Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Call it a threat or a promise.
A new poll shows that affluent business leaders plan to invest more, spend more and put more money into their businesses if Mitt Romney wins the election. If Obama wins, many plan to pull back their spending and investing – which could create fewer jobs.

I've got news for you, those same wealthy businessmen are the very ones who refused to hire IN THE US since President Obama was elected, purely on the grounds of politics and greed. I don't want to bow down to the same carpet baggers and profiteers who are now slithering toward the East Coast areas ravaged by Sandy. I certainly don't want to vote in their Puppet President, Mitt Romney who has repeatedly stated the Private Sector should take care of disaster areas instead of giving tax paying citizens disaster relief funds.

Blaming Obama alone for the US economy is like blaming Chris Christie for the last quarter economic failure that will be on record for New Jersey. If people looked at numbers alone Chris would look like he was slacking in the last quarter, because all economic growth came to a halt for a week or more. PEOPLE, YOU HAVE TO KNOW ALL THE FACTS TO MAKE CORRECT CHOICES. Don't fall for their ludicrous BS. Saying if "I only vote for the billionaire thieves and tax cheats like Bernie Madoff I might get a job", is like saying if I stay real quiet and don't upset the man raping me, maybe he will get done faster and go away. You know who has the majority of the country's money. You know who raped and pillaged this country before Obama was elected, the whole world is asking why are you begging them to do it again?

The rich (many are foreign investors)will hire more people if Romney gets elected but it won't be Americans. I guarantee it from Mitt's past performance record. http://www.forbes.com/sites/frederickallen/20...

President Obama has faced more than just one National Disaster. He never allowed a Katrina to happen yet he is demonized. President Obama was handed two wars, certain economic collapse and he managed to pull us out from the brink and is bringing our troops home. Now they want you to fall for any BS the far right wing nuts put out, you swallow complete lies and support a man who will bring back those same exact FAILED BUSH policies that nearly destroyed our economy. Maybe you need to learn the lesson again the hard way. Some of you never had Depression parents so you don't have a clue what electing Romney will do to those of us who aren't rich, who have no political power or even a voice (lobbyists) in Washington.

Obama has halted his fund raising emails and his campaign is using it's Twitter, Facebook and campaign pages to urge donations to the Red Cross storm relief. This is the man, with a heart, that I voted to elect and I voted to re-elect. This the type of man I want leading this country. He can't do this alone, we have to help each other whether we like each others politics or not. I wish it didn't take natural disasters to teach us WE HAVE to work together in order to survive. If you donate to any Relief fund for victims of "Hurricane Sandy" please be sure they are Reputable.

Hitting the campaign trail one day after the arrival of Superstorm Sandy, Republican nominee Mitt Romney tweaked his position on abortion today, saying he now supports it in cases where it makes people vote for him.

“I would make an exception for abortion in cases where the life of my campaign is at stake,” he told a crowd in Kettering, Ohio.

Sandy, which slammed into the East Coast, was such a powerful weather system that it prevented Mr. Romney from changing his position on abortion for twenty-four hours.

“It was important for Mitt to come up with a new position on abortion today,” said his campaign manager, Matt Rhoades.“It sends a message to the American people that in the aftermath of Sandy, things are getting back to normal.”

Mr. Romney made no reference to his comments about eliminating FEMA, which have been declared a disaster area.

“God bless you, Mr. President”

