I do. oBummer was in Congress, which was controlled by Democrats for a year before this mess. It was a banking crisis and the Democrats are to blame, not Bush, dumbass.

oBummer also said the Iraq surge Bush did wouldn't work, but it did and then oBummer did one of his own in Afghanastan (that one did NOT work). Everything oBummer touches turns to shit.

You are a moron stupid Dave.

Great Post -
He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama's "spiritual mentor"; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama's colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?
Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass - held to a lower standard - because of the color of his skin.
The racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin - that's affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn't racism, then nothing is.
Liked that part the best, because it is SO true, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION is Americas version of apartheid !

Limbaugh Revises The Bush Economy Upward
In an attempt to distract from the failures of the Bush administration, Rush Limbaugh dismissed the abysmal economic conditions of 2008, claiming that the unemployment rate was at 5 percent and jobs were plentiful. In reality, the economy was shedding 800,000 jobs a month and the unemployment rate was 7.8 percent. In the final three months of 2008, the Bureau of Economic Analysis reported that the economy shrank by 8.9 percent -- far more than initially thought. Job losses exceeded 2 million:...

"Parallels in History"

In the mid 14th century when the bubonic plague was approaching Europe the people locked their doors and stayed hidden in their homes. 70% of GDP was driven by consumer purchasing. Many merchants were forced to layoff their workers amd close their businesses due to poor sales. GDP shrank 8.9% in the three months before the "Black Death" arrived.

So, it's come to this. Today, a spokeswoman for Mitt Romney responded to an attack ad disseminated by a super PAC supporting President Barack Obama. The ad was a controversial broadside, worthy of a response. The spokeswoman spoke against the ad with conviction. She offered a counter argument that was precise and logical and fair. The spokeswoman cleanly invoked her candidate's greatest legislative achievement, in an eminently reasonable way, in her candidate's defense.

And that spokeswoman's response is being hailed as one of the 2012 campaign season's most colossal cock-ups.
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/08/andr...

Conservatives were up in arms on Wednesday after an attempt by Mitt Romney's spokeswoman to defend the candidate against a negative ad seemed to turn into a tacit endorsement of the Affordable Care Act.

If the foo shits, wear it, moron. It happened all the time and is likely the reason oBummer hides his past so much.

If you weren't so clueless, you would know a lot of people game the system and the middle class white person gets screwed. This is why there was a movement to repeal affirmative action.

Here's a clue for you dumbfk:

"California voters in November approved Proposition 209 and set the stage for copycat efforts to abolish affirmative action."

YOU liberal Democrats YOUR true blue state of Kaliformia were one of the first ones to repeal it so cut the horseshit and Narcissistic personality disorder crap, asswipe.

The USA media distorts the true fact by favoring Obama.

But the people do not think like the media as they feel Obama will be losing the election.

It is told that lots of left-leaning people from USA want to come to look for jobs, as they hear US economy doing bad, and with lots of gun violence, and rumors that Obama will be losing, and that is why they come.

There are a lot of US people who have been harassed crossing the border, by releasing lots of complaints.

"Horrible Experince
while crossing into Canada by car. My family and I were interrogated for more then two hours with the most stupid question that had nothing to do with the trip. The best quetion was, If I knew why he was wearing a uniform and carrying a pistol? we were an a family road trip and we wanted to visit Vancouver but ended up feeling very little..after they treaded us like dirt...they made my kids go thru that horrible experince. We endup expending two hour in Vancouver intead of two days as plan. I WILL NEVER VISIT CANADA AGAING.....I TOUGTH THEY WERE COOL PEOPLE BUT THE BORDER AGENT CHANGED MY PERSPECTIVE....AVOID CANADA—Guest Never visit Canada"

"CBSA
CBSA are all scum and give the rest of the world a bad view of Canada and Canadian people. Mostly on power trips etc. Forget Canada and visit USA if you don't want any hassle! They even bully Canadian citizens not just visitors!—Guest Andrew"

"Left Crying
I am a canadian and, I had the worst experience coming back to Canada from the states. I know I always get checked probably because Im flagged from my husbands record...ok fine, however I dont have a record or anything at all. But dont be so mean to me when getting checked. Why do they ask such stupid questions that are non related to the trip whatsoever. I felt as if they were making fun of me which made me feel insecure and inferior to the lady. Making fun of my clothes I had, and making fun of the artists I liked written on a piece of paper. Did you have to be that mean? Was that fun for you? Do you feel better about yourself when your putting someone down for no reason. I must say though the other time coming back from Mexico, the native border lady was extremely nice and made feel comfortable answering questions. I wish there were more border guards like her. So after being interrogated and treated like a criminal, I left crying and scared, and violated.—Guest Shana"

"CANADA BOARDER CROSSING horror story
My husband and i have been denied entry to Alberta Canada, for no specific reason. First they had said that we do not have enough cash, and my debit cards and credit cards did not matter. Then they threw everything from the car, and even did not ask our permission to do so. My husband wanted to stay and watch so they would not scratch the car or steal anything, but they told him to leave. There is no law against watching your car being searched, Then they found my diary and read it page by page, this is an invasion of privacy, and I am American citizen and never knew that Canadians hated USA citizens so much. We have been humiliated, interrogated and held at the boarder for 3 hours, before they have us a paper that we have not been authorized to enter Canada. They asked personal questions and family matters and also called to Canada to find out if we are lying. We were treated like criminals and I hate Canada for this experience, it reminds me of communist China." (note - China is much better than this. things like this won't happen in Chinese customs to visitors.)

