its just like "government takeover of health care" the guy was on video saying "just keep putting it out there, in the end they will believe it" factcheckers called it the biggest lie of 2010 and for this he was rewarded with a full time job at FOX, his name is Frank Luntz.

Jowl, no answers?? Isn't that what you do? ask a question and then demand an answer if you don't get it quick enough? Which program or policy did the President initiate that added 4.7 trillion dollars?? Hint hint....go back to the Bush years for your answer, its called spend, spend and spend somemore all the while decreasing your revenue with tax cuts. You have to hand it to the radical right, they know you won't check the facts so they have FOX put it out and you guys just gobble it up LOL

"Debt clock just ticked past 17 TRILLION. Obama has added more to the national debt in the past 5 years than all the past Presidents combined. " see this is all over the right wing blogs right now and yes it started on FOX. It is false and here is why. The debt has risen yes, true statement but how much was added by the President or should we say congress?

the right knows these things but continues to just put it out there for you ninnys anyway knowing you won't question it. They realize that in the end you are racists and will latch on to anything to criticize our first duly elected black president. "oh there he goes again with the race card" my answer to that is YEP

most of that debt increase wasn't a result of Obama's policies, but of those he inherited.

But ask yourself: Which of Obama’s policies added $4.7 trillion to the debt? The stimulus? That was just a bit more than $800 billion. TARP? That passed under George W. Bush, and most of it has been repaid.

When Obama took office, the national debt was about $10.5 trillion. Today, it’s about $15.2 trillion. Simple subtraction gets you the answer preferred by most of Obama’s opponents: $4.7 trillion.

"he was a Senator that raising the debt ceiling was unpatriotic" if and when we ever get another republican president this topic will cease to be an issue. Please investigate how many times the debt limit was raised under the god Reagan. Its a FOX talking point..." oh there he goes with FOX again" absolutely Jowl. I am sure you aren't even aware of the fact that ALL republican talking points start on FOX Jazeera. They are then taken to the senate floor and out to the media. Shameful that a supposed "news" organization can dictate policy to the GOP

"The radical left socialist robots think that someone who stands for what they believe,doesn't tow the party line,and represents those that sent he or she to DC is a terrorist. Pretty sad I say! " exactly what you do Jowl. President Obama is representing the people that elected him president, he is doing exactly what those people who voted him in want. Affordable health care, JObs, regulation the the crazies on WAll street, reduce the tax breaks for big oil.

Debt clock just ticked past 17 TRILLION. Obama has added more to the national debt in the past 5 years than all the past Presidents combined. Something to be really proud of! That puts a burden of well over 100 THOUSAND dollars on every TAXPAYER. Heck of a legacy to pass on to our kids right? That is the ultimate terrorist act I think!! It's OK though,Judeye says the deficit is going down!

I say we take back our country from the socialist dictator who thinks he can just change laws without going through the constitutional process! The dictator that allowed the employer mandate to be postponed a year,the dictator who bought votes by telling ICE not uphold a portion of the immigration law,the dictator that said when he was a Senator that raising the debt ceiling was unpatriotic,the dictator that buys votes by using redistribution of wealth! Want more robot?? Now call your handler and ask how you can say these are all lies OK?

From CNBC "Obamacare has a 99.6 percent rating—and not in a good way. A paltry 36,000 people managed to enroll in the federal online health-insurance marketplace in its first, software-glitch-ridden week of operation, a grim new analysis found Wednesday. That's "far fewer than one percent of all visitors to HealthCare.gov" for the week ended Oct. 5, wrote Matt Pace, managing director of research firm Millward Brown Digital, on a blog post entitled "A Bleak First Week." Yes sure does seem as if all of America is breaking down doors to get this abortion of non-healthcare. Seems not everyone likes to volunteer to pay a new tax after all.

Robert, you need to go back to the Daily KOS and get some more talking points. Do you really have a clue on what's gong on? Has the government really shut down? Your boys in the senate are what's the problem but hey, let's blame Republicans.

Robert, let's see, who's been president since 2008. Oh yea, the guy that gets blamed for nothing and has done nothing but increase the debt over 6 trillion dollars. But, it's 2013 and we'll still blame the guy who left office back in January, 2009.

Still no answer from either Judeye or Marcia as to how the President is able to change a law outside the framework of the constitution. Not surprising that the Robot has chimed in with something not even close to being relevant.Is that the best you can do Judeye & Marcia?
