This morning, President Obama unveiled a new video and his new campaign slogan….”Forward”.  Hmm…  Ok, I’m just going to say it.  This is one of the most ridiculous slogans I’ve ever heard.  Forward?  That’s it?  How many staffers did it take to come up with that one?  Maybe he should have stuck with WTF (Winning the Future)….at least it was catchy.  But I digress…

Aside from the hokey name, let’s dig a little deeper.  This slogan sums up Obama’s mindset.  He doesn’t want people to look back, only move forward.  And why is that?  Maybe it’s because his record is abysmal.  His biggest accomplishment, Obamacare, is a complete disaster.  It barely passed, and the majority of Americans have been against it from the get-go.  While this was touted as such a wonderful accomplishment, I find it so interesting that Obama rarely even brings it up.  If it was so monumental, why hasn’t he been riding that wave for the last 3 years?  Simple.  We don’t want it, and he knows it.  What he claimed was a deficit neutral bill, has ballooned to nearly $2 trillion, and is still growing.  While not yet fully implemented, it’s already causing insurance premiums to increase and is driving small businesses to close their doors.  Due to decreasing Medicare reimbursement costs, many doctors are no longer taking Medicare patients or are retiring from their practices altogether.  This, along with increased regulations, is causing medical students to rethink even getting into the field.  The result will be a shortage of doctors and rationed care….exactly what we’ve been predicting since the beginning of the health care debate.

What are Obama’s other accomplishments?  Any bill that has been passed into law only equals more regulation, more spending, and less freedom, with no real solutions.  We’re $15 TRILLION in debt, housing prices are still in the tank, food and gas prices are still rising, and unemployment is still over 8%.  The number of food stamp recipients has increased to nearly 45 million, with a 135% increase in costs over the last 4 years (with Obama looking to add even more people to the program).

The only thing we have to look “forward” to with a 2nd Obama term is more of the same.

But Obama does have one thing right.  We should look forward….to November…when we can Vote. Him. Out.

The Indiana primaries are only two weeks away, and one of the most important races  in the state is between incumbent U.S. Senator, Richard Lugar and conservative tea party favorite, Indiana Treasurer Richard Mourdock.    While Lugar carried a double digit lead for some time, the gap has now closed and the two candidates are in a virtual dead heat, with some polls even reporting a 5% lead for Mourdock.

Why is this race so important?  For starters, Richard Lugar, at age 80, has been a senator for 36 years.  He’s a career politician, who is completely disconnected from the people he represents.  In fact, Senator Lugar does not even reside in the state of Indiana, and has not lived in the state since 1977.  How can he effectively represent the needs of a state that he has not lived in for 35 years?

One would think this would be enough to disqualify Lugar from running for re-election. Given the fact that he was still registered at an address he sold in 1977, the whole situation reeks of fraud to me.  However, there is a loophole in the Indiana law that allows him to register, using the address of another property that the family owns and manages.

Lugar is a very moderate Republican, considered a centrist by some, a RINO by others.  I prefer the latter.  Despite his claim to support the Second Amendment, he has continued to vote against the rights of gun owners, and currently holds an “F” rating with the NRA, as well as Gun Owners of America, (both groups are endorsing Richard Mourdock) .   In 2006, Lugar was endorsed by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, a national gun ban group.  Lugar refused to stand with his colleagues in opposing any United Nations Arms Trade Treaty that would restrict civilian firearms ownership.   Lugar supported Obama’s appointment of Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, who are both anti-gun, to the Supreme Court.  (Read more on Lugar’s anti-gun voting record.)

In addition to his abysmal record on gun rights, Lugar has also shown his lack of fiscal conservatism, by voting for bailouts of Fannie & Freddie, TARP, the auto industry, and for the 2008 stimulus bill.

Throughout his political career, he has proven himself to be a “big government” supporter as well, voting to create the Department of Energy, and to expand the power of the Food and Drug Administration, as well as support legislation to ban the incandescent light bulb, impose massive new regulations on the energy sector, expand mandates on cars, and increase taxpayer subsidies on inefficient technologies.  (See more of Lugar’s key votes, via Freedomworks.)

It is also important to note that Senator Lugar was one of only nine Senate Republicans who refused to sign on to a legal brief challenging the constitutionality of Obamacare.

