Obama Blasts Republicans For Opposing Campaign Finance Reform Bill

July 30, 2010 by  

Obama Blasts Republicans For Opposing Campaign Finance Reform BillOn Monday, President Obama criticized Republicans in the Senate for blocking the passage of a campaign finance bill designed to force unions, corporations and other organizations to disclose their sponsorship of political advertisements.

The measure, which was narrowly passed in the House last month, was crafted by Democrats to reduce the influence that special interest groups have in elections. If passed, the bill would no longer allow the majority of organizations to run advertisement campaigns without publicly taking responsibility for them.

"You’d think that reducing corporate and even foreign influence over our elections would not be a partisan issue," said Obama.

Many Republicans in the Senate have publicly opposed the legislation because they feel that it infringes on First Amendment rights by attempting to silence critics of the administration and its supporters.

The GOP has also criticized the bill because it exempts organizations that have existed for more than 10 years and that have at least 500,000 dues-paying members, according to CNN. This loophole allows nonprofits such as the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the AARP to continue to run political ads without full disclosure.

"Citizens who are members of other grassroots groups will be muzzled by this legislation for no reason other than that they belong to a group without the financial and lobbying muscle to exempt itself from this bill," said David Bossie, president of Citizens United, an organization dedicated to restoring the government to the control of Americans.

"This bill is nothing more than incumbent protection in its worst and most cynical form," he added.

    I notice that the dems want this NOW after it was predicted that big money would be needed to unseat Nobama!!! It might seem that they might be getting some honor if it wasn’t for that little tidbit!! I hope it backfires on them!!!

    • Side Winder

      LOL!
      Yes…my reluctance to embrace Sarah Palin was not unfounded….

      Look at what the Bob Livingston Letter had to say about Sarah Palin:

      “Government is not asleep. They continually create myths and counter myths to keep up peak confusion. They create straw conservatives or “populist” talking heads like Sarah Palin. Anybody or anything which appears to be taking anti- government root is quickly twisted, diluted, or taken over by government propagandists and provocateurs.”

      Well, there you have it….from Bob himself.

      Just because some jackass proclaims himself or herself to be a “Christian” does not mean “Jack.”

      I said a couple of months ago, that I am not at all interested in reading Sara’s book to find out what she’s all about. I told a poster, that I was much more interested in her off hand comments and unguarded speech.

      A vote for Palin, in 2012 is a vote for the system…she’s a fraud.

      You vote for her, you might as well vote Democrat, because all you will do is preserve the status quo.

      I have spoken.

      • meteorlady

        So this article has to do with campaign finance and you rail about Palin? Why does she scare all of you so much? If she’s a fraud, then most people will find that for themselves. If she isn’t, then she might garner support.

        Don’t get me wrong – I’m not for her, just wondering why she is so scary that people keep putting her down again and again. If she’s not important, why bring her up?

        • American Conservative

          Well, it’s not really a safe argument historically speaking to say, “If she’s a fraud, then most people will find that for themselves. If she isn’t, then she might garner support.” This is true ultimately, but look at what happens to their nations *before* they are found out to be frauds.

          Take our current Preident, for example. He said some very bold things about reading bills and letting voters look at them before passing them when he was running for office. Is this not fraud? It’s not that frauds are not found out. It’s that they are found out too late, after much damage has been done.

  • Jana

    No wonder the Repubs don’t want this bill. It’s only for new organizations under 10 yrs. of age. Big deal.It barely passed the House so obviously many Dems. didn’t like this bill either. Obama loves to play that blame game. I think this part says a lot.

    From the piece:
    “Many Republicans in the Senate have publicly opposed the legislation because they feel that it infringes on First Amendment rights by attempting to silence critics of the administration and its supporters.

    The GOP has also criticized the bill because it exempts organizations that have existed for more than 10 years and that have at least 500,000 dues-paying members, according to CNN.

    What can you say about a guy whose guiding philosophy is strangely similar to a song title [Whatever Lola Wants, Lola Gets]. In this case, it has been modified by time and politics. Now, it’s more like Whatever der Fuhrer Wants, der Fuhrer Gets.
    It makes me want to stand up and salute – with a dazzling display of melodic flatulence. A one anna two, anna . . .

    • JC

      The Kenyan needs to disclose the financing behind his education and political rise before he “blasts” anybody. And while he’s at it can he prove he’s an American?

      • http://yahoo gay robertson

        Ditto—right on!

        • Lee

          I would love to see both Obama and his “wife” bring out ALL of their hidden papers! I still do not see why he felt it was incumbent on them to seal their school records from high school on, and all of their papers from Chicago! Could that house been a fraudulent purchase? Could there be something else in their background they don’t want seen? Just why isn’t he producing a real birth certificate? These questions have been asked time and again! They need to be addressed! Also, I wonder: Just what will be missing in the white house when they leave?

          • Side Winder

            OK Lee….
            Obama gets busted for being an illegal and thrown out of office….then what?

            America’s problems solved?
            You are kidding yourself. You are polarized and focused on what they want you to be focused on….politics.

            Its what they are not talking about that you need to be concerned with.

            The direction of America, and out system of Corporatism…those are the real problems…not who runs it. Because the system will be the same whether a Democrat or Republican takes the helm.

            You don’t quite get it do you?

          • TIME

            Hi Side Winder,

            I am sure that most folks here are very much Dishartened and Frustrated; thus they lash out at who stands in the center view, thats the natural human nature flow.

            As Barry Soetoro has made a rock solid case that he is not only a 100% total arrogant narcissist who is root bound in the Marxist teachings he is the CENTER point of this thrust, thats again why folks say what they say.

            You are 100% right on the point that in this case to remove the head of the snake will do little to nothing now.

            Its time to take back the country step by step brick by brick, and this job will not be over any time soon. This will go on for years to come.

            Afterall we all need to grasp that they have made laws that protect themselfs from YOU their employers.

            So perhaps in 50 years we can root them all out. So after the November 2010 elections its not over yet.
            I figure it will take until 2050 or later to root them all out and remove / repeal countlee thousands of laws from the books.

          • Claire

            TIME– 50 years? The majority of us will not live long enough to see all the evil rooted out of our government. I do not believe it will ever happen.

          • http://?? Joe H.

            sidewinder,
            Does it solve all of the problems? Of course not, but it is a good place to start!!! One must have a starting point and that seems to be a good one at this time!!

