"Deceipt" spelled correctly or incorrectly has the same meaning.

Why don't we know anymore about what happened in Benghazi than we did in the first few days following the tragedy and why al Qaeda was scratched off the CIA report leading to Rice and Obama giving the American people as well as the UN misleading information two weeks later?

Why didn't all of the promises Obama made never come to fruition?

Why was the promise of immigration reform not a done deal when he had a democrat-controlled congress for two years?

Why was the promise that Obamacare wouldn't cost taxpayers one thin dime contradicted by the CBO in the millions?

Why was the promise of not running a second term if he didn't fix unemployment below 8% not fulfilled?

Why was the promise of a nearly trillion dollar stimulus with nothing to show for it a pie-in-the-sky dud?

These are only the most obvious. The "deceipt" runs deeper than this.

Liberals/Democrats are not serious about solving this Financial Crisis again Reid still playing politics!!

Reid blocks Senate vote on Obama's deficit-reduction plan not surprise this is same senate that’s failed to pass a budget in the past Four Years!! Reid, objected to McConnell’s suggestion, Reid claim McConnell wanted to attach Russian trade bill, HR 6156 to Obama’s deficit-reduction plan McConnell added that he'd be happy to have a stand-alone vote on the president's plan rather than attaching it to legislation as an amendment!! Reid show some Leadership and put it up for a Vote!!

'The Fiscal Cliff'
10:28AM EST December 6. 2012 - President Obama does some kitchen table campaigning on Thursday, visiting a family in Northern Virginia to sell his tax plan designed to head off the "fiscal cliff."
The president plans to stress the fact that, unless he and Congress agree to a deal over the George W. Bush-era tax cuts, all of them disappear at the end of the year, and all Americans face higher taxes.
Officials did not identify the family Obama will visit, but said one of its members sent an e-mail to the White House "about how paying $2,200 more in taxes next year would impact them if Congress doesn't act."
THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT ARE GOING TO PAY HELL FOR THIS
IS THE MIDDLE CLASS!!THE POOR PEOPLE AND RICH PEOPLE ARE ON WELFARE!!!!!YES THE RICH
Solar scam on taxpayers, and the rich get richer
by James Sandefer on Oct. 22, 2011, under Politics
The Wall Street protestors seem to have overlooked an obvious scam on themselves, the latest solar ploy planned and implemented by some of Washington’s heavy hitter insiders.
As a reminder, Solyndra (a subsidiary of California-based SolarReserve and part of the Pacific Solar Group/PCG), recently went belly up, as in bankruptcy (they received $535 million in loans from the feds), even after receiving a huge government subsidy for their solar operations. The good news is that the top echelon of the defunct business didn’t lose a cent in the deal and actually came out way ahead on the failure, but 1,100 employees didn’t fare so well after opening their surprise pink slips. Who’d have imagined….
But never fear, the feds are here, and the latest solar charge is being led by none other than “The rich are evil…” Harry Reid along, his curiously quiet cohort Nancy Pelosi, and the perpetual campaigner and fund raiser, President Obama. This time its Tonopah Solar, a company conveniently located in Harry Reid’s state of Nevada, is getting a $737 million loan from the Department of Energy. If you simply listen to the hype you’d think it was one of the most creative, cost effective, worthwhile solar project to date, but let’s turn the page and take a look at some additional facts. And before anyone immediately begins refuting this data please keep in mind that it was released by the Department of Energy last week.
Part two of this cut and paste job is inaccurate__bullsht actually. Solyndra was not a subsidiary of SolarReserve or any other company but was a stand alone manufacturer of what could have been a valuable alternative to silicon solar panels.

Tonopah Solar is not a manufacturer but an in progress solar field/power plant being developed in the Nevada desert (Crescent Dunes) by Solar Reserve, NV power and others.

No one is complaining about paying their fair share of taxes. The tax system is broken like everything else in government.

The Democrats have no problem with that. It's going to have to get pretty bad before it gets better. If it's not too late.

Liar.
The government funding to Planed Parenthood goes to their preventative services.
"real dumb"
You are dense. Planned Parenthood has a budget for preventive services. When the government gives them money to fund that, they then take dollars originally ticketed for preventive services and use it for their murder/abortion activities. A simple bookkeeping procedure.

Spoken by a person who thinks there is only one government. My property taxes pay for those buses. My gas taxes pay for those roads. The defense of this country is in the constitution. You should read it sometime. ALL THIS OTHER BS IS NOT. Return to the constitution and put the power back in the hands of the people and the states. Cut out all the other bs.

Think you're supposed to have some promises kept before winning again on nothing but broken promises.

You lost might as well face the fact that America reelected President Obama.

Both sides agree the wealthy will pay more, so now fiscal cliff talks come down to how much Republicans can wring out of the White House in return for giving in on taxes.

Absolutely! And that's why I decided to get a 2nd job that actually allows me to work from home. I found it while surfing the web one day and came across a site that does all the leg work for you as far as making sure the companies are legit. I bought the listing for $1 and now I'm making $18/hr from home. Can't beat it. And I love it! The site was www.homebusinessjoys.com

Today's Q poll shows Obama approval rating at 53%, the highest it's been in over 3 years. Also the public trusts the Dems to solve the fiscal cliff problem over the Reps by a wide (18pt) margin.

How much of the road did your taxes actually buy? How many school buses? How much of your children's education will your taxes actually cover? What keeps your bank from just keeping your money? Who provides for that hospital down the street? I guess your tax dollars do all of that. Who patrols your neighborhood? When the next hurricane goes through & demolishes your house, who will come to help?

Maybe each & every entity should look it up & see if their services are covered in the Constitution before they provide that education, healthcare, transportation system, protection, & safe commerce system. All of these are supported by the federal government.

Absolutely! That's the reason I became an internet whore and went ahead with the sex-change operation. It's soooooo much better "down there" now that my hairy, smelly balls are gone. Now there's just a nest little incision concealing the flaps of skin which used to be my glans! I'm so happy! Now I can make $45/hr at home and after I give "Beaver" his cut I have enough for medicine in the wonderful health care system of ours! I'm soooo proud to be an American! I know you are too, so if you're healthy, call 1 888 IMA HORE!
