Romney To Obama: Many Happy Returns, But Not To The White House

Romney To Obama: Many Happy Returns, But Not To The White House

President Barack Obama turned 50 on Thursday, having celebrated with donors in Chicago on Wednesday night. Also on Wednesday, former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney’s Presidential campaign released a video criticizing the former Senator from Chicago, saying Obama’s policies have not helped the city at all.

“Titled ‘Obama isn’t Working,’ the video focuses on the economy of Chicago, asserting that the city’s unemployment rate is up 48 percent and home prices are down,” read a blog for The New York Times. “The 50-second video shows bleak-looking pictures of empty storefronts in the city and ends — like many of Mr. Romney’s ads — with Mr. Obama saying, ‘If I don’t have this done in three years, then this is going to be a one-term proposition.’”

The video can be viewed below.

“With the debt ceiling debate now behind him, President Obama is turning his 50th birthday into a massive, nation-wide campaign event and fundraiser, complete with a lavish bash in Chicago tonight and related fundraisers around the country,” read a blog for White House Dossier, which discussed Wednesday’s early events as laying the groundwork for a “national celebration.”

“Then the real fun begins at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, where guests will pay from $50 to the maximum donation limit of $35,800 to attend an initial party and fundraiser featuring about 1,000 guests. Performers will include Jennifer Hudson, Herbie Hancock, and the band OK Go,” the blog read.

“A separate party in the Rose Garden Thursday, the day of his actual birthday, cannot by law be money-related — at least not directly.”

    To All concerned:
    I hate to say this but Obama is going to crush Mitt Romney in the general elections. I don’t believe the accuracy of polls; however, if polls are indicitave of whats going on then Romney is doomed against Obama. Even as bad as it seems for Obama, Obama is still leading Romney close to comfortably in polls. Just look at real clear politics
    , this will show you all. The best candidate, as i stated before, is Ron Paul. Yet, he’ll never be given a chance. Thanks!! Tony

    • annie

      Yeh sure Tony, now tell us another fictional fairy tale.

      • http://Personalliberty Tony

        To Annie:
        We have to face the facts. Romney is an elitists, who’s not in touch with reality. However, you can vote for him if you want. Thanks Again!!

        • Bruce D.

          What polls are you looking at? Obama is not likely to beat Romney as you say but that will be decided in the voting booth. Romney is not the perfect candidate by any means but he has business sense and has an excellent chance to beat Obama. Independents will vote for him and the polls are showing that.

          • eddie47d

            I believe Tony is right.Not because Obama is doing a marvelous job but because the opposition is coming from too many fronts and can’t get their act together. They still dig up the birther argument like it is manna from heaven.They still call Obama a Muslim and that is nothing more than fear and loathing. The opposition also brags about Capitalism and how wonderful all those Capitalists are. They may provide jobs on occasion but the stagnant unemployment rate says differently. The American people will not buy that line from the right that lower taxes will produce more jobs because that is the new fairy tale. Obama has more than alot of work to accomplish yet the Romney’s out there are all talk and no show. Since Marcy want to bring up donations: how about that 1 million that Romney just received from an unknown donor. He will not kiss and tell so transparency has gone out the window with him also and voters don’t like that.

          • Bruce D.

            Sorry Eddie, America is rejecting your Marxists ideas along with Obama’s. It is an argument you will not win in 2012. I think if you can get illegals on the dole and make them citizens who vote you will eventually achieve your Marxists goals.

          • eddie47d

            Not much transparency with Bruce either. Play the Marxist card in all his comments and then life will be good. More duck and cover from the right?

          • Bruce D.

            Stop being such a hypocrite Eddie. You play the capitalist card all the time. Your biggest problem Eddie is that you portray yourself as a Marxists like most progressives but are offended when people call you out on it. If you do not want to be called a Marxist stop posting like one.

          • eddie47d

            Okay brilliant one; errr Bruce,then stop acting like a jerk and I won’t call you one. DEAL!

          • Bruce D.

            Call it as you see it Eddie. That will not stop me from exposing you and your Marxist friends. You are hiding behind a very thin facade.

          • Jay

            Well said Bruce, unfortunately your dealing with an indoctrinated shill who thinks he’s more clever then the rest of humanity. This off course is eddies achilles heel, unfortunately, eddie views this stumbling block , his over-bloated ego, as something to be celebrated!

