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

Same article:
"Ms. Jarrett came to Washington with NO NATIONAL EXPERIENCE. But her UNMATCHED ACCESS TO THE OBAMAS has made her A DRIVING FORCE in some of the MOST SIGNIFICANT DOMESTIC POLICY DECISIONS of the president’s first term, HER PERSUASIVE POWER only amplified by Mr. Obama’s insular management style."
In other words, she made the man who he is and tells him everything to do and say.
You right whiners are really quire ridiculous.

Bush relied far more on Karl Rove than Obama does with Ms Jarret.

You just take the complaints made against Bush & make up lies to project therm onto Obama.

It is really pathetic.

No. I do not think that it is the governments business what a woman decides to do.
Rape is not always easily proved; I completely reject the notion that a woman has to go on trial to get permission to abort the rapists baby.
54% of rapes go unreported; if the victim then finds she is pregnant as a result of the assault, it would then be too late.
I do not buy into the premise that women use abortion as a means of birth control; no one wants to have an abortion. People make mistakes and bringing an unwanted child into the world does no one a favor, especially the child.
I agree that prevention is preferable; but human beings are not perfect.
Re partial birth abortions; I do not believe that this is used very often with the exception being the danger of the life of the mother; in which case the decision is between her and her doctor. Not some religious zealot on a power trip.
I had just posted asking if you answered this, right before I saw this answer.

I must say, I am disappointed in your response. Oh well.

Oh, you are so damn jealous. How do you know Mitt hasn't given money? You are so jeallous of others that have done better in life than you did. I know you don't like Mitt, but I bet if he was to write your sorry ass out a big fat check, you won't refuse it, and would grab it out of his hands really fast, before the ink even had time to dry on it.

<quoted text>SAN CLEMENTE, CALIF.—For most of her 100 years, Minka Disbrow tried to find out what became of the precious baby girl she gave up for adoption after being raped as a teen.
She hoped, but never imagined, she’d see her Betty Jane again.
The cruel act of violence bore in Disbrow an enduring love for the child. She kept a black and white photograph of the baby bundled in blankets and tucked inside a basket.
It was the last she saw of the girl — until the phone rang in her California apartment in 2006 with the voice of an Alabama man and a story she could have only dreamed.

From the comments:

What I choose not to judge is someone's motivations for having an abortion. It is very easy to dismiss the reasons as "oh, well, she just didn't want the kid" or "it was just inconvenient for her to be pregnant." But the reasons might not always be that simple and I choose not to judge until I have learned all the facts. But I support legalized choice because the alternative is to reduce women to the status of "property" once they become pregnant. The fact of the matter is that, regardless of the law, desperate women will always find ways to end their pregnancies and if we make abortion illegal, then some of these women will die in back alley butcheries. Did you think of that? I don't think I will ever fathom the conservative psyche, which puts the life of a potential human being before the life of a breathing, living, thinking human being. Especially when many of these conservatives cry foul whenever measures are put in place (such as socialized healthcare, daycare etc.) that might actually encourage more women to keep their babies. Until the anti-choice movement shows as much concern for the "born" as they do for the "unborn", I think you will still remain a minority opinion.

Terms "Left" and "Right": A little Bible study

Remember what Jesus said:'Goats on the left,
sheep on the right'.

To Peter,'if you want to catch fish do it from the
right side of the boat. They did and filled the boat.

Origins of Left and Right...I have often wondered why it is that Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left”.

By chance I stumbled upon this verse in the Bible:
"The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left." Ecclesiastes 10:2 (NIV)
Thus sayeth the Lord. Amen.

Can't get any simpler than that.

What apology tour?
Which fact checker would you like? Politifact? FactCheck? American Conservative? This is the internet. Where truncated quotes can fact checked for full context.
But I agree with the rest of that paragraph. The second wanders into opinion, which I care not to take as the gospel until we know the full story.
What Happened in Benghazi
Though I am in no way a fan of President Obama’s foreign and security policies, the flailing that the Republican Party is engaging in at the moment to demonstrate some kind of cover-up in the aftermath of the Benghazi attack reveals a complete lack of understanding of how intelligence collection and analysis works. David Ignatius explores the subject in an op-ed,“CIA documents supported Susan Rice’s description of Benghazi attacks.”
Ignatius observes that intelligence is developed when something happens and that evidence is frequently “fragmentary and conflicting.” While there may be such a thing as incontrovertible facts relating to any incident, that solid information is something that frequently cannot be easily discerned. Ignatius notes that Republicans have been beating Obama over the head most recently with the assertion that there was a CIA Station Chief cable the day after the killing of the ambassador that indicated that the attack had been planned and organized by a militant group. But I would bet that there were at least 15 other reports that went out the same day that provided alternative scenarios. If you intercept a cell phone call in which someone is claiming credit for organizing an attack, is he speaking the truth or is he boasting and trying to take credit for some reason or other? If a source in a militia is claiming that he knows who ordered the attack, does he have an agenda that is driving his claim? All of that has to be sorted out, which takes time and cross checking.

We're talking about the Apology Tour Obama made when he went around the world insulting the United States.
It couldn't have been more of an Apology Tour if Obama was holding a sign saying "I'm sorry" in one hand, and a tin cup in the other.

Yup, that apology tour, dufus.

I'm going to ask the same question the Americans dying in Benghazi asked ... and was recorded for us to listen to today:
Where's the Spectre?(That's the AC-130 gunship deployed in Libya for this exact reason.)
Why was the Spectre not deployed to the fight?
The Spectre was there for this exact reason.
The Force Recon Marines in Sigonella were there for this exact reason.
Why weren't they put into the fight?
So, you wanted to fly around a city & pound it with gunfire.

Just shoot the one's wearing the baseball caps with "terrorist" on the bill.

I realize that a revisionist historian & military expert like yourself thinks they know more than the military commanders.

I have news, you don't know sh*t.

I love how you have a fit because of the death of 4 Americans due to attacks from terrorists yet defend these same terrorists. You prefer to allow these people to continue to act against the US until we can arrest therm & hold therm for trial.
There is little difference between a US citizen hiding in Yemen directing attacks against US citizens & a sniper in a clock tower. The sniper is taken out by SWAT.
But hey, a real law enforcement person would know this.
The terrorists should have been taken out by the AC-130 Spectre that someone in the White House ordered to stay away.

Who was that person?

I'd like to see what would have happened if that Force Recon unit in Sigonella, Italy, were put into the fight.
Marine Force Recon will be armed and ready to deploy 10 minutes after waking them.
Why were they stood down?
And who told Susan Rice what to say all over the television networks and at the UN?
It obviously wasn't Obama.
Who's the person in the White House making the decisions the president should be making?
The decision was made by the regional commander you GD dufus.

Well, you have the right to your opinion; but you don't really know. I could very well say the same thing about Bush; remember when he prohibited photos of the flag draped coffins? Bush didn't attend any of the funerals or meet the coffins arrivals back to the States.
From what I have seen about President Obama and the First Lady; they are very caring and compassionate people who care deeply for veterans and the families of the deceased.
Well, it would be nice if you were right.
