Yeah, but who cares? The Boy Messiah is a celebrity! Dontcha know? Just watch Access Hollywood or ET where all of the serious governmental policy issues are discussed thoroughly, dumbed down and fed to the lilly's of this country. Or you can watch a comedian to get the real story about where our country is headed. David Letterman will screw all the female members of his staff while claiming fidelity to his wife and all the while promoting the Jerk-In-Chief as America's Boy Messiah. David is s-o-o-o wise and authoritative!!! We love 'em!
It all fits so nicely, doesn't it?
I wonder if Madonna is still going to "strip naked" to celebrate his re-election like she said she would. Sure don't want to miss that! Madonna displaying her old shriveled-up scarecrowness for all the world to see! What a tribute!

People have always taken handouts. The difference now is that the democrat leadership encourages taking handouts. It all began with LBJ's "Great Society".

Republicans don't want to lay down on the tracks. They are pushing for a deal. Democrats are prepared to go over the slope, not a cliff if right cards are not dealt.

Mayor Bloomberg's gas rationing plan is working well. Today is even number day, i.e. if you plate ends in an even number you can buy gas today. Odd number and "vanity" plates can buy gas tomorrow. Strangely though, local police are saying that a sudden rash of thefts are being reported from people missing even numbered plates. Wow, I wonder who could have forseen that?!!

And getting number.
1 - In your mind president nobama knows all, how could he have failed to know that
2 - The president, nobama, made a promise. He did not keep his promise, he lied. Are you inferring he did not know the law? He did not realize hos powers are limited? He did not know we have 3 equal branches of government?
3 - Transparent? Surely you are BSing? He was really transparent a few days ago when he did not notify the American public that Iran had fired on an American drone that was in international waters. The transparency from his administration about the activities in Libya? The transparency in passing the nobamakare disaster in the middle of the night, a bill no one had even read?
You and transparency are bosum buddies nither of you know crap from beans, you have nary a thought of your own, you are a very simple troll.

1) If you had a brain,which is doubtful, you would know that during the vast majority of the 2008 campaign that both candidates acknowledged only a slight slow down looming. It wasn't until the Bush press conference when we learned about TARP that we knew how dire it was.

If I tell my wife that I am mowing the grass tomorrow& a big storm blows in & I can't, it doesn't make me a liar.

2) So you are calling Mitt Romney a liar because he couldn't have done any of the stuff he said without Congress.

3) He said more transparent. Try to keep up. It is more transparent than the Bush or Clinton administration.

Why does Obama like to divert attention to his daughters so much as if they are the only girls in the USA? He wants everybody to look at his daughters as if they are God's gift to USA?

Tony Blair had young children and (a baby) at
No. 10 Downing Street but one rarely saw anything about them in newpapers and TV. But then again the mature UK is not the immature USA. Did Clinton divert attention to his then young daughter?

On the issue of black Americans and Obama - I dont understand why black Americans are so into Obama who doesnt give a shit about anybody when they have brains in Condoleeza Rice, one of their very own...who can have black Americans get off their asses, get education, acquire exportable skills and get jobs, IF they listen to her. You have to have third world mentality to vote a president for welfare. Here in SA rats from the shacks vote ANC for welfare because they dont want to get off welfare. They are the equivalent of USA's ghetto rats.

Black Americans are stupid to let politics divide them, which is the reason they isolate Condoleeza Rice (and other intelligent black Americans i.e. Jendayi Fraser) and treat her like an alien. Just because Jendayi Fraser was GW Bush's ambassador to SA and then envoy for Africa doesnt make her bad or an enemy of black Americans. Grow up negroes...!

You can't get any dumber. It's called the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. If signed by Obama and ratified by the legislature, it will make the ownership of any firearm by a private citizen ILLEGAL in any of the participating countries. It's Obama's shrewd way of bypassing the Supreme Court's 2010 ruling and the 2nd Amendment. Make no mistake, he WILL sign it. Whether or not it gets ratified remains to be seen.

The Republicans should rock their own boat and field Condoleeza Rice.

That would cause a political upset of the century, a shocker of the lifetime.

I dont care who says what I like Condoleeza Rice. Looks like she somewhat prefers the background. And then you have the forward airheads in the likes of Obama.

Clinton is a strong contender and deserves a chance or two, the thing is Americans sound tired of the Clintons, but this crisis needs strong characters like them.

Very funny. Unlike aircraft, these drones are extremely difficult to detect. Some of them are very small and because they operate at such high altitudes, they are difficult to see and impossible to hear. And unlike aircraft, they can stay on station for days (and nights, they have night-vision optics) at a time. Because of camera technology, some are capable of reading a newspaper from an altitude of over 5 miles. But that's ok, like you libs like to say, if you're not doing anything wrong then you have nothing to hide.

Popular? Yes, hes a celebrity and should go to Hollywood.

He got your vote, WHY? The issue is not the vote but the reason for giving him the vote. Many dont know why they gave him their votes. Others voted him for tax cuts, welfare, etc, bad and shortsighted reasons if you ask me.

Popularity doesnt translate into effectiveness, competence and decisiveness. Obama is ineffective, incompetent and indecisive.

Tell me something, whats good and new under Obama in the US?
