I am so delusional that I am a happy Wee Wee

Note: There wasn't room in the headline box, and given the obvious nature of the article I didn't think it was necessary, to provide a "Barf Alert" warning.

If the whole country mirrored this district he would be correct. Unfortunatly for Obama it does not. Not yet anyway.

He’s now officially in the denial stage. Good. Arrogant eff deserves everything that’s going to have happen in November. Carter has become a pariah these 30 years, Obama will take his place alongside ... we’ll have to come up with an ‘anti’ Mt. Rushmore so that folks can remember never to make stupid mistakes again.

A $400.00 tax credit for a single making less than $75,000.00 a year, a $800.00 tax credit for couples.

What is that!?

We want across the board tax cuts to EVERYONE!

Drastically cut corporate taxes! All taxes placed on business is passed onto the consumer in the cost of their goods and services! Only individuals pay taxes, business MUST pass this expense on or they will not be in business. THAT would not empower the federal government so it will not be considered.

It would create a robust economy though.

Obama continued to dare Republicans to run on a platform of repealing healthcare reform, telling the audience "they won't be very successful."

The only tax “cuts” went to people who already don’t pay taxes. The rest of us are paying and will continue to pay for the 47% that don’t pay squat.

I overheard an older black women telling a black man, "Looks like OUR black president will only be there one term, and we won't ever have another one."

That is sad. Someone like Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams or Herman Cain would have been really good as president.

He said “You’d think they would be saying “Thank You!”.

And the crowd roared in approbation.

Have you ever heard such arrogance?

This man is a very dangerous Marxist and fascist, and so are his supporters.

He made fun of working taxpayers, many of whom gave up a day of work to protest. You knowm, the people that pay the bills.

He is a thug and a bully, who has ever done a constructive thing in his life. He was groomed for this day, to take this power, to ram through every progressive wet dream of the last 100 years.

November 2, 2010 is the LAST peaceful chance we have to stop this runaway train in DC.

Failing that, this will not end well. The battle lines are drawn.

That “amusement” at these silly, pesky little people in the streets public squares is chillingly similar to Marie Antoinette’s famous attitude. He doesn’t get it, but he’s about to.

Someone should photoshop him as Marie A. Then we could compare to see who looks better as a woman: brocko, or little chrissy matthews.

Is he? He is only reacting in a manner that his constituents demand he act. They want this.

Our only real question is how many of them truly are there? This we don't know. I do know his Rasmussen numbers only increase the more Chavez-like he acts.

We can not be lulled into a false sense of bravado because we spend our time in echo chambers.

I guess the WH didn't do a good job communicating the tax cut to the American people.
He better make more speeches, say "Let Me Be Clear" and "Unprecedented" many more times.
Then we'll finally understand that our thin wallet is due to LOWER taxes, just like cold weather is due to global warming.

BTW, its snowing here in NH right now.

Even worse, Obama will say that a republican victory shows that people are overwhelmingly supporting his policies of hope and change.

From an AP article yesterday:

The massive economic recovery package enacted last year included about $300 billion in tax cuts over 10 years. About $232 billion was in cuts for individuals, nearly all in the first two years.

The most generous was Obama's Making Work Pay credit, which gives individuals up to $400 and couples up to $800 for 2009 and 2010. The $1,000 child tax credit was expanded to more families, and the working poor can qualify for as much as $5,657 from the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Ummmmm, those aren't "tax cuts". THEY ARE WELFARE PAYMENTS! You actually have to pay taxes in order to have them cut...

Exactly. Far too many are looking at November as a fait accompli. I am very nervous about it. I don't see the public's outrage growing at all except, as you say, in the chamber. In fact, I believe they have a plan to dole out billions in give aways just before the election getting the money from TARP. People will believe, as long as he's giving them money, that he's on their side.

The GOP is doing a hideous job of educating the populace on what this administration is doing to their future.

Only once. When LBJ wanted to escalate the Vietnam war, there was some pushback, especially in his own party. He called the opponents "Nervous Nellies". My dad was a big fan of LBJ until that point. Ever afterward, he cursed him until the day he died.

No president should ever mock the populace. Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette = exhibit A and B.

Bill Clinton made a remark on election eve of 1996 about some people who were laughing. He said something to the effect that, “I’ll bet they won’t be laughing tomorrow morning”. Clinton had a nasty attitude but he usually hid it much better than Obama does. Neither had any real respect for the people of America.

I saw the clip on FOX. he didnt look amused. He looked downright pissed. Like a king complaining his subjects are ungrateful. After all, he only took over 25% of our money and shoved a healthcare plan that we didnt want down our throats. He could have taken more, you know. We should all bow down and kiss the hem of his robe.

“I overheard an older black women telling a black man, “Looks like OUR black president will only be there one term, and we won’t ever have another one.”

Don’t care, don’t care, DON’T CARE, what color the POTUS is—just give us someone who advocates individual rights, property rights, and free markets.

At this point, I would vote for a space alien if I knew it was truly pro-American. I kid you not.

I will tell you something else. I will vote Democrat before I vote for RINO’s. If it ends up a Romney/Palin ticket I WILL VOTE FOR OBAMA! Again, I kid you not.

I’d rather face a communist than take ANOTHER knife in the back from a ANOTHER RINO.

What’s really frightening is how he and his posse are OPENLY fostering a ‘them’ against ‘us’ mentality in the country.

Also, team Obama was on message with their astroturf opposition. The hired anti-tea-party protestors mimicked their leader - “95% of Americans disagree with the Tea Party goers.” Team Obama successfully orchestrated the media yesterday to cover their talking points. 1. Obama as benevolent leader - allowing us to keep our money and 2. Tea Party people are a small minority and crazy.

Team Obama plans to continue marching over our freedoms and dismantling our constitution. Pray for the safety and strength of our leaders who try to stop them. And also, stay as focused on our goals as they are on theirs. They will try to change the subject and redirect the conversation. We need to stay on message and stay as ‘cool’ as the Obamaites. Do not allow them to change the subject.

140m file
bottom 50% of filiers pay < 3%... let’s say 0%
that means 70m people pay ALL the taxes

70m / 310m == 22%. pay for it all
