Lets see...
Bush's grandfather Prescott Bush went into the oil business with the Bin Ladens and stayed with them AFTER 9/11...
Even sent a US plane to get the Bin Ladens out of harms way after 9/11.
Hmmmmm...Haliburton? Chaney? No bid contracts??? That's alot of money for Dick and Bush, huh?
Obama and Bush are nothing alike.
Listen, sheep...Take you Faux news propaganda and "fair and balanced" bullshit to the Hannity show. Maybe they'll entertain your madness.
Oh, so it's okay that Obama speculation investments are keeping oil prices high for all of us to deal with, must be Bush's fault. Goood Lord man. Cut the crap.

I can't speak for all of Obama's followers, but I don't recall ever hearing Obama say that "low wage earners are entitled" to what someone else worked for.
Actions speak louder than words, don't they?

The 250,000 income level WAS Odumbo's figure. He increased it to 400,000 after he visited a small business in PA and found out that 250,000 bracket would hobble most small business operators. Where have you been, lala land?

WHAT DID YOU THINK RE-DISTRIBUTION OF WEALTH WAS? Obama had no intention of taxing the top 1%, he is one.

Motor fuel taxes as currently enacted in many states have significant limitations.
Combined state and federal gas taxes in the United States average 40.4 cents per gallon. Knowledge center, council of state governments. You need to dig a little deeper than just skimming information off the top of the google search, pal.
We are talking Federal not state...Remember that bullshit lie about the federal gas tax going to 50 cents???? you fkn lied about??!?!? That's the issue, not the state gas tax, which can increase for a number of reasons when it comes to needing highways or bridges, moron...

Do you think you can spin and add other bullshit into the mix like Faux news to lie your way out of your own stupidity??!?!?

LOL! Trust me...You're still a fkn idiot.

There is really little point in trying to reason with folks like CBOW, or the other right wing whack jobs on here. They are not necessarily bad people, but they are extremely gullible. They have at most a high school education, or in some cases, maybe a little college, but they consider themeslves experts on complex topics like economics, constitutional law, history, etc.

And their basis for their "expertise" is listening to uneducated charlatans like Rush limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and others. You asked CBOW, "Did you watch any of the debates or campaining?" That's not the point. He probably did watch the debates, and probably saw Obama's campaign speeches. But he saw them through the right wing propaganda filter. So when Obama says, for example, "I think we need to keep our children safe", CBOW hears, "I'm gonna take all the guns away from honest, hard-working folks, because I'm just like Hitler." It's sad, really.

I happen to be a small business owner, manufacturer of robotic systems. I don't enjoy over taxation, I don't support union thuggery, I don't support SOCIALISM. It takes fr5om those that work hard to support those that don't. Why do the dems insist on paying women to breed like rats, why do dems support generational welfare, why do dems support tax increases on small business, and don't say they don't because they do indeed. I've been in business long enough, through enough changing of the guard to know it is a fact! I am small business, it's why I lean republican.

"You're insipid babbling about the 250000 dollar tax increase is nothing but right wing Glenn Beck lunacy, sheep. " IS THAT NOT YOUR QUOTE? Who is the bobblehead here?
