Another devastating Romney ad exposes how Obama borrowed money from China, then wasted it Oct. 5, 2012 7:59 am by The Right Scoop • 84 Comments FacebookTwitterEmail report this ad I love this ad and it may be the most effective 30 second ad I’ve seen on Obama’s debt and deficits.

Does anyone else find it interesting (and maybe desparate) that Obama is trying to blaim Romney with being soft or cozy with China? Obama is stomping on the pipeline so who benefits? China. He’s selling our debt… to who? China. He’s borrowing 43 cents on the dollar from who? China. And Romney is the devil? These truths need to keep coming out and ring loud and clear. The left and LSM are trying too hard to cover all of these things up, spin them, and lie about them. But ironically, figuratively and literally, the truth will set us free. conservative58 And lest we forget this piece of insight from Obama: ‘Obama Says China’s Infrastructure is Better Suited Than U.S.’ Sober_Thinking Great reminder… thanks for posting this. Jim Jones Have you ever been to China? PuritanD71 Typical democratic practice of projecting their own doing onto the other. They had seemed to have perfected the blame game. However, the “new media” and this last debate has been quite revealing. hbnolikeee You mean like calling Republicans racist while it was the Democratic Party that created the KKK (see Byrd for recent membership) and voted against Civil Rights? Patty Roe and fought the anti-lynching bills for years in congress clear up into the 1930s! hbnolikeee And they’re keeping black people as pods for votes with no need to get a good education, work and aspire to be more than mediocre. That’s the real crime here and shame that so very many black people have been fooled by the BlingMeister in Chief. Jim Jones hmm-your argument does not pass the “smell like BS test” K-Bob It’s the racism on your upper lip. Don’t worry folks, this racist troll has been sprayed. sjmom Something I have noticed throughout my life is people will blame someone else for what they themselves do. Don’t know if it soothes their conscience to accuse another of their own behavior but I have seen it many times. Nukeman60 It’s called psychological projection. I think it’s in the Democrat platform, if you look hard enough. It most certainly is an Alinski rule. Wolfie NObama certainly needs a refresher course on his Alinsky rules. He broke rule 11 badly in the debate: RULE 11: “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.” Never let the enemy score points because you’re caught without a solution to the problem. (Old saw: If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem. Activist organizations have an agenda, and their strategy is to hold a place at the table, to be given a forum to wield their power. So, they have to have a compromise solution.) Nukeman60 Heh, I have a copy of Rules for Radicals next to me right here at the computer. You make a good point. However, I think Obama broke more than just rule #11 of Saul’s ugly little book. He broke his entire campaign approach and is now scrambling to repair and recover. I believe the parts are in the mail and won’t arrive in time for the election. 🙂 Wolfie God bless the post office! 🙂 Nukeman60 BTW, I also have copies of ‘The Little Blue Book‘ by George Lakoff (Liberal slant), ‘Rules for Radicals Defeated‘ by Jeff Hedgpeth (Conservative slant), ‘The Federalist Papers‘ (and analysis), ‘The Anti-Federalist Papers‘ (dissenting opinions, with the Constitutional Convention and debates), ‘The Art of War‘ by Sun Tzu (a very good read), ‘Common Sense‘ by Glenn Beck, which also includes ‘Common Sense‘ by Thomas Paine, three copies of ‘The Constitution of the United States‘ (with insights), and two copies of ‘The Declaration of Independence‘ (also with insights). Makes for a lot of reading, but very worthwhile. BTW, most importantly, they are all protected by my FNX-9mm handgun, with 17+1 mag. Valuable books to me. 🙂 Wolfie A real nice collection you have to hand there! I have a few of those myself, but not all. What’s the “little blue book”? I could google it I suppose and pretend I knew all along, but honesty is the best policy. 