Obama's job training program revealed – its all about his preparing for a career as the next David Letterman, trusty sidekick Biden will be the side kick – are you beleiving this – going on 4 onths with only 3 days of work in the WH, you got to be kidding!
Great job President Obama. Had congress passed his jobs bill we would have had 1 million new jobs.
Did you see the latest Robme gaffe. Another week and another blunder from Romney. He is so out of touch with the middle class. I am a 47% and I work and don't depend on government handouts.
Republicans left this country in a mess and two wars and they are now complaining that Obama did not clean up their mess fast enough.
Latinos for Obama 2012
If u r working, which i doubt than u r not part of the 47% Mitt was talking about. However if u rsucking up gov funds then like Mitt said u suck. How can any one with a right mind vote for Oblameo?? 47% of people are sucking the gov dry and this is ok ??? Christ talk about no moral compass
LOL! Well Robme wants to talk about the 47% who do not "according to him" pay any taxes while he himself has not proved to anyone that he has actually paid taxes. What does he have to say about those coorporations which he and Citizens United claim "are people" which for years on end have paid no taxes? From 2008-2010 these 30 companies paid No, Nada, Zip in federal taxes. Not only that, most of them take huge corporate entitlements from the federal government.

Many of which receive billions in revenue from everyday hardworking American citizens who work but do not have enough income to pay federal taxes. To say the 47% do not pay taxes flies in the face of reason...everyone pays taxes...If you own a car you pay taxes...if you ride the subway you pay taxes...if you own or rent a home you pay taxes...if you buy toilet paper or laundry soap you pay taxes... sales tax, excise tax, property tax, city tax, state school taxes.
Plus,it was not for our past and future tax dollars, our #SS trust fund, our reitrement saving funds, our military benefit funds that bailed these thankless greedy pigs out of the pickle they put us all in, a great many of them would not be in business.
I WOULD BET YOU THOSE 47% OF PEOPLE NOT PAYING INCOME TAX INCLUDE MANY REPUBLICANS, MOSTLY ELDERLY AND POOR WHO ARE PROBABLY STICKING TO THEIR GUNS AND RELIGION. JUST HOW CLUELESS IS MITT ROMNEY? AND WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT HIM WHO PAYS A MUCH LOWER RATE THAN MANY IN HIS BRACKET? SHOULD WE NOW SAY PEOPLE WHO DEPEND ON THESE TAX BREAKS FOR CAPITAL GAINS WILL VOTE FOR OBAMA? HOW IDIOTIC. WHY IS THIS MORON RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT WHEN HE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT HOW NEARLY HALF OF AMERICANS WILL VOTE?
I would suggest reading:"The Food Stamp Fallacy" When will Republicans be honest about who really gets the most out of welfare programs? Posted on THE ROOT by: Edward Wyckoff Willams Januray 10, 2012
Research has proven that in 2010 of the 46 million living living in poverty 31 million were Caucasian and 10 million were African American. Of the 49 million without health insurance 37 million were Caucasian and 8 million African American. Of the 36 million relying on food stamps, 24 million are caucasian, 8 million were African American and the remainder Hispanic.
The Food Stamp Fallacy only proves how the GOP has exploded the race issue to make people vote against their own best interest.
We actually at this moment have about 3.5 million job openings available that American workers lack the skills to do...and every day they are not trained to do these jobs ships more jobs overseas, brings more skilled labor in on visas...and exponentially with every new job opening that requires that, or another skill, for whch we do not have trained workers the problem grows.
Jean, my father, a small business owner, hired 4 employees last summer. They were trained. However, he could not get one of them to put in a single full week of work. How would you think we should deal with this problem? Farmers have made similar statements. They prefer immigrant workers for seasonal work because immigrants simply work harder.
Don't you mean if Republicans hadn't protect the nation from Obama's job destruction policies we'd have millions fewer jobs?
@Caramon I love your father....and you do know 3 out of 4 is something to brag about. Maybe #4 wasn't cut out for that particular job....not every size 7 shoe is a good fit for a size 7 foot.
