Barack Obama, our next President

There are very few aviation records being broken these days. Congratulations to Felix Baumgartner for breaking a big one.
That was some heart stopping moments watching this new record being made.
Meanwhile, an old rock star is going to have some sort of rally -who cares.
People you have lost the ability to know what is NEWS and if you weren't watching-you really did miss out on the moment.
And no tax dollars were used accomplishing this record-breaking scientific event. Just another way President Obama is saving taxpayer dollars.

McKinsey and Company. It was so damaging, the White House even responded to it. http://www.mckinsey.com/Features/US_employer_... (McKinsey & Company, Inc. is an American global management consulting firm that serves as an adviser to many businesses, governments and institutions and is widely recognized as the most prestigious consulting firm in the world.)
Sure Carol the McKinsey study that even employees of the firm said wasn't up to their usual standards. Who paid for the study Carol? McKinsey won't say but their clients include the giants in the energy and extraction industries, big financial and big healthcare concerns. This "study" is at complete odds with other studies done by Rand, the Urban Institute and the CBO. McKinsey itself admits;
"The survey was not intended as a predictive economic analysis of the impact of the Affordable Care Act. Rather, it captured the attitudes of employers and provided an understanding of the factors that could influence decision making related to employee health benefits.
As such, our survey results are not comparable to the healthcare research and analysis conducted by others such as the Congressional Budget Office, RAND and the Urban Institute. Each of those studies employed economic modeling, not opinion surveys, and focused on the impact of healthcare reform on individuals, not employer attitudes.
Comparing the McKinsey survey to economic estimates, such as the CBO’s, is comparing apples to oranges. While the McKinsey Quarterly article about the survey cited CBO estimates, any comparison is not apt. We understand how the language in the article could lead the reader to think the research was a prediction, but it is not. "
Your "study" amounts to nothing.

Romeny did not take a money as salary when he was governor of Mass. He returned the $135,000 salary back to the state. Obama wants to say tax the rich - he got a #12,500 tax return this year. Why don't he pay more taxes? Romeny will win in 2012!!!
Rmoney took millions in perks as Governor of Mass. while dropping the state to 47th in new job creation. He served one failed term before getting booted out.

At least the U-6 unemployment rate dropped 0.3 points from 15.0 in July to 14.7 in September.
Should we get out the champagne now or wait until later?
Hey stupid! The numbers in all of the categories are dropping. They'd drop even more if the GOP controlled House decided to stop blocking actual job creating legislation.

Wow, you are changing history:

The Obama administration was slow to ramp up its response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, then overreacted as public criticism turned the disaster into a political liability, the staff of a special commission investigating the disaster say in papers released Wednesday.

In four papers issued by the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling, commission investigators fault the administration for giving too much credence to initial estimates that just 1,000 barrels of oil a day were flowing from the ruptured BP BP -0.67% PLC well, and for later allowing political concerns to drive decisions such as how to deploy people and material—such as oil-containing boom—to contain the spreading oil.
As the spill dragged on into late May, the spill commission staff wrote, the administration appears to have misdirected resources in its efforts to counter the public view that its response was inadequate. By May 27, polls showed that 60% of respondents thought the government was doing a poor job of responding to the spill, the commission staff wrote.

obama and company had more important issues to attend to, vacations and such.

It's limping along at a snail's pace. Obama promised unemployment would be below 5% with his stimulus. It only dropped 0.3 points last month after being over 8% for 42 months. Things are going to get much, much worse when Obamacare kicks in. We're already witnessing the consequences now.
How can you ignore this? You seem pretty intelligent.
You're still spreading that lie? It wasn't a promise stupid; it was a projection based on the available data but updated information showed that the economy was in worse shape than originally thought. Most economists argued that the stimulus should have been larger but Obama got what he could get. Again you're totally ignoring the fact that the GOP has been blocking any kind of legislation that would put people to work and stimulate the economy.
Get off of you Obamacare rant nitwit. Romneycare has been the law in Massachusetts for six years and the economy in that state is doing better than the national average.

It was not the U.S. Government's responsibility to clean up the spill. It was BP's responsibility.

Pew Poll has them neck and neck at 46%. After tomorrow night's debate I predict President Obama will rise to well over 50%.

And so it goes wrote:
Global warming ended 16 years ago-
"The world stopped getting warmer almost 16 years ago, according to new data released last week.
The figures, which have triggered debate among climate scientists, reveal that from the beginning of 1997 until August 2012, there was no discernible rise in aggregate global temperatures.
This means that the ‘plateau’ or ‘pause’ in global warming has now lasted for about the same time as the previous period when temperatures rose, 1980 to 1996. Before that, temperatures had been stable or declining for about 40 years.
The new data, compiled from more than 3,000 measuring points on land and sea, was issued quietly on the internet, without any media fanfare, and, until today, it has not been reported."
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/articl...
Wow, it looks like global warming is a natural trend that occurs in cycles.
Then why are all the ice caps melting? Why is the world having record droughts? It's because of man's addiction to oil and coal, that's why. The world needs to find cleaner energy sources.
