Benghazi Attack: Romney / Ryan Are At Fault (Says Obama Campaign Genius Stephanie Cutter)

Obama's deputy campaign chairman (and did I mention genius? ....sarcasm font) Stephanie Cutter took the opportunity today to blame the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi (you know, where FOUR American diplomats were murdered?), Libya on Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan...

No, I'm serious.

In an interview with CNN's Brooke Baldwin:

Cutter: In terms of the politicization of this — you know, we are here at a debate, and I hope we get to talk about the debate — but the entire reason this has become the political topic it is, is because of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. It’s a big part of their stump speech. And it’s reckless and irresponsible what they’re doing.

Baldwin: But, Stephanie, this is national security. As we witnessed this revolution last year, we covered it–

Cutter: (Interrupts) It is absolutely national security.

Baldwin: –it is absolutely pertinent. People in the American public absolutely have a right to get answers.

Cutter was instantly blasted by much of the media and political arena, at which point she took the opportunity to recant her statements and explain herself on Twitter....

 Romney has politicized Libya w/no plans of his own. POTUS' priorities are getting facts & bringing terrorists to justice.

Hmm. No. Here I was thinking it had something to do with the fact that four people died, we were LIED to repeatedly by the president and his administration, and now the truth is coming out...
I'm sorry..... First, Nancy Pelosi, and now Obama's campaign princess. Seriously, these people have to go.

Can This Christian Vote For A Mormon?

In the name (I suppose) of protecting us innocent, naive Christians who can't possibly think for ourselves, the Obama Campaign and his supporters are asking, "Can you vote for a Mormon?".... Well, gosh, thanks for asking.

If you can vote for a man whose pastor and MENTOR of 20 years preaches, "God bless America? NO! God DAMN America!"... then yes, I can vote for a Mormon.

If you can vote for a man who caters to a violent religion (of peace) that is responsible for murdering thousands upon thousands of Americans, not to mention HUNDREDS of thousands of Christians and other believers worldwide ... then yes, I can vote for a Mormon.

If you can vote for a man believes in collective salvation, not individual salvation through Jesus Christ as it's taught in the Bible ... then yes, I can vote for a Mormon.

If you can vote for a man whose spiritual adviser preaches that the notion that America was founded as a Christian nation is heresy ... then yes, I can vote for a Mormon.

If you can vote for a man who has slapped the Catholic faith in the face by forcing them to pay for birth control and abortions, both of which have been completely against their beliefs from the beginning ... then yes, I can vote for a Mormon.

None of those things matter, though, because here's the thing. Mitt Romney (the Mormon) believes that Jesus Christ is his Lord and Savior; that he was crucified - suffered and died the most excruciating death you can imagine, hanging on a cross at the hands of men - to save him from his sins. So, unless I somehow missed the fact that there's more than one Jesus Christ (there isn't) ... then yes, I can vote for a Mormon.

And I will.

Riddle me this.... We're supposed to believe all of these protests are about a YouTube video that degrades the prophet Muhammad, even though hundreds of protesters are on video chanting, "Hey, Obama, we're all Osama!" ....  just DAYS after you and your comrades referenced you killing him (with your bare hands...we get it) at the Democratic Convention TWENTY ONE TIMES. Chants about the prophet Muhammad, or YouTube, or the name of the man who made it? No. Chants about Osama and Obama? Yes. Yet still, you keep harping on the video. I'm not saying the protests are a result of the Osama mentions, but it makes as much sense, I promise.
With all due respect, I'm guessing some of these towns have little-to-no knowledge, much less access, to YouTube and by the way..........why hadn't anyone heard about the video (trailer for Innocence of Muslims) before YOU mentioned it?!?!

So the thing is, it's NOT. ABOUT. A VIDEO.
The American People aren't stupid. Seriously, we're a smidge smarter than you think. Lose the act. Give us truth we deserve and the respect your murdered diplomats have earned. You are desecrating the names of men who died on YOUR watch, when YOUR administration had been warned it would happen and did NOTHING about it. PLEASE STOP.
A video??  Transparent administration??  Mmkay, no.


P.S. Please send two Obama phones.

