Will he be able to use binLaden's death to get re-elected or will the economy bring him down by fall?

Let's do what Good Ol'Passer wants and have a nuclear war with Iran, the sooner the better! Then he can rant further about who knows what because half of his posts are so full of clever invective that they make no sense and can't be understood.

Why use nuclear, Passer? Surely we have non-nuclear alternatives, as you should be well aware.

"...he should do the OPPOSITE of whatever he thought about doing."

Then why bother with sanctions at all and ANY possible deal with 6 other nations against Iran???

Let's do what the GOP wants and have a nuclear war with Iran, the sooner the better! Since the half-life of the radiation of any bombs dropped might be centuries and with Iran being so close to Israel, with GOP approval Israel may get over their nuclear winter by the next century in time for a positive election cycle for the GOP, which is, after all, their highest priority.

"Cotton isn't backing down. In his maiden speech in the Senate, Cotton reiterated his view that the deal being discussed would pave Iran's path to a nuclear bomb.

"Iran is an outlaw regime. ... Unsurprising, Iran is only growing bolder and more aggressive as America retreats from the Middle East," Cotton said, adding that Iranian leaders continue to call for Israel's elimination and that Iran is meddling in other nations, including Syria and Iraq.

The U.S. official in Lausanne, who wasn't authorized to speak publicly on the matter and briefed reporters only on condition of anonymity, said that in the end, the talks and a potential agreement depend on Iran showing the world that its nuclear program is exclusively peaceful."

Do you REALLY think Iran isn't using their nuclear capability to make weapons? Where are the verification teams in every facility they have?

Maybe the President should actually follow the wishes of Congress, which has the sole authority to ratify treaties instead of using his pen and phone. Considering how well Obama's OTHER foreign relations moves have worked out, he should do the OPPOSITE of whatever he thought about doing.

Name a deal with Iran that they've honored.

"No word on Hillary's ratings; we're still waiting for the e-mail."

Or waiting for the response back from Iran to the Cotton letter about the intensity of the GOP hatred for our Commander in Chief?

Maybe Iran's letter back is taking a lot of time because they are considering making a deal with the GOP to undermine our government which is a common interest they have with the GOP Cotton Signers.

Maybe Iran has a polyester factory and the GOP and Iran can make a killing making a Cotton/polyester shirt in which the GOP can hide the lack of patriotism running down their backs?

"The President gets credit when things go well and blame when they don't, whether he had anything to do with it or not."

That is very true. Many on the Right blamed Obama for high gas prices as did many on the Left blamed Bush (similarly for high gas prices)for something that the president doesn't really have much direct control over. It comes with Incumbency. Now let's see how the Tea Party holds or does not hold their mouth when the Republicans attempt to do something very unfamiliar to them: ie govern!

Pretty funny that gas price relief after 4 long years of pain improves Obamas job approval.

What job did this? his foreign policy against Israel and Pro Iran?

None of the above -- he is a quit-and-stay President

"Wonder what the percentage would be if the illiterates, freeloaders, welfare recipients, gays, white apologists and the liberal media were backed out..."

ie Everyone who is not a member of your Tea Party? 0%

because everyone who doesn't believe like you is what you consider your enemy. From your description, the members who are not "illiterates, freeloaders, welfare recipients, gays, white apologists and the liberal media" are also not part of your Aryan Brotherhood and your clan (ie The Tea Party).

Dec 26-29 Poll

Approve 46%

Disapprove 49%

Significant recent change probably due to the pending GOP seating of SELF con-fessed, Con-victed Tea Party CON (both Con meanings, Conservative & Convict) Michael Grimm.

It will be a GRIMM Year for the Tea Party and his (their) "American" Values!

Maybe he'll be made Chairman of the Judiciary Committee so he can throw any reporters who ask troubling questions off the House Balcony???

and threaten to "break them like little boys" who don't drink Tea?

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."

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

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.

. 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.
