Romney was not "deeply involved" in Bain Capital in 2001 when GST Steel went bankrupt. He left operations of Bain in 1999. The person who was working at Bain at the time of the bankruptcy was Obama campaign bundler Jonathan Lavine,

Obama campaigning in 2007: " We will not take a DIME from Washington lobbyists or special interest PACs. We are going to change how Washington works. They will not fund my party, they will not run our White House, and they will not drown out the voice of the American people."

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/white-house-visitor-logs-show-lobbying-going-strong/2012/05/20/gIQA2ok4dU_story.html?wprss=

"The visitor logs for Jan. 17 — one of the most recent days available — show that the lobbying industry Obama has vowed to constrain is a regular presence at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. The records also suggest that lobbyists with personal connections to the White House enjoy the easiest access.
The White House visitor records make it clear that Obama’s senior officials are granting that access to some of K Street’s most influential representatives. In many cases, those lobbyists have long-standing connections to the president or his aides. Republican lobbyists coming to visit are rare, while Democratic lobbyists are common, whether they are representing corporate clients or liberal causes."

Republican's latest crybaby tantrum rally is, "It's only a flip-flop if a Republican does it!!"


Am I the only one who remembers the term "flip-flop" having its genesis with the John Kerry smear campaign? The question, ultimately, isn't who is calling names, but who the names fit. Unfortunately, it fit Kerry quite well, which honestly was one of the main reasons he embarrassingly lost that election.

And now...?

Romney can't call the plasticity of his ideas "evolution," because evolution doesn't go backwards.

Obama and the Dems in Congress are planning on cutting the D.C. Voucher program that has helped send hundreds of poor, black children to prestigious private schools (similar to the private school Pres. Obama attended and similar to the one his two daughters currently attend).
The parenst of black teens in this video want to ask Prsident Obama, "WHY?"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l7FS5B-CynM

From THE WASHINGTON POST:

Why is Obama killing off D.C.'s voucher program?

The Obama administration said it was going to respect science and respond to evidence -- a contrast, many Democrats said, to the previous regime. So why is President Obama killing off the program that offers the best chance to find out if school vouchers work?

Congress has been paying for the D.C. Opportunity Scholarship Program, which helps more than a thousand District children attend private schools. It gives a chance of a future to children who otherwise would be condemned to attend failing schools. How can that be bad?

Generally, opponents offer two arguments. One is that it won't solve the whole problem. Well, no. That's why everyone should support what Chancellor Michelle Rhee is trying to do to improve all D.C. schools. But even she supports the scholarship program. She testified before the Senate last September that until her reforms have had a few more years to take root, she can't guarantee a quality education to every District child. No wonder that every year there have been many more applicants for the vouchers than vouchers to give out.

The second objection is that if children or families with get-up-and-go actually get up and go, things will be even worse for those left behind. There are a lot of problems with this argument, but the main one is that the people who make it usually aren't willing to condemn their own children to attend terrible high schools in order to improve things for the other kids there. Why should we demand that of families who have high aspirations but can't afford to move?

But even if you're inclined against vouchers, why not embrace a program that has a chance to shed real light on the long-running, fraught and inconclusive argument about their effectiveness? The D.C. program was established to provide such evidence. It enrolled a control group of children who applied for vouchers but didn't get them, and it is following them along with the kids with vouchers. In a couple more years, if funded robustly, it would give us a real sense of what worked and what didn't. That could be helpful to lots of children.

Yet the Obama administration seems to be doing everything it can to wind down the program. Why? Early research results have been positive -- certainly in terms of parental satisfaction, but also for achievement. Maybe the Democratic Party, and the teachers union leaders who support it, would rather not see any more evidence.

By Fred Hiatt

And where does Romney stand??

From THE WASHINGTON TIMES:

Mitt Romney said Wednesday that it was inexcusable for President Obama to try to shut down the Districts federally backed voucher pilot program that has sent thousands of the citys students to private schools.

The Opportunity Scholarship Program, which falls under the direct jurisdiction of Congress, has been politically contentious from the start, with the powerful teachers unions opposing them but parents overwhelmingly backing them.

The president shut that down, his party shut that down, said Mr. Romney while campaigning at a small business in Chantilly, Va.

The Romney camp said the former Massachusetts governor is a supporter of the D.C. program in particular, and giving parents school choice more broadly.

Sigh.
1) Michelle Rhee, like all the other talking puppets in educational politics, has had virtually NO real experience in the classroom.
From wikipedia:
Inspired by a PBS special that she saw when she was a senior in college, Rhee signed up with Teach For America, went through their brief training period in how to teach, then worked for three years as a teacher in Baltimore, Maryland.[4][6] She was assigned to one of the lowest-performing schools.[5] She had difficulty controlling her classroom the first year.[5] She has said the stress gave her hives,[5] and that she once put small pieces of masking tape on the children's mouths so they would be quiet on the way to the lunchroom.[7][8] Rhee told Washingtonian magazine that she was demoralized by her first year of teaching, but said to herself, "I’m not going to let eight-year-old kids run me out of town", and took more courses in education and received her teachers' certification.[4] Rhee first year test scores showed a precipitous drop in her class: Average math percentile dropped from 64% to 17%. Average reading percentile dropped from 37% to 21%.[9]
This is who's leading the charge towards charter schools?
Schools that have been PROVEN over and over and over simply do not work most of the time?

2)Of course Romney said the opposite. If Obama said the sky was blue he would say it was red. It doesn't matter that the sky IS blue, it's just a gut reaction.

3)The youtube video you posted is three years old. That's the best you can do?

The video may be 3 years old, but the issue is topical and current.
From this week's BALTIMORE SUN:

In D.C. schools, Obama chooses unions over kids


President zeroes out funding for popular voucher program


May 20, 2012|Robert L. Ehrlich Jr


Just when you thought the District of Columbia Opportunity Scholarship Program for poor, predominantly minority kids was fully protected from politics, here comes the Obama administration with another broadside.

The popular program (which falls under congressional jurisdiction) allows impoverished children in the notoriously underperforming D.C. public school system to attend area private schools with vouchers of up to $12,000. Its contentious history includes full-scale support from congressional Republicans and theGeorge W. Bush administration. Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, it took but a few short months for a new Obama administration to pull the plug on new applicants in 2009. The scheduled termination of the program was just another sop to anti-school-choice teachers unions from a union friendly president.
The program is quite popular. Public opinion polls reflect clear majority support within the District. And there is a reason for such public support. Objective analysis from a variety of well-respected investigators (including the research arm of the Obama administration's Education Department) reflects what common sense would lead one to suspect: Voucher recipients score better on standardized reading tests and enjoy substantially higher graduation rates, as compared with their peers in the D.C. public schools.

Simply put, the program works.

Nevertheless, now comes the Obama administration with an election-year attempt to gin up its left flank by zeroing out voucher funding in its fiscal 2013 budget. The targeted beneficiaries: teachers unions and their anti-voucher allies in Congress.

The very first sentence of this Obama ad completely negates the entire ad!!

"I really feel in my heart people need to know what Mitt Romney did to Marion, Indiana in 1994."

From FACTCHECK:
The five-minute-plus Web video produced by the Obama campaign starts with a woman saying, “I really feel in my heart people need to know what Mitt Romney did to Marion, Ind., in 1994.” A minute into the film, which was released May 21, this text appears on the screen: “1994 Bain Capital-owned Ampad buys SCM. Mitt Romney is Bain Capital’s CEO.”

Mitt Romney took leave from Bain Capital in 1994 to run for the Senate!!

There appears to be a long list of Democrats who don't like he Obama ads attacking Mitt Romney's work at Bain capital.

"Democrats balk at Obama campaign’s sustained attack on Bain Capital

By Cameron Joseph, The Hill

Some influential Democrats on and off Capitol Hill are refusing to give President Obama political cover for his attacks on Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital.

Despite pushback from more than a half-dozen Democrats, the Obama campaign on Tuesday defended how it has scrutinized Romney’s business background.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), a widely respected member of Congress, stopped short of criticizing the president, but made it clear that the campaign should pivot.

“It’s done,” she said. “Go on to other things now.”"

[For the record, Feinstein is a millionaire whose husband made most of their money doing EXACTLY what Romney did at Bain!!]

"Other Democrats who are less than enthusiastic to Obama’s Bain ad include former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, ex-Rep. Harold Ford Jr. (Tenn.) and Newark, N.J., Mayor Cory Booker. Rendell called negative ads “disappointing,” while Booker called the specific ad “nauseating.” "

Well, it doesn't appear that the attacks are working anyway!

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505267_162-57440628/attacks-on-romneys-business-past-not-sticking/

"(CBS News) WASHINGTON -- President Obama is losing ground in the latest polls to Republican challenger Mitt Romney, who's pushing back against Democrats criticizing his business experience.

As the president has stepped up his attacks on Romney and his record at the private equity firm Bain Capital, Romney has indicated, during this crucial period to define himself to the electorate, he is not going to take the attacks lying down.

"He just doesn't have a clue what to do to get this economy going. I do," Romney asserted in an interview with Mark Halperin, of Time magazine.

Romney responded aggressively Wednesday to the Obama campaign's attack on his work as CEO of Bain Capital, and to questions about his qualifications to be president.

In the Time interview, Romney turned the tables, almost scoffing at Mr. Obama's qualifications when he ran for president in 2008.

"Right now," Romney told Halperin, "we have an economy in trouble, and someone who's spent their career in the economy is more suited to help fix the economy than someone who's spent his life in politics and as a community organizer."

Full coverage: Election 2012

In the past two weeks, the Obama campaign has rolled out several attacks on Romney and his time at Bain Capital.

"He's running for president, and if he's going to run the country the way he ran our business, I wouldn't want him there," a steelworker says in one ad.

But so far, it's not working.

Instead of a bump in public opinion for the president, recent polls show Romney's approval ratings on the rise -- and sharply so in the key swing state of Florida.

With the attacks failing to resonate, the Obama campaign is hitting even harder."

I don't understand why President Obama doesn't just run on his economic record of the past three years.
Anyone out there care to answer that??

Wow!! This is HUGE! How can liberals support this guy? If this were Bush doing this, they'd be dragging him to the gallows to hang him for WAR CRIMES! This is the FLIP-FLOP of all FLIP-FLOPS. I defy anyone to defend this!!

Obama quotes: "Our legitimacy is reduced when we've got a Guantanamo Bay that is opened, when we suspend habeas corpus, those types of things erode our moral claims that we are acting on behalf of broader, universal principles."

"We're going to lead by shutting down Guantanamo and restoring habeas corpus in this country so that we offer them an example."

"I think that folks made a terrific point; that we have to stand for human rights and that should be part of the trade equation. It is harder for us to do it when we have situations like Guantanamo. Where we've suspended habeas corpus, to the extent that we are not being true to our values and our ideals, THAT sends a negative message to the world, and it gives us less leverage then when we want to deal with countries that are abusing human rights."

So, we shouldn't arrest the terrorists and hold them in Gitmo without a trial because that isn't fair, but we can fly over them and blast them to tiny pieces?
Can someone explain to me how this is legit?

While liberals go orgasmic over a Romney typo, we have President Obama talking about "Polish death camps" , thus pissing off the president of Poland!

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/05/31/world/europe/poland-bristles-as-obama-says-polish-death-camps.html

WASHINGTON — On May 28 of last year, President Obama stood next to Prime Minister Donald Tusk of Poland in Warsaw and declared he would support new rules to help more Poles get tourist visas to the United States. “If you’ve lived in Chicago and you haven’t become a little bit Polish,” Mr. Obama joked, “there’s something wrong with you.”
A year later, the president made himself the target of a searing denunciation by Mr. Tusk after he referred on Tuesday to a “Polish death camp,” instead of a Nazi death camp in Poland, in bestowing a Presidential Medal of Freedom on Jan Karski, a hero of the Polish resistance to the Germans during World War II. Mr. Obama was guilty of “ignorance, lack of knowledge, bad intentions,” Mr. Tusk said.

The White House expressed regret for what it described as a “misstatement.” But Mr. Tusk was not mollified, saying in a statement posted on his Web site that the United States needed to “end this with class.” Poland’s president, Bronislaw Komorowski, sent a more diplomatically worded letter to Mr. Obama asking him to correct the record.

Big bad news today for President Obama; only 69,000 jobs created in May and unemployment RISES to 8.2%.
Geez, if you're so stupid you can't stimulate an economy with nearly $1 trillion, then your MIGHT be in the wrong job.

June 1, 2012, 6:56 a.m.
Friday's jobs report -- only 69,000 new jobs created in May and job creation for March and April revised downward -- was close to the worst possible news for President Obama. For the third year in a row, the economy appears to have stalled in the spring after perking up in winter.

Voters' views of where the economy is headed are key for both Obama and Mitt Romney, his Republican challenger.

Aww, nice try, but that isn't going to work, Diva! But, here is a new article YOU might be interested in reading:

MIAMI—At a hastily assembled press conference Tuesday, presidential candidate Mitt Romney reached out to the nation's Hispanics, asking if they would please return the watch he had left on his dresser earlier. "As I stand before you today, I wish to issue an appeal to my Hispanic friends all across this great land of ours: Please do the right thing and give me back my property," said Romney, adding that while he didn't want to accuse the nation's 21.7 million registered Hispanic voters of stealing the watch, he was certain that no one in his family stole it, and that watches don't just walk off by themselves. "I pledge to every single Hispanic-American—whether you came here from Mexico to start a new life for your family or fled the brutality of Castro's Cuba—that if my watch is put back in its rightful place in the next two hours, I will consider the matter closed and no one will be the wiser." With the watch still not returned at press time, Romney begged the nation's Hispanics, "Please don't make me call the—how do you say it? El policío? La policía? The appropriate authorities."

