Obama Flips Flops on Off Shore Drilling

Obama Flip Flops on Gun Control (After the Supreme court ruling)
Obama Flip Flops on Public Funds on the Presidential Race (Not taking it)
Obama Flip Flops on the Iraqi (Saying the surge will not work, now saying it will work)
Obama Flip Flops on Taxing the Middle Class (First he says he will, now he says he wont)
Obama Flip Flops on Supporting his Pastor (First he does, then ousts him).

Now he flip flops on off shore drilling.

I swear Obama just looks at poll numbers then adjust his position. Look at his past voting history.

He flip flops more than Kerry did.

Obama

Time to consider your pocketbook:

CAPITAL GAINS TAX

MCCAIN:
0% on home sales up to $500,000 per home (couples). McCain does not propose any change in existing home sales income tax.

OBAMA:
28% on profit from ALL home sales

How does this affect you?

If you sell your home and make a profit, you will pay 28% of your gain on taxes. If you are heading toward retirement and would like to down-size your home or move into a retirement community, 28% of the money you make from your home will go to taxes. This proposal will adversely affect the elderly who are counting on the income from their homes as part of their retirement income.


DIVIDEND TAX
MCCAIN : 15% (no change)

OBAMA : 39.6%

How will this affect you?

If you have any money invested in stock market, IRA, mutual funds, college funds, life insurance, retirement accounts, or anything that pays or reinvests dividends, you will now be paying nearly 40% of the money earned on taxes if Obama becomes president. The experts predict that 'Higher tax rates on dividends and capital gains would crash the stock market, yet do absolutely nothing to cut the deficit.'

INCOME TAX (find your bracket)
MCCAIN (no changes)

Single making 30K - tax $4,500
Single making 50K - tax $12,500
Single making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 60K- tax $9,000
Married making 75K - tax $18,750
Married making 125K - tax $31,250

OBAMA (reverse all tax cuts)

Single making 30K - tax $8,400
Single making 50K - tax $14,000
Single making 75K - tax $23,250
Married making 60K - tax $16,800
Married making 75K - tax $21,000
Married making 125K - tax $38,750

Under Obama, your taxes will more than double!

How does this affect you? No explanation needed. This is pretty straight
forward.

INHERITANCE TAX

MCCAIN 0% (No change, Bush repealed this tax)

OBAMA Restore the inheritance tax

How does this affect you?

Many families have lost businesses, farms, ranches, and homes that have been in their families for generations because they could not afford the inheritance tax. Those willing their assets to loved ones will only lose them to these taxes.

NEW TAXES BEING PROPOSED BY OBAMA

New government taxes proposed on homes that are more than 2400 square feet.

New gasoline taxes (as if gas weren't high enough already)

New taxes on natural resources consumption (heating gas, water, electricity)

New taxes on retirement accounts, and last but not least....

New taxes to pay for socialized medicine so we can receive the same level of medical care as other third-world countries!!!

THE FOREGOING IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULD BE AWARE OF. . . IT SHOULD MAKE YOU THINK BEFORE YOU CAST YOUR VOTE IN NOVEMBER.

Please spread the word. This will catch a lot of families off guard.

It was a good flush tho. First it was bad that he was against offshore drilling. Then it was bad that he was for offshore drilling. There's so much pandering and votes hustling going on right now that who knows what either one of these clowns will do once elected. And it doesn't help that voters don't know what the fuck they want except to bicker.

Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand!

Changing your compass heading is the de facto standard in modern politics. It is a bi-partisan cancer that is becoming more and more ubiquitous. It sucks, but it's life on the hill.

McCain and Obama are guilty of political pandering. Let's just get that out of the way.

Which of these men do you trust the most to run this country? Which one do you think is really going to best address the two key issues for this election. And that is the cost of energy and the War in Iraq/Homeland Security.

#1 Energy

Liberal Democrats have already made it clear that they are not amenable to domestic drilling, which will reduce our dependence on foreign oil and drive down the cost to the end user. They are doing nothing to help address the nations energy concerns, instead are going on vacation. This BS green movement and the radicals who legislate by it make me green in gills. It's nauseating because it's an exaggeration of the truth for political gain. Obama is a hardcore leftist liberal who supports these believes. However, recently (because it is popular and there is public outcry) he is starting to capitulate to some degree on off-shore drilling.

#2 War/Security

We've all heard the recent campaign rhetoric about his bombastic claims of expunging executive orders. We all know his views on the war and what he plans to do once he takes office. We listened to how he wants to soften interrogation techniques of terrorists. He would be a sheep regarding Iran. He endorses driver licenses and ss# for illegal immigrants. That will intern only serve to enable the behavior and widen the problem. Illegal immigration poses a significant security concern. Our borders are as porous as Obama's plan for "change".

Simple for me. Both issues get an X from me and I move on to the next candidate. I realize that McCain's position on immigration is crap as well. BUT...at the end of the day I'll go with McCain. Lesser of two evils, ya know.

And this is just based on those two issues alone. Not the fact that he is a liar, racists, and a politically pandering greenhorn. Not the fact that he vilified his own grandmother in front of the entire country for the sake of a good sound bite for his black constituency. Sanctimony and lack of class aside, he's a great guy.

That is my two cents.....courtesy of your average run of the mill "typical white person".

It's all they've got, Denny. McCain has officially caught Obama in the polls, and he should be up by 15-20 points, according to his own campaign folks. The comparison of Obama to Britney Spears is pretty accurate. The only thing missing is for Obama to flash his snatch while getting into a car...

I'm not worried either way. After the last 48 hours or so, I just solidified my job out here for as long as I like. LOL
