Democrats will say: "I'm feeling optimistic about his plan because he is pushing for the middleclass." Republicans will say: "I can't wait until these four years are over so that we can push for tax cuts for the wealthy, go and create more wars and watch job growth sink."

Really this man is insane, he described how everyone would have it have made, but its those darn Repubicans that are stopping us from having a perfect world. His speeches are about "Feelings" and his continuous attack our rights and of course-race warfare is always central to an Obama speech.

Marco Rubio an gave adult speech for adults.

Hmm ........ Are we resurfacing the draft dodger days? I think I'm going to move to Canada. At least their fate is known verses ours. The answer isn't to keep spending in lieu of making everything right. I honestly believe these four years will leave us in a state that we'll never recover from. However, all those new bridges and roads will create mega jobs for all of our illegals! Now, that's a wondrous plan. In this four years we will see the implementation of Obama TV to go along the phones. We will also see our credit rating lowed once again. We are a Super Power on a rampage with absolutely no sound direction. Gee, lookout .....

Matter of fact, M. Rubio effectively removed himself from the "a" list of credible candidates as he sweated and stammered his way through his laundry-list of Republican boiler-plate talking-points.

When the cotton-mouth finally got him and he dove for the water bottle, he looked woefully out of place, like a deer in the headlights, or an intruder caught by a flashlight.

Obama is a cult leader and will attack any group of Americans that disagree with his ideology.

He mentioned job/economy over 60 times. Where has the cult leader been the last 4 years?

-$16,500,000,000,000,.00 National Debt

-8,500,000 millions Americans have left the JOB market

-48 million people of Food Stamps

-Gasoline prices-tell me how this helps the middle class

-The cult leader refuses to sign- KeystoneXL--This put's 20,000 Americans to work with one tax dollar. The Cult leader talks jobs but refuses win win proposals.

- the Cult leader wants to and is cutting the Military to shreds.

- Food prices continung rising

The thief in chief wants to raise taxes so we can have more money--Raising taxes takes money OUT of our pockets..understand

That's crazy. If he walked into a mess you would think the first point of action would be to clean it up. He's only added to the misery and the pain of America. We are NOT headed in the right direction ........

TO: BLUES: Why doesn't the local newspaper follow up like you do. I'm beginning to think that you have more zest for the truth than the local newspapers.

Most posters at this site are retirees. Here's a real test of the economy: Find any 10 young people who graduated from college in the past year. Ask how many work full time. I guarantee that figure is less than 33%. Ask how many have a job with benefits. That number is even lower. Ask how many have a job with a 401K. Lower still. And a job with a pension? Zero.

Good by zenith, enjoy the government paid health care in Canada. Don't forget to leave any handguns you may have back here in the States, you won't be using them up north. Oh and by the way could you take a few of your right wing friends with you?

As a country, and as citizens as well, I find it hard to imagine we have ever benn weaker than we are right now.

We are all so full of BS, allowimg ourselves to be put in a postion of following a federal govt that pushes BS, lead by a president who last night accomplished saying more BS in 90 minutes than the rest of the presidents before him pushed combined.

Im prayimg for rain,

This country has massive problems and the next four years will take us from being broken to being broke. Might as well jump on that "Magic Bus" and take a ride to cloud nine. The cloud we live in now will not pass nor will we ever be able to be a sovereign nation again. Let's make Thunderbird, MD20-20 or Ripple the national drink of choice! lol

All it takes is the mere mention of President Obama to send several of you into a frenzy. With the exact same crying points over & over again. At what stage will you simply accept the results of the election and be about the work of Americans?

You Republicans are still 4yrs away from being able to do anything about the White House. Instead of wasting time grieving over Romney, why not develop a Candidate or an idea for getting a majority of Americans to accept your politics again? You ain't getting nowhere as an anti Obama antagonist. A fact you should'nt need me to teach you!

With all your political partisanship, rhetoric and complaining, Republicans won't even step up on the local stage to challenge the status quo. Maybe there is actually no place for you here, ever consider that?

resistance...the cant!!! they cant dude.

i cant even find just a bit of truth anymore coming from these whackos in washington.

last night was a disgrace, from the way they all cheered and claaped for their mighty king to the absolute nonsense he pushed from his throne to the the population.

first i gave up on govt, now i find myself giving up on "we the people". neither group gives a s.hit about this country anymore. what they care about is what are my leaders going to do for any cost they have to do it for.

Smell the coffee Republicans. You are still spouting the same lines that lost you the last 2 elections.

The gloom and doom, in your heads, is there because you won't support anything that would spur the economy.

repubslie...both teams are spurring the economy the same way. they have been doing it for decades..SPENDING.

thats it.

they now have us in a position that they have us so far in debt from spending....that they can't quit spending anymore.

that means we are on one path. there is no other path. they are intentionally destroying the money we use. its intentional. there is no other way to look at it now. if you think they are doing something else you are fooling yourself.

they are destroying the money you use. by april they will have accomplished it.
