    Only one thing we need to start saying to to the Obama curtain (behind which holds the puppet masters of Axelrod, Jarret, Michelle and a few knucklehead academics who Obama probably listens to)……

    YOU LIE.

    And you think your audience does not know. You think your audience is so stupid that we go along with you.

    Guess what…..we are listening to every word you make and every breath you take.

    We have decided that you are FIRED in November.

    But please…….keep lying and feeding us all with this kind of Baloney Sausage.

    It only makes it easier for us to take an R &R from the nightmare of your mistaken American Presidency.

    Keep it coming – we know that YOU LIE all the time.

    It wasn’t a gaffe. It was a LIE.

    Read on another site that Dems have three categories to “brand” Reps… old, stupid, evil.

    (GWB, Quayle and Sarah Palin = stupid, Dole, McCain = old, Cheney = old AND evil.)

    Well, Ryan isn’t old, nor is he stupid. So they are going with evil–that’s where this meme comes from. And if they have to lie to do it, they’re cool with that.

    Do this with his statements on cutting deficit in half,closing Gitmo, tackling SS problems, putting Obamacare meetings on CSPAN,

    Who Built America?

    President Obama recently made a stunning remark about business owners in America’s free enterprise economy. After dismissing the hard work and ingenuity of successful individuals, the president said, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.” Who? Ultimately, the government.

    Yet this was only the latest version of the president’s four-year disparagement of American entrepreneurialism. In 2008, then-candidate Obama said he intended to “spread the wealth around” — not his own wealth through voluntary transactions, of course, but the earnings belonging to American families through coercive redistribution. In April 2009, he claimed that the founding principles on which America was built are too weak to withstand 21st century pressures. He called our free economy a house built upon sand, destroyed when the financial storm of 2008 hit. America must be reconstructed, he asserted, upon a “new foundation” of “pillars” hewn from the solid rock of big government.

    The moral case for individual initiative in a free economy holds that people have a God-given right to use their creativity to produce things that improve their lives. A free economy and strong communities honor the dignity of every person, reward effort with justice, promote upward mobility, and build solidarity among citizens. The president’s vision of a collective, government-centered society — reflected in his troubling rhetoric and failed policies — divides class against class and belittles fair rewards for workers, entrepreneurs, and investors — those who have built America into the greatest nation in the history of mankind.


  • Ralph Johnson

    You do know that Ryan is in on the conspiracy as well, don’t you? Why else would he propose a budget that wouldn’t end the deficits? That’s not a real conservative for you. We need a balanced budget, not one that’s a sad excuse for tax cuts for the rich.

    And, since the entitlement programs are bad for the country, shouldn’t we end the farm subsidies too? After all, if we’re going to let people fend for themselves, why should farmers be any different?

  • Sasja

    I don’t know if this bill passed the House or not. Boehner was trying to keep it from a vote since it is such a monstrosity but he may have caved. I know the Senate is working to add all their pork to it should it arrive at their doorstep (if it hasn’t already).

    I would suggest you all do a little research starting at the Heritage Foundation. Just type in farm bill.

    Did you know that taxpayers subsidize crop insurance premiums? Last year it came to $7.4 billion. That averages out to roughly 62 cents on each dollar of insurance purchased.

    This is a bill that sets a course for the next five years and one that could end up being very expensive indeed.

    And I haven’t even touched on the amount designated for the food stamp program, or why we need to drop the ethanol program, or knowing they will be bailed out by the taxpayers, farmers will engage in risky practices like cultivating marginal land.

    There is a bunch more but I tire and you all are perfectly capable of finding stuff out on your own.

    President Obama’s Disastrous Record For Farmers

    President Obama, On Paul Ryan’s Record On Disaster Relief: “He Is One Of The Leaders In Congress Standing In The Way. … We’ve Got To Put Politics Aside When It Comes To Doing The Right Thing…” OBAMA: “Now, before I get started, I just want to say a few words about the drought because it’s had such an impact on this state and all across the country. …
    The best way to help these states is for the folks in Congress to pass a farm bill that not only helps farmers and ranchers respond to natural disasters but also makes the necessary reforms and gives farmers and ranchers some long-term certainty. Unfortunately, right now too many members of congress are blocking the farm bill from becoming law.
    I am told that Governor Romney’s new running mate Paul Ryan, might be around Iowa in the next few days. And he is one of the leaders in Congress standing in the way. … We’ve got to put politics aside when it comes to doing the right thing for rural America and for Iowa.” (President Barack Obama, Remarks, Council Bluffs, IA, 8/13/12)

    Click Here To Watch.

