      Spending is up .05% and the libs think we are moving "forward". Everything I buy is up several % points. Figure it out libs. Don't follow the party line blindly when they tell you "this is good news, we are moving forward".

        $16t in debt.....that should be enough reason not to vote for Obama again but it's thrown around so loosely they can't grasp the severity of it..........

        i love how republicans have assigned all of our debt to the President, as if it was 0 when he was elected, not like the previous president left him with trillions in unpaid for war debt or a collapsing economy

        September 28, 2012 at 1:45 pm |
      • John

        Mcskiddle – I love how libs think everyone who disagrees with them is a lib. Obama is responsible for the trillions he ran up and Bush is responsible for the trillions he ran up. Obama spent more in 3 years than Bush did in 8. Bush was bad, Obama still is bad.
        Are you libs just going to ingnore the fact that Obama just made fools out of you blind followers? Obviously he can tell you libs anything and you fall for it. He is the biggest con man this country has ever seen.

        No MCS, we only assign 5T of the deficit to the current administration. Hi ssolution appears to be to ask our wealthiest Americans to paid just a little bit more. I have seen this Ad. It sounds good but the CBO reports this will increase revenue by 70B each year. Yet the deficit increases more than 1 T each year. At this rate, our current deficit will be over 20T in another 4 years. The should we begin to worry?

        Maybe a few cents on some things, but gasoline has not equalled the $4.28 national average per gallon of June/July of 2008 and your IRA and securities savings are not in the tank like they were in 2007-2008.

        ------------
        Really Jean? According to Department of Labor statistics Average gas prices was $2.509 in Jan 2009, the month when Bush left and Obama came in, I guess your right though, cause an increase of $1.16 per gallon is only a "few cents more". As of August 21012 it was $3.669.

        make up your mind. Either a President controls gas prices or they don't!

        It's becoming sadder and more frightening each day to realize what a nation of morons we have! I will have no sympathy for ANY Obama supporter who slides off the cliff when the crisis hits if he's given another 4 years to complete the destruction of the United States. The man believes the U.S. is "due" a comeuppance, as he was taught by his America hating family, and he's seeing to it. We'll be bankrupt if not first blown off the map by Iran. Hope the liberals are ready for what's coming – and don't knock on my door for help.

      • KarenFaye

        to December2012 - PLEASE show us Obama's military credentials. In fact, show us ANY CREDENTIALS THAT HE HAS PAID OVER A MILLION BUCKS TO HIDE. His benefactors during his college years were OVERSEAS OIL MILLIONAIRES - hence, his war on American oil. Do the research - there's soooooooo much nobody knows about his halfblack failure in the White House – but his Al Green singing impression trumps it all for the Liberals.

        The prez became Commander In Chief when he assumed office. Prior to that, he had no military credentials I THINK that was the gist of the question that was posed to you. I would hope most people know President = Commander In Chief.

        Guess what, NamVet, THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER HAS PAID FOR YOUR BENEFITS ALL THESE YEARS LATER. You don't give a sh*t about that?? I say WE CARE about the fact our troops put their lives on the line. SOME people went over the line in a shameful way BUT NONE OF US are sorry we protested that immoral war. Even my brothers who served during Vietnam thought it was a CRAP WAR. MITT ROMNEY'S DAD while serving in office went to Vietnam and came back saying he felt he had been manipulated and BRAINWASHED by the BRASS while over there on a tour.
        Mitt's dad lost in the REPUBLICAN PRIMARY because they PORTRAYED HIM AS NUTS. It ENDED his career. Mitt won't take the side of the troops 'cause it might end his. You're just a victim, NamVet, like the rest of the 47% VICTIMIZING the government the Republicans visualize as too big, except when they want to throw their weight around the world and MITT'S RICH CORPORATE BUDDIES who feel they deserve to be defended by our country for free.