Violent Anti-American Acts Are NOT Acts Against America.... And 2 + 2 = Potato

So, in the last two days....
US Ambassador to Libya was sodomized and murdered.
US embassy in Libya was burned down.
US embassy in Cairo was attacked, our flag burned and replaced with a Muslim banner.
US embassy in London was mobbed, our flag burned.
US embassy in Tunisia was attacked, windows smashed and fire bombed.
VIOLENT anti-America protests are happening all around the world today.
Universities across America were evacuated today because of bomb threats.
A nuclear plant in Austin, TX was evacuated today because of a bomb threat.
And we aren't supposed to worry, because the official statement from the Obama Administration is that these are not acts against America or the American people. They're just in response to a video on YouTube.  (Obama's press secretary Jay Carney: We also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to United States policy, and not to, obviously, the administration, or the American people, but it is in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be be reprehensible and disgusting. That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims.). The attacks have nothing to do with the fact that the Dems had to point out 21 TIMES during the convention that Obama killed Bin Laden.... that's not offensive to militant jihadists at all. Just the YouTube a random dude...that is an Israeli Jew...but whatever...
Please. Stop my brain. It's bleeding.
HOW is this man in office??? How?
The president is supposed to attend a security briefing every morning. Obama hasn't shown up for one since September 5th. We had information on September 4th that this was going to take place, but the president was busy on the campaign trail getting staged (I mean spontaneous) bear hugs from business owners So... our state department gets a tip that these attacks are coming and the president skips every briefing since. Coincidental, no? I won't even get into his lack of respect and response to the life of a US diplomat being brutally murdered... that's a whole 'nother blog.

Meanwhile, as the Obama campaign and mainstream media (or as I like to call them, "same thing") criticize Romney's foreign policy............

Obama On Voting: Dead People Can, Military Can't.

Let's be honest. You can't even get out of bed in this country without a photo ID. Still, for whatever reason, Democrats and the Obama administration refuse to acknowledge that requiring an ID to vote is okay, given that you can't even check out a library book without one (stupid racist libraries). So, if Democrats are so concerned about voter suppression, why has President Obama filed a lawsuit in Ohio to rob men and women in the military of their right to vote? Obama's campaign team is challenging a law that passed with wide bipartisan support, giving military men and women a three day extension to cast their vote. Could it be because the dead / ineligible voter contingent tends to vote Democrat (over 5,000 in Colorado in the 2008 election) while our military has a long history of voting Republican? Yep. Here's why:

In Florida, election officials discovered 53,000 dead people still registered to vote and purged them from their voter rolls. More impressively, they discovered 186,000 NON-CITIZENS had registered to vote and began purging them from rolls as well. Luckily for the departed and ineligible voters, Attorney General Eric Holder had their back and DEMANDED Florida cease purging them from the rolls.... Um...huh? I'm all about fighting for and protecting our rights as Americans, but last time I checked, those rights weren't extended to non-breathers and citizens of other countries. Sadly, Florida isn't the only state facing this problem.

In Virginia, hundreds of residents complained to the state Board of Elections after receiving voter registration forms in the mail that were addressed not only to dead people and non-citizens, but to CHILDREN and FAMILY PETS. The Romney campaign asked for an investigation into the situation, but alas, there will be no probe and Romney's request was (of course) labeled as an "attack on democracy"... Seriously???
My brain is starting to bleed and these are just two examples of the MANY ridiculous attempts by Dems to protect the votes of the dead and ineligible they need in order to win.

Maybe I should have stopped looking for logic in this administration long ago, but for some reason, I continue to be amazed. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE take 2 minutes to sign this petition and join ACLJ's fight to protect the voting rights of the men and women who spend years fighting to protect ALL of our rights!  (But only if you believe the men & women who spend years away from their families being shot at, blown up, tortured physically and psychologically, mutilated and decapitated fighting for the rights of those deceased, non-American voters deserve the same rights themselves....)

Bain Outsourcing Under Romney? Nope. Check Your Facts, Mr. President...

