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

Great news, money's the only thing that will motivate Republicans to act on sequestration!
Sequestration was Bullwinkle's idea and he said he would VETO any bills that would not abide by it, so why not humor the most divisive president in history?

By the way hypocrite, money in you losers pocket is why you support what you do, old ballsack.

Do you have any specifics on the so-called "harassment"?

Far as I know there is no law against sending critical emails and voice mails to public officials.

You still didn't tell us what subsidies you are talking about. Read that New York Times article again and just copy and paste the subsidies they identified. An idiot can do that.
What subsidies?
I hear the word "subsidies" said a lot. I just have never seen anything to back that Democrat propaganda bullshit up.
What subsidies is Obama talking about?
Ohhhh, I see. So in other words, it's not enough that the NY Times mentions $4 billion in federal oil subsidies.

You demand a break down for each oil company, right? Or else you're right and the NY Times is wrong.

Seriously, this kind of hair-splitting shows you to be the fool you are.

MSNBC’s Chuck Todd criticized Monday the new fundraising efforts of President Obama’s dark money group, Organizing for Action, calling a scheme for high donors to meet regularly with Obama “the definition of selling access.”

Todd was describing the quarterly meetings that will be enjoyed by OFA’s $500,000 donors, the New York Times reported over the weekend:

But those contributions will also translate into access, according to donors courted by the president’s aides. Next month, Organizing for Action will hold a “founders summit” at a hotel near the White House, where donors paying $50,000 each will mingle with Mr. Obama’s former campaign manager, Jim Messina, and Mr. Carson, who previously led the White House Office of Public Engagement.

Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House. Moreover, the new cash demands on Mr. Obama’s top donors and bundlers come as many of them are angling for appointments to administration jobs or ambassadorships.

“This just looks bad–it looks like the White House is selling access,” Todd said Monday.“It’s the definition of selling access. If you believe money has a strangle hold over the entire political system this is ceding the moral high ground.”

The perk was first reported by the Los Angeles Times earlier in February after a meeting between OFA leadership and top Los Angeles and Bay Area fundraisers for Obama’s reelection campaign.

OFA is a tax-exempt 501(c)(4) and therefore not required to disclose the identities of its donors, nor the amounts they give. In addition to major campaign donors, the organization’s leadership has been courting corporate donors.

"1. GOP policies such as tax breaks clearly favor the wealthy."
Only half the goddam country is paying all the income tax for the entire country. Perhaps the Democrats have a fair tax plan where EVERYONE will pay their fair share of what the government they voted for costs?
"2. GOP legislators constantly oppose Wall Street reform."
Wall Street reform written by the very criminals that orchestrated the economic collapse, that being Dodd and Frank, isn't any kind of reform we want.
"3. GOP constantly fights against minimum wage.(And who benefits from that the most? The poor.)"
Why should an employer be forced to pay more for the same useless employee? Why does anyone need minimum wage? Why don't Democrats get off their ass and become worth more than minimum wage?
That will solve their income problem without instituting a Marxist program like minimum wage.
"4. GOP constantly fights social security benefits."
Let's fix Social Security right here and now:
IF YOU DIDN'T PAY INTO SOCIAL SECURITY, YOU DON'T GET ANYTHING FROM SOCIAL SECURITY.
Now that we've fixed Social Security, what other problem do you have?
"5. GOP constantly fights affordable healthcare."
What you call "affordable health care" is paid for by the only half of the goddam population paying all the income taxes for the entire population. Of course, it's affordable to the half of the population that won't have to pay for it. It's not affordable to the other half of the population that pays all the income taxes for the entire population.
"6. GOP under Bush allowed credit card companies to charge 30% interest rates."
If you don't like that, don't earn for yourself an horrible credit rating by not paying any of your bills. If you pay your bills, you will have a normal credit card interest charge.
All of your problems are self-induced.
We are tired of subsidizing your problems. It's time you fixed them yourself, or just live with them.
Hey dumass, ever since the republicans deregulated housing scandal crashed thee economy, even those further educated than H.S are forced to accept lower paying jobs. Your thought process is totally stupid! There's a need for minimum wage workers. They often perform work that snobbies like you consider yourselves too good for. Everybody can't be rich & minimum wage serves as a wage scale for employers. Not to mention protection against modern day slavery. If they were useless they would'nt have a job in the 1st place. As for every other BS response you posted, you can deny it all you want, but the fact remains. Thats the reason the republicans were demolished in the last 2 elections. Still believe the minority outweighs the majority, hows that going? 2014 democratic majority in both house & senate. Change you can believe in! Lol!

Obama "the most divisive president in history".

Seems you'd like us to forget how Bush and friends described anyone who criticized the bogus war in Iraq as "enabing the terrorists".

The same administration that enjoyed putting the political spotlight on gays and drumming up hate against them to win votes.

And when Obama took office, how long was it before Congressman Joe Wilson yelled "You Liar!" at him from the aisle? And Senator Mitch McConnell stated the GOP's first priority was to defeat him. This said over three years before the next general election.

Sorry, but the lines of division were clearly drawn when Obama came in. Your side hated him before he could get the word "hello" out of his mouth.

Because he is the living symbol of the public's rejection of YOU.
