Here they are!

You know, reading those clips as I was typing them, it dawned on me that had anyone made the glib remark to me as he made in the first one -about working three jobs to support myself and my kids -back when I was almost always working two jobs, it would have been all I could do then to keep from hauling of and decking that person. And then to tell them if it's so great, why don't you try it - especially at these low-level wages!

Just my opinion there, folks.

That particular quote proves that he doesn't get it. He's not even in the same room as the basic discussion.

I wonder at the clever positioning of that quote on Feb 3 followed by the one about making the pie higher on Feb 5.

What a complete ass...that first statement really ticks me off. I am glad I have never voted for this idiot!!!

Travis put it so well - he's not even in the same room as the discussion.

I am a single Mom, since my son was 3. And I worked 3 jobs for many many years. Even when I was lucky enough to get 1 good paying job it was overtime, overtime, overtime. What a moron he is. I so look forward to the day he slinks off to Saudi Arabia to count all the blood money he's socking away there.

I still have dreams of impeaching him after the fact. that's the legacy he deserves.

Wow - I got serious and angry. He makes my blood boil.

I'm voting for Barack tomorrow, that should make me feel hopeful again.

I wonder if raising the pie is anything like raising the roof....