        Used to be that farm laborers had to live out of broken down trailors with a dozen other workers with NO PLUMBING, NO HEAT, NO WATER facilities. They were paid pretty crappy to boot – just so Howard could buy twenty sticks of corn, three bags of potatos, three dozen eggs, a bushel of tomatos AND buy his wine all totaled at $3.00 a shot. They're JUST MEXICANS. Who cares?....Howard doesn't. In fact Americans don't even WANT TO DO THE WORK THEY DO. Go ask a farmer.
        It's 103 Degrees outside today where I live. Howard, I don't see you out in the fields trying to support your family, why not?? Because you are inside the AIR CONDITIONED GROCERY STORE that has to pay for your shopping comfort while you are COMPLAINING about MEXICANS!!

      Somehow they will say it is Bush's fault.
      How long are those stupid libs going to buy what Obama is selling? He is one of the best con men this country has ever seen. It is amazing some of the stuff they put out there.
      They hire tax cheats into key possitions then make a big deal out of Romney only releasing two years of taxes.
      The police in Cambridge acted stupidly according to Obama – when he didn't have a clue about the situation. The current attack was because of a movie according to Obama WHEN THEY KNEW IT WAS A TERROR ATTACK. Yesterday it came out that we have another Solindra out there – and Obama campaign funder got millions for his gree company.
      These clowns in office know their blind followers will follow no matter what. Let's just hope we have enough people who are still working that will vote this clown out of office.

        Romney released TWO YEARS of tax returns? TWO?? When did the second one get released? NEWS ALERT – He has NO PLANS to release the second. He suffers in the polls for just that kind of thing. It makes him look shady.

        Its not a question of.., Obama withheld the truth from the American people for political reason.
        Its a sad sad day when Libya's president has to inform America of the real reasons behind the murder of Americans.

        ==>
        Libyan President Magarief noted that there were NO protesters at the consulate prior to the attack, and that the incident was a clearly coordinated assault.. He also noted the attackers used rocket-propelled grenades on the consulate and then fired mortars at a safe house where Stevens had fled.

        "It's a pre-planned act of terrorism," Magarief said, concluding that the trailer for a purported film called “Innocence of Muslims” had "nothing to do with this attack."

        September 28, 2012 at 1:27 pm |
      • RealityBites

        Obama rushed to down play these attacks in order to protect his re-election bid. And Omedia team responded with zill without following up on the facts.. Welcome to the progressive norm.
        But the use of "spontaneous demonstrations" is much more disgusting than just trying to protect yourself., its a blatant attempt to hide the truth behind our very own ideals of freedom of speech. As if they should be curtailed to prevent something like this in the future.

        "During the 1992 presidential campaign, Clinton promised that if elected he would slash the intelligence budget by $1.5 billion every year for 5 years from 1993-1997. That represented something like an annual cut of 5% for 5 years, or 25% total. As he was about to leave office in early 1993, Bush warned:

        As we face a more turbulent and unpredictable world, and as our military forces are being reduced, I just don’t think that we ought to be contemplating significant reductions in the intelligence budget. We need more intelligence, not less.

        As he was about to leave office in early 1993, Bush warned:

        As we face a more turbulent and unpredictable world, and as our military forces are being reduced, I just don’t think that we ought to be contemplating significant reductions in the intelligence budget. We need more intelligence, not less.

        As he was about to leave office in early 1993, Bush warned:

        As we face a more turbulent and unpredictable world, and as our military forces are being reduced, I just don’t think that we ought to be contemplating significant reductions in the intelligence budget. We need more intelligence, not less.

        Next month, Sen. Moynihan said $10 billion could be cut from the intelligence budget and no one would ever miss it. Former CIA Director Robert Gates criticized Congress for not properly exercizing their oversight responsibilities of the intelligence budget in any meaningful way.

        When discussing the budget for FY1994, Clinton said:

        It is clear that the intelligence community must do more with limited resources. As I promised during the campaign, we will save a total of $7 billion over the years 1993-1997 from the previous administration's request for
        national and tactical intelligence programs""..

        http://blog.stephenleary.com/2008/09/intelligence-budgets-during-clinton.html

        Could this be why Bush "Lied" to Congress"? Could it be the intel community was not up to standards due to budget cuts? Could this be why Bush had to rely on foreign intel?

        Agree or disagree but this is something to think about!

