Nix on Obama

People who depend on the government for their survival will vote for the candidate who will keep those checks coming: Barack Obama.

In 2008, presidential candidate Barack Obama promised to fundamentally change America. As President, he has succeeded beyond anyone's dreams. We now have a Declaration of Dependence. 

Dependency is up 7.5 percent the past two years. Government dependency jumped 8.1 percent in the past year alone.  According to data, one in five Americans [20 percent] relies on the federal government for everything from housing and health care to food stamps and college tuition, and even cell phones. In 2011, the federal government paid $1.6 billion to cover the cost of cell phones and the monthly bills of 12.5 million wireless accounts. It is the result of Obama's economic policies. The "hope" of people to keep receiving assistance, the "change" from independent nation to dependent nation.

Walt.. your information is just plain wrong, smartypants. First of all-- I said look at the deficit increases of the Democratic Presidents before Bush.. It is easy to call someone an idiot... But at least read what i wrote. Look at the facts, unpleasant as they are: President Bush actually increased federal spending by more than 2X as much as Obama has. So it is unfair to lay the explosion in spending at the feet of President Obama: Both presidents are responsible.

He is in the video here where he says he regretted being part of the parade of false information on Iraq that was fed to the UN and Congress. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americas/2011/09/20119116916873488.html

JJ - Ok, maybe padding was too strong a word, maybe embellishing would be more acceptable. Kinda like the difference between slut and trollop, one is so much more polite than the other, right. Take a look at Dan's resume and let me know what you think a proper adjective would be. I hope that Dan in the future has more courtesy also and stops misquoting respected American jurists simply to aid his psuedo-intellectual rants on everything from bio-fuels to ethnic politics in the Middle East. I will say that he has a interested writing style and I usually get sucked into reading it before I realize it is just more of the same. But I don't understand the anger/personal attacks. Dan -Sotomayor is no great scholar and kagan is a self hating Jew - she an R2P'er - Dan - As for Ginsberg- to make the comments she did in Cairo - she should be impeached - "'do not look to the US Constitution - but look to others?"

Thanks for the kudos! Can I use you for a reference on my resume?

www.Aljazeera.com? That's your source? C'mon Man, at least find an American news outlet that bashes GW, there are plenty of them that are on board the obama express so it shouldn't be that difficult. What Powell said during his book tour was make headlines to sell books, if he had a problem with what was being said pre-Iraq, he should have opened his pie hole then.
