Yes folks “Joe has done it again! As America‘s History moves forward, one can look back and find many funny vice President that have shared the white House, however i do not think there be any one funnier, nor more shocking than that good ole “Joe”; but that as it may be is not the problem, the problem begins with the kid glove return action of all republicans and conservatives alike after being verbally assaulted by Democrats and their cronies, as it is apparent by Romney’s reply to the newest White House verbal assault on him. Just as resently as few days ago Romney and Ryan were shown in an photo shop doctored poster as Gay Lovers which was posted on Tweeter by some  fan, ( YEAH Right!). I do not know about you , but I am sick and tired of all under handed attacks and also  the reply that is given by the victims of political verbal assault. It is time to take a stand and let the Democrats know it is NOT OK, to say what they think, and wash it off by apology, boo hoo to that. It is easy to go ahead and trash some one in the political arena, and later, and i say  maybe apologize for that remark or statement;  Well, Enough is enough. Let us unite on either side and stop this political whore-dome. Speak up America…………..

Biden: Romney Banking Policies Will Put ‘You All Back in Chains’

Tuesday, 14 Aug 2012 02:09 PM

By Henry J. Reske

 

Vice President Joe Biden charged that Mitt Romney’s policies on banking would put Americans “back in chains,” NBC News reported.

Biden, known for his over-the-top rhetoric, made the comment in a campaign stop in Danville, Va. It apparently stems from Romney opposition to financial reforms enacted by the Obama administration in response to the 2008 financial crisis.

“Romney wants to, he said in the first 100 days, he’s gonna let the big banks again write their own rules,” Biden said according to NBC. “’Unchain Wall Street!” Biden added, “They’re going to put you all back in chains.”

The Romney campaign labeled the remarks as a “new low” after weeks of “slanderous and baseless accusations leveled against Governor Romney.”

“The comments made by the Vice President of the United States are not acceptable in our political discourse and demonstrate yet again that the Obama campaign will say and do anything to win this election,” Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said according to NBC. “President Obama should tell the American people whether he agrees with Joe Biden’s comments.”

White House Dirty Tactics, SHAME ON YOU!

The Obama campaign began airing a TV ad Saturday in key election states  attacking Mitt Romney for his stances on abortion and Planned Parenthood that  was immediately rebuked by the Romney campaign as “viciously” negative and  false.

The 30-second spot titled “Troubled” is airing in Virginia and seven other  swing states.

“Every woman who believes decisions about our bodies and our health-care  should be our own is troubled Mitt Romney supports overturning Roe v. Wade,” says a female voice at the beginning of the ad. “Romney backed a law that  outlaws all abortions, even in cases of rape and incest.”

Romney, though, has not taken that position publicly.

In response, the Romney campaign pointed to Romney’s op-ed last year in the  National Review titled “My Pro-Life Pledge” in which he said abortion should be “limited to only instances of rape, incest or to save the life of a mother.”

The campaign also argued the ad began airing the day after a U.S.  unemployment report that showed the jobless rate remains at 8.2 percent.

“It’s no coincidence that a day after a disastrous jobs report, the Obama  campaign drops viciously negative and false ads against Gov. Romney desperate to  change the subject,” spokeswoman Amanda Henneberg told FoxNews.com. “The economy  has gone negative on President Obama, so he has decided to go negative on Mitt  Romney.”

The ad also includes a video clip of Romney in which the GOP presidential  candidate appears to imply he will get rid of Planned Parenthood, which the ad  states provides “life-saving cancer screenings.”

Romney made clear after making the statement in March that if elected he  would cut federal funding to — but not eliminate — Amtrak and the National  Endowment for the Arts to reduce the federal debt.

The ad also refers to a 2007 debate to imply Romney backed a law that outlaws  all abortions. At that debate, Romney said he would prefer there be no  abortions, though he did not refer to the specifics of any proposed  law.

A campaign source said Romney’s statements were taken out of context and not  a legitimate basis for the Obama campaign’s argument in the ad.

The other states in which the ad will air are Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Ohio,  New Hampshire, Nevada and North Carolina.