@jean...companies pay taxes when they are profitable...and they do abide by the tax code...so, your point? Oh, and how much do yhou think these companies paid into the social security funds...their portion? How much did they pay into pensions, health insurance, local state and property taxes....inventory taxes and many many other taxes. And how much did they pay tax attorneys and accountants to deal with the federal govt and audit teams from uncle sugar? As usual you are harping the left wing false and manipulative hate America and commerce line. Dumb and shallow thinking.
Companies pay taxes when they absolutely can't find another loop-hole to write income off. The same as the average working person who pays taxes when they don't have a legitimate deduction. Unfortunately we have handed out far too many unrewarded tax loop-holes to corporations.
Plus any monies paid into any Government fund on behalf of an employee was not the corporations' money it was their employees earned pay. Do you not look at your pay stub to see what is being withheld by your employer to forward on as your contribution?
@ jean2009, Liberals do not understand capitalism. Companies are in biz for their shareholders. Not the government. In fact if they do not do everything legally possible to be good stewards of the capital then the fed and state governments can hold them accountable.
If a co. pays less in taxes then the value of the stock will be higher, because the extra cash on hand. This growth benefits the share holders, regardless if they are man or woman, black or white, rich or pore, young or old. It is equality to the max. If the share holders sell then they are responsible for the capital gains tax. I wish that Liberals could take the time to understand how our economic system worked before they lay criticism.
jean2009: If you put that much research into Obama and his works maybe we wouldn't be in these straights. Where do you get the time to produce all that? Your guy, Obama, seems to be on an identity (he's black, you know) politic jag: Beyonce, JayZ, NBA teams. It looks to the outsider that he is flagging in black polls or at least motivating nothing more than apathy there, in need of what he thinks they respond to pro athletes and entertainers. Maybe that's who he should be tapping for higher taxes; talk about unearned riches.
Exactly. They're so delusional and make up a different set of rules for themselves vs. everyone else that aren't wealthy fat cats.
Meanwhile..., 400,000 children in Obama's hown town go another day with their constitional rights for education..., seemingly un-noticed by Obama his state run media.
Valid point, more people suffering due to his lack of leadership
It would be wish to consider a child's teacher an educator not a babysitter.
I will education my fingers to type better on this smaller keyboard someday...wise not wish.
So sad for you. small mind.
Since he has so much free time, why doesn't he go back to the Middle East & 'BOW' again, lower this time as apparently they weren't that impressed with his first bow! Or, maybe he DOES think there is such a thing as a 'terrorist' & is wetting his britches & will send Hillary instead?!
What a waste of time. Ten hours of travel, three campaign events and 3 minutes of comedy on Letterman. Is this really the best use of our Presidents time? If a CEO of a company acted so foolishly their company would go bankrupt. I guess that explains it.
Romney spends with time with millionaire and billionaire donors making fun of the middle and working class.
Now there's someone who cares about all Americans.
Excuse me, but Obama is the one partying it up with the rich Holllywood stars and the rich music stars, etc. I'm sorry, but I do not want my President on David Letterman. And he wants people to think he is just an average everyday guy. Bull, he is a "hollywood" want to be. Once he's out of White House, maybe the Hollywood people will give him a job. That's the one thing he does have experience in. If he does get re-elected, not sure what he'll do for the next 4 years. There will be no more campaigning to do.
Did you happen to read the headline on this article?
If I remember that old out-of-touch actor who talks to chairs was socializing with Romney...heaven help us that someone that out of it is offering advise to a preidential candidate.
At least he is doing it on his own dime not the taxpayer's dime like Obama pendejo.
Come on, he has his priorities. It's tough being a celebrity..........no time for the piddly presidential stuff.........
You give AC/DC a bad name. "Back in Black" is one of my favourite.
Most of these fans are middle class folks who falls in Robme's 47%.
Check out the group "Rocking for Obama". Most rockers sing about social justice which unfortunately Robme and Lying Ryan does not understand.
What a joke, dont work on creating jobs , fly around and party at the taxpayers expense, What a turd in the whitehouse.
