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

Obama declares northeast a disaster area 48 hours before the storm hits, releasing FEMA assets to the state and local governments.

Ok, Democrats, here's your chance to say something you mindlessly repeated throughout Obama's tenure in the empty chair:

Everybody. All together now.

BUSH DID IT, TOO.

But, there's a difference today. When Bush declared the Gulf Coast a disaster 48 hours before Katrina hit and released all of FEMA's assets to state and local governments, it wasn't forseen that the Democrat-controlled governments in the immediate area would collapse.
Twenty four hours before the storm hit, Democrat Mayor (Chocolate City) Nagin hauled ass with everyone in the city government and the Democrat-controlled city government of New Orleans collapsed, leaving the entire population of the city without leadership.
When the storm hit, Democrat Governor (first state function as governor was to visit goddam Castro) Landry became hopelessly disorganized and the Democrat-controlled state government collapsed.
When FEMA had to coordinate with the state and local governments, there just wasn't one to coordinate with. This situation continued for more than a week after Katrina hit.
Bush was in a position where, to help the people in the disaster zones, he would have had to usurp the state and local governments. The Constitution expressly forbids this.

Fortunately, there is a Republican governor in New Jersey where the hurricane is projected to make landfall.

Republicans save us again....

As Governor, Mitt Romney has proposed more restrictions on hand-guns than Obama has as President.
Facts matter.
Yes, facts matter.

Ask Chicago and D.C. how "pro-life" their strict gun laws are.

A ban on drinks of any kind is a loss of liberty. Want to ban a drink that's pro-life, ban alcohol.

Affordable health care is anything but, and according to the CBO, will STILL leave 30 million uninsured.

Exactly. Who cares about some stupid college transcripts or applications? I wanna know why Mitt won't show his 2009 tax returns, wtf is he hiding from the American people?

Why doesn't Trump offer 5 millions to charity to see ALL of Romney's tax returns? Friggin hypocrite.

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.

Obama did not deny requests for help in Benghazi

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!!

The Kenyan's college transcripts would show that he enrolled as a foreign student who got bad grades and was an Affirmative Action parasite.

Why would the Kenyan turn down a 5 million donation to the Benghazi victims? What's the mau mau hiding?
