If you looked at the post immediately below my reply post, you'll see the correction of the typo.
"The Romney campaign...."
If you are proficient in the English language, you would know that there is a noun that would follow the word "Romney" when the English phrase "The Romney....(something)"
In America, you cannot refer to Mitt Romney as "The Romney".
Everyone knows that the only person who has earned the title of "The" in his name is The Donald.
You'd know that if you were a real American.)))))
What about "DA BAMMY"? LOL

100,000+ Defense Civilian Employees Could Lose Jobs
The Obama administration has missed a key deadline to submit a report on how it would implement $109 billion in across-the-board budget cuts scheduled to take effect Jan. 2.
Obama has said he plans to use what little flexibility exists in the sequestration rules to exempt military personnel from sequestration cuts, which will force the cuts to fall harder on other areas. About 108,000 Defense civilian employees could lose their jobs next year if sequestration takes effect, according to a report last month by the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments.
More lies from the lying POS Gunner.

The military cuts would only take place if your hero Paul Ryan fails again to reach a compromise.

Call Ryan & bitch to him.

Sequestration Will Cost Engineers

In 2011, amid partisan battles over how to balance the federal budget and reduce spending, Congress passed a law with a nuclear option. As part of the Budget Control Act, budget sequestration—an automatic reduction of federal spending—will begin in January 2013 unless Congress approves a deficit-reduction bill with at least $1.2 trillion in cuts.

The sequester would cost tens of thousands of federally employed engineers their jobs, drastically reduce the number of federal contracts available to engineers, and significantly cut federally funded research and development and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education programs.

The sequester is set to last through 2021.

So, in Obama's government, his Department of Labor chooses who has to comply with federal law and who doesn't....

That should be enough for anyone who has any respect at all for the Constitution to want Obama tossed out on his dictator-wannabe ass.

Let's start with Obama spending more money on "Porkulus" than the total spent on the war in Iraq from the beginning in 2003 through the end of 2010, and getting nothing for it.
No infrastructure built/rebuilt/upgraded.
A problem that has been known to exist since the first hurricane blew down the first power line hung from a pole in the air is, the power lines need to be put underground.
Did the power lines get put underground with the 860 billion dollars Obama spent on "Porkulus"?
Nope.
So, just what infrastructure did we get built/rebuilt/upgraded with Obama's "Porkullus"?
... nothing.
No shovel-ready projects completed?
... nothing.
If Obama had spent "Porkulus" money on actual jobs instead of stuffing full the pockets of Democrat cronies with more money that the total of money spent on the war in Iraq, then the power lines in the northeast would be underground today, and we wouldn't have 20 million people without power today after a weak hurricane passed through.
Yup. That looks like Obama's fault.
So no infrastructure was rebuilt or upgraded.

Funny, many local roads were repaved with stimulus money & that would make you a liar once again.

You are such an idiot. You think all of the stimulus money was to go to infrastructure?

My God you are one dumb tea party idiot.

What FEMA thing?

What upsets me is the Obama White House hanging Americans out to dry in Benghazi, and causing them to be killed by Al Qaeda.

You remember Al Qaeda, don't you? The people that started the Arab jihad war with the United States by murdering 3000 Americans here in the United States.
Somehow, we ended up with a president that is on their side.

How do you suppose that ironic event happened here?

Defense Firms Confirm Layoff Warnings

“Should sequestration occur, I believe it will have a devastating impact on our company and the defense industry,” wrote Lockheed CEO Robert Stevens.“It will undoubtedly lead to facility closures and significant job loss. It will disrupt our advanced manufacturing operations, erode our engineering expertise and capability and accelerate the loss of critical skills and knowledge.”

The Governor of New Jersey's state was amongst those hit the hardest, with devastation he described as incomparable to anything he'd ever seen.
A staunch Republican, and an endorser of presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Christie has crossed the aisle this week, and praised President Barack Obama for his support:

Wasting Stimulus Money

*Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida used $15,551 in stimulus money to pay two researchers to study how alcohol affects a mouse's motor functions.

*The U.S. government handed over a staggering $54 million in "stimulus cash" to Connecticut's politically-connected Mohegan Indian tribe, which runs one of the highest grossing casinos in the country.

*Syracuse professor of psychology Michael Carey received $219,000 in federal stimulus money for a study that examines the sex patterns of college women.

*$1.15 million in stimulus funds was allocated for the installation of a new guard rail around the non-existent Optima Lake in Oklahoma.

*Researchers at the State University of New York at Buffalo received $389,000 to pay 100 residents of Buffalo $45 each to record how much malt liquor they drink and how much pot they smoke each day. Instead of spending nearly $400,000, the U.S. government could have achieved the same goal by having a couple of scientists join a fraternity.

*$100,000 in federal stimulus funds were used for a martini bar and a brazilian steakhouse.

*A dinner cruise company in Chicago got nearly $1 million in stimulus funds to combat terrorism.

*$233,000 in stimulus money went to the University of California at San Diego to study why Africans vote.

*The Cactus Bug Project at the University Of Florida was allocated $325,394 in stimulus funds to study the mating decisions of cactus bugs. According to the project proposal, one of the questions that will be answered by the study is this: "Whether males with large weapons are more or less attractive to females."

*One Denver developer received $13 million in tax credits to construct a senior housing complex despite that fact that the same developer is being sued as a slumlord for running rodent-infested apartment buildings in the city of San Francisco.

*Sheltering Arms Senior Services was awarded a contract worth $22.3 million in stimulus money to weatherize homes for poor families in Houston, Texas - but a new report from Texas Watchdog says that the weatherization work was performed so badly that 33 of the 53 homes will need to be completely redone.

*A liberal theater in Minnesota named "In the Heart of the Beast" (in reference to a well known quote by communist radical Che Guevara) received $100,000 for socially conscious puppet shows.

*California's inspector general found that $1 million in stimulus funds for a program to give summer jobs to young people was improperly used for overhead expenses such as rent and utility bills.

*Landon Cox, a Duke University assistant professor of computer science, was awarded $498,000 in stimulus money to study Facebook.

*The town of Union, New York is being urged to spend $578,000 in stimulus money that it did not request for a homelessness problem that it claims it does not have.

*Lastly, who could forget the $3.4 million "ecopassage" to help turtles cross a highway in Tallahassee, Florida?

Yes, the U.S. government sure knows how to waste money.

How much did Obama's campaign contribute?
That is equal to the total number of votes in Congress for all 2 of Obama's budgets he submitted of the 4 we hired him to submit in the 4 years he's been golfing around the White House - ZERO.
That's NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH.

Obama’s stimulus paves few new roads...

Money from the Obama administration’s $787 billion stimulus package to pave the nation’s highways staved off a sharp decline in highway spending but has done little to increase spending above levels before the recession hit last year, according to groups representing contractors and state highway officials.
