Uhhh....good luck with that. That's the very same message the President has touted the last 2 years. Guess what? Voters had the option last night to throw the bums out if they were unhappy with Congress. Why would you assume that the very same message would be met with a displeasure that wasn't strong enough to effect change last night at the polls?? In other words, it appears that the people are not sold on a plan to tax the rich. Otherwise they would have given Democrats a House majority. They didn't, so I don't see your plan of attack working, just like it hasn't worked in the last 2 years.

Educate yourself.
Huh? Economic momentum and actual governance are two different issues. Try to keep up.

Obama followed the same strategy allowing to win the pay tax cut last year. If he doesn't get any cooperation from Boehner, he'll use the same tactic on the tax cut issue.

Clip:
.... Obama pressured Congress from the outside, taking his case to voters through rallies, a Twitter campaign and White House events. As their poll numbers plummeted, Republican leaders folded.

Should start formation around 2015.

More loons will be appointed to the Supreme Court as many of the current justices are getting up there.

Bankruptcy.

Rising unemployment rate and lack of jobs (but at least it will be easy to get government support when we are struggling to find work!)



Oh, but gay marriage is legal.

Interesting how you lament "loons" on the Supreme Court.

In light of the unhinged, general bat**** craziness of the rest of your post, is the irony escaping you?

Yeah! Hooray! Now .gov can tax all those rich greedy bastids to their Invisaline whitened teeth! Make the bourgeois fat cats pay! Why should you own a house with a yard? Move into government subsidized housing with rats and cockroaches so our land and water can be controlled by the UN. Homeownership? How 20th century!
