New Obama Slogan: They’ve Added An Exclamation Mark

New Obama Slogan - They've Added An Exclamation Mark

Nashua, NH – The new Obama slogan isn’t exactly what you’d call heavily revamped from the old Obama slogan.

Previously, supporters of the president could wave banners and placards declaring, ‘Forward‘ (see above). Now, with under ten days to go until election day, the signs read, ‘Forward!’

That exclamation mark was added by the president’s campaign team earlier this week and is presumably designed to whip up Obama supporters into a voting frenzy.

The new Obama slogan arrived just in time for a 40-hour campaign marathon by the president, who was set to blitz key battleground states over the weekend.

Obama spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said the campaign had boosted the slogan in a bid to reflect “the stakes in this election and energy at our events.”

Furthermore, the pumped-up punctuation will now remain in place for the rest of the campign. It made an appearance in New Hampshire over the weekend as a crowd of 6,000 turned up at an Obama rally.

Here’s the sign in “action”:

New Obama Slogan - They've Added An Exclamation Mark 1

When the more stoic “Forward” slogan was first rolled out in April, some media outlets noted how the word had a historic link with socialism and Marxism. Predictably, this led to much hysterical screeching about how this obviously meant Obama was the new Chairman Mao or something.

Although a punctuation mark is unlikely to change the minds of many GOP voters, it may succeed in firing up those who intend to vote for the president. Democrat voters, does the new Obama slogan fill you with a near-pathological urge to go vote for your man?

    My Thoughts.. 53 years old and never went to school. So any one given me some info is appreciated as long as there right with facts.. But Me brought up 2 kids with out entitlements given to me and they was brought up knowing they would have to pull there own weight. and when this President gives things away w/o teaching or labor for what they receive from Government hands out only teaches our kids and then there kids and so on and on that people start thinking Government owes them when in fact there taking the years that me put in for selfishness for there on greed and lazy ass.& this President is not only a Coward but a Socialist to the weak word of a communist. Again I am not Smart but still a patriot and tuff love builds respect you cant buy respect.

    "I spend a lot of time in executive offices and board rooms, and they are good Republicans who would like to see Romney win," said Laszewski. "But they are scared to death about what he's going to do."

  3. Randy Pogue

    Why this is NEWS is beyond me. How is a sign with a! any different? Obama still hasn't put forth any kind of plan for the Next 4 years. This President pretty much conceeded Florida today to Romney in canceling a huge Rally in Orlando with President Clinton. Early voting polls showing Romney leading 51% to 45%. Obama is now shifting away from FL to other battleground states. Now the Des Moines Register endores Romney. The first time in 40 years that Democratic Paper has endores a Republican Candidate. MITTMENTUM just keeps on rolling over the Obama campaign.

    Why would we want four more failed years? "Marxist Forword" would be more correct. Who will he blame when he loses? We arn't to concerned where he was born, it's where he lives now.

  5. Michael Lenox

    I think it was done so some printer (who donated money to the campaign) had something to do. They must have run out of the old signs.

    You sound smarter to me than 90% of Amrericans today Scott, nice to see an old school American still exists re: values, morals etc…, thumbs up to you!

  7. Stephen Veverka

    Ok damn it, they are still talking about Libya, I’ve used voter suppression, women birth control rights, illegal’s being able to vote because the republicans hate them, I’ve used the rice people should pay there share, and still they are talking about LIYBA and four dead Americans. Well let’s try and put an exclamation mark after forward maybe that will side track the voters and get them off of talking about how I screwed up the LIYBA thing.

  8. Trudie Boccadoro Lear

    already voted for Obama. Mitt can't tell the truth ever since he accepted the nomination to run. I don't have any idea where or what his plan is for recovery. With Obama, things are getting better each day and I think we are going FORWARD! If these extremists are so concerned about Obama's being a Muslim or a Socialist, why hasn't Obama shown some evidence of playing out to these extreme policies in this first term? They don't have a proverbial leg to stand on….

  9. Ed Gaddy

    Scott, I agree. You have the kind of smarts that so many with degrees do not. It's called life smarts! Anyone can go to School and that is a good thing. But one thing that no book can teach you is, common sense. That, life and exposure to it is how you learn that. It is a constant process. I am older then you and did go to college. I learned more in the Army and on the "Street". You realize, what so many with "Educations" do not. Obama is a salesman and what he is selling would make the plants grow. Absolute fertilizer. You are also right about the Socialist Marxist observation. The slogan "forward" was a slogan coined by Karl Marx for the whole socialist Communist movement. It is the name of the Socialist Party Magazine in Germany. A magazine founded by Frederich Engels and Leon Trotsky. They were Marx's disciples. Between Obamacare and the way he side steps everything Constitutional you are right there too." Wait until after the Election when I don't have to run again, I'll have more flexibility then". Obamas own words overheard on a microphone he didn't know was on. To the President of Russia! Anyone who votes for this liar, is going to deserve what they get. Oops is no way going to cover it. Honor your Country, Honor those who fought and some died to give us the freedoms we have. Vote this guy out!

    Scott Downer sorry but you are an idiot dear. What are you talking about? The cold war is over and you are precisely what is wrong with this country and people like you… Socialist? Pull your head out of your you know what! This country was on the verge of an economic downfall when he FIRST got elected…. WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? Please up your meds and go night night dear…. just because you are old and bitter does not mean the rest of us are drinking your kool-aid! Moving forward!

    Obama and his "Gimme somethin' FREE" voters. Disgracefull and pathetic voters supporting a proven incompetent phony! He has had a chance and he really, really blew it….to the disgrace of a lot of racially motivated voters who were hopeful people that voted for him. A vote for Obama is a vote AGAINST the United States Of America.

    the feds were the reason for the economy in the Great depression as well as it is today .. they let Technology over surpass Humanity and the Leaders funded the hand out"s of entitlements because they lost control of the labor of the Nation

    @ Trudie Boccadoro Lear, thanks for the vote to keep the unemployed, unemployed and on food stamps. To all you Obama supporters, I saw a bumper sticker this weekend that should have been out for the past for years and Romney's slogan: NOPE! – 2012!

