Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text>The White House breaks down the $90 billion on green energy projects in the stimulus bill like this:
$29 billion for energy efficiency, including $5 billion for improvements in the homes and apartments of low-income households
$21 billion for renewable electricity generation, including wind turbines and solar panels
$10 billion for grid modernization, including millions of “smart meters” that read themselves, eliminating the need for meter readers
$6 billion to help establish factories to make batteries for electric cars and other components of advanced vehicles
$18 billion for fast trains
$3 billion for research and development into capturing and sequestering carbon dioxide
$3 billion for job training and scientific advances in green energy
about $2 billion to help build wind turbines, solar panels and similar “green” products
Great explanation. Some won't take the time to search for the facts, they just hear someone call "LIE" and believe it. Sometimes, just sometimes, I think they don't WANT the facts. Hope I'm wrong.

MITT ROMNEY LIED TO 72 MILLION LIVE ON TV.
carol posted the evidence on this thread on Sunday.
Mitt Romney lied: he does not cover citizens with pre existing medical conditions.
This affects 36 million USA citizens!
But but but,
He said he does cover these folks!
That is mean! That is nasty! That is disgusting. That is against God's law to lie like that?
So stuff it! Your guy sacrifices 36 million citizens, so the richest can have a little bit more government dough.

Pathetic lying liberal loser! You will have to get a job WHEN your savior Imam Hussein gets voted out in November!

VERIFIABLE FACTS:

Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.

2. No scandals or skeletons in his closet.(How boring is that?)

3. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School ...and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.

4. Doesn't smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college.

5. Represents an America of "yesterday", where people believed in God, went to Church, didn't screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!

6. Has a family of five great sons....and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab.

But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that "choice" deserves America's scorn.

7. Oh yes.....he's a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.

8. Liberal pundits say because of his wealth, he can't relate to ordinary Americans.
I guess that's because he made that money HIMSELF.....as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad.
Apparently, he didn't understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made him un-relatable to Americans.

Bain Capital, starting with one small office supply store in Massachusetts, turned it into Staples; now over 2,000 stores employing 90,000 people. Bain Capital also worked to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino's, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply and many others.
He was an unpaid volunteer campaign worker for his dad's gubernatorial campaign 1 year.
He was an unpaid intern in his dad's governor's office for eight years.

I'm going with what the black guy said about black folks not voting for Republicans: because we're not stupid.

And it was Kennedy's brother, Robert, who in 1964 assisted the FBI's efforts to destroy Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by approving the wiretapping of the man considered the heart and soul of the civil rights movement.

And to think at one time you could find in black homes across the nation what I used to call the Black Person's Trinity: chintzy, black-velvet portraits of JFK, RFK and Dr. King painted side by side.

As far as other important civil rights legislation, the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 would never have became law if not for Republican senators and congressmen whose overwhelming support offset extreme Democrat opposition.

Now honesty demands that I admit that I have never been in favor of affirmative action programs. As a black man I find them demeaning, and as an American, divisive. But that's an argument for another day. However, the fact remains that it was President Nixon who implemented the first affirmative action program with the Philadelphia Plan in the late 1960s. The plan required government contractors to set goals and timetables for hiring minorities. Nixon was a Republican.

Sure, some will say that it's all well and good to cite the historical record, but what about now? What have the Republicans done of late? I begin by pointing out that Democrats continue to demonstrate a curious affinity for standing in schoolhouse doors, especially when black children are involved.

But of late, Democrats are not trying to keep black children out, but in. In public opinion polls on school choice, blacks overwhelmingly favor vouchers to rescue their children from failing schools. No one knows better the damage that poor schools can do to their children's future and communities than blacks. Republicans are in favor of school choice. Democrats aren't.

Also in more contemporary times, President Bush appointed two blacks to the highest positions in government ever occupied by blacks in America. Today, national security adviser Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of State Colin Powell are very powerful, influential members of the Bush administration. Powell, in fact, is fourth in the succession line for the presidency.

This one is a dumb f**k. Just as I told "it" a week ago.

"It" is either mentally impaired to the point of confusion, or really doesn't know what "It" is ... But, dumb f**k is the most accurate definition.

PS It's also all an act.
Just tryin' to mix it up to cause chaos and confusion.
I offered some suggestions on how it could "kill off" this character.

Trusting Romney is like trusting big corporations to do the right thing. Most have been making money through the recession, like Romney, so really haven't been effected at all by our economy. The trickle down effect is that rich people will remain rich and make all the non-rich people pay for it.

The 1924 Democratic National Convention, also called the Klanbake,[1] held at the Madison Square Garden in New York City from June 24 to July 9, took a record 103 ballots to nominate a presidential candidate. It was the longest continuously running convention in United States political history. It was the first major party national convention that saw the name of a woman, Lena Springs, placed in nomination for the office of Vice President. It was also known for the strong influence of the Ku Klux Klan. John W. Davis, initially an outsider, eventually won the presidential nomination as a compromise candidate following a virtual war of attrition between front-runners William Gibbs McAdoo and Al Smith.

Davis and his vice presidential running-mate, Charles W. Bryan of Nebraska, went on to be defeated by the Republican ticket of President Calvin Coolidge and Charles G. Dawes in the 1924 presidential election.

Will Biden brag how he is still a regular Joe who hangs out in the same diner for 25 years now?(the one that closed 20 years ago).
Will he talk AGAIN about how bad the middle class has been doing under Obama?
Will he talk about his many instances of plagiarism in his career?
Will he repeat his many, many gaffes?