        What is up Steveo? I understand what you are saying, I just do not understand the blind followers. Obama outright makes up a story and has administration run with it to purposely deceive all of the American people. He has been caught and the blind followers still defend him.
        As a person who served I am sure you can imagine the fear our ambasador and the others felt before they were tourtured. According to the dirary that was found these people knew of the danger they were in. There is no doubt in my mind they were asking for protection that never arrived. It is disgraceful for Obama to call it a bump in the road and even more so to spend thousands in the middle east promoting the fact that "America didn't have anything to do with the movie". Now it comes out the person who made the move worked as a GOVERNMENT INFORMANT? Obama acting stupidly this time has cost Americans their lives.

Yet when Libyan officals called it a terror attack and we just pooh poohed it! We need to find out what happened! No more slowing rolling this! if we find out somebody knew, somebody needs to pay.

      WAKE UP PEOPLE !!!
      There are so many examples of how Obama and the biased main stream media have misled the public in order to give Obama an unfair advantage in this election, and the election of 2008. In a fair, honest, and objective election ... without trumped up accusations of racism, gender warfare, class warfare, and other B.S., Obama wouldn't stand a chance.
      I believe the polls are skewed, and if you look back at the 2010 election, or the Scott Walker recall election, the polls
      were way off. One of the areas the Republicans are ahead is voter enthusiasm. Having the polls portray Obama as
      the winner all ready, is just a desperate attempt to dampen Republican turnout. Pushing early voting is another trick
      to acquire votes before there's even a debate. Obama uses cheating ... mudslinging ... empty promises ... and, any
      other tactic, in order to hold onto power at any cost.

        The Republicans have active campaigns in several states to suppress the vote. They have been caught cheating in their efforts at voter registration ON CAMERA. Their voter registration drives collecting for Romney and not the other side. They have planned vigilante groups to work as poll watchers with the intent to intimidate and harass voters, asking questions like HAVE YOU PAID TAXES AT THIS ADDRESS? –Which Is NOT A Requirement FOR VOTING. The F.B.I. has stated that it is A FELONY to operate in this manner. It's all over the news, Howard. EVERYDAY. But, you don't care. If you cared about Democracy you would defend the most basic right of the citizens to choose their leaders at the ballot box. You accuse others of being Communists when it suits you and then turn a blind eye to the cheating and manipulation of your own party's tampering in your own primaries. Now, not a peep from you about the efforts of your party to plan and execute methods to disenfrancise voters like is done in a Communist country. If you believe this country is great then, DEFEND EVERY CITIZENS RIGHT TO VOTE!! Stop your party from trying to silence the voices of it's citizens!!!

        @ jean and Cindy ...
        EVERYONE knows that Obama has done a terrible job over the past 4 years. No matter how much the biased media, and you Obama stooges say otherwise ... every time we get gas or food, we experience the bad economy ... and, our foreign relations are a mess. Obama rode the rising tide of being the first black president ... along with the media, he has heavily campaigned for the last 4 years. He has pitted half of America against the other half. And, he has milked 'popular' themes and celebrities, to hog the headlines ... but, he has been a TERRIBLE president. If Obama gets reelected, you can kiss America goodbye. Four more years, without the concern of reelection, will result in his ignoring our constitution, further filling our government with unelected bureaucrats, more distribution of other people's money, avoidance of accountability and oversight ... and, a declining America, ruled by a totalitarian White House.

        Los Angeles Times today -
        Voter registration forms found in TEN Florida counties by Election Officals who identified them as turned in by a firm working for the Republican Party of Florida have been CITED AS SUSPICIOUS AND POSSIBLY FRAUDULENT. This story being covered by other news sources (I haven't seen it yet on Fox)

        Another girl in Colorado caught ON CAMERA saying she worked for the Clerk's Office admited registering Romney supporters ONLY after asking the person filming if they were voting for Obama or for Romney (INFORMATION THAT IS NOT ALLOWED BY LAW TO BE ASKED BY THOSE WHO ARE DOING THE REGISTRATION DRIVE)

        I remember the video. I doubt seriously that the woman has changed in any way. I think the same is true for some voters who could care less about the issues. However, credit to December, I also know some highly educated people, knowledgeable about the issue, planning to vote for President Obama. I may disagree but it is refreshing to see.