Lugar’s record speaks for itself.   Not only has the senator been dubbed “Obama’s favorite Republican”, Lugar actually appeared in a campaign ad for Obama in 2008.  He’s weak on illegal immigration, supporting amnesty and Obama’s DREAM Act, and has opposed various efforts to secure the border.  Lugar also opposed legislation that would prohibit government funding to organizations that provide abortions.  The list goes on.

Senator Lugar does not represent the interests of most Hoosiers, or any conservatives.  It’s time for him to go.

It’s tough being the underdog in any fight. But if a group of underdogs get together and work together, they can win. That’s the American people up against big government. We the People are fighting the political class.

The federal government has become too big, too bureaucratic and too controlling of our everyday lives, and it wants to control us even more every day, with every session of Congress. As a result, We the People are losing more and more of our liberties every day.

This administration is trying to tell us which cars to drive, which light bulbs to buy, what foods to eat, where not to take a vacation, how much health care we can have, what to believe, who to believe, how to live, how to spend our money, when to die, where to build a new plant for a business and what fairness ought to be – using our money!

Are we asleep, or just plain dumb and stupid?

His approval rating is in the toilet. His re-election numbers are abysmal for an incumbent president at this point in his term. He has stated that he is giving up on white, working-class Americans. The economy, regardless of how he tries to talk it up, is lethargic at best. His “foreign policy” consists of repeating the line “(fill in name of country) is one of our best allies and punches above its weight.” Independents are deserting him in droves.

Obamacare is still unpopular, and his numbers will fall even further after it is declared unconstitutional. Of course, the Obama attack machine (campaign and left-wing media) will immediately go to town after the Supreme Court announces its decision and try to whip up the base with frightening rants about the end of Roe v. Wade being just one vote away. Even if this ploy works, independents will not be pulled over to his side in big enough numbers to stop the slide. The Catholic Church has taken off the gloves over BO’s attempt to force them to provide insurance that includes coverage for abortion-inducing drugs. They are attacking him from the pulpit and with a television commercial that is as hard-hitting as anything produced by James Carville.

Despite tireless claims by Democrats that Republicans are waging a war on women, it’s become quite evident that the true offenders are, in fact, the Democrat party, and more specifically, liberal women.

While most would think a true “feminist” would praise the likes of Nikki Haley, Sarah Palin, and Michelle Bachmann, for their successful balance of career and family, the truth is that these women are demonized by those whose very mission is to stand up and fight for the equal rights of women.

Today, we have the latest example of the liberal hypocrisy towards Republican/conservative women.  Last night, Democrat strategist, Hillary Rosen made a dig at  presidential candidate, Mitt  Romney’s wife, Ann, stating that she “has never worked a day in her life.”  Ann Romney quickly responded, tweeting “I made a choice to stay home and raise five boys.  Believe me, it was hard work.”

In an effort to head off the political firestorm, Obama staffers quickly distanced themselves from Rosen, calling her comments “inappropriate and offensive” and saying  the comments “were wrong and family should be off limits. She should apologize.”  Even Michelle Obama and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz denounced her remarks.

Despite the Democrat’s claims that they look out for the rights of women, the facts prove that women have been negatively affected by the Obama presidency.   Records show that women in the Obama White House make considerably less than their male counterparts.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, since Obama took office, the unemployment rate for women has increased from 7.0% to 8.1%.  In addition, the number of female employees in the workforce dropped by 683,000, and the poverty rate among women increased from 13.9% in 2009 to 14.5% in 2011.  The poverty rate is 25.6% among black women and 25% among Hispanic women, and more than 40% of single mothers live in poverty.  (View the full research briefing.)  Given these facts, it truly puzzles me that any woman would support this president.

While Rosen’s attitude and comments are completely unacceptable, though not at all surprising, I must admit I find the entire situation quite comical. Watching the Democrats scramble on this one shows they know this phony “war on women” argument just isn’t resonating with the American people, and Rosen’s comments guaranteed it won’t play to their advantage in November.

REMEMBER THIS LADY!!!

Look at this lady – Let us never forget!
The world hasn’t just become wicked…it’s always been wicked.
The prize doesn’t always go to the most deserving.

Irena Sendler
Died 12 May 2008 (aged 98)
Warsaw, Poland

During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw ghetto, as a plumbing/sewer specialist.

She had an ‘ulterior motive’.

She KNEW what the Nazi’s plans were for the Jews (being German).

Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids).

She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto.

The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.

During her time…