🙂 Nukeman60 George Lakoff is a liberal think-tank kind of guy, who teaches how to think and talk like a good little Democrat. There are some interesting videos of his lectures, if you google his name. Hard to watch, because he’s so liberal and full of it, but very good lessons learned, much like Rules for Radicals. Lakoff attempts to teach the liberals the language of winning arguments, therefore he’s a must read to my way of thinking, in order to counter that. Wolfie Thanks for that, I’ll google him later today or when I get a chance as I have to go soon. ebud1949 Nice library but a better pick in what you protect it with…….. Wolfie What would you suggest? Nukeman60 My next purchase is a 1911 .45 cal. Jim Jones You are a well read, well armed racist homophobe. Your parents and favorite Starbucks must be proud K-Bob Hey, normal-o-phobe. Beat it. Take your Jew hatred back to liberal-land. Nukeman60 Heh, I was wondering how reading the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence made me a racist homophobe. But there’s no doubt Starbucks would swing me in the wrong direction, lol. K-Bob Starbucks is as liberal as they come, but it’s also run by a wealthy Jewish family. That’s why the troll dropped that in there. I swear it seems like those on the left who yell, “Raaaaacism!” the loudest are also the ones who seem to hate Jews the most. Nukeman60 Ahhh, so that’s what he was referring to. You know, as a well-read, well-armed racist homophobe, I should have known that. 🙂 librtifirst Republicans lead the charge on trade agreements, and Clinton followed up by handing China our technology. Its been two or three decades in the making. If we don’t start recognizing that there is much more to this than one presidency, we will never see real solutions. Obama represents globalization on meth, but he is just continuing what others worked to achieve for many years. We need to let these politicians know that we are on to them, and we will not forget the big picture due to short term political goals. Both parties need to feel like they are losing their party based strong holds on American politics, and the citizens need to start leading the charge on policy. That is a lot to ask, I know. Sober_Thinking Yeah, you’re absolutely right. We have some tough years ahead. smmy33 I hope people are on donating to the Romney campaign , because Obama is out raising ( foreigne money) and from all the billions he used from the Stimuls to give to his cronies and out spending Romney 2 to 1 . What gets me is so many conservatives know that Obama second term would be a disaster , put if you aren’t donating or how will Romney win… Obama has the media in his pocket, is out spending Romney 2 to 1 in battleground states, Obama has incumbacy so he can doctor the unempyment numbers to benefit him he doesn’t have to pay for flying & Sercuity which costs millions, all these rally and running around funding all on the tax payor dime These guys are the dirtiest people to run a campaign unless we fight back by more then just bitching on the web.. They we steal this country. conservative58 ObamaCare, ObamaPhone, ObamaDebt………. ObamaWASTE!!!!!! Orangeone And ObamaWaist (Moochier’s) Kordane And Romney won’t do any different, because he wont do anything to resolve the biggest debt problems (social security, medicare, medicaid). He’ll have to borrow money from the Chinese Communists, and it’ll just get wasted by being doled out to people living off entitlements. The bright side that we can look forward to is that this massive ponzi scheme will come crashing down on its own, and thus do the job of abolishing entitlements for us. There won’t be an easy ‘phasing out’ of those entitlement programs (as Conservatives and Libertarians advocate), no no – They’ll just END one day. Gone. Kaput. Bye bye statism. wodiej Eeyore. sDee Romney has to do something different and I am quite sure he will. I have not been able to find the details on his website because even though he has told us the strategy for closing the “jaws of death” (essentially, to grow the economy). It is hard to see how we close the gap with out major continued borrowing or dramatic cuts to the size of government, until that happens. Jaws of Death http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-JUM1zdGzx6Q/T4Pt80iwIVI/AAAAAAABf10/bcC9XtM_mv8/s1600/jaws%2Bof%2Bfinancial%2Bdeath.jpg Also we should separate true entitlements like foodstamps, cellphones, housing, daycare, scholarships, medicaid waivers etc, from pay-in “insurance” programs based on raided trust funds like social security. There is a model for phasing out the later, as many corporations have done with annuities and retirement insurance programs. The former just need to cut asap. Nukeman60 ‘Also we should separate true entitlements like foodstamps, cellphones, housing, daycare, scholarships, medicaid, waivers etc, from pay-in “insurance” programs based on raided trust funds like social security and Medicare‘ – sDee You make a very good point here. The former group are handouts, while the latter group has been paid for, by us, our entire lives. If they hadn’t been raided by the politicians for their own purposes, Social Security and Medicare would be solvent today. Senior citizens, like myself, have paid into these programs for 50+ years, thinking that it was going to be there when we retired. If I had used what the government took from me for these two programs over the last 50 years and invested it with a moderate 3% interest rate per year, I would be rich today. Instead, there is nothing there for me, while the politicians