Of course, because you represent some of our brightest I'm sure ---- negative annual return for the whole presidency. Now, Obama as such a terrible President, what has he done? Oh, the S & P 500 has been positive every year and people have doubled their wealth over that period of time. The contrast is amazing, yet, you just can't get your head around it. Try a little math...it hurts but it helps in measuring what is REALLY going on.
The only reason the markets are doing better is that we keep printing money like there's no tomorrow. Once that stops, say byebye to all those gains.

The markets have been artificially inflated and will fail.

Unemployment is still stagnant and GDP growth is pitiful at best. If these numbers were better, then the action in the market would be real, but it isn't.

Think about that.

Oh, who had control of Congress for two years prior to the collapse...the Dems.

Christie sees wrting on the wall!!!

Republicans Fuming Over Chris Christie's Senate Decision
The New Jersey governor's decision to hold the Senate race in October 2013 means it will be difficult for the GOP to contest the seat.

Republicans are fuming over New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's decision to hold an early special election to fill the seat of the late Sen. Frank Lautenberg, with several Washington-based operatives suggesting he's putting his own interests ahead of the GOP's. The decision to hold a separate special election in October 2013—just two weeks before his own election—would give any interested Republican candidates little time to announce, organize a campaign, and raise the necessary money to take on a top-tier Democrat, likely Newark Mayor Cory Booker.

Christie announced at a Tuesday press conference that the election to fill Lautenberg's seat will be held Oct. 16, just before his own gubernatorial election on Nov. 4. The primaries would be scheduled for Aug. 13. Christie acknowledged he was legally able to schedule a special election in November 2014, but he wanted New Jersey voters to elect their senator as soon as possible. Christie was less clear about whether he was legally allowed to schedule an election to coincide with his own, emphasizing that he didn't want to waste any time in seating the newly elected member. On several occasions, he repeated his decision had nothing to do with politics.

Teabaggers arent happy with his decision,but then again they arent happy at all these days.
BOO HOO!

With Hispanics, Mitt Romney hasn’t learned his lesson

Mitt Romney is back — and so is his foot.

As reported in The Wall Street Journal, Romney is planning on re-emerging in ways that will “help shape national priorities,” such as assisting the Republican Party as it tries to regain its footing with the non-white voters who ignored the GOP standard-bearer at the polls in 2012

Yes, the man known for favoring the term “self-deportation” and offending scores of Hispanics by using the word “illegals” over and over again during prime-time presidential debates wants to give Republicans advice on reaching out to minorities.

Romney told the Journal that in addition to wishing his campaign had poured more money into ads targeting Hispanic voters, the GOP needs “to translate our message in a way that minorities understand.”

Honestly, of all the slips Romney committed during last year’s campaign — from letting his staffers tell Spanish-language media that he was struggling with Latinos because they were simply not well-informed to never calling out his fellow Republicans for using degrading language when speaking about immigrants or Hispanics — this latest is probably the most insulting.

Some Latino advocates spent the year leading up to the election painting him as a racist for not compromising on his views toward illegal immigration. But I always thought his biggest failure as a candidate was his inability to connect with people who aren’t rich and privileged. His terrible tone-deafness for non-whites was a close second.

Let’s unpack his recent comment starting with the tricky, loaded word “translate.” My first impression was that Romney used the word because he, like so many others, still believes that most Hispanics can’t speak English.

If the GOP doesnt embrace the blacks,latinos,gays, womens rights they can never get their white guy in the Whitehouse.

So let the tea baggers yak away, it wont help!

Obama has everything under control for the next 3 years!!

All the whining and screaming and posting from the soggy tea baggers on Topix cant stop it!

John Boehner who - after attending meetings in 2008 regarding the economy crashing - cashed on on his mutual fund knowing full well it was about to tank and then blamed this insider trading on his broker, wants accountability.

John Boehner, who promised Wall Street executives he'll do everything he can to fight Wall Street Reform, wants accountability..

