Obama has done nothing but go negative because his Own Record is Horrendous.
It's laughable for morons like you to ever claim obama is "Moral" in anything after he ASSASSINATED AMERICAN CITIZENS Without Any Due Process.
Think about it before stating more stupidity.
I take it you think that Romney will do better? Consider that Romney has made only fallacious points against Obama, and Obama is just using the facts in this one.

Obama is so unfair. Bishop Rmoney's record as governor has no correlation to how he would be a president. His business experience at Bain Capital is more relevant. Besides Bishop Rmoney vowed he would repeal RMONEYCARE.
Lots of folks have given up all hope for a decent future for their families. They will definitely vote for Obama. The Big Question is whether the rest of us will get off our butts and VOTE to STOP him or surrender to mediocraty and pub sect union sloth which is the defining characteristic of today's Demcoratic platform.

Haaaaaaaaaaaa!


A Flowking Chimpanzee would do better than Obama! Everything Obama has touched has blown up in our faces!


Even Bill Clinton is calling Obama and "Incompetent, Amateur that doesn't know how to be president."

Romney could sit silently in a chair for 4 years and do wildly better than Obama who's NEVER Left the Campaign Fundraiser Trail since 2008! Obama is a COMPLETE JOKE and a National Disgrace.

Just look at the short list of his screw Ups!




1) High Unemployment despite blowing $1 TRILLION in 'faux stimulus',

Bill Clinton dubbed Obama 'incompetent': Book

New York,
Sun May 13 2012

Former US President Bill Clinton dubbed Barack Obama "incompetent" and pressed wife Hillary to quit her job as secretary of state to challenge the incumbent President in the primaries, a new book has claimed.

"The country needs you!" the former president had told Hillary Clinton, urging her to run this year, according to accounts of the conversation included in Edward Klein's new biography of Obama.

Obama, Bill Clinton had said, according to book excerpts, "doesn't know how to be president" and is "incompetent."

The title of Klein's explosive, unauthorised biography of Obama, "The Amateur", was taken directly from Bill Clinton's bombshell criticism of the president, the author said.

"Barack Obama," Bill Clinton said, "is an amateur."

Obama stumbles out of the gate


National polls have moved to a virtual tie this month.


5/25/12

Nothing inspires Democrats like the Barack Obama swagger — the supreme self-confidence on stage, the self-certainty in private. So nothing inspires more angst than when that same Obama stumbles, as he has leaving the gate in 2012.


That’s the unmistakable reality for Democrats since Obama officially launched his re-election campaign three weeks ago. Obama, not Mitt Romney, is the one with the muddled message — and the one who often comes across as baldly political.

Obama, not Romney, is the one facing blowback from his own party on the central issue of the campaign so far And most remarkably, Obama, not Romney, is the one falling behind in fundraising.

To top it off, Vice President Joe Biden has looked more like a distraction this month than the potent working-class weapon Obama needs him to be.

National polls, which had shown Obama with a slight but steady lead over Romney through April, moved into a virtual tie this month.




It's clear now that Romney will attack the Problems and Obama will attack the people.

President Obama Won’t Be Returning His Donations From Bain Capital!


What a Filthy Hypocrite!!!


By Hunter Walker

Though the Obama campaign has repeatedly attacked Mitt Romney for his career at Bain Capital, President Obama still accepted $7,500 in campaign contributions from three Bain executives. His campaign press secretary, Ben LaBolt told The Politicker the president has no intention of giving the money back.

Speaking of records...

Obama's (prior to being President) record amounts to that of:

Acting as a (inner city/public assistance) community organizer.

Publishing a book about his black "father" (that abandoned him and his mother when he was very young).

Hanging out with anarchists and communists.

Claiming to be a "college professor" (who fails to understand the unconstitutionality of knowingly and willingly selling illegal assault weapons to drug cartels). Some of these illegal weapons were subsequently used to murder innocent US and Mexican citizens.

Having a record of refusing to release his scholastic records, both during and after his run for the Presidency (just try doing that while you seek employment in the private and non-elected public sector).

Being a long time member of a hate filled and, of course, tax exempt "church".

Becoming a Congressional Black Caucus Senate member in 2005 (even though he's half white) who almost immediately began his run for the Presidency (rather than fulfilling the Senatorial oath of office he swore to uphold).

Accusing one, or more, of the family members who made an effort to care for, and raise, him as "being typically white" (while his black father was typically absent).

Not having "time" to visit his dying mother in Hawaii (yet he, and his family, now have plenty of time for taxpayer funded Hawaiian vacations). Btw, Obama was apparently "too busy" to visit his dying mother because he was helping plan the 1995 Million "Man" March and/or pedaling his "Dreams of my father" (who dumped me) book.

Agree.


Obama's screwed so many Americans and lost their support that he's now trying to college campuses trying to convince 18-20 yr olds to vote for him since they aren't aware of the destruction he's responsible for.




I say: "LET'S TALK ABOUT OBAMA's Public Equity RECORD!"


Romney's Record too. The Comparison is very insightful....

Forget Bain — 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,”

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.”


5) Abound Solar, Inc. The Obama administration gave Abound Solar a $400 million loan guarantee to build photovoltaic panel factories. According to Forbes, in February the company halted production and laid off 180 employees.

6) Beacon Power. The Obama administration gave Beacon — a green-energy storage company — a $43 million loan guarantee. According to CBS News, at the time of the loan,“Standard and Poor’s had confidentially given the project a dismal outlook of ‘CCC-plus.’” In the fall of 2011, Beacon received a delisting notice from Nasdaq and filed for bankruptcy.


7) SunPower got a $1.2 billion loan guarantee from the Obama administration, and as of January, the company owed more than it was worth.


8) Brightsource got a $1.6 billion loan guarantee and posted a string of net losses totaling $177 million.


9) Solyndra — the solar panel manufacturer that received $535 million in taxpayer-funded loan guarantees and went bankrupt, leaving taxpayers on the hook.

Mitt Romney Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge
Mitt Romney Signs Taxpayer Protection Pledge
Massachusetts Governor makes written promise to eschew tax hikes
WASHINGTON, D.C.– Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, a candidate vying for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination, recently signed the Taxpayer Protection Pledge sponsored by Americans for Tax Reform (ATR). The Pledge commits signers to “oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses … and oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates."
Gov. Romney became the first major candidate to sign the Taxpayer Protection Pledge on December 31st, 2006. As Governor, Mitt Romney pressed for several major tax cuts in the difficult blue-state environment of Massachusetts.
ATR has offered the Pledge to all candidates for federal office since 1987. To date, President George W. Bush, 43 U.S. senators, and 197 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signed the Pledge. Additionally, seven Governors and over 1,100 state legislators have signed the Pledge as well.
“In signing the Pledge, Gov. Romney firmly commits himself in writing to fiscal discipline and economic common sense,” Grover Norquist said.“Mitt Romney has told taxpayers in no uncertain terms that he plans to look out for their interests.”
“I strongly encourage every Presidential candidate to sign the Pledge,” Norquist continued.