continue to rob these programs blind and leave nothing but fake IOUs in their wake. That is downright criminal, by both parties. sDee Well put. By letting the very same politicians lump them together for a “solution”, allows them to paper over their crimes. Jim Jones So you are getting nothing? No social security payments, no medicare benefits? That is terrible Nukeman60 No, I do not collect Social Security (I live on my pension and IRA) and I don’t use Medicare (I have my own insurance). But thanks for asking, as much as you seemed to miss the point. Must not have been explained in the White House talking points memo. Kordane The former entitlements are the same as the latter so-called “pay in; insurance programs” because the simple fact is that those programs are BANKRUPT. There is NO trust fund for any of it. There is just a bunch of IOUs. Almost all money that funds those programs comes out of taxes. Social security? It is a direct wealth transfer from young to old. Medicare? It is a direct wealth transfer from young/healthy people to old/unhealthy people. Medicaid? It is a direct wealth transfer from people with income/wealth to people with no income/wealth. Not to mention that they’re funded by a whole heck of borrowed (and printed) money. No, there is no separation between entitlements like foodstamps, cell phones, housing, etc… and social security, medicare, medicaid – They’re ALL funded by wealth redistribution, borrowed money and printed money. Insurance? It was a total con from the start, and The People have been gullible idiots for believing it. Jim Jones Do you get any kind of tax deductions? Mortgage deduction, child care credit, earned income credit? education payment deduction. Please give us that money back as you surely do not want to be part of the 47% Nukeman60 ‘Please give us that money back …‘ – jj Typical liberal mistake. It was our money to begin with. The government took it and people try to get their money back from the government. In spite of what Obama tells you about the evil rich, it’s not the government’s money and hence you are just given your little stipend to survive. Wolfie Why stir discord about Romney at this time? Aren’t we all on the same side, rallying behind the same flags? Or are some wolves in sheep clothing? Kordane RINOs are not on the same side as Conservatives or Libertarians. RINOs need to be exposed and attacked for advocating statism. In other words, Conservatives and Libertarians need to “hold their feet to the fire” – This isn’t something we should only do when/if Romney becomes president – This is something we need to be doing right NOW, and keep doing it constantly. Join me (don’t fight me) in holding their feet to the fire. Nukeman60 When I’m in my car and the breaks fail, sending me careening toward the ditch, I don’t stop to think that I’d better change the headlight that just burned out. I think about saving my life, and tomorrow I can change that headlight. November 7th, 2008 was the day we should have thought about what you’re saying. We didn’t and now we have this election between Obama and Romney. November 7th, 2012 is the day that we should address your (and our) concerns about the RINOs. We aren’t fighting you. We just know we must stop from hitting that ditch before we change the headlight. Wolfie Well said. I wish I’d wrote that! 🙂 Kordane I’m not going to sell my soul to statism by letting these RINOs think they have a mandate to implement RINO policies because nobody really stood up to them in the run up to the election. I know, I just know that they’re already strategizing how to limit the ability of Conservatives and Libertarians to hold their feet to the fire once in power (just like Boehner and company did). What we went through with Boehner should have taught us to be tough and start holding their feet to the fire early. We should start right now, because otherwise we will become complacent and the RINOs will become bolder. I honestly don’t see any harm in it. We’re just making sure that they aren’t trying to drive that car off the cliff; that they aren’t drunk (with statism) at the wheel. Nukeman60 We are doing that. The Congressional races are right in step to accomplish our ’12 goals and set us up for ’14 and ’16. The RINOs see this and are afraid, very afraid. Allowing the election to go to Obama does not accomplish any goals, except to destroy our great nation. It’s much like cutting up your paycheck because you don’t like the amount of taxes taken out of it. Now that will fix them, won’t it. Kordane Criticizing Romney for holding statist views, as opposed to Conservative/Libertarian views, is NOT letting Obama win. You can criticize him in this manner (ie. hold his feet to the fire) AND help him win against Obama. I don’t see why we should let the RINOs walk all over us until election day. We need to keep those bastards in