I already gave you the particulars. The Import Export Bank is giving Petrobras a guaranteed loan to buy American goods and services with so they can drill for oil in a specific oil field off of Brazil. Tell me what is wrong with what I just said or what about that has changed. It is the kind of deal that the Import Export Bank was created to make.

Drill baby drill waa waa waa Obama was able to make money for America off a Brazilian drilling venture waa waa waa. Obama killed Ben Laden, waa waa waa, Obama has the same position on Israel as Bush waa waa waa. When are you turds going to join the real world? You scum don't even know what you are talking about and you still cry about everything Obama does. You just blindly follow what your messiah Limbaugh belches into a microphone every day. You people are disgusting.
Wrong again a@@hole. Limbaugh has been on the radio since the '80s and I haven't listened to him more than 2 hours and not at all since at least 1998.

But the best you can do as a LEFTY is character assasination.... oh well ...what else would I expect out a LEFTY.
I figure you are just earning your " Trickle down Soros money " as usual.

When did I cry about him killing Bin Laden ?
When did I cry when he gave the " Go " to kill those Somali pirates ?

I have never complained about Panetta , Gates ,Clinton and Duncan in his cabinet as they serve the nation well.
I also agree Panetta is a wise choice moving to SoD.

So save you Geo. Soros paid wages for somebody else .

The Right Wing seems to be made up of indpendent cells. Kind of like Al Qiada is. That is the beauty of the Tea Party. They are never esponsible for what anybody else says, even though they support them.

It might get passed when it get closer to the
next election...Then we can hope and get more
promises for what he will do for you if you give
him another 4 yrs.. Now Reid, pulled the wool
over the eyes of his state and got reelected.
How many will fall into the cesspool again?
I'm betting, after the dems has trashed any who
try to "run", Obama, Reid and maybe Pelosi will
be back in the drivers seat. They don't want
change and they call the rep. rich....The dems
like the price your paying for gas....
Who can believe anyone anymore.

Repuglican party values serve as an example of what we can expect if Repuglicans are allowed to implement the policies they propose.

After all, the illegal drug industry is not subject to taxation, is unencumbered by environmental or any other kind of regulation, has free access to all manner of firearms and weaponry and operates in a truly free market.

In fact, if we just look to our neighbor, Mexico, we can see how Repuglican values and policies, as exemplified by truly free competition among the drug cartels, have improved the quality of life for its citizens.

IDIOT:

Bogus Brazilian Oil Claims

Q: Did Obama loan $2 billion to Brazilís oil company to benefit China and George Soros?

A: The president had nothing to do with the loan, which the Export-Import Bank approved for Brazil to buy U.S.-made equipment and services.

The message claims that George Soros would "benefit most" from the loan, but that is also a baseless accusation. Soros is a favorite whipping boy of conservatives because of his early financial help to the liberal group MoveOn.org . And he is indeed a major investor in Petrobras, through his New York-based hedge-fund firm, Soros Fund Management LLC. But the hedge fund recently sold 22 million shares of common stock in the company (which carry voting rights) while buying 5.8 million shares of preferred stock (which is non-voting.) As reported by Bloomberg News, Soros reduced his stake in the company before any of the Ex-Im Bankís promised loan has been dispensed.
