Boy you can not comprehend. To address a few of your points;
- In the post I responded to and pointed out the economic failures of the boy president you refuted nary a one
- Interest rates are comparable to the rates before the boy president was elected
- Fewer American's in the work force today than when the boy president was elected
- Inflation rates a re comparable to rates when the boy president was elected
- American tax payers still out 13 billion dollars on auto bail out of government motors
- We still have 40,000 + troops in Iraq
- He did nothing for their right for women to have abortions, commit murder, the Supreme Court made that decision
- New home starts lower when the boy president was elected
- Existing home sales lower than when the boy president was elected
- The stock market will continue to grow as the boy president continues to increase the deficit and print money

It's going great in Wisconsin, thx Scott Walker.
Walker for president, time to end the foolish, destructive, wasteful policies of Barry and Harry.
LOL. Smoke and mirrors.

"Wisconsin is PROJECTED to have a $1 billion surplus at the end of the two-year budget period covering July 2013 to July 2015 -- almost all of it because tax collections are rising faster than expected, according to the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau." Not exactly a bird in the hand.

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 1/22/14:

Walker would also put more than $100 million more into the state's rainy-day fund, which currently holds about $279 million.

But his overall plan would leave the state in worse financial shape in the long term. Walker said his plan would add perhaps $100 million to the $725 million shortfall projected for the next two-year budget by the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau."

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, 5/28/13: Wisconsin Ranks 49th In Economic Outlook. The state was one of only five states with a projected economic contraction in the last six months of 2013.

AND, Wisconsin dropped from 44th place to 50th in private sector job creation.

I would say that Walker looks pretty damn foolish and destructive. Unlike Obama, who has our country back on track after the Bush train wreck.

Factory Jobs Are Gone. Get Over It

Across richer countries, growth has been accompanied by a decline in the number of manufacturing jobs and the rise of service jobs. Some of the richer countries, such as France, that have seen the slowest decline in manufacturing’s share of employment have actually suffered some of the most sluggish growth. In the U.S., Eric Fisher of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland suggests that those states where the shift from manufacturing employment has been the most rapid are those where wages have climbed the fastest.

Developing countries have taken over much of the low-skilled, low-capital production once done in the U.S.: Consider the garment industry or tire manufacturing. Such low-tech work is even more mind-numbing and poorly paid than it was when the work was done in the U.S. through the 1970s. Many of the workers killed in the recent Rana Plaza garment factory collapse in Bangladesh earned just $3 a day. Some politicians have regretted the loss of similar jobs in the U.S. The question is: Do we want such jobs here now?

-Windsor Ontario News -A deadly pig virus that has infected at least two Ontario farms could cost the Canadian pork industry tens of millions of dollars if it spreads across provincial borders, a group representing Ontario's hog farmers warned Monday.
Officials announced a second case of porcine epidemic diarrhea was confirmed this weekend in a farm in Chatham-Kent, as well as a possible third case in the same region.
* Eastern Ontario pork producers brace for deadly pig virus
The first case, a farrow-to-finish farm in southwestern Ontario, was found last week — a discovery that heightened concern among the country's hog producers.
"We do anticipate that this will be tough on our industry. It's all going to depend on where it goes from here," said Amy Cronin of Ontario Pork.
"We are putting into place measures to try to manage the virus as best we can and keep it off as many farms as we can given that it is very contagious," she said.
"We estimate that if it were to spread past Ontario throughout Canada, within one year, it could cost $45 million to the Canadian pork industry."
Porcine epidemic diarrhea is usually fatal in young pigs but older animals can recover. Producers have long worried that PED might make its way up from the U.S., where it has killed millions of piglets.

Figures!

Hmmm. What does that say about Michelle Bachmann? She came across as a complete idiot. You people should be embarassed to have her representing your party.

Michele Bachmann Quotes:

"Carbon dioxide is portrayed as harmful. But there isn't even one study that can be produced that shows that carbon dioxide is a harmful gas."

"We're running out of rich people in this country."

"Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That's the kind of spirit that I have, too" -Rep. Michele Bachmann (Waterloo was home to is John Wayne Gacy, a notorious serial killer, not John Wayne

"But the Lord says,'Be submissive wives; you are to be submissive to your husbands."

"I wish the American media would take a great look at the views of the people in Congress and find out: Are they pro-America or anti-America?"

"I find it interesting that it was back in the 1970s that the swine flu broke out under another Democrat president, Jimmy Carter. I'm not blaming this on President Obama, I just think it's an interesting coincidence." (1976 Swine Flu outbreak happened when Gerald Ford, a Republican, was president)

"If we took away the minimum wage -- if conceivably it was gone -- we could potentially virtually wipe out unemployment completely because we would be able to offer jobs at whatever level."

"Before we get started, let's all say 'Happy Birthday' to Elvis Presley today." (while campaigning for president in South Carolina on what was actually the anniversary of Elvis's death)

And, last but not least:

"But we also know that the very founders that wrote those documents worked tirelessly until slavery was no more in the United States.... I think it is high time that we recognize the contribution of our forbearers who worked tirelessly -- men like John Quincy Adams, who would not rest until slavery was extinguished in the country." (The Founding Fathers did not work to end slavery, and John Quincy Adams was not one of the Founding Fathers.)

