So in 2016 when we are $22 Trillion in debt and unemployment is still over 7% are the Dems going to say we need 4 more years?

Will the Republicans still be running on tax cuts with spending increases, creationism, abortion, birth certificates and other nut job hilarity?

Then yes.

No, the tax cuts will be abolished and the monstrous $100 Billion it "MAY" actually bring in will leave quite a bit of egg on a lot of faces. Then who ya gonna blame?

It's like reading a reply from a right wing robo AI. You parsed tax cuts and grabbed something from the DB to paste in.

Since it's pretty fucken obvious who's gonna be in the presidents seat for 2012...

I was wondering who the "D's" will elect for 2016?

and are you happy that Obama got another 4 years?
If obama serves another 4 years.... there will not be another democrat in the white house for at least 3 election cycles after that.

And Hillary... she has screwed the pooch with her bumbling of the Libya situation. So even if Obama could find a magical money tree... hillary is done for.

I disagree. Assuming Obama gets re-elected and the Dems hold the Senate, there's a real chance he'll get to replace one of the conservative justices. That means no more voter ID, probably voting rights for felons, wholesale legalization of illegals, revamped election funding, probably an end to talk radio if not FoxNews as the proggies make no bones about their vision of a SCOTUS justice - handing down justice as they see it rather than strictly interpreting the law or the Constitution. Under that scenario, it's highly unlikely we'll see another Republican President until the GOP fractures and becomes a competing socialist party. Even if the Pubbies pull this one out, that's the eventual result. There is simply no sizable American voting block that wants what the GOP is pretending to offer fiscally; even the Tea Party wants their bennies, just cut the other guy's.

As far as Hilary, most voters still get their news from the alphabets. Libya can easily be blamed on Bush's wars.

Well since that will only be the case if Romney is elected, why would they want four more years of Romney?

I do wonder if the Repubs will be as willing to sacrifice the well-being of America to make the other party look bad when Obama can't get another term due to term limits. I mean they've already spent the last 3+ years doing everything they can to fuck the country, when Obama wins will they finally be willing to compromise?

Sorry to interrupt your little lefty circle jerk, but Obama will not be re-elected. I'll make sure to bump this thread in November to rub some more salt in your wounds. :biggrin:

It's likely that they will dig up FDR for another term. Why have all the imitators when you can have the real thing?

If I knew or cared who you are, I'd make note of this post to laugh at you on election night.
