Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Read more

This week, Mitt reiterated one of his most expensive and longstanding political panders—a commitment to increase military spending to 4 percent of GDP—adding at least $2 trillion to federal spending over 10 years.
The audacity of the etch-a-sketch meant that this specific budget-busting promise was so big that it almost went unchallenged—and certainly it hasn’t yet reached the level of mainstream, Main Street debate.
But let’s put it this way—a million dead Big Birds wouldn’t begin to compensate for this new expense. In fact, it single-handedly invalidates every specific cut he has proposed—which essentially consists of social conservative low-hanging fruit like “eliminating Title X Family Planning Funding”($300 million), reducing foreign aid ($100 million), privatizing Amtrak ($1.6 billion) and reducing “Subsidies For the National Endowments for the Arts And Humanities, The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, And the Legal Services Corporation ($600 Million). And of course, we can’t forget the pricetag placed by the Romney campaign on the not yet fully-implemented Obamacare ($95 billion). You do the math.
Even if you believe Mitt on the magically paid for, completely painless $5 trillion tax cut, adding in this specific commitment to spend more than ever before on our military puts us on the path to further future deficits.

Obama has f**k*d up Afghanistan so bad, we may not be able to prevent Al Qaeda from taking over that country again without a massive military assault.
Of course, like Obama who's helping the Taliban and Al Qaeda, you probably wouldn't see anything wrong with turning Afghanistan back over to Al Qaeda, would you?

So, please tell us about how there was a demonstration occurring outside the embassy in Libya before it got out control and a coordinated, sophisticated, well-armed Al Qaeda military unit appeared out of nowhere to protested one of a thousand videos that exist critical of Muhammed that didn't even exist when the "spontaneous" attack was planned, and engaged in a 6-hour battle and killed the ambassador and 3 other Americans....

McDonald's Owner Won't Turn Off Fox News; Customer Not 'Lovin' It'

[Craig] Lechner, remembering that the channel had recently showcased a violent suicide, and not wanting to expose his young children to violence, asked the owner of the McDonald's, Sebastian Lentini, to change the channel.

In the resulting video, Lechner again asks Lentini to turn off the TV, noting that the program was discussing war. Then, when Lentini refuses yet again, Lechner says, "I can't wait to put this on The Huffington Post!"

How many ridiculous excuses can the left come up with for Obama’s poor debate performance?
(Note: I sent a follow-up to Franke-Ruta clarifying the issues.)
An e-mail I sent today:
Garance Franke-Ruta
The Atlantic
Dear Miss Ruta:
You write that Obama did badly in the debate because he’s so preoccupied and worn down by being president that he has no energy or enthusiasm left for campaigning. This is one the silliest things I’ve read in politics recently. As anyone can see from watching him, the man is a campaigning machine. His main energies, his best energies, go into campaigning. Normally on the campaign trail, he is a shining star. Your thesis that the poor dear can’t campaign successfully because he is so exhausted by the cares of the presidency—and especially, as you emphasize, by the wars and other problems in the Mideast—will not fly. No. What he couldn’t do successfully, at least on this occasion, was debate against an intelligent, aggressive opponent. That’s a truth that it would be very difficult for you to acknowledge.
Sincerely,
Lawrence Auster

Some further thoughts. My guess is that Franke-Ruta’s excuse for Obama is an expression of her liberal mindset. To liberals, and especially to liberal women, war is something irrational and horrible that should never occur under any circumstances. Therefore to be responsible for the conduct of a war must break down any sensitive decent person. Because Franke-Ruta cannot imagine herself leading a war without being wrecked by it, she can’t imagine anyone else leading a war without being wrecked by it. So she blames Iraq and Afghanistan for Obama’s putative mental exhaution, even though, in reality, the U.S. involvement in Iraq has ended and Obama during his four years as president has put very, very little attention into those conflicts.
excellent and accurate post.

and if Romney doesn't become president, we continue on the road to becoming New Greece. I listened to Dennis Miller advise people if Obama is re-elected and they are busting their butts to earn a little more than $50K per year, they'd be better off scaling back their efforts and staying below $50K per year. that will be the magic cutoff for government entitlements like ObamaCare premium supplements paid for by the taxpayers.

Kori Schake gets this very wrong:

What the president and his supporters seem not to understand, though, and it plays to Romney’s advantage, is that there is an actual difference between ending wars and winning them. The president keeps emphasizing he brought the troops home from Iraq and is bringing them home from Afghanistan, but he is silent on whether we achieved the objectives for which we fought.

If the objectives could be achieved, Schake might have a point, but in both Iraq and Afghanistan the U.S. set goals for American and allied forces that could not be reached. Most Americans concluded that the war in Iraq wasn’t worth the cost, and they have reached the same conclusion on Afghanistan. If Romney is the candidate of continuing a war that no longer seems to serve any purpose or American interest, he is at a severe disadvantage with the public, and he and his advisers have to know that. Perhaps that is why Romney avoided going to Afghanistan and opted not to mention it in his convention speech: he is prevented by hawks in his party from seizing on the unpopularity of the war, and public disapproval keeps him from rejecting withdrawal outright, so he remains silent.

"At [Samantha Pawlucy's] public school a week ago Friday, the Port Richmond sophomore says she was dissed on dress-down day because she had the temerity to wear a Romney/Ryan T-shirt, embracing the minority group our city least tolerates: Republicans.

Geometry teacher Lynette Gaymon told Samantha that Charles Carroll High - a model of diversity with an enrollment that's one-third black, one-third white, and a third Latino - was a "Democratic" school.

Dixon-Neely then begins yelling about how “disrespecting the President” is an arrestable offense.

“Let me tell you something, you will not disrespect the president of the United States in this classroom,” she says, adding,“Do you realize that people were arrested for saying things bad about Bush? Do you realize you are not supposed to slander the president?”

“I have very, very environmentally conscious children — more so than me, I’m embarrassed to say,” said Ms. Ross, a social worker in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y.“They’re on my case about getting a hybrid car. They want me to replace all the light bulbs in the house with energy-saving bulbs.”

Ms. Ross’s children are part of what experts say is a growing army of “eco-kids”— steeped in environmentalism at school, in houses of worship, through scouting and even via popular culture — who try to hold their parents accountable at home. Amid their pride in their children’s zeal for all things green, the grown-ups sometimes end up feeling like scofflaws under the watchful eye of the pint-size eco-police, whose demands grow ever greater, and more expensive.

What the big problem is, is Republican Congressional obstructionism. The Teabillies who came to power in 2010 decided they were going to do every single thing they could do to stop the president. Why? Who really knows? Those folks are free market ideologues who want to dismantle the U. S. Department of Education for Christ’s sake. In a word, they’re IDIOTS.
Over and over through the RNC, we heard how Obama has done nothing. Actually, the bills the Obama Administration has sent to Congress, bills that could create jobs and actually turn a profit in government spending is getting longer and longer.
But the retards in Teabillyland won’t do anything. And the Republicans know this has happened. In fact, the Republicans planned for it to happen. Why? So they could gain power.
That’s right. Screw the American worker, we want power. That seems to be the Republican and Teabilly battle-cry. And for what?
For free market economics which have been proven not to work. Free market economics caused the 2008 downturn. Free market economics demands that the government quit “interfering” with the economy because the economy is pure and organic and touchy-feely-sensitive. Idiots.
I certainly hope the Democrats point this out over and over during next week’s Democratic Convention. The Republicans even met within hours of Obama’s 2008 presidential victory—all to plan his demise.
How patriotic is that? You’d think the Nazis had infiltrated the democratic process and are doing all sorts of damaging things.
