The Republicans had better play ball in Congress, or they will be looking for new jobs in two years.

If one lets the Bush tax cuts expire, then Bush is raising the taxes, not Obama.

Our president conducts a long-awaited press conference, and it’s as if Clint Eastwood’s empty chair presided over it.

So all you Obama voters want to raise taxes on the rich. Who do you think makes jobs and supports America? Big Bird?

Mitt Romney’s assertion that Obama’s gifts to voter blocs got him elected continues to insult the same voters Romney needed to get elected. And does Romney actually think all that money donated by the wealthy to his campaign was not in expectation of gifts to them from him?

If it is wrong for you to take money from people who earned it, to take their money by force for your own needs, then it is certainly just as wrong for you to demand that the government step forward and do this dirty work for you.

Destruction of our economy was made certain by the ill-informed, economically myopic electorate. The endless gloating of the unionists, lawyers and progressive ideologues will come back and bite them. In time the gloating will stop, and the inevitable unrest and rioting will be blamed on, as usual, something or someone else.

I believe that everyone who voted for and is so protective of President Obama should bear a direct responsibility for the deaths of our ambassador and the others in our consulate in Benghazi, because the president failed to order the necessary help to protect their lives.

If U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice knew nothing about Benghazi, what the heck was she doing out on all of the Sunday television shows acting as if she did?

For you tea party Republicans who still seem to be in denial, here’s why Obama won: He won the popular vote, and he won the Electoral College by a landslide. Stop whining and get over it.

My grandpa always says, “If you didn’t vote, you can’t complain.” So all of the people who spend all their time and money at bars and casinos, or wait 12 hours for a store to open on Black Friday, but didn’t take time to vote should keep their mouths shut.

What happened to saying “Happy Thanksgiving” and “Merry Christmas”? I am tired of hearing “Happy Holidays.”

Thanks to the lady in Kohl’s who shared her coupon with the people in line behind her.
