Obama's a Liar in Chief!

What do you expect from him?

Most divisive president ever.

He isolates himself and implements crazy ass programs and NOBODY knows what's in the policies and programs

Remember Bart Stupak. He was a deciding vote on ObamaCare and said he was promised NO abortion item in ObamaCare. They lied to him and he FAILED to investigate.

But that does happen when the democrats completely shut the door on republicans when it came to healthcare. They wouldn't let them participate.

Remember Nancy Pelosi saying, "we'll know what's in the bill AFTER it passes".

That's democrats for you. OUT with all of them in 2012. Reclaim the Senate, keep Pelosi out as Speaker and get rid of Obama.

Obama LIES!

With the cash he has collected, if he is not deemed a second term, no-one will know a choice is available.

Guess he knows he can't get elected on his own merit, his own record.

So, go for the gold to buy the best PROPAGANDA that MONEY CAN BUY.

It means that now the good guys will be able to raise 2 billion dollars instead of 1billion to fight the lies of the unpatriotic right-wing republicans/tea-baggers as we re-elect our Osama-killing President.
Iím glad that President Obama came around on this issue; you have to fight fire with fire and I say we raise enough money to by the company that makes the matches and the fire department, LOL.
That's the same argument you made in the last election... that Obama chose private funding over public (flip-flop) to defend himself against lies.

But I can see your point... after four years he actually has a record and a multitude of speeches from which to cite for him to defend his positions -- and it's gonna take a whole lot of money to refute himself.

Put another way, Obama opts to bulldoze 'em with bullshyt.

This is a character issue, can the OCCUPATION be trusted, can the leader of the OCCUPATION be trusted.
Don't confuse this with the Tea Party, OCCUPATION confusion was attempted and it has failed.
