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

And I am so sick and tired of this president always being "offended" by any criticism of his administration.

Could he possibly be MORE narcissistic?

Fox Tries To Prevent Susan Rice Nomination With Libya Smears

Fox News is trying to disqualify Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, from being nominated as the next secretary of state by alleging that she made inaccurate statements about the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. But during her Sunday show appearances, Rice was accurately conveying the consensus of the intelligence community at the time, and there is evidence that the anti-Islam video she referenced did, in fact, play a role in motivating the attack.

Wait another two years. You'll see.
The dooms day rhetoric is becoming a real bore. Do you assume that the majority of Americans are wrong and you are right? That the majority of us WANT another rich man that has only any real interest in the wealthy? That the majority of us want another cowboy type holding the reins of the most powerful country? Dictating terms to other nations and trying to monopolize their resources?The age of empires are over.

We are emerging into a different era,one that Republicans and conservatives,and rightest minded people are just not ready to accept. But guess what? You/they are in the minority AT LAST!! America is waking up and the world is appreciating it.

Jindal:‘Absolutely reject’ Romney’s explanation of loss

In a conference call with donors Wednesday, Romney said Obama won votes by offering enticing “gifts” to key Democratic voting groups like blacks, Hispanics, and the young. Subsidized health care, cheaper student loans, free contraceptives — those were all things Romney said Obama gave those constituencies in order to win support at the polls.“In each case, they were very generous in what they gave to those groups,” Romney told his donors.

Asked about Romney’s comments at a meeting of the Republican Governors Association at the Encore Hotel here in Las Vegas, Jindal did not hold back.“That is absolutely wrong,” Jindal said.“Two points on that. One, we have got to stop dividing American voters. We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent — we need to go after every single vote. And second, we need to continue to show that our policies help every voter out there achieve the American dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children the opportunity to get a great education, which is for their children to have even better-paying jobs than their parents.”

“So I absolutely reject that notion, that description,” Jindal continued. I think it’s absolutely wrong. I don’t think that represents where we are as a party and where we’re going as a party. And that has got to be one of the most fundamental takeaways from this election. If we’re going to continue to be a competitive party and win elections on the national stage and continue to fight for our conservative principles, we need two messages to get out loudly and clearly. One, we are fighting for 100 percent of the votes, and secondly, our policies benefit every American who wants to pursue the American dream, period. No exceptions.”

I assumed people wanted a president who would bring back jobs and manufacturing and who had the qualifications to fix this mess.

But when an incumbent president promises free stuff to the same people he made victims of his big government ideology and liberal women get another wild hair about preserving the killing of their unborn, I assumed wrongly.

Ask Hillary about the lengths to which this administration's campaign will go to decieve and to get their way. Even if it means turning on their own. She was mad as a hornet in 2008.

Here see for yourself.



Hillary: "Shame on YOU, Barack Obama!!"

She was really pissed about Obama's lying in the campaign. And she's one of their own! Just imagine how Romney must have felt.

The president’s mind-set as the “fiscal cliff” approaches is far feistier. He won reelection in a campaign that centered on higher taxes for the wealthy. Even more, in the White House view, the hazard of cliff-jumping is way less than the danger of ceiling-hitting.

So rather than extend the Bush tax cuts for higher-income taxpayers, the president is willing to risk another recession — a move he would blame, and with good reason, on Republican intransigence.

Okay, I'm having fun with this now.

Here are Hillary's words in full context:

"This election is about misleading, false and discredited attacks that interfere with voters being able to make an informed judgment.

"I am not going to stand here and see this campaign polluted by the kind of misleading, discredited and false attacks. We deserve better than that. He's been called out on it, he has been contradicted on it, he knows better and here it is 'Paid for by the Obama for America Campaign.'

"So, shame on you Barack Obama. It is time you ran a campaign consistent with your messages in public, that's what I expect from you. Meet me in Ohio and let's have a debate about your tactics and your behavior in this campaign."

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-502443_162-386837...

"...misleading, discredited and false attacks..."

Does that sound like deja vu or what?

Here is a question? All 50 states have now received the required signatures to call for seceding from the United States. If all 50 states secede what will we call the new country? Is D.C. included. Do we have to let it in? Would it be better to split it up into 5 regional countries?

Mittens blames the 47%.

Sour grapes and zero dignity.

What a putz... Welcome to obscurity Mittens

And, looney toon Santorum warned Mutt was the worst GOP selection! The GOP should have listened.

Mormons picked Obama
Jews picked Obama
Catholics picked Obama
Women, Latinos, Asians, picked Obama
Popular vote & Electorial won by Obama
Senate seats won, control retained
Youth picked Obama
Swings states picked Obama

In short, the GOP was rejected, totally.

Ironically, the 'sore losers' comments are the perfect example of WHY they were dismissed by voters.

Each hostile post confirms how confused and delusional the Repugs have become.

As Republicans dig out from a defeat that their poll-deniers said was impossible, they need to acknowledge many large failures.

Their attempts to demonize President Obama and undercut him by obstructing his agenda didn’t work. Their assumption that the conservative side would vote in larger numbers than Democrats was wrong. The tea party was less the wave of the future than a remnant of the past. Blocking immigration reform and standing by silently while nativist voices offered nasty thoughts about newcomers were bad ideas. Latino voters heard it all and drew the sensible electoral conclusion.

Democrats are entitled to a few weeks of reveling because their victory really was substantial. Obama won all but one of the swing states and a clear popular-vote majority. The Democrats added to their Senate majority in a year that began with almost everyone predicting they’d lose seats. They even won a plurality of the vote in House races; Republicans held on because of gerrymandering.

Just as important, the voters repudiated the very worst aspects of post-Bush conservatism: its harsh tone toward those in need, its doctrinaire inflexibility on taxes, its inclination toward extreme pronouncements on social issues, and its hard anti-government rhetoric that ignored the pragmatic attitude of the electorate’s great middle about what the public sector can and can’t do. If conservatives are at all reflective, we should be in for a slightly less rancid and divisive debate over the next couple of years.