    WAKE UP CALL FOR CHRISTIANS! WAKE UP CALL FOR CHRISTIANS! At the democratic convention they removed GOD, then booed HIM after a vote to bring HIM back! Do you really want to side with people like that? FELLOW CHRISTIANS, Do you really believe Jesus would be happy with people that are trying to get rid of him? The democratic convention is just the tip of the iceberg. They have removed Him from the schools , replaced by a theory that we are creatures with no souls, and the miracle of creation was just an accident. Crosses on display have been forced down, military Chaplins been told how they can pray (no longer in Jesus name), Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas, etc. etc. etc.

  28. Randy Pogue

    Yeah he was in Vegas at a Fundraiser and was probably to concerned in offending his Celebrity donors. What happened in Libya is totally preventable. Did anyone see that the Admiral of the Mediterrain fleet was relieved of his command yesterday? Can you say scapegoat? There was a full Delta group on his Carrier. A simple go order would have saved those people. America needs a President that has the Balls to make the tough decisions.

  29. Patrick Denier

    I prefer the way Mitt Romney renamed the obama sign as 'Not, Forward, but Forwarned".

  30. Belinda OrtegaKlein

    Maybe, he didn't send anyone in because he didn't want to start WWIII. He didn't react for a reason. I do think he should have provided support beforehand, but he didn't. I just don't get this President. If we had elected someone like Clinton or even Reagen we would not be in the trouble we are in now. He doesn't know how to lead.

    Scott Downer, you are very wise despite not going to school.

    Shane Hudson Try getting an education…There are plennty of jobs out there. You just lack the qualifications…. that' Obama's fault.

  33. Belinda OrtegaKlein

    Ahh, what happened in Libya is important,and the President and his administration is not above questioning "on why he and his administration " didnot provide the protection these Americans needed. As far as your claim that illegals can't vote; well, they can't. It is against the constitution. Only American citizens can vote. I don't know of any other country in the world which would let a person not born or naturalized vote in their system. IT has nothing to do with hate. Oh, "Obama" is running out of political statements, I see.

  34. Randy Pogue

    Belinda- I'm 22yrs retired military. There is a creed we lived by. What concerns me the most is the US had the assets in theater and were unwilling to use them.

    Sorry Bridget Mann, dear, but you are the idiot. Obama had the past 4 years to follow through with a "plan". He didn't have a plan THEN, and he doesn't now either. Now go pick up your welfare check, DEAR.

    Yep… An exclamation mark is about all I would expect from Obama. Must have taken weeks of "think tank" work to come up with it.

  37. Belinda OrtegaKlein

    Well, good you voted your conscience. I just can't get a handle on why President Obama did not protect those people in Libya. As far as Obama being a "Socialist", I guess his medical policy will prove that. Also, all of his government contributions to Green energy hasn't not helped this perception of him being a socialist. Good luck with this country in the next four years. It is going to be tough going!

  38. Susan Michelle Kirkland

    Well Linda, thats awesome. I too have a job that I didn't have in 09. But, ask your kids what they think about their future, the fact that they may go to college, get in debt and be unable to find a job or pay it back, or become a working citizen who when they turn of age, inherits a $50,000 something tax bill automatically because we continued to vote irresponsibly. Its not about us anymore, its about the future of this country and the future that our children and grandchildren will inherit.

  39. Raymond Bass

    No "entitlements" ? Wow…. and to think that you can read and write and spell, even though you never went to school (good thing too because all schools [even "private "ones] receive government help and are considered an entitlement by some.) Learned to read and write through Osmosis, did you ? You never traveled on a public road either, I assume, because that is provided by the government…. never dealt with the police in any capacity, the fire department, either ? I say again, wow !

    Actually, I should change my reaction to MOM (that's wow upside down) — because you need to go back to Moma and have your mouth stuffed with soap, and to school to learn to face reality.

  40. Susan Michelle Kirkland

    I would argue with you Trudie, but you already voted. I just pray two more voted for Romney to cancel your vote out and to put Romney ahead. You obviously have no clue about the Muslim or Socialist regime. It has been out there, and there is plenty of evidence. Obviously, you just are not smart enough to comprehend.

  41. Raymond Bass

    I'm convinced. Put two exclaimation marks and we might forget that the word actually is included in tons of socialist and Marxist writings. In short, the criticism about the slogan is real and true. So, perfume that pile!

  45. Gary P. Grubbs

    What you Rommaniacs need to focus on is your candidate. I have already voted and I voted "Green" but I have paid attention. How do you call Obama a coward? Where is the heroics of Mitt Romney. I am 1 day older than his and spent 4 more years in uniform than he did. He has not even served his country with his business or money. He has flip flopped like a mullet on dry land and comes across just as cold. It is you that are the cowards refusing to see. My candidate stands no chance of winning but best represents an ideology I can support. I hope your candidate doesn't win either simply because of your idiotology because his ideology is not stable.

    you are stupid , out of touch and denial, if you believe flopney, romnesia can do better, romney was one o the worst gov MA ever had. the eonomy is recovering, i live in MI and i can see it everyday, if you can't see that then , You need to do more research. the economy of MA was growing at 1.5% when romney was gov and he is criticizing obama while our economy is clearly recovering. MA was ranked 48th out of 50 states in job growth when romney was gov. Stop watching fox news and educate yourself. If romney becomes president , he will just benefit from the obama recovery for the next 4 years.

    Romney is going to deliver recovery not dependency? lol. Like Bain Capital investing government money, people money, into 22% of companies that failed, but turned around and slammed Obama's 8% of green energy losses. How hypocritical. Corporate welfare is okay? Poluting our environment, water, air, and food is okay? You know we have it a new low when the poor is to blame for the troubles of our government brought to us by corporate government crooks like Romney.

