Barack Obama, our next President

The truth is always consistent and unwavering. It's why Obama and democrats get stuck between that same old rock and a hard place.
Americans saw the truth.

they re-elected Obama.

The Replliclowns got stuck between a rock and a hard place - again.

With Hillary up next, you'll likely never see an 'R' Presdent again in your lifetime!!

What delightful thought.

Dick Armey: GOP Candidates Lost Because They Said ‘Stupid Things’
Former FreedomWorks president Dick Armey said Monday that a number of Republican candidates lost in November because they "did dumb things" and lacked the proper schooling and support from Republican leaders. Alluding to Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock, Armey told "CBS This Morning" the Senate candidates lost because they said "stupid things on a subject that their party's leaders should have schooled them to stay away from in the first place."
somebody got schooled.

Republicans looking to reach out to Latinos may want to avoid the advice of Ann Coulter.

The conservative pundit penned a column Wednesday in which she lashed out at the “deluge of unskilled immigrants pouring into the country” and portrayed Latinos as a lazy “underclass” looking for a government handout. Coulter titles the piece “America Nears El Tipping Pointo,” presumably to make a virtue of her ignorance of the Spanish language.

In fact, Latinos use less than their fair share of government benefits. According to a study released this year by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities:

Non-Hispanic whites accounted for 64 percent of the population in 2010 and received 69 percent of the entitlement benefits. In contrast, Hispanics made up 16 percent of the population but received 12 percent of the benefits, less than their proportionate share -- likely because they are a younger population and also because immigrants, including many legal immigrants, are ineligible for various benefits.

Coulter implies in her piece that non-whites are “nitwits who deserve lives of misery and joblessness.” She singles out immigrants from Latin America as particularly “nitwitty,” saying they have too many babies out of wedlock, without citing a published source for the assertion.

Philly's last-minute show of Romney support
Good news for Mitt Romney! Contrary to early vote counts, based solely on computerized returns from Philadelphia's voting machines, he did not get blanked in 59 of the city's 1,687 voting divisions.
A groundswell of support among people voting by absentee and provisional ballots reduced the number of divisions where Romney received zero votes to 50.
In addition, the certified results show 99 divisions where Romney was supported by exactly one voter.
Romney encounters pushback on education ideas at urban charter school
Outside the school where Romney's campaign bus was parked, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and District Attorney Seth Williams held a press conference in front of about 50 sign-waving Obama supporters organized by the Obama campaign. Nutter was dismissive of Romney's record as governor, pointing to teacher layoffs and education budget cuts during his tenure. "Romney's Massachusetts record is not a model for a nation," Nutter said. "We can't afford wrong-way Romney."
Williams said he had not invited Romney to the neighborhood. "I am glad the Republican candidate has come to West Philadelphia," Williams said, "but instead of just talking at the school and getting back on his huge bus, he should come out, he should walk 60th Street" to understand "real Americans" who live in urban America.
Oh, I thought they were "sceered" to vote cuz a the black panther

I'm sure Obama would be highly interested in the reaction of the right wing 'media' to his visit to a black neighborhood.

the video would be purposely misinterpreted on FOX for weeks. Rush would be talking about how Obama hates white folks. and so on....

and if Obama never ever visited a white neighborhood he would be getting the same reaction.

you have to be somewhat mindful of your actions when 20% of the population are batshit crazy.

<quoted text>It's not unusual in that section of Philly and parts of certain other large cities. As I said, in 57 of those same divisions, McCain got zero votes__not a single one.
You pal Sean Hannity was corrected on air about his story. and he sloughed off fact in favor of his fiction. Have you ever been to South Philadelphia Carol?
It's case closed for all but the insane.
Remember this?

Even though he never made even one campaign stop in Palm Beach County, Mr. Buchanan, the Reform Party candidate, finished with 3,704 votes in the staunchly Democratic county -- nearly 2,700 more than Mr. Buchanan received in any of Florida's other 66 counties

So, what did Obama do "prior to and during the storm"?
The President cannot call out the National Guard without a request from the Governor.
Mre ignorance from Nobraina.

