Obama, In Morning Joe Interview, Predicts War Inside Republican Party If He Is Reelected

Obama, In Morning Joe Interview, Predicts War Inside Republican Party If He Is Reelected

Commented Oct 29, 2012 at 13:25:48 in Politics

“If Obama is elected, Republicans will cave because they will be so unpopular, that at the next mid term elections they will ALL be thrown out. If Romney is elected: war with Iran, more troops into Afghanistan, higher taxes for the 47%, destruction of medicare and social security, repeal of Affordable Care Act, and regulations going out the window AND the Greatest Depression this country has ever seen. Either way...taxes have GOT to be raised on all those who make over 250,000 a year to the levels of Clintons admin when we created a surplus, and had a tremendous number of new jobs, until Bush cut taxes and destroyed the economy.”

“Your remarks ignore acedemic political correctness. You may say this has nothing to do with Obama, but when he spoke at Georgetown University, aCatholic university, the holy cross in the background was covered up. I supported Obama in speaking before Notre Dame, even though his position on abortion is contrary to the church's. But the way I feel if he wants to talk at GU, he should put up with the cross. And so should those who thought up doing this. I happen to be a Cold War veteran, and want the cross in the background. IF the president or anyone else doesn't like it...tough.”

“In 2008 twitter and facebook and the internet were important, but they hadn't been used as effectively as they are now...every time Romney opens his mouth now someone twitters his statement, it goes to be factchecked, and a reply is usually going to the Huffington Post or ABC, NDC, CNBC,or CBS within minutes. This is the world of instant communications. He is visible 24/7 100% of the time. Why do you think a picture was posted of him smirking after he gave that statement about Libya...people died and he was smirking and it went viral. He and the Republican Party have policies that are detrimental to the middle class and the 99% of Americans...they think they can lie and lie and at some point they will be believed..fact checking has got them by the B...s...Huffington post has got them by the B...s. Their pretend policies have got them by the B...s...and stupidly they don't understand...Yes the economy is bad...but the intelligent Americans sees that it is slowly getting fixed DESPITE the Republican obstacle course. What do the billions buy him? TV and Newspaper Ads. Where do more and more people get their news from now...INTERNET!!! Progressives Win! Obama Wins!”

“some friends and I watched the conventions...Before Republican Convention: 12 for Romney - 2 for Obama...after Repub convention: 7 for Romney 4 for Obama 3 undecided...after Clinton spoke: 9 for Obama - 3 undecided - 1 for Romney - 1 for other. I would say that Romney was flat on his convention...it seemed like a party for the Rich...with no substance for the ordinary person who aspire just to be part of a Middle Class...After the Democratic Convention we saw real people talking about our problems adn taking about real solutions. Clinton nailed it for us. He was the explainer in chief. He gave us history and facts in a way we could all understand. In our group (political science) we saw what happened when the REAL facts were presented in a way you could understand. (We had two people doing fact checks on all major speakers) Ryan failed miserably...he had 27 major lies... not just false statements... out and out Lies. Clinton succeeded beyond my expectations...and I was never a Clinton supporter. He had no false statements and only two which were were uncertain of but after the fact learned that they were true. We did not know that while the Republicans had the presidency for 28 years they only generated 24 million jobs. Democrats had the presidency for 24 years and generated 44 million jobs. That was fact checked and Totally true.”

“Thank you! You just said, almost verbatim, what I've been saying about the conventions, especially Clinton's incredibly educational speech that I hope everyone was paying attention to...I'm glad to hear your friends, for the most part, came to the sane conclusion...as many more have I hope! :-)”

“Being friends to some pagans, there was an argument months ago as to whether it was ethical to do a spell to send bad things the speakers way. The majority opinion was as follows: It is ok for Pagans to work spells...after all thats also what prayers are...what spells are done for a purpose...But it is not ethical to work a spell that harms someone intentionally unless that person is attempting to harm you or someone else (Obama)..and even then it would depend on the degree of danger...first step is to bind that person (They Did) ...next step is to reflect all negativity back to that person and away from Obama (They Did) ...third step is to just get the job done (They didn't go that far)...But their spell places a sphere of energy around the person being protected (Obama) and all negative energy is reflected back on the person sending the negative energy...they are not sure if ALL the energy he is responsible for (those people he sent an e-mail to) will go back on him or also to those people who send the disgusting prayer to harm Obama....We shall see...this will be one of those experiments to see HOW Magick works...Monitor the situation and see what happens.”

