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

Conservatives were at a disadvantage because Romney supporters like Jennifer Rubin and Hugh Hewitt saw it as their duty to spin constantly for their favored candidate rather than being frank about his strengths and weaknesses. What conservative Washington Post readers got, when they traded in Dave Weigel for Rubin, was a lot more hackery and a lot less informed about the presidential election.

Conservatives were at an information disadvantage because so many right-leaning outlets wasted time on stories the rest of America dismissed as nonsense. WorldNetDaily brought you birtherism. Forbes brought you Kenyan anti-colonialism. National Review obsessed about an imaginary rejection of American exceptionalism, misrepresenting an Obama quote in the process, and Andy McCarthy was interviewed widely about his theory that Obama, aka the Drone Warrior in Chief, allied himself with our Islamist enemies in a "Grand Jihad" against America. Seriously?

Conservatives were at a disadvantage because their information elites pandered in the most cynical, self-defeating ways, treating would-be candidates like Sarah Palin and Herman Cain as if they were plausible presidents rather than national jokes who'd lose worse than George McGovern.

How many months were wasted on them?

How many hours of Glenn Beck conspiracy theories did Fox News broadcast to its viewers? How many hours of transparently mindless Sean Hannity content is still broadcast daily? Why don't Americans trust Republicans on foreign policy as they once did? In part because conservatism hasn't grappled with the foreign-policy failures of George W. Bush. A conspiracy of silence surrounds the subject. Romney could neither run on the man's record nor repudiate it. The most damaging Romney gaffe of the campaign, where he talked about how the 47 percent of Americans who pay no income taxes are a lost cause for Republicans? Either he was unaware that many of those people are Republican voters, or was pandering to GOP donors who are misinformed. Either way, bad information within the conservative movement was to blame.

Great news for Obama. This week's unemployment claims in New York City are zero, that's right ZERO. President Obama is expected to take credit for the low number of unemployment claims. Local Democrats are praising Obama for turning New York's sluggish economy around, despite the recent storms. Mayor Bloomberg said, "This is a great day for our city."

(The power has been out at the Manhattan unemployment office since Sandy hit.)

Romney wasn't the ideal candidate. But in this economy, a proven businessman seemed to most of us a clear no-brainer.
Keep in mind the democrats have no one to blame anymore. It's the democrat party whose fate is really on the line. Not the other way around.
Proven businessman? LOL! Accumulation of wealth is only one measure of success. "No brainer" is an apt description.

I watched it live when Rove argued with and disparaged fox's numbers guys.
When they sent the dumb blond down to confront the guy about them calling Ohio for Obama, and he said I'm 99.95% sure that republicans don't have the votes, she almost shit herself.
Rove’s On-Air Rebuttal of Fox’s Ohio Vote Call Raises Questions About His Role

Mr. Rove has not addressed the episode on Fox News since Tuesday night. He appeared on the network on Wednesday, in an interview on “Fox & Friends,” but he was not asked about his mistake.

not asked? no doubt.

Bush went and hid why attacks happened...
Your post is flat our lies....Obama after the attack was done did tell troops to stand down and not counter attack until we found out who did it.....You dont start shooting until you know who to shoot at....
Tell you what..You can rant and bang your head againt the poster of hitler on your wall all day for next 4 years...Or you cna join us patriots and help rebuild this nation and create jobs and make America great again after the destruction Bush and the GOP did...takes time to recover from the GOp deprsssion...LETS GET TO WORK......OK??
Best defense is to shoot at the people shooting at you...find out their complete birth names and favorite colors later.

Just how long do you figure it will take Obama to rebuild and create? Extrapolate from what he's done in the last incredibly long four years to improve job-creating businesses in this country and get back to us.

And, who will he blame when its still a slow slough for him THIS term? He's been "thinking 'bout" this for four long years now, will he finally implement something worthwhile? Will he "not rest," (i.e., less golf time and fewer Hollywood parties), until we see some GENUINE improvement?

