Barack Obama, our next President

What could Obama possibly be hiding?
Prob. that he was too busy smoking weed to get decent grades and was financed as a foreign exchange student. But the left doesn't care. He could have committed rape and they would still deny or adore their leader.

On health care, for instance, Obama passed a Heritage Foundation-inspired bailout of the private health insurance industry, all while undermining other more-progressive proposals.

On foreign policy, Obama escalated old wars and initiated new ones... started a new war in Libya and Yemen. AND.. did not close Gitmo...
-
On civil liberties, Obama not only continued the Patriot Act and indefinite detention of terrorism suspects but Obama also claimed the right to assassinate American citizens without charge...
-
On financial issues, Obama fought off every serious proposal to re-regulate banks following the mortgage collapse, causing economic meltdown and chaos; Obama preserved ongoing banks, Bank of America, mortgage Freddie Mac and AIG bailouts; and Obama resisted pressure to prosecute Mortgage and Wall Street thieves such as Goldman Sachs former CEO Jon Corzine (D-NJ) and MFg (motherfuckingglobal)...

And every week brings a new story of a Welfare Greens Job company declaring bankruptcy, Obama the Corporatist-in-Chief increasing Americas carbon footprint by sending huge piles of wasted taxpayers money up in smoke...

When there's no penalty for failure.. You get more failure from Obama...
-
On fiscal matters, after Obama extending the Bush tax cuts at a time of massive deficits, Obama took 500 billion away from Medicare and put it in ObamaKare and has used the debt ceiling negotiations to set the stage for potentially massive cuts to Social Security and Medicare -- cuts that would be far bigger than any of Obama's proposed revenue increases by a trigger...

Ryan budget unpopular with who? Communists? Welfare cheats? fluking sluts?
America cheers for serious R-R who will fix the economy.
Yesterday, the Club for Growth released a statement saying that the Ryan budget was “on balance, a disappointment to fiscal conservatives.” We applauded the strong pro-growth reforms in the bill, but the reasons for our opposition were twofold:

First, the budget doesn’t balance within 10 years, or for that matter, even 20 years. Our country is currently enduring unsustainable trillion-dollar deficits. We cannot wait until 2040 — the year the Ryan budget balances (page 84)— in order to arrest our ever-growing national debt.

Second, we are opposed to how the budget dismantles the annual sequestration spending cuts enacted into law by last year’s Budget Control Act (also known as the debt-limit deal). As you may recall, the debt deal established annual discretionary spending caps for the next ten years. But the debt deal also required additional cuts (both discretionary and mandatory) because the supercommittee failed. Therefore, for the upcoming year, the real number that needs to be achieved, beyond the spending cap, is $110 billion in cuts in total spending authority. But Ryan’s budget achieves less than that:$19 billion in discretionary cuts and $53 billion in cuts to mandatory authority, of which only $18 billion would be included in budget reconciliation, a fast-track process requiring committees to actually pass implementing legislation.

House leaders know that they are $39 billion short — and thus, are breaking the terms of the BCA — but they overcompensate for this by promising deeper spending cuts in the out years.

In other words, they are kicking the can down the road ... again. Congress made a solemn promise last year that they would abide by the spending restraints in the Budget Control Act. But already, House Republican leaders are breaking that promise. This is now more than a fiscal problem. It’s a credibility issue. Like we said in our original press release,“It is hard to have confidence that our long-term fiscal challenges will be met responsibly when the same Congress that passed the Budget Control Act wants to ignore it less than one year later.”

By breaking the sequester, House Republicans aren’t just spending an extra $39 billion — they are undoing the entire $1.2 trillion sequestration part of the deal. We know Democrats will be more than happy to go along ... and that will be the worst possible result.

Republicans need to uphold the promise they made last year and go even further. As a country, we can no longer afford to kick the can. We must act, and we must act now.

Ryan is a smarmy looking and sounding little creep along the lines of Ralph Reed, yuk-pffft-puke. The kind of mutt even a mother can't love.

Trickle Down shit???

In order for Trickle Down to work the Democrat voting Slackers have to get off their couches and reach up to grab their share of prosperity. This reaching up is accomplished by things like getting a job, giving up drugs, and trying out some personal hygiene.

Under the current "Wealth Redistribution" these same slackers are allowed to remain lolling on their couches while the Obama Administration rewards them with just enough freebees to maintain the slothlike subsistence.

Good for George except they never paid for it adding billions to the debt every year & growing.

Fix medicare through a voucher like program & save money by making retiring seniors pay more.

The Ryan Plan on Medicare does nothing for ten years & then dribbles in & is not even half way there for 25 years down the road.

Obama may run a new ad claiming the credit for setting the tone for the lack of emotional attachment to America by being so relentlessly Divisive. Obama's negative impact has been undeniable. The Olympic Ad should run during the DNC Convention when it will get the most mileage from the "like minded".

NORFOLK, Va.--Mitt Romney announced Saturday he's selected Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate. The announcement came just after 7am ET via Mitt's VP, a mobile application launched by the campaign earlier this month.

According to a statement the campaign released late Friday, the presumptive Republican nominee will appear with his running mate at an 8:45am rally here on the USS Wisconsin--the first stop of his four-day bus tour of key battleground states. The campaign offered no further details, and aides traveling with Ronney declined to comment.

Pandering to the far right/tea baggers, interesting move.

Not a 'safe' pick I will give Romney credit for that.

Ryan is supposed to do that. Are conservatives supposed to do this?

Is the Ryan Budget a Joke?

It’s funny to watch how every single elected Republican and every candidate for Congress talks incessantly about profligate spending and the need to balance the budget. Yet, most of these guys support the bills that will ensure the budget is never balanced. Why don’t they just join the Democrats next year and forget about proposing a budget?
