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

Fifty plus years of living let me know the republicans are a racist party. Yes there are black members in the the republican party. However, they are less than five percent of the party. Also, this is perfect example of why I know republicans are racist:

You walked into that partner.
Ok, you're a bit older than me, but that video doesn't prove anything. You have one primary source there, and who's to say he's a credible source? Having more primary sources with the same view point would be a more convincing argument. MSNBC is not somewhere you should go to get your news, they are a far left network with socialist views, and they are owned by a company that the president sponsors, so thats hardly a convincing argument. There is a bias there and a complete conflict of interest.

I don't blame you for you point of view, if you feel like I'm brainwashed, then more power to you. I used to be a liberal also, until I realized that people need to be accountable for themselves. It's not my responsibility to take care of someone who doesn't want to work. Does that make me a racist? I'm mostly black BTW. The funniest thing happened to me today. I was in a 7-11 getting a coffee, and a heavyset black woman goes up to the counter with her welfare card, she tried to use the card, and it was declined. She sits there for minutes arguing with Kumar or whatever his name was, saying that she has money on the card. For me, that was embarrassing, because this black woman was obviously an able bodied individual who could be working, but instead, shes living off of my and your (assuming you work)tax dollars. You obviously voted for Obama, and yes I'm proud to have a Black President, but I didn't vote for him, especially just because he's black. I work hard for everything I have. Why can't others work hard too.
Do you think it's acceptable for people to make excuses for their own well being? Voting for socialist policies is detrimental to us, you make think it helps to have the government on your side, but its actually working against those who should be trying to better themselves, instead they live off the government and that gives them zero incentive to improve their standard of life. Maybe you're the one who's brainwashed, you're doing exactly what the current government wants you to do, supporting socialism, and for what? Welfare? Free Birth Control and Free Cell phones? Come on bro, you know better than that!

Le Figaro (Paris) reported Friday that a French-organized international military intervention in northern Mali is in the works.-- The government of François Hollande, pushing hard on the matter, is letting it be known that it is "only a matter of weeks" before its first phase is engaged, with the impending rainy season in Mali adding urgency to the situation.-- Paris, however, which "claims to be breaking with past 'Françafrique' practices" and "doesn't want to hear once again about its colonial past," is "refusing to be on the front line," Isabelle Lasserre said.-- And major difficulties have not been resolved, a meeting of the Support and Follow-up Group on Mali in Bamako showed on Friday: for the time being "the situation appears deadlocked both because of confusion over the sharing of power in Bamako after the March putsch and because of international disagreements over whether it is a good idea to engage in dialogue with the rebels before using force." -- And the U.S. is playing a larger role than originally expected: "Remaining until recently in the background on the Sahel matter, the United States has changed its position since the attack on its diplomatic representatives in Benghazi on Sept. 11, which caused the death, in 'atrocious conditions,' of Ambassador Chris Stevens.'The Sahel has become a stake for the Americans. They now want to be more closely associated with the intervention,' confirms a source close to the French Ministry of Defense who has spoken at length with his American counterpart, Leon Panetta. The Americans, which have armed drones in the region, are no longer ruling out intervening directly in the north of Mali, for example by carrying out armed strikes on targets." ...

Good News!! Corrupt Attorney General Eric Holder, the one who, along with Obama, is responsible for the death of Agent Brian Terry and countless Mexican citizens and who also refused to prosecute Obama's Black Panthers, may be resigning before his past catches up with him.
Bad News. Obama might replace him with corrupt Mass. Governor Deval Patrick, who has more skeletons in his closet than his other choice, Janet Napolitano. America will continue to get beat down under this lame excuse for a president.
And the right wing lies just keep coming!

"Fast and Furious" was an unauthorized rogue operation that Holder shut down.
Who's responsible for those deaths? George W Bush and his GOP Congress who let the federal assault weapons ban lapse, Republican dominated legislatures like that in Arizona who allow the bulk purchases of these weapons and most of all the NRA which fights tooth and nail to prevent any regulation of these weapons.
Criminal charges against the New Black Panther Party were dropped by the Bush Administration before Holder was even confirmed. Why? Because there were no complaints of voter intimidation probably because these guys were there scaring away right wing poll "watchers" who regularly harass minority voters.
And what skeletons does Devall Patrick have in his closet nitwit? He's been a successful governor in Massachusetts for two terms and has legal experience both in the Clinton Justice Department and in the private sector.
You're an idiot!

The bigger cost will be put on employers who will be required to offer insurance plans if they have 51 employees or more. Field said most large companies already provide coverage, but the change will be bigger for medium-sized companies.
There is some concern that the fees employers have to pay may be transferred either to the employee or the customer through more expensive services and goods. Whether the ACA will cut into salaries is unknown right now.
http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-204_162-57546684/...
Everytime the government adds more fees and taxes, that's usually what happens. It gets passed on to the customer and, in this case, the employee.
Yes Carol, and Romneycare also had employer mandates with penalties for failure to comply. Has that had any adverse effects on business in Massachusetts? No.

Can you be any more hypocritical or have a more askewed perspective?
If Boehner let's Obama have his way, you won't have anyone to blame anymore and that scares the you-know-what out of you.
Look who the hell is talking! If Boehner gives in then the tax rates on those making over $250,000 a year go up, which is what the American people favor by a 2 to 1 margin, to the Clinton era levels and taxes for the rest of us stay the same. Multiple CRS studies have shown that raising taxes on the wealthy will have no effect on job growth. Even conservative pundit William Kristol has stated that the GOP shouldn't "fall on their swords" for millionairs.

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.

93 percent of black voters did not vote for Obama just because he is black. I can pretty much guarantee you that if the republicans had a black candidate running for president most blacks would not vote for him. Why? First, republicans are a racist party. So, any black candidate they have would be like Clarence Thomas of the US Supreme Court. He would be an Uncle Tom. Second, republicans never have any good social policies that are in the best interest for black people.