I heard that when you learned you'd be drafted, you pissed yourself. Ran crying to your mommy who changed your underwear for you & sent you to the Navy Recruiter.
See, if had the money & influence, you could have joined the National Guard like Bush.
Don't you feel guilty that the guy who was drafted to take your slot might have been killed or wounded or MIA?

"10:05 p.m.(4:05 p.m. ET): An alert from the State Department Operations Center is issued to a number of government and intelligence agencies, including the White House Situation Room, the office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the FBI. "US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack" -- "approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM (Chief of Mission/embassy) personnel are in the compound safe haven."
"11 p.m.(5 p.m. ET): Just ahead of the weekly meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey, White House National Security Advisor Tom Donilon tells President Obama of the attack and the fire at the main villa. The president is updated several times throughout the evening."
so, what you are saying is that president obama wanted those people dead? so, you are saying president obama does not care about the american ambassador. if, that's what you are saying. that will make you a complete fool.

Obscure? They were running for the U.S. Senate!
Did Romney condemn them? No, he endorsed them.
Rape, rape, rape; a word used everyday by one republican or another, the women heard the threats.
You sickos want women to beg and prove that they were raped before getting an abortion! You sickos want to force women to have the rapists baby! You sickos have passed laws in 31 states allowing the rapist to sue for visitation rights!
Go away you mental cases. Thanks to those "obscure" nutcases and their rape threats, the Democrats maintained the majority in the Senate; for that I am greatful.
If you are grateful, why aren't you any happier and why don't you sound any nicer? Just wondering.

<quoted text>And the difference is that Mr. Akin will never be 'blessed' with a pregnancy of any origin - rape or otherwise.
I'll give Akin this though - at least he's consistent. If abortion is going to be illegal, in order to eschew hypocrisy, it should be illegal across the board. Why should a fetus conceived in rape be eliminated, and the fetus conceived through consensual sex be mandated to gestate?
A pregnancy is only a 'blessing' if the woman feels blessed. Which, and this is the kicker, MOST WOMEN DO. The vast majority of women who become pregnant WANT TO BE. Some, however, do not. It should ultimately, and ALWAYS, be the woman's decision whether or not to become a mother. Why would anyone want to legally obligate a living, breathing, CHILD be born to someone who DOESN'T WANT THEM?
All children should be born to loving parents. To force a child into a situation where s/he is more likely to be abused, abandoned, exploited, molested, ignored, or unloved, is insane.
Thank God or your lucky star sis, that most ABs occur in the 1st trimester when the child is ONLY JUST fully formed and human in every way except size/extra-uterine viability(that means can survive for "dave") has few complex thoughts and mostly dreams of what causes the movement in my 'home' and "I am hungry" somehow all the time, and" what is this thumb in my mouth all about?-I like that!".

Unfortunately most ABS are Dilatation and Curettage (D&C) where the contents of the uterus, the baby are eliminated at all gestational ages. Shockingly, ninety-six per cent of the more than 140,000 second-trimester abortions performed annually in the USA are accomplished by the technique of dilation and evacuation (D&C) which is dismemberment in utero, again for "dave".

"NEW YORK, New York, January 5, 2012 ( )– With the highest abortion rate in the nation, nearly double the 23% national average, New York continues to be a place that babies in the womb cannot love.

New York City Department of Health released data that shows that 83,750 abortions were performed in New York City in 2010, which translated to 40% of all pregnancies, down from 41% in 2009.

The Bronx saw a staggering 48% of pregnancies end in abortion. The city lost 38,574 African-Americans babies to abortion, a dumbfounding 60% of the city’s African-American pregnancies."

I have some inside baseball on this subject and can tell you with 100% certainty( a true rarity in Medicine) that in 30yrs + of dealings with early pregnancies I have NEVER, not evenonce, had a mother say," I can I see the fetus" when I preform ultrasound for fetal viability on her unborn BABY in the ER!

PS. word for the day: ADOPTION.

Now, go iron my shirt!
