Polls: Most People Blame Obama for bad Economy

Obama has been running away from economy…

President Obama has been trying to campaign mostly away from the economy.

He started the class warfare, telling everyone that the rich have not been paying their fair shares of taxes—ignorant of the fact that the top 1% paid an average rate of 24% and contributed 36.7% of total tax collected versus rate of 1.8% and contribution of 2.3% from the bottom 50%. Fair? (Please click here for more 2009 IRS data) Continue reading

Obama: Thinking About You!

Every single day, every waking hour…

In 2008, I tried to only make promises that I could keep, or work on keeping,” Obama said. “And I told you then I was not a perfect man and I wouldn’t be a perfect president. But I also told you I would always tell you what I thought, I’d always tell you where I stood make. And most of all, I would wake up every single day, every single day and spend every waking hour thinking about you.

Desperate act by Barack Obama

The accusations

(from Washington Post)

“Romney and Bain claim that he was not involved with Bain, but Bain and its portfolio companies in their required filings under the Securities Exchange Act continuously certified to the Securities and Exchange Commission say precisely the opposite — asserting without qualification that he was a controlling person, fully in charge of Bain, under the Federal securities law. Under normal circumstances, the question of the truth of this representation would result in an investigation by the SEC into possible criminal, as well as civil, violations of the law.”

— Robert Bauer, Obama campaign counsel, July 13, 2012 Continue reading
