Hi, everybody. Four years after the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes, our economy is growing again and creating jobs. But we have much more to do. Our task now is to build on that progress. Because this nation only succeeds when we’ve got a growing, thriving middle class. That’s what drives me. That’s what I campaigned on for the past year.

Note that the photo with the IBD article is the one with his feet up on the desk. Since Barry´s a closet/cultural Muslim, Malcolm´s just letting us know the real deal--that leave aside the words, that is what Barry really thinks of us poor mooks who knew the election was stolen via fraud, sabotage and scaring stupid women.
OUR lives better? Obama´s is pretty darned good already if last term is any judge: multi vacations, tons of golf, good clothes, hobnobbing with the rich and famous, unlimited food budget, use of planes and very very sporadic comments to Congress re: what HE wants done and then he steps in and takes credit.
There was once an elephant who ran a lucrative massage business. He became so successful that of course his rates went up. They went up so high that of course only the wealthiest could afford his services. He made the rash decision to rob his clients outright as soon as they were disrobed and at his mercy. So long as his clients remained disunited and weak and agreeable they would not stand up to the fact that was a blatant robber...somewhat like present day Americans. Disunited people are easy to coerce. Isn´t that wonderful?
The Obamaphone part of the voter bribing operation has an unusual twist. The free phones program was started by compassionate conservative Bush. When Conservatives come bearing gifts the spending is blamed on them but the credit goes to the liberal and they get the votes anyway. Let this be a lesson for anyone who wants to be dem light to win over their voters. The only solution is to stop compromising the conservative policy and learn to explain it.
Not a chance...you may have stolen the election but I will take any step I can to see you get as little of my income as possible to give to your lazy peeps. My first step: Cease any and all charitable contributions. They voted for him...let him take care of them. Am I bitter? Yes, yes, and yes.
If you can stand it, re-read these 15 paragraphs, then ask yourself - why the heck did it take 15 paragraphs to repeat the same claptrap he slung in the first one AND has been slinging for the last 4 years?
I´m willing to bet that if you asked your middle school child to write an essay about ´working hard,´ ´pulling together,´ ´sharing responsibility,´ etc. ad nauseam, you would get more creativity, higher capacity for critical thinking, better vocabulary, grammar, word usage, subject/verb agreement.
This Harvard Law Review president, best selling author, Pulitzer/Nobel prize winner shows none of the capabilities mentioned above. This man´s intellect is plodding at best. This man mocks us by sitting coatless with his feet up on the desk of our White House.
The phone program was started while Regaen was in office. old phones were donated by people who were purchasing new phones. The old phones were being given to WOMEN who were in battered women shelters. The only number that could be dialed on these phones was 911....no other number could be called and of course there was no such thing as texting. Now we all pay for free obama phones. the cost is on your phone bill. I wonder what would happen if people stopped paying that fee.
I did everything I could to avoid anyone getting anything of my savings..it was very small but its MINE...got rid of it
He is not my president, he is my enemy. What do we teach our children now? Be productive, so that Obama and those like him can put them in permanent bondage to the unproductive? Or should we teach them to make good lives while avoiding doing things that are taxable?
That´s right, suckers, work hard for the collective populated with increasingly more of the slothful stupid. Their demands will increase until your back and patience finally give out. The politclass will confiscate through taxation, family businesses including farms and ranches that supply our food. It didn´t work out too well for the USSR or Zimbabwe but Obama is a different kind of communist. Historic. Post racial. We suckers may want to consider being able to provide our own food and protect it from marauders.
You may remember earlier this year that President Obama, in a fit of pique over Congress actually allowing his sequester cuts idea to take effect, had White House public tours canceled to save lunch money. During the later partial government shutdown, he ordered national monuments "closed," even though most are open-air. Now, comes holiday season in the Obama White House. Although the family travels at Christmas, they go all out for decorations.
Most days here we´re talking about relatively serious stuff -- politics, political maneuvering, political tactics, political speeches, political gaffes, political scandals. Oh, and politicians. Like the Chicagoan currently inhabiting the White House with his mother-in-law while teaching America about his adopted hometown´s chronic style of political ops. We´re all sorry about that. Anyway, today we´re doing something completely different. It's Sunday, which means the National Football League. And it's December, which means the playoffs are shaping up. We're not writing about the games though. We're writing about the show biz side
Merry Christmas, everyone, and hello, my name is Renee Ellmers, and I represent North Carolina’s Second Congressional District. Like many of you, I’m frustrated with the president’s health care law, especially where jobs and working families are concerned. I say this not only as a congresswoman and chair of the Republican Women’s Policy Committee; I say it as a nurse and the mother of a son in college. After all, it’s often women who make the health care decisions for our families. We put a lot of time and thought into these choices and how they’ll affect our budgets. So by canceling your insurance — despite a promise
The holiday season is a time for remembering the bonds we share, and our obligations to one another as human beings. But right now, more than one million of our fellow Americans are poised to lose a vital economic lifeline just a few days after Christmas if Congress doesn’t do something about it. Our top priority as a country should be restoring opportunity and broad-based economic growth for all Americans. And yesterday, we learned that our businesses created about 200,000 jobs in the month of November. That’s more than 8 million new jobs in the last 45 months. And the unemployment rate fell to its lowest level in five
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
You may have noticed over these past 2,501 days that Barack Obama likes to give speeches, sometimes two or more a day. It´s better than Oval Office work. And yesterday the poor guy gave a particularly revealing one. He´s so desperate now that he modestly likened ObamaCare to the suffrage struggle and civil rights. [Snip] But here´s the largest challenge for Obama´s ObamaCare: He must ensure 40% of all enrollees are under 35 and willing to pay huge premiums for coverage they really don´t need. In the scaled eyes of our nation´s community organizer, that´s a kind of civic patriotism.
As everyone knows, California is the la-de-dah, laid-back land of liberalism that´s been Barack Obama´s political ATM for six years. Hollywood stars have loved him, fronted multi-multi-million-dollar fundraisers for him. The most populous state (home to 12 of every 100 Americans) has a Democrat governor again, two female Democrat senators and a Democrat super-majority in the state legislature that has yet to find a problem it didn´t want government making worse at great cost. In presidential politics California has been trending Democratic since 1992. [Snip] Now comes a stunning new poll revealing Obama’s California base has fallen out of love.
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