      • Side Winder

        JC…playing politics will accomplish nothing.

        Bashing Obama will only help to elect Republicans. Stop playing party politics. This country went to Hell in a Hand basket under a republican administration, so obviously, Republicans do not work for us either.

        The “Blame it all on Democrats” game is what both parties want. Both party’s engage in the “Blame Game.”

        Its so much bigger than party politics.
        Those who are still at the party politics level are like kindergarten children trying to attend college.

        The problem JC…is the “System” that both Democrats and Republicans operate.
        Its not the parties…its the system that has to go.

        And all this fear that Obama is a Socialist is a total joke.

        Hitler ran on the Socialist Party. Once in office, he ran government as a Fascist.

        Only 1 shade of difference between Socialism and Fascism. And that difference is who controls the means of production.

        So while everybody is up in arms over whether or not Obama is a closet socialist….they fail to understand that they already have been living under a Corporatist system of politics and economics for a very long time.
        And Corporatism is a form of Fascism.

        Those who are up in arms and squawking about Obama…amuse me.
        They amuse me because they fail to see the obvious. They always do.

        • Charie

          Think you’ve got that backwards, sidewinder. Hitler said he was a Messiah who would lead his country to its place in the sun. And he took them to hell instead. I find him to have a lot in common with Barack Obama who said he was the one we had been waiting for and has begun our headlong plunge into communism.

          Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know…….. It’s all George Bush’s fault. You talk as though you just fell off the turnip truck. You can look to the beginning of last century to see where our long journey into socialism began.

          Are you sure you’re not Obama? Your attitude, condescension and arrogance are pretty well stinking up this space.

      • Animal

        exactly

  • Ron

    Mr. Obama,
    You need to take a hike. You wanted to muzzle the little guy so that we could not speak against you! You wanted to shut us up so that we could not tell anyone how bad you are. Mr. Obama, you have another thing coming. WE are going to campaign against you! We are going to fight your party and any other socialist Communists that you have surrounding you and we are going to make sure that you don’t win any more elections. Then we are going to take you to court and make sure that you will be doing time in a maximum security prison. Mr. President you and your cronies are going to stop. We are going to make sure of that! November 2nd is the start. After we get rid of Nancy and Harry, we are coming after you! I hope you get used to wearing handcuffs, because that is the only kind of jewelry you are going to be allowed to wear where we are going to be sending you!

        Stuff it! Neither PRESIDENT Bush or VICE-PRESIDENT Cheney did half the damage this troll and his little minion have done in 18 months! I didn’t agree with the wars, either, but since we have them, turn our guys loose, and let the devil sort it out! Ragheads are not people! Nor are they animals! They are lower than that! Either let our guys fight properly, or start pulling them out, and live with the fact that the hotshot “Change” “president” is a coward, a traitor and illegally in office!

        • JCfromDC

          If we’re going to bring our troops home and I mean ALL of them, we should use them to scure OUR borders, not Afghanistan’s or Iraq’s or Pakistan. They can’t do it themselves, why should we? The Russians were in Afghan foe how long? The British? Waste of time, resources and lives. I say 100,000 troops tanks and Bradley’s facing Mexico

      • Robin, Arcadia, IN

        Sue…. Barry is our president now. Are you stuck in the past? What civil rights are you referring to? Your post was vague….

      • Side Winder

        Thank you so much Sue.
        I am against Both parties.

        But you are right, so much damage happened to the Bill of Rights under the Bush Patroit Act I don’t think we will ever recover. Patriot, was Anti-Freedom.

        I did a side by side comparison of the Patriot Act and the Bill of rights….

        I made it to the 8th Amendment….Amendments 1-8 were totally violated under Patriot…it was at that point I got sick, and shut everything down. I couldn’t take it. Patriot was an all out assault on out God Given Freedoms by the Bush Administration.

        Any fool who say, “But Bush kept us safe….” needs to go get his head examined. Patriot, signed into law by the very hand of George W Bush himself, did more damage to this country and our way of life that “Osama Bin Laden,” if you believe that load to SH*t, could only dream of.

        Yeah, go ahead…trade away your Liberty for Safety…see where that gets you in the long run….

        This is what happens when you spend your time after school playing video games instead of studying.

          what is your opinion on p.j blue beam and haarp??

  • TJ

    Thank goodness for the few clear minds that prevailed in the senate to block this legislation. Yes, we need to prevent foreign entities and governments from influencing our election process, and yes we need to find a way to limit our current, runaway, “government-for- sale” politics. But, for the sake of the nation, we do not need to do it by abrogating our First Amendment rights. These people are supposed to be the brightest among us; they need to find another way. We must continue to remind our legislators as we write to them, that they were sworn to defend the Constitution of the United States, including all of its amendments. If they can’t live up to that oath, then we’ll find people who will; it’s our duty as citizens.

    • Carolina Mom

      Let’s not be fooled here, there is already a law that prohibits foreign interests from contributing to US campaigns, so that IS NOT the purpose of this proposed law. Obama lied about it during his “State of the Union” speech, and has continued to spout this lie since then.

      It’s SOLE purpose is to hinder the first amendment rights of the Tea Party, and any other newer, conservative, grassroots organization that doesn’t have the political capital to negotiate a loophole (NRA). I say thank you to the common sense Republicans and Democrats who saw through the ruse and voted against it.

      • independant thinker

        The NRA did not “negotiate a loophole” It was given to them freely by the democrats to try and stop their opposition to the bill.

        A NRA official (LaPierre perhaps) said “Are we glad the NRA is exempted, absolutely. Do we still think this bill is deploriable and restricts the free speach rights of people in elections, ABSOLUTELY.” This may be an exact quote because I cannot find the original but this is what was said.

        • JCfromDC

          And the NRA threw in with Harry Reid. Woe to us all! I’m demanding a refund of my dues. They’ll give it back, they have in the Past. I’ll send it to GOA instead.

    • eddie47d

      TJ; “takes away First Admendment rights -Nonsense. If you say something that is not true be man enough to take responsibility for what is said. Political ads should have the same criteria or do you want to make it even easier for them to lie to us.

    • Side Winder

      TJ…

      ““government-for- sale” politics”

      Thats our Corporatist system. The only way to “Limit” that is to scrap that type of system.

      Public awareness is key. Once the public actually understands the nature of our problems, we can build a consensus, and demand actual change.

