Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Sure Carol but what's the GOP's answer? Cut taxes and regulations which didn't do anything the last time it was tried. Let's take a look at the Romney way of doing business.
Sensata Technologies in Illinois made sensors for the automobile industry and made record profits with the resurgence of the auto industry. That wasn't enough for its owners Bain Capital who figured they could line their own pockets even more by shipping the jobs and equipment to China. While Romney is no longer with Bain it's his business strategy that they're going by and as a major stockholder he still makes money from their deals. The workers of Sensata went to Iowa and to the GOP convention in Tampa to plead their case directly with Romney who as the founder and a major stockholder in Bain still has considerable influence. Their pleas fell on deaf ears.
Bain in addition to padding their profits by paying Chinese workers a fraction of what the American workers were making got a tax deduction for shipping those jobs and equipment to China. Democrats have introduced legislation to end this deduction but have been consistently blocked by the Republicans.
Industries are dropping people from full-time employment and firing employees like dead flies.

However, if you think this is the better alternative over providing incentives to put people back to work again, you go right ahead and vote for another four years of failure.

I'm going to vote my conscience. There's a better alternative.

“You dum dums?” That’s not a way to preface a persuasive argument. Reason works better than baseball bats in debates.
I do “grasp the overall concept of what is happening to the country” and apparently my assessment differs from yours. Therefore, you assume that my assessment is incorrect and conclude that I must be a “dum dum.”
Details do matter. If Romney/Ryan say they have a budget, reasonable people will be convinced if the can see it, but being told that it is still incomplete is not convincing.
I isn't my fault you are a dum dum.... Go look in a mirror and you will find your reason there.

I would be willing to bet that you are one of those people who actually believe anything said, printed by, or televised by the left leaning, Soros funded, left wing media.

Unlike the Democrats who have tabled the budget for the past 3.5 years the Republicans have presented, debated, and passed a budget for each of the years since 2010.

Defense spending creates American jobs!
Obama's glut of entitlement spending creates increased drug sales, and drug cartel jobs for Mexicans.
So gov't does create jobs? Spending on education creates more than twice as many jobs as spending on the military.
What you state doesn't speak to Romney's hypocrisy regarding his military budget. Romney wants to add $2 trillion to the defense budget. With what, pixie dust?? We could cut "defense" and still ensure our safety from foreign threats.
The US spends more on its military than the next 19 biggest spending nations combined. If the point of spending is to create jobs, then the military is the last place that we would want to put our dollars. The military contractors are screwing this country. 300 dollar hammers...600 dollar toilet seats...1200 dollar coffee makers....think there might be a little price gouging? And who makes the money? Can you say Defense Contractors? Talk about waste.

The U.S. Employment Effects of Military and Domestic Spending Priorities: 2011 Update
Robert Pollin | Heidi Garrett-Peltier | 11/28/2011

This study focuses on the employment effects of military spending versus alternative domestic spending priorities, in particular investments in clean energy, health care and education. We first present some simple alternative spending scenarios, namely devoting $1 billion to the military versus the same amount of money spent on clean energy, health care, and education, as well as for tax cuts which produce increased levels of personal consumption.

Our conclusion in assessing such relative employment impacts is straightforward:$1 billion spent on each of the domestic spending priorities will create substantially more jobs within the U.S. economy than would the same $1 billion spent on the military. We then examine the pay level of jobs created through these alternative spending priorities and assess the overall welfare impacts of the alternative employment outcomes. We show that investments in clean energy, health care and education create a much larger number of jobs across all pay ranges, including mid-range jobs (paying between $32,000 and $64,000) and high-paying jobs (paying over $64,000). Channeling funds into clean energy, health care and education in an effective way will therefore create significantly greater opportunities for decent employment throughout the U.S. economy than spending the same amount of funds with the military.

Hey liar!

Here is Mitt Romney:

I will cut taxes for the richest 4 times more than Bush!

Bush lost 8 million jobs.

But I, Mitt Romney, by the power of my God from Uranus:

Will command Corp America to hire, Hire, HIRE!

(it won't really matter if they do so! Me and my richest on earth will be even more filthy rich! The government will be weaker: so we will demand more budget cuts!)

Ha ha ha!

Mitt Romney!

Under him:

Say goodbye:

Medicare! Gone.
Social Security! Gone.
Education! Gone.
Worker protection: Gone.

More money for billionaires? Yes! Yes! Yes!