“It Is a Tax and It’s Constitutional”

Romney on ObamaCare: “It Is a Tax and It’s Constitutional

Written by 

“This is one of the reasons Nobama will be re elacted “

 

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney has reassured the electorate that he agrees with the Supreme Court’s ruling that the infamous “individual mandate” that is the cornerstone of the Affordable Health Care Act — i.e. “ObamaCare” — is a tax.

This comes just days after one of Romney’s advisers, Eric Fehrnstrom — presumably speaking on behalf of the former Massachusetts governor — described the mandate as a penalty, not a tax.

The apparent inconsistency between Fehrnstrom’s characterization of the unpopular mandate and the more recent description offered by Romney has exposed the latter to the all-too-familiar charge that he is a “flip flopper.”

However, whatever grounds critics may have for regarding Romney as a man whose positions on the issues come and go with the political winds, their conclusion in this instance may have been drawn in haste. On the Fourth of July, while speaking with CBS News, Romney stated his view clearly and succinctly. “The Supreme Court has spoken,” he said.  Although his sympathies lie with the dissent, the fact of the matter is that the majority declared that it is a tax. “They have spoken,” Romney asserted, “there is no way around that.”

Romney’s position here is no different from that taken by the American majority that has opposed ObamaCare from the beginning. For that matter, it isn’t clear that his adviser’s perspective is out of sync with either the Republican Party or the American mainstream that rejects Obamacare as a historically unprecedented encroachment on their liberties. After all, the same people who despised the president’s signature legislation prior to Justice John Roberts’ unanticipated opinion remain equally disdainful of it today. All that has changed, though, is that they now despise the Court’s majority ruling just as much.

Along with the majority of his fellow Americans who wish to see Obamacare repealed, Romney insists that the court should not have ruled that the mandate is constitutional as a tax. But in his July 4 interview, Romney also says it’s now constitutional because the court says it’s constitutional. In Romney’s own words:

The Supreme Court has the final word. And their final word is that Obamacare is a tax. So it’s a tax. They decided it was constitutional. So it is a tax and it’s constitutional. That’s the final word. That’s what it is.

Undoubtedly, unlike the presumptive Republican standard-bearer, many of those who believe that ObamaCare was unconstitutional prior to the court’s ruling still believe that ObamaCare is unconstitutional after the court’s ruling — despite what the court said. They may agree with Romney that ObamaCare is a tax while disagreeing with him that it’s constitutional.

But it is the question of flip-flopping, and not Romney’s view that the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is constitutional, that has generated media attention over Romney’s remarks on the court’s decision. Even if Romney can successfully defy the allegation that his stance on ObamaCare is but the latest instance of his flip flopping, his supporters concede that he is now vulnerable on a new front: Romneycare.  Romney has always insisted that as the governor of Massachusetts, he never once raised taxes. But if the individual mandate of ObamaCare is a tax, then it appears that the individual mandate of Romneycare — the universal health are system for the residents of Massachusetts to which Romney gave rise—is also a tax.

Romney, though, thinks otherwise.

He told CBS’s Jan Crawford:

Actually the chief justice, in his opinion, made it very clear that, at the state level, states have the power to put in place mandates. They don’t need to require them to be called taxes in order for them to be constitutional.  And as a result, Massachusetts’ mandate was a mandate, was a penalty, was described that way by the legislature and by me. And so it stays as it was.

Whatever one thinks of Romney’s responses to the challenges that this Supreme Court decision poses to his campaign, the president and his supporters should proceed with caution when launching their attack against their opponent.

Prior to the Supreme Court decision, President Obama repeatedly stated that the individual mandate is not a tax.  For example, in September of 2009 while being interviewed by George Stephanopoulos, Obama said in no uncertain terms that “I absolutely reject that notion” that the mandate is a tax increase.

In his press conference following the ruling, Obama stated triumphantly that “the highest court in the land has now spoken” on the constitutionality of his healthcare act.  Yet it had also blatantly contradicted the President’s protestations against his critics’ claim that the mandate is the largest middle class tax increase in American history.

