Obama had 4 years to change the country for the better.

Seriously, can anyone name one good thing this guy's done for America?

I need not explain how he and his corrupt guttertrash Chicago mafia handlers have made everything worse. Simply look around with your own lying eyes for proof.

We need real jobs, not McWalmart jobs.

We also don't need the Obama Administration continuing on it's current path to oblivion without having to worry about re-election. This would be dangerous to our constitution's survival and our pocketbooks.

Romney is owned by the same international bankers as Obama destroying America from overseas.

However by hittig the reset button on the corrupt, power crazed, Obama administration it gives more Americans time to wake up to what is presently happening to America.

In some aspects Obama is right when he says ((("you didn't build/create that, government did.")))

Let's look at what this administration has created in 4 short years and imagine what he can do with 8:

-Socialist eugenics based health care (((Obamacare)))

-NDAA (((National Defense Authorization Act))) where Americans can now be disappeared without a jury

-Out of control (((Crony Capitalism))) where government picks winners and losers based on payouts -not the free market eg. Solyndra, GM, MF Global, Numerous Bank Bailouts, No Prosecution of criminal Banksters

-(((Skyrocketing Unemployment and Outsourcing)))-The idea that welfare checks/EBT cards are paychecks

-(((Fast and Furious))) and other suspected domestic false flags to argue for abolishing the 2nd ammendmant

- Massive (((TSA expansion))) onto America's streets and armed (((survellance drones/now blimps))) operating over US territory.

-(((UN control of U.S. military troops to invade))) Egypt, Syria, parts of Africa, etc. for offshore bankers aka Nazism

-(((Trickle Down Government))) The idea that nothing can be built without (((more government bureaucrats and global warming regulations/taxes))) getting in the way

-(((Throwing Israel -an important ally- under the bus))) by destabalizing all the county's around it but not offering them any assurances of protection

- A (((continuation of Bush's failed policies))), like not getting out of Iraq, Afghanastan, and no closing of Guantanamo torture camps

-(((Polaraized race relations))) eg. Disrespectful hadling of the Treyvon Martin family after his murder -opportunistic my son would have looked like Treyvon soundbite- and media staged racial infighting between Americans setting up for social conflict right before the 2012 election

-(((No Proof Obama supposedly got Osama)))) America was never really allowed to see the body/proof ; -)

-(((Defunding of NASA))) No exploration of the stars for the U.S., leave that to countries that are exceptional

-(((No Plan/ or Budget to Fix Anything going forward if he is re-elected )))-always says what you want to hear, then does the exact opposite hoping you''ll forget by the next speech -(((Sociopathic Liar)))

-(((Obamaphone)))-Massive expansion of this program for his dependant voting base

-(((Unlimited QE3 leading to hyperinflation/ monopoly money))) Dollar is rapidly losing purchasing power resulting in skyrocketing food and GAS PRICES (especially for "green gas" in CA)

-(((Needed a tainted Creepy Crawley moderator to hold his hand during the 2nd debate))) who helped him dodge hard questions he couldn't answer -(((weak affirmative action President)))

-(((Benghazi Gate)))???

- My favorite (((Legalizing the illegals))) temporarily until the election is over but not offering immigration reform

- The list goes on.

Is this change you can believe in? Is this what you really want another 4 years of?

As Donald Trump would say: Obama you're fired:

NY Mayor needs to go on a NON-Dairy diet.

No binding cheese and milk that creates artifical layors of stomach lining that causes blocks in arteries from its own fat content.

Appropriate food intake is about 8oz of food. If you take a multi-vitamin remember IT IS a daily meal suppliment, all 3 course meals and snack. DOnt eat if you take a vitamin.

If you want to detoxify for 2 months, try four wheat thin crackers and a thin spread on it, and water.

I bet he is wealthy, many men of size are. Dont eat foods grown off your state soils, Especially if your religious.

Ford up 10% this month, no stimulus. Ford is part of the "auto industry!" Nobama did nothing

1,400 terroists caputured by Bush, not nobama, only kills with prediaors. DuH

Bin Laden found because the terroists Bush captured gave the name of the courier who revealed the doctor who gave the location of thecoompound, Jughead.

The only jobs cerated during obama's 4 years have been in the red states with republican leadership, low taxes and low regulations.

Republican house sent many bills for jobs and other programs to the dem senate which were ignored. Who the hell are the obstructionists? The senate, dem majority.

Nobama's OWN budget request voted down 441-0 in the house and 98-0 in the senate.

If bullshit could bounce, boy. You'd be in orbit!

Unemployment down to 8% for one month due to hundreds of thousands of workers leaving the job force?
True! But also consider these factors.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics gave a preliminary annual estimate upwards of 386,000 jobs attached to March 2012
http://www.bls.gov/ces/cesprelbmk.htm
In accordance with usual practice, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is announcing the preliminary estimate of the upcoming annual benchmark revision to the establishment survey employment series. The final benchmark revision will be issued on February 1, 2013, with the publication of the January 2013 Employment Situation news release.

The preliminary estimate of the benchmark revision indicates an UPWARD adjustment to March 2012 Total nonfarm employment of 386,000 (0.3 percent).

-----
The BLS also adjusted UPWARDS the number of American Jobs for August and September

http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.nr0.ht...

The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for July was revised from +141,000 to +181,000, and the change for August was revised from +96,000 to +142,000.
----------

The BOTTOM LINE is that the BLS made REVISIONS UPWARD amounting to 472,000 new jobs and that was what led significantly to the drop in the Unemployment Rate. BLS Revisions right before an election sound very suspect.

And what makes the jobs report worse, from the same BLS source.

"The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers) rose from 8.0 million in August to 8.6 million in September."

