“I think people are more focused on race than they should be. Muhammed Ali said he would never want to be the first black president because of exactly what is going on with Barack right now. Scapegoat!!! I'd rather an Uncle Tom than a Bush or a Palin. Uncle Tom built this country.”

“Nothing Palin says makes sense. Easy to talk when you quit your job in government for a reality show! I don'n envy Barack's position trying to save the Titanic.”

Senate Republicans Defeat Reauthorization Of Jobless Aid, Tax Cuts

“I don't think Dems are playing any strategy. But the majority of them are definitely not trying to hold UI hostage for the benefit of the wealthy few. I just don't get why the republicans would do this. Are only democrats unemployed? Maybe.”

What Now for the Democrats?

“Obama is a disaster? Why? Because he's having a tough time saving the TITANIC! (And the REPUBLICANS are holding all the lifeboats for the wealthy 2%).

Maybe SUPERMAN will run for president in 2012.

Or maybe Americans won't vote against their own interests creating glacial opposition for the President. Or is that too easy?”

“Republicans look real bad fighting like this for millionaires and disregarding the majority population around the WINTER HOLIDAYS. What kind of SCROOGE strategy is this? They need a visit from the ghosts of the past, present and future!”

“But, but... the Democrats are the ones in control of the Senate. What kind of strategy are they playing?

Maybe they are still smarting over the release of info on the 3.3 Trillion dollar bonus package given to Multi National Corporations and Foreign banks.”

“This breaks my heart. I know too many people your age struggling to find work. Victims of the economy and age discrimination. Though they are not old! They are in the prime of their lives. Maybe this exposure can help you find work! And at the least, I hope benefits get extended NOW! Keep fighting. Cause you're not alone out there! Try to be thankful for the lil good you do have. Thanks for sharing your story!”

“Did you watch CSPAN before you disagreed? Or you still tuned into Fox? Republicans and their beliefs. Republicans believed in Sarah Palin and she could barely talk or read. Guess less government means less intelligence too. Beliefs and ideas cant oppose truth and fact. Tell Mrs. Roth about ideas. How is that going to help her get a job and feed her lil baby this month???????”

“How have those Bush tax cuts worked for us so far in this country. Saved a lot of jobs if you're counting in negative numbers. Bout -3,000,000 by my guess. Maybe REPUBLICANS count backwards.”

“None of anyone's business! Unemployment Insurance is a benefit that Americans that have lost their job through no fault of their own have a historical right to. It's insurance. A safety net for our citizens. It is the governments responsibility to maintain that right. Not to let it lapse so they can argue about tax cuts for the rich who take their money overseas.”

“You are so right Margaret. And the key word is I N S U R A N C E. Unemployment Insurance (UI). Insurance is something we paid for, something I have paid for for 25 years by working steadily. It seems fraudulent to take it away.”

“Only one side constantly fights for Wall Street and blocks programs for regular folks like emergency unemployment benefits for example. Only one side will hold up emergency benefits to fight for a tax cut for the RICH. Which side is that you think?”
