Thanks to Alan Caraba for reminding us that the Fourth is about Freedom.
"Republicans believe every day is the Fourth of July, but Democrats believe every day is April 15th”
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
“An almost unbroken 50 years of deficit spending has finally brought us to a time of reckoning. We have come to a turning point, a moment for hard decisions. I have asked the Cabinet and my staff a quetion, and now I put the same question to all of you: If not us, who? And if not now, when? It must be done by all of us going forward with a program aimed at reaching a balanced budget. We can then begin reducing the national debt.”

Michelle Obama: "he NEVER takes a day off!"
But, Uncoverage posts: 'last weekend Obama played his 72nd golf game as president, 11th weekend in a row. It brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it? How HARD he's working...with no days off? waaaaaaaaaaaa.'
Michelle's mantra at all 4 California fundraisers is: Barack is SUCH a hard-worker. Who believes that?
Michelle’s speech to supporters in Los Angeles was hip-deep in hyperbole (my nice way of saying….she LIED.) She actually stood at a podium and said that Barack Obama is working so hard he “never takes a day off.” It was such a ridiculous claim, immediately refuted by liberal and conservative media, that she removed that sentence during her Tuesday fundraisers in the San Francisco bay area.
Keith Koffler of White House Dossier comments: “It’s just not clear to me anymore that the $400,000 a year salary, the chauffeured limousine, the free mansion, the catered meals, and the opportunity to be the most powerful man in the world is enough compensation for what he has to go through. Gosh, all of you out there who are unemployed, count your blessings that you don’t have to work like this.”
