Barack Obama building a wall lableed "Obama Agenda"
And despite what politicians, political analysts and pundits have been saying for weeks, if not months, most of the voters themselves claimed that the election was not a referendum on the president. A minority of the voters — 37 percent — said that expressing opposition to Mr. Obama was a factor in their vote, but an equal number said that the president was not a factor in their votes at all. Nearly a quarter said they voted the way they did in part to express support for the president.
This comic is totally totally what the American people want. *
Just glad the looniest of loons, save Paul, didn’t make it in.
the next panel will be the racist teapublicanbagger and his glass wrecking ball being dashed into a bizillion pieces on President Obama’s agenda.
Fear not my liberal friends…
How can telling the Republicans to ‘sit in the back’ be a considered a racist comment? ( Assuming that happened, which I doubt. )
The Republicans are a political party, not a RACE.
Unless…that’s how the Republicans think of themselves, as a race apart.
Simon, I think they do. They seem to think they are better than the rest of us and that is why they act with such extreme hubris.
They need to learn tolerance.
Oh yes, I noticed a long time ago, that the average Repub seems to think that what’s outside their own door is representative of the entire country – sometime the entire, frinkin’ WORLD.
F’rinstance, how many times have you heard this one:
“Global warming my A**!, it’s 20 below outside today.”
Or the claim made by one of our resident conservatives that the Blue Dogs did better across America than the average Dem…based on the results in HIS local elections.
^WHY are you choosing this particular moment to sum up all your posts for the last two years?
Ah, pavlov watches Fox News. Obama was referring to backseat drivers in cars, and Fox pretends he is making a racist comment referring to the back of the bus. Even though Michael Steel said explicitly that the Democrats would have to sit in the back of the bus, and Fox said nothing. Gee…how “fair and balanced” of them…
“I’ve read all your posts since the election, and you are in deep denial.”
Harley, I’m “rich”…yet I favor the remnants of “Obamacare” that still grants health care to the millions that don’t have it.
I favor Wall Street regulation, even though Boner wants to get rid of it in order to make his donors richer.
I favor environmental policies that attempt to get rid of pollution, even though people like you want to promote pollution in order to help polluting corporations.
Don’t denigrate all the rich, Harley…especially since you normally promote their interests.
Carlson shows Obama doing a laboror’s job which is innacurate to start. Obama is a rich, entitled elite who has never physically worked hard for anything. He’s been given everything from high paying, cushy jobs, to sweet real estate deals, and high dollar book deals before he has accomplished much of anything. His wife the same.
Motive, he said nothing about back seat driving he said they will have to sit in the back if they are coming with us. If you know history, it is a racist comment. It is unacceptable for Steele to reference it as well. Nobody could say that about him without being torn apart and called a racist. Where do you get spin like that?
“He’s been given everything from high paying, cushy jobs, to sweet real estate deals, and high dollar book deals before he has accomplished much of anything. His wife the same.”
You just described most of Congress. Besides, it’s a metaphor.
It’s disingenuous to keep calling it “Obamacare”, Tigger, since what was finally passed was far more a Republican bill than what Obama initially proposed.
Just one question. Why should I work for a living to pay other peoples health care, food bills, heating bills and then end up not being able to pay for mine because of all the taxes to support the above? What is fair about that ?
Anthony, far left Democrats may not have gotten 100% of what they wanted in the health care bill, but it is also disingenous to call it a Republican bill. Republican options were not considered.
Plus, you know you will get it to where you need it now that the base is implemented. It will just take time to get most corporations to kick people off of current insurance plans onto some sort of public option. This election may have been a slight hiccup in that goal.
What public option? That was one of the major parts jettisoned to appease Republicans.
And saying Republican options “were not considered” is just crazy. Appeasing Republicans is why the bill is now insurance-company friendly, and doesn’t include the public option.
And the Republicans still didn’t vote for it, a lesson that the stupid Democrats seemed to have missed.
Here’s the bottom line:
If you want to pull your agenda off you have to be smart enough to do it.
Narrowminded, indeed. Excellent choice for your name.
How do you like your tea ? With 0ne lump or two ?
America’s greatest problem now is that they fail to realize that there is a World outside their boundaries and they have to live with it.
Canada is very similar to the US, but it’s a start.
