    Approve of Obama? LOL.

    Here's the real list of Obama's "accomplishments" along with some more facts proving his incompetence and radical beliefs.





    1) Obama hires marxists and communists and these types of people absolutely love control. Here's a list of characters he surrounds himself with: Anita Dunn, the White House Communications Director praises Mao Tse Tung, a well-known communist. She said that Mao Tse Tung and Mother Theresa are her favorite philosophers. ( she resigned) He hired Van Jones as a czar and Jones is an avowed communist. ( he resigned) Here’s some more of a list of shady characters who are/were in Obama’s inner circle.



    Tony Rezko, Allison Davis, Raila Odinga, Jaramogi Oginga Odinga, Bernardine Dohrn, William Ayers, Saul Alinksy, George Soros, Rep. Jan Schakowsky, Robert Creamer, Rev. Jeremiah Wright in whom’s church he sat for 20 years and did not know he was a racist, Louis Farrakhan, and Mohammar Kaddafy just to name a few.

    3) And his destruction of our economy?



    On Nov. 4, after Barack Obama clinched the White House, the market closed at 9,625.28.



    In mid-morning trading , the day President Obama signed his massive Generational Theft Act into law and a day before he unveiled a massive new mortgage entitlement, the Dow dropped to to 7,606.53. Imagine if President Bush had presided over a 2,000-point stock market drop in the same time period — during the first few months of his presidency, Dems would be shouting from the mountain tops. I will also provide one brief example of Obama vs Bush and their stimulus plans and how the markets reacted:







    Bush: From March 2003 to October 2003, the S&P; 500 went from 835 to 1034 or 23.8%.







    Obama: From January 2009 through July 2009, the S&P; went from 932 to 879 or -5.2%.







    ****Let us also compare spending. consider that from Jan. 20, 2001, to Jan. 20, 2009, the debt held by the public grew $3 trillion under Mr. Bush—to $6.3 trillion from $3.3 trillion at a time when the national economy grew as well. By comparison, from the day Mr. Obama took office last year to the end of the current fiscal year, according to the Office of Management and Budget, the debt held by the public will grow by $3.3 trillion.



    In 20 months, President Obama will add as much debt as President Bush ran up in eight years.







    Dems must like the change so far huh?



    ****In response to the deficit:



    def



    ****The Obama Administration’s printing of money has been absolutely unprecedented in U.S. history. He thinks that printing money is the way to pay off debt when it will undoubtedly lead to hyperinflation. ( very simply put hyperinflation means prices go up as the dollar loses it's value)



    Since September, the 'monetary base,' which is the measure of currency plus bank reserves, has doubled from about $850 billion to $1.7 trillion.



    ****He said if we pass his stupid stimulus, unemployment will not go above 8%. As of January , it is still 8.2% according to bls.



    http://www.bls.gov/news.relea...



    Unemployment hasn't been below 8% since it was passed. Everyone knows it's a payback to unions that got him elected. Obama also knows that most of the money will come back to his campaign via union dues.



    ****One major point to remember. the REAL unemployment rate is 22.5%, The BLS no longer considers as “unemployed” those workers without jobs who have not looked for work in the past year because they feel no jobs are available.****

    ****Obama and his administration is racist. Here's some examples:

    By: David Limbaugh | 07/18/10 2:00 AM



    While President Obama has touted himself as a post-racial president, he has built a record demonstrating precisely the opposite. Is it Obama's bitterness, or is the incessant playing of the race card by him and many of his supporters merely calculated political exploitation -- or both?



    Let's look at a non-exhaustive list of examples since Obama took office.



    --Feb. 18, 2009: Obama's attorney general, Eric Holder, accused the nation of being a nation of cowards on race.



    --April 2009: NewsBusters reported that at the behest of the National Association of Black Owned Broadcasters, Democratic Federal Communications Commission Commissioner Jonathan Adelstein demanded a government inquiry into how the electronic Portable People Meter (used to measure radio ratings and which experts believe to be a far more reliable measure than the previous system) collects data. Obama's FCC indeed ordered an inquiry in the name of "diversity" because under the modern system, hip-hop ratings had declined and conservative talk ratings had increased.



