1. Chicken

So President Obama believes the U.S. economy is still in the game-playing stage does he?

These are also the same people who lost in November. No one believed the Democrats took the problems that face our nation seriously–including jobs and the economy–so they lost.Republicans seem hesitant to take the President on–he’s still popular enough and he has the bully pulpit and he’s already shown a willingness to cynically invoke the trauma to women, children and the elderly.Republicans should feel confident and go boldly.Please click here for the rest of the post.
