The bottom line is that there is free phone assistance available to those who qualify but it is not an Obama administration program. Taxpayers do support the program but not through federal income taxes. And despite the screaming lady in the video, eligibility doesn’t hinge on Social Security, disability or food stamps; there’s no “buy one bag of chips, get an Obama phone free” promotion. Just because a woman holding a sign gets a microphone in her face doesn’t make her statements true.

I'm calm, homie. So we are now using "concern" instead of gloating? Why don't we just call it what it is?
Homer doesn't gloat. I recognize almost half the voters disagree with this president.

It's a reaction from a stunned wall street that was hoping a Republican POTUS would reverse some of the financial regs so they could get back to screwing everyone in sight.

At the same time gold is still in decline__not to mention oil prices.

You helped reelect a president who has no reservations about killing a baby coming out of the birth canal with a pair of scissors stuck in the back of its neck.
Maybe you should think about that for a while.
Killing a baby coming out of the birth canal with a pair of scissors stuck in the back of its neck is one of those "women's health issues" Democrats keep talking about.

According to one Tea Party leader, the reason for Mitt Romney’s loss to President Barack Obama is that he was not conservative enough and was “weak-kneed” and a throwback to Bob Dole and John McCain. The President Bush’s were not named, however.

"I eagerly await the day the GOP establishment figures out that the 'safe' candidates are not getting the job done," stated Hughes. "The GOP needs to adhere to stricter ideological purity and put forth candidates that represent a significant difference in viewpoint from the Democrats that are creating devastating policies for Americans. The Republican Party has been shoving 'their' candidate down the throats of conservatives for years, and it's not working. It's time for them to wake up."

You're running the same stuff we heard in 2009.

Do you wonder why you're repeating the same BS that never came to fruition the first time around??

The whole gun thing is the biggest joke of the bunch.'He just waited until...!" How pathetic is that. But how goes the NRA coffers nowadays? Suckers.

Now that Obamacare is the law of the land and everybody will be required to purchase health insurance, how will the non-producers manage to pay for it? You don't suppose "qualified recipients" will get government assistance for that too do you? Nahhh.....not a chance!
