Obama sinks to the occasion....

YouTube - Paul Ryan Expresses Disappointment At President's Irresponsible Lack of Leadership



obama is like a skitzo....

first he does all the liberal crazyness, and loses a huge number of seats.

then he turns around, starts wars, agrees with republicans on various issues, extends the bush tax cuts... etc...


then, with election in sight, he slips back to those liberal voters who want him to just attack and destroy any bipartisanship in our country... as paul ryan said- "exploiting peoples emotions of fear, envy and anxiety is NOT hope , or change, its PARTISANSHIP....we dont need partisanship, we dont need demagoguery, we need solutions." does anybody who watched obamas speech yesterday think his bulshit about complaining about bush AGAIN... (its 2011 for god sake) and to talk about how clinton had a balanced budget-- what the hell is he thinking?

some of his liberal supporters, i really gotta say, dont u guys get how hes just playing you for fools? he goes out and compromises, and does all the moderate things to get the ball rolling with the new republicans, and throws all your priorities out.... and starts new wars, and doesnt close gitmo.... and then if he comes out and says BOO BOO RICH PEOPLE then he expects you to just flock back to him like some mindless idiots... obama with rich people is like guiliani with 9/11, he uses it like a dog treat for ed shultz type people to just lead them wherever he wants- its almost like he didnt make this recent attack speech because he thought it was wise or smart...but because he thought he needed to get liberals to flock back to him and the best way to do that is , in the words of paul ryan "exploit fear".... he just released a press thing that went "Obama will protect you from any changes to medicare and medicaid as long as he is president".... yea , except we'll be bankrupt at the end of his 2nd term and then instead of having 3/4s the benefits u might have had, it will be 0, or .0001% as determined by the chinese debt commission that becomes the overseer of our economy when we default on our 100 trillion dollars of liberal-acquired debt.

edit- heres another good vid for ya

Cool If the Environment Was a Bank, We'd already saved it.

Isn't it interesting that the last Republican President to balance the budget was Dwight D. Eisenhower? Clinton gave Bush a balanced budget with a surplus and Bush squandered it and handed Obama a huge budget deficit.

Then the goofy bastards whine about the deficit?

Conservatives Have Larger 'Fear Centers' in Their Brains
Liberals have more gray matter in a part of the brain associated with understanding complexity, while the conservative brain is bigger in the section related to processing fear, said the study on Thursday in Current Biology.
That's what they sell. Fear, Hobgoblins and Gossip. They also sell poisons for food and then sell drugs to treat the poisons. They sell crude oil to give us cancer and lung disease. Then sell us chemo and outlaw Ganja. Obombo can be accused of being too Neocon. The teabags are herd mentalities like JFQ. 5 generations of Ganja prohibition leaving them sheople brained herd mentalities. Programmed into worshipping suits and ties and dollar bills. Infallible corporation machines with no thought of the harm to actual living breathing Americans. Bottom line dwellers. Sad, they fear Liberty because of Accountability. Debate scares the begeeeeezus as much as transparency. Bullies out shouting and pounding on walls. Swiftboat s&d then let god sort out the truth. Every election gullible twits fall in line.

Christian fascism went underground in the 90's. Make no mistake they still fuel the wrong side of the republicans. With the unapologetic Fascist like Soros and the Koch roaches. Grow up. Like a junkie you can't stop pleading for trickle downs and apologizing to Lock head or begging Representatives for more war money. The Ganjawar is becoming a mainline topic without the professional reformers and appeasers and money because of the internet. Same with the obvious Ryan Nazi's sending seniors and disabled Vets to bargain rate torture chambers and warehouses according to their credit scores. Throwing women's right to choose under the bus but saving Wall Street Banksters doesn't raise an eyebrow. Lies sending troops to remove one dictator bunkered with no real authority. One trillion bucks. One man One trillion based on lies. We know they were lies and yet we choose to keep the title of president clean. Is it a wonder why Americans believe they're always the good guys?

