You are right Sandi, Obama has committed several violations of the Constitution, but if you take the time to point out each one every time some lo info voter asks you would be here all day. Barack doesn't respect the Constitution, hates America, and proves it by his actions every day. It is O K, because he won't be President for ever, and there will never be another as unprepared, and inept to serve as this one. It will be interesting to see what History say about the 44th President in years to come.

DAY 7: Saving America
Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in the Affordable Care Act. They vote independent and are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama.

Yet, like many other Bay Area residents who pay for their own medical insurance, they were floored last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law.

Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola Valley, will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four.

"Welcome to the club," said Robert Laszewksi, a prominent health care consultant and president of Health Policy and Strategy Associates in Virginia.

Deficit when Obama took office - 10.8 trillion;
Deficit now? 16.76 trillion dumbass!
Guess that "all others combined" BS just got debunked real easy!
Moron!
Simple math got you confused?
Obama added over $5 trillion to the debt in just 4 YEARS! And it is STILL climbing!!!!!!
W added to the debt $3.3 trillion in 8 years. Likely will be half of Odumbo's debt added.
Clinton credited with highest tax revenue and thus lower debt but not a zero debt or "surplus" because we still had debt. So Odumbo beat him too!
Bush Sr.$1 trillion in debt.
Reagan $1.4 trillion in debt.
Jimmy Carter $253 billion in debt.
Ford $181 billion in debt.
Nixon $70 billion in debt.
Johnson $35 billion in debt.
Kennedy $11 billion in debt.
Eisenhower $16 billion in debt.
Truman $3 billion
FDR $196 billion in debt over 3 terms and WWII.
Hoover $5 billion in debt.
Coolidge $6 billion surplus and NO DEBT.
Harding $2 billion surplus no debt
Wilson $21 billion in debt due to WW I
all previous to this were no debt presidents.

Do I need to do the math, simpleton? Odumbo has ammassed more debt than ALL presidents combined before him!!!

It’s no big secret in the real world, the two Bushes and Reagan are, and remain, the biggest spenders in history

It was worse than that. Why during the first 30 seconds of Obama's first term he added over 5 Trillion in debt. Can you believe he was so stupid as to put the Iraq and Afghanistan wars on the books? Obama created more debt during his oath of office than had been created in the whole of civilization.