“Breakingpoint...I love it when a Republican/Libertarian Shill posts dozens of posts trying to take down an excellent president but offering no solution to those statements he makes. Barak lives in the United States and for the first three years he thought he could compromise with the Criminal Party Of No. After all thats what he did in the Senate...tried to work with people. But during the last year he woke up and began using his skills as a lawyer and pretty well put the wood to the opposition. I LOVE that path because the American people don't think much of the republican congress (15% approval) and they are going to show their choice by electing Barak...I LOVE THAT PATH!”

“Thats because he hasn't got a plan and what you heard was a description of "Ive got a plan but I'm not going to tell you what it is"...just like "I have tax returns but I'm not going to reveal them" just like my plan is to Lower the taxes on the rich (Romney and Ryan !) and Raise taxes on everyone else (ME!) and take all benefits from the poorest of the poor to pay for them (Let them eat Cake!). I'm sorry, but I am not in the mood to pay for Romneys horse or his tax break to himself or another war with Iran or Tax breaks to the Koch brothers. I am tired of subsidizing the Rich! They have yet to generate any substantial jobs.”

“Excellent points...I am working for Obama and will continue to work for Obama...got 13 die hard Republicans to sit through a Democratic acceptance speech. And did the same thing with Michele's and Bills speeches with the same people. These are the same people I showed how FOX News had lied to them...how FOX News won an appeals court case allowing them to Lie in 2003...showing them the actual case and result. Originally had 14, but one of the original decided that they were more interested in the ball game on both nights. They thought Politics was just depressing. These were people from a class I am taking in Jr. College. We watched the Republican Convention too. They were enthusiastic about Ryans speech until I passed out a three page sheet with all his statements and proof that he was lying. I asked them to do the same with Michele's, and Bills and Barry's. They could not refute anything he said. We had a fact check person list every statement by all politicians as they made them. Blew them away when they found out that under Democrats, there were twice as many jobs created during the last 50 years than under Republicans.”

“Well on most of those matters you mentioned, ask the republican House...they have been blocking all attempts at fixing the economy...their prime objective for the last almost four years has been to unelect President Obama. They would not support anything he proposed because it might succeed. Even the minority leader of the Senate Mich McConnell said as much right after the President took his oath. I have had no respect for Republican Legislatures after that and I was a Republican until I saw McConnell indicate he cared more for power that this Country. The Republican Party has turned into a Nazi party.”

Has Team Romney Forgotten That The Bush Years Were Terrible?

Commented May 1, 2012 at 18:55:14 in Politics

“When Bush left office in the last month he lost 3 million Jobs. And left us with a 10 trillion dollar deficit - Thank you Dubya and now Obama is well on his way to getting us back on track and Romney wants to take us back to the Bush philosophy of cut taxes on the rich but raise taxes on the poor and middle class and cut all help for anyone and take us over the economic cliff when Obama almost has us out of danger. TRICKLE DOWN DOESN'T WORK and every time its tried we go into a depression or recession. The unemployment rate when BUSH left office was 7.8

Obama passed the stimulus. The stimulus that worked.BUSH bailed out the banks and the auto industry. Now the American auto industry is slightly booming at the moment. Hiring and everything. And the banksters are rich and under-taxed. As much as I hate to admit it - something horrible Bush did actually worked.

Get that? Bush bailed out the banks and the auto industry in '08. Guess who wasn't President until January '09? Someone who couldn't have bailed out anything yet. Obama got stuck with its implementation but he didn't start it. Bush is the Bailout President. Remember: "I've abandoned free-market principles to save the free-market system."”
