Barack Obama, our next President

This Boy Messiah is great with photo-ops with his shirt sleeves rolled up and unbuttoned shirts. But in the real world, he plays golf, rubs shoulders with Hollywood celebs and sings Al Green on the Letterman Show.
We need a President. We don't have one.
I agree. We have one who likes the idea of being president and all the perks that come with it but doesn't have what it takes to actually be one.

He reads briefings instead of attends briefing meetings. He shuts out those who represent half the country on Capital Hill and tells their constituents to get in the back of the bus. He doesn't like answering the hard questions but goes on celebrity talk shows to answer questions about his underwear and favorite Mexican food. He gets in front of a camera at every opportunity and puts his foot in his mouth to create more problems and derisiveness. He won't call terrorism what it is but wants to give terrorists their day in court while accelerating the use of drones that terrorizes innocents. He wants our soldiers to fight an enemy with one hand tied behind their backs. He promises to cut the budget in half by the end of his first term and says he will not run for a second term if he can't live up to his promise.

He simply doesn't know what he's doing. He's in too far over his head, always has been and will be again another four years.

But as long as Valerie Jarrett is giving him his marching orders, he's going to hang in there and continue to be the front man for those behind the scenes who are really in power.

I believe that just as sure as I'm sitting here. I didn't trust this president any further than I could throw him from day one. That hasn't changed one single bit.

Romney/Ryan = Real leadership and solutions.

Obama's Katrina
With temperatures dipping into the 30s overnight and close to 700,000 homes and businesses in New York City, its northern suburbs and Long Island still without electricity [now seven] days after the storm, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned that many homes are becoming uninhabitable and that tens of thousands of people are going to need other places to stay.
Fears of crime, especially at night in darkened neighborhoods, persisted. Officers in the Midland Beach section of Staten Island early Saturday saw a man in a Red Cross jacket checking the front doors of unoccupied houses and arrested him on a burglary charge.
After complaints about people posing as utility workers to gain access to people’s homes, police on Long Island reminded residents that most repair work will be done outside so legitimate workers usually have no need to enter a home.

Who needs electricity anyway? Electricity is over-rated. Coal-fired plants do nothing but destroy the environment and thousands of Americans die from radiation sickness from nuclear plants every year. The Amish have the right idea. Heck, Obama's brother in Kenya doesn't have electricity and he does just fine. I say go back to the days of wood stoves and candlelight. America was a much better, happier place in those days.

Conservatives Are Being Taken For a Ride By Romney, and They Don’t Care

What we do know is that a vote for Romney is a major defeat of populist politics inside the GOP. He is the embodiment of everything that conservative populists claim to dislike about the current political class. Whatever conservative populists have tried to promote in the last twenty or thirty years, Romney has typically been against it before he was for it, and even once he is for the things that some conservative populists want there is no reason to believe that he will do anything to advance their preferred policies. Even now, he is often on the side of those in the Republican Party that wish that conservative populists didn’t exist.

When it comes to photo ID laws, Republicans at least have the outward semblance of an argument: they're trying to prevent voter fraud. There's no evidence of more than a tiny handful of people ever committing the kind of fraud that photo ID would stop, but at least it's an argument. But pair that up with the recent jihad against early voting hours, and even the pretense of an argument goes away. There's nothing these two things have in common except for their unusually negative impact on demographic groups—including blacks, Hispanics, students, and the poor—that tend to vote for Democrats. It's the GOP's last-ditch effort to stave off demographic apocalypse.
Is there any kind of silver lining here? Probably not, but if there is one, it's this: it might backfire. The GOP has been so ravenous in its desire to suppress the vote of groups it doesn't like that it might make them more motivated than ever to vote. We'll see.

If they can get to the polls to vote, they sure as hell could have gotten somewhere and received a picture ID.

How does one exist in this country if you cannot prove your identity, to rent a home, to drive a car, to cash a check, to sign up for "gubment" programs.

Here's a simple thought. When the voter rolls are checked at the polls, the identity of the voter is verified. That way people can't vote for their aunt who passed away, for their neighbor they know will not vote, for someone they paid not to show up at the polls.

What is the problem?????????? And, seriously, why do you feel republications can figure out how to carry ID and democrats cannot. Are you a raaaacist?

I bet you are correct. But it's kind of strange. Most everyone at The Villages get a government check each month and almost all of them are on that universal government health care called Medicare.

The jobs numbers came out on Friday, slightly higher than expected. Unemployment up to 7.9%

The .1% uptick reflected the bureau of labor's anticipation of the unemployment stemming from the loss for the Romney campaign today.

Oh yeah, it's true. Cannot lie, cheat or steal THIS election!

Romney can just head to the caymans and curl up and cry with his money after this is all over.

Poor pathetic sad evil soulless man...

Crock of BS. First of all, we here in Florida did NOT HAVE our early voting days rolled back. All days were available by law to us, and the law says early voting ends 3 days prior to election. So there's a big FAT lie.
Secondly, how on earth is tea party presence going to "intimidate and harass voters?" It's not like the black panthers who stand outside with WEAPONS for Pete's sake. Li'l ol' Republican ladies standing around observing isn't much of a threat, in my book.
Long lines? Traditional on the traditional actual election Tuesday.
You guys need to "stand down," you're beginning to look silly.
If Obama wins then we'll be talking about a whole bunch of right wing 'silly'.

Why you folks walk out on these limbs is beyond me. Gluttons for punishment?
