Barack Obama, our next President

A oil industry subsidy denier. Funny how Republican leaders talk about these subsidies. Even the head of the API says if we cut these subsidies, it would cost jobs.
If we subsidize the oil industry 2.5 billion a year & if there are 60,000 oil industry employees, how much of your salary is subsidized???
Quit suckling off the teat of government. Show you have some self worth. Get a job where you actually earn your salary.
Identify one specific subsidy available to the oil industry and not to other industries.

ALL subsidies should be eliminated.

For you, but then, you're an idiot!!

Obama's policies have rewarded me splendidly!! I did well under Bush, but far better under Obama!! Obama helped make me a millionaire!!

Of course, your fear and ignorance is what holds you back.

Had you not waited for the market to hit 6800, you might have made some money.

But you did and you didn't. LOL

Your being a loser is all on you.

Ryan/GOP cuts would throw a combined 600,000 poor children off of food stamps and Medicaid. Literally, Paul Ryan is trying to protect the defense industry by starving hundreds of thousands of economically disadvantaged children.
The “smarter cuts” that Rep. Ryan is touting would slash food stamps, and throw 300,000 children off the program. The cuts are so extensive that they would eliminate food assistance for 1.8 million adults and children. Ryan’s cuts would also eliminate Meals on Wheels, federal funding for child protective services, and healthcare for disabled adults and children.
Children may have a “right to life” in the Republican Party, but the conservative culture of life doesn’t include food. If kids want to eat, they’re on their own.
The only starving children in America are the school children forced to survive the school day on the inadequate Moochelle school lunch diet.

Prove it.
In Pennyslvania 2012 elections.

Democratic House candidates received 2.7 million votes vs 2.6 million votes for Republican candidates.

Republicans won 13 districts & the Democrats won 5.

Ummmmm. I wonder, how did that happen?

Two Democrats won by over a 80& % margin, one had over a 50% margin.

Only one Congressional race was won with less than a 10 point margin.

Its called gerrymandering or cheating., Rigging elections.

Something the Republicans know they need to do to win because they have no ideas & have a record of nearly killing this country under Bush.

Here's just one:

""$2.4 Billion: subsidies to the Big Five producers debated and defeated in the Senate in 2011 and 2012

The Repeal Big Oil Tax Subsidies Act, sponsored by Senator Menendez (D-NJ) was debated and defeated by the Senate for two years running, and would have eliminated $2.4 billion in annual tax deductions for the five major oil companies: BP, Exxon, Chevron, Shell and ConocoPhillips.

Although the move would have been an initial step, it’s just the tip of the iceberg. So called “independent” oil companies are hardly small businesses. Major integrated oil companies also include Occidental, Amerada Hess, Marathon, Murphy Oil and dozens of others. Together, these companies produced 53.5 percent of U.S. oil in 2009.""

All fossil fuel subsidies are ONLY available to fossil fuel producers, you moron!!

That's why they're called fossil fuel subsidies!!~

But I agree that all subsidies be eliminated.

As pretty much every Republican in elective office will tell you, President Barack Obama is the most anti-Israel president in American history. Or:

When President Barack Obama visits Israel next month, he'll be awarded the Presidential Medal of Distinction, Israeli President Shimon Peres' office announced Monday.
Obama, the first sitting U.S. president to receive the recognition, will be awarded the medal for making "a unique and significant contribution to strengthening the State of Israel and the security of its citizens," according to a release announcing the news

The vast majority of the black vote is concentrated in Philadelphia. Outside of Philadelphia, Romney carried Pennsylvania by a significant margin.

The legislature would need to perform extreme gerrymandering to spread the excess votes in the 80% Democrat districts over the rest of the state.

Congress debated nothing when they debated ending these subsidies?

But hey, just for you right whiners put there:

Nebraska Republican Sen. Mike Johanns has informed Republicans in his home state that he will retire at the end of his current Senate term, GOP sources tell NBC News.

In ten days, on March 1, the first installment of the automatic across-the-board spending cuts known as the sequester will begin to take effect. The indiscriminate cuts will slam domestic programs and military spending alike, hitting virtually everything the federal government does other than Medicare or Social Security benefits. The best programs and the worst programs will be treated alike and the steep drop in spending will slow down the economy and jobs growth.
So what does Congress do? It takes the week off, naturally. Because even though everybody in Washington, DC says they hate the sequester, nobody actually wants to get rid of it.

Galt routinely chastises the extreme religious elements, whether Christian fundamentalists or members of the Church of Obama.

Democrats should be cautious in equating support for their party with support for the Personality Cult of Obama. For some strange reason, Americans like Obama much better personally than they like his party policies.
