Obama’s Lowlights (6/4/12)

Abortion - The 41% of Americans who now identify themselves as "pro-choice" is down from 47% last July and is one percentage point below the previous record low in Gallup trends, recorded in May 2009. Fifty percent now call themselves "pro-life," one point shy of the record high, also from May 2009.

Claire McCaskill – The Missouri Senator has failed to pay taxes on her personal plane for the second year.

Polls – A Washington Post poll found that 90 percent of Americans feel anything Romney or Obama did in High School will not play into their Presidential election decision.

National Security – Judicial Watch, an organization dedicated to fighting government corruption, has uncovered more than 200 documents that show the Obama administration gave Hollywood filmmakers major access to people and departments vital to national security and close to the Osama bin Laden raid.

Michelle Obama – The First Lady is off on a media tour to promote her new book on gardens. Michelle is already the most televised First Lady in history.

DOJ - The Department of Justice Civil Rights Division is forcing female students at the University of Arkansas to allow men into their restrooms.

Spending – The Obama administration is claiming federal spending is down under his watch “Although there was a big stimulus bill under Obama, federal spending is rising at the slowest pace since Dwight Eisenhower brought the Korean War to an end in the 1950s.” However, the claim relies on statistics cherry-picked from different sources and, tellingly, uses CBO projections rather than actual outlays, and lets the President off the hook for FY 2009 - a budget that was passed by a Democratic Congress and signed into law by President Obama.

Jobs - The American job market is no place for students as the number of employed high schoolers has hit its lowest level in more than 20 years, according to new figures from the National Center for Education Statistics. What’s worse, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics for the first time in history, there are now more unemployed Americans who attended at least some college than people who only graduated high school or dropped out of high school

Bain Capital - Despite Team Obama's continued attacks on Mitt Romney's past associations with Bain Capital, they aren't willing to give back $7500 in campaign donations from....Bain Capital executives.

Elizabeth Warren – In a recent interview she defended her so called Native American heritage by claiming her mother told her she was Cherokee. Meanwhile, the Boston Globe ran a front page article that shows Warren lied about her heritage and Harvard Law exploited Warren’s claim to promote their diversity numbers.

DNC – According to several media sources Obama wants to fire the gaffe prone Debbie Wasserman Schultz from the head of the DNC.

Tax Credits – Obama is campaigning for tax credits for Green Energy companies. Why don’t we simply do away with tax credits for any group, organization, or company – simplify the tax code and cut corporate taxes for all?


  1. "Why don’t we simply do away with tax credits for any group, organization, or company – simplify the tax code and cut corporate taxes for all?"

    That's a great question!!

  2. CW, we need tax reform in a big way - a way that will help eliminate lobbying for special interests.