        • Bert Cundle

          What do you think the cryteria, is for presidency? Sure NOT Wisdom…

    • Ray

      I agree Tony, Ron Paul is the best candidate, Romney will do nothing.
      Don’t pay attention to the liberal a-holes, they know nothing but critism for everything but liberals. They talk a lot, but say nothing.

    • Vic

      Romney is not good for anything. Romney is Obama incarnate in republican clothes. Romneycare is enough of evidence. His business experience will let him be more efficient while destroying this country and turning it into communist slave labor camp. Is that what we really want or need?

      I donated $50 to Ron Paul campaign and $75 to Michele Bachmann today to mark US credit rating downgrade. There’s got to be another 30 million people like me in the US of A for us to have any hope of revival. Is that such an impossible dream?

    • Bob Henderson

      What I think is something that may surprise you, I believe that when all is said and done this time around, Ron Paul will be pressing pretty hard on this election, and don’t be surprised at all that he wins it..Read your Constitution, You’ll see why.

  • Bob

    Romney is good for business which is good for America. Obama is clueless and apparently couldn’t care less about where the money (for his pet projects like health care) comes from. He thinks we can just keep printing it and handing it to people who squander it.

  • http://BobLivingston Ms Nike Newton

    Well, I want to send my belated birthday greetings to President Barak Obama. My gift to him is that his grandson would one day be President of America in his stead. Amen.Through the blood of the Holy Spirit. However I feel that from now on till the next election, he should endeavour to visit all states in America and collect the needs and aspirations of local people. He also needs to visit Alaska, American Islands and some states in South /Central America. Jobs need to be created and there should be welfare reforms. Happy Birthday Big Boy. May you live to see your grandson take office in the White House . Amen. Ms Nike Newton

    • 12AngryMen

      The Holy Spirit has blood?

    • s c

      Wow. I will waste no time wondering how any adult can get so ‘far out.’ If the O ever has a grandson, may he be so conservative that he makes me look like a raving Marxist.
      God’s Will be done. May people wake up and realize that God has no use for earthly politics or our double-minded games that some want to think are ‘elite’ or somehow have His blessing.

  • PeachDog

    The left is once again trying to choose our candidate for us. Remember the disaster that was John McCain? I agree with Ray & Tony… Ron Paul is the BEST candidate.

    The simple truth is that Ron Paul puts principle above politics. The GOP will not choose him, so it’s up to us. I urge everybody to research what this man has been doing over the years. Outside the media spotlight, he has been fighting with uncompromising integrity for our Constitution, liberty, and national sovereignty. He is not Pepsico pretty or popular with the media, democrats, or GOP
    – but he can win with our help. Believe in better… let’s get to work!

    • 12AngryMen

      Ron Paul is NOT the best candidate.

      Ron Paul has the best ideas, ideals, experience, and principles. He has the firmest grasp on the entire situation from an economic and liberties standpoint.

      But this is what is really telling about the state of our union: Even if he took the Oval Office, he is too revolutionary (as in American Revolution- Founding Father style) for people in Congress to work with. He has been like a stationary object in his role in the House, refusing to vote for anything less than ideal bills, even if they move closer to the goal.

      Because he will not compromise even a little, he faces enormous opposition, even from would-be allies.

      A Ron Paul Presidency would only work if we the people also demanded senators and representatives of the same caliber and mindset. There are not enough seats up for vote this election to replace enough of the losers.

      As much as I would love the re-love-ution right now, it would only encourage the opposition on both sides to dig in their heels.

      Whomever we elect as president this term will need to someone who can INCREMENTALLY move us in the right direction with some finesse. Then they will prep the scene for a Ron Paul presidency.

    • Bob Henderson

      I’m doing what I can for Mr. Paul. The reason I am doing it is simple. I will tell the truth as he is doing. I finally, from beginning to end read the Entire Constitution, and it is clear to me, That if you read it slowly, take in all it says, You will see that the man, Ron Paul is the right man for Office of the President. I call him the Pending 2nd Father of our Country. The man is right. How can we possibly ignore this dedicated man of Faith. He wants to help us, and I think we should give him a chance…!

  • http://www.easyinvest.co.za peter

    Pipe dreams are evident again in many of these posts. Let us face reality folks. As poor as he is, Obama has no competition and will cake walk the elections. That is sad but unavoidable so we need to just bite the bullet and put up with him for 5 more years – oh cripes!