    But Earlier This Month, Paul Ryan Voted For Drought Relief Legislation That President Obama Blocked:

    Earlier This Month, Ryan Voted For The Agricultural Disaster Assistance Act Of 2012. (H.R. 6233, Roll Call Vote #554, Passed 223-197: R 188-46; D 35-151; Ryan Voted Aye, 8/2/12)

    The Bill Would Provide $383 Million In Supplemental Agricultural Disaster Assistance To Farmers Affected By The Drought. (“Estimated Effects On Direct Spending Of H.R. 6233,” Congressional Budget Office, 8/1/12)

    Senate Aides Have Claimed The Obama White House Would Have Supported The Bill But Caved To Senate Democrats’ Objection To The Measure. “Moments after the House passed its bill, Ms. Stabenow took to the Senate floor to say that lawmakers would instead work informally over the August recess to try to put together a new measure to present to Congress when it meets in September. The White House would have considered the House measure, but she resisted, Senate aides said.” (Jennifer Steinhauer, “Pile Of Bills Left Behind As Congress Goes To Campaign,” The New York Times, 8/2/12)

  • Sandy

    Wow, you’re incredibly stupid. Did you actually read the NYTimes piece or just didn’t understand it. It states flat out that Ryan DIDN’T pass the bill. And your flying monkey ditto heads are pretty dumb as well.

  • Patty

    President Obama’s Own Budget Would Have Eliminated Direct Support Payments To Farmers. “Obama wants to eliminate direct payments to farmers, which accounted for about 44 percent of farm aid in fiscal 2011. Phasing out the payments is part of a plan to save $32 billion in the next decade by also providing disaster assistance to farmers and by reducing subsidies to crop insurance companies.” (Gary Truitt, “Obama Budget Cuts USDA Funding, Eliminates Direct Payments,” Hoosier Ag Today, 2/13/12)

  • Patty

    Ask the farmers, the deluge of paper work they have to file with government on a daily basis.

    Obama is fighting for farmers? OH NO HE ISN’T, regulations are up to the farmers eyebrows.

  • lizzy84

    Bit more here on the Farm Bill from FR thread…
    The drought is a new line of attack from Obama on the campaign trail on a day when both he and Ryan are campaigning in the crucial Midwest battleground state.

    From WSJ:

    “House leaders note that they passed a narrower drought-relief measure, but Senate Democrats rejected it, saying it was no substitute for a broader farm bill.”

    Reading comprehension sure isn’t your forte, is it? Second paragraph says (quoted for your convenience):

    After refusing to consider a sweeping five-year farm measure, House Republican leaders jammed through a short-term $383 million package of loans and grants for livestock producers and a limited number of farmers. The measure passed 223 to 197 (emphasis added), a narrow margin for a bill that has an impact on so many states. But Democrats balked in protest over the way the farm legislation has been handled and some Republicans objected to the costs.

    Either you can’t read, or the NYTimes is lying according to your hyperventilating screed. Which is it?

  • They Passed The “Republican Version” Of The Farm Bill Not The “Other One” So Possibly The Democratic Senate Won’t Pass It!!! That Was What Obama Was Referring Too…

    The House Republican leadership chose not to bring a long-term, committee-passed farm bill to the floor for a vote before the August recess, fearing a Republican split over spending and farm price supports. The House instead passed a short-term measure which the Senate rejected, saying it was too limited.

    Democrats object to a proposed $16 billion cut in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or food stamps, while conservatives would rather the cuts be more in tune with the budget outlined by Ryan, which called for a $33 billion reduction.

