Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

Can anyone explain why the military allows MO to claim she is supporting them? She seems to be the epitome of hypocrisy imo. The First Witch proclaimed almost angrily on "The View" that SHE WOULD continue to be involved in the military regardless of who won the election.

Ask yourself why? What is her hidden agenda?

Look at the money now being wasted by the Obamas trying to prevent THE MILITARY from being allowed to vote early in OHIO!!!

They are so afraid of losing and so corrupt, they'll stop at nothing.

You remember Carol, That administration when Paul Ryan voted yes yes yes to the spending & policies that caused it?
My God,how any Republicans admit to the wrong doing they did under Bush?
I can think of one.
Let me know when Mr Budget Hawk, Paul Ryan, apologizes for helping create this mess.
Aw heck, wait for a couple hours, shake out the wrinkles and maybe by some miracle it will sound more brilliant than when you posted it before.

Nice try there passing along total and complete falsehoods. The town hall meeting was when Democrats were in control of Congress.
This was what she said word for word:
"I am one of your middle class Americans and, quite frankly, I'm exhausted... I'm exhausted of defending you. I'm exhausted of defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for. And I'm deeply disappointed with where we are right now.
I have been told that I voted for a man who said he was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I am one of those people and I'm waiting sir. I'm waiting. I don't feel it yet. And I thought, while it wouldn't be in great measure, I would feel it in some small measure... And quite frankly Mr. President, I need you to answer this honestly: Is this my new reality?"
But keep spreading falsehoods, leosnana. These lies will, hopefully, soon be over.
Velma Hart told CNBC that she still supports Obama and noted that the economy is improving,

I completely agree carol.
By choosing Paul Ryan as his running mate, Mitt Romney has chosen to not run from the radical, extreme label, but to embrace it.

Ryan would raise taxes on the middle class and cut taxes for millionaires. His budget replaces the current tax structure with two brackets – 25 percent and 10 percent – cutting the top rate from 35 percent. This will cause federal tax revenue to fall by $4.5 trillion over the next decade, which increases the national debt further. Ryan’s answer to this is simple: Massive cuts in social programs – which is typical of devotees of Ayn Rand and those who embrace starve-the-beast theory, and Ryan is demonstrably both.

In a 2008 debate, Charlie Gibson asked Barack Obama about his support for raising capital gains taxes, given the historical record of government losing net revenue as a result. Obama persevered:“Well, Charlie, what I’ve said is that I would look at raising the capital gains tax for purposes of fairness.”
A most revealing window into our president’s political core: To impose a tax that actually impoverishes our communal bank account (the U.S. Treasury) is ridiculous. It is nothing but punitive. It benefits no one — not the rich, not the poor, not the government. For Obama, however, it brings fairness, which is priceless.

Why Obama's policies fail.
Need more outcomes and less rhetoric and class warfare.
Obama is not working!
Gibson asked a trick question assuming he really knew the truth.

Capital gains revenue spike after a rate cut because leading up to that taking place, people hold off on transactions to save money when the lower rate kicks in. Once that spike is passed, then it is no longer the case.

Likewise, if the rate was set to raise Jan 1, 20123, you would expect a spike in sales (& tax revenues) in the months leading up in order to save tax money.

Very true given this morning's headlines about the shooting of a security guard at Family Research Council this am. Authorities were treating the attack as a case of domestic terrorism.
So, what is the moronic Left like HuffPo saying about this? Condemning the act? Heck no they are the radical left. They attack Family Research Council and blame Ryan.
I think we are seeing a link between violence and the Radical Left like HuffPo, MM, TPM, and Think Progress and their unabashed spreading of HATE and irrational thinking. Heck, look at the boards this morning-the Left here are their readers.

I also know the answer to the question that stopped your bs in it's tracks.
You bring 20 names to this thread and not much else__you failed my test a long time ago pal, you don't even know where you live. There are are quite a few posters here who don't know where they live. Hah!
Yea, but you could be lying. We get to look at Ryan's amazing blue eyes, hunky P90X body, his pretty wife and his young children (how does one measure young children's productivity-sounds a little communistic to me).

You, we get to judge you by your posts. Too bad for you that is all you have.

It would be helpful if the leftists would go ahead and attack En masse so that we could eliminate the problem once and for all.
Its not a matter of if, but a matter of when, and we'd all be better off in the long run.

Socialism does not work, as endless historical attempts have demonstrated. Millions killed, more than all religious wars combined. And...In order to overcome this problem, those attempting to institute socialist systems tend to find scapegoats.

Under Ryan's plan, which has passed the Republican-controlled House twice in slightly different versions, the Internal Revenue Service would tax the wealthiest Americans less, but many of the poorest ones more; Medicare would be transformed; Medicaid would be cut by about a third; and all functions of government other than those health programs, Social Security and the military would shrink to levels not seen since the 1930s.

(Republican) David Stockman's main complaint about the Ryan budget, which reflects broader frustration with today's Republican party, is that it preserves massive and unnecessary spending on Defense and other programs while screwing people who actually need help by cutting food stamps, Medicaid, and other poverty-mitigation efforts.
