At Least He is Still Pretty

Chantilly lace, a pretty face, economy headed down. A wiggle in his walk, a giggle in his talk it, gonna make that world go round, round, round.

With the first debate over with what have we learned about our current President. 


1)  $5 Trillion + $2 Trillion = $7 Trillion.  No matter where those numbers came from or if they have any basis in political reality; we now know as a country how to add numbers that includes twelve zeros.  Otherwise referred to as arithmetic.  However, the same mathematical rules don’t apply when establishing the fact that $90 billion is way more the $2.8 billion.

2)  Subsidizes are only bad when they are not authorized by Obama.

3)  It has been 4 years since was Obama put in charge of the country, but nothing that has happened between then and now that can be used to determine the President's ability to lead.

4)  Obama did not find Romney romantic.

5)  Obama enjoys the idea of trickle down government.

6)  There is a mythical tax credit if you move your business over seas.

7)  Obamacare is now a term of endearment to the President.  From this point forward all Obama policy will carry his name as a sign of respect.  Obamagration, O-deficit, The Keystone Obamaline, Dodd Barrack - Obama Frank Financial Reform and of course Barrack and Furious.

8)  Jim Lehrer is a racist and tried to silence the President by cutting him off 5 seconds early.

9)  Obamacare cannot limit medical treatment; however, it does institutes an unelected board that can set the prices for procedures at a level that makes hospitals and doctors unwilling to perform them if the board deems it necessary to ration care. 

10) The teleprompter is brains behind our current President.

Obongocare is a tax, thus Barack Hussein Obama, mmmm mmmm mmmm, is responsible for the largest tax increase in the history of the US.
Randy1949 October 05, 2012 at 02:55 PM
@Bren -- Taking Mitt Romney at his word, we will have reductions in the tax rate and adjustments of deductions, meaning that some of us will be paying a lower tax rate on a higher AGI. There are going to be some winners and some losers, and who those might be is anyone's guess in the absence of hard details. By the way, Romney has just said that his remarks about the 47% were completely wrong. Duh! It doesn't change the fact that he said them in what he assumed would be a safe environment. He's like one of those guys who will tell an offensive ethnic joke at a dinner party if he sees none of 'them' sitting around the table, only to realize too late that someone has a wife or brother-in-law in that group.

