Funny, you mention Goldman Sucks. They were the second largest contributor to your boy Barry. In fact, take a look at the list attached and see Morgan Stanley, Citi, JP Morgan in addition to GS for a total of $3MM contributed to BHO last election cycle.... far exceeding any Republican by a mile. If anybody is in bed with Wall Street it's your boy. Thanks for the self ownage.

Your problem is you are continually blind to how much more people dislike the Tea Party Republicans. You keep making the same mistake over and over. You keep thinking that Obama job disapproval numbers means that Tea Party and Republican approval numbers automatically go up.

But the same disapproval you talk about for Obama is EVEN WORSE when you look at the disapproval numbers for the Tea Party, and the Tea Party Republican House. They are lower than Bush's numbers at the end of his term.

You think disapproval translates into pro-Tea Party Republican votes. But they don't. Massive disapproval translates to protests, marches, and "F LI C K . Y O U . A L L" votes, not Tea Party Republican votes.

That's REAL funny, because Mitt Romney gets 9 out of every 10 dollars donated by Goldman Sucks. A full order of magnitude larger than Obama.



Ownage right back at your own ignorance, and your 3 years out of date links. Here are the numbers as of 10/17/11, as opposed to your 2008 numbers. In case pictures aren't clear enough for you, the huge dark red section dominating these graphs is Romney whoring himself back out to his buddies he used to work shoulder to shoulder with on Wall Street.

So there is a total of $850K to Romney ---- and Goldman Sachs donated $1MM ALONE to your boy in 2008...and those same companies donated $3MM to $850K. You aren't very good at math are you?

Great source as well.....HUffington Post

It's just the right think to do, after all, he'll need a new place to live pretty soon.

Booohooo. What a terrible man he is! He passed healthcare reform - my god! He pulled us out of the imminent economic collapse we were headed for. He got our troops out of Iraq. He got Bin Laden. He repealed DADT. What a bastard! And that wife of his - trying to get kids to be healthy - the nerve! When it comes to sugar and fat, kids should "just say no".

Sorry he can't float over the earth, sprinkling magic fairy dust to fix the worldwide economy. Maybe Romney can use his magic underwear.

Ah yes, the typical liberal MO...resort to name calling and get emotional....on an internet forum to boot. Who'da thunkit?

So, you think one's GPA is a direct reflection on one's level of intelligence? I don't. Just as a side point, what were BHO's grades at Harvard? Oh that's right......nobody knows them but BHO becasue he won't release them. Makes you wonder huh?

Try this on for size.

His grades were somewhere between the top 20% of his class at Harvard, and the top 5% at Harvard, plus Obama did work that warranted special recognition. That's what Magna Cum Laude at Harvard Law School means. Yes, this is a direct reflection of Obama's high level of intelligence.


Are you implying that somewhere between the top 5% and the top 20%, that Harvard Law School Graduates are all stupid? Or do you just have a problem accepting that a guy named Barack Obama can be so much smarter than you that it makes you babble mindlessly and cry like first grader?

I wasn't aware that in stating the opinion that you suck at debating, I resorted to name-calling. Thanks for clearing that up for me. And BTW, any one of us can pull about a thousand examples of name-calling from the right, so what's your point? Also, how am I getting emotional? I used no punctuation other than a period, and no emoticons. In fact, this is quite bizarre, coming from a guy who uses "For Christsake" several times per post.

Well that certainly explains a lot about you. I'd say that any normally-wired person would classify a top Harvard Law grad as intelligent, but I guess that's what makes you who you are.

No, doesn't make me wonder at all - just as I didn't wonder about any other President's grades that I never saw. I think his Magna Cum Laude status speaks for itself, unless you're one of those conspiracy guys, which wouldn't surprise me in the least.

Great source as well.....HUffington Post
You are comparing early primary totals from before a single primary contest has been held, to totals from the end of the entire 2008 General Election. Romney has WAY, WAY more money from Wall Street and Goldman Sucks than Obama had at this same point in the 2008 election cycle. So much more that you should be embarrassed to even bring up the comparison.


So let me get this straight. You don't accept a graph of numbers straight from candidate disclosure papers, just because the graph was created by huffington post. Even though multiple news sites all reported the same numbers. If you think these numbers are wrong, try to debunk them with some right wing nutter website. I'll provide a link to the primary source data, and make you look silly yet again. Let's do it.

But you think that some mindless hack website called "atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com" is a super awesome authoritative site.

*FACEPALM*

If he is so intelligent then why wasn't he offered a clerkship? NOT A ONE. That speaks volumes.

This is what happens when you rely upon some crappy righwing blog site named after a God-Hating Atheist Russian fiction writer. You get your facts wrong.

Obama actually TURNED DOWN clerkship when offered.

Here is what happens when you find real sources, The New York Times:

"There was that young lawyer from Hawaii and Harvard, Barack Obama, who turned down a Mikva clerkship offer, instead choosing to go back to Chicago and enter politics. I thought, this guy really has brass, Judge Mikva recalled"

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/06/26/us...s/26mikva.html



So even according to your own pointless and idiotic standard of being offered clerkship being the ONLY way for Obama to be intelligent, Obama passes your own test.

Man, you guys are awesome at making yourselves look stupid by regurgitating whatever idiotic thing you are told without doing an ounce of fact-checking. Fact checking is easy. Try it sometime, it will help you avoid looking so stupid in the future.

He's interning now, albeit not so successfully but, like before, he can always go back to Chicago.

Great flip-flops in history.....From Sen. Obama’s Floor Speech, March 20, 2006:

The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies. … Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that “the buck stops here.” Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.

"The above quote consists of two excerpts from a long speech delivered by Barack Obama during a Senate debate over raising the national debt limit on March 16, 2006. Along with his entire party, Senator Obama voted against the increase, which passed nonetheless with overwhelming Republican support."

So really, this was not just an Obama flip-flop, this was a wholesale reversal of today's situation by the entire democratic congress and republican congress. You left out that crucial fact, either by deception or ignorance.

The more relevant question is, why did the repubs embrace it then, when now they act like it's only irresponsible dems who support debt ceiling increases? Could it be perhaps that the party in power understands the necessary evil of raising it, whereas the other side can act all righteous and wash their hands of it? So instead of blaming one side, just chalk it up to an undesirable necessity of government, and move on.

Just a little update for 2011....

WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 (UPI) -- Democratic President Barack Obama is blowing away his Republican challengers when it comes to soliciting donations on Wall Street, fundraising figures show.

The Washington Post reported Wednesday its analysis of contribution data reveals Obama has raised more from the financial and banking sector this year than all of the GOP presidential hopefuls combined.

Obama, the numbers show, received more money from fewer donors, the newspaper said.

The president even out-raised Mitt Romney at Bain Capital, a private equity firm in Boston the former Massachusetts governor co-founded. Romney pulled in $34,000 from 18 Bain employees while Obama took in $76,600 from three Bain employees, the Post found in its review of data from the Center for Responsive Politics.

Obama's fundraising benefits from his raising money not only for himself but also for the Democratic National Committee, which then contributes to his re-election effort.

Apart from the nearly $12 million he helped raise for the DNC, Obama has raised $3.9 million from the finance sector for his own campaign committee, compared with Romney's $7.5 million and nearly $2 million by Texas Gov. Rick Perry. No other GOP candidate surpassed $400,000 from the finance sector, the Post said.

Wow an encumbent president receiving more money from Wall street doners than his challengers. Shocking!!!! I'm sure that's never happened before.

Are you outraged that the president is receiving money from Wall street or are you just pissed he's raising more money than his Republican challengers???

He' most likely really pissed about Obama's policy of being black.
