<quoted text>How is Trump offering $5 million to Obama's favorite charity promoting himself and making him money? He doesn't need to do either. You are hopeless if you think all that is wrong with the Obama presidency is that angry white males can't tolerate a racially diverse man in the White House.
White males voted Obama into the White House. Angry males say he has failed their expectations and the country can't afford four more years of failure, regardless of the presidents' race.
Q: How is Trump offering $5 million to Obama's favorite charity promoting himself and making him money?
A: The offer certainly got media attention, which is free publicity.

White males are increasingly a minority in the U.S., which I believe to be the cause of their anger (as in how dare one of “us” not be in charge?). While “failed presidency” is the fundamental extremist GOP talking point, it is a pure propaganda campaign. Saying so repeatedly makes a lot of people, perhaps so inclined for other reasons, to want to fire Obama even though he has turned the economy around and his rival wants to return to policies that created the bad economy.

If you are a college student I would expect you to have an inquiring mind and not fall victim to empty rhetoric or propaganda campaigns. Many college students find libertarian political philosophy attractive for idealistic reasons, which I can understand better even though its economic philosophy is extremely conservative. That, plus legal pot can seem pretty attractive. The problem is floating grandma out on an iceberg whe she gets too old to fend for herself.

On the day before an election that's supposed to hinge on jobs, taxes and the middle class, Bain Capital, the company Mitt Romney founded, will close the doors of a factory in Freeport, Illinois, and ship 170 good, high-tech jobs to China.
The employees of Sensata Technologies were forced to train their Chinese replacements, and the American flag that long flew over the factory was reportedly removed while the Chinese engineers were visiting the site. A group of workers have set up camp across from the factory -- calling it “Bainport”-- and some supporters have tried to block the trucks hauling equipment out of the plant. According to Dave Johnson, there have been several arrests. ...
How much did Mitt make on closing this American factory and sending it to China?
$701,000.00 Tax Free.
He placed the $701,000.00 in a Trust Fund prior to taxes.
You Repubs just don't get it. Mitt and his kind are hurting America each day.
How does the Repub Senate help?:
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.
Frick all you America hating Repubs. Go to China.
it's better than that...sensata is a front company owned by bain...bain bought sensata which then the business from honeywell, even though the company was making a very comfortable profit, it wasn't enough for the vultures.

but these f*cktards are just fine with that

SHEEPLE, can you give us just one good reason why Obama should be re-elected?
Tell us, what has Obama done that has made your life better?
I told you SHEEPLE that Obama's election would increase the cost of living for every American, while simultaneously lowering the standard of living for every American.
This is exactly what has happened, and it is the best reason for voting for Romney.
You must feel really bad for backing a complete and utter failure based only on his skin color, huh?
if obama accomplished nothing else in his first term, just making you and your retarded brethren cry like little girls is more than enough.

EDITORIAL: Stop believing in Obama
The last four years have been a disaster, another four won’t be any better

Barack Obama’s closing argument for his re-election requires a declaration of faith.“I believe in you,” he told a crowd of supporters Wednesday.“I need you to keep believing in me.”

Regrettably, four years of failure leave precious little to believe in.

This is bizarre and ironic, yet funny...

George W. Bush:

"I know what I believe. I will continue to articulate what I believe and what I believe I believe, what I believe is right."

Mitt Romney:

"I believe in an America where millions of Americans believe in an America that's the America millions of Americans believe in. That's the America I love."