I thought you might want to post that in that OTHER thread, you know, the one that has mostly links to LEFT-WING opinion writers and pages like Rachel Maddow, Huffinton Post, Mediaite, MSNBC, personal blogs and videos from the official Obama Campaign YouTube channel!!
Notice that in my little thread here, I link to actual NEWS web articles like The Washington Post, LA Times and NY Times (not known for their support of right-wingers) and from YouTube videos not necessarily associated with the Romney campaign!
Oh, and I will try to make sure that I don't get "fooled" by those nasty fake news organizations like THE ONION or FREE WOODS POST (where the banner on the top of the page says "NEWS THAT'S ALMOST RELIABLE") I will also try to refrain from references to the size of the candidate's sex organs.

David Brooks, NY Times columnist: " I question the Obama decision to go after Bain and to start negative. They've decided to focus in a negative way, and this seems to me to be self destructive. People to the left of Obama they like him personally, they admire him. And now I think they are at risk of throwing that away by starting negative, by going extremely tough, extremely hard, looking conventional, and frankly RUNNING ADS THAT ARE INACCURATE. The ad they ran against the steel company that Bain took over had a COUPLE OF INACCURACIES that were the BASIS OF THE AD. They said the company was successful until Bain took it over; THAT'S FALSE. They said Romney threw people out into the street; ROMNEY WAS GONE BY THEN. They said they were loading up debt, these companies, and dumping them. These companies have no higher default rates than anybody else.This damages (Obama's) personal reputation."
----Meet the Press, May 27, 2012

Here you have a columnist from the NY TIMES basically saying that Obama's attack ad on Romney WAS A LIE!! And I am not getting this from some far right-wing opinion web site; this is from NBC News and the NY Times!

"I find the attacks surprising from many perspectives. First of all, capitalism has lifted more people out of poverty than any other economic system in the world. Second, let us stipulate that the goal IS to lift as many people out of poverty and the way you do that is with a job. Third, successful companies create jobs, failing companies destroy jobs. I think President Obama is indicating what many of us have suspected for some time; he ACTUALLY DOESN'T UNDERSTAND HOW THE ECONOMY WORKS. Bain capital invested in small start-ups with the goal to make them successful. JOBS WERE CREATED. Finally, I find this attack, so strange. This was a man, Barack Obama, who went to American people and said, "I am a community organizer, I am an untenured law professor, I am a junior senator who has not completed a single term, I am qualified to be President. But Mitt Romney, a governor of a major state with 25 years of experience in the private sector is not qualified to be president," I find it a very surprising argument and I don;t think it's going to work."

Uh-oh!
Has President Obama lost MAUREEN DOWD??????

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/06/03/opinion/sunday/dowd-dreaming-of-a-superhero.html?_r=1&ref=opinion


Says MISS DOWD:
"A Times article by Jo Becker and Scott Shane revealed that the liberal law professor who campaigned against torture and the Iraq war now personally makes the final decisions on the “kill list,” targets for drone strikes. “A unilateral campaign of death is untenable,” the editorial asserted.

On Thursday, Bill Clinton once more telegraphed that he considers Obama a lightweight who should not have bested his wife. Bluntly contradicting the Obama campaign theme that Romney is a heartless corporate raider, Clinton told CNN that the Republican’s record at Bain was “sterling.”

Covering a humorous W. at the unveiling of his portrait, the White House press actually seemed nostalgic for the president who bollixed up Afghanistan, Iraq, Katrina and the economy — a sure sign that the Obama magic is flagging.The president who started off with such dazzle now seems incapable of stimulating either the economy or the voters. His campaign is offering Obama 2012 car magnets for a donation of $10; cat collars reading “I Meow for Michelle” for $12; an Obama grill spatula for $40, and discounted hoodies and T-shirts. How the mighty have fallen.

Once glowing, his press is now burning. “To a very real degree, 2008’s candidate of hope stands poised to become 2012’s candidate of fear,” John Heilemann wrote in New York magazine, noting that because Obama feels he can’t run on his record, his campaign will resort to nuking Romney.

In his new book, “A Nation of Wusses,” the Democrat Ed Rendell, the former governor of Pennsylvania, wonders how “the best communicator in campaign history” lost his touch."

Obama was a member of THE NEW PARTY????

When the story of Obama's association with the New Party first broke in 2008, Obama campaign spokesman Ben LaBolt claimed that Obama had never been a member.

"Right-wing hatchet man and conspiracy theorist, Stanley Kurtz is pushing a new crackpot smear against Barack falsely claiming he was a member of something called the New Party.
But the truth is Barack has been a member of only one political party, the Democratic Party. In all six primary campaigns of his career, Barack has has run as a Democrat. The New Party did support Barack once in 1996, but he was the only candidate on the ballot in his race and never solicited the endorsement."

From Obama's FIGHT THE SMEARS web page.

Now, through careful archival research, Kurtz has proven his case--and proven once again that there are many people on the left who have been willing to misrepresent and obscure facts about Barack Obama, as well as many in the mainstream media who have acted as Obama's accomplices rather than searching for the truth.
Kurtz writes:
Minutes of the meeting on January 11, 1996, of the New Party’s Chicago chapter read as follows:
"Barack Obama, candidate for State Senate in the 13th Legislative District, gave a statement to the membership and answered questions. He signed the New Party “Candidate Contract” and requested an endorsement from the New Party. He also joined the New Party."

Consistent with this, a roster of the Chicago chapter of the New Party from early 1997 lists Obama as a member, with January 11, 1996, indicated as the date he joined...

Pardon me a moment while I pat myself on the back.
I think I've done a pretty good job of keeping this thread up to date with relevant, topical and SOUNDLY SOURCED articles and quotes. I occasionally take a look at that OTHER thread and I am shocked at the ridiculous links to questionable sources, references to cartoons, silly homemade posters, bumper stickers and banners that look like they were made by a second grader and that might include the quote "Nanna Nanna boo boo!".
It never ceases to amaze me-- the immaturity and ignorance of the left.
I will continue to fill this thread with reputable and newsworthy posts (NY Times, LA Times, CBS News, MSNBC, Baltimore Sun, Washington Post, Washington TImes, and Obam's own YouTUbe channel) and I will refrain from the childish lampooning that others tend to wallow in. I have put great effort in avoiding links to pages that are often (erroneously) referred to as "right-wing" supporters; Drudge, Fox News, NY Post, NewsBusters etc. While that OTHER thread does nothing BUT provide links to left-wing pages (Huffington Post, Rachel Maddow, Patriot News (?), Mediaite, The New Civil RIghts Movement!!(????), Mashable (???), The Stranger,---yeah, THOSE are all highly respected news organizations, LOL!), I have strived to stick to REPUTABLE news sources. After all, this is the next President of the United States we are talking about here.

THe Wintour ad is positively DRIPPING with disdain for the common folk. "Here is YOUR chance to rub elbows with the elite. But the only way we'll let you in is through this wahnderful laaaahhhtery. Oh and don't be late."

And then, at this swank little party, Obama says this, "You're the tie-breaker. You're the ultimate arbiter of which direction this country goes." He then turned to his wife and said, "Come on Lovey. Let's head for the cahhhhviahhhhh."

There is a very subtle lie in Obama's latest ad about his economic plan:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70tav9QveOM&feature=plcp

Can you find it? It is a lie that the president uses every time he talks about his tax hikes for the rich. Here it is:
"And it's paid for by asking the wealthiest Americans to pay a little bit more."

This is something President Obama says all the time. In fact, he used it in his last State of the Union address; “You can call this class warfare all you want, But asking a billionaire to pay at least as much as his secretary in taxes? Most Americans would call that common sense.”

The lie, of course, is the use of the word "asking". The federal government does not "ask" people to pay the unconstitutional tax rates. You are compelled to pay these tax rates at the tip of the government sword. What happens if you don't pay? You go to jail. That is not "asking" people to pay a higher tax, it is using the force of law to make DAMN sure they pay.
Of course, Obama's plan to put teachers, firefighters, police and construction workers back to work could simply be called "Stimulus Part 2", you know, because "Stimulus Part 1" was such a HUGE success!! LOL!

Not Pres. Obama caught in a lie, but MSNBC caught editing a video tape of Mitt Romney. Andrea Mitchell introduces the clip by calling it Romney's "supermarket scanner" moment. She is referencing a false story about Pres. George H.W. Bush's "amazement" at seeing a supermarket scanner, a story made up by the NY TImes back in the 90s. So she is framing this FALSE and DISHONEST video clip with a FALSE and DISHONEST story from the past.
Anyway, this is in reference to Romney's "Wawa" speech. Apparently Wawa is a store that Romney visited where you could order a sandwich using a touch screen. Mitchell and NBC News edited the video to make it look as if Romney's point was how AMAZED he was at this innovation.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvJPG6KURV8

BUT, when you see the ENTIRE speech, UNEDITED, you see that Romney's point, about the innovations in the private sector vs the lack of innovation in the public sector, was COMPLETELY CHANGED due to the creative editing done by the hacks at NBC News.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=zTrmwDmOjy4

They did the same thing with the Zimmerman 911 tape, editing it to make him sound like a racist.
Now, NBC News gets BUSTED again!!

This is the first time a President has used Executive Privilege to keep info. from Congress in about 40 years ago, since Richard Nixon used it back in the days of a little thing called WATERGATE.

Some of the president's most ardent entertainment industry supporters tell The Hollywood Reporter they are concerned that his increasing reliance on stars and celebrity contests could backfire.

Barack Obama's recent barrage of Hollywood campaign fund-raisers is drawing backlash from an unlikely place: Hollywood.

Some of the president's most ardent entertainment industry supporters quietly tell The Hollywood Reporter that while they realize he needs to deploy all of his weapons to compete with deep-pocketed Republican super PACs, they fear the increasing reliance on stars and celebrity contests could backfire with swing voters and mobilize the right.

Reaction was particularly strong to the $40,000-a-plate dinner co-hosted June 14 by Sarah Jessica Parker and Vogue editor Anna Wintour with guests including Meryl Streep, Aretha Franklin and Bravo's Andy Cohen. Critics say the tony, heavily promoted event­ -- Parker sent an e-mail to supporters promising the evening would be "fabulous," and Wintour posted a video online urging supporters to enter a lottery for two tickets -- risked creating the impression of an elitist, out-of-touch candidate in a period of ongoing distress and growing economic inequality.
"It's a mistake," a veteran Hollywood exec says flatly of the event, which the Drudge Report headlined "Checks in the City." The exec adds: "He's supposed to be a man of the people, and he's hanging out with Anna Wintour? Is he trying to turn the election into a celebrity reality show?"

It just blows my mind how many people disregard, ignore, or twist what the right does to such an extent that they can actually BELIEVE it. I mean, Mikey's post that I commented on is the perfect example. Fox News said "no president has used executive privilege since Nixon" so they believe it.

David Maraniss has written a new biography of President Obama. Problem is, it turns out that his research contradicts much of what Obama wrote about in "Dreams From My Father". Which brings Investors Business Daily to ask "Is President Obama a Pathological Liar?"
The Obama Record: The most frightening aspect of this president may not be his radical ideology but his rank dishonesty in selling that ideology. Now he's been caught lying about family racism.

In "Dreams from My Father," his 1995 memoir, Obama used the story of his paternal grandfather's imprisonment and torture at the hands of British colonists in Kenya as an example of white cruelty. He claimed Hussein Onyango Obama was unjustly detained for six months before being released a crippled, lice-ridden "old man."

In fact, none of it is true, according to Washington Post editor and biographer David Maraniss, who traveled to Kenya to investigate the tale. His grandfather was not detained or beaten by his "white rulers," as Obama, writing as a 34-year-old lawyer, claimed.

This is only the latest example of a growing body of fabrications, embellishments and outright lies told by this president, who has a real and possibly pathological problem with the truth.

Stacked up, his whoppers would make even Bill Clinton blush. Here's a sampling:

Lie No. 1: Obama has repeatedly claimed his white grandfather, Stanley Dunham, "fought in Patton's army," when he was a clerk with no combat in WWII.

Lie No. 2: Obama claimed Dunham, a communist sympathizer, signed up for duty "the day after Pearl Harbor," when in fact he waited six months.

Lie No. 3: Obama claimed his father "fought when he got back to Kenya against tribalism and nepotism, but ultimately was blackballed from the government," when in fact he fought against capitalism and lost his job when he advocated communism.

Lie No. 4: Obama has claimed his late mother's health insurer refused "to pay for her treatment" for cancer while citing a "pre-existing condition," when Cigna paid all her hospital bills and never denied payment.

Lie No. 5: Obama claimed he and a black high school friend named "Ray" were ostracized in Honolulu, when in fact the friend, Keith Kakugawa, was half-Japanese, and neither of them experienced discrimination.

Lie No. 6: Obama claimed the father of his Indonesian stepfather was killed by Dutch soldiers while fighting for Indonesian independence, when in fact the story turns out to be "a concocted myth in almost all respects," Maraniss found.

