Barack Obama, our next President

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."

Wow, it looks like global warming is a natural trend that occurs in cycles.
Another moronic global warming denier. The highest average yearly global temperatures since we started measuring have occurred since 1997.

The only thong that ended was the right whiners deciding to no longer believe in science.

But voter registration fraud is different. ACORN group submitted over 1.3 million voter registrations in 2008. More than a third were rejected and dozens of ACORN operatives were convicted. The non-partisan Pew Center on the States, in a recent study cited in USA Today, indicated that more than 24 million voter registration records in the US, about one in eight, are inaccurate, out-of-date, or duplicates. Some 2.8 million people are registered in two or more states, and 1.8 million registered voters are dead.

To suggest there isn't a problem is either uninformed, naive or dishonest.

Romney's "bounce" starting to resemble the bounce of a bowling ball in a sandbox.........

A new ABC/Washington Post poll is out, and it shows
Obama ahead nationally among likely voters 49%-46%.

That's not too surprising, but what is surprising is that the poll shows no post-debate surge for Romney. Obama was ahead by two points on September 29 and he's ahead by three points today.

More interesting is the chart below, showing that Obama outpolls Romney on every specific issue except for the deficit — which certainly attests to the power of brand management, since there's really no good reason to think that Romney would be any better at reducing the deficit than Obama. Quite the contrary, in fact: Romney has given us every reason to think that his real priorities are cutting taxes and raising defense spending. Aside from that, though, what I found most intriguing was the very strong belief that Obama would be better at handling an unexpected crisis. The "no-drama Obama" schtick might not work so well in a national debate, but in real life it sure seems to be a winner.

Here is the skinny liar.
Our fantastic Democratic President Clinton turned over a USA economy that was generating full employment, surplus and everything was great for everybody!
Now: if Bush had just sat there and "let it ride" this perfect economy would have generated $6 trillion in debt reduction! Even with wars would have generated $4 trillion!
But no.
Bush/Cheney had to have tax cuts for the richest!
So, surplus $6 trillion towards debt reduction was turned into $5 trillion of additional debt!
That is a $11 trillion swing in the wrong direction!
The biggest ripoff in history! The Republican projections of the economy never came true. Tax cuts have increased the debt. They borrowed to hand out millions to billionaires!
A chimp could have sat there and did better by doing nothing.
So?$11 trillion up in smoke! Still have millions without insurance? They solved nothing! But rich guys have more money.
Mitt Romney says: hey! That looks great! Let's do it again! Only this time ramp up those rich guy tax cuts 4 times more! Insane.
He will cut Medicare, social security, Medicaid, affordable care act, raise taxes on regular folks.......and ruin the country again.
WAKE UP DUMBFFFFFCK!
In the wake of a recession that began roughly seven weeks after President Bush took office, America experienced six years of uninterrupted economic growth and a record 52 straight months of job creation that produced more than 8 million new jobs. During the Bush presidency, the unemployment rate averaged 5.3 percent. We saw labor-productivity gains that averaged 2.5 percent annually — a rate that exceeds the averages of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. Real after-tax income per capita increased by more than 11 percent. And from 2000 to 2007, real GDP grew by more than 17 percent, a gain of nearly $2.1 trillion.

What to Make of Declining Democratic Registration?

Voter registration in the Buckeye State is down by 490,000 people from four years ago. Of that reduction, 44 percent is in Cleveland and surrounding Cuyahoga County, where Democrats outnumber Republicans more than two to one.…

Ohio is not alone. An August study by the left-leaning think tank Third Way showed that the Democratic voter registration decline in eight key swing states outnumbered the Republican decline by a 10-to-one ratio. In Florida, Democratic registration is down 4.9 percent, in Iowa down 9.5.

So what about that deal in Florida? And Colorado, Nevada, North Carolina and Virginia?

No point in you being limited. You're the guy who thinks that 10 cases of voter impersonation since 2000 are a big deal, so tell us what kind of big deal RNC hired vote fraud might end up being? Or would the outcome hinge on who's running the DOJ come January? Kind of like what happened in 2004.