    • Bruce D.

      You and Tony must watch a lot of mainstream TV.
      This is in Vision to America: “Voters in the developed world are turning away from Democrats, Socialists, liberals and progressives.”

      “Voters feel ever more estranged from government—and they associate Democrats with government.”

      “If they are to win trust, and votes, Democrats must show they are as determined as the Tea Party movement to change the rules of the game.”

      “This distrust of government and politicians is unfolding as a full-blown crisis of legitimacy [and] sidelines Democrats and liberalism.”

      Greenberg says that his public opinion research now reveals that voters believe, “Government rushes to help the irresponsible and does little for the responsible.”

      To win, Democrats must “advocate policies that would control the borders and address problems of undocumented workers,” and voters want to “see strong enforcement at the border and in the workplace, and the expulsion of troublesome undocumented immigrants.”

      “Finally, progressives have to be serious about reducing the country’s long-term deficits” because “the deficit matters to people and has real meaning and consequences.”

      • http://Personalliberty Tony

        To Bruce D:
        Romney won’t stand a chance against Obama. As i mentioned in my previous posts on this subject google real clear politics and it will
        show you this. Again, polls are just fads and feelings of the moment;
        nevertheless, if there is any accuracy in them, then Obama will crest to re-election quite comfortably. Romney , in general, is the Repub.
        version of Mondale, Dukakis, with Kerry all roled into one. We all know what happened to those candidates. Furthermore, you analyze Mitt Romney’s record, it’s not that good. First of all, before he was gov. of Mass. he was an assistant ceo of The Bain Corp. In that position, Romney was responsible for laying off 3,000-5,000 workers. In addition, he had wages lowered by 5% and benefits by 10%. Afterwards,
        when he was the Gov. of Mass. from 1998-2006, that state was in the bottom five for job creation. Finally, the healthcare law, our nation
        has, was based on Mitt Romney’s policy in Mass. In his book in 2007,
        after his last term as Gov., he stated he wanted his plan to be the
        “blue print” for a national based one. Thus, he tries to debate that
        with Obama, what will he say? Will he be like his late father, George,
        and say he was “brain washed” by passing Healthcare!?! Think about the debacle that will occur as a result of this. The best candidate, i re-emphasize, is Ron Paul. If Ron Paul could take J.C.Watts as his running mate, that would be a jaggernaut to victory. Yet, that’s not going to take place, the GOP will stay with this dud Romney and get destroyed in 2012. Sorry for the pessimism but you got to call it the
        way you see it. Thanks as always, Tony!!

        • Bruce D.

          Romney is not the perfect candidate but certainly can beat Obama. Ron Paul has no chance of beating Obama. He won’t pull in more than 10% of the primary vote, if that. You know that as well as I do. I understand your passion for Ron Paul and I am happy he is helping to shape the debate but he does not resonate with 90% of the voting public.

          • http://Personalliberty Tony

            To Bruce:
            I hate to be argumentative with you but it seems you don’t want to face the facts. Mitt Romney is going to fall flat on his face. Look
            , given the current sit. Romney should be far ahead in the polls, yet,
            he’s losing. In some cases, he’s hardly competition for Obama. Also,
            people haven’t had a chance to fully examine Romney. Once they do, may God have mercy On Mitt. It’s going to be a tough battle. Now, to the subject of Ron Paul, the reason he won’t win the nomination is because the Repub. establishment will do all they can to prevent him to win. This is what happened in 2008. If Paul would of had a chance, he would be in the White house right now. To put it bluntly, Romney is
            going to get squashed by Obama. Also, Romney will, probably, take a hick such as Rick Perry for V.P. This man believes in secession,(LOL),
            and was the former chairman for Democratic candidate Al Gore in 1988.
            Thus, this ticket will be the equivalence of a bad Saturday night live
            skit. The GOP is going to have to come up with something better or
            just hold out to 2016. Thanks as usual!! Tony

          • Bruce D.

            Hi Tony, Romney has been well vetted in the last election. People know his good points and bad points already. I have no interest in defending him as I am farther right than he is. I am reasonably sure he will beat Obama if he wins the Republican nomination. Texas has plenty of reasons to succeed from the Union as well as many other red states. Rich Perry will make a fine Vice President. I would favor Michele Bachmann even more.

