And how about that Obama finally getting tough on border control. Ok, so we're talking about Canada and keeping corporations and wealthy Americans from crossing the border out of here. But at least its a start.
Meanwhile, Golf outings: 192. Fundraisers: 394. Vacation days: 126. I understand that Obama deserves his vacations even during times of crisis like we are going through now. However, it sure seems like this guy spends as little time as is humanly possible actually being President.
Governing is a distant second to being a celebrity. The United States is in grave danger right now all, yet within 36 hours after coming back from his vacation in Martha’s Vineyard, he left Washington again to go to several fundraisers.
In the same breath that he claims that we don’t have a strategy for ISIS terrorists, he’ll then claim that he has to go have dinner with George Clooney at $32,000 a plate.
Is Clooney going to help him come up with this strategy?
Is Eva Longoria his new secretary of state?
Where does Kerry Washington fit in his cabinet?
In six years, has Obama ever spent more than 48 straight hours governing? Does he ever work three straight days? Are we sure he’s not French?
Republican run House in 2014": 113 days on their schedule.

Speaking of the Junior Varsity, some might disdainfully call the JV, what about that White House team? Lead by a distant relative of Custer (You couldn't keep the colonel away from those buffalo on a frigid Dakota night, hence little Barry), Barry shows the same astuteness as the colonel did at LBH all those years ago. NONE!
The White House is jammed packed with JV wannabes who couldn't make the traveling team they are so inept. If this guy wasting our money is the best and brightest of the Black community, we need to consider deporting them.

Why midterm elections matter to you
As usual for midterm elections, expectations are that most voters will tune out the candidates and stay home on Election Day, just nine weeks away. But that would be a bad idea. For at least these five reasons, voters should be paying attention during the post-Labor Day sprint to Nov. 4:
You'll pay dearly for not voting. Politics are brutal to those who don't vote. At the federal level, the low participation of young voters has produced a government that, not coincidentally, borrows heavily and spends excessively on benefit programs for retirees.

Just another reason to cheer for our great President Obama!!!!!!!!!!
Right Power!!!!!!!!!
in a growing trend, Tennessee looks like it will be the next Republican-led state to move toward expanding Medicaid under Obamacare.
The Tennessean reported that Gov. Bill Haslam (R) said Thursday that Tennessee would aim to submit a Medicaid expansion plan to the Department of Health and Human Services "some time this fall." The program would cover more than 150,000 low-income residents in the state.
Like 24 other states, almost all of them with statehouses controlled by Republicans, Tennessee declined to expand Medicaid in the initial rollout of Obamacare last year, leaving tens of thousands of people uninsured. Since then two of those states have changed course and embraced Medicaid expansion, and another three states have expressed an interest in doing so. Tennessee now joins the latter group.
Tennessee and HHS have had some informal negotiations, including meetings between Haslam and then-HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, over the last few years. Haslam said on Thursday that he recently spoke by phone with Sebelius's successor, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, and that he hoped to set up a meeting with Burwell soon, according to The Tennessean.
Haslam has floated a "private option" plan, using Medicaid dollars to pay for private coverage, as has been done in Arkansas and Iowa. Other pieces of the Tennessee plan could include co-payments and incentives for healthy behavior, based on the governor's past public comments.
Such a modified Medicaid expansion would require approval from HHS. The agency has already shown willingness to accept alternative plans and approved Thursday a proposal from Pennsylvania with some similar features.
Only a Republican would cheer government money being siphoned off by private businesses instead of spending less running it through Medicaid.

Yep, another corporate welfare program for corporate America.

The White House defended the President’s eating habits, noting that his predecessor, George W.

This is the wrong time in American History to have a ‘JV President’ at the Helm, he’s weak, vacillating, ill-advised, culturally insecure, strategically illiterate, tactically incompetent President in the White House!! Obama has surrounded himself with a bunch of incompetent Idiots and is highlighted by his ‘No Strategy remarks!!

Probably some socialist country.

When people stay home from the polls strange candidates can win important seats. Candidates such as 23 year old home schooled Jennifer Sullivan who lives at home with mom and siblings.
Work experience is a little weak, helped out on a couple of campaigns and helps mom run the North Lake Tea Party. www.voteforjennifer.com

She says that she believes strongly in term limits__we'll see.

New York Set to Accuse Evans Bank of Redlining

The suit offers a detailed look at the uneasy state of lending in the United States. In the heady days before the 2008 financial crisis, as Wall Street’s mortgage machine hummed, the nation’s largest banks made loans in black and Hispanic neighborhoods, although often at steep rates. Since then, though, the authorities nationwide have grown concerned that the pendulum has swung too far in the opposite direction, creating a patchy credit drought as banks refuse to lend in those same minority communities where credit once flowed.

That unequal access to credit, the authorities say, threatens to exacerbate the country’s yawning wealth gap. Part of the problem is that the foreclosure crisis disproportionately affected black and Hispanic communities, wiping out billions of dollars of housing wealth, federal mortgage data shows.

Mortgage lending is critical, the authorities say, to bolster homeownership — a cornerstone of upward mobility — in minority communities still trying to dig out from the recession. Denied access to credit, state and federal authorities warn, minority communities are helpless to address problems like boarded-up homes, foreclosures and blight that have long ravaged neighborhoods.

Pointing to the damage wrought, in part, by such problems, the City of Providence, R.I., sued Santander Bank in May, accusing it of systematically refusing to lend in predominantly minority neighborhoods. From 2009 to 2012, the lawsuit said, new mortgages in Providence’s white neighborhoods proliferated while those in minority neighborhoods plummeted by 63 percent a year from the number of new mortgages made in 2006 and 2007.

“It’s a civil rights issue,” said John P. Relman, the lead lawyer in the suit against Santander.

No one is older or whiter than Joe Biden. Over the weekend he said "It's time to take our country back"--he no doubt hates himself and the O'bama.

Well Sonic look at the unemployment rate of blacks under the"O'bama is a racist regime": in most areas black unemployment was over 50%--now how are they going to afford a loan?
