I think at one point during the debate Barack Hussein Obama did claim 18 tax cuts for small business during his tenure.
But whatever number they’re touting, it’s bogus.
In fact, if you look at Obama’s list, you quickly realize that all but four have either expired or will soon expire, aren’t cuts at all, or are double-counted. And the rest are pretty much worthless.
For example, Obama still counts tax cuts that have already expired. The tax credit for hiring unemployed workers, enacted as part of the so-called HIRE act in 2010, is gone. So too is the break for estimated tax payments and the expanded deduction of health care expenses for the self-employed.
Time to bomb Libya I guess
“Jim ole boy, your in a fix now...its time to start spending your days at the horse track. No invite to Dan Rathers house.”
Not to worry, Lerher looked like a corpse anyway!
I heard that...and I started sceaming at the TV.
I know what I pay in taxes and that was a f*n lie.
Kerry is not rich. He never made an honest dime in his life. He has to ask Mommy for money whenever he wants a new toy.
NATO ally Turkey just shelled Syria. If you are Assad and watched this debate, you’ve got to be thinking that anywhere away from Damascus and far underground looks good for the next few months.
“No invite to Dan Rathers house.”
Is that a good thing or a bad thing?
The Democrat party is the party of lies, and what became clear tonight is that Ubama is simply a terrible liar. Is it any wonder the rats still fawn over that guy who got impeached and disbarred for lying in court, had an affair with an intern young enough to be his daughter, and jerked off in the Oval Office sink? Clinton was a “very good liar”*.
(* Bob Kerrey, D-Nebraska)
Meanwhile, Bill and Hillary are making a lot of phone calls as they gear up for ‘16...
Turns out that Clint Eastwood is right on the money, “Obama is useless”!!! If American Blacks don’t broom this Racist Obama dude and his hate America wife Michelle, they will be adrift at sea for next hundred years!!!
Of course the taxes have gone down!
Due to Obama's beneficent oversight, there are fewer small businesses due to them closing down or going bankrupt.
Thanks, smooth - great column.
Yo - don’t be mean. Leave Michelle out of this!!!!!
Howie Carr list ping
How much you wanna bet the rumored ‘October Surprise’ bombing of aspirin factories in Libya will occur just before the Foreign Policy Debate?
“No one should ever use the words cerebral and Barack in the same sentence ever again. He bragged about cutting taxes $3,600 for middle-class families maybe they can buy a new car. “
Does this sound like a guy who has ever done anything real? He’s lucky the subject of Libya didn’t come up. He probably still thinks the porn video caused all the commotion.
Yep Syria. You guys are right.
Obama ATE the dog that ate his homework.
Lehrer did interrupt Romney more and had to help Obama at least once by recapping what he was trying to say!
Keep yelling at the tv next time. It worked!
A $3600 tax break does me little good if my income is slashed by over 50%.
“Consider the teacher he met in Nevada. She had 42 students and the textbooks were 10 years old. This was the best Barack Obama could come up with?”
That story is one of those typical stupid obama campaign trail stories that either are a complete lie or probably terrible exagerated. They left one part of the story out. Obama said that she said, “that some of the kids were sitting on the floor.” I badly wanted Romney to say, “Is that right, who is this lady, which school, I would like to meet her myself.”
I find it hard to beleive there are schools in this country where there are children sitting on the floor, except maybe during story time. Luckily Romney decided not to call obama out on this stupid story, and I am quite certain the media doesn’t believe it either. However, obama has done this and gotten away with it a hundred times.
Well in a presidential debate, the one who wins the first one, wins the election. Well Mitt won the first, it is a good sign.
Well, obviously the "over-prepared" obama would easily crush Romney on that one
There will be other debates, and he’ll have time to recover. Don’t break out the champagne just yet.
As with his entire career....Zero showed up and voted “ present “ In the debates....
Probably thought though sheer arrogance he could wing it ... Like he wings everything else....
I don't even buy that she has 42 students. Most classes, unless specialty classes, are around 20 to 25 due to the goonion contracts.
I live in Nevada.