  • http://yahoo Ruth

    Obama has destroyed our country in the past 3 years. Look where we are today compared to when Bush was President.At least we had jobs under Bush. The Democratic Party of today is not the same one of 40 years ago – it has been hijacked by marxists, communists, radicals, progressives and the Republican Party has been hijacked by Rino’s – republicans in name only.
    So if you want to change America folks, vote for ALL Tea Party candidates.Why do you think the LEFT continually degrades the Tea Party – we are tired of being Taxed Enough Already!
    Vote all these dirtbags out and that includes the marxist’s in the White House.
    Obama can spend all the money he wants – he won’t be reelected!

    • eddie47d

      The Tea Party was an excellent grass roots movement 3 years ago and claimed they represented all walks of life and all Parties. Hooray for them and what they stood for. Sadly they were soon hijacked by Corporatist and the far right talking heads within the broadcast community. Their message was now being directed by those with a personal agenda and not for the good of the country. I would be happy to be proven wrong and maybe the individual members can turn it back around.I don’t see that with Ruth’s diatribe.

      • Jay

        Why Obama won’t be re-elected.

        President Barack Obama’s new budget, to be released Monday, forecasts two consecutive years of near $160 billion in war funding, far more than he hoped when elected and only modestly less than the last years of the Bush Administration.

        In 2011 alone, the revised numbers are triple what the president included in his spending plan a year ago. And the strain shows itself in new deficit projections, already hobbled by lagging revenues due to the weak economy.

        The administration appears to be projecting a deficit of near $1.6 trillion for the current year and $1.3 trillion in 2011. That is even more pessimistic than Congressional Budget Office estimates last week, and it’s only in 2012 that the projections drop to the range of $800 billion to $700 billion.

        By the end of the decade, the gap again widens, and as a percentage of GDP, the average appears above the 3% target viewed as sustainable.

        Obama has responded with a three-year domestic spending freeze impacting about $447 billion in annual appropriations. This leaves him less money to sustain the very rapid growth seen last year in clean water programs or the Great Lakes restoration initiative. The Environmental Protection Agency budget would be cut modestly, and to stretch his dollars, Obama wants to dramatically ramp up the Energy Department’s credit budget, a low-cost way to extend tens of billions in loan guarantees to the nuclear power industry.

        But on balance, the president’s plan seems less restrictive in many areas than lawmakers had anticipated. With the Senate having just passed a $1.9 trillion debt ceiling increase last week, fiscal moderates in his own party may insist on even tighter limits.

        Obama’s 2010 starting point for the freeze has a built-in cushion since billions in Census spending won’t have to be repeated in 2011. He appears to count expanded Pell Grant funding for low-income college students as a mandatory cost outside the Education Department’s discretionary budget. And both Veterans Affairs and Homeland Security, two of the fastest areas of recent spending, are exempted from the freeze.

        The VA is slated to get significant new money to speed the processing of claims, and billions more will be requested this year to resolve old disputes related to soldiers and airmen exposed to Agent Orange in the Vietnam War.

        In the case of education, a top priority for the president, the department’s appropriations would grow by about $3.5 billion to $49.7 billion, a 7.5% increase. But when Pell Grants are counted, the total increase is closer to $11.4 billion or 16% above current spending.

    If the patriots of this country would join up and enact the second amendment; we the people, who out number the irresponsible president and congress by the millions, could remove the tyranny from Washington and replace them with people with common sense, honor, and integrity who want to serve. Talking about it won’t get the job done; only effective, legal, constitutional action! That my friends is how to get their attention. All else has failed miserably! I’m ready! Are you?

      There is only one Man who will lead this country responsibly. Jesus Christ! No more sunshine patriots. We all need to work hard to make Jesus Christ President. :)

      (Note: I’m really tired of what we’ve sown in 1913. This socialist, communist agenda was sown in 1913. Now it’s bearing fruit. How many of you like our Politicians and the job they are doing? We have so many Big Government politicians back there its insane.)

      • Erik

        That would never fly as Jesus spent too much time associating with drunkards and whores. Also, he was a little too “buddy, buddy” with 12 disciples. Those 13 men sure spent a lot of time together, behind closed doors…..not that I’m implying anything…..

        • http://ahalbert@smart-technology.net Allan

          Classy comments there, Eric.

