OBAMA, BIDEN AND CAROLINE TELL AMERICA:
IT'S BUSH'S FAULT.
And that Catholics are clamoring for abortion rights. Because, Caroline says, she is the POPE. She is The One Catholics Have Been Waiting For.
THE COMPETITIVE INDEX RANKING FOR THE USA:
2008 - 1ST - Bush Leaves/Obama takes over.
2010 - 4TH - Obama continues to bail out his friends.
2012 - 7TH - Obama runs for re-election.
2011 - For the FIRST TIME in its history AMERICA lost its AAA credit rating.
Thanks Obama and the Democrats who have during the last four years proved their competence.
After all, it's BUSH'S FAULT that the USA was number 1 and that we had a credit rating of AAA.
And, it's to OBAMA's CREDIT that we are Number 7 today.
I'm slow, but I do get it. Eventually. Many Americans will never get it. Accordingly, they are slower than I. Which is pathetic, since I'm not the brightest bulb on the block.
What is important, REALLY important, is Sandra Fluke's $3000 condom habit for which you and I pay; and Romney's horses FOR which Romney pays.
That's what the Democrats after all, talk about to prove that Republicans are evil for denying funding for someone's sexual behavior that someone else - for example you and I - have to pay for. In other words, you are NOT PAYING YOUR FAIR SHARE for Sandra Fluke's condoms. Ask Sandra.
While you're at it, also ask Sandra why I am paying for her sexual pleasure without getting any of the benefits. Inquiring minds want to know.
It's just perspective, get it? And it seems, we conservatives don't have any.
BIDEN says: Fact check me!
Did I need the press to tell me that Biden misstated facts?
He said: Ryan would cause Medicare to go bankrupt by 2016.
Really. Ryan's plan ONLY affects people who are not yet on Medicare.
Since they draw no benefits, how could the plan bankrupt the program since no other changes are proposed for those already ON Medicare? But factually, Biden missed this one, Obama WITHDREW $716 billion right out of Medicare, THREE QUARTERS OF A TRILLION DOLLARS, without any plans to fund what's been taken out. All the while saying that Ryan has no plans. Does the reader have any idea how much money that is taken from an underfunded, supposedly TRUST fund?
The Democrats are correct however, that Ryan's plan also intended to take a similar amount out of Medicare as has been reported...but what the Democrats didn't tell you is that Ryan would have set aside the withdrawed funds into a TRUST FUND, and not mixed it into the general revenue. In other words, the difference is that Ryan would have SAVED it, and Obama has SPENT it.
And afterward he would have stabilized the program by restructuring and FUNDING it for the benefit of future retirees.
Obama has a better plan. No funding of Medicare.
In other words, Ryan would have PROTECTED and SAVED Medicare, not spent the money for other purposes - which is what Obama has actually done. Obama has already SPENT the MEDICARE money for fund Obamacare. Get it? The three quarters of a trillion dollars is GONE! For good.
That is the Medicare story, in a nutshell. It's not very complex to understand. The facts are there for anyone interested to find them, is not an blinded ideologue with obama stars in their eyes, or naive, and will do their own homework and research to find the facts, as opposed to Huff Po telling them what the facts should be.
When Biden spoke about jobs gains, he only spoke about the jobs gained AFTER the jobs that were lost during Obama's captainship. Biden didn't measure the jobs lost at all under his administration. So if he lost 2 million jobs and then gained 1 million, HE HAD STILL LOST 1 MILLION JOBS - and Biden only spoke about the 1 million gained. Which happens to be a blatant lie. Of every one person having gained a job in last week's jobs report, three out of rour stopped looking!
Biden measured only the part of the curve that went up on the right side of the chart, and at the through at the bottom, deleted the left part of the curve that went down on the left side.
Clinton said that NO PRESIDENT COULD HAVE TURNED AROUND THE ECONOMY IN FOUR YEARS.
NO PRESIDENT like Obama or Clinton, true.
BUT PRESIDENT REAGAN HAD, and Reagan turned the economy around in three years.
Using Clinton's NEW MATH, three years is a longer period than four.
And then Reagan launched the nation on a 25 year economic boom.
There was NO RECESSION between Reagan and Bush II. 87 doesn't count, there was no recession, just a stock market dive, short lived. How did Reagan do it? He cut taxes BIG TIME. He had a deficit? Yes he did. We were fighting the Cold War and Reagan won that one - no one will dispute that except the most blinded ideologue. By the way, for anyone arguing this point, Gorbachev and Thatcher, Reagan's counterparts at the time, confirmed the facts I had stated in their books.
