Barack Obama, our next President

No. This is what the Demonbrats do best. They even take the Republicans signs out of their yards.

Hey Republicans! Have you heard that the Demonbrats will start a riot (war) if Obama don't get a second term?

You can put those signs in your yard, if you want, but that is awful to take signs from people's yards, but it is even more worse to threaten harm to someone if they don't vote this man back in office.

Moody's credit downgrade of Fiat: The Italian automaker, which owns Chrysler, is facing financial difficulties, even as President Obama is ballyhooing the "success" of the auto bailout.

<quoted text>so you're ok with women earning less than men as long as it's not by the ratio the president mentioned?
For computer programmers, for instance, women earn 95 cents for every dollar a man earns. For cashiers it’s 92 cents. For cooks and customer service representatives, it’s 95 cents. Other occupations have more unequal ratios. Women who are personal financial advisers, for instance, earn just 58 cents of what men in that job earn.
And if you are a woman working in the Obama administration the number is:

"When all White House employees are considered, the Obama administration's record dims a bit further. Female employees earn a median salary of $60,000, roughly 18 percent less than men, whose median salary is $71,000." From the Washington Times.

And this:

As stimulus-funded ($249 million-plus) A123 Systems sees its stock price drop back near its all-time low and waits for a Chinese rescue, two Republican senators want answers about whether taxpayer dollars are again funding jobs and technology that will be transferred overseas.

Iowa Sen. Charles Grassley, the ranking minority member on the Judiciary Committee, and South Dakota Sen. John Thune queried A123 CEO David Vieau about the logistics of a proposed sale to China-based Wanxiang Group Corp. In August, just as the company reported another $82.9 million in second-quarter losses, a deal was announced in which Wanxiang would deliver $75 million in initial loans and then would buy $200 million of senior secured convertible notes, followed by a possible $175 million “through the exercise of warrants it would receive in connection with the bridge loan and convertible notes.” If fully consummated, the end result could mean A123 ends up 80 percent Chinese.

You are without shame.
The U.S. Census Bureau wrote that in 2010, the female-to-male earnings ratio of full-time, year-round workers was 0.77."

But the Obama ad takes a solid statistic and describes it incorrectly. The campaign is wrong to say that the 77-cent figure describes the pay differences between men and women "doing the same work."

The 77-cent figure compares all male and female workers, regardless of their occupation.

http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/state...

In a reversal of traditional gender roles, young women now surpass young men in the importance they place on having a high-paying career or profession, according to survey findings from the Pew Research Center.

...a friendly reminder of another O'bama lie: about the fact Planned Parenthood doesn’t perform life saving mammograms as President Obama and Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards have claimed. During the presidential debate on Tuesday night in New York, Obama said,“When Gov. Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care; they rely on it for mammograms.”
The Department of Health and Human Services has also confirmed Planned Parenthood does not own any mammogram machines and therefore does not perform mammograms.
O'bama is a boob and knows even less about boobs.
Planned Parenthood does not perform mammograms? What will you f-ing wingnuz ocme up with next?
The sun, which we believed simply turned itself off at night, has been secretly rising in such places as North Korea and Iran while republicans weren't looking? Well, I for one think this redistribution of American sunshine has got to stop. That's our sunshine and we worked hard for it and the very idea that some people should get all they want for free is just another reason why Obama is the worst president ever.

Ok. Let's go over this again:

In 1999 Bill Clinton coerced Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to institute nationwide a subprime housing mortgage underwriting program.
This Democrat program created a mountain of what was called "toxic assets."
These individual bad mortgages were hidden inside traunches and sold by mother companies to "Special Purpose Vehicles" created by the mother companies in foreign countries, then the mother companies bought the bulk traunches back from their "Special Puropose Vehicles", replacing the individual bad loans on their books with a single traunch, making it impossible to investigate.
These traunches were given fraudulent AAA ratings and sold to municipalities throughout Europe to fund their pension plans and bond projects.
In 2003 the looming disaster was identified by the Director or OFHEO in a Congressional hearing, while the Democrats were negotiating for no effective oversight of their lunatic subprime housing loan program, in exchange the Democrats supported the invasion of Iraq.
In january, 2007, the Democrats took control of all oversight of the financial institutions that collapsed our economy after 2 years of Democrat oversight.
The Democrats' idiotic subprime loan program not only collapsed our economy, the Democrats collapsed municipal economies throughout Europe, putting enough strain on the national governments of Europe to cause the social collapse we're witnessing today because those governments are unable to fund their social programs and pay for the recovery of the economic crisis the Democrats' ludicrous subprime loan program caused them.
