Indisputable facts, can't be spun.

Don't just skim over this, please read it slowly and let it sink in. If in doubt, check it out.The day the democrats took over was not January 22nd 2009, it was actually January 3, 2007... the day the Democrats took over the House of Representatives and the Senate, at the very start of the 110th Congress.The Democrat Party controlled a majority in both chambers for the first time since the end of the 103rd Congress in 1995. For those who are listening to the liberals propagating the fallacy that everything is "Bush's Fault", think about this: January 3rd, 2007 was the day the Democrats took over the Senate and the Congress. At that time:The DOW Jones closed at 12,621.77The GDP for the previous quarter was 3.5%The Unemployment rate was 4.6%George Bush's Economic policies SET A RECORD of 52 STRAIGHT MONTHS of JOB GROWTH

Some people aren't aware of all of this.

Remember the day...January 3rd, 2007 was the day that Barney Frank took over the House Financial Services

Committee and Chris Dodd took over the Senate Banking Committee..

The economic meltdown that happened 15 months later was in what part of the economy? BANKING AND FINANCIAL SERVICES! Unemployment... to this CRISIS by (among MANY other things) dumping 5-6 TRILLION Dollars of toxic loans on the economy from YOUR Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac FIASCOES! Bush asked Congress 17 TIMES to stop Fannie & Freddie - starting in 2001 because it was financially risky for the US economy. And who took the THIRD highest pay-off from Fannie Mae AND Freddie Mac? OBAMA And who fought against reform of Fannie and Freddie? OBAMA and the Democrat Congress So when someone tries to blame Bush.. REMEMBER JANUARY 3rd, 2007.... THE DAY THE DEMOCRATS TOOK OVER!" Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democrat Party. Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for 2008 & 2009 as well as 2010 & 2011. In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush, somewhat belatedly, got tough on spending increases. For 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the 2009 budgets. And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete 2009. If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending . After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets. If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself ! In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is "I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th."

So every poll has him leading the electoral college by a large amount, but it's rigged when he wins. In 2000, when Gore won the popular vote, and a conservative supreme court gave Bush the election without allowing all the votes to be properly counted, that was ok?

Obama will win because he's the better option. Deal with it. The next day the sun will rise and Earth will continue rotating.

Really? I'm sure you can cite a article to back this up from one of those sources.

Much like the claim that CNN and MSNBC were saying how the DNC sucked and all that, you have nothing to back up your claim. With that in mind, it doesn't matter what CNN, MSNBC, or FOX had to say about the DNC, every poll has come out with Obama getting a good size bounce from it, while Romney had zero bounce from the RNC.

Prepare for 4 more years of Obama.

seriously people....WHY would anyone in their right mind vote for Obama? The man was voted in for all the WRONG reasons and has made this country more of a shambles than ever before. I am not a republican - I am an independent..whatever party is BEST for this country. Obama is a socialist and a dictator..WHY are people not seeing this...is everybody drunk? SO many people STILL out of work..SO MANY people underemployed...immigration out of control, government deviously sliding into every facet of our lives, health care at the whim of what, who, where and why as dictated by the government, gas prices out of control, partnerships with known terrorists...WHAT is it going to take for the American people to realize Obama is BAD FOR THIS COUNTRY :( Romney may not be perfect but at least he can offer a chance at balancing the budget and gaining control over the deficit...he at least will stop NO BAMA from bringing America to its knees.

CURL: Crowley skews hard for Obama in disastrous presidential debate
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y.— Another debate, another debacle for America’s media.
In the runup to the second presidential debate, CNN’s Candy Crowley declared that she would not just be a “fly on the wall” as she played the tiny role of moderator, that she would step in whenever she chose to say,“Hey, wait a second, what about X, Y, Z?”
And boy did she, cutting off Republican Mitt Romney repeatedly and often throwing the floor to President Obama with an open “let me give the president a chance here.”
More, she alone decided the topics for the debate, picking questions from the 80 so-called “undecided” voters chosen by the Gallup polling organization. Her selections were tailor-made for Mr. Obama — Mitt Romney’s tax plan, women’s rights and contraception, outsourcing, immigration, the Libya debacle (which gave Mr. Obama to finally say that the buck stops with him, not, as Hillary Clinton said, with her).
She even chose this question, directed to both men:“I do attribute much of America’s economic and international problems to the failings and missteps of the Bush administration. Since both of you are Republicans, I fear the return to the policies of those years should you win this election. What is the biggest difference between you and George W. Bush, and how do you differentiate yourself from George W. Bush?”
Ms. Crowley, who called Mr. Romney’s selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as running mate a “ticket death wish,” asserted her unilateral power at the outset, telling the audience before the cameras went on that she planned to “give the debate direction and ensure the candidates give answers to the questions.”
After both candidates answered Question One, she blurted:“Let me get a more immediate answer”— whatever that means. But when Mr. Romney sought to correct falsehoods told by the president, she cut him off:“We have all these folks here.” In the end, Mr. Obama would get 9 percent more time.
At Question Two, Mr. Obama, asked by Mr. Romney how much he had cut federal oil permits, took over the floor — with Ms. Crowley’s silent approval.“Here’s what happened,” he said as he filibustered for a full minute. Mr. Romney sought to get the last word — as the president had the question before — but the moderator shut him down:“It’ doesn’t quite work like that.”
When Mr. Romney sought to counter Mr. Obama’s assertion after Question Three, Ms. Crowley again cut him off:“Before we get into a vast array….” she said before asking a completely different question.
The next question was pure Obama — workplace inequality (the president mention at every stop his Lily Ledbetter legislation). But the query gave him the platform to demand Americans pay for contraception for all women, saying the governor “feels comfortable having politicians in Washington decide the health care choices that women are making.”
For the record, Mr. Obama spoke for two minutes, then Mr. Romney, then Mr. Obama again. Ms. Crowley then rushed into the next question.
When the immigration question came up, both candidates gave their answers. Then the moderator once again butted in, ordering Mr. Romney to “speak to the idea of self-deportation.”
By then, Mr. Romney had had enough, and talked over her demands.“No, let — let — let me go back and speak to the points the president made and — and — and let’s get them correct.”

At the next question, the moderator lost all control.“Candy,” Mr. Obama said.“Hold on.”“Mr. President,” the governor said,“I’m still speaking.” They mixed it up for a bit, then Ms. Crowley said:“Sit down, Mr. Romney.”

The most shocking exchange took place on the Benghazi attack that left the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three others dead.
Mr. Romney:“You said in the Rose Garden the day after the attack, it was an act of terror? It was not a spontaneous demonstration, is that what you’re saying.”
Mr. Obama made no defense.“Please proceed, governor.”
“I want to make sure,” Mr. Romney said.“Get the transcript,” the president said. Then Ms. Crowley jumped in to do her own fact-check, on the spot.“It — it — it — he did in fact, sir.… He did call it an act of terror.”
The truth is, he didn’t. The day after the attack, he said only this:“No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.” It took another two weeks before the White House would label the attack an act of terror.
The Obama people, of course, loved it — having blamed Mr. Obama’s dismal performance in the first debate on poor moderating.
“He’s back,” said Team O spokeswoman Jen Psaki, who lauded Ms. Crowley for her fact checking.
But then she caught herself and quickly added:“He was never really gone, but he’s back.”
