The Bush tax cuts are so evil, that Obama extended them and now Bill Clinton says we should extend them.

Further proof that the Democratic party is a JOKE!

We need a new Liberal party in the U.S.....Obama is NOT a liberal and all of this is a pure mockery to the ideals of what the democratic party USED to be.

Bill Clinton is wrong. We're not in a recession, technically haven't been for a while.

I enjoy when the republicans paint him as a socialists. Yeah the democratic party is faceless with no direction right now and it worries me.

Universal healthcare: Check
Increase size and scope of government: Check
Pro gay marriage: Check
Pro choice: Check
Extend unemployment benefits to 2 years: Check
Former member of socialist party: Check
Appoint liberal federal and SCOTUS justices: Check

What has he done that's not liberal?

Bill Clinton is one of the few Democrats who realize tax cuts is a better fiscal policy and is willing to admit it. Bravo to Slick Willie.

HA!

You must be joking right?

Universal Health Care?......are you kidding me, do you even know what REAL universal health care is.....trust me it's NOT ObamaCare, not even close!

He's pro gay marriage and pro choice.....who cares?

He has no plans to make gay marriage legal like a REAL liberal would like to.

Redistribution of wealth?.....dude STOP watching so much FAUX news, please explain where in the U.S is this happening!!!

Extended unemployment?......a populous position, nothing more.

Former member of socialist party?......I'm not even going to address this, I'm only interested in serious discussion not nonsense sensationalism.


What has he done that's not liberal?.....Gee, I don't know, how about the extension of almost EVERY Bush policy including the Patriot Act, and the extension of the Bush tax cuts.

Guantanamo Bay is still open...

Continuous warmongering...

He signed the NDAA...

Not pursuing a REAL regulation of wall street, or for that matter punishing those that caused the recession....


Obama is Right Center at best....it's a joke to call him a liberal.

I said that Obama is not a socialists, he is still a liberal.

Only liberals are pro gay and pro choice? Why do people care about these things? He supports gay marriage and women choosing to have a baby or not. So what? The president has no say in that, that is a state decision.

If insurance paid for what they are suppose to pay for I would not support universal healthcare. My insurance hasn't paid one cent for any claim I have made. EVER! Don't want to affect the profits now do I? Between my self and my employer healthcare gets $282 a week. Honestly, I don't know if universal health care is a good thing or a bad thing.

The distribution of wealth has gone too far, making money doesn't translate into hard work.
Walton airs - $18 billion each
Eminem - $650 million
50 cent - $400 million
Lil Wayne - $115 million
Cast of Jersey Shore - $30 million

Yeah, they work so much harder that me.

Now I don't hate the rich, I really don't. There are people out there who do work hard for thier money and people that will take advantage of social welfare, but again hard work doesn't translate into making money most of the time.

I still believe that the most important job of the president is balance of power between government and big business. One side wants too much government and the other wants to let the big businesses run everything and they're both wrong.

if someone was willing to give you that type of money i am sure you would not turn it down.

do i think these and others are overpaid? sure, but that is not my fault nor theirs, why should their money be taken and given to others?

I would give money to charitable organizations, I all ready do, but less that $1,000 a year. I would love to give more. What do you need that much money for? Toys and multiple houses? I have an actual job that requires actual labor. Think about 50 cent being worth $400 million, I mean really think about that. Now does the government have the right to take that money from you just because you have more of it, I just don't know. Again, if you make $400 million and the government takes half that is still $200 million, more than enough to last. Personally, I would love both raising taxes and cutting spending. I mean, does money have to be the most important thing?

My issue isn't hating the rich just because I am envious, but because most people are rich through inheritance and just pailn luck, not actual hard work. I make decent money for being 25, but pending a crazy fluke I will never be rich, and I am fine with that. People are too greddy, wish they weren't :(

we nor the goverment have the right to take away any money from anyone

you have an issue with 50 cent but not with the people on entitlements?

coveting never gets you anywhere

yes the military should be on the top of the list, they employ over 1.5 million people, we can't afford another 1/2 million or so on unemployment, there are no jobs for these people

I was thinking about responding, then I read this...and I realized you are either just playing a big joke on SCF or you're somehow serious and there's no use in even trying to explain. I can't help it, I have to start a new thread on this one...