  59. Scott Downer

    Raymond Bass A Smart president would care about the age gap of people we need to be educated to the times we are in now . We have lost our spots of Labor and need to be retrained not handed Aid but reeducated . And President Obama does not know how each state needs to Regulate there own laws not Government. One size does not fit all states or liberty's and entitlements take away your freedoms and regulates how you eat and live ! Sets Limits !!

  60. Jean A Wilson

    Why WOULD Obama choose a slogan such as "Forward." or "Forward!"? This is a slogan used by the Nazi's Hitler and many other Marxist/Communists before, during, and after the Hitler Regime Take Down! Is Obama just NOT that far away from reading all his "commie" textbooks", that he's forgotten this, OR, He really don't care because it's intended?

  61. Bruce Carlson

    Ed, I am naturalized citizen I have very limited education and I worked hard all my life raising 6 children.
    Never believed in hand me down.
    All of my Six Children are University Graduate. Sadly to say all of them chosen Obama as their
    president. Sometime I feel real bad they can't see how bad our country is we are behind in the world of education and technology. They can not see even after 4 years of Obama failing economy.

    All they ever think that Republican party is going to take away the women's right, the social assistant to needy. I wonder if they know that Regardless who is the president in this country welfare will always be there. Such a propaganda on this is very disturbing.

    All also they see Bush went to war, They don't know at the time that we are facing terrorist that not afraid of killing anyone is in our country 3000 of them in one day.

    Saddam Husein is big support of Muslin in Asia, He did have Weapon of Mass destruction,
    He killed over 250 thousand his own people with mustard gas.
    It Take the United Nation forever to investigate. By then all of the chemical moved to Syria.
    If it was given a change Saddam would bring it back. and he will not hesitate to used it.

    Saddam Hussein was Angry with America because We liberated Kuwait when Iraq invaded their country. . Scud missile is being use there, I wonder if young people knows this rather that Bush went to war.

    Beside Bush did not went to Iraq on his own he had 23 allied, and approval from Democratic congress.
    I don't like War, I live through it. But I will be not here today if Japanese government did not surrendered.

    Most off all they don't see it even with the wars Bush in 8 years spent under 5 trillions dollars and Obama spent over 6 trillions dollar. How is this OK?

  62. Nancy Stanson

    Romney's companies have been "dependent" on grant funding provided by our government. Isn't that funny what a liar he is. God must be so proud of the Republicans blaming the poor like Jesus. Do any of these people really read the Bible and get it?

    Linda Baron Levine….AND? The REST OF THE STORY? My 401(k) goes up and down. I would assume that yours did so also? My rate of return since inception (2 decades or more)? About 2%. The rate of return for social security investments? A little over 5%. For railroad retirement which invests in other than government securities? Something over 16%. Who is stealing from us if railroad retirement can net 16% compared to Merill Lynch or the feds?

    My health care? I must pay $200 per month OVER AND ABOVE what the premiums are. IN ADDITION, I am now required to pay the first $200 in charges AND next year it will be $400. ADD TO THAT a new 5% surcharge on all services that is charged IN ADDITION to the co-pays (WHICH INCREASED). Yep, Obama care sure took care of me.

    Judging from your picture you are no spring chicken (neither am I). The older you get the less you get layed off (sometimes the opposite occurs). I was laid off in 1981 (Carter's legacy) and the begining of Reagans. In 1986 I finally got recalled (Reagan year). I could have made "entitlement collector" my job but chose not to.

    Obama wants to increase that infamous 47% to higher levels with expanded benefits. With free cell phones, $10 high speed internet (they want to make it free), free dental, free healthcae, free eye care, free rent, free prescriptions, free heat, free food, free room and board, free tuition, free WIC, free methedone, free abortions, free contraceptives, free this and free that what else can he provide? Free toilet paper demands are all the rage during online discussions for this important "necessity".

    His sign SHOULD be changed to CHARGE! That is what he is doing. Spending like there is a bottomless pit of cash. There IS a bottomless pit of debt. How do you run YOUR finances? Within your means or like a lowlife scum spending like a fool who can't wait to file for bankruptcy?

    diesstro12 Democrats formed the Feds & the feds were the reason for the economy in the Great depression as well as it is today .. they let Technology over surpass Humanity and the Leaders funded the hand out"s of entitlements because they lost control of the labor of the Nation.and if you was in the Military then you know health care was paid by every military person inlisted and with 350 million people and only an 1/8 of them paying into entitlements will bring this country in to a poverty Nation and Bring the worst of people not the best

  65. Scott Johnston

    The Obama slogan should be: Listen to what I tell you, do not listen to anyone else, do not look outside, do not believe anything you know to be true. For that is the only way I can be re-elected. It is a little long winded, but then again, so is he.

  66. Tom King

  67. Nnamdi Small

    Trudie youre absolutely correct. People are so crazy first to think because the government helps we are socialists. Obama didnt start any of these programs and no one was a socialist back then when they began. I guess a vote for Romney and a loss in jobs while he bankrupts and tries to flip the nation is a vote in the right direction. This land is full of easily swayed people. See Obama's record vs Romney's. I see job creation vs a job outsourcer. China will be our new best friend under Romney cause he will send all our jobs there. Way to go, count my vote for Obama with yours. 4 more years and those who dont like it can "self deport" like their champion Romney suggests.

  68. Nnamdi Small

    Its called executive priveledge. It's in the constitution. You and Trump should try reading it sometime!

    Show me any other President in history having to undergo so much scrutiny. 4 years later and we are still questioning his citizenship. America has issues and Donald Trump has led you sheep down a silly path. The wolf Romney is there waiting for your vote. With his 1 year published tax return.Where are the last 4 years that we asked for, oh wait, they hide his finances. Why isnt Trump asking to see those, probably cause he benefited from Bain as well. Get a clue folks!

    The Obama campaign apparently didn't look backwards into history when selecting its new campaign slogan, "Forward" — a word with a long and rich association with European Marxism.
    Many Communist and radical publications and entities throughout the 19th and 20th centuries had the name "Forward!" or its foreign cognates. Wikipedia has an entire section called "Forward (generic name of socialist publications)."

