Barack Obama, our next President

Well, it's been two weeks since the disaster in the northeast. Still no power, still no FEMA (they won't even answer the phone and the few FEMA do-nothings that are there aren't allowed to speak to the press) and still no comments from Obama. He has to hold his nose today and place a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Maybe he'll call Bloomberg and Cristy after that and ask them how things are going. Probably not though. It's a pretty good day for golf.

It makes sense that Mitt Romney and his advisers are still gobsmacked by the fact that they’re not commandeering the West Wing.
Team Romney has every reason to be shellshocked. Its candidate, after all, resoundingly won the election of the country he was wooing.
Mitt Romney is the president of white male America.
...
In its delusional death spiral, the white male patriarchy was so hard core, so redolent of country clubs and Cadillacs, it made little effort not to alienate women. The election had the largest gender gap in the history of the Gallup poll, with Obama winning the vote of single women by 36 percentage points.
As W.’s former aide Karen Hughes put it in Politico on Friday,“If another Republican man says anything about rape other than it is a horrific, violent crime, I want to personally cut out his tongue.”
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/11/opinion/sun...
Why didn't she and the rest of the Republican women say so before? Why didn't Mitt denounce them?
It's too late , we all know what they stand for. Anti women, anti abortion, anti gay,anti black, anti Latino,
Anti everyone besides rich old white angry anoles who think they can buy an election.

If that is your position, then we can easily blame Reagan and Bush.
After all they armed Bin Laden to fight the Russians as a proxy for America.
It was all love between Bin Laden and America and then a disagreement happened which triggered 911.
In Obama's world, 9-11 was just an act of workplace violence.

your ignorance and denial of climate science is astounding.

Why not get to the point and change your name to "I'm stupid, I believed FAUX propaganda"??

It would fit your brain dead persona far better.

Not my fault FOX failed. I think we can lay that one back on FOX. If you have something to say, speaking to the majority might be a plan. Catering to the fringe is a plan for failure.

It's not going to happen. Obamacare alone will disspell the magic.
Sadly, Florida was right. The culture is easily duped.
That explains the circular firing squad over at FAUX, right??

FAUX fed you nitwits a line of bullshit a mile long, and you ate it up.

Unfortunately, you were taken for a sucker, just as the boys in high school did with you.

Romney's off the record remark hurt him, no doubt.
Most of the 47% are victims of government dependency but are still afraid of losing what the government provides as long as there are no jobs. He wasn't talking about Medicare and SS recipients even though they were lumped in with the rest.
It was an unfortunate remark but it was a referral to the percentage he believed would not vote for him. Even though Romney came out immediately and said he was dead wrong, the damage had been done.
There is far too much dependency in this country and it's only going to get worse.
Most Americans should have been able to figure that out in spite of Romney's poor choice of words.
Apparently, most Americans have no problem with the government taking care of them instead of the government getting out of the way so they can find another job.
Why are most of those Americans living in Red states?

And why do they insist on insulting the paymaster?

From all indications, Boehner is not going to stand in Obama's way. I hope he doesn't. Whatever happens will be your party's baby. If we're going over the cliff, Republicans should get out of the way to be blameless.
It might be what has to happen for America to finally wake up once and for all. We'll pick up the pieces in 2016 when the democrat party is no more if we survive.
Sure Carol, you've been so totally spot on with your predictions so far haven't you? And as usual you changed the subject. The discussion wasn't about the fiscal cliff but the Romney/Ryan tax plan which didn't add up and would further enrich the already wealthy and put additional burdens on the middle class and the poor.
The fiscal cliff belongs to the Republicans. If it wasn't for the Bush tax cuts and two wars, one of them totally unnecessary we wouldn't even be having this conversation. When then Treasury Secretary Paul O'Neal cautioned that the tax cuts would increase the deficit he was told by Dick Cheney that "deficits don't matter".
Americans including Republicans by a two to one margin agree that the wealthiest should be paying more in taxes but Republican's allegiance doesn't belong to them it belongs to a millionaire lobbyist named Grover Norquist.
If we do go over the cliff then the president and Democrats can introduce legislation to cut taxes to the middle class and dare the Republicans to block them. That would be the final death knell for the GOP.

Three democrat presidents - Roosevelt, Kenney and Clinton - all had both public and numerous extramarital affairs.
J. Edgar Hoover supposedly had a gay relationship.
There was more to this resignation - especially since Patreaus first said he would testify at the Benghazi hearings but now he's sending someone else in his place.
Just like Hillary will conveniently be out of the country during the hearings.
The Benghazi official time line is out there for anyone to read. Unlike the mystifying right wing version the official version makes perfectly good sense.

