@goose,

"OHHHHHHHHHHHH, the President won't let me keep my health plan, "

"I think that about sums every every teabagger post here"

Don't you mean that sums up what MOST Americans think?

"Obama's Current Approval Rating Is The Ugliest Since Nixon" (BI)

"New Poll Reveals Latinos Are Souring On Obama" (Huffington Post)

"Poll: Obama's approval rating sinks to new low" (CBS)

"President ends year at all-time CNN polling low" (CNN)

"Lie of the Year: 'If you like your health care plan, you can keep it'" (WaPo Politifact)

Face it Goose, delusion is what you see in the mirror every morning!

"Obama will likely go down in history"

Historic indeed!! Obama will forever be paired with Nixon as the most "crooked" leaders in modern history!

“President Feels 2013 Wasn’t Bad”

Considering Barry Obamboozler and his family are jetting off for his fifth annual multi-million dollar taxpayer-funded Hawaiian Holiday Extravaganza while over 20 MILLION of his constituents are STILL jobless and a RECORD 48 MILLION Americans are STILL surviving on Food Stamps, clearly. But when you’re doing this well – no “spontaneous” protest-murdered Ambassadors or diplomats and no Fastly and Furiously-murdered Border Patrol agents for over a year, our new Iranian partners quietly-happily spinning away with their new centrifuges, 7 MILLION Americans with Obamascam-cancelled insurance policies patiently waiting for the Obamascam website to come back online before tomorrow's enrollment deadline – who can blame Barry Obamboozler for a well-deserved divertissement.

There you have it...each day as the small cortège of wraifferbaits awaken and must face life on a rotating orb of progressive 21st century changes..

..the urgency to digress into the debate ploy of Argument Overload precludes their urgency to acknowledge what urgency has created in their Depends.

Throw veracity out the window, throw such a plethora of nonfactual spin at them that its too much to debunk

...then throw me the Vesicare, its gonna be another long day on Pluto.

ClownBoy Mistake #3 "the real battle lines are RINOs vs Teatotalitarians…the rest of us know what time it is on the gerrymandered clock."

WRONG!

10/23/13

On Wednesday, CNN’s Dana Bash tweeted that ALL yes 100% Senate Democrats up for re-election in 2014 will reportedly support a delay of Obamacare’s enrollment deadline.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), who is up for re-election in 2014, wrote to Obama on Tuesday and asked him to delay the enrollment deadline for the individual mandate. “Given the existing problems with the website, I urge you to consider extending open enrollment beyond the current end date of March 31, 2014,” Shaheen wrote to the president.

"Allowing extra time for consumers is critically important so they have the opportunity to become familiar with the website, survey their options and enroll.”

DEMS are throwing Obama under the BUS in record numbers!

Oblivious Reputation needs to cut and paste from those more intelligent than him, which is about 7.5 BILLION on planet earth.

“and that current massive baby-boomer generation-turned-seniors who make up a huge portion of midterm votes …aren’t proxy to…more specifically….turn their noses….at “ blah blah BS….

STFU and get an educatin’ FOOL:

Roper Center Demographics 2012

18-29 group Obama got 60%, Romney 37%!!!

45-64 Obama 47% Romney 51%

65 and over Obama 44% Romney 56%

Conclusion: Dems are going to get another ASSWhuppin ala 2010!

Now Rocke go to the board and write 100 times “I am a FAILURE of a political analyst” . . .

Poor Obfuscation Reputation, reduced to selective amnesia to make a case for Barry the Bumbler. Comparing FIRST term Reagan against second term Nobraina In the 1980 Election Reagan won 50.7% of the popular vote, Carter got 41% because the INDEPENDENT candidate John Anderson got 6.7%.

IN 2012 Mitt Romney got 47.2%. Reagan was re-elected in 1984 winning 49 of 50 states. The president's overwhelming victory saw Mondale carry only his home state of Minnesota (by 3800 votes) and the District of Columbia. Reagan won a record 525 electoral votes, THE MOST OF ANY CANDIDATE IN UNITED STATES HISTORY, In 2010 off year election, the Democrats suffered their worst defeat in almost 100 years.

Hint: 2014 is an OFF YEAR election.

Given that Obama earned a bigger percent of the popular vote in 2012 than the Gipper in ‘80, Clinton in both terms and dubya twice

…and given that DEM senate candidates received 10 million more popular votes than gerrymandering GOPeers

…and that DEMS also outscored the competition in House seats voting by 1.7 million votes on 2012

..and that current massive baby-boomer generation-turned-seniors who make up a huge portion of midterm votes

…aren’t proxy to…more specifically….turn their noses….at plutocracy

..the real battle lines are RINOs vs Teatotalitarians…the rest of us know what time it is on the gerrymandered clock.

"President Feels 2013 Wasn’t Bad"

The guy hasn't ever quit smokin' the wacky weed.

Economy is improving? How can you say that when multi-trillion $$$ debt continues to mount up?

How can you say that when many people, including college graduates, can't find a job or even a job in their field of study?

And now, the healthcare fiasco, started by this president and democrats is causing widespread havoc on people's health care insurance and pocketbook.

And, one other fact. People are paying alot more for nearly everything and receiving less service and product for the money, whereby reducing the standard of living for most Americans.

Like all liberals, the president is totally out of touch with truth and reality.

It is impossible for true blessings to flow out of such a rebellious, divisive, and stubborn administration.

Only 3 more yrs to 'finish the job'.
