Barack Obama, our next President

<quoted text>If I had a 13-year-old child he/she would not be allowed to go to Mexico or anywhere else for a weekend of drugs, booze and sex. The story is true. Judicial Watch is suing the Obamas for reimbursement. Just google it (if you know how how to do that).
Judicial Watch suing for "reimbursement." Do any of you losers have an IQ at least at room temperature. Want to know who and what Judicial Watch is? "Founded by conservative attorney Larry Klayman in 1994,[3] Judicial Watch came to public attention after filing 18 lawsuits against the administration of Democratic U.S. President Bill Clinton and figures in the Clinton administration. The organization received considerable financial support from prominent Clinton critics, including $7.74 million from conservative billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife.[4] This led Clinton administration officials to accuse Judicial Watch of "abusing the judicial system for partisan ends."[5] According to Judicial Watch, Clinton and top Congressional Democrats encouraged the IRS to audit them and say that an IRS agent asked them, "What do you expect when you sue the President?"[6] However, Judicial Watch's consistent investigations against Democratic figures have led to many accusations that the group's lawsuits are focused on being politically motivated to help Republicans rather than enforce the law.[7][8][9]

However, in July 2003 Judicial Watch joined the environmental organization the Sierra Club in suing the George W. Bush administration for access to minutes of Vice President Dick Cheney's Energy Task Force.[10] After several years of legal wrangling, in May, 2005 an appeals court permitted the Energy Task Force's records to remain secret.[11][12]

In September 2003, Klayman left the organization to run for the United States Senate from Florida.[13] In 2006 Klayman sued Judicial Watch and its president Tom Fitton. The lawsuit charged Fitton misrepresented his academic and professional credentials upon hiring, and upon assuming his position engaged in false and misleading fund raising, misuse of donor money, failure to appoint an attorney as Chairman, failure to comply with a promised severance package to Klayman, and other actions which damaged Judicial Watch, the donors and Klayman.[14][15] The majority of Klayman’s claims have been dismissed, including all claims against Fitton and the other officers of the organization.[16] The only claims by Klayman that remain pending before the Court consist of allegations that Judicial Watch breached a severance agreement with Klayman.[17]

Judicial Watch has asserted several claims against Klayman.[18] On October 14, 2009, the Court found that Klayman breached the severance agreement by failing to pay Judicial Watch,$69,358,48 in unreimbursed personal expenses.[19] The remainder of Judicial Watch’s claims against Klayman, which include additional claims of breaches of the severance agreement and trademark infringement, remain pending before the Court as of October 5, 2010.[20]

In 2007 former donor Peter F. Paul sued Judicial Watch, accusing it of using his name to raise more than $15 million to support his lawsuit against Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton while doing little to advance his case."

On Tuesday, millions of voters sent a resounding message to the take-it-back crowd: You won’t. You can’t. It’s our country, too.[...]
On Tuesday, the America of today asserted itself. Four years ago, the presidential election was about Barack Obama and history. This time, it was about us—who we are as a nation—and a multihued, multicultural future.

A little test. Drive through any gang dominated neighborhood or illegal alien barrio and yell out "OBAMA" and see if they yell back "Romney",(if you don't get killed first). I doubt it. Check the names on our international enemies list and see who they endorsed. Is there any question who the chronically unemployed voted for? How about disaffected, overextended college students, who'd they vote for? What about strong-armed labor unions? I won't mention sexually deviant voters. Do you see a pattern here? Do you think these people endorse Obama because of his winning smile, or traditional American values? Is that why you voted for him?
This president oozes giveaways, spineless determination, and a pro-Muslim foreign policy. What's more troubling is half the voters in this country are willing to snuggle right in behind him, no matter what he does, as long as he keeps giving sh!t away.

Judicial Watch (cont.) "According to David Corn, Judicial Watch uses litigation as its primary tool,[3] and its web page contains detailed information on current litigation matters.[27] Judicial Watch activities include:

"Digging into questions about Barack Obama's ... and his gang's efforts to steal the 2012 elections." [28]
Suing the town of Herndon, Virginia to stop a "day laborer" program on the grounds that it may provide employment for illegal aliens.
Suing the U.S. Senate to disallow the filibuster in their debates over confirmation of judicial nominees, coinciding with proposed efforts by Republican Senate leaders to internally do the same thing.
Criticizing the George W. Bush administration for their guest worker program, obtaining evidence of a spike in illegal immigration denied by the administration.
Initiating a request to the Naval Inspector General for an investigation into the "legitimacy and propriety" of the awards John Kerry received for his service in Vietnam.[29] The inspector general's office subsequently determined that Kerry's awards "were properly approved" and declined to take further action in the matter;[30] the office also responded to Judicial Watch's Freedom of Information Act request with documentation of its review.[31]
Criticizing the U.S. Navy for securing a public relations firm to encourage Puerto Ricans to vote to keep a Naval testing range at Vieques, Puerto Rico.
Investigating fund-raising activities relating to the 1996 United States campaign finance controversy.[32]
Rejecting the adjudicated innocence of David Rosen, who served as campaign finance director for Democrat Hillary Clinton's campaign for the U.S. Senate and had been indicted for filing false reports.
Condemning as murder the death of Terri Schiavo, who lived for 15 years in a diagnosed persistent vegetative state and whose husband wished to allow to die. Her parents wished that she be kept on life support, and were joined in their pursuits by prominent Republicans.
Calling for Republican Tom DeLay to step down as House Majority Leader calling his actions on Medicare "inappropriate" and "unacceptable".[33]
Filing a lawsuit against Vice President Dick Cheney and Halliburton for alleged fraudulent accounting practices.[34]

New strategy...alienate everyone!

