This is what our grandparents did to save the world. All we have to do is vote.
Remember when the Obama campaign started calling Charlotte’s Bank of American Stadium “Panther Stadium” to distance itself from the Wall Street fatcats representing the 1%? It seems their hypocrisy knows no bounds.
Obama For America took out a $15 million loan from Bank of America last month, according to the campaign’s October monthly FEC report. The loan was incurred on September 4 and is due November 14, eight days after the election. OFA received an interest rate of 2.5% plus the current Libor rate.
Warren Buffett, Obama donor and namesake of the infamous “Buffett Rule,” invested $5 billion in Bank of America last year in an effort to help the ailing financial institution. Last month, two weeks after OFA took out the loan, Bank of America announced a plan that would lay off 16,000 workers by the end of the year. (LINK)
I wonder if those laid off workers will be voting for The One?
HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated the Hatch Act on February 25th. Since she was found in violation last week, not one question – not one – has been asked of Sebelius about the incident, which was deemed founded by the ethics office. I’m shocked.
A review of transcripts by The Daily Caller indicate that no questions have been asked by the reporters who cover the president about Sebelius during official White House briefings or gaggles since Sept. 12, when the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said in a report that the cabinet secretary violated the Hatch Act earlier this year.
It’s still up to President Obama whether Sebelius should keep her job or face some sort of punishment after being found in violation of the Hatch Act.
The ethics office said Sebelius violated the law on Feb. 25 while delivering a speech to Human Rights Campaign while serving in her official capacity as cabinet secretary. In her speech, she called for Obama’s re-election, and the election of the Democratic candidate for governor in North Carolina. The Hatch Act prohibits certain civil servants in the federal government from engaging in political activity on the job. (LINK)
Any chance Obama will punish Sebelius for breaking federal law? No, I didn’t think so.
It’s the soup de jour of the Obama administration. Consider the remarks he yesterday at a Chicago fundraiser:
“Too many folks still don’t have a sense that tomorrow will be better than today. And so, the question in this election is which way do we go?” President Obama asked at a fundraiser in Chicago on Sunday.
“Do we go forward towards a new vision of an America in which prosperity is shared?” Obama asked. “Or do we go backward to the same policies that got us in the mess in the first place?” (LINK)
Shared prosperity? Is he on crack? The man has no idea what America is all about.
The fact that this man refuses to acknowledge the facts – that his policies got us into this mess – is inexcusable. Can you imagine what this country would look like after another four years of Barack Obama?
Joe Biden speaking at this years IAFF convention. His entire speech patronizes and insults the intelligence of many rank and file conservative firefighters. Particularly galling is his use of the memory of our fallen brothers to score political points. Apparently Vice President of the United States, Joseph Biden is completely ignorant of the fact the DEMOCRAT MAYOR MICHAEL NUTTER has tried to break the firefighters union and stopped our contract from being implemented for THREE YEARS. Either that or he just doesn’t give a shit. More firefighters have lost their jobs under Obama and Biden than any other administration in history.
Ironic that democrats roundly blistered Anne Romney isn’t it? It’s also pretty clear that Ms. Akbar didn’t build this horse ranch by herself…
I guess none of us should be surprised.
City Council passed a $3.6 billion budget Thursday, officially delaying Mayor Nutter’s planned property-assessment reform for at least another year, while nonetheless raising property taxes 3.6 percent. The hike – the third property-tax increase in three years – would raise $20 million for the nearly insolvent School District of Philadelphia.
Coupled with $20 million from an increase in the use and occupancy tax on businesses, which Council approved last week, the district would receive $40 million in new money from the city in the next fiscal year.
That falls short of Mayor Nutter’s goal of raising $94 million for a district already facing a $218 million deficit. (LINK)
The school district’s financial crisis is entirely of Nutter’s own doing. This man gave a $1 million bailout to former school superintendent Arlene Ackerman, and now he wants us to foot the bill. I guess he never considered collecting the millions in unpaid taxes from the thousands of his deadbeat Democrat electorate. That would be silly.