Lie No. 7: Obama claimed his parents decided to marry in the excitement of the Selma civil-rights march of 1965 — and that he personally has "a claim on Selma" — when in fact they were married several years earlier.

Lie No. 8: Obama claimed his father got to study in the U.S. thanks to JFK's efforts to bring "young Africans over to America," when in fact the Kenyan airlift his father participated in occurred in 1959 under Ike.

Lie No. 9: Obama submitted a phony bio to his book publicist claiming he was "born in Kenya."

Lie No. 10: Obama denied being a member of the socialist New Party, when a member roster of the Chicago chapter of the party lists him joining on Jan. 11, 1996.

Lie No. 11: Obama claimed he had only a passing acquaintance with Weather Underground terrorists Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn, when in fact they held a fundraiser for their Hyde Park neighbor in their living room, and years later, while Obama served in the U.S. Senate, hosted a barbecue for him in their backyard.

Lie No. 12: Obama claimed he never heard Rev. Jeremiah Wright spew anti-American invectives while sitting in his pews for 20 years, when in fact Obama was moved to tears hearing Wright condemn "white folks" and the U.S. for bombing other countries and even named his second book after the sermon.

Lie No. 13: Obama claimed he got in a "big fight" with old white flame Genevieve Cook, who after seeing a black play asked "why black people were so angry all the time," when in fact she never saw the play nor made the remark.

In both his autobiographies, Obama paints a false portrait of a still-racist America and West, where he, his friends and relatives are victimized by that racism. Conveniently, his remedy is redistributive justice through bigger government.

I wonder why we didn't know any of this 4 years ago. Perhaps if Obama had been former governor of Alaska the press might have been more interested in his story. Who knows, they may have even been tempted to dumpster dive to find some info. on him.

Someone once sent me this bit about trolls. It seems apt.

An Internet troll is a person who takes pleasure in sowing discord on the Internet, an individual who enjoys creating conflict. He or she creates and fuels arguments that upset other members of the online community. Their aim is to provoke biased others to take up their cause. The overarching goal is to damage people, entities, or ideas with which the Internet troll disagrees, or to provoke controversy.

Internet trolls have been described as "sad people, living their lonely lives vicariously through those they see as strong and successful. They typically possess a poorly developed set of social skills and have difficulty viewing their actions from the perspectives of their victims. They may be callous to the fact that they are harming real people, instead viewing Internet users as "digital abstractions". They may thus feel no remorse for harm they cause, and in fact may judge their own level of "success" by the amount of that harm. Most are impervious to rationale, mature arguments against their wares, and will protest that their right to free speech is being curtailed if ever there is an attempt to call them on their trolling.

Internet trolls are additionally interested in meeting their own attention-needs, which are often unmet in their real life, and may suffer from various psychological disorders. Whether trolling is a protected free speech activity or whether it amounts to libel and defamation depends upon the nature, content, and result of the statements by the troll.

Where to begin? Well, let's start with the most obvious:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bg-ofjXrXio

THe individual mandate is NOT a tax, the President insisted. Well, the SCOTUS says it IS a tax. So, Obama's signature legislation from his first term was based on a lie. If the penalty had been called a tax in the bill, it never would have passed the Congress. Even Democrats would not have supported it.

Then there is this:

Interesting but very simplistic way of explaining the "problem". Unfortunately, what the woman in the video fails to address is the much larger Constitutional issue. Simply because the federal government sees and identifies a "crisis" does NOT empower the federal government to sweep in and "solve" said crisis. The Constitution is a document which created a LIMITED and DEFINED federal government. The federal government is a function of the Constitution, the Constitution is NOT a function of the federal government. That is to say, the Constitution tells the federal government what it can and cannot do. The federal government does not define, rewrite, or interpret what the Constitution lets it do. It would be akin to a baseball game where one team has the power to "interpret" to rules of the game in their favor.

Posted by romantico 2012-06-30 15:45:41


Oh the irony. Here was the last thing Mikey said before he left on vacation.

"And this week promises to be BIG for Obama, with the possibility of his signature pieces of legislation being deemed unconstitutional. Of course, w ealready KNOW it is, but this SCOTUS has some judges who have comprehension issues."

So Mikey, you are not gloating. We all know if this went the way you and your 'idiot followers' would have liked, you would be rubbing it in,gloating, and having a grand ole' time.

YOU ARE WRONG! It IS Constitutional! Despite you disagreeing with the outcome IT IS CONSTITUTIONAL. Congress, The President, and NOW the SCOTUS says so! YOU ARE WRONG! Of course, you are a coward and will NEVER admit it,despite history,and the evidence. Nope, people like Mikey always think they know more than those who make the laws,study the laws, and actually went to school and argued cases defending the law.The Tea Baggers know it all.They feel betrayed not only by Obama winning this one but one of their own (CJ Roberts) betrayed them,so the sting is even more painful.

Like I said, you were a cruel son of a bitch gloating over Wisconsin and we are all LAUGHING at your stupidity and ignorance. OBAMA WON YOU TROLL! Romney trying to distance himself from Romneycare is gonna be his downfall and he knows it. The Democrats and Obama just have to remind all those independent voters that there would be no Obamacare if it were not for Mitt Romeny.

I just thought it was hilarious that you came back and started posting,as if nothing interesting happened this week when last week you got a 'woody' thinking about what would happen. You see Mikey, you and your party are arrogant. You think you know everything and then this happens.Moral of the story? Never gloat. It's childish,cruel, and makes you look like an idiot.Think what you will. However EVERYONE HERE knows you got your balls handed to you by Obama and John Roberts.You were all set to come here and post away but instead you got a big old surprise. LOL!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. You are a troll. A very dumb one. God help your students and God help your poor kids.

(if you really even have kids. I question if you really are even a school teacher. How can anyone this dumb be given the responsibility to teach children? Anything you say I automatically take as a lie.You have no credibility here. You cut and paste and can not think on your own. You run away from tough questions when they are asked and then come back changing the subject. You talk about engaging in debates,but you don;t know the definition of a debate. You change the rules and always win. You quote editorials and OP's as fact. You site sources like World Net Daily,Drudge Report,Newsmax,Newsbusters, and the Washington Times as legitimate news sources to back up your idiotic claims.You often make claims you can not back up and then there is the lying. You LIE constantly to make a point. You have to. Its the only way you can win.You will ignore something like Romneycare and things Romney has done and LIE rather then admitting them or dealing with them. We all know you,like most of Romeny's supporters,hate his guts. You know he is not the candidate you want. You just support him because he is the only one out there to go up against Obama. This says a lot about your character. You will compromise your own values out of spite. Your hate towards Obama and the Democrats is terrifying,but then again you and the Tea Party are nothing more than racists. So Mikey, anything you tell us about yourself is a lie, IMO.

You did not go on vacation with your kids last week. A LIE. You don't have kids. You are not a teacher. What did you do? WHO CARES? No one here does. You are a liar and a troll and the very fact that you waste SO MUCH TIME here desperately trying to convince us of your hateful backwards politics is a joke. Any kid with a father this obsessed and hateful is in trouble.This is the sign of a really $hitty father who needs help.)

Well, the Obama Campaign has done it again. Here is a campaign ad that thye made which was based almost entirely on an article in the Washington Post about Mitt Romney outsourcing jobs while at Bain Capital.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLyL4N2O_So&feature=player_embedded

THe Washington Post's own fact checker was very critical of the "facts" in that article and thus the ad itself. While the factchecker refused to give the article any "Pinocchios" since he would basically be giving them to his own newspaper, he did have this to say:

"The Obama campaign moved quickly to define what the article said, claiming that this transfer of jobs took place while Romney ran Bain. That’s not what the original article said.
Yet the campaign clearly seized on this report because their interpretation fit with a long-term “outsourcing” attack they have waged against Romney. One of their outsourcing ads before the article ran, in fact, earned Four Pinocchios. These new ads would not fare much better; there is little in the Post article that backs up the Obama campaign’s spin."

You can read the whole analysis here:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fact-checker/post/obamas-new-attacks-on-romney-and-outsourcing/2012/06/29/gJQA5FbbCW_blog.html#pagebreak

Factcheck.org also looked at the new ad. Their summary stated:

"Obama accuses Romney in a series of TV ads of being a “corporate raider” who “shipped jobs to China and Mexico,” asking if voters want to elect an “outsourcer in chief.” But some of the claims in the ads are untrue, and others are thinly supported."

You can read it here:

http://factcheck.org/2012/06/obamas-outsourcer-overreach/

Again, no rhetoric from me, I am just finding the facts behind Obama's lies and posting them here.

The Obama Campaign does not like it when Factcheck.org calls them out on their lies. They sent Factcheck (and other media organizations) a 6 page letter, explaining how their claim that a Pres. Romney would be an "Out-sourcer in Chief" was actually correct.
Of course, factcheck looked into their claims and had the following to say:

"The Obama campaign complains that we got a key fact wrong in our June 29 article, “Obama’s ‘Outsourcer’ Overreach.” We strongly disagree. We find the Obama campaign’s evidence to be weak or non-existent, and contrary to statements Romney has made on official disclosure forms under pain of federal prosecution.

The Obama complaint claims we erred in saying Mitt Romney gave up active management of Bain Capital in early 1999 to run the 2002 Winter Olympics, insisting we were then wrong in saying Romney was not responsible for shipping U.S. jobs overseas.

In fact, if the Obama campaign were correct, Romney would be guilty of a federal felony by certifying on federal financial disclosure forms that he left active management of Bain Capital in February 1999.

And after reviewing evidence cited by the Obama campaign, we reaffirm our conclusion that Romney left the helm of Bain Capital when he took a leave of absence in 1999 to run the Salt Lake City Organizing Committee for the 2002 Winter Olympics – as he has said repeatedly — and never returned to active management. The Obama campaign’s recent ads thus mislead when they point to investments made by Bain, as well as management decisions made by companies in which Bain invested, after that time.

The Obama campaign’s objections are contained in a six-page letter sent to us (and — without notice to us — to other news organizations as well). It cobbles together selective news snippets and irrelevant securities documents in an attempt to show that Romney was still running Bain Capital on a part-time basis while he was also running the Olympics committee.

In a nutshell, the Obama campaign is all wet on this point."

Yup!! You can read it all here:

So the Washington Post and FactCheck.org have already exposed the lies in Obama's claims regarding Mitt Romney outsourcing jobs while working at Bain Capital. In a nutshell, the Obama campaign's claims are not true.
But let's look at some other outsourcing stats. For example, here is some information regarding General Electric from CNN:

GE moving X-ray business to China. What message is sent to U.S.?
FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
Here is more evidence of the suicide mission this country is on: General Electric announced it's moving its 115-year-old X-ray business from Waukesha, Wisconsin to Beijing, China.
http://caffertyfile.blogs.cnn.com/2011/07/27/ge-moving-x-ray-business-to-china-what-message-is-sent-to-u-s/

Frp, CNBC:
GE has also recently closed more than 20 factories, shifted avionics and radiology businesses to China, and pushed for public policies that will allow them to continue that course.

http://www.cnbc.com/id/46398765

And from every Left-wingers favorite news source, Huffinton Post:
Let's look at GE's jobs record. You would have difficulty finding a company that has outsourced more jobs and closed more American factories than GE. While they have slashed their American workforce to fewer than 150,000, GE has dramatically expanded its global presence, now employing over 300,000 workers worldwide. Yes, GE has brought a trickle of jobs back to the U.S. over the past two years, but it still outsources more than it insources.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/scott-paul/should-ges-jeffrey-immelt_b_812132.html

Just a reminder for those who are ill-informed, the CEO of GE is one Jeffrey Immelt, who is also chairman of President Obama's Jobs Council!!

We've already shown you how the President plays with the numbers to make it look like he's created tons of so called "Green Jobs", but here is a refresher:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0IQ_vI9WZ0

But what about Obama's Green Jobs initiative, using stimulus money, that actually outsourced jobs to other countries?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YabnLHPYDW4&feature=related

Looks like we may already have an "OUTSOURCER in Chief"!!!

Uh-oh! It's the first Friday of the month. Another jobs report is due out today. BAD NEWS FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA!! (He only has 4 of these before election day. Will ANY of them be good news?)

The last three employment snapshots released by the Labor Department have been persistently weak, and marked a distinct slowdown from earlier in the year. In the latest report, the department said employers added a meager 80,000 jobs in June, leaving the unemployment rate unchanged at 8.2 percent. The number of jobs added in June was lower than expected, and rounded out a poor second quarter for 2012.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/post/the-june-jobs-report-and-president-obamas-summer-swoons/2012/07/05/gJQAo4rcQW_blog.html

Maybe the President will have a sit down with his "Jobs Czar", Jeffrey Immelt and convinve him to stop shipping GE factories overseas.

The liberal leaning Washington Post continues to call out President Obama's campaign for using faulty "facts" in an effort to attack Mitt Romney. This morning. Obama may have actually improved! Instead of the usual FOUR Pinocchios that Obama's lies have earned, this morning the Washington Post gave a tweet from Obama's Twitter page only THREE Pinocchios!!
The claim is that Mitt Romney pays a lower income tax than "many" Americans. The word "many" is important here as the campaign responded to the Post by actually DEFINING the word "many" for the Post's writer.
The TWEET:
“FACT: In 2010 and 2011, Romney paid less than 15% in taxes on $42.5 million in income—much less than what many middle-class families pay.”
— Tweet by @BarackObama, July 3, 2012

The Washington Post gives that Tweet 3 Pinocchios.
"The Obama campaign’s tweet relies on a very slippery “fact.”
Romney, by receiving much of his income in capital gains and dividends and giving millions of dollars to charity, is certainly able to keep his effective tax rate relatively low, especially compared to a wealthy person who earns much of his or her income in salary. But, even so, Romney still pays an effective tax rate that is higher than the tax rate paid by most Americans."

