it's about time Obama realized the need to do this

Obama bypasses Senate to name new envoys

another sign of a slowly improving economy

Unemployment benefit applications drop sharply
Let's see how badly the repugs screw up this recovery...

obviously, it will happen - it's just a matter of time

As President Obama ‘Wrestles’ With The Issue, Vice President Biden Says Gay Marriage Is Inevitable
(Think Progress)
As with other issues based on bigotry, history will judge who lead the cause to end the prejudice and who went along with the status quo...

let's hope so

despite all of the legitimate complaints, Dems did get things done

111th Congress Was Most Productive Session Since ‘At Least’ The 1960s
(Think Progress)
Yes, a lot more should have happened and could have happened, but many good things did come of this Democratic majority.
Let's see how badly the repugs f'k it all up in the new year.

Of course, if everything that was accomplished during the "lame duck" session had happened before the election, the Dems would never have lost - which, of course, is why the repugs didn't let any of this happen then. But, if the Dems had really pushed, November would have been totally different.
(This same idea written about also on Daily Kos)

the "lame duck" session was anything but lame

repugs version of "bi-partisianship"

congrats to this overthrow of bigotry

Gays see repeal as a civil rights milestone
Yes, there is a good reason that they see it as this, since it obviously is...

Of course, there is still plenty of bigotry to overcome, unfortunately...

repugs hurting the military again

Senate blocks repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell'
Repugs and their bigotry hurting the country again...

sick motherfuckers

only in the repug world

Bachmann’s Tax Double Standard: Cuts For Middle Class Cost Money, Cuts For The Rich Do Not
(Think Progress)
Amazing that she can contradict herself literally from one sentence to the next and didn't get called on it - though of course, she was on Fox, so facts are optional there...

bigotry backfiring

repugs will never be satisfied no matter how much they are given, if it also means helping the needy

proving once again just how wimpy the prez and Dems are

Unhappy Democrats say tax bill likely to pass
It is so sad that Obama came into office with so much promise and has become such a disappointing president. Yes, he had a monumental task that would have daunted any human being, but it would be nice if he had fought for any of the principles he claimed to have.

gawd forbid any government obeys the Constitution!

Inhofe Boycotts Tulsa ‘Holiday’ Parade: It’s ‘A Shameful Attempt To Take Christ Out’ Of The Parade
(Think Progress)
Remember? No establishing of a state religion? Separation of church and state? Principles that this country was literally founded on?

why do the repugs get involved in art

Smithsonian Museum Removes An LGBT Art Exhibit After GOP Threatens To Defund It
(Think Progress)
...and why did the Smithsonian cave to these neanderthals?

cuz of course it doesn't help the economy if people spend money!

they are unashamed of their hatred of the underprivileged

this is what happens when you deal with loons

cheney and bush are really proud of destroying this country

repugs are truly heartless and only care about the wealthy (an endless saga)

what the hell has happened to McCain?

McCain calls study on gays in military flawed
Does he really feel this way now, or is he just continuing to pander so that he can get on TV all the time?