Slick PDFA Lies



The Neocon Dicks Armey of Billion dollar profits, Insurance Companies are just keen on Ryan's plan to accept new seniors with pre-existing conditions. Just lay down that plastic Mastercard. Oh you can't afford it? Go fish. Lies and set ups to trash ACORN helping low income families buy houses by knocking down the huge profit the real estate market makes. Not free enterprise, like Citgo giving seniors heating oil was not fair to Exxon profit margin. Taxpayers paying for the Exxon Valdeeze. 99 cents on the dollar for clean up in Palin's Alaska. Where's Palin? With Exxon making deals to rape the wilderness? Wars protecting crude oil. Spills and Leaks and run off sickening kids. Lies on lies and yet they still vote them in if they lie the way it sounds good to them. Pitifools and Fossil fools. Why is bombing the Middle east for a trillion dollars better than American farmers growing our fuel needs?



Latest Hypocritical GOPerversion, another Prohibition!

Trash Planned Parenthood on flat out lies to Congress. Kyl swore in testimony to legislate policy that 90% of PP was for Federally paid abortions. Reality... 3% of PP performs abortions. 87% is for preventing abortions that the Neocons seem to dismiss. His reply to lying to Congress. "It wasn't supposed to be taken factually." Wonder if Barry Bonds used that one? No abortions have been performed under title 10 since the Hyde Amendment. Nothing mentioned about the abortions from the 90 million pounds of poison sprayed on the US cotton crop. Or that Hemp is organic. Nothing about the Police Actions they profit on aborting kids in Afghanistan and Iraq and Colombia and Mexico with NAFTA/GATT and bare environmental safeguards. Pro Life? Not even ant abortionists.

Nixon Lie Keeps on Killing

Why is this crap about gutting social services and infrastructure and schools even on the table with such clear gross thievery in the multi billions and your thinking about cutting Social Security and Medicaid? SS doesn't drain the budget and maybe Millionaires don't need a check. 1/3rd of the budget is transferred from the states and counties to the Feds just by the redundancy of taxing tax paid employees. Directly affecting private patients for out of pocket home care. Tax shelters lying about Ganja. Tax shelters with 5000 US deadbeat companies Head Quartered in one building. Just to avoid paying for the roads their trucks tear up. Treason. Hang-em.

10 worst corporate income tax avoiders.

1) Exxon Mobil made $19 billion in profits in 2009. Exxon not only paid no federal income taxes, it actually received a $156 million rebate from the IRS, according to its SEC filings.

2) Bank of America received a $1.9 billion tax refund from the IRS last year, although it made $4.4 billion in profits and received a bailout from the Federal Reserve and the Treasury Department of nearly $1 trillion.

3) Over the past five years, while General Electric made $26 billion in profits in the United States, it received a $4.1 billion refund from the IRS.

4) Chevron received a $19 million refund from the IRS last year after it made $10 billion in profits in 2009.

5) Boeing, which received a $30 billion contract from the Pentagon to build 179 airborne tankers, got a $124 million refund from the IRS last year.

6) Valero Energy, the 25th largest company in America with $68 billion in sales last year received a $157 million tax refund check from the IRS and, over the past three years, it received a $134 million tax break from the oil and gas manufacturing tax deduction.

7) Goldman Sachs in 2008 only paid 1.1 percent of its income in taxes even though it earned a profit of $2.3 billion and received an almost $800 billion from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury Department.

8) Citigroup last year made more than $4 billion in profits but paid no federal income taxes. It received a $2.5 trillion bailout from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury.

9) ConocoPhillips, the fifth largest oil company in the United States, made $16 billion in profits from 2007 through 2009, but received $451 million in tax breaks through the oil and gas manufacturing deduction.

10) Over the past five years, Carnival Cruise Lines made more than $11 billion in profits, but its federal income tax rate during those years was just 1.1 percent.

