What in the stimulus grew the size of government & was oppressive.
He would BORROW money. Not worry about the debt. Spend money on infrastructure, offer tax breaks.
Be honest for a change.
What infrastructure did we get from Porkulus?

To put it into perspective, the entire war in Iraq cost was 804 billion dollars from the beginning in 2003 to the end of 2010.
Compare that to the one-time 860 billion dollar money grab by the Democrat cronies that we didn't get anything for.
So, tell us about all the infrastructure that was built/repaired with those shovel-ready jobs funded by Porkulus.
Where'd the money go?
What did we get for it?

And you want more?

Obama JUST HAPPENED to visit Kenya in 2006 to support his cousin, Raila Odinga, a Muslim socialist candidate for president, who JUST HAPPENED to have ties to both al-Qaeda and Libya’s Muammar Qaddafi, and who JUST HAPPENED to have been educated in communist East Germany, and who JUST HAPPENED to name his son Fidel, and who JUST HAPPENED to plan on establishing Shari’ah Muslim law in Kenya, and whose activities prompted the Kenyan government to lodge an official protest of Obama’s passport abuse and misconduct, and Obama’s actions JUST HAPPENED to have been denounced by the U.S. State Department as being in direct opposition to U.S. National Security, and after Odinga, for whom Obama JUST HAPPENED to have raised $950,000, lost the election, his Muslim followers JUST HAPPENED to burn Christian women and children alive in a church where they had sought refuge.

In 2006 Obama endorsed Alexi Giannoulias in his race for Illinois State Treasurer and stated that he is “…one of the most outstanding young men I could ever hope to meet”—even though Giannoulias JUST HAPPENED to be only 29 years old and even though his family’s Broadway Bank JUST HAPPENED to finance Chicago crime figures like Michael “Jaws” Giorango, a Chicago thug with convictions for bookmaking and promoting prostitution, and even though virtually all of Chicago’s Democrat politicians were keeping their distance from Giannoulias, whose reputation was so questionable he even failed to get the endorsement of the Chicago Democrat Party—which just happens to almost never be concerned about questionable reputations.

Obama’s mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, once worked for the Ford Foundation’s Asiaprogram, which JUST HAPPENED to be run by Peter Geithner, who JUST HAPPENED to be the father of Timothy Geithner, who JUST HAPPENED to neglect to pay Social Security taxes on much of his income, which JUST HAPPENED to somehow qualify him to be Obama’s Treasury Secretary.

During the 2008 campaign Obama’s passport records JUST HAPPENED to have been illegally searched by an employee of a firm headed by John O. Brennan, and Lt. Quarles Harris, Jr., who was cooperating with federal investigators in connection with the incident, JUST HAPPENED to be found with a bullet in his head, and the murder JUST HAPPENED never to be solved, and Obama later JUST HAPPENED to make Brennan his terrorism and intelligence advisor.

On election night in 2008 in Chicago’s Grant Park, Obama JUST HAPPENED to wear a black suit and a red tie, and his older daughter JUST HAPPENED to wear a red dress, and his younger daughter JUST HAPPENED to wear a stark black dress, and his wife Michelle JUST HAPPENED to wear an arguably unattractive black dress that appeared to have a giant red X design, which JUST HAPPENED to prompt some to wonder if their clothing JUST HAPPENED to denote black power, communism, and Malcolm X, and at the very least prompted others to wonder why anyone would have his daughter wear a jet-black dress for a celebratory occasion—or where one could even just happen to find a store that sells black dresses for little girls.

From election night forward there are hundreds of other “JUST HAPPENEDs,” not the least of which is the long-form birth certificate released by Obama in April 2011 which JUST HAPPENED to consist of multiple image layers, including various objects which can be separated and rotated with computer software—which just happens to be impossible if a birth certificate is merely scanned and not computer-constructed by a forger.

You get the idea.

P.S. If Obama just happens to win reelection on Nov 6, remember that hyperinflation just happens to be the inescapable consequence of printing trillions of dollars to cover massive government deficits. But never mind that! Romney would defund PBS and hasn't released some years of tax returns!

Do you think any Republican with even just 1 of the "Just Happened's" above, would have made it this far? Would the MSM have ignored a fraction of it?

Fake Obama Birth Video Shows Fake Ann Dunham Giving Fake Birth to Fake Newborn

The most amazingly, entertainingly fake video of a fake Barack Obama being born -- featuring a baby that is all cleaned up and looks about three months old -- to a fake Ann Dunham in a fake Kenyan hospital has been leaked to Vice because, wait for it, the leaker couldn't get in touch with Donald Trump.

Hey, check it out. I'm Ronnie Reagan. I won the cold war all by myself.

I did by invading Grenada, making the U.S. Army almost 1/4 the size of the Communist block forces, and the threat of SDI, which never worked.

So the Russians went bankrupt. I can't prove they went bankrupt. But I'll just keep saying it over and over until you believe me.

