Barack Obama, our next President

If more money is needed for rebuilding efforts after Sandy, Republicans will have to decide whether this is a fight they want to wage again.

Gov. Chris Christie, the fleece-wearing, order-barking Neptune of the Jersey Shore, was all over TV Tuesday, effusively praising the president for his luminous leadership on Hurricane Sandy, the same president he mocked last week at a Romney rally in Virginia as a naif groping to find “the light switch of leadership.”[...]
Rather than campaigning, which he finds draining, the president was in the Oval calling a Republican to work things out. But this time, unlike with John Boehner at a fateful moment, a flattered Christie took Obama’s calls. While Romney campaigns in Florida Wednesday, Christie and Obama plan to tour storm damage in New Jersey, a picture of bipartisanship, putting distressed people above dirt-slinging politics.

That after Christie told Mitt to take a flying leap.
An anti-Obama flier invoking Hurricane Sandy was reportedly distributed by conservative activist Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform, the Houston Chronicle reported Tuesday.

The advertisement, which appeared on northern Virginia doorsteps starting Tuesday, features a photo of President Obama superimposed over a storm image.

We've seen storms in Virginia, but none like this ..." reads the flier. "Barack Obama's policies have added $4 billion in debt each day he's been in office. Americans can't afford this debt."

President Barack Obama Targeted By Anonymous Hate Text Messages
WASHINGTON -- A sting of vitriol-laden text messages hit voters' phones Tuesday night, blasting President Barack Obama with anti-gay attacks and false claims.
Jennifer Cryer tweeted that she got one from sms@obamaliesett.com that said: "Stop Obama from forcing gay marriage on the states. Your vote is your voice."
Cryer used her voice, and answered back, saying "I'm gay, you fucking douchebags."

Mitt was dead set against FEMA before he was severely for it, but like all good Republicans, values self reliance and good old American "Don't pester me with your petty needs you little pissant I'm busy making money-ism."

With that in mind, Mitt offers some storm survival tips for those that can't afford to relocate to their second, third or fourth homes.

They were sure the lies would bring O down, but when the polls indicated that not all of us believe those lies they had to double down.

So what kind of President would Mitt be after riding into the WH on right wing lies?

Obama gets 47 percent of the vote, at the most. More likely he'll get 45 percent. That equates to being tossed out on his carnival ass.

You're going to see the exact same thing you saw in the mid-term elections when the American people handed the Democrats their asses to them.

By the way, it's obvious Obama didn't have anything to do with anything that happened in Libya when the US government hung those Americans there out to dry.
So, who in the White House is giving the orders the president should be giving?

If Obama has such a "super" record to run on then why is it that most of his ads are Romney attack ads instead positive"this is what I did for you and this is what I plan to do durig my second term ads?"

Obama acually answered this question himself. Obama said 'If you don't have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from.'

If you think he has had such a "super" record to run on sbstantiate your claim with facts.

You ghetto/gutter thugs are disGusting OBAMA/BIDEN 2012--or let the 1460 day countdown (to LEAVE the sane people alone and stop destroying the nation) begin!!
SAVE America!! VOTE OBAMA
I hate to introduce facts into your diatribe, but you're so ignorant, I can't help but let my philanthropist alter ego out and help you.

Obama had a super majority in the Senate and a dominant majority in the House for the first two years he was in office.(no budget)
Today, harry Reid is obstructing all legislation coming from the House (no budget)
Obama's entire tenure is characterized by absolute fiscal insanity.(no budget)
In four years, Obama has submitted only 2 budgets to Congress.
The sum total of votes in Congress for the combined 2 budgets he submitted in the 4 years he was supposed to submit budgets is ZERO. That's NADA, NOTHING, ZILCH. Obama is so far removed from reality, he couldn't get even one, not one single vote from even the Congressional Black Caucus.
It's obvious every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is a nut.

So, since it's obvious every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot, why do they put him on the ballot to be president again?

No it doesn't. Substantiate your claim with facts.

The United States is among a select few who have veto rights on the security council. So does Russia and China. There are other nations with veto power on the security council, but if it were limited to these three countries the United STates would only be 1/3 of the UN.

The Federal Flood Insurance Program has only $3 billion left in borrowing power. That means it will have to get the rest of the money from the Treasury. In other words you, me, China, and Japan. This does not include money from the state and federal government to rebuild roads and other infrastructure.

We are broke.

Maybe that 2 billion dollar line of credit Obama gave to the national oil company of Brasil, Petrobras, so they can buy up oil reserves in the Gulf of Mexico can be transferred to the Federal Flood Insurance Program.
Petrobras is one of the most successful and largest oil companies in the world. They don't need the 2 billion dollars Obama gave them.

That would give the Federal Flood Insurance Program 5 billion dollars.

What is Obama waiting for?

Jewish Romney Voters Are Fig Leaf for Christian Right

A Republican Vote Supports Intolerance and Ignorance

As William F. Buckley once reminded us, classical conservatives tended to be anti-Semitic. They looked down on Jews, blacks and immigrants, and had chauvinist ideas about women. It’s part of what being a conservative meant.

That began to change 50 years ago, when neoconservatism — that is, Jewish conservatism — began to take hold. Neoconservatism separated right-wing economic policies from paleoconservatism’s racism, sexism and anti-Semitism. Newly ascendant Jewish Republicans could now associate with the same conservatives who once wouldn’t let them into their social clubs.

But social conservatism never went away. On the contrary, it’s the reason the Republican Party exists today. And Jewish Republicans who prop it up are deceiving themselves.

On the first point, let’s look at the numbers. Republicans came to power in the 1980s because of the “Southern Strategy”— pandering to the racism of some Southerners — and the ascendant Christian Right. Ever since that time, neocons have had to make a deal with the devil. To gain power over economic and foreign affairs, they depend on the same religious (and often racist) paleoconservatives that were supposed to be neo-d out.

This is as true today as it was in 1980. Sure, there are some moderates surrounding Mitt Romney, including many Jews. But they will only gain power thanks to the Republican Party’s extreme Christian Right and Tea Party fringes. Just look at the numbers: Forty-six percent of Americans believe in Creationism. Almost all of them are Republicans; that means that there’s only a sliver of Republicans who aren’t also extremely traditionally religious. Who do you think really calls the shots?

Who’s using whom?

Jewish Republicans may pretend that they’re pulling a lever for smaller government and more free enterprise. But that same lever advances ignorance, theocracy and religious coercion. Of course, most Jewish Republicans don’t favor the Christian Right’s positions. But that’s what a Republican vote means, and to pretend otherwise is just willful ignorance.

Pure BS. The fact that you can't even cite it because you will only find that BS on right wing sites is all anyone of average intelligence needs to know.
