Barack Obama, our next President

However, your figure about the cost Medicare Part D was off the charts. The CBO estimated the cost at $724 billion. A far cry from $7 trillion.
Obamacare will cost $1.7 trillion. A far cry from $724 billion.
Obama increased the deficit by $6 trillion under his watch which exceeded Bush's entire 8 years.
The numbers always stack up against Obama far more than Bush. As much as some would like to believe otherwise.
Obamacare does so much more, Carol. You are saying how much cheaper your trailer is compared to my 4 bedroom home.

The majority of that Part D cost is added to the deficit. The Obamacare costs are not.

Most Americans say that employers -- even religious ones -- should provide birth control coverage to their employees, according to a survey released on Monday (Dec. 3).

The poll by LifeWay Research also showed that almost two-thirds of Americans (63 percent) believe businesses should be required to provide the coverage for free, even if contraception conflicts with the owner's religious ethics.

Petraeus for president? Fox’s Ailes seemed to like the idea

""Fox News chairman Roger Ailes wanted Gen. David Petraeus to run for president in 2012.

Ailes, former campaign adviser to Richard Nixon, sent a Fox News contributor to Afghanistan in the spring of 2011 to deliver the message to Petraeus, the Washington Post's Bob Woodward reports. The recently disgraced director of the Central Intelligence Agency was then commander of U.S. and allied forces in Kabul.

Kathleen T. McFarland, the contributor, and a former national security and Pentagon aide, spoke with Petraeus for 90 minutes in the general's office there. Woodward obtained an audio recording of the conversation, which was posted on the Post's website.

"[Ailes] loves you, and everybody at Fox loves you," McFarland told Petraeus at one point.

Near the end of their conversation, McFarland relayed the message from Ailes: If President Obama offered Petraeus the job of chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, take it. "If you're offered anything else," McFarland said, "don't take it. Resign in six months and run for president. Okay?"And I know you're not running for president," McFarland added. "But at some point when you go to New York next, you may want to just chat with Roger. And Rupert Murdoch, for that matter."

"Well, Rupert's after me, as well," Petraeus replied. "Look, what I have told people is, I truly want to continue to serve my country if it is in a, you know, a quite significantly meaningful position. And there's all of about two of those in the world. You all have really got to shut your mouths—or shut your ... yeah, shut your mouths, too."

"I'm only reporting this back to Roger," McFarland assured Petraeus. "That's our deal."

Petraeus said he would consider the position of Joint Chiefs chairman and possibly "one other" post, "but that's about it. I'm not going to, you know, go to NATO meetings for the rest of my life, or fight service budget battles or anything like that," he said.

Petraeus was appointed CIA director in September 2011. He resigned last month after admitting to an extramarital affair with Paula Broadwell, his biographer.

Ailes confirmed to Woodward that he did give McFarland advice to deliver to Petraeus, but it was meant in jest.

"It was more of a joke, a wiseass way I have," Ailes said. "I thought the Republican field needed to be shaken up and Petraeus might be a good candidate. It sounds like she thought she was on a secret mission in the Reagan administration. She was way out of line.... It's someone's fantasy to make me a kingmaker. It's not my job."

<quoted text>You right wing morons just can't wrap your heads around the concept of return on investment. Let's put it more concretely . I f you spend money on a fancy entertainment center for your home then that money you've spent will not give you any return for the few hours a week you actually use it. If you take that same money and invest in energy efficient appliances , more efficient windows or insulation then you realize savings in your energy bills. If a company spends money on redecorating executive offices it doesn't add anything to the bottom line but if they put that money into more machinery and/or more employees it brings more revenue as a result of improved productivity.
Tax cuts, two wars and Medicare part D didn't add anything to the GDP. The Bush tax cuts for the top 5% cost $11.6 million every hour of every day and contrary to GOP dogma haven't added any jobs as a result.
costoftaxcuts.com/about/
The war in Iraq cost $3 trillion and the only thing we got in return was over 4000 service people coming home in body bags and tens of thousands more maimed both bodily and emotionally who need to be cared for years to come at taxpayer expense.
www.washingtonpost.com › Opinions
Medicare part D was a sop to Big Pharma and resulted in seniors paying more for their medications and again increased the deficit with no return to GDP.
www.forbes.com/.../republican-budget-hypocris... ...
Why is it that deficits are only a problem when a Democrat is in the White House?
And you believe that Zimmerman killed Trayvon just because he is black!!!

And Obama did not closer oil production in the gulf nor killed the oil pipeline from Canada and he has nothing to do with the high price of gas!!!

See? You think you are smart but you are a liberal instead!!

High gas prices hurts companies bottoms line, less hiring, more expenses, nothing in return because of Obama's policies against oil!!!

Solar panels and expensive efficiency windows can not make up for Obama's incompetent policies that bring the price of oil high!!!

During Bush there were liberal media interviewing the pain of paying $2.00 a gallon at a gas station. Where are they now at $4.00 a gallon?

Nowhere thereby confirming that we conservatives are right because the liberals are hypocrites!!

Does the GOP need a religious retreat?

