    That is correct. I didn't notice. Somehow that seems to be of interest to you. I can't identify, but hey, go with it. You still haven't answer the question, why was Obama running out of people to blame?

    Anyone paying the LEAST bit of attention to the facts would have known that President Obama
    is blamed by Conservatives for anything and everything that goes wrong in this country. Anyone with their eyes and hears open would have known that President Obama has been consistently blamed for every fall in the stock market, dip in the economy, and every rise in gas prices. Ignorance is bliss. I dont believe you didnt "notice".


    Romney to a rock and a hard place
    byJed Lewison
    The Obama campaign congratulates the Republican Party's severely conservative presumptive nominee with a video serenade of the hard-right statements Mitt Romney made throughout the GOP primary:

    I was a "severly Conservative Governor".

    Its clear President Obama is the moderate in this race.


    It's a great video, well-worth watching, and is a reminder that Democrats aren't about to let Mitt Romney Etch-A-Sketch away the extremely conservative agenda he's embraced since launching his presidential campaign five years ago. And as Greg Sargent points out, the Republicans who finally realized they had no other choice than Mitt Romney as their nominee, actually are on the same side as the Obama campaign: they too want to make sure Romney sticks to his positions.

    Just one more example of the kind of extremism Presdent Obama is up against.
    I will just call it the SeriouslyWrong brand of slime politics. You know "Marxist wizard of Oz". Incredibly ignorant and dangerous.


    Allen West: I’ve ‘Heard’ That Up To 80 House Dems Are Members Of The Communist Party
    Rep. Allen West (R-FL) delivers the keynote address at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. on February 12, 2011.

    ERIC KLEEFELD APRIL 11, 2012, 9:55 AM 8844 272
    Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has done it again.

    At a campaign town hall event on Tuesday, the Palm Beach Post reports, West declared that he’s “heard” that up to 80 House Democrats are members of the Communist Party. However, he would not name any specific people.

    West also got in a verbal shot against President Obama, declaring that Obama is too scared to debate him:

    “I really wish that, standing here before you, was Allen West and President Obama,” West said. “We could have a simple discussion. But that ain’t ever gonna happen.”

    “Why not?” an audience member asked.

    “Cuz he was too scared!” West responded in a mocking voice.
    This is just the latest in a long line of provocative statements that West has made, which have helped to build up his notoriety — and his campaign coffers. In addition, Sarah Palin and Herman Cain have each suggested in recent days that West should be the Vice Presidential nominee on the 2012 Republican ticket.

    West became a star of conservative political circles, and subsequently launched his political career, after his military career ended when he fired a pistol next to the head of an Iraqi policeman during an interrogation. West said this was done in order to stop an impending attack on his unit, but no evidence of such a plan was found based on the policeman’s coerced confession.

    Since then, West has become known for declaring that America’s enemy is not just militant radical Islamism, but Islam itself.

    Following his election to Congress in 2010, and a controversy involving anti-government comments by a woman who had been his first choice for chief of staff, he said that in Congress he would remain focused that “this liberal, progressive, socialist agenda, this left-wing, vile, vicious, despicable machine that’s out there is soundly brought to its knees.”

    He has also called President Obama, whom he makes sure to refer to as “Barack Hussein Obama,” a “a low-level socialist agitator,” and he responded to an attack by DNC Chair and Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz by sending her a letter that declared she had “proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!”

    He has also said that Democratic Party has created what he calls a “21st-century plantation” over black voters, with appointed African-American politicians to act as “overseers” — the men who committed the day-to-day atrocities of ruling over slaves in the antebellum South. “So I’m here as the modern-day Harriet Tubman, to kind of lead people on the Underground Railroad, away from that plantation into a sense of sensibility.”

    West has further called upon military generals to resign their posts, rather than follow the orders of the Obama administration’s recently announced reorganization of the Armed Forces: “And they have to be very careful about blindly following a Commander-in-Chief that really does not have the best intent for our military.”

    Really? 80 House democrats are actuallly members of the communist party? Man, is that news or what?

    Obama was REALLY polarizing yesterday. It's funny that he said something to the effect that government makes decisions to benefit all Americans, yet he somehow forgot that the government legislated the tax deductions many corporations take for the benefit to America (I'm talking about "Big Oil").

    He was off and running about nothing that would help or harm this nation, just worried about how to get relected by agitating the masses on the subject of the rich.

    More evidence that President Obama is indeed a moderate.

