    52% of Americans dislike the "Tea Party".
    A growing majority and an all-time high.
    While 54% of Americans approve of the job President Obama is doing.

    Great news for the gays!




    When will you REPUBLICANS stop using "the gays" to try to scare "the straights" into voting Repub?
    How about focusing on just doing a good job at running the country and the economy, instead of using toxic and divisive fear and smear tactics to try to win votes?
    Is hate and bigotry all you guys have got?

    I'm not a Republican, so I can't answer your questions.

    However, I do know that the U.S. government shouldn't be focusing on "running.. the economy." The kind of government you are referring to is currently found in Venezuela, North Korea and Cuba, and apparently they are doing an excellent job "running their economy." icon_wink.gif




    We tried having an administration that did nothing to manage the economy.
    The 2001-2009 Bush administration.
    The result?
    Runaway spending and borrowing, and an exploding National Debt.
    A major housing crisis.
    The 2007-2009 Bush recession - the worst in 70 years.
    A severe banking crisis that nearly sent the economy into a depression.

    The Bush/Repub economic policies you advocate did an excellent job of RUINING the economy.

    when you (GOP) have NOTHING constructive to counter with, "toxic and divisive fear and smear tactics" are all you have to go with.

    Thats right, SouthBeach is an independent just like myself. He just uses common sense before he takes a political viewpoint which is more than I could say for some of the liberal extremists on here.

    LOL!
    He never stops trying.
    It's a reflection of the disrespect and contempt he feels for gay men that he continues to think that he can fool us into believing that he's something other than the hardened partisan REPUBLICAN that he IS, and that all of his posts and threads prove that he is.

    Your comments are frequently lack "common sense" and are full of "extremist" viewpoints and statements and low personal attacks, so you're really in no point to be so high and mighty and holier than thou.

    And now we have an administration that is actively trying to ruin the economy.

    The result?

    Runaway spending and borrowing, and an exploding National Debt.
    *Thanks to the economic stimulus spending that was necessary to pull the country out of the 2007-2009 Bush recession.

    A major housing crisis.
    *That started during the Bush administration.

    No job growth.
    *TOTAL BS.
    We've had 13 straight months of job growth.

    Unemployment at 1930s Depression levels.
    *Unemployment has dropped to 9.0%.
    The lowest level since 2009.
    FAR lower than the 10.8% unemployment rate of the REAGAN administration.

    A ticking time bomb in the banking sector (Fannie and Freddie).
    *President Obama announced proposals to end Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac last Friday.

    Dismantling of the domestic energy industry (Gulf moratorium).
    *President Obama ended the drilling moratorium LAST OCTOBER

    Massive new rules, regulations and taxes strangling businesses (Obamacare).
    *There is no such thing as "Obamacare".

    Just because someone is not a Democrat / liberal / socialist / communist does not make them a Republican.

    I know, it's a very (very!) difficult concept for you liberals to grasp... but I will continue to be patient and explain this very simple point to you each time you fall off the wagon.



    And we will laugh our asses off at your failed attempts to spin out that line of BS every time.

    If anyone lacks common sense on here it is you Rickrick91. You are such a liberal extremist and you flatly refuse to open your mind and listen to others viewpoints. Obviously everything you say is very biased. But I am not going to waste my valuable time arguing with people like you.

    From your ramblings I picked out just one thing that should give you pause and cause you to reflect a bit.

    How could unemployment drop from 9.8% to 9.0% when there were only 36,000 jobs created?

    Or, to put it this way, you are agreeing that 36,000 jobs added in 1 month causes unemployment to drop from 9.8% to 9.0%.

    Please liberals, try some independent, critical thought for a change instead of parroting the usual Democrat talking points.





    Please, SB - try to educate yourself before you post comments that are false.
    Here - read this:

    And, thank God we've stopped them in time... no cap and trade (though Obama is sneaking parts of it through via the bureaucracy and his accomplices at the EPA).



    Incorrect.

    National debt explosion started under Reagan who tripled it, continued throgh Bush I, was somewhat mitigated by Clinton, and then exploded under Bush II. Obama's attempts to reign in the destructive forces unleashed by 40 years of Republican policies (including the economy shedding 750,000 jobs a month for Bush's last year in office), did increase the debt but also prevented a second Great Depression.

    We've had net private sector job growth nearly every of the last 12 months, primarily due to the stimulus. Sadly, Republicans are now dissolving those programs at the state level, which will hurt their economies.

    Unemployment not only didn't reach Depression-era levels, but didn't even rise to what it was under Reagan (10.8%), so that's a flat out lie.

    Obama's administration recently release three separate outlines for winding down Fannie and Freddie, so that's another flat out lie.

    Everything you write about the Affordable Care Act is a flat out lie, so no need to parse that.

    And the EPA will act where the Republican-controlled Congress won't - as it should - because the environment is being destroyed by predatory companies. And the moratorium on deep water drilling should also be continued as it has no effect on market prices and has already proven too dangerous to workers and the environment, thanks to BP and the Bush administration.

    Plus, the Gulf moratorium SB whines about was ended by President Obama LAST OCTOBER.

    SB can't even get the most basic facts correct.

    Did you look in the mirror before you posted that?
