Obama & the media hid stuff, moron. To claim they didn't shows what an idiot you are. He' still hiding his transcipts because of his crappy grades & because he doesn't want everyone to know all the commie/anti-American courses he took.
Idiot.
And probably because he registered as a FOREIGN STUDENT.

How does a black kid with NO JOB afford the elite schools he went to?

Foreign, Muslim and/or communist money funneled to him?

I think it's a disgrace that when he should be saluting the Marine guards he's yapping on his cellphone instead.

Abnormal Ridge Of High Pressure Over California This Week
( TheWeatherSpace.com )- Usually California sees numerous storms into the area after Halloween, but rarely does it get this type of weather pattern.
But according to TheWeatherSpace.com Senior Meteorologist Kevin Martin this ridge developed fairly quickly, a blocking to any storms moving in.
"The ridge basically developed out of nowhere," said Martin. "This is causing warmer conditions across the state. Some have even reported this as feeling like 'earthquake weather'."
HaarpStatus.com Network continues to say a sizable earthquake will hit the region this week.

In February 2009, the Obama Administration promised the American public that after their nearly trillion dollar stimulus took effect, the unemployment rate would drop down to 5.3% at the end of his first term.

Carol agrees that when Republicans think of the people ahead of their party, their party calls them traitors.
Yes, actually helping Americans if a Democrat might get credit or if it might hurt their party is treason to the right.
This is just how anti-american the Republicans have become.
Their boy John Roberts was also labeled a traitor for having the courage to give an HONEST interpretation of the constitution!!! These right wing wackos have had all their craziness validated by FOX News. The "values" party has lost its way.

PADDY STEPPED BACK AND ALMOST FELL DOWN THE STAIRS. HE REACHED INSIDE HIS ROBE THEN AND DISCOVERED HIS CRUCIFIX WAS GONE. HE'D TAKEN IT OFF TO DRY HIMSELF AND HAD FORGOTTEN TO PUT IT BACK ON.

THE WITCH NAMED JANE HELD IT UP FOR HIM THEN. SHE'D TURNED IT UPSIDE DOWN ON IT'S CHAIN AND SHE DANGLED IT IN THE AIR SO HE COULD APPRECIATE HER HANDIWORK. "LOOKING FOR THIS?" THE THING ASKED. AND HER SILENT FAMILIAR GAZED DOWN AT HIM THOUGHTFULLY, CONSIDERING WHETHER TO EAT HIM NOW OR LATER PADDY THOUGHT.

In January 2009, the office of the president-elect released a study to promote the then-proposed stimulus bill. Titled “The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan,” it was written by economists Christina Romer and Jared Bernstein.
Nevertheless, the bottom line is this: Not only did the stimulus not provide the boost that was promised, but the $819 billion hole it blew in the budget only exacerbated economic uncertainty in a nation already worried about its deficit. Under the White House’s own predictions, had Congress done nothing, the economy would be better off.
http://blogs.investors.com/capitalhill/index....
In it, the White House argued that with the stimulus plan, unemployment would peak around 8% by the end of 2009 and would be well below 6% today. If, on the other hand, Congress did not pass the stimulus package, it warned that unemployment would rise to about 9% in 2010 and still be around 6.4% today. The then-Democratic-majority Congress passed the stimulus by the end of the month.
correct. ""Titled “The Job Impact of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan,” it was written by economists Christina Romer and Jared Bernstein."""
.
Obama NEVER said the unemployment rate would be below 8%. He said the study stated it could be.
So, just like I said, Obama NEVER promised or said the unemployment rate would be below 8%.
