Very telling that Obama's ads are all about Hating Romney rather than focusing on any "accomplishments' from Obama. Are Americans really stupid enough to fall for Obama's divisive nonsense? All the ads prove is that Obama is Bully in Chief. Is that all you really want from your President?

I think so, Dan.

The ignorant and the haters of America and the entitlement crowd would rather have a dictator than a leader.

We have bred more takers with our politics than we have givers the last three decades.

The days of American greatness are over, and it hurts my heart and keeps me awake at night thinking about what my kids have lost.

You are absolutely correct.

If Obama was able to STAND on his accomplishments, he wouldn't need to throw stones at the competition.

Why on earth would ANYONE want to have four more years of EMPTY PROMISES.

Gitmo is still open? Yes?

If another country was holding OUR CITIZENS for years and years and years WITHOUT CHARGES, we wouldn't think twice about INVADING that country. Don't be surprised WHEN payback time comes for the INHUMANITY of detaining people WITHOUT CHARGE for years, and years and years.

There are still 4 months until the electon, and the numbers have been changing almost daily. Plus, Democrats poll registered voters, and Rassmussen polls likely voters. Not all registered voters go to the polls and vote. And when you talk to regular people, neighbors etc., none will admit voting for Obama in the past, and none are going to vote for him in November. So funny.

The Obama Campaign had a brilliant strategy from the beginning, and RINO Mitt Romney is being defined in the process… Romney is the worst possible candidate that our successful version of ‘Operation Chaos’ could have selected for these pathetic tea-baggers…

The funny part is that RINO Romney tries to hide from every controversy as he takes every side of an issue. He is an empty suit hiding a piece of white bread soaked in spoiled milk, LOL.

After having the worst three weeks of this campaign so far President Obama is leading RINO Mormon Mitt Romney in the polls; Hell, he even opened up his lead in all of the battleground states. This is very discouraging for the unpatriotic tea-baggers who so desperately want a ‘white-knight’ to get the Black guy out of the Oval Office… Obama will win in another landslide this November…

GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!

We already know that ObamaCare is one of the greatest cons ever perpetrated on the American people.

We were lied to, laughed at and admonished by Barack Obama's administration and the Washington elites as they rammed their government-dictated healthcare scheme down our throats.

But now the truth is coming out

Our Divisive President


Barack Obama promised a new era of post-partisanship. In office, he's played racial politics and further split the country along class and party lines.


By PATRICK H. CADDELL
DOUGLAS E. SCHOEN

During the election campaign, Barack Obama sought to appeal to the best instincts of the electorate, to a post-partisan sentiment that he said would reinvigorate our democracy. He ran on a platform of reconciliation—of getting beyond "old labels" of right and left, red and blue states, and forging compromises based on shared values.

President Obama's Inaugural was a hopeful day, with an estimated 1.8 million people on the National Mall celebrating the election of America's first African-American president. The level of enthusiasm, the anticipation and the promise of something better could not have been more palpable.

And yet, it has not been realized. Not at all.

Rather than being a unifier, Mr. Obama has divided America on the basis of race, class and partisanship. Moreover, his cynical approach to governance has encouraged his allies to pursue a similar strategy of racially divisive politics on his behalf.

The first hint that as president Mr. Obama would be willing to interject race into the political dialogue came last July, when he jumped to conclusions about the confrontation between Harvard Prof. Henry Louis "Skip" Gates and the Cambridge police.

During a press conference, the president said that the "Cambridge police acted stupidly," and he went on to link the arrest with the "long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately."

In truth, the Gates incident appears to have had nothing to do with race—a Cambridge review committee that investigated the incident ruled on June 30 that there was fault on both sides.

Barack Hussein Obama: The Rotten Divider



Sen. Jon Kyl (R., Ariz.) has said the president told him in a closed-door meeting that he would not move to secure the border with Mexico unless and until Congress reached a breakthrough on comprehensive immigration reform. That's another indication Mr. Obama is willing to continue to play politics with hot-button issues.

Add in the lawsuit against the Arizona immigration law and it's clear the Obama administration is willing to run the risk of dividing the American people along racial and ethnic lines to mobilize its supporters—particularly Hispanic voters, whose backing it needs in the fall midterm elections and beyond.

As the Washington Post reported last week, two top White House strategists, speaking on condition of anonymity, have indicated that "the White House plans to use the immigration debate to punish the GOP and aggressively seek the Latino vote in 2012."

On an issue that has gotten much less attention, but is potentially just as divisive, the Justice Department has pointedly refused to prosecute three members of the New Black Panther Party for voter intimidation at the polls on Election Day 2008.


It is the job of the Department of Justice to protect all American voters from voter discrimination and voter intimidation—whether committed by the far right, the far left, or the New Black Panthers. It is unacceptable for the Department of Justice to continue to stonewall on this issue.

Obama is a National Disgrace.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Mr. Obama's campaign emphasized repeatedly that his minister, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, was being unfairly stereotyped because of racially incendiary sound bites that allegedly did not reflect the totality of his views. In the Gates incident and others, Mr. Obama has resorted to similar forms of stereotyping.

Even the former head of the Civil Rights Commission, Mary Frances Berry, acknowledged that the Obama administration has taken to polarizing America around the issue of race as a means of diverting attention away from other issues, saying: "the charge of racism is proving to be an effective strategy for Democrats.... Having one's opponent rebut charges of racism is far better than discussing joblessness."

