Today the President meets with leaders of Congress from both parties to lay groundwork for the new Congress [01/01/2011]. On November 2 the American people spoke at the ballot box. Just what they said has been fodder for the talks shows on broadcast and cable TV. So far, republicans act as if they have a dispensation unto themselves to speak for the american people. They do not!
DEMOCRATS, have you seen how your republican colleagues are a monolith when they speak on issues and when they vote. Even though they are the “minority party,” they are powerful because they delay their personal projects and issues for the greater good. As Congressional leadership meets with the President today, democrats must muster every inch of legal power to get the people’s work done. Everyone knows what must be accomplished in December: budget, DADT, unemployment compensation, etc. Opponents like to say, “Democrats control Congress.” They are poking fun because democrats have been shooting themselves in the foot for two years. How can we ask similar minded republicans to join us on critical legislation WHEN DEMOCRAT ARE SELFISH AND WON’T PULL TOGETHER. Enough!!! The next two years will be difficult. Who knows the outcome. But surely, if democrat don’t act as a party of one force, the future will be drear. Know that history is a great teacher. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
We witness and ugly chapter in american political history. The people are unhappy with democrats and republicans…and there is no other option. As this Congress winds down, I hear that the top 1% of the country own more wealth than the bottom 90%. Picture that and ask yourself, what is wrong and unfair about this picture? Republicans are making a last minute grab for even more money in the form of the BUSH TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!
After enjoying a grand Thanksgiving with your loved ones, please make the patriotic decision to get involved in the future of the american economy by contacting your representatives in Congress and ask them to vote for an extension of the BUSH TAX CUTS FOR THOSE WHO MAKE LESS THAN A MILLION DOLLARS! http://directory.usayfoundation.org/ . The rich stay rich on the backs of american workers. If we raise our voices we can force Congress to make laws that improve the economy. WORKERS, SUPPORT PRESIDENT OBAMA. He has presided over the largest growth in the economy in history. GOD BLESS AMERICA!
OBAMA MAY NOT BE JESUS… but he is trying to save the world! The President of the United States has alot on his plate:
- Start Treaty
- Repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell
- Healthcare Reform
- Campaign Reform
- Financial Reform
- War Against Al-Qaeda
- Domestic Tranquility
- Security of the Free World
- Global Stability
- Survival of “The American Way”
Have you joined the struggle to encourage and force Washington to do OUR BIDDING AND NOT K STREET? Each of us has a dog in this fight! Raise you voice! Volunteer! Call or fax your senator and representative in D.C. [Use INTERNET] Join grassroot organizations. BE PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN!
SENATOR KYL EMBARASSES PRESIDENT OBAMA ABROAD. This is unheard of. The President is on the global stage representing every American man, woman and child. And, what are republicans doing? They continue the now unpatriotic campaign of “NO!” to gain political advantage and weaken our PRESIDENT while he is abroad trying to make the world a better place for our grandchildren to come. How dispicable! Less powerful countries look to us for leadership and protection. And, what are republicans doing? They attempt to cut Obama off at the knees. The Start Treaty was signed some time ago and has been debated for months. [Have you seen these “debates” to an empty room on C-Span?] All leading voices among those competant to analyze this treaty support the Senate passing this Treaty which is vital to homeland security and stability in the world. Witness the statements from Nato leaders in Lisbon in support of the Start Treaty. Senator Kyl wants more pointless hearings whose purpose is to stall and thwart.
CONTACT SEN. JON KYL OF ARIZONA AND ASK HIM TO STOP HIS OBSTRUCTION AND LET THE START TREATY PASS. PHONE: (202) 224-4521 FAX: (202) 224-2207.
SOME FUTURE, AMERICA! A DELUDED GOP THINKS THEY HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONTINUE GETTING
PAID TO OBSTRUCT THE BUSINESS OF CONGRESS… ALL TO CRUSH DEMOCRATS & WIN IN 2012. THEY BELIEVE THAT “GOP” IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN
“USA”! VOTERS SHOULD NOW HAVE “BUYER’S REMORSE.”
DO YOU SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING? DOES YOUR NEWS SOURCE GIVE YOU BOTH SIDES ON TODAY’S NEWS?
ARE YOU SIMPLY BEING MANIPULATED BY THE MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES WHO REALLY RUN AMERICA? THEY PROTECT THE RICH FROM LOSING MONEY. DO YOU KNOW THAT REPUBLICANS WANT US TO BORROW MONEY FROM CHINA TO GIVE TO THE RICH IN AMERICA AS A TAX BREAK? DO YOU CONSIDER YOURSELF “MIDDLECLASS”? WELL, REPUBLICANS DON’T WANT TO GIVE YOU A TAX BREAK. ARE YOU WITHOUT A JOB? REPUBLICANS WON’T EXTEND UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE PAYMENTS TO YOU.
HAVE YOU BEEN FOLLOWING REPUBLICAN JOHN McCAIN ON DADT? HE SAID HE WOULD BE GUIDED
BY THE MILITARY. WELL THE MILITARY AND SECRETARY OF DEFENSE GATES WANT DADT
REPEALED. JOHN McCAIN IS NOW BACKTRACKING ON HIS PROMISE TO AMERICA. WAR HEROS
ARE ALWAYS NOBLE AND KEEP THEIR WORD, JOHN McCAIN! KEEP YOUR PROMISE AND
SUPPORT THE REPEAL OF DADT.
PRESIDENT OBAMA, GIRD YOUR LOINS. STEEL YOURSELF. COME OUT AS THE REAL CAPTAIN AMERICA
WHO LEADS WHEN IT’S NOT POPULAR BUT WHO EXPLAINS IN PLAIN LANGUAGE THE JOURNEY
ON WHICH HE LEADS US. MR. PRESIDENT, YOUR CONSCIENCE SHOULD BE CLEAR AFTER TWO
YEARS. YOU TRIED TO MEET REPUBLICANS HALF-WAY. NOW YOU MUST STEADFASTLY BE HARD IN DEMANDING THE CHANGES AND GOALS OF YOUR ADMINISTRATION. USE ALL THE POWERS WE GAVE YOU AS OUR PRESIDENT TO BRING US OUT OF THE NIGHTMARE GEORGE W. BUSH LEFT YOU WITHOUT APOLOGIES. USE EXECUTIVE POWER, BUT, WITH GRAVITASSE. LIFT YOUR HEAD. NO HINT OF DEFEAT EVER! CHANNEL YOUR PREDECESSOR PRESIDENTS WHO HAVE PUT THEIR SINGULAR STAMP ON AMERICA AND THE WORLD. WE LOVE YOU AND PRAY FOR YOU. SIGNED: THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
President Obama…[sounds great!]…Sen. McConnell has led a campaign of “NO” for two years. How can we now expect any success at compromise. You want to compromise because you like playing the game fair and being a force for good. However, sometimes one must follow one’s own imperative. One must be driven by democratic goals and principals as the only achievablesp[sic] We must accept that the opposition is against us. That dog won’t hunt!