    Yeah it should be "Marxist Forward". Why can't people see that he is really only out to destroy The U.S. He wants to take away our nukes, decrease our military so small that we won't be able to defend ourselves and eventually tax our income 100% so he can give the muslim and socialists countries a leg up to be able to destroy us. These are Obama's dreams, the dreams from his father and he wants to finish what his father wasn't able to do. The bad thing is too many americans are believing his lies. Wake up people and see what Obama is really all about before it is too late!

NO and neither are all those people who lost their jobs and I mean all, not just those who are receiving unemployment, our jobless rate would be so much higher if the true numbers were told.

    Forward! to do what he planned on all along…From Sunday's 07 Sept. 2008 11:48:04 EST, Televised "Meet the Press" the THEN Senator Obama was asked about his stance on the American Flag.
    General Bill Gann' USAF (ret.) asked Obama to explain WHY he doesn't follow protocol when the National Anthem is played.
    The General stated to Obama that according to the United States Code, Title 36, Chapter 10, Sec. 171…
    During rendition of the national anthem, when the flag is displayed, all present (except those in uniform) are expected to stand at attention facing the flag with the right hand over the heart. Or, at the very least, "Stand and Face It".
    NOW GET THIS!'Senator Obama replied:
    "As I've said about the flag pin, I don't want to be perceived as taking sides". "There are a lot of people in the world to whom the American flag is a symbol of oppression.." "The anthem itself conveys a war-like message. You know, the bombs bursting in air and all that sort of thing."
    (ARE YOU READY FOR THIS?)
    Obama continued: "The National Anthem should be 'swapped' for something less parochial and less bellicose. I like the song 'I'd Like To Teach the World To Sing'. If that were our anthem, then, I might salute it. In my opinion, we should consider reinventing our National Anthem as well as 'redesign' our Flag to better offer our enemies hope and love.It's my intention, if elected, to disarm America to the level of acceptance to our Middle East Brethren. If we, as a Nation of warring people, conduct ourselves like the nations of Islam, where peace prevails – – – perhaps a state or period of mutual accord could exist between our governments……"When I become President, I will seek a pact of agreement to end hostilities between those who have been at war or in a state of enmity, and a freedom from disquieting oppressive thoughts. We as a Nation, have placed upon the nations of Islam, an unfair injustice which is WHY my wife disrespects the Flag and she and I have attended several flag burning ceremonies in the past".
    "Of course now, I have found myself about to become the President of the United States and I have put my hatred aside. I will use my power to bring CHANGE to this Nation, and offer the people a new path. My wife and I look forward to becoming our Country's First black Family. Indeed, CHANGE is about to overwhelm the United States of America ".
    Yes, you read it right.
    I, for one, am speechless!

    Executive orders in place as we speak, and that we know of , will turn our democracy as a sovereign nation into a total DICTATORSHIP it's total authoritarianism and high treason! The stage is set and they are looking for a reason and or , will create a reason to implement martial law.This means ALL of our rights and freedoms will be suspended until the president sees fit to give them back, but see.
    , he's NOT going to. The United nations is his master.Executive orders he has already signed and bypassed congress to do so is traitorous , and unconstitutional.He now has the power to, in a martial law situation, to CONTROL all transportation including our OWN personal vehicles.To ration as the government see's fit food , water, and virtually every aspect we need to SUSTAIN LIFE.Takeover of internet communications, all phones and ANY AND ALL forms of communication! Foreign troops are being trained on our soil as we speak to handle the incredible chaos , backlash, and total mayhem the systems break down will induce.THE COLLAPSE OF THE DOLLAR IS SOON AT HAND! There is estimated to be a small group of even our own troops who will just follow the orders to disarm and recondition the American public that government is good and we are bad.The rest of them swore to defend America from enemies foreign AND domestic, and are already committing to their oaths to uphold the CONSTITUTION! Their plan is to, when this whole thing hits the fan, to post at all retail outlets that have any kind of survival supplies, including GAS stations.This is the plan, everyone will eventually run out of supplies of their own, and when we have to go out to get more supplies that they will be rationing, you will be asked to bring your personal weapons in order to get ANYTHING and if you're answer is "I don't own any weapons, then you will be automatically presumed a LIAR and will be taken to the nearest F.E.M.A. facility to be RE-EDUCATED, into loving your government and that self reliance is wrong and a PUNISHABLE offense.It is so sad that this whole thing boils down to color, that is TRIVIAL compared to what the United Nations has planned for the WORLD if they are successful in this NEW WORLD ORDER PUSH.We are not the nation we were before we have been sold out GLOBALLY, and all of the debt we are in, everybody WE OWE is coming for their new property which is very soon to be the land of scared and home of the N.W.O. slaves!

    Oh almost forgot, those that do not comply will eventually be KILLED, by means of starvation like Hitler did and when the Antichrist REVEALS himself, those whom don't take the r.f.i.d. chip ,"which will be the new currency and the new healthcare system", will then eventually be beheaded by guillotines that are already on our soil and foreign and DOMESTIC troops that will comply are being trained to.
    behead ANY RESISTORS! This is revelations coming true it IS the Bible fulfilling itself! Argue that I'm wrong all you like, but GOD said it I believe it and it's been corroborated time and time again thru the army's own briefing and all of the documentation on their website including whitehouse.org and the defense departments own previously declassified briefings and manuals.Ya'll better get a clue!

  83. Richard Hermer-Fried

    Hey Scott I think you and the rest of your racist friends that support an evil manipulative business man over a president that knows how government and congress work are completely incompetent douche bags. The reason why the economy tanked is because of the capitalistic nature of our economy. And the Chinese and other countries who are more capitalist and higher functioning than ourselves are taking advantage of all our regulations and employee protection. Maybe you should actually take act over fiction. Its our fault we are in this whole and not the government. This is how our government has always been, but when you believe entitlements are the cause of the economic collapse and not the banks loaning money to people like you, or having wars that cost 88 billion dollars a day at one point than you are a moron. Get an education this is coming from a 17 year old New Yorker. Where at least half of us have a brain. Better than any other state.

