Barack Obama, our next President

The appearance, mostly in Cleveland's predominantly black neighborhoods, of billboards warning against voter fraud is constitutionally protected speech.
It is also insulting, demeaning, belittling speech—coming from people who choose to remain anonymous—and a despicable election tactic.
The billboards, posted here and in Cincinnati and Milwaukee by what has been identified only as a private family foundation, insinuate that the neighborhoods in which they are found are hotbeds of voter fraud, which, of course, they are not.

It's already been established - it's a fact - that voter fraud exists and that one fraudulent vote can influence an election.

So....WTH we doing in Libya??????????aside from violating war powers acts and aiding and abetting failed statehood terrorism?)

Donley’s best estimate, given to reporters at a breakfast meeting on Tuesday, was that the war has cost the Air Force about $75 million so far, with expenses running to $4 million a day. That was the bill when 89 U.S. planes were directly or indirectly involved in the combat mission. Now he expects it to drop, but to what, he didn’t say.

By contrast, Defense Secretary Robert Gates told Congress last week that without a U.S. combat role in the Libya war, he expects the bill to run to $40 million per month. That doesn’t exactly match the Air Force’s tally. By Donley’s figures, if the Air Force slashed its costs for the war in half, it would still exceed Gates’ totals — and that’s not counting the Navy’s contribution.

None of this confusion should come as a surprise. The Libya war was launched on the fly and its goals are uncertain. No wonder the war bill is written with an Etch-a-Sketch.

How much is spent on campaign ads? Everyday piles of full color 8x10 double sided ads arrive to go in the trash, and we know they don't come cheap. Who is influenced by tv ads anyway?

I know I've explained this to you before, but I'll do it one more time. You know, no child left behind.
In case you're like Obama and have never read the Constitution, this is an important point to understand when you discuss the debt and deficit:
Congress has full control of all the purse strings of the US government. The president cannot invent programs to spend on. Only Congress can do that. Only Congress can determine how much to spend on each of the programs only Congress can authorize.
Now, let's review some recent American history:
The Republicans turned over to the Democrats all the purse strings of the US government in January, 2007, with a declining 0.16 (that's zero point one six) trillion dollar deficit. The Democrats have increased that deficit ONE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED PERCENT to 2.4 trillion dollars.
The Republicans turned over to the Democrats a total public debt of 5 trillion dollars in January, 2007. The Democrats have more than tripled that debt which is 16 trillion dollars today.
Now, if you repeat the same ignorant stuff you've been regurgitating here, we can accurately describe you as a liar.
And, 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.
And, another time line is very telling.
The Democrats took full control of all oversight of the Democrats' idiotic subpriime housing loan program in January, 2007. After less than 2 years of Democrat oversight of that program, it collapsed our economy.
Now, where am I wrong?
Wrong. Wanna tell us why Bush didn't want rein in F&F?

Bush: The Administration strongly believes that the housing GSEs should be focused on their core housing mission, particularly with respect to low-income Americans and first-time homebuyers. Instead, provisions of H.R. 1461 that expand mortgage purchasing authority would lessen the housing GSEs' commitment to low-income homebuyers.

http://www.presidency.ucsb.edu/ws/index.php...

That bill was the one where Mike Oxely said the WH gave Congress a one finger salute.

FYI....the co-sponser of that bill was Barney Frank. Who I'm pretty sure is a Democrat.

BTW..."Congress has full control of all the purse strings of the US government."

Nice to see the acknowledgement that Obama doesn't set the budget.

