Barack Obama, our next President

Where was your precious Tea Party when the Bush administration was waging two wars off the books?
That's right you morons only want accountability when there's a Democrat in the Oval Office, more so when he's not white.
Don't ask questions you have no clue about, could NOT comprehend. and don't really want to know the answers to, duhmmy. Just continue to pway with yer fwee fone like a good little ignotard fer life.

When Obama's mother remarried he used his step father's last name while living in Indonesia.
But hey, I guess you were too uninformed to know it.
Why? wouldn't Occidental let 16 year olds in using their given birth names?

A party that has made deficit reduction its clarion call, and in particular, reducing the size of government spending, appears to have received virtually nothing in the way of major spending cuts in this deal or deficit reduction for that matter. When push came to shove, reducing tax burdens was all that mattered to the GOP.

Of course, this result is neither startling nor unexpected, at least to those who have paid close attention to the Republican party over the last four years. It is ironic that on the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's emancipation proclamation, a party that was formed by courageous slavery abolitionists has become, 150 years later, a party that is courageously fighting to ensure that wealthy Americans do not pay one penny more in taxes.

... and that explains how the fiscal cliff was averted by eliminating all cuts to government spending and enacting a new tax policy that will generate 600 billion dollars in new taxes over a 10 year period of time... while the government will have a 1.3+ trillion dollar deficit for the foreseeable future with no plan to reduce it.
Let's see what that means....
1.3+ trillion times 10 years... naught plus naught equals naught, carry the naught, minus 600 billion....
No effect at all. The already obscene 16.5 trillion dollar debt about doubles.
An idiot knows this government will collapse.

What then?

Boehner is a Democrat wearing a Republican costume.
The House just approved a bill that has NO spending cuts and raises taxes a mere additional 600 billion dollars over a 10-year period of time, while the dificit will continue to be 1.3+ trillion dollars. Let’s calculate the effect of that…
1.3+ trillion dollars times 10 years minus 600 billion dollars, plus the existing 16.5 trillion dollars.
An idiot can tell you that government will collapse.
Boehner has to be removed from the Speaker’s chair. If he is not removed, the country will collapse in our lifetime. The Speaker of the House is the only, and last, person that will be able to stop the suicidal insanity of our government. We have to get a Speaker that isn't a Democrat automaton and will stand up against this obvious insanity.

So is your point that the deficit no longer needs reduced? Or is your point that only the wealthy should bear the burden of reducing it? Or is your point that you simply want to whine about Obama?

Nobody has answered these questions.
What was the name the person we know as "Obama" using at Occidental College?
What was the name the person we know as "Obama" using at Columbia where he enrolled but nobody in his class ever met him, and he is not even mentioned in the class he was supposedly graduating with in the year book?
When did "Barry Soetoro" who entered the United States as a citizen of Indonesia become "Barack Obama"?

And, how do you know this? Perhaps you have information the entire rest of the world has not been allowed to see....

Gubbermint spending has going from 19% to 24% of GDP since Lord Obama ascended the throne.

How about we cut spending back to the levels it was under BJ Clinton before we jack up taxes?

Where is that nj so-called raider? Didn't show up for work this morning? I'm betting you still expect to be paid, though. I have a question for you:

Nj raider 1 wrote: <quoted text> 1st of all you or no one else don't treat me like anything. Respect is not a treatment. Your post is stupid being your posting on a forum about a black president. It's obvious you still think were in the 1800s. Who's the ones pointing the finger & making excuses about why the blackman was reelected? We're laughing because just as Barack Obama rose like a black rose from the concrete, so shall another black rose rise to prominence!. Barack Obama is just the start of what is to come. Its a beautiful thing to see thee younger white generation siding with the black people. We're just 13% of this country's population so it was your children that truly elected & reelected Americas black president! Black leader of the nation! Black commander & chief! We have the bask now & dont plan on giving it back anytime son(what did you call ya'll (whiteylol!)

I hate to be the one pointing this out to you, but Obama isn't black. He's a mulatto.
I'm wondering why a person who is obviously a mulatto is called "black" by you? Why don't you call him white?
I'd really like to see your answer on this.

The Democrats insist the deficit not be reduced. You'd know that if you kept up with events.

The so-called "wealthy" don't even have enough in earnings to pay for Obama's pipedream of a government if you taxed them at 100 percent and made them destitute.

So, the question still remains:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Meanwhile, wealthy Dems have been and continue to avoid paying more taxes themselves. But its ok as long as they aren't conservative or named Mitt Romney. The name of the game is:

Elitism. Exemptions. Evasion.

let the whining begin.
Is There Really a Difference Anymore?
..........
Twelve voices were shouting in anger, and they were all alike. No questions, now, what had happened to the faces of the pigs. The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and from pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.[Animal Farm, last paragraph]
..........
Republicans were ushered into power in 2010, buoyed by limited government populism spawned by the Tea Party. They publicized a document called the GOP Pledge to America. You should take some time to read it. There are many interesting declarations in there. You’ll find lectures about the need to let the legislative process work; about the 3 day legislative transparency rule; about not spending most of the time on banal suspension bills; about cutting taxes; about getting rid of Obamacare; about cutting spending. Interesting indeed.
Republicans began their session in 2011 promising an immediate cut of $100 billion in spending. They lied. Ultimately, they only cut $352 million off of the FY 2011 budget. How fitting it is for them to end the 112th Congress by increasing spending by $330 billion…along with hiking taxes, letting every aspect of the Obamacare tax hikes slide, and obviating our leverage with the debt ceiling by agreeing to a sequester trap to coincide with the next battle.
Yes, we know…wait until March, and they will really extract concessions from Obama…just like they did $2.1 trillion ago. Except that they have already said they will never “allow us to default,” and they have communicated that fact to the Democrats.
Here is a spreadsheet of the voting tally from the Madison Performance Index. Take a look at it, and try to decipher the pigs from the men. Many of those who got us into this mess in the first place, including Cantor and McCarthy, joined the free ride and gave out hall passes to vote no.
Parting question: will Cantor and McCarthy purge themselves from their committee assignments for voting against the leadership scorecard?
http://www.redstate.com/2013/01/02/is-there-r...
Thanks for making our point. You are correct. Boehner is a Democrat wearing a Republican costume.
Yes, we agree with you. We need to change the Speaker.
Nancy Pelosi requested Boehner force the 112th congress to select the leadership for the 113th Congress so the Democrats could continue to get away with everything and collapse our government under the burden of an unpayable debt. Boehner had no problem with this bullshit.
We definitely need a new Speaker. Thanks for pointing this out, dufus.

One Democrat, Obama, put reducing entitlement spending on the table months ago. You'd know this if you watched anything but FOX News. That is where some of the money would come.
Nobody, except maybe FOX News, suggested that the wealthy bear ALL the burden of reducing the deficit. What rational thinking people have asked is that the wealthy do their SHARE.

Really? And what happened to that charade?
Looks to me like the Democrats keep moving the goal posts. The end result of what the Democrats proposed had no... that's NADA, NONE, ZERO cuts in government spending.
And, if that isn't enough insanity for you, the taxes increased will only generate 600 billion dollars over 10 years. Let's compare that to the 1.3+ trillion dollar annual deficit.
1.3+ trillion times 10 years minum 600 billion equals... no goddam effect at all. The 16.5 trillion dollar debt just about doubles.

An idiot knows that government will collapse.