line, otherwise they’ll stray from the right and true course, and instead take the party down the path of statism. I don’t know what goals you’re on about btw. Nukeman60 ‘I don’t know what goals you’re on about btw‘ – k That’s obvious. Wolfie You’re putting the cart before the horse. First we need to win the election. NObama is a NO GO! Romney winning is step 1! Then we ensure watch him… And hold his feet to the fire if need be! What’s wrong with this? Kordane I guarantee you that the RINOs are strategizing right now to sabotage any attempt to hold their feet to the fire. They did it with Boehner (and company), and they’ll do it again with Romney. Wolfie I get your concerned about that. But first we win the election. or all is lost. Wolfie Nukeman60’s reply said everything I wanted to say only better. Jim Jones Define “entitlements” Military members and retirees (check), government employees and retirees (check), SS recipients (who paid into the program for life) (check), Medicare recipients (who paid into the program for life) (check) and people receiving unemployment and food benefits (the same people Obama and Romney claim they want to help and they look a lot like your neighbors (check) This argument is very silly. Kordane What is your actual argument? Patriot077 It is a good ad but I wish they had taken it one step further to state some of the biggest wastes. Maybe that will be in a sequel. conservocop It is so abundately clear now that the country will not survive 4 more years of Obama’s economic policies. wodiej another good ad. Libertyship46 Just proves the point that if we do NOT get rid of Obama in November, we’re going to end up like Greece very, very, soon, possibly well before 2016. I’m wondering if the majority of Americans really understand how dangerous this situation is? We’ll find out on November 6. StrangernFiction Maybe this is why Barky didn’t seem to care much the other night: http://www.cnbc.com/id/49299718 sDee or vice-versa http://www.businessinsider.com/jack-welch-obama-jobs-report-numbers-romney-2012-10 JACK WELCH: Obama Is Manipulating The Jobs Numbers Because His Debate Performance Was Awful Nukeman60 We need 150,000 per month just to keep up with population growth (this month was 115,000). Eight months ago, we figured Obama needed to drop the unemployment rate by 0.1% per month to get to 7.5% by election time. That didn’t work for Obama, so the last couple of months, it’s dropped 0.3% per month, even though job growth hasn’t matched pop. growth. We have one more report before the election. It looks liks the first week of November will give us 7.5% (where Obama wanted to be by the election, to claim success and win the election), without ever growing the employment ranks. What a farce this has become. Wolfie Astute observation Nukeman60! Wisewoman2 I told my sister, the one in Chicago that the unemployment number would be manipulated to be less than what it was on Obama’s inauguration date. They waited as long as they could then Bingo! A telephone job survey of 50,000 households out of over 60 million household workers magically produced an additional 800,000 jobs for July and another over 800,000 for August whether part time (could be 10 hrs a week) or full time and an updated July and August jobs numbers (additional 40,000 and 20,000 added) magically came us this 7.8% unemployment rate. You see this is why I despise this man to the fullest. He is willing to destroy the black race and the country in order to win. 12grace Pray to G-d to restore us and return America’s blessing. .”America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: Its patriotism, its morality and its spiritual life.

A must see. http://www.itbn.org/index/detail/lib/Networks/sublib/TBN/ec/83ODIzNjpXVo6f8EWa5dj2c3uIurZseB Look at how many of these goals have been accomplished. The Communist Takeover Of America – 45 Declared Goals http://rense.com/general32/americ.htm From Greg Swank 12-4-2 You are about to read a list of 45 goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963. As you read this, 39 years later, you should be shocked by the events that have played themselves out. I first ran across this list 3 years ago but was unable to attain a copy and it has bothered me ever since. Recently, Jeff Rense posted it on his site and I would like to thank him for doing so. http://www.rense.com Communist Goals (1963) Congressional Record–Appendix, pp. A34-A35 January 10, 1963 Current Communist Goals EXTENSION OF REMARKS OF HON. A. S. HERLONG, JR. OF FLORIDA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Thursday, January 10, 1963 . Mr. HERLONG. Mr. Speaker, Mrs. Patricia Nordman of De Land, Fla., is an ardent and articulate opponent of communism, and until recently published the De Land Courier, which she dedicated to the purpose of alerting the public to the dangers of communism in America. At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen: [From “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen] 1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war. 2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war. 3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength. 