Really.

You are saying that Obama was not president of Harvard Law Review?

In your demented little mind, when Bolt won the 100 last Olympics, it didn't prove he deserved to be the games.

Being on Law Review means you are among the best students & performers. It proves Obama deserved to be there.

But nooooo, being the racist POS you are, the only way a black guy gets into Harvard is affirmative action. You right wingers are all the same - disgusting excuses for human beings.

Well, it is...and I will.
25 days to see if you can convince former President George W. Bush to attend and Gov. Romney to open his tax records.

"In Fresno, Wednesday, a line to enter the Chick-fil-A on Blackstone stretched nearly 100 yards out the door."

"Lines hundreds of people deep spilled out of a Northridge Chick-fil-A Wednesday afternoon"

"In Englewood, Colo., an overcapacity lunch crowd spilled into the Chick-fil-A parking lot while dozens queued up inside."

"Lines snaked around a Chick-fil-A in Dallas,"

"Customers stand in a long line at the Chick-fil-A in Columbus"

"North Shore Mall in Peabody, MA. Needless to say, the line was at least 150 people deep"

"A massive line of dozens of customers was seen Wednesday morning at a Chick-fil-A in Phoenix."

Now that's how you stimulate the economy.

Every hour so far in 2012, the five largest oil corporations have recorded a $14,400,000 profit. And every hour, they received more than $270,000 in federal tax breaks. That adds up to $2.4 billion in subsidies every year for the five largest oil corporations — Royal Dutch Shell, ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, and ConocoPhillips — all ranked as the top 9 companies in the world.

Even though BP posted an unexpected second-quarter loss, these five companies are on track to meet last year’s record profits. Put these numbers into context, and they are not so “disappointing“: Big Oil profits more in one minute than what 96 percent of American households earn in one year. Even so, Mitt Romney and House Republicans want to double what the five companies receive in federal tax breaks to $12.8 million per day, even though the three publicly owned U.S. companies paid an average tax rate of under 17 percent.

The graphic below illustrates where Big Oil directs these profits and its pollution over the course of a day:

Nearly 12 years after Billleft office, Bill Clinton remains one of our most popular, success for America, wealth makers and compelling Presidents.
-
As a wealth maker many believe, that if the Constitution had allowed, Clinton could have won a third term as president in 2000, despite the sex scandals, his minor perjury rap and his impeachment by the House...
-
The create more poor Obama campaign thinks it can make full use of that popularity, obama and RealDave hating on wealth and success makers, creating more poor, ignoring Clinton's wealth making presidency that still has a lingering association with good economic times, including four years of balanced budgets, creating more wealth for Americans, success creating rock and roll.
-
Obama campaign has triedto lie and paint Romney's record at Bain Capital as one of plant closings and job outsourcing, Yet Clinton praised Romney's "sterling business career" and said he was more than qualified to run for president, with success wealth and more...
-
Wealth making, and America's sucess that perhaps is the upside of Clinton's greatest political asset: Bill's impossible to ignore...
-
Even though Bill helping Hillary in 2016 Clinton still musters a lot of wealthy good times, success and political upbeat firepower and more.
-
The Fruit of Islam... Or... The Fruit of Loon... RealDave??

It's the culture...

WTF? Are you on drugs? My post was in reply to this

"How Obama got into college & how it was paid is definitely more important than Romney's Tax returns that would show how Romney invested heavily in overseas companies instead of jobs here in the US & how he utilized every trick in the book to avoid paying taxes.
You people get dumber every f*cking day."

Everything you said about Romney is speculation.

I guess being outed as a bigot really threw you for a loop!

To estimate how average household tax burdens among different income groups would change as a result of this shift, we assume that the available tax expenditures are curtailed “from the top down” in order to make the tax plan as progressive as possible…Even after eliminating all available tax expenditures for households earning more than $200,000, this group still faces a net tax break. Americans making over $1 million would see an increase in after-tax income of 4.1 percent (an $87,000 tax cut), those making between $500,000 and $1 million would see an increase of 3.2 percent (a $17,000 tax cut), and those making between $200,000 and $500,000 would see an increase of 0.8 percent (a $1,800 tax cut).

Because taxpayers above $200,000 as a group have received a net tax cut, revenue neutrality requires that taxpayers below $200,000—about 95 percent of the population—experience a tax increase.

Here’s how the plan would affect the average taxpayer in each income group. As the column labeled “revenue neutral” shows, all taxpayers making less than $200,000 would see their taxes go up by hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars. In particular, families with children would see their taxes go up by $2,041, on average:

The infighting is getting worse between supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul and some state leaders of the Republican Party as the GOP national convention approaches.

The latest developments include the decision by establishment Republicans in Maine to challenge the roster of Paul delegates from that state. The Republicans filed a challenge last weekend with the Republican National Committee, arguing that Paul forces used unauthorized procedures and broke party rules at the state convention when they captured more delegates than presumptive nominee Mitt Romney.

Democrat gathering at the Convention to focus on Clinton's good times making America rich, not obama sellout and making and creating more poor...
-
The 2012 Democratic convention speaker schedule is focused on one big thing: Bill Clinton, a throwback, a replay to the 1990s when a Democratic president oversaw economic wealth, success and good times in America and everything was rock and roll...
-
Bill Clinton is a gifted speaker, rated better than a teleprompter Obama himself.
-
But more importantly, the last Democrat in the White House presided over eight years of Wealthy America, success and prosperity from 1993 to 2001 compared with the economic sellout times, of create more poor, hate success, hate the rich and wealth makers times during Obama's administration loving the poor.
-
AND... The former Arkansas governor is also more highly rated than Obama among white voters, especially working people, wealth makers and rich galore..
-
Verses a sellout Obama, hating on the wealthy, hating success and creating more soldout poor...
-
It's the culture...
