Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"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 ...

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.

Sorry FOXbots. Again.

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.

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.

Each poignant post is a desperate attempt to justify inane ideas and wild theories.
I recommend a 'save carol' fund be established.
Ironically, all funds received, would have to be rejected as 'tainted gift' money by Carol!
PS - I do enjoy Carol's trips into LaLa Land...
It must be refreshing to be in psychological denial, a masterpiece of banal self-delusion, completely untethered from reality.

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

Applebee's Backlash Sparked By Zane Tankel's Obamacare Slam

Already Applebee's parent company, DineEquity, is distancing itself from Tankel's remarks. "It's certainly our hope that our guests recognize and realize that Mr. Tankel's views are not representative of the broader Applebee's brand," said Dan Smith, a spokesman for DineEquity. Smith said the company has received a torrent of customer feedback on Tankel's comments and noted that individual franchise owners do not speak for all of Applebee's.

Tankel, who declined repeated requests for comment through a spokesman, is just one of several CEOs who've announced they will take drastic measures to deal with Obamacare. Last week, Papa John's CEO, John Schnatter, said he'd likely reduce workers' hours as a result of President Barack Obama's reelection. In October, Jimmy John Liautaud, founder and CEO of Jimmy John's sandwich shops, said he would cut employees' work weeks -- "bring them down to 28 hours" -- in order to skirt Obamacare requirements on providing health insurance for full-time-equivalent employees. Liautaud was a prominent Mitt Romney supporter.

These outspoken businessmen may find such political comments hurt their bottom lines. Some employees seem eager to find new jobs. And customers are threatening boycotts -- on Twitter and Facebook.

<quoted text>
I'm not really qualified. So....
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 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.
