The Man is a Dictator

Meet the new boss...
According the the main stream press President Obama has emerged a "winner' on the fiscal cliff crisis.  With the House approving a bill today on New Year's Day that was hastily assembled on New Year's Eve and passed by the Senate, automatic income tax increases have been averted and taxes will rise on those families with income over $450,000.  The Republicans went along with it just to avoid tax increases for the rest of the 98% of those who make less strategizing that this was better than nothing.  It also avoids automatic budget cuts to the defense department which would have been devastating. 

Of course many on the right argue against this move saying it is against principle but in reality it really places Obama in a box.  Yesterday and today he went to the podium to lecture Congress that after this he would no longer agree to "cut our way to prosperity" and that any new deficit reduction (did any really occur here?) would have to be "balanced" with additional tax increases.  Well who is he going to tax next?  The "sort of rich"?  He even said he would go after "wealthy corporations".  When has a corporation been wealthy?  And won't those corporations shed jobs in order to pay higher taxes.  He just raised taxes on small business and now he wants to raise taxes on US corporations who have one of the highest tax rates in the world?

So "how did Obama win"?  What are mainstream pundits smoking (including Fox).  Obama brought potentially a little more into treasury (around $500 billion annually) but we have a $1 trillion annual deficit and $16 trillion in total debt!  This doesn't pay for squat - and this is a win?

As I have said many times, not only are the Democrats enemies of the state but so is the media which fails to articulate the mess Obama has brought upon this nation.  And it is obvious from tonight that he is not interested in leading - but in dictating.

New Years Rant against the Racist Right

Happy New Year…or whatever.
Anyway. Suprising the racist right can’t start the new year without smearing and demeaning the thing they hate the most. A Minority whose leader of a Majority..In other words, a Black Man as President.

Last year, I admitted that Obama lies. He’s a politican…All politicans lies, but what I won’t stand is that he is called a liar by the exact same hypocrites who lie about the President on a daily basis. Lies about his ideology, his birth place, his birth certificate, his religion, his layolity to America, and now, the way he beat Romney in the 2012 election.

Obama…He is as honest as the next man. Unfortunately they way we see truth differs. His just is at the end of the spectrum with complete truth on the other side.

Is Barack Obama a Communist?

No, If he were that would mean every republican is a communist as well, Is John Boehner also a communist? If President Obama were a Communist he wouldn’t have worried so much about re-election He’d most likely be running unopposed. He is not a communist

Is Barack Obama a Marxist?

No, I’m pretty sure he’s never read the “Communist Manifesto” Either.

Is Barack Obama destroying America?

No, But the potential for danger is there with all the Bush Policies and people he kept in place! ‘Bama isn’t destroying America as fast as Bush did or Romney would. But he’s not turning it around, either.

Is Barack Obama a Traitor to America?

Nope, if you want traitors, you should look to Reagan (Iranian hostages) and Nixon (Paris peace)

Does Barack Obama hate America?

No, He doesn’t even hate the people who lodge these asinine claims against him repeatedly.

In the past 13 months, Obama’s enacted $1.7T in cuts and now $0.6T in revenues. And Republicans are demanding yet more cuts . . . except to defense contractors since government spending can’t create jobs unless it’s laundered through the DoD.


Hey, its nobody’s fault but your own if you’re eating franks and beans…

Bush took more days off as President than anyone…ever.

Sounds to me like you’re just jealous…

Some political commentators claim that George W. Bush will go down in history as the worst president ever. It would be more accurate to describe him as the second-worst president of the postwar era.

Climbing to the nation’s highest office after overseeing more lethal injections than any other Texas governor in history, before or since, Bush soon made a name for himself by using the Office of Faith-Based Initiatives to reward his political friends, using the Department of Justice to punish his political enemies, and using the fear of international terrorism to radically expand executive power.

the worst president by far was George W. Bush. He started 2 wars, allowed us to be attacked on 9/11, set international relations back 50 years, tortured prisoners, the Patriot Act, cut taxes on the wealthy and corporations that deregulated markets that helped lead to a great Republican recession. In fact in 8 years in office, I can’t think of anything positive to come out of his presidency.

Republicans have grown to habitually blame everything on Barack Obama. The economy? Barack Obama. The deficit? Barack Obama. The fact that it’s 2013 and we still don’t have flying cars? Barack Obama, well, and maybe Bill Gates.

They have grown so used to doing this that they cannot stop.

Republicans: We screwed you all, but thanks for blaming it on the black guy!
