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

Your guesser is broken. I earned my job, being really good at it, and having been chosen from a pool of several candidates. I'm also the owner/operator of my own home-based business. The government had nada to do with either.

But why is that liberals think no one can see and hear with their own eyes and their own ears what is plainly easy to see and hear? From the source itself, I mean?
I stopped listening to Rush during his "Newt Gingrich for President" phase. Doesn't matter to me whether they're Republican or Democrat, a slimeball is still a slimeball.

Dear Angry White Conservatives Who Are Mourning Mitt Romney’s Loss,

If Fox News is any indication, many of you are dismayed, upset, and befuddled by Mitt Romney’s loss to President Obama. Some of these feelings are normal. Politics is tribal. When your team loses, a bit of sadness is expected.

However, some white folks are acting out in some very unhealthy ways. Young white conservatives participated in a near riot at the University of Mississippi where they hurled rocks at bystanders, used racial slurs, and burned Obama and Biden campaign signs. Other angry white folks used the Internet to send out racist messages and pictures on Twitter as an act of protest and anger at the country’s re-election of its first black president. I believe that these events are malicious outliers.

Many white people who voted for Mitt Romney are simply scared and angry that a “black socialist Muslim atheist Communist usurper” was reelected President of the United States.

89 percent of Mitt Romney’s voters were white. 59 percent of the white vote went to Mitt Romney. He also won the majority of white voters in every age and gender group. We live in a country that is racially segregated. The United States is also very polarized politically. At present, Americans are not talking to each other across the dividing lines of race, class, and ideology.

Because many white conservatives only interact with like-minded people who come from the same racial background, it seemed obvious to them that Obama was going to lose on election night. With the defeat of Mitt Romney, they are experiencing the universal hurt that comes when reality interjects itself into a dream world and fantasy.

Many white people are feeling imperiled because President Obama’s win is being framed by the news media as a sign that people of color are gaining political power in the United States. The pundits keep talking about “the browning of America” and how the Republican Party will continue to lose elections if it just relies on white voters to win. I imagine that many white people, especially conservatives and older voters, may be feeling a bit obsolete as the country changes around them.

I am white people’s best friend. As such, I will tell you things that other people will not; I will tell you the truth even when it makes you upset at me.

The media wants to scare you with all sorts of talk about how, in a few decades, America will be a “majority minority” country. You “want your country back” and people mock you for these sentiments. I am a good listener. Other people find joy in your tears and from the sad images of Mitt Romney’s headquarters, Republican rallies, and voters on election night. I feel your pain. I am your friend.

Guess what? Things are going to be okay.

I read about the exchange of rocket fire between Israel and Hamas this morning in the headlines too.

This could be the rumbling volcano we've been anticipating that's about to erupt.

Wonder whose side Obama will be on?

Mexicans aren't whiners - they come here to work, and then they ACTUALLY WORK. Plus, most of them live within their means, even if it means eating beans and tortillas 6 days a week for months, pooling the money from 12 incomes to purchase a house 6 families will live in, and paying cash for a truck they all take turns driving. When was the last time you were willing to strive like this?

And 'Americans' is capitalized.

<quoted text>Where is the list of Obama's out and out lies? You can start with his autobiographies. Or even just the lies by omission.
Like the lie omitted about the taxes the rich are not paying is infinitesimal compared to the taxes that will now fall on the middle class, courtesy of Obamacare.
Omitted is the fact that Obamacare represents the single largest tax hike in America’s history.
Obama has blamed George Bush, the Congress, and now the rich for destroying the economy and jobs; but he has carefully omitted the fact that the huge bloc of voters between the ages of 18 to 29 has had a 12.8% unemployment rate since he took office, and there is no relief in sight. This is the largest group of supporters he had in 2008. Not mentioning this fact worked toward his re-election.
If Obama outright lies and/or lies by omission but the media doesn't report it, is it still a lie?
The autobiography that has the foreword that explains the artistic license?

Largest tax hike?

How can you carefully omit that which even you seem to know about?

If Romney outright lies and/or lies by omission but FOX doesn't report it, is it still a lie?

You're a sad, obsessive, little fraud, carol, and your jabs at the President are couched in your own failure to recognize both sides of this coin.
Didn't anyone ever tell you before that raising taxes in a recession is the worst thing you can do?

How old are you anyway? You obviously haven't been around that long, politically speaking, I mean.

If you keep taxing those who are the job makers, you're going to have more takers than makers.

Surely, you can grasp that.

Since the Supreme Court decision, Republicans have been calling the Affordable Care Act “the largest tax increase in the history of the world.” Politifact rates this false. Kevin Drum’s got a table of the 15 significant tax increases since 1950, and the Affordable Care Act, which amounts to a tax increase of 0.49 percent of GDP, comes in 10th.

Republicans killed their own party by forgetting sound economics and listening to the crazy Christians. I love those southern Christians that back Israel to the hilt but wouldn't let one Jew near their private clubs. Obama is in power because of the crazy Christian Neocons. Thank Karl Rove.

Charles Krauthammer claims “the sword was lowered” on Gen. David Petraeus “on Election Day”: The Obama White House knew of the CIA director’s affair, and they’re using it to punish him for contradicting the administration line on Benghazi during testimony Sept. 14 before the House Intelligence Committee.

At Reason magazine, Judge Andrew Napolitano charges that the administration must have known about Petraeus’s 2010 affair when it offered him the CIA post, and implies that a conspiracy is ongoing:

In the modern era, office-holders with forgiving spouses simply do not resign from powerful jobs because of a temporary, non-criminal, consensual adult sexual liaison, as the history of the FDR, Eisenhower, JFK, LBJ, and Clinton presidencies attest. So, why is Petraeus different? Someone wants to silence him.

This will very likely turn out to be the “all wet” reaction to the Petraeus saga.

Later means I'll be back later. I work at home and have been for the past 12 years. Part-time the past 4 years. But you probably haven't been around long enough to know that. Sometimes I actually have to work to keep my job.

Homer sensing a real groundswell for repealing the Twenty-second Amendment so that Obama can be re-elected again in 2016.

Homer says if you have the right person and they are doing a great job why not?

What say you? Comments? Questions? Aspersions to be cast at Homer?

Absolutely. Barry Goldwater warned them about this and he was right. Get religion out of politics.

An Ace Hardware store owner in Davis, Calif., said she is "deeply sorry" if she offended customers or employees by sending a letter to her workers trying to persuade them to vote for Mitt Romney. Still, Jennifer Anderson doesn't regret her in-house political campaigning and has implied that employees will now suffer the consequences for Obama's win.

So far though it seems like Anderson is the one losing, as more customers threaten to boycott her store.

The Solution To ALL Our Economic Problems Today

"...banking institutions are more dangerous to Our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." - Thomas Jefferson