Obama’s opponents wasted no time in exploiting his political vulnerability on the issue. Sarah Palin, for example, immediately tweeted: “Obama lied to the American people. Again. He said it wasn’t a tax. Obama lies; freedom dies.”

Obama is now just as susceptible to the charge of flip flopping as Romney had ever been. Also, the very same Supreme Court upon whose authority he depends to lend constitutional legitimacy to Obamacare is the Court that has now made him the owner of a tax increase unrivaled in size and kind.

Trump to Newsmax: I’m Mulling Own Super PAC to Defeat Obama

Wednesday, 23 May 2012 07:11 PM

By Jim Meyers and John LeBoutillier

Billionaire businessman Donald Trump tells Newsmax he is seriously considering launching his own super PAC to produce anti-Obama ads showing how Washington is allowing outsiders to “absolutely suck the blood out of this country.”Trump sat down in New York on Wednesday with former Congressman and Newsmax columnist John LeBoutillier for an exclusive interview exploring a wide range of topics, including the economy and the deficit, Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign, the Keystone pipeline, the “disaster” of Obamacare, Facebook, potential GOP vice presidential nominees, and the European financial crisis.

LeBoutillier asked the real estate mogul and host of “The Apprentice” if anyone has approached him to fund a super PAC to support political candidates.

“Yes they have, and I am thinking about just doing my own super PAC.
“There was a recent [anti-Obama] commercial done where they made him look like a superhero. I’m saying, who made this commercial? I thought it was one of the worst commercial I’ve ever seen.

“If I did one I would show how bad we’re doing as a country, how disrespected we are as a country. I would show people from OPEC, 11 people sitting around a beautiful gold-encrusted table talking about how they are going to continue to rip off the United States.

“I would do one on China and talk about the manipulation of their currency, which is draining the blood out of this country. We could stop that very easily. All we have to do is impose a 25 percent tax on their products coming in. Somebody would say, Oh gee, what about free trade?
Well, I’m a believer in fair trade, not necessarily free trade. We don’t have fair trade. You try to do business in China. It’s very very hard. It’s a one-way street.”

Trump flirted with the idea of a presidential candidacy last year and even enjoyed a brief turn in the polls as the frontrunner. He first gained serious attention in March 2011 with his harsh words for China and his tough critique of the Obama administration’s weak foreign policy.

“My super PAC ads would be focused on how outside places and outside things are absolutely sucking the blood out of this country, and this country can’t be great again unless it really starts to generate money. You can’t fund Medicare, you can’t fund Social Security, unless we start to generate money, and we can’t because outside sources are taking our money. We’re like children with a wallet and they’re just taking the money right out of our wallet.”

Trump comments on a new Wall Street Journal/NBC poll showing that 48 percent of the American people think the country is in a serious long-term decline. “I’m actually surprised that 48 percent is the number because you would think it would be much higher,” he says. “If people knew what was going on, which obviously they don’t when I hear that number, it should be much higher.


“The country’s in serious trouble. We owe $16 trillion. We have other countries making our product, particularly China. We have OPEC taking advantage of us and laughing at us all the way to the bank.
“This year China‘s going to make $350 billion from us, and they take our jobs and they manipulate their currency. What they do is unbelievable, and they laugh at us. They think we’re stupid. They think we’re led by a group of fools.

“You come back to this country and you land at La Guardia or Kennedy or in Los Angeles and we’re like a Third World country. We go to other countries, you see their airports, they’re incredible. So when I heard numbers like that I’m actually surprised. We are doing very poorly as a country and we’ve become a laughingstock for other countries.”

Asked how the nation can reverse that decline, Trump responds confidently: “It’s not difficult. We have such tremendous potential in this country, maybe more than ever before, because over the past several years we’ve found that we have a lot of energy under our feet that we never knew existed before, and new technology gets us that energy, whether it’s natural gas or even clean coal.

“I see what they’re doing with coal. We ship tremendous amounts of coal to China. Believe me they don’t clean it and we’re not allowed to use it in this country.

“We’re closing up coals plants all over the place and yet China is spewing out [pollution] like it’s nothing. So we don’t use our resources. When you talk about the energy under our own feet, when you look at North Dakota and a few other places where they’re going wild and where unemployment is at such a great level, and you look at what’s happening between the Environmental Protection Agency and all the environmental problems that have been falsely created, we’re not allowed to take our own energy.