That is right 600,000 Americans went from full-time to part time work.

Emperor Bloomberg, the whiny, nasal, effete big government liberal incompetent coward shows his true colors once again.

The coward endorses Obama a few days before the election, after calculating that Obama is likely to win the election.

Emperor Bloomberg, like Governor Blimpie Christie of NJ, is looking for cash from the federal government, most of which will be wasted, and spent on his connected cronies, just like after 9/11. But there is enough money to hold the marathon and generate electricity in Central Park - privately funded, they will tell you. Bullschlitz!!! The marathon costs the city plenty of resources, just in terms of security. Emperor Bloomberg is showing his elitism once again.

Good luck NYers. You need it. As if a natural disaster is not enough, you have "leaders" busy trying to exploit it for political advantage.

Ford did receive $5.9 billion in government loans ( from the Dept. of Energy) in 2009 to retool its manufacturing plants to produce more fuel-efficient cars, and the company lobbied for and benefited from the cash-for-clunkers program — contrary to the ad’s testimonial that Ford is “standing on their own."

Bloomberg, Cuomo, and Obama tell the desparate citizens on Staten Island to shut up and prepare for the NY Marathon.

After all, the Party must go on. Let Them Eat Cake is the perfect motto for Bloomberg and his Marxist/Socialist buddies. As long as OTHERS suffer, who cares???

Maybe the Marathon crowd will toss some bottled water or a scrap of an energy bar to the pitiful citizen families.

Aw, how sweet. And, so Progressive!!!

Bloomberg is pandering.

Everyone from former Vice President Al Gore to Gov. Cuomo has chimed in to blame climate change for Sandy. But calling a single, rogue superstorm “the new norm” is misleading, if not downright naïve.

Extreme weather events have plagued mankind for all of recorded history. We have records of massive hurricanes striking what’s now New York as far back as the mid-13th century. The New England Hurricane of 1938 killed more than 700 people — 60 in New York alone. Hurricane Edna, in 1954, killed 29 and caused massive damage. Catastrophic hurricanes also hit in 1821 and 1894.

Yes, Sandy was the second tropical storm to impact New York in as many years, after Irene last August. But these storms don’t even start to compare with the frequency of tropical storms that threatened New York in the mid-1950s.

In 1955, two hurricanes — Connie and Diane — struck in the same month, causing significant flooding in the city. And the frequency of tropical storms to make landfall at or near NYC in the 2000s wasn’t as great as in the 1990s. New norm?

In New England, category five hurricanes — top of the line on the Saffir-Simpson scale — struck in 1938 (New England Hurricane) and 1960 (Donna). Category four storms struck in 1944 (Great Atlantic Hurricane), 1961 (Esther), 1985 (Gloria) and 1999 (Floyd). Category three storms struck in 1954 (Carol and Edna), 1955 (Diane), 1966 (Alma), 1976 (Belle), 1991 (Bob) and 1996 (Bertha).

On average, a major hurricane made landfall in New England every 3.5 years from 1938 to 1966. Since 1966, it’s been just every 9.2 years — with none since 1999. New norm?

That list spells out what Williams and Cantore conveniently ignored: Tropical storms were more frequent in the 1950s than at any previous point in the 20th century or at any point since. In fact, 10 major hurricanes struck the East Coast between North Carolina and New England from 1954 to 1960.

As hurricane expert Judith Curry of Georgia Tech points out on her Web site, and as meteorologist Joe Bastardi echoed in a Fox News interview, ocean temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere are now in the same cycle as in the 1950s.

The Atlantic is going through its warm cycle while the Pacific is going through its cold cycle — a perfectly normal pattern in the oceans’ ebb and flow between warm and cool anomalies. The El Nino Southern Oscillation, a measure of warming and cooling in the tropical Pacific known as El Nino and La Nina, also matches the pattern in the ’50s.

As evidenced by the 1950s, this pattern tends to steer large tropical storms toward the eastern seaboard.

In other words, it has everything to do with a natural cycle of Mother Nature and nothing to do with global warming.

Seven years ago, we were told that Katrina’s devastatation of New Orleans was just the beginning. But Mother Nature didn’t play along; the Atlantic Basin experienced unusually quiet hurricane seasons for the better part of a decade.

You don't hear anything about that. The "drive-by" made enough noise about GM and Crysler that a bunch of people went out and bought Toyotas and they now regret it.$38,000 for something that isn't any better than the $22,000 Silverado.

Of course he would, and he shows why he's been the piece of shit he always has been. Maybe after that Hurricane took the Liberals out of the picture the Repub's up there will literally walk on water to vote and vote his vile ass out of there...hopefully he's up for re-election...I'm not sure abotu that State as I do not follow it because of the dismal failure it's been and the fact it has been overran by the liberal cancer up there.

Maybe that Hurrican just chnaged all that, but I'm sure much of the filth remains. The place is a liberal cesspool, and has been for years...it's why they have a Subway under water right now! The damn system is over 105 years old and thanks to the liberals it have never been replaced with a modern system that would've been back up and running by now...the subway system has become the new sewer system up there quite literally and even the Military and all it's might that is brings is not exactly sure they'll be able to fix it even when they get all the water out.

You New Yorkers remember that. You are living proof of what happens when you get mixed up with liberal shit...you get flushed, and the filth that is floating around you? The raw sewage, and the bodies floating around where gravesites didn;t meet standards of decency? Yeah those bodies. It'ds because that is what you voted for, and elections have consequences...unfortunately for you you got mixed up with the liberal cancer and the consequences have been dire. It won;t be weeks or months before that cesspool reovers...it will be years or decades because until they wipe out those liberal bastards, and start actually taking action up there to rebuild correctly and not take the half measures they are taking now they will just get more of what they have been getting.
