Mayor Bloomberg & Howard Schultz Endorse Obama

We know Richard Bloomberg & Howard Schultz (starbucks, founder) have their fingers on the pulse of America's economy. They're both entrepreneurs who have a unique ability to gage the economic trends through their billion dollar companies. They both believe that Obama is putting us on the right track & that he's saved this country from suffering through the 2nd Great Depression. If endorsements aren't enough here are just a couple of the Obama Administration's accomplishments:

 1. The first bill President Obama signed was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, to help women fight back when they don't get equal pay for equal work.

 2. His Recovery Act supported millions of jobs and helped to stave off a second Great Depression.

 3. He pushed for and won middle-class tax cuts that benefitted every American worker, and saved the typical family $3,600 in taxes over the last four years.

 4. President Obama rescued the auto industry, and now GM and Chrysler are healthier than they've ever been. The American auto industry has added nearly a quarter of a million jobs since June 2009 -- and they most likely wouldn't exist right now without President Obama's leadership.

 5. He doubled funding for Pell Grants, helping to make college more affordable for nearly 10 million families.

 6. His student loan reform ended billions in subsidies to banks serving as middlemen and reinvested those savings directly into students.

 7. The President established the American Opportunity Tax Credit, worth up to $10,000 over four years of college.

 8. His Race to the Top Initiative helped spur nearly every state to raise academic standards.

 9. His tax cuts, social-welfare programs, and economic policies lifted nearly 7 million Americans above the federal poverty line in 2010.

 10. President Obama has signed 18 tax cuts for small businesses since taking office.

 11. We've seen 5.2 million new private-sector jobs over the last 31 months.

 12. The unemployment rate is at the lowest level since President Obama took office.

 13. Health care reform -- passed after decades of failed attempts by every previous President -- provides affordable health coverage to every American and will lower premiums by an average of $2,000 per family by 2019.

 14. Obamacare expanded access to lifesaving preventive care such as cancer screenings and immunizations with no out-of-pocket costs for 54 million Americans.

 15. Obamacare ends insurance discrimination against the 129 million Americans with pre-existing conditions.

 16. Because of Obamacare, over 3 million more young adults have health insurance today than would if the new law hadn't passed.

 17. The parents of over 17 million children with pre-existing conditions no longer have to worry that their children will be denied coverage.

 18. President Obama has ordered the overhaul of federal government regulations to make them smarter, practical, and more efficient. Just a fraction of these commonsense initiatives will help save businesses $10 billion in the next five years alone.

 19. His historic investments in clean energy have helped more than double the amount of electricity we obtain from wind and solar sources and helped increase biofuel production to its highest level in history.

 20. President Obama is doubling fuel efficiency standards, which will save drivers more than $8,000 at the gas pump, not to mention lessen the impact of automobiles on our environment.

 21. President Obama has taken unprecedented action to address climate change, reaching historic international agreements to curb carbon emissions, and taking action here at home to reduce carbon pollution from our vehicles and promote clean energy production.

 22. He has taken historic action to protect our environment -- signing one of the largest expansions of protected wilderness in a generation and putting in place standards to reduce toxic air pollution that will save thousands of lives.

 23. President Obama fought for and won landmark Wall Street reform that reins in the abuses that led to the financial crisis and ends the era of taxpayer bailouts and "too big to fail."

 24. Wall Street reform created the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the nation's first federal agency focused solely on consumer financial protection -- and the Bureau is already protecting families from unfair and abusive financial practices from Wall Street banks and shadowy corners of the financial industry.

 25. As part of President Obama's commitment to transparency, the White House has posted its visitor records online for the first time ever.

 26. President Obama's all-of-the-above approach to energy has helped cut the United States' dependence on foreign oil to its lowest level in 20 years.

 27. President Obama responsibly ended the war in Iraq.

 28. He announced a plan to end the war in Afghanistan and transition security responsibility to the Afghan people.

 29. President Obama sent the largest security assistance package to Israel in history and funded the Iron Dome system, which is protecting Israeli homes and schools from rocket attacks.

 30. President Obama rallied the international community to implement the toughest sanctions on Iran in history.

 31. Through the President's historic increases in Veterans Affairs funding, he has expanded and improved healthcare and job training access for our returning veterans.