“I’m a big fan of the Keystone pipeline. But at the same time I don’t even like getting energy from Canada, and I love Canada. But we don’t need energy from Canada. We have it all here.

“With that being said, we should still have the Keystone pipeline. It means thousands and thousands of jobs and it’s another resource for energy so it’s a good thing, and it’s only going to be sold to China anyway.

“We have such potential for turning what sounds like insurmountable deficits into tremendous positive balance, and we can do it quickly with the right leadership.”

Speaking more specifically about cutting the deficit, Trump tells Newsmax: “I’ve heard the Ryan plan and I think it is very dangerous for the Republicans. People are going to vote against a lot of very good Republicans because they’re talking about cutting Medicare and cutting Medicaid and cutting Social Security, and I think the Republicans better be damned careful because that plan is a disaster.

“All you have to do is take a look at what happened in Buffalo, N.Y. A very popular Republican woman was running, and she embraced that plan and she lost to a Democrat no one had ever heard of.

“I’m very strong on defense. I am the biggest hawk that you can be so I’m not for cutting defense. If anything, I’m increasing defense. I am for increasing the economy.

“When the economy gets good, Social Security all of a sudden works, Medicare works. You have to get rid of the fraud, the waste and all of that with Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security. But all these things start to work when the economy is booming.

“Now [these entitlements are] such a tremendous factor. Why? Because China’s making our product and OPEC is ripping us. Colombia, a small trading partner, last year made $4 billion on us. We can’t keep going like this. We need people who know what they’re doing in terms of business and negotiations.

“You also need people with heart. And I think Mitt Romney’s the perfect combination we’re going to see. I heard Mitt start talking about China, and he’s the only one that gets it, the only one who understands what China is doing to this country. And I immediately said, That’s the guy.”

Trump believes that Romney’s election could unleash business spending and spur the growth the economy needs: “I think just the fact that he came in and got elected would have a tremendous boost for this country. We have a wet blanket over this country right now, a real damper, and frankly a real downer, and the fact that he would win would have a tremendous positive impact.”

Trump says the Obama campaign’s attempts to attack Romney over his management of Bain Capital “may be working. But I think it’s very unfair. Mitt Romney did a great job at Bain. You look at Staples, which was a disaster. He got involved, invested money, and it’s a great company today.

“Give me the greatest deal maker and I can tell you deals that didn’t work. But overall they’re billions and billions of dollars up. It’s very unfair.

“I think there’s a very good chance [the attack on Romney over Bain] is a way of trying to get the Obama point across, whether it’s fair or not, and that’s why I tell Mitt and I tell everybody, You’re going to have to be just as vicious as they are. They have to also bring things up.

“You look at some of the deals done by this country. Solyndra, a total catastrophe; $500 million thrown out the window. We have to be very strong. That means bringing up Rev. Wright. That is not an old story.

It’s a brand-new story because a very very good writer, a great reporter named Ed Klein, did a book and he’s got recent tapes, recent interviews with Rev. Wright, and Rev. Wright calls Obama essentially a liar. I don’t know why the Republicans wouldn’t be using that kind of stuff.

“Here’s the thing: It’s going to be a vicious campaign against Mitt Romney and the Republicans. The Republicans likewise are going to have to counterattack. John McCain is a fine man. He ran a campaign where he didn’t want to use any of the things that he had. I hope that Mitt is going to be equally as strong as Obama’s going to be.”

Asked what he thinks of The Washington Post running a front-page expose on Mitt Romney’s behavior in boarding school, claiming he took part in an attack on a fellow student, Trump responds: “It was a disgrace, and I don’t believe it happened.

“Frankly, Mitt said that he doesn’t remember any of that and apologized. If I were Mitt, I wouldn’t have apologized because there’s nothing to apologize for. There’s just nothing.

