Barack Obama, our next President

The Fantasy of a “Fiscal Cheney”

Mark Leibovich describes the idea (via Sullivan):

Ryan told me that he envisions a vice presidency in which he oversees a vast portfolio on fiscal and economic issues. He agreed fully with the suggestion — first mentioned to me by one of his advisers — that his assignment could be the fiscal version of the role Dick Cheney played on national security after Sept. 11.

I don’t doubt that this is what Ryan boosters have hoped for when he was selected. The hope that Ryan could decisively influence a Romney campaign and future administration is what seemed to be behind Ryanmania in the weeks before August 11. Ryan may think that this is what will happen, but I suspect that it won’t, or at least not in the way that is being described here. As I said two months ago:

The main problem with this is that Ryan will be very much Romney’s junior partner rather than acting as an eminence grise. It is more likely that Ryan would be wasted in the VP role, and within a year or two Ryan’s boosters would probably be writing wistful columns entitled “What Happened to Paul Ryan?” and “Where Did the Real Paul Ryan Go?”

We have already seen how Ryan has conformed himself to Romney’s campaign. Just as Ryan fell in line as a “team player” for the campaign, we should assume that he would do the same in a Romney administration. If Ryan received a portfolio to handle fiscal and economic policy matters, as he probably would, it is doubtful that he would be able to have such a huge influence on administration policy as Cheney did. Just as it has been in the campaign, the reason for having Ryan take the lead on fiscal matters in a Romney administration would be to create the impression that Romney takes fiscal responsibility seriously without having to be fiscally responsible. It is more likely that Ryan’s practical function would be to defend and justify administration fiscal policy to skeptical conservatives while serving as a lightning rod for criticism from the left.

Wishes and hopes are not truths. But then again, in your fuzzy reality you probably don't know the difference.

The only thing most Obama voters care about is that EBT card--As long as they are convinced that the Kenyan/simian is their perpetual tit, their votes are always pre-decided.

This doesn't work as the St Dept states they knew what was happening in real time and has a video of it to confirm. NO protestors.
The FBI recovered the closed circuit videos of the attack on the compound during the first week of October, well after the attack.

There were also some live time cellphone type videos/photos which were later provided to news agencies.

During the assault on the Consulate/CIA base in addition to the ambassador, three others perished.

Tyrone Woods, retired Navy, Seal qualified with multiple combat tours in the Middle East. It was first reported that he was an agricultural attache then a private security contractor employed by a British Co. Obviously he was neither.

Glen Doherty, a wildman, with 10 years in the Navy multiple Middle East combat tours and several years as a private security contractor in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen.

And Sean Smith, former Air Force and a ten year veteran of foreign service as an information management official. Smith was also known in online gambling circle as the legendary "vile rat."

There were at least twelve others with similar credentials evacuated from the annex/CIA base, it's unlikely that we'll ever learn their names.

http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxfacts/displ...
Since there are so many more poor & middle class, as a group their benefits were higher.

Now, lets look at it on the individual level.

How much did you gain in the Bush Tax cuts compared to what Mitt Romney got?

I guess you think being part of a group of 1000 that got to divvy up $1000.00 is the same as a group of 5 divvying up $500.00.

Now lets hear about those murders you dopes love to talk about.
as if you give a fk about black young men killing other black young men. its the ethnic clensing that the republican party secretly loves by keeping blacks poor and not offering the same oppurtunities for education, that even a fkn idiot like you almost achieved.
im sorry.

Clueless one--the democrats have controlled everything in Chicago for 80 years and the communists in state legislature for 35 years. Your teachers just got a huuuuuuuuge increase-so why was that? to not offer blacks an equal education? The problem stems from teaching the blacks down in Chicago, not elevating them up. Brizard was fired last week because he was elevated the black population. He had to go-too radical when the graduation rates are on the rise and more students are attending.

Best look to the democrats who caged up the blacks and did not allow them to assimilate. You had Robert Taylor, Valerie Jarrets' grandfather-he caged up all blacks in the city and so what do they do? they name them the Robert Taylor homes. Then you have Valerie Jarret's mother, Barbara T. Bowman who conducted psychological 'so called teaching' experiments on the blacks. Alinsky himself used Back of the Yards are an experiment of indoctrination for his start. If the democrats would have allowed black assimilation in the city of Chicago, you would not be a haven for crime. Start standing up for the blacks in your city instead of saying they are being ethnically cleansed by a political party that doesn't even exist. Stupid fool.

None of these supported protestors-all were in the compound. We all have seen the stomach turning cell phone photos of Stevens.

Again I repeat the St Dept testified that they had real time accounts of what was happening and compound video -there was no protest.

<quoted text>Frank Davis is dead. He died in Hawai'i- he was a communist. And William Ayers he will tell that he is the only one that openly admits he is a communist. Chicago is full of communists. The CPS teachers are for the one party of communism. Klonsky belonged to the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) and was best friends with friends William Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn who later became famous for their acts of terrorism. Klonsky (another devote communist) and Ayers teamed up on the so-called “small schools movement” to steer schoolchildren away from core academics to left-wing politicking on issues of “inequity, war, and violence.”
You just can’t make this stuff up.
They don't call themselves Communists much anymore, they are socialists. Ever heard of Social Justice? same crap=communist.