You tell us what Barney said but you don't tell us how he put words into action.
Because you can't. But I can put Bush's actions to his words.
Last June, I issued a challenge to everyone involved in the housing industry to help increase the number of minority families to be home owners. And what I'm talking about, I'm talking about your bankers and your brokers and developers, as well as members of faith-based community and community programs. And the response to the home owners challenge has been very strong and very gratifying. Twenty-two public and private partners have signed up to help meet our national goal. Partners in the mortgage finance industry are encouraging homeownership by purchasing more loans made by banks to African Americans, Hispanics and other minorities.
Representatives of the real estate and homebuilding industries, through their nationwide networks or affiliates, are committed to broadening homeownership. They made the commitment to help meet the national goal we set.
Freddie Mae -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- I see the heads who are here; I want to thank you all for coming --(laughter)-- have committed to provide more money for lenders. They've committed to help meet the shortage of capital available for minority home buyers.
http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/ne...
You can live in the denial that is necessary from all who voted for Bush, but you can't wipe his words from the internet.
In case you weren't paying attention, here's what really happened in Congress with the obviously failed CRA and how the Democrat program collapsed our economy:
Here's the link to read the Democrats negotiating for no effective oversight of the Democrats' idiotic subprime housing mortgage underwriting program that collapsed our economy. In the article you also see the Director of OFHEO citing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for cooking the books to hide the massive CRA failures that were a known threat to our economy as early as 2003.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1222905743912 ...
Now, let's look at a time line. After the Republicans gave to the Democrats what they wanted, no effective oversight of the Democrat program that collapsed our economy, the Democrats supported the Iraq operation. That's when they were for the Iraq front before they were against it.
Barney Frank doing... how did you put it?
"...lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers."
Wow. What bullshit. Let's get a real Barney Frank quote on the subject:
Barney Frank - " I do think I do not want the same kind of focus on safety and soundness that we have in OCC [Office of the Comptroller of the Currency] and OTS [Office of Thrift Supervision]. I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation towards subsidized housing."
That kind of blows a hole through the keel of your bullshit, doesn't it?

"We" = Obama and Biden, since such requests are handled by the State Department. "Security" = Tripoli, since Benghazi was part of the request.

<quoted text>Wasn't it Graham who was recently wondering if there were enough cranky old white men to keep the republican party going? Well, once again, those crappy old white men try to use brave, young, dead men to advance their agenda. It would be nice if anyone who hasn't seen "Capitalism: A Love Story" weren't allowed to post anything economy related.
Lindsey Graham, despite his "moderate" assignation by complicit d-bags in the media, is a party line pro-Life, pro-wealth, pro-dereg, pro-tax cut, pro-no bid contracts for big donors...and when someone like Sen. Graham admits publicly that they are running out of "cranky old white guys"...maybe conservatives across the nation should stop and ask themselves if maybe they should try and add policy to their platform instead of sticking by the old platitudes and rhetoric aimed at making white guys cranky.

Tommy Thompson believes he's being hurt by Mitt...as do many other down ticket Rs who have never warmed to Mormon-guy. Mitt is a clusterfuck unto himself. He rarely misses an opportunity to expose himself as a political opportunist, elite douchbag, or callous businessman who is worried about him and his not We the People.

Sorry, Tommy Two-face...but Mitt and your state-mate Paul Ryan...aren't your problem. You are. Your message is. Your party is. Your party's message is the problem.

"It's about the economy (stoopid)"...Tommy et al want Americans to believe. Their answer to fix the economy? "Vote for us. Blame them."

Well, perhaps you can remind us what Biden's response was when Ryan pointed out the fact that the people the Democrats want to tax to pay for those same social programs that are bankrupting Europe don't have enough money even if Obama taxed them at 100 percent.
So, perhaps you can answer that for us.
Who are the Democrats going to get the money from to pay for the government they created?
... you actually have to identify the people Obama will tax to pay for the Democrats' programs to answer this post.
Biden couldn't answer that one.
According to Paul Ryan, we should make no effort to raise revenues or cut spending unless that one action will eliminate the national debt.

Look, the idiot Ryan basically said it is a waste to consider raising the rate on the wealthy because the billions of dollars it would bring in to lower the deficit was not worth it.

So why is killing Big Bird to save 400 million worth it?