  • Sandra

    What we need is a middle of the road president, one that is middle enough for independents, and democrats that are sorry they voted for obama. The Tea Party needs to elect individuals to both houses and then the electable president can sign bills that are submitted to him/her by the Tea Party. Most folks will pay attention to the Presidential elections, few pay attention to who is running for congress or the senate and even fewer pay attention to local elections.

    • Dreamtime

      Sandra, I’m afraid middle of the road is what got us into this mess. We need someone with backbone that stands on principles that our Founding Father’s laid out in the Constitution. Enough compromise. This county is in a state of emergency and no watered down republican like Romney is going to get the job done.

      • Bob Henderson

        Ron Paul has got to get in, or we’re finished. We have one more chance.

    • EltonJ

      Jesus Christ for President! (Why vote for a comfortable evil, when you can vote for a offensive good?)

    Romney is liberal dressed in republican clothes. If you really liberty vote for Ron Paul. He’s the only one running that works for the American people without ties to big corps and Wall Street.

  • Winnie

    Happy birthday to the President of the United States of America!!!! As for Romney, who cares. A pretty face among pretty faces.

  • just little ole me

    I hope we are smarter than putting Obama back in. I have a sneaky suspicion we better watch the voting booths very closely this election. We think voting fraud may have been introduced this last time. They are already trying to get rid of the fact we need to show identification for voting in many states, scary. This would make it so you wouldn’t even have to prove you are a US citizen. Where is the logic in that one? Democrats have always tried to bully people throughout history to get votes. Check out the real history between democrats and the KKK by typing in, your search engine of choice, democrats and the Ku Klux Klan. Oops did I let the cat out of the bag. This group started out as a way of getting votes away from the republicans, especially if you were a black republican trying to get into office, but yes if you were a white republican too you better watch out. It wasn’t just blacks they killed as history would like you to believe. Many times whites and blacks were hung together especially if you were republican. Republican is still being taught as a dirty word among many although many republicans have helped that situation. Both groups are corrupt now which is very sad.

    How about we go back to what the founding fathers did? Senators were not voted on in the states by the people, they were put in by the people already in state legislatures. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seventeenth_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution
    This would stop the Senators from spending so much money on elections and it would stop them from pandering to the people who want goodies in the bills and are willing to give them so much money. Just maybe then they would really do what is right and not have to answer to the panders in their states and would be freer to just do what is best for the state. Perhaps then the President of the United States wouldn’t have so much power because the state representatives wouldn’t be pandering to him either they would be helping their states. Let us also get them out of Washington DC. The founding fathers didn’t spend so much time in Washington DC they would meet fewer times and representatives spent much of the time in their states so people and state legislature could keep a tight lid on them. We do have great technology like the web cam and so forth that they could meet as well. Get our congress and senators out of Washington DC for a while and have to answer to the people which put them in because there are many of us who want to do right for the country. They could also see what their policies are doing to the states by actually being there and seeing it with their own eyes.

        Corruption in voting was introduced not last voting year, but by your infamous repub trio, cheney, rumsvelt, and what’s his name, the chucky guy.

        • http://ahalbert@smart-technology.net Allan

          You apparently don’t know about the voter fraud in Texas and Illinois during the 1960 presidential election. You know, the one where Richard Daley, LBJ, and Sam Giancana gave JFK the extra votes he needed. Acorn, of course, is just as creative when it comes to dead voter registration.

  • s c

    I’ll say happy birthday to my dog and anyone else’s dog. When it comes to The Anointed One, no way. As for Romney, he’s the guy who came up with the prototype of Obummer’s healthcare scam.
    So HOW can anyone think Romney is presidential material?
    Last but not least, I can think of MANY ways to waste $38,500. Spending it on someone like the Bummer will NEVER get on my list. I’d burn all of it before he got close to it. Wasting as much as $1 on that Haavid joke is inexcusable.

  • Bob from Calif.

    Happy birthday Barrack,
    You had your fun, now get the the hell out. You shouldn’t even try to campaign for the next election, you don’t stand a chance of winning. If you do win this next round, we will all know that the game is rigged and the fix is in.

