An Obama Reelection and What It Will Mean for Filipinos

Sep 7, 2012 Full story: www.philnews.com 46

Nowhere in recent American political history has there been such a polarization in political party ideology as we are seeing in this year’s presidential elections. It appears that both the Democrats and the Republicans have dug in their heels and are refusing to give an inch to the other side. That leaves only a sliver of undecided voters in swing states to determine the outcome of this presidential race.

Not just for filipino American but for all American's!

Mitt Romney: Give a good speech! They're anti-Barrack Obama. Romney, Tell the American people his going to create jobs but he didn't say, How!

Mitt Romney: Say, His going to lower the corporate taxes from 35% to 25% that is very good to the richs and powerful.

Mitt Romney: Say, His not going to taxes on the middle class, But if his going to lower the corpotate taxes where is he going to get the money to pay for all the goverment expense!

Right now the government don't have any money to pay all that. The only way to do that is to raise taxes. Either consumer taxes or reat estate taxes or corporate taxes. NOT ATLEAT ROMNEY GOING TO SELL AMERICA TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. THATS EXACTLY WHAT HIS GOING TO DO IF HE BECAME THE PRESIDENT. IF HE EVER. I'LL SAY, NO TO ROMNEY!

Nothing; the role of a US President is to preside over issues facing his/her nation. Filipinos are not his or the United States problem or concern. The Philippines have their own leaders who need to focus on filipinos. The days of handouts are upon us.

The DNC has a carload of trinket promises for everyone in your entire family and they're not going to allow that mean, greedy Mitt Romney to stand in the way of your trinket promise. If you have a wart on your butt barack and michelle obama will personally remove it. If you need anything barack and michelle obama will be there...That's the kind of loving care you and your entire family will receive...that's the guarantee of the DNC.

Note: Trinket Promises are limited to one per household and must be redeemed within 30 minutes. Supplies are limited. No substitutes. Void in 52 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and Jerusalem.

Given that Obama wishes to put all Americans on the public dole and outsource our jobs to Asia folks in the Phillipines should like him.

Obviously the tent had no room for God...

CHARLOTTE, N.C.— In a rare moment of actual convention drama, Democratic officials reinserted language back into their official platform Wednesday evening that invokes God and affirms the role of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, trying to defuse Republican attacks over the party’s stances.
But the maneuver may have backfired, infuriating delegates who objected to the changes.
The new amendments were introduced by former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland and put to a vote by convention chairman Antonio Villaraigosa, who was forced to call for three voice votes in an effort to pass the changes.
“I, uh, I guess I’ll do that one more time,” Villaraigosa said after a second vote of delegates in the Time Warner Cable Arena resulted equally loud “ayes” and “nos.”
“You've got to rule, and then you've got to let them do what they're gonna do,” a woman standing to his left could be heard saying in a feed carried by C-SPAN.
After a third attempt, Villaraigosa declared that the amendments had passed.

Attention no to freedom!!! If you want to pay more taxes you can do that when you file. In the meantime don't stoop to the level of a TAX HUNGRY SELF SERVING MARXIST by the name of b. h. obama...

23,000,000 unemployed Americans cannot afford to wait on b. h. obama to finish another self serving golf game. 43 months above 8.2% unemployment is waaaaaaaaay past being enough BS...

b. h. obama is to jobs, prosperity and America what a drunk farting gasbag is to fine dining.

Mitt Romney’s financial company, Bain Capital, invested in a series of firms that specialized in relocating jobs done by American workers to new facilities in low-wage countries like China and India.

During the nearly 15 years that Romney was actively involved in running Bain, a private equity firm that he founded, it owned companies that were pioneers in the practice of shipping work from the United States to overseas call centers and factories making computer components, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

As part of a Democratic effort to portray Mitt Romney's former company Bain Capital as an enemy of the working class, three former employees of companies owned by the private investment firm took the stage at the Democratic National Convention Wednesday to criticize the Republican presidential nominee's business record.