    Ya Sure, He Is For The Farmers…

    Ryan comes from the bi-partisan camp that unsuccessfully pushed harder for cuts to farm programs in the 2008 farm bill. Ryan worked with Reps. Ron Kind, D-Wis., Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., and Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., on proposals that would have cut direct payments and placed a tighter overall cap on farm programs, including reducing payments on crop insurance…

I looked up the definition of communist, and the dictionary says it’s an economic system where there is no private property, but all goods are owned in common. Like in the USSR, where the state owned all the means of production – all the factories, all the stores, etc. I must have missed the news flash that showed Obama wanted the government to confiscate all the factories, stores, etc. Could you please point me to that?

    Stupid is forever, ignorance can be fixed.

    “Though a version of the farm bill passed the Senate, Republican leaders in the House chose not to hold a vote because of GOP opposition to farm subsidy and food stamp funding in the bill. Ryan is among the Republican leaders supporting cuts to food stamps.”

    “Partisan cooperation and the dire need for congressional action on a federal farm bill were two of the key points U.S. Rep. Bruce Braley emphasized during his stop Monday at The Des Moines Register’s soapbox at the State Fair.”

    The farm bill includes funding for food stamps, farm subsidies and other agriculture programs as well as drought relief, which Braley highlighted Monday as critical to all Americans.

    The bill passed the Senate in June but has stalled in the Republican-controlled House because of intraparty divisions over spending.

    Obama doesn’t want anything more than to trash Ryan, he would be hard pressed to try but try he will.

    Now, the job is up to Romney and Ryan to make it clear who Ryan is and his experience and in some way of course Ryan’s character. This won’t be hard to do as Ryan has been true to his love for God, family and faith. Hard to find anything wrong with his and his knowledge of numbers and that is where he has it all over Obama.

    Paul Ryan, King of the Reagan Babies

    I’ve written for Politico a piece that’s running this morning about Paul Ryan titled, “The King of the Reagan Babies.”

    My point? That Ryan is the best of the young conservative leaders who came of age during Reagan’s presidency and have inherited at least some of their political character from him.

    From the piece:

    Obama’s spin doctors are salivating at the chance to dissect Ryan’s conservative record and politically disembowel him with it.

    But they don’t understand that Ryan’s conservatism is not going to hurt him anymore than Ronald Reagan’s did in 1980. Bearing, like Reagan, a specific plan of action for difficult times, Ryan may be just the man to ride his conservatism straight into the West Wing.

    Because Ryan is the king of the Reagan babies. The one that most resembles dad.

    I think the Beltway types, including many in the GOP, who think Ryan’s positions on Medicare and other issues are going to hurt the ticket are wrong. They don’t get that people are ready for tough answers to frightening questions about the debt this country is accumulating and its growing reliance on government.

    Here’s a link to the article. You know, in case you missed the first one I provided. I hope you have a chance to check it out.

    Ryan pick, carries real danger for Obama


    If you sense of note of frustration in the missive, remember that the Obama campaign is badly trailing Mitt Romney’s operation in fundraising, and its allied SuperPacs are being swamped by rivals on the right.

    The Obama campaign appears to have done away with the demands for $3, upping its minimum request by two bucks.

    Ryan indeed is one of the best fundraisers in the House, and his donations include money from ideologically motivated conservative donors like the Koch brothers. But the notion that Ryan could bring in “hundreds of millions more dollars” than Romney and his allies would otherwise have collected is probably fiction.

    And the email is a sure sign that the Obama campaign will open a new avenue in its attacks on Ryan, seeking to tie him to “sinister” wealthy conservatives.

  • Patty

    This should scare Obama because Ryan has just gotten started on his Intelligent and Calm attack with facts on Obama. Yes, Obama should fear him greatly.

    50% Now View Paul Ryan Favorably; 43% Say He Was Right Choice

    The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 50% of Likely U.S. Voters now have a favorable opinion of Ryan, while 32% view him unfavorably. This includes 29% with a Very Favorable view of Romney’s vice presidential pick and 13% with a Very Unfavorable one. Only 13% are now unfamiliar with Ryan, and five percent (5%) are not sure about him.

