I was just wondering why "monsters" was an adjective you would choose to describe Tea Partiers. Seriously, did something personal happen to you?

I feel that way about PETA for good reason. One of them assaulted my family outside a circus, not realizing that the large, overprotective guy several steps behind my wife and two small kids was with them. I bounced his head off the windows of the arena until he peed himself then threw him down the street. Last I saw him, he was running away VERY quickly, and the cop standing at the corner who saw what happened nodded at me and very deliberately turned to watch traffic.

"On a similar note, more than 25% (about 29% according to Angus Reid Public Opinion poll) of Americans believe in the Loch Ness Monster."

"Passer cannot even read a poll correctly." SE3.5 As a lawyer but more than that, as a Conservative, you seemingly were taught to deny facts. I quoted 29% of Americans believe in the Loch Ness Monster according to the Angus Poll:

It seems that Fox has taught you their Poll tax ie to actually deny a fact and slander the person who gave the inconvenient fact and his factual statement to a Conservative point of skew.

My FACT was correct since you didn't like it you do the Tea Party slander and spout that I can't "read a poll correctly" because you disagree with the fact.

OK, when you read it, what IS the percentage that I got wrong:

29%?

15%?

0%?

or as usual Conservatives make up their own regardless of what any real source reads???

In the 21st Century, Conservatism's greatest enemy is unadulterated Truth and the sadest thing is that it didn't always used to be that way. The Tea Party spins truth faster than the Science they don't believe in says that the earth [in TP terms] allegedly spins on its axis.

Passer cannot even read a poll correctly.

I quote, "conservatism was associated with belief in monsters in Canada and Scotland, while liberalism was tied to monster belief in the U.S."

"Liberal Party voters in Canada were the least likely to believe in Bigfoot, Democrats in the U.S. were the most likely."

On a similar note, more than 25% (about 29% according to Angus Reid Public Opinion poll) of Americans believe in the Loch Ness Monster.

Proving that more people than one would expect like to believe in or identify positively with monsters!

"Teacher Tim's link to Passer's Dog Pound"

That wasn't merely a "dog 'pound'". That was a mad-dog "Ton".

But what AC-302 doesn't realize is that by the time he's finished he'll have eight full years experience of being a dogcatcher. Though he may have missed a few mutts, the Tea Party can be thanked for the experience.

And that probably accounts for the occasional uptick in his approval numbers. Yeah, we're stuck with one incredibly incompetent president, but the upside is that he single-handedly managed to kick a whole lot of his fellow Dumbocrats out of office.

Obama's job approval number six years in are about what Bush's were six years in. I went to a presentation by my investment advisor last Tuesday where they always discuss the political climate. Their main premise is that the markets love gridlock!

OF COURSE NOT!

Then he would be directly supervising the Tea Party and have more authority over them than ever!


** OTOH he might be able to trim at least a local pack of mad dogs! **

THAT, would be a start.

Yet he keeps saying things like, "They vote with me." It's like he can't stand being unpopular, to the point that he doesn't care that he's undermining Dems midterm chances in swing states.

. Pres. Obama's job approval rating sags when compared to NOTHING... but as soon as an EvilBushie opponent is named, his approvals will SOAR in comparison... just how much will depend on who is named...

. And Pres. Obama's Approval Rating will transfer to some extent onto the next Democrat candidate for president... also depending on who is chosen...

Threw Reuters in there because I haven't seen a -19 point spread since the FOX poll of 9/7-9/9.

Rasmussen has it being only a -6 spread.

Not much movement, regardless of what he does. It appears from other polls that Obama's numbers are slipping in "deep blue" states where Democrats are getting discouraged at his leadership. Dem pols would rather have Michele Obama serve school lunches at their events than be seen with the President.

Passerand Maryanne,
After six years of Obama, it's getting pretty desperate to keep blaming either Bush or Clinton. It's like saying the current President is totally ineffective and without any responsibility. Everyone KNOWS that is not the case, but it certainly does raise questions about his effectiveness or lack thereof.

Funny how everyone seems to be hawkish on Syria now. Don't we ever do LONG-RANGE intelligence anymore? It would appear that our foreign policy consists of reacting to whatever other countries do to us and our allies, rather than anything constructively proactive.

Curious about the Russian natural gas dustup with Poland. Do we have anything on that?

Cheney and his sidekick, Bush tried for years to get Bin Laden with 'decisive' words like "Mission Accomplished". What part of his dead body is still elusive to you? Perhaps the GOP will sue Obama or impeach him for exceeding his authority in killing Bin Laden if they take over the Senate and totally lose all Cruz Control???

The only hurtful part is Obama's constant promises and lack of follow-through. I would certainly feel betrayed by him if I were here illegally and could be deported at any time.

Republicans, and everyone else, learned the hard way when Reagan granted amnesty on the understanding that the border would be secured as part of the deal. When that didn't happen, somewhere between eleven and twenty million MORE came to America illegally and had children here. Republicans and most sane people realize that granting amnesty again would have the same result UNLESS THE BORDERS ARE SECURED and immigration laws are enforced. I and most Republicans would agree to a path to citizenship if the border was secure, but like the old adage "Fool me once..." it won't happen without guarantees that rescind the path to citizenship if the border is not secured. No "shame on me" for requiring those guarantees.

"Will delaying Immigration Reform help or hurt his and Dems' numbers?"

Hurtful question. The truth is, it will hurt his numbers but help some key Democrats.

The House Republicans have already lost all support they could possibly lose already because most thoughtful Americans know that they have put their own interests ahead of the country's as opposed to the Senate Republicans.

It's 93%, not 98%.

Fifty nine percent of whites votes for Romney. They voted for him because of his skin color, right?

Seventy one percent of Hispanics and 73% of Asians voted for Obama. They voted for him because of his skin color, right?

"Thirdly, since 98% of blacks voted for Obama, doesn't that make them racist. They voted for him because of the color of his skin, right?"

You don't seem to understand racism,tt. The first Democrat or Republican candidate who is Jewish will probably have over 95% of the Jewish vote. THAT DOES NOT MAKE THEM RACISTS! If a Christian believed that Jews used Christian blood as part of their Jewish ritual, THAT would make the "Christian" racist.

The Right has a lot of trouble understanding the difference between the two examples above, but to over simplify it, the former was something positive. Jews (or Blacks, or anyone for that matter) tend to be overly proud at the chance to vote for someone of their heritage if, in the past, they were discriminated against in the past (especially if they were brought to this country in bondage -- which did not violate your bible, in fact, quite the contrary, it was Biblical to have slaves).

So voting for Obama by Blacks is not "racism" (except to the uninformed and the Tea Party, but I repeat myself...). Having police of YOUR (and my) race, shoot blacks when they probably wouldn't have shot a white in the same situation IS!

In another one hundred years you will understand that. The younger generation, already does!