Our embassys are being over run and this POS is out partying??? I just dont see how any one with a half of brain could support the inept one, the point and blamer. Saw the Romney video, loved it boy talk about hitting the nail on the head.
Oblunder is backed by the leeches of mankind. I guess birds of a feather !!!
Robme and Ryan are the jokes in this presidential election.
Obama has done a great job considering how hard Republicans tried to block him.
Americans are not stupid, they have seen what has happened.
Pease don't talk about teaching anyone business skills until you can clean up how you refer to our President.
Typical, a busy day is one with celebrities but not one doing what he's supposed to do. Most of what this guy does is for the sake of image.
Are we a tad jealous?
Robme and Ryan has Adelson and Koch for their sugar daddy billionaires who are giving over 300 million to their campaigns.
Most Obama donors are private citizens giving less than $50.
have truly lost it or just stupid >>>, read the headline, Beyonce, jay-z Letterman, clooney, sarah jess Oblunder and thes people are the 1% christ, talk about hypocrites ???
Cheapies! I gave Romney $125.00. Oh, that's right, Obama's donors are all on welfare!
To all that have posted something negative...George Bush stayed at his ranch majority of his presidency and that's a fact, being that I am from Texas. President Obama is running for reelection...what do you expect him to do???? He has to campaign just like Romney. Get over yourselves, and stop these negative and hateful responses about the President of our United States. I am sure he is doing a much better job than you would do as president!
every freaking time u say something about oblunder it is either hateful or racist, how about its the truth
he is INEPT, so u go hang in texas, dont get all torn up by this if it bothers u go to different site,, remember freedom of speech
Why don't you go hang out on Fox News website...obviously that's where you belong!
bb...if polls are any indication, I would say Vulture-Voucher are the ones who are truly inept...and probably in for a very bumpy ride. Who in their right mind insults 47% of the population and expects those people's vote. We are a pluralistic society. The people going to the polls are not just that very wealthy1 or 2% minority who give every indication of planning on doing a crippling George W. do-over.
George Bush spent about 32 percent of his time on either ranch. Truth, it was the most vacation time for a president. However, our current president has crushed records for fund raising. Yes, he does need to campaign just like any incumbent president. He also needs to perform the duties of the presidency at the same time. I for one would just like to see some activities being performed as the President. Some will say he is doing these duties while on the campaign trail. Maybe so. It is just that it should be visible.
By stating that those who disagree with our current president should not comment on this news web indicates a certain biased. News in general should be unbiased. Denying the right to oppose even the President of the United States is exactly what the first amendment is to guard against. Do you agree or not?
As far as hateful responses, please find any one of my comments that would be considered hateful.
I am in no way saying you can't disagree with this President. I just feel that some posters on here are very disrespectful in how they disagree with him. I didn't agree with Bush policies, but I respected the fact that he was our President and addressed him as such. Instead of calling him inept and every other name in the book. I don't recall calling you out personally regarding the hate comments, but majority of them are, especially bb and that is who I was addressing to go back to Fox News.
Fair enough mdb.
...and you don't consider Citizens United a problem....LOL! I would rather know that real people are investing small amounts in a candidate's campaign rather than some behemoth entity represented by the major share holder/owner is buying a candidate outright.
Obama's progressively liberal spending is bankrupting America while Hollywood and the lamestream media sing Kumbaya...
For the first time in my life.., I am NOT proud to be an America.
Now you know how Michelle Obama felt for the first 45 yrs of her life!
You're NOT proud because we are no longer living in the 1900's? I bet you've NEVER been proud.
Professor Made Students Sign ‘Vote for Obama’ Pledge, look what oblunder has done , this is his education plan. We have a dead ambassador, he makes a campaign speech in front of his coffin, the private sector is fine, we have an embassy over run blames it on a movie, What a useless POS this turd is vote him out
You are stupid and have no brains left. The special interest must be paying you to play dumb idiot.
ohhhh ouch=not !!! dont wet your pants, settle down , oops go change your undies u didnt listen !!!
