      In 2008, the Obama team launched the hype, like ads for a block buster movie, and even an undeserved Nobel Prize, saying that Obama was the best thing since sliced bread ... even though he had NO track record, or experience which would warrant the hype. Then, over a span of 3 1/2 years, Obama proved that he could come nowhere near the exaggerated hype. And, even today Obama continues to B.S. us. He even accuses his opponents of selling snake oil, when in reality, that's all he's been selling us all .... all along. Unfortunately, some of the gullible fools, who bought into his hype ... cannot let go of the illusion ... just like kids who refuse to accept the reality that Santa Claus is a myth.

    at "bb". He is at the whitehouse you dork. Unlike congress who is off for the summer. Where are all the job bills they were supposed to pass.

    Oh, yeah Paul Ryan was busy trying to defeat healthcare 33 times and doing his P90X workout sessions at the whitehouse. Good use of tax payers money.

      I cherish our constitution ... as I swore to uphold and defend it, when I served in America's military.
      Even though Obama NEVER served, he too swore to uphold and defend our constitution, only to break
      that oath on numerous occasions. Obama's knowledge of our constitution is only used as a tool to work
      around , and violate our constitution. Obama also ignores our seperation of powers, and demeans the intent
      of our founding fathers ... as well as all the American traditions our brave patriots have fought and died for,
      over the past 236 years !!! Unfortunately, Obama dishonors our right to free speech, because you use this right to lie.

    THIS IS LONG..........BUT PLEASE READ IT ALL.............Romney did NOT PAY full taxes on the money he "EARNED". That is the CENTER of the issue. THIS IS HOW ROMNEY MADE MONEY WITH BAIN:........first MILLION for Mitt came directly FROM HIS POP.......SECOND:......thru BAIN..........Mitt got OTHER PEOPLES MONEY, and bought distressed companies. There he sold off profitable pieces of the business, BORROWED TO THE MAX ON THE REMAINDER......THEN........MITT GAVE HIMSELF AND BAIN buddies......MASSIVE BONUSES DERIVED FROM THESE MONEY SOURCES OUTLINED ABOVE. ...Third:.......Mitt then declared these companies ...BANKRUPT...and layed off the employees, discared all retirement promises since the company was declared bankrupt, and then sold anything left as scrap. The result was that Mitt and his Bain buddies saw MASSIVE INCOMES FROM EVERY BANKRUPTED COMPANY........and this is the KICKER..................here it comes.........listen up............Mitt did NOT PAY THE NORMAL TAX RATE ON HIS SQUEEZED COMPANY MONEY........MITT PAID .....THE 15% CAPTIAL GAINS RATE. Now. This Cap Gains Rate was a REWARD TO PEOPLE THAT (NOW LISTEN)........RISKED...THEIR ..OWN..MONEY. At NO TIME did Mitt risk his own money..................and THIS IS HOW MITT MADE A HALF A BILLION BUCKS, AND LEFT DESTRUCTION AND LAYOFFS in his wake, AND, Mitt didnt even pay the normal taxes on his ill gotten monies. THIS IS A SCAM, A MONETARY SMOKE AND MIRRORS, THAT ROMNEY NEVER WANTS YOU TO REALIZE.
