Obama is like those flashy new cars new blah and new blah and new blah blah blah. You see advertisements on all media outlets Hollywood buys the hype so they go on comedy shows like Jay Leno and those type of late night shows...Jon Stewart and Colbert both feature the 'new car' on their shows as being the coolest thing since the wheel was invented so everyone buys...
Then the product flaws and bad design become apparent after you use the car a few times. The longer you use it the more enraged you become and wish you could have the old car back again you gave to your kids and it still works the way it was design to and never gives them the headaches you have each and every day since buying the 'new' car.
Obama is a lemon. We all have buyer remorse. If we could the majority of us would buy the old white reliable businessman Romney over the flash in the pan ideologue sold to us by the best marketing PR firms that billionaires' money can buy.
Obama may remind one of flashy new cars, but your hero Romney reminds all of the Edsel. Even the grill looked like a mouth sucking on a lemon.

Obama would be included in the 50% with an IQ between 95 and105, many of the 20% that have an IQ below 95 are the same people that voted for Obama.
And how would you distribute the Romney voters I.Q.-wise?

FDR could not walk, much less run, could not play round-ball, could not exercise like a man, could not goose-step on carrier deck, was a failure as a junkie - yes, he could talk, ad-lib.

Mother Teresa could walk with much difficulty, much less run, could not play round-ball, could not exercise like a man, could not goose-step on carrier deck, was a failure as a junkie - yes, she could talk.

So, Frank, were those three persons lesser human beings on account of their physical "ineptness"?(though I would not call Obama physically inept). Is brawn your bottom line as a qualification to be president?

Many people who work in those field have an agendas so their work is tainted. Michael Mann and James Hansen are just two who have been caught cooking their data books.
Mann’s new AMO paper:‘Had I been a reviewer, I would have pointed this out and recommended rejection.‘
Posted on May 19, 2014 by Guest Blogger
Mann’s new paper recharacterizing the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation
A guest post by Nic Lewis
Introduction
Michael Mann has had a paper on the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) accepted by Geophysical Research Letters:“On forced temperature changes, internal variability, and the AMO”. The paper seeks to overturn the current understanding of the AMO, and provides what on the surface appears to be impressive evidence. But on my reading of the paper Mann’s case is built on results that do not support his contentions. Had I been a reviewer, I would have pointed this out and recommended rejection.
In this article, I first set out the background to the debate about the AMO and present Mann’s claims. I then examine Mann’s evidence for his claims in detail, and demonstrate that it is illusory.....
Confronted with the evidence that avgas pollutes the environment and specifically increases airborne lead levels in the immediate vicinity of airports, and causes serious increases in blood Pb levels in children, Rouge goes off into another ridiculous conspiracy theory, essentially claiming environmental science is a vast network of scientists sharing an evil "agenda".

BTW, Nic Lewis is a global warming contrarian and gadfly who publishes blog articles. Has Rouge seen the rebuttals of Lewis' statements?

http://denierlist.wordpress.com/2012/12/19/ni...

Lewis cited a paper, misrepresenting the paper, and the author of the paper set the record straight.

Another criticism of Lewis' misleading misrepresentations:

"One significant issue in Lewis' paper (in his abstract, in fact) is that in trying to show that his result is not an outlier, he claims that Aldrin et al.(2012) arrived at the same most likely climate sensitivity estimate of 1.6°C, calling his result "identical to those from Aldrin et al.(2012)." However, this is not an accurate representation of their results."

"Lewis's claimed value of 1.6°C appears nowhere in the paper itself. Rather, Lewis apparently ignored the authors' reported findings in favor of the mode he estimated from graphs in the paper. This misrepresentation both gives a false sense of agreements between the reported senstivity estimates as well as hides the mainstream values reported by the authors of Aldrin et al. "

http://www.skepticalscience.com/climate-sensi...

http://tinyurl.com/mj3qglv

Lewis' main claim to fame is a criticism of Steig's Nature paper by Steig. However, Steig notes that Lewis is in agreement with most of Steig's conclusions, and Lewis' main point of departure is quite dubious, at best:
"The evident failure of O’Donnell et al. to correctly capture what is going on at Byrd (and presumably elsewhere in West Antarctica) is quite surprising, given that one of key differences in their methodology is to use the weather station data — not the satellite data as we did — as the verification target. That is, O’Donnell et al. use weather stations, withheld one at a time from the reconstruction for verification purposes to optimize their calibration. How then, can they be so far off for the location of the most important weather station?(I say ‘most important’ here because the main point of contention is, after all, West Antarctica). There are three likely sources of the problem, each pertaining to O’Donnell et al. implementation of their suggested modifications to the method we used."

