    Romney Will Work with Both Dems & GOPs, Obama It's Democrats or The Highway- Results Nothing Much Done

    It's Time for Real Hope and Change with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

    Obama's way of governing, "It's My Way or the Highway", this has led him to become a outstanding failure as President of the United States of America.

    Obama has proven himself a big failure by not working with Democrats and Republicans to get something in Washington done.

    American people, do you want a president who tells you what you want to hear and then does it his way?

    President Obama is gifted when it comes to reading a teleprompter, but when it comes to making a decision or being a leader he is a dismal failure.

    Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have the knowledge and judgment to direct our country and economy in the right direction instead of the tax-and-spend way in which we are going now. For two years President Obama had a Democratic Senate and House. He passed everything he wanted including his health care bill. He could have passed a bill on immigration reform too, but that was not his top priority. Obama has gone against our Constitution many times. The Senate has not come up with a budget in three years. The House came up with a budget, which the Senate would not ever discuss. President Obama finally came up with a ridiculous budget that even his own party would not vote for.

    This latest debacle in the Middle East should never have happened if President Obama had done his job and beefed up security instead of hobnobbing with the "rich and famous" on the campaign trail. Obama and Hillary Clinton lied to the American people (one of many times) by telling us it was the video that made this reign of terror in the Middle East.

    A great deal of American pray every day that Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan with a Republican-controlled Congress will be our hope for the future when they are elected into office.

      Obamacare law contains 20 new or higher taxes on American families and small businesses–
      WASHINGTON, DC – Obamacare contains 20 new or higher taxes on American families and small businesses. Arranged by their respective effective dates, below is the total list of all $500 billion-plus in tax hikes (over the next ten years) in Obamacare, where to find them in the bill, and how much your taxes are scheduled to go up as of today:
      Taxes that took effect in 2010:

      1. Excise Tax on Charitable Hospitals (Min$/immediate): $50,000 per hospital if they fail to meet new “community health assessment needs,” “financial assistance,” and “billing and collection” rules set by HHS. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,961-1,971

      2. Codification of the “economic substance doctrine” (Tax hike of $4.5 billion). This provision allows the IRS to disallow completely-legal tax deductions and other legal tax-minimizing plans just because the IRS deems that the action lacks “substance” and is merely intended to reduce taxes owed. Bill: Reconciliation Act; Page: 108-113

      3. “Black liquor” tax hike (Tax hike of $23.6 billion). This is a tax increase on a type of bio-fuel. Bill: Reconciliation Act; Page: 105

      4. Tax on Innovator Drug Companies ($22.2 bil/Jan 2010): $2.3 billion annual tax on the industry imposed relative to share of sales made that year. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,971-1,980

      5. Blue Cross/Blue Shield Tax Hike ($0.4 bil/Jan 2010): The special tax deduction in current law for Blue Cross/Blue Shield companies would only be allowed if 85 percent or more of premium revenues are spent on clinical services. Bill: PPACA; Page: 2,004

      6. Tax on Indoor Tanning Services ($2.7 billion/July 1, 2010): New 10 percent excise tax on Americans using indoor tanning salons. Bill: PPACA; Page: 2,397-2,399

      7. Medicine Cabinet Tax ($5 bil/Jan 2011): Americans no longer able to use health savings account (HSA), flexible spending account (FSA), or health reimbursement (HRA) pre-tax dollars to purchase non- prescription, over-the-counter medicines (except insulin). Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,957-1,959

      8. HSA Withdrawal Tax Hike ($1.4 bil/Jan 2011): Increases additional tax on non-medical early withdrawals from an HSA from 10 to 20 percent, disadvantaging them relative to IRAs and other tax- advantaged accounts, which remain at 10 percent. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,959
      Tax that took effect in 2012

      9. Employer Reporting of Insurance on W-2 (Min$/Jan 2012): Preamble to taxing health benefits on individual tax returns. Bill: PPACA; Page: 1,957
      Taxes that take effect in 2013

      The Largest Tax Hike in US History has just been upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States and President Obama sees this assault on the middle class as a victory.
      The already unpopular 2010 health care reform law has been converted by the court into a $1.76 trillion tax increase funded by escalating taxes to be paid the vast majority of taxpayers. The high court’s ruling leaves in place 20 tax increases in the health-care law, of those, 12 tax hikes would affect families earning less than $250,000 per year, including a “Cadillac tax” on high-cost insurance plans, a tax on insurance providers, and an excise tax on medical device manufacturers.

      By formally converting ‘Obamacare’ into ‘Obamatax,’ the court allows Obama to raise taxes on the middle-class.
      The decision is a distressing blow to taxpayers and represents the single largest tax increase on young people in the nation’s history. When it takes full effect, the Internal Revenue Service will have immense new power and authority to persecute and prosecute a whole new group of taxpayers.

