Barack Obama, our next President

"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 ... Full Story

See, this is the conflict of interest, i.e. racket, between unions and the democrats.
Unions elect democrats. Unions then sit down with newly elected democrats to demand more pay and benefits.
Does anyone else not see this quid pro quo pink elephant?
Big Money Republicans & corporate interest pay big money to elect Republicans & then get them to weaken the unions by passing "right to work for less" legislation.

Does anyone see this quid pro quo pink elephant?

The issue is that the Republican leaders who will be in charge in January are the Republican leaders who were directly complicit in the construction of the fiscal cliff and were directly complicit in getting us already to $16 trillion in national debt. Democrats are not to blame; both parties in Washington are.
Obsequious praise for small government does the Republicans no good when they too are in favor of big government in their actions. And having two leaders as the face of the party who have both been in Washington since 1986 does no good restoring credibility when these multi-decade residents of the swamp wink and smile that they really do think Washington is the problem.
Is it any wonder the American people have come to the conclusion that government isn’t so bad when the party of small government keeps expanding it too? The leaders of the party are the message, not the words. And the message does not resonate because they do not practice what they preach.
Until the Republicans change their message, they will keep losing. Changing the message means changing the men. Will 16 Republicans in the House be brave enough to stand up and say the party needs a new Speaker of the House?
This is not about the compromise. This is not about the fiscal cliff. This is not even about removing Amash, Huelskamp, Schweikert, and Jones. This is about beginning again anew — a process that cannot happen when the faces of the Republican leadership have been in Washington since 1986 expanding government while preaching the need for limiting it.

He's gotcha there, carol. "Right to work" works great for management, and does ZILCH for labor.

I've never belonged to a union in my life, but, having lived in carnelian red states for most of it, I do know that much.

What hype don't you believe?
The Feds stepping in to help the economy because of a "grave concern" over the high unemployment rate, warning Congress to avoid going over the cliff to prevent another recession in 2013?
Or Geithner telling ABC that Obama is absolutely willing to go over the fiscal cliff?
I'm not buying it. The rich do not want their temporary tax cuts to expire and they control the media. I'm with the president go with the recommendation from the bi-partisan commission which called for raising taxes and cutting spending, let's get 500+ billion off the deficit, it's a good start.

This may be the most concise summary of the 2012 Republican Presidential campaign strategy I've seen so far.

Good job.

Barack has a budget? Funny, I thought that's what everyone and their dog was still waiting for him to produce. Oh, wait, Congress has to VOTE on this here-now budget...so why aren't they? Voting? You know: that whole "yes or no" thing...

The "university president" fiasco has already proven you are a functional illiterate. Even faced with the cold, hard fact that negroes commit violent crime at a rate seven times higher per capita than the next highest ethnicity, all you can say is "racis"!! What on God's green earth would give you the idea I WANT hillblly, leftist psycho's like you to even TRY and comprehend facts and statistics (after you've consistently proven its beyond your meager mental capacity)?

UNIONS SHOW LOVE TO THE BLACK MAN Protesters Trash MI Hot Dog Stand, Call Black Owner “N-Word “
SMH. People ain’t sh*t…how they gonna call this man the “N-word” and “Uncle Tom” at the same damn time!!!

Via Examiner:

Joe Newby has already adequately conveyed the mayhem and level of incivility on display by members of big labor in Lansing following the state legislature’s passage on Tuesday of a right-to-work law. Joe focuses on a crowd of miscreants who assaulted FOX News contributor Steven Crowder and tore down a tent set up the conservative website Americans for Prosperity.

But a more revealing example of how the left comports itself when things don’t go its way is suggested by a story at the blog Ironic Surrealism, suggested in turn by reader JPeterman. According to the account, the union thugs didn’t just take out their frustration on outsiders, such as Crowder. They also went after locals like Clint Tarver, aka “The Hot Dog Guy.”

Tarver, who is black, was the object of racist taunts and jeers that included “N**ger Uncle Tom.” His iconic hot dog cart was destroyed, which was perhaps the unkindest cut of all. And what had Tarver done to incur the wrath of a crowd of cretins? Nothing other than venturing to near the Capitol, which action – last time anyone checked – was within his constitutional rights.

The YouTube video that follows tells Tarver’s story and suggests that the sidewalk outside the Capitol was a common venue from which he dispensed his edible wares. A woman by the name of Lorilea Susanne has set up a site where concerned citizens can donate to help Tarver rebuild his business. One can reasonably expect that Barack Obama will figure prominently among the donors, owing to his vast store of compassion and belief in the rich doing their fare share.

And a step in the right direction, too. Federal Corporate slush funds to specific industries (pharmaceuticals; agriculture; energy) NEED to expire. I don't like the government having such a heavy hand in the funding of these things, other than the military itself, and I have an innate dislike of 'defense contracts' with the private sector.

Dont bother diagnosing my puns; "turrets" = tossing logic from the top of the tower (as exemplified by your posts).

LOL, carrottop skank; you arent even WORTH a single red cent. "I'll take consonants for $20 please"; "what is female gentalia"??!!

BTW, I wouldnt even CLAIM kinship to rhino McCan; in fact, I'd goes as far as to change my name. Besides, everyone knows the Irish are prone to drinking bouts (which explains your bastardized childbirth).

I'M IN LOVE WITH LEO, AS YOU SURELY KNOW, BUT I'M INTERESTED AS TO WHETHER YOU'RE STILL WEARING YOUR DIAMONDS? AND WHERE, PRECISELY? I HAVE A BIG DIAMOND I'VE BEEN TRYING TO GIVE TO LEO BUT SHE WON'T TAKE IT. IT'S NO USE TO ME, BUT SHE RESISTS. PROBABLY BECAUSE OF HUBBY, IT'S OFTEN THAT WAY. I'D LIKE TO SEE IT DISPLAYED PROPERLY: A NIPPLE PIERCING. YOU OK WITH THAT?
