Obama: I reversed recession until ‘bad luck’ hit | Campaign 2012

The Federal Election Committee refused to stop, or prosecute, that credit card donations were flying in from the Middle east in amounts just under $200.

The Black Panthers interfering with elections in Philly were not prosecuted as that stinking Eric Holder said he could not prosecute his people.

Even the LA Times was prescient in defining that Obama could not be touched as he was black when they penned, “Barack, the Magic Negro”: http://tinyurl.com/2bkefq

It’s a great thing for a red-blooded American who is a decedent of slaves to become President. Unfortunately, Obama is not that man, has led a life of luxury from sources still unknown, and has had involvement with subversive groups his entire life. Those groups and the very wealthy have brought him to power and he has exceeded their wildest desires. The rest of us are getting a depression.

A great read is by former IMF president Simon Johnson (2007-2008) in The Atlantic Monthly (online) entitled “The Quiet Coup”. In May 2009 he urged America to not do what third world nations do and build an oligarchy as they will control the government when all is said and done. Obama is just one of many puppets; raised from birth to ascend to positions for others to profit. An informative book is “Dupes: How America’s Enemies Have Used Progressives Against Us For 100 Years”. It appears that they managed to get one to the highest office in the land. Obama should be impeached for many violations of his oath of office and breach of the law. John Locke would be asking us if we need the chains to rattle before we realize we are all slaves. Anarchy is no form of government, so we should do this now under the law to remain a nation of laws. If he is given 4 more years I fear we will be past the ability to restore this great nation through the ballot box. And if so, all is lost.

Do not waste your time trying to convert liberals. That is their religion. Few of the brainwashed will ever be awakened enough to find that they do not have minds of their own. Speak to independents and get them out to vote, for at the ballot box is where they need to be defeated. Then, with the republicans unfortunately being the only viable choice, we need to run good men and woman against those who have locked themselves into their do-nothing jobs and obtain a Congress that works for the people. We have 2 years to change this nation. Then all is lost if this despicable Liar-in-Chief manages to retain power and feed his oligarchs as the rest of America lines the food stamps rolls.

The Associated Press: Santorum to NRA: Obama doesn’t understand America

(AP) – 1 day ago

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Republican presidential aspirant Rick Santorum told National Rifle Association members at their annual convention Friday that President Barack Obama doesn’t “understand America,” and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich told them the administration is “consistently anti-gun and anti-Second Amendment.”

Santorum, a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania, criticized remarks the president made about two weeks ago when he said America not only was a better country because of social programs like Medicare and Medicaid but said, “I’ll go further — we would not be a great country without these commitments.”

“Mr. President,” Santorum said, “You don’t understand America if you believe that,” because it implies the United States wasn’t great for most of the first 200 years of its history.

Post Tax Day, Obama jokes about re-thinking position on taxing wealthy – CBS News Video

Since the 1920s two platform staples of the Democrats has been “to close the tax loopholes,” and raise taxes on the wealthy.

Democrats have controlled the House of Representative 63 years of the last 77 years and the Senate 58 years of the last 77 years. The only loopholes that exist do so by their choice. During the

  • Eisenhower term in office the top marginal personal income tax rate was 91.25%.
  • President Kennedy cut the rate an average per year to 79.4%. Federal income tax revenue increased 55.81%.
  • Gross Domestic Product increased 56.35%
  • During the Carter term in office the top marginal personal income tax rate was 79.00%.
  • President Reagan cut the rate an average per year to 65.41%. Federal income tax revenue increased 65.41%.
  • Gross Domestic Product increased 68.72%.
  • During the Clinton term in office the top marginal personal income tax rate was 39.60%.
  • President Bush cut the rate an average per year to 35.46%.
  •  Federal income tax revenue increased 34.55%.
  • Gross Domestic Product increased 34.16%
  • During periods of low taxes the wealthy invest in U.S. corporations providing capital for business growth, expansion, improvements of infrastructure and job creation. During periods of high taxes they focus on protecting their wealth by moving their money to tax shelters which deprives corporation of capital for growth and eliminates jobs.

Henninger: A Presidency to Nowhere – WSJ.com

No president before Barack Obama has been so right and so wrong.

When in his State of the Union speech Mr. Obama said, “This is our generation’s Sputnik moment,” citing the emergence of global competition from the likes of China and India, he was right.

Minutes later he proposed to cover the country with high-speed rail and companies making solar shingles.

High-speed rail and solar shingles? If that’s the president’s idea of meeting our Sputnik moment, then Houston, we have a problem.

About halfway into the speech, I began to wonder: What is John Boehner thinking? Let’s first welcome back the tradition of House Speakers who bring nothing but a poker face to the State of the Union. (The vice president re-tightening his tie in the middle of the speech was a minor Biden classic.)

American Thinker: The Left Keeps Losing Everywhere

Many conservatives look at their first chance to defeat the left in six years when nervous Democrats try to explain away Obama’s disastrous leftward lurch. The left is not only looking at a big defeat in America in two months, it has been getting slobber-knocked all over the modern industrialized world.

