madest-"You have the logic of a racist."

So, repeating your own logic back to your is `racist`s. Interesting.

madest-"You`re vicious towards the guy because you don`t like the color of his skin"

Let`s see: I didn`t like Carter, Hillary or Bill Clinton, or Obama for pretty much the same reasons. What do they have in common? (hint: not skin color).

madest-"where the only racists are black people."

Hmmm, seeing as I never said that, you`re just making up shat as you go along.

madest-"Perhaps if you tried to look past the color of the presidents skin"

Hey, I`ve got his dumb stances, lousy ideas, horrible record and abyssmal performance to dislike.

YOU, cannot win an argument based on his stances, ideas, record or performance, so MUST focus on his skin color. The racist car is all you got, and you have no idea how bad it`s failing.

I just wish he worried about America

Yeah I`m a pedophile. You have the logic of a racist. Attack attack attack. Let me ask, have you ever given Obama a break? Certainly you gave Bush several breaks even though he proved early on that he was retarded. Think about it. You`re vicious towards the guy because you don`t like the color of his skin and that makes him unrelatable to a pinhead like you. In typical racist fashion you point to the democrats racist past without mentioning the switch of positions during the civil rights era. Now you`re living in some fantasy backwater where the only racists are black people. Look man you`re too evolved for such nonsense. Perhaps if you tried to look past the color of the presidents skin you`d find someone more appealing than some rich douche who considers you nothing more than a servant to his well being.

The impetus isn`t on me to prove that you are a child molester it should be on you to prove you`re not. (hey, that bull comes in handy).

madest-"but all racists are conservative"

KKK, started by democrats.

"Typical White Person"-Obama.

"A handkerchief-head, chicken-and-biscuit-eating Uncle Tom." -- Spike Lee

I don`t see racists around every corner. I think the nation has gotten over racism for the most part. In fact I can name several conservative IABers that aren`t racist. You`re not one of them MeGrendel and the impetus isn`t on me to prove that you are racist it should be on you to prove you`re not. I don`t give a crap that you`re a racist. Our paths would never cross if it weren`t for the internet. Not all conservatives are racist but all racists are conservative.

America is not going broke. More nonsense the rights been spewing since Obama was elected. We are an economic powerhouse. Our GDP is in excess of 14 trillion. It`s a constant. It`s our credit. Democrats are fixing the deficit that the republicans created in spite of republicans desire to see America fail so they could blame Obama. They are traitors and their defenders are stupid.

normalfreak: If the private sector of healthcare was not burdened with large amounts of paperwork, huge malpractice insurance costs and the demands of unnecessary testing to cover their ass on their diagnosis, then healthcare costs would drop precipitately.

Tort reform would help a lot, repealing and replacing Obamacare also a necessary step.

Markust you and I both agree that the govt is going broke, Obamacare is projected to accelerate that. On top of which the Fed continues to print money which devalues our currency and decreases purchasing power overall. Based on govt debt alone one of two things are going to happen:

a)The govt is eventually going to scrap most of the programs especially OASDI and HHS.

b)The govt isn`t going to address the above two fiscal time bombs and is going raise taxes so high it`s going drive capital away.

The private sector is rightfully worried about outcome "b" because usually when govt fails there are calls for MORE govt. If the govt wasn`t running deficits like it is now growth would be A LOT higher.

What are you talking about. How can you disagree when the numbers prove you wrong? Everything HG has shown you proves it is getting better. The only thing that is not getting better is the debt and that is 100% because the two sides will not come to a consensus on a balanced approach. Congress on both sides are f*cking us on that one. No matter who gets in they will have to work together to cut spending and increase revenue. This can not wait another 4 years.

I don`t disagree with what you are saying.

Here are my points, let me know if you disagree with any of these:

Obama took office in the middle of the worst recession since the 30s.
Obama did not cause it.
The recession stopped getting worse within Obama`s first year.
Almost all economic indicators have gotten better since.

Now if we agree on those things let`s admit that the Obama`s first term was spent fixing. I for one, would like to see what he can do with the next 4 years. I`d like to see if things keep improving. I think he did good enough fixing things to get an opportunity to keep going.

I`ll be the first to tell you, blaming it on Bush is over. Things are basically back to the way they were before he took office. From this point forward it is all on him. No excuses. I think he deserves a shot.

Okay you`re *partially* right, I did actually misread that graph. In fact that dip is attributed to Bush`s portion of the bailout.

In fact both Bush and Obama get the blame for stunting economic growth. Here`s why,
From your source: 1989 to 2005 term the economy in terms Nom GDP per capita was growing at around 4.19% yearly. From Bush`s term onward and towards your projection it goes to 2.47%.

