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 ... Read more

Let's look at the difference bewtween Bush and Obama.
1. Bush lied us into an unnecessary war, Obama didn't.
2. Bush outed a CIA agent, Obama didn't.
3. Bush approved military torture of prisoners, regardless of innocence. Obama did not.
4. Bush was in charge when America suffered its worst terror attack. No major terror attacks under Obama.
5. Bush led America to its worst recession since 1929. Obama is cleaning it up.
That's all you need to know.
Now run away behind a cloud of GOP squid ink.
The Democrats led Americans to the worst recession since 1929 via the Community Restoration Act, a liberal idea that every one should be able to own a home even if they couldn't afford one.Problem is weird things happen when you can't pay your mortgage.

Not going to let you get away with that mouthful of horse hockey.
In his campaign, Bush had said he thought the biggest security issue was Iraq and a national missile defense, Clinton said. "I told him that in my opinion, the biggest security problem was Osama bin Laden."
http://www.truthout.org/article/clinton-warne...
Between 1996 and 2001, federal spending on counterterrorism increased dramatically to more than $12 billion annually. The FBI's counterterrorism budget rose even more sharply, from $78 million in 1996 to $609 million in 2000, tripling the number of agents assigned to such activities and creating a new counterterrorism center at the bureau's Washington headquarters.
Recalcitrant Republicans, led by then-Senator John Ashcroft, defeated a potentially crucial White House initiative. Along with computer-industry lobbyists, they rejected proposals to tighten controls on encryption software and to ensure that law enforcement officials could crack the kind of coded messages found on the laptop owned by Ramzi Yusef.
The Clinton administration's attempts to improve airport security were similarly obstructed in Congress. The Gore commission urged U.S. air carriers to screen all passengers with computerized profiling systems, to upgrade poorly trained private security personnel and to install high-tech baggage-screening equipment.
Key senators on the Senate Aviation Subcommittee shot down mandated changes recommended by the White House and instead urged "further study." (Eight of the nine Republicans on the subcommittee had received contributions from the major airlines.)
Several months before Clinton left office, the federal Centers for Disease Control issued a $343 million contract for 40 million doses of smallpox vaccine, as part of a wide-ranging research and development program of defense against biological weapons. The Clinton administration also established a new stockpile of drugs, vaccines and medical supplies for use solely in national emergencies.
On Clinton's watch, the CIA instituted a special al-Qaida unit that thwarted several deadly conspiracies, including a scheme to blow up Los Angeles International Airport on Millennium Eve, and plots to bomb the Holland and Lincoln tunnels in New York, as well as the United Nations building. Timely intelligence also prevented a deadly assault on the Israeli embassy in Washington.

"Mr. Bin Laden used to live in Sudan ... And we’d been hearing that the Sudanese wanted America to start meeting with them again. They released him. At the time,'96, he had committed no crime against America so I did not bring him here because we had no basis on which to hold him, though we knew he wanted to commit crimes against America."

Who will the "Blamer-in-Chief" (the economy is Bush's fault, Benghazi is Hillary Clinton's fault, my wife's big ass is fast food's fault, etc.) blame his incompetence during this Sandy disaster on? Oh sure, he went to Atlantic City for a photo-op with "Double Whopper with Cheese" Cristie, but then what? He never visited New York where the real disasters have occurred. Instead he jetted off to campaign events in a state that wasn't affected at all by this historic, deadly storm. How can anybody even consider voting for this totally incompetent, clueless, self-centered moron?

Problem is, some folks are too stupid, greedy, oblivious, or all three, to know when NOT TO TAKE A MORTGAGE. I don't remember any news stories about banks that were holding .44 magnums to any customers' heads to get their names on the dotted line. That would have been some NEWS, now wouldn't it...

Obama believed his policies made the Muslim world, if not love us, at least see us as a friend of the downtrodden Muslims, hence the lax security at embassies and consulates. Armed Marines with
M-4s pointed towards the Muslim citizen didn't fit the Kumbaya image that Obama tried to project to the nation and the world. Bin Laden was taken out via intelligence gathered by policies implemented under George Bush.Obama just happened to be in office when bin Laden was found and according to the highly decorated former SEAL, Chris Kyle , the most lethal sniper in American history, Obama didn't make the call.Other former SEALS agree.
LOL

None of which refutes anything in the post you pretend to refute.

Here it is again:

__________

Whether McGovern would have won or lost is irrelevant. BURGLARY IS A CRIME. And worse, the CIA appears to have been in on it as they would in a black operation overseas.
<quoted text>
You idiots are so hopeless.
Exactly what would a standing president gain in allowing a successful terror attack?
Try to remember it was under Obama that Bin Laden was taken out.
As for your allegation against the CIA, PROOF PLEASE.
(Down goes Dumbo.)

__________

So let's see...

You don't deny my pointing out how irrelevant was your point that McGovern would have lost regardless of Watergate.

You don't deny that the burglary carried out at Watergate was a crime.

You don't deny my point that the CIA agents at Watergate were acting against the U.S. electoral process in the same manner as a black operation carried out in a foreign country.

You positively ran away from my challenge as to what Obama could possibly have gained from allowing a successful terror attack.

As for your claim that someone other than Obama gave the go-ahead for the strike on Obama, here you're clearly LYING.

Because the attack was on foreign soil and without Pakistan's permission. Approval obviously came from high up.

Well, now I've proven you only pretend to respond. And when your comments are closely examined they reveal you are a limp-wristed weakling with a fat mouth. You may now retire to the corner in abject embarrassment.

Many of the NYC Marathon "runners" are furious that the marathon was cancelled. "Many of us have traveled long distances and have hotel reservations." More so-called "compassion" from Obama loving liberals.

Because locking people up for what they 'might' do is so deeply entrenched in the Constitution, don't ya know....

I guess you think Clinton should have quietly hired a hit man, and left the Seals out of it....

Because they were too stubborn, stupid, or crazy to FRIGGING LEAVE before the damn storm hit. They had 4 days to get the hell outta there. What did they do? Bought a few 6-packs, a couple bags of Jay's potato crisps, and some frozen dinners....and said 'fluck the evacuation order.'

A hit man would have been just fine.

"Wright and the 9/11 Commission do agree that the Clinton administration encouraged Sudan to deport bin Laden back to Saudi Arabia and spent 10 weeks trying to convince the Saudi government to accept him. One Clinton security official told The Washington Post that they had "a fantasy" that the Saudi government would quietly execute bin Laden. When the Saudis refused bin Laden’s return, Clinton officials convinced the Sudanese simply to expel him, hoping that the move would at least disrupt bin Laden’s activities."

Sure it is if organizations like ACORN intimidated banks into making loans that were very high risk. Obama sued Citibank to make those kind of loans.
