Obama wants broke nation

According to a report by the Alliance for Justice, President Barack Obama has the lowest percentage of confirmed judicial nominees in history and the lowest number of confirmations since Jimmy Carter in 1977, when the judiciary was 40 percent smaller. During Obama's first two years in office, vacancies on the federal bench have increased from 55 to 97. What does that tell you about Obama's nominations?

Obama wants America to be broke. Look at what he did in April: gave $5 billion to Brazil to drill for oil. We have many rigs ready in the gulf states and parts of Alaska, but no, Obama wants control from Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, General Motors, Wall Street and gulf oil.

Vote for anyone that believes in America. Drill baby drill, just to get gas and oil down below $3 a gallon or less. President George W. Bush didn't get gas near $5; he wouldn't have won in 2004 if it was.
