    What you don't know about Obama!

    When he grades himself, it is not A or B, it's "Incomplete"
    When he votes, it's not "for" or " against", it's "present"
    When he leads, it's not "ahead of the pack", it's "from behind"
    When he loses reelection, it's not by sliver, it's by landslide!!

      After weeks of back room deals to get Hillary elected in 2016 ... tonight, I watched the master snake oil salesman, Bill Clinton, sell ice boxes to a room full of liberal Eskimos. Sure the economy was bad when Obama took over in 2008, but Obama, not Bush, squandered 5 1/2 TRILLION of our hard earned dollars in just 3 1/2 years ... and, it was Obama, not Bush, who kept unemployment at over 8% for 42 straight months. Thanks to Obama, our current enconomy is NOW in shambles ... and, Obama wants to double down on his failed policies ... at OUR expense.
      Save America ... Dump Obama ... and Elect Romney & Ryan in November !!!

      BOB WOODWARD'S NEW BOOK reveals how Obama's arrogance sabotaged our economic progress, early in his Presidency. The book describes how even top Democrats, who had come to a bi-partisan economic agreement, were betrayed by Obama. It's time to replace the incompetent egomaniac with two leaders who know what they are doing ... Romney/Ryan in November !!!

    • Howard

      Once again, Obama made a speech full of soaring rhetoric ... platitudes ... and empty promises ... while, after 4 years, and an economy which is much worse than when he took office, Americans are wondering what happened to his last list of broken promises. This President is an empty suit. America needs REAL leadership ... not more inspiring sermons.
      Save America ... Elect Romney & Ryan in November.

      Hollywood lives in the world of 'MAKE BELIEVE' ... and, so does Obama. Hollywood is infatuated with Obama, an actor, who is able to make people believe things which are not real. That's why we are in a financial meltdown, of 16 TRILLION dollars in debt, with over 8.3% unemployment, for over 43 continuous months. Obama, with the main stream media's help, TALKED Americans into believing his fairy tales and pipe dreams, which has resulted in a near depression. Now, we need REAL leaders, like Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, to restore REAL wealth ...and, REAL jobs for America.

      When Michelle spent TWENTY YEARS along side Barack, in Jeremiah Wright's 'God Damn America', anti-American, racist church, they swore allegiance to the church's 'Black Values' pledge, in which they promised to give preference in all matters to Black Americans, ahead of all other races. Therefore, when you say the first lady represents 'everyone' ... I'm sure that's the image her public relations people, and her speech writers want us all to believe.

    Surprise!
    The national debt topped $16 trillion yesterday, just as the Democrats and their media lackies were kicking off their national convention

    Four years ago, Obama criticized Bush for taking “out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children", by adding $4 trillion to our national debt. Now, President Obama has added another $5.4 trillion – more than Bush added in eight years.

    But instead of working in a bipartisan way to fulfill his promise, Obama, the president went on a 'stimulus'-fueld spending binge, The debt is a drain on our economy and a crushing burden on our kids and grandkids. America is clearly NOT better off now that four years ago. And it's not just our generation that's paying the price The next generation is continuing to be saddled with enormous debt because of Obama's continued incompetence.

Great speakers. First lady was right on and fabulous. lots of kids and diversity in the crowd. Brought out a lot of good points that repos won't answer. If the guy running for office hides his money off shore to avoid paying taxes then what does that say about his commitment to this country and our tax code??? No answers from repos on this one.

