All the proof you libtards need to see is all the jobs bills that were passed right after the 2010 republican victories in the house.

PreMortem: During a debate, Obama said he advocated increasing the capital gains tax even when told lower rates produce more revenues by encouraging investments in the economy.

This has no basis in historical fact, or the current environment.


I told him that Gangnam Style was an elaborate Korean rain dance, but he didn't listen to that either. Who's sitting under a yard of water now, huh?

I was going to invest this $1000 at 10%, but because I might net $70 per year instead of $80 per year after taxes, I have decided to leave it in my mattress. This is what makes me a smart investor.

Thanks a lot, Fartbama.

Il Douchey: During the 2008 campaign, voters heard Obama promise to end the bitter partisan and cynical politics of Washington. Looks like that was one campaign promise where the president couldn't be trusted to deliver.


Yes, that was one promise he failed to keep. There are others as well...

Close Gitmo
Cut the deficit in half
Earmark reform
Keep unemployment below 7%
Pass cap and trade
Introduce comprehensive immigration reform
Post all pending legislation online for five days
No Super pac money
Sign the Freedom of Choice Act
End Bush tax cuts
No jobs for lobbyists
Televise healthcare debates on C-Span
Ease racial tensions in America 

/He could have accomplished most of these promises without any GOP assistance


Well since most of these cannot be done by executive decree, um... you're wrong. You HAVE to have Congress to get the work done. Both halves. And what the fark is ease racial tensions in america? When did he say he would do that? how the hell do you measure something like that?

You're nothing but a useless troll. Why don't you add something to the conversation instead of attention whoring yourself all over the place...

\dammit now i am pissed

Close Gitmo - Requires Congressional assistance (who controls House?)
Cut the deficit in half - Requires Congressional assistance (who controls House?)
Earmark reform - Requires Congressional assistance (who controls House?)
Keep unemployment below 7% - When he got into office it was already 7.8% and getting rapidly worse - he can't keep unemployment below 7% when it's already below 7% - not a failed promise, an impossible task - if he promised it in 2008 before the economy tanked under Bush, guess what, it doesn't count.
Pass cap and trade - Requires Congressional assistance (who controls House?)
Introduce comprehensive immigration reform
Post all pending legislation online for five days - Requires Congressional assistance (who controls House?)
No Super pac money - Supreme Court decision (who controls SCOTUS?)
Sign the Freedom of Choice Act - Requires Congressional assistance (who controls House?)
End Bush tax cuts - Didn't cut taxes due to recession his first two years - every economist on earth agreed with extending tax cuts at the time. After that, requires Congressional assistance (who controls House?)
No jobs for lobbyists - Requires Congressional assistance (who controls House?)
Televise healthcare debates on C-Span - I have no idea what is required for this, but the healthcare arguments in Congress were in fact televised.
Ease racial tensions in America - LOL this is a joke right? How do you even f*cking measure this? 

Anyone with a clue about how Congress operated from 2009-2010, with a lack of a clear majority for much of this time and pending healthcare legislation, knows that your whole argument is full of sh*t.

The first two years, Obama passed a TON of legislation. The failed promises were mostly lower priority items he couldn't get done the second half of his term due to GOP obstructionism.

You are an idiot for even bringing this up.

Stupid Obama, why does he intentionally limit himself to the specific powers delegated to the President by the Constitution. He should just declare himself absolute monarch and change everything by royal decree.

Funny how we place the blame on the guy who tried to overcome obstructionism instead of the ones creating the obstructions.

GOP: This is what we want. These are our ideas.

Obama: OK. Here. We can do that.

GOP: Obama not cooperating!!!