Did she say hero? NO so I guess you pulled that out of your a$$? If you watched the debates between Romney and Obama it's now perfectly clear Romney knew what he was talking about and Obama was wrong.

Hindsight is always so clear when you have all the answers to the unanswered questions you forgot to ask or weren't sure how things in the world might work out.

You wrote : "Now we know Mitt Romney would have been a far superior pick as president. " Now we know, you say? Really? You know that? How?

Let's review just a few of Obama's work, like it or not, IN SPITE of a House that vowed he'd never be a repeat president, which shows the amount of cooperation he got and gets ::

Obamacare
Reducing unemployment from 10.5 to 6.1%
Presiding over a stock market that more than doubled since early 2009
Presiding over a true path to energy self-sufficiency
Presiding over the rebirth of the Big Three auto sector

Blocking of legislation by the House :

Blocked proposal to limit bonuses to CEOs and their boards, specially the defaulted ones

Blocked proposal to fund handling and deportation of aliens from Central America

Blocking two kinds of normal appropriations by witholding appropriations , thereby almost hurling nation into bankruptcy over obamacare which has been approved by both Houses, the Supreme court and the White House.

Also, tell us, as you seem to know Romney would have been much better, what your candidate would have done about :ŕ

Afghanistan
Iraq
Georgia
Chechnya
Gaza, Israel, etc
Ukraine

Not so simple, is it?

Oh, reduced Unemployment to 6.1%? Quoting the U-3 unemployment rate is not accurate, and YOU know it. How about the SEVEN MILLION PEOPLE who gave up looking for work? Did you give Obama credit for that?
The ONLY reason why the stock market is as high as it "is" is because of QE1, QE2 and now QE3 which has propped up Wall Street while Main Street has suffered. You Libtards don't really acre about the poor people ..... in this country. Just look at Shitcago!!!
No, Obama is not interested in fuel self-sufficiency. Crude oil production in Federally controlled areas is DOWN. If it was not for the private sector, we would be in a very deep hole.
Obama did not save FORD, did he? Is so, what did he do for Ford??? And all Obama did for GM and Chrysler was to save UNION jobs, and nothing else. Not so, say you? How about Delphi's retirement fund that Obama robbed??? Oh, they don't count as Delphi is NON-union!!!
And it is a good thing that Obama blocked legislation. Just look what happened when Bill Clinton signed into law four of Newt Gingrich's balance budgets, seven of the points of the Contract with America and the Taxpayer Relief Act of 1977!!!
Bill Clinton is a Blue Dog moderate Liberal who could cross party lines whereas Obama can not/will not listen to any Republican. When he does meet Republicans he only lectures them.
Have you not learned one thing/ NO, you are a bigot and never will learn.

In the ;ate 1970's Jimmy "The Peanut Man" Carter printed just $500 Billion and as a result, in 1980, we had a 14% inflation rate and a 21% prime interest rate and the following year, in 1981, we had a RECESSION. But because Reagan was then the president, you Libtards blamed Reagan!!!
And what is really sad is that Obama has printed SEVEN times as much money and he expects a different outcome. Just wait until the QE3 Taper is finished!!!

Preparing for life after quantitative easing With US Fed on track to end monetary stimulus by October, there are growing signs of a new round of irrational exuberance in global financial system

The US Federal Reserve is on track to end quantitative easing by October. It began its unconventional monetary policy of buying bonds with newly created money in the immediate aftermath of the North Atlantic financial crisis. The US economy now seems to be on the path of recovery while the massive monetary expansion of the past six years has not sent inflation soaring. But there are growing signs of a new round of irrational exuberance in the global financial system: a real estate bubble, soaring equity prices, lax lending standards, low implied volatility in financial assets and a compression of risk premiums. The next stage of the normalization of US monetary policy will be higher interest rates. No one can predict when the cost of money will begin to inch up but the direction of interest rates is now quite clear. The moment of reckoning could be as early as the middle of 2015 even though Janet Yellen has indicated in her most recent statement that she is quite prepared to keep interest rates very low for some more time. Meanwhile, the struggling European and Japanese economies are likely to stay on their current course for much longer; the balance sheets of their respective central banks will continue to expand. What are the risks for India? It must be remembered that India was one of the countries that suffered the most when the financial markets went into a tizzy after former Fed chairman Ben Bernanke first hinted in May 2013 that he would begin the tapering of quantitative easing. India was a prime candidate for a panic run on the rupee thanks to its large fiscal deficit, current account vulnerability and high inflation. It is to the credit of former finance minister P. Chidambaram and Reserve Bank of India governor Raghuram Rajan that there is now greater commitment to fiscal discipline, the current account gap has been reduced and inflation has drifted down. One has only to compare our performance on these three variables over the past year to what has happened in the other fragile economies such as Turkey, South Africa, Brazil and Indonesia. But that does not mean that India has no reason to worry. Its key economic indicators are still nothing to write home about. The overdue process of macroeconomic stabilization that began in August 2013 is not over yet. The recent decline in inflation will undoubtedly lead to a new clamour for lower interest rates. Cutting interest rates at a time when global interest rates rise will be a risky strategy as long as India has high inflation; the narrowing interest differential will likely put the rupee under pressure. The International Monetary Fund has said in a new analysis on the potential spillover effects of higher global interest rates that a lot depends on the reason why monetary policy is being tightened in the rich economies. A real shock as interest rates rise in response to strong economic growth will be a positive since more robust economic activity will lift many boats. A money shock will be more of a problem as interest rates will go up faster than what is warranted in the real economy. The former will lead to positive spillover for countries such as India while the latter will lead to negative spillovers. The relative calm in the financial markets since the emerging markets scare of 2013 has led many market participants as well as policy makers to lower their guard. It is hard to tell right now whether a new storm is brewing over the horizon, but it is quite likely that rising global interest rates will put a lot of the current buoyant assumptions about asset prices, risk premiums and currency values under severe test in the coming months.