"The mission of the Christian Coalition is simple," says Pat Robertson. It is "to mobilize Christians -- one precinct at a time, one community at a time -- until once again we are the head and not the tail, and at the top rather than the bottom of our political system." Robertson predicts that "the Christian Coalition will be the most powerful political force in America by the end of this decade." And, "We have enough votes to run this country...and when the people say, 'We've had enough,' we're going to take over!"
--Pat Robertson
Citizens for Tax Justice estimates that corporations reap more than $123 billion a year in special tax breaks.

Department of Defense's functions, including weapons procurement, have been deemed high risk by the GAO. That means there's a high probability that money - "tens of billions," according to Walker - will go missing or be otherwise wasted. Meanwhile, the Pentagon admits it simply can't account for more than $1 trillion.

The controversial U.S. farm subsidy program, part of which pays farmers not to grow crops, has become a giant welfare program for the rich, one that cost taxpayers nearly $20 billion last year.

Welfare programs like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid account for $1.5 trillion. The problem is, making cuts to these programs would affect millions of Americans. A better option would be to reduce benefits for the wealthiest retirees.

Defense spending also accounts for a huge part of the federal budget. In the president's proposed budget, security spending totals $881 billion. $100 billion (waste, fraud, unnecessary weapons)

The Federal Reserve and other holdings within the government own more than $5 trillion of the federal debt.

The New York Times reported that the government loses $1 trillion a year because of income tax loopholes

Lol obama is the one putting us into debt now.

You forgot all about bush eh?

Im reading your post and everything you accuse obama of doing bush did 10x worse a couple years earlier.

Quote:
complaining about bush AGAIN... (its 2011 for god sake)
Are you serious? We shouldnt complain about bush because its ....3 years since he left office?

Are you aware of how retarded that statement is?

Are you aware that the previous president for the most part influences what happens during the first few years of the next presidents term due to policy changes and such? We're still seeing the effects of the disastrous republican presidency today.

Its like people like you have blinders on. Liberals did the same thing when bush was in office as well, so its not just a republican thing. EVERYONE forgets that the previous president has tremendous influence over the next one and starts to blame the next president for the problems of the previous one.

yes, obviously. bush for instance never would have passed universal healthcare.

i hate all politicians, obama not as much though for some reason

maybe its the fist-pump



just look at that shit. so boss.


srsly tho:

i think both bush and obamas hearts are/were in the right place, but bush's presidency was ruled by republican corporate interests while obamas is ruled by liberal corporate interests.

by definition, liberals being progressive and about change, i think liberals are the lesser of two evils by far, but alot of pandering and behind the scenes shit goes on in both parties that is completely against the nature of democracy and is destroying our country.

the sooner we can collectively realize this two party system is bullshit and move on the better

i know i say that in pretty much every thread but so many issues in Washington come down to that simple fact. both parties suck and we need actual real change so the actual real people are represented and not the interests of "the highest bidder."

part of the reason it has turned out this way is because people are so polarizing and partisan. j-wonder's thoughts here represent the thoughts of alot of people, and its silly to me that we're so focused on calling out the other side's shenanigans when BOTH sides have shenanigans going on.

Well, maybe if these tax cuts hadn't happened, the country wouldn't be bonding itself into debt with foreign countries.

Once JFK gets the rich mans hand out his puppet ass, and READS the tax code, I might listen.

Do you believe in the Easter Bunny Don?

What is the word for beyond naive? Way past gullible. Dude are you trolls ever going to just come straight? You have no interest in politics. Just bash the black guy. Come on really. Asking if a junior politico in office two years is anywhere in the same city as the ballpark is verging on retarded. Boosh the elder has been in power since Kennedy. Junior was appointed but still connected to his daddy's umbilical cord. Trying to dismiss it is typical since not a teabog ditzo in the lot ever murmured a word while junior was in office. Or how he got there. Now the ugly cut throat Kochsuckers in plain sight try to gut safeguards with the same bold faced lies they used to start the war in Iraq. Well best put on some seat belts cause I believe even the gullible are seeing this trickle down scam for what it is. Nothing.