By this point, we shouldn't be surprised by either the quantity or quality of lies that spew forth from the Obama campaign and the president himself (feign shock here).  Too much untruth is being overlooked and allowed, and frankly, I'm over it. Case-in-point, Obama's new anti-Romney/anti-Bain ad:

“The Washington Post has just revealed that Romney's companies were pioneers in shipping US jobs overseas. Investing in firms that 'specialized in relocating jobs done by American workers to new facilities in low-wage countries like China and India.’ Does Virginia really want an Outsourcer-In-Chief in the White 
Then there's this from President Obama during a campaign speech: “Today, it was reported in The Washington Post that the companies his firm owned were ‘pioneers’ in the outsourcing of American jobs to places like China and India – pioneers! Tampa, we do not need an outsourcing pioneer in the Oval Office.…” No, no, no, no, no. And no. Not in answer to his question; in response to his claims.

It clearly doesn't matter that the Washington Post itself gave Obama 4 Pinocchios for his ads and speeches referring to their story. He and his campaign are hell-bent on making Romney look evil for having anything to do with a corporation that only did what it was hired to do... cut costs and increase revenue. The ONLY alternative to producing revenue is LOSING revenue. Obviously that doesn't keep a company in business, though our federal government has yet to grasp such a crazy concept. The companies to whom WAPo referred did NOT outsource jobs under Bain's direction. To the contrary, they produced MORE American jobs and increased both production AND revenue. Oh, did I mention all those companies provided signed statements disproving what WAPo and Obama claim? Yeah, you're gonna wanna click on that.

Bottom line is this. Some people take issue with equity firms like Bain because sometimes when companies are encouraged to cut costs, payroll is one of the areas that suffer. The flip side is that many times other areas are cut just so payroll WON'T suffer, and many times companies are able to create new jobs based on increased production and revenue. The big picture is that if many of these companies continue operating as they always have and don't act on the suggestions of seasoned professionals, it very may well end in the entire company going belly-up, at which point ALL employees lose their jobs. Bain's operations are not illegal or unethical, and if we sit back and take a look at all the jobs lost in America under Obama's presidency and all the jobs that have been sent overseas during his first three years, Romney and Bain look  golden. 

It's unfortunate that President Obama can't run on his own record and therefore has to grasp at straws to paint an ugly picture of his opponent. That should be the ONLY thing the Romney campaign should have to say.... but for whatever reason, it seems like Mitt may have dropped off the face of the Earth. His campaign's lackluster response to Obama's lies makes me want to punch myself, but I'm still putting my money on the successful businessman who DID improve his state's economy, DOES have a record of job creation, and DID balance Massachusetts's whacked-out budget immediately when he became governor and produced a balanced budget every year thereafter over our current failure-in-chief. You're totally welcome to join me (If you're smart, you will.).

ERMAHGERD! Stop. The. Presses! I Totally Agree With Harry Reid!

No, really. I do. (It's ok....breathe.....breathe.......breathe..........)

Who on Earth came up with the brilliant idea to have our United States Olympic Team Uniforms MADE IN CHINA??????  Don't get me wrong.... I lurrrrv me some Ralph Lauren all day, any day, but come on.

Right now?
Blehhh. Lame.

Sir Harry thought so, too. He had this to say:  “I am so upset,” the Nevada Democrat told reporters Thursday. “I think the Olympic Committee should be ashamed of themselves. I think they should be embarrassed. I think they should take all the uniforms and put them in a big pile and burn them and start all over again.”

I totally agree. Though I'd burn them twice. Once because they were made in China and then again because they look like creepy youth-bot [insert favorite "-ist" regime here] uniforms, complete with beret a la Che Guevara. Tres Orwellian Chic!

I digress... So anyway, kudos to Senator Reid! Not just for calling out the Olympic committee, but for keeping American minds focused on anything other than the state of our nation and the failures of the current administration by bringing this to our attention! I see what you did there, Hare-Bear! Keep up the good work!

If Republicans Talked Like Democrats..... Minority Unemployment

The latest numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that while the overall rate of unemployment is 8.2%, unemployment for African-Americans is 14.4% and for Hispanics is 11%. Additionally, unemployment for teenagers is 23%.

