It's starting to look like a concerted effort by this White House to destroy our economy and join Europe as socialist losers. Why? I don't know.

Vote in NOvember.

NO to ALL democrats.

Reclaim the Senate.

Keep the House.

And vote Mitt Romney for President.

He IS the balanced candidate.

GET GOVERNMENT OUT OF YOUR LIFE.

When government, with supposed 'good intent', enters an arena-a good example is Public Education or even the War on Poverty- it goes INSANE with OVER-REGULATION, layers of ADMINISTRATION (people)and INCREASED COSTS and unintended consquences with no way to resolve them (generations of people on Welfare).

The Federal Government is TOO FAR AWAY from each citizen's life to regulate it well.

Your time has come to make THE decision in NOvember. Man-up!

i'm starting to believe that too...at first i thought it was just obama's ineptness...but, now i think you're right, he's doing this on purpose...and, my guess is (because obama ISN'T smart enough to do this on his own) george soros is pulling the strings...

i KNOW soros wants the u.s. to fail...he has for years.

That is not going to happen so just get used to the idea, I used to hold hope that fiscal conservatism would win out but I can't see that happening, we are fighting for the independents and more of the women's vote to do that but as long as the TurboChristians hijack the tea party types you can forget the Republicanism doing anything. A good example was Rand Paul's blocking a senate vote on Disaster funding until the senate has a vote on his personhood bill in his efforts to ban abortions. That sort of thing turns people off .

I have had this in the back of my mind since I read "Dreams from My Father."It is the only autobiography that I've ever read that dispassionately outlined a series of events without providing details that others would consider integral to the formation of character and values. I continue to turn the phrase "Manchurian Candidate" over in my mind. I think we've been had.

The Truth-O-Meter Says: Obama Flip Flopped

Obama On whether the federal debt limit should be raised
Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Interview with George Stephanopoulos
Obama now regrets 2006 vote against raising the debt limit!

"America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better. I therefore intend to oppose the effort to increase America’s debt limit."

-- Sen. Barack Obama, March 16, 2006

Now as President HE is the one begging for an Increase!

Full Flop!
