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

Oh, you are denying the part that those over 55 are exempt in the Ryan plan. How convenient for your hysteria.
Remember I am not a greedy, selfish republican. I care about others less fortunate around me and future generations. I believe that one of the most unethical cruel acts would be to knowingly and as an overt policy allow sick people to go without medical care. It's called morality.

<quoted text>
Sad, that the Dems have been reduced to personal attacks, gutter sniping because they have nothing to defend their personal attacks, gutter sniping Obama with. Obama has been a failure as president.
Now how about a few Words about the Republicans:

Obstructionist!
In 2010 Mitch McConnell said: "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president." He didn't mention the economy, or education, or jobs, or the housing market. Instead, the goal is to beat Obama, whatever misery it might cause 200 million Americans.

Vindictive!
Despite obstructing every proposal Obama has sent their way, Republicans have the temerity to pass the blame for Congressional failures onto the President and the Democrats. Most of the criticisms border on the absurd. They accuse him of "class warfare" for proposing to tax incomes over $1 million. They blame him for failing to avoid reductions in military spending. They accuse him of single-handedly losing the country's AAA credit rating – and on and on ...

Delusional!
Republicans have persisted in their 30-year delusion that tax cuts for the rich stimulate the economy and the job market. It is simply not true. All Research, even partisan Think Tanks, confirms that there is a direct relationship between reduced tax rates and higher incomes, and that there is no relationship between tax cuts and GDP growth
.
Hypocritical!
Hypocrisy has run rampant among Republicans, starting with their rejection of economic stimulus programs like the one they supported just four years ago. They reversed themselves on the individual mandate, which enjoyed widespread Republican support until Obama endorsed it. They dismissed the payroll tax cut that cuts the taxes they so despise. As noted earlier, they balked at the raising of the debt ceiling, even though it had been raised by Republicans many times before – and on and on.

Inept!
Our do-nothing Republicans are like children pouting until they get their candy. Not in over 40 years, or never, have we seen them this dysfunctional. On all counts of economic growth, progress is stifled by Republican ineptitude and inertia. Bloomberg reports that Democrats over the years have created more private-sector jobs, stimulated the markets to a greater degree, and presided over faster GDP growth. Republicans are outrageously unpopular. At a 10% approval rating, less than pornography, communism, and BP during the oil spill.

Unlike Obama, both Romney and Ryan have records that support their willingness and ability to reach compromise.

Paul Ryan’s Fairy-Tale Budget Plan

By DAVID A. STOCKMAN

PAUL D. RYAN is the most articulate and intellectually imposing Republican of the moment, but that doesn’t alter the fact that this earnest congressman from Wisconsin is preaching the same empty conservative sermon.

Thirty years of Republican apostasy — a once grand party’s embrace of the welfare state, the warfare state and the Wall Street-coddling bailout state — have crippled the engines of capitalism and buried us in debt. Mr. Ryan’s sonorous campaign rhetoric about shrinking Big Government and giving tax cuts to “job creators”(read: the top 2 percent) will do nothing to reverse the nation’s economic decline and arrest its fiscal collapse.

Mr. Ryan professes to be a defense hawk, though the true conservatives of modern times — Calvin Coolidge, Herbert C. Hoover, Robert A. Taft, Dwight D. Eisenhower, even Gerald R. Ford — would have had no use for the neoconconservative imperialism that the G.O.P. cobbled from policy salons run by Irving Kristol’s ex-Trotskyites three decades ago. These doctrines now saddle our bankrupt nation with a roughly $775 billion “defense” budget in a world where we have no advanced industrial state enemies and have been fired (appropriately) as the global policeman.
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/14/opinion/pau...

Like his new boss, Mr. Ryan has no serious plan to create jobs. America has some of the highest labor costs in the world, and saddles workers and businesses with $1 trillion per year in job-destroying payroll taxes. We need a national sales tax — a consumption tax, like the dreaded but efficient value-added tax — but Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan don’t have the gumption to support it.

The Ryan Plan boils down to a fetish for cutting the top marginal income-tax rate for “job creators”— i.e. the superwealthy — to 25 percent and paying for it with an as-yet-undisclosed plan to broaden the tax base. Of the $1 trillion in so-called tax expenditures that the plan would attack, the vast majority would come from slashing popular tax breaks for employer-provided health insurance, mortgage interest, 401(k) accounts, state and local taxes, charitable giving and the like, not to mention low rates on capital gains and dividends. The crony capitalists of K Street already own more than enough Republican votes to stop that train before it leaves the station.

In short, Mr. Ryan’s plan is devoid of credible math or hard policy choices. And it couldn’t pass even if Republicans were to take the presidency and both houses of Congress. Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan have no plan to take on Wall Street, the Fed, the military-industrial complex, social insurance or the nation’s fiscal calamity and no plan to revive capitalist prosperity — just empty sermons.

A joke?
Lookie lookie. Are you the one honest educated republican willing to admit republicans aren't in the business of saving Medicare? Honesty from your party on preserving Medicare and SSI probably doesn't matter to you either..
Dishonest..that's your party and your base.

No one is going to "allow sick people to go without medical care", you idiot. Wake the f**k up and smell reality.

IIRC, you're the one that wished loss of health insurance and then serious illness on those who don't support Obamacare.

Even though you may disagree with his opinions, Ryan is one of the most intelligent members in Congress today. Of course, there are a lot of dopes in Congress so competition is thin in that regard.