        Throbbing member – the other day you told me there was no such thing as "Obama Money". Do you remember that? I was quoting a dumb welfare lib who said she didn't have to pay for gas or rent anymore because she was getting "ObamaMoney". The we see last night – people getting "ObamaPhones".. That is what Obama has done for working people. Millions and millions more on food stamps, Half of the population getting a governmnet handout and the workforce is down to it's lowest point in over 30 years. But, Obama and his clowns are telling you they created 4 million jobs AND YOU LIBS THINK HE IS TELLING YOU THE TRUTH???

        December
        Caramon has not looked up snopes which knocks down the rumor there are expensive phones for the homeless. Basically it is no frills cell phones with 30 minutes per month.
        Nor has Caramon or others commenting here read the article in Forbes – Are Tax Payers Paying for Free Cell Phones?
        Basically this program dates to: The Telecommunications Act of 1996 which in Florida was put in place in 2008.
        This is a program which has never been supported by Federal Taxes.

        For those looking for a job it would be an absolute necessity and a wise use of our funds.

BUT WE ALSO SHOULD HAVE ALSO LEARNED SOMETHING FROM MITT ROMNEY: NOT EVERYONE HAS THAT 'VICTIM' MENTALITY. I BELIEVE MOST PEOPLE WHO END UP RELYING ON THE SAFETY NET PROGRAMS AT SOME POINT IN THEIR LIVES DID NOT WANT TO BE THERE AND WILL WORK HARD TO GET OUT OF IT TO IMPROVE THEIR LIVES.

    True dat. At the moment, it does appear as thought the President will likely win the election. Polls currently show this. However, polls can be misleading. Misleading yes, but not always wrong. I believe that Mitt Romney will decide this election. It is his to win or his to lose. December has provided some valuable insight as to what it would take for Mitt Romney to win undecided voters. He needs some nay-sayers in his advisory. These would be people who, not necessarily want to vote for the President, but have yet to be convinced to vote for Romney. More on specifics.

    Did you read anything about the UN trying to implement a global tax? If true, I suspect President Obama would likely sign on.

    September 28, 2012 at 1:39 pm |
    • Kool-Aid Police

      The UN has no taxing authority but you're right, Obama probably would go along with it. That's what cap&trade was all about, redistribution on a global scale.

By dissing her efforts you are defending your own unhealthy lifestyle, maybe?? Put down those potato chips. Healthy eating habits and excercise not only will save your life but will add to the quality of your life. Try it. Most of all, continue doing it for more than a day.

    i see obama finally met with Israel and Israel hinted toward not attacking Iran until after the elections...just like obama refusing to do reform(for the last two years), that is tax,entitlements,and military and federal pension reform until after the elections...it is always obama first and the country after. Problem is we have increased our debt to GNP ratio by 50% over the past two years while obama spends to by votes. It's just too bad all Americans can't see we have a very narcissistic sick inhumane person in power...and God help us if he is able to manipulate himself into another four years.

        Just to give you some comfort, november, you might be pleased to know that we have ELEVEN Aircraft Carriers. The rest of the world has TEN TOTAL (Italy has two, does that send you into a panic attack OR WHAT?!! Damn, Italians.)

        When another country has free elections, we don't get to decide who they choose. Just like it's SUPPOSED to work in a sovereign nation.

    To all of u that hold these racist and hateful feelings ..... I feel so sorry for u all. Not only r u too cowardly to express the real reason you dislike the POTUS so much, but u r to cowardly to tell the truth about his accomplishments and Mitt's incompetence to b POTUS. IF Mitt were Black, no way n the world would u all b justifying his consistent behavior that purports the same imcompetence. I'm just glad that the POTUS ALWAYS rises above the worthless chatter, above the obviously racist comments, and I'll intent towards him and his family. He has more integrity and character in his big toe, then most of u have in your entire being. God bless u and I'll b praying for you all, at around 11:00p.m. On November 6, 2012.

      And if you point your finger at other people enough you expect people not to notice the overwhelming racism that drives people like you to support Obama? If Obama was white would you be so eager to defend his blatant incompetence and complete disregard for the good of the American people? Of course not.

      You're so blinded by your mindless racist hate that you simply can't accept the reality of what is going on in this country.. and that's something Obama has encouraged in you. He counts on the racism, it's the basis of his political support.
