  • Certainly not the current one. The only thing obama ever ran was his mouth. (Perhaps erazor can come to obama's aid and help run one sixth of the American economy. Don't hold your breath.)

  • They will show once and for all that obama graduated from clown school where he met his wife.

  • In other words America, it's your fault. How dare you speak up about this evil "religion". This is not surprising considering it comes from a guy named Hussein.

    Unaffordable Care Act

    If you like your 212% increase, you can keep your 212% increase. obama said so.

  • AFFORDABLE CARE Act? I don't think so.

  • Federalist ^ | December 2, 2014 | David Harsanyi

    In a chilling 2010 column, Paul Krugman (lib loon economist) declared: “peak oil has arrived.”

    So it’s really not surprising that the national average for a gallon of gas has fallen to $2.77 this week – in 10 states it was under $2.60 – and analysts predict we’re going to dip below the two-dollar mark soon. U.S. oil is down to $75 a barrel, a drop of more than $30 from the 52-week high.

    Meanwhile, the Institute for Energy Research estimates that we have enough natural gas in the U.S. to meet electricity needs for around 575 years at current fuel demand and to fuel homes heated by natural gas for 857 years or so – because we have more gas than Russia, Iran, Qatar and Saudi Arabia combined.

    With prices returning to ordinary levels and a few centuries’ worth of fossil fuels on tap, this is a good time to remind ourselves that nearly every warning the Left has peddled about an impending energy crisis over the past 30 to 40 years has turned out to be wrong. And none of them are more wrong than the Malthusian idea that says we’re running out of oil.

    As Steven Chu explained in 2008, “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.” .. Obama conceded he favored a “gradual adjustment” in this direction. ... But after six years of trying, we learned that the laws of economics can’t be circumvented. Which is great news for consumers, bad news for progressives.

  • Despite–or perhaps because of–the outrage of the obama administration and left-wing Democrats in Congress, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Likud party continue to surge in Israeli polls, reaching their widest lead of the election thus far, according to a Jerusalem Post/Maariv Sof Hashavua poll. The poll, which shows Likud leading its closest rival by four seats in the 120-seat Knesset, is the widest lead that the Likud has enjoyed leading up to the Mar. 17 election.

    In addition, the Post notes, “For the first time since Netanyahu initiated the election on December 2, the proportion of respondents saying they want him to remain prime minister was higher than those saying they want him replaced, 46-45 percent.” The Likud surge is reflected in other polls. Of six polls released in the past two days, according to Jeremy’s Knesset Insider, four show Likud in the lead, one shows it tied with ZIonist Union, and one shows it behind by one seat.

    Netanyahu and the Likud received a boost during the border clashes with Hezbollah last week. However, the controversy surrounding Netanyahu’s speech before a joint session of the U.S. Congress next month seems to be helping him as well. While Democrats have charged Netanyahu with seeking to use the speech to boost his election prospects, the Israeli press has focused on alleged efforts by former obama aides to use U.s taxpayer funds to promote Netanyahu’s political rivals.

    A researcher from the influential Heritage Foundation estimates that the cost to U.S. taxpayers of obama’s pending grant of amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants will be “around $2 trillion.”

    So said Robert Rector, senior research fellow in the Domestic Policy Studies Department at the Heritage Foundation, in a November 24 interview. “The net cost — which is total benefits minus total benefits paid in — of the amnesty recipients I estimate will be around $2 trillion over the course of their lifetime,” said Rector. He added, “What [obama] is doing is he is putting these 4 million people — who on average have a 10th grade education — into the Social Security and Medicare programs.”

    Rector estimates that these illegal immigrants who will be protected from deportation by obama’s decree will, over the course of their lifetimes, receive three dollars’ worth of benefits from government programs such as Social Security and Medicare for every dollar they pay into them.

