    It's been hijacked. We need to send the SWAT team in to take out the terrorists.

    Hello? What part of the constitution says that the Congress has absolutely no right to choose what gets funded?

    I can't wait to read your answer. :eusa_angel:

    If you were really interested in presenting the board with this information in an effort to be more "fair" than the "cherry pickers" you might have been better served by posting the question asked and the actual breakdown from the PDF instead of your personal amalgamation of the data.

    For example:

    Sure, why not. They're taking out everything else these days.

    I really do hope you all can get your party back. David Brooks is waiting to rejoin.

    I won't wait. I'll give you the answer that you should know already.

    The Congress have every right to fund programs and defund programs. Whether you like it or not. Whether that old prick in the Senate evil Harry Reid likes it or not.

    It's in that little old thing called the Constitution

    Article 1, Section 8

    It's not my fucking thread. The PDF is out there. I'm under no obligation to present the board with anything.

    It's not my OP.

    I don't need to be better served. My point was strictly to show how media can cherry pick its headline and parts of a poll and omit other parts.

    I proved my point. It's not my job to go thru the whole PDF and explain it.

    Given that the Democrats received more than 50% of the popular vote in the 2012 elections, doesn't it make sense that 43% of any random group polled would be Democrats or those who lean towards the Democratic Party? Or do you think that you'd get a more accurate poll by only interviewing those who self-identify as Republicans.

    Sometimes it seems to me that the conservatives on this board think that conservatives form the majority of voters in the US when in fact more people identify themselves as Democrats or independents than they do Republicans or conservatives. And those who admit to being Republicans tend to be older, white and married. That's the demographic which voted Republican in the last election.

    It appears there are many here who think that only conservatives' opinions matter and that liberals should not be polled.

    If finishing the Obama admin meltdown is a bad thing - then yes...

    I would prefer to see Obama finally learn from his marred Presidency and listen to the American people tho.

    Shocking - another liberal on USMB pretending to be a conservative because he thinks it will give him credibility with actual conservatives.

    Trust me junior, you annoy us real conservatives a hell of a lot more than we will ever annoy you.