    Thanks for your support, Nnamdi Small The responders above you obviously are so far right they can't see the forest for the trees. The USA is the LAST major nation to provide affordable healthcare. If they want to keep paying big bucks to their insurance companies, then let them. The insurance cos have actually embraced the new plan and are already in place to implement, Any action to repeal it will be costly as they will have to return to the policies of yesterday and retrench their dollars, thereby forwarding the cost onto us. As for Libya, Each President has a crisis as such and each has to wait until all evidence is in. I think of Reagan's Iran Contra issue here. Right now, the economy has been steadily improving with job growth and housing starts reigniting to the best level since Bush brought this house of cards that he helped to create and collapse. Also, I am a woman who wants to have control over my own body and not have some old man tell me what I can and cannot do if I need medical assistance and that would include an abortion. But I do not push abortion, I only want other women to be able to have that choice, as awful as it is. thank you all, I just wanted to respond. and please, if you are going to respond, throwing persona insultsl is not the American way.Nor is it the way of Jesus… Cite some specifics for us. Give us facts. Nothing will ruin America more than outsourcing jobs and keeping our money in foreign banks like the Romneys..And where are those tax returns?

    Hey David that was pretty good, but I know who he will blame if he loses, Bush!! And IF and that is a huge IF he wins again, I would be curious if he still would continue to blame bush when he has no one to blame but himself. He wouldn't be able to blame Bush in the next 4 years, but knowing his evil socialist ass, he would, he is such a narcissist! (sp) he can NEVER BE WRONG OR THE ONE TO BLAME!! Personally I can't stand him or his ugly big assed American hating wife!!

  100. Mick Sturgill

    Scott, it's hard to understand where you are coming from. We have a president who's leading us out of the great recession created by Bush and the Republican Party. He said he would end the war in Iraq and he has, and the other war will end in 2014, both wars caused by Republicans. The auto industry has been saved, Romney said "let Detroit go bankrupt." The Seals killed Osama bin Laden on the Presidents orders. We were the only major country without universal health care, because of him we have it now. He wants all young people to have an opportunity to attend college and be able to pay for it. Romney/Ryan want to cut Pell Grants making it more difficult to get an education. In Romneys own words he said he didn't care about 47% of the American people. You do know, I hope, he was talking about people on Soc. Sec., people in the military and people making a small annual salary. I'm a 70 year old white male recovering from lung and prostate cancer and Medicare has been a life saver for me and that puts me in the 47%. I know Bush almost caused this country to go under, and the Romney/Ryan plan is copied off of George Bush. I'm hoping you will go "FORWARD" with me and vote for Obama.

  101. LaVerne Velasco

    As far "BACKWARD" as the little MUSLIM PUNK and LIAR has taken us, the only way now is, forward. There is nowhere else to go. What a CHUMP your half-breed president is. I am not prejudice, he is.

    Shane Hudson I feel bad for all like you. The spending will stop when more jobs become available. This is a long slow process but it is happening. Our society is used to having everything now. This is not going to happen with the jobs market. It takes time to build or retool structures. It takes time to make the machinery used in new workplaces. Bush was given 8 years to screw things up. I would think it will take twice as long to recover. Ask anyone who has overextended themselves with credit card debt and paid it off how long it took.

    Scott Downer My thoughts. For you to be 53 years of age and not know how to proficiently spell tough… I must say discredits your entire thought process. I don't know where you gathered your information from, but please clarify when you speak on Obama giving anything away? Lol. The most I have seen him giveaway is the chance to sit front row election night if you donate some money. And technically that's not free. Let me guess.. You rather let Romney take away from the Middle Class, without him having earned a dime of his money through blood, sweat, and tears. Surely as a patriot you know about that. Not because he worked hard and earnied it like most of us, but to put other companies in a deficit and cause them to go bankrupt? SURELY NOT! I personally like "Forward!" I would rather go forward to go backwards, which is the route we will go if Romney is elected….

  116. Lindsey Johnson

    Randy Pogue And I'm sorry but you obviously must know something we do not… But um what plan has Romney put forth for next 4 years if he is to become President? If someone knows the details please let me know because I have yet to get them from the presidential nominee himself…

Let's get to the real issue……you dislike his opinion of Obama. A lack of formal education does not mean someone has less intelligence, and formal education doesn't make an idiot and genius……obviously.

Mitt also committed tax fraud by having Caymen Island bank accounts – avoiding paying his fair share. Mitt was born with a silver spoon in his mouth never having to work an honest day in his life. Not one of his sons have served this country. How could a man work in business for years and not know one qualified woman to hire? Mitt Romney believes women are second class citizens.

Although it's safe to say that Obama hasn't lived up to his promise we're not sure who Romney even is! It's one thing to have an opinion but another to have a misinformed one. If you sincerely feel we're in worse shape than 4 years ago I'm very sorry to hear that. Is it the governments job to fix our lives anyway? I say exercise you're right to vote but remember that Romney plans to use 80% of the Bush administration and is open about that. So if he does get elected the next 4 years could be even worse.

Today his campaign said that he would NOT cut FEMA. Of course he is saying he would not cut FEMA now…especially in a time like this where Hurricane Sandy is present. As I have said before…the people who vote for Romney you deserve everything that is coming to you. Enjoy.,-)

When you have a President who only creates public sector jobs thats wages are paid by the taxpayer, the middle class will slowly but surely get wiped out. You need to look at the reality beyond your own selfish nose.

    Obama and Romney are one and the same. Vote for Governor Gary Johnson. Research this legitimate candidate, who had a two term run in New Mexico, took their debt of 500 million and turned it into a 1 billion surplus, will be on the ballot in 48 states, will balance the budget in 2013, cut spending 43%, bring our troops home from Afghanistan, and be cool on a lot of social issues as well. We are so divided as a country now. A fiscal conservative and social liberal, Gary is the middle ground our country needs. Don't listen to the polls or media; most of them don't mention Gary, not because he isn't around, or that there aren't a lot of Americans voting for him, but because he doesn't fit in to their agenda.

