Even worse Obama and the democrats create and cover up the Fast and furious program which resulted in the death of a Us border agent, and when the congress investigates the incompetence and cover up by holder, he calls them racist.

the same corrupt attorney general that failed to prosecute one of the most blatant acts of voter intimidation in years.

http://biggovernment.com/awrhawkins/2011/12/1...

and lets not forget the green job scandals of taxdollars payoffs for contibutions to solyndra and others.

the incompetent response to the gulf oil crisis,

the millions spent in extravagant vacations and separate planes for obama and his wife,

the million dollar date night,

the shout outs in response to terror attack at ft hood,

the lives lost because of his using war strategy in afghanistan to make political points,

the lawsuit against boeing in north carolina,

the endless golf, basketball and concerts while the rest of us suffered unemployed,

the attacking of americans who dared protest his incompetence and corruption by attacking the tea party,

the attack on the cambridge police who obozo said acted stupidly,

the lawsuits against the state of arizona,

obozo the buffoon is clearly the worst president in the history of america.

Payroll Tax Holiday. Sounds like a good deal but it has to be paid for some way. Obama/Reid's way is to raise taxes on the rich. What this really means is that they want to take money from someone else; give it to the rest of us and then have us use it to pay our payroll tax. That is called wealth redistribution. Of course, they want to cut the middleman out and just take it directly from the rich but either way you look at it, they want to take from someone else and give it to another person who did nothing to earn it.
This payroll tax holiday is just another payoff, we all could use the money but what we need more is jobs, and job friendly policies, this will not help create any jobs, and since it will add to the debt it ultimately will cause us to pay it back with interest in the future resulting in higher taxes and or fees that will hurt jobs in the future.

Oh yeah the 2 black idiots should have been put down log a rabid dog. Any one trying to intimidate to vote for that piece of cht Obama should be put down as I said.
Let one of these piece of sht try that here? They would be sent home in a bag.
Lets see those losers try that again.
Mayne Real Americans need to step up and make a stand. Enough is enough already. The demolosers have divided our country so much that most people do not even see what they have done.
And the supporters of them are to stupid to even see what has taken place. They just go through life "puppeting" what bark olosers says. With no sense what so ever what they are saying or doing.
Sad when people have no common sense. And then the very same idiots cry about jobs. WTF seriously. Why can't they get it?

Obama and Holder will not hesitate to scream racism to shield their incompetence, just like Obama and the democrats attacked the TEA party for being racist so now does Holder attack the congress for questioning his incompetence.

"in a February 2009 speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Eric Holder said that "in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards" and that "we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race."

Talking about race is one thing, pointing fingers and crying racism is quite another.

We would suggest, Mr. Holder, it is you who are the coward."

The lie of the year apparently is that the republicans voted to end medicare.

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/artic...

And the second lie has to be that Obama thinks he is one of the best presidents. That is comical.

The only question about where Obama stands on the list of presidents is whether he is the worst in the history of America, or whether he is the second worst.

How Taxes Really Work

This is a VERY simple way to understand the tax laws. Let's put tax cuts
in terms everyone can understand, maybe even you.

Suppose that every day, ten men go out for dinner. The bill for all ten
comes to $100. If they paid their bill the way we pay our taxes, it would
go something like this.

The first four men, the poorest would pay nothing; the fifth would pay $1;
the sixth would pay $3; the seventh $7; the eighth $12; the ninth $18; and
the tenth man, the richest would pay $59.

That's what they decided to do. The ten men ate dinner in the restaurant
every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, until one day; the
owner threw them a curve (in tax language a tax cut).

"Since you are all such good customers," he said, "I'm going to reduce the
cost of your daily meal by $20." So now dinner for the ten only cost
$80.00.

The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our taxes. So the
first four men were unaffected. They would still eat for free. But what
about the other six, the paying customers? How could they divvy up the $20
windfall so that everyone would get his "fair share?"

The six men realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33. But if they
subtracted that from everybody's share, then the fifth man and the sixth
man would end up being PAID to eat their meal. So the restaurant owner
suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the
same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts each should pay.

So the fifth man paid nothing, the sixth pitched in $2, the seventh paid
$5, the eighth paid $9, the ninth paid $12; leaving the tenth man with a
bill of $52 instead of his earlier $59.

Each of the six was better off than before. And the first four continued
to eat for free.

But once outside the restaurant, the men began to compare their savings.
"I only got a dollar out of the $20," declared the sixth man, but he,
pointing to the tenth. "But he got $7!" "Yeah, that's right," exclaimed
the fifth man, "I only saved a dollar, too. It's unfair that he got seven
times more than me!" That's true!" shouted the seventh man, why should he
get $7 back when I got only $2? The wealthy get all the breaks!" Wait a
minute," yelled the first four men in unison, "we didn't get anything at
all. The system exploits the poor!"

The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. The next night he
didn't show up for dinner, so the nine sat down and ate without him. But
when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered, a little late what was
very important.

They were FIFTY-TWO DOLLARS short of paying the bill! Imagine that!

And that, boys and girls, journalists and college instructors, is how the
tax system works. The people who pay the highest taxes get the most
benefit from a tax reduction. Tax them too much, attack them for being
wealthy, and they just may not show up at the table anymore.

Where would that leave the rest? Unfortunately, most taxing authorities
anywhere cannot seem to grasp this rather straightforward logic!