“Blame Bush,” RIP: 2001-2010. | RedState

The standard operating procedure for the Democrats is that the last Republican President acts as their designated devil figure until such time as the next Republican President takes office: that’s why Ronald Reagan went from a diabolical idiot savant in 1988 political discourse to the revered elder statesman of fond memory that Obama looked up to in 2008 campaign commercials, and how George Bush the Elder went from That Guy Who Lied Us Into A War With Iraq For Oil in 1993 to the wise elder statesman who knew better than his son, That Guy Who Lied Us Into A War With Iraq For Oil in 2003. It’s in the best interests of the Democrats to not have things go so south for their current ruling majority, so quickly. So what happened?

American Thinker: What the NAACP/Tea Party Battle Is Really About

The NAACP and its numerous allies have for decades led the charge to expand government power, including intruding into areas once considered absolutely off-limits to local government, let alone Washington. Tea Partiers are not libertarians, but they’ve had enough with government power run amok. This disagreement is, to use Thomas Sowell’s words, an unbridgeable conflict of visions: the Tea Party’s agenda, even stripped of any racial component, contravenes the NAACP’s raison d’être, so when the NAACP complains about insensitivities, it is just saying, “You intend to destroy us.”

Obama’s next act

By Charles Krauthammer
Friday, July 16, 2010; A19

In the political marketplace, there’s now a run on Obama shares. The left is disappointed with the president. Independents are abandoning him in droves. And the right is already dancing on his political grave, salivating about November when, his own press secretary admitted Sunday, Democrats might lose the House.

I have a warning for Republicans: Don’t underestimate Barack Obama.

Consider what he has already achieved. Obamacare alone makes his presidency historic. It has irrevocably changed one-sixth of the economy, put the country inexorably on the road to national health care and, as acknowledged by Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus but few others, begun one of the most massive wealth redistributions in U.S. history.

Second, there is major financial reform, which passed Congress on Thursday. Economists argue whether it will prevent meltdowns and bailouts as promised. But there is no argument that it will give the government unprecedented power in the financial marketplace. Its 2,300 pages will create at least 243 new regulations that will affect not only, as many assume, the big banks but just about everyone, including, as noted in one summary (the Wall Street Journal), “storefront check cashiers, city governments, small manufacturers, home buyers and credit bureaus.”

Third is the near $1 trillion stimulus, the largest spending bill in U.S. history. And that’s not even counting nationalizing the student loan program, regulating carbon emissions by Environmental Protection Agency fiat, and still-fitful attempts to pass cap-and-trade through Congress.

But Obama’s most far-reaching accomplishment is his structural alteration of the U.S. budget. The stimulus, the vast expansion of domestic spending, the creation of ruinous deficits as far as the eye can see are not easily reversed.

These are not mere temporary countercyclical measures. They are structural deficits because, as everyone from Obama on down admits, the real money is in entitlements, most specifically Medicare and Medicaid. But Obamacare freezes these out as a source of debt reduction. Obamacare’s $500 billion in Medicare cuts and $600 billion in tax increases are siphoned away for a new entitlement — and no longer available for deficit reduction.

The result? There just isn’t enough to cut elsewhere to prevent national insolvency. That will require massive tax increases — most likely a European-style value-added tax. Just as President Ronald Reagan cut taxes to starve the federal government and prevent massive growth in spending, Obama’s wild spending — and quarantining health-care costs from providing possible relief — will necessitate huge tax increases.

The net effect of 18 months of Obamaism will be to undo much of Reaganism. Both presidencies were highly ideological, grandly ambitious and often underappreciated by their own side. In his early years, Reagan was bitterly attacked from his right. (Typical Washington Post headline: “For Reagan and the New Right, the Honeymoon Is Over” — and that was six months into his presidency!) Obama is attacked from his left for insufficient zeal on gay rights, immigration reform, closing Guantanamo — the list is long. The critics don’t understand the big picture. Obama’s transformational agenda is a play in two acts.

Act One is over. The stimulus, Obamacare, financial reform have exhausted his first-term mandate. It will bear no more heavy lifting. And the Democrats will pay the price for ideological overreaching by losing one or both houses, whether de facto or de jure. The rest of the first term will be spent consolidating these gains (writing the regulations, for example) and preparing for Act Two.

The next burst of ideological energy — massive regulation of the energy economy, federalizing higher education and “comprehensive” immigration reform (i.e., amnesty) — will require a second mandate, meaning reelection in 2012.

That’s why there’s so much tension between Obama and congressional Democrats. For Obama, 2010 matters little. If Democrats lose control of one or both houses, Obama will probably have an easier time in 2012, just as Bill Clinton used Newt Gingrich and the Republicans as the foil for his 1996 reelection campaign.

Obama is down, but it’s very early in the play. Like Reagan, he came here to do things. And he’s done much in his first 500 days. What he has left to do he knows must await his next 500 days — those that come after reelection.

The real prize is 2012. Obama sees far, farther than even his own partisans. Republicans underestimate him at their peril.
