    Re: Obama awarded a million dollar contract to his campaign donor

    That's 25 million, not a million.

    That's OK. It's "obama" (read in Chris Mathews' sexiest voice). I love you obama, you make my leg tingle.

    Re: Obama awarded a million dollar contract to his campaign donor

    He did promise during his campaign that he would not allow any no-bid contracts above $250,000.

    Another promise broken. Anyone surprised?

    If it looks like an Obama lie and it stinks like an Obama lie then it might just be another Obama lie.

    It's not about Bush anymore. It's about obama, what he promised and what he's doing.

    How long will "Bush" be the excuse ? It's been over a year now.

    When you lack the resources to make a cogent argument, use the Obamacard - blame Bush.

    Problem is, the Obama promised during his campaign that he would not allow any no-bid contracts above $250,000. Bush never made such a promise.

    You seem to be missing the issue but thanks for bringing up Bush again. By the way I don't remember Bush promising anything about no bid contracts. Anyway, to get this back on topic here is the Obama Promise (Lie)...

    Make Government Spending More Accountable and Efficient: Obama will ensure that federal contracts
    over $25,000 are competitively bid. Obama will also increase the efficiency of government programs
    through better use of technology, stronger management that demands accountability and by leveraging the
    government’s high-volume purchasing power to get lower prices.

    http://www.barackobama.com/pdf/issues/fiscal/ObamaPolicy_Fiscal.pdf

    I actually wanted to edit this because after looking at some of things he promised I begin to question his intelligence. How could anyone think that the Government could bid all contracts above 25k? Imagine the paperwork for the millions of jobs...it would be a nightmare. Then I realize that he is highly intelligent and he was relying on the total stupidity of the voters. He won. How does it feel?

    Bush isn't an excuse...not at all. He is the proof that those of you who stood by him, and are currently criticising Obama have no solid ground to stand on.

    Thats right...I recall all of you holding Bush to the fire when he LIED about WMDs then gave his buddies all no bid contracts to take your tax dollars and p!$$ all over it.


    Your double standards are straight up REDONCULOUS.

    Bush never promised he wouldn't do it,did he? Obama did and as usual he doesn't even attempt to hide his lies, he just does whatever he wants to and he does it boldly and blatantly. Obviously he truly doesn't give a flying * what the people who elected him think.
    None of this matters to his flock of course, but the rest of us who DO care have no choice but to sit here and suk on it, at least until 2012.

    This thread is about Obama awarding a $25 million contract to a buddy. If you haven't noticed, this thread isn't about George Bush. If you want to discuss the past, start your own thread. Everytime you pull the "but Bush..." cr*p, you might as well be shouting "I have nothing to add to the conversation!!!"

    Ah, yes. The final step of losing an argument. Resort to personal attacks.

    Here is my entire list of failed campaign promises made by Obama. Please keep in mind, since he has only been in office 1 year, this list is likely to grow much longer:

    • Impose windfall profit tax on oil companies – FAILED.
    • Stop or cut “‘pork barrel” spending – FAILED
    • Make Government spending efficient and provide more accountability.- FAILED
    • Eliminate income tax for Seniors (less than 50K annually)- FAILED.
    • Allow penalty free withdrawal from 401K in 2008 and 2009 – FAILED.
    • Provide a $3000 dollar tax credit for companies that hire new employees. – FAILED
    • Tougher rules against revolving door for lobbyists and former officials – FAILED.
    • Five days of review and comment before signing bills – FAILED.
    • Lobbyists will not work in the White House – FAILED.
    • Provide a public option within Health care Bill – FAILED.
    • Place a moratorium on home foreclosures – FAILED.
    • Eliminate capital gains tax for small business – FAILED.
    • Create a new $4000 American Opportunity tax credit – FAILED.
    • Expand earned income tax credit for workers – FAILED.
    • Lift ban on GAYS in the Military – FAILED.
    • Limit subsidies for agricultural business – FAILED.
    • Sign the “Freedom of Choice act” – FAILED.
    • Not use executive signing statements – FAILED.
    • Renegotiate NAFTA – FAILED.
    • Provide Universal Health Care with a public option.- FAILED
    • Reform and improve TSA policies to insure safe travel for airline passengers – FAILED.
    • Successfully encourage Iran to halt their nuclear weapons program. – FAILED.
    • Recall troops from Iraq and Afghanistan – FAILED
    • End no-bid contracts above $25,000 – FAILED
    • Be transparent throughout healthcare reform negotiations – FAILED
    • Close Guantanamo Bay prison within one year – FAILED

    If you can think of any others, please let me know so I can add them to the list.

    The only posts about Bush you'll find from me are Negative, but knock yourself out:rolleyes:

    Meanwhile, here's MY question: if you hated Bush for lying, as you said there's quite a list, then how can you support the same quality from Obama.

    That seems a tad hypocritical. ;)

    I dont support the lies at all. I'm 10,000x more critical of the man for not following through on about 1/1,000th of the BS that bush pulled.


    Y'all stayed quiet and let the man do what he wanted with no regard for spending, loss of life or revenue from tax dollars.

    Bush killed hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis, spent Trillions, gave his friends no bids for billions, and ya'll ( for the most part) sat there and sucked on your freedom fries.


    well, my advice to the collective 'you' is (Please be quiet - edited)...you did nothing before, so keep doing the same thing now. You are like someone who never voted who B!tchez about elected officials.

    Dude has been president for a year. I'll give him some time bfore I decalre "FAIL" on all these things., okay? Granted...spome have past the deadline, and some he has already gone back on....Time will tell. Bush has a body of work, and we can reflect upon it. I know you people love to do it with respect to Jimmy Carter and Clinton....but your beloved idiot, BUSH?


    How dare I?


    I suppose you also decalare baseball games over after the 2nd inning? Football games are completed at the end of the 1sr quarter. Books need not be read past the 1st or 2nd capter. Jason died in Friday the 13th part 2, so no need to watch the rest of them....


    Well... if thats the case....you missed out on Jason X ....


    and thats a crime all by itself.