4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war. 5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites. 6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination. 7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N. 8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev’s promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N. 9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress. 10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N. 11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.) 12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party. 13. Do away with all loyalty oaths. 14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office. 15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States. 16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights. 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks. 18. Gain control of all student newspapers. 19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack. 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions. 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures. 22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to “eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms.” 23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. “Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.” 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press. 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV. 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.” 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a “religious crutch.” 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state.” 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis. 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the “common man.” 31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the “big picture.” Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over. 32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture–education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc. 33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus. 34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities. 35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI. 36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions. 37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business. 38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat]. 39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals. 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. 41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents. 42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use [“]united force[“] to solve economic, political or social problems. 43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government. 44. Internationalize the Panama Canal. 45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike. Note by Webmaster: The Congressional Record back this far has not be digitized and posted on the Internet. It will probably be available at your nearest library that is a federal repository. Call them and ask them. Your college library is probably a repository. This is an excellent source of government records. Another source are your Congress Critters. They should be more than happy to help you in this matter. You will find the Ten Planks of the Communist Manifesto interesting at this point. Webmaster Forest Glen Durland found the document in the library. Sources are listed below. Microfilm: California State University at San Jose Clark Library, Government Floor Phone (408)924-2770 Microfilm Call Number: J 11.R5 Congressional Record, Vol. 109 88th Congress, 1st Session Appendix Pages A1-A2842 Jan. 9-May 7, 1963 Reel 12 Nukeman60 I challenge any socialist or progressive to explain to me why these aren’t the same beliefs and goals as them. I find it disturbing that most of the goals of the UN are the same as the Communists. We must get out of the UN and kick them out of the US. One thing I found interesting was they never mentioned the 2nd amendment and removing guns from the citizenship. That would be imperative, I would think. Wolfie Remind me again. Are these the goals of the Communist Party or the Liberal/Progressive/NObama Regime? It’s so hard, if darn near impossible, to tell the difference if you ask me. Wolfie I’ve noticed the progression of ads are getting more focused, more specific, and IMO, much more effective. sjmom I have prayed the American people wake up before November 6th and I believe after the first debate they are beginning to show signs of it. For many years I have heard the term “silent majority” and