Barack Obama, our next President

The ‘I’ of the Storm
The dramatic homestretch ad for President Obama, running on every network and in all media markets, is a home run, devastating for Mitt Romney.
And, best of all, the president didn’t have to pay for it, or even say,“I approve this message.” It was a total gift — and from a Republican and top Romney surrogate.
Gov. Chris Christie, the fleece-wearing, order-barking Neptune of the Jersey Shore, was all over TV Tuesday, effusively praising the president for his luminous leadership on Hurricane Sandy, the same president he mocked last week at a Romney rally in Virginia as a naif groping to find “the light switch of leadership.”
As Romney roams the Midwest and Florida struggling to stay relevant, miming coordinating storm response with G.O.P. governors and collecting canned goods to send East, his fair-weather pal Christie failed to give Mittens any disaster relief.
On ABC, CBS and NBC, Christie hailed Obama as “outstanding.” On MSNBC, he said the president “has been all over this,” and on CNN, he called Obama “incredibly supportive.” The big guy even tweeted his thanks to the slender one.
Most astonishing of all, the New Jersey governor went on Fox News and spoke words rarely heard on that network:“I have to give the president great credit.”
“I spoke to the president three times yesterday,” Christie gushed.“He called me for the last time at midnight last night, asking what he could do.”
Christie also extolled FEMA, even though Romney has said it is “immoral” to spend money on federal disaster relief when the deficit is so big.
“Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy must have forgotten Christie’s self-regarding keynote speech at Romney’s convention, which had more “I” than “he” in it. Doocy asked Christie if there was “any possibility that Governor Romney may go to New Jersey to tour some of the damage with you?” The governor replied dismissively:“I have no idea, nor am I the least bit concerned or interested,” adding:“If you think right now I give a damn about presidential politics, then you don’t know me.”
White House officials seemed a bit flummoxed by Christie’s bearhug.“It’s unnerving,” one laughed, noting how odd it is that a Romney big gun might help break the stubborn tie in the electorate in Obama’s favor.
They speculate that Christie, who always puts Christie first, has decided that it’s better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue-state governor with a Democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have President Romney and Tea-Party Republicans in Congress pulling him over to the extreme right for the next eight years. He also knows he’ll need a boatload of federal cash to make his state whole again.

If only Obama had acted presidential the last four years, few would be on here complaining about his many failures. We are glad he is handling the storm, if only we could say the same about Benghazi. And we are glad Christie and Coumo are governors of NJ and NY instead of the affirmative action losers who were in charge of New Orleans during Katrina.

Obama's handlers must have told him he HAD to do his job instead of hanging with celebrities.

If Obama was reelected only because he got positive attention by finally acting presidential in a crisis, then Americans deserve him. His presidency has harmed and will continue to harm the US worse than any CAT 5 storm ever could.

Interesting.... this could explain why it seems someone in the White House is feeding real-time information to Al Qaeda:
As a student at Harvard Law School, then-bachelor Willard's practice of wearing a gold band on his wedding-ring finger puzzled his colleagues. Now, newly published photographs of Willard from the 1980s show that the ring Willard wore on his wedding-ring finger as an unmarried student is the same ring Shamus the Dog put on his finger at the couple’s wedding ceremony in 1992. Moreover, according to Arabic-language and Islamic experts, the ring Willard has been wearing for more than 30 years is adorned with the first part of the Islamic declaration of faith, the Shahada:'There is no god except Allah.'
There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached.
Muslims recite the Shahada when they wake up in the morning and before they go to sleep at night. It is repeated five times every day in the call to prayer in every mosque. A single honest recitation of the Shahada in Arabic is all that is required for a person to convert to Islam.
By wearing this religious statement on one’s hand, it connects the person to Islam. It is worn in hopes that Allah’s protections would be with the person, in hopes of gaining favor with Allah.
Though Islamic law prohibits the wearing of gold jewelry by men, it is a widely accepted custom, even in strictly Muslim countries. The wearing of gold rings is even more acceptable when it contains a religious message, such as ‘There is no god except Allah
http://digitaljourney.com/article/33403#ixzz ...
George Bush’ hopes site disputes this.
This could be just another of many of Bush’“false” claims with non-existent “sources” and erroneous and/or fraudulent information it. Hopes has lost all credibility in the internet world (and we all know how hard that is.) That’s why it’s very seldom a reference anymore. And when it is used, it’s a piece of cake to take it apart.
For some reason, Willard wore this ring on his ring finger long before he even met Shamus, and this very same ring he wore before he met Shamus is the ring Willard put on his wedding ring finger and he wears today.
I have to believe the version given by Egyptian-born Islamic scholar Peter A. Gabriel.“There can be no doubt that someone wearing the inscription ‘There is no god except Allah’ has a very close connection to Islamic beliefs, the Islamic religion and Islamic society to which this statement is so strongly attached.”
in 1990, students published a satirical edition of the Harvard Law Review that contained a mock profile advertisement about Obama that listed one of his “Accomplishments” as “Deflecting Persistent Questioning About Ring On Left Hand.”
Willard's critics and opponents would like to believe that the "mysterious" ring is conclusive evidence that Willard is Muslim. And that is the view that Pamela Geller expresses when she writes in Atlas Shrugs:
"I'd like to see one member of the press corps ask Willard about this. It certainly jives with Willard's islamophilia and his pro-sharia foreign policies, and with his extensive Muslim background, as detailed in my book, The Post-Merican Presidency: The Willard Administration's War on America."
Your post is pretty funny, except someone REALLY WAS was compromising US security from the Obama White House by feeding classified information to the New York Times, etc.

Well, to be fair, Sondra, if you hadn't spent the last four years complaining on here, SOMEBODY would've had to listen to it. You're just that kind of girl.
Fast forward to a re-elected Barack Hussein Obama and 2016. Will you be on here still defending his failures? Or, like many Obama supporters who were on here in 2008-2009, will you disappear in shame?

Because I know if you are, we will get to tell you we told you so, about everything from what will be called The Great Obama Depression: high unemployment, more debt, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, and even higher healthcare costs with less quality of care and rationing because of ObamaCare.

Of course, it will be too late by then and the next few Presidents will get to clean up Obama's mess.

"FACT: Republicans and Willard too stupid to understand risks of going public too quickly with supposedly irrefutable intelligence.

"In keeping quiet about the nature of the Libyan attack, was President Obama motivated in part by a desire to protect his counter-terrorism record? Perhaps. But either way, he made a decision that was arguably in the best interest of America.

Unfortunately, thanks to the GoP’s relentless efforts to politicize the matter, Ansar al-Sharia is now a household name." Cretins, each and every one.

I get it, ha, ha. Kind of like talking about Big Bird while Americans are being murdered. And then talking on a comedy show about the murders as not being optimal or being a bump in the road. Or joking about Romnesia while millions are out of work. That kind of noise.

Hypocrite Dem senate scumbag outed. Stiffs working girl.

Can you say Vetter?

DEADBEAT CLUB: Women: NJ Senator Bob Menendez paid us for sex in the Dominican Republic — and we only got 20% of what he promised. Now that’s just tacky. Unlike Menendez, these women earn their pay.

Anyway, this should be a boost for Menendez’s opponent, Joe Kyrillos. After all, this proves that it was really Menendez:

“He lies,” she said of Menendez.“He says one thing and does another.”

The campaign ads write themselves!

And what is it about corrupt members of Congress and the Dominican Republic?

UPDATE:“Sen. Menendez… did you vote for Lily Ledbetter but then underpay your prostitutes?”
