Epic fail for the epic liar attempting to lie Obama back into office.

Bubba is the 2nd best gift behind Joe Biden.

With Obama’s spending, all races will go to the back of the line. Love how these liberal idiots play the race card with everything.

From Beltway Confidential:

Congress must raise taxes on the wealthy “because there just isn’t enough to go around,” Housing and Urban Development Secretary Shaun Donovan told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute today.

Shaun Donovan = ACORN goon. When will Donovan speak to the Congressional Caucasian Caucus? Oops, there isn’t one.

“Latino growth has meant that often they’re at the back of the line for housing assistance or other things,” Donovan said during CHCI’s annual Public Policy Conference this morning at the Ronald Reagan Building in D.C. “And the fundamental problem here (in part) is, are we going to continue to invest in those things? And if we continue to cut the budget for Section 8 housing and public housing and a whole range of other things — if we don’t fix this fiscal cliff in a fair way that actually asks higher-income Americans to pay their fair share — Latinos are going to have to continue to wait in the back of the line, because there just isn’t enough to go around. And that’s a fundamental problem in our housing system, but it’s a much bigger problem that is a huge issue when we make a decision about what our investments are going to be in Congress.”

Just don’t ask the 49% who pay ZERO in federal taxes to pay their “fair share.” Imagine how many Hispanics could have been helped with those billions Obama gave to his bundlers in his green energy scheme.

Donovan’s remarks should play well among the Latino community if the polling data provided before he spoke holds true about how Latinos believe the deficit and economic crises should be addressed.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Christian-oriented Hobby Lobby Stores Inc. filed a federal lawsuit Wednesday challenging a mandate in the nation’s health care overhaul law that requires employers to provide coverage for the morning-after pill and similar drugs.

The lawsuit by the Oklahoma City-based chain claims the government mandate is forcing the company’s owners “to violate their deeply held religious beliefs under threat of heavy fines, penalties and lawsuits.” Failure to provide the drugs in the company’s health insurance plan could lead to fines of up to $1.3 million a day, the company said.

“By being required to make a choice between sacrificing our faith or paying millions of dollars in fines, we essentially must choose which poison pill to swallow,” David Green, Hobby Lobby CEO and founder, said in a statement. “We simply cannot abandon our religious beliefs to comply with this mandate.”

The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City, alleges the Health and Human Services mandate is unconstitutional and requests an injunction to prohibit it from being enforced. Hobby Lobby is self-insured and will be required to comply with the mandate by Jan. 1, the start of its health insurance plan year.

“We are confident that the court will act quickly,” said Kyle Duncan, general counsel for the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty in Washington, which represents Hobby Lobby. Duncan said 27 other lawsuits have been filed nationwide over the mandate, mostly by nonprofit groups.

“This mandate violates the religious liberty of millions of Americans,” Duncan said. “The government has turned a deaf ear to the rights of business owners.”

Romney should demand for the release of Biden’s psychology records. Biden is brain-dead and suffers from Alzheimer’s.

Of course there is liberal media bias and their bias continues to be exposed.

From PJTatler:

If you still harbor any doubt that mainstream media journalists are in the tank for Obama, wonder no more. Anopen mic caught several of them coordinating strategy and gaming out how to pester Mitt Romney about his statement Tuesday, in which he called the Obama administration’s response to the attacks in Egypt and Libya “disgraceful.”

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: …pointing out that the Republicans… *unintelligible* …Obama….

CBS REPORTER: That’s the question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: *unintelligible*

CBS REPORTER: Yeah that’s the question. I would just say do you regret your question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Your question? Your statement?

CBS REPORTER: I mean your statement. Not even the tone, because then he can go off on…

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: And then if he does, if we can just follow up and say ‘but this morning your answer is continuing to sound…’ – *becomes unintelligble*

CBS REPORTER: You can’t say that..

**Later**

CBS REPORTER: I’m just trying to make sure that we’re just talking about, no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question.

UNIDENTIFIED REPORTER: Do you stand by your statement or regret your statement?

Two rounds of quantitative easing did nothing for the economy or job creation, yet Fed Reserve idiots think a third round will do the trick.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — The Federal Reserve’s policymaking committee is meeting for the next two days, and it is widely expected to announce a third round of quantitative easing, known as QE3.

But even if the Fed launches that third bond-buying spree, it is unlikely to have a major positive effect on the economy.

Bernanke promised not to monetize the debt, yet this will be the third round of devaluing the dollar.

The impact would be “microscopic” at best, said Catherine Mann, a Brandeis University finance professor and former Federal Reserve economist.

“The Fed continues to want the economy to grow faster and specifically, to grow more jobs, but the ability of QE to do that is extraordinarily limited,” she said.

The Fed could buy Treasury bonds, mortgage backed securities, or both. Economists at Goldman Sachs predict QE3 could total $50 billion in purchases a month, and the end date could be left up in the air, depending on the strength of the economy.

The hope is that such a program will lower interest rates further, translating into cheap borrowing for businesses, consumers and homebuyers. In turn, more lending could lead to more hiring.

Here’s the problem though: The more easing that the Fed does, the less impact it has on the broader economy. Even the Fed admits as much.

“There may be some diminishing returns and that would be a consideration we’d have to look at as we try to analyze what our options are,” Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said in June.

I’m sure Obama and Holder will be ready to prosecute Sebelius for breaking the law. Under the Hatch Act, violators are to be removed. Think that will happen?

From Politico:

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated the Hatch Act, which prohibits certain political activity, when she made “extemporaneous partisan remarks” during a speech in her official capacity earlier this year, the U.S. Office of Special Counsel said Wednesday.

The office sent an official report and Sebelius’s response to the president on Wednesday.

The special counsel’s office said it “found no evidence that Secretary Sebelius made any other political statements in her official capacity.”

During a speech to the Human Rights Campaign Gala in North Carolina in February, Sebelius said North Carolina Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton “needs to be the next governor of North Carolina.” She also outlined the Obama administration’s accomplishments so far and said: “One of the imperatives is to make sure that we not only come together here in Charlotte to present the nomination to the president, but we make sure that in November he continues to be president for another four years.”

The Office of Special Counsel said she made the political remarks in her capacity as a federal employee and thus violated the Hatch Act. If  Sebelius had made those remarks in her personal capacity, they would have been acceptable.

Then Sebelius attempt to lie and relabel her event…

After that appearance, Sebelius had the event reclassified from official to political, and done in her personal capacity, in an attempt to avoid a Hatch Act violation. She and HHS also reimbursed the Treasury Department for all the costs associated with the trip. At least some of the cost  was picked by the Democratic National Committee, according to the OSC.

But the OSC said the reclassification doesn’t mean the violation didn’t occur, particularly because the gala was advertised using Sebelius’s HHS title.