If Republicans talked like Democrats....... President Obama hates black people. And Hispanic people. And teenagers.

Meme's The Word! Seriously, Can I Get Paid To Do This?

Hi, my name is Polly (not true) and I'm a meme-o-holic (tewtally true!).
I am completely obsessed with creating memes and graphics since discovering facts (and sarcasm) are more easily understood by a large portion of our population when in a format decipherable by a six year old. Sooo, this is me sharing them with you. Some may make you want to punch yourself in the face, so... sorry for that.

I feel like that last one needs a lil explanation... Made during DC's massive power outage that lasted for days and days and days. Now you know. Later, kids!

Someone Skipped Math Class At Harvard.... June 2012 Unemployment Numbers

Let's talk numbers. Unemployment ones. I mean, we all know the private sector is doing just fine.....which is why it produced exactly 1,000 jobs less than the number of people who went on disability last month.... 84,000 and 85,000 respectively. Seriously?  Why is Mitt Romney not destroying Obama in the polls?  Why haven't I seen any ads that highlight the mess of numbers that are our economy and labor force under this guy?? I've seen plenty of Obama ads bashing Romney over (factually incorrect) numbers from Massachusetts under his watch, but COME. ON. MITT! This incumbent is handing you pure gold and you're flushing it down the drain. Uh.......?? It's this simple...

14.4% unemployment among African-Americans (Pretty sure the media would pounce on that one under a Republican administration....)
23.7% unemployment among teens
11% unemployment among Hispanics (Ditto above parenthesis.)
41.9% of the unemployed have been so for over 27 weeks.
766,000 more women unemployed now than when Obama took office (Annnnnd ditto parenthesis. Again.)
(figures from

Here's the thing. I didn't go to Harvard (or maybe I did and I just sealed every document that pertains to my enrollment), but I know a little bit about math and numbers... And them numbers ain't good.

Come on, America. This is serious. Bring. on. the. CHANGE, y'all!

Happy Birthday, America!

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.

Hmm.... I think I smell a revolution. Who's in?!?

No, Nancy Pelosi, It's Not About Voter Suppression. It's About A MURDERED U.S. Agent. The End.

LawdaMERCY, the field day the left would have with Nancy Pelosi if she were conservative!  Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann have nothing on her. Nothing. Not even combined. First, there was the "We have to pass the bill so you can find out what's in it" (I can't even comment on that one...), followed by the "There's something I know" incident with Newt (someone on an ETHICS Committee releasing privileged information....that's rich.), and now Nancypants is leading the way (no...literally) on accusing the GOP of having some racist, political agenda behind the vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in Contempt of Congress.
Is this woman for real??

In an(other) epic failure to paint herself as some civil rights champion among the ranks of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks, Pelosi marched right out of the U.S. Capitol yesterday, leading members of  "her" Congressional Black Caucus (I'm still confused about that one...) and other Democrats when the clock struck vote time.
(Check it... Almost thought she was Jesus. Then I realized it's a pantsuit, not a robe.)

Obama's Evolution, Part Deux: Exercising Executive Privilege

Well, well, well.... Let's start with this little gem of a video.

Oops. Well thank goodness for yet another evolution on the part of the Top Dog, or the Attorney General would be screwed (No, "dog" is not a racial slur, thanks.). As if "Fast and Furious" wasn't a large enough slap in the face, White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer made this statement in response to the House Committee's recommendation to hold Holder in contempt:

“With millions of Americans still struggling to pay the bills, Republicans announced at the beginning of this year that one of their top priorities was to investigate the administration and damage the president politically..... We are 10 days away from the expiration of federal transportation funding which guarantees jobs for almost a million construction workers because Congress hasn’t passed a transportation bill. We are 11 days away from nearly seven and a half million students seeing their loan rates double because Congress hasn’t acted to stop it. But instead of creating jobs or strengthening the middle-class, Congressional Republicans are spending their time on a politically-motivated, taxpayer-funded election-year fishing expedition,”