Clinton was a good president. He cut capital gains taxes, he put the WORK back into Welfare, then called WORK-fare, and the welfare rolls plummeted, he eliminated some capital gains and estate taxes altogether making everyone in America wealthier - including Union workers who happen to own pension funds managed by Goldman- Sachs they march against today. He created friendly associations with business and hired ex-Reaganites (using REAGANOMICS) - in other words, to manage America's economy.
On July 12, 2012 Obama took the WORK out of WORKfare. Instead of a hand up, he has gone BACKWARD 20 years to give a HAND-out.
Clinton appreciated Reagan's "VOODOO economics, "used it freely, and loved hearing about TRICKLE DOWN from his economic team. Clinton was a Reaganite in many way AND THE BENEFITS TRICKLED DOWN TO ALL.
That, Fellow Americans, is just the history that Clinton crowed about at the Convention without identifying the source of the prosperity under his administration, knowing well that Obama is doing exactly the opposite of what Clinton has done.
FACTCHEKING from the Net:
Biden and Obama made other statements in their convention speeches on such topics as unemployment and Medicare that fact-checkers said also appear to be inaccurate or at least misleading.
Among the questionable remarks were Biden's argument that "after the worst job loss since the Great Depression we created 4.5 million private sector jobs in the past 29 months" – a frequent response by the Obama campaign when questioned about the slow economic recovery.
The Associated Press and others point out that statement is misleading because it counts jobs from the recession's lowest point to where employment began to grow again – excluding jobs lost earlier in Obama's term and masking that overall unemployment has increased over that period.
"Overall, roughly 7.5 million jobs were lost during the recession that began in December 2007 and ended officially in June 2009," according to the wire service.
The Associated Press also points out that Obama said in his speech that he wants to use money saved by ending the wars to build highways, schools and bridges.
However, the wars were largely financed by borrowing "so there is no ready pile of cash to be diverted to anything else," the wire service writes.
The group FactCheck.org listed eight instances in which either Biden or Obama "spun" facts during their speeches Thursday night in Charlotte, N.C.
The group point out that Obama boasted that "independent experts" found his economic plan would cut the deficit by $4 trillion over 10 years. However, one such analyst called a key element of the plan a ‘gimmick,’ the group said.
Other examples include the president saying U.S. auto makers are back on top of the world.
"Nope," writes FactCheck, pointing out that General Motors has slipped back to No. 2 and is headed for third place in global sales this year behind Toyota and Volkswagen.
The group said Biden misquotedwhen he said the GOP presidential nominee "believes it's OK to raise taxes on middle classes by $2,000."
Romney in fact promises to lower middle-class taxes, FactCheck points out.
Still, Obama and Biden were not alone, fact-checkers also dissected Romney and running mate Rep. Paul Ryan’ convention speeches a week earlier in Tampa, Fla.
FactCheck pointed out Medicare’s chief actuary says the Ryan plan "substantially improves" the system's finances.
As I had stated, and proved in the previous, almost all of the Clinton, Obama and Biden statements, as well as the other's at the convention aimed at the True Believers with the glassy and tearful eyes and dullard brains, were lies.
They are lies that only they dullard, dimwitted and the unthinking, the religiously-motivated ideologue, the faithful can believe in. Yeah, FORWARD. Right. Progressivism is a SECULAR RELIGION.
The secularism of shines through. Catholicism REJECTS abortion. Period. The church represents Catholics, Caroline Kennedy represents progressivism, and JFK, her dad, never supported abortion. HERE IS PROOF:
If you're a Catholic and you vote for Obama, than your Pope is Caroline Kennedy, Catholicism's First Woman Pope.
Progressivism is based in myths, rejecting facts, history, truth, tradition, conventional wisdom and human nature. That is the nature of progressivism.
It is the ideology of men of 150 years ago wearing wire rimmed glasses, top hats and walking canes who are shouting to their descendants across time 150 years into the future: FORWARD! - unaware that their programs going forward resulted in the deaths of 300 million human beings and counting. These victims of FORWARD went FORWARD to their resting place. Prematurely. Thanks to Progressivism, a social movement that will return us BACKWARD to a world of 150 years ago.
PROGRESSIVISM is a TIME MACHINE. It is a bus stop from with the buses MoveOn.org FORWARD from stop to stop until they return BACKWARD fifteen stops BEHIND you.
Remember to THINK PROGRESS!

Should I rest my case now or later?
