That's OK, though. Because the Dems are about to learn their lesson in economics. The hard way.
Don't forget that it was not just the Presidential election that the Democrats won..........

Chris Murphy (CT-Senate)
Bill Nelson (FL-Senate)
Mazie Hirono (HI-Senate)
Joe Donnelly (IN-Senate)
Elizabeth Warren (MA-Senate)
Claire McCaskill (MO-Senate)
Jon Tester (MT-Senate)
Martin Heinrich (NM-Senate)
Heidi Heitkamp (ND-Senate)
Sherrod Brown (OH-Senate)
Tim Kaine (VA-Senate)
Tammy Baldwin (WI-Senate)
Tammy Duckworth (IL-8)
Brad Schneider (IL-10)
Bill Foster (IL-11)
Bill Enyart (IL-12)
Cheri Bustos (IL-17)

Four of the above new representatives are openly very Progressive... All in all, a very big win!

Two entirely different things. One of reasonable intelligence would know that before posting something to make themselves appear uninformed...
obama has done NOTHING for blacks to help them, only to turn them into a voting block for his illegal activates. The black unemployment rate is over 15%, that is what obama has done for them. They aren't working so he gives them free stuff to prolong their lazy inactivity.. Obviously black people are easily conned by the master used car salesman.
obama is a communist who hates all Americans, black, blue, and pink, but he has the blacks fooled into thinking he cares about them. He doesn't..!
Anyone who voted for him, voted for their own destruction... You future is doomed...

So much hysteria. There is medication for that. If we are doomed it's going to be a natural disaster or something from outer space that does us in. Not Obama.

Mitt's just angry, I don't think he is used to so many people telling him he is full of sh#t.

Judging by your reps, clearly there are many other deranged minds agreeing with you. If we are doomed, it is because of like-minded, mentally-deficient people who spout ignorant rhetoric like this.

The right wing is attempting to revive the McCarthy era. We all know how history has treated that shameful period. This one will be remembered and treated no differently.

So Mr. Well informed... what has Obama done for Black people to "prolong their laziness?" Now remember, your ilk doesn't count the things that benefit the country as a whole, like all the new jobs that were created, as something "for Black people," so I shouldn't expect to see some nonsense about U/E extensions, right?

So blacks are stupid and lazy, eh Donny boy?
Are you a white Fox dupe just projecting perhaps?
You seem to be just another hysterical republican, responsible for most of our problems, but blaming others - especially minorities.. The black guy won - get over it.

I thought Rommey disavowed his "47%" comments? but here he is, basically repeating them, for the same crowd of well-healed donors.

Funny, cuz I always thought that, on the 47% tape, it was the only time during the whole campaign that you could tell Romney was really speaking with conviction. The only time the "real" Romney was on display.

America made the RIGHT CHOICE. I said it a year ago on these boards, and I'll say it again: NOBODY LIKES A PHONEY!

You got that right, they even made a song that is fitting on his theme "LIE"

The first video wasnt enough to cover mitt the twitt ****z and so here another
