Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

Obama White House pays women less than men, records show

Female employees in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male colleagues, records show.
According to the 2011 annual report on White House staff, female employees earned a median annual salary of $60,000, which was about 18 percent less than the median salary for male employees ($71,000).
Calculating the median salary for each gender required some assumptions to be made based on the employee names. When unclear, every effort was taken to determine the appropriate gender.
The Obama campaign on Wednesday lashed out at presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney for his failure to immediately endorse the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Restoration Act, a controversial law enacted in 2009 that made it easier to file discrimination lawsuits."
Its equal pay for equal work on an individual basis.

There is nothing that says the average pay of men & the average pay of men need to be equal.

If I have two sales men & two Sales women making $60K and a receptionist making 30K, Jeffy would claim that I am discriminating against women.

Nice try Jeffy. Next time get better informed.

Not true. When Romney left office as Governor, MA had the pleasure of ranking number one!! Number one in state debt.
Romney can't do what he did as Governor as President to balance the budget.
As Gov, Romney drastically increased revenues in Massachusetts. But he has signed a pledge to the lobbyist Norquist that he won't raise taxes.
He said he balanced the Olympic budget. He did it by contacting every department of the federal govern,et begging for money. The federal government bailed our the Olympics, not Romney.
Really, number one in debt, number 47 in job creation - this is the Tea Party's candidate?
Really?

We have a graduated income tax. We all pay from the same chart. I already have some of my income taxed at a higher rate than most people.
I don't constantly whine about it like you.
You are the typical right whiner, My God we can't tax the wealthy more but we need to tax the poor & lower middle class more.
But hey. lets dump the IRS because we all know everyone will just send in the correct tax money. No one would ever cheat.
Perhaps you can convince the 47 percent of the country that don't pay income taxes to follow your example.

Still can't remember what happened on 9/11/2001 I see. Maybe some ginkgo will help.
BTW, the Trillion dollar deficit was in a large part due to TARP, which Obama not only voted for but spoke on the senate floor in support of.

As clearly one who gets his info from Faux, Romney showed once and for all that he has no business in the White House unless he's with a tour group and well supervised.
Did you use your best Honey Boo Boo voice?

You are wrong, ya know. Here's why:

"Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justification to this type of senseless violence. None. The world must stand together to unequivocally reject these brutal acts."

This refers to the video. Obama referred to terrerorism in a general sense, but did not call the attack itself an act of terrorism. There IS a difference.

Aurora victim wanted to hear more about guns

9:49AM EDT October 17. 2012 - President Obama and Mitt Romney discussed gun violence during Tuesday's town hall debate, but it wasn't enough for one victim of the mass shooting inside a Colorado movie theater.

Stephen Barton said he was happy for the question from Nina Gonzalez, who asked Obama what he plans to do to limit the availability of assault weapons. Barton, who was wounded in the face and neck inside the Aurora theater on July 20, starred in a TV ad beseeching the candidates to explain what they would do to curb gun violence.

"But sadly, there were no real answers," he said in a statement sent by Mayors Against Illegal Guns, the group that paid for the "demand a plan" ad that aired before the first debate in Denver.

"We are going to keep demanding a specific plan from both candidates to end gun violence," Barton said.

Obama and Romney said Tuesday they both want to make sure existing gun laws are enforced.

While Obama said he is seeking a "comprehensive strategy" to reduce gun violence, he did say he would like to see a ban on assault weapons reintroduced in Congress. The federal assault weapons ban expired in 2004 and the partisan divide in Congress has made it difficult to bring up any new legislation.

Fact checkers noted that Romney was wrong when he said that it is "already illegal in the country to have automatic weapons." The Los Angeles Times reports "fully automatic weapons -- guns that fire continuously when the trigger is held down -- are legal to possess in the United States but are tightly regulated."

Mayors Against Illegal Guns is co-chaired by New York's Michael Bloomberg and Boston's Thomas Menino.

Romney has no foreign policy experience, and tonight everyone clearly saw that. He is superficially conversant with foreign policy issues, but hasn’t taken the time to learn enough about them to speak about them effectively or persuasively. Romney’s bad judgment and his lack of preparation on this front were on display, and it has probably become clear to a much wider audience that Romney lacks important qualifications for the Presidency.
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/lariso...
It's a difficult thing to do, to call the President of the United States a liar when the entire world is watching. Something the Democrats haven't figured out yet, the whole world is watching. Like when the entire world saw Obama repeat the obvious lie about the demonstration that the entire world knew never happened got out of control and cause the attack that the whole world knew was Al Qaeda.
Yet, the whole world saw the President of the United States mindlessly regurgitate some obvious lie for two weeks.
What happens is, the whole world wonders if the entire population of the United States is stupid enough to believe the President when he repeats a lie the whole world can detect.
Yup, we're really impressing the world with Obama in office. Like when the whole world was impressed when Al Qaeda sacked four of our embassies and raised their flag on the grounds of four US embassies to proclaim to the world that this is how weak the United States actually is. Their flag flying on our flag pole with the embassies burning in the background is a good indication of how Obama's foreign policy is doing.

Only five more days.

Will Obama continue to own Romney?

What will Romney say he believes about military intervention in the Middle East?