  • Stan Smith

    The Repubics Will shoot themselves in the foot again! They still have no solid candidate and they better get their ducks in the row, Obummer will win 2nd term Due to Libtards no news media will spin as usual making people stupid since they are Democrap cheerleaders! I noticed there is lot of Ron Paul Supporters out there, Forget it he can’t win just like the last election, Jerry Doyle is correct about FOX, FOX did snubbed Ron Paul during Repubes presidential candidates, FOX is getting silly like Libtard no news media! FOX is a cheerleader for Repubes establishment elites, The press should not host and mediate presidential debate The media gives their side a pass, Just only have presidential at a local town hall let a local person unbiased (not a plant) mediate presidential debate and ask the REAL questions (which the useless media refuse to do)!Also let us common people ask the questions, and all the media can do is film it! and make sure us common people bring camcorders and film the debates to counter the media since they take things out of context! and make transcripts available to the public!

  • http://liberty Tony

    To Stan Smith:
    Right on with your analysis. For Fax and Fiends will do all they can
    to destroy Ron Paul or any other credible candidate for these fools
    they have running right now. Unfortunately, the GOP primary has become
    the equivalence of royal secession. That’s the next in line for the throne. This why Romney will get the nomination but will get creamed
    in the 2012 election. Someone said the fix is on for Obama to win, well if Romney gets the nod that point will be proven. Thanks
    so very much and have a good weekend. Tony!!

  • http://ahalbert@smart-technology.net Allan

    I am suspicious of Romney’s intentions due to so many position changes and the fact that he isn’t very specific in what he’d do differently. However, I’ll certainly vote for him if he’s the last opponent for Obama.

    The key to our future is whether conservatives take the Senate, which would facilitate the best conservative efforts of the non-Obama President.

    Any conservative elected with a Senate majority will be in an “historic” position to help stop the march toward socialism, unshackle our economy, repeal obamacare, gain energy independence, give some usurped power back to the states, and frankly, exemplify love of country! And once these efforts are begun, the world will find its grudging respect in time to ask for more favors.

    • just little ole me

      So let us fall slowly instead of fast like we are now by voting in someone who just lies on a few issues and lets just a few things slide by and may be republican. I no longer vote for a party I will vote for someone who is honest and stands up for what is right and not what is necessary politically right. Been there done that, not anymore. This just puts things off and makes things worse. Are we going to settle for anything less than honesty? This is what has gotten us into this problem in the first place. This is one quality I admire about Herman Cane thus far but still want to know more. I am still reserving judgement. Michelle Bachmann is someone I am looking into too. I just know when Cane didn’t know something he admitted it and then tried to learn about what he didn’t know. But still researching all the candidates. I haven’t made up my mind. I am going to say this we need a wise and honest person. I do not think Mitt Romney is this person. He has lied to get into office before. How can we know what is coming out of his mouth is really what he thinks? I am Mormon as Romney is but our church has asked us to separate politics from religion. I do not think he would be a great president. He lied about his stance on abortion and switched his views to please those who were voting for him so we really don’t know how he stands on the issue. In my church you are suppose to stand on your morals and Romney does not. He also created Romney care and never admitted to its problems only stating that if he was still governor in Massachusetts that Romney care would still be working. Who does he think he is, God? How big of him. We have enough people in government who seem to believe that. No thank you. That is not for me.

      Excellent post, Allan! Very well stated!!! I agree with EVERYTHING you said! After the primaries, the ONLY goal for ALL conservatives should be get Obummer out of office, and to get a majority of conservatives in the Senate. If this is not done, ObummerCare will be with us FOREVER, because it will NEVER be repealed after it becomes a full-blown entitlement in 2014.

      We ALL (conservatives) must unite, regardless of who wins in the Primary, to get Obummer out of office in 2012! Obummer supporters will no doubt be relying on conservatives, who don’t like either candidate, to NOT vote, or to vote for a third party candidate, because it will definitely help Obummer in his effort to get re-elected. This will definitely be part of his divide-and-conquer strategy. We must NOT let this happen.

      I know I’ve said all this before, but I will keep on repeating it like a mantra in these forums until the 2012 elections are over.

    Reading comments, I didn’t know Jesus Christ was running. We the people have to do this. Those of you fighting about Ron Paul and Romney—– Forget about it!!!! Whoever is the Repubulican or American Patriot (teaparty) candidate, get out and vote. Don’t fight amongst ourselves. The lefties and Obama and his robots he hired are trying to get us to fight. Don’t play their game. They are the scum, rotten, liars,abusive, name calling, deceptive, weak fools. Hi Obuts…James Johnson and turds! Obama’s army on the net. You would think they had better things to do. Dems are so boring.

