Michelle Obama told an audience attending her book signing Tuesday that the White House garden is still
A good, this whole time I thought it was completely closed… Thank goodness…..<sarcasm>
A startlingly listless President Obama appeared in the White House press room yesterday morning, spoke some dull preliminaries about the European financial crisis — and then slipped and tumbled headfirst into re-election quicksand from which he will find it very difficult to extricate himself.
Now, it is not the case that the president is finished because he said, “The private sector is doing fine” — even though those were the very words he spoke yesterday, the week after a jump in the unemployment rate and a downward revision of the GDP.
It’s just one quote, after all, and a lot can happen in five months. And while it’s inarguably a huge gift to the Romney campaign — one worth approximately three George Clooneys and six Sarah Jessica Parkers — the president’s rival is certainly capable of making blunders that will hand back some of the advantage.
No, “The private sector is doing fine” may prove to be the pivotal moment for the 2012 campaign because of what it demonstrates about the president’s ideas as he heads into the fight of his life.
With SOPA and PIPA out of the way, what other magic tricks does the entertainment industry of America have up its sleeve? How about having ISPs (Internet Service Providers — your Internet company) play copyright cop.
Internet service providers (ISPs) across the United States are set to voluntarily begin a digital surveillance operation so large that nothing can even come close in the history of espionage.
Starting on July 12, 2012, if you download software, videos or music which are potentially protected by copyright, you very well might find yourself targeted by any of America’s behemoth ISPs.
Possibly the most troubling aspect of this is that these corporations are putting these so-called anti-piracy measures in place on a wholly voluntary basis in accordance with a deal with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Obama White House.
RIP Ronald Reagan. Every year on the anniversary of his death First Lady Nancy Reagan visits her husbands gravesite at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Ca

-US Gross Debt 2010 – $14,867.5bn 97% of GDP (US Debt) (US have two figures, gross debt (97% of GDP) includes funds held by government e.g. social security. Net debt (60% of GDP) below excludes this.
-There are 15+ countries in Europe That HAVE MORE DEBT then the united states per GDP….but Obama wants us to be more like them…One more term with him and we will be just like the rest of the European nations.
SH*%$ Liberals say! BEST VIDEO EVER:) If you don’t watch any of my stuff, atleast WATCH THIS!:)
Lets give the Obama administration a message!!! Lets see how many people (like/re-blog) Think/Know Obamacare is UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
First of all, let me state that I do not hate anyone (not even people that did me wrong). I strongly dislike Obama because he is not for-the-people, like a president should be. He has other motives (his own motives) and that frightens me a lot. I personally think that he doesn’t care for the American people at all. I disagree with his fiscal policies. It is those policies that are going to cause major issues in the near future of the country.
Think about it for a second, not a single representative in Congress, Republican or Democrat voted for his budget proposals, not a single one. That should tell you something right there. He is completely out of touch with the current fiscal situation. You want more? well here’s a list. He comes of as Marxist. Plain and simple. He bypasses the U.S. Constitution. He’s corrupt. He’s dragged this country into $7 trillion dollars more debt. He’s been racially divisive and He’s attempted to deprive Americans of more of their constitutional liberties. Theres other reasons why I would like him out of office (not necessarily hate him because I don’t know him personally) But this would be a very long answer haha!;)
American employers added fewer workers than forecast in April and the jobless rate unexpectedly fell as people left the labor force
Payrolls climbed 115,000, the smallest increase in six months, after a revised 154,000 gain in March that was larger than initially estimated, Labor Department figures showed today in Washington. The median estimate of 85 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News called for a 160,000 advance. The jobless rate fell to a three-year low of 8.1 percent, and earnings stagnated.
“From green jobs that never materialized to an unemployment rate that has remained above 8 percent for 39 straight months, President Obama’s rhetoric simply doesn’t match with his failed economic record,”-romney
What do you think, Is it Obama’s fault?
For a president whose only selling point these days is “cool” — and who is used to campaigning surrounded by faux Greek columns and adoring fans and cult-like music videos– this must come as quite a shock to the system. Perhaps the president, desperate to recapture a moment that is forever gone, can relate to the lyrics of a genuine aging rock star, Bruce Springsteen:
Now I think I’m going down to the well tonight
and I’m going to drink till I get my fill
And I hope when I get old I don’t sit around thinking about it
but I probably will
Yeah, just sitting back trying to recapture
a little of the glory of, well time slips away
and leaves you with nothing mister but
boring stories of glory days.
Barack Obama — with no record he can defend and no governing vision he can describe — may soon be left with nothing but boring stories of glory days.
Rick Santorum could endorse Mitt Romney for president in the next week, a top adviser to the former Pennsylvania senator said.
John Brabender, who served as Santorum’s chief campaign adviser, said that if an endorsement of Mitt Romney is going to happen, it’s going to happen soon.
Brabender’s prediction came after Santorum and Romney met for about 90 minutes Friday morning in Pittsburgh. Brabender said the conversation was “very friendly yet certainly a very serious talk.”
In particular, Santorum discussed manufacturing and “pro-family issues” with the former Massachusetts governor, according to CNN.
An endorsement by Santorum could boost Romney with the conservative and religious wings of the Republican party. When he ran for president, Santorum worked to win the Republican nomination from the right, often criticizing Romney for not being conservative enough and for being too quick to change positions.
In the same interview Brabender said that an endorsement by Santorum would likely help Romney.
“I think if an endorsement comes it’ll have more weight and will be more helpful to Mitt Romney if indeed that happens,” Brabender said.
Wow this graph really says it all.
The Labor Force Participation Rate shows what percentage of people are working,looking for a job and not looking for a job. It is a better yardstick to measure the workforce in America than is the usually cited “unemployment rate” which doesn’t count people who are so frustrated and stopped looking for a job.
The graph shows a huge upswing in labor participation through the Reagan years. George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush kept the numbers up in Reagan territory. Since Obama has taken over, he has wiped out the entirety of the Reagan gains.