      Under Corporatism, our representatives pick and choose what business they prefer to represent…based on campaign finance money and special favors. The biggest companies are global…so…its not beyond reason our leaders seem to be selling out to foreign interests.

      We need to reduce the role of government to that of law enforcement or the traditional “Night Watchman” role, and return to Free Market Capitalism. That would end all influence peddling right there, and make it illegal to do so. Under this current system….its really not illegal, not if they go about it correctly.

      Its the only real answer.

      • Jeeper

        You keep saying “scrap the system” or words to that effect.

        Exactly what “system?” Please be specific.

    • Side Winder

      You are not suggesting more party politics are you?

      Whats your plan? Find something to “Nail” Obam on, get him thrown out of office…then what? Elect a Republican?

      If we look to past republican Administrations what do we see if we are honest?

      Blown budgets, deficit spending, unnecessary wars….{See the Downing Street Memo} The Patroit Act’s all out assault on the Bill of Rights… Tax breaks to companies out sourcing American jobs to overseas labor markets….Too much to list here, but it gets worse…

      You…don’t want a return to THOSE times…do you? Because THOSE times…were a disaster.
      And we cannot blame it all on Bush. The GOP was firmly behind Bush…so this reflects their mindset.

      And Obama’s trying to “Tweak” the current system and keep it going….What we really need to do is scrap this system.

        Side Winder—Now you’re talking sense. I am all for scrapping both parties. Both parties got America into this chaotic mess. The Dems are as bad as the Republicans and vice versa.

I never in my life have seen a sorrier bunch of politicians. I could rant and rave all night. lol

  • Ned

    More importantly, it would exempt the big unions, AFLCIO, SIEU, etc. who pour more money into the Demonrat’s coffers than anyone else. So the bill would expose all the little people who give money to their party of choice, but all the money bags would be exempt…

    Why Is Nazi Collaborator Kapo George Soros, Obama’s Puppeteer, Still Alive?

    NATIONAL WRITERS SYNDICATE
    http://www.nationalwriterssyndicate.com

    by Bruce Eden

    Why is Nazi Collaborator Kapo George Soros, Obama’s Puppeteer, Still Alive? Radio and Fox TV talk show host Glenn Beck says that a watchdog steered him to the collusion … between Barrack Obama, George Soros, Al Gore, Goldman Sachs, Franklin Raines (super crooked Fannie Mae head), CCX (Chicago Climate Exchange), and Generation Investment Management (GIM-London based co-founded by AL Gore).

    The “privately-owned” Chicago Climate Exchange (“CCX”) is heavily influenced by Obama cohorts Al Gore and Maurice Strong. For years now Strong and Gore have been cashing in on that lucrative cottage industry known as man-made global warming. Strong is on the board of directors of the Chicago Climate Exchange, which Wikipedia-describes as “the world’s first and North America’s only legally binding greenhouse gas emission registry reduction system for emission sources and offset projects in North America and Brazil.” Billionaire George Soros is heavily invested in Brazil’s state-run oil company, Petrobras, that is taking over the Gulf Oil rigs that Obama has put moratoriums against drilling. Soros has $900 Million invested in Petrobras. He also received $2 Billion of American taxpayers’ monies from the Obama Administration, in order to buy and build more Gulf oil rigs that are drilling even deeper than the current BP oil rig that caused the disaster.

    Soros is involved in the Chicago Climate Exchange (“CCX”), which if the Cap and Trade Bill is passed, will give the names in the cabal $10 TRILLION per year in profits–on the backs of American taxpayers. This constitutes a fraud, embezzlement and extortion by the Obama cabal.

    Soros has warrants out for his arrest in Italy, France, Belgium, Thailand and other countries for manipulating these countries’ economies and financial markets to the point of collapsing those countries’ economies. Soros is manipulating the American financial markets as well as manipulating Obama administration policy and agenda. Soros has come out and said that in order to have one-world government, we need to collapse the American economy. He is doing this right now by manipulating the derivative market and causing trillions to be shifted out of the American economy and into the World Bank and other clandestine banking organization, as well as lining his pockets with insane amounts of money.

    But, the worst thing about George Soros is that he is/was a Nazi sympathizer that killed many Jews (his own people). The proof is in the “pudding”. In a CBS 60 Minutes interview by Steve Kroft, on Dec. 20, 1998, terribly shocking admissions came out of Soros’s own mouth. Britain’s own Hungarian Jewish emigre’, Soros is known, by his own admission, to have had his character shaped, still today, by his experience during the Nazi occupation of his native land. Then, by his own admission, during those awful months, teenager Soros had been employed as a supposed gentile, in assisting the implementation the Nazi program of looting, and then exterminating, Soros’s own fellow Jews.

    What came out of Soros’s mouth in that interview was a set of cold-blooded admissions which should have shocked any reader of celebrated U.S. journalist Ben Hecht’s account given in a former best-seller documentary, Perfidy!, on the Eichmann case. When Soros was questioned by Kroft, as to how he reacted to this experience as a teen-age runner for the Eichmann apparatus, Soros displayed not only his total lack of conscience at the time, but insisted, still in 1998, on justifying, still today, what he had done for the Eichmann apparatus back then. That CBS interview elicited from Soros’s autobiographical accounts, presented an image of Soros’s mind which, still today, makes the blood run cold.

    CBS’s Kroft asked Soros:
    “And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.”

    Soros replied:
    “Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that’s when my character was made.”

    Soros had gone on in that broadcast, to reply to Kroft, that he felt no guilt whatsoever. In fact, according to the introduction to his father’s book, which Soros himself wrote, “these were the happiest days of his life.” Soros had added: “It is a sacreligious thing to say, but these ten months [of the Nazi occupation] were the happiest times of my life…. We led an adventurous life and we had fun together.”
    So, the question begs: Why is George Soros still alive? Why hasn’t the Simon Wiesenthal Center and/or Nazi-hunters arrested Soros, tried him and executed him? Soros was a Nazi collaborator; a Kapo.
    The Kapo’s task was to carry out the orders of the Nazi SS and to ensure absolute control over the prisoners in the work camps and concentration camps. Many of these Kapos tyrannized the Jewish prisoners with a cruelty equal to that of the SS, motivated both by the desire to curry favor among the SS as well as by sadistic inclinations. The term Kapo became synonymous with a cruel and egocentric person who oppresses, tortures, and exploits others. This definition fits George Soros to the tee. He is an egomaniac who oppresses and tortures others for his own benefit, profit and sadism.

