Hey we voted for this as a country. We will have to stew in our situation until
we can get some responsible leadership in the White House and Senate.
patriotCedar Hills, UTThe only ones dancing in the streets are
the do-nothing bums who won't work and don't pay taxes (progressive
democrat's) but get free Obama money every month...for them the gravy train
keeps on roll'in at our expense.============= Correct me if I'm wrong - um er uh, (gasp!) "patriot", but aren't you one of those retired do-nothing citizens collecting
Social Security, not paying taxes, and getting free money every month -- at our
Yes; my consumer confidence tanked with an Obama win. I will spend the next few
months paying off everything as fast as I can because I do not believe that
Obama has any economic sense whatsoever.Paying off debt is a good idea
regardless.Attempts to shame, blame or vilify anyone who is not
trilled over an Obama victory, when it is clear that Obama and the Democrats
have no plan for the economy other than class warfare and increased government
dependency, merely reinforces my belief that the far left has no economic sense,
no common sense and they are just plain mean.
@JohnJacobJingleHeimerSchmidt:"Maybe if the Republicans did more than
try to pass hundreds of abortions bills..."What you're
saying is... join the nation's morals decline and you'll be just
fine."The rest of the country is moving on."True. Agreeing to dispatch (sometimes called abortion) the unborn by the
millions... destroying the institution of marriage by approval of myriads of
strange combinations, letting illegals flood into this country unchecked who
suck up our resources and American jobs."Let's figure out
how to pay for those Trillions of the two wars GW Bush started..."Can't start a war without Congressional say-so... And that included Aye
votes from Senate Democrats like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Carl Levin, Max
Baucus, John Kerry, Charles Schumer, John Edwards, Harry Reid, Joseph Lieberman,
etc.And did you forget Obama's $5 trillion increase in the
national debt, the largest in American history?
Down Under, you forgot the House of Representatives.
These forums need a "roll my eyes" button.
Cincinnatis, I too must be one of those do nothing bums, "patriot" (he
really needs to quit using that moniker, because nothing could be further from
the truth) sees. I sure am dancing in the street. But I pray quite a bit in
federal taxes. I dare say, I pay much more then "patriot". Lowonoil, I also know those people that hate President Obama, and receive
entitlements. And yeah, the people I know that support President Obama are very
successful people. Strange. But, yeah, I'm usually not a sore
winner, but the more I read the comments on these boards, and listen to some
conservatives, the more I'm laughing and dancing in the street. Republicans
keep saying this kinda stuff, they will never win an election again. And that
makes me happy. It blows my mind, the people that keep claiming Mitt
has great character. What he portrayed indicated no character, he showed himself
as a man with absolutely no core believe. And he did this again and again. The
man would do and say anything- anything, to get votes. Anyone that paid
attention knows this.
To my kids - become financialy wise: get out of debt, stay out of debt, save
and save extra by counting pennies as in negotiating for no tax added if item
paid off in allowed time etc, strict budgeting, adequate term life insurance for
a young family, train up kids to become responsible for life goals and choices,
discern between wants and needs, Pay off home before retirement. This advice
worked for us - perhaps it will for you too!
Excuse me I meant I "pay" quite a bit in federal taxes. Pray federal
taxes. Good heavens. wrz, you say, "Can't start a war
without Congressional say-so..."But then you say, "And did
you forget Obama's $5 trillion increase in the national debt. . . "Don't you know, Can't spend money "without Congressional
say-so..."-"when it is clear that Obama and the Democrats
have no plan for the economy other than class warfare and increased government
dependency"Well, counter, that might be true if you keep your
eyes, and ears, tightly shut, or listen solely to Glenn Beck, FOX News, or Rush
and Hannity. But for those if us that actually pay attention we know
that nothing could be further from the truth. Oh well.
re:Cincinnatusyou and your wife actually work - right?? Then you
aren't part of the do-nothing bums I was referring to. I have kids who are
married and going to school and guess what - they make so little they don't
pay income taxes either however they work HARD as I'm sure you and your
wife do. They also benefit from health care plans tailored for their
circumstances. The 47% that Mitt was talking about weren't just non-tax
payers but also NON WORKERS. It is the NON WORKERS I call bums and rightly so.
