Come on down to Florida to see how much more damage the Rs could do if they were in power. This Tea Party fuckwad Rick Scott is not even trying to hide how pro corporation, anti-normal person he is.

If he could have his way 100%, there would be 0% taxes for corporations and those making more than $150k would just be paid by the government from taxes collected from those making less than $50k. Infrastructure improvements would be defunded. Public education would go away. All state employees would be fired and all governement regulation would be removed, except the regulations that help his cronies get richer.

It is really sickening to see the end game of the elected tea partiers. It is unabashed class warfare, and they are, so far, being quite successful at getting the very people they have declared war on to support them.

At least he can play golf near DC. Clearing brush took GWB all the way out to Texas for weeks at a time.

Seriously though, come up with a better argument than "ZOMG HE'S PLAYING GOLF!!!!!111!!!1" He's the President of the United States, and you know what, when you have a high stress job like that, you might need to unwind from time to time, lest you go batshit crazy.

I didn't vote for him. He's done enough stupid shit while in office that I will not vote for him next time. Yet, at the same time, I know that whatever dumbass corporate stooge the Republicans trot out for their mouth breathing base to vote for will not be worthy of my vote either. Democrat or Republican, they're all corrupt.. Unless they aren't corrupt, in which case they will be corrupt before they get done.

In the end, no matter who you vote for, we all lose...

Or maybe it's the fact that I don't actually know anyone that has a device in their home that accepts component inputs...

My brand new Samsung UN55B8000 (Check it, it's their top of the line LED set) has one component input.

My LG 47LH55 (bought in June) has two component inputs..

Heck, it even has one composite input.

Something tells me you're wrong.

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
