Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

they've been losing ground since 1980...you and your alter ego whatever, claimed was that their incomes had been going up in the 80's, 90's and under bush. I just provided links that provided evidence that statement was not accurate.
The world economy is changing and those who do not change with it will fall behind. No government program can change that.

Galt knows a computer scientist that spent 30 years working for the same company, earning a six-figure salary. About a year ago he was laid off at age 57, mainly because the computer language he had worked with all his career was obsolete and he had failed to move on. He was unable to find another job in his field, which is flooded with immigrants.

He now works in an Ace Hardware store primarily for medical benefits, desperately hoping that he will not lose his benefits because of ObamaKKKare. The irony is that he is a big Obama fan.

Such is life in Obama's America.

Maybe for you it is, but for everyone else, it is related to income and wealth
"One plausible definition of "middle-class" is those households in the middle quintile of the income distribution, or between the 40th and 60th percentiles. Under this view, 0-20th percentile is lower class, 20th-40th is lower-middle class, 40th-60th is middle class, 60th-80th is upper middle class, and 80th to 99th is upper class. The lower classes make under $20,262, in this view, and the upper classes above $101,582, according to the latest Census data. How do the classes compare, then? Let's compare the five classes, as well as what we'll call the Romney/Obama upper class, defined as those making over $200,000 a year. Here's how much each group makes, on average:"
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/...
here's the result of googling middle class definition
They confuse income with class, a common mistake.

Tables like that are skewed to the low end because almost half the people in the country do not work.

Galt's definition:

under $50K; poor

$50K-$75K: lower middle income

$75K-$125K: middle income

$125K-$200K: upper middle income

$200K-$500K: professional income level

over $500K; high income

The Annual Republican Crisis

It has been clear for months that House Republicans are not going to agree to the Senate’s reasonable spending plan for 2014, one that replaces the damage of the sequester with a mix of revenue increases and less-harmful cuts. The House budget, in fact, calls for cuts to below the sequester level. The best that can be hoped for is a stopgap measure, known as a continuing resolution, to keep the government running through mid-December at this year’s inadequate level.
Any revenue increase (tax increase) is completely unacceptable.

September 8,2013: Putin's phone call to the White House, a possible scenario:

Putin: Hello, Barack. I just wanted to touch bases with you in regards to what I have been trying to do to address the concerns you expressed during our last conversation. As you said, Assad is not going to cooperate with you or those who stand with you but, as his staunchest ally, he was willing to listen to me.

Obama: Good to hear from you, Vladamir. I was confident you would see it my way. As we discussed, a peaceful solution is really up to you. I and the international community will not just sit back and ignore what happened. I'm glad to hear you have been making an effort to avoid a confrontation. What has been the outcome of your conversations with Assad so far? Any luck?

Putin: Well, as a matter of fact, that is why I called. Assad has agreed to declare his chemical weapons and hand over control to international monitors as long as you and others stop threatening him.

Obama: That's great news! Just getting Assad to admit he has chemical weapons is a terrific move forward. I will, of course, postpone the vote and will see that our advisors get together immediately to work out the details. I'm pleased you took my advice to heart and I want to thank you, Vladimir, for your cooperation and congratulate you on your successful diplomacy.

Putin: Thank you. However, you really didn't leave me much choice. Although I do not agree that Assad was responsible, I certainly agree with you when you say it is our responsibility to put an end to the use of chemical weapons. I look forward to seeing this through. I'll talk to you soon.

Obama: Looking forward to it. Good bye.

Hey, skippy, it is Obama who is trying to claim new technology such as ATMs is a new flanged thing.

We have been moving into the age of technology now for several decades and it is not something new to the Obama era.

Yes, began years ago.

That is the problem with his statement. This trend is not new and makes for a poor excuse.

Who Is The Smallest Government Spender Since Eisenhower? Would You Believe It's Barack Obama?/ 5/24/2012 / http://tinyurl.com/c6b2acy
It’s enough to make even the most ardent Obama cynic scratch his head in confusion.
Amidst all the cries of Barack Obama being the most prolific big government spender the nation has ever suffered, Marketwatch is reporting that our president has actually been tighter with a buck than any United States president since Dwight D. Eisenhower.
In fiscal 2010 (the first Obama budget) spending fell 1.8% to $3.46 trillion. In fiscal 2011, spending rose 4.3% to $3.60 trillion. In fiscal 2012, spending is set to rise 0.7% to $3.63 trillion, according to the Congressional Budget Office’s estimate of the budget that was agreed to last August. Finally in fiscal 2013 — the final budget of Obama’s term — spending is scheduled to fall 1.3% to $3.58 trillion. Read the CBO’s latest budget outlook.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/rickungar/2012/05 ...
Waving a planted press commentary, Obama recently claimed on the campaign stump,“federal spending since I took office has risen at the slowest pace of any President in almost 60 years.”

