    My 32nd video on reelection slogan forward, personally tired of slogans and rhetoric. The problem is that they don't care, meaning Democratic Party. My little way of poking at stupidity.

    There is lots of talk about the "fiscal cliff" the U.S. faces at year end, as stimulus and tax cuts go away... For 59 out of the last 60 weeks, the weekly jobless numbers have been revised, after the fact, always in the same direction: higher. That's unheard of... The Bureau of Labor Statistics says the unemployment rate is dropping, and fell from 10% in October 2009 to 8.2% now. That’s got the White House and media pundits saying an economic recovery has taken place, and that the President’s stimulus bill, which cost more than $750 billion to date, has...

    FREEPers and their opinons ^ | 5/2/12 | SoFloFreeper
    Posting this in chat, because it is just an observation. I would love to hear other's opinions. The years following 9/11, I recall the media and liberals (the same, I know) worry ferociously about whether or not we were "creating more terrorists" by fighting against terrorism. Remember "enraging the Arab street" and other lines? I notice that line of thought has been noticeably LACKING in the lapdog media when it covers the current Oval Office occupier's continuation of the BUSH policy... In other words, no one seems to be concerned that we have turned Osama bin Laden into a "martyr"...
  • Obama's Afghan trip: 14,000 miles for brief remarks lacking one crucial word

    As usual with this president, Obama's trip to and speech from Afghanistan had way more to do with politics than any real substance. Seven thousand miles, one way, is a long journey to share war remarks with countrymen that he should have and could have shared back home many months ago. Despite the administration's best backgrounding sales efforts, the document he signed with Afghan President Hamid Karzai is a meaningless basic agreement to talk later about forging a real agreement. Nothing was essentially changed by what the media lovingly called his "secret trip" to the war zone, which was simply...

    Presidential Proclamation -- Loyalty Day, 2012 LOYALTY DAY, 2012 BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA A PROCLAMATION More than two centuries ago, our Founders laid out a charter that assured the rule of law and the rights of man. Through times of tranquility and the throes of change, the Constitution has always guided our course toward fulfilling that most noble promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve the chance to pursue their full measure of happiness. America has carried on not only for the skill or vision of history's celebrated figures, but...

    Commentary on: http://youtu.be/JsrSAqRrCc0 President Obama is a great campaigner, a fact that cannot be denied. But, to parade the Killing of Bin-Laden around as if it's the Stanley cup is in bad taste and his poll numbers will soon reflect this faux pas. President Obama's was given proper due at the time of the Bin-Laden operation. It was, in fact, a tough decision, but not so tough that others (Mitt Romney) are incapable of coming to the same decision as implied in the video below. http://youtu.be/BD75KOoNR9k When asked after the raid "who fired the shot", the SEAL's replied "assume we all did"....

    American Thinker ^ | May 2, 2012 | Edward Olshaker
    Despite the life-and-death issues at stake, the Obama campaign has begun a re-election effort based largely on Rule 5 of Saul Alinsky's Rules for Radicals: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon. It's hard to counterattack ridicule..." The reason is simple: personal attacks and mockery worked so well in reducing Sarah Palin to a negative caricature that any formidable opponent now automatically receives the Palin treatment from the Obama camp and its obedient media. Ideally the two campaigns would agree to avoid such attacks, yet it's already too late. The Obama team is eagerly collecting Romney's alleged gaffes, and has begun...

    Shortly before his untimely death, conservative commentator Andrew Breitbart vowed that during the current election cycle, President Barack Obama would finally be vetted. Sadly Mr. Breitbart is no longer here to keep that promise and the mainstream media continues to obfuscate our Candidate-in-Chief's past, but others are taking on the task of digging up the truth. This week the buried facts concern Mr. Obama's college transcripts and an alleged incident with his 'New York girlfriend' Genevieve Cook described in detail in his autobiography.

    We often hear people say "hold your nose and select the lesser of the two evils". However, if we look at the bigger picture, which is really the lesser evil of the two? 1. Obama for 4 more years and teach the GOP the lesson that they evidently didn't learn in 2008. 2. Romney for 8 years, assuming he doesn't hand it back to the Democrats in 2016.

    Why are taxpayers forced to underwrite a loan for the producer of a $107,000 toy vehicle for the wealthy, the majority of which is assembled at a European auto plant? Two weeks ago Republican Sens. Charles Grassley of Iowa and John Thune of South Dakota askedEnergy Secretary Steven Chu those and some other pointed questions about his department’s decisions, in granting a $529 million taxpayer loan guarantee to Fisker Automotive, a luxury electric car manufacturer. The politically connected automaker has stumbled a number of times in delivering its six-figure Karma to market, with two recalls related to battery defects,...

    It was only for 14 seconds, and one might question the appropriateness of joking about a government plot that has resulted in hundreds of deaths in Mexico, and two dead federal agents, but comedian Jimmy Kimmel is now one of the few people to have publicly referenced the "Project Gunwalker" scandal in President Obama's presence. This was Saturday night, at the White House Correspondents' Dinner (see sidebar video): Even some of your fellow Democrats think you’re a pushover, Mr. President. They would like to see you stick to your guns, and if you don’t have any guns, they would like...

    (CNSNews.com) – West Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin said he is not endorsing President Barack Obama for re-election, saying the president “has apparently made it his mission to drive the backbone of West Virginia’s economy, coal and the energy industry, out of business.” Tomblin is running for re-election in the heavily Democratic and major coal-producing state this year. He won a special election for the governorship last year after Gov. Joe Manchin was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010.

    Washington Examiner ^ | May 2, 2012 | Joel Gehrke
    Dan Rather, the former CBS anchor, argued that the reaction to President Obama's trip to Afghanistan yesterday shows that Americans are "too tough" on him and presidents in general. "I think we are [too tough]," Rather said on Morning Joe when asked. "And we can see it and hear it today in the reaction to President Obama's appearance last night in Kabul . . . I think we are too tough on our presidents." He added that sometimes Americans "aren't tough enough on our presidents," who can receive "too much leeway."

    Thursday, May 3, is an annual observance set aside by Congress as the National Day of Prayer. It is a day for Americans to seek God’s guidance and blessing upon America and its leaders. On this day millions of people from coast to coast will pray to God on behalf of this nation individually or in prayer services. However, before we pray, it would be wise for us to review the conditions that were set by God in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and...

    One of the more mysterious characters from President Obama's 1995 autobiography Dreams From My Father is the so-called 'New York girlfriend.' Obama never referred to her by name, or even by psuedonym, but he describes her appearance, her voice, and her mannerisms in specific detail. But Obama has now told biographer David Maraniss that the 'New York girlfriend' was actually a composite character, based off of multiple girlfriends he had both in New York City and in Chicago. "During an interview in the Oval Office, Obama acknowledged that, while Genevieve was his New York girlfriend, the description in his memoir...

    Every time I listen to Barack Obama describe how he repelled down a rope from a stealth helicopter on a dark Pakistani night and took down Osama Bin Laden I am reminded of the movie "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance." Seldom has a story been more dishonestly spun than the one surrounding the death of Osama Bin Laden. Barack Obama is celebrating the deathday of Obama Bin Laden with a party from himself. I caught a post over at Weekly Standard in which Dan Halper notes that the smirking Obama once again suggests that Mitt Romney would not...
