Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

But, what if support for Obama's reelection -- even where he may be the most popular -- is diminished from his original 2008 numbers? What if Obama wins these three states by only one million votes -- each -- a margin of 1 million popular votes in each state? He still gets all 104 electoral votes, yet he's "lost" more than three million popular votes. That's almost 5 percent of his entire 2008 national total. How would that loss appear in national polls matched against Romney? Devastating, no doubt. But would it change anything?
Of course not. The winner of California, New York and Illinois gets 104 electoral votes even if their winning margin is only one vote in each state. Thus, Obama could drop four, five, even six million popular votes from his 2008 totals and not suffer the loss of a single vote in the Electoral College. Romney might gain millions of popular votes McCain failed to get without adding even one more electoral vote

Why is Obama losing?
First he is not losing.
1. Repubs- Obama has done nothing. Dems- 40 straight months of job growth.
2. Repubs- Obama has stopped oil drilling. Dems- Highest US oil production since 2003.
3. Repubs- Obama is why gas is so high. Dems- More US oil is being EXPORTED than anytime since 1949.
4. Repubs- To correct problems we must lower taxes on the rich. Dems- History has proven what happens when you lower taxes on the rich.
5.Repubs- Obama has hurt small business. Dems- Obama has passed 17 tax breaks for small business.
6. Obama has high unemployment. Dems- Before Obama took office the US was losing 726,000 jobs per month average for over 3 months in a row.

Wait a minute....
It is impossible to compromise when they're not even being allowed to participate in the discussion.
And, it seems that there were Democrats that were reluctant to compromise, too, i.e. the "Louisiana Purchase" and the "Cornhusker Kickback".
The Democrats pretended that there was no other faction in the nation.
I do believe that fact of history of the United States is irrefutable.

In Wisconsin, Walker derangement syndrome continues to metastasize. An openly gay Republican volunteer was sent to the hospital by a deranged Leftist who labeled him a "traitor."
In a separate incident the son of a Wisconsin Republican State Senator was badly beaten when he attempted to stop vandals from stealing his Romney/Ryan yard sign.
Lake County Florida veteran's Mitt Romney signs, flags torched in yard.
In Virginia, a Romney supporter watched in horror as an unidentified perpetrator literally torched her yard sign.

An openly gay republican? Yeah right. Sign stealing is nothing new and is mostly done be republicans. It happened to me every election, I just don't do it anymore, too many sick people around, same with car signs, mental cases with pickup trucks try to run cars with Obama signs off the road or vandalize cars in parking lots.
Perhaps signs should be eliminated, they're just litter and an eyesore. Think of all the good things that could be done with that money rather than creating more waste for a landfill.
Signs don't vote.

Here we have a Democrat saying it was Bush's Energy Policy Act of 2005 that is responsible for the increased oil and gas production Obama is claiming he did:

If the U.S. government succeeds in raising taxes on major and independent oil companies, it would not reduce drilling activity, but make U.S. energy companies less competitive against major oil companies overseas, particularly national oil companies, such as Petrobras whom Obama gave 2 billion dollars to, and George Soros gave a billion to.

Allowing U.S. companies to write off the cost of research done before drilling has enabled companies to drill fewer, but more accurate wells. The loss of the intangible drilling cost tax provision would be the most single damaging impact for the industry.

Reforming the U.S. tax code is a top priority for legislators in the upcoming session. The current U.S. tax code is a drag on the U.S. economy, forcing companies to make business decisions based on the tax code, not on a project's fundamentals.

The Energy Policy Act of 2005 helped make the energy renaissance seen in the United States possible, said U.S. House of Representative member Gene Green (DEMOCRAT). The legislation included a number of new tax incentives and loan guarantees for energy production, including incentives for producers to drill in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, subsidies for wind and renewable energy producers and loans for technologies that avoid greenhouse gases, including clean coal. It also allowed producers to write off research costs ahead of drilling.

That bill expanded new technology development not only for oil and gas, but for nuclear power as well. If not for the Fukushima incident in Japan, the South Texas nuclear power plant would have been expanded, said Green, who worked on passing the legislation.

Overall, the United States benefited from the bill, although it did lead to the disastrous investment in solar energy company Solyndra, Green noted
And so it goes

&#8206;"I wish my moderate Republican friends would simply be honest. They all say theyíre voting for Romney because of his economic policies (tenuous and ill-formed as they are), and that they disagree with him on gay rights. Fine. Then look me in the eye, speak with a level clear voice, and say,'My taxes and take-home pay mean more than your fundamental civil rights, the sanctity of your marriage, your right to visit an ailing spouse in the hospital, your dignity as a citizen of this country, your healthcare, your right to inherit, the mental welfare and emotional well-being of your youth, and your very personhood.'

"Itís like voting for George Wallace during the Civil Rights movements, and apologizing for his racism. Youíre still complicit. Youíre still perpetuating anti-gay legislation and cultural homophobia. You donít get to walk away clean, because you say you 'disagree' with your candidate on these issues."

Wall St. is what collapsed the entire world economy in 2008. You have Romnesia. Wall St. are the ones that made billions in profit as the US lost 726,000 jobs per month because of them.

LOL. So if Obama does win, is going to blame himself for four more miserable years.
I know how you revisionists think that history is some nonexistent thing, but this economic crisis will belong to George W Bush & the Republicans regardless how much you try to rewrite history.

How it will treat Obama's response is not yet known.

But this event is all Republican.

You know, the exact same people you want to put in charge again.

Boehner, McConnell, Cantor , Ryan were all there voting yes yes yes.

The only one who ever apologized was Eric Cantor.

When is Paul Ryan going to go on his apology tour??
