Re-elect President Obama!
Posted by Kacey (+3159) 9 years ago
The convention is amazing. The speakers are wonderful. I especially enjoyed the people who used to work at Bain..yes, the wonderful Romney business enterprise. Between the two people they spoke of over 1000 people who lost their jobs while Romney walked way with hundreds of millions of dollars. He destroyed the communities where those business used to exist. He didn't care. They are little people, not people of power who mattered.

Romney said to let the automotive industry fail. Obama loaned them money..which they paid back ahead of time. Our country MADE money on those loans. And our auto industry is strong again.

While Romney destroyed the lives of literally thousands (adding in the family members who were impacted) while Obama saved thousands.

Not a tough choice.

Enjoying it myself. Very encouraged by a lot of focus on education. Denise Juneau from Montana was great, I thought. A nice person who has done a lot of good for our State. The President may make a surprise show tonight as I heard Andrea Mitchell say he was on his way. Very fun.. would love to go sometime. Wonder what our Governor will come up with...tomorrow night maybe.

Kacey, the way the auto industry was rescued could fill another thread, my point is that the Treasury Dept. on Aug. 13, 2012 revised the amount of money the government would lose from 14 billion to 25 billion.

Lose money from what? The Treasury did not post any notices on that date. Where are you getting your facts?

Should we consider the work of Romney? How do we know that he isn't using cunning words so that we hire him?

ARITHMETIC!!! That was damn "cunning" I think Clinton's speech was brilliant. Since it was aimed at the independents and undecided.We won't waste our time worrying about Angel2 and her tea party friends not getting it. They have already made up their (minds?). The only chance the Republicans have of winning this election is blocking the vote of the people. We can't let that happen. Let's start pushing voter registration.

Got that info from James on FB.

Some sweet person will make this "live" for me. Thanks.

Love the focus on education...not the building where it takes place...but, education for all. Making it happen.

Have not seen whether or not Boehner (R-Ohio) has brought forth the Ag Bill for a vote. Only a couple of days left and last I heard the farmers need to have it passed to get in the field.

YOU KNOW AFTER READING THIS POST I CAN CLEARLY SAY WITHOUT RESTRAINT THAT YOU ARE SO MISGUIDED AND FOOLED INTO BELIEVING CRAP THAT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO THE BIG PICTURE. I WORKED FOR THE FEDERAL GOVT FOR MANY YEARS AND WORKED IN ONE WHITE HOUSE AS A STAFFER. I CAN REST MUCH EASIER AT NITE KNOWING THERE ARE REPUBLICANS IN THE WHITE HOUSE INSTEAD OF DEM'S. OBAMA IS VERY VERY BAD NEWS FOR THIS NATION. LOOK PEOPLE THOSE PEOPLE THAT SPOKE ON "BAIN" SURE THEY WOULD TELL A DIFFERENT STORY. ROMNEY IS A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN AND WELL CONNECTED. OBAMA WAS A COMMUNITY ACTIVIST IN HIS YOUNGER DAYS AND KNOWS HOW TO PLAY THE MEDIA TO HIS ADVANTAGE. I KNOW FACTS AND THAT IS HOW I VOTE, AND MY INSIGHT INTO THE POLITICAL WORLD FROM PERSONAL KNOWLEDGE OF BEING IN THE INNER CIRCLE IN THE PAST AND OBAMA WILL DESTROY OUT NATION AND BRING IT TO ITS KNEES. DO NOT VOTE FOR HIM. DO YOU REALIZED THEY WANT TO DO AWAY WITH "GOD", THEY ARE VERY DISRESPECTFUL TO OUR MILITARY IN PRIVATE AND THE PUBLIC DOES NOT SEE OR KNOW THIS. DON'T BE SUCH A FOOL AND LET THE WOLF BITE YOU AND WE MAY JUST COME OUT OK. A VOTE FOR OBAMA IS A VOTE TO DESTROY OUR NATION.

Don't be frightened, Dave. Goodness...I don't think you will ever have to give up God. Nor, do I think the President would want you to do so. I get information all the time and not even one mention of anything scary. He is a good man for ALL!!!

Regarding BAIN CAP., I did see where people were directed to build a platform for Mr. Romney to stand on when he fired them.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Dave Herring, Thank you for enlightening all of us!! We in our family agree with everything you said!! Way to go!!

I think we need to speak out the truth!!! I have worked in a Government Office as well, not in the White House though , I worked at the Senate Office, when I was younger to pay for my college, in a different country!!! I think the system here is similar. I learned that Congressman, Senators, etc... who are the leaders of the Country, get funds (from taxes) for the improvement of the country like roads , bridges, schools etc.. for their state where ever they belong. And that Senator can give it to the Businessman , who do business in building schools or contractor to build roads and bridges etc.. whoever he/she pleased . Most Government Officials who is corrupt will give it to his friends instead of looking for a contractor who would do the best job . But a corrupt official will give it to a businessman who can give them money under the table and who will give him back the money for her/his re-election. And we are talking billions and millions of money !!!! that they receive from the government. So there is corruption going on... They talked on tv how Obama gave money to his cronies, the Solyndra, who in turn gave him funds for his re-election. We need to stop corruption !! And we the taxpayers can make the difference if we choose wisely this coming November!! The wise thing to do is OMG!! Obama must go and re-elect another President!!! We need to change the President!!

Gunmar , everything I said are true!! I am talking about myself and what I learned while working in the Senate office. Who are you to say it is not true??? You were not there when I was working with a Senator. I don't know you and vice versa!!! Maybe you should look in the mirror .

Dave Herring,
Did you not watch the news? When President Obama heard they took God out of the Democratic platform he made them put it back in!

I have spoken with President Obama about our military and veterans. He has done tremendous things to help them. I know this PERSONALLY.

What proof do you have of your rants?

." They talked on tv how Obama gave money to his cronies, the Solyndra, who in turn gave him funds for his re-election. We need to stop corruption !! "

________________________________________________________________

Lets add the Solyndra dollars and compare the dollars Halliburton recieved before, during and after the Iraq war.(Thanks Mr Cheney) The "TV" you speak of must be Fox and Im sure they didnt balance their information.

"angel2" == "cp1"

It's only a matter of time before people who try to secretly maintain multiple accounts here make the mistake of posting as "person A" under "person B's" account. The lower their IQ, the more quickly it happens.

Who controlled Congress when Clinton was in the White House?


The Democrats controlled both the House and Senate the first two years. So why didn't Hillary's Health plan pass? Because both sides of th aisle were bought off by the same lobbyists. Money deluged the country fighting a health care plan. In two years the house changed and Newt Gingrich and the Contract for America were in Charge. We lost very good congressmen during that time including Pat Williams. I was in Washington lobbying for special education and went to a reception with Sen. Chris Dodd and Congressman, George Miller from Caliornia and they related the atmophere had turned ugly and mean spirited when the republicans took over the house. History repeats itself over and over.

That issue of the New Yorker has several articles worth reading especially an article on Voter Fraud and and how the republicans use this myth to disenfranchise voters likely to vote democratic.
