"I vow to cut the debt in half, by the end of my first term".
~Obama on the campaign trail 2008

Instead of keeping this promise, the national debt under Obama saw the largest, fastest increase in the history of our nation.

"I intend to focus on reducing the debt in the first 6 months of my new term"
~Obama on the campaign trail 2012

Anybody stupid enough to believe that?

He promised the same thing in 2008. Look where he's taken us instead and he wants another stimulus before the end of this year. How many trillion will it take for him to payback his donors and support union jobs only?
Obama is the biggest liar in history.
He hates America and his mission is to destroy it completely.

BOSTON (CN)- Bain Capital had a third party bankrupt a Samsonite factory in France to duck more than $75 million in legally required training and relocation fees to the 200 worker who lost their jobs, a class action claims in Federal Court.

Bain and its associates walked away with $1.6 billion, while the laid-off workers got nothing, according to the complaint.

Lead plaintiff Murielle Abdallah sued Bain Capital LLC in Federal Court. She claims Bain's scheme was not revealed until 2011, after a criminal case against the hthird-party businessman in France.

Bain, founded by presidential candidate Mitt Romney, is the only defendant in the complaint. Neither Romney nor Samsonite are defendants.

We can't mitigate climate change, people still don't have electricity since Sandy. We must adapt to climate change; climate change mitigation is a hoax.

Government isn't the solution, government is the problem.

He didn't break up KB Toys.

What I'd like to know is why is the black population voting for Obama when todays unemployment numbers show blacks went from 13.4 to 14.3 in unemployment. What has Obama done for the black population? Nothing. What are the overall unemployment numbers going to look like after Obama gives all the illegals amnesty? It also suppresses wages.

Candidate Obama stated in 2008: "The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years, is to take out a CREDIT CARD from the bank of China IN THE NAME OF OUR CHILDREN, driving up our NATIONAL DEBT from $5 trillion for the first 42 presidents -#43 added $4 trillion by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion of debt that we are going to have to pay back; $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That's irresponsible. It's unpatriotic."

Watch him make this comment here: www.youtube.com/watch...

Did he cut the deficit in half? Not quite. Obama is the first President to have 4 consecutive TRILLION dollar deficits. Pledge broken.

AND NOW OBAMA SAYS HE'S FOCUSING ON THE DEBT AGAIN? And there is someone around who believes him?

The Obama administration also led us to believe that the stumulis was going to lower the unemployment rate to 5.4% by the end of 2012.
www.economy.com/mark-zandi/documents/The_Job_... (see chart on page 4)

It is not even close to 5.4%. It's currently at 7.9%, higher than when Obama became President.

AND, in a new TV ad and in campaign speeches, Obama is making a claim that he added 5.2 million new jobs.

But according to FactCheck.org , the total added during his time in office is ACTUALLY ABOUT 325,000.


AND Obama appeared on the David Letterman show 7 days after the Benghazi attack and stated: "We had a VIDEO that was released by somebody who lives here- sort of a shadowy character... This caused great offense in much of the Muslim world, but what also happened was extremists and terrorists used this as an excuse to attack a variety of our embassies, including the one- the consulate- in Libya."

But perhaps the most significant development from the hearings on Benghazi was testimony that there was NEVER ANY REASON to attribute the attack to a protest of an internet VIDEO.

AND now we know that the Obama administration was sent emails as soon as the Benghazi attack started. The emails declared that it was a terrorist attack.

AND according to the following link, Obama twisted Romney's economic record as governor of Massachusetts.

AND according to the following link, Obama has made false claims about Romney outsourcing jobs to China.

AND Obama stated in a speech in Ohio on 11/3/2012:

"I understand that Governor Romney has had a tough time here in Ohio because he was against saving the auto industry, and it's hard to run away from that position when you're on a video tape saying the words,'Let Detroit go bankrupt.'"

No, there is no video of Romney saying, "Let Detroit go bankrupt." If this video exists, surely it would be on YouTube, but if you search that site, you will find that it is not there.

The truth is that Romney wrote an op-ed to the New York Times on November 18 in 2008. In this op-ed, Romney stated, "The federal government should provide guarantees for post-bankruptcy financing and assure care buyers that they warranties are not at risk."

In other words, government can help out the auto industry in a structured bankruptcy.

Down with big government debt, we can sell assets and cut spending to balance the budget. Down with big government cronyism.

I support Romney, do you need a ride to the polls?