it is this majority that will throw Obama out of office. It’s going to get nastier but all people have to do is to go to the grocery store or gas station to see what Obama has cost them. All the spin won’t change what their wallets are telling them. Nukeman60 That ‘silent majority’ is the 80+ million eligible voters who failed to pull the lever in ’08. If we can get just a fraction of them (10% would be sufficient) to perform their Constitutional duties, along with the Obama voters that will switch to Romney (5% would do) and those Obama voters that stay home out of apathy (another 5% would do), then we would have our landslide. It’s not hard to accomplish. Let’s do the math: Obama voters staying home = 69.5 x 5% = 3.5 mil Obama voters switching = 69.5 x 5% = 3.5 mil non-voter pickup = 80 x 10% = 8 mil McCain voters (60 mil)+ O voters staying home or switching (7 mil) + non-voter pickup (8 mil) = 75 million = Romney vote Obama vote = 69.5 mil – 7 mil = 62.5 mil 75 mil is 54.5% and 62.5 mil is 45.5% which equals a landslide. And these numbers are a conservative approach. Certainly room for hope (real hope). (sorry for all the math. It’s what I do, lol) Wolfie Nothing to be sorry for Nman, great post! sjmom Wow! God bless you for you math ability. Churches all over this nation are beginning to get involved and I believe many Christians who have stayed home before will vote this year like they did for “W” in 2000. I also think more than some of the Reagan Democrats will be voting for Obama because there are many Dems who are not leftists. The same goes for union members. I don’t trust the polls, I trust God and the closer Nov 6th gets the more I not only believe Romney/Ryan will win but win big. Wisewoman2 Try your hand at doing the cost/job math on the stimulus 830 billion for 2.5 million jobs, Solenydra $530,000 for 1,100 jobs, and 38 billion for 60,000 green jobs. It will blow your mind that a president could be so stupid to waste borrowed money like that. If voters could truly understand the absurdity of this by Mitt pointing it out clearly and concisely followed up by an ad, Obama would lose in a landslide. No one could defend this utter stupidity. Add to all of that the 2 trillion the feds have also kicked in to keep the economy from falling off the cliff for the same so-called over all 4.5 million jobs Obama brags about and it is truly proposterous, (sp). Taking into consideration the last point only involving the Feds and I calculated over $1,000,000/job. It’s insane!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Army_Pilot1967 I agree that this country can’t afford four more years of obama, but Romney will have to get our wasteful spending under control if he’s elected. To some degree it doesn’t matter who is president….wasteful spending has to stop. Politicians talk about it all the time, but they seldom do anything to curb spending, other than talking about stopping it in the future. The future is here!!!! joyfulgiver Let’s get Romeny elected then we can hold him accountable. I believe he is a man of his word and his past successes prove he is fully capable to right Obama’s wrongs. Remember he said that every spending bill that comes across his desk will be determined by one thing, if WE have to borrow money to spend it, it ain’t gonna happen. Steven Watch the final debt number get revised below a $1 trillion, eventhough it’s currently above $1 trillion. Will show a record upgrade in the receipts number, due to a midyear adjust to bring the final deficit number of $988 billion Yazz55 Just waiting for some of the US Govt bonds that China is holding to mature. And upon maturity, the Chinese wanna get their money back. Would like to see the look on the obamessiah’s face when he hears this. That would be priceless. Rich Wojcik 30 Christian students executed by muslims in Nigeria – Why is BHO shouting about that so loud??? Oh, he isn’t……………………………………………? SHAME!!!! Jay He didn’t waste all of it. He spent some on golf, vacations, his wife’s personnal assistants, Letterman appearances… dontdrinkthecoolaid He didn’t waste it, he bought GM, bailed out some banks, started some alternative energy companies and had a lot of that money flow back to him in the form of campaign donations after everyone else skimmed some for themselves. david r A few wise quotes from my favorite founding father in regards to this add, and to the debt and the issuance of our currency. – Thomas Jefferson ” It is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debt as it goes. A principle if acted on would save one-half the wars of the world.”-T. Jefferson ” I believe that baking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”-T. Jefferson ” I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trail by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our county.”-T.Jefferson bobemakk Excellent…keep it up Romney/Paul.