....... many more horror stories about CBSA and the horrible Canadian border.

Canada is definitely a scary oppressive police state, this is not a joke.

BRYAN PRESTON: Why Team Obama Ran with the Dishonest ‘Mitt Killed My Wife!’ Ad.“As I wrote yesterday, we’re dealing with something in the Obama campaign that we haven’t seen much at the top of American life, except in the worst moments of the Clinton era. We’re dealing with a president who is entirely without any sense of ethics, honor or morals. He has lived a lie for most if not all of his life, hiding his true political convictions in gauzy language that makes him appear reasonable and moderate. Having lived a lie, what’s one more lie, in the service of keeping himself in power?”
Amusing. Considering the Rmoney campaign has set a new precedent when it comes to the act of lying. Lying in a way as has never been seen before in campaign history. Rmoney has stated he doesn't control nor is he responsible for what the super PACS say. By definition and by law, the two are NOT CONNECTED.

The right isn't mad about the "lie" in the ad, they're mad that for once Romney's campaign told the truth. Thereby exposing Romney for the lying, flip-flopping, manipulative creep he really is. What the wingnuts are in a twist about is that Saul admitted the truth out loud....now they are calling for her head. How dare she tell the truth about Romneycare.

"To that point, if people had been in Massachusetts, under Governor Romney's health care plan, they would have had health care," Andrea Saul, Romney's campaign press secretary, said during an appearance on Fox News.

That in itself is more damaging than the ad could ever have hoped to be. Romney, caught in the web of his own making.

Looks like Romney's "in over his head."

Has Limbaugh recovered yet? Lol!

http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/political-an...

Governor Romney released an ad today alleging that the Obama administration had weakened the work requirements of the 1996 Welfare Reform Act. That is not true.

How did the Romney campaign’s response to this rather categorical rejection of the ad’s claims? It just repeated them. I swear, trying to engage these people in any sort of reasoned discourse is like looking into the eyes of a goat: nothing there but the determination to keep on keeping on, truth be damned. Team Mitt has a lot riding on this latest effort to tar (racial allusion intended) the president with the “welfare” meme, which unsubtly links repeated GOP claims that Obama is a wild-eyed socialist “redistributor of wealth” to the least popular and most racially explosive programmatic element of the New Deal/Great Society legacy. The welfare ad is going to be in heavy rotation according to Romney campaign sources, and no number of refutations of its central claims (by Clinton or by “fact-checkers” like PolitiFact, which quickly gave the ad a “Pants on Fire” designation) will stop them.

'Buyers Remorse' Leaves Obama Campaign Struggling for Campaign Funds * Pelosi: Stay home!! Don't go the Democratic Convention..
-
Thursday, 02 Aug 2012 010:02 PM
-
Barack Hussein Obama was the first presidential candidate to raise more than $100 million in a month and in 2008 was the first to forgo public money for his campaign. Now, he faces the very real threat of being the first president to be outspent.
-
Tacky wedding gift donations, loser dinner date donations and lotteries.. Sellout and begging for donations... The Poison of Liberalism...
-
I will be the first incumbent president in modern history to be outspent in his re-election campaign, Obama wrote to supporters recently.
-
Many bought into hope and change and they're not getting it. There's some buyers' remorse, jumping ship like drowning rats abandoning a sellout NO Hope and NO change obama...
-
Obama demonized Wall Street bankers and they responded by closing their wallets. He also has called on wealthier Americans to pay more in taxes a hardly an inspiration to donate, his advisers concede.
-
For some of his most liberal supporters, he has not done enough to promote stronger unions or tougher environmental laws. A sellout for most causes...
-
And, unlike four years ago, Obama is not campaigning as an optimistic vessel of hope and change.
-
Never before has an incumbent president failed to outraise a challenger, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, a campaign finance watchdog. In Obama's record-setting 2008 campaign, he made history in September by raising $150 million.
-
Meanwhile, life is good in Communist China, where the business environment isn't so Communist...
-
The Obama administration is the greatest wet blanket to business, and progress and job creation in our lifetime...
-
Every Aspect Of Life In America Is Worse and Sold Out Since an OUTSOURCED, Occupy Obama Took Over....
-
It's the culture...

Did you see the latest Obama ad that reaches a whole new low?

Romney is being accused for the death of someone's wife because one of Bain's investment businesses closed down and she lost her health insurance.

Of course, the woman died 5 years after the company closed down and had been working another job for those 5 years with health insurance coverage and died after battling cancer.

Even the liberal media badgered Gibbs about this grossly false and misleading ad.

Think you will ever directly address the subject of a post? Or will you just keep trying to act like some sort of quasi-intellectual who has a non-answer for everything? The Limbaugh Syndrome as those with more than half a brain call it, and alas, there is no cure other than a lobotomy.