Ok, now they are getting delusional!

Obama Administration Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood is claiming that, were it not for Obama's electric car inititiative, certain manufacturers would not be testing the waters with hybrids. LaHood specifically mentions the Lexus RX 400h:
"I dont think the car manufacturers would be manufacturing the cars they are manufacturing today as hybrids, if it werent for what the president did in signing the executive order and what Lisa and I have done over the last three and half years about developing C.A.F.E. (Corporate Average Fuel Economy) standards for automobiles and light trucks that will get 54.4 miles per gallon by 2025."

I think we jump started the ability," said LaHood. "When you see now a Lexus hybrid, no one would have ever predicted that 2 years ago. Every car manufacturer is getting into hybrid. I think we jump started those opportunities."

The Lexus RX 400h premiered in 2004, a full 4 years before Obama became President!

It was widely reported that pre-orders for the Lexus RX 400h SUV were high, and the vehicle was widely available for sale in 2005. The company made its first hybrid sedan, the GS 450h, available in 2006.

I told you we alread have an "Outsourcer in Cheif"!
From THE WASHINGTON POST

Obama’s record on outsourcing draws criticism from the left

By Tom Hamburger, Carol D. Leonnig and Zachary A. Goldfarb, Published: July 9

Barack Obama promised voters four years ago that he would work to slow the outflow of American jobs to other countries, proposing to revamp a federal tax code that encourages companies to maintain overseas operations.

Obama as president has continued to call for rewriting the rules that allow U.S. corporations to avoid paying taxes for a time on income generated overseas.

But the broad tax changes have not happened.

While White House officials say they have been waiting on Congress to act, Obamas critics, primarily on the political left, say he has repeatedly failed in other ways to protect American jobs from being moved overseas. They point to a range of actions they say he should have taken: confronting China, reining in unfettered trade and reworking a U.S. visa program that critics say ends up sending high-tech jobs abroad.

The Obama Campaign desperately grasped at a Boston Globe article that seemed to backup their claims that Romney stayed on at Bain Capital long after he had left the firm to run the Olympics.

Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter laid out the issue as the Obama team sees it: “Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony."

"Or," she said, "he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments,” including layoffs and the outsourcing of jobs."

But unfortunately for the Obama Campaign, the Boston Globe's story collapsed within 24 hours. FACTS tend to have that effect. The Globe's accusations were similar to those made in an article from MOTHER JONES last week. Of course, most of us are smart enough to not take anything from MJ seriously. Too bad the Obama campaign is not as smart as the rest of us:

FORTUNE -- Mitt Romney did not manage Bain Capital's investments after leaving to run the Salt Lake City Olympic Games, according to confidential firm documents obtained by Fortune.
The timing of Romney's departure from Bain became a lightning rod earlier today, when The Boston Globe published an article suggesting that Romney remained actively involved with the firm longer than he and his campaign have claimed. The sourcing is largely SEC documents that list Romney as Bain Capital's CEO and sole shareholder through 2002 -- or three years after Romney officially left to run the Salt Lake City Olympic Games.
These claims are very similar to ones made last week by David Corn in Mother Jones, which we disputed at the time.
Now Fortune has obtained new evidence that supports Romney's version of events.

The Washington Post has weighed in on the whole "Romney is a Felon Because He Worked at Bain Even When He Said He Left" story.
Again, Obama is improving in his lying, getting THREE Pinocchios instead of the usual four.

"The Obama campaign has raised a very serious charge of potential criminal behavior. Does it have much credibility?"

"The Obama campaign is blowing smoke here.We realize that Bauer gets to the word criminal by mentioning investigation, but that distinction might be lost on most listeners.

Meanwhile, the weight of evidence suggests that Romney did in fact end active management of Bain in 1999. He stated that in a federal disclosure form he signed, under threat of criminal penalties. He said he was a former employee in a state disclosure form. A state commission concluded 10 years ago that he did, indeed, leave Bain in 1999. Investors in Bain funds were told he was not part of the management team.

The SEC documents, especially the ones Romney signed, do raise some questions. One can certainly argue that because Romney did not fully extricate himself from Bain till after his Olympic sojourn ended, he should bear some responsibility for what happened in that period. But that is an entirely different matter than suggesting that he is a potential criminal. It is more of a PR problem, which the Obama campaign is trying to exploit to build a larger case that Romney is secretive.

We were tempted to award this claim Four Pinocchios, but the documents with his signature leave some room for inquiry.

Still, if the Obama campaign wants to put its money where its mouth is, it should immediately lodge a complaint about Romneys financial disclosure form, filed just last year, rather than try to mislead people about potential violations in relatively unimportant SEC documents."

And now, Factcheck.org has come to the same conclusion that every other REPUTABLE media outlet has come to (sorry Mother Jones, MSNBC, Huffington Post, Daily Kos, Boston Globe, and all those other left-wing looney faux "news" sites).

ABC News, Fortune Magazine, CNN. Columbia Journalism Review, and of course, The Washington Post have all given the Obama Campaign a stern finger-wagging and an "Uh-uh, uh" for posting things that they have absolutely NO EVIDENCE to support.

Factcheck states: "Nothing we’ve seen directly contradicts Romney’s statements — which he has certified as true under pain of federal prosecution — that he “has not had any active role” with Bain or “been involved in the operations” of Bain since then.

And we wish to note, we’re not alone in this judgement. Others include:

*Fortune’s Dan Primack — who covers Wall Street “deals and dealmakers” — addressed the Mother Jones reporting in a July 2 article that came to the same conclusion we do. Primack’s more recent reporting we’ve already noted.

*The Washington Post‘s Fact Checker, Glenn Kessler, rebutted the Boston Globe story in a July 12 piece. “Just because you are listed as an owner of shares does not mean you have a managerial role,” Kessler writes. We agree.

*Before the Globe story broke, the Columbia Journalism Review’s Brendan Nyhan stated: “[T]he specific cases cited by the Obama campaign largely concern actions taken by those companies during a period in which Romney was not making operational decisions at the firm. Journalists must be clear about this distinction.”

*After the Globe story, CJR’s Greg Marx wrote “there’s less new in the Globe article than the attention it has drawn suggests.”

ABC News’ Devin Dwyer reported July 12, after the Globe‘s story appeared: “Team Obama does not provide any specific evidence to back up claims that Romney was actively managing Bain between 1999 and 2002.”

Singing is the only sound in the Obama campaign’s latest attack ad, except for the president saying he approved the message.

The new TV advertisement again levels charges of outsourcing – a theme that has triggered accusations of lying from both sides in the last few days.

It features Mitt Romney singing the patriotic anthem “America the Beautiful” – a habit of his at campaign events during the GOP primary season.

As the Republican presidential candidate’s voice echoes – “Oh, beautiful, for spacious skies, for amber waves of grain” – words pop up on screen slamming him on the same controversial outsourcing charges that have been under fire for weeks.

Except for the statements about Romney’s bank accounts, the other claims in the Obama ad have been repeatedly debunked by nonpartisan factcheckers

Did I hear someone say "outsourcing"??

"The luxury carmaker Fisker Automotive continues to signal it could ditch plans to build its next generation hybrid electric vehicle in the United States, despite the nearly $200 million in Obama administration loan money it has already received."

Uhh, they are already building the car....IN FINLAND!!
http://abcnews.go.com/Blotter/fisker-build-electric-cars-us/story?id=16458585#.T_7V-vUvONo

And there is MORE:
"If Romney really wanted a juicy example of outsourcing, he would have to look no further than the president's jobs council.

Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness, 26 business leaders assembled by the president for job-spurring ideas, includes representatives of several companies that have used outsourcing, fueling job creation abroad and job losses in the U.S. Shipping work to low-cost overseas labor markets has been a trend in American manufacturing for decades. The White House has a plan to curb outsourcing, but companies represented on the jobs council reveal just how pervasive the practice is.

Theres General Electric, whose CEO Jeffrey Immelt has served as chair of the advisory board since January 2011. Since Immelt took over GE in 2001, the company has lost 37,000 American jobs, and added 25,000 jobs overseas, according to filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/12/obama-jobs-council-outsourcing_n_1666443.html

AND the number 1 outsourcing company according to GLOBAL OUTSOURCING: Accenture.
Obamas second largest fundraiser is John Rogers, the CEO of investment giant Ariel Capital Management. He has raised more than $1.5 million for Obamas reelection campaign. Bully for him, except for one thing: Ariel Capital Management owns a $48.6 million stake in Accenture, America's NUMBER ONE outsourcer!!

Time for Mitt Romney to take off the kid gloves, stop playing defense and start playing offense!
Obama wants to talk about outsourcing. Ok, then, slap him with it. Here's an example: "Obama has outsourced our credit to the Chinese, he has outsourced our energy to Saudi Arabia, he has outsourced NASA to the Russians (H/T Jim Geraghty, NRO), and he has outsourced our foreign policy to the United Nations."

But don't stop there. Even better, start hitting Obama for the actual consequences of his reign. Try this: "If your high school or college age son or daughter cannot find a job this summer, thank Obama; if your senior citizen dad or mom has to work a part-time job to make ends meet, thank Obama; if your spouse lost his or her job in the last 3 1/2 years, thank Obama; if you lost your job and, as a consequence, your family lost its health care, thank Obama." And say it, over and over again.

And you should add: "The problem is that Obama doesn't know what he doesn't know, but thinks he knows everything. He is the most incompetent and ideologically confused president in our life-time. The reason why the economy is not growing, jobs are not being created, businesses are closing, and families are losing their homes and health care is because Obama raises taxes when he should lower them, he issues regulations when he should freeze them, and he trash-mouths American industries when he should be promoting them here and abroad."

You should also bring back the crucially important issue of our nation debt. For example: "By the end of this year, Obama will have added nearly $6.5 trillion to the nation debt, and that doesn't include the trillions in new spending from Obamacare. Obama likes to whine about the economy he inherited from Presidents Clinton and Bush. Can you imagine the state of the economy I will be inheriting from Obama? Even worse, can you imagine the massive debt your family will be inheriting from Obama? The world has never seen anything like it."

And I think a good label for Obama would be -- "Obama, incompetent and reckless."

Let's get on with it.

Did someone say "felon"????

Now that the increasingly erratic and desperately sleazy Obama campaign has decided to cavalierly throw around the word “felony” when it comes to pushing a campaign of lies surrounding Mitt Romney and Bain Capital, this seems like a good time to jump in the wayback machine for a look at the actual convicted felons, criminals, and dubious characters that have been associated with Barack Obama’s political life.

Starting with…

1. Former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich: Sentenced to 14 years in prison for political corruption.

NBC Chicago:

President Barack Obama's chief of staff, then a congressman in Illinois, apparently attempted to trade favors with embattled Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich while he was in office, according to newly disclosed e-mails obtained by The Associated Press.

Emanuel agreed to sign a letter to the Chicago Tribune supporting Blagojevich in the face of a scathing editorial by the newspaper that ridiculed the governor for self-promotion. Within hours, Emanuel's own staff asked for a favor of its own: The release of a delayed $2 million grant to a school in his district.

http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/Rahm-Traded-Favors-with-Blago-Report-96812049.html

2. Tony Rezko: Sentenced to 10 and a half years for corruption and kickbacks.

Politico:

Rezko raised money for Obama when he ran for Illinois senator, but not during his presidential campaign, the AP noted.

Obama also involved Rezko in a house deal after he was elected to the U.S. Senate, a move he later called “a boneheaded mistake,” according to a 2008 report in ABC News.

Obama wanted to purchase a home that the seller had a specific condition on: the adjacent empty lot to the house had to be purchased at the same time, ABC News reported. In the house deal, Rezko’s wife paid the full asking price for that parcel, $625,000.

Obama shelled out $300,000 under the house’s asking price, paying $1.65 million, according to ABC News. Obama then purchased a part of Rezko’s lot for $104,500.

“It was a mistake to have been engaged with him at all in this or any other personal business dealing that would allow him, or anyone else, to believe he had done me a favor,” Obama told the Sun-Times at the time.

Obama said his connection to Rezko was “above board and legal.”

Rezko and others connected to him gave Obama’s 2004 Senate campaign more than $120,000, ABC News reported.

ABC News:

While Rezko's wife paid the full asking price for the land, Obama paid $300,000 under the asking price for the house. The house sold for $1,650,000 and the price Rezko's wife paid for the land was $625,000.

Obama denies there was anything unusual about the price disparity. He says the price on the house was dropped because it had been on the market for some time but that the price for the adjacent land remained high because there was another offer.

Obama then expanded his property by buying a strip of the Rezko land for $104,500, which the senator maintains was a fair market price.

Obama later told the Chicago Sun-Times, "It was a mistake to have been engaged with him at all in this or any other personal business dealing that would allow him, or anyone else, to believe he had done me a favor."

Obama had known Rezko long before the house deal, calling him a "friend."