Obama fiddles (fund-raises) while the Middle East burns. Wake up America! This man is NOT a leader in any way, shape or form.
aaah the site with all the repo loonies. Your boy is busy shooting off his mouth again. Hope none of you are in the 47% . That means anyone on social security welfare medicare student loanes VA benifits. . If middle class starts at 200.000. a year where are most of us? This mittens clown shows distane for the people that vote for him. more red states have more of the poor and pay less in taxes. Most welfare recipents are white you know. You idiots are getting screwed and seem to like it. Forward. 2012
Hey Mitty is right, however this isnt about the wounded, or the eldery its about the leeches, the welfare moms, the fat and lazy, who work the system, But then again another sideshow to distract from the economy that Oblunder has no idea how to fix, all this jerk has done is follow the republicans speeches, ideas etc, Face it oblunder is out partying while the world is falling apart. I thought it was just real classy giving a campaign speech over the coffin of our Ambassador,,,,NOT ,
YOU SURE LIKE TO STICK TO GENERALIZING AND STEREOTYPING THAN ACTUAL FACTS. IF YOU LOOK AT THE TAX POLLING THE 47% NOT PAYING TAXES ARE LARGELY ELDERLY AND REPUBLICAN.
OF COURSE, REPUBLITARDS HAVE A HUGE DISDAIN FOR FACTS. I AM NOT SURPRISED.
Hi December. Where did you find this information? I looked. However, it only showed 47 percent due to tax credits and low income.
YEAH, I HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR THE GRAPH I SAW ON THE CABLE NETWORKS AND I DON'T SEE IT ONLINE YET. THERE IS ONE DETAILED BREAKDOWN ON THE 47% OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT PAY FEDERAL INCOME TAX IN THE WASHINGTON POST. IT SHOWS THAT MOST OF THEM ACTUALLY WORK BUT PAY ONLY A PAYROLL TAX, THE REST ARE EITHER ELDERLY OR EXEMPT DUE TO CERTAIN TAX BREAKS.
Interesting. I personally find the term payroll tax to be a bit confusing. It apparently includes retirement, aka social security or pension, and federal withholding tax. I would be curious to see how many pay withholding but receive the entire amount back as a refund. This would likely provide a better assessment of the number not paying taxes. My guess is we will not hear this from either candidate.
Actually Judy, what Romney said was that middle class starts at 200K or less. Apparently several news organizations removed the or less part of the statement.
CNN is part of the O-Media team. Honest journalism died here a long time ago..
You do realize that people with student loans are allowed to get paying jobs that will have taxable income.. right?
All the Repo loonies have no place to write their hateful comments because Faux News have blocked all comments.
You are stupid and have no brains left. Hateful comments like this?
I've told you before Lionel, you shouldn't snort Drano.
Well I am being held up yet again by the moderator. Happens all the type..nothing new.
To add to my comment (the one you are not yet reading)...here is a short fact.
In 2009 forty-nine corporations paid ZERO or less in Federal tax. Which means they not only did not pay any federal tax they may also have received a rebate Six of those 49 companies told their shareholders they earned $78.6 billion in pre-tax income and received $10.8 billion in tax rebates.
And they can't afford to help retrain workers whose out-dated jobs skills do not meet their needs...they cannot provide jobs in locations where unemployeed need jobs....PLEASE!
awaiting mod does suck, ifeel ya, however profit is not a dirty word, why should some one successful be responsable for a loser leech, i mean really ??? what gves??? heres an idea why doesnt the loser go find work, if he or she is unqualified, they can wait tables, resturant wk etc and take a few classes to improve themselves instead of getting gov handout. maybe even earn a self dignity . my taxes and insurance are thru the roof due to the ineptness of this joke pres, he has no idea what to do but point blame and party like a rock star. its just been one Blunder after another if u stay current, which it appears u do than u already know how inept he is.
Nice to know you are doing so well..that you have an income that can afford taxation, and can afford health insurance...you're obviously one of the blessed.