New Meme: Screw the Rich — They’re Democrats!

Bill Kristol may have put a finger on a way to assuage Republican heartburn about raising taxes on the wealthy as part of a fiscal cliff-averting deal with President Obama. He asks, incredulously: Is the GOP really going to “fall on its sword to defend a bunch of millionaires, half of whom voted Democratic and half of whom live in Hollywood and are hostile to Republican principles?”

Victor Davis Hanson seconds the motion:“Given that the wealthiest counties in the U.S. are mostly blue-voting elites who caricature Republicans for not voting for higher taxes, maybe Republicans should focus on ensuring no new taxes on the $80,000 to $250,000 upper-middle-class households and let the tax chips fall where they may on the mostly Obama households above that.”

But notice the moving goalposts. Kristol asserted that half of millionaires vote Democratic — a claim I doubt (for reasons outlined below), but which, on its face, isn’t completely insane. Hanson, however, parachutes into What Are You Smoking-stan with the idea that households making more than $250,000 are “mostly Obama households.” This is just not true. And it’s not even close.

Start with the Center for Responsive Politics’ revealing table on the top donors to President Obama and Mitt Romney. Individuals who donated to Obama were most often affiliated with the University of California, Microsoft Corp., Google Corp., the U.S. government, and Harvard University. Microsoft and Google undoubtedly boast their share of millionaires. But employees of universities and the federal government are far more likely to fall into Hanson’s $80,000-250,000 category.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney’s top donors hailed from — call the roll — Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan Chase and Co., and Credit Suisse Group.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/new-me...

If “Go ahead and tax the rich — they’re Democrats!” eventually becomes the sweetener that the Republican establishment needs to sell a deal to itself and to the Tea Party, and thereby save the country from a needless economic crisis, I say run with it.

cont. "

On June 20, 2007 the group released FBI documents related to the “expeditious departure” of Saudi nationals, including members of the bin Laden family, from the United States following the 9/11 attacks. According to one of the documents, dated September 21, 2001, Osama bin Laden himself may have chartered one of the Saudi flights.[36]

Launched an investigation into any White House's involvement in "branding" of the University of Arizona memorial for the victims of the 2011 mass shooting in Tucson, at which t-shirts bearing the slogan "Together We Thrive" were distributed. Judicial Watch demanded the university send them "any and all communications, contracts or correspondence between the University of Arizona and The White House concerning, regarding or relating to T-shirts bearing the logo 'Together We Thrive: Tucson & America,' distributed to attendees at the January 12, 2011, memorial service". The university replied that the White House had no involvement with the branding of the event, and that the slogan -- which Judicial Watch described as "an obvious play on a popular Obama presidential campaign theme" -- was devised by a university student.[37][38]

Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians

In 2010 Judicial Watch released their list of "Washington's ten Most Corrupt Politicians." [39] Appearing on the list are:[40]

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA)
Rahm Emanuel, Former Obama White House Chief of Staff
Senator John Ensign (R-NV)
Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA)
Rep. Jesse Jackson, Jr.(D-IL)
President Barack Obama
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
Rep. Charles Rangel (D-NY)
Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY)
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)

Funding

Between 1997 and 2002 Judicial Watch received $7,069,500 (unadjusted for inflation) in 19 grants from a handful of foundations. The bulk of this funding came from just three foundations – the Sarah Scaife Foundation, The Carthage Foundation, both managed by Richard Mellon Scaife, and the John M. Olin Foundation, Inc.,[41] which folded in 2005.[42] As of 2010, Scaife remains the group's main contributor

For Obama, who won four more years in office in Tuesday's election, this is his moment to bring a "balanced approach" to healing the nation's fiscal problems.

In the Democrat's eyes, that means keeping lower tax rates for the poor and middle class while forcing the rich to pay more income taxes. The president has vowed to veto legislation that extends the tax cuts.

With voters giving Republicans another two years to rule the House, Speaker Boehner argues it would be a mistake for Obama to conclude that he has a mandate from voters to hike income taxes.

The problem is Congress and lawmakers have only about six weeks to avert the fiscal cliff by at least coming up with a short-term compromise and addressing more radical reform in the following months.

http://news.msn.com/politics/congress-created...

I say to Speaker Boehner, let them take us over the cliff - singlehandedly.

Only two more years until another election in Congress. No matter how bad it gets, give the Democrats and those who voted for them exactly what they want.

If only all of that BS could have swayed the election.

It seems there is a severe lack of right wing nutjobs in this country. Maybe they should import some from Germany.
