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

<quoted text>Barack Hussein O'bama-a COMMUNIST.
The head of the Department of Justice confiscating personal information from news reporters for investigative reporting and confiscating personal information from well-established news organizations, Associated Press and Fox News, based on unfounded suspicions...

CIA agents forced to remain silent about the deaths of four Americans. Whistleblowers punished and demoted. Wrongdoers rewarded and promoted...

The nation being held captive to a law the majority were against and no republican voted for giving the federal government and the IRS power to make our personal health decisions which no one knows how to implement...

Attempts to silence and censor the opposition...

An agenda promoting a one-party system that desires to destroy competition in the market place and, thus, capitalism to level the playing field so the few can decide what's best for the masses...

Sounds like communism to me. Unless I'm missing something.

No, just the percentages. You accept the unprecedented numbers and blame it on the calculation. You call it a recovery, it's nothing of the kind. You blaming Bush is a tacit admission of Obama's utter incompetence and your obsequious fawning.
If they calculate it the same way, then how can the numbers be cheating. Still waiting for that explanation.

Recovering from what? When you figure that out, let me know. Otherwise you just blame Obama for everything & excuse the actions of George W Bush & the Republican run Congress from 1995 until 2007.

I see you didn't answer any of the questions.

Not one republican voted for the Affordable Healthcare Act which is going to be anything but affordable - especially for the younger healthier generation who will bear the brunt of the costs.

Not one democrat in the Senate voted to make significant cuts in the budget to do away with abuse, fraud, waste and duplication in the federal government despite numerous bills passed by the House.

Not one democrat wants to talk about much needed reforms to keep Medicare and Social Security solvent and to improve the tax laws.

So which side are you on?

It's only one question this time.

Hey, Barney Frank: The Government Did Cause the Housing Crisis

Congressman Frank, of course, blamed the financial crisis on the failure adequately to regulate the banks. In this, he is following the traditional Washington practice of blaming others for his own mistakes. For most of his career, Barney Frank was the principal advocate in Congress for using the government's authority to force lower underwriting standards in the business of housing finance. Although he claims to have tried to reverse course as early as 2003, that was the year he made the oft-quoted remark, "I want to roll the dice a little bit more in this situation toward subsidized housing." Rather than reversing course, he was pressing on when others were beginning to have doubts.

Reagan would still be labeled a racist today for his anti-integration policies and war on the American worker, students, the elderly, and the poor policies.

"Evaluation of CRA Performance
The CRA requires that each depository institution's record in helping meet the credit needs of its entire community be evaluated periodically. That record is taken into account in considering an institution's application for deposit facilities.
Neither the CRA nor its implementing regulation gives specific criteria for rating the performance of depository institutions. Rather, the law indicates that the evaluation process should accommodate an institution's individual circumstances. Nor does the law require institutions to make high-risk loans that jeopardize their safety. To the contrary, the law makes it clear that an institution's CRA activities should be undertaken in a safe and sound manner....."
Even democrats know Medicare and Social Security won't remain solvent much longer. Only republicans have come up with plans for reforms so they will still be in place for your generation.

Poof a whole bunch of Americans have suddenly disappeared under the terrorist arm of Barack Hussein O'bama. The U3 rate is the percentage of the "participating labor force" that is unemployed. That is all well and good, except that the Obama labor department has decided that it will simply manipulate the definition of "labor force" to suit its own needs. And what the O'bama administration has done is simply shrink the definition of the "labor force" by pretending that hundreds of thousands of non-working adults are no longer in existence for all intents and purposes. Look out you could be next. According to O'bama it is easy to get rid of Americans like yourself. POOF!@#*& O'bama says you are a unit, no longer needed.:)

"GOP faces its own divisions on budget issues
Susan Davis, USA TODAY 3:35 p.m. EDT August 1, 2013
John Boehner

WASHINGTON Republicans in Congress stumbled this week over their party's internal divisions on fiscal issues, leaving the party struggling for direction as it prepares for a bruising fall battle with Democrats over the federal budget.

Wednesday, GOP leaders abandoned a transportation spending bill that adhered to the budget drafted by House Budget Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis. It would have continued this year's governmentwide spending cuts known as the "sequester." The Ryan budget had been approved by the House in March with all but 10 House Republican votes, but Wednesday, GOP leaders were not able to muster enough votes to pass the transportation bill, the first non-defense spending bill that would have implemented the Ryan spending levels. Some Republicans joined Democrats in opposition to the bill because it did not provide enough money for government programs they consider crucial.

House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., issued a blistering critique of his colleagues after the bill was pulled. "With this action, the House has declined to proceed on the implementation of the very budget it adopted just three months ago. Thus, I believe that the House has made its choice: sequestration and its unrealistic and ill-conceived discretionary cuts must be brought to an end," Rogers said.

But Thursday, Senate Republicans blocked a second, more generous, version of the same bill because it would have spent more money than allowed under the sequester. They blocked the bill despite the advocacy of Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who helped write the bill and asked her GOP colleagues to support it.

House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., both face divisions among the GOP rank-and-file on the best path forward in negotiations with Democrats on how to prevent a government shutdown when the funding runs out Sept. 30...."

Do you really still believe that any republican really cares about any younger person's higher private debt after they voted to keep interest rates on student college loans high ,blocked every jobs bill (including one for returning war veterans--republicans also don't care how many U S war veterans owe too much private debt, lose their homes, can't find jobs , or go back to school because it is too expensive --keeping younger people who go to school,and fight our wars for us , desperate and in debt helps republican corporate masters force our young people to settle, out of fear , for lower paying , part-tine jobs rather than pursuit of careers.

Yeah made a good point last night. He said if Romney/Ryan got in, we'd have less than what we have now.

And I agreed. Less scandals. Less money taken out of our checks. Less confusion and costs implementing Obamacare. Less fear and uncertainty about future health care. Less concern about government becoming Big Brother. Less poverty. Less unemployment. Less power grabbing.

Hard to believe I agreed with Yeah.
