POTUS's schedule for Tuesday, July 10: Cedar Rapids

President Obama travels to Iowa – a state he won by 10 points back in 2008 – to hold a campaign rally in sunny Cedar Rapids. While in Iowa the president will hold a roundtable discussion with a local Iowa family and then deliver remarks at a campaign event on middle class tax relief. Obama will certainly continue to push the message on the campaign trail today, that Congress should pass a one-year extension of the Bush-era tax cuts for households making less than $250,000 a year and let the rest of those cuts for wealthier Americans expire. In a round of local affiliate interviews on Monday, the president confirmed what Press Secretary Jay Carney said at the White House briefing. If Congress passed a bill that included a tax cut extension for wealthier Americans, Obama would veto it. He'll return to DC later this evening.

      Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets; "Go back to Boston ! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die. Through love of having children, we are going to take over.

      Richard Alatorre, Los Angeles City Council. "They're afraid we're going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They're right. We will take them over . . . We are here to stay."

      Excelsior, the national newspaper of Mexico , "The American Southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction ofMexico without firing a single shot."

      Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez, University of Texas ; "We have an aging white America . They are not making babies. They are dying. The explosion is in our population . . . I love it. They are shitting in their pants with fear. I love it."

      Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democratic Party, "Remember 187–proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens–was the last gasp of white America in California ."

      Gloria Molina, Los Angeles County Supervisor, "We are politicizing every single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country . . ... I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, "I'm going to go out there and vote because I want to pay them back."

      Mario Obledo, California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and California State Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Governor Jerry Brown, also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton, " California is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave."

        I was shocked to read this. So I searched snopes, which verifies accuracy of such statements. Alas, these statements were indeed made. Here's the link: http://www.snopes.com/politics/quotes/hispanicleaders.asp. The only quote that Snopes could not verify but also did not invalidate is the one in the Excelsior newspaper

      I assume you are a lib. As a lib all you know how to do to fix the current mess is to raise taxes, just like Obama. But, unlike Obama who knew he couldn't get billions in taxes passed by either party, Obama called it something else to get it passed, then has his lawyers call it a tax to get it by the Supreme Court.
      Obama is a liar or a con man or both. Take your pick.
      Re-Romney – crazy libs are trying to make him out to be bad, but, no matter how you look at it, he is a good person, unlike Obama who has proven he will throw his wife under the bus to get a laugh. To me, Romney has class and tries to take care of others. Obama has no class and looks out only for Obama...

      This is a retread idea he already tried. Where are all those bold new plans? He certainly has no creativity or imagination, he just keeps saying the same old things.

    Does this guy ever work for us or only for himself? He is the president, right? Why would he need to raise a single dollar. He gets free TV time. Free news coverage.

    It is time for the Obama's to go back to Chicago. The mojo is gone.