 32. President Obama negotiated the New START Treaty with Russia to reduce the number of nuclear weapons in both countries. At the same time, he also secured commitments from dozens of other countries to lock down nuclear materials.

 33. His administration naturalized 11,146 military service members as U.S. citizens in 2010; more than in any year since 1955.

 34. President Obama set a bold new plan for the future of NASA space exploration, using the skill and ability of the private sector for short trips to the International Space Station, while building a new vehicle for exploration of distant space, and doing everything in his power to support the economy on Florida's Space Coast.

 35. President Obama recognizes that tourism is one of America's largest economic engines; he's worked to encourage international visitors to come here, maintaining our security while keeping millions of Americans in good, paying jobs.

 36. He has affirmed his personal support of marriage equality, directed the Justice Department to stop defending DOMA in federal courts, and took the practical and compassionate step of extending hospital visitation rights to same-sex partners.

 37. He fought for and won the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, allowing gay and lesbian members of the military to serve openly for the first time in history.

 38. When Congress failed to fix our broken immigration system, his administration did everything in its power to improve it, streamlining the legal immigration process and announcing a policy that lifts the shadow of deportation from hard working young immigrants brought to the U.S. as children.

 39. Oh, and he gave the order to send troops in after Osama Bin Laden -- and has decimated al-Qaeda's senior leadership.

  1. My pipe my pipe my booty and my pipe!November 1, 2012 at 4:28 PM

    Hello , everyone Id like to say I endorse TINA! Not Turner just plain OL TINA!

  2. Nice article, and reassuring. I hate thinking that four undecideds in Ohio are about to make Mitt Romney our next president.

  3. So this is what WeHo Confidential is down to?. Halloween last night--no hot pics of guys on the Blvd. Not even worth the click to come here any longer--call me what you wish. Who cares. You've lost all relevance.

  4. It is a disgrace that that nigger is in office right now. Keep America white! Black people have infiltrated our company, whatever happened to slavery? Vote Romney to help restore our country back to the way it should have been. Barrack and Michelle Obama should be picking cotton!

  5. CBS News has learned that during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, the Obama Administration did not convene its top interagency counterterrorism resource: the Counterterrorism Security Group, (CSG).
    "The CSG is the one group that's supposed to know what resources every agency has. They know of multiple options and have the ability to coordinate counterterrorism assets across all the agencies," a high-ranking government official told CBS News. "They were not allowed to do their job. They were not called upon."

    Information shared with CBS News from top counterterrorism sources in the government and military reveal keen frustration over the U.S. response on Sept. 11, the night ambassador Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans were killed in a coordinated attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya.


    Counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help in the attack.


    Absent coordination from Counterterrorism Security Group, a senior US counterterrorism official says the response to the crisis became more confused. The official says the FBI received a call during the attack representing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and requesting agents be deployed....


    Another senior counter terrorism official says a hostage rescue team was alternately asked to get ready and then stand down throughout the night, as officials seemed unable to make up their minds.

  6. "CBS News also added that, on a related note, no one cares about Benghazi. Except for fidgety Republicans desperate to make a mountain out of a mole hill, and Al Quaeda - both groups often using the same tactics to subjugate minorities in the name of God.

    Meanwhile, in other news... Mitt Romney has yet to provide to the press more than two years of his tax returns, even though his *own father* once went on record as stating that any person who avoids doing so while running for president is clearly hiding some kind of tax fraud. Also of interest is that Mitt Romney has Swiss bank accounts, which are only used by people who are illegally hiding their money from tax laws. No American president has ever had a Swiss bank account - not even wealthy George HW Bush, not even JFK - and yet Mitt Romney does. If you cannot see the blaring truth in that, then you are as dumb as a box of toe nails.

    And onto our final note tonight, let us remind our viewers that only one candidate for president - Mitt Romney - openly insulted a whopping 47% of Americans by labeling them as lazy, weak, dependent and self-entitled merely for not paying federal income taxes - like many of you, who simply don't earn enough after deductions and exemptions - unlike Mr. Romney, who was raised rich by a wealthy businessman / politician and now slickly pretends as if he built his wealth by his own bootstraps. While Barack Obama has spent four years battling to help 100% of America, Mr. Romney has admittedly written half of you off as (in his word) 'victims.' And that pretty much says it all right there.

    Goodnight, and God bless."