      If the law takes full effect, it will devastate small businesses and destroy any chance for a sustainable economic recovery. It will add trillions of dollars to the national debt and push the country toward bankruptcy even faster than current projections. Any individual who believes that this decision must be overturned must do everything possible to undo the damage that has been done, especially at the ballot box on November 6.

      Yeah, when he won he said "elections have consequences." Then proceeded to tell the GOP to screw, he was elected to CHANGE America, i.e. implement socialism (his interpretation)

    • Mega Liar and Coward President Obama Says He Had Not Been Aware of Prior Security Requests from Diplomats in Libya. False - Look Hillary Clinton, Obama in many others in the Situation Room watched for many hours as our men got killed. He did not send help because his re-election was more important than saving these four men. They did nothing, just watched and now lie, much excuses.

      President Obama said that he had not been aware of the requests for additional security made by security officials in Libya before the deadly attacks on U.S. diplomatic posts in Benghazi. The fact is he lied. “I was not personally aware of any request,” the president told radio host Michael Smerconish. ”We have an infrastructure set up to manage requests like that but we’re going to find out what happened. Ultimately though any time there is a death of an American overseas I want to find out what happened because my most important job as President is to keep the American people safe.” He is a dirty lying coward as far as I am concerned.

      As ABC News has reported (HERE and HERE and HERE and HERE for example), myriad requests by security officials on the ground in Libya for additional manpower or resources were denied by the State Department. He let them die, veterans unit and vote him out of office.

      The president pledged that his administration would “get to the bottom of what happened and most importantly we will make sure that those who carried it out, that they are captured.” He is a DAM LIAR

      You can listen to the whole interview HERE.

      The president said that his preference for the killers of Ambassador Chris Stevens and the other three Americans would be to “bring them to justice” rather than to kill them. ” My efforts will be to see if we can roll up these networks who do harm to Americans anywhere in the world,” he said.

      Smerconish noted that the official narrative about the attack had changed – from a spontaneous protest outside the consulate that got out of hand to a planned terrorist attack – and noted a Wall Street Journal report that the president’s daily briefings between September 13 and 21 affirmed that the attack had been a spontaneous protest. He asked if it was true that the president’s statements and those of others in the administration including U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations were merely repeating what the PBD’s were telling them.

      “What’s true is that the intelligence was coming in and evolving as more information came up,” the president replied. “And what is true, and this is something that the American people can take to the bank -is that my administration plays this stuff straight; we don’t play politics when it comes to
      American national security.”

      He continued, saying that what “we have recently done throughout my presidency and what we did in this circumstance is as information came in we gave it to the American people and as we got new information we gave that to the American people. And that includes by the way members of American Congress, so one of the things that always frustrates me about this town is when people go out there and try to politicize issues despite knowing that we have given them all this information.”

      Since Mitt Romney, as a major party presidential candidate, has been receiving intelligence briefings since September 17, presumably they would include some of the same information provided to the president, Smerconish wondered it it was therefore “disingenuous” for the Republican to have been making “political hay in terms to the shifting narrative?”

      The president took the question as an opportunity to criticize Romney for the critical statement he issued while the Benghazi compound was still under attack.
      “He certainly understood that when our diplomats are still under fire, not just in Benghazi but around the world -in Cairo, Pakistan, etc. — that if you aspire to be commander and chief you don’t release a political press release,” the president said. “You don’t have a political press conference that tries to take advantage of that opportunity, that is so reckless that even members of your own party criticize you for it and I think that what’s fair to say is when people look at how I’ve dealt with national security issues is we’ve made tough divisions even when it wasn’t politically convenient.”

      Smerconish wondered if in the third debate “perhaps the reason he (Romney) took a pass at the first question that pertained to Libya and Benghazi is because at that time he knew his own briefings, like yours, reflected the belief initially that the protests spawned the attack?”

      “Well, I’m not sure that Governor Romney was necessarily constrained by facts that he had received,” the president said. “Truth is that during the course of this campaign he hasn’t been restrained by facts much, period. I do think that they probably got a sense that the American people understand how I’ve operated over the past four years. The American people trust that I make decisions in a straightforward, steady way not in a reckless way and not in a political way. And I just don’t think that was getting a lot of political traction for them.”

      The president said that “I take full responsibility for the fact I sent these folks into harm’s way. I want to make sure that they are always safe and when that doesn’t happen we figure out what happened and make sure it doesn’t happen again. My biggest priority right now is bringing those folks to justice and I think the American people have seen that is a commitment I always keep.”
