Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

Liberty to Lie
This election may go down in history as the moment when truth and lies lost their honor and stigma, respectively.
Mitt Romney has demonstrated an uncanny, unflinching willingness to say anything and everything to win this election. And that person, the unprincipled prince of untruths, is running roughly even with or slightly ahead of the president in the national polls.
What does this say about our country? What does it say about the value of virtue?
The list of Romney’s out-and-out lies (and yes, there is no other more polite word for them) is too long to recount here. So let’s just take one of the most recent ones: the utterly false claim that General Motors and Chrysler shipped, or planned to ship, American auto jobs to China.....
http://campaignstops.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/1...
Ever notice how FOX defended Mitt's lies?
Well first you have to realize that most of the lies came from FOX....
Like that 'terror' thing. When you make some talking head from CNN look good, well.......
Where is the list of Obama's out and out lies? You can start with his autobiographies. Or even just the lies by omission.

Like the lie omitted about the taxes the rich are not paying is infinitesimal compared to the taxes that will now fall on the middle class, courtesy of Obamacare.

Omitted is the fact that Obamacare represents the single largest tax hike in America’s history.

Obama has blamed George Bush, the Congress, and now the rich for destroying the economy and jobs; but he has carefully omitted the fact that the huge bloc of voters between the ages of 18 to 29 has had a 12.8% unemployment rate since he took office, and there is no relief in sight. This is the largest group of supporters he had in 2008. Not mentioning this fact worked toward his re-election.

If Obama outright lies and/or lies by omission but the media doesn't report it, is it still a lie?

Funny how it works like that. It goes up and down.......EVERYDAY!
Chatter: righties here say stop all unemployment comp? "Make them work" huh? They can't find jobs. Should they literally starve in between jobs?
That's why Obama the genius borrows now at 1.6% interest rate, long term, he knows we can't turn our backs on the economy and the people.
Borrow now for things we need now. Pay it back when this economy hits full throttle: real soon!
LOL!

FULL THROTTLE: REAL SOON!

THAT is a knee-slapper.

Were all the solutions put on hold for the second term?

It would take a huge change in the White House Press to have actual reporters willing to ask important questions. The idiots in there now usually just sit and wet themselves when Obama enters the room. It's really a pathetic site, when it's not just comical.
Of course most of the questions they ask are only for the Obama administration's usual "news" sources such as MSNBC, CNN, SNL, Comedy Channel, and the Onion News. If it works for them they figure they have done a good job reporting really important stuff. Their audiences agree!
So as long as Obama is in the White House you can count on the same worthless and very rare press conferences.
I would be happy if they just put a limit to how long he can ramble on after each one going on about crap and never even answering the actual question that was ask. At least he might have to face more than a handful of questions then.

I assumed people wanted a president who would bring back jobs and manufacturing and who had the qualifications to fix this mess.
But when an incumbent president promises free stuff to the same people he made victims of his big government ideology and liberal women get another wild hair about preserving the killing of their unborn, I assumed wrongly.
Ask Hillary about the lengths to which this administration's campaign will go to deceive and to get their way. Even if it means turning on their own. She was mad as a hornet in 2008.
Here see for yourself.

Hillary: "Shame on YOU, Barack Obama!!"
She was really pissed about Obama's lying in the campaign. And she's one of their own! Just imagine how Romney must have felt.
You blather on here about the President's 'gifts' to the poor, minorities, youth, and women - and COMPLETELY disregard the fact that Romney was attempting to 'gift' the uber-wealthy with yet another tax cut, and fewer regulations on their money-shuffling activities.

You're a sad, obsessive, little fraud, carol, and your jabs at the President are couched in your own failure to recognize both sides of this coin.

So your answer is to spend money that we don't have.
Yeah .. thats a good plan. NOT
Putting money with those who will put it back into the economy is a much better plan than giving it to those who hide it in Swiss, Cayman Islands, or Bermuda bank accounts...where did all those billions you guys wasted on ads for Mittler and Munster go? Murdock in Australia?

<quoted text> As a typical libtard you neglect that actions have consequences. Just how many rich people do you think would flee the blue states taking their money and business with them realizing that will be solely responsible for taking care of the moochers? Also how many moochers will flee the red states to the blue states when they realize the mooching is over there? That's the problem with libtards they never think of the unintended consequences.
You do realize that if you Red State morons left that there would be a lot fewer "moochers" for the Blue States to take care of.

The Red State Moochers would not be allowed to cross the border into our new country. If they did, they would be illegals.

That's the problem with Flacktards, they really don't think at all.

Who is paying people not to work?
Are you favoring to end unemployment compensation & welfare & food stamps?
You realize, oh wait, you don't realize, that if we did end all that spending today on unemployment, food stamps & welfare that it put thousands out of work and hurt our economy?
The best way to reduce those items is to help us recover by creating jobs.
Unemployment Compensation is temporary benefit which, by the way, is taxed.
Untaxed Welfare and Food Stamp benefits are a lifestyle.

I think that one has slunk off into obscurity - will probably return as 'Nematode' or something equally unobtrusive.

Example.
Obama wants to end the Bush Tax cuts to the Wealthy.
This would send the top rate from 35 to 39 1/2%.
The Republicans want no elimination of the tax cut - I.e. 0% increase.
Now, what would be a compromise?
a) a 2 1/4% increase
b) a phase in of a percent a year
c) No increase.
The Republicans say c.
I have news, that isn't a compromise.
Obama said that complete return to pre Bush rates is not a red line on the sand.
So who will compromise?
This standoff on the fiscal cliff is hurting our country & our economy.
The Republicans learned nothing from their recent asskicking. They think obstruction & allowing this country to suffer makes them look good.
I have news, it makes them lose elections.
Right, the government that raises taxes, thrives. What'll be your next step when all this "fairness" doesn't do squat for the economy? Will you reason, "Obviously, we didn't raise taxes enough, people still have savings accounts." Obama's already saying the $250k threshold won't work - kinda like his constituents, huh.

Hi idiot!

Remember we had 8 million jobs lost and GDP down hard and housing down the hardest ever. Your guys were in charge of that. Bush/Cheney. Borrowed $5 Trillion and doubled the debt. Ruined the place.

So look where we are now: GDP UP. JOB GROWTH UP. HOUSING UP. BUILDERS BUILDING AGAIN. ETC....

This thing is primed for full throttle. Low interest rates. What's missing? Confidence. Right whiners throw water on the fire of recovery. Made a deal to not help the president fix things in term one! A deal against the people! And still things are UP! Imagine if your blow hards would have played ball instead of crying and whining like the little beotches they are!

Term two will they still block and whine?

Hurricane Sandy was created by The Weather Channel (which is owned by Bain Capital) to disenfranchise black voters along the east coast. I though everybody was aware of that.