Mmmkay, soooo..... This administration and Congressional Democrats have spent MONTHS talking about who should pay for a woman's birth control and the fact that a dude on the radio called someone a slut, but addressing the lies surrounding a secret operation that resulted in the illegal transfer of over 1600 assault weapons, as well as the deaths of an American Border Patrol Agent and hundreds of Mexicans is nothing more than a fishing expedition to damage the president politically??? And it isn't just birth control. Their entire agenda this year has been to shift focus to any number of comparably insignificant issues to keep focus off of the train wreck that is Obama's presidency.... Birth control. Gay marriage. Student loans. Rush Limbaugh. The non-existent war on women. The certain death that will come with Voter ID laws. Mitt Romney: Ponytail Slasher. Trayvon Martin (with all due respect). Herman Cain's imaginary harassment victims. SOFT DRINKS AND WHAT A 4 YEAR OLD GIRL TAKES TO SCHOOL FOR LUNCH, for crying out loud! Okay, I have to stop before I yak up my lunch (which, coincidentally, was not chicken nuggets...the food our government thinks is somehow healthier than a turkey & cheese sandwich).

You know, I'm starting to understand Michelle Obama's declaration of pride for her country for the first time ever.... except the opposite... because for the first time ever, I'm actually ashamed of my country. Ashamed that the Obama administration places more value on its pride than on a man who gave his life in service to his country. Ashamed that this administration has no desire to get to the bottom of such a botched operation and hold those responsible accountable. Ashamed that the American people are not outraged over this tragedy and demanding justice (Maybe we should change Brian Terry's last name to Halliburton...). And more than anything, I am BEYOND ashamed that more than 500 days after Terry was murdered, President Obama has yet to apologize or even acknowledge Terry's parents and family and the devastating pain that has been their lives for the last year and a half. Nothing. Not a single word. He had words for Trayvon Martin's parents in a public address from the White House Rose Garden, but for a U.S. AGENT'S parents? Nothing.

Then there's Al Sharpton. Fair, unbiased Al Sharpton STILL hasn't shut up about Trayvon Martin (God rest his soul). Despite George Zimmerman having a broken nose, multiple head wounds, a lower back injury and more, the great Rev. won't stop until he has convinced every life form on this planet that Trayvon's death was an intentional, racially motivated hate crime. Yet, for some reason, he doesn't believe in the same justice when it comes to Brian Terry's death. The bad guys in this case aren't the actual murderers, but the people demanding the murderers come clean. Amazing.

Does ANYONE in this administration have a heart? Aren't they supposed to be the party of compassion? 'Cause I'm having a hard time finding the compassion here.... Deceit, disrespect, and lies? Yes. Compassion, no. I can't shake the feeling that had this happened under Bush's watch, justice would have been demanded by the very people suppressing justice today. Though, if you ask White House Mouse Jay Carney, he'll tell you it's still Bush's fault since Fast & Furious started during his presidency (which it didn't). Only problem is....if any of the documents Holder and Obama are hiding implicated Bush and/or exonerated Obama, they would have handed them over in a heartbeat. Nice try, though.

If Republicans Talked Like Democrats.... Immigration

Barack Obama (once again) circumvented Congress and the process by which laws have been made and passed in this country for oh, over 200 years to push and implement his personal agenda (part of which is to earn votes) when it comes to immigration and the DREAM Act.

If Republicans talked like Democrats: President Obama wants American children to starve to death by taking jobs from their parents and giving them to illegal immigrants.

If Republicans Talked Like Democrats......

If you're breathing, you're well aware of how the mainstream media treated Sarah Palin during the 2008 campaign and continues to do so to this day....
Stop for a minute and think about what the left would say about the attacks on her if she were a Democrat! The phrase "war on women" would be flying ALL OVER the place. We would be boycotting every media outlet and personality that exists. N.O.W. would be raging. But no... It's totally fine to bash conservative women, right? <shrugs>

If You Don't Like Barack Obama, You Might Be Racist..... Um, No.

Hey, here's a new one! You don't like Obama? You're racist.
The Congressional Black Caucus, in their inability to defend President Obama's record, is yet again diverting attention away from issues that actually matter to point the finger of racism at conservatives (again) who disagree with Obama's (failed) policies and believe him to be harmful to our nation as a whole.

