<quoted text> hey microbrain! How about we subsidize the farms and forget about , oh say, gm? Seeing how we feed a large portion of the world and we don't give them all colbalts. But you're right about farm subsidies. They go to other countries as well. Gm built a plant in china with bailout money and they're bankrupt. Again. Besides obama is president and last I checked he's not going to end farm subsidies. It wasn't a big issue this year and I never really heard liberals bitch about it until now. I mean roosevelt was president before you were born. You should have figured out by now you don't like democrat ideals...
Hey teabag nutcase. Try tghis....

The Libertarian Party advocates the elimination of all business and farm subsidies, protective tariffs, and price supports, which benefit business interests at the expense of consumers and taxpayers.

What obama wants to do is simple, take us over the "fiscal cliff"! What he wants to do is drive America into a depression so that he can issue executive orders to solve the problem he created! This is how dictators work. It's the way Hitler and Stalin both took control of thire sheeple!
Here's another confirmation that he wants to go voer the fiscal cliff. I mean the man does not care how much he destroys America, IMHO.

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/white-hous...
"President Barack Obama's budget office is preparing for the possibility that "fiscal cliff" talks will fail, triggering painful automatic cuts to domestic and defense programs that he and his Republican foes officially want to avoid. White House press secretary Jay Carney described the planning as an abundance of caution, not pessimism about the seemingly stalled negotiations.

The White House's Office of Management and Budget this week "issued a request to federal agencies" for information needed to finalize calculations on the spending cuts required under what is technically known as "sequestration," Carney told reporters at his daily briefing. OMB is "acting responsibly," he added.

"The administration remains focused on reaching agreement, as we've been discussing, on a balanced deficit-reduction plan that avoids sequestration" he said. "This action should not be read … as a change in the administration's commitment to reach an agreement and avoid sequestration."Leaders of both parties have pledged to work together in the coming weeks, and we are confident, as I just said, that we can reach an agreement. However, with less than one month left before a potential sequestration order would have to be issued, the Office of Management and Budget must take certain steps to ensure the administration is ready to issue such an order should Congress fail to act."

Carney's comments came as talks on the fiscal cliff—a series of tax hikes and government spending cuts that could plunge the economy into a new recession—seemed to be making no headway. Obama and congressional Republicans have each put a proposal on the table but do not appear to be actively involved in negotiating a compromise. The president and Republican House Speaker John Boehner spoke by telephone, a House Republican aide said. They spoke "this afternoon—no other information," the aide said.

"If our offer is not acceptable to the president, then he has an obligation to show leadership by presenting a credible plan of his own that can pass both houses of Congress," Boehner said earlier. He accused Obama of snubbing spending cuts he accepted in the past (notably in failed 2011 negotiations) and failing to lay out "serious spending cuts."

"This is preventing us from reaching an agreement," Boehner continued. "With the American economy on the brink of the fiscal cliff, we don't have time for the president to continue shifting the goal posts. We need to solve this problem."
You are right that is how DICTATORS WORK.

Didn't they already do that? I mean I bet we will find out that he was the most vacationed, golf playing, and generally off the clock of the recent presidents. Truly how much has he done for all Americans instead of his special interest groups?

<quoted text>Since you brought it up, why don't you tell us the cost? Also, don't forget to tell all the taxpayers how much those subsidies cost. Tell us all Exxon Mobile's profit last year, Archer Midlands Daniel, and don't forget Cargill. And this is only three.
The prices on both would rise one and a half times at least. Now let me ask you a question, Believe I have before, How much is too much? After all I haven't seen a derrick in the Gulf or off the coast of California, with "Mykro Oil Company on the side?

<quoted text> you're so wrong! Romney did not run against obama in 2008, the year in which obama received more campaign contibutions from wall street than any other candidate in history. More than romney in 2012. 40 some million dollars I think it was compared to romneys 18 some million. Remember when obama gave that speech where he said he "understands" why people are angry with wall street? He "gets it". Looks like he did because with the opinion people have of wall street, they would be better off putting their money on who they would like to lose.
In order to win, Obama had to play the same money game as his opponents. Why does that surprise you?

No pun intended but a pun anyways.

That would be the smearing I was referring to. I don't know if all of that was truth or half truth. I don't trust the "end justifies the means" crowd with their political assassination agendas. Clinton also had a woman problem, if you recall. Didn't seem to matter them even though he lied to a grand jury.
I agree, but as you can see that is how Obama conducts his campaigns. Nothing is on his straight record because as we all can see his true record is poor plus he assassinates others charactersas a matter of fact, IMO.
http://thehill.com/video/campaign/263749-cain... -

"Former GOP presidential contender Herman Cain accused President Obama on Wednesday of carrying out a campaign of "character assassination" against GOP nominee Mitt Romney.

"It is clear that President Obama can't run on his economic record, can't run on his foreign-policy record. This Benghazi cover-up is all over most of the news, so he is doing the basic character assassination," said Cain, a Romney supporter, on "Fox and Friends."

Cain, the former CEO of Godfather's Pizza, blamed the "liberal media" for using accusations of racial discrimination to slander Obama's critics.

"Now they're getting into name-calling. Now, he [Obama] may not do it directly, but the surrogate liberal media, they're doing the name calling … playing the race card. I saw a clip that Chris Matthews did, where he said that people who were criticizing President Obama shows outright hated of President Obama," Cain said.

Speaking after Monday night's third and final presidential debate, MSNBC host Matthews claimed that Romney's support among conservatives was spurred by "racial hatred."
"I think they hate Obama. They want him out of the White House more than they want to destroy al Qaeda. Their No. 1 enemy in the world right now, on the right, is their hatred, hatred for Obama. And we can go into that about the white working class in the South and looking at these numbers we're getting the last couple days about racial hatred in many cases … this isn't about being a better president; they want to get rid of this president," said Matthews.

Cain said the remarks by Matthews showed "desperation" and were an "insult to the intelligence of the American people."

"Anything to distract from the real record is all that the administration and his surrogates are doing at this point," Cain said."