      As usual, bb, you don't bother to say what those lies are that those news sources said they were. I looked, couldn't find any. But, let's talk about the "Lead From Behind" dopey remark. And, I will give you a source and it comes from a guy that is an independent voice. Tom Friedman, a contributing columnist for the NYTs ( yes, they have all polictical persuasions covered) addressed that very same subject today. And, I quote what he said in his article but, you should read it in full. Tom Friedman goes on to say:
      In this increasingly interdependent world, YOUR RIVALS can threaten you AS MUCH BY COLLASPING as by rising. And, YOUR ALLIES COLLAPSE CAN HURT YOU as much as your enemies.
      The 2008 GLOBAL ECONOMIC CRISES was an example of an 'UNHEALTHY' interdependency THAT since the end of WWII THE WORLD has become. NOT JUST INTERCONNECTED but MORE INTERDEPENDENT. And this requires American leadership to ADJUST to this STRUCTURAL REALITY, because 'little Greece' pulling out of the Euro-zone can trigger a global meltdown OR, Israel attacking Iran , OR China's growth slowing to a crawl can throw U.S. Markets into a spin. IT WON"T MATTER WHO IS PRESIDENT – we will feel the pain.
      Republicans critize Obama for "leading from behind" – But, if you're NOT LEADING BY EXAMPLE in an interdependant world – leading from the front or behind no one will follow you. FIRST, Get our own house in order to gain the leverage in terms of MORAL AUTHORITY that comes from LEADING BY EXAMPLE. IF we saved more, consumed less, studied harder and got our own BANKS to behave LESS RECKLESSLY.
      Friedman doesn't believe Romney believes what even Romney is saying on Foreign Policy BECAUSE it is to gin up votes: there's some CHINA BASHING to gin up support in the Midwest, Some ARAB BASHING to win over the Jews, Some RUSSIA BASHING ( who he says is our #1 geopolitical foe??) to bring the POLISH VOTE and a dash of testosterone to keep the Neo-cons off his back.
      Example given: Romney declares "If I'm president of the U.S. ON DAY ! I will declare China a currency manipulator, allowing me to put more tariffs on products where they are stealing American jobs unfairly."
      Friedman asks: What happens on DAY 2 when China, the biggest foreign buyer of U.S Debt Securities, announces that it will not partilcipate in the next Treasury auction, sending our interest rates soaring?? DAY 3 will look like "George Bush aboard – the CARTOON VERSION.
      ADDING that we need to create a HEALTHY interdependency with other nations so we RISE TOGETHER, rather than FALLING TOGETHER.

      (I personally think this is a way to end war and environmental catastrophe as well)

        U have a couple of valid points, if u look at abc site and usa site read thier fact checks u will realize they were spewing lies, as far as the euro zone u can thank willie bill NOT bush for the nafta act, within 2 mos of that literaly 100 of thousands of jobs were lost (please check it out). willie bill open the free trade. as far as blaming bush I BLAME BUSH for doing nothing but twidling his thumbs, but he did not kill the economy the nafta act did. Willie bill Clinton also shoved down the senates throat new underwriting laws and lender laws that he forced fannie , freddie and country to take sub prime auto and mtg loans and aig to insure them. (thats why they got bailed out) as far as leading from behind Face it Oblunder is in over his head. He has no leadership in the business world yes America is a business, I am not a Romney fan but face it he is a whole lot better at business than mr point and blame, u seem somewhat smart so oviously u can see this

        bb you are missing the point. We have to make the adjustments NOW. We are faced with a repeat of the crises in 2008 by not making adjustments to policy made in the past on BOTH sides. We see where some policies have worked from BOTH sides. And, we see where there NEEDS to be a re-directing of other policies when we approach it from a place that sees that we are in the same position everybody else is whether they win or fail. We can't close our eyes to the change that has been happening and is happening. I prefer to think it can be better for all, but we have to take responsiblity for our own policies going forward. Learning from past mistakes and not repeating them.

We have a mess domestically and abroad as well; russia, china, the middel east, and africa are mishandled while obama focuses on left wing domestic and overseas ideology...he is not leading and he certainly has no grasp of the world economic peril we all face. And for the record is is not that we belong to govt, it is "We the people" as individuals HAVE RIGHTS! King obumbler must go.

        You are ready to elect a guy who has employed just about all of the Bush team. We all KNOW what happened when Bush was running the country. Nobody on here asks Romney any hard questions and just believes because he is a business guy he has answers that even he isn't telling you what they might even be. Bush was a business guy, too. If you can believe he lead successfully then, I don't believe you have any grasp of economics whatsoever.
        The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009 KNOWN COMMONLY AS THE STIMULUS includes measures to modernize the nation's infastructure, enhance opportunities through job training and expanded eductional programs, preserving and improving affordable healthcare, providing tax relief to the middle-class and small buinesses in an unprecidented effort to jump start our economy, creating and saving millions of jobs.

        Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George Bush increased PUBLIC SECTOR JOBS to help employment rates to go higher. DON"T YOU THINK it is a little Hypocritical of Republicans to push for and CUT Public Sector Jobs under Obama and blame him for the higher employment that the Republicans have had a hand in creating?? I do.
        Why don't you pay more attention to what the Republicans ARE DOING RATHER THAN WHAT THEY ARE SAYING?

    The real list of Obama's accomplishments:

    Obama's department of justice Operated the Fast and Furious Gun Runner program that armed Mexican drug gangs with automatic weapons and resulted in deaths of 100's of civilians, Mexican and American, and the death of at least one US agent.

    The head of Obama's job council head sent 36,000 Jobs overseas during his tenure as the president of General Electric.

    Obama's green lighted government backed loans' to Solyndra, a green energy company that lost over 700 million US tax dollars while giving its managers millions in bonuses. Obama's administration blocked congressional investigation into the loss. The former managers and owners claimed the 5th during their congressional investigation.

    Obama did the same for Lightsquared.

    Obama increased our deficit over 40% in 2/12 years, the national debt will pass 16 trillion today.

    Obama used the customs department to harass Gibson Guitars for allegedly importing "exotic" wood. Gibson was forced to plead guilty even thought the wood was purchased before it was put on the forbidden list. In essence Gibson, whose owner supports conservative causes, was retroactively penalized for breaking a law that had not been put into effect yet.

    Obama mandated drilling moratoriums that forced offshore oil rigs to move to other countries, taking jobs and billions of dollars with them.

    Under Obama, food and gas prices are soaring while wages are stagnant.

    Obama announced "shovel ready jobs" a term nobody in the construction industry has heard of and in fact all were 1 or 2 years from being started.

    Obama's debt caused the downgrade of America's credit rating, the first time in American history that it had been downgraded.

    Obama gave us the first time in American history that over 42 MILLION Americans are living in poverty , 45 million are unemployed.

    During his tenure HIS Senate Never passed a budget.

    America drops to 5th place in global competitiveness during his first 4 years.

    Over 400,000 small businesses have closed every year under Obama

    Under Obama's rule our Debt has increased $4,247,000,000,000 in just 945 days, the fastest increase under any president ever.

    Obama has claimed 3 summer recoveries, none of which have occurred.

    Obama's administration sue individual States for enforcing Federal law and harassing law enforcement officers of those states for enforcing these same laws. Becomes the first president to file lawsuits against the States he swore an oath to protect.

    Enabled the largest number of home foreclosures in US history.

    More people are on food stamps in US history.

    Started another War without congressional approval.

    Obama appointed a tax cheat to be the secretary of the Treasury.

    Appoint over 34 un-elected Czars.

    Obama's attorney general Eric Holder pardons Mark Rich, a man indicted on charges of tax evasion and illegal trading with Iran.

    First President to Tell a Major Manufacturing Company (Boeing) n Which State They are allowed to Locate a Factory to force them to build in Union controlled states.

    First President to propose an Executive Order demanding companies disclose their Political Contributions when bidding on government contracts. Published the name of Republican contributors and the name and address of their children during the Occupy movement protests to instigate harassment of Republicans.

    Used charity groups such as the campaign for human development to support anti-American pro socialist/Marxist agendas by funneled money to groups such as ACORN, that promote open borders and worldwide healthcare, programs that are to paid for by the US taxpayer.

    First president to encourage racial discrimination and intimidation at polling places by a group of black panthers through the use of stonewalling by his attorney general Eric Holder.

    Supported the The Occupy Wall Street movement which illustrates best what President Barack Obama's America looks like. It is an America where the lawless, unaccomplished, ignorant and incompetent rule. It is an America where those who have sacrificed nothing pillage and destroy the lives of those who have sacrificed greatly.

    By pushing thru Obama care the federal government has the power to force you to buy private goods and services, what else will we be forced to buy in the future? The IRS is now going to be given the task of hunting down and penalizing millions of Americans that do not have any health insurance. In fact, the Obama administration has given the IRS 500 million extra dollars "outside the normal appropriations process" to help them enforce the provisions of Obama care that they are in charge of overseeing.

    Obama care imposes more than 20 new taxes on the American people. In an attempt to "control costs" and "promote efficiency", Obama care limits the treatment options that doctors and patients can consider. This is likely to result in a decrease in life expectancy in the United States.

