Barack Obama, our next President

Wait until the EPA starts rolling out more rules. Wait until the 157 commissions and panels in ObamaCare tell us what to do about our healthcare. How many people will be getting food stamps four years from now?
From H. W. Prentis : Observation about democracies planting the seeds of their own demise):
"The historical cycle seems to be: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependency; and from dependency back to bondage once more."
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!!

Get off this thread. It's not for sore losers.

<quoted text>
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.
Go away, you fat little sore loser.

Accept your defeat and act like a woman, not a whiner.

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.

Quit yer bitchin', fatty!!

Accept your defeat and STFU!!

TYhat's a lie.

If that were true, Obama would not have won, esp. in swing states like FL. DUH

We all know Republiclown polls were way off. The proof was shown on Nov. 6th.

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.
You are clueless about Flight 93.

Where is the wreckage? It was never found. Crashed airliners leave massive debris fields. 93 left a scar in the earth and no engines or anything else were ever recovered. Same with the Pentagon.

You really naive enough to believe the Gov't views?? Why'd Bush try to stonewall the 9-11 investigation for months and months??

Why have so many of early witnesses mysteriously died??

You have to go back to the day of the attacks. Every network reported hearing 'explosions' immediately prior to the collapse of the towers.

Witnesses heard explosions before WTC 7 fell, days later.

You're very gullible.

It's very easy to accept the Gov't version of events.

To think otherwise challenges all we've been taught. Most people are sheeple and would rather not think about it.

The numbers say that plenty of old folks also went for Da Bammy concluding that the devil you know is better than the devil you don't know. Many retired people were very turned off by the Mitt's 47% remark and many just tired of the teaparty bullshyte.

This is a sunshine law state, it will be interested to learn how Thee Villages voted compared to 2008__we'll find out this week perhaps.
