    Obama stepped in q big pile of doodoo with the Catholics and small govt people. We then in such a rush to keep him there are wallowing in the mess with him. This subject is sucking the air out of the room. Their is so much difference in issues between Obama and the right their is no need to alienate independent voters while trying to stir the base.

    WE NEED TO GET BACK ON TRACK. STOP LETTING THE LEFT FRAME THE DEBATE.

    With the media acting as leading apologists. There isnt much that can be done.

    Christ the left leaning media didnt even report on fast and furious.

    Have you heard much outrage of NDAA.

    If the right doesnt have any balls tell them to STFU

    They are on the only subject they care about. Trying to turn this country into a kind of ignorant, right wing American Confederate Christian Taliban.

    I watched Paul Ryan on MTP this morning. He had several opportunities to frame the subject and correct the perception of what were arguing about. He failed. He managed to complicate it too much with his answers.

    I thought he was crystal clear. He wants to cut taxes on the wealthy because they "create jobs" and he wants to "broaden the tax base" which means move more of the burden to the middle class and poor. This is what the Right wing is fighting for.

    The question is, do USMB right wingers really want to pay more taxes so millionaires and billionaires can pay less?

    Obama is up in the polls. He stepped in nothing:

    Rasmussen, all from the last week.

    The major networks did:

    ABC News:

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2011/11/attorney-general-holder-admits-errors-in-atfs-fast-and-furious-operation/

    CBS News:
    Obama on "Fast and Furious" and immigration - CBS News Video

    CNN:

    Mexico's president to U.S.: 'No more weapons' - CNN.com

    What "left leaning" media didn't report on it?

    Yes the timing was all after the fact when America was demanding answers.

    If you wish to be an apologist. KISS MY ASS.

    I FOLLOWED THE STORIES AS THEY CAME OUT. When you went to the sites there was absolutely no mention, but thanks for apologizing like a party hack.
