Barack Obama, our next President

Are you sure that the above is not happening now?
If a single mother need assistance with childcare, or other necessities of life she should get it, IF she is working/activally looking for work. She should not be entitled to it if she refusses a job that she is offered.

Are you really blind to the fact that there are people who live off of government assistance for generations and never hold a job?

Casey's opponent, Tom Smith, plays this ultra conservative right winger tea party guy. He's been a Republican for about a year.
One year.
Prior to that, he's been a Democrat.
Sounds like another Romney. A liberal pretending to be a conservative to dupe the voters.
Hi-Ya Da-Vey Putz,

Senator Zero must go ... Smith will do just fine. Is Casey really retarded? He appears to be so ... seems like blood ain't makin' it to his brain.

I get it,. You think Obama created this recession. How dumb are you?
Not so dumb to not know the facts:

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.

Kindly explain to us why would the financial institutions that caused the collapse gave so much bribe money to Obama, in the whole of Congress it was only Christopher Dodd that they gave more to.
To answer this, you have to explain why Obama was so important to the financial institutions that caused the collapse. After all, you know they weren't just giving that money to Obama for nothing.

Obama's words are "If four Americans get killed, itís not optimal." and we are supposed to believe that he was talking about the actions leading up to and after.
You will defend him no matter what he says/doesn't say/fails to say.

Barack Obama didn't stand a chance.
It wasn't even a fair fight.

The president was palpably better at Hofstra than he was at the University of Denver, but that pesky shadow -- his actual record in office -- continues to follow him onto the stage like a stalker.

He cannot get away from it.

Cicero couldn't.

It's the 1,000-pound anchor dragging down his candidacy.

As well as Obama did stylistically -- his Ivy League debate training showed itself on Tuesday -- substantively, he tanked. Obama found himself in the untenable position of defending a record that a majority of Americans believe to be subpar.

Almost 6 in 10 voters say the country is moving in the wrong direction, and the president, by the very nature of a re-election campaign, is forced to say "Let's keep doing things my way."

That's a nearly impossible task to get away with --even for a talented politician like Barack Obama.
I always tell my clients that taking down an incumbent requires an indictment of his or her record. If you cannot make the argument why the current officeholder should be removed, he or she won't be. Voters will always stick with the devil they know.

Mitt Romney was a prosecuting attorney Tuesday night, and he had an overwhelming trove of evidence with which to indict the president.

The most lethal weapon in his arsenal was Obama's own promises from 2008 and 2009. After an African-American audience member, who had voted for the president last time, suggested he was unsure of why he should support him again, the former

Massachusetts governor pounced:
President Obama promised to have unemployment at 5.4 percent today. It's at 7.8 percent -- a difference of 9 million fewer jobs.

The president said he'd cut the deficit in half. He doubled it instead;

He said he's cut the cost of health care $2,500 per family. It's gone up $2,500.

He promised immigration, Social Security and Medicare reforms. Where are they?

Gov. Romney was almost breathless at points, trying to work the ammunition at his disposal into his allotted time.

That's where the fight was unfair.

There were no knockout punches thrown Tuesday, but a lot of body blows from the challenger landed.

Romney also must have mentioned jobs, small businesses and the middle class two dozen times each -- which is exactly what he had to do. The president had a prettier performance, but Romney was methodical, and he continued the indictment of the incumbent that he began in Colorado.

The president, like Vice President Joe Biden before him, made one incredible blunder at Hofstra: He again fueled the controversial story line of Libya. No matter what this administration tries to do to put the Benghazi terrorist attack behind it, it seems to make it worse by the day.
It's become almost weird.

The president boldly claimed at the debate that on the Monday after the 9/11/12 attack, he called the action "terrorism" in a Rose Garden news conference. But it wasn't how he characterized the attack throughout the Rose Garden event -- no matter what debate moderator Candy Crowley said.

Instead, he noted only generally that "no acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation."

If, indeed, the president had believed the 9/11/12 attacks to be an orchestrated terrorist operation, why did the White House, the Pentagon, the UN Ambassador and campaign officials continue to suggest for two weeks that the attacks began with spontaneous demonstrations?

That now needs to be answered -- extending this news cycle at least several more days.

Americans can deal with an intelligence failure, but they won't tolerate a cover-up. Yet that is what this increasingly seems to be.

Barack Obama did a good job debating Tuesday night. But as the expression goes, one cannot put lipstick on a sow.

Here's our "little friend" again! Does he ever just STFU?

Republican Rep. Joe Walsh, running against Democratic challenger Tammy Duckworth in Illinois, told reporters Thursday night that there should be no abortion exception for the "life of the mother" because "with modern technology and science, you can't find one instance" in which a woman would actually die, according to a radio station. Walsh, of course, is flat wrong.

"There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing," Walsh continued. The comments were first reported by the Illinois radio station WGN.

The Volt is an OK product. I know people that have them & think they are great.
If we invested in R & D, you'd be running through the streets screaming how we spent money & didn't even produce a single car yet. And you know it.
I know hundreds of companies that have benefited in the green jobs initiatives that would likely be out of business today without it.
Hundreds. Family owned businesses.
name one....that benefited except by sucking up taxpayer money....

if GM could not produce the Volt for less than $40K, they should have gone back to the drawing board....

by the way, "OK product" is hardly a ringing endorsement.....

This coming from a person who voted for Bush who doubled the debt & left office with the worst recession in 80 years.

That recession etched these trillions in debt in stone. That recession lost over a trillion in revenues alone. It added hundreds of billions to unemployment, social services costs, meanwhile we still had two unfunded quagmire wars & unfunded medicare & government expansions carried over from the previous administration.

If you really don't like debt, then you need to ask yourself what happened that took us from a balanced budget in 2001 to this mess we have today.

It didn't happen under Obama.

You know, dem, that's soooo true. Even though "the wide stance" has fallen into disrepute of late, I still prefer it. I don't know why? I guess I'm a dinosaur? I have noticed that a lot of fighters are going back to it, so I don't feel quite so ancient anymore... it's just comfortable. They say back leg kicks are too slow and that the wider your stance the slower your kick but that doesn't seem to be true for me. I can still put my foot on the side of their face before they can do anything about it so why tamper with success?
