I'm sure the racial hating warrior tea bag really believes Charles and David Koch of Koch industries really invested all that money against president Obama only to be secretly preying for a Obama victory, huh warrior tea bag? It is no secret the heritage foundation funded started and heavily funded by the Koch brothers. The heritage foundation will say any thing in a study that promotes the wishes of deep pockets of David and Charles. President Obama wants to end there special tax breaks and big oil subsidies. How do you think they feel about that? Heritage think tank feels the same

President Obama wants to end there special tax breaks and big oil subsidies. How do you think they feel about that?

//////////

The White House denied it had obtained secret information about Koch's taxes, and told Politico's Ben Smith that its information came from Koch's own Web site as well as from the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board's report on tax reform.

The White House is right about the availability of information, but that doesn't excuse what went down Aug. 27.

.
.

Three disturbing things stand out from that briefing.

First, it smacks of the smear tactics taught by community organizer and Barack Obama mentor Saul Alinsky.

By singling out Koch, the White House appears to be making the company victim No. 1 of the "pick a target, freeze it, personalize it and polarize it" method that Alinsky used to silence an opponent.

Obama has practiced this before, with administration attacks on Fox News, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. So it's not surprising his administration is going after the Koch brothers.

As they were taking direct fire from the White House, the Koches were subjects of poorly sourced and innuendo-filled articles in pro-Obama publications such as the New Yorker and the New York Times, all making the brothers the new bogeymen.

This wouldn't be so noteworthy if it weren't for the fact that these same outlets had participants on a secretive listserv called JournoList, whose members have been caught conspiring to manipulate political "narratives" and which had connections to the White House. JournoList is now supposedly defunct, but the White House reply to Koch came to Politico's Smith, who was known to be a list member.

.
.
.

Second, even if all the information gathered about Koch was public, the White House is still signaling it will try to dig up dirt on any company or individual it sees as an adversary.

Obama supporters showed they're capable of such vindictiveness in 2008, when some conducted illegal record searches on Joe Wurzelbacher, the plumber who asked embarrassing questions of Obama on the campaign trail.

.
.
.

Third, there was a sly semantic trick in implying that the company, which has registered several of its entities as "S" corporations, LLCs and LPs - all of which are perfectly legal and legitimate ways of doing business - was somehow evading taxes.

Though the White House official decried that Koch didn't pay corporate taxes, that doesn't mean it paid no taxes.

The private company does indeed pay taxes - through personal returns and alternative means rather than the corporate code.

The White House, in its reply to the Koch lawyer, asked that people read the August 2010 report on Tax Reform Options.

The report (which never mentions Koch Industries) suggests that the U.S. corporate tax code is so unworkable and inefficient that a company would be stupid to register under the corporate code when other tax regimes, such as those Koch has chosen, are available.

For a White House so keen on searching the Koch Web site, it's interesting that its operatives don't seem to have read that report.

Instead, they seem obsessed with silencing the political activities of a company simply exercising its rights of free speech.

Not at all Obama is another puppet, the controlled implosion of the economy is by design, these banks want all of our wealth. Look at Greece - it is their beta test - and Spain.
We 'borrow' the Federal Reserve Bank's fairy tale currency and they steal our land/gold/oil/labor and anything else of real substance they can grab. We get left having to repay an impossible debt.
Austerity coming to America soon.
That's an outright lie...

The implosion took place under your pal GW..

Obama was left to clean it up and that's a fact jack...

You're not thinking straight...

So, where do you get this friggin fairy tale information anyway.?
I know you're not making it up. Or is it coming from your vivid imagination?
I doubt that you probably have a "reliable" souce..

C'mon share your sources with us...this stuff is so friggin outlandish it must be Glenn Beck.
Id put money on the Beckster...do you watch his show on Direct TV?

That's what you think? You think Mifflin County went 3 to 1 for Romney because the US economy is better now by every objective measure than when Obama was elected the first time?

No, any county that went 3 to 1 for Romney was clearly voting on something OTHER than objective reality and the facts on the ground.

New home construction is up 41%.

Builder confidence rose to its highest level in six and a half years, according to a survey by the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo.

Their index of builder sentiment rose to 46 this month, up from 41 in October.

It was the highest reading since May 2006, just before the housing bubble burst.

Readings below 50 signal negative sentiment about the housing market.

The index has been rising since October 2011, when it was 17. It has surged 27 points in the past 12 months, the sharpest annual increase on record.

Housing starts are 87 percent above the annual rate of 478,000 in April 2009, the recession low.

That's still short of the 1.5 million annual rate considered healthy.

The Fed is buying $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities a month to boost housing and fuel growth and employment.

Bernanke said the open-ended purchases would continue until the labor market improved significantly.

“We’re not going to rush to begin to tighten policy,” he said.

“We’re going to give it some time to make sure that the economy is well established.”

No, any county that went 3 to 1 for Romney was clearly voting on something OTHER than objective reality and the facts on the ground.

//////////

The table shows that Romney received no votes in 17 precincts in Cleveland.

Romney also was shut out in one precinct in East Cleveland.

PolitiFact Ohio also checked the 2008 results for Cuyahoga County.

We found that John McCain got no votes in 18 precincts then, or the same total that denied any votes to Romney.

CBS News took note of the shutout precincts in Cuyahoga County while reporting that Romney also received no votes in 59 voting divisions in Philadelphia.

.........

That's what you think?

You think Mifflin County went 3 to 1 for Romney because the US economy is better now by every objective measure than when Obama was elected the first time?
