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

Perhaps, when the spending is on the production of necessary goods and not merely a wealth transfer resulting in no productive activity, such as Obama's stimulus.
Could you explain that concept, and how such could apply to stuff like KEYSTONE as well, to Duh A Vey please?

Why waste their time in the Senate because the House wasted time passing bills they know won't pass. Wasting time for political gain.
Gee, I wonder if your party thought it was funny to waste time passing a "repeal the job killing health care bill"- knowing it would go nowhere - while Americans were suffering.
"real dumb"
You are dumb. You know damn well Majority Leader Reid would bring those bills passed by the house if he knew they would be shot down. He would love to have something to crow about. He does not allow a vote because they know the bills would pass.
"real dumb" do you practice stoopid or is natural in your life?

Clearly, Obama is determined to continue with the successful economic strategy that marked his first four years. With any luck, we can expect 8% unemployment and GDP growth of 1%.
If we are lucky.
12-13 percent unemployment in some areas!!

Those plant were opened and expanded due to goverment spending as they were the ones buying all the munitions/tanks/planes/ships, etc., think of it like stimulis spending you dumb backwood hillbilly.
Once all that was in place with people making a decent wage they were able to convert to automobiles, home goods etc as the workers could now afford these things and on we went my anal retentive friend.
The bottom line is the goverment made the initial investment, you stupid assclown.
I hope I've made myself clear you complete and total jackass.

REMEMBER this:
==========
The children's father, CNBC digital media executive Kevin Krim, was away on a business trip when the killings occurred.

The couple's apartment building sits in one of the city's most idyllic neighborhoods, a block from Central Park, near the Museum of Natural History and blocks from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The neighborhood is home to many affluent families, and seeing children accompanied by nannies is an everyday part of life there.

http://www.wthr.com/story/20205837/nyc-nanny-...

In Recognition of CNBC’s Kevin Krim and Family
While we were away at the Sedona conference, CNBC ran the story (1) of the Spire Law Group’s $43 trillion national home owners’ law suit alleging money laundering and racketeering. The next day the two daughters of CNBC executive Kevin Krim were killed, ostensibly by their nanny. Immediately following their murder, CNBC dropped the article.

It’s probable that everyone has read the story and we don’t need to repost it here.(2) It was reprinted all over the net once Alex Jones’ planet.infowars.com published it.(3)

But the murder of Krim’s two daughters, if it was carried out by the Illuminati, does remind us of the price that some people have paid for standing up for the truth. We tend to dismiss the mainstream media for capitulating to the cabal but we also tend to forget the price that some courageous journalists have paid for printing the real news.

Jon Huntsman: GOP Primary Barriers To Entry Were 'Pretty Damn Low'

His sharpest words were directed not to the future of the GOP but at the not-so-distant past. Huntsman described the Republican primary process as corrosive, producing pledge-signing, cookie-cutter candidates more interested in money and publicity than policy. Recalling one particular debate, Huntsman described the sensation he felt observing his fellow White House aspirants.

"Some do it professionally. Some were entertainers," he said of the Republican presidential field. "I looked down the debate stage, and half of them were probably on Fox contracts at one point in their career. You do that. You write some books. You go out and you sell some more. You get a radio gig or a TV gig out of it or something. And it's like, you say to yourself, the barriers of entry to this game are pretty damn low."

The last time Obama reformed an entitlement, you fricken morons went screaming through the streets how Obama gutted Medicare.
Make up your mind.
Today, Obama specifically called for tax increases prior to any discussion of spending cuts, indicating that he is not interested in a solution.

Mitt Romney can take some solace in his devastating loss on Nov. 6: at least he won the voters who really count.
That’s the thesis anyway of top adviser Stuart Stevens, who penned an op-ed in the Washington Post on Wednesday arguing that by winning wealthier and whiter voters, Romney secured the moral victory over Obama.
“On Nov. 6, Mitt Romney carried the majority of every economic group except those with less than $50,000 a year in household income,” Stevens wrote.“That means he carried the majority of middle-class voters. While John McCain lost white voters under 30 by 10 points, Romney won those voters by seven points, a 17-point shift.”
According to Stevens,“The Republican Party has problems, but as we go forward, let’s remember that any party that captures the majority of the middle class must be doing something right.” As a result,“Republican ideals — Mitt Romney — carried the day.”
The argument that poorer voters are inherently inferior seems to undercut the campaign’s central message over the last two years: that Romney’s top concern was providing jobs for the jobless. The unemployed Americans Romney highlighted in ads, speeches and photo-ops make under $50,000 a year almost by definition and campaign videos like the one below are jarring next to Stevens’ latest piece.
Stevens notably never mentioned jobs and unemployment in his op-ed, instead focusing on how Romney championed “the moral case for free enterprise and conservative economics.”
Unfortunately for Romney, poor and minority votes counted just the same as the allegedly superior votes Stevens favored. The result was an electoral college blowout for the president powered by strong turnout and margins among young voters, Latinos, African Americans, and women.
But Stevens had an explanation for that, too. Obama was “a charismatic African American president with a billion dollars, no primary and a media that often felt morally conflicted about being critical. How easy is that to replicate?”
http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/11/st...
So, Romney carried the voters who produce the goods and services and pay the taxes, while Obama carried the takers. That may be a winning strategy politically, but a disaster economically. In other words, a Pyrrhic victory.

Sooner or later the producers will tire of being slaves. Then the takers will resort to economic cannibalism.

You are ridiculous.

The current discussion is on taxes & in particular renewing the Bush tax cuts.
