4 years of experience has shown me there is nothing to be learned by listening to Obama, he is a chronic liar, he's incapable of telling the truth. Fortunately for him he has the LSM in his pocket and tens of millions of Americans ar uneducated and stupid to boot.
Remember this? I do.

The fact that you're upset because someone states the obvious is irrelevant. Yes, Obama won the election and yes, we also have a Congress and Senate. I don't see your point. Because you complained about the Patriot Act, I am a partisan hack??? Explain the logic behind that statement. As far as being at the trough; if you're insinuating that I am a pig, well, you are entitled to an opinion. If, however, you are saying that you think I am suckling from the governmental teat, maybe you need to do a little more research.
It's all clicks and buzzes at my end. This seems more like a dialogue going on inside the partisan brain than any attempt to communicate to me but I will share one thing - a trough is where MANY animals eat the SAME source of food. It's called an analogy. There is an endless supply of partisans coming back with slop on their face responding to statements about Obama with "waaah, well what about Bush?" so when there is no satisfactory response to this I was just wondering what the - here is another analogy - what the buzz is at the hive for what you are supposed to say when someone does not defend Bush (although it's weird since Obama and democrats voted for the Patriot Act too). Apparently the agreed upon response is to just mutter and babble - claim some ignorance - and then click "post comment".

Too bad increasing taxes on the rich will just pay for 8 1/2 days of government spending. We are borrowing 46 cents on every dollar we spend! Ridiculous!!!!

Notice how liberals are the first to tell you to give over all your money to the government so they can redistribute it to the poor, but they are never willing to give give any of their money. I think if you are a true liberal and believe in your philosophy, then you should give until it hurts or until you are at the level of the poor you want to redistribute the money to like a monk. If Obama was a true leader, he would get up and say that he and the Democratic congressional leaders are going to pay their taxes to the levels that they are demanding of the rich. He will show his leadership by avoiding all tax loopholes that would allow him to pay any less than anybody else. In other words, since he is rich (as defined by him) he should pay his full 39% that he demands of others. As if that will ever happen.

So, you rely on the government which has tons of fraud and graft to redistribute your money? I used to work for the government and I can tell you that the government is an inefficient way to do it. As the joke goes, "There is bad work, horrible work, and then government work." California and LA are fine examples of inefficient work. BTW, as a true liberal I would think you would give away all your money to live by the barest means to fully support your liberal ideology and not demand other peoples money to do it like a typical socialist.

And you want to talk about who created our debt ... Google that yourself if you really care.
Quoting from a far left website, how typical for a liberal! But what alternet forgot was that Reagan (a compassionate conservative) was trying to help all American and not advocating for all the graft and fraud in that the "Obama Phone" seems to engender.

http://www.theatlanticwire.com/politics/2012/...

"And that brings us to why there have been abuses in the Lifeline program. People who don't qualify for the program have an incentive to lie and apply anyway, to get free stuff. But the companies also have an incentive to sign those people up -- because the government pays $10 per subscriber, and the companies get to charge for minutes beyond the amount Lifeline users get for free. TracFone customers who run out of SafeLink minutes, for example, can buy a 60-minute card for $20, or 33 cents a minute, which is expensive."
...
"Worse, subscribers have been able to sign up for more than one phone, even though only one per household is allowed. And that brings us to another thing complicating this political lesson. One of Lifeline's problems was the lack of centralization. In January of this year, Federal Communications Chairman Julius Genachowski proposed a central database to make it easier to check for double dippers. The FCC found about 270,000 duplicate subscriptions in 12 states alone in 2011. The FCC says its overhaul will save $200 million this year, and $2 billion over three years. It will address the problem pointed to by PacBell back in the 1980s -- there was no way for these companies to verify income -- by creating "eligibility databases from governmental data sources."


Woman hoards "30" Government Life line phones or Obama phones

"Not corrupt, but inefficient. Giving free cell-phones to people who absolutely need them would be a good idea, but if even some random ghetto skank plucked off the street can abuse this system and get thirty cell phones then the government needs to shape up and create a way to fix these loopholes. &#65279; But it's not just Obama, the way our government is structured makes it impossible for the government to do anything productive. Even Ben Franklin called the government "the great constipater."

