Obama Bribed Blacks, Hispanics, Young Voters And Women To Win – Mitt Romney

More than one week after the United States presidential elections in which he was defeated by incumbent and Democratic candidate, Barack Obama, the Republican flag bearer, Mitt Romney, at a conference call with donors, Thursday, alleged that his efforts to beat Obama at the polls was unsuccessful because  of ‘gifts’ the administration gave to black, hispanic and young voters.
“The President’s campaign focused on giving targeted groups a big gift, so he made a big effort on small things. Those small things, by the way, add up to trillions of dollars.” Mr Romney said.
He pointed at healthcare reform legislation and a decision to suspend deportation of certain illegal immigrants who came to the country as children by the president, proved “highly motivational” on Election Day.

On Tuesday, Bieber–apparently not thrilled about being dumped–landed himself a traffic ticket for speeding around West Hollywood in his Ferrari.

Omawumi talks about her daughter, ‘kokoma’ and ‘bottom belle’

In prelude to the release of her forthcoming single – Stay Alive, Omawumi had a chat with Seun Apara where she spoke about sundry issues and the meaning of words and phrases off her most recent single.
Basically, the word ‘Kokoma’, what does it mean?
I came back from America with my daughter when she was about two and half months or three months. My mum was with me for about four months to take care of the baby. When my mum was with me, I used to sing ‘Omawumi’s baby, Grandma Warri’s baby, Grandma Lekki’s baby’, and so on. Kokoma is like a drum beat or dance style of highlife that could be related to Ghanaian highlife in the 60′s or 70′s. When my mum cooks, that’s what they sing- ‘kokoma, I stand by, Adebisi Konga’.

His Excellency started the fresh campaign for a total removal of subsidy while receiving the report of the graduating participants of the Senior Executive Course 34, 2012, of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru, near Jos, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

NA WA OOO - President Goodluck Jonathan Launches Fresh Campaign for Total Removal of Fuel Subsidy

Barely a year after a the forceful removal of fuel subsidy which almost brought the country to a standstill, President Goodluck Jonathan has launched a campaign to totally remove the subsidy on fuel saying it was the solution to incessant fuel scarcity in the country. He said the removal of fuel subsidy would attract investors to the oil sector who would build refineries in the country thereby putting an end to the importation of petroleum products as it is currently being done.
According to a Punch report, he noted that although the effect of the removal might be painful initially, Nigerians would be happier in the end.
Why is it that people are not building refineries in Nigeria despite that it is a big business? It is because of the policy of subsidy, and that is why we want to get out of it. To change a nation is like surgery. If you have a young daughter of five years who has a boil at a very strategic part of the face, you either as a parent leave that boil because the young girl will cry or you take the girl to the surgeon.

The artiste reacted to the review insisting the online platform has been paid to critique his work. The review titled : ‘D’Prince’s ‘Frenzy’ Is Flashy But Tiring’ read ‘Truth is, if D’Prince hadn’t stretched his album to over an hour long, it would’ve been better, especially with most of the songs in the first half of Frenzy. Omoba simply doesn’t have what it takes to keep you interested for very long. The production isn’t exactly varied, leaning towards the Electro pop sound.’
