It took Obama 3 years to come up with a jobs plan, but he spent his lifetime building up his agenda of marxism for destroying the american dream and econonmy.

She can pretend to tout jobs for veterans all she wants,as a wife of a veteran I can tell you this administration could care less about our veterans except when it's beneficial to their agenda. I don't know about anyone else but that's how I see it. You watch Obama among the military men when he appears with them, He has nowhere near the rapore with them that past Presidents have had cause they can tell that too.

Dems have a weak and sad history when it comes to the military.....they vote against the military budget items, they gut the military every chance they get, and they despise the military brass....too bad too, the military is the only thing the US govt runs properly, and thats because the brass run the military, once they get congress to give them the budget they need. We need a strong military man to run for pres. Military men are experienced, they've made it to the top after long years of leading men, discipline and hard work, in competition with other military men in their careers. Politicians usually just buy their jobs, and have no discipline, no experience leading men, and are usually crooked.

The Obamas are using veterans as cannon fodder to advance the failing re-election campaign. Shameful. But then again these two are beyond shame.

Fat-assed Mrs. Obama is in campaign mode for her islamofascist African warlord husband, Hussein.

We all know that the Obamas loathe the military.

Last year Hussein wanted military personnel to obtain their own health and life insurance.
He said they volunteered for service, they were not compelled to enter the military.

He also wanted recruits to pay for their basic training, uniforms, and related supplies.

Hussein instructed military commanders to refrain from any sort of Christmas decorations during Christmas time.

'CHRISTMAS' cards have been outlawed for the military.
'Holiday' card are to replace CHRISTMAS cards.

Happy Halloween
MERRY CHRISTMAS

The Obama's need to keep their sorry asses away from US Vets. We served and fought to ensure we remained the strongest country in the world and in a short 3 years they have just about destroyed over 200 years of sacrifice.

Cost to Taxpayers for Michelle Obama’s Family Trip to Africa
Charges for the Aircraft and Crew Alone Amount to $424,142
http://www.judicialwatch.org/news/2011/oct/ju...

Washington, DC -- October 4, 2011
Judicial Watch, the organization that investigates and fights government corruption, announced today that it has obtained mission expense records and passenger manifests from the United States Air Force related to the June 21-27, 2011, trip taken by First Lady Michelle Obama, her family and her staff to South Africa and Botswana. Judicial Watch obtained the documents pursuant to an August 19, 2011, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Air Force (No. 11-1496)). Judicial Watch is investigating the purpose and itinerary of the trip as well as a breakdown of the costs to taxpayers.

On June 28, 2011, Judicial Watch filed a FOIA request seeking the mission taskings, transportation records, and passenger manifests for Michelle Obama’s Africa trip. Documents were only provided after Judicial Watch filed suit:
_______

• According to U.S. Department of Defense’s published hourly rates for the C-32A aircraft used for the trip, Judicial Watch calculated the total cost to American taxpayers was $424,142 for use of the aircraft (34.8 flight hours x $12,188 per hour).(The C-32 is a specially configured military version of the Boeing 757.) Other expenses - meals (off the plane), transportation, security, various services, etc.- have yet to be disclosed.

• The passenger manifests confirm the presence of Obama’s daughter’s, Malia and Sasha on the trip. The two girls are listed as “Senior Staff.” The manifests also list Mrs. Obama’s mother, Marian Robinson, and niece and nephew, Leslie and Avery Robinson, as well Mrs. Obama’s makeup and hairstylist (Carl Ray and Johnny Wright).

• The expense records also show $928.44 was spent for “bulk food” purchases on flight. Overall, during the trip, 192 meals were served for the 21 passengers on board.
_______

The professed purpose of Michelle Obama’s trip to South Africa and Botswana was to encourage young people living in the two growing democracies to become involved in national affairs; and during her scheduled stops in Pretoria and Cape Town, South Africa and in Gaborone, the capital of Botswana, the First Lady used the opportunity to speak on education, health and wellness issues.

The trip also included such tourist events as visits to historical landmarks and museums, plus a nonworking chance to send time with Nelson Mandela, a meeting that Mrs. Obama described as “surreal.” The trip ended with a private family safari at a South African game reserve before the group returned to Washington on June 27.

“This trip was as much an opportunity for the Obama family to go on a safari as it was a trip to conduct government business,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.“This junket wasted tax dollars and the resources of our overextended military. No wonder we had to sue to pry loose this information.”

Wonder why there was a photo op of Michelle Obama shopping at Target?

It's because the paperwork and costs for a taxpayer funded vacation for Michelle, her mother, her daughters, her niece and nephew, her hairdresser, her makeup artist are now availabe to the public.

Taxpayer$ funded this trip of over a half million dollar$ exclusive of the cost to protect all them by the Secret Service.

And let's not forget her personal trip to Spain which we paid for too.

Read it and weep. DETAILS:
http://www.judicialwatch.org/news/2011/oct/ju ...

When was the last time she went on vacation to Africa, Spain BEFORE she became First Lady?

It's just is disgusting. Telling us to cutback and she can't control the spending for her personal vacations. The public does realize how 'government cheats' by arranging a 'speech' or a 'visit' that the taxpayer starts picking up the costs for these 'official' vacations.

Nearly 80 PERCENT of the stimulus funds allocated for wind power has gone to foreign manufacturers of wind turbines!

Stimulating Green Jobs For China - February 11, 2010

According to the Investigative Reporting Workshop at American University, nearly $2 billion in money from the American Recovery and Investment Act has been spent on wind power. The goal was to further energy independence while creating American jobs. It has done neither.

Of the money spent, according to the report, nearly 80% has gone to foreign manufacturers of wind turbines.

Stimulus Money Spent Overseas - February 9, 2010
http://www.wsbtv.com/news/22508703/detail.htm...

The President set aside millions of stimulus dollars for green initiatives as part of last year's American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Since then, the government has handed out $1.7 billion dollars into the wind power industry. But, the big news is where the money is going. America's new "green rush" has turned into a 21st century "gold rush" for other countries.

"Foreign companies are looking at the U.S. and are seeing a really great opportunity," said Russ Choma of America University. His investigation, along with a U.S. Senate report found more than a billion dollars going to foreign-owned energy companies. It's because they dominate the field of manufacturing the turbines and other equipment for windmill farms."

The Spanish-based company Iberdrola has gotten $443 million in stimulus funds so far. The Portugal-based company E.D.P. has gotten $229 million. The British-based company Terra Firma is getting $42 million. It bought the Highland Wind Farm in western Pennsylvania from an American company just days before the stimulus awards were announced last year.

It's obvious Obama is trying to expatriate wealth OUT of the US to weaken the country.
