  1. Love her or hate her she always has some good ones.

    “In the media room, journalists cheered Obama’s cheap shot about Romney being rich, according to The Washington Times. Say, who did the Democrats run for president right before Obama? That would be the richest man in the U.S. Senate, John Kerry. But liberals believe Kerry acquired his fortune more honestly than by building businesses and creating jobs. He married a rich woman. ”

    “He explained that the price of gasoline was $1.80 when he took office because the economy was in the toilet. Apparently, prices have spiked to more than $4 a gallon because all Americans are back at work now and making big bucks! ”

    “Jones was right: Since Obama has been president, everything you own — your home, pension, savings accounts, weekly paychecks — are all worth less.”

  3. Here is an interesting fact check.

    The fact that people buy the class warfare crap from most Democrats is amazing. Rich guys accusing rich guys of being rich would be funny if it wasn’t so sad and counterproductive.


    One of the many tense moments in the second presidential debate turned on a new topic in the race: President Barack Obama’s pension account.

    Here’s how it came up: Early in the face-off, Obama scoffed at Mitt Romney’s pledge to crack down on unfair trading practices by China, saying Romney is currently invested in companies “that are building surveillance equipment for China to spy on its own folks.”

    Romney later explained that, yes, he understands that his blind trust has invested in foreign firms, including companies in China. Then he confronted Obama.

    Romney: “Mr. President, have you looked at your pension? Have you looked at your pension?”

    Obama: “You know, I don’t look at my pension. It’s not as big as yours so it doesn’t take as long. I don’t check it that often.”

    Romney: “Let me give you some advice. Look at your pension. You also have investments in Chinese companies. You also have investments outside the United States. You also have investments through a Caymans trust.”