    Janna Ryan wears $70 dress, looks better than Michelle in $500


    Sporting a $70 Dana Buchman dress (now on discount at Kohl’s for $35), the newest addition to the campaign wives’ club commanded attention not for her bold pink floral print but for her fashion frugality…

    Ryan’s low-cost (and machine washable!) outfit choice knocks a few zeros off some of the designer digs her fellow Republican ticket wife Ann Romney has been spotting in. Romney made waves in May after wearing a silk Reed Krakoff blouse that retails for $990 during an interview on morning television.

    Passing a one year drought relief bill is NOT passing “THE Farm Bill” and the fact that all of you sheep are being led to believe it is, is downright frightening.

    THE Farm Bill is Senate Bill 3240 “Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act of 2012 ”

    The bill passed in the House HR 6233 “Agricultural Disaster Assistance Act of 2012” is NOT a general farm bill, but rather a very specific short term bill for drought relief.

    I expect better of journalists.

    Obama isn’t the only gaffe machine. . .

    Here is Biden

    Actually Biden was talking to the union workers and illegals who live in Virginia and are expected to cross state lines and vote early and often. . .It is the DemocRAT party way!!

  • The context of Obama’s remarks is not about the content of the Farm Bill, its about the drought and disaster that farmers are facing in the area, and he’s acting like Ryan and Republicans in congress are doing nothing about it when they already did.

    Sorry Budget C. You’re wrong.

    I enjoy looking at biased websites and articles, just for the comment section. It’s pretty sad. No matter which side it is, the other is always demonized when they screw up.

    #110 Mark — The vast majority of this country is lost because they cannot think for themselves and cannot comprehend the situation we’ve been digging ourselves into for for at least half a century.

    Maybe this is what we’ve been digging: a predictable grave. “When the voter discovers he can vote himself generous gifts from the public treasury” —

    “A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship.”
    “The average age of the world’s greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200 years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
    •From bondage to spiritual faith;
    •From spiritual faith to great courage;
    •From courage to liberty;
    •From liberty to abundance;
    •From abundance to complacency;
    •From complacency to apathy;
    •From apathy to dependence;
    •From dependence back into bondage

    “These words were written two years before George Washington became our first President. There is so much truth in these words it makes me shudder, especially since we are clearly in stage 7. An honest appraisal of our country’s downward spiral is necessary to begin the process of redemption. We have continually voted ourselves increased benefits, dependent upon the printing presses of the Federal Reserve to sustain our country’s ponzi scheme. We have pawned our future and the bill will eventually come due.

    When asked, “What have you given us?” Benjamin Franklin replied, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

    Also BF, “When the people find they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.”

    1. Farm aid ruins our economy and that of other nations as well:,121953

    2. Food stamps are a cash cow for big agriculture, who in turn kick up to big Democrat.

    3. Is it just coincidence that the poorest county in the poorest state in the US is also the most obese county in the most obese state in the US?:

    You people calling the rest of us sheep and uninformed really need to learn a factoid or two before you go on the attack. American doesn’t need food stamps or farm subsidies. We did fine without both for 160 years as a nation, and for nearly two additional centuries before that. And since we’ve had both, we’ve neither ended poverty nor ensured against drought or economic recession. Food stamps and farm subsidies are just slush funds of wealth redistribution that create the opportunity for Democrats to divert money to their own causes, like getting re-elected. If the money doesn’t pass through their fingers, there’ no chance any of it might get stuck there on the way through.

    The farm bill passed weeks ago was being blocked by Paul Ryan and other reps. Don’t any of you people actually READ? If anyone wonders why America is having issues, just read the comments page of this ridiculous right wing nut job blog. It’s amazing what the retarded on here will say when they are surrounded by their lunatic fringe. If you read any left leaning blog, the posts are for the most part sane and questioning. The idiots on here just flame any Democrat with phony lies and ridiculous assertions. You can’t reason with racists, bigots and crazies. So you’re right, our country is going to remain divided. Because those who vote against their own interested are just plain and simply rock bottom stupid.