The growing democrat base of voters happens to consist of those who would rather
collect their "Obama check" as one NY City guy put it and then set on
their behind. This crowd don't think they should work because they get more
from their free-bee Obama check than they would working a night shift security
guard job. Great culture we are fostering here huh?? Sounds just like socialist
Europe - the ones burning cars in the streets demanding their "fair
share" of entitlements that don't exist because countries like Greece
"The 47% that Mitt was talking about weren't just non-tax payers but
also NON WORKERS. It is the NON WORKERS I call bums and rightly so. "So check this out, "patriot" (please) believes, no, he really
does, he believes that there 47% of the people in this country do not work. No,
really, I'm serious, that is really what he believes. HaHa, yeah I know.
What can I say, some people will believe anything.
No, Joey -- even God couldn't overcome the blatant gerrymandering by
Republicans in so many states. If He had been able to do that, the House would
be firmly in Democratic hands now.
@patriotSo, you think that the "growing democrat base of voters
happens to consist of those who would rather collect their 'Obama
check', do you? Let me give you a reality check with a list of states that
CONSISTENTLY falls above the national average in welfare and food stamp
participation rates: Mississippi, Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, Kentucky, West
Virginia, Georgia, South Carolina, and Arkansas. Now want to take a guess on how
many of those states were blue this last election? I'll help you out.....it
would be a big fat ZERO. In fact, almost all red states receive more in federal
money than they pay in federal taxes. You would be wise to flip off that Faux
News channel I'm sure you watch religiously.
The economy is lousy right now! It hasn't changed nor will it with Obama in
the White House. All you who support Obama are living a fantasy. You can feel
good that you stuck it to the GOP for all of their conservative views, but the
nation is weaker now. It's less free and will continue to follow down this
road.I'm not a conspirator or a doomsayer, but a realist. We
missed a golden opportunity to help the country get back on track economically
by voting in Romney. Instead we chose a White House who is bent on distribution
of wealth and punishing the rich, whether or not it does any good. He's
amassed 4 trillion in debt in his first term! We have a right to be incredibly
discouraged.Obama will not bring America back to prominence. This is
against his mandate. He, and his ilk, believe that America's colonialism is
evil and has resulted in much of the world's suffering. He will not
compromise, but will blame the Republicans. Falling off the fiscal cliff is a
necessary step in his world view. The reality is ugly...
Kind of funny when Utahns start hacking on Utahns. Essentially hacking on
themselves. Makes me chuckle, and I like a good chuckle. Apparently Schwa is
pouting and Esquire is telling himself to get over it. It's ok Uthans the
rest of the country is just a little behind us. I assure you the consumer
confidence will start going down in other parts of the country soon.
This helps explain why Alaska's share Campaign is seeing a drop in
contributions to 2/3 that of the prior year. Alaska leans heavy towards
republican/conservative. Whether it's for real or imagined reasons, we are
tightening our belts.
Is it really 'Utah consumer' sentiment or is that really code for
'mormon consumer' sentiment? What makes Utah so different then any
other state other then they share the same religion as Romney? This is just a
case of mormons being sore losers and just pouting. What a sad little culture.
Mitt lost by popular vote, get over it and support your Commander in Chief and
So, what's up with all these Utahns baggin on Utah? Take off if you hate
so much! Certainly won't be any worse for the rest of us who love it here.
And by the way DOUG10, Utah has the HIGHEST college grad per capita in the
Good to see all the Obama supporters on hear telling us that all is well.
Don't worry little children.Telling us to go spend our money, buy
stuff and don't worry about the past 4 years.I'll continue to
pay my taxes, spend carefully so democrats will be sure to blame me in 4 more
years that it's my fault for saving my money and not helping to boost
Obama's blind economic plan.Let's check back in 6-8 months and
see how many Obama-ites are still on here beating on their chests about how
great things are looking.Anyone wanna bet on the unemployment rate a year
from now?How about the true costs of Obamacare?Any takers?
jasonlivy..the economy is weaker now..weaker than when? The end of 2008, the
beginning of 2009, compared to whom the rest of the world. The answer is a
resounding NO. The economy is not weaker it is stronger. Obama is bent on the
redistribution of wealth..did he start, unemployment insurance or did he just
respond to Bushs massive financial collapse, did he start the stimulus programs
or did he just continue what Bush started? Pretend all you want that the world
economy didn't just about completely collapsed and that credit in America
wasn't completely frozen and needed thawing out but it doesn't change
the facts. The point isn't it was Bushs fault because that's not true
the point is Obama saved us from a catostrophic financial collapse and things
are better..much better..and yes Romney would have taken us back to collapse.
