    Just keep cutting those oil company taxes. Tea baggers are pea brained racists.



  2. 2

    I couldn't make out anything he said.



  3. 3

    URself? Please Perez. Use proper language.

    I'll wait for someone to peel away that music… hail to the chief or something? It was funny that he was continuing to debate through all the glad handing of actual supporters. Say what you will about Obama, but he will speak to you about things. Most other politicians ignore it. His approach of progress does come at the expense of rigid principles, but he passes legislation, which does progress the objective by furthering policy.

    Fuck those loony TEA BAGGERS. They are homegrown Terrorists! They are just Koch Bros. mouth pieces. Tea Baggers SUCK. Let them have the SOUTH and we can be a split nation. The south is a shithole anyways!

    Impossible to hear anything.

    Isn't the whole problem that we need to unite and get over these left wing/right wing debates that are going NOWHERE? It's time to get over this BS and compromise as everyone's intention is to improve the US and get us out of this mess!! Calling our own peers terrorists isn't helping. And @chadlybrown- I'm from the south and am completely offended by your comment. We are all American's- let's act like it!!



  9. 9

    He should have asked the tea party morons how they escaped the loony bin.



  10. 10

    Obama is a douche!

    I live in the south too (very temp) AND IT is A SHITHOLE. ESPECIALLY the confederate flag flying tea baggers in TN. You say we should "all get along?" Eff that. I'm not getting along with racist homophobic idiots who cant spell and live like idiots. take the south and lets pretend the civil war was a draw! you live your way and we will be civilized in the north.

    Re: chadlybrown – Ignorance such as yours is what fuels idiotic "movements" such as the Tea Party. They are just Republicans with a wig on. Guess what… Republicans are everywhere, not just in the South. Unfortunately, citizens do not need to have an education to vote, which is why we end up in the messes that we are in.. with nicknames for an already established party that needs a disguise to continue its damage on this country.

    Re: chadlybrown – You lived in the south temporarily and you come to the conclsion that the south is a shithole. Wow brilliant deduction. You must be a rhodes scholar. More people move from the north to the south than vice versa. Believe me we don't fucking want you either.



  16. 16

    Heated exchange?



  17. 17

    Hey Mildred!
    What Pa?
    That ass is out of the barn again!

    The guy speaking to him is there for his own gain and no one body else. He keeps looking at the camera and clearly has his career in mind. The thing that Obama did is speak to them. The previous administration would have run them out. P.S. Tea Party you don't like big government unless its for your own gains. Also we are in 2 wars. How can you have a small government during war time.



  19. 19

    Re: chadlybrown – I'm not a teabagger, but i do live up north and it sucks. If you want to find someone to blame for this awful economy that we are in its obama's fault! When he was campaigning he stated our troops would come home!! Now we are in 3 wars..he also stated in a speech that he has traveled to 57 states..last i looked we had 50..so if you wanted to cal someone f*in stupid there you go.. He is an embarrasement to us and i can't believe he represents us!!! Not to mention he disrespects our military…nothing should have been said about seal team 6, now are poor men are in greater danger, the ones that let you speak your mind. So stop putting other people down and start enjoying your freedom because it's assholes like you that are going to ruin it for the rest of us sane people…oh and i haven't seen any teabagger being violent,,you must be talking about the people that want communism!!!



  20. 20

    …they are terrorists…



  21. 21

    Re: Austin TX – just so you know we are in 3 wars and we can't afford it. Obama said our troops were to come home, not have more wars. He's gone on more vacations then any president, who's money do you think paid for that? Now this bus trip across america, who pays for that too..probably us! As for the tea baggers, they only want us americans to keep our freedom, i don't see what is wrong with that?? I also haven't seen anyone of them being violent so why are people saying they are? The ones in the street fighting with police and being rude aren't tea baggers so…..??



  22. 22

    Re: Shannon92 – i thought terrorist wear bombs and want to kill people, not want peace and wave flags… think you need to read more about what a true terrorist is..remember 9/11 or did you forget?



  23. 23

    Not a tea partier myself, but the adminsitration (and the usual tribe of morons here) branding them as "terrorists" is beyond the pale. They're not terrorists. They disagree with you on the subject of government size, power, and expense.

