i would say many are against mandating insurance companies bill me (who doesnt need birth control) to pay for others who want but do not have birth control

its more of a wealth transfer thing

obama has no control over gas prices absent abolishing the Federal Reserve Act by executive order

So your against health insurance covering a vasectomy right?

The Debt increased $4.9 trillion during President Bush's two terms. The Administration has projected the National Debt will soar in Mr. Obama's fourth year in office to nearly $16.5-trillion in 2012. That's more than 100 percent of the value of the nation's economy and $5.9-trillion above what it was his first day on the job.

The two wars and the recession, both Bush created. And the Bush tax loopholes for the rich created the debt...this is common knowledge. Trying to make it politics is just unfair to common sense.

Rebuilding a country is expensive. This is a free market decision and people were making money on wars long before President Obama was born. The average Army guy isn't as qualified to be a contractor.

Not sure why you find it funny. It is an accepted fact that Obama has been on a steady climb in all relevant polls. That is building momentum.

Here's how much Big Mo Obama has ..With all but six of the state's 1,961 precincts reporting, Obama had 57 % of the vote

He could not sweep the national convention delegates that were in play...43% voted for someone else ...like such notables as Randall Terry and Jim Rogers ..

Ben Odom, a political strategist and a former vice-chairman of the state Democratic Party said :  "This shows real dissatisfaction,"  Odom said a vote count showing that more than 40 % of Oklahoma Democrats disapprove of the president's job performance...

Wow, you really are uninformed. High gas prices forced the recession. Profit margins decreased because of extra expense to cover transportation costs. People lost jobs then lost their homes which they were just barely able to afford in the first place.

Trickle down actually picked the economy back up for a while after the 9/11 mini recession. Thats fact.

Not saying Bush was a saint but he shouldnt get credit for all the stuff you lay on him.

Bottom line is you need to do more homework before you embarrass yourself further.

Hysterical. Um, nothing you stupidly posted addresses the fact that the federal debt is up 35% since Obama took office. A fact you said I made up.

And the Bush tax loopholes for the rich created the debt...this is common knowledge.

================

Except Bush created zero "tax loopholes for the rich" and there nation was trillions in debt prior to Bush being sworn in.

Further, the federal deficit was $242 billion when the Democrats took control of Congress.

Your "common knowledge" is composed of idiotic lies.

 It's a women's issue anyway and i have a penis. Let the people with vaginas vote and let the vaginas decided what to do about birth control and their bodies.

Um, Obama made the decision on the HHS Contraceptive mandate.

You're opposed to that, right?

Really?

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15

Really?

Gallup has Obama at 48% disapproval and 43% approval, which is down 2.

I'm starting to believe you just post this idiotic drivel as a parody of the left.

Republicans have made it difficult to get access to birth control in some states.

Really? Which states? Name them.

You blame Obama for unemployment, so that means you believe he should forcefully make the job creators create jobs

==============

That is one of the dumber things I've read, and you keep posting it.

==============================================

Really? Here is how things were going just prior to the Democrats taking control of Congress.

Tax revenues are climbing twice as fast as the administration predicted in February, so fast that the budget deficit could actually decline this year.

The main reason is a big spike in corporate tax receipts, which have nearly tripled since 2003, as well as what appears to be a big increase in individual taxes on stock market profits and executive bonuses.

On Friday, the Congressional Budget Office reported that corporate tax receipts for the nine months ending in June hit $250 billion — nearly 26 percent higher than the same time last year — and that overall revenues were $206 billion higher than at this point in 2005.

==============

So are you just ignorant, or willfully lying? Or both?

Republicans are fighting for this crazy idea of protected innocence fueled by theocratic beliefs. Separation of church and state was created for a reason. Enforcing theocratic totalitarian authoritarian views on me is ok but enforcing liberal libertarian views is wrong? I hate being forced to buy car insurance but I know it’s for my own good. Who cares about how much money Obama adds to the trillions already spent? 1 trillion or 5 trillion is impossible to pay back anyway no matter who the puppet in office is. It’s all bills that have to be paid and ideas that have to be paid for that were created before he was ever in office.

