Need we say more?
|Recently Obama was a guest on ‘The Daily Show’ and when referring to the four dead Americans in Benghazi, he said it was ‘not optimal’. This outrageous statement from the President of the United States has many Americans upset and demanding the truth about this horrific terrorist attack on one of our Embassies.
From the National Review Online
A new Obama campaign ad directed at women votersstates that Republican candidate Mitt Romney would ban abortion, but uses a Romney quote that has been cut off to distort the candidate’s stance toward the 1973Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.
The quote is from a Republican primary debate during which moderator Anderson Cooper asked the candidates, “If Roe v. Wade were overturned, Congress passed a federal ban on all abortions and it came to your desk, would you sign it? Yes or no?”
The ad depicts Romney’s response as, “I’d be delighted to sign that bill,” but truncates the remainder of his sentence, which was, “But that’s not where we are. That’s not where America is today.”
The ad comes as a new USA Today/Gallup poll finds more women in swing states are leaning toward Romney. The Obama campaign and the campaigns of many other Democrats around the country are doubling down on the left’s “War on Women” canard, a sure sign that the “women’s vote” is no longer a certainty for Democrats.
In the state of Connecticut, for example, abortion and access to birth control took center stage during the final debate between U.S. Senate candidates Democrat Chris Murphy and Republican Linda McMahon. Similarly, on Thursday we reported that Planned Parenthood is spending an additional $828,000 on Romney attack ads in the swing states of Colorado and Virginia.
In response to the ad, Romney spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg said:
President Obama’s campaign continues to mislead voters in a desperate attempt to distract from this president’s failed economic record. Five and a half million women are struggling to find work in the Obama economy, and they are suffering from record unemployment under this president.

Taxmageddon and its impact
A tsunami of tax hikes is set to hit the American people in 2013 if Congress fails to act. Here are some snapshots of how Taxmageddon affects the country, drawn from the research of The Heritage Foundation’s Center for Data
■ The Nation: $494 billion total tax
increase on all Americans
■ Families: $4,138 average tax
■ Baby Boomers: $4,223 average tax
■ Millennials: $1,099 average tax
■ Low-Income Workers: $1,207 average tax increase
■ Retirees: $857 average increase
■ States: $1,929 (WV) to $5,161 (CT)
range in average tax hikes per
■ Congressional Districts: $1,236
(NY-16) to $13,951 (NY-14) range
in average tax hikes per return.
These tax increases, which will hit every taxpayer in the country, will take effect on January 1, 2013 because the Senate hasn’t bothered to re-authorize the Bush Tax Cuts. To find out how badly they will affect you, please read the research done by the Heritage Foundation here: http://thf_media.s3.amazonaws.com/2012/pdf/sr-110.pdf.
These increase will have a negative effect on an economy that’s already hurting thanks to failed Democrat policies and they simply don’t care that you’ll pay even more than you do now. Americans can hardly afford more job killing government idiocy like this.
If you watched the Vice Presidential debate last night, you are aware that Joe Biden made a giant horse’s ass out of himself. He embarrassed the office of the Vice President and the United States with his childish behavior. When you really take a look at what he laughed at, it’s despicable.
Obama’s campaign manager, Stef Cutter, is actually claiming that Romney and Ryan are politicizing Obama’s failure in Benghazi and that is why people are talking about it.
NO you despicable moron, Americans deserve to know the truth about what happen so they can decide that Obama has blood on his hands for themselves.
Still think Democrats aren’t despicable?
As if Democrats couldn’t get any worse, the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) has now created an ad for New Hampshire’s far left wing Congressional District 2 candidate Ann Kuster that outright LIES about Medicare. The ad shows ALL elderly people and tries to tell them that they are going to lose their Medicare. This is an egregious LIE. The Ryan plan doesn’t affect ANYONE over 55 and the Democrats know that. Apparently elder abuse is now on their check list of ‘things to do’.
Organizing For America – the group that campaigns for Obama – doesn’t bother telling people that it’s ILLEGAL to vote TWICE in the election. They are despicable.
Obama and his Administration continue to lie to the American people about his FAILURE in Benghazi. 4 Americans DIED because Obama refused to send American Security forces to protect them. He and his Administration then lied about it to the American people. This is beyond despicable.
From the Center for Freedom and Prosperity
The economy is suffering from the weakest recovery since the end of World War II, in large part because President Obama has increased the burden of government. This CF&P Foundation mini-documentary also contrasts the economy’s anemic performance under Obamanomics with the strong expansion under Reaganomics.
More Obama numbers that should scare the living hell out of you.

COURTESY OF READER ROBERT MCCLURE, here’s an updated version of that deficit chart, showing how absurd it is to blame today’s huge national debt on George W. Bush’s spending on Iraq and Afghanistan.
UPDATE: Here’s another, more precise one, from a reader who asks to remain anonymous.