An ABC News review of campaign records shows Rezko, and people connected to him, contributed more than $120,000 to Obama's 2004 campaign for the U.S. Senate, much of it at a time when Rezko was the target of an FBI investigation.

It's important to keep in mind that this was dutiful reporting from the media. Any attempts to turn this into the Bain-style narrative it deserved and still deserves to be has always been blunted by the media. This is the shadiest land deal involving a politician in my lifetime, and Obama got away with it legally and politically.

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/1111/68935.html

3. Courtney Dupree: Democratic fundraiser convicted of bank fraud.

Daily News:

Dupree, who attended the elite Wharton School of Business, was a rainmaker in Democratic circles.

In 2008, Dupree hosted a $1,000-a-ticket fund-raiser for Barack Obama at his Broad St. apartment that was attended by top aide Valerie Jarrett.
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/democratic-fundraiser-convicted-engineering-21-million-bank-fraud-scheme-article-1.998833

4. John Corzine: Top Obama fundraiser currently under FBI investigation. Obama's "Wall Street guy."

MSNBC:

Jon Corzine, now the center of an FBI investigation into the handling of hundreds of millions of dollars invested in his securities firm, was one of the leading Wall Street fundraisers for President Obama’s campaign and suggested to investors that he might take a top administration post if the president were re-elected.

His new legal troubles, sparked by the bankruptcy filing of his investment firm, MF Global, could complicate the president’s efforts to raise money from the financial community given Corzine’s central role in those efforts.

A recent list of top “bundlers” or elite fundraisers released by Obama’s campaign listed Corzine in the highest category -- reporting that he had raised more than $500,000 for the campaign. A substantial chunk of those funds were collected at a $35,800 per ticket fundraiser that Corzine hosted at his wife’s spacious Fifth Avenue apartment last April -- an event that was touted at the time as part of a concerted effort by the president’s campaign team to reach out to well-heeled Wall Street donors who had been alienated by some of his policies and previous public comments.

Star Ledger:

In a sign of his emerging role as a financial guru for Barack Obama, Gov. Jon Corzine Sunday unveiled the latest piece of the presidential candidate's plan to curb soaring oil prices.

The governor touted an Obama proposal that marked the latest clash between the Democrat and Republican opponent John McCain over energy policy, as voters rank the economy as their biggest concern heading into the November election.

In his plan, Obama calls for more regulation in oil markets by promising to close the so-called "Enron loophole" that exempts some energy trading from federal oversight. The rollout also provided a showcase for Corzine, the former Goldman Sachs CEO whom Obama referred to as "our Wall Street guy" at a meeting of Democratic governors in Chicago on Friday.

5. Bill Ayers: Unrepentant domestic terrorist. Early Obama backer. Fellow board-member of the Woods Foundation. 4th of July pal.

The former Weatherman, William Ayers, now holds the position of distinguished professor of education at the University of Illinois-Chicago. Although never convicted of any crime, he told the New York Times in September 2001, "I don't regret setting bombs...I feel we didn't do enough."

Both Obama and Ayers were members of the board of an anti-poverty group, the Woods Fund of Chicago, between 1999 and 2002. In addition, Ayers contributed $200 to Obama's re-election fund to the Illinois State Senate in April 2001. They lived within a few blocks of each other in the trendy Hyde Park section of Chicago, and moved in the same liberal-progressive circles.

According to an Obama spokesman, the two men first met in 1995, when Obama was tapped to chair the board of the newly formed Chicago Annenberg Challenge. Ayers had been instrumental in creating the organization, which was to dispense grants for projects that would improve Chicago’s schools.

There are other connections between Obama and Ayers: The same year the two men met through the Annenberg Challenge, Ayers hosted a meet-and-greet coffee for Obama, who was running for state Senate and who lived three blocks away from him. Obama and Ayers also were on the board of an antipoverty charity, the Woods Fund of Chicago, where their service overlapped from 2000 to 2002. And Ayers contributed $200 to Obama’s campaign for the Illinois state Senate on March 2, 2001.
A review of records of the schools project and interviews with a dozen people who know both men, suggest that Mr. Obama, 47, has played down his contacts with Mr. Ayers, 63.
Many have speculated that Ayers wrote Obama's first book DREAMS FROM MY FATHER. This speculation has been fueled by comparisons of the book with Ayers' other writings and the fact that Ayers has, on two separate occasions, stated that he wrote the book.

On tonight's O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly commends himself for uncovering the truth about the Romney/Bain controversy. The question he asks is, "How can Obama Attack Romney for Outsourcing when he did the exact same thing?"

“The Obama administration has continued to make billions of taxpayer dollars available to the General Electric corporation, mostly through loans but there were some grants for green energy projects. GE employs about 300,000 people. Fewer than half – 131,000 — are working in the USA. Let me repeat, less than half of GE’s workforce are employed in America.”

It sounds as if O'Reilly may have been following this thread, as I posted a similar "revelation" about a week ago!

Looks like Pres. Obama has some splaining to do!

Washington Examiner - President Obama has accused Mitt Romney of raking in profits from investing in companies that ship American jobs overseas, but according to his most recent financial disclosure, he and First Lady Michelle Obama have hundreds of thousands of dollars in a mutual fund that has large holdings in corporations that outsource jobs.

“(Romney) invested in companies that have been called ‘pioneers’ of outsourcing,” Obama said at a Saturday campaign event in Glen Allen, Va. “I don’t want a pioneer in outsourcing. I want some insourcing.”

But Obama’s own portfolio shows a willingness to invest in American corporations that have shifted employment overseas.

In his most recent financial disclosure from 2011, Obama and his wife reported having between $200,000 and $450,000 in the Vanguard 500 Index Fund, which invests in the largest U.S. corporations. According to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, as of Sept. 30, 2011, the fund’s biggest holding was 8,272,039 shares of Apple Inc., then valued at $3.2 billion.

The New York Times reported in January:

Not long ago, Apple boasted that its products were made in America. Today, few are. Almost all of the 70 million iPhones, 30 million iPads and 59 million other products Apple sold last year were manufactured overseas….

“Apple’s an example of why it’s so hard to create middle-class jobs in the U.S. now,” said Jared Bernstein, who until last year was an economic adviser to the White House.

“If it’s the pinnacle of capitalism, we should be worried.”

The mutual fund that the Obamas have invested in also held 94,582,281 million shares of General Electric, valued at $1.4 billion, as of the SEC filing. The multinational conglomorate has a long history of outsourcing – according to a new book cited by the New York Times, in 1989, “G.E. became the first U.S. company to outsource software work to India.” Obama also has close ties to GE’s CEO, Jeffrey Immelt, who was appointed as chairman of his outside panel of economic advisers last year.

In addition to Apple and GE, the Obamas’ fund listed 10,655,961 shares of International Business Machines, valued at $1.9 billion. As the Wall Street Journal reported in 2009, “The technology giant has been steadily building its work force in India and other locations while reducing the number of workers based in the U.S. Foreign workers accounted for 71% of Big Blue’s nearly 400,000 employees at the start of the year, up from about 65% in 2006.”

The point in this is not to say outsourcing is wrong. Corporations are supposed to maximize profits for shareholders. But Obama’s own portfolio shows that despite his heated rhetoric, he makes investment decisions without regard to whether companies are outsourcing.

We know Obama's father and mother were both Communists. And now Frank Marshall Davis is mentioned 22 times in Obama's book Dreams from My Father as Obama's "mentor".
Here is his bio:

Frank Marshall Davis (1905-1987) was a Communist Party USA (CPUSA) propagandist in Chicago and Hawaii, as well as a writer and poet. The FBI had Davis under investigation or surveillance for 19 years, compiling a 600-page FBI file. He was on the FBI's 'Security Index A', meaning he would be arrested in the event of national emergency.

In 1930's Chicago, CPUSA recruited journalists to help spread Soviet influence in American public opinion. Frank Marshall Davis was one of them. A graduate of Kansas State Journalism School, Frank Marshall Davis joined the Communist Party and began writing for The Chicago Star. He was a colleague of journalist Vernon Jarrett, father-in-law of Obama confidant Valerie Jarrett. Davis also taught at Chicago's Abraham Lincoln School, a Communist run training school run by CPUSA. Davis authored three major volumes of poetry, and later an autobiographical sex novel under a pseudonym.

In 1948, the Kremlin ordered CPUSA to facilitate a US withdrawal from the Hawaii as US naval forces were considered an obstacle to Soviet expansion in Asia. CPUSA assigned Frank Marshall Davis to Honolulu where he began writing for the Communist Newspaper, the Honolulu Record in 1948. In his columns, Davis flawlessly mirrored official Soviet propaganda - he blamed American capitalism for starting World War II, denounced the Marshall Plan, preached wealth redistribution, nationalization of industry and government healthcare, while bashing Wall Street. Davis also helped organize the Communist controlled ILWU (union) in a failed effort to take over the Hawaiian government in 1949. The Hawaii NAACP chapter complained to its national office, "Comrade Frank Marshall Davis suddenly appeared on the scene to propagandize the membership with the purpose of converting it into a front for the Stalinist line." In 1956, Davis was subpoenaed by the Senate Subcommittee on Un-American Activities and pleaded the fifth. Dreams from My Real Father makes the case that on August 4, 1961, Frank Marshall Davis became the father of the future 44th President of the United States and indoctrinated him with a Marxist ideology during his formative years.

Okay--let's stipulate to the fact that President Obama knows and is related to Communists.

What, exactly, does that tell us? I personally know and/or am related to right-wing Republicans and moderate Democrats as well as members of the Communist, Libertarian, Green, Pot, and Pansexual Peace parties as well as some Wiccans, Warlocks and Radical Faeries.

Thats the nations second largest private child care provider, and theyre going to implement this checklist at nearly 600 child care centers across the country," she said. "So we already have commitments that are going to affect hundreds of thousands of children today."

The Boston Globe recently reported that Bright Horizons was founded in a Cambridge kitchen and was financially backed by "Bain Capital, then led by Mitt Romney."

Obamas Attacks Having Little Effect

Weeks of vicious attacks by the Obama campaign assailing Mitt Romneys character and making questionable charges about his stewardship of Bain Capital have yielded the following result: the latest national poll, released by the New York Times, shows Romney with a slight edge.

http://www.businessinsider.com/romney-obama-poll-cbs-new-york-times-mitt-barack-election-2012-7

The key: Romney has a big edge on handling the economy and jobs  he leads there 49 percent to 41 percent.

With little record to run on, an economy mired in slow growth, and unemployment stuck above eight percent, the Obama team must face the possibility that it is unloading some of its only rhetorical ammunition without result. And after burning through $100 million of his money on campaign ads, Obama has failed to establish a lead over his rival.


One more thing about the NY Times CBS Poll, 32% of those polled identified themselves as Democrats and only 25% identified themselvs as Republican.

Well, after taking a short respite so the President could address the tragedy in CO, we are back in the swing of things!

From THE WASHINGTON TIMES:
Nearly one in 10 employers to drop health coverage

"About one in 10 employers plan to drop health coverage when key provisions of the new health care law kick in less than two years from now, according to a survey to be released Tuesday by the consulting company Deloitte.

Nine percent of companies said they expect to stop offering coverage to their workers in the next one to three years, the Wall Street Journal reported. Around 81 percent said they would continue providing benefits and 10 percent said they weren't sure.

The companies, though, said a lot will depend on how future provisions of the law unfold, since most of the key parts are scheduled to take effect in 2014. One in three respondents said they could stop offering coverage if the law requires them to provide more generous benefits than they do now, if a tax on high-cost plans takes effect in 2018 as scheduled or if they decide it would be cheaper for them to pay the penalty for not providing insurance.

While small business don't face fines for failing to offer coverage, companies with 50 or more full time employees face a penalty starting at $2,000 per worker."

http://www.washingtontimes.com/blog/inside-politics/2012/jul/24/nearly-one-10-employers-drop-health-coverage/

Hmmmm, should I pay $8,000 a year to cover employee A, or should I just pay a $2,000 fine for employee A and let them get the government's program? Hmmmm, so hard to decide.........

Hmmmm, should I hire a 50th full time employee and have this huge government regulation kick-in, or should I just stay at 49 employees and make them all work a little more? Hmmmmmm, so hard to decide....

Let's face it, Obamacare, like ALL of Pres. Obama's policies, is a JOB KILLER!

Report: Obamacare penalty regressive, will cost most uninsured at least $1,000

The penalty imposed by the Affordable Care Act on citizens who elect not to purchase health insurance will be at least $1,000 for most people, and more than $12,000 for high-income earners, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Tax Foundation.

We can see that this is a big tax, particularly on the poor, writes the Tax Foundations William McBride. Higher income families generally pay a higher amount, but actually a smaller percent of their income, making this a regressive tax.

For example, the penalty for a family of four earning $20,000 will be $2,085, more than 10 percent of its income, according to the Tax Foundation  whereas a family of four making $100,000 will only have two percent of its income taken away by the government.

Cook Medical Inc., a Bloomington, Ind.-based company that makes a variety of medical devices, told the Indianapolis Business Journal that the federal tax will cost it between $20 million and $30 million annually.
That's enough to force the company to abandon plans to build five plants over the next five years, said Pete Yonkman, Cook's executive vice president of strategic business unit.