    Obamacare is going to send health insurance premiums soaring. This is especially true for younger Americans. Many small businesses are going to be absolutely crushed by the provisions in Obamacare that require them to provide expensive health insurance coverage for their employees. This is going to make them even less competitive with companies in other countries where businesses are not required to provide healthcare for their workers. This is also going to make it even less attractive for businesses to hire new employees.

    The F 22 has not been used in a combat despite the initial introduction of this jet in 2005. The last of the 188 planes rolled off the assembly line in April of 2012. It has cost The United States more than $64 billion, more than double the initial expected cost.

    Now they have given another contract to Lockheed Martin to fix the mistakes of the 188 planes that have issues.

    The US spends more on its military than the next 19 biggest spending nations combined.

    This is where our nation needs to cut its spending.

What do they want. pray-tell?? TO BE RICHER!!!!!!!! Making their money back in a snap with Gov't money. It doesn't matter if the GOP claims to love God, it doesn't matter if the GOP claims it loves Israel, it doesn't matter that they say they're pro-life and then start wars all over the place that kill-kill-kill, THE GOP HAS LOST IT"S SOUL. THEY HAVE DAMNED THEMSELVES. SOLD OUT TO THE DEVILS SPAWN.

        The GOP ATTACKS WOMEN'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE. 75% of Americans polled support BIRTH CONTROL and WOMEN'S RIGHT TO CHOOSE – The GOP ATTACK'S WOMEN'S RIGHT TO FAIR PAY FOR EQUAL WORK.
        Did you see the Democratic Convention? Doesn't look like women want a Republcan to dismantle their rights to me. You all laughed at Ms. Fluke being called a slut, remember? Women were not even on the panel of the ALL MEN'S CLUB WHO WERE DECIDING THE ISSUES CONCERNING WOMEN"S BODIES, HEALTH SERVICES AND THE DIFINITION OF RAPE FOR THEM. They tried to block her from speaking.
        You all think Lilly Ledbetter doesn't have a right to ask for past compensation to her retirement after she learned that for 30 years she had been paid less than her male counterparts for the same work. She won't get her back pay or fair compensation to her retirement or Social Security benefits BECAUSE the Republican Congress blocked her case by saying she didn't bring it up sooner, A JOKE when the knowledge was kept from her until just after her retirement.

        The GOP IS TOAST. I don't care how much money you have raised – it has nothing to do with the support of the American peoples support of you OR your lying candidates and your brown-nosing to BIG CORPORATIONS.

      Frank, it makes you look foolish to be saying that the gov't added in 100% funded abortions during any part of the term. No truth to that. God is very much a part of most peoples lives. Now that you mention Israel-
      Israeli-American Haim Saban founder of the Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution said about Israel's relationship with the U.S. in his article today – I quote him here –
      Meaningful Action Or Empty Rhetoric? The Answer Is Clear: "I'll take another four years of Mr. Obama's steadfast support over Mr. Romney's sweet nothings. The facts back up the president's staunch support of Israel – facts that even $100 MILLION from a CASINO MAGNATE can't. Mr. Romney conveniently neglects to mention that Bush, diverted attention from Iran to Iraq, even helping to put a pro-Iranian leader in power in Baghdad.
      Mr. Romney has never explained how he would prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons while Obama not only has declared that all options are ON the table, but has directed the military to prepare options confronting Iran and postioned forces in the Persian Gulf to demonstrate his resolve. Ask any senior Isaeli official involved in Nat'l Security, and he will tell you that the strategic relationship between Israel and the United States has never been stronger than under President Obama."

      Kinda makes you look more deparate everyday, Frank. You probably didn't even watch the first night of the Dem. Convention and won't watch the next two. As most people know, you just shoot BILE from your I hate Obama File.

      I guess the Democrats have to vote for the DNC platform then they can see what it contains.

      Clinton agreed to talk for Obama because Sandra Fluke was there. You know how he likes his interns.

