Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Let all the tax cuts expire and cut military spending, do everything the bi-partisan commission recommended.
Let's do this.
Anyone else with me on this?
Homer makes his bones as a certified Obamabot.

Truth is that the "fiscal cliff" would be better than a token tax increase combined with inflated spending.

When you tax an economic activity at higher rates, such as capital gains and/or dividends, you will see less of that activity.
Some validity here.
Wealthy can afford tax attorneys and avoid most taxes.

Ok, will do. I find it amazing that they're still kicking and screaming about the healthcare bill even though it is the law of the land now and will happen regardless. Our Gov. Scott has until Dec 15 to set up the exchanges and get the federal funds to implement Obamacares; he's still stalling. Who will suffer? The poor people.
Re the fiscal cliff; let it happen.
If the governor sets up the exchanges, then the taxpayers of Florida will suffer.

It worked great until your hero GW Bush.
My God, you freaking idiots think that the tax system did all of this? Created the recession?? Wrecked the economy?
Obama voters are those shoppers that were waiting for the doors to open on Black Friday. They were rudely oblivious to their neighbors and didn't give a sh!t about trashing the store. Everyone else stood back and watched as they scrambled, tooth and nail, for the Black Light Special. No one could/can believe that these people, these 'bargain hunters' are the people actually running this country, it's almost too depressing to believe.

Yes I know. Saw a poster the other day that sums it up perfectly. Was a picture of a snake swallowing it's own tail. Below the picture it said "A nation Trying To Tax It's Way To Prosperity Yeah, It's That Kind Of Smart"

The American people already have the best medical care in the world, at least until Obamacare denies that care.
We all understand that Obama prefers to go over the cliff, increasing taxes for everyone and slashing defense spending, a leftwing dream.
NAH, THA'S NOT TRUE, JOHN. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CAIN'T EVEN AFFORD MEDICAL CARE OR AIN'T YOU BEEN PAYIN' ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU YOUSELF BEEN SAYIN'? WHAT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE GOT IS A TWO OR THREE TIERED MEDICAL SYSTEM BASED - SURPRISE, SURPRISE - ON MONEY AND GREED.

Not if the tax rate is 40%, which would be necessary to cover Obama spending.
23% Getting rid of the IRS by passing the fair tax would cause the greatest economic boom this country has ever seen. The revenue from that economy would be massive.

He won swing state voters because of the way he "handled" Hurricane Sandy...according to CNN.

He won because Romney decided to play it safe when, just the day before Sandy made landfall, Gallup and Rasmussen had him ahead by a 5 and 4 point lead respectively. Source posted last night.

He won because the liberal machine had a methodical method of getting democrat voters to the polls.

He won because too many people had been brainwashed with too many negative Obama campaign ads.

He won because enough voters had reservations about Romney's Mormonism.

Basically, Obama won because he's the luckiest person on the planet.

All polls showed a signficant majority believed we were on the wrong track right up until the day of the election.

PYONGYANG (The Borowitz Report)—North Korean leader Kim Jong-un surprised Korea-watchers today by abruptly cancelling his nation’s controversial rocket test and launching a fragrance instead.

The dictator’s signature fragrance, called “Number Un,” could be on store shelves in time for Christmas, according to the Korean Central News Agency.


The decision to launch a fragrance rather than a rocket “shows a kind of realism that has been rare in the Kim family,” said North Korea expert Dr. Hiroshi Kyosuke, of the University of Tokyo.

“I think Kim Jong-un most likely said to himself,‘Given how badly my last rocket did, maybe I’ll just launch a fragrance,’” he said.

The official North Korean announcement offered this description of the new fragrance:“Number Un deliriously combines the sweet smells of North Korea’s native unicorns with the irresistible aroma of our Dear Leader himself. This holiday season, every kiss begins with Kim Jong-un.”

Are you in the libertarian wing or the right to life wing of the GOP?
Peace
Fiscal conservative versus social conservative is a much better description.

If Demos/Tenzing/Nucular is any indication, libertarians favor taxing as much as necessary to balance the budget. Conservatives prefer to reduce spending as much as necessary to balance the budget.

Oh please Carol.
He lost because of the 47% video showed the American people who Romney really is.
He lost because he supported the two rape candidates.
He lost because of his immigration stance
He lost because he didn't show his tax returns
He lost because he's the biggest liar that ever ran for President.

Many companies may decide to retain earnings instead of paying dividends that will be taxed at inflated rates. They have already paid their 2013 dividends in advance, some borrowing money at low interest rates to do so. Just one example of how Obama policy hurts the economy.

Similarly, investors will sit back instead of realizing capital gains that will be taxed at inflated rates.

You don't need to be wealthy or have a tax attorney to figure that out.
