I can't believe how this author slips and shows his racism, Most Obama haters hide it better, but this guy really had a Freudian slip. After stating that Obama's approval deficit among all voters is now at 8%, he explains that it's 27% among white voters. And then, he makes the following astonishing statement: "in other words, 27% more Americans think Obama is doing a bad job than a good job". Totally unbelievable that somebody that writes for this publication could think that non white voters are not American, I am thoroughly disgusted by the blatant racism shown by this article,..
Fascinating how this paper ignores the fact that Obama's deficits were caused mostly by legacies from Bush, who started with a balanced budget and proceeded to cut taxes as he plunged us into two wars (without collecting a single penny in additional revenue) and gave us Medicare part D, which, because it is not funded contributed much more to the deficit than the much maligned Obamacare, which to the chagrin of the Republican "deficit cutters" has quite a bit of revenue built into it.. I also find interesting the way it blames Obama for abandoning its offer of entitlement reform through changing the COLA formula, totally ignoring the facts that it was the Republicans, including this publication, who jumped all over him for "trying to balance the budget on the back of senior citizens", when he made the offer. Of course, this is no different than how the Republicans abandoned their true principles of fiscal responsibility and sat idly when Reagan decided that deficits don't matter and when GWB went on spending and tax cutting sprees, but found religion when Obama tried to avoid a recession.
Great!! Congratulations to MSNBC and particularly to the RNC and all the others that forced that shameful network to do what is right and should have done on its own. I just wonder when if we are ever going to see an apology from Fox News for their constant messages of hate towards anybody that smells liberal, or any pressure from the same ones that pressured MSNBC.

What to Cut From America's Budget

This article hits the nail on the head. This is why we have made so little progress in cutting the deficit. Most of those (especially politicians, tea partiers included) that scream for budget cuts, don't want to cut any in the places where it would make a significant difference.

Ann is too smart to miss a point as she seems to have done. She is obviously ignoring it. When the Republicans talk about not punishing the children, they are talking about not deporting them to a country they know nothing about and whose language they may not even speak. The issue of forgiving the parents is separated from that argument.