    --May 2009: White House press secretary Robert Gibbs warned critics of Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor to measure their words carefully, implying they were race-based.



    --May 2009: The Obama-Holder Justice Department dismissed a case against New Black Panther Party members for voter intimidation, even though it had already won the case. Former Justice lawyer J. Christian Adams said that the NAACP lobbied Obama to have the case dismissed and that the case was dismissed based on the Justice Department's outrageous policy of not prosecuting such cases against blacks when they involve white victims.



    --July 2009: Not having heard all the facts, Obama accused Cambridge, Mass., police of "acting stupidly" in arresting a friend of his, Harvard professor Henry Gates, for disorderly conduct, dangling race as a motive for the arrest.



    --August 2009: The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights raised constitutional questions about the Obama administration's giving preferential treatment to minority students for scholarships and favoring medical schools that have records of sending graduates to areas with inadequate health care services.



    --September 2009: A video surfaced of Obama's "green jobs czar," Van Jones, saying, "You've never seen a Columbine done by a black child." It's "suburbanite white kids" who do it.



    --September 2009: Obama's FCC "diversity czar," Mark Lloyd, was seen on video saying, "There are few things, I think, more frightening in the American mind than dark-skinned black men." He also said, by the way, that the Fairness Doctrine wasn't enough to restore fairness to broadcasting. In 2005, Lloyd had complained that white Americans owned and controlled 98 percent of all federal broadcast licenses. Lloyd suggested at one point that white media executives should "step down" in favor of minorities.



    --September 2009: Politico reported that in a speech to the Congressional Black Caucus, Obama "opened with a fiery civil rights talk, ticking off racial disparities, calling for greater enforcement of civil rights laws and saying that the new White House Office of Urban affairs is working to address inequality." He also compared Obamacare to the civil rights struggle.



    --October 2009: The Obama-Holder Justice Department overruled a decision by the city of Kinston, N.C., to do away with party affiliation of candidates in local elections, saying that equal rights for black voters cannot be achieved without the Democratic Party.



    --February 2010: After Obama had twice insulted Las Vegas and discouraged tourism there, Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman strongly criticized him, which led Obama supporters to accuse Goodman of racism.



    --March 2010: The Obama administration filed a brief supporting racial preferences in university admissions.



    --March 2010: Rep. John Lewis alleged that tea party protesters hurled racial slurs, but videos of the alleged incident did not corroborate it, making many believe the charges were fabricated.



    --March 2010 -- The Rev. Jeremiah Wright said tea party opposition to Obamacare was based on hatred for "people of color." New York Times columnist Frank Rich made similar allegations.



    --April 2010: WorldNetDaily reported that Gerry Hudson, executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, said white American workers are "so f---ing rabidly racist" their sentiments can be used to scare blacks into supporting comprehensive immigration reform.



    --April 2010: The Washington Examiner reported that a reporter asked a black protester whether he was "uncomfortable" as part of the tea party.



    --Then there's the administration's playing the race card against Arizona's non-racial-profiling law, Obama's suggesting al-Qaida is racist, Obama's saying Israel is suspicious of him because of his middle name -- as opposed to his horrendous policies toward it -- and the NAACP's calling the tea party racist and then denying it.



    It turns out that others are noticing this above-described phenomenon, as well, as a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll revealed that fewer and fewer people believe Obama's presidency has advanced racial relations -- 4 in 10, compared with 6 in 10 when he was inaugurated.



    This is a very sad turn of events in this nation.

    In as much as he has been able to do. Unfortunately, he has been hamstrung a lot and has been forced into compromises that I think he would have preferred to not have to agree. I want to see him win another term and hope that he is able to get some real things accomplished - and have some help in the House and Senate to do so.

    But only when compared to the alternative. I would have preferred Obama to throw GW's butt in jail and to immediately end the idiotic wars but that was too much to hope for. I appreciate that he has brought the stock market back and that the economy is now growing. Republicans probably would have had an economy still contracting. Stock market would be down under 3000 by now if republicans remained in control

    I'm not by any stretch suggesting he's done a perfect job, but the negative rhetoric and perspective about just how badly people think he has performed I don't think is fair. He did inherit a horrible mess and I don't think it was likely that anyone could have performed much better given the circumstances. I'd give him a B, not an F like it seems many people feel. Sorry if anyone is annoyed with my view. I respect everyone's opinion. I could get into detail if necessary...

