You being a nitwit and all don't know that Libby was sent to jail for lying and actually, there never were any convictions for "leaking", so contrary to your nitwit post, Obama has the leaking White House, confirmed by Democrat head of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Dianne Feinstein. Yes, we know she is backtracking due to political pressure from Obama. Obfuscating Bastard.

I agree with Obama! He believes his voters are stupid enough to be convince that what they hear on the tape is not what they heard!!
just like Obama's non-teleprompter led conversation with Joe the Plumber in 2008 and remember what happened? the Obama-loving MS media villified/Palanized the citizen who dared to ask the question in 2008:

JOE WURZELBACHER, PLUMBER TO OBAMA: Your new tax plan is going tax me more, isn't it?

OBAMA: It's not that I want to punish your success; I just want to make sure that everybody who is behind you that they've got a chance to success, too. I think when you spread the wealth around, it's good for everybody.

----------
an ECONOMIST (Maccallum) later speaking with Joe Wurzelbacher, the Plumber: You know, this redistribution as kind of policy is the sort of the history of the world, if you will. We have, on the one side, the wealth creation idea, and on the other side, the redistribution of that wealth. And we've always butted heads over the years. And sometimes, one wins; sometimes, the other wins.

But when we redistribute, typically, the economy grows more slowly. So, there's a really cost to that kind of ideology.

MACCALLUM: But he spoke with him just a few moments ago. Let's listen to what Joe had to say when he was asked: Did he win you over -- did Barack Obama win you over when you met him?

JOE WURZELBACHER (through phone): No, not at all. His answer actually scared me even more. He said he wants to distribute wealth.

And I mean, I'm not trying to make statements here, but, I mean, that's kind of a socialist viewpoint. You know, I work for that. You know, it's my discretion who I want to give my money to, it's not the government decide that I make a little too much and so I need to share it with other people. I just -- that's not the American Dream.

MACCALLUM:. that's not the American Dream, he said. And, you know, this really gets to the heart of the debate that we're having right now in this country.

MACCALLUM: You know, the economy is in very tough shape, and some people believe, as Barack Obama does that that, you know, sort of giving a little bit from the rich to the poor will help to even things out and will make everybody better off, but Joe disagrees with that.

You know, what do you think people need to understand about that debate right now, given what we're facing, Brian?

WESBURY: Right. Well, this idea of redistribution, if you really look back, the last two times we have tried that in any significant way, one was in the 1970s, and the other was in the 1930s, the Great Depression and the stagflationary years of the 1970s. In between those two times was more when we were cutting tax rates and trying to build the wealth and the entrepreneurship in this country.

So, I think we have great examples of what that does. Also, if you look around the world, you can just look at Europe. Right now, the unemployment rate in Europe, on average is, about 7.5 percent. Even in the bad times we're having in the United States, it's 6 percent. And I think one of the reasons that he we have this disparity, why we've grown faster than Europe, is that they have higher taxes and they have more redistribution and that just hurts economies. That's the general drift of the redistributionist model.

SO IN OTHER WORDS...Obama said spreading Joes wealth around gives those behind him more of "a chance." there we have guaranteed pursuit of wealth and happiness changing to GOVERNMENT GUARANTEED WEALTH. how does Joe's success stop someone else from trying? answer: it doesn't.

Barack Obama has and finally exploited last week’s Aurora massacre to begin the push for gun control, erroneously claiming during a speech last night that Our Second Amendment is about hunting and target practice.

“We recognise the traditions of gun ownership that passed on from generation to generation, that hunting and shooting are part of a cherished national heritage,” said Obama during remarks made at a National Urban League Conference in New Orleans.

In reality, Our Founders put the Second Amendment in Our Bill of Rights not to ensure Americans could enjoy hunting or target practice, but as a protection against government tyranny.

As Howard University School of Law’s Thomas M. Moncure, Jr. explains, the right to bear arms was derived from English common law and was clearly focused around having an armed citizen militia to protect against abuses by the state.

As James Madison wrote in the Federalist Papers, the Right to bear arms was seen as a means of protecting liberties against government intrusion. Madison noted that in “several kingdoms of Europe … governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.”

Patrick Henry also made it clear that firearms were for self-defense and not duck hunting when he stated,“Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense?”

“Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American People’s liberty teeth and keystone under independence,” said George Washington, adding that “The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference.”

Thomas Jefferson also succinctly outlined why gun control only serves to disarm the public while emboldening criminals.

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man,” he stated.

“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. The Internet didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that all the companies could make money off the Internet. The point is, is that when we succeed, we succeed because of our individual initiative, but also because we do things together.”

Independent voters in several battleground states are sour on President Barack Obama's handling of the housing crisis, according to polling data released Wednesday by the Campaign for a Fair Settlement, a coalition of progressive groups focused on the foreclosure crisis.
The poll, conducted by Public Policy Polling, indicated that majorities of likely independent voters in Nevada, Arizona and North Carolina disapprove of how Obama has dealt with the housing crash and its aftermath, while near-majorities disapprove in Pennsylvania and Florida. Majorities of voters polled in all of those states said they feel the administration is not adequately monitoring lenders in the housing market.

The White House is in high spin mode after Senator Feinstein revealed what everyone already knew. Someone in the WH leaked Security Council information. I saw her live on CSPAN Monday. She didn't stutter, her words were measured and sure. even though she may have gotten Bookered by Obama's team, she was very clear in her statement then.
The shrill denials from Axelrod along with the Obama, "no one in MY White House" were reminiscent of the "I'm not a crook" days.
Obama is a failed president, he needs to go.
You are a faild person who needs to go, a complete clown. Obama is our president and will serve 4 more years.

It's common sense and common knowledge, if any prominent business person had said it all the rightwingers would have chimed in in agreement. It's their blind hatred of Obama.