    Honestly, I consider the knee-jerk actions of those who've flipped out and labelled them terrorists, know-nothings, and racists as a far more dangerous development than the tea party movement. It's the conscious decision to attempt to thwart debate and isntead to demonize anyone anywhere who disagrees whith you that is frightening, not people who, in my opinion, have gone over the edge with their libertarianism.

    President Debt-Man-Walking announces formation of Department of Jobs*.
    -
    Hard to believe that someone who organized and agitated people to attack banks, investors and businesses would be such an economic disaster, isn't it?
    -
    I wonder if Steve Jobs will be thr new Czar of Jobs?
    -
    *The Department of Jobs is not to be confused with the Department of Labor, whose chief task these days is reminding Americans periodically, why the feds are desperate enough to consider something as stupid as a Department of Jobs in the first place."

    they refuse to call every islamic ahole who blows himself up a terrorist. but christians who believe in the constitution…yeah call them terrorists. thats whaty you do if youre a communist. and the amount of ignorant hateful losers on here is unreal. so entitled to all your free stuff. go work you lazy shits.

    hope the tea dude has been praying with Bachmann's husband…



  27. 27

    they are terrorists. They just have more power. They kept the country hostage during the debt ceiling debate. Why does a small minority group of right wing fanatics have the power to hold up Washington for their own aims. No other group is deliberately stopping progress for their own brownie points. So ridiculous.

    EVERYBODY Hate the Tea Party…. except KKK rednecks.



  29. 29

    You people need to stop regurgitating all the talking points crap spoon-fed to you by the liberals and media. Doing so just reveals how gullible and simple minded you are. The Tea Party are just average folks seeking fiscal responsibility, to reduce the size of government, and return the country to its founding principles. Its funny that people call them terrorists when the President used to hang around with a real terrorist.

    Nonsense.

    FIRST: For TWO years, Barry held unopposed Democrat super majorities in Congress and the Senate and still couldn't deliver a budget!
    -
    SECOND: The last election the Teaparty folks sent 64 (SIXTY-FOUR) "Tea Party" Republicans to Congress. A lousy fucking 64…out of 535.
    -
    So, Obumbler's excuse for being a failure is that he can't overcome 64 people?
    And having failed to do so, he wants us to EXTEND his contract (aka: re-elect him) so he can go right on failing?
    -
    Barry's claim that anything bad is always "somebody else's fault" is ludicrous…but even if it wasn't, his admission that he is POWERLESS in the face of opposition is horseshit.
    -
    Time you start admitting that this guy is an empty suit or a really good Marxist destroying and transforming America.

    P.S. - Only 22 out of the 64 Teaparty Republicans voted against Obama and held firm.
    The rest, the remainaing 42 Teaparty Republicans folded like a cheap suit.

    Tne Scum Baggers are on their way out!

    So sick of all this crap…for all of you who are against corporations and wanting more taxes for them, KNOW that it's the very reason no new jobs are being created by those corporations…poor people do not hire anyone. Only with incentives will corps. expand, just the way of the business world. The economy is shit and Obama is set to flush what remains. I'm gonna go with Romney for prez.



  36. 36

    Wow - For such an eloquent speaker, Obama sure screwed up that opportunity to look presidential.



  37. 37

    Re: envy230 – you are a mental retard. Fox news, much? We are in the state we are in due to 30 years of bad economic policy… beginning with the right wing hero Ronald reagan taking the US from being the world's largest creditor to being the world's largest debtor. The right wing spent like freakin' drunken sailors when they had control of all three branches of government… all the while claiming it was a "boom." If it was a boom, they should have been CUTTING spending. I can't believe idiots like you don't see that, without the actions Obama and his admin have taken, we would be splatted at the bottom of a cliff.
    .
    Oh, and btw, we are in the process of leaving iraq and will have been drawing down in afghanistan and will eventually be out of there too. Or are you one of those retards that thinks the military can just up and move 100s of thousands of troops overnight?



  38. 38

    Re: VinnyD – where were they when bush and congress were spending us into oblivion, overseeing the largest increase in the size of federal government in DECADES? Where were they when their hero, Ronnie Raygun was taking the U.S. from being the world's largest creditor to being the world's largest debtor? They have no credibility… they are just pissed because he's BLACK and he's got a "D" after his name.

