The GOP: Kicked in the Crystal Balls Again

The entire nation is laughing at the hysterical histrionics of the Republican hype machine.

But to review reality for those who like to keep score:

  • When Obama came into office, General Motors was dead and Osama Bin Laden was alive.
  • Today, Osama Bin Laden is dead and General Motors is the largest car maker in the world.
  • Yesterday the Dow hit 13,000 -- a 24% increase in the last 4 months.
  • Al-Qaeda is on life support.
  • Muammar Gaddafi  is dead and we did not lose a soldier thanks to Obama's correct leadership.
  • The war on fraud in Medicare and Medicaid is racking up record recoveries thanks to enforcement efforts we did not see under Bush.
  • Wall Street is terrified Dodd Frank will force them to not cheat.
  • A new proposed tax restructuring will end tax subsidies to companies that move manufacturing jobs overseas, even as it lowers tax rates on companies than manufacture here in America.
  • National health care legislation means that since everyone will get sick someday, everyone has to now pay for insurance, and the insurance industry has to treat us like a large group; no more cherry picking!
  • Illegal immigrant entries have cratered thanks to massive law enforcement at the border and increased enforcement of employer sanctions at the job site.
  • More oil and natural gas is being drilled in the U.S. now than before Obama came into office.
  • Obama has saluted the 2nd amendment as an individual right, has gone trout fishing on the Gallatin River (and he got a new fly rod for his birthday), and taken wolves off of the Endangered Species List.
  • Obama has not cheated on his wife, has not written many years of racists newsletters, and has not embraced a Taliban-like Big Government Program to patrol what goes on in your bedroom.
  • Compare and contrast.  Choose or lose.  Remember in November.

Thank you.

Amidst all the crazy posturing in Washington, it's nice to see something like this.

Here in MI the land-line has been getting a dozen robo-calls per day; all but one from the far right (and that one was from a right-leaning conservative congressman). But without the robo-calls, golly gee, who would know that Romney was working closely with Obama to deprive elders of health care? Or that the best way for Dems to show disapproval of the governor would by voting wing-nut? I can't believe these calls. It has never been this bad.

Dems should fund someone to read your list over the phone. Some truth would be a refreshing change.