Clinton`s rate was 4.46%
Bush in his first term was 5.79%
In the second term it was 2.91%
Obama so far 3.74%

The real GDP growth numbers tell a slighty different story.

HG: The GDP Growth rate has been stunted under Obama, it`s under 2%, right now, and has not been above 3% in the last 4 years. The GDP growth rate needs to be over 4% a year just to keep up with normal inflation.

You may want to look more carefully at your own chart. GDP per capita starts going down in 2007 it starts going up again in 2009.

Were you under the impression Obama was president in 2007? Or did you just read the chart wrong?

The ad is pretty silly, but this whole thing has become an issue because Romney said he wanted to make budget cuts, and when pressed for examples, he couldn`t come up with much more than this. The point is that if he`s going to make the claim that he wants to cut the federal budget, he needs to back it up with serious examples, not something that takes up a miniscule portion of the overall budget.

So it`s his own fault for not presenting a real plan.

"We`re out of money folks. Things need to change and change now."

I would absolutely agree with you. If Romney had a plan to make hard cuts everywhere that actually made a difference, I would applaud him. But it is kind of a joke to say you want to fix the debt by cutting PBS. $445 Million a year would be $4.5 Billion over a decade. Great. He is saving us $4.5 Billion. Every little bit helps. Except he wants to INCREASE defense spending over $2 Trillion. That is 445 decades of PBS subsidy. That is why I don`t take him seriously. That is why the big bird thing is a joke. It is a ridiculous talking point by a man that will increase the debt like every president before him.

Does ANYONE in their right mind think we need to INCREASE defense spending?

Nice quote, too bad you only bring it up when it works for you. It kind of reminded me of when Obama wanted to repeal subsidies for big oil, and idiots like Lou Dobbs criticized him for wanting to cut $4 billion in tax breaks for Big Oil. According to Lou, "That’s only 0.0008 percent of the $5 trillion Obama’s added to the deficit" even though it`s actually like 0.08%.

So basically, criticize him for wanting to end some subsidies on the same grounds you advocate cutting other subsidies. Brilliant.

You don`t have to "disband" the military to cut spending. How about we stop hiring Haliburton to do the laundry and let troops wash their own clothes like they used to. That`s a start and pleny of other Haliburton projects could get cut. Oh, what`s that... Dick Chaney makes gazillions of dollars from those contracts? Well I guess we have to leave those alone.

I don`t think anyone would disagree DromEd that there are a lot of hard cuts that we need to do but why is it always all or nothing with Republicans? Why can`t it be, we`re going to cut 1/3 of the PBS subsidy? And 1/2 the next year so they can phase in the new cuts. But no, it`s cut it all. It`s not just Romney it`s Republicans in congress.

Because you leftists will surely scream fool and foul bloody murder if we try and cut any of that. So what does that leave? Defense? I`m all for doing some defense cutting but we`ll not solve our problems even if we cut it to nothing. And if you want to see real economic hardship try finding a job or affordable house after some crazy fool and his cohorts nukes DC and NY.

Regardless, don`t defend PBS and swear that it is the most important tv network out there, just because Romney said he would cut it.

markust123, I didn`t say PBS did... I said Sesame Street did.

Also, it`s called PUBLIC Broadcasting Service... funded by the public... it`s not GBS or Government Broadcasting Service. If the public really wants that station to be in operation, they`ll donate.

Government shouldn`t be funding television stations at all in my opinion. Period.

"...You make a big election about small things."

Taking away funding for public broadcasting is not a small thing. And it is not a partisan issue. There are very few Americans that have not benefited from PBS. I bet Romney watched PBS growing up as a kid and as a teen watched PBS movies with his parents. A lot of things need to be trimmed down in the Federal budget but this is not one of them.

"People are idiots. Sesame Street makes billions of dollars off of merchandise. Why should the government help fund "Big Sesame Street"?"

If PBS was making billions of dollars off merchandising why would they have to beg for money from their viewers each year? PBS barely breaks even. Link

There`s no way that`s real. It`s sad that people think this is an actual political ad.

PBS has demanded that Obama cease his unauthorized use of their intellectual property.

Yes, f*ck you people who can`t afford cable. Romney is taking your Masterpiece Theater. Romney is taking your Nova. Romney is taking your shows that teach you to cook healthier. Romney is taking your kids Sesame Street. Romney is taking your Sid the Science Kid...

Also yes the Sesame Workshop does make a lot of money from product licensing, but not enough to cover expenses. They earned about $45 million in merchandising during 2010.

Or maybe it is just that Romney`s policies (the ones he has actually given us any details about) are too outrageously stupid to pass up criticism.
