Barack Obama, our next President

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?
I hate to use this phrase as it was over used the last few weeks but it fits. The perfect storm? War erupting in the middle east. Recession returning to the Eurozone. Fiscal cliff in the US. Rising taxes in the US. Stock market sell off. Food prices rising and set to really go up in the spring. Layoffs and shorter hours. Sounds like a perfect storm forming to me.

I was actually going to read your post, but yet again, I had to stop when you pulled the race card. When are you morons going to learn....such an worn out card is of no use. It doesn't work, it isn't true, and people are so over being worried about being referred to as a racist? We know we know, everyone that opposes Obama must be racist. It can't possible be because his policies suck, he proved to be nothing more than the typical lying politician, and he is destroying our economy, takes NO personal responsibility for anything, and he is in way over his head.
Oh, and he is the first BI-RACIAL president. Stop giving him credit for something he's not, someday a truly black president will win election and they should be given the credit they would be due....as the FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT. Remember when it's beneficial to Obama even he admits to having a white side. But only when it's beneficial to him, along with how every time his wife speaks he is described as poorer and poorer during his youth. Poor guy, must be tough going to private high schools and expensive top notch colleges.

Most of Sonics posts are from the American Conservative! I don't know about that one, but nevertheless; you must be absolutely delusional if you think racism doesn't exist and as Jimmy Carter so aptly put it "it was always there but with the election of the first black president, it has come bubbling to the surface"
It's not only racism against blacks, it's hispanics as well. And let's not forget the rampant misogyny and homophobia.
It's the angry rich old white guy party who feel that they are entitled to occupy the seats of power and don't want to share.
It's over. Face it.

Figures you two morons would be bonding over an issue bush didn't address in 8 years.
And Obama has deported more Mexicans than any other president in history.
It has already came out that they "double counted" the deportations by counting every time they deported the same individual. That doesn't mean they deported more illegals, it means they deported the same illegals several times because of their lack of concern for illegals entering the country.

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 White House announced on Wednesday that President Obama has nominated Judge William Thomas, an out gay man, to serve on the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Thomas would be the first out LGBT black man to serve as a lifetime-tenured federal judge.

In a statement, Obama noted the diversity of Thomas and six other nominees, saying, "They ... represent my continued commitment to ensure that the judiciary resembles the nation it serves."

He added, "These individuals have demonstrated the talent, expertise, and fair-mindedness Americans expect and deserve from their judicial system. I am grateful for their willingness to serve and confident that they will apply the law with the utmost impartiality and integrity. Too many of our courtrooms stand empty. I hope the Senate will promptly consider all of my nominees and ensure justice for everyday Americans."

Thomas is the first out LGBT black judge to be nominated by Obama, but, if approved by the Senate, he would be the second out LGBT black judge. The first, Judge Deborah Batts, also was the first out LGBT federal judge. She was nominated by President Clinton and sat on the Southern District of New York bench. She took "senior status," a near retirement, earlier this year.

It is unlikely, due to the time nominations take to proceed in the current Congress, that Thomas, currently a state-court judge in Florida, would see a vote on his nomination in this Congress.

Thomas joins Pamela Ki Mai Chen, an out lesbian nominated this summer to serve on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, and Judge Michael McShane, an out judge nominated in September to serve on the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon, in the line of judicial nominees waiting for Judiciary Committee action on their nomination and the subsequent Senate votes.

Obama has now nominated seven out lawyers for lifetime-tenured federal judgeships, three of whom already have been approved by the Senate. Judges J. Paul Oetken and Alison Nathan both now sit on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, which is in Manhattan. Judge Michael Fitzgerald sits on the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California.

The final out LGBT Obama judicial nominee, Edward DuMont, eventually had his nomination withdrawn after there was no movement on it over the course of two sessions of Congress. He was nominated for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in the 111th and 112th congresses, but the nomination was later withdrawn. Democrats cited Republican opposition, but Republicans noted that Democrats could have moved forward regardless of the Republicans' views.

Denis Dison of the Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund told BuzzFeed that Thomas was recommended for a judgeship by the Presidential Appointments Project, which the Victory Fund coordinates.

We're used to the easily fooled waving their sign, Homer.
But I predict you'll be burning it in a few more years.
Patience is the operative word.
I'm still holding out you'll have to come to your senses by 2014 and will be campaigning for the GOP in 2016.
It may be more of an avalanche of support or a rising tide? Should I go with one of those or stick with a groundswell?

Homer already votes for Reps and Dems, I vote the person not the party.

That makes two of us. Wonder what else we have in common? And wouldn't it be nice if folks worked to find more common ground, rather than hurling invective at each other over differences?

I'll go first - I think the President should come clean about Benghazi, and quit hiding under Petraeus'(and Rice's) voluminous skirts. I also think Americans need to dig up, and dust off, our national work ethic. Self-employment is awesome, and tremendously under-utilized. Additionally, I think it's better that ALL Americans (rich-poor-short-tall-white-bl ack-green-Dem-Rep) pitch in to reduce the debt, than it is to keep lobbing random spitballs (!) at why we're in debt in the first place. Let's quit worrying about whose 'fault' it is, because it's everybody's fault - we all let it happen. Now it's time to fix the national mistakes, learn from them, and go about the business of not repeating them.

Yes I did; so many mentally unstable people. Imagine killing yourself because of politics? Kerrriiiist, these people are nuts.
There was a woman I think it was AZ who ran her husband down with a car, not sure if she killed him!
Meanwhile, an 80 yr old man ran down a 76 yr old in the Costco parking lot because he was taking too long to move his car!!
