Obama’s Lowlights (5/21/12)

West Virginia - Over four in ten West Virginia Democrats voted for a man imprisoned in Texas over Barack Obama in the state's presidential primary. The felon actually carried at least ten counties.

Brian Terry – Congress passed the Brian A. Terry Act to name the Border Security Station in Southern Arizona after Terry who was killed with a AK47 used in the Fast and Furious Program.

Post Office - The financially struggling U.S. Postal Service sought Wednesday to tamp down concern over wide-scale cuts, revealing it will seek to keep thousands of rural post offices open with shorter hours.

Gay Marriage – The President finally came out in favor of gay marriage. In the past, Obama had openly admitted he struggled with accepting gay marriage. What’s worse, Obama injected his daughters into his reasoning for coming out in favor of gay marriage. Make no mistake; everything Obama does is for a one reason – campaign contributions to get reelected.

Arizona - Federal authorities (led by Eric Holder) said they plan to sue an Arizona county sheriff (Joe Arpaio) and his office over allegations of civil rights violations, including the racial profiling of Hispanics.

The Occupy Movement – The new DC Occupy office space, provided by SEIU, is promoting vandalism because they say it is not the same as violence.

Federal Budget - The GOP-controlled House has passed legislation to replace a looming 10% cut to the military budget with cuts to domestic programs like food stamps and health care.

Mitt Romney Scandal – The desperate Left has not been able to find any dirt on Romney so they tried criticizing the way the Romney family carted their dog around on vacation. Since that gained no traction, now they are claiming that Romney bullied a gay student in high school in 1965. Reports by liberals have since been revealed as factually incorrect by the family of student Romney supposedly bullied.

EPA – Congress is pushing for the right to vet and choose EPA officials.

Green Energy - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is considering loosening regulations on the killing of bald eagles, the national bird of the United States, to accommodate the development of wind energy sources.

Elizabeth Warren - According to Penn’s 2005 “Minority Equity Report,” it too identified Warren, who taught there from 1987 to 1995, as a minority. Warren was also considered a minority when she was both a student and professor at Harvard. No worries for Warren since she has a few 99 percenters Matt Damon and Ben Affleck holding campaign fundraisers for her.

Tax Code - Eduardo Saverin, the billionaire co- founder of Facebook Inc. (FB), renounced his U.S. citizenship before an initial public offering that values the social network at as much as $96 billion, a move that may reduce his tax bill. Renouncing citizenship is becoming common due to the unfair and convoluted U.S. tax code.

Oil Reserves - “The Green River Formation--an assemblage of over 1,000 feet of sedimentary rocks that lie beneath parts of Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming--contains the world's largest deposits of oil shale,”Anu K. Mittal, the GAO’s director of natural resources and environment said in written testimony submitted to the House Science Subcommittee on Energy and Environment.