    Obama acts of preferentialism for Islam:

    •May 2009 – While Obama does not host any National Day of Prayer event at the White House, he does host White House Iftar dinners in honor of Ramadan.

    •April 2010 – Christian leader Franklin Graham is disinvited from the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer Event because of complaints from the Muslim community.

    •April 2010 – The Obama administration requires rewriting of government documents and a change in administration vocabulary to remove terms that are deemed offensive to Muslims, including jihad, jihadists, terrorists, radical Islamic, etc.

    •August 2010 – Obama speaks with great praise of Islam and condescendingly of Christianity.

    •August 2010 – Obama went to great lengths to speak out on multiple occasions on behalf of building an Islamic mosque at Ground Zero, while at the same time he was silent about a Christian church being denied permission to rebuild at that location.

    •2010 – While every White House traditionally issues hundreds of official proclamations and statements on numerous occasions, this White House avoids traditional Biblical holidays and events but regularly recognizes major Muslim holidays, as evidenced by its 2010 statements on Ramadan, Eid-ul-Fitr, Hajj, and Eid-ul-Adha.

    •October 2011 – Obama’s Muslim advisers block Middle Eastern Christians’ access to the White House.

    •February 2012 – The Obama administration makes effulgent apologies for Korans being burned by the U. S. military, but when Bibles were burned by the military, numerous reasons were offered why it was the right thing to do.

    Many of these actions are literally unprecedented – this is the first time they have happened in four centuries of American history. The hostility of President Obama toward Biblical faith and values is without equal from any previous American president.

    Written by Dr. Milton R. Wolf, a cousin to obama.
    “They’ll turn us all into beggars ‘cause they’re easier to please.” So goes a Rainmakers song. Beggars also are easier to control. Just ask the drug dealer. It is not compassion that motivates him to give away the first hits of heroin for free; it is the promise of control.
    President Obama wants to give you free stuff. Lots and lots of free stuff. At least, he’d like you to believe it’s free. Free health care. Free welfare checks. Free food stamps. But as the saying goes, free stuff or freedom: Choose one.
    As any teenager knows, you don’t escape mom and dad’s rules until you pay your own bills. Some say our overbearing government is similarly paternalistic, which is insulting enough but simply untrue. Good parents prepare their children for independence, whereas Mr. Obama wants to increase Americans’ dependence on his government.
    Consider the pernicious nature of Mr. Obama’s deeply rooted hostility toward individual achievement: “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” A rationale for confiscatory taxes? Certainly, but it’s so much worse.
    Mr. Obama’s notion that government, rather than people, creates prosperity is not only an insult to every hardworking American, it is the subversion of the individual. If your success is the result of someone else, then you are nothing more than an expendable cog in the wheel. On a fundamental level, you no longer bring value to society other than taking up the space government provides you. So long as your rulers build roads and public schools, Mr. Obama claimed, you could be replaced.
    As antithetical as this is to the American ideal — and to common sense — it gets worse. Much worse. Mr. Obama is actively attempting to sabotage the middle class by turning it into a group of beggars.
    What exactly is the middle class?
    Classes cannot be defined by some arbitrary income number, as politicians like Mr. Obama and his magic $250,000 would have you believe. What of the billionaire who opts to take no income for a year or the low-income family that realizes a one-time windfall by selling a farm? Neither suddenly changes class.
    Instead, class structure is best defined functionally. Here’s how: The middle class consists of those who can take care of themselves if they keep working. Those in the upper class may choose to work but in reality don’t need to do so. Those in the lower class, for a host of different reasons, cannot take care of themselves. Mr. Obama is strategically targeting the middle class for elimination by forcing its dependence on government and, one by one, squeezing Americans down into the lower class.
    Consider Obamacare. Despite his false promises, since President Obama has taken office, health insurance premiums have increased by more than $2,300 per family per year. But not to worry, Mr. Obama wants to give you free stuff! Obamacare provides “assistance” — in reality, welfare — to families earning up to $88,500 a year. Let that sink in. In Mr. Obama’s worldview, even families earning twice the nation’s median income should receive welfare.
    Consider Mr. Obama’s new welfare rules. In 1996, President Clinton and a Republican Congress implemented welfare-to-work requirements. It worked astonishingly well. Welfare caseloads dropped 70 percent. The American dream was restored for nearly 9 million Americans who worked their way out of poverty. Mr. Obama, however, prefers dependency and recently gutted the work requirements. More free stuff!
    The rise of the Obama welfare state is unmistakable. More than 100 million Americans are receiving some form of federal welfare: an astonishing 1 in 3 Americans. An unprecedented 1 in 6 Americans — 45 million — are on food stamps. A staggering 23 million are unemployed. This is a train with too many cabooses and not enough engines but that’s exactly what the food stamp president wants. After all, cabooses just quietly go wherever they’re told.

    Just remember obama’s word's.
    "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam".
    This statement taken from obama’s 2012 UN speech, again his way of not crossing that personal line of his to speak out against fanatic Islamic militants…ever…yet these very same Islamist study and follow the quran, which states, Jesus Christ..was not the Son of God…but a messenger, just as he wasn't the ONE to bring about the ressurection and glory of the Father….he was but a tool…Verse 171….
    So according to muslim's, Christ is not the way…and as follower's of Christ, we are not worthy of life, or liberty…or the God given freedom's we hold dear in Amercia.
    So what is obama trying to tell us, that OUR American Christian society, born of the will of men, by the grace of God….isn't worth the blood spent to protect, honor and live as peaceful being's on this planet as long as muslim's dictate what religion is…obama's religion…this clown lying muslim president, is doing exactly what has been manifest for thousands of years in the middle east…mis truth's, division and indoctrination of Islam into all societies, yet our American society, for the sake of the ignorant..
    Free stuff, all this "free stuff", obama promises, was paid for by someone…and it sure wasn't obama’s money that paid for it, this mindset is happening in these predominantly muslim countries to give just enough, to keep the people at idle, never progressing, just having enough to sustain life, all the while those indoctrinating this hateful, ignorant mindset are getting rich…just as obama is doing here, he’s no different than those selfish muslims , supposedly in leadership positions, that care nothing for educating woman, enacting progressive humanitarian programs, sharing the wealth or using international aid to actually help those it was given for.
    Follow the money…it will lead to the truth, or start practicing reading from the right, and living by "sharia law"…..America survives today because its core principles are based on the grace of God, not mohammed. Our freedom's are under attack, and too many American's are hurting in such a manner they can't see the forest for the tree's…this divisive monster called Islam is coming to America…and barack hussien obama is holding the door wide open…free stuff…for the ignorant.

    Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
    The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't like the Obama's?
    The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I've made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas.
    Part II
    And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother's death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father's military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel. His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement – as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.
    I don't like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.
    Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.
    It is my intention to do all within my ability to ensure their reign is one term. I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.
    As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, "Nero In The White House" – "Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood… Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement – while America 's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed."

    The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't like the Obama's? Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama's? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture."
    The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I've made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't like Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
    them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
    I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama's raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.
    I don't like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress. I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan's made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish. His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
    Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama's have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.
    I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able too be proud of America. I view that statement and that mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.
    I have a saying, that "the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide." No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.

    "That exclamation mark was added by the president’s campaign team earlier this week and is presumably designed to whip up Obama supporters into a voting frenzy."
    Translation: A frivilous and emotionally charged addition to Obama's 2012 campaign slogan is deviously designed to whip up moronic Obama supporters into an even more mindless voting frenzy and keep them that way.

    A $1 Billion government contract was awarded to Brazil company, Embraer instead of American company, Hawker Beechcraft Corp. The contract would be to build the AT-6, an attack aircraft. If this contract was awarded to Hawker Beechcraft, they say they could have created "1400 jobs at 181 companies in 39 states". But by awarding the contract to Embraer, only 50 jobs will be created in the US. But it is not just the 1400 jobs but all the economic activity (products and services) that need to be doled out in order to build the aircraft. And the taxes that would have come back to the country. And the people that could get off unemployment.
    Instead. The money is funneled out of the country. Our trade deficit grows. People forced to stay on unemployment.
    We should not be outsourcing national security jobs. First of all, Brazil has ties to Iran. Second of all, if we are going spend money on defense, those jobs should be created in the US.
    One possible explanation Tait Trussel of FrontPageMag gives for the decision is this:
    But what is the most important reason for all this boot-licking of Brazil? It seems more than coincidence that multi-billionaire ultra-leftist George Soros —Obama’s biggest campaign contributor– owns part of Brazil’s Petrobras oil giant and, as well, just happens to have connections with Embraer through Harbin-Embraer Aircraft, a Chinese-Brazilian joint venture, and Hainan Airlines , in which Soros owns a significant stake. Aha!
    His contention is that the Obama administration wants to make George Soros richer…
    This move goes against each of the following six aspects.
    1. Jobs
    2. Budget deficit
    3. Economy
    4. National security
    5. Trade deficit
    6. Outsourcing
    The story was first reported on December 30, 2011 about Embraer winning the contract but on January 5, the deal was put on hold because Hawker Beechcraft is protesting this with a lawsuit.
    “Hawker Beechcraft deserves answers as to why it was excluded from the competition two months ago,” Roberts said. “On every turn, the Air Force has denied the company and the congressional delegation the opportunity to understand why it made the decision. If the Air Force wants to taut transparency in this selection process, it can start with briefing me and my colleagues Congressman Mike Pompeo, Congresswoman Jenkins, and Senator Jerry Moran as we have been in regular contact with the Air Force and the General Accounting Office since Hawker learned of the decision. We all deserve answers.”.

    To the editors: "In April 2009, I sent President Obama and the New York Times a letter titled "You Scare Me" because, as a candidate, he promised to "fundamentally transform America." Now, after observing his performance for over three years, he no longer scares me – – he terrifies me for the following reasons:
    FIRST: He has done more to damage America’s standing in the world, to lower the standard of living in America, to impoverish future generations, and to shake our faith in the country's future than any other American president in history.
    SECOND: With a compliant Democrat congress, a lapdog media, and a weak, almost nonexistent Republican opposition, he has shattered the American dream of job security, home ownership, and rugged individualism for millions of Americans and has poisoned and divided our civil society with his politics of envy, class warfare, race warfare, and religious warfare – – which he is using as fundamental building blocks for his 'socialist' agenda.
    THIRD: Culturally, he remains totally out of touch with traditional American values. This has absolutely nothing to do with race or where he was born, rather it has everything to do with where, how and with whom he was raised, schooled, educated, trained, and associates with – – still today.
    FOURTH: He has surrounded himself with naive academicians, lawyers, politicians, bureaucrats, and socialist leaning czars who arrogantly think and behave exactly as he does. People who offer no balanced suggestions, or devil's advocate positions, and think in lock step with him that big government is the answer to all our problems.
    FIFTH: He not only encourages, but aids and abets the unionization of all American industry, the albatross around the neck of the free market. In turn, they provide the money and muscle to intimidate his opponents.
    SIXTH: He has increased the national debt by over 30% in just three years. If re-elected, and this rate of increase continues, America will be burdened with an unsustainable 20 trillion dollar debt which will result in the country's financial death. Recovery will be impossible – America will be the Greece of 2016.
    SEVENTH: Given his fanatical beholding to the 'environmental' and 'man-caused global warming' fringe, he has deliberately discouraged U.S. fossil fuel exploration and production, while wasting billions of tax payer dollars on solar, wind, and algae experiments. He refuses to accept that oil, gas, and coal are not America’s enemies, they are America’s assets – – which, properly managed, could make us energy independent within a generation.
    EIGHTH: He views the U.S. as a power in retreat which abused its World dominance. Therefore, he systematically apologizes round the world. This past March, he whispered to Russian President Medvedev – – "This is my last election. After my election, I will have more flexibility". Just what is the secret that Obama and Putin are concealing from the American people until after the election? With what other leaders has he made similar secret agreements?
    NINTH: And finally, after all his miss-steps, bad decision-making, poor management, and zero leadership, the fact that he has the audacity to seek re-election should terrify every American.
    I predict that if re-elected, future historians and political interpreters will look back at the eight-year period 2008-2016, and conclude "the 44th President of the U.S. allowed the takers to overpower the payers, which resulted in the greatest economy in history vanishing from the face of the Earth". Farewell America, the World will really miss you!"

