Didn't you hear? Vera Baker was hired to hide Mitt Romney's tax returns. Neither Vera nor the tax returns have seen the light of day.

Does Obama EVER take responsibility for ANYTHING that he is in charge of?? It is just sickening how he NEVER accepts responsibility for all of the horrible crap that HE and Pelosi/Reid created! Does he not realize that he had full control of the House and Senate for TWO FULL YEARS!?! Shame on any U.S. citizen who votes for him again. Unfortunately, he cheating Dems will have illegals and dead people voting for Hussein. This country has gone to Hell (literally) in the past 4 years. No more excuses, Hussein!!!

In any case, if you want a better economy, stick with the guy who averted a worldwide depression, despite the best efforts of idiot-in-chief #43. However, if you want an economy that destroys the middle class while benefitting the top one percent, Mitt Romney's your man.

3. Your obsession with race speaks more about your mindset than those at whom you direct your bile.
4. Speaking for myself, the president's race has no bearing on my displeasure and disgust with the present administrations lies, murder and illegal actions. These reasons are more than enough to wish our dear leader is defeated in November.
5. Replace your race card, it's looking frayed and ineffective.
Just keep parroting he same old shit, Pappa. You are worse than wrong. You are deadly boring.

How did he avert a world wide depression??

We can now say that exhaustive studies and calculations have concluded and that without the Bush Tax Cuts, America would be in a depression.

Unemployment would be far greater – perhaps as high as 20%– without the business stimulating Bush Tax Cuts on the employment creating sector of our economy, known in Obama circles as the rich.

The methods used to calculate this stunning finding are the same methods the Obama Administration uses to calculate jobs created or saved.

(Hint......he extended them twice!!)

I DON'T TRUST RINO's that OVER PAY TAXES.

By Romney’s Own Standard, His Tax Returns Would Disqualify Him From The Presidency

By Aviva Shen on Sep 21, 2012 at 2:10 pm

Mitt Romney will disclose his 2011 tax on Friday, along with a summary going back 20 years. The campaign has published the following summary:

In 2011, the Romneys paid $1,935,708 in taxes on $13,696,951 in mostly investment income.

The Romneys’ effective tax rate for 2011 was 14.1%.

The Romneys donated $4,020,772 to charity in 2011, amounting to nearly 30% of their income.

The Romneys claimed a deduction for $2.25 million of those charitable contributions.

The Romneys’ generous charitable donations in 2011 would have significantly reduced their tax obligation for the year.

The Romneys thus limited their deduction of charitable contributions to conform to the Governor’s statement in August, based upon the January estimate of income, that he paid at least 13% in income taxes in each of the last 10 years.

Romney has previously defended his low tax rate — which, at 14.1% is significantly less than many middle class families pay — by saying he is simply being pragmatic in meeting his legal requirements:

I don’t pay more than are legally due and frankly if I had paid more than are legally due I don’t think I’d be qualified to become president. I’d think people would want me to follow the law and pay only what the tax code requires.

If Romney had taken all of the deductions available to him under the tax code, he would have paid closer to a 9 percent tax rate in 2011. In attempting to match up his tax rate with his prior statement, Romney is paying more in taxes — and by his very own standard — disqualifying himself from the presidency. It’s worth noting that under Romney’s tax plan, he would cut his own rates even further, and would have paid little to no taxes under Paul Ryan’s 2010 budget, which would have eliminated the capital gains tax.

OMG, OBAMA MUST GO

The Empty Chair ignored security warnings by Ambassador Stevens himself.

While Barack was partying with JZ and Beyonce under the 100 foot champagne bottle at their digs.......

Ambassador Stevens talked about being worried about what he called the never-ending security threats in Benghazi.

'We also reported that the AMBASSADOR SPECIFICALLY MENTIONED the rise in Islamic extremism, THE GROWING AL QUEDA PRESENCE IN LIBYA and SAID HE WAS ON AN AL QUEDA HIT LIST.
