    Near-universal healthcare, avoiding an actual depression in '08, successful completion of the bailouts of AIG (which looks like it will be profitable), the banks and other financial entities, pulling us out of Iraq and getting Detroit out of the mire.

    I'd say those things qualify as pretty successful, yeah.

    Those are numbers. Your interpretation of them as bad, given that it is devoid of historical and economic context, is also opinion. I know it seems like more than that because of the noise it makes echoing around inside your head, but it is still just an opinion.

    Essentially, mine is that it would have been a lot worse. Yours is that it could be a lot better. But you're dropping nothing but think-tank generated, rant-radio amplified opinion. Please quit pretending otherwise. It makes you look delusional.

    President Obama - shovel ready Recovery Act?

    Same sex marriage. http://themonkeycage.org/blog/2012/...-state-level-data-on-support-and-legislation/

    These are all riveting topics. The most important topics of the day though?

    Kind of like when Mitt Romney was in Colorado Springs. A local reporter's first question to him was his position on legalizing marijuana. Really? I thought unemployment, the deficit, economy. Guess I was wrong.

    Is it too late to change the P&CE tagline to: SKIN IN THE GAME!

    Universal healthcare that sixty percent of Americans don't like. That is why employers aren't hiring. Sure.

    Where does it say we avoided a depression with numbers?

    This may be my emotions talking, but it appears to me you're really, really dumb.

    They haven't experienced it yet, so they can't say they don't like it.

    This isn't actually true, so do you have statistics for that? :)

    The Germans seem to be fine with theirs. Perhaps we should look at that model for a system to model ours after and improve upon, because you know, like the Shamwow guys says, the Germans, they make great stuff

    You wouldn't be so emotional if you had more skin in the game. Finish your Doritos and get your skin in the game, dumbass.

    Can you tell me the reason why the word "tweak" appears in the opening sentence? Hint: it has to do with why the rest of the article makes it clear no one in Canada wants the mis-managed care cluster ******** we developed.

    Using tactics he decried during his original campaign for the presidency. Didn't want to use water boarding - but, it was used. Wanted to close Guantanamo ( had he the US would have never killed Bin Laden).

    The military killed Osama Bin Laden. Not President Obama.

    Seal Team 6 gets the credit.

    Would you have blamed them had the mission failed?
