Barack Obama, our next President

Bush cancels Europe trip amid calls for his arrest
""Will George W. Bush set foot in Europe again in his lifetime?
A planned trip by Bush to speak at the Switzerland-based United Israel Appeal later this week has been canceled after several human rights groups called for Swiss authorities to arrest Bush and investigate him for authorizing torture. Bush has traveled widely since leaving office, but not to Europe, where there is a strong tradition of international prosecutions.
The Swiss group and Bush’s spokesman claim that it was threats of protest, not of legal action, that prompted the cancellation. But facing protests is nothing new for Bush. What was different about this trip was that groups including Amnesty International and the Center for Constitutional Rights argued that Switzerland, as a party to the UN Convention against Torture, is obligated to investigate Bush for potential prosecution.
Amnesty’s memo to Swiss authorities cites, among other things, Bush’s admission in his own memoir that he approved the use of waterboarding. From Amnesty’s press release:
“To date, we’ve seen a handful of military investigations into detentions and interrogations in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantánamo. But none of these has had the independence and reach necessary to investigate high-level officials such as President Bush,” said Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International.
“Meanwhile, there has been virtually zero accountability for crimes committed in the CIA’s secret detention program, which was authorized by then-President Bush.”"

He's afraid to travel to Europe, under threat of being arrested.
And you nitwits believed he choked on a pretzel and fainted!! Couldn't have anything to do with the quart of Vodka he'd just consumed, could it??
Nice job, morons!! Bush lied, Americans and Iraqi's died, for a second act he destroyed the economy!!
Nice job, Dubya!!

Funny you don't have anything to say as marked indices hit record highs!!

You must be ashamed of yourself for being dead wrong for over four years now.

I note you haven't a word to say when th emarket hits new highs.

When the market goes down, you're all over it like a cheap suit!!

Housing is improving by leaps and bounds, the economy is humming, all in spite of Repugnant attempts (sequester) to destroy the economy and blame it on Obama.

You lost. Rmoney lost. Your side if filled with lying losers like Waxturds!!

Looks like Obamanation got kicked off Topix for his disgusting rants the other day.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

In his book, "Dreams From My Father," Obama indicated he hadn't always been an academic star. Even academic stars don't get into Harvard.
In a Columbia Newsletter's article about Obama's life: "Obama wrote letters to community organizations all around the country asking for a job but received no positive responses for six months until landing a job with a nonprofit in Chicago where he worked in low-income neighborhoods for 3 years."
From there, the timeline went straight to: "In his late 20s, Obama attended Harvard Law School where he received national publicity when he became the first African-American president of Harvard Law Review."
Something is missing - from community organizer for three years after not finding a job for six months to Harvard Law School.
One would naturally think that if he had the grades at Columbia, he wouldn't have had any trouble finding a job. Yet he got into Harvard.
Doesn't the missing piece in this timeline puzzle you too?
One would think too, that if starting a freshman year at any college, would NOT be records that anyone would opt to have as "sealed".

What's the big "secwet" deal?

By the way, your 401K won't do you much good if you get sick and the health care system is broken. You will have nobody to blame except yourself.
When Bush left office my 401K was in the toilet due to his bad policies and actions. Since Obama has been president due to his policies and actions my 401K has rebounded and is currently in hyper-drive. I have full coverage through my employer with my deductables covered by my HSA also through and financed by my employer.

I have a sizable pension and income from working in Connecticut. My plan is in about a decade or so, to take my Yankee money and bring it with me to the south where the people are much wiser and nicer. We already lost a congressional seat in Connecticut last cencus and I'm sure there are other people that think like I do. Why should I stay with a bunch of idiot Democrats who are irresponsible? South Carolina sounds like a great place to live. Maybe the Charleston area or a mountain lake home.

No liberals/socialist DemocRATS! Hurraaayyy!!!

Looking forward to it!

By the way, so many people moved out of your libtard state, you LOST TWO (2) seats, idiot.

Aunt Bettie Lou, "You just said some very powerful words. "The dignity of man cannot be found in a man's possessions. It cannot be found in his power or in his position. It really rests on his right to be treated as a man equal in opportunity to all others."

That is exactly what conservatives stand for - preserving the dignity of all people." Those are the words of a southern Democrat President Lyndon B. Johnson--so, you are arguing now that true conservatives have more in common with Democrats like FDR, Kennedy &Johnson, Martin Luther King Jr. then they do to today's false poseur Tea Party 'conservatives'? Perhaps, at one time, Republicans held similar views to today's progressive liberals--just see for example Republican President Rutherford B. Hayes who fought to clean up the corruption mess left by Republican President U.S. Grant, get big moneyed influence out of the Congress (#Occupy today),restored some of the President's powers that the Republican Congress took away from Andrew Johnson(Presidential veto and signing statements), fought for women rights, and the rights of freed slaves against the southern plantation owners . "Abolish plutocracy if you would abolish poverty."-Republican President Rutherford B. Hayes.

Typically stupid statement from a typical stupid person.

2012 was the warmest year on record, nationwide.

Stay stupid. We need morons like you to laugh at.

----------

"""2012 marks the warmest year on record for the contiguous U.S., with the year consisting of a record warm spring, the second warmest summer, the fourth warmest winter, and a warmer than average autumn," Jake Crouch, a climate scientist at the National Climatic Data Center at the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), said in a press conference Tuesday.

According to a new NOAA report, the average temperature for the lower 48 states in 2012 was 55.3 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Celsius), which is higher than the previous 1998 record by one degree Fahrenheit (0.6 degree Celsius).

A single degree difference might not seem like much, but it is an unusually large margin, scientists say. Annual temperature records typically differ by just tenths of a degree Fahrenheit.

"That is quite a bit for a whole year averaged over the whole country," said Anthony Barnston, chief forecaster at Columbia University's International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), who was not involved in the study.

2012: An Odd Year

To put that difference in perspective, said NOAA's Crouch, consider that the entire range of temperature increase between the coldest year on record, which occurred in 1917, and the previous hottest year in 1998 was just 4.2 degrees Fahrenheit (2.3 degrees Celsius).

"2012 is now more than one degree above the top of that. So we're talking about well above the pack in terms of all the years we have data for the U.S.," he added.

2012 was also the 15th driest year on record for the nation: The average precipitation total for the contiguous U.S. was 26.57 inches (67.5 centimeters), 2.57 inches (6.5 centimeters) below average.""

----------

Most Americans agree that our weather patterns, drought, etc., are caused by climate change, just as all leading scientists say.

Only the brain dead Repugnants believe otherwise, and they're controlled by Corporate interests.