    Thank you. I agree. I tell my "conservative" friends that Obama is the reincarnation of Richard Nixon, the true founder of Obama care. Both Nixon and Kennedy were viewed as moderates in 1960. Today the democratic party would still consider them moderates but the republican party would consider them pinko commies.

    Given the plate he was handed, a meltdown of our financial institutions, millions of people who lost their jobs, 750,000 more jobs a month lost, two war fronts, hundreds of thousands of homes foreclosed, college out of site, a huge deficit, banks on the ropes, the stockmarket at 6,000 (today at 13,000), I would say he's done a helluva lot better than McCain would have. Remember he had no alternative solutions and like Hoover 75 years before, was merely willing to let the economy right itself.

As far as the polls go, They're all over the place just like they were back in 2008. But like a numskull conservative idiot, you learn nothing. In the 2008 election FOX News and Rasmussen had McCain winning right up to his concession speech. Romney is losing with a 20+ point gap with women, and 18 point gap with Latinos. Anyone with two brain cells to rub together know that's a recipe for defeat and a huge hone. But anyone who knows f*ckall about politics knows that these polls are erroneous projections at best, especially before a single debate has yet to take place.

Face it the guys an untrustworthy liar, hack, hypocrite, and two faced fake. You don't like the President and I get that, it's your prerogative.

    This is one of my favorites. I wrote it myself.

    Satan's most effective lie is convincing the world that he does not exist. Even people who are members of atheist-satanist religions make the ridiculous assertion that they are not devil worshippers because the devil does not exist. They claim that the name Lucifer isn't a real being, but a 'concept' of personal freedom and that their religion is the ultimate liberation for the individual. With this mindset, and no threat of accountability, i.e. no hell, anyone can literally do anything he wants.

    Sir Julian Huxley, evolutionist and famous atheist apologist, once stated,
    "[I suppose the reason] we all jumped on the Origin [Origin of Species] was because the idea of God interferred with our sexual mores". He was talking about substituting the pseudoscience of evolution for belief in the Creator.

    This is the most blatant, and the most surprisingly honest statement I've ever heard anyone use as an excuse for not believing in God, and by extension, eternal damnation. He's literally saying that because he wants to make up his own rules about sex, he'll latch onto anything that allows him to deny God, even something as preposterous as evolution.

    Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes?

    You and I don't propose a federal budget. The President does.

    You and I don't have the Constitutional authority to vote on appropriations. The House of Representatives does.

    You and I don't write the tax code, Congress does.

    You and I don't set fiscal policy, Congress does.

    You and I don't control monetary policy, the Federal Reserve Bank does.

    One hundred senators, 435 congressmen, one President, and nine Supreme Court justices equates to 545 human beings out of the 300 million are directly, legally, morally, and individually responsible for the domestic problems that plague this country.

    I excluded the members of the Federal Reserve Board because that problem was created by the Congress. In 1913, Congress delegated its Constitutional duty to provide a sound currency to a federally chartered, but private, central bank.

    I excluded all the special interests and lobbyists for a sound reason. They have no legal authority. They have no ability to coerce a senator, a congressman, or a President to do one cotton-picking thing. I don't care if they offer a politician $1 million dollars in cash. The politician has the power to accept or reject it. No matter what the lobbyist promises, it is the legislator's responsibility to determine how he votes.

    Those 545 human beings spend much of their energy convincing you that what they did is not their fault. They cooperate in this common con regardless of party.

    What separates a politician from a normal human being is an excessive amount of gall. No normal human being would have the gall of a Speaker, who stood up and criticized the President for creating deficits. The President can only propose a budget. He cannot force the Congress to accept it.

    The Constitution, which is the supreme law of the land, gives sole responsibility to the House of Representatives for originating and approving appropriations and taxes. Who is the speaker of the House? John Boehner. He is the leader of the majority party. He and fellow House members, not the President, can approve any budget they want. If the President vetoes it, they can pass it over his veto if they agree to.