You blame Obama for unemployment, so that means you believe he should forcefully make the job creators create jobs or let the job creators control and dictate the president of the united states by bitching and moaning to get their way. Obama inherited the problems with the Middle East, refineries are shutting down, and Iran is a pain in the behind that no one can control. So, gas prices are out of his control and if the US drilled every possible drilling opportunity, it would only drop gas prices by a few cents. There are also environmental reasons for not expanding offshore drilling. I assume it has to do with oil disasters, protecting people, and the coastal economy. Until republicans and democrats can agree on energy independence, things will never change. What else have you heard in the bubble that you live in?

I’m for less dumbasses being born, if giving out birth control stops that from happening, then I’m all for it. In your list, you blame obama for unemployment, right? Which means you believe obama creates jobs? I don’t want to hear he is creating regulations that prevent job creators for creating jobs. That’s BS. I interpret it as the job creators are acting like terrorists and are holding the United States hostage until they get their way and are shipping jobs overseas to make a bigger profit and safe a few bucks. Sounds a little like treason. In order for people not to need food stamps, they must have a way to make money and with the job creators not creating jobs, then that will never happen. The amount of people on food stamps also has to do with the increase of babies being born the increase of the population, job creators not creating jobs, and lack of a decent fair paying wage. I remember seeing dozens of republican’s agreeing with scott walker on eliminating wisconsin’s contraceptive equity law a while back ago. I’ve seen republicans come out in support of the “Personhood movement” to make all abortions illegal even in the case of rape and incest, which would make some forms of birth control pills banned. Republican Rick Santorum said…”One of the things I will talk about, that no president has talked about before, is I think the dangers of contraception in this country.” Santorum has also said, “Many of the Christian faith have said, well, that’s okay, contraception is okay. It’s not okay. It’s a license to do things in a sexual realm that is counter to how things are supposed to be.” A loud applause and cheers by republicans followed this. More theocratic BS being forced on the American people. The deficit: Under bush, it was 10 trillion and now it’s 15 trillion. Wow a five trillion-dollar difference and if a republican is elected it will be another 10+ trillion at the end of his term also. Therefore, your list is nothing but pointless garbage from inside the bubble.

=============

For the 4th time, no.

I don’t want to hear he is creating regulations that prevent job creators for creating jobs. That’s BS

==================

It is "BS" in the sense it is true. Example:

Additionally, nearly half of small-business owners point to potential healthcare costs (48%) and government regulations (46%) as reasons.

Example:

Ohio based FirstEnergy Corporation announces it will close three coal fired power plants in West Virginia by this fall.   The closings come directly from the impact of new federal EPA regulations. 

================

Those are facts. You don't like facts.

GenOn Energy Inc. in 2015 will close electric generating stations in Upper Mount Bethel Township and Glen Gardner due to the cost of upcoming environmental regulations, according to a news release sent this morning to politicians in affected communities.

Thank you for revealing that lefitsts really don't care about deficit spending or the debt. Also, in reality an increase of that size is a big difference considering Obama is on track to double the national debt.

===================================

Rick Santorum also said:

“The bottom line is my position is very clear,” Santorum told Fox News host Greta van Susteren. “I’ve had a consistent record on this of supporting women’s right to have contraception. I’ve supported funding for it.”

Santorum said he had “deeply held beliefs” on the issue of contraception, but noted that he didn’t look to the government to impose his moral views.

“Only when there are real consequences to society or to the  rights of individuals do I feel a need to speak out,” Santorum said. “And that’s why I do on the issue of abortion because we have another — we have another person involved in the decision.”

“But the issue of contraception, that’s not the case,” he added. “It’s something that people have a right to do in this country. And it certainly will be safe to do so under the Santorum presidency.”

The President is what people in their own minds want him to be. You have concluded he isn't worthy of the position. When he is elected to a second term I will be very happy and excited about the prospects that this will bring. You however will sulk, make up more lies, blame the liberals and cry all day...and for the next four years. President Obama will go down as one of the greatest Presidents in history...and you will be known for 8 long years of apathy and wailing.