    Re: candyapples – you are an idiot. Corporations often pay little or not taxes. GE paid NO taxes this year in spite of billions in profits. Effective corporate tax rates are at the lowest since before the depression.
    .
    The reason jobs aren't being created here is because american workers expect a decent wage and benefits. A programmer in the U.S. expects 70k a year plus bennies, same guy in Shanghai would shit his pants for 7k and no bennies.
    .
    The real job creators are NOT corporations… they are small to medium businesses. THEY are the entities that should be getting tax breaks and incentives.

    Re: envy230 – Hi Envy - everyone knows that the current president's job is to unscrew all the broken lightbulbs from the previous president's reign. That is how it's always been - you have to take a look at history before you start calling everyone assholes. Obama stepped into a rattlesnake hole that had been poked with a stick for many years - you don't just recover from something like that overnight. You have to work at it. We didn't get where we are today because of Obama. At least he has the balls to try to introduce something new, instead of the same old shit that doesn't work. People want change but don't want to sacrifice or try a new approach. As far as your belief on tea baggers wanting Americans to keep their rights, where do you think they stand on LGBT rights or a person's choice regarding abortion? You should really check out the Libertarian party if you simply want everyone to have "rights".

    The best jobs I have ever had was when I worked for wealthy individuals and/or corporations as an Executive Secretary. I made big bucks at Oracle. $90K+ benefits.
    -
    I spread my salary around to!
    Nordstorms. Neiman Marcus. Nice cars.
    $300 highlights at the hairdressers.
    Going to most concerts and raves in San Francisco and everywhere.
    Fake nails, makeup.
    Wine by the case, booze, pot.
    Shit loadS of food at Whole Foods.
    Restaurants. Fast Food. Starbucks.
    Trips every weekend to Sonoma or Hearst Castle.
    We spent shitloads of money in Silicon Valley, CA
    -
    I'm retired now and we're on one income now.
    We do NONE of the above because we're too afraid to spend ANY money.
    -
    I dye my own hair (horrors) and shop at Walmart.
    Other than buying ammo and going to the Gun Show at Will Rogers Stadium in Ft. Worth, none of that money gets trickled down to my hairdresser or anybody.
    -
    Class warfare is dumb.
    Now, everyone has the equal opportunity of being poor and miserable you dumbasses.
    Americans have lost confidence in their Government.

    NIXON RESIGNED FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY.
    IT'S NOW TIME FOR OBAMA TO RESIGN FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY.

    Re: JJJJJR1
    How the hell did the tea party hold anybody hostage during the debt ceiling talks? They were outnumbered by 2/3!!! I can't believe all of the hate on here. Tea Party people are not terrorists. Terrorists are what drove those planes into the World Trade Center buildings and into the Pentagon and a field in Pennsylvania. Liberals preach tolerance, but they sure as hell can't give it. They take, take, take and give nothing of value.

    A piece of crap can dress in a suite but its still looks like crap. Seriously baggers, suits? Teabggers are nothing more than domestic terrorists. Ready to destroy this country so they can turn it it their vision of an Ayn Randian utopia. Why are they always fat & white?



  44. 44

    Please, I just want a job - laid off after 20 years and had to train my Indian replacement. Why can no one give me a job? I will vote for whoever looks like they can create jobs but it does not look like this Tea Party group is into helping the economy in a meaningful way.

    Re: TheMrsBradPitt – Wow…do you think insults automatically validate the ignorant views you have? No need to get all butt-hurt about Obama's failures. And "Corporations often pay little or not taxes." Huh? GE (YOUR example) takes huge losses in the U.S. with GE Capital and that balances out their oversea gains. Maybe you could follow along if you understood our tax system. When you add in state taxes, the U.S. has the highest tax burden among industrialized countries(35%). China's rate is just 25%; Ireland's is 12.5%. Exxon paid $15 billion, or 47% of pretax earnings.Chevron and ConocoPhillips paid out more than half their earnings in income taxes. The oil companies are oddities because many of the oil-rich countries where they do business levy even higher taxes than the U.S. See, the companies stay where the taxes are lowest. Now do you get it?
