Barack Obama, our next President

If you look at the size of the union in their membership & financial responsibility, union heads do not make a high salary compared to other organizations of that similar size.
I didn't call them evil.
However, when we have CEOs making tens of millions while pushing employees to take pay cuts just to improve the bottom line, then yes, they are evil.
Did you notice that the director of the Red Cross makes $500,000?

this is how stupid you libs are:
the top 2/10 ths of 1% pay 22% of all taxes and the bottom 48% pay 2% OF ALL TAXES and you think raising taxes on the top 2/10ths of 1% by 4% is going to help a $1.3 trillion dollar deficit?
Put down the LSD
It will help by reducing it by 70 billion a year.

More than a 5% bite.

More that defunding planned parenthood.

More than defunding PBS

You are just as pathetic as "brown eyes". I too have criticized Michelle Obama, but I do so based on actual policy issues and her outragious spending while the country is in the economic disaster it is in, along with the amount of millions of unemployed American's.
To just criticize on appearance like you are doing Michelle Obama or make fun of someone that if she was in the opposite party she would be hailed as an example of what a strong, intelligent, wonderful parent and spokesperson she is as is the case with Ann Romney is a perfect example of true shallow moron you are.
Nice; however, Brown Eyes posted a joke and it wasn't vulgar. Comedians make fun of everyone and the joke about wearing two coats is pretty mild.
On the other hand, the poster rush is just a flat out sicko racist and only posts vulgarity.

May I ask you something? Do you ever do research for yourself?
Wall Street Journal - Obama's Dividend Assault: A plan to triple the tax rate would hurt all shareholders.
http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405297...
NEW YORK (CNNMoney)-- Eighteen CEOs urged Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner this week to rethink the Obama administration's proposal to raise the 15% tax rate on dividends and capital gains for high-income households.
A hike in investment tax rates "could spark a new wave of volatility in our financial markets and give a competitive edge to overseas corporations at a time when we need capital formation here in America to create jobs and expand our economy," the CEOs said in an opinion article for Politico.
http://money.cnn.com/2012/05/10/news/economy/...
May I ask you something?? Do you ever think for yourself??

Will your dividend rate go up?? Are you one of the CEO's who tried mightily to defeat Obama??

You're poor, you likely don't have investments, much less dividend paying stocks,if you have them, they're in hubby's 401K, and you don't pay taxes on income in a 401k.

Why does a poor person like you, maing $15 an hour, part time, care about taxes on wealthy folks??

Why do you ignorantly throw your lot in with rich folks? Hoping to get more cheap stuff they leave on the curb??

You make no sense at all, Carol. You stated you were willing to throw your husband under the bus concerning Medicare so rich people wouldn't have to pay more taxes.

Why are you so self loathing you kneel before the rich and take whatever scraps they throw to you?? Folks like your hero, sex deviate O'Reilly, worth $50 million.

You actively lobby against your own self interests. That's a definition of insanity.

And your daughter voted for Obama, laughing at you behind your back!!

Keep clinging to your lies Carol. No one is hysterical but you and your fellow wingnuts. Your desperation is all over the place.

Fox News makes good money telling people what they want to hear.

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/OTUS/born-keny...

The pamphlet itself was edited by Miriam Goderich who has since responded, saying it was her mistake. She replied in an email to Yahoo News:

You’re undoubtedly aware of the brouhaha stirred up by Breitbart about the erroneous statement in a client list Acton & Dystel published in 1991 (for circulation within the publishing industry only) that Barack Obama was born in Kenya. This was nothing more than a fact checking error by me — an agency assistant at the time. There was never any information given to us by Obama in any of his correspondence or other communications suggesting in any way that he was born in Kenya and not Hawaii. I hope you can communicate to your readers that this was a simple mistake and nothing more.

Sigh.

What say you? Comments? Questions? Aspersions to be cast at Homer?
I think that is a great idea, but does that mean he'll spend the next four years campaigning as much as he did the first four years?

This morning I heard more than a few negative comments about the 2013 FSA maximum being reduced to only $2500 for a family, because of ObamaCare. The comments were from Obama supporters, and I filed them under

Nobody can help you, Carol. Your ignorance is boundless.

But FDR would give Obama more than a run for his money. GM, AT&T, and most other unions came into being during the Great Depression.

The time when Americans realized the wealthy were ripping them off, and willing to let them live and die in poverty so the wealthy can make greater profits.

Not like today, when idiots like yourself support the rich in their exploiting of labor.

Hard times always bring ann increase in union activity. Don't look now, but even WalMart workers are looking to unionize, tired of being pawns with no rights.

You're too stubbornly blind to see that.

Besides, it's not healthy to act like you have cornered the market on things that remain a mystery and will always be so in our limited and finite understanding of the universe in the name of politics.
Jindal is entitled to his opinion. Much of what Romney said is true just by the numbers - who voted for Obama and why.
But he is right in that conservatives need to broaden their message to these same people. I believe it will happen on its own after a few more years.
Your party will probably go really far right now. If Romney had any conviction of his own, he would have claimed that Obamacares was his plan in Massachusetts and that he would implement it nationwide. He had to campaign against his own plan. Why?
Because of the corporations backing him. Why did he have to claim he hunts for small varmints when he probably never did so in his life? Pandering. If he had conviction; he would have said, no , I don't hunt and kill animals, I am against it.
The money has to come out of politics. The President stood on the side of the people and he won. Was it risky? Sure, but he did it, we the people did it against incredible odds.

That sort of ignorance explains why your side lost the election!!

Because Teabaggers are really stupid!!

How'd the FAUX ropaganda work for you?? Y'all nitwits were screaming that Romney was ahead, he had momentum.

But it was all FAUX lies, as proved on election night, when FAUXLand had a complete break with reality as they screamed that Romney had NOT LOST OHIO!!

Tell us again how wonderful FAUX ratings are.

Then tell us how correct they were in their predictions.

Even now, Romney is still whining about the 47%.

Let him visit the CEO's that dumped Billions into his race.

Obama will visit those who supported him, not those who worked mightily to defeat him.

Payback for these Kock scumbags will be a m-fer!!

I'm lovin' it!!
