Barack Obama, our next President

Ronald Reagan and the 47 Percent

Mitt Romney, meet Ronald Reagan. The Romney-Ryan campaign labels the 47 percent of people who don’t pay federal income taxes as “takers.” But to President Reagan, the godfather of today’s conservatives, anyone who worked for a living was a maker, whether he or she paid taxes or not.

Reagan strongly supported the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC), which sends checks to Americans who work but earn less than around $46,000 a year, depending on family size. Recipients of the credit are among those who don’t pay income tax, but Reagan never regarded that as a problem. His administration estimated that the 1986 reform of the tax code would remove 6 million working poor from the tax rolls. Reagan called the reform a “sweeping victory for fairness” and “perhaps the biggest antipoverty program in our history.”

Was Romney’s Tax Gaffe a Repudiation of Reaganite Conservatism?

In fact, numerous conservatives have been arguing that Romney’s remarks implicitly reject one of the fundamental tenets of the conservative agenda: that carefully targeted tax breaks and deductions can work economic and social miracles, a favorite claim of Republicans from Ronald Reagan to George W. Bush.

In the Washington Post, for example, Henry Olsen of the American Enterprise Institute charges Romney with “severely misstat[ing] and undermin[ing] conservative principles” and insulting Reagan’s legacy.

He’s got a point. One of the main reasons so many Americans don’t pay income tax is the existence of tax breaks and deductions that Republicans have long supported.

Libya didn't attack us.

And guess what Duh A Vey, bin_laden's mentor and hero Zawahari (the guy that helped the Muslim Brohood in offing Anwar Sadat).. he's still around, the depths of the depravity there, just about too inhumane to fathom...almost makes bin_laden look like a warm and fuzzy sheep.

Oh, I admit it's not the 'King Barack's Version' but it's true non the less.
That eight week hesitation in Obama's decision to "take out Osama" was used mostly to calm his nerves and convince him "those brutish terrorist fellows" couldn't track him down and "violate" him. He didn't mention Michelle or the kids.
So we are in Afghanistan fighting Al qaeda & you think Bush invaded Iraq, who had no Al Qaeda, in order to attract Al Qaeda so as to kill them there.

What, Al Qaeda would go to Iraq & not Afghanistan? Maybe we can kill them better in Iraq?

You are dumber than sh*t.

The raid to get Bin Laden was risky due to relations with Pakistan. We had to be sure he was there.

I laugh at you f*cking bozo right whiners who think we should have allowed Bin Laden to live because you are too afraid to kill him.

But if Bush would have not called him irrelevant & actually killed Bin Laden - you'd be dancing in the streets.

So wake up and smell the REAL coffee-brainless.

Zawahiri had been active organizing Islamic extremists since he was fifteen, when he became the leader of a small group of student militants dedicated to overthrowing Gamal Abdel Nasser's secular Egyptian government. Upon meeting bin Laden, he at once understood the wealthy Saudi's potential usefulness to his personal ambitions. In 1980, experts say, bin Laden was politically motivated but ideologically malleable. And he was very wealthy.

"In 1981, Zawahiri was arrested and imprisoned, along with dozens of other radicals, for collaborating in the assassination of Egypt's President Anwar Sadat. Prison time only redoubled Zawahiri's fervor. Not long after his release, he took over leadership of the terrorist organization Egyptian Islamic Jihad, which the United States believes helped to organize the August 7, 1998, bombings of U.S. Embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and Nairobi, Kenya. In 2001, according to widely accepted accounts, Zawahiri formally merged the Egyptian Islamic Jihad with bin Laden's al-Qaeda network. The group is now officially named Qaeda al-Jihad."

Reagan considered the EITC to be the centerpiece of his legacy. Should probably also mention that Bush II increased the credit.

You see. Where is Dumbwaiter.

Even dumbass Mr Eed knows a better question.

However, Mr Eed & Dumbwaiter are evidently both so dumb they can't look up federal revenues on the internet.

I'll help. I know its a mystery to you two but there are government websites that list where the Treasury gets their revenues. No sh*T. Really. Why don't you quit your ever constant whining & look them up.

I would never say president nobama was not involved in getting rid of bin Laden, that's a good thing. He watched and fortunately did not put the kabosh on the mission. But I do have a question. The death of bin Laden saw a reduction in atrocities committed by the taliban and al qaeda? They are no longer murdering women and children at will? Face it "real dumb" the US should not be wasting lives and monies in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan that are not going to change any time soon. We should not try to be nation builders with the force of arms.

One of Bin Laden's contributions to Al Qaeda was the ability to raise money.

Pot or kettle-just names. Same thing.

AQIM volunteers were also very active in Iraq during the 2003-2011 war with the United States, often performing suicide bombings.

(here dmbfk-read for yourself)

Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) is a Salafi-jihadist militant group and U.S.-designated Foreign Terrorist Organization operating in North Africa's Sahara and Sahel. The group can trace its provenance back to Algeria's civil war, and has since become an al-Qaeda affiliate with broader regional and international ambitions. While many experts suggest AQIM is the primary transnational terror threat in North Africa, the risk it poses to Europe and the United States remains unclear.

AQIM's activities have garnered heightened scrutiny in recent months, particularly after the group, along with other jihadist factions, expanded its foothold in Mali's vast ungoverned north.

WTH we doing in Mali? Duh media sayz.....spweading democracy?

So, as long as Zawahari is alive, we should not kill any other Al Qaeda leaders.

Killing other Al Qaeda leadership is pointless.

Libya is getting new leadership & government.

You think we should ignore it. Allow it to be influenced by others.

The mere idea that you backed George W Bush in his invasion of Iraq & have this tissy fit about Libya is beyond ridiculous.

Nobody knows the answer, dufus. I just pointed out that "taxes" isn't a source of money. It's merely a method of collecting money from a source of money.

You pretend to know the plan for government. So, how about you answer this question.

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

Or, you can just come out and say it, the Democrats don't even have a plan for government.