I can go on with several examples of how absurd this demand of his is, but it's getting late, and who has that much time. If I were to start in the 1990s when he passed out tobacco lobbyists checks on the floors of Congress, literally, that would take hours.

Whiskey soaked Boehner and his consort McConnell are still singularly devoted to bring down Obama. As little as I regard the US voters (Bush-Cheney, twice!) these twins are shooting themselves in the foot with the voters.

John Boehner wants accountability for something his own party has done against the democrats time and time again. When, Mr. Boehner is someone going to jail for taking us into a war that cost thousands of American lives ? When is someone going to jail for throwing our economy under a bus instead of being protected by our Congress? When are our big corporations going to pay their fair share of taxes instead of being sheilded by our congress? When are you going to stop big energy companies from ruining our ground water supplies in this country? And number one when are our representatives and senators going to start working with our President instead of always working against him

Obama administration defends Verizon phone record collection
The Obama administration on Thursday defended its collection of a massive amount of telephone records from at least one carrier as part of U.S. counterterrorism efforts, re-igniting a debate over privacy even as it called the practice critical to protecting Americans from attacks.
The admission came after Britain's Guardian newspaper published on Wednesday a secret court order related to the records of millions of Verizon Communications customers. The surveillance appears to have involved the phone records of millions of Americans.

Republicans do not govern. They have no intention of governing. Government is nothing but a money making tool for them and their friends. In lieu of good governance they continually chase one contrived "scandal" after another. In almost every case the allegations prove to be false, but they don't care because they aren't out to actually "serve justice" on someone for something they themselves have done repeatedly. They are only out to manipulate the media cycle through the elections. And the media fall for it every single time because the media doesn't care about the truth. The media only cares about ratings. It's a vicious circle that has destroyed our government.

NSA collecting phone records of millions of Verizon customers daily
Exclusive: Top secret court order requiring Verizon to hand over all call data shows scale of domestic surveillance under Obama
The National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecoms providers, under a top secret court order issued in April.
The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an "ongoing, daily basis" to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its systems, both within the US and between the US and other countries.
The document shows for the first time that under the Obama administration the communication records of millions of US citizens are being collected indiscriminately and in bulk – regardless of whether they are suspected of any wrongdoing.

Lindsey Graham [R]‘glad’ NSA tracking phones

Frequent critic of the White House Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is defending the National Security Agency’s reported collection of millions of Americans’ phone calls, saying he’s more concerned about terrorism.

“I’m glad the NSA is trying to find out what the terrorists are up to overseas and in our country,” Graham said Thursday morning on “Fox & Friends.”

As a customer of Verizon, the subject of the court order, Graham said he and others had nothing to worry about.

“I’m a Verizon customer. I don’t mind Verizon turning over records to the government if the government is going to make sure that they try to match up a known terrorist phone with somebody in the United States. I don’t think you’re talking to the terrorists. I know you’re not. I know I’m not. So we don’t have anything to worry about.”

And Graham assured the hosts that the surveillance was limited to terrorism.

The NSA warrantless surveillance controversy (AKA "Warrantless Wiretapping") concerns surveillance of persons within the United States during the collection of foreign intelligence by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA) as part of the war on terror. Under this program, referred to by the Bush administration as the "terrorist surveillance program",[1] part of the broader President's Surveillance Program, the NSA was authorized by executive order to monitor, without search warrants, the phone calls, Internet activity (Web, e-mail, etc.), text messaging, and other communication involving any party believed by the NSA to be outside the U.S., even if the other end of the communication lies within the U.S. Critics, however, claimed that it was in an effort to attempt to silence critics of the Bush Administration and their handling of several hot button issues during its tenure. Under public pressure, the Bush administration ceased the warrantless wiretapping program in January 2007 and returned review of surveillance to the FISA court

NY Times Editorial: Administration Has 'Lost All Credibility'
The New York Times editorial board, which twice endorsed President Obama and has championed many planks of his agenda, on Thursday turned on the president over the government's mass collection of phone data -- saying the administration has 'lost all credibility.'

Maybe it's because he's black. LOL
