Obama facing mounting questions over ‘you didn’t build that’ remark!

The Washington Post ^ | September 2, 2012 | Amy Gardner

CHARLOTTE — After being pummeled for days at the Republican National Convention for his remark that business owners “didn’t build that,” President Obama heads to the Democratic National Convention in North Carolina this week facing mounting questions about how he will respond to charges that he is hostile to free enterprise.
On Sunday, senior Obama advisers suggested that they will not address the anti-business allegations directly but will instead try to turn the tables on their GOP rivals by accusing them of being dishonest about what Obama meant. David Plouffe, a senior White House adviser, said in an interview Sunday on ABC News that Republican Mitt Romney’s campaign is engaged in a broader pattern of dishonesty and is “built on a tripod of lies.” Plouffe cited accusations that Obama has gutted the work requirement for welfare and “raided” Medicare to pay for the nation’s new health-care law as other examples of untruths coming from the GOP.
The Obama team thinks that it has effectively dealt with the “build that” attacks and that the issue is overblown — the “drill, baby, drill” of 2012, a rallying cry for the right but ultimately one with limited appeal in the broader electorate...

In case you ever wondered what Barack Obama did as a “community organizer”

wordpress ^ | September 3, 2012 | Dan from Squirrel Hill

The Daily Caller reports:

President Barack Obama was a pioneering contributor to the national subprime real estate bubble, and roughly half of the 186 African-American clients in his landmark 1995 mortgage discrimination lawsuit against Citibank have since gone bankrupt or received foreclosure notices.

As few as 19 of those 186 clients still own homes with clean credit ratings, following a decade in which Obama and other progressives pushed banks to provide mortgages to poor African Americans.

The startling failure rate among Obama’s private sector clients was discovered during The Daily Caller’s review of previously unpublished court information from the lawsuit that a young Obama helmed as the lead plaintiff’s attorney.

In case you ever wondered what Barack Obama did as a “community organizer,” now you know. He forced banks to give mortgages to people who could not afford to pay them back – and the results were exactly what anyone with a brain would predict.
Either Obama was too dumb to predict that these mortgages would end in disaster – or he was smart enough to know what would happen, but pushed for the mortgages anyway. Either way, his actions prove that is not fit to be in any kind of position of power.

Little Johnnie's Weekend Assignment



The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were very
excited. Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a
talk on productive salesmanship.

Little Sally led off: "I sold girl scout cookies and I made $30" she
said proudly, "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's
civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success."

"Very good, Sally" said the teacher.

Little Jenny was next, "I sold magazines" she said, "I made $45 and
I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current
events."

"Very good, Jenny" said the teacher..

Eventually, it was Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath, as
Johnny always had a 'different' take on things.

Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of
cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467" he said.

"$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?"
Toothbrushes" said Johnny.

"Toothbrushes" echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly sell
enough tooth brushes to make that much money?"

"I found the busiest corner in town" said Johnny, "I set up a Dip &
Chip stand, I gave everybody who walked by a free sample." They all
said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog crap!" 

 Then I would say, "It is dog crap. Wanna buy a toothbrush? 

I used the President Obama method of giving you something shitty, dressing it up so it looks good, telling you it's free, and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth." 

