Barack Obama, our next President

America seethes

Obama’s comparative advantage on war and peace issues seems to be gone. His campaign and his convention boasted constantly of how he ordered the attack on Osama bin Laden.

The murder of our ambassador and three other Americans in Libya and the apparent failure to respond to cries for rescue undercuts the Obama narrative that the Muslim world is peaceful and friendly now that he is president. Turmoil and chaos abroad do not work in favor of an incumbent president.

Where's the buried power lines so New York doesn't lose power after a weak hurricane passes through?
Now, that was one of those "shovel-ready" jobs that never got funded... like every other job the money that was stolen from "Porkulus" could have done.
What happened to all that infrastructure work that was supposed to be done with "Porkulus"? We spent 860 billion dollars for "Porkulus". What did we get for it, aside from a bunch of Democrat cronies getting every pocket they had stuffed full with my money?
To put that into its proper perspective, the total cost for the Iraq operation from the beginning in 2003 to the end of 2010 was 804 billion dollars.
In one action, Obama spent 860 billion dollars ... on what?
If Obama didn't steal all the money from "Porkulus" New York and the rest of the northeast would have power after that storm.

And continuing on with it, ad nauseam...Romney never even had the decency to look embarrassed more than sixty seconds after being called for his snarky mistake on Obama calling the attack an act of terror. I suppose most campaigns have their own network of enablers, but these current Grumpy Old Pricks have their own television network of liars. "As you may have heard, Romney on Thursday scared the bejeezus out of Ohio autoworkers when, during a rally, he cited a story claiming that Chrysler was moving Jeep production to China. Thousands of people work at a sprawling Jeep complex in Toledo and a nearby machining plant. Many thousands more work for suppliers or have jobs otherwise dependent on the Jeep factories. It’s fair to say that they owe their jobs to President Obama, who in 2009 rescued Chrysler and General Motors from likely liquidation. If Chrysler moved the plants overseas, most of those people would be out of work.

The story turns out to be wrong. As Chrysler made clear the very next day, in a tartly worded blog post on the company website, officials have discussed opening plants in China in order to meet rising demand for vehicles there. They have no plans to downsize or shutter plants in the U.S. On the contrary, Fiat, the Italian company that acquired Chrysler during the rescue, just spent $1.7 billion to expand Jeep production in the U.S. That includes $500 million to renovate and expand the Toledo facilities, with 1,000 new factory jobs likely to follow. On Monday, about the same number of people will report for their first day of work in Detroit, when Chrysler adds a third shift to a Jeep plant it operates there."

America catches up to fred and predicts a landslide victory for President Romney

44 states...400+ electoral votes...filibuster proof senate

Here comes the landslide
By Dick Morris - 10/30/12 06:33 PM ET

Voters have figured out that President Obama has no message, no agenda and not even much of an explanation for what he has done over the past four years. His campaign is based entirely on persuading people that Mitt Romney is a uniquely bad man, entirely dedicated to the rich, ignorant of the problems of the average person. As long as he could run his negative ads, the campaign at least kept voters away from the Romney bandwagon. But once we all met Mitt Romney for three 90-minute debates, we got to know him — and to like him. He was not the monster Obama depicted, but a reasonable person for whom we could vote.

As we stripped away Obama’s yearlong campaign of vilification, all the president offered us was more servings of negative ads — ads we had already dismissed as not credible. He kept doing the same thing even as it stopped working.

The result was that the presidential race reached a tipping point. Reasonable voters saw that the voice of hope and optimism and positivism was Romney while the president was only a nitpicking, quarrelsome, negative figure. The contrast does not work in Obama’s favor.

His erosion began shortly after the conventions when Indiana (10 votes) and North Carolina (15) moved to Romney (in addition to the 179 votes that states that McCain carried cast this year).

Then, in October, Obama lost the Southern swing states of Florida (29) and Virginia (13). He also lost Colorado (10), bringing his total to 255 votes.

And now, he faces the erosion of the northern swing states: Ohio (18), New Hampshire (4) and Iowa (6). Only in the union-anchored state of Nevada (9) does Obama still cling to a lead.

In the next few days, the battle will move to Pennsylvania (20), Michigan (15), Wisconsin (10) and Minnesota (16). Ahead in Pennsylvania, tied in Michigan and Wisconsin, and slightly behind in Minnesota, these new swing states look to be the battleground.

Or will the Romney momentum grow and wash into formerly safe Democratic territory in New Jersey and Oregon?

Once everyone discovers that the emperor has no clothes (or that Obama has no argument after the negative ads stopped working), the vote shift could be of historic proportions.