WH Communications director Dan Pfeiffer called out Charles Krauthammer because "Krauthammer today recycles the false rumor that POTUS gave back the bust of Winston Churchill."
Here's what Pfeiffer wrote: "Lately, there’s been a rumor swirling around about the current location of the bust of Winston Churchill. Some have claimed that President Obama removed the bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office and sent it back to the British Embassy.

Now, normally we wouldn’t address a rumor that’s so patently false, but just this morning the Washington Post’s Charles Krauthammer repeated this ridiculous claim in his column. He said President Obama “started his Presidency by returning to the British Embassy the bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office.”

This is 100% false. The bust still in the White House (sic). In the Residence. Outside the Treaty Room."

Did you say 100% false, Dan?? Uh, you might want to AMMEND that a bit!

When you’re going to write a “fact check” article or blog post, you might want to, you know, check your facts. We know that this is usually an extremely difficult task for the Obama White House.

Here is what MEDIA MATTERS (yes, that's right MEDIA MATTERS!! LOL!!) had to say about the Churchill bust: 'A British Embassy spokesman said: “The bust of Sir Winston Churchill by Sir Jacob Epstein was uniquely lent to a foreign head of state, President George W Bush, from the Government Art Collection in the wake of 9/11 as a signal of the strong transatlantic relationship.

“It was lent for the first term of office of President Bush. When the President was elected for his second and final term, the loan was extended until January 2009.

“The new President has decided not to continue this loan and the bust has now been returned. It is on display at the Ambassador’s Residence.“"

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2011/08/23/ny-post-runs-becks-churchill-bust-conspiracy-as/182393

WHY would I post something from an organization of ill repute like MEDIA MATTERS??? I find it comical that the WH Communications director is contradicting a web site that is nothing but a shill for the president and the left-wing. WOOPS!!
But of course I would NEVER post anything from MM without following it up with support from more reputable organizations. So, here is an article from UK's THE TELEGRAPH:

Barack Obama sends bust of Winston Churchill on its way back to Britain
Barack Obama has sent Sir Winston Churchill packing and pulse rates soaring among anxious British diplomats.

A bust of the former prime minister once voted the greatest Briton in history, which was loaned to George W Bush from the Government's art collection after the September 11 attacks, has now been formally handed back.
The bronze by Sir Jacob Epstein, worth hundreds of thousands of pounds if it were ever sold on the open market, enjoyed pride of place in the Oval Office during President Bush's tenure.
But when British officials offered to let Mr Obama to hang onto the bust for a further four years, the White House said: "Thanks, but no thanks."
Diplomats were at first reluctant to discuss the whereabouts of the Churchill bronze, after its ejection from the seat of American power. But the British Embassy in Washington has now confirmed that it sits in the palatial residence of ambassador Sir Nigel Sheinwald, just down the road from Vice President Joe Biden's official residence.

So, will there be an APOLOGY from the White House to Charles Krauthammer?

Earlier today, Dan Pfeiffer, WH Communications Director, issued an apology to Charles Krauthammer.

"Yesterday following his column, I sent the following email to Charles Krauthammer. Charles asked that I make the email public and I have agreed.

Charles,

I take your criticism seriously and you are correct that you are owed an apology. There was clearly an internal confusion about the two busts and there was no intention to deceive. I clearly overshot the runway in my post. The point I was trying to make  under the belief that the Bust in the residence was the one previously in the Oval Office-- was that this oft repeated talking point about the bust being a symbol of President Obamas failure to appreciate the special relationship is false. The bust that was returned was returned as a matter of course with all the other artwork that had been loaned to President Bush for display in his Oval Office and not something that President Obama or his Administration chose to do. I still think this is an important point and one I wish I had communicated better.

A better understanding of the facts on my part and a couple of deep breaths at the outset would have prevented this situation. Having said all that, barring a miracle comeback from the Phillies I would like to see the Nats win a world series even if it comes after my apology

Thanks,

Dan Pfeiffer"

Unfortunately for President Obama, his "You didn't build that" speech is NOT going away. And the Obama campaign is a little nervous about its staying power.


From THE WALL STREET JOURNAL:

"What's the difference between a calm and cool Barack Obama, and a rattled and worried Barack Obama? Four words, it turns out.

"You didn't build that" is swelling to such heights that it has the president somewhere unprecedented: on defense. Mr. Obama has felt compelled—for the first time in this campaign—to cut an ad in which he directly responds to the criticisms of his now-infamous speech, complaining his opponents took his words "out of context."

That ad follows two separate ones from his campaign attempting damage control. His campaign appearances are now about backpedaling and proclaiming his love for small business. And the Democratic National Committee produced its own panicked memo, which vowed to "turn the page" on Mr. Romney's "out of context . . . BS"—thereby acknowledging that Chicago has lost control of the message."

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390443931404577551344018773450.html

Unfortunately for the Prez, we have the video of his speech so we KNOW what he said and we KNOW it was NOT taken out of context. We also have other evidence, from Obama's comments to Joe the Plumber 4 years ago about redistributing wealth, the the Obama campaign's own website, where the animated story of Julia emphasizes the government's role in her success, that supports his "You didn't built that" speech's theme

Uh-oh!! Obama's Deputy Campaign Manager, Stephanie Cutter (you remember, the one who called Mitt Romney a "felon")has cancelled her scheduled appearance on ABC's THIS WEEK. Could it be because she got caught in a HUGE lie this week?? She claimed to be unfamiliar with Joe Soptic's story of his wife dying at the hands of Mitt Romney.

Said Cutter on CNN:

I dont know the facts about when Mr. Soptics wife got sick or the facts about his health insurance.

But then THIS turned up:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tfOoZl0tHvQ&feature=player_embedded

In the audio from a few months ago, Joe Soptic is heard telling Miss Cutter all about his wife's illness.
So, she is caught in a lie. No big deal, right. The folks in the Obama campaign lie ALL THE TIME. Big whoop!

Oh, but there is more. If Miss Cutter and the Obama campaign knew about this story, did they then pursue Mr. Soptic to tell his story on the ad? The ad was paid for by an Obama superpac. The folks at the Obama campaign are not allowed to work with people running their superpac. It is against the law. In fact it is a FELONY!!!

Holy cow!! This week's cover story on NEWSWEEK says "Hit the Road Barack: Why America Needs a New President"

http://communities.washingtontimes.com/neighborhood/middle-class-guy/2012/aug/20/newsweek-cover-obama-hit-road-barack/

“Why does Paul Ryan scare the president so much? Because Obama has broken his promises, and it’s clear that the GOP ticket’s path to prosperity is our only hope…
Yet the question confronting the country nearly four years later is not who was the better candidate four years ago. It is whether the winner has delivered on his promises. And the sad truth is that he has not…
…We are becoming the 50–50 nation—half of us paying the taxes, the other half receiving the benefits.” (Niall Ferguson/Newsweek)
CHICAGO, August 21, 2012— Newsweek columnist and Harvard professor, Niall Ferguson wrote a damning editorial about President Obama. It is this week’s cover story. Since its release Monday, the magazine cover created controversy and raised hackles. It generated heated debate and discussion.
That is what good journalism is supposed to do.

Says P Krugman: "There are multiple errors and misrepresentations in Niall Ferguson’s cover story in Newsweek — I guess they don’t do fact-checking — but this is the one that jumped out at me. Ferguson says:
"The president pledged that health-care reform would not add a cent to the deficit. But the CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation now estimate that the insurance-coverage provisions of the ACA will have a net cost of close to $1.2 trillion over the 2012–22 period."

Readers are no doubt meant to interpret this as saying that CBO found that the Act will increase the deficit. But anyone who actually read, or even skimmed, the CBO report (pdf) knows that it found that the ACA would reduce, not increase, the deficit — because the insurance subsidies were fully paid for. "

Are there SERIOUSLY people out there who are stupid enough to BELIEVE that crap?? A HUGE new government entitlement is NOT going to add to the deficit because, like ALL government programs, it is going to be a model of efficiency.
RIGHT!!

I love how folks on the left parade out this complete MORON Krugman, who has been proven wrong time after time after time, but because he won a Nobel Prize, that somehow lends him credibility! Watch this clip of him on ABC's THIS WEEK:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELudnlo3Vl4&feature=player_embedded

Here he proves that he doesn't know the distinction between tax payer's dollars confiscated by the federal government and investors dollars willingly invested in a firm. The man is a complete intellectual lightweight who won a nobel prize for the same reason Jimmy Carter, Al Gore and Barack Obama did; he is shill for the progressive movement.
Every ime I see Krugman on TV I wonder how he dressed himself.

President Obama is 4 for 4; four years of deficits over $1 trillion.
Three key messages emerge from the updated budget outlook released today by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO)[1]:
1.For the fourth year in a row, the federal government in 2012 will run a budget deficit exceeding $1 trillion;
2.The nations fiscal and economic challenges going forward remain both daunting and unaddressed, with continued record spending and deficits and high unemployment; and
3.Another recession threatens in 2013 if Congress fails to defuse Taxmageddon and the fiscal cliff.

Still leading from behind:

President Barack Obama was today forced to announce he will fly to storm-hit Louisiana on Monday – hours after Mitt Romney beat him to the punch by deciding to head there this afternoon.
After it emerged that Obama was still taking time to fit in a campaign stop in Cleveland, Ohio, before checking out how clean-up operations are proceeding in the Bayou state, the Obama campaign abruptly cancelled that event, though he will still hold a rally in Toledo, Ohio before heading south.
But the Republican presidential candidate touched down in the Hurricane ravaged state this afternoon - a full three days before Obama - touring the flooded areas around Lafitte and showing his support for local residents.

Mitt Romney told a Louisiana resident, who had lost her home to flooding, "go home and call 211."

Associated Presss:
----------
Romney and Jindal spent close to an hour meeting with first responders and local officials. Romney shook hands with National Guardsmen outside the U.S. Post Office and talked with a local resident, Jodie Chiarello, 42, who lost her home in Isaac's flooding.

"He just told me to, um, there's assistance out there," Chiarello said of her conversation with Romney. "He said, go home and call 211." That's a public service number offered in many states.

General Motors' executive shake-up points to struggles at carmaker
The firing of GM's marketing chief is the latest in a flurry of management changes as the automaker looks to stem falling U.S. market share and losses in Europe.

By Jerry Hirsch, Los Angeles Times
July 31, 2012
After recovering to become the world's largest seller of automobiles last year, General Motors Co. is once again struggling to maintain its top position in the auto industry.

On Sunday, GM abruptly fired its top marketing chief, the latest in a flurry of management shake-ups as the automaker looks to stem declining market share in the U.S. and losses in Europe. The automaker will report its second-quarter financial results Thursday.

GM lost its ranking as the top automaker to Toyota Motor Corp. during the first half of this year, and its stock has fallen 41% since the company's 2010 post-bankruptcy offering price.

Economic Fears Hurting Obama, Poll Indicates
By JIM RUTENBERG and MARJORIE CONNELLY
Published: July 18, 2012

Declining confidence in the nation’s economic prospects appears to be the most powerful force influencing voters as the presidential election gears up, undercutting key areas of support for President Obama and helping give his Republican challenger, Mitt Romney, an advantage on the question of who would better handle the nation’s economic challenges, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll.
Despite months of negative advertising from Mr. Obama and his Democratic allies seeking to further define Mr. Romney as out of touch with the middle class and representative of wealthy interests, the poll shows little evidence of any substantial nationwide shift in attitudes about Mr. Romney.
But with job growth tailing off since spring and the Federal Reserve chairman, Ben S. Bernanke, wondering aloud whether the labor market is “stuck in the mud,” the poll showed a significant shift in opinion about Mr. Obama’s handling of the economy, with 39 percent now saying they approved and 55 percent saying they disapproved.

OBAMA KILLED BIN LADEN. Spin it however you like THE FACT IS HE DID WHAT BUSH AND THE REPUBLICANS COULD NOT DO (idiot!)

HE SAVED GM. AGAIN, THOSE ARE THE FACTS. Mitt said let Detroit go bankrupt.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/22/mitt-romney-auto-bailout_n_1295343.html

It's funny how you are creating these extreme conditions in order to make your paper thin argument.

The morons on the right are so desperate they are trying to take away Obama's accomplishments. It really is pathetic. They have an excuse for EVERYTHING! Even most his critics recognize Obama saved Detroit.

ONLY ONE HERE FULL OF CRAP IS THE LIAR WHO CLAIMS TO BE A SCHOOL TEACHER.

Mikey, I will never let you get away with your lies. I will always counter them and follow you around with a shovel. FACT IS no teacher talks like you. Only a child HAS TO BE RIGHT every time. Only a child would ignore the facts.You are in the minority.EVERYONE HERE KNOWS You are desperate yet you are SO PATHETIC you really are trying to change people's minds here. What a fool. Just like you try and convince you are straight,a teacher,a parent, and so on. Really? All these anti Obama lies on a Broadway message board? You are the only one not laughing.

Mikey,like Paul Ryan and Willard would not know how to tell the truth if their life depended on it. Mikey see's how the GOP Bombed at the convention and how Paul Ryan has not done great in the polls and the other side is TERRIFIED! They have resorted to these sad embarrassing tactics in order to win. Won't work though.

How can anyone debate someone when they bring their own version of facts to the debate? Its like asking to debate someone on the civil war and them coming to the debate thinking the South won,the war started in 1901, and George Washington was president and Quincy Adams freed the slaves.They are certain they are right on the facts and won't believe anything anyone else says despite the evidence.They are set in their ways and this is history as they see it and know it.

