That article was priceless. I've never laughed so hard this early in the
morning.Is there anyone in the Democrat leadership that has a clue?
Why are they reliving their days in kindergarten where they had to be told,
"Now, now Barry and Nancy and Harry, we don't tell lies in
Lies scorecard..Democrats 1 Republicans 1,000....oh I give up.
Extremely poor analogy, the right is desperate and they should be, it's
become obvious to the reasonable middle class voter that the GOP is in the
pocket of big business and big business is out to gut the middle class.
Obama has been proven to be born in this nation... the Southern Strategy has
been used for decades. After all, Romney made a welfare-queen like reference
when he suggested the NAACP members who booed just wanting free stuff. And what
about the Republicans (several on these comment boards) calling them racist for
booing? Nevermind that they didn't boo Biden, or the fact that a white tea
party crowd...that was redundant... would heavily boo Obama, because in both
cases it's a political matter not racial.
Although Mitt definitely wanted to show his base he could stand up to the NAACP,
he appeared genuinely surprised when they started booing him. This wasn't
a clever plot by Romney to play on racist elements in the GOP, but it does show
how out of touch he is with many Americans. I think most main stream Democrats
are over this incident. Now about those tax returns..........
So the birther movement, a lunatic conspiracy that has been going on since the
day President Obama announced that he was going to run, is the same as a few
newspaper comments that will be forgotten by next week? A recent poll found that
only 31% of Republicans are sure that the president was born in the U.S.
Thanks for the fun article pointing out the nuts on both political sides. As to
V.P.jokes Repubs had Quayle and now the Dems have Biden.
Romney was "surprised" because the NAACP was rude enough to boo
him...not because he was surprised at their disagreement. Larry, do you
honestly believe Romney is so out of touch as to not know that the NAACP
supports Obamacare? I think even you know he's smarter than that.As for "those tax returns" - releasing anything more than 1 or 2 years
of tax returns is the rare exception; many past presidents only released tax
summaries. So don't go making it sound like Romney is the exception to the
rule; Obama actually was in releasing his modest, politically safe tax returns.
Everyone knows that there is absolutely zero evidence of Romney doing anything
illegal or unethical with his taxes, but releasing them will hand an enormous
pile of gift-wrapped opposition research to the Obama Chicago political machine
to distort to their advantage, as they hav with their obviously shameless lies
about Bain, a nonissue if there ever was one. They even accused him of a FELONY
with zero evidence!
I respect someone who can get boos and standing o's in the same setting.
That tells me he knows what he is talking about and doesn't shy away from
the unpopular, if he plans on doing it. @Bob A. Bohey: I find your
argument "big business is out to gut the middle class" interesting.
Let's say you're right. Big business succeeds in gutting the middle
class. Now, how do those big businesses stay in business now that their
customer base [the middle class] is gone, their employee base [the middle class]
is gone, and their investor base [the 401Ks of the middle class] is gone? Most,
if not all, business owners actually want returning life-long customers, happy
employees, and a decent return for their investors. Businesses that don't
have these things usually go out of business. So, I would argue that even if
big business wanted to gut the middle class, as you put it, the marketplace
(middle class shopping decisions) would remove those types of business from the
market. Unless, of course, they are propped up by a controlling government
because they are too important to that government to fail.
Re:VORYou are factually incorrect.Like all other
citizens, U.S. presidents enjoy this protection of their privacy. Since the
early 1970s, however, most presidents have chosen to release their returns
publicly. In the hope of making this information more widely available, the Tax
History Project at Tax Analysts has compiled an archive of presidential tax
returns.Obama: tax returns for years 2000-2011George Bush:
2000-2007Clinton: 1992-1999HW Bush 1989-1991 (3 yrs)Carter:
1977-1979 (3 yrs)Reagan 1981-1987Ford (released summaries only)
1966-1975Nixon 1969-1972Romney doesnt need to have done
anything illegal.No doubt Romney's returns will provide fodder for
his opponents to use against him, in the great debate about the need for more
tax cuts for the wealthy and the 99% vs 1%. Tax experts, looking at clues from
Romney's 2010 return, believe he very likely paid very little tax in 2009,
even less than the 13.9% he paid in 2010.
sadly just another in a string of the type of childish article and comments that
have come to permeate our political world.
Here's the excerpt from Romney's speech at the NAACP that garnered the
standing ovation:"For every one of us a particular person comes
to mind, someone who set a standard of conduct and made us better by their
example. For me, that man is my father, George Romney.It
wasn’t just that my Dad helped write the civil rights provision for the
Michigan Constitution, though he did. It wasn’t just that he helped
create Michigan’s first civil rights commission, or that as governor he
marched for civil rights in Detroit – though he did those things, too.
More than these public acts, it was the kind of man he was, and the
way he dealt with every person, black or white. He was a man of the fairest
instincts, and a man of faith who knew that every person was a child of God.I’m grateful to him for so many things, and above all for the
knowledge of God, whose ways are not always our ways, but whose justice is
certain and whose mercy endures forever."Mitt, what a shame you
aren't more like your dad....
Obama birth record definitely fraudulent Investigators for an
Arizona sheriff's volunteer posse have declared that President Barack
Obama's birth certificate is definitely fraudulent. Members of
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's posse said in March that there was
probable cause that Obama's long-form birth certificate released by the
White House in April 2011 was a computer-generated forgery. Now,
Arpaio says investigators are positive it's fraudulent. Mike
Zullo, the posse's chief investigator, said numeric codes on certain parts
of the birth certificate indicate that those parts weren't filled out, yet
those sections asking for the race of Obama's father and his field of work
or study were completed. Zullo said investigators previously
didn't know the meaning of codes but that the codes were explained by a
95-year-old former state worker who signed the president's birth
certificate. Zullo said a news reporter who has helped out in the probe let
investigators listen in on an interview he concluded of the former state
worker.So-called "birthers" again maintain Obama is
ineligible to be president because, they contend, he was born in Kenya.Anymore citizenship questions here?.MY VIEWS.
"Now the left is sounding nutty as the 'birthers'"Birthers are not sounding so nutty These days. As of yesterday the now famous
Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County has just disclosed that his research and that of
the Cold Case Posse found the Obama Hawaii birth certificate, provided the world
by the president, is... bogus. Yes, bogus. So, we have, as president of the
United States a foreigner. Heavens to murgatroid! Now what?
I laughed my head off at Kathleen Parker's comments. She was obviously
joking. Nobody could have said what she said, and meant to have it taken
seriously. Thanks for the laugh, Ms. Parker.
@atl134:"Obama has been proven to be born in this
nation..."Have you not read today's Drudge Report? The
certificate is bogus.
And what's so wrong using the word 'Obamacare?' The illustrious
president use the same term.
@liberal larry:"Now about those tax returns..."Yeah, and what about those Fast & Furious documents, the college
application papers, grade transcripts, the SS number application form, huh?
Where are they? For a person who promised transparency as a candidate he
certainly pulled the wool.Oh, I forget. Politicians say what people
wanna hear until after the election.America can't afford to
give this guy a second term. He'll snip the last thread that the
Constitution is hanging by.We need to remember his own words: if he
couldn't fix things he would be a one-term president. Let's take him
up on that.
With all due respect President Obama's mom is an American citizen. No fan
of the President but can we talk about something else like solutions to the
nations problems? That would be too easy.
I strongly recommend Republicans continue to promote the birther conspiracy and
ask for Obama's school records. Most certainly those will be winning
issues. Drudge. Another reliable source--conduit to conspiracy
theorists arguing that 9/11 was an inside job, FEMA concentration camps etc.