    What the Republicans passed was an amendment that brings temporary short term relief. The Farm Bill of 2012 is due for renewal September 2012. THAT is what Obama was talking about. The Farms Bill is a terrible Bill and republicans are trying to fix it, thus the delays. What the Dems don’t want to do is pass the short term bill because it takes away some of their pet entitlements so they have stalled it in Senate. I don’t like Obama, but when he said Republicans need to pass the FARMS BILL he was NOT talking about the quick fix they passed two weeks ago he was talkng about the Agricultural Reform Food and Jobs Act of 2012. I wish the news would get on this and report it correctly.

  • Ralph Johnson

    #97 – “No one says it quite like Gingrich does.” And his comment on Ryan’s budget was? If you’ve forgotten, he called it “right wing social engineering.” Or do you pick and choose what to believe that Newt says?

  • Ralph Johnson

    I’m not a budget expert, and I bet nobody else on this site is, either. But David Stockman, Ronald Regan’s director of the Office of Management and Budget from 1981 through 1985, is. This is what he has to say about Paul Ryan’s budget plans.

    I’d be interested in hearing anyone’s detailed critique of this article. And, “Stockman sucks” does not qualify.

    #106 – “Janna Ryan wears $70 dress, looks better than Michelle in $500”

    Patty, is this high school? Were you one of the mean girls?

  • Stockman is right in that the Ryan plan isn’t enough and will not save us entirely from the deficit. However, it moves us in the right direction, and since the Democrats have offered NO budget for over 1000 days, and further that the pathetic budgets Obama has offered have been voted down by 100% total unaimous bipartisan rejection… what’s your point, again?

  • Ralph Johnson

    #125 – Marxism espouses the communist economic system, whereby the means of production are owned by the state. All the factories, all the stores, etc., are owned by the state. Now, I may have missed it, so could you point me to where Obama’s “Marxist friends” have espoused state ownership of factories, oil refineries, coal mines, steel mills, etc.? Or are you just throwing around loaded terms you don’t understand?

  • mcc

    #127 — Or are you just throwing around loaded terms you don’t understand?

    Listen to this interview with Dr. John Drew, a conservative professor of political science who was a Communist in his youth and founder of the Marxist Student Association at Occidental College:

    Interview by Jeff Kuhner – Dr. Drew describes Obama’s total dedication to Communist revolution in America, beginning with his youthful indoctrination in Hawaii by the well-known member of the Communist Party of America (CPUSA) Frank Marshall Davis, and continuing through his college years, as personally witnessed by Dr. Drew based on his close personal contact with Obama at Occidental College.

    Perhaps you agree more with Thomas Sowell:

    It bothers me a little when conservatives call Barack Obama a “socialist.” He certainly is an enemy of the free market, and wants politicians and bureaucrats to make the fundamental decisions about the economy. But that does not mean that he wants government ownership of the means of production, which has long been a standard definition of socialism.

    What President Obama has been pushing for, and moving toward, is more insidious: government control of the economy, while leaving ownership in private hands. That way, politicians get to call the shots but, when their bright ideas lead to disaster, they can always blame those who own businesses in the private sector.

    Politically, it is heads-I-win when things go right, and tails-you-lose when things go wrong. This is far preferable, from Obama’s point of view, since it gives him a variety of scapegoats for all his failed policies, without having to use President Bush as a scapegoat all the time.

    Government ownership of the means of production means that politicians also own the consequences of their policies, and have to face responsibility when those consequences are disastrous — something that Barack Obama avoids like the plague.

    Dr. Drew has more recently expressed his sense that Obama, had he grown beyond these childish notions, he would have announced his departure from them. All who experience epiphanies remember their hour of enlightenment. And are eager to share it.

    That article is most likely at American Thinker where this can be found as well:

    And I find Dr. Drew’s interview less than compelling. Here’s a quote from the Front Page interview.

    “FP: What did Obama say that made you think he was a Marxist?
    Drew: I only remember bits and fragments of the actual conversation.”

    That doesn’t give much faith that his memory is accurate, if he only remembers bits and pieces.

    And this is coming from someone who admits that he was an avowed Marxist. Why should you believe him? And if you do accept that people can change their political views as radically as Dr. Drew supposedly did, why is that not also applicable to the supposedly Marxist young Obama?