        Hi December. Correct that the ratings for the DNC are higher than the RNC. Of course, this does not establish why DNC had more viewers. It could potentially represent the vote in November. Or, it is also possible that Republicans are paying more attention to the competition. Another possibility is that Independents are looking for a reason to reelect the President. Difficult to say.

    oh will we ever get rid of the clintons. I remember the clinton years, full of controversy, lies, manipulations, evidence tampering, suicides, deaths, the first trade center bombing, the trashing of banking laws, and grid lock such as this country has never seen. Don't forget the stock market crash of 2000 and the begining of the mortgage crisis. The world trade center bombing of 1993 as clinton ignored data suggesting it would happen...and then all the events leading up to the bombing of 2001. Everyone knows the clintons can't stand obama and support him for their own political gain. We can see how desperate obama is to bring slick willie clinton in to stump for him...he knows he is finished...good riddance.

And then I remember the Bush years. with the 8 years of trickle-down madness, and the trade center leveled, Gramm, Leach, Bliley Act written by 3 Rethugliklans which deregulated Glass Steagall, 2 unfunded wars...one on the pretense of non-existent WMD, promises to get bin Laden not completed on his watch. 2008 when jobs were dissolving at the rate of 800,000 a month.

      Well Jean, I believe you are giving more credit to George Bush than he deserves. It is difficult to believe he alone controlled the economy. Who was in control of the banks when the banks began to fail? Barney Franks and the Democratically controlled Congress. Who was in control when jobs were being dropped at 800,000 each month? Pelosi and Reid in the Democratically controlled Congress. Look at the numbers and you will find the economy was growing until around 2006-2007 when the Democtrats took control of Congress. Who controls the money, the President or Congress?

      September 6, 2012 at 5:49 pm |
      • DEcember 2012

        I FIND IT HILARIOUS HOW MUCH POWER A CERTAIN SOMETHING HAS BE IT THE PRESIDENCY OR CONGRESS OR KRYPTONITE DEPENDING ON HOW GOOD YOU WANT TO PORTRAY YOUR SIDE AND HOW BADLY YOU WANT TO BLAME THE OTHER. THIS IS TRUE OF EITHER PARTY BUT IT HAS BECOME LOUDEST AND DUMBEST WHEN THE REPUBLITARDS DO IT OUT OF HATE FOR OBAMA. SO WHICH IS IT REALLY? IS THE GOVERNMENT IN CONTROL OR IS IT THE PRIVATE SECTOR? IS IT THE PRESIDENT OR IS IT CONGRESS? YOU CANNOT HAVE IT BOTH WAYS.

        OR YOU CAN BRING SANITY TO THE ARGUMENT AND SAY, ALL OF THE ABOVE. EVERYONE IS TO BLAME.

        Hi December. Believe it or not, I think we may be on the same page on this one. My comment was not to show hatred for the President. It was to dispute that the President, Republican or Democrat does not entirely control the economy. In fact, since Congress holds the money, they may have more control certainly over regulation. I just get a little tired of the arguments that George Bush is entirely at fault and no one else. George Bush has been made the scapegoat over all of our current problems.

        I think you will find that my comments have not been directed at President Obama personally, but directed towards his policies. Plus I find it somewhat shocking that we have come to a point when anyone who disagrees with the President is viewed as a hating racist. I think many of my friends would view me otherwise.

        YES, THE EXTREMISM ON BOTH SIDES HAS BECOME AS SUCH THAT THEY CAN NO LONGER RECOGNIZE HOW STUPID THEY ALL HAVE BECOME. THERE IS STILL HOPE BUT I THINK IT WILL TAKE A HAMMER TO DO IT, LEADING TO POSSIBLY FURTHER GRUDGES DOWN THE ROAD. ONCE THIS ELECTION IS OVER, I CAN ONLY HOPE THAT IS WHEN THE TRUE PROCESS OF REBUILDING BEGINS.

      Gramm, Leach, Bliley Act signed into law by President Bill Clinton on Nov 12, 1999.

      in 2008 the jobs loss WAS NOT 800,000 per month.

      Obama claims 4.5 mil jobs created, yet he fails to say that he also lost 5 mil jobs. Only a liberal could be so delusional.

        8 million lost, 4 million gained...and how many kids are entering the market and how many underemployed or part-timers...the truth is 23,000,000 in job trouble and a failing America.

        The Gramm, Leach, Bliley Act...was written and sponsored by three Rethugliklans. When The House and the Senate was majority GOP.