Well Jacqueau, how did Egypt get the Sinai Peninsula from Israel? Ah, they recognized Israel as a country and signed a Peace Treaty. And Gaza and Palestine can do they same thing.
First they have to declare Statehood but they won't as they will have to declare their borders and they do not recognize Israel.
Simple, so simple, Israel will live in peace but the radical Muslims will not let them. Oh, yea, how many Christians live in Gaza? How many Jews? How many Christians and Jews are left in Northern Iraq?!?

Yep, 1,750 officers to be RIFfed (Reduction In Force) by the US Army. But for every officer there will be a dozen enlisted men and women who will denied reenlistment.
A hundred years ago it took only six weeks to train an infantryman but today it takes six months. And that is just a simple infantryman. How long does it take to train an aviator?
The fact is the military is much more technical that when I retired 25 years ago. When you go to war you go with what you have. During WWII we had three years to build up but the next war maybe over in six months.
When politicians fail at their jobs the military is called on to restore the peace. But what if they fail? Think about that?!?
The biggest treat to America is OBAMA!!!

550 majors to be separated in reduction in force
Aug. 1, 2014 - 06:00AM |

Secretary of the Army John McHugh has approved the results of reduction-in-force boards that will require 550 Regular Army majors to separate or retire from active duty by next spring.

The Army Competitive Category officers are members of year groups 1999 through 2003 who were screened for retention by separation and enhanced early retirement boards that met in April.

The major boards were preceded by a round of captain screening panels in March that identified nearly 1,200 basic-branch captains for involuntary separation.

Oh, the Russians are building new intermediate nuclear ballistic missile and have been secretly for about five years. Tell me, how many INTERMEDIATE nuclear ballistic missiles do we have? NONE!!!
Oh, did not we and the Soviets sign a Start I and Start II treaties. Yep, Bush-1 signed Start I and Obama renewed it!!! But didn't Reagan say

START I
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The START I treaty expired 5 December 2009. On 8 April 2010, the replacement New START treaty was signed in Prague by U.S. President Obama and Russian President Medvedev. Following ratification by the U.S. Senate and the Federal Assembly of Russia, it went into force on 26 January 2011

Didn't Reagan say, "Trust, but verify"? What has Obama done? Turned a blind eye!!! What a wimp Obama is and Putin knows it..
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/START_I

We should call him Neville Obama, waving a sign treaty yelling, "We have peace in our time"! What a fool Obama is. And so is his followers too.

Hey stupid, you do know there is no WEST Antarctica, don't you? It has a South Pole and a Northern coast line but east and west just goes around in one big circle.
And then you have never heard of El Nino either. During a La Nina the Ross Sea coast line defrosts and when a El Nino comes back it will grow. It is just we have not had a significant El Nino in many years now
And they have been recording the El Nino oscillations for about 400 years now so don't tell us it is man-made!!! Take a look at this link and please note the La Nina-caused hot spot between New Zealand and Cape Horn, S.A. in the seas off of Antarctica. And you think this is NOT a factor? BTW, it will cool off just as soon as the El Nino reforms. And it will, just like it has been doing for over 400 years.

If Obama didn't hate our country and have an extreme agenda, he would be just another average citizen who has accomplished more than expected with what little talent he was born with. He wasted the opportunities that have been given to him. Most average citizens in this country have not been given the opportunities that Obama was given and he should have been grateful for that.
