    Come off it BM, everyone knows he inherited a legacy of debt from his predecessor helping bankers commit the biggest theft in global banking history.

    What do you think a Republican would have done to fix it?

    Romney would be a disaster for America - first mission would be to bomb Iran.

    Should let Obama wait until Iran is ready to bomb back.

    A Republican would not have bailed out the Unions strangling General Motors and probably would have let them die a quiet death. W/respect to the bankers, can't say but the salient point is a Republican wouldn't be trying income redistribution "You got to spread the $ around" and a Republican would not believe, let alone say "You Can't Build That".

    We know that from the trillions of dollars that the top 5% have amassed in the last few decades.

    and a Republican would not believe, let alone say "You Can't Build That".

    An overworked soundbite to be honest, I think he's right to say it if he means "We've got to help small business get on their feet (or back on their feet), but of course it was too easy to turn it against him.

    Heh...they're in severe Panic Mode: Obama Desperately Adds More Fundraisers To Schedule...

    The Obama campaign, worried about the growing cash advantage for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and the outside groups backing him, is adding a series of big money fundraisers to the president’s schedule in coming weeks.

    It is also expected to add more fundraisers than usual after the Democratic Convention, which takes place Sept. 3-6, The Hill reports.

    Obama already is amping up the money-raising itinerary. On Monday afternoon, he traveled to New York for dinner with 60 attendees that cost them $40,000 per person. Last week Obama combed for cash in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and several spots on the West Coast.

    Romney’s not shying away from the money hounding either. But his campaign will likely shift from exclusive fundraising events to public rallies in the weeks before Election Day, sources close to the campaign told The Hill. The public rallies should be more useful in attracting the independent voters who will likely decide the election’s outcome

    Obama Desperately Adds More Fundraisers to Schedule

    Between fundraising, campaigning and golfing that doesn't leave much time for actual work...

    ^ Why is that surprising? It shows the state of "democracy" in the US that you need tens of millions of dollars to run for the presidency. Excludes a large chunk of the population, doesn't it?

    Gallup: Obama's Approval Rating Below 50% In 36 States




    A majority of residents in 13 states and the District of Columbia approved of the job Barack Obama did as president during the first six months of 2012. His highest ratings by state were in Hawaii (63%) and Rhode Island (58%), in addition to the 83% approval from District of Columbia residents. In 16 states, his approval rating averaged below 40%, with residents of Utah, Wyoming, and Alaska least approving.

    The 13 states and District of Columbia with majorities approving of Obama's job performance in the first half of 2012 is a slight increase from Obama's 2011 totals, as all 10 states with 50% or greater approval in 2011 remained at that level and were joined by Rhode Island, Washington state, and Minnesota. Additionally, Obama's approval rating fell just below the majority significant approval threshold in Michigan and Wisconsin, two key swing states this presidential election year. Six other states had approval ratings of 46% or 47%.

    The 50% approval mark is because post-World War II incumbent presidents who have been above 50% job approval on Election Day were easily re-elected. Presidents with approval ratings below 50% have more uncertain re-election prospects. Historically, two presidents below 50% in their final approval rating before the election -- George W. Bush and Harry Truman -- won, and three, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George H.W. Bush, lost.

    And Washinton D.C. has a 78% black population, and many of them work for the government.

    As the video I posted in Obama Jokes (this one really ain't a joke) depicts, there's becoming a groundswell of Blacks rejecting Obama.

    Remember back in the 80s when everyone was running around like chickens with their heads cut off? The Japanese are coming! The Japanese are coming! The Japanese flush with dollars were buying up American real estate like Pebble Beach Golf course and Rockefeller Center.

    Pebble Beach is now owned by a group which includes Arnold Palmer and Clint Eastwood.

    Rockefeller Center slipped into bankruptcy in 1996 and was bought by a Goldman-Sachs group.

    So the indomitable Japanese retreated and the properties are back in US hands.

    On a sidenote, GM, in it's efforts to continuously reduce the bottom line, forced parts suppliers to open up factories in China to reduce their labor costs on parts sold to GM. So all the hysterics that had GM gone bankrupt hundreds of thousands of down-line jobs would have been lost is overstated.