How does one even attempt to argue with someone so out of touch and insane? This is Mikey and the Tea Baggers he represents. They ignore the facts,make up their own,live their lives by their own version of history and anyone who disagrees with them or shows them evidence contradicting them hates America or is buying in to the liberal media/agenda.This is Mikey, the moron who swears he is a school teacher.

LOL!! Like making a bear dance!!

President Obama's deputy national security advisor, John Brennan, confirmed that the death of bin Laden resulted from "a mosaic (of intelligence) appearing over time and by ... people who have been following bin Laden for many, many years."

"Enhanced interrogation techniques" -- The Washington Post's associate editor and foreign affairs columnist, David Ignatius, writes, "Some of the detainees (who gave information that led to bin Laden's location) were subjected to 'enhanced interrogation techniques,' the CIA's formal name for what is now widely viewed as torture."

Gitmo and secret prisons, aka "black sites" (now closed by Obama) -- "The revelation," writes The Associated Press, "that intelligence gleaned from the CIA's so-called black sites helped kill bin Laden was seen as vindication for many intelligence officials who have been repeatedly investigated and criticized for their involvement in a program that involved the harshest interrogation methods in U.S. history."

Rendition, the practice of moving a detainee to a country with more severe interrogation policies -- "Current and former U.S. officials," according to The Associated Press, "say that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, provided the nom de guerre of one of bin Laden's most trusted aides. The CIA got similar information from Mohammed's successor, Abu Faraj al-Libi. Both were subjected to harsh interrogation tactics inside CIA prisons in Poland and Romania."

Bush-Cheney "executive assassination ring" -- Navy SEAL Team Six is part of the Joint Special Operations Command. Two years ago, The New Yorker's Pulitzer prize-winning Hersh denounced the JSOC by calling it Bush-Cheney's "executive assassination ring": "It is a special wing of our special operations community that is set up independently. They do not report to anybody, except in the Bush-Cheney days ... they reported directly to the Cheney office. ... Congress has no oversight of it. It's an executive assassination ring, essentially. ... That's been going on, in the name of all of us."

Intel from Bush detainees -- "Shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks," writes the AP, "detainees in the CIA's secret prison network told interrogators about an important courier ... who was close to bin Laden. ... Then in 2004, top al-Qaida operative Hassan Ghul was captured in Iraq. ... It was a key break in the hunt for bin Laden's personal courier. 'Hassan Ghul was the linchpin,' a U.S. official said."

The initial threads of intelligence began surfacing in 2003 and came in the form of information about a trusted bin Laden courier, a senior U.S. official told Fox News on condition of anonymity. The information included an alias for the courier. Bin Laden had cut off all traditional lines of communication with his network by this time because the Al Qaeda leader knew the U.S. intelligence community was monitoring him. It was said that he also didn't even trust his most loyal men to know his whereabouts and instead communicated only through couriers.

WHO was President in 2003????

But it was four years later, in 2007, that terror suspects at the Guantanamo Bay military prison started giving up information that led to the identification of the key courier.

WHO was President in 2007???

Interesting video (wrong AGAIN, Romantico!). Bush is correct in stating that OBL had been marginalized and was either on the run or hiding out in some cave.
However, I am not sure what this has to do with my previous post. Please consider the following"

1. The death of OBL was connected to a courier who was very close to the man.

2. The existence of this courier came to light in 2003 using enhanced interrogation techniques.

3. The identity of this courier was revealed in 2007 using the same techniques.

4. The techniques used to gain intelligence regarding this courier were techniques that the Democratic Party and Barack Obama in particular, campaigned against.

I know there was a lot more to it than that, but the id of that courier was CRUCIAL to finding OBL, and much of the intelligence about him was acquired during the presidency of George W. Bush.
Don't just disagree with me.....

I and others here HAVE PROVEN YOU WRONG. MANY MANY TIMES! You ignore all facts that differ from your political views. In your mind 911 happened on Bill Clinton's watch, George Bush was the smartest and most well liked President ever, and and somehow it was Mitt Romney who killed Bin Laden. Reasoning with a lying insane liar like you is pointless.

I could give you video,numerous news stories from various news sites and you still would dismiss it. I have seen you do it before in the past.

You don't recognize facts or proof.You are a troll and a liar and everyone here will back me up on that.

However, history recognize Obama killing Bin Laden. He saved GM and many other accomplishments.Highlighting this drives you crazy just like the Joe Biden thread and the Obama greatest President ever thread did. It makes you foam at the mouth.

You can lie to yourself and rewrite history you nut but you can't change it here in the real world. You would never say the crazy SH(* you say in public without being laughed at.

A small sample of the things Obama has done. Deal with it Mikey,your lies don't hold up and you know it. So suck it troll!

Obama has overhauled the food safety system
Advanced women's rights in the work place
Ended Don't Ask, Don't Tell (DADT) in our military
Stopped defending DOMA in court.
Passed the Hate Crimes bill.
Appointed two pro-choice women to the Supreme Court.
Expanded access to medical care and provided subsidies for people who can't afford it.
Expanded the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
Fixed the preexisting conditions travesty [and rescissions] in health insurance.
Invested in clean energy.
Overhauled the credit card industry, making it much more consumer-friendly.
While Dodd-Frank bill was weak in many respects, it was still an extremely worthwhile start at re-regulating the financial sector.
He created a Elizabeth Warren's dream agency: The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
He's done a lot for veterans
He got help for people whose health was injured during the clean-up after the 9/11 attacks.

Obama gave the order to kill Bin Laden. Are you really that stupid? The answer is yes. Yes you are.

Ok, Romantico, so now you have changed your "Fact" from Obama KILLING OBL to now "giving the order" to kill OBL. Glad you realized your stupid mistake. You do that a lot when you get into one of your raving, raging, maniacal posts. But, like I said, those posts are VERY funny!

Moving on to my next point at proving you wrong and exposing you for the moron you are, your contention is that the discovery of OBL's courier had NOTHING to do with the eventual discovery of OBL's hideout and his being shot to death. CORRECT?
Despite ALL the evidence to the contrary regarding the events leading up to his discovery, you are saying that OBL's courier had nothing to do with this, CORRECT??

Funny how the Bush administration knew about the courier since 2003 and still were not able to find Bin Laden.
I guess Bush was telling the truth in the video from 2006. He really didn't give a crap where Bin Laden was. He had his illegal war so what did Bin Laden matter?

Mikey cherry picks the facts. Leaves OUT SOOOOOOOOOO MUCH! How convenient. This is how we know Mikey is not a teacher. Debate is more or less to educate, NOT TO PROVE YOURSELF RIGHT EVERY TIME! Mikey does not have the balls to admit he is wrong. I and others have admitted this in the past but Mikey is always right. What teacher would teach a student to ALWAYS BE RIGHT? Mikey makes his own rules so he always win (or so he thinks in that pea brain of his)

if the OBL raid had gone wrong Mikey,like the rest of the Repukes would be singing another tune.Goes to show how big of a risk it was. Thanks for pointing that out Mikey.

At least you admit you cut and paste. My theory is maybe if I keep repeating your errors it might sink in. NO RATIONAL PERSON CAN DEBATE PEOPLE LIKE YOU.

I HAVE BACKED UP MY STATEMENTS as well as others. MANY TIMES! You are just too stupid to pick up on it. Teacher my ass! (LOL)

He lies about having kids and being a teacher. he has not proven once in this entire mess of a thread that Obama has lied.He ignores facts and uses his own version of facts...........that are anything but facts.

Mikey wouldn't know the truth or a fact if it bit him on his ass.

Obama killed Bin Laden. DEAL WITH IT!

He Saved GM while ROmney wanted them to go bankrupt.

Obama has released his tax records,unlike Willard.

Obama is ahead in the polls and is looking more and more like the best candidate to the American people and Mikey and his 'people' are terrified. They resort to insane desperate pathetic laughable tactics that simply don't work.

Is that the word you used? Bozo? I had to look it up since no one under the age of 60 actually uses that term anymore.

That video is sooo ridiculous. The GOP should be very proud of the way they took advantage of that poor woman's grief.

If Obama had said it you may be able to point out an insensitivity. But he didn't. Yet the woman (standing in front of a Tea Party banner) repeatedly scolds Obama for the arrogance, never mentioning Clinton, the person who actually said the words.

What Clinton said is true. And, taken in context by a non-grieving, reasonable person, is not in any way an insensitive thing to say, since he's not referring to himself. He wasn't saying, "oh poor me and how I might have suffered." He's stating a fact. He's not saying Obama would have suffered MORE than the mothers of those soldiers. He's not discounting their suffering in any way.

Then she makes the leap to blame Obama for endorsing the ad, trying to transfer Clinton's words to him through the endorsement. Doesn't work that way. If Obama endorses an ad where a woman says she would never have an abortion, that doesn't mean he's saying he would never have an abortion. He's just approving of her having that sentiment.

While Todd Akin is stewing in the woodshed, Bill Clinton is preparing to speak at the Democratic National Convention, and the women most offended by Akins dumb remarks will be queuing up to cheer Clinton on.

Broaddrick: “Then he tries to kiss me again. And the second time he tries to kiss me he starts biting my lip (she cries). Just a minute … He starts to, um, bite on my top lip and I tried to pull away from him. (crying) And then he forces me down on the bed. And I just was very frightened, and I tried to get away from him and I told him ‘No,’ that I didn’t want this to happen (crying) but he wouldn’t listen to me.”

Myers: “Did you resist, did you tell him to stop?”

Broaddrick: “Yes, I told him ‘Please don’t.’ He was such a different person at that moment, he was just a vicious awful person.”

Myers: “You said there was a point at which you stopped resisting?”

Broaddrick: “Yeah.”

Myers: “Why?”

Broaddrick: “It was a real panicky, panicky situation. I was even to the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to ‘Please stop.’ And that’s when he pressed down on my right shoulder and he would bite my lip.”

Uhh, Clinton LIED about the incident and he would STILL be lying about it today were it not for a certain dress. Unfortunately, Juanita Broaddrick did not have a dress with Mr. Clinton's DNA all over it.
But it is one of the ultimate examples of liberal hypocrisy; apparently what Todd Akin SAYS is more offensive than what Bill Clinton actually DID. (Notice you did not see Akin speaking at the RNC). It is also a classic example of the Democratic Party's disconnect with reality; in their view Bill Clinton never did anything wrong. It is called "Denying Reality" and it is a Democratic trademark.
A group of people who celebrate a man like Clinton who then make accusations of Republicans waging a "War on Women" is as ridiculous as the party of slavery, segregation, KKK members and filibustering the Civil Rights movements calling the Republican party "racists".

Now let's see how long it takes Romantico to come in with his head still stuck up his ass, and say "LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE" (when he ends a post with "Nanna Nanna Boo Boo" we'll know he has REALLY gone over the cliff).

http://www.gallup.com/poll/4609/presidential-job-approval-bill-clintons-high-ratings-midst.aspx

FACT IS, Clinton is a rock star.He was an awesome President and a majority of Americans agree with that (look at all the poll numbers) PLUS Clinton,unlike GW Bush, has done so much good since leaving office. Look at the Clinton Global Initiative. Oh, and don;t get me started on all the good Carter has done.

People like Mikey and the other Repukes try and take away accomplishments Democrats have done because it makes them look so selfish and lazy.Noble Peace prize? That drives them nuts. Respected worldwide? God they hate that!

Plus look at Hillary. She has done this country proud.I remember Rush Limbaugh gloating on how they were gonna divorce. Here's Rush, two wives later preaching about morals and family values along with Newt Gingrich and Larry Craig.

This is for Mikey who obviously thinks Clinton is the only politician who has a scandal. Unlike the Repukes, Clinton bounced back and got the last laugh over the GOP who tried to destroy him.LOL!

Only goal you have achieved is that you don;t like facts very much,especially when they debunk and contradict the lies you spread here. Not just me but EVERYONE HERE disgaree's with you Mikey.EVERYONE!Oh, but we're all wrong and you are always right? LOL! Arrogant lying troll. Oh, and you are a teacher. Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!

You and your 'people' are so desperate to divert attention away from the fact that your party hates women that you have to bring up the Lewinsky scandal.LOL! Women LOVE Bill Clinton. Even Gloria Allred has said she likes Bill Clinton. You ignore all the politicians who have said God awful things about women and their actions. You ignore Rush Limbaugh and most of Hate Radio and you go back 14 years to make once again a weak argument that just does not hold up against the truth test. LOL! Talk about scarping the bottom of the barrel.

Mikey, you've accomplished nothing except prove what we all here have always known. That you are a liar and know nothing about politics (or debate)

Since your job here is done and you have embarrassed yourself as you always do, give us some peace. I mean, if you hate liberals so much you sure do spend a lot of your time here...........on a Broadway message board. Mikey, the man who is AGAINST GAY MARRIAGE on the Broadway message board who hates liberals and CONSTANTLY tries to change people's minds tries to convince us he is not a troll. LOL!

I don't think you revealed as much as you'd like to think. Bill Clinton has a history of assaulting women and then denying it when confronted. He got away with it for years, including the sexual assault of Juanita Broaddrick. He was FORCED to admit that he had "sexual relations" with "that woman" and that he lied about it when a dress he came on was admitted as evidence. In addition there were numerous other "Bimbo Eruptions" that dotted his history, most of which were NON CONSENSUAL! And THIS is the man who is giving the KEY NOTE ADDRESS at the DNC??? REALLY???

