Barack Obama, our next President

Would you like to begin with unemployment, the economy, the lack of unity in our nation, the inability to work with both sides of Congress, the disastrous Obamacare, the national debt, the Benghazi manipulation, or some other area?

You might be a little more suspicious of those 'powers that be' that think we need a vampire capitalist Mormon bishop war-mongering draft dodger as POTUS.
Since 1981, National Journal's annual vote ratings have defined where members of Congress stand ideologically. The ratings rank lawmakers on how they vote relative to each other on a conservative-to-liberal scale in both the Senate and the House. The scores are based on the members' votes in three areas: economic issues, social issues, and foreign policy.

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was the most liberal senator in 2007, based on National Journal ís vote ratings. He shifted further to the left last year in the run-up to the presidential primaries, after ranking as the 16th- and 10th-most-liberal during his first two years in the Senate. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., also shifted to the left last year, although she has generally been more moderate in the ratings than her Democratic presidential rival.

Now we're buried up to our knees.
C'mon Homer. Where's the smart?
I'm sorry Carol, but the Republican party as it stands today is on the self imploding model. Even Reagan's son says his father would not know this party of today. All this rant about Obama's record when infact the Republicans have blocked EVERY single piece of legislation that comes past its desk. With stupid $hit signing pledges with tea party about no new taxes and the same time block spending cuts. Would any rational business be operated this way and survive, yet this is how the Republicans operate these days. You know Reagan raised taxes 11 times he was in office yet this Republican icon has been painted some mythical figure by the likes of Fox. The point is between Fox news and the Tea party movement the conservatives have evolved into what I call America's Taliban.
Trying to recapture the past yet it has long since passed them by so as a result say their prime mission is to bring down a president even if it brings down the country. You need to have a good hard look yourselves. There are good people still left in the Republican party like Alan Simpson who shows that common sense should prevail unfortunately he is in the minority now.
Just a sample of some of his quotes which should ring true.

Simpson told CNN's Fareed Zakaria that Republicans' rigid opposition to new tax revenues has hampered productivity and diminished the chances of reaching an agreement with Democrats on debt reduction. "You canít cut spending your way out of this hole," Simpson, who was appointed as co-chair of President Obama's Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform in 2010, said. "You canít grow your way out of this hole, and you canít tax your way out of this hole. So put that in your pipe and smoke it, we tell these people. This is madness."

Simpson continued: "If you want to be a purist, go somewhere on a mountaintop and praise the east or something. But if you want to be in politics, you learn to compromise. And you learn to compromise on the issue without compromising yourself. Show me a guy who wonít compromise and Iíll show you a guy with rock for brains."

I was in Wal-Mart just the other day and overheard a woman who looked completely stressed out say with a lot of sadness in her voice "prices are going up..."
Almost made me cry. Truly. Especially when I saw how little costs so much when I checked out myself.
It's the elistists who are the most unaffected. For now anyway.
Only people who hate America shop at WalMart. It's all Chinese crap there!! Didn't Mitt say something about China?? Yet you still buy Chinese crap?? That's as bad as shopping for furniture at the curb.

WalMart is responsible for offshoring more American jobs than all other sources combined!!

And they treat their employees like slaves.

Why do you hate America so much, Carol??

Will you go back to Lorac after Obama wins??

What Caused the Financial Crisis?

An article in the NY Times, "Pressured to Take on Risk, Fannie Hit a Tipping Point," is causing many people to wonder if Fannie and Freddie caused the financial crisis.

First, let me clarify the question. We are asking what caused the housing bubble, and, by definition, the cause cannot be explained by changes in an underlying market fundamental. I don't mean that we can't point to, say, a rumor that led to a rapid increase in the price of some good as speculators rush in, just that bubbles - by definition - are divorced from market fundamentals.

I think a more interesting question is what sets the stage for a bubble to emerge - what allows the rumor, irrational exuberance, etc., to express itself as a bubble? One thing that is needed is liquidity and credit, some way of substantially increasing demand. This is the air that inflates the bubble. Even if all the other conditions for a bubble to emerge are present, if there is no way to inflate the bubble - no way for speculators to rush in and drive up the price - then it won't inflate.

Yes. A communist imposes state control of production, subjugates individual's interests to the collective and create death panels to murder enemies of the state. Ya know, like the Kenyan mau mau

ps

Communists live good while the collective suffers. Ditto the Kenyan

<quoted text>So Bush makes a bad purchase on some crappy trailers and Obama is supposed to pay to fix them up?
Let me get this straight....
Are you saying that the homeless people from Katrina didn't need anything?
I'm betting everything I own you weren't saying that then.

The bottom line is, those trailers were owned by FEMA for the purpose of providing temporary housing for people after a natural disaster.
Obama took ownership of those trailers the day he took office.
After a trillion dollars was stolen from Porkulus by Democrat cronies, those trailers continued to rot in the hot and humid semi-tropical environment of the Gulf coast.
Now, we needed them.

But, I just love this. Obama lets all the FEMA trailers rot and it's somehow Bush's fault agian.
That is hillarious.
Dinosaurs go extinct. Bush's fault.
It rained yesterday. Bush's fault.

I wasn't a big fan of George Bush, but he was a lot better than the fraud clown act we have now.

Another right whiner wanting not only to place the blame of the recession on Obama but also blame him for the debt run up by Paul Ryan & George Bush.
We had balanced budgets & a surplus on the path to paying down our debt.
But Paul Ryan said nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooo, and he & his Republicans voted to take us off that path.
On purpose!!!!!
Then the sniveling little weasel Ryan runs around bitching about deficits & debt. Where is his apology to the American people???
