“Where have you been??? The old programs haven't worked. We spend way more money than other civilized countries who get much better health outcomes. We also have over 40 million people without health insurance who end up getting sick because of a lack of preventive care, and cost us all billions of dollars. The ACA is going to provide affordable health care for our citizens, and save billions of dollars.”

“"Why can't the President propose a powerful FDR modeled program?"????? What planet have you been hanging out on for the last 8 years?? He has proposed all sorts of excellent programs, but none of them has had a ghost of a chance in the House.”

“And did you ask GWB the same question when he drained your savings account and began piling on trillions and trillions of dollars in debt? The amazing thing about your type is that whenever the deficit/debt increases under a republican, all of a sudden deficit spending is good and not a word is said about the spending, but when a democrat takes office all hell is going to break lose unless they draconically slash spending.”

“He will never be president because he relied on straw man arguments, demonstrated no leadership, had no fresh ideas, and showed that in fact he is just a pretty face.”

“And there are many educated people who know he is doing a great job. They understand that he took office in the middle of an economic disaster that hadn't run its course before it peaked at 10.2%, and they understand that a President doesn't have a magic wand that can turn years of mismanagement around in an instance. They also understand that had he had any help at all from Congress, we would now be at full employment.”

“I understand now. Thank you. You didn't complain about the Bush deficits because they were really Clinton deficits. Just like 9/11 was a failure of Clinton and not Bush. Just like killing OBL was either no big deal or a bad thing. I'm sorry your life is so miserable since Pres. Obama took office. I'll let you have the last word. I can tell you can't live without it.”

“Bush was able to work with a Democratic Congress because Democrats are reasonable and allowed Bush some presidential perogative. The first 2 years in Obama's term what happened was the Senate Republicans filibustered more bills than ever in history. He has no worshipers, only loyal citizens. Why do you all hate him so much? Where were you when Bush was running up the annual debt from a surplus when he took office to over $ 1,000,000,000,000 when he left. Not a word from the right wing about the horrors of budget deficits then.”

“If Dems are so easy to work with, then why don't they, including BO, want to cut the fat from their pet projects? PLEASE, investigate the phony surplus from Slick Willy! THERE WAS NO SURPLUS! The first 2 years of BO's administration, was a DEM congress! Blame is easy and of no use when you don't want to place the blame where it belongs! After 4 years with BO, the deficit is how much? Look it up, please! You want a one party system with no checks and balances, then you voted the right person into office!!!”

“I would have said Thank God for the first amendment and freedom of speech and that I live in a country where ideas from all parts of the political spectrum are possible. And I would have yawned because the Communist Party USA has about 2,000 members and absolutely no relevance today. The boogie man is dead. Get over it.”

“yep, Slinky, The Communist Party USA is as relevant as Benghazi.”

“SlinkyG - Frank Marshall Davis, a pro-Marxist activist - and member of the Communist Party - was identified in Obama's book - dreams from my father - only as "Frank" - as Obama's mentor in Hawaii. Can you imagine why?”

“Queenie, you need to stop listening to Swamp News. The bill was introduced into the house by democratic representative John Larson. In the senate the bill was broken into three hopefully easier to pass pieces, but republican filibusters finished it off. You gotta get over the Communist thing. It is very very 1930s.”

“The Communist Party USA endorsed Obama for 2008; endorsed Obamacare; endorsed Obama's Jobs Bill for Bigger Government; The Communist Party USA endorsed Obama for re-election for 2012.

SlinkyG - why pretend?

If the Communist Party USA had endorsed Obama's political opponent - what would you have said then?”

“The reason we are divided now is that the Republicans can't stand not to be in complete control. Almost before he was sworn in as President, Mitch McConnell said the Republicans number one goal was to make Obama a one term president.”

“Really? How come Bush was able to work with a Democrat Congress? BO had a Democrat Congress for his first 2 years in office. What happened?
Divisiveness is BO's goal and the only thing that he accomplished!

Why is it that his worshipers never want to look at the truth? Look up the cuts that the Republicans want and see why BO doesn't want to cut his buddies and cronies income!”

“The constitution is imperfect. That's why there are 27 amendments. And, no the President isn't disregarding, disavowing blah blah blah the constitution. And no he doesn't place himself above the constitution. He quite simply is trying to save the middle class, protect the poor, and maintain our standing in the world- all things that the previous President came pretty close to destroying.”
