It No work.
You have to replace the **** with what you know it should read...
Honestly, all the points they mention, while nice, is about as far far away from what Obama ran on with Trans formative change on how Government works.
He said he was going to Change how our country was run, and he didn't he promptly kept the status quo... This is why everyone feels let down, and that let down turned into Incumbent Hate... which you will see today.
Yes he appointed a CTO... he appointed Lots of things... which to me just means more government spending with not a damn good thing to show for it.
I voted for him becuase I wanted the lobbyist sout of government, I wanted my voice heard, I wanted a return to Main Street Politics where the people mattered, and it never happened.
And I won't vote for him again.
Which all doesn't matter becuase Ron Paul is going to lay down some knowledge bombs in 2012 and turn this country upside down. He can't be silenced this campaign coming up, he's too famous now, and with a full slate of Tea Party candidate in the Senate and House...
But He Has Such A Beautiful Smile
Anybody That Makes Mush Mouth Matthews Legs Throb Should Be President
He Is Also America's "First" Thats The Reason He Was Elected Thats All The Slobbering Fawners Cared About.
GOD SAVE AMERICA
BY THE PEOPLE AND FOR THE PEOPLE
Ron Paul would be the only guy I could think of that might make me vote republican.
any one of the other a-holes they stroll out will not make a difference.....Romney, Palin, Pawlenty, Gingritch? all will lose to Obama...Ron Paul?,...coiuld give him a run.
Michelle grew a garden with animal poo.
Barry got Zeituni a new country.
but Harry...... he won the "Nobel Peace Prize"
YouTube - Obama's speech after accepting Nobel Peace Prize
Harry you need to watch!
Welp, your link doesn't work. These do.
Here's AOL on the top 5
Obama's 5 Most Far-Reaching Accomplishments to Date
Here's 244 of 'em
President Obamaâ€™s 244 Accomplishments, Part 4 - Jack & Jill Politics
And you can find as many lists as you want. Feel free to dig in and complain about them - since the link works, it's a pretty simple process
But little things like Wall Street Reform, Health Care Reform, equal pay for equal work, cleaning up the Republicans' economic disaster, getting combat troops out of Iraq, etc., aren't all that important.
Around March or April, one of two things happens:
The debt ceiling is raised, or the U.S. goes into default. Ain't no two ways about it. You know what this crop of reps is going to do.
So enjoy the night, and enjoy the rhetoric and subpoenas to follow. A lot of good has happened in the last two years, and a whole new surge of idiotic rhetoric and gridlock awaits us for the next two.
But your boys have the purse strings now. I am sure we'll have a very good time yapping at each other in our outrage and enthusiasm for one position or another. It's all fun and game for a few months, and then an honest-to-God GOP majority has to figure out what it's doing:
U.S. defaults on debt, or
Teabaggers raise the debt ceiling.
I'm sure the way out of it is to complain that the only way to have assets as a government is to collect taxes, so our country can only have liabilities - constitutionally
It'll be fun!
Congrats, guys. Looking forward to '12 already.

Is your avatar Palpatine?? He looks a little different in that pic.
Guess you're against 'em? Why you're against equal pay for equal work, just for example, is beyond me. But given that this is a right wing circle-jerk board, let me know why you don't consider these accomplishments good things:

I left out one or two b/c I know you guys have echo-chamber nya nya nya points on them; the sorts of things like "Sure we contracted out whole wars but someone bought a legal pad without going to three competing sources so he didn't end no-bid contracting." That stuff. Haven't seen that sort of thing about the above list (scurry to google, my minions, scurry!)
I can buy that one guy who said he thought everything in Washington was going to change b/c Obama got elected... okay, fine. Every administration seems to say that, and he's taken as good a shot at it as any.
But it's ludicrous to say he's done nothing thus far, and simultaneously say he's enacted this horrible radical agenda... well, he couldn't very well have enacted some sort of radical agenda if he didn't do anything.
And to boot, he's done stuff that just isn't that radical. It's pragmatic, but a lot of it's big. He said when he was elected he'd rather get it right and be a one-term guy than do business as usual. He succeeded where just about every president since the turn of the 20th century failed, with health care. If people weren't such morons, that bill would have been that much better... but we ended up with a debate where covering the right to consider advanced directives was called a "death panel."
Like I said, enjoy the big mid-term swing. It's not the first one in American history, and it won't be the last. These guys are so ready to overplay their hand, and once you get to the House, it's grownup time. You have to make your stands, and you have to get into the guts of bills these guys pride themselves on not understanding. I doubt their staffers are much better. Hell, we won't hear them complain "nobody's read the bill" anymore, because the current crop can't read, from what I've seen.
It'll be fun
well you answered it very nicely w/ the right wing circle jerk image (big strong forearms:singing::singing:....... I like Traditional values of this party 10000000000% more than the idiot Neo-Con ideology. The Neos must go away so the party can be fixed.
I think fair pay for equal work is an illusion best kept untouched..... we can't fix
everything PNV. It is an issue that will never change.
