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 ... Full Story

My God Carol, You think George W Bush had nothing but Democrat controlled Congresses?
Get informed & quit being such an idiot.
It might have just been a big coincidence - but things were going along pretty fine with unemployment and the GDP until a year after Democrats took over Congress in January 2007.

However, 9/11 and the ensuing wars increased the deficit which both Democrats and Republicans supported. And the house of cards fell when the housing market collapsed.

The deficit didn't cause the economic collapse. So Bush had no more to do with the economic collapse than Obama.

Let me guess - you voted for "never been indicted" venture capitalist Rick Scott because he promised to create tons of good jobs and you cheered when he took credit for the ones he had nothing to do with. Before you start on some rant that Scott has created 100,000 jobs and Florida unemployment has fallen, consider 2 points: 1) most of them are low pay service jobs and 2) general improvement in the national economy since 2009 (no thanks to the House) has brought back some tourism. The high pay jobs - tech, manufacturing, etc.? not so much.

Well, how about New Jersey? Chris Christie is one of your darlings. Negative job growth. Well then Obama's Democrat cesspit Illinois must be awful.. um, nope - they have job growth. In fact, almost every state has had job growth in September, according to the CES and CPS. Well, SOMEBODY has to be doing bad.. Yep. Michigan. Well then they must have a Dumbocrat governor..., well gosh, whaddayaknow? Rick Snyder - Another Republican venture
capitalist.

So just what do you think venture capitalist Mitt is going to bring to the table that venture capitalists Scott and Snyder haven't?

Or how about an investigation of why we were attacked on 9/11/10 when Bush had been warned months ahead that such an attack was imminent and did nothing?
So did Clinton - the plot was in the making the last four years of his presidency.

He knew the same thing as Bush. Just had no idea of the day, the time or the place. Kind of important information.

GOP Rep: I ‘Absolutely’ Voted To Cut Funding For Embassy Security
O’BRIEN: Is it true that you voted to cut the funding for embassy security?
CHAFFETZ: Absolutely. Look, we have to make priorities and choices in this country. We have — think about this — 15,000 contractors in Iraq. We have more than 6,000 contractors, private army there for President Obama in Baghdad.
And we’re talking about can we get two dozen or so people into Libya to help protect our forces? When you’re in tough economic times, you have to make difficult choices how to prioritize this.

<quoted text> Let's get this fact straight for the last time. It was the run on the money markets that caused Lehman Bros to collapse and start the dominoes falling! Now who is known to do such things? Who benefited the most having it happen 6 weeks before the election?
Lehman Brothers collapsed not because of any run on money markets but because they were heavily leveraged in subprime mortgage securities.
Your little fantasy has no basis in fact.

So what you're saying is that the four Americans were allowed to die strictly for political purposes by Obama. OK...I agree with that.

Democrats don't bring up abortion. Republicans do.
Both in the federal & state governments, Republicans keep spending time not talking about our national security, not talking about the economy, not looking to create jobs, but trying to limit the availability of abortions.
If what you say was actually true, you should be railing against Republicans in Congress.
Why did Republicans do nothing to help us recover in 2009 & 2010.
Why did Republicans take control of the House only to pass bill after bill full of abortion related issues.
Why did Republicans waste time trying to defund Planned Parenthood.
You blame Democrats?
I have news, Democrats only point out how much time Republicans wasted trying to legislate your female parts. Not Democrats.
Republicans in states across this country spent time passing legislation to invade your body arts if you chose to have an abortion.
Republicans did that, not Democrats
Republicans sped time putting up bills that attempt to alter the definition of rape, not Democrats
Republicans try to pass a personhood bill that would make many forms of contraception illegal & in vitro fertilization techniques against the law.
Republicans did that, not Democrats.
They did this while doing nothing to help us recover, to create jobs.
Your post was just plain inane & uninformed.

<quoted text>Republicans want to place all the blame for the embassy deaths on President Obama yet they refuse to give him credit for killing Osama Bin Laden. You can't have it both ways.
Maybe if Obama hadn't waited to drop the charges against 2 CIA agents for getting the information that led to bin Laden five years later until after they found him, him taking some of the credit for giving the Seals the go ahead would have been more palpable.

But Obama left out giving credit where credit is really due and took it all himself. Then dropped the charges after bin Laden was dead. Guess it wouldn't have made him look good if he put those CIA agents in prison then.

I find it amusing the depth of your bigotry, and your failed experiment in symbolism over substance will cost your party dearly this election.
Hi-Ya Da-Vey Putz,

No matter how much you spin or kiss Bammy's ass, the comment above supercedes EVERYTHING. Your boy is incompetent and must be replaced for the good of this nation. He was a social experiment - elected because of his youth and skin (the flavor of the month)- and he failed. So, Putz, get ready for change you can believe in. LOL

Hey, Putz, just think - power failure coming because of the storm ... you can sit in the barn and stroke the cows ... and the bull.

Da-Vey Putz, it's about time for you to slink back here and pontificate. I wrote the above just for you ... enjoy.

We're not talking about sending in troops.

Security was removed from Libya two weeks before the attack and someone - whose name has yet to be revealed - told the CIA to "step down" after requesting permission to go in and help the Americans two separate times.

Help could have arrived in time to try and save them.

Obama still doesn't know what happened even though the State Department saw it happening live and intelligence knows exactly what happened.

still Obama got the credit he deserved for killing bin-laden, a credit you all republicans refuse to give, grant credit when credit is due and it's due now.

Say it LIBS:
Sharia Killed Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Christopher Stephens was deemed an enemy worthy of killing; therefore, sharia ideologues killed him, along with three other similarly “culpable” Americans. That is what happened. It is, moreover, what President Obama and his administration knew happened. They no doubt knew it while it was happening. They undeniably knew it within hours of its happening. And in spite of knowing it, they weaved a web of lies, over a course of weeks, to obscure what happened. They did so in gross violation of the president’s oath of office, and in a willfully anti-Constitutional conspiracy with Islamists against American free expression rights — a conspiracy resulting in the unforgivable prosecution of an American citizen for exercising his First Amendment right to make a video negatively depicting Islam. A video top administration officials, including the president himself, fraudulently portrayed as the catalyst of murderous Islamist savagery, intentionally obscuring the role of sharia. The first time, in history, a President of the United States has protected Islam instead of our people. Barack Hussein O'bama.

Never forget.

Dream on dummy__as sonics above post notes the housing collapse began in certain ares of the nation in late 05. Unemployment in that sector began to rise as the GDP began to shrink. Your fabrications on the subject put you in the same league with DB and the other headcases on this thread.

How did 9/11 increase the deficit? Please be specific Carol.

Besides housing, tax cuts__two wars__the drug benefit__unstable fuel prices all played a role in the Bush era economic disaster.

Bush II has been in hiding since January 2008.