I assume you are unaware that many of those who receive government assistance are already employed in a low wage job, or are the disabled, or the elderly retired. As a matter of fact, a 2009 study showed that military service personnel outpaced the rest of the population for food-stamp dependency...so a great many of them are serving this country so you can speak ill of our president, and so you can whine about having it so good.
Reminds me of the 75 year old complaining about his upcoming birthday...and the 92 year listening to the whining...calmly said:"Gee what a pity!"
First you are screaming about there being no jobs, and then you are whining about your taxes and insurance....basically I don't know which, are off your meds, just like being vocally abusive about the president, or independently nuts, or paid by someone to be a negative troll?
@12dec dude settle down, if u r part of the 47% thats leeching than u are part of the problem, get a freaking job if u are, over the years i have taken lesser jobs , hey it sucks but do what u have to do, and for 1,000,000,000,000 time
i am an indy who is fed up with both parties, however in all my years Oblunder is the worse ive seen, just one freaking day maybe he could work on creating jobs but no the sideshows continue to distract from his ineptness
Your intelligence level is showing and it sucks.
well it sucks when u r wrong,, which is the norm for you !!!! what have u done to get someone a job besides bitch about it ??? hey make your own profit and do with it what u will, please just quit being a leech !!!
Good to see jean2009 and December2012 finally roll out of bed and enlighten us with their brilliant comments again..........
Right on Jean. Robme should have picked "bb" as his VP. They have the same level of intelligence.
Jean has been up since 5:30 but her garden beckoned....gotta beat the heat.
Plus, the moderator is still sitting on my post at 10:49 a.m.
FOR AN 'INDY' YOU ARE INDEED VERY STUPID. AN INDEPENDENT ACTUALLY LOOKS AT FACTS AND SPECIFICS BEFORE MAKING POLITICAL DECISIONS. THEY DO NOT RELY ON PARTISAN RHETORIC WHICH YOU HAVE BEEN THROWING AROUND IN ABUNDANCE. YOU ARE ABOUT AS INDEPENDENT AS RICK SANTORUM, AND PROBABLY ABOUT AS SANE AS WELL.
u believe what u want, i could care less i really suggest u read b-4 u make your self even dumer looking , if possible
HOW ABOUT WE SETTLE THIS WITH I CANNOT MAKE MYSELF ANY MORE 'DUMER' THAN YOU.
AFTER ALL, I AM NOT THE ONE WHO BELIEVES ALONG WITH MITT ROMNEY THAT 47% OF AMERICANS ARE 'LEECHES.'
Ha! you're the last person that should talk, from day one you've posted hard left talking points.
IF YOU ARE MISTAKING FACTS FOR TALKING POINTS THEN YOU ARE AN IDIOT. YOUR VERY NAME IS PART OF THE NOISE THAT COMES FROM THE RIGHT WHEN YOU CANNOT ARGUE FACTS.
THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS, MITT ROMNEY HAS THROWN 47% OF AMERICANS UNDER THE BUS AND THAT VERY WELL INCLUDES PEOPLE WHO WOULD ACTUALLY VOTE FOR HIM. YOU ARE JUST GOING TO HAVE TO SWALLOW THAT FACT BECAUSE YOU ARE GOING TO HEAR ABOUT IT FOR WEEKS TO COME.
At least Romney owns up to what he said. He acknowledged he said it. It could have been stated a little bit more "politically correct" (notice sarcasm here). Obama has yet to acknowlege anything he has ever said. He still wants to blame someone else.
BUSY DAY FOR THE POTUS. No.., not helping America, but helping himself at our expense., as usual.
He only worries about the "50+" who voted for him. HaHaHaHa...
Well Mitt! What do you have to say about the 49 multi-billion dollar corporations "corporations you consider people" which not only didn't pay any Federal income tax between 2008-2010 not once cent (nada-zip-zero-zilch). Corporations which also received a larger tax refund (billions) more than many of us can even comprehend. The very same greedy corporations which had their hand out for a bailout, which was due to the pickle they of their own doing had put us in....a bailout which was provided by raiding the retirement funds of Social Security, Veterans and Federal Employees Pension Fund among others. Many of them are the same fat cats who are bankrolling your campaign.