    Remember these?
    I bet Obama is counting on you to forget them by the time this election rolls around.
    “I promise 100% transparency in my administration.”.
    “I promise NO NEW TAXES on a family making less than $250K a year.”.
    “I will allow 5 days of public comment before I sign any bills.”.
    “I will remove earmarks from PORK projects before I sign any bill.”.
    “I will end Income Tax for seniors making less than $50K a year.”.
    “I’ll put the Health Care negotiations on CSPAN so everyone can see who is at the table!”.
    “I’ll have no lobbyists in my administration."
    "I'll close Guantanamo."
    "I'll resign if I don't cut the deficit in half by the end of four years."
    "I'll unite the people of this great country."

    Definition of Obama advocates…….
    The only thing that happened in this country is people got lazy, tired and sick of lies…so there's absolutely no room for trust…hence the ignorance flows as if there's no end to it…your living proof of this.
    To many of you have tired of taking personal responsibility for yourselves, instead, you’ve allowed for this foolish sinister muslim fraud of a man, called obama, to achieve the office of POTUS on your watch and you all must enjoy getting plucked.
    Sorry you all can't come up with reasonable communication's regarding negative posts against obama clown…it's kind of hard to advocate for a man that really has done NOTHING for three years and you can't prove otherwise. That's why when someone posts an opinion or verified fact of this clown's waged war on this country, you all divert this intended definition or content away from logical communications.
    It's always this way with ignorant people…they have no clear understanding of reason…just selfish greed…and the worst part is, you have no idea of what your detrimental action's are doing to America….or you just don't care.
    Either way, supporting a man who systematically deceived the American people, buried this country in so much debt we won't see the rim of our financial canyon for 50 years.
    Our unemployment rate is at the highest it's been continuously for three years, yet you've talked yourselves into the fantasy wherein it's really not your problem anymore….you get your check…right?
    This fool obama's immigration policies are jokes to the world, that's why America has become the dumping ground of mexico, cuba, and any other socially handicapped nation's…throw away's…but he see's these people as recipients’ for socialism and welfare…"we'll take care of you", "these people in America have too much and need humility brought upon them"…right ….barack hussein obama!
    Most of you sheep don't even notice this clown is stealing your children's dreams , since it seems we have a generation of brain dead, protesting, disallutioned, selfserving procrastinator's that quit dreaming and started vegging…being reliant on this make believe government of free stuff….because it's far too much trouble to care or work.

    Your buddy, the muslim obama, counts on just that, lazy ignorant, selfserving American want to be's…for his Socialist America…where you NEED his free stuff…because he doesn't want you to work!

    Well if you had job's… were successful in business….took personal responsibility for yourselves and your future….then you won't NEED this fool obama, then maybe then, you'll realize what being an American is all about.

    Obama IS a socialist at heart. His history of hanging out with socialists and communists as well as his muslim teachings when a young man are part of the man He stated in his writings that he sought out people of Socialist and other radical leanings in college. His association with rev wright and his radical socialist/ black liberation theology teachings for 20 YEARS show his leaning to this teaching. His redistribution scam is part of the socialist theory also. Take from the rich and give to the poor and class warfare show what he wants. Obama is anti capitalistic about Business and tries to make large companies look like demons. He is not a strong supporter of small businesses either. He wants the largest government to support us instead of American's going for the American dream of Working to get rich. Obama is not who we need in the office of president. He said it himself. IF I don't do what I have promised in the first 3 years I will not deserve a second term. He doesn't. In light of 4 years of his failures, lies and fiasco's, Obamacare, Vacations, Golf trips, Gaffs Fast and Furious and now his failure to lead and defend our people in Benghasi Obama should resign and leave America as far as I am concerned! He iks a disgrace to the office and the American people! He can take his Jester in the V P syit with him too! Biden has not done his job, though he tried famously… Be the biggest idiot Obama could find as VP to make Obama look good!

    What I find sad, is that people are blind. For all of Romney's faults, he is a builder, and yes sometimes you have to fire people to rebuild. that is what we need. We need to cut these entitlement programs that are killing us. Who do the Libs and moochers think pays for all this free stuff they get? Now after SANDY all of our funds need to go to rebuild, that is what Government is for. However we are broke because of entitlements. If Obama wins it will be the last time in 50 years there will be a democrat president. His policies combined with the costs of Irene and Sandy will bankrupt the US of A. I will bet my life that 4 years from now we will be so messed up that people would prefer North Korea over the USA..Very Sad.

    "My number 1 rule: I never believe anything the government tells me."
    "Republicans care about you until you're born; once you're born, you're on your own. They don't want to hear from you, no food stamps no health care no education no nothing, until you reach… military age, then you're fine, you're just right, you're just what they've been lookin' for. Republicans want live babies they can raise into dead soldiers."
    "'Sanctity of life,' makes you feel special, doesn't it? To believe that — somehow — life is sacred? But look at what we kill! Flies and mosquitos? Because they're pests! Chickens and pigs? Because we're hungry. Lions and tigers? Because it's fun! We're very selective with where we think life is sacred, AND we get to kill the rest. You never see a bumper sticker that says 'SAVE THE TUMORS' or 'I BRAKE FOR ADVANCED MELANOMA'" -George Carlin.