Perhaps the consulate needed more and/or better security, perhaps it's stupid to have a large (30 plus agent) CIA base in an area known to harbor a multitude of Islamic terror factions.

The POTUS is elected, in Clinton's case the planet new he was c-hound and was still elected over the hapless Bush I. The CIA director is appointed and dalliances, particularly with journalistic types is definitely grounds for dismissal.

The upcoming hearings will be painful for right wing trash like you to watch.

FEMA doesn't have anything to do with restoring power imbecile, it's the responsibility of the largely private sector power companies. Also damaged homes need to be inspected before power can be restored to them. It doesn't make sense to hook up electricity to a house only to have it burn down due to damaged wiring does it moron?
You're an idiot!

People like you take advantage of the Gov't.

Like your daughter's student loans.

How about the Gov't program that funded your daughters time spent in NY, a Federal program??

No, our good Carol does not use Gov't services to make her life easier.

You're such a fat little phony, Carol.

Still in denial after 4 years and losing 2 elections, you blame the winners for being wrong.

Even your home state went to Obama. TP Allen West lost. Many TP candidates lost. THe TP is effectively dead.

Deal with it, and STFU!!

I thought you were a veteran??

Veterans support Obama, here's why;

Eric Shinseki, VA Chief, Charts Solid Gains For Veterans

" WASHINGTON -- After Eric Shinseki took over a sleepy Department of Veterans Affairs four years ago, he decided some change was due. For one thing, those 154,000 homeless veterans living as beggars on the streets.

After some study, Shinseki, a decorated Vietnam veteran wounded twice in battle, ordered that the VA would not just reduce veteran homelessness -- it would end it. And end it by 2015.

The bureaucrats of the VA, a sprawling $140 billion empire that operates the nation's largest integrated health care system, sends veterans to college, insures their lives, guarantees their home mortgages and manages their burials, weren’t used to having someone over their heads barking orders. They certainly weren’t used to publicly announced deadlines.

"When I put that out, there was a lot of wind being sucked through teeth," Shinseki told The Huffington Post during a rare interview.

In combat, he explained, commanders never have perfect knowledge, never have enough time, never enough resources. "Sometimes you just gotta launch, and fight your way through the unknowns," he said.

That approach -- setting high goals, announcing them to the public, and then challenging and enabling people to reach them, marks Shinseki's tenure as VA secretary on this Veterans Day, nearly four years after he was drafted out of retirement by then President-elect Barack Obama. It may be that despite his many critics, the VA under Shinseki is nailing down reforms and expansion of services that have eluded previous VA chiefs for years.

In his first interview granted to a national news organization, Shinseki took time to ask that everyone take time Sunday to thank a veteran. "Don't hesitate -- just say thanks … this is the perfect opportunity. More importantly, if you are in a position to hire, hire a veteran. They will be the best employees you have."

Among his achievements so far: moving 31,000 chronically homeless veterans off the streets and into permanent housing last year and enrolling them in health treatment, substance abuse programs and job training. That work has dropped the homeless veteran population to 65,000 and put the agency on track to achieve Shinseki's 2015 goal on time, said Vincent Kane, director of the VA's homeless programs. "The end of 2015," Kane stressed.

It looks as if the VA will achieve another major Shinseki goal that sent gasps through the bureaucracy: ending the notorious backlog of pension and compensation claims by 2013.

The results, he stresses, have been achieved by the agency's 300,000 employees working under his management credo. "I have spent a lifetime watching kids make mistakes," he said, "because they were not trained or well led or properly motivated to do well. I never faulted the kids; rather, I saw opportunity to train, to motivate, to improve leadership -- not to punish the individual." Seeking to instill the same approach inside the VA, Shinseki started its first leadership training program.

But daunting challenges lie ahead as the VA struggles to serve two vastly different generations: the aging veterans of World War II, Korea and Vietnam, whose need for geriatric care is dramatically driving up the VA's health care costs, and the younger Americans surging off the battlefields of Iraq and Afghanistan.

----------

After Bush ignored veterans issues, the scandal at Walter Reed Hospital - all under Bush.

But you're angry because Obama spends more money to help our veterans.

You never answered the 'sweepers question'. You never served your nation.

You're a complete fraud.