    As a fitting reputation to Simon Wiesenthal’s book of memoirs, “The Murderers Among Us”, published in 1967, George Soros, made his billions at the expense of human beings and is therefore a “Murderer Among Us”.

    So, I ask the question again: Why is George Soros still alive?

      Bruce,

      Great post, thanks.

    • Lisa in Texas

      Good post, Bruce!

      This proposed amendment is yet another tool for the agenda. We ARE in the times of good vs. evil.

      I pray we find what it takes to march the criminals in the white house OUT and pronto! How have we, as Americans, allowed an evil obomination to take place?? What is the punishment for treason?

      Call me a ‘birther’, call me whatever makes you happy. The truth is rather scary and unimaginable to many. Denial maybe? The media has done a great job in masking the truth.

      It may be too late to save our nation but, my faith dictates be diligent.

      • Side Winder

        Yeah…I was never comfortable in reducing things to its simplest terms of “Good Vs Evil.”

        Bush did that….What an idiot.

        The world is rarely that uncomplicated. Its more of a matter of perspective….

        Example: 2 people doing good works…can be at total odds with one another. Depends on who their doing good works for…and if those people are allies….or NOT.

        Its almost never, good vs evil…that’s for simpletons and morons.

    • Lee

      Wow, Bruce! I didn’t have any idea! Just thought Soros was a little greedy jew who made it big here in the states, and just decided to go to the other side! Didn’t know he was a leader on that side all this time, and, it explains why he never has objected to people calling him a “Nazi!”

    • Side Winder

      Yes, Nazi’s and Socialists…

      To some…they seem worlds apart.

      But its all a matter of recalibrating your perspectives.

      But I keep saying, they are separated by only 1 shade of gray.

      Our current Corporatist/Fascist system has advanced light years beyond the crude tactics of Hitler’s Third Reich.

      I laugh at the hysteria and fear that Obama is a closet Socialist…when these very same fools seem fine in their obliviousness that they live under a form of fascism already, and have for 70+ years….LOL!

    If not for the NRA backroom dealmaking, the DISCLOSE bill would have never even made it this far. The NRA may have shot themselves in the foot on this one. In my opinion they slept with the devil. The AARP was already on my boycott list, and the NRA has just joined them. Neither will ever get a cent from me again.
    Organizations such as Gun Owners of America and AMAC or ASA appear to be better alternatives.

    Money should be taken out of politics as much as possible. Anyone supporting a candidate or viewpoint should be willing to stand up and be counted. The rich elite who have been running our country since its inception need to be exposed. The public has a right to know who is trying to manipulate them.

    • Jana

      John D,
      It should be, but that will never happen in our lifetime. It will only get worse. They make laws and then find loopholes around them. Making another law to hurt the newcomers and the small groups is not the answer.
      We need all new congress men and women to come in who have lived on this economy and know whats going on in this world. We need to stop the career politician. That will only happen by our votes. Again money is a major factor, but congress makes laws to be broken it seems. They won’t even honor the border laws.

  • J.Michael

    Once again we see you just can’t pass something as simple as,you put out a political ad you take responsibility for it,no matter who you are. You’d have to be blind and deaf not to know alot of these entities give money to both sides of the aisle. I do not see how this can be a First Amendment issue. You put out an ad,take responsibility for it. Pretty simple. This is part of the issue that “We the People” want to know,where does the money comes from? We should know where these political whores are getting the money.

    • GregS

      J.Michael, you seem to have missed the point. The large labor unions, which support mostly Democrats, would be exempted from this bill, because they fall within the loopholes (i.e. they have existed for more than 10 years, and they have at least 500,000 dues-paying members). Therefore, this IS a First Amendment Issue, because the bill does NOT treat all groups equally. Why should some groups be required to reveal their donors, while others would not? If NO groups were exempted from this bill, that would have been a different matter altogether.

      • dan of arizona

        yea but if there where 40 million illegals paying dues wouldnt that make them obligated as the rest?

        • GregS

          Dan, I’m not clear as to what you are asking. Are you implying that 40 million illegals are parts of smaller groups (less than 500,000 members), which would not be exempted by this bill, and therefore would expose illegals who donated to those groups? If so, I think that’s wishful thinking on your part. The reality of this bill is that smaller citizen’s groups (mostly those who oppose the Democrats) will be intimidated and discouraged from making political contributions, because of the expense and red tape involved in having to list their donors, every time they create a political campaign ad for any particular candidate. That is the main intent of this bill. It’s a disposable, quick-and-dirty tool that the Democrats are trying to use in order to keep their majorities in Congress in November. This is why they are exempting the large labor unions (usually Democratic supporters) from the bill, with the loopholes that they created. The Democrats are fully aware that the bill is unconstitutional, but they don’t care, because there is not enough time for the courts to strike it down before November.

  • Marilyn

    To some degree, we all are slaves. Usually the fear of losing our homes, jobs, social status, blah blah blah.

    At some point, with November elections or impeachment, we should be able to have Government for the People and by the People. We have been drug down this road to what we have now, Socialism or worse in the making. That is only more slavery with a Big Government. We have been warned about this and finally waking up to what has happened since the Carter administraton. Saw it coming but never thought it could happen.

      • Bob Wire

        Sure ! of course we can! It’s recent memory! Back Door meetings and under the tables deals are down 35% and still falling!

        This is an attempt to address “influence peddling” pure and simple,
        and in no means is it perfect!

        I’d prefer to go much farther ~ with a few public hanging and penalties forfeiture of benifets for raw deals and inappropriate political misconduct with a strong focus of “conflict of interest clause” We can start with Rangel to get the ball rolling. We’ll prime the pump, lay down a marker for you.

        The GOP’s “stated objection” to this is only a ruse. ~ Are you buying it? Really?

        >”This bill is nothing more than incumbent protection in its worst and most cynical form”<

        You are buying that? If this was the case it would best serve the GOP to pass such legislation as they have enjoy dominion of the first chair position 22 of the last 30 years, not to consider their boosting claim of holding some kind of a "true majority" of the American people and best reflect the "will of the people" If that be the case they cold use this immunity ~ this, ~ this protection.

        So that leave one to question the GOP true intentions, and what are they really thinking today.

        They offer us many things that are not true, as they enjoy cheap non-voting labor while claiming to share some interest in immigration reform. I'm wondering what kind of excuse are they going to bring forward and derail reform while laying the blame at the DNC door? ~ I see it coming!

