Hussein Obama is responsible for the unprecedented rise in umemployment and deficit.

He and his liberals are wasting billions dollars every month on illegal Mexicans and illegal muslims at the expense of American citizens.

Never in the history of the country, has there been so much hatred for the liberals.

Their malignity toward the military and the White race is without precedent.

That's the story the left and the media push.

Believe me, I'm not a big Bush fan, but the truth is that the economy under Bush wasn't NEARLY like it was (or is) portrayed.

Under Bush records were set for new job growth
that will probably never be broken.

Unemployment was "only" 5 1/2%.

He brought in record money to the Treasury.

He brought the deficit down to $167 billion.

Compare that to "Obama And The Democrats."

(Sounds like a Motown group, doesn't it...except that I think a Motown group would be more economically intelligent.)

We need just to REBALANCE this country. Don't vote for a SINGLE democrat in 2010 from your local commissioners to the governor to your congressional and senatorial reps.

THIS is to REBALANCE OUR government! It's not to give dominance it's to adjust the scales.

The democrats control the House (Pelosi..we must get rid of her as Speaker)

The democrats control the Senate (oust Reid..vote out democrats)

And Obama has the Executive branch PLUS LIFETIME JUDICIAL nominees until 2012.

WE MUST REbalance. NO ONE PARTY rule in the USA.

Republicans have controlled the White House for 28 out of the last 40 years.
Republicans already control the Supreme Court.
Republicans already control about 30 governors' mansions.
Republicans already control most corporate board rooms and banks.
Republicans already control all the country clubs.
If Republicans also take over the House and the Senate this November, as they did from 1994 - 2007, how does this result in FAIR AND BALANCED, TWO PARTY rule in the United States?
I agree -- NO ONE PARTY RULE in our country. Vote for the Democrats this fall, and avoid another Great Depression. We do not need more Herbert Hoover policies.
And the thought of John Boehner as Speaker of the House of Representatives makes me sick. The guy can't tell the truth any time he opens his mouth.

The democrats -- Clinton and his administration (including Frank, Dodd, and Fannie and Freddie) are responsible for creating the too big to fail banks, for failure to regulate Hedge Funds,and for failure to regulate derivatives. In addition, the housing policies pushed by his adminstration under HUD Secretary Andrew Cuomo are responsible for expanding subprime loans.(while Bush tried 13 times to stop it).

Clinton signed the Gramm Leach Bliley Act and the Commodity Modernization Act (CRA). Poor public policies in the 1990s (the CRA for example) combined with those deregulation bills, and a period of very low interest rates earlier in the decade (after the Nasdaq bubble broke in 1990 and ushered in a recession) all fueled a housing bubble, and the asset securitization of the mortgages, and extreme leverage using unregulated derivative products of various sorts all contributed to the crisis.

Source: St. Louis Fed/FRED, Hoven's Index for June 30, 2010
http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2010/06/g...

Changes in number of jobs:

• In last six months (Nov. 2009 to May 2010):+873,000

• In Bush's eight years (Jan. 2001 to Jan. 2009):+1,080,000

• In Obama's 17 months:-2,979,000

• When Republicans controlled House and Senate, Jan. 95 to Jan. 2001:+16,107,000

• When Congress/Senate were split, Jan. 01 to Jan. 03:-2,203,000

• When Republicans controlled House and Senate, Jan. 03 to Jan. 07:+6,801,000

• When Democrats controlled House and Senate, Jan. 07 to present (May):-6,497,000

• Since December 2007 (peak):-7,381,000

The marxist subversive-in-chief has already cost us nearly 3 million jobs, and 6.5 million jobs have been lost since the democRATS took control of both houses of congress in January, 2007. And if you take government jobs (and census jobs) out of the equation.....the number of jobs lost by Reich Chancellor Obama and his National Socialist Democratic Party is MUCH, MUCH higher.

It is clearly and without arguement, career politian's of all party's fault.

The career clowns have had their chance for the past 10 20 30 40 years and have failed miserably at their jobs. The condition of the country proves this.

The only thing these career clowns have done successfully is to further their Royalty Caste system.

Vote out ALL House & Senate members with over 2 terms in office. They have screwed over America long enough.

Longeivity in office doesn't mean more experience in decision making.....it means more personal power.

Can you say "40 years of failed liberal policies"?

The Last Refuge of a Liberal -- By Charles Krauthammer, Friday, August 27, 2010
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/...

"Liberalism under siege is an ugly sight indeed. Just yesterday it was all hope and change and returning power to the people. But the people have proved so disappointing. Their recalcitrance has, in only 19 months, turned the predicted 40-year liberal ascendancy (James Carville) into a full retreat. Ah, the people, the little people, the small-town people, the "bitter" people, as Barack Obama in an unguarded moment once memorably called them, clinging "to guns or religion or" -- this part is less remembered -- "antipathy toward people who aren't like them."

That's a polite way of saying: clinging to bigotry. And promiscuous charges of bigotry are precisely how our current rulers and their vast media auxiliary react to an obstreperous citizenry that insists on incorrect thinking.

-- Resistance to the vast expansion of government power, intrusiveness and debt, as represented by the Tea Party movement? Why, racist resentment toward a black president.

-- Disgust and alarm with the federal government's unwillingness to curb illegal immigration, as crystallized in the Arizona law? Nativism.

-- Opposition to the most radical redefinition of marriage in human history, as expressed in Proposition 8 in California? Homophobia.

-- Opposition to a 15-story Islamic center and mosque near Ground Zero? Islamophobia.

Now we know why the country has become "ungovernable," last year's excuse for the Democrats' failure of governance: Who can possibly govern a nation of racist, nativist, homophobic Islamophobes?

