Barack Obama, our next President

Its their fault if they get raped & now birth control is all the women's responsibility. I guess men can't wear condoms or get vasectomies or even use the male pill.
This is just a reflection of the view of women as second class citizens from Republicans.

WHY didn't Democrats ever pass a budget?

It is their constitutional duty to do so and yet they have managed to evade that responsibility ...
The Budget

Congress must also pass the federal budget. According to the Constitution, Congress must approve all government spending. In other words, Congress has the power of the purse. Many congressional activities are related to spending and generating revenue. The U.S. government runs on a fiscal year, a twelve-month period used for accounting purposes. Currently, the fiscal years starts on the first day of October, but Congress has the power to change the start date. Congress must pass a budget for every fiscal year.

Because the budget is so complex, the president and Congress begin work on it as much as eighteen months before the start of a fiscal year. The president submits a budget proposal to Congress every January for the upcoming fiscal year. Congress then acts on the proposal, usually granting much of what the president wants. To prevent a government shutdown, Congress must pass the budget by the end of the fiscal year ...

$5 Million to a charity of obama's choice if obama releases his sealed records... What is obama hiding?- Why is obama a selling out a charity?
The cost of an outsourced Barack Hussein Obama not releasing his hidden records and college transcripts are very clear. Therefore an usurper obama has calculated there are higher costs releasing any of his sealed records, destroying his career....

What's wrong with a photo ID? You need one to cash a check and to do a dozen everyday functions of American life. Why wouldn't someone be able to get a photo ID? Even if you don't drive, you can get a photo ID at driver's license office. Are you worried about someone who's nonambulatory or what?

We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Budget!

April 29 will mark three years since Senate Democrats passed a budget. This dereliction of duty flagrantly violates the 1974 Congressional Budget and Impoundment Control Act (Public Law 93-344, as amended).

“On or before April 15 of each year, the Congress shall complete action on a concurrent resolution on the budget for the fiscal year beginning on October 1 of such year,” this statute states. Senate Democrats could not care less about this federal law.

This is a milestone in human sloth. While it has taken majority “leader” Harry Reid (D., Nev.) and Senate Democrats 36 months to conceive zero budgets, House Republicans have delivered two — one for each year they governed.

Nonetheless, Reid said on February 3:“We do not need to bring a budget to the floor this year. It’s done. We don’t need to do it.”

Even if there were years he paid none, it was done legally, or the IRS would be after him. He wants to limit loopholes. You'd think you would be FOR that (that is, if you understand the concept).
You cannot blame anyone for taking any legal recourse to keep as much money that they earned as possible. And it's obvious he did nothing illegal or Obama would have found it and made an ad about it.
So....get real.
You people are just too stupid. Its not able the legality.

The returns will show the extent of Romney's tax dodging, overseas investments, years where did not pay any.

The silence I have received on these questions is deafening.

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.

Looks like the silence is continuing.

It's the same thing that's been happening since he took office.
And, lo, and behold, he doesn't have a clue what's printed inside of it, too. Just like everything else in government he's supposedly responsible for.

The biggest intelligence blunder in American history was virtually ignored by Republicans who now want us to crucify Obama for the events of Benghazi. Where was the Republican outrage over the faulty intel that sent thousands of American troops to their death and cost us billions of dollars searching for non-existant weapons of mass destruction in Iraq? Can you name right wing hypocrite that demanded an immediate investigation over that colossal Republican led disaster?

Why would you think adjectives like that have ANYTHING to do with the economy? Again, you pretend to miss a valid point while trying to confuse the issue.
It's the economy that is the most important aspect of this particular election, NOT some congressman's description of rape.
But go ahead, keep trying to point away from Obama's many failings over the past 4 years.
Because when Republicans get elected, they legislate abortion, not the economy.

What Happened in Benghazi
Though I am in no way a fan of President Obama’s foreign and security policies, the flailing that the Republican Party is engaging in at the moment to demonstrate some kind of cover-up in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack reveals a complete lack of understanding of how intelligence collection and analysis works. David Ignatius explores the subject in an op-ed,“CIA documents supported Susan Rice’s description of Benghazi attacks.”
Ignatius observes that intelligence is developed when something happens and that evidence is frequently “fragmentary and conflicting.” While there may be such a thing as incontrovertible facts relating to any incident, that solid information is something that frequently cannot be easily discerned. Ignatius notes that Republicans have been beating Obama over the head most recently with the assertion that there was a CIA Station Chief cable the day after the killing of the ambassador that indicated that the attack had been planned and organized by a militant group. But I would bet that there were at least 15 other reports that went out the same day that provided alternative scenarios. If you intercept a cell phone call in which someone is claiming credit for organizing an attack, is he speaking the truth or is he boasting and trying to take credit for some reason or other? If a source in a militia is claiming that he knows who ordered the attack, does he have an agenda that is driving his claim? All of that has to be sorted out, which takes time and cross checking. At the present time, it does appear that the “Innocence of Muslims” video did play a role in the attack and the contention that it was a fully-orchestrated al-Qaeda event seems unlikely.
I was in Rome Station when the U.S. Embassy in Tehran was occupied. The CIA went on full alert worldwide and we followed suit. I rather suspect that every Iranian official or businessman in Italy that we could get our hands on was interviewed three times. The reports went in to Washington, together with thousands of others. While the effort sounds silly in retrospect, I do recall that there were some Iranians in Rome who had significant information on the students who had led the takeover. My point is that intelligence is a complicated process and cherry picking raw intelligence reports relating to a developing situation might well produce whatever you want to find, but it will not necessarily reveal the truth.