        Disingenuous in "word", disingenuous in "deed" best sums up today's GOP

        They like special interest money, they enjoy making deals on the back Nine Hole or in a Hotel room with 500 dollar hooker in disguised as a lobbyist and the "steering committee" vote just being a formality.

        They like a war chest full of cash and less babies and butts to kiss, less interfacing with Joe Q public.

        Today Micheal Steele is busier the a one legged man in a butt kicking contest ~ trying to hide the activities of rank and file GOP ~ As they have accepted a policy of "NO" work is good work! and just say "NO!" ~ They got so much time on their collective hands, they are getting into things, going places they should not go, being seen places they should not be, ~ not as agents of government and being servants of the people.

        Congressman John Boehner can be found with a scotch & water in hand by 6 pm on the dot and then on to the tanning salon. ~ The GOP is all but in a "Stand Down" ~ It's just say "no" ~ and come up with new ways to say it over cocktails and chit-chat.

        They are being disingenuous for a reason. To hide intent!

        Their supporters either equally disingenuous or very naive. I think both!

      Let me quote for you a part of the article,
      ““Citizens who are members of other grassroots groups will be muzzled by this legislation for no reason other than that they belong to a group without the financial and lobbying muscle to exempt itself from this bill,” said David Bossie, president of Citizens United, an organization dedicated to restoring the government to the control of Americans.”

      • eddie47d

        Citizens United org. is out for themselves and the Republican Party not transperancy.

      • Bob Wire

        >>”for no reason other than that they belong to a group without the financial and lobbying muscle to exempt itself from this bill,”<<

        They are being asked to put their name on it ! and that's muzzling?

        Hey! bring out the bedsheets with two eye holes cut out and cast your ballot! Dress up like Indians on the war path, feathers and paint and do you will?

        I find it odd, the people that would support SB1070 that requires people to carry proof of citizenship on their person at all times ~ would oppose a law that required people to place their name on instruments of political campaigning and stand accountable for who and what they support! ~ They must not be too proud of it. Or they just like doing what we do and hope no one will notice them. ~ Like a child sneaking cookies. The Ronnie Reagan defense!"Plausible deniable"~"I didn't Know!"

        Do you not see the conflict with the thought process, to embrace one and oppose the other? ~ it a self-serving means to "your" end and throwing any representation of fairness out the window.

        • Hubert

          The bulk of the Arizona law was patterned on FEDERAL law, and FEDERAL law already requires that all non-citizens legitimately here in the US carry on their person whatever documentation represents their lawful presence here. If you are a driver of any type of vehicle, most states require you to carry your driver’s license on your person while driving. Just try to get away with being stopped for a traffic violation and telling the officer that your drivers license, vehicle registration, and proof of insurance are at home.

        • JCfromDC

          BobWire — FEDERAL law (which SB1070 is a mere amendment) already requires non-citizens to carry proof of status and HAS for 40 years. The fact that it hasn’t been enforced since Lyndon Johnson’s day. Part of the reason for all this illegal alien mess. Notice I said “alien”. “Immigrant” implies legally emigrated and awaiting citizenship.

          Look at this from the LA Times, hardly a conservative rag:

          1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County (L. A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.
          2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
          3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
          4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
          5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.
          6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.
          7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
          8 Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegals (Taxpayer funded, my note).
          9 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.
          10. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.. (There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County.)

          (All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)

          Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States’ annual population growth(and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from immigration. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens .

    It’s like the wolf guarding the hen house. (democrats and republicans) The only thing I can think to do is burn the midnight oil reading about all candidates before voting. We have fatuous fatheads on both sides of the fence so vote accordingly. Never listen to a campaign speech or read the junk mail that comes in that says “This candidate will do this or that… Send your contribution…” That’s all hype. Look what we have with Obama! The only truthful thing the man said was “United States is the best country on earth and I’m going to make changes.” (something to that effect) I forgot-Obama also had big bucks to finish out his campaign where Fred and others with some common sense never had a fighting chance. Clintons will always have money. Giving their daughter a three million dollar wedding. Why aren’t they giving that money to the disadvantaged poor and illegals – they seem to think it is all right for them to spend but everyone else should conserve and give their dollars to the illegals and disadvantaged. What a bunch of Hogwash!

    Who is George Soros? If you read nothing else, read this

    ^ This explains how evil organizations, corporations, media and people grow wealthy with no visible means of earning as with politicians in high places.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Who Is George Soros?
    Obama’s largest sponsor and backer

    Here is what (CBS’) Mr. (Steve) Kroft’s research has turned up. Bit of a read, but it took 4 months to put it together.

    “The main obstacle to a stable and just world order is the United States .” George Soros

    “George Soros is an evil man. He’s anti-God, anti-family, anti-American, and anti-good.” He killed and robbed his own Jewish people.

    If George Soros isn’t the world’s preeminent “malignant messianic narcissist,” he’ll do until Hitler, Stalin, Mao, and Pol Pot are reincarnated.

    What we have in Soros, is a multi-billionaire atheist, with skewed moral values, and a sociopath’s lack of conscience. He considers himself to be an elitist world class philosopher, despises the American Way and just loves to do social engineering (change cultures).

    György Schwartz, better known to the world as George Soros, was born August 12, 1930 in Hungary Soros’ father, Tivadar, was a fervent practitioner of the Esperanto a language invented in 1887, and designed to be the first global language, free of any national identity.

    The Schwartz’s, who were non-practicing Jews, changed the family name to Soros, in order to facilitate assimilation into the gentile population, as the Nazis spread into Hungary during the 1930s.

    When Hitler’s henchman Adolf Eichmann arrived in Hungary , to oversee the murder of that country’s Jews, George Soros ended up with a man whose job was confiscating property from the Jewish population. Soros went with him on his rounds.

    Soros has repeatedly called 1944 “the best year of his life.”

    “70% of Mr. Soros’s fellow Jews in Hungary , nearly a half-million human beings, were annihilated in that year, yet he gives no sign that this put any damper on his elation, either at the time or indeed in retrospect.”

    During an interview with Sixty Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Soros was asked about his “best year”:

    KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

    SOROS: Yes. Yes.

    KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from your fellow Jews, friends and neighbors.

    SOROS: Yes. That’s right. Yes.

    KROFT: I mean, that sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?

    SOROS: Not, not at all. Not at all, I rather enjoyed it.

    KROFT: No feeling of guilt?