Foreign labor and more unemployed Americans. What a suck up. The system is corrupt. Nixon was still pouting and seeking Vengeance on the GOP over Ike's rejection. Boosh was seeking Vengeance over America in general for his childhood memories of his father Prescott trading with the enemy and getting busted. Shamed while his rival Joe Kennedy was getting richer. Junior was raised with 3 brothers all serving daddy. Jeb was appointed governor of Florida just in time for juniors recount. Neil was busted with John McCain scamming seniors life savings in the el dorado savings and loans. With Horowitz, the head of Pacific Lumber clearcutting old growth forest. Marvin the son no one knows was head of security of the world trade towers. His contract ended 9.11.01. So Obama is now taking the focus off the Cheney Haliburton no bid contracts and the Heratage Foundation plans on how to start a war with Iraq is water over the bridge. We have a genuine Afro American to focus on.



You traitors of Liberty make me sick. You sell out the country for corporations that are machines with no souls. You worship the money gods who profit on prohibition and think its somehow no different with obombo. Somethings aren't. But nothing compares the Fascists with the Chicago Daly political factions. Social Security or stealing teachers paychecks while squandering billions on wall street banks, fabricated for profit police actions. Then to top it off you gut the environmental safeguards as a cost savings. Fascist the Nazi's would envy. Hitler may have killed 6 million Jews but it would be a perverted compassion compared to the GOP torturing 50 million Americans health care and wages. Torture Cerebral Palsy patients on entitlements. Criminalizing 20 million Americans with Ganja arrests. Many of them caged were terminal patients. All of them wondering each day if the badges are coming to kick down their doors. Hard to heal with so much stress. This would have ended long ago if not for the zeal of the GOP.



Yes the democrats perpetuate the war. But only after being coerced by the gung ho ho's/ Give it a break. Obombo is weak and succumbs to the threats of the republican fascist wing too quickly. That doesn't equate to being the same. The problem as I see it is not running the rednecks out when they lost the Civil war. I'm puzzled why Americans think its OK to steal the Indians land and try to convert their customs to whitebread wallmart. But Germany and Japan still own their land. Still practice their customs. Now the stoners are kept criminals because every time a democrat tries to stop the dysfunction, a GOP DEAth monger protests. States or Feds, the GOP is against Liberty and hasn't balanced a budget since Ike. Put our kids in debt over boosh profits and you think obombo is the same? With the same straight face your ancestors compassionately gave the Indians small pox tainted blankets over concern for the freezing temperatures. Why is this not crystal clear? Liberals advocate for American people. The GOP neocons advocate for profits. We want food for the poor. You want them to starve. Both Americans yet you worship the money like a machine. The lies are a means to the end.



Or maybe its starting to be... Top of the news past couple days says Governor Vetoes Repeal of Medical Marijuana Law
Vermont Senate Backs Med Marijuana Dispensaries, CA Bill Would Bar Employers from Firing MMJ Users, Delaware: Medical Marijuana Bill Advances, Midwest Proves Fertile Ground for Marijuana Reform, Connecticut Medical Marijuana Bill Advances, Baltimore, M.D. House Affirms Affirmative Defense for Marijuana, Oregonians have consistently signaled their acceptance of marijuana, Arizona Patients Can Grow Their Own for Now, North Carolina Lawmaker Introduces MMJ Bill, One Hawaii Medical Pot Bill Still Rolling, Why New England Has Become The HQ of MJ Reform, Pot growers in New Mexico are suing the state, saying applications to distribute medical marijuana are being approved too slowly.



Obama is a straw man to avoid GOP mass murder for profit. . We should sue the Republicans for flat out lies and thievery! But at least another chance to post some GOPervert stickers....



