Barrack the Backward has destroyed more jobs in America than Mitt could in ten lifetimes.

The biggest life long leach ever to grace the country, calling a successful businessman a vampire. Anybody else sensing the irony here?

*************************
“Leach” is a verb, Misspelled Hemorrhoid. I’m guessing the word you want is “leech,” a favorite right wing pejorative for liberals, whether or not it fits.

Please list the ways Obama has “leeched” off our system. And make sure that your list contains FACTS (not just “well, everybody knows that ‘blacks’ do thus and such” or “Well, Rush seems to think that Obama plays too much golf and takes too many vacations” assumptions.)

Can you do it, without deflecting, name calling or repeating unsubstantiated rumors?

No, it’s a deliberate (and rather racist) attempt to insinuate that our First Lady is one of those fictitious “welfare queens” who won’t stay in her place.

Any Lie is a good lie when your a lie-beral..Romney is a rookie compared to the life that Count Barakcula has sucked out of our economy…..And come to think of it he even looks like that creepy little fellow that was on Count Chocula cereal. With Count Barakula we all got two puncture wounds in our wallet.

Really? That’s kind of odd, when Obama hasn’t raised taxes. In what specific way has Obama taken more money from you?

Even politifact says he raised taxes. Perhaps you are thinking of federal income taxes, which he caved on before the GOP took the House. You ought to do some research on the taxes imposed on medical device makers and other industries to pay for Obamacare.

Why would they? As far as I can recall, I can’t think of any government sponsored medical testing that used only Mormon men, and failed to mention that half of them would be getting placebos instead of the treatment they were led to expect.

Do you think it was right or moral of our government to lie to so many black men, Flash? To intentionally foster longterm complications of syphilis, while telling them they were receiving treatment for it? Do you think God would be more likely to bless, or condemn, such dishonest actions of our government?

And, finally, do you have the guts to answer the above questions, or are you going to try to deflect with name calling and “but but but Obama” non sequiturs?

Gosh, Poopajoe, I can’t find any evidence that those experiments were conducted exclusively on white men. Where did you hear that? ;>)

I believe if you research those claims you made you’ll find out that those so called experiments were conducted in the south, where almost all politicians were democrats, and it was democrats that allowed it to transpire. You can say gov’t all you want but most conservatives are not in gov’t for a career, they instead venture out to places where they can earn real money. So yeah those kinds of things were done but they were done with the full knowledge and blessing of the democrat party.

It was a federal government project. Unless you have evidence of the voting records of those who conceived, planned, conducted and interpreted it, you’re just pointing fingers. In fact, it doesn’t matter how they voted—-it was shameful of the government to sanction such irresponsible practices, and shameful of those who carried them out to keep quiet about it for so many years.

But there IS no “democrat party,” Rick. It’s the DemocratIC party (capitalized adjective). If you can’t even keep the name of the party straight, what are the chances that your accusation is accurate?

And, by the way, “But most conservatives aren’t career government people!” is an irrelevant excuse. ALL who had a hand in this experiment, REGARDLESS of party, are guilty. If you’re going to accuse the Democratic party of “blessing” such a violation of public trust ,you must also accuse the Republicans. After all, it was a Republican sitting in the Oval Office when the the truth finally got out about it.

But that’s not the point I was making. Do you think Reverend Wright and his congregation had a right to be outraged at the government taking advantage of poor, rural black men in such a way? Do you think they might have felt that God would condemn such racist and dishonest practices at the hands of the U.S. government?

Not to mention Mitt bears zero responsibility in the murders of anyone.
This is just another distraction tactic to keep people from thinking about Op Gunwalker.
There are congressmen drafting Contempt of Congress charges against Holder, this can’t bode well for Obama if it is allowed to make headlines.

Well, finally we agree on something, albeit for different reasons. Mitt doesn’t bear ANY responsibility, because he changes his position according to what day it is, and who’s in the audience. Quite simply, the only core belief that man has is that he wants to be able to check off “Become president of the U.S.” on his bucket list.

That’s why none of you can or will defend him, or explain why you think he’d make a good president—-because you don’t even know what he stands for.

Oh, okay—-so you think the other poster was just bitching at being inconvenienced in order to ensure that 30 million uninsured Americans now can have access to affordable health care?

In other words, it’s not about Obama being a “vampire.” It’s about the original poster wanting to be selfish and short sighted.

The only people it is affordable to are the ones that aren’t paying the bill, to the rest of us, it’s real expensive.