    SOROS: No, only feelings of absolute power.

    In his article, Muravchik describes how Soros has admitted to having “carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood, which I felt I had to control, otherwise they might get me in trouble.”

    Be that as it may. After WWII, Soros attended the London School of Economics, where he fell under the thrall of fellow atheist and Hungarian, Karl Popper, one of his professors. Popper was a mentor to Soros until Popper’s death in 1994. Two of Popper’s most influential teachings concerned “the open society,” and Fallibilism.

    Fallibilism is the philosophical doctrine that all claims of knowledge could, in principle, be mistaken. (Then again, I could be wrong about that.)

    The “open society” basically refers to a “test and evaluate” approach to social engineering. Regarding “open society” Roy Childs writes, “Since the Second World War, most of the Western democracies have followed Popper’s advice about piecemeal social engineering and democratic social reform, and it has gotten them into a grand mess.”

    In 1956 Soros moved to New York City , where he worked on Wall Street, and started amassing his fortune. He specialized in hedge funds and currency speculation.

    Soros is absolutely ruthless, amoral, and clever in his business dealings, and quickly made his fortune. By the 1980s he was well on his way to becoming the global powerhouse that he is today.

    In an article Kyle-Anne Shiver wrote for “The American Thinker” she says, “Soros made his first billion in 1992 by shorting the British pound with leveraged billions in financial bets, and became known as the man who broke the Bank of England . He broke it on the backs of hard-working British citizens who immediately saw their homes severely devalued and their life savings cut drastically, almost overnight.”

    In 1994 Soros crowed in “The New Republic ” that “the former Soviet Empire is now called the Soros Empire.” The Russia-gate scandal in 1999, which almost collapsed the Russian economy, was labeled by Rep. Jim Leach, then head of the House Banking Committee, to be “one of the greatest social robberies in human history.” The “Soros Empire” indeed.

    In 1997 Soros almost destroyed the economies of Thailand and Malaysia . At the time, Malaysia ‘s Prime Minister, Mahathir Mohamad, called Soros “a villain, and a moron.” Thai activist Weng Tojirakarn said, “We regard George Soros as a kind of Dracula. He sucks the blood from the people.”

    The website Greek National Pride reports, “[Soros] was part of the full court press that dismantled Yugoslavia and caused trouble in Georgia , Ukraine and Myanmar [ Burma ]. Calling himself a philanthropist, Soros’ role is to tighten the ideological stranglehold of globalization and the New World Order while promoting his own financial gain. He is without conscience; a capitalist who functions with absolute amorality.”

    France has upheld an earlier conviction against Soros, for felony insider trading. Soros was fined 29 million dollars.

    Recently, his native Hungary fined Soros 2.2 million dollars for “illegal market manipulation.” Elizabeth Crum writes that “The Hungarian economy has been in a state of transition as the country seeks to become more financially stable and westernized. [Soros] is deliberately driving down the share price of its largest bank put Hungary’s economy into a wicked tailspin, one from which it is still trying to recover.

    My point here is that Soros is a planetary parasite. His grasp, greed, and gluttony have a global reach.

    But what about America ? Soros told Australia ‘s national newspaper “The Australian” ” America , as the center of the globalized financial markets, was sucking up the savings of the world. This is now over. The game is out,” he said, adding that the time has come for “a very serious adjustment” in American’s consumption habits. He implied that he was the one with the power to bring this about.”

    Soros: “World financial crisis was “stimulating” and “in a way, the culmination of my life’s work.”

    Obama has recently promised 10 billion of our tax dollars to Brazil, in order to give them a leg-up in expanding their offshore oil fields. Obama’s largesse towards Brazil, came shortly after his political financial backer, George Soros, invested heavily in Brazilian oil (Petrobras).

    Tait Trussel writes, “The Petrobras loan may be a windfall for Soros and Brazil , but it is a bad deal for the U.S. The American Petroleum Institute estimates that oil exploration in the U.S. could create 160,000 new, well-paying jobs, as well as $1.7 trillion in revenues to federal, state, and local governments, all while fostering greater energy security and independance.”

    A blog you might want to keep an eye on is SorosWatch.com. Their mission: “This blog is dedicated to all who have suffered due to the ruthless financial pursuits of George Soros. Your stories are many and varied, but the theme is the same: the destructive power of greed without conscience. We pledge to tirelessly watch Soros wherever he goes and to print the truth in the hope that he will one day be made to stop preying upon the world’s poor, that justice will be served.”

    Back to America. Soros has been actively working to destroy America from the inside out for some years now. People have been warning us. Two years ago news sources reported that “Soros [is] an extremist who wants open borders, a one-world foreign policy, legalized drugs, euthanasia, and on and on. This is off-the-chart dangerous.”

    In 1997 Rachel Ehrenfeld wrote, “Soros uses his philanthropy to change or more accurately deconstruct the moral values and attitudes of the Western world, and particularly of the American people. His “open society” is not about freedom; it is about license. His vision rejects the notion of ordered liberty, in favor of a PROGRESSIVE ideology of rights and entitlements.”

    Perhaps the most important of these “whistle blowers” are David Horowitz and Richard Poe. Their book “The Shadow Party” outlines in detail how Soros hijacked the Democratic Party, and now owns it lock, stock, and barrel.

    Soros has been packing the Democratic Party with radicals, and ousting moderate Democrats for years.

    The Shadow Party became the Shadow Government, which became the Obama Administration.

    DiscoverTheNetworks.org (another good source) writes, “By his [Soros'] own admission, he helped engineer coups in Slovakia , Croatia , Georgia , and Yugoslavia . When Soros targets a country for “regime change,” he begins by creating a shadow government , a fully formed government-in-exile, ready to assume power when the opportunity arises. The Shadow Party he has built in America greatly resembles those he has created in other countries prior to instigating a coup.”

    November 2008 edition of the German magazine “Der Spiegel,” in which Soros gives his opinion on what the next POTUS (President of the U.S. ) should do after taking office “I think we need a large stimulus package.” Soros thought that around 600 billion would be about right.

    Soros also said that “I think Obama presents us a great opportunity to finally deal with global warming and energy dependence. The U.S. needs a cap and trade system with auctioning of licenses for emissions rights.”

    Although Soros doesn’t (yet) own the Republican Party, like he does the Democrats, make no mistake, his tentacles are spread throughout the Republican Party as well.