    Eliot Spitzer: Obama 'Has Been On Wall Street's Side Since Day One'
    The Huffington Post | By Melissa Jeltsen
    Posted: 04/14/2012 12:33 pm Updated: 04/14/2012 12:59 pm



    When it comes to reforming Wall Street, President Obama is all talk, according to Eliot Spitzer.

    The former New York governor took to Reuters TV's Fast Forward with Chrystia Freeland to slam the president for what he says is a talk-tough, act-weak approach to the financial industry, which less than five years ago brought the global economy to the brink of disaster.

    "I'm not persuaded that this President has really been a voice for reform when it comes to Wall Street," he said. "Wall Street has pretended that it has taken its hits, but it really hasn't."

    Spitzer summarized Obama's efforts as the "occasional speech" criticizing Wall Street practices, largely followed by little to no substantial legislative action.

    "When it has come to actually putting in place the reform-based structure that would actually have changed the way the banking system works, he has really been on Wall Street's side since day one," Spitzer said.

    Spitzer criticized the Obama administration for what he perceives as opposition to the Volcker Rule, a key piece of financial reform that aimed to curb banks' high-risk bets with their own money. Such trading has been criticized for pitting banks against their own clients. The president first introduced the rule more than two years ago, calling it a "simple and common-sense reform" at the time.

    Spitzer also claims the White House did not fight to give judges the ability to reform mortgages in the wake of the housing collapse.


    "The White House and Treasury intervened to defeat that in the Senate, something that could have fundamentally altered the course of our mortgage crisis that still continues to this day," he said.

    Last week Mr. SeriouslyWrong said he had not actually stated that President Obama was a Marxist. Today it seems he has changed his mind and is willing to state that he is. I'm very glad to get clarification on this because now i know who i am talking to. No longer hiding behind his pretense of moderation so he should just let it rip. Im sure it was hard for him to keep lying on a daily basis
    about his true beliefs.

    AFL-CIO’s Trumka rips Obama: What about the government agencies. But he won’t say which ones.

    AFL-CIO’s Trumka rips Obama: What about the 99 percent?
    By Greg Sargent
    Last month, the AFL-CIO endorsed Obama, quieting all the talk about any rift or lingering differences between the President and organized labor. Many Dems hope enthusiastic union support will help Obama limit losses among blue collar whites in the swing states — something that could prove decisive in the 2012 election.

    Those hopes may have hit another snag: That rift has cracked open a bit once again.

    In an interview just now, AFL-CIO president Richard Trumka ripped into Obama for taking a key step this weekend towards the U.S.-Colombia Free Trade Agreement — which Trumka claimed would have domestic political ramifications for Obama. Trumka said continuing betrayal of labor would make it harder to turn out supporters this fall and was already muddying Obama’s efforts to draw a sharp contrast with Mitt Romney over who represents the 99 percent.

    “The more these things happen, where workers interests are subjugated to other interests, it has a cumulative effect, making it harder for us to energize our members and get them out in the numbers necessary in the fall,” Trumka told me.

    According to SiriuslyWrong these 72% must all be Marxists just like President Obama. Lmfao.



    Poll: Buffett Rule Enjoys Wide Support
    New numbers from CNN show the Buffett Rule, a proposal from the Obama Administration that would make those making more than a million dollars pay a higher effective tax rate, is supported by nearly three quarters of the American public. A 72 percent majority said they supported “…a proposal to change the federal income tax rates so that people who make more than one million dollars a year will pay at least 30 percent of their income in taxes,” versus 27 percent who were against it. The Buffett Rule, named after billionaire investor Warren Buffett, saw 90 percent support amongst Democrats, 69 percent of independent voters, and 53 percent of Republicans.

    I was hoping that he would be willing to address the fact that a large majority of the population seems to agree with President Obama on the Buffett Rule.

    Jon Stewart Rips The GOP’s Faulty Math


    DAVID TAINTOR APRIL 18, 2012, 9:49 AM 3050 9
    Jon Stewart on Tuesday turned to the so-called Buffett Rule, the proposal that Americans making more than $1 million a year should pay their fair share in taxes. To the Senate floor! Stewart said, where the rule was up for a vote on Monday.

    Republicans predictably filibustered, claiming that the estimated $47 billion it will raise in the next decade is a drop in the bucket. “That wouldn’t pay for half a day’s work on the secret reanimate Ronald Reagan project,” Stewart mocked.

    But point taken, he added. Then again, didn’t Republicans say $300 million was an awful lot to spend on Planned Parenthood? “Let me get this straight,” Stewart said. “$47 billion in millionaires’ money is less than $300 million in mammograms and birth control.”
