#1 It's good to face reality, Obama takes, when you realize it, there's a new Republican.
So, does reality hurt, Yup?
Does it hurt Obams, Nope?
That's reality, sooo what're you gonna do?
Realize Obama LIES (Gasp), well we told you, and you wouldn't listen, Suck it up.
NOW (Maybe) you'll listen, we in the South have great experience with (Call him what you want, it's still the same) and we told you.

#3 The amusing thing about our current predicament is that the one thing that would revive the GOP is a series of hefty tax hikes. All the liberals who whine about the rich not paying their fair share will end up with sticker shock once they find out that they are "rich" and the "fair share" they were insisting upon somebody else paying is a significant chunk of what they thought was hard-earned cash that belonged to them. Bottom line is that things have to get worse before they get better. Remember the line about people being liberal until they get mugged? That's what liberals need - a good mugging by the IRS.

#4 ZF: It wouldn't take a whole lot of work for the GOP to come up with something that a) Zero would have a lot of problems arguing against, and b) would hit the NE Corridor and CA disproportionately hard. That the GOP hasn't done this is testament to either their stupidity or their lack of imagination. Or maybe their duplicity. Certainly the taxation-via-inflation that Zero really wants to engage in after his token 'soak the rich' rhetoric will be much more damaging to the poor than the rich, unless the rich have been setting up Scrooge-McDuck style swimming pools for their money.

#5 "Obama supporters shocked, angry at new tax increases"
Serves ya' right, you MORONS.
Look on the bright side - Bambi said he'd raise taxes only on the rich. Your taxes went up, therefore you're rich! :-D

#6 You want big government, you'll pay for it. One way (taxes) or another (inflation).

#10 Do they take SS out of welfare checks? I've never been on welfare, so I have no idea.

Plenty of Obama supporters work. The majority of able-bodied blacks and Hispanics work. They just like getting the racial/ethnic preferences that give them a leg up in college admissions and recruiting. Checking the black/Hispanic box is a lot like being born a Bush, but even better, because even a Bush needs personal connections - people who know other people, whereas any black/Hispanic automatically "knows" people in every little nook of these United States because of the disparate impact court judgments that require colleges and other institutions to favor blacks/Hispanics in academic admissions and hiring.

#12 I had a liberal friend that was a huge supporter of Obamacare. Later, she was bemoaning the fact that her premiums went up by $60 a month. I mentioned that she needed to support those that Obamacare expanded to support. She was working and had a little more to spread around.
Needless to say she wasn't amused and doesn't talk to me any more.

Clearly, these don't think so.

#17 Did any of the complainers say they voted for the wrong guy? Wished for Mitt? That would be to suggest they made a mistake in voting for 0.
It's still somebody else's fault, and it always will be.

#18 Your taxes went up because ... taxes were too low during the Bush years.
I'm sure all the readers understood that to mean their taxes went up because Bush didn't tax the rich enough. It never occured to them that Bush cut their taxes, too.
Besides which, isn't this the re-instatement of somthing 0 temporarily cut as part of the "Stimulus"?

#19 I'm disabled (Real, Stroke,) and Over 65 so I'm waiting untl the 22nd of this month to see WHAT I get.
We shall see, I'm hardly rich, but I do have some cash in the bank, but I don't mind paying my share, as long as others pay too.
Now IF the others DON'T pay, hell no.

#20 Paycheck, Obama voter? Guess there must be some but i had assumed the bulk came from the idle rich and the leach classes. These are probably Loyal Union guys realizing they were used.

#23 "Your taxes went up because the leaders need to dig us out of this criminal deficit hole we are in which has been caused because taxes were too low during the Bush years"
The "deficit hole" is because GWB and Congress spent too much money.
One of the great lamentations of the Left about the days following 9/11 is that the President "didn't do enough to rally the nation", meaning that he didn't propose more taxes and fees to pay for 'homeland security'. Whether or not he should have, Washington still went on a spending spree. I don't recall the Left being too upset about it (except for miltary spending).

#24 I'd say to these Obama voters who are having trouble with this, "You made your bed, now lay in it, STFU and quit whining. Better yet, take it up with the guy you voted for."

Sadly, this is becoming more and more common as we try to talk sense to family and friends. I believe lotp has commented on it at length.
Class warfare *sounds* like big fun - hey, let's tax the rich guys 'cause they've certainly got more money than me! But as pointed out elsewhere, they don't have enough money and arithmetic always wins in the end. Expect a lot of tears and whining as Obama voters slowly figure out who the rubes actually are.