Silence about what matters is not golden
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Sometimes, you get the feeling that’s the only King quote conservatives know.
They can’t quote what he said about unions:“We can all get more together than we can apart.”
They can’t quote what he said about poverty:“The solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a now widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income.”
They can’t quote what he said about injustice:“America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked,‘insufficient funds.’”
But they always quote the “content of character” passage from King’s “I Have A Dream” speech. They see it as supportive of their ideal of a so-called “colorblind” society wherein race — and racial problems — are acknowledged never.
Sarah Palin is the latest. Last week on the King holiday, she quoted that passage on Facebook and added:“Mr. President, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. and all who commit to ending any racial divide, no more playing the race card.”
You will hear President Obama talk about race only slightly more frequently than you will hear Mitch McConnell say,“Get down, with your bad self!” so there was a moment of disconnect in trying to figure out what she was talking about. Apparently, the reference was to a piece in last week’s New Yorker where Obama acknowledged that there are “some folks who really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president.” He also said some people probably cut him slack for the same attribute.
By now, most thoughtful people would take both observations as self-evident. And you have to wonder: If this mild remark is “playing the race card” what, then, may we permissibly say about race in Palin’s ideal world? Apparently, nothing.
Thus, you will wait in vain for a conservative to speak against the profiling of Trayvon Martin, the mass incarceration of black men under the failed War on Drugs or, ahem, the myriad racially-tinged attacks against President Obama. Indeed, other than their cries of pious indignation when some black conservative is mistreated, you’ll wait in vain to hear them say anything about race at all.
To acknowledge that we did not overcome, to admit there are miles to go before the Promised Land is to play the dreaded “race card.” So, mass incarceration? Don’t talk about it. Racial profiling? Hush. Economic exploitation? Ignore it and it will go away.
You have to wonder, as conservatives make their belated embrace of Martin Luther King, if they realize they are what he struggled against all his life. They’ve never been on the right side of history where black people are concerned. So where do they get the idea that they have moral authority on the subject of black struggle? Where do they get the temerity to shush those who have labored in — and lived — that struggle for years, generations and lifetimes?
The silence they preach is not golden. It is poison. It is moral cowardice.
But it is not new. The race card? Though that term did not exist in his lifetime, King was familiar with the argument. His focus on racial injustice, said critics, fanned flames of racial tension.
You are taking another romp through the progressive Briar Patch(Br'er Rabbit's patch for hiding). You are far too allusive and elusive at the same time.
Most of what MLK stood for was good but, so too, his methods mostly stunk to high Heaven.
As such, we are left to pick and choose those few diamonds found in his dirt pile.
"A man who hasn't found something he is willing to die for is not fit to live."
--- MLK
Keep in mind, though, that MLK is historically recognized as a notorious plagiarizer, a thief of other people's writings.

Bush Pushes Minority Homeownership
June 18, 2002|EDWIN CHEN | TIMES STAFF WRITER
Email
Share
ATLANTA — President Bush on Monday promoted his campaign to boost homeownership among minorities, saying he wanted the number of black and Latino homeowners to increase by at least 5.5 million by the end of the decade.
Bush, acknowledging he had set "a big goal," said it was achievable with the help of the private sector.
"When I lay out a goal, I mean it," Bush told several hundred people at Atlanta's St. Paul AME Church, which is located in a once-dilapidated, crime-infested neighborhood where a surge in home building has led to improvements.
Bush also wants Congress to approve $200 million a year in grants that would help low-income families buy their first homes. Most grants would be less than $5,000.
$200 million a year, this was Bush's entire contribution to the demorat authored mortgage disaster.
deny it.
i disagree with you with passing With Gramm-leech-bliley Act that killed the Glass Steagal Act , this gave way for Financial malfeance/corruption/crookenes s ,as the crooked/greedy banksters took advantage and issued gimmicky home Mortgage loans called the NINA loans, subprime loans... sure did a quite a number , fooled the underclass and middle Class into applying for these predatory loans... man you ignorant!.

That isn't as farfetched as it sounds. Consider this scenario. Say you were a Pakistani who spoke English and your wife or daughter was accidentally killed by an American drone. Would it be possible that you might spend time on a computer venting your hate for America? And is there anything that would prevent a Pakistani from doing a web search and find a forum "Barak Obama, our next President"? Would there be anything to prevent this angry Pakistani from masquerading as an American to retaliate against Obama and America? Right wing conspiracies are a lot less defensible than this.
I'd figure a Pakistani would be smarter than the Texas midget.

ED” stood for, yes, erectile dysfunction. As for the all-caps-worthy remedy, its details were not immediately clear. Language in the body of the message identified the potion as a product of Natural Breakthroughs Research LLC; a link farther down led to a website urging men to submit their e-mail addresses in order to receive “a cool free report” on impotence abatement. Sitting through a lengthy video finally yielded more information on the wonder drug, TestoMax 200, a putative natural testosterone booster.
