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

Bush responded by attacking Afghanistan and sending the Taliban and bin Laden into the mountains and then bombarded the mountains.
The next threat on the UN's list was Saddam who they threatened with "serious consequences" after he had thumbed his nose up to the world 14 times.
The same Saddam Clinton and the democrats wanted to overthrow back in 1998.
Bottom line, Reagan armed Bin Laden, Bin Laden attacked America on Bush's watch and Bush could not catch him in 8 years and President Obama killed the bastard in his first term. Very impressive on the President's part.

As she should.

You do reallize Libya is a soverign nation??

Yet Obama should control events in all foreign nations, while Bush couldn't even protect America from attack??

OUR REPUBLIC
APRES ELECTION
Exclusive: Ben Kinchlow asks what citizens will do about 'taxation without representation'
The election is over. The president and members of Congress have been chosen. Now what?
Traditionally, the post-election period has been a time when we the bosses sit back and let the politicians get to work. As the refrain goes,“We have done our part; we elected them, now it’s up to them.” Apparently, the feeling is, and has been, now that they are elected we simply turn the government over to them. Nothing could be further from the truth. There is a fundamental question that must be answered: Why did we elect them?
...
The campaigns (clean or dirty, efficient or not) are history. The billions have been spent; the president (and your representatives) are congratulating each other and their staffs. We the People have “done our part.” We voted them in, and now? Now, it is up to us to ensure they are representing us (the House of Representatives, remember?), carrying out our desires and not overstepping their boundaries.
Just one more example:
No Money shall be drawn from the Treasury, but in Consequence of Appropriations made by Law; and a regular Statement and Account of the Receipts and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published from time to time.”(Article 1, The Legislative Branch Section 9, Limits on Congress; emphasis added)
When is the last time you saw an “expenditures of all public monies … published”?
Let’s make this perfectly clear: There is no such thing as “government money.”
All the monies Washington spends are public money – our money.
The president and Congress are spending, lending, giving away our money – which they take from us via taxation.

Yeah, honestly Florida was the one swing state other than NC I thought might go to Romney. I thought he sufficently scared enough of the elder voters, Homer did not factor in the larger Hispanic and youth vote there. Everything else pretty much went as expected.

If you thought about it, you'd know it was all bullspit.
Far easier to accept the Gov't drivel, as it was concerning th e'Sneak Attack' on Pearl Harbor that our Gov't knew about at least three days before the actual attack.
There is Congressional testimony from the Admiral at Pearl, asking why the Gov't didn't relay the info that an American Sub had spotted an enormous Japanese task force steaming directly towards the Hawaiian Islands.
The best way to get an unwilling public to back a war is to stage a false flag event.
See the Maine in 1898, the Lusitania in 1915, The Tonkin Gulf nonsense, etc.
I'm kinda surprised at your lack of curiosity.
Such a conspiracy would have required tremendous planning and scores of personnel___people talk.

The terrorists lead by Mo Atta spent their last seconds on earth wondering how it could have been so fkn easy.

Will add that Flight 93 passengers confirmed how effective boxcutters in combination with planned suicide can be. Flight 93 was also successful even though it never reached it's target.

Constituencies as far back as 1780, have expressed the same fear that their 'way of life' was over, following the National Elections. THEY WERE PROVEN WRONG TOO. The only thing that is 'over', as far as this country's concerned, is the 2012 election cycle, and possibly the continued relevance of certain political parties.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

YOU Repubs so worry about Obama. Doesn't matter about him. He's NOT what has brought the country down. Obama never handed out bad home loans. The rich bankers did that. Obama never sold bundled bad loans to the world on the stock market. The Billionaires Wall St. hedge fund managers did that. Obama never packed up a factory and shipped it to China. The millionaire CEOs running the companies did that. Obama never drilled for US oil and then loaded it in tankers bound for China. The billionaires of Exxon do that each day. You people are not looking for the people responsible for EACH and Everything that has gone bad for the US over the past 20 years.
.Did the Repubs do any of these things I just listed? No. But here is how they help.
.
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans, united in opposition to the Democrats’ legislation to tighten regulation of the financial system, voted on Monday to block the bill from reaching the floor for debate.
.
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked the No.1 item on the president's congressional "to-do-list," refusing to allow a vote on a bill that would give tax breaks for companies that "insource" jobs to the U.S. from overseas while eliminating tax deductions for companies that move jobs abroad.
.
Washington (CNN)-- Senate Republicans on Thursday blocked a Democratic measure championed by President Barack Obama to end tax breaks for the major oil companies.
.
Senate Republicans today defeated Democratic legislation designed to help veterans get jobs, complaining that the measure violates budget rules.

Wrong again, Skippy. You are a moron, liar & idiot:
FIRST LADY OF LUXURY TRAVEL: THE COSTLY TRIPS
SPAIN: AUGUST 2010
Michelle Obama and 40 of her friends paid for personal expenses, such as hotels and meals themselves.
But the U.S. taxpayer would have paid for the 68-strong security detail, personal staff and use of presidential jet Air Force Two.
Payment for the secret service team ran at around $281 each - nearly $98,000 for the duration of the summer break.
Use of Air Force Two comes in at $149,900 for the round trip, not including time on the ground.
Mrs Obama's personal staff, of which there were an unknown number, should also be taken into account
HAWAII: DECEMBER 2010
According to the Hawaii Reporter the costs were:
$63,000 on an early flight bringing Mrs Obama and the children to Hawaii ahead of the President
$1,000,000 on Mr Obama’s return trip from Washington on Air Force One
$16,000 to rent nearby homes for Secret Service and Navy Seals
$134,000 for 24 White House staff to stay at the Moana Hotel
$251,000 in police overtime
$10,000 for an ambulance to be on hand at all times
SKI TRIP TO VAIL: FEBRUARY 2011
Michelle Obama and her daughters stayed at the
Sebastian hotel on Vail Mountain, where rooms cost more than $2,400 for multi-bedroom suites.
The family appear to have flown there on Air Force Two. They were escorted to the resort by about a dozen vehicles, including 15 state and local law enforcement officers.
Whine all you want, moonbat.

You're a certified liar and loser.

You lost. STFU and deal with it.

Try figuring out why you're so out-of-touch with the American electorate.

Could be because you're so freakin' old, loser!!

The president has to raise a trillion dollars in revenues over the first 10 years and more in later years to cover the cost of the federal health care law. The state law Romney signed didn't raise taxes at all.
Obama has to raise taxes on health care plans, health insurers and medical device manufacturers.
Massachusetts, a small state, had 8 percent uninsured. Obamacare changes the entire health care system in one bill trying to cover an entire nation of 46 million uninsured.
Romney care penalized small businesses with $295 per year with less than 10 employees. Obamacare penalizes small businesses with $2000 per employee with more than 50 employees.
It's amazing to me how many people criticize Romneycare but support Obamacare when they should be magnifying their criticism of Obamacare by 100 fold.

That's what Republicans should do. Creating a gridlock to prevent the worst from happening will backfire. Liberals will blame them and have a scapegoat. They need to get out of the way, let the worst happen and come out on top blameless in 2014 and 2016. That's what I think anyway.
The American people have made their decision.
