"Obama, stressing tax fairness, said richer taxpayers can afford to pay more taxes, especially at a time of annual deficits topping $1 trillion."

Tell us Mr. President, what difference will the additional $70 billion in new taxes make to your consecutive trillion dollar deficits?

--Obama visited his African siblings before going to law school and again on an African junket as a state senator. He wrote about them extensively in his memoir, explaining how important the visit was to his personal growth. But he hasn't bothered to maintain a relationship. Obama tells us he was inspired by his absent father's ideals to help fix the world. But help his own actual, living relatives? Not so much.

They asked for help.

Obama encouraged the group -- which included his own uncle -- to form self-help organizations and apply for funding through official channels, such as USAID.

In the words of an African blogger:

President Obama has ignored his African family line. President Obama doesn't help any of his relatives in Kenya. This poor grandmother of 90 years still lives in absolute poverty in a small village in Kenya and she gets no help at all from Obama. Obama's half-brother George Obama still lives in the slums in Kenya and gets no help at all from his elder brother Barack Obama the president of the richest country on earth which is very sad. The American presidency can never buy you a new family line so if you ignore your family line just because of your position then you are not being a good person at all. I used to like Obama a lot. I still like him but not that much why because Obama ignores his poor African relatives.

Obama's brother George lives in 6x9 wooden shack in a Nairobi shanty town. Obama has met him. George Obama is shamed by Barack's behavior -- his lack of charity towards family members is unthinkable by African standards.

"If anyone says something about my surname, I say we are not related. I am ashamed. No-one knows who I am. I live here on less than a dollar a month."

Same ol' lyin' horsecrap from the reTHUGlicans, who pretend that 'the rich' = 'small business.' Of course, that's just more propaganda from the Party of Lies. Most rich people are NOT small businessmen.

Uh, dumbass, NONE of those news and commentary sources is "right-wing."

1. "Soros" is not a media site.

2. Media Matters, Daily Kos, and MSNBC could be termed 'liberal' or 'progressive.'

3. ABC, NBC, CBS, and CNN are all corporate mainstream sources.

ROTFLMAO!

Media Fail: Government Motors Inflates Sales by Selling to...the Government

By Seton Motley | July 10, 2012 | 10:44

The Jurassic Press was in full-throated ObamaChorus mode in reporting on General Motors (GM)’s allegedly strong June sales.

Very few failed to receive the sheet music.
General Motors June US Car Sales Rocket 16%&#8206;
GM's June sales up 16%, show broad-based growth
GM June U.S. Sales Up 16%&#8206;

Mentioned was that We the Taxpayers were conscripted to bailout GM to the tune of $50 billion.

General Motors' US sales up 16% in June&#8206;
General Motors (GM) Shifts Gears on Strong US and China Sales
GM June Sales Up 16%

The Jurassic Press mentioned the bailout so as to allow President Barack Obama to continue to campaign for reelection on its titanically-failed “success."

GM speed(s) to strong June
GM (NYSE:GM) Announces Record Strong Sales
General Motors' US sales up 16 pct in June
Not mentioned was the auto bailout will lose us about $30 billion.
General Motors (NYSE:GM) Cheers to Reports US Sales Surges 16%
General Motors (NYSE:GM) Beats Analysts Sales Forecasts
GM Sees Highest Sales Since September

Almost all of this $30 billion Taxpayer loss was in fact a gi-normous payoff of the Obama-Democrat stalwart United Autoworkers Union.
GM Races Higher on Sales Report

GM Sales Rise 16%
GM June US Sales Rose 16%

While the Union was thoroughly bailed out, We the Taxpayers are still stuck holding 500+ million shares of GM stock. Which we need to sell at $53 per. Which debuted post-bankruptcy at $33 per. And which is currently trading at just over $20 per. Meaning we’ll lose about $15 billion. How’s that for “success?”
GM Calls June Highest Sales Month Since 2008
General Motors (GM) June Sales Highest Since September 2008

GM June 2012 Sales Climb 15.5 Percent to Highest Month Since September 2008

And in all this Hosanna-reporting, nowhere to be found is the inconvenient truth that these huge June sales were mostly fueled by...government purchases.
We now learn that government purchases of GM vehicles rose a whopping 79% in June.

Meaning Barack Obama is now campaigning on the “success” of - the government buying cars from...the government’s car company. With our money.

That’s like you setting up a lemonade stand for your kids. You buy them the lemons, sugar, cups and pitchers - and then buy most of the lemonade yourself.