Obama and 4/20
Obama’s staff has scheduled a Facebook Town Hall on April 20.

Certainly his staff has to know the significance of 4/20. They also know that every opportunity for public questions has resulted in drug war reform being the top question. And if that’s true elsewhere, it’s even more likely to be true on Facebook.

The media is smart enough to make the 4/20 connection.

So is Obama’s staff just stupid? Or do they really want to talk about pot?

Waves, I am disappoint.

The rest of the world dosn't care about your domestic policies, we care about americas foreign policy. In that regard I don't think I could tell the difference, except for a forced mask of diplomacy, which is akin to the bully asking for your money before sucker punching you for it with a thousand rays of lightning.

Do you actually fall for that whole black-guy-down-to-earth gag they put on?

DDC, I'm not sure if you are agreeing with me or what? And if you think I'm bashing some dude because he's black you can fuck right off, that is not the case. You're also sadly mistaken if you think I care for either of the sides in american politics. Capitalism at its core is corrupt and a system that needs to be dealt with swiftly. I don't care who sits at the wheel of america, he's not the driver anyway.

You said Obama was the same as Boosh. Now you say its the system.
Who's system? The Fascist system Boosh created?
Or the Fascist system Boosh created that Obama is now living with?
The Obama admin are appeasers. That means we the people have a say if the GOP and Teabags stop the diversions and denials. But that is how they make their money so I highly doubt it. Like I said its easier for teabog dipshits to just say no than oppose their money masters. Deal with the issues, not the personalities and I might believe you. If you're not a racists then you're in the minority of right wing sheople led by the Wall St. dividends. But then how do we know if you're telling the truth? I guess lumping you in with the Teabags is easier than trying to figure out why you say the same things but tell us you're not one of them?

Do you actually fall for that whole black-guy-down-to-earth gag they put on?

DDC, I'm not sure if you are agreeing with me or what? And if you think I'm bashing some dude because he's black you can fuck right off, that is not the case. You're also sadly mistaken if you think I care for either of the sides in american politics. Capitalism at its core is corrupt and a system that needs to be dealt with swiftly. I don't care who sits at the wheel of america, he's not the driver anyway.
Protip: the first half of my post was completely facetious.

On one level I could give a shit about the rest of the world. I care about my country and whats happening in my country. Those issues take precedent for me. On another level I agree in that America has NEVER been good with dealing with foreign policy. I would rather we NOT play world police but on the other hand I think we really helped out in libya and when we dont have the express purpose of invading a country for their resources we actually MIGHT be doing some good shit in the world.

What specifically about obamas foreign policy dissapoints you?

I clearly said I hate all politicians in my post im not defending the guy. Just saying hes slightly better than Bush in some ways. But its not his personal fault our foreign policy sucks. Are you aware of the mess Bush got us into before Obama had to take over that disaster? I mean that just highlights my point above I said that for the first 2-3 years of any presidents terms the country for all intents and purposes is still running under the previous presidents policies.

What could he personally do differently that would appease you and the rest of the world?

I'm not even american, so why would you equate me to tea baggers? Or any of your political denominations? I think it's easier for you to use these labels becase you can't see the woods for trees.

To me it dosn't matter who (bush, kennedy, clinton, obama) is on the throne, because the system by which they govern (capitalism) is rotten and not suited for humans. Simple as that. As long as capitalism reigns, money will be king, not human dignity, respect for life and enviroment and so forth.

You come off as really crazy DDC, and arrogant. Bad combo. Sorry man.

Waves, mostly their constant intervening in Iraq, Afghanistan, the support of puppet dictators. Oh, and Guantanamo.

I don't think any president could do what I think is right in just 4 years. Too many interrests are tied up in the current world view of the american government. If that makes sense. The unity amongst muslims being a very real concern.

It's always easier for me to have my ideals, and hold everyone accountable.
