    So your telling us it’s not dumb to support obama? a complete failure? who ignored us? who lives lavishly saying “We need to sacrifice” all talk but not leading by example? Your calling us dumb? Or were the people who voted this monkey into office the ones who are now regretting their ignorant decision? LOL No, you don’t get it.

    adamaiken and legion are joining us for the obama biden 2012 ticket support cause we all believe obama biden have done a outstanding job addressing unemployment, cutting spending, giving americans back their own money, securing our borders, keeping us free by respecting the constitution, oh and not forcing us to buy into corrupt government healthcare… everyone vote obama biden 2012 if you love unemployment, to be poor, to watch your money spent on abortions, illegal wars, aliens, high crime, foreclosures, etc, etc. this is great stuff. i cannot wait to vote for obama biden 2012. THIS CHANGE IS FOR REAL.

    obviously you’re playing the “dumber” roll in the dumb &dumber duo. And apparently you must be related to the “insane one” that can’t read just like you can’t read. The only thing you seem to be able to do is sputter, spout & rant. So…rant away Vinnie & don’t forget to spout more of your lies & also please keep on confusing Bushie for Obambi. Nighty nite “dumber”

    HR 589 STILL ALIVE IN THE HWM’s COMMITTEE! KEEP EMAILING-FAXING-TWEETS AND CALLS TO YOUR US REPS IN BOTH HOUSES FOR THIS BILL TO HELP THE 99ERS AND ALSO TO STOP PROPOSED BUDGET CUTS TO SOCIAL SERVICES PROGRAMS! PRESIDENT OBAMA WILL BE REELECTED IN 2012 AND THE REPUBLICAN TEA PARTY WILL SAY AND DO WHATEVER TI TAKES TO MAKE SURE IT DOESN’T HAPPEN. NO TIME TO PLAY TIT FOR TAT WITH THE TROLLS ON OC AND OTHER WEBSITES JUST LIKE BEFORE THE NOVEMBER 2010 ELECTION SO LET THEM HAVE THEIR FUNDED FUN! #1 IS HR 589 AND STOPPING BUDGET CUTS TO THE VITAL PROGRAMS THAT (THEY) COULD CARE LESS THAN A DAMN ABOUT. 8 YEARS OF GW BUSH = LESSON LEARNED. LESSER OF “TWO” EVILS = THE DEMOCRATS.

    hey sher newsflash honey… we are already broke. whats happening right now looks like this -$20,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 when it should look like this $20,000,000,000,000,000 and so on. Notice there is no negative sign in front of the other number. But hey oh well! Don’t lose sight of our message and that is ignore the economy, unemployment, and illegal immigration … vote Obama Biden 2012!

  • Sher1 04/08/2011 1:06pm

    111th Congress INTRODUCED 3 JOBS BILLS and they were BLOCKED with ONE watered down to nothing, by the Republicans. That is FACT and the RTP can propagandize it all they want. Republicans INTRODUCED no extension of jobless benefits in this jobless economy and recession that happened under President George W. Bush who left behind $12 TRILLION dollars of debt for President Obama to clean up! That is FACT! As said before THEY will are could at talking out of both sides of their mouths and are WELL-FUNDED to shovel the manure to those who will listen but who know better. KEEP fighting for stoppage of proposed BUDGET CUTS and PASSAGE of HR 589! OBTW! 112th Congress where ARE the JOBS! AND why hasn’t a JOBS BILL been introduced yet???

  • Sher1 04/08/2011 1:09pm

    The Republican Tea Party are good at talking out of both sides of their mouths! No JOBS BILL! NO JOBS! $12 TRILLION in DEBT left behind by President Bush! Talk about debt for the 2 years of the Obama Administration in comparison to $12 TRILLION that Bush left for him to clean up!! GMAB!

    Sher, don’t worry we got enough stupid ignorant sheeple to keep our failure in office. Heck who cares if he’s destroying this country? The debt is directly from Obamas spending so you might as well hush up with that non sense because your going to get a lot of people to start asking the hard questions. Which then will result in us losing our Obama Biden 2012 ticket. You got to remain calm. Here’s how we do it. From now on lets be positive on here. Let’s tell the people if they have a headache when they wake up in the morning… It’s Bush’s fault. If their light burns out… Bush’s fault. Mom develops cancer… Bush’s fault. Lottery ticket doesn’t rake in millions… Bush’s fault. Don’t talk about debt sher cause dammit our Obama/Biden team is responsible for the creating the biggest debt in the history of the country. DON’T TALK ABOUT IT! LOOK THE OTHER WAY. NOTHING TO SEE HERE.

  • Sher1 04/08/2011 1:25pm

    Tea Party 2 yrs old: "Passing a budget is a task that requires a certain amount of compromise and sacrifice. As such, it is a task that two-year-olds are not particularly well suited to perform. Grown-up Congresses pass budgets all the time — they bicker and they argue, but in the end they realize that the functioning of the United States government and the well-being of their constituents is worth a little political sacrifice.

    But not so for the Tea Party. They wanted tens of billions of dollars in budget cuts. They got tens of billions of dollars in budget cuts. They wanted to slash funding for preschools and college scholarships and foreign aid. But that wasn’t enough. What they really wanted really wanted — was to defund Planned Parenthood and keep the Environmental Protection Agency from protecting the environment. And when they didn’t get those things, they started screaming"

WE NEED TO HIKE HEALTHCARE COSTS. THERE IS NO ECONOMIC ISSUES. EVERYTHING IS OK. PLEASE WATCH GOVT APPROVED SHOWS LIKE MSNBC AND CBS ONLY. YOU ARE NOT TO WATCH ANYTHING ELSE OR “RESEARCH” FOR YOURSELF. AGAIN, EVERYTHING IS FINE. NOTHING TO SEE HERE. EVERYTHING IS GOING GREAT IN THIS COUNTRY AND THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE IS AWESOME. IF YOU AGREE VOTE OBAMA BIDEN 2012!!!! WOOT

    Screw those fake tea party people that got elected by stealing a name so they can cut taxes on the elite some more!

    Here is a real, original, Tea Party person, whom I agree on many things with, and disagree on others, on the Dylan Ratigan show. The real Tea Party people are joining with many other groups to fight back against Wall Street and the elite.

    Veterans For Peace Endorses the April 15th Rally and Protest in Union Square Park

    Veterans For Peace has joined in endorsing “Sounds of Resistance,” a concert and protest against Wall Street banks that draws the connections between militarism, Wall Street, the wealth divide and the downward spiral of the wealth of most Americans. The event, on April 15 at 11:00 a.m. in New York City’s Union Square Park, is part of a democratic awakening that more and more Americans are joining.

    This new coalition of people from the left and the right that fight together against the ones that have, and continue to steal all the money, AKA the “elite”, should be very interesting…

  • WasMiddleClass 04/08/2011 2:09pm

    And Obama is NOT in the coalition!

    He did almost nothing I wanted, and expected him to do, but he did MANY things I didn’t expect, or want him to do!

    And there are millions on both sides that feel the same.