    The Democrats and the Republicans have been sharing the leadership of our country for years. When Abraham Loncoln ran for the presidency of the greatest country on the face of the earth, he was a 3rd party candidate. HE WON!! If we want real change, we must consider a 3rd Party once again.
    The old saying goes that: If you keep on doing what you have been doing, you will keep on getting what you have been getting. Or to paraphrase this saying, If you keep on electing democrats and republicans, you will keep on getting the same leadership. Why not try something really different? Vote for a third party. Not just any third party, but one that really standsa for something.

    What party might that be? THE CONSTITUTION PARTY! What is the stance of the Constitution Party? Just this:
    Limited Government
    @nd amendment strength and the right to bear arms
    No amnesty for Illegal Aliens
    Right to Life

    If you need more to consider this, I suggest you go to constitutionparty.com and really do some research as to what the Constitution Party stands for. The Constitution Party stands behind the US Constitution 100%. The Constitution Party stands behind the Bill of Rights 100%. The Constitution Party stands behind the Declaration of Independence 100%!!!

    Check it out, people, the Constitution Party is the only real alternative to the Democrats and the Republicans.

    Mitt Romney will not beat Obama in a race. First,the contenders will make sure his Mormon faith is an issue. Now, the one million dollar contribution by a dummy corporation to his campaign will also be brought up. Then, someone will want to put Michelle Bachmann (dummb) up against him, with Sarah Palin (dumber) as her VP or vice versa. It will be interesting, to say the least.

    • just little ole me

      Sadly, Joe they will. I am Mormon and I am always harshly treated. Many just do not know the facts of our religion and twist it into something terrible. If I am going to be judged please do it by the facts and not some other religions understanding or others facts that they have not fully investigated or understood. By the way I do not consider Mitt Romney a good example of Mormons and their lies the tragedy of him being flaunted as us. He doesn’t live by the morals of our religion and he is not honest. This will be a real tragedy for us Mormons. We will be judged by others because of Mitt Romney. Many will not be able to separate the politician from the Mormon church. We will be judged because of him. We have been persecuted in history, driven out and killed because of our beliefs. We have worked hard to get where we are today with relative peace and I only think he may inflame some old wounds. He does not stand for Mormons please understand that. Many in my religion support him because he is Mormon and that is wrong too. We need to stand on values and principles no matter what religion we are. We are all God’s people no matter your religion. I stand with all my brothers and sisters.

    We keep hearing from the Obama apologists that when things go wrong it is the fault of Congress,especially the Republicans in the House, after all they are the ones with the power,right, they make the laws, the President only signs them,right, yeah sure. Seems to me that the most important thing that Republican/Conservative/Tea Party supporters can do in 2012 is get behind the Republican nominee, whoever that turns out to be, there is no perfect candidate alive at this time, so lets just defeat Obama and then make sure we do what really counts, take over the Senate and increase the seats in the House. I believe that if this is done and with the help of Independents, who now regret their support of Obama, we can take this Country back from the brink.

    • GregS

      Amen!!!

  • chuckb

    if you voted for obama in 2008 to prove you weren’t a racist. you’d better vote for some one else in 2012 to prove your not an idiot

  • http://kkersting@cox.net kimber3

    3rd party will put Obama back in White House, by unbelievable numbers!! You must really be a liberal…..Quit feeding such lies
    about a 3rd party winning under any circumstances! Voters get out to vote for the 1 Republicans/Conservatives/American Patriots (teaparty).
    Whoever the people chose to run against Obama. Don’t waste your vote on a 3rd party because we end up dividing our votes. Why don’t some of you get that???? If your party wins the primary, we will vote for them. If not, you vote for who is running, so Obama doesn’t get in…

    WASHINGTON DC – USA – An increasingly desperate Barack Obama has ordered twelve witch doctors from Kenya to be flown to the White House, CNN has reported.

    “Obama is so desperate that he’s turning to voodoo to get the U.S. economy back on track,” a Treasury employee told CNN.

    The White House was tonight being prepared for the arrival of the witch doctors, who will utilise many different techniques and materials for their special rituals.

    “Help From the Old Country”

    “They been doing this stuff for thousands of years so they know what to do. We’re bringing in some goats and chickens and putting them in the East room. I told ‘em to watch out though and not get any blood on the carpet,” a White House aide said.

