So you're saying Obama's a better Republican than most Republicans?
 
2013-07-31 11:16:59 AM  
It's almost as if a decades-long trend didn't stop when Obama came to office.

I bet his push to raise the minimum wage is just some underhanded trick to make the rich richer.

A rat done but my sister Nell
and Obama's in the White House
 
2013-07-31 11:37:19 AM  
You say "Obama" but all I can think is "Boehner's Congress."
 
2013-07-31 11:37:28 AM  
We should kill them all and take their things.
 
2013-07-31 11:38:19 AM  
And this surprised who, exactly?
Obama is no friend of the American people. But he loves his banker and hedge and Fed buddies.

If it's not illegal, it's OK.
Never forget that.

Weird, I was led to believe he was the lib'rullest lib'rul to ever lib'rul a lib'rul. It's as if it were never true, and the people saying that were being disingenuous in the hopes that I'd be naïve enough to follow their line of thinking afterward, with no questions asked.

It's almost as if during the Great Recession all the Job Creators™ hoarded their money while laying off people left and right because of uncertainty.
 
2013-07-31 11:39:26 AM  
And yet the poor in the United States still own smart phones and get free food/housing. The truly impoverished in the States are so far below the poverty line that they could reasonably be removed from these studies as statistical outliers.
 
2013-07-31 11:39:59 AM  
False flag operation.  He'll sit in the white house for 7½ years letting the rich get richer then when everyone thinks he is no longer a problem, BAM Marxist, Maoist paradise!

Best Republican president since Eisenhower.
 
2013-07-31 11:40:36 AM  
Gee, ya don't think it might have something to do with the fact that Obama hasn't changed ANY tax laws, except for allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire six months ago?

Who'd have thought...?

It's a big ship that takes time to turn. It's going to take more than a small increase in the upper tax rate to bring her around.

So let's propose some type of "Grand Bargain" to liberate that idle capital to create jobs.  We'll start with, let's see, lower corporate tax rates!  So you have more idle capital to create jobs!


Wait....

That's a start, but we also need to defund planned parenthood so more people can be jerb creators.
 
2013-07-31 11:45:47 AM  
And this why the progressives fail at everything. They have their guy in there and they can't even produce healthcare legislation that is even progressive. Even the Green Party has gotten better results nationally.

NPR, NEA, PBS, EPA - there are literally quadrillions of agencies that have been living high on the hog for years under Maobama Fartqueeferstain.

They also have refrigerators. Truly it's awesome to be poor.

I wish people, Obama included, would realize that this song and dance about "lowering corporate tax rates to create jobs" is the same basic principle as paying a contractor BEFORE they actually do the work. Only stupid people do that.

Wait...

Well there is a wacky theory that the government in the US is solidly right wing and any social spending is calculated to be just enough so that people don't riot. Of course there is not universal agreement - the most right wing of lawmakers *want* people to riot.

"income gap"

The only people who give a shait about an "income gap" are haters and Farklibs. As long as the poor now are better off than they've been in the past, why complain? Answer: jealousy.

Right...he just used the progressives to get elected to office and took many of his staffers from their ranks. Either that or progressives are so stupid that they don't know when they are being lied too.

Well now that this thread has been polluted all to hell, would it look weird if I started eating my lunch 10 minutes early?  Cause I'm starving over here.

This is not the change we were hoping for.

Since IBD is reporting this, I assume the gap is closing, the United States has ceased to be a real place, and Sarah Palin is president of Alaskastan.
 
2013-07-31 11:53:25 AM  
The president has been decrying the growing gap between rich and poor in the U.S. to help sell his retread tax-and-spend proposals. But those policies have already produced record levels of income inequality.

Yeah, sure, it's all those "tax-and-spend" proposals* -- that produced inequality, not the refusal of the Republican-led Congress to pass any real jobs bills or their attempt to hold the economy hostage with their debt ceiling standoff.

* what taxes?

Nope, the change you were hoping for was a return to Jim Crow and lynchings.

Once you free-month-subscribe to Investors News, getting off their list (or stopping papers from coming) is like trying to remove sick dog poop from your shoe -- it never quite goes away -- then you get it on your hand, your hair, your teeth and your keyboard.

He convinced them by not campaigning as a progressive. Sounds legit.

People to the left of Obama voting for Obama isn't really news. It may or may not surprise you that some of Obama's fiercest critics are those to his left.

Appatently running as a centrist moderate is progressive. This is what the Tea Tards actually believe.

2013-07-31 12:00:12 PM  
I honestly think the GOP's throwing all sorts of shiat in Obama's presidency just so they can say in 2016 "Well, Dubya wasn't that bad!".

Yeah, real liberals. People that have the balls to both call themselves and promote liberal ideals. Progressives are nothing more than scared school children who no longer want to be called liberal because being a proud liberal became too hard.
