Obama Unveils Heads I Win, Tails Romney Loses Tax Calculator

On Friday the Obama campaign rolled out a tax calculator app online, in which you enter your annual income, marital status and number of dependents.

The first assumption is that the ‘real tax rate’ is the Bill Clinton rates so that they can continue the narrative that the present tax rates, the rates that have been in place for ten years continue to be characterized as the ‘Bush tax cuts’. The Democrats like to use the name ‘Bush’ because they think the whole country has the same boiling hatred for the former president as they do.

Also, characterizing the current tax rate as the ‘Bush tax cuts’ makes them an aberration from what the real rates should be, therefore cancelling them for the wealthiest Americans cannot be labeled as a tax increase. Which it is.

Let’s go to the tax calculator, shall we?

I put in married, no dependents, then started plugging in various incomes.

Here’s $30,000.

Has anybody heard Mitt Romney say he was going to raise taxes on the poor? Or on anybody, for that matter? I believe his position is to maintain the current rate and then eventually lower tax rates for everybody.

And how does Obama cut taxes for people who pay no taxes?

The $60,000, $90,000 and even $190,000 results in pretty much the same thing.

You see, Obama is the big tax cutter and Romney is the tax hiker.

I’ll give you a minute to stop laughing before proceeding over the arbitary $250,000 magic line in the sand where all of a sudden you’re rich and need to ‘pay your ‘fair share’.

But a funny thing happened. At that level Romney becomes a tax cutter, but Obama continues to be a tax cutter, too. What ever happened to punishing the rich?

$250,001?

How about $290,000, which is, you know, really, really rich?

There’s good old Obama cutting taxes on the rich again.

Lastly, let’s look at $780,000. Surely at this point the real punishment begins. I mean, come on. Couples earning that much money must be deserving of a tax hike. They’re part of the reviled 1%, aren’t they?

I guess the point we’re supposed to take away from this is that while good King Obama is benevolent enough to continue to provide tax relief for the very rich, Mitt Romney is lavishing them with tax cuts.

Or something.

Just a Little Reminder About Gas Prices

We need to remind the voters about this every day for the next 95 days. Hang the yoke of gas prices where it rightly belongs. Around Obama’s neck.

Ouch!

A picture is worth a thousand words.

That’s a devastating indictment of the feckless and wreckless Obama administration’s record. Romney needs to use this everywhere.

You Didn’t Built That, Woodshed Edition

OK. Lumberyard edition.

Business owner wanted to speak in ‘Chicago language’, something the president would understand.

Obama’s Tranformation of America Continues…Tea Party Candidate Ted Cruz Soon to Become a United States Senator

Not exactly the tranformational change that the anti-American Marxist envisioned, but his post electoral record remains firmly intact.

Because of Barack Hussein Obama’s assault on American values and institutions, conservatism is on the rise in America.

It started in Virginia and New Jersey in 2009, with a sweep of Governor, Lt. Governor and Attorney General in Virginia, with McDonnell, Bolling and Ken Cuccinelli cruising to a landslide, but also with Chris Christie in New Jersey.

On Christmas eve of 2009, in the dark of night, behind closed doors, Obamacare was passed against the wishes of the American people, leading to the electoral bloodbath of 2010 for for Democrats. Tea Party Republicans swept into the House of Representatives and the Senate also gained Rand Paul, Mike Lee, Ron Johnson and Marco Rubio, among others. In Wisconsin, Scott Walker became Governor and much mayhem ensued, but the leftist uprising was defeated soundly a little while back.

In the meantime…
Obama closed businesses, closed coal mines, closed coal fired power plants, shut down drilling in the Gulf, shut down the Keystone XL pipeline, engineered Operation Fast & Furious, watched in glee as the muslim world went ablaze, Obama insulted us, assaulted us and..now..the fundamental transformation is nearly complete.

Obama’s electoral fortunes have doomed him to ONE TERM status.

Barack, your Executive Orders are what finally did you in. When you displayed that you have no regard for the rule of law and showed more than an ankle of your dictatorial inclinations…….that was it. Even the passive citizen saw a danger in you. When you derided achievers in Roanoke with your ‘You didn’t build that’ schtick….it was over. When you did pillow talk with Russia, assuring Medvedev that you’ll have more flexibility after the election…it was over.

So, add Ted Cruz to the ranks of being the next Tea Party Senator who will be swept into office as the American people sweep more Democrats out of power in 98 days.

Oh.

And to the transformational president who changed America back into a conservative, (or at least not totally insane) nation, we owe you a twisted bit of gratitude, in a tangential way. As Usurper-in-Chief, you alarmed the sleeping electorate and showed us how very, very evil and destructive the left is and how quickly people of your persuasion can destroy what has taken centuries to build.

You’re finished, Benito.

Yeah. Obama. YOU built this.

And thank you. In a perverse way, you saved the nation.

Tito “The Builder” Munoz offended by Obama’s insulting remarks

Tito Munoz, who gained national notoriety during the 2008 Presidential election by calling out the main stream media for their failure to properly vet then candidate Barack Obama, is offended by the presidents recent remarks concerning Americans that have succeeded in building businesses. In a recent guest post on The Bearing Drift, Munoz said;

As a business owner, I was stunned to hear President Obama’s recent comments about people like me. Speaking here in Virginia, he said:

“If you’ve been successful, you didn’t get there on your own. You didn’t get there on your own. I’m always struck by people who think, well, it must be because I was just so smart. There are a lot of smart people out there. It must be because I worked harder than everybody else. Let me tell you something — there are a whole bunch of hardworking people out there…If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”

I couldn’t disagree more with the President’s remarks. And I know a thing or two about building—I work in the construction business, after all. I’ve been able to succeed the American way: through hard work, perseverance, and a lot of personal sacrifice and financial risk. Personally I found his remarks to be disrespectful and insulting.

Munoz, a member of Mitt Romney’s national Hispanic Steering Committee, “Juntos Con Romney”, also stated;

Indeed, President Obama’s neglect has resulted in painful realities for people across the country. Here in the Hispanic community, for example, we’re bearing the burden disproportionately, with unemployment at a staggering 11 percent. In Virginia’s construction industry alone, we’ve lost 26,500 jobs since this President took office. That’s not the change President Obama promised. And after three and a half years of his failed presidency, it’s time for a new direction.

Tito Munoz is the Owner of Deborn Construction, a small business located in Dale City, Va.

Here is a clip from Tito’s moving speech at the 9-12 Event in Washington DC 2010.

Obama on 41 straight months of unemployment over 8%, “Therefore, it is important not to read too much into any one monthly report…”

The Mitt Romney Press through the Obama Isn’t Working Blog points out that on 30 occasions since November of 2009 the Obama White House has provided similar guidance instructing concerned Americans not to be alarmed about the dismal employment numbers reported by the labor department each month. The fact is that the job destroying policies of this administration which were first credited with a jobless recovery (whatever the hell that is) are now very likely leading us into a double dip recession and this president has the audacity to tell us that the latest jobs report is a step in the right direction. Sounds like he is betting on America not reading too much into any one four year term.
