Obama Administration: more of the same.

It isn’t just Obama who regards himself as American Royalty and has no respect for Americans’ hard-earned dollars— others in his Administration feel the same way. “As Leon E. Panetta ends a decades-long Washington career capped by his service as defense secretary, he has said repeatedly that he is ready to get back to his family’s bucolic walnut ranch off the central coast of California. But while serving as CIA director and defense secretary for the past four years, he has been commuting back to Monterey, Calif., nearly every weekend on the taxpayers’ dime. Even though Mr. Panetta acknowledges traveling to California on a near-weekly basis, he has declined to say exactly how many trips he has made and has failed to respond to inquiries asking for copies of receipts of his reimbursements to the federal government for the personal travel… Each flight home and back cost the Pentagon an estimated $32,000.” Not surprisingly, Defense Secretary Panetta’s “repeated arguments about the need to get away from the daily environment and rigors of the job has offended some active-duty servicemen who have endured repeated deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan, although they said so only privately out of fear of reprisal.” 

What a surprise: Obama/Biden lied.

Joe Biden during the 2012 presidential campaign: “We are leaving [Afghanistan] in 2014. Period.”

Barack Obama during the 2012 presidential campaign: “We are bringing our troops home from Afghanistan. And I’ve set a timetable. We will have them all out of there by 2014.”

But less than one month after Obama won re-election, it’s been revealed that the U.S. WILL in fact be leaving troops in Afghanistan after 2014— and we’re not talking about a small number, either: 10,000 American troops will stay in Afghanistan.

Democrats’ last hope: Disenfranchise military voters.

Thanks to Obama’s Department of Defense, thousands of voter ballots are unlikely to reach military service members until after the November 6th election.

If the Democratic Party actually cared about democracy and freedom, it would argue that these military voters should be able to vote via e-mail or fax the same way that voters in the mostly-Democratic precincts in Hurricane Sandy-hit states are being allowed to vote. The Democratic Party is committing rampant voter fraud in this election– it’s all over the news, out in the open. On Election Day, Romney will need to win by enough votes to overcome the “fraud” margin.

Obama is not presidential.

In the 3rd Presidential Debate, Obama said: “I think Governor Romney maybe hasn’t spent enough time looking at how our military works. You mentioned the navy, for example, and that we have fewer ships than we did in 1916. Well, governor, we also have fewer horses and bayonets because the nature of our military’s changed.”  Actually, the military still uses horses and bayonets (which were even used during the invasion of Afghanistan)– in fact, bayonets are standard use for Marines!  Obama has been rude, patronizing, mocking, and insulting to his opponent throughout this campaign.

Obama is so out-of-control that he referenced stage-three cancer in attacking Romney, saying that Romney has “at least stage-three Romnesia.”  Obama also gave a Rolling Stone magazine interview in which he called Romney a “bullshitter.”

On Obama’s “official home on Tumblr” (http://barackobama.tumblr.com/post/34165736532/sums-it-up) this belitting image of Romney in a dunce hat was posted:

This image shows the nature of Obama’s campaign; and it is yet another example of how divisive the Obama Administration has been during the past 4 years.  In contrast, Romney worked across the aisle in a bipartisan manner with an 87% Democratic Party legislature while he was governor of Massachusetts.