Yes, 47% of the American people do not make enough income to pay federal income tax but it flies in the face of reason to think they do not pay taxes....if you own a car you pay taxes, if you ride the subway you pay taxes....if you buy toilet paper or laundry soap you pay taxes....if you own or rent property you pay taxes.
so what, its called business they create JOBS, they do business with other businesses that create JOBS, what we need right now are JOBS not Madonna in the oval office, u all have some valid points but u r distracted by the oblunder side show, we are sinking fast !!! without jobs, no taxes and every thing goes down , education is worthless with no where to use it, please try to keep up and stay on track we are in a lot of trouble in this country and the blamer and creep aint getting it done, end of story
Soon you may get your way Jean....and many of them leave the US for friendly govts and taxation. You see this is what happens when your type continues to chip away at the producers...they soon come to realize they don't need this crap anymore and move on.
In a real sense too many of them are not producers they are just here as hogs at the trough takers.
oh...the federal employees, union bosses, and whom else....jean?
obama is doing all he know how ...campaign and organize with flowery empty speak...feel good nonsense. While things slowly fall apart domestically and overseas. The mine sweepers are in the Gulf, Israel has called up their reservests and locked and loaded, the middle east is on fire and getting worse...slipping into total anarchy. The dollar is losing value, American's credit rating drops again. Unemployement is posed to increase...and the pseudo president blabs on... time for adult leadership.
@jean dec 12, i think its great these companys paid little taxes , they can afford to keep thier employees instead of canning them, Look if u dont understand how business works, its ok take a class, and yes people who work the system are leeches, end of story. If your boy is so smart and a harvard dude, why cant he figure a way out???? and no dont blame Bush, jerk-off has had 4 freaking years. as i see it his head is so far up his pitute it will take decades if not centuries to pull it out, take some business classes or better yet just read, not snips but really read, it will help you both with your ignorance
I blame congress heaven knows the president has tried...I'm sorry you think I have no business sense, but actually my major. I don't mind a company making money that is their job, but that being said, they need to invest in the country and locality where they make , or plan to make their money...and far too many companies are only into give me, give me...greed. Never want to put a dime back into infrastructure, continuing education...just being hogs.
an example please...mz business major.
NOT SURE HOW I GOT DRAGGED INTO THIS BUT OK. I WORKED FOR A FINANCIAL COMPANY FOR 15 YEARS. THESE LARGE BANKS ARE ALL ABOUT PROFIT, THEY ARE BEHOLDEN TO THEIR STOCKHOLDERS AND THEIR EMPLOYEES ARE AT THE BOTTOM EXCEPT FOR THEIR SHINY EXECUTIVES. ABOUT THE ONLY TIME A HIRING DECISION IS CONSIDERED IMPORTANT IS IF IT HURTS THE COMPETITION WHICH IS LARGELY TRUE FOR THE PEOPLE WHO BRING IN MONEY TO THE BANK, THE OTHER STAFF ARE A NECESSARY EVIL. YOU CAN SEE THIS REFLECTED IN HOW EMPLOYEES GET PAID TOO.
IT IS A REALITY THAT THE JOB MARKET FOR MANY SEGMENTS THESE CORPORATIONS TYPICALLY HIRE HAS SHRUNK LARGELY DUE TO OUTSOURCING AND AS A PENALTY FOR MAKING BAD BUSINESS DECISIONS. THIS IS TRUE FROM MANY INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY JOBS, ENGINEERING, CUSTOMER SERVICE, ETC. AND THE TRUTH IS, THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS AND I DON'T THINK IT WILL CHANGE ANYTIME SOON. PEOPLE WILL JUST HAVE TO LEARN TO ADJUST, LEARN NEW SKILLS AND EXPLORE NEW JOB MARKETS. THAT IS THE WAY TO GET OUT OF THIS HIGH UNEMPLOYMENT RUT. YOU CAN SCREAM AT THE PRESIDENT ALL YOU WANT, THAT'S NOT GOING TO CHANGE THE SITUATION BECAUSE AFTER ALL, WE LIVE IN A FREE MARKET SOCIETY.
