RACE!!!!

Liberals can't defend Obama's policies/actions so they play the race card.

When all else fails, use RACE to silence the opposition.

In fact you could add up the inaugurals of the two Bushes together and it would still fall short of Obama's 2013 numbers.

Inauguration 2013 Turnout Estimate: 800,000-1 Million People Came To Ceremonies, D.C. Official Says

Another testament to Obama's enduring popularity is the fact that he is the only President in history besides Eisenhower to be elected twice with more than 51% of the popular vote. In fact Obama won both his elections with electoral college landslides.

It must suck to be a Republican in the Obama era. It's one thing to contend with the crushing defeats at the polls, but two epic turnouts in a row at his inauguration must be next to unbearable for them.

On the other hand, for Democrats Obama is a godsend. He is the greatest thing to happen to our party since FDR.

No one ever lost money overestimating the stupidity of the US public. 51% of the population, after all, voted for Obama.

We have a nation of morons with average IQs below 100. Why in the world would we expect such a population to exhibit common sense?

Well America elected George W. Bush once (every knows he stole the first one) so you do have a point. Anyways America has more than redeemed herself with Obama. I couldn't be more proud of her.

This is why it reveals their true hearts, when they insult the President's re-election by attacking the Americans they believed voted for him, they prove their disdain for millions of Americans.

They don't care about those Americans because to conservatives they don't matter. They are just moochers and takers who are destroying America. This opinion is widely held by conservatives.

It is sick that one of the two major political parties is so blatantly hostile towards millions of Americans.

You come on here and directly attack the people who voted for the President as the unemployed and those on the government dole as a way to delegitimize his re-election and inauguration.

So you have shown yourself more than willing to isolate ridicule and crap on millions of your fellow Americans.

This is the exact same tactic that racists deploy when attacking their fellow Americans based on race. So you aren't that far off.

You liberals get what you give, so stop with the feigned outrage.

Quite simple actually........... I always attract a crowd, and find that I'm really 'POPULAR' when I shout "I'm buying" also.

"I'm buying" is what 0bama's entire presidency is predicated upon.


Very few have figured out he's buying, but with their money.......pathetic fools.


YC.......

Nope. MLK day is a holiday at my office. I got paid to take a day off!!!!!
Watched the inaguration most of the day; it was great!!!!

Some people get vacation days and holidays at their places of employment. Seems like you're not one of them.

Get out of here with that nonsense comparison.

Ridiculing Republicans because President Obama won, and because they placed so much energy into ensuring his defeat and failed is not at the same as attacking the Americans who voted for the President as unemployed, on the government dole whose votes don't count, whose attendence at his inauguration doesn't count because they don't matter.

conservatives continue to show they hate millions if their fellow Americans and will take the flimsiest of reasons to share their disdain.

Much like our own country, which is spending WAAAAY beyond its means.
