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

Agreed. Must be difficult for those on the coast not knowing whether to plan for rain, snow or both. Have family in Connecticut; prepared for most everything, but their biggest concern is that they will lose internet access. My how our priorities have changed over the years!
Think they can pretty much count on losing Internet with the expected power outages.

Washington Post warns "Experts sound alarm on Hurricane Sandy, likely to be worse than 1991 'Perfect Storm'”.

Pretty scary.

Obama's "role in the final event was miniscule at best", and it sure didn't help that they had to drag him off a golf course and give him a jacket for the photo-op.
Wonder if he wore the same jacket while they were watching Americans die in Benghazi?
I mean according to the experts here on Topix, they didn't have a plan for anything else, right?
He was busy packing for his trip to Vegas the next day. After all, fundraisers must go on. It's been his #1 priority since around January, I believe.

I could go on..but suffice it to say..I am not the one that is uninformed nor was my post inane..have you not seen the barrage of ads directed at women in the last 60 days trying to frighten us away from the big bad scary boogeyman man?
You are truly uninformed.

If you were informed you would know that Republicans in the House & in state legislatures wasted time after tie trying to legislate abortion. Not help the economy. Not create jobs.

Choose to be ignorant. That's your your choice.

Yes, Democrats are warning people that Republicans will work to outlaw abortion. Their actions these past 4 years prove it.

Republicans have tried to legislate new definitions of rape, not Democrats.

Romney will sign that bill. Republicans proved they will pass it.

50-70 mph winds here. That's not to bad. We get n'easters with that much wind. A lot of rain though and ith the wind coming straight down the Chesapeake Bay Norfolk, which is below sea level, is going to flood big time. I'm at 18 feet here so should be fine. New York City on the other hand will probably have to pump out the subways which will deadlock that city for weeks.

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.
Housing stated the slide in 2006/

Please list the legislation the Democrats passed in the first 9 months of 2007 that did all of this.

List them, Carol.

So you think the Democrats started these wars in 2007??? WTF.

You can't blame him for the circumstances he inherited, but you can blame him for spending us into more and more debt. You can blame him for spending more time campaigning and golfing than leading. You can blame him for lying to the American people and hiding the truth about the circumstances in Benghazi.
And yeah, he's proven things to us in Florida...just not what YOU th

Then you obviously didn't listen to Rices take on Benghazi.Half the money spent was for Bush's wars, not including the many, many deaths of american soldiers.Remember this if Romney wins, you better prepare your children for the draft, of course I bet his offspring and descendants will be off doing a mission.

HERE IT COMES:“Never Seen Anything Like This”: Hurricane Sandy begins merging with polar air mass, threatens US East Coast — OVER A DOZEN NUKE PLANTS BRACE FOR IMPACT...

Sandy, dubbed a “Frankenstorm” by one government forecaster, has begun merging with a polar air mass over the eastern United States, potentially spawning a hybrid (HAARP) super-storm that could wreak havoc along the U.S. East Coast.

Not knowing the extent of the damage or who will be most affected is what makes it so intense...and very scary.

The only mission they need to do is removing Obama from the presidency and then sending you back to Kenya for an education.

Just said it was kind of a coincidence.

The repercussions of the house of cards collapsing is reported as starting in late 2007.

Who was responsible for the housing market crisis? That's the question you and I should be asking ourselves.

I already know both sides are responsible. Apparently, you don't.

Don't know WHERE you got that crazy idea (unless you are brainwashed by liberal beliefs that American should bow and snivel to other countries like our bowing and sniveling president has done, to his shame, in the past).
No__sorry your ill informed.

I mentioned to Flack that OBL was an exception to the rule__maybe__it's really never been established that some high ranking Paki wasn't in on the deal.

CIA bases are not chancery's hon__whether or not consulates are is up for discussion.

The US military was not called upon defend the consulate, that wasn't even a battle__more like a home invasion followed by a fire.

That could have a particularly outsize impact in Virginia, a key battleground state, if the storm hits that far south.
Mr. Romney’s campaign canceled a Sunday night rally in Virginia Beach. He will campaign in Ohio that evening instead. You and Dennis Miller = a couple of Grumpy Old Hacks, but at least can be considered a has been rather than a never was.

Tax cuts do work to fight a recession. They don't work when they last too long & are unfunded.
If you weren't such an ass you would know that handing money to the wealthy is not as likely to be spent as handing money to the middle class.
Tax cuts don't always work like you see to think.
Lets use your theory & put iut to the test.
If we ct taxes by say 5%, you say we would gain more revenue.
So, lets cut taxes by 5% every year & after a few years, no one would be paying any taxes & the country would be rolling in cash.
2007 was a record year for Tax revenues, so how do you explain your Bush Tax Cut RHETORIC?

http://www.taxpolicycenter.org/taxfacts/displ...

Notice the % of GDP culumn....

Hmmm, hmmmm, hmmmm (but, but, Obama says!....) hmmm, hmmm

Reagan tax cuts....

In 1980, the last year before the tax cuts, tax revenues were $956 billion (in constant 1996 dollars).

Revenues exceeded that 1980 level in eight of the next 10 years. Annual revenues over the next decade averaged $102 billion above their 1980 level (in constant 1996 dollars).

Any increase in budget deficits was therefore the result of spending increases rather than tax cut-induced revenue decreases.
