Obama-LetThemEat EBTCards

Baldwin Park, CA

#1 Nov 1, 2012
Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better.

Seriously, can anyone name one good thing this guy's done for America?

I need not explain how he and his corrupt guttertrash Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.

We need real jobs, not McWalmart jobs.

We also don't need the Obama Administration continuing on it's current path to oblivion without having to worry about re-election. This would be dangerous to our constitution's survival and our pocketbooks.

Romney is owned by the same international bankers as Obama destroying America from overseas.

However by hittig the reset button on the corrupt, power crazed, Obama administration it gives more Americans time to wake up to what is presently happening to America.

In some aspects Obama is right when he says ((("you didn't build/create that, government did.")))

Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years and imagine what he can do with 8:

-Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))

-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can now be disappeared without a jury

-Out of control (((Crony Capitalism))) where government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not the free market eg. Solyndra, GM, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters

-(((Skyrocketing Unemployment and Outsourcing)))-The idea that welfare checks/EBT cards are paychecks

-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant

- Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.

-(((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism

-(((Trickle Down Government))) The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way

-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection

- A (((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps

-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans setting up for social conflict right before the 2012 election

-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)

-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional

-(((No Plan/ or Budget to Fix Anything going forward if he is re-elected )))-always says what you want to hear, then does the exact opposite hoping you''ll forget by the next speech -(((Sociopathic Liar)))

-(((Obamaphone)))-Massive expansion of this program for his dependant voting base

-(((Unlimited QE3 leading to hyperinflation/ monopoly money))) Dollar is rapidly losing purchasing power resulting in skyrocketing food and GAS PRICES (especially for "green gas" in CA)

-(((Needed a tainted Creepy Crawley moderator to hold his hand during the 2nd debate))) who helped him dodge hard questions he couldn't answer -(((weak affirmative action President)))

-(((Benghazi Gate)))???

- My favorite (((Legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not offering immigration reform

- The list goes on.

Is this change you can believe in? Is this what you really want another 4 years of?

As Donald Trump would say: Obama you're fired:



Too bad Ron Paul chickened out.

A private non bureaucratic efforts may be the way to go. The Red Cross has been declared a failure by Staten Island officials.

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/11/01/14...

One might say government efforts are the only way to go but I just saw government officials touring Staten Island. At least Romney was gathering actual supplies/donations before hand.

Mitt Romney held a photo op in Kettering, Ohio,“accepting donations” for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Many items were purchased by campaign staffers from a nearby store and attendees to the rally-turned-relief-effort were asked to bring non-perishable foods and other items for those affected by the super-storm.

Some organizations, while they appreciate assistance from the public, find that stockpiling goods and other items an ineffective way to engage in disaster relief. The American Red Cross is asking for financial donations in the wake of Sandy. If the Romney campaign wanted to best immediate impact, they would have far better served the relief effort by contributing $5,000 in cash instead of spending it on supplies.

Anyone who has ever volunteered for relief efforts following a disaster knows that it only adds work to the relief organizations of their volunteers have to collect canned goods and granola bars. Today’s informed volunteer raises funds so experienced organizations can fund local efforts on the ground and don’t have to lug around often useless items.

In addition, Romney was photographed loading what “appeared to be multiple bags of uncooked rice” onto a truck. What good is uncooked rice for people whose power has gone out?

What a DUMBASS.

Of course teabaggers love him.

Following the “relief” event, however, Romney refused to answer reporters’ questions on whether he would eliminate FEMA, as he had previously indicated. During a CNN debate during the GOP primary, debate moderator John King specifically asked candidate Romney if he would end the federal agency for disaster relief.

“Absolutely,” said Romney.“Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that’s the right direction. And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that’s even better.”

And what you get with the Romney model, especially the “privatization” of disaster relief as was on display in the Romney “relief” event, is a pile of canned goods and no effective relief.

It was one guy.

“All these people making these big salaries should be out there on the front line, and I am disappointed,” a frustrated Borough President James Molinaro said Thursday morning at a press conference with other local officials to talk about the needs of the hard-hit borough.“And my advice to the people of Staten Island is,‘Do not donate to the American Red Cross. Let them get their money elsewhere.’"

Well, where is Mitt with his canned goods?

No joke, Barack tried to get farmers to grow arugula as a cash crop over corn.

Canned foods is the food of choice by Food Banks. They are non-perishable. So is powdered milk and peanut butter/jam. This is just a ploy to make Romney look bad because Barack doesn't have a leg to stand on. He certainly wasn't out there donating much of anything of his own to help Sandy victims. Drinking from a porcelain cup and saucer while staring at the Situation Room like it was reality TV is not leadership material. Probably ordered himself up some arugula and popcorn. At the table, no one else was drinking from porcelain cups. Yup, when Americans get tortured and raped in Libya, jet off to Vegas. When hurricane hits, stay indoors and order up caffe mocha surrounded by greek columns. What a jokeass.

How about where is George Clooney, Oprah, Alec Baldwin, fatso Michael Moore, Samuel Jackson, Sarah Jessica Parker, those movie stars who live in NY especially? These are the one percenters who clearly don't hire thousands of long term employees nor work very hard. So much time on their hands, they are out BSing for Barack. Yet when the crunch comes, very quiet nowhere to be seen.

Herman Cain's father worked for less and built up a fortune. He worked hard along side his wife. Mitt Romney's father worked for less too and built up an empire. Paul Ryan held two jobs as a teenager to help his mother look after their grandmother diagnosed with Alzheimers. Look it, you want to be the CEO of a company, then go for it. You don't want to work hard like they do, sacrefice money and time. You Obama twerps put down managers, executives and businesses, who invest time and money and health into their work every day, past normal working hours, yet you idolize movie stars who are wealthier than small businesses and CEOs, and hire very few people on a long term basis. To answer your narrow minded questions is futile because you have been dumbed down by racism and elitists.

You are disgusting to me because you don't think past superficialities. You spout sound bites that sound good like the OWS and their 99% diatribe based on no truth at all. The 99% is only 47%.

Obama is a GONER, we won't have to see the American flag morphed into an O much longer. His flag pin was so tiny you needed a microscope to see it. He's petty and small, like you. All this for a damn flag, his wife says. As first lady of a country, that is never acceptable by any wife of the leader IN ANY COUNTRY FROM GERMANY TO RUSSIA TO ICELAND.

I bet you voted for George W in his second term election, didn't you? I have a question Yankee Doodle, which country do you think Mitt should invade? Your the one talking about a flag pin when your whole country is in a mess.(Mostly inherited from Bush) Anyone who thinks that a flag pin is important is petty and small. Actually your typical yeehaw rhetoric disgusts me.

I should have mentioned that Canada is stable. Everyone is working.Still have free health care. Our houses are worth more than they did five years ago and we didn't have to blow up another country to achieve that. Go figure???who would have thought that if you put your money back into your own country instead of your military your country would be better off. That's the true difference between the rest of the world and you.
