2009 Auto Company Loans Yield New Jobs, New U.S. Investment and are PAID BACK!

In 2009, President Barack Obama and the Democrats (and Canada, too-Thanks, eh?) took the brave and bold step to LOAN the U.S. auto companies the money they needed to restructure. The Republicans, on the other hand, wanted the U.S. auto companies to FAIL. Both Mitt
Romney and Tim Pawlenty stated in 2009 that just "writing a check" to GM and Chrysler was "the wrong thing to do" and would hasten the failure of those companies.
Well, thank goodness the Republicans weren't in charge and didn't make that decision. Both GM and Chrysler are paying back their loans in full and with interest, have successfully restructured their companies, and are HIRING THOUSANDS in addition to the TENS OF THOUSANDS of jobs saved or added so far.
Romney and Pawlenty want to be President and say that President Obama doesn't make "the hard decisions necessary" to be our country's leader. Oh really? Ask GM and Chrysler, and while you're at it--ask Osama bin Laden about the "hard decisions" our President has made to SAVE JOBS AND COMPANIES and KEEP US SAFE. GM and Chrysler are adding jobs and investing in new plants and R & D right here in the good ol' U.S.A. and bin Laden is fish food.

Romney and Pawlenty were wrong then, and they're wrong for America now.

Please re-tweet and Like this Video--spread the word far and wide to remind America who the REAL LEADER of America is.

Mass Walkout @ Michigan Law School Graduation #LGBT

The keynote speaker at the 2011 University of Michigan Law School Graduation was anti-gay U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH). Why, except that he is a U-M alum, was the question asked by many.
A gay-rights group passed out rainbow ribbons and a protest sheet to those enteringHill Auditorium, asking for a massive but dignified walkout when Sen. Portman spoke.
Sen. Portman was the 2nd of three speakers, and when he was introduced, at least 1/3 of the audience and of the graduates silently walked out; returning only after Senator Portman finished his speech. It kept the ceremony dignified for the sake of the grads, but made the point that many support gay rights and are against the philosophies of Senator Portman.
The 3rd speaker, a Law School graduate, explained that he and many others wore rainbow tassels in support of their LGBT classmates.
It was awesome.

Giving Credit Where Credit Due

P938

Right after 9-11, former President Bush went into Afghanistan looking for Osama Bin Laden. However, shortly after getting us into an unpaid for war, Mr. Bush quickly moved on to his REAL target: Iraq and Saddam Hussein. The fact that neither had anything to do with 9-11 was irrelevant. By 2004, Bush admitted that he "didn't really think about bin Laden much". By then, of course, Bush had started another unnecessary and unpaid for war in Iraq.
So now that bin Laden has been killed, who are most of the Republicans and even some mainstream media trying to credit? Bush of course.
Let's be clear: the ONLY President who planned, oversaw, and completed the killing of bin Laden was #44: Barack Hussein Obama. George W. Bush had NOTHING to do with this. He deserves NO credit whatsoever. NONE.
President Obama promised he would get bin Laden and he did. PROMISE KEPT.