Here's the thing...

If having a problem with the $5,000,000,000,000.00 he has added to our debt in the mere 3 years he has been in office makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with an unemployment rate that lingers between 8% - 10% makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with the net worth of the American household dropping 40% since he took office makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president ordering military invasion of other countries without the required Congressional approval makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president spending millions of our tax dollars each week on White House parties for celebrities and the American Elite and on extensive, exotic vacations for his family while the rest of us struggle to put food on our tables makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with the gross infringement of our first amendment rights to the extent of wire tapping, databases of all social media action, drones all over America spying on its citizens, and the military authority to detain any American citizen at any time without just cause makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president continually throwing Israel under the bus while claiming to have done more for their national security than any other president makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president who so partisan that he puts down and chastises the other party and always speaks down to the American people as if we are inferior makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president who disregards our legislative process by repeatedly circumventing Congress by signing executive orders for his own agenda makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president who wants the American people to support a trillion dollar jobs plan when his $800,000,000,000.00 jobs plan didn't create any jobs makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president who does nothing to lower the $4.00/gallon cost of gas when he and every other Democrat in the country bashed his predecessor for high gas prices (that were lower than they are now) makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president who refuses to claim any responsibility for the state of our economy and does NOTHING to fix it or point us in the direction of recovery (because he's too busy blaming the last guy) makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president who promised to close Guantanamo Bay but instead spent hundreds of millions of U.S. tax dollars to build the prisoners a state of the art soccer stadium makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president who vetoes a gas pipeline that would create tens of thousands of U.S. jobs and greener oil transport, but gives tens of billions of tax dollars to "green" energy companies that cease operation, close the doors, lay off workers and declare bankruptcy so they don't have to repay their "loans" makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president's extensive past associations with radical Marxists, Communists, Lenninists, Socialists, and violent activists (a.k.a. terrorists) makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president forcing a nationalized healthcare system on the American people that will cost taxpayers $2,000,000,000,000.00 and leave many Americans without access to needed care because they don't fall within the perimeters set by government review panels makes me racist, call me racist.
If having a problem with a president who fails to keep virtually every promise he made to the American people on the campaign trail makes me racist, call me racist.

If it is possible to dislike Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachmann or Hillary Clinton for any reason other than the simple fact that they're women, it's possible to dislike Barack Obama for any reason other than the simple fact that he's (half) black.  If any of the things above make me racist, call me racist. Otherwise, call me a patriot. 'Cause that's what I am. Now go focus on the real issues, thanks.

Why I DON'T Support Obama...

I am so over the "Why I Support Obama" poster all over the internet, Facebook, Twitter, blogs, etc... Pretty much the entire poster is incorrect, which is kind of funny, because it's even praised on the president's own website! Why I'm still shocked that he and his administration don't mind misreporting (cough-cough LYING cough-cough) information to the American people is a mystery, but somehow I am. Why I'm still shocked that people believe whatever they read on the internet without fact-checking it themselves is even more of a mystery... To that point, I couldn't help but correct the gross misrepresentation of facts listed on the poster in hopes that America might take notice and research the facts themselves (I did). To wit...