    The Farm Bill Will Not Solve the Drought

    We write urging you to resist special interest calls to use the current
    drought to lock taxpayers into a trillion dollars worth of bad agriculture
    policy. As you accurately noted recently, passing a new Farm Bill filled
    with special interest entitlements is not needed to address the drought
    facing many of our nation’s farmers.

    The challenging, yet predictable, drought conditions across much of the country must not be misused to expand an overly-generous federal role in agriculture. Agriculture already has a more than adequate safety net in the gold-plated federal crop insurance program in which taxpayers pick up, on average, 62% of the premium costs for crop insurance. These policies allow businesses to guarantee up to 85% of their expected revenue. Crop insurance cost taxpayers more than $11 billion last year. With more than half of the country in moderate to severe drought, taxpayer costs for this generous program will easily be double, triple, or more in 2012.

    Agriculture is an inherently risky business, and as you said in your July 19th press conference, most producers already have subsidized federal crop insurance policies. Those that do not enroll in the highly subsidized program have a multitude of private sector options available for managing risk, including hedging, forwarding, diversification, contracting, and many other unsubsidized options. Taxpayers cannot afford to bail out producers who chose not to purchase subsidized crop insurance or to avail themselves of the many private sector options for managing their normal business risk. Taxpayers simply cannot afford to bear all the risks for any business sector, including agriculture.

    The Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act (FARRM) passed by the House Agriculture Committee is not needed to address the current drought conditions. In fact, nearly 80% of the bill’s $957 billion price tag is not even directed at producers, but on social welfare spending programs such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Regardless of whether a Farm Bill is passed, crop insurance will continue to quickly compensate producers for the bulk of their losses. The bill should have been used as an opportunity to save taxpayers billions while reducing the manipulative role of the federal government in the business decisions of a vital sector of the American economy. Instead, the Committee bill obligates nearly 60% more than the last Farm Bill, creates three new taxpayer-paid “shallow loss” programs, and does nothing to rein in, and in fact expands, taxpayer-subsidized crop insurance.

    Farm businesses are riding on several years of record farm income unlike other sectors in the economy. Net farm income is at $98 billion, nearly doubling between 2001 and 2011. Like all business cycles, farm incomes rise and fall as favorable growing years are periodically followed by poor years. Most farm businesses will not only be compensated by crop insurance for losses caused by the drought, but can also dip into savings wisely built up over years of record income. With concerns about tight commodity supplies, crop prices, especially for corn and soybeans, have risen to record highs and it is with these record prices that crop insurance losses will be calculated. In fact, some producers may see record profits when crop insurance indemnities are calculated.

    Even with the drought, America’s agricultural economy remains strong.
    This strength and the glaring weakness of the federal budget – $15
    trillion in debt and trillion dollar deficits for the next decade – make it
    even more essential that Washington’s role in agricultural policy be
    reduced. Now is the time to roll back wasteful and market distorting
    taxpayer subsidies. FARRM does the exact opposite.

    Using the current drought as a pretext to bail out yet another sector of
    the U.S. economy while expanding the federal government’s role in the
    business decisions of agricultural enterprises is something taxpayers and
    our free-market economy cannot afford

    Again, we urge you to resist special interest calls to misuse the current
    drought to lock taxpayers into a trillion dollars worth of bad agriculture

    2012 U.S. Farm Bill

    [The 2012 U.S. Farm Bill (S. 3240, H.R. 6083, also known as the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2012 and the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2012) is a five-year agricultural policy omnibus bill. The bill authorizes, repeals, extends, and revises several aspects of U.S. agricultural policy and continues the United States’ history of agricultural subsidy. The bill was initially introduced in the United States Senate on May 24, 2012 and passed by that body on June 21. Having been passed by the Senate, the bill is currently being considered by the House of Representatives.]

In fact, it’s been Relublican Ag committee chair Frank Lucas who has been pushing for his leadership to pass the farm bill.

    That’s a fact….look it up if you dont believe me.

    The article you linked to specifically says that the House has NOT passed the farm bill. The bill passed was a short-term relief measure to assist famers. The bill itself is still being held up. Guess which party is holding it up? If you guessed “R” you win. The lack of aid to the country’s farmers during this drought can be laid directly at the feet of the Republican party. Good job, folks.
