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

Newspapers don't like the Kenyan either...

MICHAEL BARONE: A Newspaper Endorsement That May Matter.“The Des Moines Register has endorsed Mitt Romney. The Register is not quite the statewide paper that it once was, but it is still clearly the most prominent paper in a state that is closely divided and has 6 critical electoral votes. The endorsement editorial is very much worth reading, because it tends to appeal to the high-minded affluent voters that can be found in large numbers on the west side of Des Moines and in its west side suburbs in Polk County and fast-growing Dallas County to the west.(Iowa was admitted to the Union in 1846.”

Also, it seems like quite a few papers that endorsed Obama in 2008 — like the Register — are endorsing Romney this time around. Seems like there’s a lot less hope-n-change enthusiasm.

Roger and us: how Ailes' Fox talk revolutionized the American right

Ailes, alone among news professionals, has understood the most important truth about modern news: nobody's interested in politics, not in real politics anyway. It's a buzz kill. Both Romney and Obama: buzz kills. Nonentities. But if you repopulate the political world with extremists, eccentrics, loudmouths and well-scripted voices, you have a show.

That's what we have four more years of with Ailes firmly in place: parallel realities, with Fox having long since overshadowed, or even mostly replaced, actual political reality.

Conservatives think the president deliberately ordered military support to “stand down” during the attack on the consulate in Benghazi.

Yep. That’s right. He told the military and CIA to “stand down” and intentionally allowed four Americans to be killed by evil-doers — obviously because the president is insane and wouldn’t have anything to lose by giving such an order. This president is clearly terrified of attacking and killing terrorists — just ask Bin Laden, Al-Awlaki and countless other dead terrorists in Afpak and Yemen.

The fact of the matter is, according to an NSC spokesman, the president didn’t give that order, nor did anyone in the White House. Secretary Panetta, General Ham and General Dempsey delayed further military intervention because it was unclear what was happening during the attack.

All of this “Benghazi Gate” talk is interesting coming from a group of conservatives who for eight years insisted that it was unpatriotic to undermine the commander-in-chief while troops were in harm’s way.

Speaking of those eight years, what about embassy and consulate security under the great protectors Bush and Cheney?

June 14, 2002, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide bomber kills 12 and injures 51.

February 20, 2003, international diplomatic compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Truck bomb kills 17.

February 28, 2003, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Gunmen on motorcycles killed two consulate guards.

July 30, 2004, U.S. embassy in Taskkent, Uzbekistan
Suicide bomber kills two.

December 6, 2004, U.S. consulate in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
Militants stormed and occupied perimeter wall. Five killed, 10 wounded.

March 2, 2006, U.S. consulate in Karachi, Pakistan
Suicide car bomber killed four, including a U.S. diplomate directly targeted by the assailants.

September 12, 2006, U.S. embassy in Damascus, Syria
Gunmen attacked embassy with grenades, automatic weapons, and a car bomb (though second truck bomb failed to detonate). One killed and 13 wounded.

January 12, 2007, U.S. embassy in Athens, Greece
A rocket-propelled grenade was fired at the embassy building. No one was injured.

July 9, 2008, U.S. consulate in Istanbul, Turkey
Armed men attacked consulate with pistols and shotguns. Three policemen killed.

March 18, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen
Mortar attack misses embassy, hits nearby girls’ school instead.

September 17, 2008, U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen
Militants dressed as policemen attacked the embassy with RPGs, rifles, grenades and car bombs. Six Yemeni soldiers and seven civilians were killed. Sixteen more were injured.

Shows what a weak smear campaign this really is. Remember, Mitt Romney tried to capitalize on the deadly attack in September, and it backfired. He tried again during the second debate, and was left looking ridiculous. By last week, the Republicans' entire line of criticism against the administration had begun to unravel, and in the third presidential candidate debate, Romney didn't even bother to go after Obama on this.

Keep going Republicans, you're doing great!!

WASHINGTON EXAMINER: Benghazi is not about politics, it’s about the truth.“Nearly seven weeks have passed since the attacks, and Americans are still forced to rely on document leaks and reporters with good sources for answers as to who owns the failure in Libya. Why isn’t Obama’s administration producing the answers?”