“I know Mitt. It’s not his personality. I know a lot of personalities and you know you don’t change so much from the time you’re 18 to the time you’re 60. You really don’t change so much. You have a certain makeup . . . He’s not a harasser. He’s not a bully. He’s not one of these guys. He’s a high-quality guy. He said he didn’t remember it and therefore I wouldn’t have apologized.”

He adds: “If you’re going to look at that, on something that I don’t believe ever happened, you have to look into Barack Obama saying that he was heavy into drugs, heavy into alcohol, was a total disaster, was a horrible student. Then you have to say if he was a horrible student, how did he get into Columbia? How did he get into Harvard?

“Mitt is a smart guy with a great memory. He doesn’t remember it. That should be it. If you’re going to look into that, you certainly have to look into Obama’s drug use.

“I remember when George Bush said he took just a minor smoke, marijuana; this was like the biggest story. But with Obama, he said he was seriously into it and they don’t make a big deal out of it.

“If you’re going to look at Mitt Romney’s past, then you have to look at Obama’s past. But for some reason, the press doesn’t want to look at Obama’s past.”

But there are some in the press that are “pretty strongly against” Obama, Trump says.

“Drudge is terrific and I think they do an amazing job. You certainly couldn’t say they’re in his camp. Generally speaking Fox [is against him], although Bill O’Reilly I think is quite neutral. But you watch Sean Hannity and nobody would think Sean is exactly neutral.

“You can’t say all of it, but certainly the mainstream [is for Obama]. I know when I was thinking about running, reports were done about me that were so false and they knew they were false, and we told them and gave them evidence and they ran with them anyway.”

The Daily Caller is reporting that Trump might be giving a big speech, maybe even a keynote address, at the GOP Convention in Tampa in August.

But Trump, who toyed with launching a presidential campaign, says: “I love what I’m doing. I was thinking about running. I was doing phenomenally in the polls as you know, better than anybody, and I decided I really liked Romney, I liked what he said, I liked his attitude on OPEC and China and lots of other things.

“I’m not looking to do the speech. But I have agreed to do the keynote speech in North Carolina for the North Carolina Republican Party on June 1, and I look forward to doing that.

“I bought a massive, beautiful, magnificent development there about a month ago. It was formerly called The Pointe, now it’s called Trump National, and it’s a fantastic place, and I’m going to be in North Carolina and I have agreed to do that speech.”

North Carolina “is so important” as a battleground state, he adds.

But Trump concedes that if he was asked to come to the GOP convention, “I would certainly consider it. I think they have a lot of people but I would certainly consider it.

“Look, I really like Mitt. I think I’ve been a big help to Mitt. I think Mitt will be a great candidate. More importantly, I think he’ll be a great president.

“I think I’ve helped him a lot with four or five states that were marginal, very close. I helped in Florida, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin. A couple of other places, even Nevada where he won by substantially more the day I endorsed him.

“I’ve given him a lot of help and I really am very honored to have done it. He’s a good man. I think he’d be a good president.”

In his exclusive interview, Trump also:

  • Names several figures he’d like to see as Mitt Romney’s running mate.
  • Explores the potential impact of a Supreme Court decision striking down Obamacare.
  • Discusses the recent initial public offering by Facebook.
  • Points to potential benefits to the United States from the European financial crisis.

Biden says Bush administration ‘the problem’ during early Iran talks

Published May 08, 2012

FoxNews.com

Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday pinned the country’s rocky negotiations with Iran on the Bush administration, saying only after President Obama took office and made “good faith” efforts toward dealing with the rogue nation did the world realize Iran is the problem.

“By going the extra diplomatic mile, presenting Iran with a clear choice, we demonstrated to the region and the world that Iran is the problem, not the United States,” Biden said at the Rabbinical Assembly’s annual convention in Atlanta.

“When we took office, let me remind you, there was virtually no international pressure on Iran,” Biden continued. “We were the problem, we were diplomatically isolated in the world, in the region, in Europe. We were neither fully respected by our friends nor feared by our opponents. Today it is starkly, starkly different.”

The comments immediately drew rebuke from conservatives.

Biden said Obama’s efforts also have created world-wide support for the U.S.’s recent get-tough policies in the face of what appears to be Iran’s expanding nuclear program, including Obama’s executive orders punishing those who make financial deals with that country.