I know it's hard to read in this format, so here ya go:
1. CBO (Congressional Budget Office) now says the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) will cost TWICE what was predicted - $2TRILLION of OUR tax dollars. It also will kill a MILLION U.S. obs, cut Medicare by $500BILLION, de-fund mammograms & breast cancer screenings for MILLIONS of women in need (see your #3), and raise 18 taxes on the middle class.
2. Obama didn't end the war in Iraq. Bush did. Under the Status of Forces Agreement he made with Iraqi gov't in 2008. Obama asked for our troops to stay there longer. They said no. More than TWICE as many troops have died in Afghanistan in Obama's 3 years than in Bush's 8. Obama just made an agreement to keep our troops there 10 MORE YEARS.
3. Women already have access to free preventative health care if they need it (except the millions of women who don't have access under O-care ^ #1).
4. 2 years after signing LLFPA, women on Obama's staff make 18% LESS than men. 92.3% of the jobs lost under Obama were held by women. (Bureau of Labor Statistics)
5. Obama has spent $34BILLION of OUR tax dollars on creating green jobs... overseas. He vetoed the Keystone Pipeline that would have created tens of thousands of U.S. jobs (or more) and provided greener oil transport. He has given TENS OF BILLIONS of OUR dollars to at least 12 companies that promised to create green jobs and cleaner energy, but closed shop, laid off workers, and filed bankruptcy instead; all before producing anything.
6. College tuition has increased almost 500% in 25 years. Why are we blaming banks, not schools, for (voluntarily acquired) crippling student loan debt? For perspective, overall inflation for that time period is only 100%...
7. Obama hand-picked for his jobs czar Jeffrey Immelt, CEO of GE, who has paid $0 in taxes the last few years, despite record profits, AND has sent TENS OF THOUSANDS of U.S. jobs overseas. Wall Street has given Obama more $ than all GOP candidates combined. If the 1% were taxed 100% of their net worth, it would only run this country for a few days. Obama's policies hurt the poor and middle class...not millionaires and billionaires.
8. Unemployment was 7.8% when Obama took office. Since then, it has stayed between 8% and 10%, despite a TRILLION DOLLARS spent on jobs stimulus packages that he said would keep unemployment under 8%. Labor force participation is at its lowest level since 1981. Actual unemployment is around 15%, not 8%. Jobs lost vs. jobs "created" under Obama = net LOSS, not gain. You can't turn the Titanic around in a day, but a good captain can at least get it pointed in the right direction in 3 years. Obama hasn't, and we're sinking fast.
 Your vote for him was based on promises he hasn't kept. He has added $4Billion to our debt EVERY DAY he has been in office We're paying record gas prices during record unemployment. As a fellow American, I strongly urge you to reconsider your vote.

 Amazing, how easy it is to do a little research before posting stuff on the internet...

Left, Party Of Millions, Your Table Is Now Ready. Wisconsin Will Be Your Server.

Let's see if I have this right... Democrats cry racism and injustice over stricter voter ID laws and regulations, then accuse the Republican candidate of cheating when he wins.... Despite the fact that investigation upon investigation has revealed tens of thousands of votes cast by ineligible (nice word for illegal and/or dead) voters PER STATE. Priceless. The PEOPLE of Wisconsin have spoken. Loudly. TWICE. Why is it that when the majority of THE PEOPLE vote against the left, it isn't enough? They have to cry foul and try to find a way around what THE MAJORITY of THE PEOPLE want?? It happened in Cali on Prop 8, it happened in NC on Amendment 1, and now it's happening in Wisc with Governor Walker. I assure you, had the vote turned out differently, proclamations that THE PEOPLE had spoken would abound. Classic. P..S... You can't vote in union elections without proper ID. Oopsies!!

If Harry Truman Talked Like A Republican......

A friend for whom I have a tremendous amount of respect, but with whose politics I completely disagree posted the picture and quote on the left (punny!) from an anti-Tea Party page. It is the PERFECT example for why I started posting "If Republicans Talked Like Democrats" on my blog, so I had to share it...... after I gave it a makeover and added the text on the right (I am SO punny!).

The Republi.. Wait, No, The DEMOCRAT War On Women

A conservative media personality calls Sandra Fluke a slut and America goes into a full-on rage for months... Advertisers are pressed to pull their ads, people are told to boycott his show, every Democrat politician weighs in, NOW calls for war... It's ALL we hear from every media outlet, journalist, celebrity, politician, and...well...just about everyone, 24 hours a day for two months.
A liberal media personality publishes a photoshopped picture of conservative S. E. Cupp, made to look like she's performing oral sex - WITH A PENIS IN HER MOUTH - and... Crickets. Nothing. Except (surprisingly) from the women on The View; most specifically, Whoopi Goldberg (thank you!).  Rachel Maddow discussed the Sandra Fluke incident every day for months, but surprisingly has yet to come out in defense of her fellow female journalist... Roseanne Barr went so far in several interviews and numerous tweets to say S. E. got what she deserved (cough-cough-poorthingisjustjealous-cough)... Seriously??