    According to anthropological experts, the voodoo practitioners will all try to bring the U.S. economy back from the brink of certain destruction, but even if they fail, they will still get paid, much like real economic advisers and so-called experts.

    “We’re hoping for the Dow to rise by at least 600 points, depending on how many chickens are sacrificed,” one of the witch doctors revealed just before leaving Nairobi international airport yesterday.

    Unfortunately for Mr Obama, this is the last chance he has to make things work after he was caught sleeping on the job whilst a major economic meltdown happened right under his nose.

    “Obama is using American taxpayers’ money to fly these guys from Africa to Washington for three days, feed them and pay them. This just beggars belief,” John Bullwark, a senior GOP representative from Texas told Fox news.

    President Obama, who was attending his 50th hip hop shizazoe hizzoe bash yesterday, was not available for comment.

    I think New jersey governor Christie would be the best choice.He tells it like it is no holds barred.Last week he called the Birthers and Tea Partiers a bunch of Crazies.He is beginning to glow like little Mr. Sunshine in his popularity with such wisdom.

  • jopa

    Jay:That reminds me of the video when Palin was using witch doctors.Are they that remote in Wasilla Alaska they don’t have medical doctors or are these just her beliefs?

  • chuckb

    jopa, who needs a physician when you can get a witch doctor for a couple of chickens, you have to think and be thrifty.
    i understand barry has a voodoo doll that looks like palin, she better be wary when he starts sticking the pins.

    chuckb;That’s right I almost forgot about the chickens for health care in Arizona!

    In Barack Hussein Obama’s America, ordinary Americans exercising their Constitutional rights are considered “terrorists”, simply because they oppose his radical agenda.

    Obama’s contempt for us knows no bounds. His plan to suppress us is no longer constrained by the Constitution and the rule of law. Or so he hopes.

    Although Obama is trying to empty Guantánamo Bay of real terrorists, it is still too small for Obama to house the millions of Americans who now realize that he is an illegal President and has committed felonies both before and after occupying the White House.

    To facilitate the suppression of free speech and other Constitutional rights, the Obama White House has unveiled a new domestic terror strategy, which will be useful against Tea Party malcontents and supporters of Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann.

    According to the plan, local communities around the country are best suited to take on the challenge of combating the kind of violent extremism that inspires people to kill or oppose Obama’s policies. The strategy calls on federal agencies to help police, schools and community groups prevent violent extremism or the exercise of former Constitutional rights through the use of gulags and re-education camps.

    Unfortunately for Obama, his co-conspirators and sycophants, the scam is starting to unravel.

    The most pertinent questions in the coming months will be:

    Who will be sent to prison with Obama?
    Who will cop a plea for immunity from prosecution? (hint)
    Which members of Congress will be put out to pasture for their complicity?

    Obama is an illegal President according to Article II, Section I, Clause 5 of the Constitution and the binding precedent of Minor vs. Happersett (1875). There is no ambiguity, although those complicit in the fraud have deliberately provided information to mislead the American people.

    jay, i wonder why congress sits idly by and makes no attempt to clarify all the fraud surrounding barry, they keep avoiding the issue. everyone of them say they accept his bc as factual when a lot of experts claim it is fraudulent, a forgery.
    he certainly makes no attempt himself to clarify or produce records pertaining to his background, he has an in your face attitude, i refuse to identify myself.

    if you listen closely to what he says when questioned about any policy, he never gives a knowledgeable answer, he can’t answer most questions about any of the bills they debate. ( i bet he could tell you the basketball scores) i noticed this when he first ran for office.
    the dnc use the race card in defending him and so do the people that voted for him, this makes a lot people afraid to speak up. not me, i saw through this bird from the very beginning, especially after the debates, they were customized for him. mccain was a poor campaigner and i don’t think he was really interested in winning the presidency, i believe he is a do gooder and was enthralled at the prospect of a first black president. unfortunately the black people didn’t care if he was born in moscow, he is black, that’s all they need.
    when i first heard him when he was campaigning he impressed me and said some of the things that were important to me, this was quickly diminished, the more he spoke, the more i could tell his message was canned and he was only repeating what the teleprompter indicated.
    the black people that support him also have as their heroe’s barbara lee,shiela jackson lee, maxine waters and many more psuedo communist.

    people should judge the man not his color, in this case a prime example of failure because they failed to do so.
