Barack Obama, our next President

Compare the Republican Party’s current positions with those of its hero, Ronald Reagan. Myths of Reagan’s rigid conservatism abound now, but in the end, what made him a success was precisely that he was not wedded to a hawkish view of the Cold War and how to wage it.
After the Iran-Contra scandal nearly wrecked his administration, Reagan dismissed the neoconservatives involved, embraced reforming Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev and forged an agreement on arms control that hastened the Cold War’s conclusion.
Domestically, yes, Reagan cut tax rates, especially for the wealthy — but he did not hesitate to raise taxes when he felt it was necessary, which he did on 11 occasions.
Reagan ran government at 22% of gross domestic product — at a time before the Baby Boomers were retiring.(Romney says he wants to get it down to 20%, precisely when those retirement costs are soaring.)

IN THE WASHINGTON POST: Jennifer Rubin: Obama needs to come clean on Benghazi.“The Benghazi debacle has three parts: how we neglected security while al-Qaeda was building a presence in Libya; whether the administration tried to mislead the public as to the nature of the attack; and now whether the administration denied pleas for help from operatives on the ground at the consulate.”

It appears to me the intent of Al Qaeda was not to kill the ambassador, but to kidnap him. They had ample explosives and RPGs at their disposal, yet when they got to the door to the room the ambassador was in, they used diesel fuel to light a fire and smoke him out. Stevens died of smoke inhalation, not wounds. If Al Qaeda’s intent was to kill Stevens, then they would have just blown the door off its hinges with their RPGs, then if he were still alive just lit him up with their AKs… or make a video of a bunch of Arab terrorists cutting his head off.
They were well rehearsed for the assault. This was a complicated battle plan involving heavy weapons, diversionary fire, and an ambush force to prevent the rescue forces from reaching the consulate compound coming from the CIA facility. We know where the facility in eastern Libya is where Al Qaeda trained for this mission. We have video of the attack. The FBI has the recordings of the battle inside the consulate that they don’t want anyone to know what these recordings have on them. I’ve got two questions:
Why haven’t we bombed the facility in eastern Libya where Al Qaeda trained to kidnap the American ambassador to smithereens?
And, WHO told Susan Rice what to say all across the television networks and at the UN? She made us look like a country of imbeciles.
It would be one of the October “surprises” is Al Qaeda succeeded in their attempt to kidnap Stevens, and Obama got a chance to look “presidential” while he let the terrorist that bombed the WTC and attempted to kill 30,000 (that’s THIRTY THOUSAND) Americans who worked there in exchange for an American ambassador. Looks like that’s just another October “surprise” that blew up in the Democrats’ face. How many October “surprises” is it now that have blown up in the Democrats’ face? I count three.
Then, as if it isn’t bad enough our Ambassador to the United Nations, and Obama, is making us look like idiots, Hillary Clinton tells the father of one of the Americans killed in Benghazi that the maker of a video that didn’t even exist when Al Qaeda planned the attack and had nothing to do with the events in Benghazi would be arrested and prosecuted. For f**k*ng what?
People don’t realize the danger this administration presents to our country and way of life. It’s blatantly obvious that the First Amendment, the very first right the founding fathers wanted to secure for the population, is nothing of importance to the Democrats.
The most important question today is:
WHO told Susan Rice what to say on television and at the UN?
It obviously wasn’t Obama. We’re in a situation where the sitting president is inconsequential in our government. A more dangerous situation for the population cannot exist.
WHO told Susan Rice what to say?
Bush, Dick, Scooter Libby and 4000 dead looking for WMDs that were never there. I compare this to all your "Danger" to our country. You Repubs are such hypocrites.

What might just help Obama and the people on the east coast at the same time would be for Obama to release his info so the Donald gives up the 5 millon and Obama can donate it to the Red Cross. Now that would be helping and showing he cares about American's. And don't concern yourself with Donald donating anyway to help because it's pretty clear from tax returns we've seen of both Dems and Republican's....Republican's ALWAYS donate more to charities and send more money when and where it's needed.
Release the records if there is nothing to hide and donate to the Red Cross Obama....it's the right thing to do for Americans! Take the chance to prove how much you really care about American's....he's obviously blown all the other chances to prove it that he's had.

Very very similar.
Here is Romney's version of a stimulus back in 2008 - in great detail - straight from the horse's mouth.

Couldn't have been any more NOT similar to Obama's.

Where are you getting your information?

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/226567...

He started out saying, "So this is surely the time for economic stimulus. But — and this is the crucial point — the government can’t just make itself bigger and more oppressive in the guise of stimulating the economy."

Right off the bat his version was NOT similar to Obama's. It becomes more and more NOT similar as you keep on reading.

I might as well head over to MoveOn to find a reply to that fringe right wing nutjob, but.....

At the present time, it does appear that the “Innocence of Muslims” video did play a role in the attack and the contention that it was a fully-orchestrated al-Qaeda event seems unlikely.

Sure thing, I hope he rushes onto tv to make a statement, lie he did when the Ambassador was killed, and walk away smiling.
What I know for sure is this: it's all good to say those things, until millions of people are affected.
You rightwingers are anti American, you want us to be the babysitter, savior to the world, but have contempt and scorn for your fellow Americans

Btw, did you know that 32,000 women get pregnant from rape? And that rapists can obtain visitation rights in 31 states?

“I think there’s nobody like Romney,” Ornstein.“Romney is like the Michael Phelps of presidential candidates. if you’re looking for gold medals in terms of audacious lying, and adamant refusal to turn over personal information, nobody comes close. I’m sure others would’ve liked to have done it, but the culture in the past was one where lying attracted some level of approbation and shame.”

Five Ways Mitt Romney Has Moved To The Center Since The Republican Primary

“We’re going to cut taxes on everyone across the country by 20 percent, including the top 1 percent,” Romney said during a GOP primary debate in February.

But in the general election, painted by President Obama as a candidate mainly interested in serving the wealthy, he introduced a new component: the rich won’t actually get a tax cut because he’d close deductions and loopholes for high incomes.

“I will not reduce the taxes paid by high-income Americans,” Romney said during the first debate with Obama, in Denver. In a subsequent debate, he said,“I’m not looking to cut taxes for wealthy people. I am looking to cut taxes for middle-income people.”

http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2012/10/fi...

Hell, I might even vote for that guy.

But will he be that guy tomorrow?
