Please no. I don't think we can take another 4 years of Presidential inactivity. Most of his "action" was in the first 6 months,the next 18 months...... nothing.

If he is re-elected how many of you think it will be from a rigged election? I don't think it outrageous to make a claim like that with all the new "electronic" voting booths ect.

Why am I not surprised that you are "surprised." I'm sure you are not that stupid but you wanted to make a thread title to throw off the fact that the Repukes are the Party of the rich and Wall Street by a long shot. All you have to do is listen to any financial channel for a little while.

Good job of pointing in the other direction though :thumb:

hey..us uber rich folks are for whoever can best lie to the rest of you sheep.

don't you get it? - we don't pay taxes...never will...demonize us all you want...have the oval office spout strong speeches about how they will raise our tax rates..fine...raise if from 52% to 75%...we have great pro accountants who will continue to find loop holes or just take our profits and reinvest them in things like lake homes that we use to host parties for our clients, or occassionally put an out of town exec in for an over night stay..you know..business reasons..then we'll take a tax break on that..and if it's attached to some acreage we'll get tax credits and payments from the govt to not plant soy beans and help with erosion concerns..like we'd plant freakin soy beans anyway... hah haa! but we'll threaten to if there's money in it from you guys.
not only will we not pay taxes, but we'll take grants and low interest rate notes out to help us build more businesses..under other LLC interests of course..and we'll open them up in cities and states that give us huge tax incentives to move there because they think we'll be bringing in more jobs for low end sheep like you who will pay taxes. and if you're thinking that we'll be paying our employer's tax portion..think again, we calculate that tax into our total budget and we simply don't pay you as much in because we know we've got to pay that tax...yes there is a min wage, but it's so stupidly low that we'd of course be willing to pay you more , but since our govt set the bar that low..well..who are we to argue...

I've been thinking about upgrading to a new larger yacht..so a hike in the tax rate gives me a good excuse to shelter some more of that revenue that you are so hungry for..course it means we'll have to have a hiring freeze again this year at the plants, cause I will have to pay for the boat rather than your paychecks and insurance.

yep... I'm likin this clown Obammy...he's doing just fine...easy to predict, excellent liar, and a great distraction for the general population..but then, most politicians are.
Vote for whoever/whomever you wish, and don't worry about us rich folk..we'll be just fine...:rolleyes:

So I wonder why the Banks and repubicans are fighting Obama tooth and nail to stop the new Consumer Protection Agency from helping Americans fight the crooks ripping them off on their credit cards and loans.

Truth is stranger than winger fiction.

I didn't say protection wasn't needed I said obama wasn't. I have lots of clues. It's obama that missed the boat. I could care less if he shaves his head and pronounces he's Buddhist. He's less than a dirt clod I have to shake off my boots; nothin but a traitor.
But yeah, me and politics get along real well. They have shown to be such good representations of what is right and wrong.
I'll try to be more receptive to the other side instead of being so negative. But how I despise liars. Just because he maybe aint lyin now is no reason to excuse past double standard about face back stabbings.
I should probably feel sorry for him. poor obama can't catch a break. breaks my heart
Just to reiterate. I will be more positive and see all things in a non-judgemental light. man that's hard when you know lies are like flies
Day one after I believed he would actually clean up, I saw that he was just another back stabbing liar. Everything he has done has been warped into less freedom and more police state, more war, more cover ups by murder, more "decrees". Spare me the BS. we are here to learn how to get along. Agreeing is an entirely different story. And I for one will never agree with him on anything ever.

Re:Consumer financial protection.... sounds smart to me to oppose it.

44 Republican U.S. Senators today sent a letter to President Obama stating that they will not confirm any nominee, regardless of party affiliation, to be the Director of the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) absent structural changes that will make the Bureau accountable to the American people. Under the Dodd-Frank financial regulation Act, the Director is given unfettered authority to regulate businesses that extend consumer credit. Although the Director will also have hundreds of millions of dollars of public money at his or her disposal, no checks and balances are provided on how it is spent. In light of these facts, the Senators sent today’s letter out of concern that such unchecked authority could be used for political purposes at the expense of access to credit, job creation, economic growth, and financial stability.

In the letter, the Senators call for three specific, common sense reforms to the Bureau’s structure:

* Replace the single Director with a board to oversee the Bureau. This would prevent a single person from dominating the Bureau and provide a critical check on the Bureau’s authority.
* Subject the Bureau to the Congressional appropriations process. This would provide oversight and accountability to the American people on how public money is spent.
* Establish a safety-and-soundness check for the prudential financial regulators, who oversee the safety and soundness of financial institutions. This would help ensure that excessive regulations do not needlessly cause bank failures.

President Obama signed the Dodd-Frank Act into law on July 21, 2010. Although Democrats heralded the Bureau as the centerpiece of their legislation, the President has yet to nominate a Director.

Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ken.), a lead signatory on the letter made the following statement: “The CFPB as created by the deeply-flawed Dodd-Frank Act is set to be one of the least accountable and most powerful agencies in Washington. Today’s letter delivers a commitment by 44 Republican Senators to fix the poorly-thought structure of this agency that will have unprecedented reach and control over individual consumer decisions—but an unprecedented lack of oversight and accountability. The reforms outlined are necessary before we will consider any nominee to head this agency.”

Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), Ranking Republican on the Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs and also a lead signatory on the letter, issued the following statement: “This about accountability. The Bureau, as currently structured, lacks any semblance of the checks and balances inherent in the Constitution. Everyone supports consumer protection, but we should never entrust a single person with this much power and public money. We are simply asking the President to support common sense reforms that provide the accountability absent in the current structure.”

Senator Jerry Moran, (R-Kan.), who has filed legislation that would enact reforms contained in the letter, made the following remarks: “Allowing a single unelected bureaucrat to define their own jurisdiction and regulate vast segments of our economy without accountability or restraint is a ‘reform’ that should be rejected. My common sense legislation brings a variety of perspectives to the Bureau and gives Congress the oversight authority required for such a powerful agency. We stand ready to work with the president to make certain the CFPB is both effective and accountable.”

Let me inform you folks of something. Republicans or Democrat, makes no difference. They are CAREER POLITICIANS. It's ALL About the Money. That's why Obama just set a new record for most money raised for re-election campaign. Yeah I see him sharing the wealth.....:rolleyes: Bet you no one gets a dime. Keep dreaming your socialist dreams, Or your hard core conservative dreams. They are milking you dry. Term limits are not good enough. Even if they serve only a single term, they get a nice pension and plenty of perks.:eek: THEY are the Welfare you complain about.

Actually at least half of them list themselves as 'businessmen'. They come from the executive offices of the largest corporations. Government to them is just another revenue stream to subsidize their corporations...while its 'free markets' for everyone else.
