Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

Despite its egalitarian origins, the distribution of taxable wealth in Chester County
became increasingly unequal and steadily rose to levels in keeping with other northern states,
England, and in Wales (Main 1977:560; Soltow 1981, 1984, 1989:264). Undoubtably, the
nascent American hierarchy was nurtured by the replacement of disarticulated parliamentary,
royal, and proprietary interests with a unified national government centered in nearby
Philadelphia. As Ireland (1995:267) has persuasively argued, Pennsylvania’s ratification of the
constitution came only after Anti-Federalists’ concerns with the potential growth of “privilege,
hierarchical structures, and authoritarian institutions” was superceded by the immediate
problem of tax debt and falling market prices. Federalists promised that these obstacles would
be overcome by unification which would foster “security, prosperity, international respect, and
commercial opportunity.” The majority of Chester County voters chose economic growth
over social equality, and thereby aligned themselves with the Federalist core in Philadelphia
(Ireland 1995:182-216).
Contemporary observers linked productivity in Pennsylvania with prevailing ethnic
stereotypes. Benjamin Rush, a noted Philadelphia physician, held that one could identify the
plantations of Pennsylvania Germans from their English neighbors by the fertility and neatness
of their holdings. Benjamin Franklin admired Pennsylvania German’s “habitual industry and
frugality” and their ability to “under live others.” Pennsylvania’s Governor George Thomas
credited the large German population with the colony’s high level of productivity. Whereas
Germans were regaled for their industry, Scotch-Irish yeomen were seen as natural-born
frontiersmen who were indifferent agriculturalists (Lemon 1966).

WASHINGTON -- At a recent campaign stop in Pennsylvania, Mitt Romney expressed amazement at a gas station's touch-screen sandwich-making process.

"I went to a place called Wawa's today, you ever been there?... You press a little touchtone keypad, you touch this, touch this, go pay the cashier, there's your sandwich. It’s amazing,” Romney said.

To "politicize" means "to give a political character to."

It is a reductive term, capturing the peculiarly shrunken horizons of politics: "Gee, they nuked Israel. D'you think that will hurt us in Florida?"

So media outlets fret that Benghazi could be "bad" for Obama – by which they mean he might be hitting the six-figure lecture circuit four years ahead of schedule.

But for Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, it's real bad. They're dead, over, gonesville.

Given that Obama and Secretary Clinton refer to Stevens pneumatically as "Chris," as if they've known him since third grade, why would they dishonor the sacrifice of their close personal friend by peddling an utterly false narrative as to why he died? You want "politicization"?

Secretary Clinton linked the YouTube video to the murder of her colleagues even as the four caskets lay alongside her at Andrews Air Force Base – even though she had known for days that it had nothing to do with it.

It's weird enough that politicians now give campaign speeches to returning coffins. But to conscript your "friend's" corpse as a straight man for some third-rate electoral opportunism is surely as shriveled and worthless as "politicization" gets.

In the vice-presidential debate, asked why the White House spent weeks falsely blaming it on the video, Joe Biden took time off between big toothy smirks to reply: "Because that was exactly what we were told by the intelligence community." That, too, is false. He also denied that the government of which he is nominally second-in-command had ever received a request for additional security.

At the risk of "politicizing" things, this statement would appear also to be untrue.

Instead, the State Department OUTSOURCED security for the Benghazi consulate to Blue Mountain, a Welsh firm that hires ex-British and Commonwealth Special Forces, among the toughest hombres on the planet.

The company's very name comes from the poem "The Golden Journey To Samarkand," whose words famously adorn the regimental headquarters of Britain's Special Air Service in Hereford.

Unfortunately, the one-year contract for consulate security was only $387,413 – or less than the cost of deploying a single U.S. soldier overseas.

On that budget, you can't really afford to fly in a lot of crack SAS killing machines, and have to make do with the neighborhood talent pool.

So who's available? Blue Mountain hired five members of the Benghazi branch of the February 17th Martyrs' Brigade and equipped them with HANDCUFFS & BATONS.

A baton is very useful when someone is firing an RPG at you, at least if you play a little baseball. There were supposed to be four men heavily armed with handcuffs on duty that night,

but, the date of Sept. 11 having no particular significance in the Muslim world, only two guards were actually on shift.

Election is drawing close. Can any of you Repubs give an answer today?
Name just ONE idea or policy difference between Romney and Bush.
Convince America WHY we need to go back and try it all again.
Convince America that when Reagan started this entire plan of Trickle Down from the rich it made things better.
No proof in US history that lower tax rates have EVER created one job. But there is proof that the RICH are destroying America.
The rich bankers knowing made bad loans.
The rich on Wall St. knowing sold these bundled bad loans to the world.
The rich CEOs of over 27,000 American factories closed them and moved them to China to pay slaves .30 cents an hour.
The RICHEST do nothing but swap money on Wall St.. Make Millions and Billions doing it and then pay taxes like Mitt of 13%.
.
And somehow you Repubs vote for all these things as good for America.

Too bad the Kenyan has his vital records locked up. What's he hiding? Maraniss, himself, proved the Kenyan's autobiography is a pack od lies.

the State Department outsourced security for the Benghazi consulate

Let's pause right there, and "politicize" a little more.

Liberals are always going on about the evils of "outsourcing" and "offshoring" – selfish vulture capitalists like Mitt Romney shipping jobs to cheap labor overseas just to save a few bucks. How unpatriotic can you get!

So now the United States government is outsourcing embassy security to cheap Welshmen who, in turn, outsource it to cheaper Libyans. Diplomatic facilities are U.S. sovereign territory – no different de jure from Fifth Avenue or Mount Rushmore.

So defending them is one of the core responsibilities of the state. But that's the funny thing about Big Government: the bigger it gets, the more of life it swallows up, the worse it gets at those very few things it's supposed to be doing.

So, on the first anniversary of 9/11 in a post-revolutionary city in which Western diplomats had been steadily targeted over the previous six months, the government of the supposedly most powerful nation on Earth entrusted its security to Abdulaziz Majbari, 29, and his pal, who report to some bloke back in Carmarthen, Wales.

In the days before the attack, Joe Biden had been peddling his Obama campaign slogan that: "Bin Laden is dead, and General Motors is alive."

The first successful terrorist attack on U.S. sovereign territory since 9/11, and on the very anniversary and by al-Qaida-linked killers, was NOT helpful to the Obama team.

And so the nature of the event had to be "politicized":

Look, over there – an Islamophobic movie! "Greater love hath no man than this," quoth the President at Chris Stevens' coffin, "that a man lay down his life for his friends."

Smaller love hath no man than Obama's, than to lay down his "friend" for a couple of points in Ohio.
