Obama’s childish, disrespectful behavior during his 2012 presidential re-election campaign has now taken a turn for the worse. While on the campaign trail, he used a barnyard expletive, to describe his Republican opponent in an interview to be published Friday in Rolling Stone.
By now most have heard that attorney Gloria Allred is asking a Massachusetts court to unseal documents in a 1991 divorce case involving testimony of GOP candidate Mitt Romney. On October 7, in an interview with Fox News, Allred said that she had “just had a few words with the president” backstage that night at the Los Angeles gala, entitled “30 Days to Victory,” at the Nokia Theatre.
Even though California is one of the most taxed states in the nation, Gov Jerry Brown says Californians will have to pay even more. With a $16 billion deficit, Brown is pushing a ballot measure next month known as Prop 30 that would increase taxes by up to 30 percent on those earning more than $300,000. Brown claims that unless voters pass the measure, dubbed the “millionaires tax,” he’ll cut the school year by three weeks to save money.
Everyday the story changes from the Administration as to what really happened when terrorists attacked our embassy in Libya. This has created a lot of criticism, coming from Republicans. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said over the weekend that recent disclosures by intelligence officials that once again revise the narrative on what happened during the deadly attack last month in Libya suggest an “orchestrated defense of the administration.”
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is upping his criticism of President Barack Obama’s plans for a second term, accusing the Democrat of failing to tell Americans what he would do with four more years. The Obama campaign is aggressively disputing the notion, claiming it is Romney who hasn’t provided specific details to voters.
The US government spent $5.6 million in 2011 to preserve historical sites, artifacts, and traditional arts in foreign countries. Dispensed under the auspices of the U.S. Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation, which was created in 2000, Fund supports a wide range of projects to preserve cultural heritage, such as the restoration of historic buildings, assessment and conservation of museum collections, archaeological site preservation, documentation of vanishing traditional craft techniques, improved storage conditions for archives and manuscripts, and documentation of indigenous languages, according to the State Department.
In a report published earlier this week, some $4.5 billion has been inappropriately applied to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), commonly known as food stamps, including benefits that were administered to 2,000 dead people in New York and Massachusetts.
So now we have Bill Clinton trying to shield Obama from more bad publicity over his failed policies. And former President Clinton is also blaming Republicans, over the fact that unemployment remains high because they are putting stumbling blocks in the way for political gain.
Southeastern Ohio coal miners are blasting an ad from President Obama that claims they were forced to “be props in (Mitt) Romney’s commercial.” On August 15, Romney appeared at an event in Belmont County surrounded by 500 coal miners, and claimed that unnecessary regulation by the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency amounts to a “war on coal,” and has helped put thousands of miners’ jobs in jeopardy.
Ever since Obama came into office, we’ve been hearing so many cries of discrimination, as he plays the race card, but what exactly is discrimination? Discrimination deals with if one is treated equally, areas such as mortgages, voter identification and immigration enforcement, as examples. Both presidential candidates differ over how to use laws that guarantee equality and how far the Justice Department’s civil rights division, which exerts strong influence on issues of race and ethnicity, should go to ensure all Americans are treated fairly.
