Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

The centerpiece of the Paul Ryan plan, which will likely be adopted by a would-be Romney administration, is as follows....
For everyone younger than 54, the Medicare system as we know it will be replaced by vouchers. Retirees will pick their favorite private health insurance plan and the government will pay the private insurer for the premiums and other costs. There aren’t any mechanisms to control costs, there aren’t any caps on out-of-pocket expenses, and there’s nothing in the plan to increase voucher amounts to match rising costs. Oh, and this Medicare boondoggle is part of Ryan’s overall budget plan, which would increase the deficit to $6 trillion in ten years. He’s quite a fiscal hawk, isn’t he?
Paul Ryan thinks this will strengthen the system, but it will only serve as a cash grab for private corporations, with retirees stuck in the middle covering all of the expenses that fall through the cracks. And the objective is clear: continuously sabotage the system until it can no longer function.
By the way, a Romney/Ryan would also repeal “Obamacare,” which would re-open the dreaded Medicare Part-D “donut hole.” Every year under the Bush prescription drug plan that Paul Ryan voted for, if seniors spend $2800 on prescriptions, they have to pay out of pocket for every dollar over and above that amount until they reach $4700 in costs, at which time the government resumes payments. Obamacare has already begun to close the gap, and retirees have saved billions of dollars.
It’s no wonder the National Republican Congressional Committee issued a memo suggesting that candidates use Orwell/Luntz-style words to describe the party’s approach to Medicare.

Take it easy there skippy -the "granny-off-the-cliff " lie made it as Polti-fact lie of the year in 2011. Everyone knew it was a LIE. Too bad the rest of the population has longer term memories then the left lemmings. Everyone knew it was a LIE already so DWS bus tour of LIES through FL didn't get off the ground. It was a LIE in 2010 and is still a LIE in 2012. Remember what happened in 2010.

PORTSMOUTH, VA—According to increasingly concerned campaign sources, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney entered his 400th consecutive hour of uneasy chuckling Monday, apparently stuck in an endless loop of discomfort and apprehension that so far has shown no sign of abating.

Staffers confirmed Romney’s interminable nervous laughter has prevented him from sleeping, eating, or speaking a word for the past 16 days, leaving him visibly fatigued and haggard. Yet the presumptive GOP nominee has maintained a full schedule of campaign appearances, reportedly attending fundraisers, headlining rallies, and sitting for televised interviews, all while emitting an unending stream of anxious chuckles.

Last night I put my ear to the door of his hotel room after he was in bed, and I could still hear him chuckling in there,” Rhoades continued.“Everyone’s really worried about him.”

Romney was in Miami yesterday -- where there are apparently a few senior citizens -- and fielded several questions about the differences between his Medicare plan and that of his running mate. The Republican presidential hopeful struggled badly.
"[M]y plan for Medicare, it's very similar to his plan for Medicare, which is do not change the program for current retirees or near retirees, but do not do what the president has done, and that is to cut $700 billion out of the current program," Romney eventually said.
If the Romney plan is the same as the Ryan plan, and the Ryan plan includes Obama's Medicare savings, then the Romney plan includes the same Obama policy that Romney is condemning.
Romney can support the president's policy that strengthens Medicare, or he can oppose the president's policy that strengthens Medicare, but he can't support and oppose the same policy at the same time.

The Ryan Pick for VP Enables the GOP to 'Dismantle' Obama:
-
The presence of the House Budget Committee chairman Paul Ryan will turn the focus of obama's re-election squarely toward the issues obama has created, which means the public will have even a closer look at Barack Hussein Obama’s dismal and failed record...
-
When Vice President Paul Ryan starts dismantling the president of the United States, obama's failed policies and obamA'S sold out ideas and what they have wrought, that’s something the obama sellouts are going to have to react to or fail again..
-
These idiot libtards are going to have to come back with some substance and forget their bullshit lies... and delusions, in doing that they don't have substance on their side, bringing Obama’s record to now the fore.
-
It's the culture...

*rolls eyes* The slow of the left required re-posting over and over again of facts.

As I have posted before the CBO discounts the double counting of the Medicare cut that transfer monies from Medicare into ObamaCare fund. The CBO stated that it is impossible to say you will use the money to start ObamaCare and still have it to buy bonds for Medicare to allegedly extend it.

So no, the money did not go to where you are claiming. The left is confusing the Medicare cut of funds with another section of the bill that has the panel that will cut Medicare benefits whenever it exceeds their ceiling limits. There was two whacks at Medicare in the ObamaCare bill.