"When Mitt Romney talks about his business experience, remember - it's not experience creating good-paying jobs; it is experience cutting jobs," said Cindy Hewitt, a former employee of Bain-shuttered company Dade Behring. "It is experience shutting plants. It is experience making millions by making life tougher for hard-working Americans."

"Of course I understand that some companies succeed and others are not - that's the way our economy works," she continued. "But it's wrong when dedicated, productive employees feel the pain while folks like Mitt Romney make profits."

Romney has staked his campaign in part on his experience in the private sector. But his controversial history with Bain, including a muddied timeline at the company and its involvement with shipping jobs overseas, has made that record a target for President Obama's reelection campaign.

"When Romney and Bain took over the mill, they loaded it up with millions in debt," said David Foster, a steelworkers union leader who's appeared previously in an Obama ad featuring the story of GSL Steel. "Within months, they used some of that borrowed money to pay themselves millions. Within a decade, the debt kept growing and was so large the company was forced into bankruptcy."

I think it only fair to post your previous exclamation. It is easy to use dupes to post dubious and biased material, which is obviously the case here. Educational though. We learn how Obama's operatives - operate.:-) This person's last comment was:

Nuff said.

Not much was mentioned in the obama owned media,but the Russian leaders are laughing at the
once most powerful nation on earth,as they waved a the shores of the gulf of mexico from an armed nucear missle submarine,proving the statement from obama that he has improved the borders of the US better than any president in history.Even God held back the surely owned lighting bolts aimed at this biggest liar in history,second only to former " I didnt have sexual relations with her" democrap president

Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson has reportedly donated $10 million to a super PAC supporting Mitt Romney, as he hinted he would after a recent Las Vegas meeting with the GOP candidate.

Adelson’s $10 million check is by far the biggest gift to date to Restore Our Future, a group that’s attracted five new billionaire donors in as many weeks.

As my colleague Steve Bertoni pointed out, having spoken at length to Adelson for a Forbes cover story,$10 million may just be the start of the Las Vegas Sands chief’s generosity. He may well give $100 million, as he’d planned to donate to Newt Gingrich’s now-defunct campaign.
Adelson is just the latest billionaire to jump on the Mitt Romney bandwagon. With his gift, the tally of America’s richest people donating to Mitt Romney-backing super PAC Restore Our Future is 32 — or, 8% of the Forbes 400.
Look for that number to swell in the coming months as wealthy donors who’d been firmly on Team Newt Gingrich or Rick Perry, for instance, concede and write checks to Romney versus the alternative — a second Obama term.
Here are the 31 billionaires who’ve joined Sheldon Adelson in backing Restore Our Future:
- Vulture investor Wilbur Ross, who donated $100,000 in May.
- Oil and gas pioneer Harold Hamm, who added $985,000 to the pro-Romney PAC’s cash pile.
- Retail king Leslie Wexner of The Limited clothing chain, who wrote a check for $250,000.
- Gristedes supermarkets head John Catsimatidis, who gave $50,000 via his United Refining oil company.
- Hedge fund king Louis Bacon, who’s handed over $500,000 so far.
- Jim Davis, who made his fortune with New Balance sneakers and has donated $1 million.
- Citadel hedge fund chief Ken Griffin has handed over $2.85 million since December.
- Greenwich-based hedge funder Paul Tudor-Jones II kicked in $200,000.
- New York investor Thomas Kaplan wrote a check for $100,000.
- While neither Charles nor David Koch has given publicly to a Romney-backing super PAC this cycle, David’s twin brother Bill,“the other Koch”, has given $2 million total, both personally and via his Oxbow Carbon company.
- New York hedge funder Bruce Kovner opened his wallet to the tune of $500,000.
- Leveraged buyout pioneer Henry Kravis followed suit with a $100,000 gift.
- Hotel heirs Bill and Richard Marriott have given $1 million each to the cause.
