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

You should be real careful who you call stupid.
Unemployment was 7.4% and 7.5% only 4 months out of Eisenhower's 8 year term.
During most of his presidency, it stayed roughly between the 4.5% to 6.0% range.

Republicans had better wake up and realize that their negotiations with the White House aren’t so much about how to avoid the looming “fiscal cliff” as they are about President Obama’s attempt to cement his historical legacy as a great liberal hero by forcing them to repudiate their anti-tax pledges.

Chrysler November sales up 14% vs 2011, GM up 6.5% and Ford 3.4%. Yay Detroit!

Ford and GM would be in better shape without slugish sales and cutbacks in Europe.

Ford has big plans for electrified vehicles both hybrid and plug in. Ford is also reinventing Lincoln or at least trying to__that might backfire unless the Lincoln in China venture bears fruit. The Lincoln Mercury badge seems to have run it's course in North America.

I'll ask you the the same question I have asked "real dumb".
Why should you pay a lower or higher tax rate than anyone else? You are special? You are better than the poor sap who busted his ass, produced?

Obama is a cross between Santa and Robin Hood - HoodSanta if you will. HoodSanta isn't going to do anything but watch from the wings - it is all he has ever done. While he is NOT "bringing everyone together" like he promised - he is also NOT going to stop the country from going off the fiscal cliff - while he is also NOT doing anything as Israel prepares to turn Iran into a parking lot - but only while he is NOT doing anything about Syria who is moving chemical weapons into place to use on their own people. These are the same chemical weapons that got moved to Syria from Iraq just before HoodSanta's namesake Hussein was removed from power - you know the weapons that did not exist.

He will just watch and look for someone to blame - maybe he can give a speech if someone will write one for him and load it in the prompter. What a hoax the handout demo has elected. Go Santa Go!

Can't recall the Hawkins guy but when I read Jimmy Carter and Hubert Humphrey, I went thumbs down and puked. What a useless combination. Reminds me of the Boy Messiah.

Raising taxes on the wealthy may not be a huge problem in itself, but neither is it a solution to anything.
This tax increase is nothing but red meat for the mob, like the guillotine in the French Revolution.
Meanwhile, massive Obama spending will drive the country deeper into debt, which will hurt the economy even more than any tax increase.
So, if Obama gets his tax increases and the economy still crashes, as it will, how will he blame the Republicans?
If the economy crashes, the Jerk-In-Chief will blame it on Hurricane Sandy, Syria, Benghazi and the those damned Republicans who waited too long to cave. Count on it that if he can't come up with a plausible excuse, David Letterman, the NY Times, Oprah and Vladimir Putin will come out to find excuses for him.

How Obama Shouldn’t Back Down Vs. the GOP

Elections are supposed to have consequences. So why does the GOP think it can strong-arm the president into compromising on entitlements without first giving in on taxes?

Even though Romney didn't think through his comment made in private and admitted the next day he was "dead wrong" about lumping the 47% who receive some kind of government subsidy with the much smaller percentage who manipulate the system, the point he was making to the small group of campaign contributors he was addressing - however broad-based - was that the 47% probably wouldn't vote for him because of being afraid of losing whatever government subsidies they receive - for whatever reason.
He obviously went too far lumping them altogether and admitted as such, but the reality of the 47% not voting for him was correct.
We have, in fact, become a nanny state. The problem, of course, is Obama couldn't be happier. The more the merrier. By continuing to stifle the private sector, there will be a lot of merriment in this White House.
"Vicious cycle" couldn't have a more clear meaning.
You need to read the transcript of what he said. He said the 47% pay no taxes. There is only one 47% in America that pay no taxes. 22% include those on SS and troops deployed. The gift takers.
