Thanks to the great patriotic American successful Governor Rich Perry who stands up to the dictator in chief Obama who tries his best to ruin America on a daily basis and build new world order of the Mozlem Brother communists on the ruins of capitalistic America. Governor Perry is standing for the American people to prevent the bankruptcy of America by the liar Obama who claimed in 1991 that he was born in Kenya to Mozlem Brother communist Kenyan father that he keeps living his memories that seek the destruction of America by all means of deceit.

The proven ‘destroyer of America’ on a daily plan Barack Hussein Obama is using lie after lie after lie with the support of his liberal State Media of the NY Times, Washington Post and Associated Obama Express to brainwash the low class and voluntarily unemployed Americans about more ‘presents’ that Obama is giving to his traditional voters. The fraudulent liar in chief Obama plan to steal more money from the empty coffers and print more money by Bernanke only to buy votes of the illegal Immigrants, Union bosses and Union members, voluntarily unemployed, voluntarily “disabled”, voluntarily ‘poor’ that do not pay taxes anyway to the Federal and enjoy tax credit checks while voluntarily stopped working. Obama is selling himself as the Messiah who borrows money from China to buy votes with lies about tax breaks to those who do not pay taxes anyway only to brainwash them and present himself as the feeder and financier of the liberals while pushing America to bankruptcy that the Obama owned media will never tell the American people. Obama proved to be the most deceitful president in US history who uses the corrupt liberal anti-American media to push America off the cliff with empty promises to the parasites of America that will vote for their fake foreign agenda Mozlem Brother Messiah Obama who let them live on the back of the hard working middle class Americans.

Fair enough, but the SOB had better push for tax INCREASES on the upper bracket this time. Push it as 'deficit reduction'(which it is, of course) to sell it to nutball Righties, and you might get it through Congress!

Or at least damage Congressional ReTHUGS so badly they lose both Houses...:)

Um, no, the tax code "taxes some people higher than others," as it has for DECADES.

Apparently inbreeding has taken its toll on you...:)

Obama care about the working middle class.
Romney and the Republicans hate the working middle class and want to tax them more. Romney and the Republicans took away the millions of working middle class unemployment benefits leaving them to starve and lose their homes. Republicans though continue to live off tax payer money and tax payers even pay their health insurance for the dead beat Republicans.

Add to that the fact that a Romney donor at a Koch Beach Bash fundraiser said, "I don't think the common person is getting it ... My college kid, the baby sitters, the nails ladies -- everybody who's got the right to vote -- they don't understand what's going on. I just think if you're lower income -- one, you're not as educated, two, they don't understand how it works, they don't understand how the systems work, they don't understand the impact."
WOW!
I'm sure that you can provide a source for this nonsense, right?

JUST REMEMBER ALL

big business is what gives you people jobs and if they dont make money we dont and we dont get any raises or and more help.

IF my place of work didnt make money i wouldnt get paid. and if you want them to give and create more jobs i would think first

Stop blaming others for you fall or fails in life im not rich but i got out of high school got a job worked my way up and happy been at the same place for 25 years didnt bounce from job to job were im at but if you people keep bitching and for the so call middle and poor class they way people are giving out thing and being lazy and not wanting to work there will be nothing left and the poor will be pretty much dead and the middle class will take there place

If Obama wanted to extend a middle class tax cut he would repeal the Obamacare Taxcare plan.

Hey, dummy. These are part of the Bush tax cuts. Y'know the ones you and nobammy blasted when he was running? You really don't get it do you? Nobammy's only successes are with Bush's policies that he ran against. LMAO

Man, I've heard more coherent things from a schizophrenic with Tourette's

Rick Perry has taken his state to the top exporting and private sector job state in the US. Your republican governor visits him quite often for advice, so you may want to talk to your own man first, screwball. It's scary to think that people like you are allowed to vote and breed.

All the unemployed and under employed remember the Republicans took away your unemployment benefits leaving you without any support so do the same in November leave the Republicans without any support.