The fact is it doesn't matter if anybody is listening to the Behghazi "hysteria" before the election or not. Nixon was re-elected too! The fact is even if Obama is re-elected all the info will come out and when it does Obama will be OUT! I expect he'll have to be thrown out on his ass though because I can't see the narcissitic community organizer having the honor that Nixon did and stepping down on his own when he knows all his bs has finally caught up with him.

Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed orders to “stand down” they instead “walked” while under fire to the Consulate compound from the CIA Annex.

They "walked" there, approximately a half mile, retrieved the consulate employees, and "walked" them back to the Annex. Woods and Doherty were not in an armored SUV as previously reported. They were on Foot and they were taking fire while doing so.

When Woods and Doherty safely secured the 20 to 30 employees back in the annex they took up positions on the roof, and Woods engaged communication traffic proclaiming “Where the fuck is the Spectre“, referencing the AC-130 Gunship he anticipated would be overhead by then. Obviously it was never sent.

Who in the White House gave the order for the Spectre to not do the very thing it was in Libya to do - support Americans when Al Qaeda attacked?

Who in the White House is giving orders the president should be giving?
Who's really acting as president?

Just like money for education, cut the incompetent federal government out of it. Give that money directly to the states. That will save multi billions.
The states have to do the repairs. If the federal government doesn't consume FEMA money, then there's more for the states. You can cut FEMA completely and still give the same amount of money to the state in need.
... idiot.
Besides, have you seen the acres and acres and acres and acres and acres of the FEMA trailers that haven't been used since Katrina?
Why the hell does the federal government still own them?
And, after sitting all those years in the hot and humid southern climate, what kind of condition do you think they're in now?
Have you ever opened a trailer that had been sitting idle and empty in Poplarville, Mississippi, for a few years?
:-D

We can get rid of FEMA and the states will not know the difference.

Where is the Benghazi media feeding frenzy? No one is camped out on the White House lawn, did Obama confiscate their sleeping bags?

I don’t think there’s a conspiracy at work. Rather, I think journalists tend to act on their instincts. And, collectively, the mainstream media’s instincts run liberal.

In 2000, a Democratic operative orchestrated an “October surprise” attack on George W. Bush, revealing that 24 years earlier, he’d been arrested for drunken driving. The media went into a feeding frenzy.

“Is all the 24-hour coverage of Bush’s 24-year-old DUI arrest the product of a liberal media almost drunk on the idea of sinking him, or is it a legitimate, indeed unavoidable news story?” asked Howard Kurtz on his CNN show “Reliable Sources.” The consensus among the guests: It wasn’t a legitimate news story. But the media kept going with it.

One could go on and on. In September 2004, former CBS titan Dan Rather gambled his entire career on a story about Bush’s service in the National Guard. His instincts were so powerful, he didn’t thoroughly check the documents he relied on, which were forgeries.

Oh, there have been conservative feeding frenzies: about Barack Obama’s pastor, John Kerry’s embellishments of his war record, etc. But the mainstream media usually tasks itself with debunking and dispelling such “hysteria.”

Last week, Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffin reported that sources on the ground in Libya say they pleaded for support during the attack on the Benghazi consulate that led to the deaths of four Americans. They were allegedly told twice to “stand down.” Worse, there are suggestions that significant military resources were available to counterattack, but requests for help were denied.

If true, the White House’s concerted effort to blame the attack on a video crumbles, as do several other fraudulent claims. Yet, last Friday, the president boasted,“The minute I found out what was happening” in Benghazi, he ordered that everything possible be done to protect our personnel. That’s either untrue, or he’s being disobeyed on grave matters.

Yet Fox News is alone in treating the story like it’s a big deal. During the less significant Valerie Plame scandal, reporters camped out on the front lawns of Karl Rove and other Bush White House staff. Did Obama confiscate those journalists’ sleeping bags?

Of the five news shows last Sunday, only “Fox News Sunday” treated this as a major story. On the other four, the issue came up only when Republicans mentioned it.“Meet the Press” host David Gregory shushed a guest who tried to bring up the subject, saying,“Let’s get to Libya a little bit later.” He never did, but he saved plenty of time to dive deep into the question of what Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock’s comments on abortion and rape mean for the Romney campaign.

I’m willing to believe that journalists like Gregory are sincere in their desire to play it straight. But among those who don’t share his instincts, it’s hard to distinguish between conspiracy and groupthink. Indeed, it’s hard to think why one should even bother trying to make that distinction at all.
