SORRY THAT OBAMA COULDN’T CLEAN UP EIGHT YEARS’ WORTH OF GEORGE W. BUSH’S BULLSHIT IN JUST UNDER TWO YEARS IN OFFICE, AMERICA. BY ALL MEANS, GO CRAWLING RIGHT BACK TO THE PEOPLE WHO GOT US IN THIS MESS IN THE FIRST PLACE.
Lately I feel like somebody made a big mess and I’ve got my mop and I’m mopping the floor and the folks who made the mess are there (saying) ‘you’re not mopping fast enough. You’re not mopping the right way. It’s a socialist mop.’
Even for the small amount of time Bill O’Reilly actually gives Obama without interrupting him (the fucking President!), he says some pretty rational stuff. Also, almost everything O’Reilly says is bullshit, buzz words and propaganda.
"GOP leaders, who were briefed by Obama at the White House before the speech, harshly criticized the president’s call for higher taxes on wealthier Americans.
"Any plan that starts with job-destroying tax hikes is a non-starter," said House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio. "Republicans are fighting for meaningful spending cuts and fighting against any tax increases on American small businesses.""
Wealthy Americans ≢ small business.
Taxing wealthy Americans doesn’t kill jobs because they either route money back into their own multi-billion dollar corporations or they buy items that have no direct impact on the economy. Grrr, I hope Obama doesn’t completely cave on this too.
Also, lol meaningful spending cuts. The public service agencies make up so little of the budget that it’s laughable. You know where we should cut the budget? $695,000,000,000 That’s how much money the military got in 2010. Federal educational spending? $46,700,000,000. That’s almost 15 times less. Something is seriously wrong here when we are willing to spend roughly 648.3 billion more on killing people than on educated them.
According to GOP sources, the decision to cede the 2012 election to Obama came after rank-and-file Republicans agreed that grinding the president down to nothing and pushing him to the brink of insanity was far more in line with the Republican Party’s core principles than actually controlling the White House, making laws, or governing the country.
If you’ve got student loans, you’re going to want to watch this video.
President Obama just took two major steps to make life easier for people with student loans, and there’s a good chance you or someone you know will benefit from them really soon. After you’ve watched, tweet/re-blog/Facebook it to get out the good word.
It’s a litany not of broken promises as the Republicans claim, but of dreams dashed on the rocks of partisanship. We elected the dream, the audacity of hope and promise of change. We ran headlong into an entrenched oligarchy with enough money and enough media control to persuade too many of our fellow citizens that the sky is purple and they have to reclaim this nation from some nebulous nefarious force, using code words for taking it back from minorities, immigrants, non-fundamentalists, gays, welfare queens and entitlement recipients, even when they themselves were recipients of those “entitlements.” We are losing our country to those who wish to take it back to the late 19th century instead of forward into the 21st. We can fight them for our future or let them drag us back into the past. It is time to take back our country.
No, you can’t deny women their basic rights and pretend it’s about your “religious freedom.” If you don’t like birth control, don’t use it. Religious freedom doesn’t mean you can force others to live by your own beliefs. - Barack Obama
oh, BO. You understand me.
Oh, Obammmaaaaa. : D
Okay y’all. Can anyone find a citation for this? Because I couldn’t, and I refuse to believe that 21k+ people think this is an actual quote just because some person put text on an image of the president. Then again, this IS the internet.
What’s said on the campaign trail, you know, those folks don’t have a lot of responsibilities. They’re not commander in chief. And when I see the casualness with which some of these folks talk about war I’m reminded of the costs involved in war. I’m reminded that the decision that I have to make in terms of sending our young men and women into battle and the impact that has on their lives, the impact it has on our national security, the impact it has on our economy. This is not a game. There’s nothing casual about it.
