I just had one of those moments when I start thinking about the direction of the country. This clueless sh*t president pisses me off royally.
Im more upset with the GOP not being able to put forth a candidate thats able to beat him.
The big issue was the economy. (jobs)
We had a choice between a failed "community organizer" and a centi-millionaire.
This country is way too populated by losers and the complicit media is just too much to overcome.

With all due respect, thats a far too simplistic answer and one that fits a Fox News narrative.
A Republican would have gotten fried over the bs in Benghazi. Obama got a pass. That's not Fox.
The country is full of people that have largely failed and they want their shot at a bigger piece of the pie. That's the way I see it. Class warfare resonates with so many. It is repugnant to me.
Hooked, you are right, but at the same it is too simplistic. You are absolutely correct about a compliant media giving Obama a pass both on Benghazi and Gun Walking for that matter. The fat cunt Candy Crowder during the second debate saved Obama's ass. Then Obama was given a fortune's worth of positive face time walking hand in hand with fat ass Chris Cristie after Sandy. That was probably what ultimately decided the election.
But on the other hand, the Chicago machine who created Obama ran a remarkable campaign. They spent the summer painting Romney as an uncaring multi-millionaire and he never shook that picture. Then they did a remarkable job plumbing social media sights and connecting with individual voters to sell their story to individual voters. They motivated their base in a way I never thought they could, turned social issues against Romney even if he was clearly a social moderate and turned possible Republican voters to vote for the loser and suppressed the Republican vote. I wish I could find the article that detailed how they did it , but the way they used the the modern electronic access to personal information was frankly brilliant.
If they can continue to repeat what they did in this election; then we are completely fucked as a country. It won't matter who the Republicans nominate.
But at the heart, I do agree with you. Obama wants to destroy the country as you and I understand it; and now he has four more years to finish the job.
That's the truth. All the talk I heard from my father about "making your own way" and just taking responsibility are seemingly a thing of the past. I never thought the United States would come to this.
Lots of IDIOT on this thread.
Now I know why I stay of 6th street both in real life and this board.

Get use to it old fogey. Your party is for old out of touch males.
so do you spit or swallow.
I'm guessing swallows.
As opposed to the brilliant news spins found on MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN ?
Give it a rest Comrade.
A lot of "loser" shows through on your post.
Level that playing field partner.
The people that took the risks, worked hard, lived the American dream and essentially built this country must be vilified.
Interesting premise - successful people don't need your kind of loser. However, the very existence of your "social justice" programs require us to survive.
Be a jackass. Bite that hand that feeds you.
I'm reminded of some Everclear lyrics.....
I think you are blind to the fact that the hand you hold is the hand that holds you down
I got brains. I got big ol' brains. I got dinosaur brains.
Obama received at least 95% of the black vote.
Unemployment among young black males is something like 17%. Obama is not helping that community but, at least he's half black. Jeesh. What a sad state of affairs.
It annoys some part of me after reading, for the last few months, that just about everyone who voted for Obama wants a handout or is entitled. I didn't personally vote because I wasn't really a fan of either candidate and I refuse to vote for either "evils" IMO, regardless of which is lesser, but I probably would have voted for Obama.
That said, I work 2 jobs, 7 days a week, varying hours from 6am-3pm during the week and 10pm-5am on the weekends and made 31$K with both jobs combined last year, no benefits, no health insurance, no retirement, paid every penny of taxes and paid in at the end of the year nearly 500$ in taxes with no handouts or assistance from any government agency. I also live in South Florida, where things here tend to be more expensive than many other places in the country. I also take full responsibility for the opportunities I missed, squandered and screwed up as well. So please quit assuming ALL people who favor, support, or voted for the current president are welfare recipients and such.
I understand though everyone's sentiments regarding entitlement programs and aid for the "poor" in this country probably better than most due to the fact of the people I work with and that work for me as well. Everyone of them just about has aid in some way shape or form but has enough money to have their hair done weekly, new $150 Nike's, and a new car every month while receiving food stamps, section 8 housing, free health care, and free child daycare as well. Then receiving a refund check for 3X the amount of taxes that they actually paid. Does this piss me the **** off to no end? Absolutely. But I don't think it will change ever regardless who's sitting in the White House.
Just FYI, I am a Independent who is along the lines of socially liberal and fiscally conservative.
Republicans arent smart.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
Congrats to you.
You had enough sense to not vote because you clearly don't understand the repercussions of your vote. I wish all middle class people were like you, but they aren't. The economic lower and middle class voted for Obama, and they are bearing the brunt of their mistake already.
Their taxes are higher, their unemployment rates are higher, and it will only get worse once Obamacare is implemented.
This is not my opinion- every thing I wrote is back up by recent economic data released and non-partisan CBO scoring.
At least we're not racist trolls like you.
I voted for Obama because he got me a free sub here.
No offense, bobbers1, I'm not looking for a congratulations.. I am just trying to relay a point that you can't lump all people who support the current President in one big cesspool of welfare and entitled Americans. He is who we have currently and it won't change as much as you would like for it to so I will try to be supportive in the things I think he is doing right and openly question the stupid decisions as well. I am lucky enough to have two jobs, although considered lower paying by some, they do pay the bills and that is more than some people can currently claim. I wasn't confident that Romney would have had any more solutions to our problems than our current President.
As far as me not understanding the repercussions, although I can't quite determine if that's a shot at me or not, I WILL not vote along any party line just because a bunch of politicians and their supporters say or think I should without actually looking at the candidate first. I will however vote for the candidate who I believe will do the country best. It just so happened that neither one of them seemed to pull ahead when it came down to it. In fact, although I don't agree with some of his crazy ****, Ron Paul had my attention the most. I just would love some common sense when it came to decision and policy making.
Just seems more and more to me that instead of "class" warfare initiated by the government, both sides of media are doing a better job at stirring up more of a political party warfare among all Americans for TV / Radio ratings.
Also Bob, the economic "lower and middle class" make up a majority of the population in the US. So would you say in this case democracy failed? There's something to be said about that statement alone unless I misinterpreted it. I could understand if you believe people were "misguided" though, but both sides of the aisle pull the same tactics. Lets also keep this civil, I am not a huge fan of internet message board trashing/trolling.
Probably not. Supporting racist losers such as yourself is not very intelligent.
I dont know about troll but I agree with the other part. Stopped reading his stuff altogether after one of his rants.