    Funny you should say that.



    A January 13, 2008 piece in The New York Times - published two days before the Michigan primary - reads:
    ”The question is, where is Washington?” Mr. Romney said, speaking to a gaggle of reporters across from a General Motors transmission plant near Ypsilanti, where 200 layoffs were announced this week. ”Where does it stop? Is there a point at which someone says ‘enough’? Or are we going to allow the entire domestic automotive manufacturing industry to disappear?”
    Mr. Romney criticized the energy bill signed into law last month by President Bush that requires cars and trucks sold in the United States to achieve a fleet average of 35 miles per gallon by 2020. Substantial majorities in both parties in both houses of Congress approved the measure. Mr. McCain voted for it.
    Mr. Romney said he opposed the new mileage standard, describing it as an anvil tossed to Detroit by a government that did not understand the auto industry or care about its workers. ”As president, I will not rest as Detroit gets to see layoff after layoff after layoff,” he said.

    I don't get it. Somehow a Romney and GM association is funny just for being a Romney GM association? Romney said the increase in mileage requirements hinders business. So what? It's true. Everyone knew the condition GM was in at the time piling on regulations and requirements isn't going to help. It isn't going to help labor either.

    ^The Campaign POTUS doesn't want any critical thinking. He wants to keep things on an emotional level. Like the feeling people get when they think of Romney and his conjuring up of money via witchcraft.

    Like this isn't news, eh? Poll Farce: Pew Oversamples Democrats to Boost Obama.

    The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted July 16-26, 2012, among 2,508 adults, including 1,956 registered voters, finds that, in keeping with his favorability advantage, Obama continues to hold a sizable lead over Romney in the election contest. Currently, 51% say they support Obama or lean toward him, while 41% support or lean toward Romney.

    Except….
    Sample Size:

    459 Republicans
    813 Democrats
    599 Independents

    In the best election season Democrats have enjoyed since Nixon resigned, 2008, the Democrat advantage was only D+8, but Pew is now attempting to hustle us into believing the turnout this year is going to be D +19.

    This is slightly creepy, man...

    Obama Campaign Releases App That Allows You To Locate The Home Of The Nearest Obamabot:

    Curious how many Democrats live on your block? Just download the Obama campaign’s new mobile app.
    The app, released last week, includes a Google map for canvassers that recognizes your current location and marks nearby Democratic households with small blue flags.
    For each targeted address, the app displays the first name, age and gender of the voter or voters who live there: “Lori C., 58 F, Democrat.”

    All this is public information, which campaigns have long given to volunteers. But you no longer have to schedule a visit to a field office and wait for a staffer to hand you a clipboard and a printed-out list of addresses.
    With the Obama app, getting a glimpse of your neighbor’s political affiliation can take seconds.
    While The New York Times dubbed the app “the science-fiction dream of political operatives,” some of the voters who appear in the app are less enthusiastic about it.
    “I do think it’s something useful for them, but it’s also creepy,” said Lori Carena, 58, a long-time Brooklyn resident, when she was shown the app. “My neighbors across the street can know that I’m a Democrat. I’m not sure I like that"

    The Bro Gotta Go

    Well, I'm fairly certain none of my neighbors are left-wing moonbats but mebe some a y'all back there in the land of the free can use it.

    Gone mighty quiet on this here thread. What's the matter boys & girls, nothing left in his defense is there? Well, if the story below is any indication of how Obama is running his campaign, you're right, there's nothing defensible left w/regard to the Indonesian Imbecile:

    As you should know, super pacs aren't supposed to coordinate with the campaigns. This would be why Obama's people don't know about the ad.

    Is what that man said happened to him and his wife untrue? I can't figure it out.

    ^^That is a good ad and true thousands of times over. The right would like to strip the working class down to the point that they are paid minimum wage and have no benefits. Disgusting reality.

    What does it say when CNN feels compelled to blow the whistle on a Democrat office seeker's lie? It means the lie is so over-the-top untrue that they had to. They didn't feel that way four years ago though, did they?