You might ask why didn't the Russians go bankrupt when Hitler overran half of European Russia and wiped out three million Soviet troops in the first six months alone.

I'll tell you why. Hitler just didn't have the magic Reagan touch.

Heh heh heh. Now excuse me while I eat jellybeans and read my horoscope. It's how I conduct policy. Heh heh heh.

Nobody "won" the Cold War. It only ended when a Russian moderate, Gorbachev, came along.
Before then, the Russian hardliners stared Reagan eyeball to eyeball and never blinked.
If Russia surrendered, show me a pic of our troops occupying Moscow. Show me the Russian articles of surrender. You can't, because it never happened.
As for Clinton, the only attack on U.S. soil came five weeks into his first term with no warning. And he responded by vastly beefing up FBI and CIA counter-terror units.
As for GW Bush, he was in command when we suffered the worst terror attack in our history. Tenet warned him several times and he shrugged them all off.
Then to top it off, the GOP dimwit lies us into a war with the wrong country.
You guys never cease trying to glorify your abysmal failures.
I'm sorry your side lost the Cold War. Face reality. Get over it.

Gorbachev did the only thing that could be done to salvage the Russian economy. The loser of the Cold War was not going to emerge as the same nation. If we had lost the Cold War, the same thing that happened to the Soviet Union would have happened to us. We wouldn't be the United States anymore.

"As for Clinton, the only attack on U.S. soil came five weeks into his first term with no warning. And he responded by vastly beefing up FBI and CIA counter-terror units."

And that explains Clinton gutting the CIA with his "human rights purge" and Al Qaeda bombing the US as if they're on a schedule... and the 9/11/2001 attack being planned and the terrorists already in the United States taking flying lessons when Bush took office.

But, Bush put the CIA back together sufficiently to arrest one of the 9/11 hijackers before the attack. In fact, we had the 9/11 plans in our possession before the attack, Zacariah Moussaoui. But, liberal judges wouldn't let the FBI look into Moussaoui's hard drive.
For some reason, these liberal judges didn't have any constitutional objection to this on 9/12.

Get an education. That indoctrination you allowed yourself to be consumed with makes you look like an idiot.

Has the Muslim Brotherhood Infiltrated the Romney Campaign?

Of course, these spurious claims against Ramadan, Norquist and Salem are just as baseless and wrong as their attacks against the Obama administration and the Muslim-Americans serving in it.

But while extremists like Geller, Gaffney, Horowitz and others are quick to attack Obama with such bogus charges, for some reason it seems unlikely Romney will receive similar treatment.

The GOP...

The Party of ultra rich punks.

The party which led us into the Great Depression.

The party of Joe McCarthy who had thousands blacklisted.

The party of Watergate.

The party of Iran-Contra.

The party that uses the CIA to install fascist dictatorship around the globe.

The party that failed to win in Afghanistan.

The party that launched a detour war by lies on Iraq.

The party whose "trickle down" economics left behind millions of unemployed, a banking crisis, the stock markets in free fall, and a major recession.

Which they blame on Obama.

Take a bow, elephants.

Five Ways Mitt Romney Has Moved To The Center Since The Republican Primary
“We’re going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20 percent, including the top 1 percent,” Romney said during a GOP primary debate in February.
But in the general election, painted by President Obama as a candidate mainly interested in serving the wealthy, he introduced a new component: the rich won’t actually get a tax cut because he’d close deductions and loopholes for high incomes.
“I will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income Americans,” Romney said during the first debate with Obama, in Denver. In a subsequent debate, he said,“I’m not looking to cut taxes for wealthy people. I am looking to cut taxes for middle-income people.”
http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/10/fi...
Hell, I might even vote for that guy.
But will he be that guy tomorrow?
You're criticizing Romney for moving to the center?

I wish Obama had moved an inch toward the center.

By closing the loopholes, the rich will end up paying more in taxes anyway as Romney said. Loopholes are the enemy when it comes to the wealthy and government revenues - not raising taxes even more including capital gains.

Center is a good place for any president to be. It brings both sides together. Even a little right or left of center is good.

So you can go ahead and vote for Romney. He will not waver in his conviction of shrinking the size of the federal government and giving more power back to the states - and putting more of your hard-earned money back in your wallet.

You say Gorbachev did the only thing he could to salvage the Russian economy. That's funny coming from a Republican. We've already seen what you did to our economy under Bush. So please don't pretend to be an expert on the subject.

That Russia "surrendered" is a myth. There is nothing to substantiate it except GOP hype repeated endlessly.

The fact is that Russia never lost any territory and still possessed it's fleet of nuclear missiles, strategic bombers and ground forces.

You don't "defeat" anyone without engaging and destroying their armed forces in combat.

I can just as easily argue Gorbachev forced Reagan to remove our intermediate range missiles from Western Europe. So perhaps Ronnie surrendered.