You cannot see the future beyond the end of your nose. Medicare is going insolvent in 2024. The Ryan plan is a ten year plan since implementation. This gives those under 55 some time to put money into a health care plan.

Your truths appear bitter and cynical, you may want another source.

GOP pros fret over Paul Ryan

You’ve heard them on television and read them on POLITICO — cheerful, defiant statements from Republican political professionals about Mitt Romney’s bold masterstroke in tapping Paul Ryan as his running mate, and turning the 2012 presidential race into a serious, far-reaching debate about budgets and the nation’s future.
Don’t buy it.
Away from the cameras, and with all the usual assurances that people aren’t being quoted by name, there is an unmistakable consensus among Republican operatives in Washington: Romney has taken a risk with Ryan that has only a modest chance of going right — and a huge chance of going horribly wrong.
(Also on POLITICO: Ryan alters campaign's dynamic)
In more than three dozen interviews with Republican strategists and campaign operatives — old hands and rising next-generation conservatives alike — the most common reactions to Ryan ranged from gnawing apprehension to hair-on-fire anger that Romney has practically ceded the election.
(Also on POLITICO: Ryan's voting record: Big-spending conservatism)
It is not that the public professions of excitement about the Ryan selection are totally insincere. It is that many of the most optimistic Republican operatives will privately acknowledge that their views are being shaped more by fingers-crossed hope than by a hard-headed appraisal of what’s most likely to happen.
And the more pessimistic strategists don’t even feign good cheer: They think the Ryan pick is a disaster for the GOP. Many of these people don’t care that much about Romney — they always felt he faced an improbable path to victory — but are worried that Ryan’s vocal views about overhauling Medicare will be a millstone for other GOP candidates in critical House and Senate races.

Interesting....

So, the same people that screened companies for green energy investment and selected Solyndra will be the same people that determine "providers and drug companies with inefficient cost overruns."
In case you haven't been keeping up with current events, the Obama administration is so corrupt, the goddam Attorney General is running guns for the Mexican drug cartels. You're really going to trust a bunch of criminals like that to manage your health care?

Paul Ryan heckled in Iowa

DES MOINES — Paul Ryan’s first solo campaign trip since joining the Republican presidential ticket was a little like baptism by fire, as he was heckled at the state fair’s legendary soapbox.

There was no easing into things with a tightly controlled campaign event like the ones typically held by Mitt Romney. Instead, Ryan was dispatched to the Des Moines Register’s soapbox here at the Iowa State Fair, a site where heckling is almost always expected, and where Romney himself last year had a terse exchange with an attendee over Medicare and Social Security, and made the infamous claim that “corporations are people.”

Within minutes of Ryan kicking off his remarks, a small but persistent group of protesters began to yell over him, at times drowning out his remarks. A few women took it a step further and attempted to rush the stage, climbing over reporters crouched in front of the stage to observe Ryan’s remarks.

Ryan, who wore a red-checkered shirt, jeans and cowboy boots, had just begun to address President Barack Obama — who was also campaigning in Iowa — when the shouts began.

“You know, I heard that President Obama is starting his bus tour today, and I heard he wasn’t going to come to the Iowa State Fair,” Ryan said as several protesters began to yell over him.

You have been "LIED" to for 4 years. Is that
what you want for another 4years?
If your greed has stuck in you so far, you want
the rich to go broke? You think your country
will be able to keep paying you to do nothing?
Do you know we are broke, or you thought the
trillions we owe other countries was a gift and
we need NOT pay it back??? How will it ever
get paid or do you care which country will own
us in a very short time? Do you KNOW when
your LIED to, or simply don't care???That I think
is what you really want.
Your guy is running on "smear, dirt and LIES.
And thats the path you are on, and will stay.
No self respect and turned in to beggars and thiefs
Walk proud? Craw is the future and you know it..
Your self respect is gone, you depend on food
stamps and checks from the country, you've lost
your jobs, your homes, and cars. So where are
you staying and who rides you around..Depending
on the man you vote for? The joke is on you.

Yup. Still trying to give the impression that the TEA Party is insignificant. Your future has a lot of TEA in it. Get used to the idea. Prepare for the future. Go get a f**king job. If you can't find a job, there are 30 million illegal aliens here. Take one of those jobs.(But, you have to work as hard as they work.)
