Obama Campaign Seeks To Guilt Supporters Into Donating

In a shameless attempt to guilt Texas resident’s into donating to President Obama’s campaign sent out the email below.

Friend –

Here’s something you don’t have in common with 45,829 other supporters of this movement who tell us they live in Texas.

That many of your neighbors have decided to own a piece of this campaign by making a donation of whatever they could afford. For some, that meant just $5. For others, it meant $100 or more. But each had their own personal reason for giving.

Our records show that you aren’t one of the 45,829 people in your state who have stepped up for 2012. Now’s your chance to change that.

Deepwater-Gate

A significant event has escaped serious media coverage. Few are aware that, despite his posturing on deepwater drilling, President Obama has sunk billions of American taxpayer dollars into Petrobras, a nascent Brazilian oil exploration company. Considering that President Obama consistently alleges deepwater drilling to be unsafe, this turn of events seems the ultimate ethical contradiction. Moreover, it appears that President Obama coordinated this taxpayer-funded investment with a large stock acquisition by leftist billionaire and valued campaign-contributor George Soros. Combined with Obama’s virulent attack on the US oil sector, culminating in a highly illegal ban on drilling, it would appear that Obama is misappropriating government funds to enrich a campaign financier, and possibly himself, with taxpayer dollars.

The Coming Chaos

America is about to be destroyed by debt. And we’re acting like it’s business as usual. In the push to resolve America’s impending debt crisis, much has been done to ensure politically favorable positions for those engaged in the debt talks, and the possibility of a default has been addressed in largely academic terms, with complete disregard for the gruesome realities a default implies. Our leaders are living in a fantasy world, indulging in partisan gamesmanship, concerned only about their re-elections. The time has come for our leaders to be Americans first, and do what needs to be done to save us from collapse.

Default has been discussed as a valid option, even by some conservative writers. But its effects will be cataclysmic. Default must not be viewed in either political or strategic terms. Default spells one word for America:

Crooked Congressman Charlie Rangel Will Be Honored With A $64,000 Portrait

The Washington ruling-class live in their own little world. It was less than a year ago that the arrogant and crooked Congressman, Charlie Rangel, was formally censured after the House Ethics Committee brought him up on 13 charges related unpaid taxes on a villa he owned in the Dominican Republic, undisclosed financial assets and the improper use of his office for fundraising.

Fast forward to the present. The Washington elite feel that their subjects have forgotten this little matter, so it’s time for Speaker Bohner to speak at a ceremony to honor the crooked Congressman with a $64,000 portrait.

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will speak at a ceremony to unveil Rangel’s official portrait as chairman of the storied committee, which the longtime New York Democrat led from 2007 until March 2010, when party leaders pressured him to give up the post amid a growing ethics scandal.

Romney Claims Rick Perry Is Unelectable Because He Isn’t Moderate Enough

In a recent interview with USA Today, Mitt Romney took the opportunity to explain why he thinks Rick Perry is unelectable. He apparently feels that Perry is too fiscally conservative.

Former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney questioned Wednesday whether Texas Gov. Rick Perry could be elected to the White House, given his stances on Social Security and other issues, and he expressed skepticism that his rival had the experience to govern effectively if he did win.

Romney’s caustic critique in a phone interview with USA TODAY previewed likely confrontations tonight between the two leading contenders for the Republican presidential nomination at a Republican debate in Orlando.