“That’s why China, that’s why Russia, that’s why Europe, that’s why the rest of the world have joined us in these sanctions, and the president deserves the credit,” the vice president said, painting with a broad brush what actually has been a rather contentious dialogue between the U.S. and those other countries.

Such Obama administration criticism of the president’s predecessor is not new, and the Obama re-election campaign has begun to look for ways to tout the president’s foreign policy.

Biden’s comment on the U.S. being diplomatically isolated during the Bush years was in reference to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. President G. W. Bush made the decision without United Nations’ approval but with the backing of Britain and, initially, the support of a majority of Americans, according to polls at the time.

GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney‘s campaign called Biden’s comments “reckless” and criticized the Obama administration for “all too often” trying to first blame America, apparently suggesting that Biden’s criticisms of Bush were really aimed at the country as a whole.

“Biden’s reckless statement today blaming America for – of all things – the progress of Iran’s nuclear weapons program, has reached a new low,” said Romney policy director Lanhee Chen. “The problem is not America. It is the ayatollahs who oppress their people.”

Matt Brooks, executive director of the Republican Jewish Coalition, said Biden comments were “outrageous.”

“Iran was the problem then and it is the problem now,” he said. “It’s foolishly misguided for the vice president to blame anyone or any country other than Iran.”

Biden also said Iran is not monolithic and bet that President Mahmoud Ahmadinejadwould be out of power within two years.

Michelle Obama Predicts ‘Election Could Come Down to Those Last Few Thousand Votes’

May 2, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – First lady Michelle Obama told supporters in the key battleground state of New Mexico on Tuesday that the 2012 presidential election could go down to the wire.

Polls have shown a tight race between President Barack Obama and his presumptive Republican opponent Mitt Romney, a former Massachusetts governor. A Gallup poll taken April 26-30 found the race tied at 46 percent, while a Rasmussen poll from April 29-May 1 found Obama had a three-point lead, 47 percent to 44 percent.

On Tuesday, Michelle Obama was speaking at a campaign event at the Los Poblanos Ranch in Albuquerque, N.M.. She encouraged supporters to make phone calls, knock on doors and register new voters.

“If you have any doubt about the difference that you will definitely make, I just want you to remember that, in the end, this election could come down to those last few thousand votes,” the first lady said. “It’s happened before. It could come down to those last few people we register. It could all come down to those last few people that we help get to the polls on November the 6th.”

She went on to say it could even mean registering one more person to vote.

“And I want you to think about — just for a minute — about what these kind of numbers mean when they’re spread out over an entire state,” she continued. “It might mean registering just one more person in your town. That’s how crucial this is. One more person might mean helping just one more person in your community get out and vote on Election Day.”

“So know that with every door you knock on, truly, with every call you make, with every conversation you have, you have to remember that this could be the one that makes the difference — truly, every interaction,” the first lady said. “You could be the one who inspires that person to make their voice heard this November.”

Lieberman Won’t Endorse Obama, GOP in ’12

Lieberman Won’t Endorse Obama, GOP in ’12

Former Democratic vice presidential candidate and U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman says he’s not endorsing anyone – Republican or Democrat – for president in November.

“I’m going to try to stay out of this one,” Lieberman told Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.” Lieberman, an independent from Connecticut who caucuses with Democrats, famously endorsed his friend Republican John McCain over Barack Obama in the 2008 election.

Wallace joked that that endorsement “didn’t work out so well the last time.”

“I’m not running for re-election,” Lieberman countered. “I’m enjoying not being involved in the nastiness of campaigning in America these days.”

Lieberman won’t even say if he would vote for Obama or likely Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

“This year, when it comes to the presidential election, I’m just going to do what most Americans do: Go in the voting booth on election day and in the privacy of the booth cast my vote,” Lieberman added. “This is a very important election. One thing I will say — it seems obvious from the polling that is going on the whole year — the American people are very unsettled; they are uneasy about the economy, about the government.”

“They have changed their mind a lot as this has gone on,” Lieberman added. “This is going to be a very close and unpredictable presidential election right down to Election Day.”
