New Challenges Await Obama The Candidate

There are 32 comments on the KSAT story from Jan 8, 2011, titled New Challenges Await Obama The Candidate. In it, KSAT reports that:

He promised change, and he looked the part. No longer. The Barack Obama of 2011 is a chief executive who confronts enormous challenges, chief among them the economy, as he starts building a re-election campaign far different from the juggernaut of optimism and trajectory that vaulted him to the White House.

Bring Obama Back!

President Obama has the gift that keeps on giving… his opposition. The best thing that could have happen for this President is the House in the hands of the crazies. If the first 3 days of control of the House in the hands of the republicans is any indication, President Obama will be re-elected in a landslide; especially if that dumb bimbo Sarah Palin is the GOP’s nominee.
Oh by the way, the republicans control the House now… where are the jobs?

Obama is challenged by the real truth that his policies are damaging our nation.

He needs to stop Lying, Start Listening to the People and Stop working for his Bankers.

Obama refused to work on the most important issue which was the Jobs situation.

Instead, he played golf, vacationed at the Taj Majal, Hawaii, Martha's Vineyard and started cramming bad legislation down our throats that cast Trillions of dollars we didn't have!

Obama's Poverty? Waaaay Too High. No end in sight either.

Obaama's Trickle Up Poverty has gripping the Nation. He's strangling everyone with a Poverty Level not seen in Decades of 15.7%.

That's Up from his record 14.3% in 2009.

Obama's National Debt Crisis? Waaaaay too High. No End in sight with Obama Deficits projected for Years & Years.

Obama voted Against Raising the Debt Ceiling in 2006, then refused to Vote on it all at in 2007 & 08. Now the asshat says we MUST Raise it or his house of cards will collapse. Didn't we hear that sack of manure from him about his Bail Outs? Yep!

It's time to restore sanity but Obama keeps spending Trillions with new program after new program. He's is the PROBLEM.

The Interest payment on the National Debt will cost about the same as our Military budget next year. That's how bad it's gotten.

We can save $550 BILLION DOLLARS by Repealing Obamacare yet the asshat refuses to see the truth.

It is Obama's Budget that is Broken yet he refuses to Offer ANY Fixes to close the 1400 BILLION or $1.4 Trillion Dollar "Budget" Deficit!

It’s always harder to run as the incumbent than as the opposition challenger. The incumbent has to run on his/her record having no wiggle room. While the challenger can promise the sun, moon, and stars to the electorate. And it follows, when elected and they can’t deliver on those promises, it’s the other party’s fault.
For Obama to be reelected it will be as simple (to say harder to fix) as “It’s the economy stupid”.
Icing on the cake would be pulling all troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan. That move will score major points with Americans

Agree. Obama's problem is he's ignored the economy for 2 years and escalated the war four times with a new commitment through 2014.

By that time, the National Debt will have exceeded out entire GDP and Interest payments on it will equal the Entire Military Budget! Obama's put our country into terrible shape.

Odummy is dead meat. Unemployment will remain above 9% and the price of gasoline will hit $4.00 per gallon.

Both of these situations could have been avoided if he had gotten off of his deadass and focused on jobs rather than that abortion of an odummycare bill. He is the one who forced a moratorium on drilling in the Gulf and the democrats are the ones who blocked drilling in ANWAR.

When the democrats lose both the Senate and the White House in 2012 they will cry like the bunch of empty headed babies that they are, but they will have no one to blame but themselves.

Sorry to say, we ain't leaving Iraq. We'll be stuck in Afghanistan, too.

Why is the focus in this country on inner city poor when we have the travesty of Appalachia STILL present in our country?

Inner cities have more than Appalachia.

Rockfeller is a lousy senator.

It will be interesting yet sad to watch the surrendercrats and their enablers in the media create a new set of lies and false promises to break.

Republicrumbs are the scum of the earth. Their LEADER is a CRIMINAL many times over.

"Congressman Darrell Issa, the man with the nerve to call the Obama Administration "corrupt," knows a thing or two about corruption. After all, the man has been arrested at least 3 times over the years for things like possessing an illegal weapon and stealing cars. That's right - the man in charge of investigations for the House is a former car thief."

"There will be, in the next few days, painstaking efforts to uncover and understand the background of Jared Lee Loughner, the alleged shooter of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. And right now reporters are generally going off of bits of information taken, primarily, from Google searches.

The most illustrative window is Loughner’s YouTube account, which appears to be hub of anti-government zealotry, obsession over currency and language standards, and, to put it bluntly, outright paranoia.

“In conclusion, reading the second United States Constitution, I can’t trust the current government because of the ratifications: the government is implying mind control and brainwash on the people by controlling grammar,” he writes in one video posting.“No! I won’t pay debt with a currency that’s not backed by gold and silver! No! I won’t trust in God!”

Here is a link to Loughner’s YouTube site.

There are also some biographical details that can be culled from the page. Loughner attended Mountain View High School, Northwest Aztec Middle College, and Pima Community College. He also appears to have been in the armed forces, at one point in time.

“Every United States Military recruit at MEPS in Phoenix is receiving one mini bible before the tests,” he writes in one video.“Jared Loughner is a United States Military recruit at MEPS in Phoenix Therefore, Jared Loughner is receiving one mini bible before the tests."

Republicrumbs are the scum of the earth:

26% of Americans - all of them Republicrumb scum anti-American Nazis - want to repeal the health care law.

35% of Americans want to EXPAND and DO MORE with the health care law. It did not go FAR ENOUGH.

Blue Shield of CA: 59% increase SINCE OCTOBER in premiums.

Increase in costs: 7-9% which is highly questionable since across the country it is a couple of percent, the lowest in years.

Republicrumbs = anti American scum of the earth and everyone knows it.

Bumya Bush: losing 850,000 jobs A MONTH
Obama: adding 100,000 jobs A MONTH

Clinton: budget surplus on track to PAY OFF the national debt by 2010
Bumya Bush: doubled national debt by 2010

Republicrumbs cannot govern their fat arses out of a paper bag. Republicrumbs are not only evil, they are WORTHLESS.

The FED (Repubicans) decide if the economy will flourish or not. Once the Republicans depleted the treasury after 8 years of BUSH, they got their BANKSTER BAILOUT. President Obama agreed and got elected. The economy is held hostage to Republicans, like the Clinton and Carter years. Carter had scruples and failed. Clinton didn't have scruples and succeeded. He did what the Republicans wanted. I think President Obama will pull a Clinton. The economy will improve. He will get re-elected. We will all see fake gains and then our economy will free fall in 2016. Republicans will control all three branches again. It's sad, predictable. I guess We the People have no choice, but to accept it.