And let's compare if you will the economic record of Bill Clinton to that of Barack Obama:
AVG Jobless rate: Clinton (8 years) 5.2% Obama: 9%
GDP Growth: Clinton 3.9% Obama 0.7% (that is NOT a TYPO! ZERO POINT 7)
Total Federal Deficit: Clinton (8 YEARS) $1.5 Tril. Obama (4 years) $5.3 Tril

(Want to compare Bush's numbers to Obama??? Go ahead, DARE ME!!)

Were I Obama, I would NOT want this guy giving my key note address. He was a better President than Obama, so Obama compares horribly to CLinton, and he deflates the "War on Women" cry due to his record of abusing women.

Now THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call "BLINDING HYPOCRISY"!!

But, wait!! I'm not finished!!!

THe DNC's Key Note Speaker, former President Bill Clinton, made racially offensive comments about Barack Obama in 2008. He was heard to say to Sen Ted Kennedy in regards to Obama, "A few years ago this guy would have been carrying our luggage."
Ryan Lizza of THE NEW YORKER wrote: Tim Russert told me that, according to his sources, Bill Clinton, in an effort to secure an endorsement for Hillary from Ted Kennedy, said to Kennedy, “A few years ago, this guy would have been carrying our bags.”

Mikey gave no links with the post before with all those inaccurate numbers and stats. NOT ONE OF THEM WAS TRUE which is why you did not provide a link. COWARD!

So, Mikey has had to bring racism up with Democrats to prove a point. On another thread he had to go back to the civil war to find the most recent example.

Now he is getting info from Newsbuster, a right wing editorial tabloid site with ZERO CREDIBILITY WHATSOEVER and a tabloid site like Radar on line.

He knows the GOP Hate blacks and women so he has to go back 14 years to bring up Bill Clinton's scandal,which really wasn't a scandal considering his poll numbers and approval was high during that time and the the world loves him and respects him.

Bill Clinton is loved worldwide and respected. Bush and his Dad are laughed at. Jimmy Carter is a real humanitarian and a National Treasure. THESE FACTS Drive you nuts and I find it hysterical! Deal with it!

On top of that, the world and the country is seeing the real Mitt Romney and liking Obama more and more each day.

Obama got Bin Laden and he saved GM and you know it is true! LOL!

The Democratic Party's idea of "democracy".
They voted to ammend their party platform to reinstate the word "God" and to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This requires a 2/3 majority vote in the "Yay".
Problem is, the "Nays" were just as loud as the "Yays" --perhaps even LOUDER!
But THAT DOESN'T MATTER!! The folks had already written the lines into the teleprompter that the "Yays" had won. And so, despite their OBVIOUSLY NOT being a 2/3 majority in the affirmative, the "Yays" won!
Democratic Party: "Don't let the democratic process get in the way of our agenda! We don't give a RAT's ASS what you think or how you vote; we the RULING CLASS will HAVE OUR WAY!!

Posted by mikey2573 2012-09-06 20:01:27


Sorry Bill Clinton, but, unlike the years of your presidency, you are living in a world of FACT CHECKERS!!

"He [Obama] has offered a reasonable plan of $4 trillion in debt reduction over a decade. For every $2.5 trillion in spending cuts, he raises a dollar in new revenues, 2.5 to 1. And he has tight controls on future spending."
---Clinton

And we are supposed to BELIEVE that?
From the Washington Post: The repeated claim that Obamas budget reduces the deficit by $4 trillion is simply not accurate. Virtually no serious budget analyst agreed with this accounting. Moreover, the administration is also counting $848 billion in phantom savings from winding down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, even though the administration had long made clear those wars would end.

In other words, by projecting war spending far in the future, the administration is able to claim credit for saving money it never intended to spend. (Imagine taking credit for saving money on buying a new car every year, even though you intended to keep your car for 10 years.)

Rather than good arithmetic, independent budget analysts called the maneuver a major budget gimmick.

We could have done better, but last year the Republicans blocked the presidents job plan, costing the economy more than a million new jobs. So heres another job score. President Obama: plus 4.5 million. Congressional Republicans: zero.
 Clinton

Obamas jobs plan was more of a rhetorical device, aimed at Republicans, rather than a real plan. He even used the same $1 trillion in previously-agreed savings with Republicans, mentioned above, that was supposed to be in his budget in order to pay for this plan. The jobs plan also would be paid for with the imaginary money from winding down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. (The administration argued that the budget had never passed, so the money could be used again.)

Get the picture? Clinton praises Obama both for his sound budget math and for his jobs plan, even though the money to fund the budget and the jobs plan is used twice. That certainly doesn't pass the Arkansas 2+2=4 test.

During this period, more than 500,000 manufacturing jobs have been created under President Obama. Thats the first time manufacturing jobs have increased since the 1990s.
 Clinton

Clinton is referring to the period since February 2010, the administrations preferred date for counting employment figures. If you count from the beginning of Obamas term, Bureau of Labor Statistics data show that manufacturing jobs have declined by more than 500,000. Manufacturing jobs have been on a long steep decline since the middle of Clintons term.


I suppose it is easy for this guy to lie --and he does it so winningly!! Remember, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman...."
I don't want to post ALL the corrections in one massive post. My understanding is that the print edition of the post had nearly SIX PAGES of corrections on Clinoton's speech.
So, more to come.....

Or check it out on your own:

Another DISMAL jobs report yesterday. Making it even worse was the fact that August's dismal jobs report was adjusted DOWN by over 40,000 jobs, as was July's. So remember when everyone was freaking because of the horrible reports for July and August? Well, they were even WORSE than what was being reported. The GOOD news is, the unemployment rate dropped from 8.3% to 8.1%. The BAD news is, it only dropped because over 360, 000 job searchers decided to stop looking for work and go on 1. Disability 2. Social Security 3. Unemployment or 4. Welfare and Food Stamps.

So the question is, Do we want four more job reports like yesterday's? Or do we want four more YEARS of job reports like yesterday's?
Hmmmmmm.......tough decision......

ABC NEWS: "American employers cut back sharply on hiring last month, crushing hopes that the job market was improving and putting more pressure on the Federal Reserve to give the sluggish economy another jolt.

The Labor Department said Friday that employers added just 96,000 jobs in August, down from 141,000 in July and too few to keep up with population growth. The unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent from 8.3 percent, but only because many people gave up looking for work and therefore weren't counted in the government's calculation."

Mikey has never been anyone's friend here.

WTF does he have in common with ANYONE on a Broadway message board? Many suspect Mikey does not believe a word he ditto spews that he is actually as liberal as anyone else, just a bored troll looking to stir the pot. I think he is just a compulsive liar and a nut. He can't even keep his lies straight.He often contradicts things he says and when you show him a post in another thread where he says it he will go back, delete or reword the post and deny it. I did this once and the date he deleted it was the day I brought it to light for all to see. He is a coward and will dodge a question or dance around it more than Romney.He can not debate so he cuts and pastes instead. He changes the rules while discussing a an issue and Mikey NEVER ADMITS WHEN HE IS WRONG. NEVER.That's because in his pea brain he is never wrong and if he is than admitting it is a sign of weakness.

I swear to GOD, this woman is DUMB AS A POST!!

Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz on Tuesday denied a report from Washington Examiner columnist Philip Klein, who quoted the Florida congresswoman as saying that Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren described Republican policies toward Israel as dangerous for the Jewish state.

"That comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. Its not surprising that they would deliberately misquote me.

 Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz during Fox News interview, Sept. 4, 2012

Wasserman Schultz said the Examiner misquoted her, saying she never attributed the comments to Oren and that she really just said the GOP was treating the Middle East nation like a political football, which is dangerous for Israel. Klein defended his reporting, saying it was accurate and promising to post audio of the congresswomans comments.

The report from Klein quoted Wasserman Schultz saying, We know, and Ive heard no less than Ambassador Michael Oren say this, that what the Republicans are doing is dangerous for Israel.

The remarks came during a training session at the Democratic National Convention to instruct Jewish Democrats on how to persuade fellow Jewish Americans to vote for Obama, according to the Examiner.

Oren refuted the characterization that Wasserman Schultz attributed to him. He issued a statement Tuesday saying, I categorically deny that I ever characterized Republican policies as harmful to Israel. Bipartisan support is a paramount national interest for Israel, and we have great friends on both sides of the aisle.

In a Tuesday interview with Fox News, Wasserman Schultz argued that the Examiner had deliberately misquoted her. I didnt say [Oren] said that, she said. And unfortunately, that comment was reported by a conservative newspaper. Its not surprising that they would deliberately misquote me. What I always say is that unfortunately the Republicans have made Israel a political football, which is dangerous for Israel. And Ambassador Oren has said that we cant ever suggest that there is any daylight between the two parties on Israel because there isnt. And that thats harmful to Israel. Thats what I said, and that is accurate.

Klein later posted audio of Wasserman Schultzs comments to prove that his quote was accurate.
Watch the video; it shows her denying she ever said it and blaming a right wing newspaper for misquoting her, then we hear her saying what she claims she never said!

Get your facts straight Mickey (oh, I forgot ... Repubs don't believe in facts)

From the Washington Post:

About the same time, the Republican National Committee and prominent Republicans such as Dick Cheney and John McCain threw another faulty bit of plumbing at Obama: that the president “does not attend his daily intelligence meeting” more than half the time, in contrast to George W. Bush, who “almost never missed his daily intelligence meeting.” This claim was the work of former Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen, who writes a weekly online column for The Washington Post.

In reality, Obama didn’t “attend” these meetings, because there were no meetings to attend: The oral briefings had been mostly replaced by daily exchanges in which Obama reads the materials and poses written questions and comments to intelligence officials. This is how it was done in the Clinton administration, before Bush decided he would prefer to read less. Bush’s results — Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction, and the failure to find Osama bin Laden — suggest this was not an obvious improvement.

That is a loss of over $4,000 per family.

That is a drop of 7.3% in under 4 years!

That is more than twice the decline of 2.6% that occurred during the recession from December, 2007 until June, 2009.

Except that doesn't scare them. They've created a whole strategy around getting their brains blown out for the cause. In fact, your statement is exactly what they want us to say. It allows them to justify, in their minds, doing what they're doing.

This is why we need someone like Obama in office. He understands the subtleties of foreign affairs. And it's exactly why we don't need a cowboy like Bush or McCain or a bozo like Romney.

Obama understands that this outburst of anti-American protest has nothing to do with the film in question. That's just a convenient excuse for radical groups to instigate new attacks...and on 9/11 of all days...what an amazing coincidence.

Romney, on the other hand, has a strategy of trying to put out fire with gasoline.

Romney would come from a position of strength. Obama is coming from a position of weakness.

Yes, my "Official statement" was done partly in jest. However, it is showing strength and resolve. The Cairo embassy's statement was a lame attempt at appeasement. Are you SERIOUSLY believing that apologies and appeasements are more effective when dealing with these radical muslims ?? They see that as WEAKNESS.

When I see all those Muslims gathered in front of our embassies, burning our flag and chanting "Death to America", I want to know why we aren't dropping bombs on the mofos! There they are all together in a big group --WIPE THEM OUT! Something tells me that Ambassador Stevens might have preferred THAT to what eventually went down in Libya.
These muslims WANT to die for their god?? FINE!! Your wish is GRANTED!! (And that line is right from a Broadway musical!)

A few weeks ago I was challenged to compare the Bush economic record to that of Obama. Instead of doing it all in one massive post, I have been spreading it out bit by bit. Here is my latest

You say strength vs weakness. I say intelligent strategy vs unthinking aggression.

What do you think the consequences of wiping them all out would be? Hadn't thought that far ahead? My point, right there.

Obama has failed in every way. The Middle East and North Africa are in flames, and Obama cannot even come close to dealing with it.

Morning Jim!

Have you ever had a cactus needle get stuck in your urethra before?

The way you hump that thing, I thought it might be a frequent occurrence.

"What do you think the consequences of wiping them all out would be?"

A lot of dead American-hating, Jew-hating, women-hating, murderous, radical muslims.

And a lot of living American-hating, Jew-hating, women-hating, murderous radical muslims who are thinking, "Gee, ever tyime we gather to burn their flags and chant our hatred they kill us. Maybe we should stop doing that."

It's WIN WIN!

But that is NOT how they think. Or how they would think, history proves it.

Exactly, Snafu. They don't see death as a threat. They see it as an honor. So threats of death don't work. That's why the Bush/Romney/Mikey mentality fails every time. And the fact that they can't see it is really the biggest failure.

If death is such an honr, I say we HONOR them by giving it to them.
Again, let me ask you in all seriousness, do you REALLY believe that the Obama strategy of "If we are nice to them they'll be nice to us" works?

I don't believe that's his strategy. So I can't answer that question.

If Mikey really is a teacher I hope he doesn't have any Muslim American students.

Then what IS his strategy??
(BTW, I could easily prove that what I stated in my previous post is indeed Obama's strategy. But if you say it is not, I would really like to know what you think it is.)

"I think the trick is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because I actually believe in redistribution at least at a certain level to make sure that everybody's got a shot."

Not sure where this "government redistribution" idea is found in the Constitution.

LOL!! Constitution Shmonnstitution! What does it matter?