OH delicious you like Forbes: President Obama: The Biggest Government Spender In World History

The U.S. has never before had a President who thinks so little of the American people that he imagines he can win re-election running on the opposite of reality. But that is the reality of President Obama today.
http://www.forbes.com/sites/peterferrara/2012...

*You proved your point though: O'bama thinks you so stupid you will believe anything he says-ROTFLMAO.

"But you know, why would he (O'bamaspender) go out there waiving an article that could immediately be debunked? Maybe because he thought it was true. That’s more alarming, isn’t it, the idea that he knows so little about the effects of his own economic program that he thinks he really is a low spender.”"

Would you have been happier if he had said "industrial robotics and automated translation services"? They're TRENDS. ATM'S AND Ticket Kiosks are TRENDS.

FACT: "rapid technological change has been destroying jobs faster than it is creating them, contributing to the stagnation of median income and the growth of inequality in the United States.... technology is behind both the healthy growth in productivity and the weak growth in jobs."

HERE IS YOUR DRUG ADDICT QUEER PRESIDENT AND HIS JEW BUDDIES
OBAMA AND EMANUEL: MEMBERS OF SAME GAY BATH HOUSE IN CHICAGO
President Obama and his chief of staff Rahm Emanuel are lifetime members of the same gay bath house in uptown Chicago, according to informed sources in Chicago’s gay community, as well as veteran political sources in the city.
The bath house, Man’s Country, caters to older white men and it has been in business for some 30 years and is known as one of uptown Chicago’s “grand old bathhouses.” WMR was told by sources who are familiar with the bath house that it provides one-year “lifetime” memberships to paying customers and that the club’s computerized files and pre-computer paper files, include membership information for both Obama and Emanuel. The data is as anonymized as possible for confidentiality purposes. However, sources close to “Man’s Country” believe the U.S. Secret Service has purged the computer and filing cabinet files of the membership data on Obama and Emanuel.
Members of Man’s Country are also issued club identification cards. WMR learned that Obama and Emanuel possessed the ID cards, which were required for entry.
Obama began frequenting Man’s Country in the mid-1990s, during the time he transitioned from a lecturer at the University of Chicago Law School to his election as an Illinois State Senator in 1996. Emanuel, reportedly joined Man’s Country after he left the Clinton White Hosue and moved back to Chicago in 1998, joining the investment firm of Wasserstein Perella and maintaining his membership during his 2002 campaign for the U.S. 5th District House seat vacated by Rod Blagojevich, who was elected governor.
Man’s Country appears to be a “one stop shopping” center for gay men. The club’s website advertises steam rooms,“fantasy rooms,” bed rooms, male strippers, adult movies, and lockers.
However, Man’s Country was not the only location for Obama’s predatory gay sex activities. The Chicago gay community is aware that Obama often made contacts with younger men at his famous “pick-up basketball” games. It was at these “pick up” matches where Obama first met Emanuel and a young Democratic campaign worker and senior bank vice president named Alexi Giannoulias. Currently running for Obama’s old U.S. Senate seat now occupied by Roland Burris, Giannoulias successfully ran for Illinois Treasurer in 2006 after being drafted for the run by Chicago’s Democratic machine.
The Blagojevich trial:“Sex, Lies, and Audio tapes”— Fitzgerald’s US Attorney’s Office part of White House cover-up of gay sex in the Second City

Republicans To Waste More Taxpayer Money By Holding 3 Hearings on Benghazi This Week

That this comes from the party that took us to war with the wrong country seems to cause them no shame. There were 13 Benghazis under Bush, and Republicans didn’t say a word. Additionally, thousands of our troops died fighting the wrong war over a lie.

Why should any president pretend they are like another president? If O'bama is going to pretend to be like any one-compare him to the muzzie sympathizer Carter. O'bama should stand on his two pointed out feet. But you know what a second term of Jimmah Carter would have looked like now huh? Muzzies for everyone.