    It seems inconceivable to me that a nation of 300 million cannot replace 545 people who stand convicted -- by present facts -- of incompetence and irresponsibility. I can't think of a single domestic problem that is not traceable directly to those 545 people. When you fully grasp the plain truth that 545 people exercise the power of the federal government, then it must follow that what exists is what they want to exist.

    If the tax code is unfair, it's because they want it unfair.

    If the budget is in the red, it's because they want it in the red.

    If the Army & Marines are in Iraq and Afghanistan it's because they want them in Iraq and Afghanistan ...

    If they do not receive social security but are on an elite retirement plan not available to the people, it's because they want it that way.

    There are no insoluble government problems.

    Do not let these 545 people shift the blame to bureaucrats, whom they hire and whose jobs they can abolish; to lobbyists, whose gifts and advice they can reject; to regulators, to whom they give the power to regulate and from whom they can take this power. Above all, do not let them con you into the belief that there exists disembodied mystical forces like "the economy," "inflation," or "politics" that prevent them from doing what they take an oath to do.

    Those 545 people, and they alone, are responsible.

    They, and they alone, have the power.

    They, and they alone, should be held accountable by the people who are their bosses.

    Provided the voters have the gumption to manage their own employees...

    We should vote all of them out of office and clean up their mess!

    Taking us to a needless war, giving obscene tax cuts to the "job creators" who created no jobs, allowing no bids on the abysmal Part D of Medicare, all unfunded, not challenging any of the reckless spending and bloated budgets that were sent to him the first 6 years of his majority. How's that for starters?

    Were you in a coma for that time?

    Obviously you do not know what you are talking about

    A. 82 Democrats in the United States House of Representatives voted for the Iraq War resolution after seeing the intelligence gathered
    B. 29 Democrats in the United States Senate voted for the Iraqi war resolution after seeing the intelligence reports.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    Oh wait, by needless war you must be referencing the war with Libya that Obama started WITHOUT congressional approval right?

    http://www.nytimes.com/2011/0...

    Second, tax cuts INCREASE government revenue. Didn't they teach you that in school? Don't believe it, then Google it.

    Third, you want to debate reckless spending? No one has spent as much as Obama...that's not even debatable. Google it, denial won't help your argument.

    Face it, the left is full of idiots, Obama and his Democratic allies in Congress included.

    If you remember the time that the Bush/Cheney cabal set their eyes on Iraq, this country was still traumatized by 9/11 and to even suggest that the President was wrong on any action he took was considered nothing less than treason. I believe the great Ann Coulter said at the time, "anyone disagreeing with then President Bush was tantamount to treason and should be hung from the nearest tree".

    The fact that the Dems did not do their own thorough investigating, believing the lies and distortions that Bush perpetrated, failed to read the PDR's that would have sent up red flags all over the place, yes, I hold them as well as the press who ill-served us also in not investigating, responsible as well.

    Clinton raised taxes and we entered one of the most prosperous times of our recent history. We were well on our way to balancing the budget and I was able to save enough that I could retire way early by the end of his term. Had I just waited less than a year after GW took office, I would have never done that. We lost a huge chunk of it in the meltdown and I never thought it would come back, but slowly and surely it has. There were no jobs created after Bush's cuts and the super wealthy like Willard Romney took their gains and either took them off-shore or squirreled them away where they couldn't be taxed.

    "The Left is full of idiots"? Right, and the republicans did so well themselves. We tried it your way cupcake and it failed in everyway possible.

    I see everything I listed went over your head Missy. O'Dumbo is a disgrace...
    There were Democrats on the intelligence committee that agreed with President Bush after seeing the evidence...oh good grief how many times have we been through this and the uneducated left still spews ignorance.

    Civil? LOL...you referred to me as cupcake remember? Now if you can have a civil discussion and not dance around my facts, everything would be fine.

    You said "There were no jobs created after Bush's cuts" Actually you are incorrect. After the Bush administration tax cuts, there were 52 months of continuous job creation.

    52 months of job creation is the largest such period in American history.
