Foreign Policy-- after the European tour and apology tour, crap is going down all over--again, not his fault, it is some obscure guy in CA doing a youtube video some months ago (yeah, they will buy that). Especially, if we take the guy in at 1:30 in the morning and make him look like a criminal. (yeah, they will buy that), And especially, if we say it, with help from our media outlets, over and over, nobody will recognize that we are just killing free speech. (yeah, they will buy that)

Nosedive?

Mitt Romney said Barack Obama began his presidency with an apology tour

Posted Image

In his speech accepting the Republican nomination for president, Mitt Romney repeated a charge he’s made before: that Obama has traveled the world apologizing for America.


Romney said Obama began his presidency "with an apology tour."

But a review of Obama’s foreign travels and remarks during his early presidency showed no evidence to support such a blunt and disparaging claim. (In later years, we found two formal apologies, but they were not at the start of his presidency and not part of a tour.)

While Obama's speeches contained some criticisms of past U.S. actions, he typically combined those passages with praise for the United States and its ideals, and he frequently mentioned how other countries had erred as well. We found not a single, full-throated apology in the bunch.

Calling those remarks "an apology tour" is a ridiculous charge. So we rate his statement Pants on Fire.

So only 53% of Americans contribute to the country while other 47% take away from the country. No wonder our economy in deep poo... It's almost 1:1 ratio...

When you rob Peter to pay Paul, you can always count on Paul's vote.

Looks like Obama is wrapping up his usual strongholds in Texas and the deep south thanks to the overwhelming support of all the non-federal-income-taxed people

The 10% bracket bush added for the lowest income earners really ratcheted up that non-payer list.

The south having a large percentage of these makes sense given the lower cost of living (and therefore lower wages) and poorer rural areas.

I once again double dog dare any politician to revoke that 10% bracket.

Hey if you want to blame someone for the 48% number, blame Milton Friedman, who came up with the idea of the Earned Income Tax Credit. Or blame old people for collecting social security.

Or you can blame obama for passing all those policies which did nothing to change the number of people not paying