    Soros is a partner in the Carlyle Group where he has invested more than 100 million dollars. According to an article by The Baltimore Chronicle’s Alice Cherbonnier, the Carlye Group is run by “a veritable who’s-who of former Republican leaders,” from CIA man Frank Carlucci, to CIA head [and ex-President] George Bush, Sr.

    In late 2006, Soros bought about 2 million shares of Halliburton, Dick Cheney’s old stomping grounds.

    When the Democrats and Republicans held their conventions in 2000, Soros held Shadow Party conventions in the same cities, at the same time.
    In 2008, Soros donated $5 billion to the Democratic National
    Committee, DNC, to insure Obama’s win and wins for many other Alinsky trained Radical Rules Anti-American Socialist. George has been contributing a $ billion plus to the DNC since Clinton came on the scene.

    Soros has dirtied both sides of the aisle, trust me. And if that weren’t bad enough, he has long held connections with the CIA.

    And I mustn’t forget to mention Soros’ involvement with the MSM (Main Stream Media), the entertainment industry (e.g. he owns 2.6 million shares of Time Warner), and the various political advertising organizations he funnels millions to. In short, George Soros controls or influence most of the MSM. Little wonder they ignore the TEA PARTY, Soros’ NEMESIS.

    As Matthew Vadum writes, “The liberal billionaire-turned-philanthropist has been buying up media properties for years in order to drive home his message to the American public that they are too materialistic, too wasteful, too selfish, and too stupid to decide for themselves how to run their own lives.”

    Richard Poe writes, “Soros’ private philanthropy, totaling nearly $5 billion, continues undermining America ‘s traditional Western values. His giving has provided funding of abortion rights, atheism, drug legalization, sex education, euthanasia, feminism, gun control, globalization, mass immigration, gay marriage and other radical experiments in social engineering.”

    Some of the many NGOs (Non- Government Organizations) that Soros funds with his billions are: MoveOn.org, the Apollo Alliance , Media Matters for America , the Tides Foundation, the ACLU, ACORN, PDIA (Project on Death In America ), La Raza, and many more. For a more complete list, with brief descriptions of the NGOs, go to DiscoverTheNetworks.org.

    Poe continues, “Through his global web of Open Society Institutes and Open Society Foundations, Soros has spent 25 years recruiting, training, indoctrinating and installing a network of loyal operatives in 50 countries, placing them in positions of influence and power in media, government, finance and academia.”

    Without Soros’ money, would the Saul Alinsky’s Chicago machine still be rolling? Would SEIU, ACORN, and La Raza still be pursuing their nefarious activities? Would Big Money and lobbyists still be corrupting government? Would our college campuses still be retirement homes for 1960s radicals?

    America stands at the brink of an abyss, and that fact is directly attributable to Soros. Soros has vigorously, cleverly, and insidiously planned the ruination of America and his puppet, Barak Obama is leading the way.

    The words of Patrick Henry are apropos: “Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!”

    These days, Patrick Henry’s sentiment is more than just some quaint hyperbole from long ago. It’s a slow burning, but intense, glow that fires our courage and heart.

    Doesn’t anybody here know how this country is run, or how legislation is passed? Oh, duh? The dem-craps have total control of both sides of the HOR. THEY DO NOT NEED ANY REPUBLICAN VOTE TO PASS ANY LEGISLATION! They have the votes to do so, all by themselves. They are the majority! The Republicans can’t do a thing about it! Actually, the dem-craps have one extra vote that apparently nobody else knows about. It is the VEEP, who is the President of the Senate. So, when you see on TV harry talking to the president, he isn’t talking to oblama, he’s talking to joe, the one extra vote! Duh? The reason why this legislation did not pass, is because harry could not find a majority of his own buddies to approve it. So, when you can’t depend on your friends to help you, who do you blame? Your enemies, of course. Wake up, people. The Republicans are irrelevent. They have no say in the HOR for anything! This accusation that the Republicans stopped this legislation from passing, is nothing more than another big giant lie that the ignorant population takes as being the word of God because barry says so. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU! And, you vote these clowns into office? It is the public who are the clowns, because the clowns in DC are the people’s representatives, the clown’s on main street who voted them there. DON’T BELIEVE ME? LOOK IT UP! READ THE CONSTITUTUTION! EDUCATE YOURSELVES! STOP RELYING ON SOME IDIOT TO EDUCATE YOU WHO WAS ELECTED BY A BUNCH OF GIRLS DANCING AROUND IN SHORT-SHORTS! (THE OBLAMA GIRLS). Gee, it sure doesn’t take us Americans long to forget the facts of life! Are you folks all on drugs, or something? Oh, duh?

  • OneDamnAngryAmerican

    Oh, I left something out. Only harry reid can bring a bill to vote in the Senate. Nobody else can, no matter what it is. Nancy has the same power on her side. See how the deception and lies are being used for the personal gain of barry and his buddies. slick willie was correct when he said, the average American is an “idiot.” How true that statement was. Anybody remember Ron Howard, the black commerce department secretary under clinton? He died in an Air Force plane crash while on official business. The Army doctor who did the autopsy said that both brown and the pilot died of a single gunshot wound to the back of their heads. (This Army doctor has since disappeared off the face of the earth, really!) At Brown’s funeral, slick willie was seen walking away laughing his a$$ off while doing so. Then, somebody touched his shoulder and pointed at a TV camera. Slick willie started crying and wiping his eyes. Of course nothing was done about this stuff. WE ARE ALL IDIOTS!

  • CJM

    IF the bill was on the up-and-up, the GOP would have supported it. Unfortunately, the Dems built in ready made loopholes for their supporters to crawl into. A better reform bill would have put a cap on the amount of money that can be used in order to be elected into office; it is obscene to give the open position to one who simply acquired more cash. At least that way, the cap would force the candidates to focus on the issues of public concern rather than their personal agendas.IMPEACH OBAMA and toss his czars out of Washington.

      • Claire

        chuckb–You are correct. I am sick of these so-called “honest” politicians that do not pay their taxes when the average American sure as heck has to pay theirs!! I don’t think they even deserve a trial. It is a waste of the taxpayers money. Throw them in jail and get it over with. They should be thrown OUT of office the very minute they get caught! They should lose their so-called position immediately. It is time these politicians be held accountable. No more “breaks”— the law is the law. It should apply to them just as it would apply to us. Talk about a double standard. Geez, they have no honor. I would be ashamed if I pulled some of the stunts they have pulled. How can they act like they didn’t do anything wrong? Don’t they have any scruples?
        Same with our sheriff here in town–got drunk, hit a telephone pole, came out smelling like a rose, no ticket for DUI, nothing! And he was re-elected. What is wrong with this picture??!!