Obama's Dilemma

Chuck Morse Speaks ^ | September 3, 2012 | Chuck Morse

President Obama has two options at the Democratic National Convention. He can either take credit for four years of accomplishment, credit from left point of view, or he can lie and pretend he's a conservative. The second option, the one that involves his pretending to be conservative, worked wonders for him in 2008.
Indeed, from the left-wing vantage point, Barack Obama has been a a great success. He further centralized the government by expanding the fiat power of the presidency. He did an end run around the elected Congress with presidential directives and an undeclared war. He moved to sieze an entire industry, about 20% of the American economy with his creation of Obamacare. He preserved the size and scope of government at all levels during an economic recession, with government experiencing a drop in tax revenues, by borrowing almost a trillion dollars and using the money to prop up the government, especially his liberal friends and allies.
He brought law-suits against states trying to enforce Federal law such as Arizona enforcing laws dealing with illegal aliens. He refused to support congressional laws such as the Defense of Marriage Act. He strengthened the police power of the government by adding teeth to the USA Patriot Act. His Attorney General Eric Holder ran interference for MERS, the mortgage servicing giant responsible for the robo-signing scandal and a former client of his. He failed to prosecute the corrupt practices of liberal corporations such as Democratic bundler and former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine's MF Global, which cannot account for over a billion dollars. He also failed to prosecute the liberal Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley. He failed to promote public policies that would advance oil and natural gas production.
The sum total of Barack Obama's policies has been the institutionalization of lower economic expectations which has contributed to poverty and dependency. His anti-business stance has contributed to stagnation and lack of innovation. His weakness and appeasement abroad has contributed to a weakening of American sovereignty and insecurity in the world. All of these things and more fit hand in glove with the left-wing agenda.
But owning up to these things publicly would lead to his losing the election so then where would he and his allies be. This is why we should expect him to lie. What else can he do?

US motorists swallow sky-high Labor Day weekend gas prices (Obama's Fault!)

reuters ^ | 9/3/2012 | Kevin Murphy

U.S. motorists hit the road in large numbers this Labor Day weekend, undeterred by gas prices that are the highest ever heading into the holiday in part due to Hurricane Isaac, which forced the closure of oil refineries on the Gulf Coast.

The average price of regular gas nationally was $3.83 per gallon on Friday, 21 cents higher than a year ago, according to AAA. And the price on Monday will likely easily beat the Labor Day record of $3.68 set in 2008, the non-profit automobile association said.

The weekend is one of the busiest on American roads.

In Overland Park, Kansas, Shelly Faught and a group of relatives packed up several vehicles for a drive to a lake home in Arkansas despite having to pay $3.79 per gallon at the pump.

"We needed the escape," Faught said as she gassed up a pickup truck hooked to a pop-up camper. "We were a little nervous about the gas prices rising but we had this planned."

Obama, Subprime Mortgage Pioneer!

Iowans Send Message to Obama

Yahoo ^ | 09/01/2012 | Devin Dwyer

President Obama received a less than warm welcome and a warning upon arrival at the airport here on the second stop of his Iowa visit, which was aimed at recapturing some of the magic the state gave his run to the White House in 2008.

Greeting Air Force One as it touched down under sunny skies and sultry heat was a hand-painted banner draped across the top of an airplane hangar that reads, "Obama Welcome to SUX - We Did Build This." "SUX" is the airport code for Sioux City.

The message appeared to be a response President Obama's "you didn't build that" remark from a July campaign rally, when he was trying to explain that government - not businesses - constructed public infrastructure on which the economy relies. Republicans have used the four words to attack Obama as out of touch with the realities of owning and operating a small business.

STUNNING! First Audit Results In The Federal Reserve’s Nearly 100 Year History!

Sanders Blog ^ | July 21, 2011 | Senator Bernie Sanders

The first top-to-bottom audit of the Federal Reserve uncovered eye-popping new details about how the U.S. provided a whopping $16 trillion in secret loans to bail out American and foreign banks and businesses during the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. An amendment by Sen. Bernie Sanders to the Wall Street reform law passed one year ago this week directed the Government Accountability Office to conduct the study. "As a result of this audit, we now know that the Federal Reserve provided more than $16 trillion in total financial assistance to some of the largest financial institutions and corporations in the United States and throughout the world," said Sanders. "This is a clear case of socialism for the rich and rugged, you're-on-your-own individualism for everyone else."
Among the investigation's key findings is that the Fed unilaterally provided trillions of dollars in financial assistance to foreign banks and corporations from South Korea to Scotland, according to the GAO report. "No agency of the United States government should be allowed to bailout a foreign bank or corporation without the direct approval of Congress and the president," Sanders said.
The non-partisan, investigative arm of Congress also determined.......