""It's no surprise that Florida Sen. Marco Rubio took heat for an interview he gave to GQ magazine this month: Departing from scientific consensus, the rising Republican star refused to state whether the Earth is billions of years old or a few thousand, as many fundamentalist Christians believe.

What no one expected was the rebuke from televangelist and longtime Christian conservative leader Pat Robertson, dismissing theories of a "young Earth."

"If you fight science, you are going to lose your children," Robertson said last week during an appearance on the Christian Broadcast Network, the television empire he founded three decades ago.

Robertson wasn't directly speaking to Rubio, but the senator and others in his party might heed the advice. Viewed by many voters as anti-science and too conservative on social issues such as gay marriage, the Republican Party is in danger of losing young and less religious voters for years to come.

In a post-election breakdown by the Public Religion Research Institute, the Obama religious coalition mirrors the demographics of 18-29 year olds, whereas Romney's mirrors those of voters aged 65 and up.

On Nov. 6, as President Barack Obama won a narrow but clear victory over Mitt Romney, voters in four states expressed support for gay marriage. Anti-abortion candidates lost in several states, including Senate contenders Todd Akin of Missouri and Richard Mourdock of Indiana, both of whom stirred outrage from their remarks on rape.

Many experts believe these developments point in part to a decisive shift in the religious makeup of the country, one that could make or break a GOP comeback.

"The way Republicans speak is turning off the youngest, fastest growing groups in the country—Latinos and significantly, the unchurched, those with no religious affiliation," said Mark Rozell, a public policy professor at George Mason University who studies religion and politics. "To them, the Republicans are proselytizing."

Since the 1980s, organizations like Focus on the Family, the Moral Majority and the Christian Coalition cemented religious conservatives as visible and potent force in the Republican coalition and enforced discipline on social issues such as abortion and gay rights. But now, the religious landscape is changing beneath their feet.

Studies suggest the number of unchurched has doubled in the past two decades and shot up by 25 percent in the last four years. The shift has taken place across the country and across economic classes, most notably among the young; one fifth of adults and one third of Americans under thirty now declare themselves religiously unaffiliated.

The new and expanding group of unchurched voters overwhelmingly support same sex-marriage and legal abortion, and so they gravitate toward the Democratic Party.

"It's clearly a concern—we have a lot of work to do," said Gary Marx, executive director of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, which worked to boost turnout among Catholics and evangelical voters.

The group, founded by conservative Christian activist Ralph Reed, helped deliver more religious voters to the polls this year than in 2008, but such efforts couldn't deliver a Romney victory.

In a press release following the election, Reed acknowledged that minorities and the young—and therefore, he might have added, the unchurched—made the difference for Obama.""

Pretty sad when Pat Robertson sees the stupidity in the Republiclown's embrace of silly things like 'Creationism', but Republiclown leaders think it's a good idea to deny science with 'make believe' nonsense.

Oh yeah, God left all those dinosaur bones around to test your faith!!

November was the best month for auto sales in the US since January 2008. The Detroit three all showed increases with Chrysler leading the way with a 14% gain over last year. The Asians also showed gains with Honda sales improving a whopping 38% over last November.
Obviously Obama's reelection bolstered consumer confidence.
Hurricane Sandy also had something to do with car sales in November.

Gunner's back!! Too big a coward to come back as himself,he's hiding behind a sockpuppet.

There was nothing in the post you responded to about teens and contraceptives. It concerned the belief that most Americans hold that access to Birth Control is part of any standard health care plan.

Americans voted against using numbers as a measuring stick. Otherwise, the dismal 'recovery' happening in spite of Obama and high unemployment would have mattered when they voted. But they were more into style than substance.

It is sad for America, because Obama won the election because and ONLY because culture trumps politics. And our culture is in the decline because of the progressive agenda promoted by the main stream media and the entertainment industry.

The November election was just a battle, the transformation of America is a war and one that is killing the two parent family, patriotism, individual rights INCLUDING freedom of speech and personal responsibility. In its place, those with a work ethic and who love God & country are diminished and ridiculed.

You see evidence of that on a daily basis here on Topix with sexual content and filthy language used to debate logic and presented as though the posters are enlightened and sophisticated. When you know that they are clueless and classless.

You fail to mention that Bush's Medicare Drug Plan was a giant gift to drug companies.

He failed to allow the Gov't to negotiate prices paid for drugs, making the programfar more expensive than it needed to be.

Who negotiates for drkug prices?? The VA and Medicaid programs. Both proven to have saved taxpayers Billions by negotiating for the best price.

Once again, Dubya gave a giant gift to his wealthy sponsors.

You really don't get it, do you?? After all these years, you still don't get it!!

He also supports the PBS, which allows unmonitered material on television and onto our children, as well as having biased news articles unchecked. He is allowing the DREAM act bill, which allows illegal immigrant children to progress and take peoples jobs and damage america. He also allows murderous abortion, as well as condoms which is decreasing our population, as well as encouraging more teens to have sex and increasing teen pregnancy. He is also allowing gay marriage, which will turn children into sexual deviants and gay converts, as well as destroy the american family.
More American abortions more Muslims take over!!!