Obama Holds Advantage Heading Into Final Week

An Associated Press analysis finds President Obama "is poised to eke out a victory in the race for the 270 electoral votes needed to win re-election, having beaten back Republican Mitt Romney's attempts to convert momentum from the debates into support in all-important Ohio."

"While in a tight race with Obama for the popular vote, Romney continues to have fewer state-by-state paths than Obama to reach 270. Without Ohio's 18 electoral votes, Romney would need last-minute victories in nearly all the remaining up-for-grabs states and manage to pick off key states now leaning Obama's way, such as Iowa or Wisconsin."

It amazes me how little you rapepublicans know about your own candidate, don't you listen to what he says? Or, is it that you'll just vote for the ken doll, doesn't matter?

During a CNN debate at the height of the GOP primary, Mitt Romney was asked, in the context of the Joplin disaster and FEMA's cash crunch, whether the agency should be shuttered so that states can individually take over responsibility for disaster response.

"Absolutely," he said. "Every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. And if you can go even further, and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. Instead of thinking, in the federal budget, what we should cut, we should ask the opposite question, what should we keep?"

"Including disaster relief, though?" debate moderator John King asked Romney.

"We cannot -- we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids," Romney replied. "It is simply immoral, in my view, for us to continue to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids, knowing full well that we'll all be dead and gone before it's paid off. It makes no sense at all."

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/10/28/mitt...

(note in the video that he says; federal dollars should go into the private sector; you know what that means don't you? He'd allocate federal dollars to private contractors to make a profit; that's the Romney way. Remember when he said "I know where the big money is, it's in Washington, and, I know how to get it"
That was for the Olympics; that he claims "he" saved.!!What a crook)

Idiot propaganda.

Ok. Let's pretend it's the day after 9/11. You're the president. What do you do?
Do you:

Surrender to the jihad?

Or, do you do the Bill Clinton thing and just lob a few cruise missiles in their general direction?

Or, do you accept that they started a war with the United States and fight them?

If you choose to fight them, where do you fight them?

Do you do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the ecact same enemy as the Soviets? And, what idiot would expect something different than what the Soviets experienced?

Bush did it differently. The Soviets lost. Bush won.
Mission accomplished.)))

By the way, you need an education on what the conditions were prior to 9/11/2001. Search "Clinton CIA human rights purge" to discover how Clinton gutted the CIA.
Search "UN oil for food Saddam" to learn how Saddam Hussein stole the money from the UN's oil-for-food scam to rebuild his war machine.
Search "Valeerie Plame Iraq WMD" to learn how Valerie Plame, outed CIA employee, and wife of whistleblower Joseph Wilson, was not, as various right-wing sources have suggested, a paper-pushing desk jockey who perhaps wasn’t even involved in covert operations. They were lying.

Valerie Plame, a career undercover officer, was the Director of Operations for the CIA’s Joint Task Force on Iraq.
That's who Bill Clinton replaced all the CIA operatives that defeated the KGB and Soviet Union and won the Cold War with.
That's who's responsible for all of the US-generated intelligence on WMDs in Iraq. That's why the US didn't even have an operating foreign intelligence capability when Bush took office.
The other intelligence used came from France and Russia, mostly. They were rebuilding Saddam's war machine and being paid with money Saddam was stealing from the UN's oil-for-food scam. So, they fed the United States the intel that would maintain the UN sanctions and make necessary the UN's oil-for-food scam paying for all the weapons systems and hardened bunkers they were building for Saddam Hussein.

And, lo, and behold, you're one of the idiots and imbeciles suggesting we do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soveits, while we ignore Saddam and his rebuilt war machine in our rear.
An idiot knows that when the US left the Arabian Peninsula, Saddam was going to try to take the oil fields on the Arabian Peninsula again.

Wherever US forces went, the Arab jihad was going to go there and fight us. The only option we had was to choose where.

Bush got it right.

Today, Obama is tasked with sabotaging the democratic government established in Iraq by Bush, as well as the Karzai government in Afghanistan.
He's well on his way to accomplishing those goals.

30 million residents, not citizens. Nice try.

Gunner doesn't want you to know that his 30 million figure includes aliens - both legal & illegal & those who opt to pay the fine.