  • Wow, three meetings to figure out how to punish a white cop for acting in self defense. When was the last time the clown had three meetings to figure out how to help the middle class? Oops, the middle class includes a lot of white folks. No need to go there, huh barry?

    obamacare program costs $50,000 in taxpayer money for every American who gets health insurance, says bombshell budget report

    Stunning figure comes from a Congressional Budget Office report that revised cost estimates for the next 10 years
    Government will spend $1.993 TRILLION over a decade and take in $643 BILLION in new taxes, penalties and fees related to obamacare
    The $1.35 trillion net cost will result in 'between 24 million and 27 million' fewer Americans being uninsured – a $50,000 price tag per person at best
    The law will still leave 'between 29 million and 31 million' nonelderly Americans without medical insurance
    Numbers assume obamacare insurance exchange enrollment will double between now and 2025

  • Nice job, lib loons.

    Inland Valley Daily Bulletin ^ | February 17, 2015 | Jon Coupal

    In the 1930s, tens of thousands of farmers, mostly from Oklahoma, fled the Dust Bowl for California with hopes of a better life. Today it is ironic that California’s Farmers (Farmer Brothers coffee company, that is) has announced that it is fleeing California for a less expensive destination that includes Oklahoma on the short list. Any humor, however, will no doubt be lost on the 350 employees who are about to lose their South Bay jobs paying $40,000 to $80,000.

    Farmer Brothers, a fixture in California for more than 100 years, is just another of a long list of firms that, fed up with California’s high taxes and anti-business environment, have left for less costly states. Other recent refugees include Chevron, Nestle, Sony, Charles Schwab, Occidental Petroleum, Toyota, Campbell Soup, Nissan and Comcast, all of which have moved all or a significant portion of their work force out of state.

  • Yet, you won't see a real union in a foreign communist country. Why is that?

  • Islamophobia in America. Of course, this is what you expect from a guy named Hussein.
    The National Review ^ | February 6, 2015 | Ryan Lovelace

    The number one issue at obama’s private meeting with Muslim leaders on Wednesday was the rise of Islamophobia in America, not the threat of Islamic terrorism, according to sources in the room with the president.

    Comedian Dean Obeidallah wrote that he attended the event and found the main topic to be discrimination against Muslims by their fellow Americans. “In fact, it was clearly the No. 1 issue raised: The alarming rise in anti-Muslim bigotry in America,” Obeidallah wrote for the Daily Beast. “My point was that while bigotry from certain Republicans is nothing new, I’m alarmed about the Democratic response to these comments. What is the Democrats’ response, you ask? Simple: silence.”

    It's frozen solid. Perhaps a couple rail cars full of carbon dioxide will warm things up, assuming of course, the rail cars stay on the tracks.

    The frigid winter has gotten even colder for Hussein obama.

    President “selfie-stick” just got a snapshot of his troubled Affordable Care Act and it’s starting to resemble an unaffordable debacle.

    The latest snafu: Some 800,000 Americans who got their plans on the technologically toxic Healthcare.gov were given incorrect tax forms and will need to “amend” their filings. Don’t worry though, the correct forms are coming ... in March!

    Bad news if you’ve already spent your refund. By the way, you’re going to need that refund because anemic enrollment means fewer dollars in the pool and that means premiums will go up, up, up. So much for the “Affordable” Care Act.

    Just days after filming a bizarre, celebratory video with Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell in which the clown lauds robust obamacare enrollment numbers, the administration has also called for a do-over so that an undisclosed number of Americans can sign up, for real this time, and avoid the tax penalty. They’ll have until April 30th to learn to love obamacare and fall in line.

    “It gives you some sense of how hungry people were out there for affordable, accessible health insurance,” obama boasted in the short video during a performance worthy of an Oscar nod tomorrow night.

    “The Affordable Care Act is working.” Really?

    It’s working in much the same way the New Coke worked. Not at all.

  • The more you lie, the more likely you will be an anchor on a MSM newscast. It becomes a competition. Eventually, whoppers are being tossed around like frisbees on the beach. They all know they are lies but could care less. Gotta become an anchor, ya know.

  • They actually believed obama when he said you can provide more health care to more people for less money. It's time for erazor to come forward and admit his stupidity! LOL

    obama fans are desperate to finally be able to say something positive about the clown. So, part time jobs and temporary jobs give them something to celebrate. Meanwhile, 50 million remain on food stamps.