Gee I wonder how tough the Letterman interview will be?
Man, we have one busy, hardworking president (insert sarcasm here)
$16 Trillion in debt, with another 4 billion added every day..., meanwhile Obama and his state run media campaigns.
Now we know of those 47% who Robme claims pay no federal income tax CNN Money now reports that 47% includes not only the elderly, the disabled, under-paid military service families, but also 4,000 millionaires. WHAT FOUR THOUSAND MILLIONAIRES!
Now let's hear the Teapotties and Not-So-Independant's rant for us to give those poor freeloading millionaires a free pass.
Where is: bb, Nobama, Caramon, Howard, Jay, and The Kool tea drinker...Please!
SINCE ROMNEY HAS BEEN UNEMPLOYED ALL THESE YEARS I WOULD BET HE WOULD BE ONE OF THOSE MILLIONAIRES. HE PRETTY MUCH ADMITTED TO THIS DURING THE REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES DEBATE.
Where are the tax returns? Why can't they be seen?
this means nothing...isnt there something more important to focus on....perhaps the fumbling mess obummerbutt has made of the middle east and the economy...and how about those coal company layoffs this week...those 1200 new jobless humans. And, how about carters sneaky grandson and Jimmys at a boy on this attempted trashing of a presidential candidate. Is this proper behavior of a former president? There could be a good story there....the smutty scum bag democratic party.....we really need some adult leadership, enough of obama and his mob.
Good for the big 4, this what america is about, if u dont like the tax laws, work at getting them changed, the bottom line is 47% are not paying taxes, so 53% are the 53% are carrying the other half, it can not continue, the whole wall will collapse. If u have a business major and are as smart as u say u r, Oblunder has a harvard degree, Why are things getting worse ??? Why arent u opening your own business ??? Why is Oblunder trying to divide the country ????
Why r we getting over run?? the only ans is Oblameo is INEPT
carters grandson sitting a his computer day after day looking for something to use against Gov Romney and finally he finds it and says: "this is the best story I've done in my career!" And his beloved grandfather former president jimmy (the idiot) carter tells him "good work, that is fantastic". Typical liberal nutcase behavior...can't win on their record so they tear down good people who have good works and intents behind them....we really need adult leadership...badly.
WHILE WE SHOULD THANK JAMES CARTER FOR FINDING SUCH A REVEALING PIECE, WE SHOULD REALLY THANK MITT ROMNEY FOR OPENING HIS MOUTH AND SAYING SOME OF THE MOST ABSURD THINGS A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SHOULD NEVER BE CAUGHT DEAD SAYING.
Obama Middle East policies have been a total failure resulting in thousands of US troops dead; but the media continues to ignore:
The impostor POTUS can not find time to meet Israel's Prime Minister, but is tripping in the lights of the ONE PER CENTERS J Z, Beyonce or whatever etc. Another 2 faced stance by the Imposter in Chief. Netanyahu is going to put egg all over BOZOBAMA's half breed face when he strikes Iran and shows what real leadership is about. This clown was campaigning when Ambassador Stevens and 3 other Americans were killed. The liberal shard, Valerie Jarret, has more protection at Martha's Vinyard that Stevens had in Bengazi on 9/11 anniversary!!!!!! Write about something that matters unless you are completely incapable. What IS the point of this article, please?
What type of "moderation?"
