Barack Obama, our next President

The purpose of a budget is to set guidelines on spending & compare it to revenues. That is it.
It is not some magical entity that balances budgets.
I've been on Hospital board where every monthly meeting sat through the finance guy going department by department saying how x-ray was over budget because they did more x-rays than budgeted. Spent more took in more.
The State of Massachusetts was ranked number one in debt under Mitt Romney. Look up the numbers yourself. I mean certainly you have them, right? Or are you just talking out your butt again.
Romney did not improve the employment situation. Over his tenure, MA lost 40,000 jobs.
And really, you don't know Romney signed the Norquist pledge? Then STFU until you find out. How can you be for a candidate & be so uninformed.
If Romney had signed & kept that pledge prior to being governor, he never would have come close to balancing any budget. Romney Closed loopholes ( A norquist tax increase) & Increased Fees ( A norquist ta increase).
As President, Romney can not close a loophole to increase revenues unless he cuts revenues someplace else.
Romney was 47th in Job creation every year he was Gov.
So, What good is Romney's "solutions" he brags about in MA,when he can't employ them as President.
If you don't have a budget, you don't have a plan.... or a plan you want the American people to know about.
We haven't had a budget since Obama took office.

Give us the number for the debt of Mass before and after Romney. You obviously don't have the numbers and don't know what you're talking about. Talk about someone talking through their ass.... You talk, but you don't say anything.

I do recall while Mitt Romney was governor, my brother-in-law had to go to Boston to work construction because there wasn't enough people there to do the work that needed to be done. That just doesn't fit with what you claim.

What's wrong with not raising taxes?
.... well??????

So, what you're saying is, Romney balanced revenue with expenditure, right?
Isn't that the way government should be run?

What does closing a loophole have to do with cutting revenue? You're reaching here. Just babble there.

So, you're saying we don't even have any guidelines for spending and comparing that to revenue, right? Wouldn't you call that disfunctional?
Please tell us why we haven't even had a budget since Obama took office.
Please tell us why Obama submitted only 2 budgets to Congress in the 4 years he was supposed to submit a budget.
Please tell us why the sum total of Obama's only two budget proposals in the four years he's been golfing around the White House got a sum total of ZERO votes in Congress.

And, kindly explain to us how the government will be able to control spending if it is so disfunctional it can't even generate a budget when the president has a super majority in the Senate and a dominant majority in the House.

And you're trying to convince the country we need four more years of that....

Uninformed. How are you so uninformed?
Democrats did not get a super majority until July of 2009 when Al Franken was sworn in.
They lost it August when Ted Kennedy dies.
They got it back in late September when Paul Kirk was sworn on.
They then lost it when Scott Brown was sworn in Feb 4th, 2010.
So Democrats held a super majority for 6 months, not 2 GD years.
You really need to get better informed because you keep making a jackass out yourself every GD day.
How many house Democrats have voted "For" an Obama budget in the past 3 years?

Answer 0. Not even his own party backs his vision for the future.

No record to run on and no future to speak of, so all that's left is to falsely slander his opponent.

By the way, Obama's crowing about the Lilly Ledbetter Act is just another of a long list of liberal ruses.

On his first day in office, President Obama signed the Lilly Ledbetter Act. The administration coined it the “Equal Pay for Equal Work” bill.

However, the law does not give fair pay for equal work, but rather extends the period of time that women are able to file a claim of wage discrimination. With each new paycheck, the six-month time frame for filing a lawsuit resets.

The Republican members opposed the bill primarily because of how it affects employers — and therefore job creation — and on the belief that, as a result of the new legislation, gender discrimination — and hence, not hiring — in the workplace would likely increase because employers would fear lawsuits from female workers.

The Obama Administration cites that full-time working American women earn 77 cents for every dollar a man earns and claim this is the ‘wage gap.’

HOWEVER...the statistic does not account for the number of hours per week women and men
work on average. To a considerable degree, the ‘gender wage gap’ is more a ‘gender hours gap.’

Men are more likely to work more hours while women are more likely to work less than 35 hours per week. In 2009, 66.6 percent of American workers working less than 35-hour workweeks were women.

The wage gap depends on the labor-force participation rate by women, which is a function of a number of variables, both personal and societal.

The Lilly Ledbetter Act provides a forum to air grievances that may or may not be related to wage differentials. However, it obscures the fact that differentials are due to choices.

As a piece of social legislation designed to improve women’s wages in comparison to men, THE LILLY LEDBETTER ACT IS MORE LIKELY TO RESULT IN FEWER EMPLOYED FEMALES because firms fear potential litigation, adverse publicity from such cases, and the amount of resources they would have to devote to defending themselves against such claims.

There's your liberal agenda at work again - causing more problems than solutions.

Looks like Republicans were on the right side of the issue - as usual.

Romney - "Mr. President, have you looked at your pension?"

Obama - ""You know, I haven't looked at my pension."

WTF? And he wants 4 more years? Who doesn't look at their pension?

I know! I know the answer! Call on me, teacher!

... past 4 years. This year counts, too.))))

ZERO. That's NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH.

Every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is nutcase. He gets 99 percent of the black vote, and he can't get even one single solitary vote from the Congressional Black Caucus for either of the only 2 budgets he's submitted in 4 years.

Why do the Democrats put Obama on the ballot when every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is a nutcase?

Anyone surprised by this?

"Michelle Obama Broke Agreed Upon Rules

At the second presidential debate on Tuesday night, a camera caught first lady Michelle Obama clapping after moderator Candy Crowley told Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney that President Obama called the Benghazi attack an "act of terror" soon after the attack on the U.S. consulate.

Nearly all of the audible applause came from those sitting away from the actual debate, but when FOX News' camera shot moved to a bird's-eye view it became apparent that the only applause from the participating debate audience came from first lady Michelle Obama. Mitt Romney's wife Ann was also sitting with the debate participants.

According to the rules both campaigns agreed to, or the memorandum of understanding (MOA), there is to be no clapping from members of the debate audience."