No wonder why you nitwits can't win elections, you don't know anything about US Law!!

"The National Guard serves a dual role. Most of the time, it’s under the control of individual states, with the state governor acting as commander in chief. However, the president can activate the National Guard and place it under federal control. When this occurs, guard units are used to supplement the regular Army, bolstering its forces with additional combat units.

When the president federalizes National Guard troops, they can be used in domestic emergencies much like they are used in state emergencies. However, they are not limited to use within their home state. For example, National Guard units from numerous states were used to aid in Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.""


You seem to enjoy apearing stupid. Just like Carol. I'm gla I can correct your ignorant and incorrect thinking.

Now you can accuse me of being Tenzing again. Anyone smarter than you is Tenzing in you tiny mind. He's left quite a bootprint on your forehead!!

No pot shots, just facts. Facts something you know nothing about, you are BS. To date know one has given an intelligent answer as to why any American should pay a higher Federal Income tax rate than some one else. That's like saying pro0perty taxes should be leveled based on one's income, or sales taxes should be higher on those who earn more.
Do you ever think before you post.
I'm sure it will fly right over your demented head, Ed.

Have your nurse read it for you while she's changing your bedpan.

"Conservatives have two central tenets in their tax reform agenda. The first is to simplify the tax code by eliminating tax expenditures – government spending through the tax code – that come in the form of deductions and exemptions. The second is to move from a progressive income tax to a flat income or consumption tax. But conservative politicians often conflate these goals, suggesting that "simple" and "flat" are one in the same. Tax expenditures are what complicates the tax code, not progressive rates. While we should aim to eliminate expenditures, especially those that benefit those who are relatively well off, progressive tax rates are justified economically and morally for these reasons:

Efficiency. What is the optimal amount of public goods and services the government should provide? If the government creates a rule that says everyone must pay an equal share of their income, revenue will be restricted to the rate that the lowest earning workers can afford to pay.

Consider the case of a married couple with drastically different earnings. One spouse earns $40,000 per year, while the other earns $400,000 a year. If the couple goes Dutch, they will restrict their shared consumption. However, if the couple adopts a rule that the higher earning spouse pays more, then they can enjoy a higher level of shared consumption. This means they will consume a better house, better car, and better lifestyle.

Happiness. Advocates of progressive taxation often say “Rich people can afford to pay more.” What they really mean is that $100 means more to a person making $5,000 a year than it does to a person making $500,000 a year. This means that allowing poor people to keep a larger share of their income will result in a happier society than making everyone pay the same rate.

Justice. If people deserved most of their income, there would be a good case that they should be able to keep it. However, people don’t morally deserve their income because almost everyone’s income results largely from factors beyond their control. For example, the poorest Americans are richer in absolute terms than the richest Indians. This isn’t because Americans are that much more hardworking than Indians, but because Americans have access to a superb set of institutions and a grand scale of specialization and trade within our borders.

The knowledge and technology we have that allows us to be rich is the result of a multi-millennia human project and social cooperation. Other factors — such as our genes, parents’ income, our order of birth, year of birth, and even month of birth — have enormous impact on our future earnings.

Because people don’t morally deserve their income, it means that society can fairly ask the wealthy to pay more. Doing so allows us to produce more public goods and services that benefit everyone, while creating a more happy and just society than if we asked everyone to pay the same. But, we still need to be concerned about incentives. We don’t want to make rates so progressive or so high that they make it unattractive for people to be productive. Fortunately, this is an empirical question, and all the evidence suggests that the wealthiest among us are doing quite well, and their lot is improving."


That's why, for over 100 years, both Republiclowns and Democrats have agreed that a progressive tax system is a better way for all taxpayers.

Besides, Hillary will be 69 years old in 2016, and already appears a little long in the tooth.
Same age Reagan was. DUH

And Hillary doesn't have alzheimers, as Reagan did from the day he took office.

PS: I have to note you have no reason their should be a difference American's pay on their incomes. For me a flat tax, the same for all, no deductions.
Stay stupid, Ed. It's about all you have left.