    Not paying your taxes is defrauding the governemnt and its citizens. Whixh is a felony, which by federal congressional standrads would make all pensions and benafits void and null. Check how many marxist dems in the last few years who have been caught not paying their taxes, pay what they owe, and continue collecting pensions and benafits. Daschle, Kerry, Geithner, Rangel, and others. Averrage Joe or Susy Citizen would be jailed, fined heavily, and ruined. But we forget these are eleitist socialist democrats! The idea of campaigns only having so much money, it would be just another rule to be by passed. Soros would just creat more phony groups and more “private” advertisemnet sites. The problem is the USA has such abunch of simple minded morons who don’t read, comprhend anything but TV promotions and media backed canidates. The eleit muslim numnut getting elected is a prime example. Socialist marxists know how to control the idoit masses and the mush brained spoiled brats of this country and the welfare rat parents.

    you blew the debt by a long shot nothing you have done has helped anything the republicans see this and fight like they are supposed to they are for the public like it is supposed to be.the public voices their openion and you do what you want its not right.if the public don’t want higher taxes they don’t want higher taxes there is no secret message that needs to be decaded like ralphie in the christmas story.ever ralphie had a breaking point.we are tired of being told this is how it is and we want the right for our country.not these rich and powerful people.they want their pockets filled.we just want to have what we work for and pay taxes for and all.if you can’t understand this then maybe you need to go back and learn what is is.there should be a limit on how much any one company can donate and it should be public who pays you money.

    i41; Not only the Democrats and Republicans not paying taxes the biggest loss to America are the tax havens offshore to the big corporations.America should refrain from doing business with our tax dollars with corporations that do’nt have an American tax address.A mailing address on a Carribean island is all thats needed to scam America out of trillions of tax dollars.

    jopa, who sits on these corpation boards, usually retread congress staffers, like Hillary Clinton did on Wal-Warts board, and after Whorehound Clinton got out of office, his appointed department heads move in to place at Wal-Mart. Especially the one that couldn’t remember, or find the 300 million that disappear with no records and has never been found. Or Daschle’s 2nd wife, when she was the head of the FAA, and questionable deals with Boeing were going on and the Daschles built a million dollar shack on government salary.. The more regulations and programs coming out of Washington, the more corruption and scamming the system goes on. Omoron and his crusty thugs from Chitcago need a little more dirt work on their pasts. Blago might have been a squirrel, but somebody has him squeazed to stay shut up, the more sleazy and corrupt the high a thug marxist democrat climbs in party rank and the more corporation board they will sit on and collect big money and goodies.

    Hmmm I was wondering where walmart got these nice people welcoming me when I shop there.They are from the Clinton administretion.Who would have thunk?

      Yeah, they’re probably the ones that passed the restrictive rules that Wal-mart have about CCW in the store!!!

  • jopa

    OOps administration, I stand corrected.

  • http://gmail i41

    jopa, I worked for Wal Mart for 4 years, when Hillary was there. Also when the Whorehound Clinton appointed jerks left their posts, they were getting appointed on to the board of directors of Wal Mart. The workers kept losing bonuses and ability to run their departments. Just like Washington, they kept over paying dung heads board members and head managers, that only work in government postitions and kept cutting back on help to pay the boards more. When Sam Walton was the head man, college degrees didn’t mean squat, and his stores were growing. The more socialist democrat bastards on the board, the worse that sales were and the more crappier the managers got. The mega store I was in had 18 greeters in 2003, now has only 7, cashiers of 52, now 17. Damn good centerlized management. These college degreed brats in “management” don’t have a clue on what goes on in the real world. They use cameras for security, but only after a greeter or workers catches someone stealing, and management will not prosecute people under 18 or over 65. Talk about a dumb assed idea, blacks, indians (native and from India) or any minority get let go with a NON NO. Only 18-65 year old whites get an arrest. So jopa your socialist marxist bastards in the democrat party are the damn racists. A 70 old rancher who was hired because he moved to town and wanted a job and I blocked 4 indian females with over $10,000 dollars of stolen electronic goods, videos, cds, and other goods, trying to run out the open doors, and the management let them go, even as former law officer, was telling the to call the dispatch office to send officers. The tapes when veiwed had it down when I and Slim were getting them penned, but the 26 year old graduate couldn’t make up her mind what to do, because it wasn’t in a book. Wal Mart will cave and fail, just like the USA is doing with centerlized power and overeducated dumb pinheads at the wheel, educated idoits supervising and training more college trained idoits it just never works as finacial gurus in businesses have informed Wal Mart since 2005.

    Listen to what they do not what they say.

He is too quick for creating a executive orders, to do what he wants, and with the courts giving the unelected agencies wonks, the power to make rules and set standrads with out any citizen’s recourse, or the power to over ride them. Our Congress has no powers or backbones to stop this bull, and the social dems in control, nothing will change only for the worse like it has happened in 20 months.

    • meteorlady

      Review everything single candidate – look at their backgrounds, their contributors and most of all how their community feels about them. If they have voting records, study them. DO NOT EVER take what they say during a campaign as the truth. Get in their face at “meet and greets” and ask the hard questions. Take the time to elect a good representative instead of staying home, watching the news and media advertising.

And to him it’s all about his ideology, it doen’t matter that it won’t financially work, as long as his ideology is being followed.

  • meteorlady

    If Obama was so concerned with transparency and disclosure he would have disclosed who paid for his education, who paid for him to be a community organizer, why he doesn’t have a law license, who paid for him to run for senate and who financed his bid for the Presidency.

    This is just another bait and switch tactic. It’s like the Banking bill, there is nothing in that bill that will stop what just happened from happening again.

    The hypnotists pendulum continues to swing from left to right and right to left with increasing intensify. The masses are fixated on the game of politics which has been manipulated to keep us distracted. Meanwhile, our economy is being destroyed, or freedoms stolen and our wealth is being pillaged by the master hypnotists. Welfare state, warfare state, it doesn’t matter to them. They get what THEY want either way… and we all end up living in a dystopian corporatocracy.
    If only people could break their fixation on the swinging pendulum and look up and see who the real enemy of personal liberty actually is.