2008.....6,000 phones distributed 2010 ..... 251,000 phones distributed FCC found out in 2010 that over a 250,000 people had multiple phones.

Reagan was for having "A" phone for the poor, not the rampant graft and fraud of the "Obama Phone" distribution program as another batch of liberal policies & implementation screws up a good conservative program.

"Five Myths About the So Called 'Republican War on Women'

Democrats can't run on their own record, so they are lobbing false claims against the GOP to win the female vote

By MARY KATE CARY
August 29, 2012

In the 2010 midterm elections, the gender gap disappeared for the first time since the Reagan era. More Republican women were elected to the House than ever before, and four out of six current female governors are Republicans. In 2010, Republicans won the women's vote over Democrats by 49 percent to 48 percent, exit polls showed. Ever since, the Democratic political strategy has been to make female voters, who comprise more than half the electorate, their No. 1 target. The stakes are high: Democrats can't afford to lose the women's vote again if they expect to keep the White House and the Senate. This fall, Republicans need to pick up only four seats to take control of the Senate.

The problem for Democrats is they can't run on their record: The poverty rate among women is now the highest it's been in nearly two decades; 5.2 million women are unemployed. According to the National Women's Law Center, of the 2.7 million jobs created since 2009, only 567,000 have gone to women.
...
Not so fast. Let's take a look at five myths the left is selling about Republicans and women. If Tim Pawlenty can call Obama's policies "all foam and no beer," we might say that the so-called war on women is all dressing and no salad.... Here's what they're saying:

If you are pro-life, you are anti-woman. The left's premise is that men like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan who are pro-life are anti-woman. But that doesn't account for the fact that more women are pro-life than pro-choice, according to Gallup. It makes no sense to claim that women who are Catholics, Christian evangelicals, Hispanic, or African-American, for example—many of whom consider themselves pro-life—are all opposed to women's rights. The left also doesn't take into account that the majority of Americans, from both genders, are pro-life. Gallup also reports that for the first time this year, 51 percent of Americans find abortion "morally wrong," with 38 percent finding it "morally acceptable." The number of Americans who identify themselves as "pro-choice" is at a record low, and a majority now call themselves "pro-life," with the biggest change coming among independents. Most Americans are pro-life, and I'd bet very few consider themselves "anti-woman."

Republicans believe that men should control women's bodies. "We shouldn't have a bunch of politicians, a majority of whom are men, making healthcare decisions on behalf of women," Obama said at his war-on-women press conference. Agreed. Yet under his Affordable Care Act, 15 unelected members of the Independent Payment Advisory Board will now decide which medical treatments will get federal funding, decisions that could affect millions of women. And don't forget that his individual mandate tells women which kind of health coverage they can buy. Contrast that with Ryan's Medicare premium support plan, which would give women a choice of Medicare or private insurance.

Republicans want to take contraception away from women. Nobody is arguing that women should be denied access to contraception. The question is whether it should be provided free, should be paid for by taxpayers, and should be mandated for religious employers who find it a violation of their beliefs. It wasn't Republicans who ordered this change; it was the president's administration. Since that decision, polls have shown that the majority of Americans disagree with his stance and believe there should be the sort of religious exemption there has been in the past."

The French are fleeing. A spate of proposed tax hikes is leading hundreds of wealthy French to consider leaving the country and putting their homes on the market, real-estate agents say. The result: the best opportunity in years for foreigners to buy a Parisian pied-à-terre or country château.
The number of high-end homes on the market has increased, with sales due to expatriations skyrocketing this year to several a week from a few a month, says Charles-Marie Jottras, president of leading luxury brokerage Daniel Féau. Fiscal expats account for more than half of the homes Daniel Féau lists between $6.4 million and $19.2 million, compared with about 10% in prior years.
Several high-profile businessmen have already packed their bags. Former L'Oréal Chief Executive Lindsay Owen-Jones has taken up residence in Lugano, Switzerland. Belgium now counts Amaury de Sèze, who served as chairman of supermarket giant Carrefour, as a local. Nicolas Chanut, founder of French investment advisory firm Exane, moved to London.

Nor will the liberals pony up and pay for it, but demand other people's money like the socialists that they are. I believe that ever celebrity that supported Obama and his taxing the rich scheme gave all the money that the celebrity could till he was living like the poor, then most celebrities would not be voting for Obama.
