY one can HONESTLY say the "rich" are not paying their "fair share." But who said you people were honest?

Cruzo only posts facts?!?!

That's a first.

There's that whole thread on here where he wrongly believed judicial appointments by the president required a two-thirds vote of the Senate.

The guy doesn't even check what he says before he posts errors!

cruiser Posted - 12/3/2013 9:34:24 AM | show profile | flag this post

OF COURSE he has nothing pertinent to say

so he drags up something that is totally NON-pertinent...and it's also totally wrong.

But that's how the left wing fringe on here operates. They have to say SOMEthing...even if it's wrong and doesn't pertain...just so they can have the last word.

How juvenile can you be?

Cruzo...

you've used this entire thread to belittle and insult people you disagree with.

I merely cited a fact that showed you -- of all people -- should not accuse others of being "low information voters" when you got a basic, ninth-grade civics fact completely wrong.

I won't bother to correct your grammar. But your comment...which I've quoted above...is what you...yourself...and your left wing fringe brethren do all the time...24/7/365.
