As far as voter turn out. Even with all the effort Obama put into voter turn out for the last election it did not work and will not work next time. If anything his poor record will drive the other side to turn out and vote. When Obama was elected people knew nothing about him and did not care about his past. Now he cannot hide and his record will hurt him.
You're making assumptions about voter turnout without backing up any of the claims. It didn't work? There was record voter turnout, what land were you living in in 2008? It won't work again? I have no idea what you're talking about. And you're completely trivializing a piece of legislation that millions of women had hoped too see come to pass one day.

Anyway, I'd much rather be talking football than this craziness.

The live in a world of fantasy...the can't distinguish what they hope for from what will happen. Obama has real soldiers! They will come when called upon because the alternative is to be ruled by the disingenuous and incompetent GOP.


I am a ready and willing soldier...it will be a glorious victory...let's get it!

I agree with the sentiments that both parties are to blame, really they both suck imo.

but i believe that while there are more registered democrats than republicans, republicans tend to turn out and vote any chance they get while a significant portion of democrat voters only turn out for the big presendential elections (hard to get college kids, 20 somethings to bother to vote). i know i do. so i personally dont put much stock in what off year elections results show as a prediction for the voter turnout for presendential elections.

Consumer confidence at a 2yr low...

And Apple now has just about as much operating money as the USA. That's scary.

LOL...I must say losing 0.004% of his followers in one day is pretty alarming. I hope he stops spamming people real soon or it could get really ugly for him.

That also asumes they don't increase the budget and it stays flat for 10 yrs. We know that cannot happen because of Obama care. The winners are no one.
Some say that's the sign of a good deal -- but in response to the thread question: Is it just me who thinks it's shameful that things like medicare, medicaid, pell grants for students, environmental protection money are going to get slashed but there is no mention of the massive kickbacks oil companies get (ExxonMobil: $20 billion over 5 years), corporations offshoring profits to avoid paying taxes on them, and tax loopholes which help companies like GE pay $0 in federal taxes this past year (General Electric Paid No Federal Taxes in 2010 - ABC News).

Simplify the tax code so there are no loopholes, stop giving kickbacks to companies making massive profits, and just collect taxes that corporations should be paying (not the average guy on the street) -- New Jersey got something like $700 million on delinquent taxes alone when they said people could pay rather than be audited. It seems so simple!!
