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

Romney was going to find a way to get Giverment off the back of business, so that they could do business? Until the welfare mentality is shown as what it is, nothing will change.
Although I do agree there aren't enough Black voters who think that way.
It's beginning to change for blacks. Many are taking a second look at the bill of goods they were sold by the democrat party. It's going to take strong black republican leaders speaking out to reach more of them.

He began to feel like he was being used by Christian record producers apparently from what I've gathered. Whether that shook his faith or his newfound belief isn't known. He remains a very private person.
He was pretty involved at the time though going to Bible study classes and even preaching to his audience at concerts which, of course, turned some of them off.
We can't know what's in anyone's heart.
Christians have been dismayed or disappointed by other Christians for some reason or another without it shaking their core belief.
My hope is that this is the case with Dylan.

No, I don't think it's a matter of "getting a message" out. I think we've passed the tipping point-- more people are riding in the wagon (liberals ) than are pulling it (conservatives).
And parasites have as much voting power as a producer. So it makes sense: women will vote for somebody that promises to save them $9/month in birth control. Minorities will vote for somebody that promises them more EBT, Welfare, Section 8, etc. etc. etc.
Neither seem to have the ability to think long term. When everybody is sitting on their butts waiting for the gubbermint to tell them what to do, give them their allowance, feed them, who pays for it?
And most alarming about it is how liberals DON'T MIND being parasites. People used to be ashamed to accept charity. Liberals pride themselves in being pathetic. Needy. Entitled.
I've hidden my assets for the next four years. Lord Obama and the parasites are going to have a rough time finding them. I will enjoy a good show.
Too many have, in fact, become accustomed to a dependent lifestyle. Some not by choice but, others, definitely.

Liberals just can't accept there are people who will take advantage of their good intentions.

Obama is a cruel hoax...he works for Wallstreet. Romney was like a ringer for Obama just acting like he was running for president. He and Obama were almost twin. Count dracula (romney) Babyface nelson (obama).
The Obama so called healthcare tax will ruin America and the poor and the elderly will be the most ruined. Obama used almost 8bill.$$$$ of medicare to pay for obama tax bill. They can't spend the same dollars 2 times.

Rightly or wrongly, Christie has little future in the Republican Party unless he can find a way to redeem himself. Begging for taxpayer money from Obama won't get the job done.
Maybe not your Republican Party but your Republican Party is dead in national level politics. You won't have any choice, who did you vote for this year? Romney really your first choice?

Charles Krauthammer is completely wrong in his recommendation for what the GOP should do next:

Imagine Marco Rubio advancing such a policy [of amnesty] on the road to 2016. It would transform the landscape. Heíd win the Hispanic vote. Yes, win it. A problem fixable with a single policy initiative is not structural. It is solvable.

This is not what would happen. Krauthammer misunderstands the nature of the Republicansí problem in winning Hispanic voters, which goes well beyond any one policy. If it is a solvable problem, it isnít going to be solved by pursuing a failed theory of appealing to Hispanic voters primarily in terms of changing immigration policy. George W. Bush went out of his way to identify himself with a liberalized immigration policy, and even he couldnít win the Hispanic vote. McCainís result was even worse than Bushís 40%. To some extent, the GOP already tested Krauthammerís proposal and gained nothing for its effort.
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/lariso...

Itís fantasy to suppose that any Republican nominee can double the amount of support Romney just received four years from now. The landscape would not be transformed, and a Republican candidate running on a me-too immigration platform would probably see turnout from his core constituencies decline yet again. Whatever amnesty proposal a Republican candidate embraces, it will be perceived at best as too little, too late by those it is supposed to win over, and it will confirm that the party leadership is oblivious if not openly hostile to what its constituents prefer. Itís a political disaster waiting to happen, and quite a few Republican pundits seem only too eager to rush towards it.

Feminists want birth control because they are the ones who are really treating men like sex objects, and don't want children and are scared of being responsible, same with abortion, except whats worse is that its murder. And muslim immigrants don't bother to actually learn the english language but expect Obama to support them while they dump their trash everywhere, and homosexuals, they are just sexual deviants relying on young people to turn them into gay converts.

You're blowing hot air again.....

Do you find yourself being a more religious person these days?

A religious person? Religion is supposedly a force for positive good. Where can you look in the world and see that religion has been a force for positive good? Where can you look at humanity and say, "Humanity has been uplifted by a connection to a godly power"?

Meaning organized religion?

Corporations are religions. It depen is what you talk about with a religion.... Anything is a religion.

At one point, you took on Christianity in a very serious way, and then Judaism. Where are you now with all that?
Religion is something that is mostly outward appearance. Faith is a different thing. How many religions are there in the world? Quite a few, actually.

What is your faith these days?

Faith doesn't have a name. It doesn't have a category. It's oblique. So it's unspeakable. We degrade faith by talking about religion.

What do you take faith in?

Nature. Just elemental nature. I'm still tramping my way through the forest, really, on daily excursions. Nature doesn't change. And if there is any war going on on a big level today, it's against nature.

He's 71 years old. He doesn't look like he used to and he doesn't sound like he used to.

He may be dealing with an internal spiritual battle.

Who knows? Dylan is a deep thinker. He had an unusual and sometimes very rough life. And he's 71 years old.

Give him a break already.

The rightís new line: Obama has no mandate

The president won by wider margins than Bush in '04, but that hasn't stopped the right from dismissing his victory

.....So what would a real mandate look like? Krauthammer helpfully explained on Fox News Sunday the weekend after President Bush was reelected in 2004:

I think it was a huge issue that the president was weak in his first term. He had less of the power and strength and capital, as he speaks of, than he does today. And now that heís been elected with a large majority, or a significant majority, and with a mandate, I think part of that mandate is to get the right judges, by his likes.

Bush won with 286 electoral votes to John Kerryís 252, and with a 2.4 percent margin in the popular vote. Obama currently has 303 electoral votes to Romneyís 206, and heís likely to add to that the 29 votes from Florida, which hasnít been called yet, for a grand total of 332. Itís to early to tell on the popular vote, but it will be between 2 and 3 percent.