What you should see as very telling is that RINO Romney’s ads attacking the President’s record hasn’t worked… WHY? Because President Obama accomplishments include single-handedly killed Osama bin Laden – saving the American Auto Industry – pulling our economy from the edge of total collapse – and winning/ending the war in Iraq. They are even predicting that gas prices will be around $2.50 by November… after weeks of complaining about gas prices I haven’t seen you tea-bagging idiots bring it up recently… I wonder why? LOL!

But what is even more telling is that poll after poll shows that even the people who plan to hold their nose and vote for Romney don’t like him. His negatives have climbed back up to an all time high.

The president had a unique opportunity to focus on overarching issues of importance to whites and blacks. He has failed to address the critical challenges. He has not used his bully pulpit to emphasize the importance of racial unity and the common interest of poor whites and blacks who need training, job opportunities, and the possibility of realizing the American Dream. He hasn't done enough to address youth unemployment—which in the white community is 23.2% and in the black community is 39.9%.

Mr. Obama has also cynically divided the country on class lines. He has taken to playing the populist card time and time again. He bashes Wall Street and insurance companies whenever convenient to advance his programs, yet he has been eager to accept campaign contributions and negotiate with these very same banks and corporations behind closed doors in order to advance his political agenda.

Obama’s public-equity record is the real scandal



By Marc A. Thiessen,

Despite a growing backlash from his fellow Democrats, President Obama has doubled down on his attacks on Mitt Romney’s tenure at Bain Capital. But the strategy could backfire in ways Obama did not anticipate. After all, if Romney’s record in private equity is fair game, then so is Obama’s record in public equity — and that record is not pretty.

Since taking office, Obama has invested billions of taxpayer dollars in private businesses, including as part of his stimulus spending bill. Many of those investments have turned out to be unmitigated disasters — leaving in their wake bankruptcies, layoffs, criminal investigations and taxpayers on the hook for billions. Consider just a few examples of Obama’s public equity failures:

1. Raser Technologies.

In 2010, the Obama administration gave Raser a $33 million taxpayer-funded grant to build a power plant in Beaver Creek, Utah. According to the Wall Street Journal, after burning through our tax dollars, the company filed for bankruptcy protection in 2012. The plant now has fewer than 10 employees, and Raser owes $1.5 million in back taxes.

2. ECOtality.

The Obama administration gave ECOtality $126.2 million in taxpayer money in 2009 for, among other things, the installation of 14,000 electric car chargers in five states. Obama even hosted the company’s president, Don Karner, in the first lady’s box during the 2010 State of the Union address as an example of a stimulus success story. According to ECOtality’s own SEC filings, the company has since incurred more than $45 million in losses and has told the federal government,“We may not achieve or sustain profitability on a quarterly or annual basis in the future.”

Worse, according to CBS News the company is “under investigation for insider trading,” and Karner has been subpoenaed “for any and all documentation surrounding the public announcement of the first Department of Energy grant to the company.”

Obama's Record of Failure and Corruption (cont.)

3. Nevada Geothermal Power (NGP).

The Obama administration gave NGP a $98.5 million taxpayer loan guarantee in 2010. The New York Times reported last October that the company is in “financial turmoil” and that “[a]fter a series of technical missteps that are draining Nevada Geothermal’s cash reserves, its own auditor concluded in a filing released last week that there was ‘significant doubt about the company’s ability to continue as a going concern.’&#8201;”


4. First Solar.

The Obama administration provided First Solar with more than $3 billion in loan guarantees for power plants in Arizona and California. According to a Bloomberg Businessweek report last week, the company “fell to a record low in Nasdaq Stock Market trading May 4 after reporting $401 million in restructuring costs tied to firing 30 percent of its workforce.”

Obama the Divider


Finally, President Obama also exacerbated partisan division, and he has made it clear that he intends to demonize the Republicans and former President George W. Bush in the fall campaign. In April, the Democratic National Committee released a video in which the president directly addressed his divide-and-conquer campaign strategy, with an appeal to: "young people, African-Americans, Latinos, and women who powered our victory in 2008 [to] stand together once again."

President Obama's divisive approach to governance has weakened us as a people and paralyzed our political culture. Meanwhile, the Republican leadership has failed to put forth an agenda that is more positive, unifying or inclusive. We are stronger when we debate issues and purpose, and we are all weaker when we divide by race and class. We will pay a price for this type of politics.

GREAT NEWS!!!!!!!!!!
NBC, who edits tapes on Romney statements and then lies about it. You are one gullible screwball, phoney.

Among the 9 key swing states, Rasmussen’s polling shows Romney winning in Florida (46 to 45 percent), Ohio (46-44), Wisconsin (47-44), and Iowa (47-46). It shows Obama winning in Pennsylvania (47-41) and Nevada (52-44). It shows ties in Virginia (47-47) and Colorado (45-45).(Rasmussen hasn’t yet released any polling from New Hampshire.)

Romney leads by very narrow margins in some of these states, and some of Rasmussen’s statewide polls are more current than others. Still, it’s interesting to see how the candidates stack up in the latest tallies from the only national polling outfit that’s currently screening for likely voters.

Aside from the obvious importance of Florida and Ohio, the thing that stands out in these tallies is the importance of Wisconsin. It’s the only Democratic-leaning state in which Romney is currently leading, and it pushes his tally to 269 despite merely being tied with Obama in GOP-leaning Virginia