Obama and his team believe Americans are stupid and won’t look into the actual numbers. Fortunately some have. Obama has continued to lie about his job creation throughout his campaign; especially in his comparison to President George Bush. Unreal.
(CNSNews.com) – From fiscal 2008 to fiscal 2011, according to the U.S. Treasury, the federal government increased spending on foreign aid by 80 percent and, in fiscal 2011, spent 76 percent more on foreign aid than it did securing the borders of the United States.
In fiscal 2008, the government spent a total of $11.427 billion in international assistance programs, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. In fiscal 2011, according to the statement, it spent $20.599 billion—an increase of $9.172 billion, or 80 percent, from 2008.
Prior to President Obama taking office, international assistance spending had been trending down for three years, according to the Treasury. In fiscal 2005, it was $14.787 billion. In fiscal 2006, it dropped to $13.914 billion. In fiscal 2007, it dropped again to $12.764 billion. And, in fiscal 2008, it dropped yet again to $11.427 billion.
Since 2008, international assistance spending has increased each year. In fiscal 2009, it climbed to $14.827 billion. In fiscal 2010, it jumped to $20.038 billion. And, in fiscal 2011, it climbed again to $20.599 billion.
By the end of August, after the first eleven months of fiscal 2012, the federal government had already spent $20.058 on foreign aid in that fiscal year. That was well ahead of the $18.439 billion the federal government had spent on foreign aid through August of last year. The Treasury has not yet published the final amount that was spent on foreign aid in fiscal 2012, which ended on Sunday.
While foreign aid spending has climbed over the past four years, spending on border security peaked in fiscal 2009 and has since declined. In fiscal 2008, the federal government spent $9.984 billion on customs and border protection, according to the Monthly Treasury Statement. In fiscal 2009, that increased to $12.122 billion. But, in fiscal 2010, that dropped to $11.376 billion. In fiscal 2011, it increased slightly to $11.698 billion—still less than the $12.122 billion spent on customs and border protection in fiscal 2009.
Through August of fiscal 2012, spending on customs and border protection was $11.259 billion, ahead of the $10.656 billion on customs and border protection spent through August of fiscal 2011.
The $20.599 billion spent on foreign aid last year was 76 percent more than the $11.698 billion spent on customs and border protection.
Included, among other things, in the $20.599 billion spent on foreign aid last year, according to the Treasury, was $5.717 billion for the Economic Support Fund, $5.322 billion for the Foreign Military Financing Program, $3.177 in multilateral assistance, $4.248 billion for the Agency for International Development (including $1.210 billion in operating expenses for AID), $395 million for the Peace Corps and $125 million for international monetary programs.
The foreign military sales program, which Treasury includes in its accounting of international assistance programs, took in $23.947 billion in fiscal 2011 and paid out $23.947 billion. Thus it had no impact on the net outflow of aid from the United States to foreign interests.
Below in billions of dollars is the annual spending on international assistance and customs and border protection over the past nine fiscal years. (The figures for fiscal 2012 include only the first eleven months of the fiscal year.)

From The Blaze
The reported unemployment rate measures the ratio of unemployed workers seeking work relative to the size of the workforce. So what happens when the size of the workforce shrinks to historic lows? You get a small dip in the unemployment rate.
As this chart (via Zero Hedge) demonstrates, America’s workforce continues shrink as unemployed workers give up on finding jobs:
Does today’s dip in the unemployment rate mean our economy is on the right track? That’s the argument President Obama and his campaign are sure to make. But the labor force participation rate – which has fallen precipitously from 66.1 percent in 2008 to 63.5 percent today – tells a different story.
The median family income in America has dropped 8% since Obama took office.
The nation’s real unemployment rate remains near 11%.
The percentage of college graduates who can’t find work now exceeds 50%.
The U.S. birthrate has even declined as young Americans struggle to get established.
The number of workers settling for part-time work rose 7.5% last month to 8.6 million.
Clearly, the unemployment rate is not telling the whole story.
To add insult to injury, the United States added 114,000 jobs in September. Cause for celebration? Hardly: With just 1/10th of the population of the United States, Canada added 52,000 jobs last month. If the United States economy created jobs at a rate on par with Canada’s economy, we would’ve created about 480,000 jobs last month, not 114,000.
If this is what moving “forward” looks like in America nowadays, we’re in serious trouble.
This union hack teacher actually told the student to get out of her class AND equated wearing a Romney/Ryan t-shirt to wearing a KKK t-shirt. Apparently the teacher doesn’t realize that Democrats started the KKK and were the ONLY party to ever lynch a black man. This teacher should be FIRED, no questions asked, for her treatment of this student; her violation of the 1st Amendment; her lack of knowledge about history and her lack of civility.
During the robust Reagan jobs recovery in the 1980s, liberals regularly dismissed good news by attributing it to the creation of “McJobs.” So it’s interesting to see liberals celebrating the September jobs report, in which the headline unemployment figure fell to 7.8 percent, largely because of an increase in Americans settling for low paying part-time jobs.
Once a month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports two main sets of employment numbers. Under one measure, based on a survey of employers, the economy added 114,000 jobs in September. Under another measure, based on a smaller survey of households, the economy added 873,000. But a more detailed look at these numbers shows that 572,000 — or about 67 percent — of the reported job gains that contributed to the reduction in the unemployment rate came from workers who had to settle for part time work. BLS explains that, “The number of persons employed part time for economic reasons (sometimes referred to as involuntary part-time workers) rose from 8.0 million in August to 8.6 million in September. These individuals were working part time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job.” This is why a broader measure of unemployment, which takes into account those who were forced to accept inferior jobs, remained flat at 14.7 percent.
This report is part of a broader trend that we’ve seen over the past few years, in which job gains have been concentrated in lower-wage positions. And this isn’t just spin from the Romney campaign. Over the summer, the liberal National Employment Law Project released a report that was highlighted in the Atlantic, which focused on this trend. The report found that:
– Lower-wage occupations were 21 percent of recession losses, but 58 percent of recovery growth.
– Mid-wage occupations were 60 percent of recession losses, but only 22 percent of recovery growth.
This is illustrated by the NELP chart above. Though Obama has touted modest job gains during the recovery as evidence things are getting better, looking merely at the headline jobs and unemployment number obscures the fact that the middle class has still struggled to find quality jobs, while more Americans are settling for lower-paying work.
