NEWSFLASH - DEFENSE DEPARTMENT'S PRIMARY FUNCTION IS NOW TO ASSURE THE RE-ELECTION OF OUR FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT!

All other considerations are to take a back seat. The Egoist-in-Chief has his priorities straight, the rest of the country can go suck eggs. Nuclear Iran? No big deal. 20,000 dead in Syria. Who cares? China's military growing by leap & bounds. Unimportant. Terrorist got a huge break because the Prez wanted to brag 5 minutes after the Seals killed Osama. Are you some sort of racist traitor? Of course His Smallness endless bragging trumps the hunt for other terrorist! How else is the he going to puff himself up? His other policies have all failed!

Yes, we are all seeing the Amazing Shrinking President get even smaller. It's all about him! America can go f&ck itself, because it's a racist nation if we do not re-elect Obama.

does your plan include ending section 8 housing, EBT cards, food stamps, earned income credit, and stopping welfare queens from reproducing every 9 months to get more money?
Yes. Something like that. People will have to prove they both need it, and aren't scamming the system by forcing them to work for it. If they don't identify the father, they are cut off. A generational limit as well. First, we take a look at families that have been on it for 3 or more generations and cut them off immediately.

If you can prove he did anything illegal, sure......but you can't. You be fishing because that's all you got for deflection of Obama's hiding his own records and his failed policy.

you see le jimbo your answer just shows you are a hypocrite. why does everyone want to see obama's college transcripts? can you prove there is something illegal there? no not until we see them. the same goes for mitt romneys tax returns. both men have something to hide and i'd love to see obama's transcripts but i also believe you need to hold them all to the same standard. so what is romney hiding in his tax returns?
all your aswer does is show to just be an obama hater and a hypocrite or a partisan hack and a hypocrite. maybe both....

Talk about desperation.....If Obama was really as far ahead as you and marxist media try to claim......he wouldn't be so desperated with the whopper lies in his ads that are proven lies before the ink dries.......

If liberals had a winner they wouldn't have picked an empty worthless suit.

Obama:

Budgets accepted in 4 years..........none
Solutions proposed in 4 years..........none
Net Jobs created in 4 years..........none
Economy solutions in 4 years..........none
Taxes proposed in 4 years..........Many
Regulations added in 4 years..........Many
Jobs Killed in 4 years..........Millions
vacations in 4 years..........Many
Golf outings in 4 years..........104
Campaign stops on our dime..........Many

Done: Affordable Care Act..........21 new taxes
17 on middle class

Nothing to do with health care.........Just taxes, government control and power grabs.

Four More Years..........For What?

FLASH: THIS JUST IN FROM THE NON PROPAGANDA NETWORK………In looking at the Ryan Plan for Medicare Reform you must first wade through the lies and misinformation of the liberals and their pimps in the MSM press. IF YOU ARE 55 OR ABOVE……THERE IS NO CHANGE. THE CHANGE ARE FOR THOSE YOUNG ENOUGH TO MAKE AN ADJUSTMENT NOW SO MEDICARE OR HEALTH CARE WILL BE THERE FOR THEM WHEN THEY NEED IT.

OBAMA AND THE LIBERALS SCARE TATICS ARE PURE LIES MENT TO SCARE GRANDMA AND INFLUENCE FLORIDA VOTERS. The same tactics they have used for 20 years, since they can’t run on their record of failure and misery.

Rob Wyden is the Democratic party member that co-wrote the Ryan Plan. He is from Oregon a known liberal state. Ryans plan is a bipartisan plan, where None of Obama's trillion dollar ideas ever received one vote from either party.