Jimmy Carter's grandson is the leaker????? How funny! So the grandson of what used to be the worst President in my lifetime (Obama is now) is going to try to turn this election?????? Too bad he didn't live while his grandpappy was President with 16% interest on home mortgages, gas lines, a hostage crisis that he couldn't resolve.... need I go on? The truth is ROMNEY TOLD THE TRUTH. Although I don't agree with the way he said it, the fact is that 1/2 this country is paying for federal programs for the other 1/2, period. Take Medicare and Social Security out of it (because a portion of those 47% do pay those taxes) and 1/2 are paying for the military, the protection of our country. President Obama has CREATED this environment. He wants it. In order to 'redistribute' the wealth, we ALL HAVE TO COME DOWN. That means more people in poverty, more people unemployed, higher taxes on those that ARE paying taxes, need I go on????? The left can be insulted but take a look at what has gone on under this President. He has no intention of taking steps to get this economy moving at the pace it should. He says he is the President of ALL Americans? Really? He has never spoken to ME. He has done nothing but divide this country since he took office. After all, you have to create chaos in order to make people subservient, right? Take a look at history folks. It's true. He's a sham. Vote for opportunity, not for dependency. That is what this country was built on. We are looking more and more like Europe. That may be the President's dream but it's not MY dream. He has 3 days notice that the Libyan embassy is going to be attacked and he DOES NOTHING. Asleep at the wheel. Funny how the left is quiet about that. So sad that a portion of this country preys on the unfortunate. So sad that our President tries to capitalize on it.
Actually George W. ranks worse than Carter on the Sienna College Poll...so yes your term used to be is correct...Raygun and Dubya in my estimate rank worst. .
I happened to be maybe one of the few people posting here that build a new home during the Carter Administration...our interest rate was 7.3/4%, plus the return on investments savings was very good.
I will lay the current mess exactly where it should be, and as everyone who is not trying to spin it knows it should be...at the feet of George W. Bush.
RONALD REAGAN'S SON WOULD LIKE TO HAVE HIS FATHER'S REPUBLICAN PARTY BACK. THE CURRENT GROUP OF CONTEMPTIBLE IDIOTS HAVE NO RESPECT AND LOVE FOR THE LESS FORTUNATE AND THE ELDERLY, THEY ALL MAKE GEORGE W. BUSH LOOK BAD.
Good morning! Didn't know I had to check in at any set time in the morning before I head for the garden....but Heh! You know November it was said "Romney must have honey on his toes he keeps putting them in his mouth"
.Beisdes where is your indignation at the 4,000 millionaires...Nada, zip, zilch? Just as expected, nothing from you but whining about Jimmy Carter IV doing his job as a computer whiz. I seem to notice you spend a lot of time on here just whining.
FYI -We have adult leadership, plus we don't want to go back to the type of leadership that allows the economy to tank so he can gives so many tax write-offs it allows 4,000 millionaires to pay no taxes.
Way to go Obama! Keep campaigning, appearing on Letterman, meeting with Beyonce and Jay-Z. By the way did you notice the US embassy's being attacked??? Maybe you didn't get the memo from Prime Minister Netanyahu. Can you please do your job????
And no time to meet with Netanyahu, wow!
I want to point out many of us "47%ers" eagerly want to feel wealthy. Money we worked for are normally spent to splurge for ourselves or our family to enjoy what we have earned so we may feel like a "rich person". Sometimes we buy nice things or go on vacations to make us feel like a "rich person". However, after all is spent, we go back to work, pay our 35%, and save for the next opportunity to spend like a "rich person". In the end, us consumers benefit from this short moment of feeling wealthy while business benefit from our expenses...money is cycled to help everyone.
On the other hand, however, if you are a super "rich person", you don't have to face the reality of working 50 hours a week to feel rich. You can sleep all week while you earn millions and enjoy paying less than 15% tax. Instead of spending (or cycling the money) so small businesses benefit for them, they hide it away in trust funds or offshore accounts.
All Republicans created this separation and all Republican representatives MUST NOT be voted into office. They impede the lives of 99%ers.
Wheres the pictures?
More fund raisers with the rich, shows how out of touch Obama is.
I'm sure that the clowns who paid more money for a dinner with Obummer than I make in a year pay no taxes. Not to mention poor Obummer has it so hard..NOT
Obummer is never out partying with his middle class. Gee I thought he was door the middle class? What I once thought was Obama the great, is truly Obama the Fake.
How come my simply comments are not posted?