Note what connects these issues. In every one, liberals have lost the argument in the court of public opinion. Majorities -- often lopsided majorities -- oppose President Obama's social-democratic agenda (e.g., the stimulus, Obamacare), support the Arizona law, oppose gay marriage and reject a mosque near Ground Zero.

What's a liberal to do? Pull out the bigotry charge, the trump that preempts debate and gives no credit to the seriousness and substance of the contrary argument. The most venerable of these trumps is, of course, the race card. When the Tea Party arose, a spontaneous, leaderless and perfectly natural (and traditionally American) reaction to the vast expansion of government intrinsic to the president's proudly proclaimed transformational agenda, the liberal commentariat cast it as a mob of angry white yahoos disguising their antipathy to a black president by cleverly speaking in economic terms.

...

It is a measure of the corruption of liberal thought and the collapse of its self-confidence that, finding itself so widely repudiated, it resorts reflexively to the cheapest race-baiting (in a colorful variety of forms). Indeed, how can one reason with a nation of pitchfork-wielding mobs brimming with "antipathy toward people who aren't like them" -- blacks, Hispanics, gays and Muslims -- a nation that is, as Michelle Obama once put it succinctly, "just downright mean"?

The Democrats are going to get beaten badly in November. Not just because the economy is ailing. And not just because Obama over-read his mandate in governing too far left. But because a comeuppance is due the arrogant elites whose undisguised contempt for the great unwashed prevents them from conceding a modicum of serious thought to those who dare oppose them."

President Barrak Hussein Obama is NOT responsible for National Unemployment. I lay that wreath fully in front of Pres. Clinton and that 'Gigantic Sucking sound' known as NAFTA. What was a good plan turns out to not be so good for us...the other kids didn't play fair. Bearing the wreath to the funeral is the Unions. What once was a great and policy changing movement turned into a spokesman for the auto worker who hurt his back and is now off "on Medical" for 8yrs via Vicodin and Darvocet while milking the company because he/she was drunk/high when they went to work and hurt themselves anyway.

NO, America! The demise of this Country rests squarely upon OUR OWN shoulders. Bought that living room furniture on credit to put in your 4 bed. home that is mortgaged to the hilt, while you decry credit lending tactics...Geez, you would think Capital One was the Mafia!!

Suck it up, Pay your bills, don't borrow, and eff Obama-Vote this November. Vote for a gov't that doesn't spend millions of dollars to legistlate how much salt you intake. Vote for a gov't that doesn't tax and spend small businesses out of the gate.

VOTE!

At no point in our Nation's History has our Gov't been limited to a two Party system. Why don't we vote in the person who best represents out sentiments? Just a thought.

It all comes down to: Are you better off now than 4 years ago when Strickland took office? Referring to Strickland as a moderate former congressman is funny. Bottom line- unemployment remains above 10% in the state, the economy shows no signs of rebounding soon, corruption in his administration runs rampant, the school funding fix never occured as he promised 4 years ago, and what is his answer to all this? Blame Kasich for his ties to Wall Street. Less than 2 months until election time...

Lame-Duck Democrats Plan to Cripple U.S. Economy After Mid-Term Elections?-- 8/1/2010
http://www.redstate.com/laborunionreport/2010...

On Thursday, we reported on the proposed $165 billion-plus union pension bailout bill. This union bailout bill has significant long-term ramifications for both the U.S. economy, as well as the Democrats in Washington.

Fortunately for taxpayers, unless some Republican “squishes” stupidly sign on to Sen. Bob Casey’s (D-PA) union bailout bill, it is not likely to get too far before the mid-term elections.

After the mid-terms, however, is a whole different matter, as it appears Democrats are preparing to cram their entire economy-killing agenda down American’s throats using a “lame-duck” session.
__________

As Phil Kerpen writes over at Big Government (see link below):

"The lame duck session looks increasingly likely—and increasingly ambitious. Sen. Kerry continues to stress that cap-and-trade will be on the agenda, and Sen. Harry Reid (who may be a lame duck himself after Election Day) confirmed it to the Netroots Nation audience, saying:“We’re going to have to have a lame-duck session, so we’re not giving up.”

Along with cap-and-trade, a lame duck will likely consider the recommendations of Obama’s deficit commission — a package that will include enormous tax hikes and could draw the support of some departing Republicans like Judd Gregg of New Hampshire George Voinovich of Ohio, and Robert Bennett of Utah.

And organized labor, seeing the lame duck as their last chance for a legislative return on their political investments for years, will also demand lame duck action.

While Sen. Tom Harkin is still promising some version of card check, more likely is Sen. Bob Casey’s proposed union pension bailout, S. 3157, which would relieve unions of their pension obligations – with a potential price tag for taxpayers in the hundreds of billions. Democratic Whip Dick Durbin signed on as a co-sponsor yesterday, indicating this bill is a top priority.

The winners in Delaware, Illinois, and West Virginia [each having special elections] could be the vital deciding votes on these major policy issues."
__________

It will take enormous pressure from the American people in order to stop Democrats dead in their lame duck tracks and the August recess is the time to start.

In addition to defeating Democrats in the special elections in DE, IL and WV, as well as during the mid-term elections, Americans should should call Democrats out on their plans and demand in writing during the August town hall meetings that Democrats (and Republicans) not attempt to kill the already-flagging U.S. economy with a destructive agenda during a lame duck session.

Beyond this...

Remember in November.

Four States Can Stop Lame Duck Threat -- by Phil Kerpen
http://biggovernment.com/pkerpen/2010/07/31/f...

"Illinois Governor Pat Quinn made it official: Illinois will have a special Senate election just for the lame duck session. Thus Illinois joins Delaware and West Virginia (both having special elections) as the three states whose winners on election day will—barring a disputed election result—be seated for a lame duck session in December. A fourth, Colorado, is less clear but may also be in play..."
