Reasons to cheer For President Obama ...

e.“Obama wants to prevent the military from voting.” This has to do with the attempts by the Ohio GOP to impede voting by blocks that tend to case their ballots for the Democrats. A rule was adopted by which limits were placed on the ability of locals to vote, cutting into the time where there is the highest turnout of minority voters. However, an exception was made for members of the military. This was challenged by the Obama administration, not to stop members of the military from voting, but to allow everyone else to have the same rights. Rather than admitting they were trying to favor one block of voters over the other, the GOP turned reality on its head. And P.S.– the courts agree that Obama is right.

f. Obama is on a spending spree. Never happened. I could lecture on this for a while, but instead let’s turn to the words of that bastion of liberal thought, the Wall Street Journal through its Marketwatch site. A 2012 article entitled “Obama spending binge never happened,” reports that “federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s. Even hapless Herbert Hoover managed to increase spending more than Obama has.” But that doesn’t stop Romney from moaning that Obama has created a “debt and spending inferno.” Read the whole article – it points out that there was a huge growth in spending in Obama’s first year, but that was meaningless; 2009 was the year of the last budget of the Bush Administration.(For more on the debt lies, see the section below on economics)

g. The stimulus failed. This is not only a lie, it makes no sense. If any country spends $700 billion on infrastructure and other projects, employment will go up. Three million people got jobs from the stimulus; Wall Street firms say, without hesitation, that it worked. I’m not sure how anyone could think it wouldn’t. Some may disagree whether it was the right thing to do (although, for a variety of reasons I will explain below, it was) but to claim it failed is simply wishes replacing reality.

h. Obama raised taxes. Hard to address this, since it has no basis in reality. Obama proposed and signed the largest middle class income tax cut in history. Tax rates for the wealthy are the same. There’s nothing else that can be said about this lie.

i.“If we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.” This one deserves special recognition. Romney’s first major ad featured a clip of Obama making this statement. Sounds pretty devastating, right? Except this was a clip from the 2008 campaign, and Obama was quoting his Republican opponent. The full quote is:“Senator McCain’s campaign actually said, and I quote, if we keep talking about the economy, we’re going to lose.’’’ When this was pointed out to the Romney campaign, they not only dismissed the fact that they were lying, one of the aides said they were going to keep doing this kind of thing because Obama had to be held to account for the words he spoke – as if words and meaning were two different things.“You didn’t build that” is just a continuation of that cynical, un-American philosophy of Mitt Romney.

d.“You didn’t build that.” Stop and think for a moment – not based on partisan lunacy, but just on logic. Any presidential contender stands up and tells business people that they didn’t build their own businesses? It takes an enormous level of self-delusion and irrationality to believe that someone is that stupid. And, of course, the truth is that Obama said no such thing.
Rare off-teleprompter moment lets us see the real Obama:

" ... look, if you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something -- there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there."

"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen."

- Barack Obama. Roanoke, Virginia July 13th, 2012.

And no, it doesn't take an enormous level of self-delusion and irrationality to believe that someone is that stupid - only that they are an incompetent narcissist schooled by leftist class warriors and scripted by Chicago lefty class warrior hacks like Valerie Jarrett:

First President to cancel the National Day of Prayer and to say that America is no longer a Christian nation.

First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.

First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.

First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly spoke-out on the reasons for their rate increases.

First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-Corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.

First President to appoint 45 czars to replace elected officials in his office.

First President to surround himself with radical left wing anarchists.

First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office, 102 to date.

First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records.

First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.

First President to go on multiple global “apology tours” and concurrent “insult our friends” tours.

First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends paid for by the taxpayer.

First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.

First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000 a year at taxpayer expense.

First President to repeat the Holy Quran & tell us the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.

First President to tell the military men and women that they should pay for their own private insurance because they “volunteered to go to war and knew the consequences.”

Then he was the First President to tell the members of the military that THEY were UNPATRIOTIC for balking at the last suggestion.

First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs Arizona).

How is this hope and change working out for you? THERE'S AN ELECTION COMING UP...I HOPE YOU REMEMBER THIS LIST WHEN YOU VOTE!

Bozo rocks, if you like unemployment.

Another month where "jobs created" is below maintenance level.95,000 new jobs, but 400,000 dropped out completely. Net loss over 300,000 in just the last month. And that is before the predictable "readjustments", which are always worse.

Bozo sounded like a loser forcing a smile for the fanatic followers, knowing that he will soon be catching a flight to Argentina. Or Cuba.

A totally fraudulent presidency, following which will be the inevitable decline of the Dems.

Yes, it was a lovely party in the Titanic's Grand Ballroom last night - the Kool-Aid flowed freely and the Band played on. All the Beautiful People were there, and they looked MAHVELOUS.

But this morning - oy vey - what a handover as we wake up to the hard cold reality of our situation, as reflected in this morning's Jobs report:

- A record 88,921,000 Americans not in the Labor Force.
- 119,000 fewer employed in August than July.
- A net 368,000 people simply dropped out of the labor force last month and did not even look for a job, the highest amount in years.
- The labor force participation rate dropped to 63.5 percent, down from 63.7 percent in July - lowest since September 1981.
- The 69.9 per cent labor force participation rate for men is at lowest level recorded since the US government began tracking it in 1948.
- The economy added 96,000 jobs in August (worse than the 150,000 economists had expected), and the national unemployment rate dropped from 8.3% to 8.1%, but only because so many people gave up looking for work. If the participation rate had not dropped so precipitously, unemployment would have risen to 8.4 per cent.
- The unemployment rate would be 11.4 per cent if the labour force participation rate had remained what it was when Obama took office in January 2009.
- For every net new job in August, nearly 4 people stopped looking for work.
- Factory employment fell by the most in two years and temporary-help companies eliminated positions for the first time in five months.

There's a vacancy for US ambassador in Libya. Interested???

Seems that the last one was murdered by Muslim fanatics. The same people, in fact, that Bozo incited to kill Qaddafi.

Now, invading an embassy (not to mention killing the ambassador) is not a "diplomatic incident", it's an ACT OF WAR!!!!! Libya has the obligation to IMMEDIATELY catch and execute all those involved, or ship them to us for snuffing.

But what does Bozo do?? He says, "Naughty naughty. Libya is supposed to be a 'religion of peace' country."

Like I was saying, there's a vacancy for ambassador. Interested?

Today, the Obamapiers celebrate the one year anniversary of Obama's embrace of Class Warfare/Income Redistribution/Socail Unrest and Civic Suicide for America.

The Obama Campaign is hoping that as the stench of human waste from encampments becomes less and less tolerable in the Financial District it will motivate Voters to conclude that Obama is the Truth and the Light.

A state judge on Tuesday brought some temporary relief to the democratic process in Pennsylvania, ruling that voters there will be able to cast a ballot for president next month even if they lack an ID card. If the ruling holds up, it will mean the failure, for now, of a Republican effort to disenfranchise minority and low-income voters likely to support President Obama.
