… and the chess pieces begin to maneuver Romney into a corner. President is for the middle class and Romney is for the Mega-Rich…

Add to that the fact that a Romney donor at a Koch Beach Bash fundraiser said, "I don't think the common person is getting it ... My college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies -- everybody who's got the right to vote -- they don't understand what's going on. I just think if you're lower income -- one, you're not as educated, two, they don't understand how it works, they don't understand how the systems work, they don't understand the impact."

WOW!

Obama is a far left socialist who has lied to the people from day one!

A dope smoking radical! He sit in a radical church for over 20 years and told the American people he didn't know Rev. Wright had those viewpoints.

Bill Aires and his wife were radicals who were part of group noted for various bombings in the U.S., one of which killed a police officer, they helped Obama plan out his campaign. He said he didn't know about that either.

Obama has flipped off the church at every turn, yet he publicly endorses Gays whose history speaks for itself. The diseases and the child molestation. His staff have worked hard to forward the Gay Agenda in schools, making it illegal for our children to opt out of these classes.

Obama promised to cut the deficit in half in his first term, instead he has pushed the country more in debt than all of the previous presidents put together.

He said give him the stimulus and the unemployment rate would be below 5% but it's 8.2% and climbing.

He gave billions to several so called green companies and now the monies are gone and so are the companies. All while publicly promising to ruin the coal industry and push the the price of heating and cooling ours homes to astronomical levels, not to mention the price of gasoline.

Obama bragged he saved the car industry but Ford Motor did fine without him. All he did was give GM, Chrysler and the unions money they didn't have to pay back. Regardless of the slick accounting tricks, the taxpayers did not get their money back.

Healthcare, He cut medicare by 500,000,000 dollars while at the same time signing an executive order not to deport illegals. A move that is Marxist in nature.
The plan was Marco Rubio's plan and congress may have very well passed it if given the opportunity, couldn't let that happen.

So who is paying for their healthcare? What was that 11,000,000 illegals in the country and Obama's plan covers another 18,000,000?
"It sounds curiouser and curiouser"

Obama could have removed laws that allowed citizens to go across state lines to shop for insurance which would create competition and lower healthcare premiums. Those large healthcare companies give money to his campaign to make sure that doesn't happen.

Now we know the Supreme court upheld Obama care as a tax, Obama swore it wasn't a tax.

What I am sure most people didn't notice is the Healthcare companies stock went way up after the court upheld Obama care.

We have been slicked! This is not about better healthcare for us, it's about big money for the healthcare companies and the Democratic party.

When does common sense kick in? The more people who buy the insurance the more money the companies make. Better healthcare?

Now we find Obama is supporting a U.N. gun resolution that basically says only the governments
of the world will be allowed to keep guns not private citizens. Bush turned the U.N. down cold.

Obama says "This will not affect U.S. citizens and it has no bearing on the second amendment"

When the U.N. was asked to write in an exemption for U.S. citizens they refused! The U.N. refused to even give an exemption for sporting purposes and yet Obama says "Don't Worry About It"
Just like he told us the healthcare mandate is not a tax and then his lawyers tell the Supreme Court it is a tax and now Obama says it isn't a tax!

Obama PRETENDS to care about the middle class taxpayer, but FORGETS that the Supreme Court is calling Obamacare a TAX !!!

Obama ALREADY INCREASED our taxes (obamacare) and tries to look like he cares by trying to keep our OTHER TAXES lower.

Slight of hand Obama. We ARE WATCHING>>>>

At $70 billion a year (for the 'rich'), it will take 20 years to cover a single $1.4 trillion Obama deficit.

There's no way to catch up with Obama's "plan".

I think before he self destructed over Mitt Romney and Bain, Bill Clinton said all the cuts will have to go.

Can/t have any bigger gov/t than the Corporate Fascist MIC that is already in place.
