Then Obama can get on the back of the bus
You know damn well what the history of this phrase means. You can deny you are a racist all you want...but your words speak differently.
Don't try to play it off like it is a play on words with Obama saying the Republicans can sit in the back...because he was talking about a car...you
are talking about a bus. Not once in any speech did Obama say to "sit in the back of the bus"...that is just flat out lying. There is a huge
historical difference...blacks were never told to sit in the back of a car...they were told to sit on the back of the bus.
It's alright though...the more racist anti-Obama people get...the better it is for Obama.
Every Presidential race in this country is going to be a "Tough Race"...that is just the way it is. But I do think Obama has a very good chance of
His average approval rating right now is a +9 ( www.realclearpolitics.com...
The polls agains all the potential GOP candidate has him winning at this point (
And despite the propaganda...Obama has not increased taxes and the Economy is getting better with him in charge.
•The Great Recession, which began in 2007, ended in June 2009, just five months after Obama was sworn into office.
•Since June 2009, real Gross Domestic Product has grown in every quarter, at an average annual rate of 2.8%. In the preceding eight years, from 2000
to 2008 (4th quarter to 4th quarter), average growth was only 1.7% per year. Real GDP is now at an all-time high.
•Over the last 14 months, over two million private sector jobs were added to the economy. Over that same period, over 300,000 government jobs were
•The stock market is up over 60% since Obama was inaugurated. It is now at levels not seen since June 2008, or before Bush bailed out Fannie and
Freddie and gave us TARP.
•There has been no tax increase since Obama entered office. In fact, he cut taxes.
•The tax rates enacted under President Bush were extended. We are now paying at the same tax rates we were in 2007 and 2008, if not less.
•The stimulus was about one third tax cuts and tax credits.
•As part of the legislation extending the Bush tax rates, Obama added billions more in tax cuts and credits.
•A big reason that the federal deficit is so large is that federal receipts are 4.1% of GDP lower in 2011 than in 2007. (OMB Table 1.2)
The Health Care Reform will go to the SCOTUS...and I am confident that it will be upheld...which will be a huge blow to whichever GOP candidate gets
So if they can't knock him on taxes, and not on the economy, and not on the healthcare reform being unconstitutional, and the birthers have been made
to look foolish, and he is the president that killed Osama Bin Laden.....WHAT exactly are they going to knock him on???
Give me a list of things that the GOP candidates can use to effectively go against Obama...details please.
