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 ...

The above is a dumb post. Why should I or anyone else pay a higher percentage of his income in Federal Income tax. Or a lower rate. Make it fair, we all pay the same rate. After all we are all equal.
Peace
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.
Regardless of whether taxes are raised on the wealthy; it won't affect the real scoundrels who avoid paying income tax; it will affect the people working for a salary who have no choice but to pay.
The wealthy will not ever allow a flat tax. You're focusing on the wrong end of the issue, as usual. It's easier to treat the poor with scorn; however, consider that a person making minimum wage of $8.00 more or less, paying 15% of that is ludicrous when they can barely support themselves without working a few more jobs on top of that.
Example: Boeing has not paid any corporate income taxes in 10 years, they have even filed negative returns even though they are profitable. Try to turn your attention on the big players.

You are riding high. What is it 4 BULLMANURE posts in a row. No facts, just lies from you. Grow up. Try to post something that makes sense and does not expose your hatred and bias.
Your hero, president nobama won, why do you not herald all his great accomplishments? Could it be because he has none? I hear nothing from you about,
- The ongoing high unemployment rate
- The fact that fewer and fewer American's pay any Federal Income tax
- Millions more American's on food stamps
- A passed health care bill that over 60% of American's dislike
- 6 trillion in additional debt
- Upcomming tax increases that will affect millions of Americans
- Looming inflation, particularly in food products
Peace
Because it's funny; that's why. Just picture stiff Mitt going to Paquaios dressing room and saying "Manny, I ran for President and lost" why did he do that? Talk about a buzzkill.

All of the above can't be solved by any one President in one day, so get the eff over it.

No white person, even Hillary, can win the Democrat nomination if a qualified person of color enters the race, particularly one seen as a surrogate for an Obama Third Term.
Besides, Hillary will be 69 years old in 2016, and already appears a little long in the tooth.
Reagan was 100 years old & senile.
She'll do just fine.
It's your Party that believes a token is the answer in idiotbox Rubio.
If Hillary runs, you're screwed and you know it.
You also know that Rove ruined your Party by turning it over to Evangelical nutjobs.

Mayor Cory Booker (D) said Sunday morning that he is weighing runs for both the New Jersey Governorship in 2013 and U.S. Senate seat in 2014. Speaking to Bob Schieffer on CBS’ Face the Nation, Booker said he’d decide “in the next two weeks” if he was running for Governor. Booker is “the biggest player” in New Jersey Democratic politics, as he is “the only Democrat in the state who can match Christie’s star power and fundraising prowess.”

<quoted text>We've discussed it on this thread for going on four years__the National Guard and looting came after the storm hit, Bush failed to respond prior to and during the storm.
Keep in mind that the storm struck three states and dozens of municipalities and BushCo failed them all.
You're wrong__you're always wrong__consistent though.
First of all you're comparing a category 1 hurricane hitting New Jersey to a category 5 hitting New Orleans that is below sea level.

The state government knew the levees were not capable of withstanding a hurricane 5 for years but shifted funds to reinforce them elsewhere.

And 95% of the tragedy of Katrina is due to the incompetence of preparations by Ray Nagin and Kathleen Blanco.

But please tell me what Obama did that Bush didn't that made any difference whatsoever.

Wish Hillary had won in 2008. Would have been a lot better than what we got and have again.

The Obama Machine went after Hillary the same lying way it went after Romney.

She was pretty p---ed off.

Remember when Bill said, "They pulled the race card on ME!!"

Florida is joining other states in opting out of certain provisions of Obamacare after the Supreme Court ruling.

Florida will opt out of spending approximately $1.9 billion more taxpayer dollars required to implement a massive entitlement expansion of the Medicaid program

Medicaid costs will grow even faster under ObamaCare and education funding will be affected adversely if Medicaid spending isn't controlled.

Florida will also opt out insurance “exchanges” that will result in higher insurance premium costs – more money out of the pockets of Florida’s families and businesses.

The Congressional Budget Office has said insurance premiums on state exchanges will increase another 10-13% under the rules of Obamacare. In states already operating insurance exchanges under similar rules, health care premiums are substantially more expensive.

I didn't predict anything. Not now or ever that I'm aware of.

I simply stated a fact. Obama doesn't know how to play nice with anyone except democrats who do his bidding without question.

Reagan was a man who was comfortable in his own skin, knew exactly what he believed and was the Great Communicator.

Obama acts senile sometimes already. And he's much younger than Reagan when he left office.

Also, Reagan wasn't diagnosed with Alzheimer's until five years after his presidency.

The proof is in the pudding over the Bush tax cuts. They were followed by a record 52 straight months of job creation, producing 8 million new jobs, with the unemployment rate falling to 4.4%. Business investment spending, which had declined for 9 straight quarters, reversed and increased 6.7% per quarter, producing all those new jobs.
Because of that increased investment, labor productivity soared by 2.5% annually from 2003 to 2007, higher than the averages of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s. As a result, real after tax income per capita increased by more than 11%.
Manufacturing output soared to its highest level in 20 years. The stock market revived, creating almost $7 trillion in new shareholder wealth. From 2003 to 2007, the S&P 500 almost doubled. After the Bush tax cuts started in 2001, quickly ending the 2001 recession, the economy continued to grow for another 73 months. From 2000 to 2007, real GDP grew by more than 17%, meaning an additional $2.1 trillion for the American people.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/peterferrara/2012...
I'll see your 8 million new jobs when Bush lowered the tax rate and raise you 22 million new jobs when Clinton raised the tax rates. I'll see your 2000 to 2008 record and raise you 1950 to 1970 that saw America's greatest growth when the top rates were 90% and 75%.

I wouldn't call saving Florida's taxpayers $1.9 billion that would be required to implement a massive entitlement expansion under Obamacare is punishing them.

Florida already has health care safety net programs for those with the greatest need, including assistance for families with incomes up to 133% of the poverty line, and Florida KidCare to ensure no child goes without health care in Florida.

Things taxpayers don't mind paying for. Wonder why other states didn't follow Florida's example.

You Repubs won't elect Reagan for dog catcher if he was running today. As Gov. of CA he put in place a total gun ban and as President raised America's debt 186%. The MOST ever by any President including Obama. He was the first President ever to sell America's debt to outside nations. He granted amnesty to millions of illegals. How so you think all that would go over today with Repubs? hahahahahahahhahahahahahhaha!! !!!!!!!!