I searched some sites that appeared to be outraged over the degrading of women a few months ago during the Sandra Fluke debacle for articles and references to both incidents. Based on the results, I'm having a hard time understanding how Republicans are the ones waging a war on women. I was so appalled by the results that I had to post them. Enjoy...

Huffington Post
Sandra Fluke: 17,500
S. E. Cupp: 0
Sandra Fluke: 35
S. E. Cupp: 0
Sandra Fluke: 83,900
S. E. Cupp: 0

Sandra Fluke: 134
S. E. Cupp: 0

New York Times
Sandra Fluke: 441
S. E. Cupp: 1

I'll stop there because I'm just getting mad again. I can't believe I'm spending any time on the diversion disguised as a war against women, but I'm sick and tired of the hypocrisy from the left; especially when it comes to this issue. Last time I checked, acceptable treatment of women didn't come with an exclusion clause for conservatives. Apparently I was wrong.

LGBT: Obama's Pawns

WHYYYY is the LGBT community falling to their knees in praise of Obama's (sudden) "evolutionary" support of same sex marriage?  Is the timing of his big announcement lost on everyone?? Just as he's been using women as pawns in his re-election campaign, he's using the gay community, too. And they're letting him. I have a lot of gay friends and I'm completely baffled as to their excitement over this whole thing. Actions always speak louder than words, and this is a prime example.
Why did he make his statement when he did? Because it's safe. He has had chance after chance to voice his support of gay marriage and influence both voters and legislators, but he conveniently managed to "come out" AFTER all the votes across the country on the issue (save a ballot initiative this November in Maine and possibly in Maryland and Washington), but with enough time left to gain greater support from the LGBT community BEFORE the presidential election in November. LOVE a great coincidence. Love TWO great coincidences even more.... Obama's announcement also came just after public opinion on the issue passed the 50% mark.  Seriously? Come on...
I'm not arguing either side of the same-sex marriage debate, but whether or not you support it, you have to admit his timing is a little off.

Here's why...

February 2012: A bill legalizing same-sex marriage passed both houses in the New Jersey legislature but was vetoed by Governor Christie.
Obama: (crickets)

February 2012: Washington state legislature voted to legalize same-sex marriage. Residents who oppose the bill, however, are working to gain enough signatures to place a referendum repealing the law on the November ballot.
Obama: (crickets)

March 2012: Maryland Governor O'Malley signed into law a bill legalizing same-sex marriage. As in Washington, opponents are trying to procure enough signatures to put a repeal referendum on the November ballot.
Obama: (crickets)

May 2012: North Carolina voted on the controversial Amendment One bill. I live in NC and trust me...this amendment is ALL anyone - including politicians and the media - talked about for months before the vote to ban same-sex marriage....which passed.
Obama: (crickets throughout the months and months and months and months of discussing and debating the amendment that garnered enormous interest nationwide.....but made his big announcement of support the day AFTER the bill to ban same-sex marriage passed.)

Scheduled for November 2012: Maine ballot initiative in November election to legalize same-sex marriage after it passed in 2009 but was repealed by voter referendum.
Obama: (crickets)

May 2011: Delaware legislature legalized civil unions for same-sex couples.
Obama: (crickets)

July 2011: New York legalized same-sex marriage.
Obama: (crickets)

2012 & 2011: Colorado tried to pass a law recognizing same-sex civil unions, but failed both times.
Obama: (crickets)

It's hard for me to see sincerity there. Although, I do have to give him a little credit. He did promise transparency in his last campaign....  I can see right through him. How 'bout you?

If Republicans Talked Like Democrats....

Fact: Black women under the age of 50 are twice as likely to develop and / or die from breast cancer than Caucasian women. Obamacare raises the required age for covered mammograms and breast cancer screenings for women who cannot afford them from 40 to 50.

If Republicans Talked Like Democrats: "President Obama and Democrats hate black women and want them to die of breast cancer on the hospital floor. Stop the Democrat war against black women!"

See? Things aren't always what they seem. Educate yourself, America.