Liberal Media Bias
Question everything you hear, read or see from ABC/CBS/NBC/CNN/NYT/WAPO/LAT.
(1) Neil King is a political reporter for the Wall Street Journal. He is married to Shailagh Murray who left a reporting job at the Washington Post to take the job of Joe Biden’s communications director. She replaced Jay Carney who moved to the White House and who himself left Time to take the communications director role for Biden.
(2) John Harris of the Politico is married to an abortion rights activist who used to run NARAL Virginia.
(3) The Politico’s Chief Washington Correspondent, Jonathan Allen, left the Politico to work for Debbie Wasserman Schultz, then returned to the Politico.
(4) Andy Barr of the Politico left the Politico to work for the Democratic National Committee and now works for Richard Carmona, the Democrats’ candidate for Senate in Arizona against Jeff Flake.
(5) George Stephanopolous of ABC News used to be a strategist for Bill Clinton and even after becoming Chief Washington Correspondent still engaged in regular conversations with Rahm Emanuel, James Carville, and Paul Begala from the Clinton days.(Ironic, isn’t it, that John Harris wrote that story)
(6) Michael Scherer of Time, where Jay Carney left to go to Joe Biden’s office, got his start in left wing publications, as did Ezra Klein of the Washington Post who famously created the left wing Journolist filled with Washington journalists and pundits to bounce around themes in the left wing echo chamber.
(7) Linda Douglass of ABC News left ABC to serve as Chief Propaganda Officer for the Obama White House in charge of getting Obamacare through.
(8) Andrew Rosenthal of the New York Times made up the story about President George H. W. Bush being surprised and taken aback by a common supermarket check out scanner. The story was made up by Rosenthal who was not even present. Andrew Rosenthal is now the Editor of the New York Times Editorial Page.
(9) The BuzzFeed crew are mostly left of center, hang out with left of center reporters and pundits, and the media considers them and their cat GIFs the second coming of a supposedly objective Huffington Post.
(10) Chuck Todd of NBC is married to a former DNC staffer and he worked as a Democratic staffer to Senator Tom Harkin. He works with Chris Matthews who worked for a Democrat in Congress and Jimmy Carter. They both work with Andrea Mitchell who is married to Alan Greenspan, the former Chairman of the Federal Reserve. And they’re all just a degree or two removed from Tawana Brawley thanks to their relationship with MSNBC host Al Sharpton.
thank you for giving substantiave backup to the msm media bias that is easily obvious. I'm guessing the Obamabot who attached a funny icon to your post, has the same manic laugh as Biden. maybe it was Biden.

hollywierd is beginning to have second thoughts about The One:
Tinseltown is turning on Bam

Look out. Hollywood is having a Republican crisis.

Once America’s most dependable bastion of liberal blather, the land of make believe has gone rogue. Each week, the new movie season brings another defection to Camp Romney, a place where taxes are less punishing, foreign policy is reliably pro-Israel, & stupid movies like “Innocence of Muslims’’ are not blamed for costing American lives.

It’s the terrorists, stupid.

You can see this sea change in the new Ben Affleck-directed movie,“Argo.” Once an ardent Obama-phile, the disaffected Hollywood hunk has chosen this election season to take on flaccid Democratic ex-President Jimmy Carter with a terrific and damning (to the government) new film about the 1979-81 Iranian hostage crisis. It seems no accident that the film brilliantly foretells today’s bloody events in the Middle East.

The land that once loved Obama is not stupid when it comes to selling tickets. The unexpected hit of the summer was Dinesh D’Souza’s documentary,“2016: Obama’s America.’’ The stinging big-screen indictment of Obama’s socialist leanings and disloyalty to the state of Israel was — surprise!— produced by the Oscar winner behind “Schindler’s List,”“Rain Man” and “Jurassic Park,” Gerald Molen.

“All of my movies have been about telling the truth,” Molen, a rare Hollywood Republican — who knew?— told The Hollywood Reporter.

Even hard-left filmmaker Michael Moore has grown weary of a commander-in-chief who doesn’t appear up to the job. After Obama’s disastrous performance in the debate against Mitt Romney, Moore tweeted,“If Romney keeps this up ... Obama is going to vote for him!”

“Argo,” with its early Oscar buzz, stellar cast and formerly reliably liberal director in Affleck, may present the most chilling depiction of our enemies since “The Manchurian Candidate.’’

The flick’s backdrop is the snatching of 52 American hostages by Iranians at the US Embassy in Tehran in 1979. The hostage crisis carried on for months, as an impotent Carter couldn’t do anything right.

“Carter’s s--tting enough bricks to build a pyramid,’’ remarks a CIA superior Jack O’Connell (Bryan Cranston).

The CIA, meanwhile, hatches a plot to extract 6 Americans who’ve escaped the embassy & are holed up at the Canadian ambassador’s house. In a real-life drama that was kept secret until the Clinton administration, CIA operative Tony Mendez (Affleck) rescues the 6 Americans after 87 days, convincing the Iranians that the Americans are really part of a Canadian film crew.

The remaining 52 hostages finally came home after a mind-boggling 444 days in captivity. By then, fed-up voters replaced Carter with Republican President Ronald Reagan.

Affleck, no big fan of Romney, has soured on Obama.“I voted for Obama last time, although he got to be all things to all people then,” he said while promoting his film.“And now, he’s got a record, which makes it really different ... I obviously have more complicated feelings.”

“Argo” evokes another complicated recent Middle East crisis: the murders of American Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and 3 colleagues. 5 days after the event, UN Ambassador Susan Rice hit the talk shows, insisting that Stevens’ killing resulted from a “spontaneous” protest rally against “Innocence of Muslims,” a schlocky film seen as insulting to the prophet Mohammed.

The Obama administration wanted to blame the deaths on something out of its control but has since backed off the claim, looking as weak as Jimmy Carter at his most impotent.

In 2012, the Hollywood brain trust knows that images of American strength sell better than those of self-flagellation.

There is hope.