HYPOCRITICAL OBAMA wrote:
President Obama has accused Mitt Romney of raking in profits from investing in companies that ship American jobs overseas, but according to his most recent financial disclosure, he and First Lady Michelle Obama have hundreds of thousands of dollars in a mutual fund that has large holdings in corporations that outsource jobs.
“(Romney) invested in companies that have been called ‘pioneers’ of outsourcing,” Obama said at a Saturday campaign event in Glen Allen, Va.“I don’t want a pioneer in outsourcing. I want some insourcing.”
But Obama’s own portfolio shows a willingness to invest in American corporations that have shifted employment overseas.
In his most recent financial disclosure from 2011, Obama and his wife reported having between $200,000 and $450,000 in the Vanguard 500 Index Fund, which invests in the largest U.S. corporations. According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as of Sept. 30, 2011, the fund’s biggest holding was 8,272,039 shares of Apple Inc., then valued at $3.2 billion.
The New York Times reported in January:
Not long ago, Apple boasted that its products were made in America. Today, few are. Almost all of the 70 million iPhones, 30 million iPads and 59 million other products Apple sold last year were manufactured overseas….
“Apple’s an example of why it’s so hard to create middle-class jobs in the U.S. now,” said Jared Bernstein, who until last year was an economic adviser to the White House.
“If it’s the pinnacle of capitalism, we should be worried.”
The mutual fund that the Obamas have invested in also held 94,582,281 million shares of General Electric, valued at $1.4 billion, as of the SEC filing. The multinational conglomorate has a long history of outsourcing – according to a new book cited by the New York Times, in 1989,“G.E. became the first U.S. company to outsource software work to India.” Obama also has close ties to GE’s CEO, Jeffrey Immelt, who was appointed as chairman of his outside panel of economic advisers last year.
In addition to Apple and GE, the Obamas’ fund listed 10,655,961 shares of International Business Machines, valued at $1.9 billion. As the Wall Street Journal reported in 2009,“The technology giant has been steadily building its work force in India and other locations while reducing the number of workers based in the U.S. Foreign workers accounted for 71% of Big Blue’s nearly 400,000 employees at the start of the year, up from about 65% in 2006.”
The point in this is not to say outsourcing is wrong. Corporations are supposed to maximize profits for shareholders. But Obama’s own portfolio shows that despite his heated rhetoric, he makes investment decisions without regard to whether companies are outsourcing.
You can look at a full list of the fund’s holdings as of Sept. 30, 2011, here.
You don't know the difference between a pension plan with Mutual Funds and a "Blind" trust with assets hidden all over the place? Typical R'Money supporter.

So, what you're saying is, the Romney reached into its own pockets and contributed 5,000 dollars to the relief effort.
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.
Yup. Typical Democrat. "I'm not supposed to help. I'm just supposed to tell you what to do to help. All of you have to do everything to help. I'm just hear to make noise with my mouth."
NO, no, no. Romney did not use his own money. He used money that you contributed. His money is tied up elsewhere - Cayman Islands and such

Problem with CIA foreign stuff is that the truth will come out in 20 years.
Cuban missile crisis details are still being revealed.
FEMA is on everyones mind
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:
"This is much more important than any election, Piers. This is the livelihood of the people in my state," says the 50-year-old who was born in Newark. "When the president does things that deserve praise, I will give him praise.
FEMA is not on everyone's mind.
The physical damage from the storm was minimal. The only problems are with the electrical infrastructure that didn't get updated with the 860 billion dollars Obama spent on "Porkulus".
It's only those Democrats that want to pretend Obama's empty chair abandoned the Americans fighting Al Qaeda in Libya never happened.

It seems the weak hurricane story is fading fast. Your political cow is running out of milk.
Back to the important issues....

Who in the White House told Susan Rice what to say all over the television networks and at the UN?
It obviously wasn't Obama.
Who is making the decisions our empty chair should be making?

Who do you think it is?

Later today, President Obama inspects damage from Hurricane Sandy along the Jersey shore, accompanied by Gov. Chris Christie, R-N.J.
They will be "talking with citizens who are recovering from the storm and thanking first responders who put their lives at risk to protect their communities," said the White House.
Obama will be detracting from the cleanup effort by diverting first responders to his security instead of that of the residents.....

purely a political stunt.....

of course, the left would squeal that such financial responsibility would discriminate against minorities....
Yet again, I urge you to investigate the CRA, redline area loans and the G-L-B Act before you make more squealing noises about what you obviously don't know.