Even if the all the numbers don't add up nice and tidy-like with the Romney/Ryan plan, the formula still is a winner:
Compare this...
More incentives to hire; more people working, more people paying taxes; closing loophole so wealthy pay more; cutting back size of federal government in lieu of states' rights; and cutting spending unless absolutely necessary.
To this, the alternative...
A second Obama term would guarantee the president’s health care law will be fully implemented, and businesses are warning that may affect their employees.
Darden Restaurants, which owns more than 2000 restaurants and employs 180,000 people is the latest industry to look for a way to avoid ObamaCare.
White Castle, McDonald’s and Denny’s have said they are looking for a way to avoid the new employer mandate due to take effect in 2014.
Westgate Resorts CEO David Siegel who employs 7000 people has warned if Obama wins, there will likely be layoffs.
Employment law attorney, Robert B. Fitzpatrick, made a prediction if Obama wins re-election:“...You're just playing with the numbers and playing with the hours to try to avoid compliance with providing health care to employees...and there are going to be consequences.”
..."and there will be consequences..."
In fact, we are seeing the consequences even before 2014.
The choice couldn't be more clear.

Last week when the main stream media reported that Romney won the debate they were hailed by the right as impeccable sources of truth. This week when the same media reported that Biden won, the right cries bias.
The philosophy of the loony right is to take both sides of an issue when its convenient for them. Another example is their desire to have less government regulation in their lives. But in the case of a woman's body they want MORE regulation. I guess I see why these morons support Romney, he is on both sides of every issue too.
Who thought Biden won? He is a laughing stock. The only difference between him and Obama was you could tell someone was IN the chair, actually falling out of the chair.

How Does a Traditionalist Vote?

An intelligent conservative’s guide to the presidential election

I’ve said on Facebook that I’m tempted to cut out the middleman this November and write in a vote for Goldman Sachs. But if you’re a traditionalist conservative and you want to accept one of the offerings officially on your ballot, which do you choose?

For partisans, this is a no-brainer. For conservatives in the vein of, say, Russell Kirk, it’s anything but. Faced with the non-choice between Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Thomas Dewey in 1944, Kirk said no to empire and voted for Norman Thomas, the Socialist Party candidate. There was no Fox News to tell him a conservative couldn’t do that.

For all that Kirk didn’t like libertarians —“chirping sectaries,” he called them — if he were in search of a peace candidate today he might well consider the Libertarian Party’s Gary Johnson. Or, closer to Norman Thomas, the Green Party’s Jill Stein.

There’s even an anti-empire case — not a strong one, but one outlined by Justin Raimondo here — for Barack Obama. The incumbent is at least incrementally better than his Republican rival on foreign policy. It’s impossible to imagine Romney not having done every bellicose thing that Obama that did in his first term (from ramping up the drone war in Pakistan to participating in the Libya attack), and Romney has promised a great deal more: more brinksmanship with Iran, more baiting of Russian bears and Chinese dragons, more taxpayer dollars for Pentagon pork. For a smaller military budget and the prospect of fewer wars — according to both candidates themselves — a pragmatic anti-empire conservative might lean toward Obama.

Lindsay Lohan Endorses Romney, And It's Actually A Really Big Deal
Saturday, October 13, 2012
Business Insider ^| Oct. 12, 2012, 9:44 | Walter Hickey

Lindsay Lohan came out in support of Mitt Romney yesterday. While most would, at first glance, write this off as gossip, it's the latest instance of an evolving trend that jeopardizes President Obama's chance at winning the White House. Lohan, by all accounts, is a typical low-information voter. And low information voters, like it or not, will decide this election.

Fox's Charles Krauthammer Suggests Media Shouldn't Always Fact-Check Candidates' Claims
http://mediamatters.org/video/2012/10/12/foxs...
But that only applies to Mitt.
Kind of like whining about the MSM saying Biden won his debate, whilst dancing on the MSM grave of the last Obama debate performance.
Wall Street Journal’s James Taranto is one of many who agree with Krauthammer. He wrote a devastating take-down of the rise of the news media’s so-called “fact checkers.”

"The usual conservative complaint about all this ‘fact checking’ is the same as the conservative complaint about the MSM’s product in general: that it is overwhelmingly biased toward the left.”

He concluded,“The form amplifies the bias. It gives journalists much freer rein to express their opinions by allowing them to pretend to be rendering authoritative judgments about the facts.”

http://www.mrc.org/node/41174

CNN has also discredited fact checkers as showing bias against conservatives, specifically Paul Ryan.