We baby our teachers here and keep throwing money at the education “problem” hand over fist.
I didn’t buy that teacher bit for a nanosecond.
Is that the Obamaphone lady?
“It was that Barack was revealed as a clueless dolt.”
Even then he was able to get in his talking points for the owners of the Democratic Party (the teachers’ unions) - he is talking about hiring so many more “math & science” teachers while so many places are laying off teachers - and he didn’t say what we could do with the public school “teachers” currently being paid to pretend teaching math & science.
Romney did a good job, and for the first time since his election Obama was held accountable for his record (without his Speak & Spell to help him).
I now have coffee all over my screen. Thanks.
It's over. The only thing to do. Nixon resigned under far less reasons. You, should be tried for treason for trying to overthrow the government. You ARE the enemy from within.
“Jim Lerher was suppose to be asking questions with skewed liberal promises, thats the mainstream medias oath.”
None of them want to e publicly lampooned on the ‘net (or late-night TV) for their Obama kneepads anymore, and I’m sure many of them see the writing on the wall for Obama and no reason to throw away the tiny bit of self-respect they have left for him.
Romney brutalized Obama.
“For once I would say Obama met and exceeded expectations for a poor performance.”
Obama’s performance last night was a scathing indictment of affirmative action, and the Dem media’s response to/spinning of it was a perfect case of the soft bigotry of lowered expectations.
But they made him practice for the debate “all day”.
He probably had an earpiece; that still only works as long as you can focus on both your coach AND the person in front of you, and even the coach would have a hard time refuting your opponent “live”.
People got a great view of the real Obama (without his Speak & Spell); I doubt he’s still viewed as a great orator. I don’t know what the Obama camp expected; he has nothing but a disastrous record to run on, and is an easy target on so many fronts. He did get in his lip service to his owners, though: thousands and thousands of new teachers needed...
The last study I read reported that, for every $1.00 of gasoline, “big oil” makes app. .08 cents profit. A large percentage goes to paying for R&D, production, delivery, marketing, etc. (paid by the consumer, of course). Meanwhile, .30-.40 cents of every dollar spent on gasoline goes to state and federal taxes. This breakdown, of course, depends upon the state and the region.
And these leftists love to complain about the ‘gazillions’ of dollars of profit that ‘big oil’ is making, how they ‘gouge’ the people at the pumps.
When I went to public school BEFORE the teachers were unionized, a standard class was 40 students and it was a red letter day if we got a textbook that only listed 3 previous owners.
And this school where the kids supposedly sat on the floor is in whose state?
Oh, that would be HARRY REID!
And the floor is *dirt*...and the poor kids have no butts!
They walk uphill in the snow, both ways to get there...with no shoes cuz they’ve got no feet.
Romney really “brought it” on many occasions. My favorite was when he reminded Mr. Liberal Kenyan do-gooder that instead of spending money on teachers, he chose to funnel it to his favorite “green” money laundrying system, Solyndra.
Oh, my, that was a delectable morsel indeed.
(Still wish Newt could have been up there, though ...;)
Newt would have pulverized him to fine ground matter.
He’s such an easy target, though — my 11 year old could have debated him and beat him easily.
Love that line!
I loved the “we agree on not touching Medicare...oh wait, I just remembered...Obama’s cutting 6 billion from Medicare”
[or whatever the number was]
Yeah...he “just remembered”.
Talk about a setup/knockdown.
So the heated Primary system works or is Obama just vacuous and the media has covered for him for so long it’s finally coming out?
But don’t forget the effect of inflation. We’ve had QE1, QE2, and QE3, each of which degrades the value of the dollar. But all the while the value of petroleum stays pretty much the same. Net result - it takes more dollars to buy the same amount of oil.
OPEC ain’t stupid - they’re not going to sell a barrel of oil for the same amount of dollars that they did 4 years ago, when those dollars are worth much less than they were 4 years ago.
CNN’s post-debate poll.
Romney high 60s
Obama mid 20s
including women:) Obama has no pressers, no media criticism. A crisis is sure to happen to prevent Obama appearing in future debates:)
