Why does Obama hate white, working class Americans?
Proof?

Or just more racist lies?

Here is my proof:

GDP UP! YESTERDAY. GDP UP AGAIN.

your Bush/Cheney borrowed $5 trillion, doubled the national debt:

FOR RICH GUY TAX CUTS? EVEN MORE MONEY FOR ALREADY RICH PEOPLE?

RESULT: worst GDP in 80 years! Doubled the debt! Massive job losses, death of our young people, NOTHING GOOD ABOUT IT.

Obama: GDP UP! healthcare law, not hot air "plans" A LAW! UPHELD! ACA: LAW OF THE LAND.

STRONG EDUCATION.

STRONG HEALTHCARE.

STRONG PROGRAMS FOR OUR RETIRED.

STRONG PROGRAMS FOR POOR CHILDREN.

STRONG FAMILY FOCUS.

GDP UP!

AMERICA BETTER. VOTE FOR OBAMA.

I may be wrong but I don't think so. I'm sure somebody will correct me if I am. Isn't the new debt ceiling somewhere around $16.3 trillion? We are at $16.2 trillion plus,right? At $4 billion a day we will be there when? 3-4 months tops. Can you say 'another downgrade'? Will they kick the can again and raise the debt limit again? Or will the new president and congress finally fix the problem? I, for one, am not holding my breath.

You have it all backwards. His policies have not worked as he promised and he's still blaming everyone else. Just like you.
Liberals have a very difficult time looking inward and stepping up to the plate when they're wrong. Why is that?
What's Obama's plan for the next four years? Anyone know?
Anyone? Anyone?
You have written some good posts, and I agree with you on several points. His economic policies have us in better shape than Europe is in. Have you forgotten that all of the 2008 candidates were proposing stimulus packages? Have you also forgotten that the Executive branch is only 1 part of government?
You mistakenly think that because I'm not a Republican or Democrat cheerleader, willing to jump on a partisan blame game merry-go-round that I'm a liberal Obamaphile.
Neither dyed in the wool Republicans/Democrats conservatives/liberals concede when they are wrong, you know that. Maybe they believe that objectivity is a sign of weakness, but I'm typically seeing it far more from the arch-conservatives who consider everyone not far right-wing to be socialistic and anti-American.

Mr. Charles Woods went on to read the following statement, in honor of his son:
“I want to honor my son, Ty Woods, who responded to the cries for help and voluntarily sacrificed his life to protect the lives of other Americans. In the last few days it has become public knowledge that within minutes of the first bullet being fired the White House knew these heroes would be slaughtered if immediate air support was denied. Apparently, C-130s were ready to respond immediately. In less than an hour, the perimeters could have been secured and American lives could have been saved. After seven hours fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision. This has nothing to do with politics, this has to do with integrity and honor. My son was a true American hero. We need more heroes today. My son showed moral courage.
This is an opportunity for the person or persons who made the decision to sacrifice my son’s life to stand up.”

Top speed on a C 130 H is 368 mph__under an hour from Tripoli impossible__from Sigonella no way,

I can appreciate Mr Wood's loss but he really needs to avoid Beck-Larson et al because their rewrites are making him look foolish.

The strike force that did eventually arrive from Tripoli was stranded at the Benghazi airport because the Libyan transportation didn't show up. The Airport is about 12 or so miles from the consulate.

You have so much respect for the truth that you never use it.
Well, either you or the rest of the world interpretted his statements wrongly.

"Leon Panetta, the CIA director, has confirmed that controversial 'enhanced interrogation techniques' such as waterboarding yielded some of the intelligence information that ultimately led to Osama bin Laden."

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/al-...

WASHINGTON — Intelligence garnered from waterboarded detainees was used to track down al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden and kill him, CIA Chief Leon Panetta told NBC News on Tuesday.

http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/42880435/ns/tod...

"White House won't rule out that enhanced interrogation techniques helped lead to bin Laden."

I mean, really, Realtime, give it a rest.

Even MSNBC and CBS say you're wrong.