Randy I have been at one of those dinner parties. Taking Mitt Romney at his word... He is a man of his word, he even admits when he makes a statement that is incorrect. The POTUS has been a liar for four years, sticking to the same story in the hopes of repetition making believers. Actions speak louder than words, and the POTUS has shown he is a man of inaction and deceit.
J. B. Schmidt October 05, 2012 at 03:05 PM
@Bren I don't believe that he ever disavowed the medical plan in Mass. That was one of the big issues that some Republican had with Romney. His point, something that all libs have trouble processing, is that Romney believes it is a state issue, not the issue of the federal government. The difference between the panels of an insurance company and the panel of the federal government is that people can change insurance companies. Are you claiming that $700million is not coming out of medicare by cutting the amount it pays doctors and hospital greatly decreasing the level of service? As for rehearsed speech, how many times did the president repeat 5 trillion plus 2 trillion equals 7 trillion. That sound considerably more rehearsed, especially after Romney called it a lie. Also, doesn't Obama's stuttering and rambling give you more indication that he lacks the ability to think on his feet. As I stated to Randy, you need to read the transcripts of the debate, because it appears that you libs flip to a test pattern in your brains when Obama speaks and simply download everything he says as absolute truth.
J. B. Schmidt October 05, 2012 at 03:08 PM
@Randy So kinda of like saying that the mandate is not a tax or closing Gitmo.
Craig October 05, 2012 at 03:20 PM
And that onion turned out to be a real stinker.
Randy1949 October 05, 2012 at 03:20 PM
@J.B. -- Neither of those implied that a segment of the population that for whatever reason has an AGI that falls short of having to pay federal income tax (combat soldiers, people with mortgages) yet use no government 'handouts' are refusing to take personal responsibility for their lives. He was flat out wrong, and either ignorant of the tax code or lying to his audience. Refresh my memory, JB -- what happened when Obama tried to close Gitmo and house those prisoners in facilities here in the States? I recall some serious objections from the states where they'd be housed.
Bob McBride October 05, 2012 at 03:44 PM
Randy, that seems to be the objection every time an Obama promise that's gone unfulfilled is brought up. He ran into opposition of some sort. As if that's never happened to any of his predecessors. Constantly blaming others is not a sign of leadership. Neither is sulking and refusing to meet the challenge of debate, and then blaming everyone else when your opponent is declared the winner.
J. B. Schmidt October 05, 2012 at 03:47 PM
@Randy If it was such a stinging remark that could have profound consequences for Romney's campaign, why didn't Obama use it in the debate? Maybe because, while Romney stated his case poorly, the truth is a large percentage of people on the government dole are not planning to vote for Romney and there is nothing he can do to change that. Also, it is something that the other half of America finds offensive and the wrong course for the US. As for Gitmo, it is a line that shows Obama's ignorance for government policy and how the government works. A 3rd grader could have told you that moving terrorists onto American soil was a bad idea. A high school student could have told you that a non-US citizens does not have the same rights under the constitution. Obama made a promise with little foresight. Not to mention, if it was such a great idea, why didn't his party back him when they had complete control of both houses of congress for 2 years?
Randy1949 October 05, 2012 at 03:52 PM
I don't think Barack Obama is the first President to have an initiative that didn't make it through Congress. Bush Sr. had to raise taxes, so did Reagan. Bill Clinton didn't deliver on a healthcare plan. Bush Jr. wasn't able to privatize Social Security, although that wasn't a campaign promise. It's the nature of political life in DC.
James R Hoffa October 05, 2012 at 04:35 PM
@Bren - Hoffa has questions about Obama's tax plan, as the math just doesn't add up. How does Obama reach a balanced budget under his tax plan and create private sector jobs while reducing government dependency? Could you please explain it for us, walking us through the numbers?
James R Hoffa October 05, 2012 at 04:45 PM
@Randy1949 - Once again, your upset that Romney's campaign is targeting federal income tax payers, but not upset that Obama's campaign plays the race card in pandering specifically to African Americans. Sorry, but that's messed up! Romney's 47% comment = applies to everyone premised solely on economic reality African Americans for Obama = RACIST Hoffa would rather support a non-racist.
Randy1949 October 05, 2012 at 04:54 PM
@Hoffa -- Please give me that link again where President Obama supposedly targets African-American voters and no one else. I'd appreciate it.
James R Hoffa October 05, 2012 at 05:44 PM
@Randy1949 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BdjoHA5ocwU Hoffa has scoured the internet, but is unable to find any White Americans for Obama, Latin Americans for Obama, Asian Americans for Obama, Native Americans for Obama, Indian Americans for Obama, Pakistani Americans for Obama, Australian Americans for Obama, Aboriginal Americans for Obama, Eskimo Americans for Obama, etc. Clearly, Obama has targeted his campaign upon a racial qualifier in reaching out solely and uniquely to African Americans, while not doing the same for any other racial or ethnic group. Obama = Racist in Chief! How can you openly support such a bigoted racist? BTW - Still waiting for you to explain Obama's plan for us!

That's at least two minorities other than African-Americans right there on the Obama/Biden website. I guess he's not as racist as you think. I din't even really 'scour' the net, just used Google.
Randy1949 October 05, 2012 at 06:11 PM
http://www.barackobama.com/native-americans There's your Aboriginal Americans, Hoffa.
James R Hoffa October 05, 2012 at 07:01 PM
@Randy1949 - Hoffa expects to see equal treatment from someone who claims to be for every American equally. Romney at least targets them all in the same way, with equal treatment. Obama made a video and gave a lofty speech for African Americans. So, where's the equal treatment from Obama for the other races/ethnicities? Obama = Racist in Chief!
mau October 05, 2012 at 07:36 PM
Kohl and Feingold were big supporters of agribusiness. Obama continues to support oil companies by waging war in the Middle East. Obama appoints Monsanto employees Into government position in particular assignments in charge of our food.
mau October 05, 2012 at 07:40 PM
Romney was aggressive enough to not let Lehrer steer the debate in Obama's favor. Like the liberal moderators always tend to do.
mau October 05, 2012 at 07:57 PM
Exactly who is the judge of "what is the best and the brightest"? Anybody ever record any of Obama's remarks he makes behind closed door? Anybody who picks Mr. Angry Mouth Rahm Emanuel as Chief of Staff has to approve of his behavior and comments.
mau October 05, 2012 at 07:59 PM
@JRH, white groups are not allowed in America. They are racist.
Nuitari (Grand Master Editor) October 05, 2012 at 10:43 PM
Obama is half lazy and half angry.
CowDung October 05, 2012 at 11:15 PM
I'm going to stick up for Lehrer on this one, Mau. I've always thought that Lehrer was one of the few newspeople that didn't show a bias...
Nuitari (Grand Master Editor) October 05, 2012 at 11:44 PM
Lehrer was always known to be a great moderator. Unfortunately it looks like age has got the best of him or maybe he was intimidated as Obama treated him like a replacement NFL ref.
