#1 it's fair to wonder about Obama's legacy if he leaves office without more progress on jobs and a budget deal that tames the nation's debt.

Don't know about you, but---far as I'm concerned, as long as he leaves...

#2 "These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market. Their rates are rising in large part to help offset the higher costs of covering sicker, poorer people who have been shut out of the system for years."

Wasn't Sebelius a Insurance Rep?

#3 "I gave you four surplus budgets, all those jobs, declining poverty." According to Philip Rucker of the Washington Post, that is what former President Clinton told Virginia voters

There was no I, there was a Trunk Congress, one on the cusp of going full hog pork barrel, but still controlling the purse strings to deliver something that implied adults still ran the budget.

#4 "These middle-class consumers are staring at hefty increases on their insurance bills as the overhaul remakes the healthcare market..."

Personally, I hope the Dem Party has screwed itself for several centuries because of their shoving this unwanted abortion on us. However, I am pessimistic that this will happen as the number of those receiving government largesse without paying for it has increased under the Dems & Obozo. Big government Pubs might do slightly better but not by much.

#8 "Jerkface" from the land of the moose
Wasn't loon or ptarmigan or goose:
With piratical swagger
He squawked out, "Teabagger,
Teabagger!," took wing, and vamoosed.

#10 Sounds like a work of Teapot fiction...

Actually, if one looks at Ron Fournier's body of work, it's fairly balanced. Methinks what one is seeing is a supporter gradually becoming frustrated and disillusioned. I didn't vote for Mr. Obama either time, but it is disheartening watching the slow-train-wreck.

Of course actually determining if it is a "Teapot fiction" means perusing Mr. Fournier's work, even if it is just the headlines. Far easier to enjoy the mental m*sturbation in parroting talking points and engaging in primary-school debating tactics.

#11 "Sounds like", not "must be" or "is", I think jerky is a bit too soft to be a tru prog.

Damn fine stuff Zenobia. Damn fine.

#12 You know my son has one of those toy where if you press his hand he would say a phrase. I think he only had three or four phrases which he would repeat over and over and over as you press his hand.
That I think is two more than JerkF.
